Added DiffLines:

* TheDreaded: Kotarou's reaction when he first runs into it during the Terra route. His hiding is completely understandable due to the dragon's immense size, and that it kills Mikuni and his team, who were the top ranking students in their class, while Kotarou finished near the bottom.


Added DiffLines:

* HeroKiller: Towards Guardian members at least, due to the dragon being affiliated with Gaia. This is certainly how Kotarou first viewed it when he was starting out in Guardian.

!!Shizuru Nakatsu
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Shizuru_Nakatsu_2593.jpg]]
-> Voiced by: Keiko Suzuki

A first-year student and acquaintance of Kotarou. As a self-proclaimed "moral guard", she carries around a whistle to call out students on rules violations. While she is very serious and normally quiet, she also enjoys playing along with Kotarou's pranks. In fact, due to a rather obvious crush, she generally supports Kotarou in whatever he does. She wears an eyepatch, but at the start of the story Kotarou doesn't know why.

* BadassAdorable: Shizuru is probably
the Earth.strongest character in the main cast at the start of the story. Kotarou can make himself tougher than her, though he normally doesn't, and under certain conditions Lucia can beat her.
* CatSmile: Frequently, usually whenever enjoying her [[TrademarkFavoriteFood saury]].
* CombatMedic: [[spoiler:Her main ability can create different kinds of medicine; she is also one of the strongest fighters of the group.]]
* ComicallySerious: She plays along with Kotarou's jokes as much as Kotori, but unlike her she always looks completely serious.
* CuteMute: She's generally very quiet, leaving Kotarou to interpret the facial expressions she makes for a large amount of their conversations. [[spoiler:She later loses her voice when she formed a contract with Kotarou. Everyone believed [[TheQuietOne she was just acting normally]] and thought it was adorable.]]
* DodgeTheBullet: [[spoiler:She can drug herself into moving and reacting so quickly that a hallway filled with bullets is a cakewalk to move through unscathed.]]
* ExtremeOmnivore: One of the lighter examples. She'll eat plants she finds in the forest or insects that she runs across. Well, only probably for the latter because Kotarou dares not turn around to confirm it. [[spoiler:The things she was eating were perfectly safe to eat, but even if they weren't Shizuru is immune to poison and disease.]]
* EyeScream: Subverted. Beneath the bandage is a perfectly functional eye, it just happens to be a different color and attracts unwanted attention. [[spoiler:But when she was young? Yeah. Took some debris to the face but since she has a healing factor it wasn't a big deal.]]
* FreakinessShame: Shizuru wears an eyepatch not because her eye is damaged, but because she has heterochromia. Kotarou tells her that her golden eye is pretty.
* GamerChick: Downplayed. She doesn't play often anymore, but due to playing a lot as a child, she is easily able to defeat Kotarou in fighting games.
* GirlishPigtails: Kotarou seems to identify her by her hair a lot of the time. He considers the twintails to be a rare spawn monster at one point.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Has blonde hair, and is one of the nicest characters in the series.

* HealingHands: [[spoiler:She can heal people directly as well as produce medicine inside her body.]]
* HumbleHero: Despite earning a lot of money working as a Guardian, she refuses to spend the money on luxuries and instead live in a simplistic tiny house. [[spoiler: Apparently, she's saving up money to buy her parents a dream home once they finally remember her.]]
* JackBauerInterrogationTechnique: Threatens Brenda with this.
* KnifeNut: In combat, she dual-wields knives.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: [[spoiler:Shizuru has the power to control memories to an extent.]]
* LiteralMinded: Shizuru gets some rather odd imagine spots at times due to not getting a lot of metaphorical speech.
* MarkOfTheSupernatural: [[spoiler:Her eye is golden because she regrew it improperly after it was destroyed by debris. This was one of the first really noticeable uses of her superhuman power to heal.]]
* NiceGirl: She's kind, polite, and adorable personality, as evident with her interactions with Kotarou.
* NonverbalMiscommunication: Played with. Kotarou likes attaching random meanings to Shizuru’s expressions when she’s being quiet and in truth even he thinks they’re complete nonsense, but it turns out he’s actually frequently right.
* PowerIncontinence: When she was little, her control over her ability was not as refined and she accidentally [[spoiler:wiped herself from the memory of her parents.]]
* PuppyDogEyes: Shizuru is quite the master of beseeching looks.
* TheQuietOne: Shizuru isn’t silent, but a large amount of her communication is just Kotarou reading her expressions.
* ReadingLips: She knows how to read lips [[spoiler:which helped when she lost her hearing.]]
* SecretlyWealthy: Shizuru would be a millionaire if you converted yen to dollars, but lives in a tiny, empty building and eats extremely cheap food. [[spoiler: Apparently, she is saving up money to buy her parents their dream home after accidentally wiping out their memories, showing that she still cares about her parents.]]
* {{Sleepyhead}}: She tends to sleep in very late if she can and can often be found dozing in the courtyard at school when she has the time. It's indicated that this may be partially a result of her abilities.
* TokenMiniMoe: Kotarou thinks she could pass for a sixth grader with the right clothes. She's very short and young looking and is mildly irritated over it.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Saury. It reminds her of her family, though she always liked it.



