Added DiffLines:

** Though Kuroko gets all the fancy passes from Manu Ginobili, Taiga gets Manu's penchant for throwing passes between opposing players' legs.

* MeaningfulName : His surname literally means Grey Peninsula. The grey part is the ColourfulThemeNaming as he's also from Teikou, when the peninsula part means he's different with the other Teikou alumnus, as he was kicked out and later dyes his hair, like a peninsula that is the only bit of land surrounded by the vast ocean.

Still, he is a peninsula, not an island. He is still connected to the Generation of Miracles by the fact they all graduated from Teikou, and he is the player with power closests to them after Kagami. He admits it himself that he feels out of place in Teikou basketball team.



* MeaningfulName: His surname can be interpreted as 'the gathering of the rainbow'. Literally it means "Rainbow Village"

'''Height/Weight:''' 168cm/57kg]]

The protagonist of the manga - [[CharacterTitle pretty obvious given his name is
190cm/82kg]]

An extraordinary basketball player, he lived
in the title]] - United States until partway through middle school. Upon returning, he was a member finds himself disappointed at the level of basketball in Japan. After learning about the Generation of Miracles team in Miracles, he makes it his middle school days. Together goal to take them down with Kagami, he now aims to bring all the help of them down.

Kuroko.

->Voiced by: Creator/KenshoOnoCreator/YukiOno




* AffectionateNickname: Aomine calls him "Tetsu" and Momoi calls him "Tetsu-kun".
* AuthorAppeal: Fujimaki has stated in the most recent Kuro Fes interview that Kuroko is his "other self".
* BadassBookworm: Reading is his favorite hobby.
* BenchedHero:
** Due to the nature of his misdirection (it weakens the longer he stays on the court) and his stamina, he constantly has to be benched some time into the game.
** [[spoiler:In the match against Seihou. The secondary reason is so that he can save his energy for the next match against Shuutoku, the primary reason is that the seniors want to avenge their loss against Seihou themselves.]]
** Averted against [[spoiler:Touou though, as the weakening of his misdirection was required for Misdirection Overflow.]]
* BerserkButton: Yeah, he's apathetic most of time but insult or injure his sempais or friends... and you'd better watch out.
* BewareTheQuietOnes: The fact that he's always soft-spoken and polite does ''not'' mean that he never gets angry.
--> '''Aomine''': You're going to lose this game. The reason is simple: you made Tetsu angry.
* {{Bishonen}}: To a lesser degree than other players, as InUniverse his appearance is unremarkable, but he still shows signs of this.
* CharacterTics: Playing with his wristband [[spoiler: which is actually a memento of Ogiwara.]]
* CharacterTitle: The manga is about him and his basketball style.
* TheChessmaster: ''Very'' subtly shown in the Kaijou and Kirisaki Daiichi Winter Cup match.
* ConfusionFu: His whole playstyle is based on confusing his opponents and disappearing from their view when they're looking at something else.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: He has both blue eyes and blue hair.
* DangerousForbiddenTechnique:
** His Misdirection Overflow is a non-lethal example. [[spoiler:Every time he uses this mode, Kuroko's misdirection (his main weapon) becomes less effective on everyone who's wacthing and ''completely uneffective'' on the team he's playing against]].
** During the game against Rakuzan it turns out [[spoiler:Vanishing Drive and Phantom Shot also took a toll on Kuroko's misdirection.]]
* DavidVersusGoliath: When Kagami is in trouble, Kuroko often takes the burden of facing other members of the Generation of Miracles himself. Special mention goes to when he [[spoiler:defends man-to-man against Murasakibara, the center of the Generation of Miracles and the largest basketball player in the manga]].
* DeadpanSnarker: He likes to provoke Kagami while not losing his [[TheStoic Stoic]] appearance.
* [[spoiler:EleventhHourSuperpower: He got Quasi-Emperor Eye, which can only predict his teammate's movement, but in terms of how far into the future, he can see further than Emperor Eye from Akashi and Kise.]]
%% * EvenTheGuysWantHim
* {{Expy}}: Arguably of Manu Ginobili, minus the hair and the Euro step.
* FantasticallyIndifferent: While he certainly does have emotions, he rarely lashes out and is considerably more reserved and expressionless than his friends. You wouldn't be able to notice a change to anger or surprise just based on expression alone.
* {{Foil}}: To HotBlooded Kagami.
* TheGadfly: He claims to not have a sense of humor, but there are times when he messes with other people just for the hell of it. In one hilarious example, he lies during his portion of the "How long have you been there"/"I've been here the whole time" RunningGag, as it's obvious that this time he only just arrived.
* HasAType: Of the platonic variant. Ogiwara, Aomine, and now Kagami... Ogiwara and Kagami have quite similar facial features/colorings. Aomine and Kagami are almost identical in build.
* HighHopesZeroTalent: Kuroko was initially this when he was at Teikou, where despite being terrible at the game, he continued playing because of his love for basketball. Subverted later on when he gains his skill of misdirection.
