* LikesOlderWomen: Yoshimori likes older girl Tokine. Later in the manga, he saves another girl of similar age from a high fall and she briefly becomes his StalkerWithACrush. This has led to others accusing him of preferring older girls. The previous name for this trope, CakeEater, created a pun because he's also a cake otaku.

* BiggerBad: During the Kokubourou.



* BiggerBad: His cooperation with Byaku, which allows Kaguro to gain information to unnerve Gen [[spoiler: (resulting in his death)]] and his subsequent influence over the following events [[spoiler: prior to his death]] make him this.

* BigBad: Of Kokubourou, [[spoiler: though it turns out she's not completely evil as Sen states she doesn't have an evil presence]].
* BiggerBad: While Kaguro does have a lot of influence over the arc, one forgets that she's the real mastermind of the conquering of Karasumori land.

* CaptainErsatz: ''Very'' obviously based on [[Manga/RurouniKenshin Shishio Makoto]]. It doubles as FridgeBrilliance, Shishio after his death tells his loyal henchmen Hoji, that he'll conquer hell, [[spoiler: Since there's a long time between Manga/RurouniKenshin and Kekkaishi's timeline, it's possible that he did in fact do that, considering his strength, and was awarded the form of a high-ranked demon, (ignoring the anime version where he's a bug eyed freak who got scared of being caught), and began serving Kokubourou out of boredom. Since no one in his time was really an equal to him, he began to search for the one person who can truly give the "feeling" of having his life on the line, especially since he can [[CurbStompBattle beat most demons on a reflex]].]]

* CastingGag: His reactions over being called short will be [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist very familiar]] to those watching the dub.

* CastingGag: His reactions over TheComplainerIsAlwaysWrong: The early parts of the series really love to browbeat the guy despite him trying to put his all into what he does, juggling his daily life with his duties as a Kekkashi and it being called short will be [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist very familiar]] pretty stressful. Granted sometimes it's justified (he tends to those watching the dub.favor force over finesse and that can lead into some bone-headed decisions), but more often than not it seems everyone getting on his case for no reason just because he does something they don't agree with (Making cakes as a hobby, him not knowing certain things, a technique going wrong because someone interrupted him, etc).