* ACupAngst: [[OutOfCharacterMoment In the Oppai Ending]], she reveals that she has chest size issues.
* ApocalypseMaiden: The Key is here to observe mankind and see if they the world should be [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt saved.]]
* BreakingTheFourthWall: In the Oppai Ending, she laments how few lines she has compared to the other heroines.
* CuteMute: In several routes, she's barely capable of speech. She's capable of learning to speak any human language very quickly, but is frequently kept from learning anything since being in the outside world puts her in danger of being discovered.
* DefrostingIceQueen: She starts showing more emotions when she interacts more with Kotarou.
* ElegantGothicLolita: She wears a black gothic lolita style dress.
* EmotionlessGirl: During most routes she is very inexpressive and inhuman, so she kind of creeps Kotarou out on the few occasions he sees her.
* EmptyEyes: In contrast to everyone else’s bright eyes, the Key’s eyes are always flat and non-reflective.
* GoodAllAlong: [[spoiler:She doesn't want to cause Salvation, but it's not something she can control. She's trying to find a perfect solution that allows humanity to survive but can't find one.]]

* HairDecorations: She wears a cross-shaped hair clip on both sides of her hair.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: She has long red ribbons attached to her wrists that act upon her will.
* InvisibleToNormals: The Key cannot be seen by most people. It’s not that she’s invisible, but people just sort of overlook her. She places a lot of faith in this ability [[spoiler:which is generally how she gets found: She doesn't take proper precautions to hide normally and just assumes that if no one can see her it's okay to leave plenty of evidence about where she is.]]
* LackOfEmpathy: She's born as a basically BlankSlate that is here to judge humanity and see if they can coexist properly with the Earth and at the beginning has no real intellect or emotion. After developing intellect, she still has nothing like human emotion or empathy. In some routes, she has no real humanity or emotion. In Terra [[spoiler:he learns that she really does want to save humanity, but she's brutally pragmatic and wishes to kill Akane even though she's not even capable of speech or telling anyone that she saw Kagari.]] Kotarou is appalled [[spoiler:though he agrees that she might be right.]]
* MacGuffinSuperPerson: She is the Key that two secret societies, Guardian and Gaia, are fighting to secure.
* MurderIsTheBestSolution: Her idea of problem solving in Moon seems to always involve 'kill the annoyance' and in Terra [[spoiler:she always urges Kotarou to hurry up and massacre Gaia and Guardian or to take over the world.]]
* MysticalWaif: She looks like a little girl and wanders around investigating the planet and humanity, but is in fact the Key that can trigger the apocalypse.
* MysticalWhiteHair: Her white hair isn't commented upon, but she's a clearly inhuman entity with great power and ability.
* OnlyOneName: She's only known as the Key or Kagari and the latter isn't quite her name either. She gets a last name in Harvest Festa, though.
* PerceptionFilter: Only a few humans can actually see her. Familiars are better at it, though. Everyone else just sort of tunes her out.
* PurpleEyes: She has deep lavender-coloured eyes, another sign of her inhuman nature.
* ReiAyanamiExpy: Silver hair with pale skin? Check. Mysterious and unsettling emotionless demeanor? Check. Inhuman entity with great power? Check. Shows more emotions thanks to the main character? Check.
* StarfishLanguage: In Moon route, she speaks in a highly advanced way that it appear as "■ ■ ■ ■ ■". Kotarou's head hurts just from hearing it. Kagari is also not really her name but implied to be a description of what she is, but she cannot state that any more clearly than the word 'Kagari.'
* ThirdPersonPerson: She uses the third person in Terra, the first route where she really begins to speak. It's not quite cute so much as viewing herself as something that fulfills a role rather than an individual.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: The first way Kotarou manages to get through to her in Moon is by sharing coffee with her. After her initial disinterest, she seems to grow pretty fond of it.
* UncannyValleyGirl: The Key in Kotori and Shizuru’s route is highly alien and doesn’t really feel like a human. [[spoiler:In Kotori’s route it can barely speak or do anything that Kotarou is capable of interpreting easily. In Shizuru’s it’s more talkative, but still incapable of interacting with him in a way he can appreciate.]]