* HurtingHero: Due to his experiences in his last year at Teiko.
* HyperAwareness:
** His misdirection skill requires him to observe his opponent's body language and habits in order to make it effective. [[spoiler: This also becomes crucial in winning the second Kaijou match, where he completely predicts ''all of Kise's moves''.]]
** This is even more notable when it's about Kuroko's teammates. Having played with them for a long while, he can predict their moves [[spoiler:better than Akashi]].
* ItOnlyWorksOnce: [[spoiler:If Kuroko uses his Misdirection Overflow on a team, he'll never be able to use misdirection again on that particular team, as they'll be able to see right through him]].
* JapanesePronouns: Uses ''boku'', in keeping with his [[{{Keigo}} manner]].
* MeaningfulEcho: One that goes back about two hundred or more chapters. One of the first things Kuroko tells Kagami when they first meet is his famous self-description, "I am a shadow". While the concept and even the words shows up at other points during the manga, the line itself truly comes back in full force and meaning [[spoiler: during the last play of the last match in the manga, when he repeats it to Akashi (who believes Kuroko is going to shoot) before passing to Kagami]].
* MeaningfulName: His name is also the name of stagehands in Japanese theater (kabuki) who dress in black and are supposed to be perceived as invisible by the audience.
* MundaneMadeAwesome: All of his abilities rely upon his "Misdirection", which is treated as almost like a supernatural resource instead of a social phenomenon.
%% * MusclesAreMeaningless: {{Subverted}}. Has them but is rather weak.
* TheNicknamer: [[CrowningMomentofFunny Only one instance, but very notable]].
--> '''Riko:''' His name is Papa Mbaye Siki.
--> '''Hyuuga:''' That Papa Nbai ... what was it?
--> '''Kagami:''' Papa Nba...
--> '''Riko:''' Kuroko! Find a nickname for this guy!
--> '''Kuroko:''' *thinks* 'Papa.' .... Dad.
* TheNondescript: His ability is a weaponized version of "being ignored": his misdirection skills gives him an advantage in steals, and his assists become nigh unpredictable. But even off-court, his teammates tend to forget he's there.
* NoSenseOfHumor: Claims so, but that might actually be a part of his brand of humor.
* NowLetMeCarryYou: Part of the reason why he wants to help Aomine so much is that [[spoiler:back in middle school Aomine was the one to convince him not to quit the club when he was told he didn't have the skills to become a team regular.]]
* OddFriendship: With his {{Foil}} Kagami, and with Aomine in the past.
* OddNameOut: He's the only member of the Generation of Miracles whose hair and eyes aren't the same color as his name.
* RedOniBlueOni: With Kagami. If you can't tell who's who, it's... ColourCodedForYourConvenience
* SixthRanger: Because of the nature of his basketball, he tends to be this.
** TheSmartGuy: However, he's actually more of this at Serin, given how integral he is to their strategies... not to mention that he's in nearly every game for a sizable length of time.
* SpockSpeak: He tends to speak very calmly and [[{{Keigo}} politely]]. [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness When he breaks out of it...]]
* StealthHiBye: People tend not to notice when he enters a room, or even when he's been there for hours.
* TheStoic: Part of his basketball style, as he needs to mantain his [[TheNondescript Nondescript]] appearance.
** NotSoStoic: From time to time, mostly during crucial matches.
* SupportingProtagonist: In every sense of the word.
* TeamSpirit: His personal philosophy when it comes to basketball.
* TokenGoodTeammate: To the Generation of Miracles.
* TookALevelInBadass:
** In the beginning, he really was the "shadow" of the group. He is crucial to the game but doomed to remain in the background. With his development of the Vanishing Drive and the Phantom Shot, he has played an even bigger part in gameplay rather than just circulating passes. In one of the recent chapters, [[spoiler:he managed to score a buzzer beater]], something he never thought he would be able to do.
** {{Subverted}} during the Rakuzan game: it turns out [[spoiler: all the Levels in Badass he has taken have made him stand out, thus weakening his only ''real'' weapon, his misdirection]].
* UncattyResemblance: Tetsuya #2, the TeamPet.
* WeakButSkilled: He doesn't have the talent or the build for basketball, but because of his highly refined and practiced skill at misdirection, he was able to achieve the status of the "Phantom Sixth Player" of the legendary Generation of Miracles. The other genius members of the team also acknowledge his skills, which is definitely saying something considering how arrogant all of them are.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: A particularly explicit example, considering he manages to have light blue hair and yet go ''completely unnoticed'', not only in everyday life, but during basketball games, when there are only nine other people besides him on the court. WordOfGod states that he inherited his odd hair color and weak presence from his mother. His father [[MeaningfulName appropriately has black hair]].

