* FishOutOfWater: The circus arc shows that Ciel doesn't take well to unfamiliar territories, i.e., actually having to work.
* FlatEarthAtheist: Driven away from all promises of heaven by his experiences in life, despite (or maybe ''[[FridgeBrilliance due to]]'') the fact he has a covenant with an honest, actual-to-truth demon who has freely told him that, yes, there is a heaven, and yes, Ciel will suffer horribly once his soul ends up in the demon's clutches.
* AGlassOfChianti: Occasionally. Given that [[DeliberateValuesDissonance this is Victorian-era England]] no one bats an eye at a 13 year old doing this.
* HatesBeingTouched: He appears to not enjoy physical contact, though he tolerates Sebastian and does not complain when the demon picks him up or holds him. If he is stressed, he will slap someone touching him away, proclaiming, "Don't touch me so easily!" This is a negative influence of the trauma he underwent during his time as a slave.
* HeroicBSOD: In PTSD fashion, Sebastian's actions when trying to save him from the "werewolf curse" [[spoiler:(later revealed to be toxic gas effects)]] bring back painful memories of his time imprisoned. This causes him to lash out against Sebastian, won't let any of the other adults near him. Coupled with him now being blind, he could only cling to the young Finnian for safety. [[spoiler:Sebastian has to nearly eat him to snap him out of it.]]
* IllBoy: He suffers from asthma, for one.

* BrokenAce: He's a very cute young male, the head of the Phantomhive noble family, and runs the Phantomhive Company. He is shown to be extremely competent and intelligent, both at running his company and at learning new tasks. He learns to dance in a short period of time, just through Sebastian's teaching, and it is stated that he takes a variety of lessons from tutors. He also comes across as being a mostly emotionless, cold, intelligent child; he is capable of portraying himself as an engaging, happy, easygoing individual, typically when undercover, but is quick to revert to being callous when he no longer has to hide his true self. Before the loss of his parents, his life as a slave and role as a human sacrifice, however, he seemed to be a happy and energetic child. He also seems to have no qualms with lying to, stealing from, or killing others, so long as it benefits him in some way.
