to:

* ChekhovsHobby: His interest in military craft proves useful in one episode. In general, he ''likes'' the idea of piloting a mode-changing mecha enough that he keeps doing it.



* TheHero: He ''tries'', but because he's barely a single step above TheEveryman in a SF Horror setting...



* NiceGuy: Despite his flaws, Keita is generally likable.

** It also comes out that, despite some BookDumb tendencies, Keita is ''really good'' at figuring out effective uses of the Synapse Dangeki.

* NonActionGuy: Keita is what you would call... a loaner hero that you use until the real one shows up. At the same time, it doesn't matter what you throw at him, in the Kakuseijin or out of it, he'll keep getting right back up to fight.



* WrongGenreSavvy: After entering the ''Kakuseijin'' in Episode 1, Keita begins to make assumptions based on RealRobot {{Mecha Show}}s. He doesn't realize that he's in SurvivalHorror where the {{Kaiju}} is the real hero.

* IllGirl: Sakura was born with a weak constitution, and she hasn't gotten much better over time. Though she's a Dual Kind - and an extremely useful one, with her Limpid Channel - she's only used as a Head Diver in emergencies. It's pretty much the bane of her existence, to the point that she suggests Keita will survive ''solely'' because she wants the company of someone else her age (and not because she thinks he will survive).

* AscendedFanboy: As a military and video game fan, Keita {{squee}}s every time he sees any high tech device or military units. He also thinks its cool to be piloting a mecha... until the horrors show up.