->Voiced by: Creator/RyoheiKimuraCreator/SoichiroHoshi



* TheAce: For Kaijou High.
* AdaptationPersonalityChange: In the official fanbook, the author himself says he believes Anime!Kise is a little "too soft" compared to his manga counterpart, who according to [[WordOfGod Fujimaki]] is [[http://krbstokka.tumblr.com/post/104327951677/kuro-fes-interview-fujimaki-sensei-talks-the more cold-hearted and only affable to those he acknowledges.]]
* AffectionateNickname: Momoi calls him "Ki-chan".
* AllYourPowersCombined: [[spoiler:His Perfect Copy copies all the GOM's abilities, the abilities which he couldn't copy before, including Kuroko's.]]
* AntagonistAbilities: [[spoiler:By copying Akashi's Emperor Eye, he can basically steal the ball from anyone at any time as long as he is in Perfect Copy mode]].
* AwesomenessByAnalysis: The true source of his copying abilities.
* {{Badass}}
* BeatThemAtTheirOwnGame: Kise has a tendency to do this by combining his PowerCopying skill with his outstanding physical abilities.
* BenchedHero: [[spoiler:Has to sit out much of the rematch against Seirin due to his GameBreakingInjury.]]
* {{Bishonen}}: Acknowledged InUniverse, where he even works as a model and flocks of fangirls follow him wherever he goes.
* ButtMonkey: His teammates seem to love mistreating him, at least partly due to envy for his popularity and ChickMagnet status. But most of the time, it's because he seems to be a bit eccentric.
* ColorFailure: After being pulled into the top tier of Teikou's basketball club, Kise reacts in this manner upon seeing Kuroko, his mentor, completely miss an unguarded layup.
* ChickMagnet: He's acknowledged as ''extremely'' good looking InUniverse, and he's also casually good at everything he does.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* DopeSlap: [[ButtMonkey Frequently a recipient of this]], courtesy of [[TheCaptain Kasamatsu]].
* DudeLooksLikeALady: Kise has a more effeminate face in comparison to others, with his {{Bishounen}} good looks, thinner frame, piercing, and long eyelashes; it's possible the only reason he hasn't been mistaken for a girl is due to how tall he is.
** [[CaptainObvious And the fact that he's about as muscular as Kagami.]]
* DumbBlonde: Sometimes has shades of this. He's not really stupid, though, just extremely {{Keet}}.
* [[spoiler: EleventhHourSuperPower]]: [[spoiler: Awakens The Zone in Chapter 5 of Extra Game close to the end of the third quarter, uses it in tandem with Perfect Copy, and closes the gap between Vorpal Swords and Jabberwock to almost single digits by ''himself.'' And Midorima notes that although it will vastly amplify the drain on his stamina, combining the Perfect Copy with the Zone unambiguously makes Kise '''the strongest player on the court''' (at a time where such super-talented people like Aomine [who's already in the Zone], Akashi, Murasakibara, Kagami, Nash Gold Jr., and Jason Silver are playing).]]
* EveryoneLovesBlondes: Despite his ButtMonkey status, he's probably the Generation of Miracles member that goes along the best with his new teammates. His light-hearted personality helps.
* EvilCounterpart: He has one in Haizaki and notably replaced him as a Teikou first-string regular.
* FacePalm: When he first gets to know the Generation of Miracles, this is his general reaction.
* GameBreakingInjury: [[spoiler:Suffers one inflicted by Haizaki, which affects him in his next match against Seirin. Doesn't stop his Perfect Copy though.]]
* HeterosexualLifePartners:
** He's very close to the captain of his team, Kasamatsu.
** During his Teikou years, he and Aomine were exceptionally close and after Aomine's CharacterDevelopment in the Winter Cup, they're building it back up.
** Thought he was this with Kuroko when they were in Teikou, only for Kuroko to firmly deny this.
* HourOfPower: [[spoiler:His Perfect Copy is said to last only 5 minutes due to the strain it puts on his body. He manages to stretch it for an extra 2 minutes in the rematch against Seirin, probably because he spent most of the match on the bench because of his injury.]]
* {{Keet}}
* ManlyTears: Due to his emotional nature, he often cries during dramatic moments. [[spoiler: Like when Kaijo lost their Interhigh match against Tōō.]]
* MrFanservice: He usually has an energetic and positive personality.
* TheNicknamer: He adds "cchi" to the end of the names of people he's acknowledged, whether they want him to or not.
* PowerCopying :
** He has the ability to copy any basketball move he sees and make it his own.
** His ability works with skills outside of basketball, too, as the light novels showed us him copying a kid playing DDR. In fact, this is deconstructed as he quickly gets bored of whatever he does, because he learns things so quickly. Reconstructed when he joins the basketball team and finally finds someone whose ability he can't copy easily (Aomine).
* TerribleArtist: WordOfGod states that he's terrible at drawing.
* OnlySaneMan: Kise is this upon befriending the ...eccentric group known as the Generation of Miracles. (He soon grows into their antics, of course.)
* SixthRanger: The last to join the Teikou basketball team's Generation of Miracles.
* VerbalTic: Ends several of his sentences with "-ssu".

