* OnlyAFleshWound: Suffers from a shot to her abdomen by Takuto in episode 7. However, the latter is DangerouslyGenreSavvy enough to realize non-varanium bullets won't kill her outright, and wonders how many lead bullets it would take to eliminate her. He's stopped by Seitenshi before he can put that theory to the test.

* OnlyAFleshWound: Suffers from a shot to her abdomen by Takuto in episode 7. However, the latter is DangerouslyGenreSavvy enough to realize realizes non-varanium bullets won't kill her outright, and wonders how many lead bullets it would take to eliminate her. He's stopped by Seitenshi before he can put that theory to the test.



* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: He always seems to be in control of the situations he puts himself in, and seems to know a lot about Rentaro. When he first asked the latter to join forces, he offered a suitcase full of money, knowing that the latter is suffering from money problems. He even tries to make it sound like he wants to protect the cursed children, but Rentaro is smart enough to know that he also doesn't care how many people die to achieve his twisted goals. He then makes a threat about Enju's school the next day, and her status as a cursed child is found out by her classmates and the school, likely because he told them about it.
** Likwise within about two episodes he nearly kills Rentaro with a sneak attack and hides out in a Gastrea infected forest knowing that he can use them to his advantage should Rentaro and the other pairs arrive. Hell he was only defeated because Rentaro had to pull two IAmNotLeftHanded against him and even then, Rentaro STILL couldn't get the upper hand at first.



* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: He's smart enough to realize the one non-varanium bullet he put in Tina's abdomen isn't enough to kill her, and wonders how many lead bullets it would take to kill her. Seitenshi stops him from testing that theory out however.

* KickChick: Most of her combat abilities involves a lot of kicking. Justified, as the boots she wears have the tip of her boots and soles made of Baranuim and the fact that she's a Model Rabbit Initiator, makes kicking, jumping, and agility her speciality.

to:

* JapanesePronouns: Refers to herself by the feminine pronoun ''warawa'' (妾), which is odd as it is usually used by women of noble and archaic background.

* {{Lolicon}}: He actually isn't, but due to working with Enju, he's constantly accused of this. And when he tries to deny it, no one really [[CassandraTruth believes him.]] Naturally this is also the first thing the cursed children in episode 8 ask him when he's trying to teach them at a school he set up with Kisara. Sumire also teases him about this to Tina in episode 9, stating that he's trying to start a harem of lolis.

* {{Expy}}: His mask evokes the Guy Fawkes mask-wearing character V from ''ComicBook/VForVendetta''. His personality and goals, however, are more similar to SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker, especifically his portrait from the 2008 film ''Film/TheDarkKnight''.

* TheAce: In the anime, Rentaro is portrayed as a near-flawless protagonist who excels in many skills and abilities. He's still portrayed as a PragmaticHero though.

** KnightTemplarBigBrother: There are very strong hints of this trope during the Fugitive arch. [[spoiler:Volume 5 even states that Enju has became his ''obsession''.]]

* DeadpanSnarker: Has shades of this, particularly with Enju's unrealistic fantasies such as her crush with him.
* {{Determinator}}: He apparently really strong willpower [[spoiler: to the point that he ''doesn't'' die [[NoOneShouldSurviveThat when stomach and his other organs are falling apart]]. Heck, he even survived getting impaled by Kohina's katanas, getting shot repeatedly by Hiruko and falling down a large ravine into a river below due to his sheer determination to live]].

* [[spoiler:FatalFlaw: The very fact that he refuses to see anyone suffering is one of his biggest flaws of his utilitarian ethics, so he decided to take the emotional burden of the suffering rather than letting Kisara, Enju, and Tina take the emotional burden. Apparently, this caused him to cause ''more'' suffering instead of bringing happiness to others, as he has to learn this the hard way in volumes 5 and 6 after he got arrested with Kisara being forced to marry her former boyfriend, Enju being taken away and forced to pair with a total stranger, and Tina being executed for a crime she didn't commit.]]

* FriendToAllChildren: The reason he's well-liked among the cursed children. He does not see them as vermins, but rather as equals and treat them with kindness. This is also one of the main reasons why he is able to maintain a good LikeBrotherAndSister relationship with Enju [[spoiler:and Tina]] as well as bringing happiness into their lives they never had.
* TheGunslinger: uses a XD pistol to combat the Gastrea.

** GunFu: incoprorates the Tendo style martial arts along with his gun usage.
* [[spoiler: HeroicBSOD: He doesn't take it lightly when he had to MercyKill Kayo and fears the same fate will happen with Enju. Also had another one in volume 2 when he thought Enju was killed off by Tina Sprout ([[SubvertedTrope which surprisingly, Tina spared her life instead]], albeit severely injured)]].
* HatesBeingAlone: Much like Enju, Rentaro cannot imagine his life without Enju, Tina, and Kisara in his life. Not to mention, he brought [[ForHappiness happiness]] to the said characters' lives and in return, they brought happiness into his life.

* [[spoiler:IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: Is this towards Kisara and Enju. At least in Enju's case, he wants her to live her remaining 500 days in her human life a happy life. Deconstructed with Kisara in the Fugitive arch.]]
* [[spoiler:KnightInSourArmor: Well yeah, he's a good guy at heart, but he is more willing to use lethal force if it means to protecting people he cares about and has a [[PragmaticHero pragmatic]] approach in things. He even supposedly killed Kagetane.]]

* ManlyTears: Have many moments of this.
* [[spoiler:MercyKill: Had to perform this on Kayo Senju when her Gastrea virus exceeded critical value. [[HeroicBSOD He does not take this really well]].]]
* [[spoiler: MyGodWhatHaveIDone: In volume 5, after rejecting Kisara's help to get Rentaro out of jail and telling her to find her happiness and sacrificing his own happiness, he later finds out that his Promotor licensed got revoked, Enju being taken away and forced to pair up with a promotor named "buddy killer," and Tina was about to be executed for a crime she didn't commit.]]

* PragmaticHero: While he is a good person at heart, he takes a more rational and realistic approach in life and dealing with problems without going into the AntiHero category. [[spoiler:He's even ''willing to use lethal force'' against Kagetane as well.]]
** He also prevent Enju from saving a cursed child who stole some food, noting that such action would have resulted in a negative outcome between him and Enju.

* WhatMeasureIsANonhuman: Averted. While most people typically see Cursed children as an annoyance, if not a threat, he tries to treat them like normal humans. Unsurprisingly, this makes him more likeable to those girls.
* WhatTheHellHero: Enju asks why Rentaro didn't do anything for the cursed child caught stealing food in episode 2. And when she tried to reach out to Enju, he stopped her. She then asks if he's supposed to be a protector, making him feel guilty about it, and causing him to chase after the police as a result. Although to be fair, Rentaro was [[PragmaticHero being realistic in this situation]] because all of the possible outcomes would have been bad for both him and Enju.

* AllLoveIsUnrequited: She has romantic feelings towards Rentaro. Rentaro [[SubvertedTrope does love Enju]], [[DoubleSubverted but]] [[LittleSisterHeroine love her as a little sister]] rather than a romantic interest.
