* AggressiveSubmissive: Celty is a BadassBiker [[HeadlessHorseman dullahan]] who beats up crooks and saves people, while her boyfriend Shinra is a BackAlleyDoctor with a masochistic streak. She's a type B {{Tsundere}} and he enjoys verbally provoking her, which often leads to her wrapping him in shadows as punishment. However, Shinra says "At night, Celty's actually like a little bunnyŚ" which immediately causes her to try and shut him up because she's practically dying of embarrassment from having their sex life discussed in a room full of people.



* InnocentCohabitation: With Shinra. [[spoiler:At first.]]

* MayflyDecemberRomance: Since Dullahans are immortal, Shinra is a regular human while his girlfriend Celty will likely outlive him. is a Dullahan who is presumably hundreds of years old and hasn't aged a day ever since he first met her when he was four years old.



* MistakenForPedophile: Subverted. With Shinra being the very vocal pervert he is, most people tend to assume the worst when it turns out that he's very good with children. Shinra is offended - not because his friends are implying he's a pedophile, but [[ITakeOffenseToThatLastOne because they're implying that he's attracted to anything other than]] [[SingleTargetSexuality headless eldritch psychopomps named Celty]].

* WifeHusbandry: Shinra's really hoping a gender-reversed example with Celty. He met her when he was four, and though she didn't exactly raised him, they lived together as he grew up. And it looks like he finally got his wish... er, [[SlapSlapKiss sort of]].

* {{Jerkass}}: Shinra isn't nearly half as bad as Izaya but he still has his moments. For example, he openly complains about Shizuo visiting him to treat his injuries or bringing wounded people. Not to mention his treatment of Izaya [[spoiler: after the latter got stabbed]]. And mind you, he considers those two to be his friends. Although the anime downplays this slightly, it's still there.

to:

* MemeticBadass: {{In-universe}}; in Ikebukuro anyone who doesn't know who he is [[TheDitz is considered less intelligent than a public school dropout.]] The fandom also consider him as the biggest one to come out of the show, and WordOfGod states that not only is he the strongest member of the ''Durarara!!'' cast, he is one of the top 5 strongest characters to exist in TheVerse, on the same level as ''Baccano's'' own Claire Stanfield, who can supposedly equal him in combat.

* OnlySaneMan: Arguably one of the few mentally and emotionally well-balanced characters in [[DysfunctionJunction the entire cast]]. This especially stands out in the van gang, which consists of three manic {{Otaku}} - including one YaoiFangirl, somebody who [[TranquilFury will set you on fire if you piss him off]], and another guy who '''[[CargoShip REALLY]]''' [[CargoShip likes his van]]. Oh, and the first two are also {{Torture Technician}}s. Poor Kadota.

SmashCut to Walker inquiring the Yellow Scarves about the hit-and-run while hiding molotov cocktails and Togusa threatening to drag whoever ran Kadota over behind his truck until they're just a stain on the floor.]]
