* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: He has three of these. [[spoiler:First, when C.C accidentally undoes his TraumaInducedAmnesia and he remembers that he murdered his father. Second, when he attempts to drug Kallen to get information out of her but stops himself from doing so at the last moment, realizing it's the kind of underhanded tactic he despises Zero for using. Third, when [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fCff-CihCtc&feature=related he fires the FLEIJA nuke while under the effect of his "Live" Geass, kills thirty million people]] (mostly on his side) and spends an ''entire'' episode [[HeroicBSOD brooding]] at the epicenter of the disaster.]]

* TheFool: Lampshaded several times. Most notably when Suzaku announces that [[spoiler:he now believes that the end justify the means and declares "I've been naive until now." [[DeadpanSnarker Lloyd drawls "Nooooooo, you?".]] But also a bit of a {{subver|tedTrope}}sion. He tends to have incredible PlotArmor, [[BlessedWithSuck which he would rather not have]] [[DeathSeeker for particular reasons]]. Which also becomes a major liability for [[CosmicPlaything Lelouch]].

* ScarsAreForever: She has a Geass sigil-shaped scar beneath and partly on her left breast, which never heals. Eventually Lelouch (and the viewer) learn that she got it when [[spoiler:the nun who raised her back in the Middle Ages/Rennaissance forced the Code onto her, making her immortal.]]

* MacGuffinSuperPerson: C.C. gets used as a living MacGuffin, as evidenced by the existence of a special canister designed to contain her. In Code Geass R2, she has this role because [[spoiler:she has a special power that is needed in order for The Emperor's master plan to work]].

* BlueBlood: In a sense. His father was the Prime Minister of Japan, and there are those who want the family to retain power.
to:
* BlueBlood: In a sense. His father was the Prime Minister of Japan, and there are those who want the family to retain power. In the audio drama Nunnally Vanished, Genbu says that arranging a marriage between a Britannian royal and a member of the Kururugi or Sumeragi families could prevent the war (implying that those two families are equally the highest in the land), and Kaguya Sumeragi is often shown and treated as a noble or royal, and referred to as "princess" more than once, so it does make sense to see Suzaku this way.

She initially sets out to find Lelouch, but also expands her goal to stopping bloodshed between Britannians and the Japanese.

Suzaku embodies these tropes: * AcePilot: His natural talent and superior physical capabilities allow him to pilot the [[SuperPrototype Lancelot]], which no one had been able to pilot before]]. In comparison to the other Ace Pilots, though, Suzaku tends to fall short, often relying on the superior capabilities of his unit, followed by his Geass command later in the series.

** In fact, both Suzaku and Lelouch sometimes seem to act as subversions of this trope, as both have large, expressive eyes despite both of them being lying, hypocritical anti-heroes/anti-villains with extremely high body counts. Since Anime/CodeGeass plays this trope straight with most other characters, however, we can assume that their eyes are meant to imply both of their largely noble intentions and capacity for great good despite all the evil things they end up doing.

* FateWorseThanDeath: [[spoiler:While his tombstone praises him as a loyal defender of Emperor Lelouch, given that Lelouch will be remembered as the worst dictator ever, it is likely that Suzaku will go down in history as TheQuisling where Japanese people (except for Kallen, and ''maybe'' Tohdoh) are concerned, and as TheDragon to a deeply evil ruler for everyone else. And to make matters worse, he will ''never be able to be anything but Zero for the rest of his life'', as only [[SecretKeeper a small handful of people know who's under the mask]], and they aren't stupid enough to spill the beans and ruin the plan. On the other hand, he always wanted to be punished for his sins and to become a knight of justice. Technically, he got what he [[IronyHell [[IronicHell wanted]] in a particularly tragic way.]]

** Rather, he tries his best to help and protect as many people as possible with his limited freedom as a Britannian soldier, and desperately (often delusionally) clings to the hope that it's for the greater good whenever he's ordered to partake in, execute or overlook needless violence. At no point does he believe it to be "ok" for anyone. He also seemed completely unaware and ignorant of the wanton killing of Japanese civillians in Shinjuku. It should be noted that he was knocked out for a considerable period of time as he nearly lost his life because he refused to follow his superior's order of murdering Lelouch.