!!Shizuru Nakatsu
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Shizuru_Nakatsu_2593.jpg]]
-> Voiced by: Keiko Suzuki

A first-year student
* ActionGirl: She has rather high physical strength and acquaintance doesn't hesitate to use it.
* BadPowersGoodPeople: [[spoiler:Lucia’s abilities are making concentrated death and destroying things. She’s a little heavy on the tsuntsun but otherwise a perfectly kind person.]]
* BigBadFriend: Lucia keeps trying to get Kotarou to drop the Asahi Haruka investigation because [[spoiler:she is Asahi Haruka. She hasn't done anything wrong, though.]]
* BlankWhiteEyes: Lucia gains blank white eyes on occasion whenever Kotarou does something particularly surprising.
* CerebusRetcon: Lucia's tolerance for spicy food is played for laughs. [[spoiler:In her route, you learn that she's actually incapable
of Kotarou. As a self-proclaimed "moral guard", she carries around a whistle to call out students on rules violations. While tasting spicy food ''because of the drugs she is taking to suppress the deadly poison in her body.'']]
* ClassRepresentative: Kotarou thinks of her as the classic uptight class rep that's obsessed with order and is convinced every school probably has their own Lucia in charge of a class.
* CollateralAngst: Rather than dwell on [[spoiler:the people accidentally killed]] Lucia gets the lions share of the sympathy points in that story [[spoiler:while Kishida Ryuugo and the nurse]] are largely forgotten. Later, [[spoiler:Lucia intentionally kills two hundred thousand people]] and again the story focuses on her depression.
* CordonBleughChef: She ''can'' cook, but when Kotori offers to swap items from their lunches Lucia declines because her meal was made more to look good than to taste good. Coupled with her extreme tolerance for spice it's questionable whether it was truly edible for anyone but her. [[spoiler:She has no sense of taste. She just has excellent control over how she perceives the world and if food looks good she can stimulate her brain into remembering how things tasted back when she did have a sense of taste. Thus, what she considers good food and what others consider good might
very serious and normally quiet, she also enjoys playing along with Kotarou's pranks. In fact, due to a rather well not overlap in the slightest.]]
* DemonicPossession: [[spoiler:Subverted. Lucia pretends that Haruka is speaking through her mouth, but it’s pretty
obvious crush, she generally supports that the two are the same person. It’s confirmed not much later.]]
* DontYouDarePityMe: She doesn't want
Kotarou in whatever to stay with her just because he does. pities [[spoiler:her cursed touch. She wears an eyepatch, but wants Kotarou to actually love her.]]
* FriendlessBackground: When she was young she never had any friends. She still only has one friend
at the start of the story story, Shizuru.
* FullNameUltimatum: Whenever she puts distance between herself and someone else she ends up referring to them by their full name, especially '''TENNOUJI KOTAROU!!'''
* HairIntakes: Her hairdo has two of what look like cat ears.
* HairTriggerTemper: A lot of her tsuntsun behavior is actually more a result of her being really easily angered rather than her necessarily covering up embarrassment or affection.
* HealingFactor: Not most of the time, but [[spoiler:in an area filled with the poison she makes she possesses a healing factor even stronger than Shizuru's.]]
* KatanasAreJustBetter: Despite the fact that a sword really isn't the most efficient of weapons, it's the weapon she favors. [[spoiler:She can't use guns, after all. Also, with her vibration powers her attacks are much more effective.]]
* MegatonPunch: Lucia is fond of decking
Kotarou when he does something that at least looks perverted. She eventually promises to stop mid route.
* MySisterIsOffLimits: She's not Shizuru's sister, but because of her overprotectiveness the rest of the club starts thinking of her as Shizuru's sister in law when Shizuru and Kotarou start getting closer.
