* NonstandardCharacterDesign: Subtle, but she's the only character whose eyes are drawn without the white part on it. It makes her stand out.

* WickedStepmother: She acts in this fashion, [[spoiler:cavorting with Akio]] and caring very little about her ill husband's health or Kanae's well-being.

* BroughtDownToNormal: [[spoiler:It's implied that when Anthy took the swords of hatred for him she ended up sealing away all of Akio's former power as Prince Dios into herself and that all of the bizarre magic he seemingly is capable of is actually a combination of using Anthy's power and illusions from the Planetarium. After Anthy leaves Akio forever it's implied that he returns to being a normal human a FateWorseThanDeath for an egotist like him.]]

* AmbiguouslyBrown: He has dark skin and a bindi despite having a fully Japanese name. [[spoiler:It turns out that the real Mamiya had a more Japanese skin tone; the only reason he appears AmbiguouslyBrown is because Anthy is impersonating him.]]

* TheOjou: What she ''tries'' to be, anyway. She's certainly rich and she tries to pass herself off as refined, but when it comes down to it she's more of a [[RitchBitch Ritch]] AlphaBitch.

** Miki is one of the few genuinely good-natured characters, and is certainly the Student Councilor least inclined to use others as punching bags for his own issues. This being ''Utena'', he [[LovingAShadow does]] [[MadonnaWhoreComplex have]] [[MasochismTango flaws]], but he ''is'' one of the few characters that never slaps [[DesignatedVictim Anthy]].

* CryingWolf: Tries to warn Utena about Akio and Anthy [[spoiler:after accidentally learning ''exactly'' what their relationship is like]], but because no one trusts Nanami it comes to no avail.

* CryingWolf: Tries to warn Utena about Akio and Anthy [[spoiler:after accidentally learning ''exactly'' what their relationship is like]], but because no one trusts Nanami it comes to no avail. Somewhat different for this trope is that the distrust doesn't become because the others believe she's ''lying'', but because they believe she's ''deluded'', as past experiences show how easily duped and overemotionally paranoid Nanami can be.

Added DiffLines:

* BrokenPedestal: [[spoiler:Akio is actually the Prince whom Utena meet when she was a girl and the one who saved her from her DespairEventHorizon. The revelation of how much of a ManipulativeBastard he is and his abuse of Anthy shatter any and all admiration that Utena had for him.]]
* BroughtDownToNormal: [[spoiler:It's implied that when Anthy took the swords of hatred for him she ended up sealing away all of Akio's former power as Prince Dios into herself and that all of the bizarre magic he seemingly is capable of is actually a combination of using Anthy's power and illusions from the Planetarium. After Anthy leaves Akio forever it's implied that he returns to being a normal human a FateWorseThanDeath for an egotist like him.]]


Added DiffLines:

* EvilPlan: [[spoiler:As End of the World Akio manipulates various teenagers to do battle in his duels in order to find someone of true nobility and love. When he finds said person he intends to use their sword of love and nobility to shatter the Rose Gate in order to regain his lost power as Prince Dios and revolutionise the world.]]


Added DiffLines:

* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler:Quite a few times during his duel with Utena, first when she rejects his ideals about her status as a princess and reaffirms that she will save Anthy. Then when Utena is capable of opening the Rose Gate that he couldn't unlock and the swords of hatred stop impaling Anthy causing him to have a FreakOut. Finally after Anthy leaves him forever and all he can do is shout for her to return.]]