176cm/65kg]]

->Voiced by: Creator/DaisukeOnoCreator/TatsuhisaSuzuki



* TheAce: For Shuutoku.
* AdjustingYourGlasses: Adjusts his glasses by the bridge in many of his appearances.
* AffectionateNickname: Takao calls him "Shin-chan."
* AlwaysAccurateAttack: His shooting accuracy is 100%. His range is the ''entire court''.
* AntagonistAbilities: He doesn't need to out-play his opponents most of the time. He can fire a three-pointer from anywhere on the court, meaning that even if you go basket-for-basket with him, as long as you're scoring from the inside, he can still out score you.
* {{Badass}}: Shoots full-court shots and is confident enough to turn around before it even reaches the net? Definitely a badass.
* BecauseDestinySaysSo:
** PlayedWith. On one hand, he diligently follows horoscopes and often talks about how a victory or a loss was predetermined. On the other hand, his philosophy is that destiny will help you only ''after'' you have done everything you possibly can.
** He also distances himself from Kuroko, saying that they naturally do not get along due to their conflicting bloodtypes.
* BornLucky:
** Or it could just be due to his devotion to horoscopes. Outside of his claims that it helps his ImprobableAimingSkills a lot, he always wins at games of chance such as jan-ken-pon (rock-paper-scissors) and coin flips, and his lucky pencil die? He lent it to Kagami and Kagami proceeds to score ''98%'' in a multiple choice test in a subject he was failing!
** In the novels he gets an unlucky day when he's rendered unable to follow his usual procedures to keep his luck high, so it could very well be the latter.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: The whole horoscope bit. He checks his horoscope everyday, buys and carries his daily lucky item around him without fail and makes sure no one messes with it. But he's this trope because he's a ''phenomenally'' good shooter, and even does things like tape his fingers off the court to protect them, believing even the slightest injury can throw his shots off.
--> '''[[TheCaptain Ootsubo]]:''' I guess it's fine since the coach asked me to forgive three of your whims everyday.
* ButtMonkey: While verbally smacking down Kagami, an okonomiyaki lands ''on his head''. He is visibly mortified.
* BystanderSyndrome: WordOfGod states Midorima acted like this during the Teikou arc. While he didn't have as many KickTheDog moments as his GOM teammates and his moral values never changed, he basically did nothing to stop the obvious DarkestHour going on during those days. [[http://krbstokka.tumblr.com/post/105423689737/q-it-seemed-to-me-that-midorima-was-the-only-guy Fujimaki compares him to a kid who stands by and watches while others are being bullied]], though he does note that no one was good during the Teikou arc.
* {{Catchphrase}}:
** "Since I have my daily lucky item, I cannot possibly lose."
** "Man proposes, God disposes."
** Kise remarks that he has a funny accent, as he ends many of his sentences with the phrase "Nanodayo". A close English counterpart could be "As it should be perfectly obvious."
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Despite being [[TheComicallySerious comically serious]] and [[TallDarkAndSnarky snarky]], Midorima is very... eccentric, to say the least. He religiously listens to his daily horoscope and carries around every lucky item of the day, no matter how ridiculous. Case in point: one of the daily lucky items is a frog hand-puppet. ...With his back turned to Kise, he ''wears'' the hand-puppet, and while the frog puppet 'dances', he continues his conversation in his normal, serious tone (despite talking about zodiac signs, of all things).