* NeatFreak: She has a reputation as a neat freak thanks to the white gloves she always wears. It causes her some social problems because when she has to touch living things she begins calling everything filthy and absolutely refuses to do so. [[spoiler:She actually considers ''herself'' filthy: Touching a cat even through the gloves could be putting it in danger if it touches her wrist or anything.]]
* OnlyFriend: Shizuru is Lucia’s only close friend. [[spoiler:Only she can resist the toxins that Lucia continuously creates.]]
* OutDamnedSpot: She has a nightmare where she compulsively washes her hands because they keep oozing poison. When Kotarou sees her without gloves her hands are perfectly normal or even pretty. Still, given her neat freak thing, it's pretty easy to understand [[spoiler:but it is really true. You just can't see the poison.]]
* PoisonIsCorrosive: Anything receiving a sufficiently high level of poison will blacken and crumble within seconds.
* PoisonousPerson: Lucia has nightmares where her touch is so filthy and impure that it causes anything she touches to wither, rot and die. [[spoiler:Thanks to experiments designed to allow Lucia to survive in toxic environments, she herself releases a poison that kills all living beings that touch her. She can control it somewhat, but not turn it off entirely. And that’s with suppressants.]]
* PowerIncontinence: She tends to break complex things around her thanks to her [[spoiler:vibration ability. She also breaks people, animals, plants and bacteria since she's a poison factory.]]
* PsychicPowers: [[spoiler:Apart from her poisonous touch,]] Lucia has mild telekinetic abilities, though they're not very useful.
* SensoryOverload: An inadvertent example. [[spoiler:After she stops taking the suppressants that dull all her senses]] she perceives the world much more strongly than usual, causing her to feel overloaded, drained and slightly feverish. It cuts into her date with Kotarou [[spoiler:but not as much as when she poisons the town moments later, killing every leaving organism inside that lacks protection. It's implied that her holding in her poison may have been what was really responsible, making it a possible invocation and subversion.]]
* SuperHeroOrigin: Lucia
doesn't know why.seem to be a normal super power user like Shizuru or Kotarou. Rather, [[spoiler:her poisonous person abilities and vibration power are the result of an experiment performed on a large amount of orphans. She was the only survivor.]]
* SuperpowerMeltdown: [[spoiler:Lucia’s suppressants stop working in every route, after which she has to live inside bunkers until a new one can be developed. In her own route, her body is fiddled with so that she makes even more poison after this. This already makes her unsafe to be around for anyone but Kotarou or a few special individuals, but then she’s manipulated into setting them off. The entire town of Kazamatsuri is killed. Plants, animals and people. In theory, even the bacteria are dead.]]
* TouchOfDeath: In a nightmare that she has, things Lucia touches with her hands die. She’s worried that it happens for real, but it’s noted that it was just a string of bad luck that gave her classmates that impression. [[spoiler:Turns out she really does have it and can only really minimize the effects.]]
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Lucia has a reputation for loving spicy food and seems confused when people react with shock to her enjoyment of it. [[spoiler:She has no sense of taste.]]
* {{Tsundere}}: Kotori catches on pretty quickly to Lucia's attitude. It's partially intentional since she’s interested in Kotarou but [[spoiler:has only partial control over her abilities]], so she tries to keep him distant from her. Not that it’s entirely a pose, as she quickly makes clear.
* WalkingTechBane: [[spoiler:Lucia destroys anything like complex machinery quickly when she touches it, so for the most part she can’t normally use stuff like that without taking some form of suppressant. She can’t even reliably use a gun.]]
* WalkingWasteland: [[spoiler:As a result of Guardian's experiments, and the reason she wears gloves.]]
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Lucia's hair is dark purple.



