* BirdsOfAFeather: She and Tomoya share similar interests or and they both love trolling Sunohara.



* CovertPervert: A couple examples, but we don't get to see what she was thinking. One where Kyou is trying to think of why Ryou is embarrassed and immediately concluding they must have done something inappropriate in public. A second example is her blush and disappointment that Tomoya didn't enter the laser tag game in Kappei's route. The winner would get to order the other to do whatever they wanted for a week.

* ThrowTheBookAtThem: Her WeaponOfChoice is a dictionary. Usually aimed at Youhei, but sometimes at Tomoya, especially when she thinks (or pretends to think) he's plotting to eat her pet baby boar Botan. (See TeamPet, above.) (She usually hits Youhei, whereas she usually misses Tomoya. Presumably this is at least ''in part'' intentional on Kyou's part.)

* DeadpanSnarker

to:

* DeadpanSnarkerDeadpanSnarker: Like [[VisualNovel/{{Kanon}} previous]] [[VisualNovel/{{Air}} protagonists]], he gives off snarky remarks most of the time and he's more cynical than the previous two.



* {{Delinquents}}: He periodically attempts to reform, under the influence of Nagisa (in the main series), Tomoyo (in the [[AlternateUniverse Tomoyo arc]]) or Ryou (in the [[AlternateUniverse Kyou arc]].

to:

* {{Delinquents}}: Tomoya doesn't look for trouble, but he usually comes late to class, sleeps in class or skips them entirely. Occasionally, he may have a brawl, but that doesn't happen often. He periodically attempts to reform, under the influence of Nagisa (in the main series), Tomoyo (in the [[AlternateUniverse Tomoyo arc]]) or Ryou (in the [[AlternateUniverse Kyou arc]].



* DrivenToSuicide: PlayedForLaughs. In Sunohara's route, when Mei tells Tomoya that he's like her brother, Tomoya wants to kill himself. And when she says that Tomoya and Sunohara are buddies, Tomoya picks up a lexicon, looks up for the meaning of buddy, and then decides to kill himself.



** [[spoiler: In the movie, his own father points this out.]]
* MenDontCry: [[AvertedTrope Completely and utterly averted]], which speaks volumes for his kindhearted character. (This doesn't prevent him from continually calling Nagisa a crybaby, though. Which she is.) See also ManlyTears.

* MenDontCry: [[AvertedTrope Completely and utterly averted]], which speaks volumes for his kindhearted character. (This doesn't prevent him from continually calling Nagisa a crybaby, though. Which she is.) See also ManlyTears.)
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Tomoya is responsible for most of the troubles that happen in Sunohara's route. The idea of having a fake girlfriend for Sunohara comes from Tomoya, but he does not suggest that Sunohara could simply just spend time with his sister and be honest with her, something that Nagisa (who is one of the possible fake girlfriend candidates) persuades Sunohara to do so twice. But every time that would happen, Tomoya simply ignores Nagisa's advice and pushes Sunohara to not be honest since he has no faith in Sunohara. When Sunohara has a serious crush on his fake girlfriend, Tomoya doesn't bother to tell him the truth about the fake girlfriend being a married mother, which would most probably not lead to Sunohara's egoistic and foolish behaviour for the rest of route. But once Sunohara has already started to act like a love-crazy fool, Tomoya only realizes what a big of mistake he has made when he sympathizes with Mei. Prior to not meeting Mei, Tomoya could not believe that she would be a cute and normal girl since he has a very strange image of Sunohara and therefore his family in his mind. Later on, when Tomoya reveals to Sunohara that he's Mei's "secret boyfriend", he doesn't realize that Sunohara, albeit he's upset of Mei having a older boyfriend, actually trusts Tomoya to take care of her. But since he's not really her boyfriend, Tomoya merely watches Mei's painful efforts until the line is crossed.



* PanickyExpectantFather: [[spoiler: A justified example, given Nagisa's health and subsequent death giving birth to Ushio in the bad ending.]]

to:

* VitriolicBestBuds: With Sunohara. Tomoya trolls him whenever he can, doesn't treat him with respect and he refuses to view him as his friend.



* {{Expy}}: To Shiori from ''VisualNovel/{{Kanon}}'', another IllGirl who would die due to her weak body.



* ChildhoodFriendRomance: In her route in the VN. In the anime, she loses to [[spoiler:Nagisa]]. [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy Not that she put up much of a fight to begin with]].

to:

She's notably in the only one of the five main heroines to be ChildhoodFriends with Tomoya, in contrast to the five heroines of ''VisualNovel/{{Kanon}}'' of which four of them have met the protagonist in the past.



* GirlishPigtails

[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kotomi_clannad.jpg]]
-> Voiced by: Creator/MamikoNoto (JP), Creator/EmilyNeves (EN)

Kotomi is a strange girl: she has NoSocialSkills and is [[ShrinkingViolet fearful and asocial]]. Generally she is [[TheQuietOne silent]]. She squirrels herself away [[{{Bookworm}} in the school library]] -- she is always kneeling on the library floor, reading. ''Absorbing'' [[TeenGenius several pages of abstruse text per minute]]. Kotomi also likes to [[DoesNotLikeShoes go barefoot]] in the library like it's her own home, almost instinctively removing her shoes and socks during her visits there. However, her footwear-doffing compulsion sometimes extends beyond the walls of the library- along with the urge to [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} snip pages from books with scissors.]]

When Tomoya meets her, he manages to cut through some of her protective layers and socialize with her a bit, but each time he attempts to start up a conversation with her she won't notice him and respond unless he remembers to call her "Kotomi-chan". She has a deep-seated fear of bullies and a mysterious man in a black suit.

Kyou's pet baby boar.



* FriendToAllChildren: In ''~After Story~'', she's the pet for Ushio's kindergarten class and is very gentle with the children.
* PetBabyWildAnimal: A ''boar'', not exactly a common pet, especially for a teenage girl.
* PluckyComicRelief: Botan almost never appears in serious scenes. When she does appear, it's generally for cuteness or humor.
* PokemonSpeak: Puhi~
* PunnyName: Kyou presumably intends the name to mean "button" -- perhaps as in "cute as a button," which she is -- but Tomoya [[DeadpanSnarker jokes]] that the name refers to botan nabe, a Japanese pork soup.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: When she first appears, both Tomoya and Youhei agree that she's adorable. Even as a full grown boar, she hasn't lost this quality.

* TeamPet: Along with Misae's cat, she helps easing the mood and Kyou is quite happy with her.
