* [[spoiler:MouthOfSauron: His ideological talks with Gotō show a glimpse of Tsuge's intentions regarding the terrorist attacks, defining that Tsuge wants to show how phony is the sense of security the Japanese have and how precarious it actually is. His eagerness to express his pessimistic point of view regarding law enforcement and protection of the public is one of the things that tips off Gotō about his involvement in Tsuge's terrorist plots.]]

* FaceHeelTurn: He went to Cambodia as a ''peacekeeper''. His unit finds itself showered with bullets and he repeatedly asks permission to shoot back, but [[ObstructiveBureaucrat he's given the OK too late]] and his unit gets slaughtered. So no, peace didn't work out for him. He then dedicates himself to lift his country's ideological blindfold with terrorism by showing them just how foolish they've become and unsafe they actually are.

* TheConWithinACon: In the first movie, he suspected Hoba may have tampered with SHI's new HOS system, so he cons Asuma into investigating it, to make certain. Except [[spoiler: Gotō had already confirmed it, through Shige. The point of conning Asuma was to get him suspended, so he'd be free to look into the Ark Project and determine whether it factored into Hoba's plans]]. It works, though Asuma is justifiably upset over being used.

* BigGood: The top brass may not care for him, but they still defer to him during an impending crisis. So does the JSDF, Detective Matsui, and his fellow captain, Shinobu, all of whom have learned to rely on Gotō's decision making ability, and with good reason. He's a genius level tactician, having studied military strategy at the academy. He's also keenly observant and tends to pick up on things before others do, and notices details others might overlook. [[MegaCorp Shaft Enterprises]] and his old mentor, [[spoiler: Kai]], know this better than anyone.
* TheConWithinACon: In the first movie, he makes Shinohara investigate his father's company regarding the new Labor programming that might be faulty and causing Labors to go berserk. [[spoiler:Gotō already knows that this is the case and has already confirmed it, but he needs Shinohara to go derelict enough from his duties to be able to rat him and earn him a suspension long enough for Shinohara to investigate the problem more deeply and run the numbers]]. Shinohara is not very happy about this, but it does work.

* ChekhovsGunman: A literal one in the manga. [[spoiler:He was one of the anti-riot mobile unit officers who tried to break ranks in order to board one of the new Ingram Labors. He's later seen with Asuma when a police van drops them off at [=SV2=] Headquarters.]]

** Kanuka's combat skills, in and out of her labor are awe inspiring. The woman took down a courtyard of Yakuza, with a wooden sword while clad in a kimono. And, in the first film, Gotō specifically called her in to assist SV2 with the raid on the Ark.

* NotSoAboveItAll: She might like to hammer on the SV2, but she's more than willing to help them if they ask her. She even prioritizes fishing out the arms dealers over getting footage from the Labor battle going on in front of them.

* {{Foil}}: To Ōtah, due to their conflicting personalities. Asuma alternates between trying to talk sense into him and either griping, or snarking, whenever Ota's trigger-happy tendencies creates problems for their division.

* HotBlooded: Though not as off-the-rails as OŌtah, Shinohara can be extremely careless when he's pissed. This gets him in hot water in the first movie, as he goes ballistic against the [=SVU=]'s commander when he's suspended for going [=AWOL=].

* RespectedByTheRespected: In a joint mission, Gomioka recognizes why Division 2 is better garrisoned than 1, as they are willing to keep fighting even when their Labors are falling to pieces (as OŌtah shows him).
