* 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.

* 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]].

* 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]].

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: While she is a lot less sympathetic than the likes of Kozue and is often seen as a temperamental brat who needs to learn that she can't always get what she wants. However Ibuki does occasionally get some sympathetic moments and even occasionally does try to help Godai out.

* FakeBrit: Yotsuya's accent in the Viz English dubs. To be fair, his first dub actor, Gerard Plunket is an Irish born Canadian. Ron Halder, his replacement post episode 36, however, is American but does a very seamless transition from his predecessor.