* ACupAngst: Shizuru has a mild dissatisfaction about being so short and flat. Kotarou thinks she could pass for a sixth grader. Not that he'd say that.
* ActionGirl: Shizuru is a front line fighter.
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: When she was a lot younger, she left her golden eye uncovered and got bullied for it. Since then she keeps it covered.
* BadassAdorable: Shizuru is probably the strongest character in the main cast at the start of the story. Kotarou can make himself tougher than her, though he normally doesn't, and under certain conditions Lucia can beat her.
* CatSmile: Frequently, usually whenever enjoying her [[TrademarkFavoriteFood saury]].

of the story. Kotarou can make himself tougher than her, though he normally doesn't, Occult Research Club, and under certain conditions Lucia can beat her.
* CatSmile: Frequently, usually whenever enjoying her [[TrademarkFavoriteFood saury]].
* CombatMedic: [[spoiler:Her main ability can create different kinds of medicine; she is also one
the "mysterious witch" of the strongest fighters of the group.]]
* ComicallySerious: She plays along with Kotarou's jokes as much as Kotori, but unlike her she always looks completely serious.
* CuteMute: She's generally very quiet, leaving Kotarou to interpret the facial expressions she makes for a large amount of their conversations. [[spoiler:She later loses her voice when she formed a contract with Kotarou. Everyone believed [[TheQuietOne she was just acting normally]] and thought it was adorable.]]
* DodgeTheBullet: [[spoiler:She can drug herself into moving and reacting so quickly that a hallway filled with bullets is a cakewalk to move through unscathed.]]
* ExtremeOmnivore: One of the lighter examples. She'll eat plants she finds in the forest or insects that she runs across. Well, only probably for the latter because Kotarou dares not turn around to confirm it. [[spoiler:The things she was eating were perfectly safe to eat, but even if they weren't Shizuru is immune to poison and disease.]]
* EyeScream: Subverted. Beneath the bandage is a perfectly functional eye, it just happens to be a different color and attracts unwanted attention. [[spoiler:But when she was young? Yeah. Took some debris to the face but since she has a healing factor it wasn't a big deal.]]
* FreakinessShame: Shizuru wears an eyepatch not because her eye is damaged, but because she has heterochromia. Kotarou tells her that her golden eye is pretty.
* GamerChick: Downplayed. She doesn't play often anymore, but due to playing a lot as a child, she is easily able to defeat Kotarou in fighting games.
* GirlishPigtails: Kotarou seems to identify her by her hair a lot of the time. He considers the twintails to be a rare spawn monster at one point.

* HealingFactor: [[spoiler:Shizuru produces medicines and drugs in her body and can heal herself quite quickly. She can also heal others.]]
* HealingHands: [[spoiler:She can heal people directly as well as produce medicine inside her body.]]

* JackBauerInterrogationTechnique: Threatens Brenda with this.
* KnifeNut: In combat, she dual-wields knives.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: [[spoiler:Shizuru has the power to control memories to an extent.]]
* LiteralMinded: Shizuru gets some rather odd imagine spots at times due to not getting a lot of metaphorical speech.
* MarkOfTheSupernatural: [[spoiler:Her eye is golden because she regrew it improperly after it was destroyed by debris. This was one of the first really noticeable uses of her superhuman power to heal.]]
* NiceGirl: She's kind, polite, and adorable personality, as evident with her interactions with Kotarou.
* NonverbalMiscommunication: Played with. Kotarou likes attaching random meanings to Shizuru’s expressions when she’s being quiet and in truth even he thinks they’re complete nonsense, but it turns out he’s actually frequently right.
* PowerIncontinence: When she was little, her control over her ability was not as refined and she accidentally [[spoiler:wiped herself from the memory of her parents.]]
* PuppyDogEyes: Shizuru is quite the master of beseeching looks.
* TheQuietOne: Shizuru isn’t silent, but a large amount of her communication is just Kotarou reading her expressions.
* ReadingLips: She knows how to read lips [[spoiler:which helped when she lost her hearing.]]
* SecretlyWealthy: Shizuru would be a millionaire if you converted yen to dollars, but lives in a tiny, empty building and eats extremely cheap food. [[spoiler: Apparently, she is saving up money to buy her parents their dream home after accidentally wiping out their memories, showing that she still cares about her parents.]]
* {{Sleepyhead}}: She tends to sleep in very late if she can and can often be found dozing in the courtyard at school when she has the time. It's indicated that this may be partially a result of her abilities.
* TokenMiniMoe: Kotarou thinks she could pass for a sixth grader with the right clothes.
school. She's very short aloof from the group and young looking only interacts frequently with Kotarou himself and is mildly irritated over it.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Saury. It reminds her
to a lesser extent Chihaya and Sakuya. She's quite fond of her family, though teasing Kotarou. Like Chihaya, she always liked it.doesn't seem to have had any friends prior to the story beginning. Unlike Chihaya, she's still not very good at it during the story.

She's finds.]]

one of the more stereotypically violent tsunderes. In combination with her perceived neat freak attitude such as always wearing gloves leaders of Gaia and the direct subordinate of the real boss. Gaia has at least two major factions and Akane's is the one that wants to end the world, though she doesn't really have any seem thrilled about it. However, despite this, she persists. In Chihaya's route she apparently prevents the Song of Salvation, but then goes nuts when she sees all the bad memories of mankind and nearly ends the world herself. In both her own and Shizuru's route she succeeds.]]
* BlackmailIsSuchAnUglyWord: It's magic, honest!

* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: She has yellowish-white eyes and hair.

friends is something that's rather foreign to Akane. She seems slightly bemused that she actually cares about people like Kotarou.
* GamerChick: Almost never seen in the club room without her laptop and playing games.
* GoMadFromTheRevelation: [[spoiler:In Chihaya's route, Akane manages to capture Kotori and the Key. Right when she's deciding that she doesn't need to cause the end of the world anymore, the Key shows her the worst memories of mankind and she goes absolutely insane. She’s furious that the Key saw enough good that it decided not to wipe out humanity and decides to do it herself.]]
* {{Hikikomori}}: She hates going outside or interacting with new people.
* LazyBum: She hates having to go out and meet people.
* NotSoAboveItAll: Akane likes to act as the OnlySaneMan, but even
apart from Shizuru. her obvious eccentricities she’s really determined to disprove anything occult based due to the groping bet made at the beginning. The lengths she goes to for this are quite impressive. She has a reputation for a high tolerance also joins in on the antics occasionally despite her protests.
* {{Ojou}}: She was adopted by an old, influential woman with ties
to spicy foods.the Martel Corporation. Whenever Kotarou catches her by surprise, though, she's usually ruining whatever dignity and elegance she has. She's also fairly vulgar.
* OnlySaneWoman: Akane, despite calling herself a witch, is the only one with a firm grasp on reality. She's also the only one who seems to really notice what a bunch of weirdos have gathered in the club room. [[spoiler:It later turns out that her 'firm grasp on reality' thing was her covering up incidents that she actually knew to be true while exposing those that were genuinely fake.]]
* ReluctantPsycho: [[spoiler:She does not really seem to enjoy her job and faces it with sheer resignation. When she wins in Shizuru's route, she's depressed. She does not really want to become the Holy Woman either and when she inherits the job in her route she starts slipping quickly under the weight of the inherited grudge despite knowing and hating what she's doing.]]
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney: She abuses her wealth and influence to get credits even when not attending classes. She also gave her secretary a teaching position in school.

* BlankWhiteEyes: Lucia gains blank white eyes on occasion whenever Kotarou does something particularly surprising.
* CerebusRetcon: Lucia's tolerance for spicy food is played for laughs. [[spoiler:In her route, you learn that she's actually incapable of tasting spicy food ''because of the drugs she is taking to suppress the deadly poison in her body.'']]
* ClassRepresentative: Kotarou thinks of her as the classic uptight class rep that's obsessed with order and is convinced every school probably has their own Lucia in charge of a class.
* CollateralAngst: Rather than dwell on [[spoiler:the people accidentally killed]] Lucia gets the lions share of the sympathy points in that story [[spoiler:while Kishida Ryuugo and the nurse]] are largely forgotten. Later, [[spoiler:Lucia intentionally kills two hundred thousand people]] and again the story focuses on her depression.
* CordonBleughChef: She ''can'' cook, but when Kotori offers to swap items from their lunches Lucia declines because her meal was made more to look good than to taste good. Coupled with her extreme tolerance for spice it's questionable whether it was truly edible for anyone but her. [[spoiler:She has no sense of taste. She just has excellent control over how she perceives the world and if food looks good she can stimulate her brain into remembering how things tasted back when she did have a sense of taste. Thus, what she considers good food and what others consider good might very well not overlap in the slightest.]]

* FullNameUltimatum: Whenever she puts distance between herself and someone else she ends up referring to them by their full name, especially '''TENNOUJI KOTAROU!!'''
* HairIntakes: Her hairdo has two of what look like cat ears.
* HairTriggerTemper: A lot of her tsuntsun behavior is actually more a result of her being really easily angered rather than her necessarily covering up embarrassment or affection.
* HealingFactor: Not most of the time, but [[spoiler:in an area filled with the poison she makes she possesses a healing factor even stronger than Shizuru's.]]
* KatanasAreJustBetter: Despite the fact that a sword really isn't the most efficient of weapons, it's the weapon she favors. [[spoiler:She can't use guns, after all. Also, with her vibration powers her attacks are much more effective.]]
* MegatonPunch: Lucia is fond of decking Kotarou when he does something that at least looks perverted. She eventually promises to stop mid route.
* MySisterIsOffLimits: She's not Shizuru's sister, but because of her overprotectiveness the rest of the club starts thinking of her as Shizuru's sister in law when Shizuru and Kotarou start getting closer.
* NeatFreak: She has a reputation as a neat freak thanks to the white gloves she always wears. It causes her some social problems because when she has to touch living things she begins calling everything filthy and absolutely refuses to do so. [[spoiler:She actually considers ''herself'' filthy: Touching a cat even through the gloves could be putting it in danger if it touches her wrist or anything.]]
* OnlyFriend: Shizuru is Lucia’s only close friend. [[spoiler:Only she can resist the toxins that Lucia continuously creates.]]
* OutDamnedSpot: She has a nightmare where she compulsively washes her hands because they keep oozing poison. When Kotarou sees her without gloves her hands are perfectly normal or even pretty.

