* InterruptedSuicide: Possibly implied in the anime after running away from home. She was about to walk into the ocean, but stopped after she heard a puppy barking from the beach; she adopts the puppy and names it Wanta.
** A stronger possibility than perhaps originally thought. The 2012 Blu-Ray release for the anime includes a manga short set in the anime continuity, a BeachEpisode which reveals that Mayu cannot swim. Also, the manner in which she set her shoes aside before going in may also be indicative. Wanta may have saved her life just by showing up.

* ArchEnemy: To Kurama. At first, he (reluctantly) follows orders to have her recaptured by the facility rather than killed, but that changes pretty soon. Partially to end the threat he recognizes that she poses to the world, but also because Lucy is paying him back in blood for Aiko's death, killing his secretary, dismembering and almost killing his adopted daughter, and (in the manga) [[spoiler:being the reason for Mariko's death, and then directly killing two of her clones in front of him]].



* ArchEnemy: Has the ''extremely'' dubious honor of being the human Lucy seems to hate the most - the one who's still alive, at least. He was the one who oversaw her initial capture, but more importantly he didn't keep his promise to save Aiko if Lucy would surrender, putting him on the same short list as Kouta of humans Lucy will not kill, but for '''''[[CruelMercy very]]''''' [[FateWorseThanDeath different]] [[AndYourLittleDogToo reasons]]. Which makes it sort of fitting that towards the end of the manga, [[spoiler:Kurama accidentally shoots and nearly kills Kouta right in front of Lucy in a way similar to Aiko's death.]]



* DeathByAdaptation: He dies in the anime, but [[spoiler:he stays alive in the manga.]]

* PosthumousCharacter: Died years before the first episode, appearing only in Lucy and Kurama's flashbacks. [[spoiler:At least in the anime. A panel in the manga's epilogue implied that Aiko ''did'' survive the gunshot and grew to adulthood, unbeknownst to Lucy.]]
