%% BadassPreacher* BadassPreacher: Not only she's a {{Miko}}, but a powerful LadyOfWar.



* UngratefulBitch: After Kagome saves her from Naraku's poisoning in episode 151, Kikyo explicitly tells Kagome that she won't thank her for doing so because Kagome [[ChronicHeroSyndrome never considered doing anything else]]. This is just Kikyo putting on a facade though, as she's seen to be secretly touched by Kagome's action as soon as she leaves.

HalfBreedDiscrimination: She and her human mother Shizu are badly treated by the humans of their village. Taigokumaru isn't much kinder either.

HalfHumanHybrid: [[HumanMomNonhumanDad Born to a bat youkai dad and his human girlfriend]].



* NotSoDifferent: Just like Inuyasha, she's suffered at the hands of people simply for being a half-demon. Because of this, as well as her [[WouldntHurtAChild age]], Inuyasha is ''extremely'' reluctant to kill her, even for the sake of enhancing the Tessaiga.
* YouKilledMyFather: When she discovers that Taigokumaru killed her father, she promptly expels him from the barrier, giving Inuyasha free rein to attack and kill him.

* TheAce: One of the few yokai who doesn't explicitly come after the Shikon shards for their immense power, he doesn't ''need'' it, and he ''knows'' it, all he ever really seeks is the fullest of the power derived from his own family. Even among other highly powerful yokai in the series; his full yokai blood and heritage give him [[ComboPlatterPowers an incredibly varied moveset]], he's only ever brought to mortal danger a handful of times through the entire run, and he's an InstantExpert with any weapon he touches.



* BigBrotherMentor: Toyed with. Attempting to get Sesshomaru to form this kind of bond with Inuyasha was one of the true purposes behind him receiving the Tenseiga. However, Sesshomaru saw took this as a slight and this never really came fruition as intended. Ultimately, [[spoiler:he does go through with helping Inuyasha by giving him the mastered form of the sole offensive strike of the Tenseiga to allow Inuyasha the true completed Tessaiga as wished by their father; but not without being understandably bitter about the affair.]]



* MasterSwordsman: He's able to use any weapon to its full potential the moment he gets his hands on it. This is most evident in the few occasions when he uses Tessaiga - Inuyasha, for whom the sword was ''made'', has to be actively thinking about protecting a human before it will change from a rusty piece of junk to a usable blade, and it takes him at least a season to master the Wind Scar to the point that he can use it at will. Sesshomaru is able to fire off Wind Scars immediately. He gets similar results with Tokijin, Bakusaiga, and even Sango's Hiraikotsu. His own heirloom is a bit of a special case, it's not that he can't make it work, he knows full well already that it's useless for what he generally ''prefers'' to do. Once he willingly lets it guide him for the first time, he has no issues with seeing and subsequently dispatching pallbearers. This is then played straight with its only combat-ready skill, which he displays unnatural speed at learning once more. This is lampshaded by Totosai, who remarks during a number of various sessions with ''both'' of them; that Sesshomaru has a gift for bringing out the latent abilities in almost every weapon he comes across while his brother must always take the long complicated route to mastery.

[[spoiler:Their father seemed to anticipate this talent in Sesshomaru and bequeathed him the part of Tessaiga (forming the Tenseiga in the process) that had one its most powerful and lethal techniques, the strike which opens up the abyss, explicitly so ''he'' could master it and pass it on to the Tessaiga and Inuyasha later on knowing Inuyasha would likely be incapable of learning the technique properly. He ultimately does this, but not without extreme bitterness.]]



* PoisonousPerson: Able to channel acid through his claws; he used this power quite often during his first appearances, but not so much in his later ones.

* PoliteVillainsRudeHeroes: He and Inuyasha have no love lost between them, but Sesshomaru is formal but contemptuous while Inuyasha is generally rude and disrespectful to almost everyone to begin with.

* PureIsNotGood: At times, Kikyo is aligned against Inuyasha's group and uses her purifying priestess powers to thwart their efforts, since she's a DarkMagicalGirl who wants to face Naraku all alone.



* RevengeBeforeReason: Even after Kagome informs her that Naraku set them up and that Inuyasha still loved her, Kikyo flat-out states that she doesn't care because it won't bring her back. Eventually, however, she is able to accept this and focus her efforts on Naraku.

to:

* RevengeBeforeReason: In episode 23, Kikyo plans to drag Inuyasha to Hell with her as revenge for allegedly betraying and killing her. Even after Kagome informs tells her that Naraku set them up and that Inuyasha still loved her, her despite everything, Kikyo flat-out openly states that she doesn't care because it won't bring her back. Eventually, however, doesn't change the fact that she is able to accept this and focus died. However, after confirming Kagome's story with Kaede, Kikyo focuses her efforts on Naraku.Naraku from there on out. It's still this trope though, but in a different way [[spoiler: that ultimately doesn't work out for her in the end]].



* UngratefulBitch: After Kagome saves her from Naraku's poisoning in episode 151, Kikyo explicitly tells Kagome that she won't thank her for doing so because Kagome [[ChronicHeroSyndrome never considered doing anything else]]. This is just Kikyou putting on a facade though, as she's seen to be secretly touched by Kagome's action as soon as she leaves.

* SayMyName: Yells Izayoi's name a lot even in what minimal on-screen time he's given in the prologue of the third movie. Which explains where Inuyasha gets the habit.