* PoisonIsCorrosive: Anything receiving a sufficiently high level of poison will blacken and crumble within seconds.
* PoisonousPerson: Lucia has nightmares where her touch is so filthy and impure that it causes anything she touches to wither, rot and die. [[spoiler:Thanks to experiments designed to allow Lucia to survive in toxic environments, she herself releases a poison that kills all living beings that touch her. She can control it somewhat, but not turn it off entirely. And that’s with suppressants.]]
* PowerIncontinence: She tends to break complex things around her thanks to her [[spoiler:vibration ability. She also breaks people, animals, plants and bacteria since she's a poison factory.]]
* PsychicPowers: [[spoiler:Apart from her poisonous touch,]] Lucia has mild telekinetic abilities, though they're not very useful.
* SensoryOverload: An inadvertent example. [[spoiler:After she stops taking the suppressants that dull all her senses]] she perceives the world much more strongly than usual, causing her to feel overloaded, drained and slightly feverish. It cuts into her date with Kotarou [[spoiler:but not as much as when she poisons the town moments later, killing every leaving organism inside that lacks protection. It's implied that her holding in her poison may have been what was really responsible, making it a possible invocation and subversion.]]
* SuperHeroOrigin: Lucia doesn't seem to be a normal super power user like Shizuru or Kotarou. Rather, [[spoiler:her poisonous person abilities and vibration power are the result of an experiment performed on a large amount of orphans. She was the only survivor.]]
* SuperpowerMeltdown: [[spoiler:Lucia’s suppressants stop working in every route, after which she has to live inside bunkers until a new one can be developed. In her own route, her body is fiddled with so that she makes even more poison after this. This already makes her unsafe to be around for anyone but Kotarou or a few special individuals, but then she’s manipulated into setting them off. The entire town of Kazamatsuri is killed. Plants, animals and people. In theory, even the bacteria are dead.]]
* TouchOfDeath: In a nightmare that she has, things Lucia touches with her hands die. She’s worried that it happens for real, but it’s noted that it was just a string of bad luck that gave her classmates that impression. [[spoiler:Turns out she really does have it and can only really minimize the effects.]]
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Lucia has a reputation for loving spicy food and seems confused when people react with shock to her enjoyment of it. [[spoiler:She has no sense of taste.]]
* {{Tsundere}}: Kotori catches on pretty quickly to Lucia's attitude. It's partially intentional since she’s interested in Kotarou but [[spoiler:has only partial control over her abilities]], so she tries to keep him distant from her. Not that it’s entirely a pose, as she quickly makes clear.
* WalkingTechBane: [[spoiler:Lucia destroys anything like complex machinery quickly when she touches it, so for the most part she can’t normally use stuff like that without taking some form of suppressant. She can’t even reliably use a gun.]]
* WalkingWasteland: [[spoiler:As a result of Guardian's experiments, and the reason she wears gloves.]]

* BigEater: Chihaya eats constantly. Kotarou figures
that commands a lot the constant eating is how she manages to keep her strength up since she’s not particularly muscular. He's wrong.
* BlankWhiteEyes: Frequently; possibly more often than the rest
of respect at Kotarou's school, though the cast combined.
* ButtMonkey: Chihaya is the butt of numerous jokes.

she's new to the job. She has close ties to Shizuru not very smart.

* TransferStudentUniforms: [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] - her new uniform turned up in the wrong size. In fact, it's Sakuya's size, because she thought he needed a uniform too.