* TheComicallySerious: He's always completely and utterly serious, especially when he's doing something that other people find ridiculous.
* CrypticConversation: Diverts conversation topics and rarely gives direct answers.
--> '''Kise:''' Akashi? Who's that?
--> '''Midorima:''' You'll know in due time.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow:
* {{Determinator}}: After [[spoiler:losing to Serin]], Midorima's attitude adjustment includes a massive boost in determination to win. In their rematch, he manages to surpass his shooting limit, continuously throwing high-arcing threes throughout the entire game, and playing such a hard defense that he manages to block both [[spoiler:Kiyoshi]]'s attempt to dunk and win, and [[spoiler:Kagami]]'s attempt at a buzzer-beater. And that doesn't even count the [[spoiler:Shuutoku vs. Rakuzan semi-final]], wherein he hurls himself up from where he'd fallen to the ground, into the air, and ''completely above'' [[spoiler:Akashi]]'s jump to block his attempt at a layup. [[spoiler:It doesn't work directly, but it forces him to pass, giving Otsubo time to block Nebuya's attempt at a dunk.]] His voice actor's recitation and his SayMyName moment shortly following really sell the moment in the anime.
---> '''Midorima:''' "More! Don't give up! There is no shame in falling! The only shame... ''is in not getting up!''"
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Takao. [[{{Tsundere}} He won't admit it, though.]]
* ImprobableAimingSkills:
** His shots always go in. And they have a ridiculously high arc, which takes a lot of calculation.
** Brings this trope to an insane extreme with his ability to hit ''objects in motion''—while in middle school, he shot a box of popsicle sticks at a purse-snatcher who was ''riding away on a scooter''.
* InsufferableGenius: Has unbelievable long-distance shooting skills, in the eyes of his past and current teammates, marginally compensate for his rather grating personality.
* LethalChef: WordOfGod states that Midorima is terrible at cooking.
* LikesOlderWomen: [[AllThereInTheManual The character bible]] mentions this.
* LongRangeFighter: His speciality is long range three-point shooting.
* ManlyTears: [[spoiler:After Shuutoku loses to Rakuzan.]]
* ObliviousToLove: Not a case in which he is the recipient, but he is completely unaware of Momoi's completely obvious crush on Kuroko until Kise informs him.
--> '''Kise:''' What? You didn't know? It was obvious! She was all over him every day! You'd have to be a monkey to see them and not realize!
* OnlySaneMan: In spite of his own quirks, he sometimes plays this role in the Generation of Miracles group.
* PaperThinDisguise: Part of his {{Tsundere}} schtick. He shows up to watch his friends' games while donning a pair of sunglasses. Each time he is hilariously under the impression that his disguise works, so when people recognize him, he is genuinely surprised.
* PersonalityBloodTypes: A firm believer in blood type personalities. Claims that he, a blood type B, does not get along with Kuroko, a blood type A.
* TheSouthpaw: He shoots with his left hand.
* StoicSpectacles: Except for his [[CloudCuckooLander quirks]], he's the typical "smart and stoic guy with glasses".
* TallDarkAndSnarky: He's ''very'' snarky, especially [[{{Tsundere}} towards people he likes]].
* {{Tsundere}}: Takao even says as much.

