* BreakoutVillain: Though he was a one off villain he's easily become one of the most famous of Devilman's enemies and one of the Manga's most recognized characters.



* EvenEvilHasStandards: It's implied in the original manga that he believes in the betterment of demonkind and when Silene calls for help he sends a small squadron of demons to back her up. It makes his criticism of [[spoiler:Satan for sacrificing Amon]] come across less as PragmaticVillainy and more a quasi PetTheDog moment.



* BoomHeadshot: [[spoiler: Poor kid gets his head stapled to the staircase by a crossbow bolt in ''Amon: Apocalypse of Devilman''.]]

* GoodParents: The two are kind and loving parents, even raising Akira as one of their own as he lost both of his parents.

* TooDumbToLive: after Akira sarcastically tells her to kill herself because “only death can cure a fool” she decides to commit suicide. She soon proves to be too dumb to die later because Akira soon finds her trying to slit her throat with a paper knife (she was worried about hurting herself with a real knife).