* HandsomeLech: He seems to like AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: [[spoiler:In Chihaya's route and the image of a flirty young guy, Moon route, he takes on an alternate form larger than any other familiar in the story.]]
* BattleButler: He's officially Chihaya's butler,
though he hints tries to claim at first that he's her brother. Personally, he refers to himself as her knight, which shows his sheer resolve to protect her no matter what.
* BishieSparkle: When asked to go outside the clubroom, he wanders the hallways being gorgeous and charming, making many girls quickly fall for his bishie sparkles.
* {{Bishonen}}: Kotarou irritably notes that with Sakuya's looks and personality he would be very popular.
* BlankWhiteEyes: [[UpToEleven Complete with black screen and cold wind]] whenever Chihaya makes a comment that hurts him.
* TheCavalry: [[spoiler:In Moon Route Sakuya shows up after Lucia, Kotori, Sakuya HB, Akane and all the normal people Kotarou called for have fallen. His presence alone is enough to help turn the tide of battle for the moment.]]
* CherryBlossomGirl: Gender-inverted. His name even sounds like Sakura, and [[spoiler: as a man who transformed into a cherry tree, and then reborn as a familiar, the affiliation is fairly explicit]].
-> Sakuya: [[spoiler: "Chihaya-san... all cherry blossoms fall apart eventually. It's in their nature.]]
* ChickMagnet: Whenever he walks the halls, crowds of fangirls gather to gush over him.
* ClothFu: His secondary ability [[spoiler:and the one that differentiates him from Kotarou, who instead has body fluid control/Aurora]] is the ability to manipulate cloth.
* FailureKnight: Sakuya protects Chihaya because he failed to protect [[spoiler:the woman he loved from Salvation.]]
* TheGadfly: He claims to hate Kotarou and constantly screws with him, but mostly just seems to enjoy teasing him.
* GenerationXerox: Kotarou is this to him in the Chihaya Route.
** [[spoiler: It is even more true in the Shizuru route, in which Kotarou also fails to stop Salvation, and becomes a tree]].
* HeroicSacrifice:
** [[spoiler:In Chihaya’s route, Sakuya sacrifices himself to save Chihaya, Kotarou and Akane. However, Akane takes his body and turns it into a giant monster. He’s returned to normal, but this doesn’t save him.]]
** [[spoiler:In Moon Route, he comes to the aid of the group by fusing all of his potential existences together. It does get him to the battle, but at the cost of sacrificing himself from ever existing in any recreated world.]]
* HypocriticalHumor: Sakuya criticizes Kotarou for openly thinking the miso soup Chihaya made was terrible, but similarly collapses himself moments later.
* IHatePastMe: In a manner of speaking. Sakuya refers to and thinks of Kotarou as his past self, though they're entirely different individuals. Because of this, he is somewhat ashamed to see Kotarou and treats him quite hostilely.
* MyGreatestFailure: Sakuya was unable to protect [[spoiler:his love Minata]].
* ParentalSubstitute: Sakuya largely serves as Chihaya’s father figure, though he’d prefer to be thought of as her big brother.
* PlantPerson: [[spoiler:Since becoming a familiar.]]
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: [[spoiler:Sakuya is from a previously wiped out civilization of an unknown age. Shizuru's route mentions seventy thousand year old civilizations and Moon route implies that there are many much older than that ''that.'' That said, he spent most of that time as a tree. When the tree starts dying, Sakuya goes with it.]]
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Sakuya’s eyes are a pretty good hint that there’s more to the guy than just some goofy guy that makes fun of Kotarou.
* RetGone: [[spoiler:His death in Moon Route wiped his existence from all future possible worlds. He somehow managed to appear one last time in Terra route.]]
* SpotlightStealingSquad: Chihaya's route is actually at least as much about Sakuya as Chihaya herself if not more.
* TallDarkAndHandsome
* {{Tsundere}}: A rare, non-romantic example. In her route, Chihaya mentions that Sakuya doesn't actually hate Kotarou nearly as much as he pretends to.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Sakuya is so afraid of cats
that he tries not to form close relationships.

* CuteMute: In several routes, she's barely capable
of speech. She's capable of learning to speak any human language very quickly, but is frequently kept from learning anything since being in the outside world puts her in danger of being discovered.
* DefrostingIceQueen: She starts showing more emotions when she interacts more with Kotarou.
* ElegantGothicLolita: She wears
a ramen shop black gothic lolita style dress.
* EmotionlessGirl: During most routes she is very inexpressive and inhuman, so she kind of creeps Kotarou out on the few occasions he sees her.

* LackOfEmpathy: She's born as a basically BlankSlate that is here to judge humanity and see if they can coexist properly with the Earth and at the beginning has no real intellect or emotion. After developing intellect, she still has nothing like human emotion or empathy. In some routes, she has no real humanity or emotion.

* ThirdPersonPerson: She uses the third person in Terra, the first route where she really begins to speak. It's not quite cute so much as viewing herself as something that fulfills a role rather than an individual.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: The first way Kotarou manages to get through to her in Moon is by sharing coffee with her. After her initial disinterest, she seems to grow pretty fond of it.
* UncannyValleyGirl: The Key in Kotori and Shizuru’s route is highly alien and doesn’t really feel like a human. [[spoiler:In Kotori’s route it can barely speak or do anything that Kotarou is capable of interpreting easily.