* TheAce: He was considered the Ace of the Generation of Miracles, making him the Ace of Aces.
* AffectionateNickname: Momoi calls him "Dai-chan".
** Not so affectionately: [[JustForPun Ahomine]].
* AmbiguouslyBrown: His skin is noticeably darker than other characters'.
* BrilliantButLazy: {{Subverted}}. At the beginning he prefers to sleep on the rooftop than go to basketball practice and often shows up for matches at the halfway mark... if he bothers to show up at all. However, he was originally passionate about basketball and worked hard at it because he loved it. But as he got better and better, his opponents starting giving up more and more easily. Eventually, he gave up on being serious about basketball, because there was no one who could equal him at it.
* BrokenAce: He started liking basketball less and less as his talent growed to the point that nobody could oppose him. At the beginning of the story he just goes through the motion, hoping he'll find a WorthyOpponent that can make him enjoy the sport again.
* CatchPhrase: "The only one who can win against me ... is me!"
* TheComicallySerious: He may seem like a dreaded guy, but even he has his share of awkward moments.
* CovertPervert: Not an outright lech, but in the [[AllThereInTheManual Character Bible]], he lists his type of woman as 'big-breasted', and his hobby is 'looking at gravure idols'.

* HeterosexualLifePartners:
** During his Teikou years, he was Kuroko's original "light" and they were very close even outside the court.
** He also became this with Kise. [[spoiler: It was noted that during the Touo vs Kaijou match, Aomine didn't go all out against Kise because he seems to still have a soft spot for him and during Winter Cup, he punches and knocks out Haizaki in order to protect Kise.]]
* HotGuysAreBastards: He's pretty good looking and ''extremely'' good at what he does, but he's also an InsufferableGenius and A JerkJock.

* MeaningfulName: His surname literally means "Blue Peak". The "blue" part follows the ColourfulThemeNaming of Teikou, when the "peak" part is his status as he's TheAce even back in Teikou.

* TheAce: He and Himuro are considered Yousen's two aces.
* BerserkButton: The opposition [[{{Determinator}} not giving up]] basketball despite not being good at it, or just implying that basketball is fun. Also, trying to take food away from him is a sure way to piss him off.
* BigEater: He's almost always seen with some sort of snack in hand. And it's shown when eating regular food that his portions are huge, though it makes sense for an athlete of his size.
* TheBigGuy: He's the center of the Generation of Miracles.
* BrilliantButLazy:
** {{Subverted}}. He finds basketball boring, but still trains very hard because he hates losing more than he hates practicing.
** PlayedStraight during the flashbacks: when the Generation of Miracles players' talents awakened, he was the first to propose they could just stop training and win anyway.
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: His dunk ''bent the basketball hoop in two''. The match even had to be posponed to fix the damage!
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: He usually thinks more about the snacks he's eating than about what he's doing while eating them.
* CreepyShadowedUndereyes: Which are really emphasized when he gets annoyed.

* EleventhHourSuperpower: [[spoiler:He actually enters the Zone in the last few seconds of the Seirin vs. Yousen match. It was still too late though.]]

And scored 6th from top in his grade by ''barely reading Fukui's last year exam once''.
* TheGiant: He's noticeably taller than anyone else.
* HardWorkHardlyWorks: He's firm believer of this, and actively tries to break the will of whoever thinks otherwise.
* SheCleansUpNicely: Normally looks rather dishevelled, so it's quite a difference when he ties his hair back into a short ponytail.
* IAmNotLeftHanded: Prefers to lounge about in defense where he's pretty good, but he is a monster when he decides to go offensive - his scoring record is ''100 points'' in a single match.
* LightningBruiser: With empashis on the "bruiser" part, as his height and strenght are his best weapons. He's still way faster than you would expect.
* ManChild: When he's not on court. Even [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] by Kuroko, who says that “when Murasakibara’s not playing basketball, he’s basically a kid with a screw loose”.
* ManlyTears: [[spoiler:After losing to Seirin.]]
* TheNicknamer: Shortens characters' names and adds "-chin" to the end of them. (e.g. Kuro-chin, Aka-chin, etc.)
* PurpleIsPowerful
* SweetTooth: People often bribe him with sweets when he doesn't want to do something.
* VictoryIsBoring: Due to his height advantage and talent, and his BrilliantButLazy side, he normally thinks this way unless he's pushed over the edge and his actual will to win is invoked.
* WholesomeCrossdresser: Invoked this trope in Replace novel, [[http://40.media.tumblr.com/aa9782ee1f2065c4275547fa9c239025/tumblr_my5fkh4TRm1qgc68to2_500.jpg where he played a princess with a]] PimpedOutDress for his class in school festival. Also, the sentence he said to show his acting (which he purposefully raised his pitch to say so), and a pose to imply he's playing a tyrannical princess , seems to be a ShoutOut to Marie Antoinette.
-->Murasakibara: If there is no rice, then go eat pastries!!
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: His signature color is purple.

steal.



