* CuteClumsyGirl: Not so much emphasized, but she has her clumsy moments. The most clear example is when she breaks Lin's camera on the first arc.

to:

* MuggleBestFriend: [[spoiler:Subverted]][[spoiler:Subverted after she gains her medium powers, but still acts like a layman on most occasions.]]



* TookALevelInBadass: After discovering [[spoiler: her PsychicPowers, which grow stronger on every arc.]]

* GeniusBruiser
* GratuitousEnglish

to:

* GeniusBruiser
GeniusBruiser: Easily the smartest in the group and [[spoiler: the most powerful psychic of them all.]]
* GratuitousEnglishGratuitousEnglish: Actually justifiable given that he is [[spoiler: actually Oliver Davis, a young paranormal professor from Britain.]]



* {{Jerkass}}: Due to his cases of BrutalHonesty, he may come by as this, but deep down is truly a JerkWithAHeartOfGold.

to:

* {{Jerkass}}: Due to his cases of BrutalHonesty, he may come by as this, but deep down is truly a JerkWithAHeartOfGold. A particularly bad case occured after his DemonicPossession, where he and the team confronted Okubu-sama and seemingly scoffs at the team's failed attempts to exorcise it, but it turns out he [[spoiler: actually is strong enough to end it in one blow and was itching to do it, but he has to maintain his cover and doing it is dangerous for his body, so he may be justified after all.]]



** [[spoiler: Naru goes on a long rant about his dissatisfaction with the Japanese investigation team to [[AgentScully Hirota,]] a government officer. He sounds like a rightfully angry brother about their incompetence in handling that case up until he snapped at Monk, who tried to placate him, that what he was most angry about was the lost of valuable research of his brother's remains. Mai, Masako and Monk are horrified and dread what would Naru do if any of them died in his vicinity.]]

* PowerIncontinence: It's revealed that [[spoiler: this is why he was forbidden from using his psychokinetic powers.]]



*** [[spoiler: As someone with psychic abilities, he was likely ''using'' the comb to make sure Masako was okay. Still touching, though.]]
*** Yes, for his psychometry[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychometry_(paranormal)]] to work he needed to touch something belonged to Masako.

* {{Workaholic}}

to:

* {{Workaholic}}{{Workaholic}}: Played with. He actually only takes cases that truly interests him, but works his ass off on those he took and is always busy.



[[folder: Lin Koujo]]

to:

[[folder: Lin Lin/Rin Koujo]]



* HiddenDepths: [[spoiler: An interesting negative example: Lin is revealed to be racist against the Japanese due to Japanese atrocities during World War II. He even admits that he knows it was long in the past, but that he can't forget his own heritage.]]

He even admits that he knows it was long in the past, past and it's illogical to hold a grudge like that, but that he can't forget his own heritage.]]



* [[spoiler: AwesomeButImpractical: Her ritual requires ancient, living, healthy trees in order to truly work, and one location can only be used once every half a year. That said, when conditions are met, she can easily purify evil spirits en masse.]]



* HiddenDepths: She was perceived as an incompetent miko by the group for her many unsuccessful rituals, but [[spoiler: it turns out she just needed the right conditions, and never made excuses because she knows the others won't believe her.]] Also, despite her arrogance, she genuinely cares for the team.



* TheBigGuy: Among the team, his exorcism method is probably the most direct: blow the spirits away with spells. Personality wise, he's also the most lively of the crew.

* BunnyEarsLawyer: He's actually a rock bassist, so yeah, he's not your traditional japanese monk, but he still gets the job done.

* HiddenBadass

to:

* HiddenBadassHiddenBadass: Naru even notes that he may have underestimated him at one point.



* TheLancer

to:

* TheLancerTheLancer: When Naru was incapacitated, he took up the leadership mantle. Naru also seems to value his input.



* DemonicPossession: Being an exorcist, he specializes in handling this. It's stated that while Takigawa and Rin are much better at driving away and exterminating evil spirits, they still need John because they can't exorcise a spirit or entity inhabiting an object or person without harming the host, which John can easily do.



* FunnyForeigner: Treated as funny mainy due to his accent.

to:

* FunnyForeigner: Treated as funny mainy mainly due to his accent.



** To elaborate, he spoke with KansaiRegionalDialect, which is usually spoken by TheIdiotFromOsaka, ''not'' a caucasian foreigner like him.



** Takigawa actually notes this, saying that John can't be an official exorcist since he's way too young.



* HopelessSuitor: So far, it doesn't look like Naru reciprocates her feelings. Then again, it is [[TheStoic Naru]] who we're talking about, he may not even have noticed she has a crush on him.

[[spoiler: Made harsher when the truth about Glen was revealed and it turns out that, like Mai, it may not have been Naru she actually fell in love with.]]



* KimonoIsTraditional

to:

* KimonoIsTraditionalKimonoIsTraditional: Somewhat made fun of when Mai imagines her going to school in pre-WW2 kimono uniform.

* NearDeathExperience: On the very first arc. The roof was falling down on the room he was practicing an exorcism, and it would've ended him had Mai not warned him and gotten him out of there just in time.

* DemonicPossession: On episode 11, although it's more or a comic relief situation. It is more serious on the eighth arc, when she summons the ghost of a person who was recently killed in order to find out who killed her, and of course, said ghost takes full control of Masako's body to talk to the group.

* NearDeathExperience: On the third arc, a spirit pushes her down the stairs of the school while she was searching on her own. She was found by the others and taken to the hospital by John soon enough though.
