* AntiHero: Type III or Type IV

to:

* AntiHero: Type III or Type IVIV. He's pretty much universally recognized as the strongest Needless and the one who will bring humanity to salvation, but he abuses his powers and the perks they give him for all they're worth and is generally a brutish asshole.



* {{Bishonen}}: Was ''definitely'' this when he was younger. Nowadays he tends to look much more brutal, though he still occasionally shows signs of it when his sunglasses are off.



* HeroicComedicSociopath: Has very little empathy for others and is incredibly violent and self centered, though he tends to clean up his act quite a bit when the situation gets more serious.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Eve comes up to only about half of his torso.



* {{Jerkass}}: Exclusively refers to his allies as minions, sexually harasses the female ones and treats the male ones like garbage.



* MegaManning: His Needless Ability

to:

* MegaManning: His Needless AbilityAbility allows him to copy the abilities of other Needless after observing them once. While he perfectly replicates them, certain abilities, like Eve's shapeshifting, are too taxing on his body for him to pull off as effectively as the original user.
* MrFanservice: He's good looking and has a ridiculously chiseled physique, which he shows off in glorious detail in the first opening sequence.
* NonPOVProtagonist: Indisputably the main character of the series, though the story is told from Cruz's perspective. As a result, we almost never get to hear his thoughts or learn the reasoning behind his actions and he overall remains a pretty big enigma.



* {{Tsundere}}: A type A towards Eve, Cruz, and his other allies to a lesser extent.



* {{Deuteragonist}}: The most important character in the series after Blade.
* TheDitz: She's horrible with names, falls for obvious traps and can't keep up with exposition at all.



* MoralityPet: Pretty much the only person Blade cares about besides himself. Whenever her life is in danger, Blade is at his most heroic.



* OnlySaneMan: Up until the Eve's Story Arc, where [[spoiler: Saten]] and he pass this back and forth.



* OnlySaneMan: Up until the Eve's Story Arc, where [[spoiler: Saten]] and he pass this back and forth.


Added DiffLines:

* SupportingProtagonist: Despite being the central viewpoint character, the series is really about Blade and Eve.
* {{Tritagonist}}: Despite being the viewpoint character, his plotline is clearly secondary to Blade and Eve's.


Added DiffLines:

* TheOneGuy: [[spoiler: At the end of the series, Gido and Saten are both dead and Blade and Cruz have both undergone gender bending, making him the only male on the main team.]]


Added DiffLines:

* MrExposition: More or less her main role.


Added DiffLines:

* AntiHero: Type IV. She's not too bad of a person, but she's completely selfish and greedy and is willing to do whatever it takes to make a quick buck.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Bishonen}}: Noticeably leaner and softer-featured than Blade, though he's still incredibly tall and muscular.


Added DiffLines:

* EvilCounterpart: Pretty clearly set up as Blade's.


Added DiffLines:

* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: Switches sides constantly later on in the series, though ultimately his only allegiance is to himself.

Added DiffLines:

* MagnetismManipulation: [[CuteandPsycho Solva]] has Magnetism as her power, which works likes the ''VideoGame/HalfLife2'' Gravity Gun, except it allows her attract/repel ''anything'' since it's specifically [[HandWave the power]] to create a "[[HollywoodMagnetism unique magnetic field]]".