* TheAce: For Rakuzan High. Also, he states he has never lost at anything in his entire life.
* AllOrNothing: How he normally thinks when it comes to being the best, especially with his CrazyPeoplePlayChess example seen below. [[spoiler:And regarding his split personality, his other personality manifested due to the desire to achieve pure excellence out of pressure throughout his life via his original personality. His near-loss with Murasakibara during their Teikou days was what caused him to snap and end up this way even more than ever. The CantCatchUp example seen below also ties into this]].
* AwesomenessByAnalysis: His Emperor Eye lets him "see" what his opponents will do by instantly analyzing their small subconscious movements.
* AxCrazy: The first time he meets Kagami, he ''attacks him with scissors''. He later states he knew Kagami would have been able to dodge, but he still left a cut on Kagami's face.
* BadassArmFold: His default pose in official art, usually with his jacket over his shoulders. Also does it in-universe, like right before the match against Shutoku.
* BadassBoast:
--> "I am absolute. I can see the entirety of the future. It is but a simple matter to change it."
* [[spoiler:BrokenStreak]]: [[spoiler:Eventually happens to him during his game against Seirin, where Kuroko and Kagami break through his Emperor's Eye and cause him to mentally break before Rakuzan's time out]].
* [[spoiler:CantCatchUp]]: [[spoiler:Turns out the reason for his split personality taking over was due to him realizing that the other Generation of Miracles were developing their talents and blooming into notable prodigies. This caused Akashi to question himself about his right to still be with them, feeling as though he was getting left behind. All it took was one game with Murasakibara to make him ponder about the meaning of defeat for the first time, and give him that push in snapping]].
* TheCaptain: He managed to become the captain of Teikou's club during his second year, and he's the captain at Rakuzan during his ''first year''. And none of the older and more experienced players seem to mind.
* TheChessmaster: Naturally. Also, while we mainly see him playing shougi when he's not playing basketball, [[AllThereInTheManual he's also mentioned to play chess]].
* CombatClairvoyance: This is his special talent.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow:
** Partially subverted. While his hair and [[RedEyesTakeWarning right eye]] are red, [[MismatchedEyes his left is yellow-orange]].
** Played completely straight back in middle school, when both his eyes were red. Until, of course, his power awakened. [[spoiler:His original personality, who always plays this straight, comes back in the end, though.]]
* CrazyPeoplePlayChess: [[AllThereInTheManual The character book]] mentions that he also plays chess, though in-series we only see shougi. And he ''definitely'' is not the sanest person around, especially after he declares [[spoiler:that he would gouge out both his eyes if Rakuzan lost to Shuutoku.]]
* DeathGlare: Is so good at this that his own teammates immediately become submissive at the very sight of one of Akashi's glares.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: He tries to stab Kagami with a pair of scissors for interrupting him.
* EvilRedhead: Being a sport manga he can't be truly evil, but he's ''very'' arrogant and ruthless.
* ExpectingSomeoneTaller: He is 173 cm which makes him the second shortest GOM member after Kuroko. When Furihata meets him, he is surprised that they're about the same height.
* TheFaceless: He's always shown from the back or the neck down. Even when he's face-to-face with the main characters, he has a FaceFramedInShadow. [[spoiler: His face is finally revealed at the end of chapter 113.]]
* FirstNameBasis: After [[spoiler:the other side of his SplitPersonality took over permanently]], he started calling his teammates at Teikou with their first names. They kept calling him by his last name, though. [[spoiler:His true self as an inverse foil uses LastNameBasis]].
* HellishPupils: His Emperor Eyes could easily be mistaken for the eyes of a demon.
* HeroKiller: Well, not actually kill them but dominating and completely crushing their morale.
