Added DiffLines:

* HiddenDepths: A notable example before his character development. After his recovery from his first fight with Lucy, Bando needs some body parts replaced and has to be sterilized (encounters with Vectors make human males carriers of Diiclonius genes). The prospect bothers him as he admits that he had wanted to be a father one day.

* EvilIsPetty: Considering he's just [[spoiler: a normal person with some genetic abnormalities]], his desire to TakeOverTheWorld with Diclonius is ultimately either a [[ItsAllAboutMe giant ego trip]] [[AGodAmI over a delusion of being something he never was]], or simply the spiteful machinations of a man [[InferioritySuperiorityComplex who knew he was nothing special.]]



* AxCrazy: He was a violent little psychopath who murdered Lucy's dog just to effectively ''{{Troll}} her.''

* KarmaHoudini: In the anime, in addition to barely getting any screen time, [[spoiler: he never faces a bit of danger and is free to gleefully continue his abhorrent research facility.]]

* LaserGuidedKarma: He killed Lucy's dog in one of the most inhumane manners imaginable for his own demented amusement and is immediately [[ExtremeMeleeRevenge torn apart by her vectors.]] Can't get more karmic than that.



* KarmicDeath: And a very satisfying one at that.

* GoodEyesEvilEyes: Just contrast the innocent Nyu persona's wide, bubbly eyes with the narrow, hateful, tortured eyes of the Lucy persona.

* GoodEyesEvilEyes: Just contrast the innocent Nyu persona's wide, bubbly eyes with the narrow, hateful, tortured eyes of the Lucy persona. It's notable that Lucy's often drawn with nearly the same soft, cutesy expression as Nyu when she's around Kouta, at which point the audience (and Kouta) can only figure out that something's up when Nyu suddenly starts speaking coherent sentences.


Added DiffLines:

** She appears to have mostly gotten it out of her system in the present. Shortly after we see the flashback where she dips into mass murder out of jealousy, she smacks a vector in Yuka's face (probably the least harmful form of aggression she can display with her vectors) in response to seeing Kouta and Yuka holding hands, and when Kouta expresses concern for Yuka appearing to just fly backward for no reason, Lucy calmly accepts that he's "taken" and never even considers laying a finger (visible or invisible) on Yuka again.

Added DiffLines:

* ApeShallNeverKillApe: Subverted with Nana when the latter tries taking her back to the research facility. She admits that she didn't really want to kill another Diclonius and tried to simply let her off with a warning, but that goes out the window when Nana refuses to back down, and she ends up gleefully turning poor Nana into a quadruple amputee and only stops short of killing her thanks to outside interference. Since every Diclonius she fights (including Nana) is working for people trying to recapture her, this reluctance never really comes into play.


Added DiffLines:

* MakeItLookLikeAnAccident: On the occasions that Lucy feels like being subtle, she simply pops a vessel in the victim's brain or heart. However, her flashback with Aiko shows that Kurama was still able to track her down when an area had too many deaths by sudden heart attacks or cerebral hemorrhaging to be a coincidence.

* ReiAyanamiExpy: It could be said that she's a rather extremely ''dark'' take on the archetype. She has pale skin, unnatural hair and (in the anime) eye color, indeterminate origins, isn't entirely human, has a very cold demeanor (even after defrosting) unless she's killing someone, serves as a LoveInterest to the main male lead Kouta, and is [[UndyingLoyalty single-mindedly devoted]] to him. However, her single-minded devotion to Kouta had lead to deadly consequences for everyone involved. She also suffers a significant injury, is they key to the {{Big Bad}}'s plans, and, closer to the original take, [[spoiler:serves as an ApocalypseMaiden in the climax]].

Will all of those facts, she's one of the few examples who actually stays true to the original character's UnbuiltTrope nature.
