to:

%%* WidowWoman* WidowWoman: One of the main issues keeping Kyoko from acknowledging her feelings for Godai is the fact that she's still mourning her late husband.

* [[NiceGuy Nice Girl]]: Linked to the trope above, she's also one of the nicest. Her only real flaw is how oblivious she can be regarding Godai's true romantic feelings.
* PowerHair: Subverted. She ''does'' have the hairstyle but she is no leader.
** Even stranger for fans familiar with Tominaga's other work, you half expect her to give up Godai for her [[Anime/DominionTankPolice tank]], or her [[Anime/{{Patlabor}} Police Robot]].

* FriendToAllChildren: He's shown relatively early on to be good with children when Ikuko shows up (though at first he is only nice to her to learn more about Kyoko). The only real exception is Kentaro, which is a more familiar sight in {{Rumiko Takahashi}}'s works, but Godai occasionally has friendly moments with him too. [[spoiler:He goes on to work part-time at a preschool, and eventually becomes a preschool teacher by the end of the series.]]

* {{Expy}}: Rumiko Takahashi's Rumic World manga ''Dust Spurt'' has a secret agent character named Mr. Sekhoi who looks ''exactly'' like Yotsuya. This is the source of some fan speculation that they are the same person.

* HookerWithAHeartOfGold: A variation. She isn't a hooker but late-night barmaid which is regarded as somewhat similar in Japan (even though sex isn't necessarily involved). As for the heart of gold, it shows up later in the series when she [[spoiler: decides to step in and trigger Kyoko's jealousy and force her to be more honest with herself with regards to Godai]].