** After he was [[spoiler:insulted by Murasakibara during practice, he awakened his Emperor Eye and scored 5 straight baskets to win the game leading to Murasakibara to leave the gym in rage]].
** In his last game in Teiko, [[spoiler:he orchestrated a plan to humiliate and demoralize Ogiwara and his teammates. This also led to Ogiwara quitting basketball]].
** He single-handedly dominated [[spoiler: the entire Shutoku team, most notably Midorima. He made every player who marked him to fall down and let him score. Shutoku's defeat made Midorima and Takao shed some ManlyTears]].
** During the Winter Cup finals, [[spoiler: everytime Kagami marks him, he either gets left behind or falls down. After entering the Zone, he made Izuki and Hyuga kneel before him and also blocked Teppei's dunk. In the end, Seirin still managed to win because of Kagami and his Lancer Kuroko which helped him to unleash the true power of the Zone]].
* IAmNotLeftHanded:
** Takao is suitably horrified to realize [[spoiler:Akashi's been moving imperceptibly slower than he's actually capable of for the entire first half of the Rakuzan-Shuutoku match, simply to fool Takao's Hawk Eye.]]
** At the end of his match with Seirin, [[spoiler:his original personality returns and he develops his ''second'' special talent]].
* ImportantHaircut: In his first appearance, and by his own hand no less. At first, it serves to illustrate just how absolute Akashi is willing to be, [[spoiler: although after Teikou arc it could also show just how different Akashi had become.]]
* JapanesePronouns: Akashi's usage is especially worth noting: [[spoiler:in the first years of Teikou, before "blooming" he used ''ore'', as most other middle school boys do. After his blooming and the subsequent emergence of his SplitPersonality, he switches to ''boku''.]]
%% * KnightTemplar
%% * LargeAndInCharge: Subverted. Other than Kuroko, he's the shortest member of the GOM.
* TheLeader: A levelheaded mastermind. He somehow shows traces of the charismatic type, such as when he shoots in his own basket to shock his teammates out of their rut.
* MeaningfulName: Most characters have {{meaningful name}}s because of theme naming but Akashi takes the cake. His name emphasizes his absolute rule and control of the situation and people surrounding him. His family name uses the kanji '司', denoting ruler, and his first name uses the kanji '征' meaning conquer. '十郎' means 10 men, which is the total number of basketball players on the court. His full name basically means 'Red Ruler, Conqueror of Ten Men'.
* NoSenseOfHumor: According to [[AllThereInTheManual trivia]].
* PunctuatedForEmphasis: [[spoiler:When he first uses FirstNameBasis on Kuroko.]]
* RedHeadedHero: While in Teikou.
* TheReveal: [[spoiler:His face in chapter 113.]]
* SmartPeoplePlayChess: With shougi onscreen, but he's mentioned to play chess too. Might also be [[CrazyPeoplePlayChess Crazy People Play Shougi]].
%% * SmugSuper
* SplitPersonality: [[spoiler:Midorima suspected Akashi of having this. Akashi himself admits to Kuroko that he has this.]]
* SplitPersonalityTakeover: [[spoiler:Happened to him in the past during a game against Murasakibara where the possibility of losing was presented to him, causing him to snap. But it happens again in a long time during the last game when his original personality gets back at the wheel.]]
* SuperpowerLottery: His Emperor Eye is generally regarded to be the most game-breaking ability of the GOM. [[spoiler:And if that wasn't enough, Midorima deduces that Akashi's original personality also has its own awakened ability, making Akashi the only member of the GOM to have ''two'' abilities.]]
* TheSocialDarwinist: Shows shades of this, mostly because of his education as heir of a noble house.
* TheStoic: [[DownplayedTrope To some extent]], less so during his Teikou years. In high school this trace is more noticeable: aside from a few grins (usually triggered by an opponent challenging him) and some looks of mild surprise, Akashi rarely changes expression in-court.
* SuperReflexes: [[spoiler: Thanks to his Emperor Eye and his intellect, he could single-handedly predict and destroy Shuutoku's team plays.]]
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: The side of him that isn't clearly crazy, anyway.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: [[spoiler:The [[SplitPersonality personality]] that showed traces of itself before he awakened his Emperor Eye and fully took over him after that, is noticeably crazier than the personality it took over.]]

* BerserkButton: The opposition [[{{Determinator}} not giving up]] basketball despite not being good at it, or just implying that basketball is fun.
* BigEater: He's almost always seen with some sort of snack in hand.

fun. Also, trying to take food away from him is a sure way to piss him off.
* BigEater: He's almost always seen with some sort of snack in hand. And it's shown when eating regular food that his portions are huge, though it makes sense for an athlete of his size.
