* KingIncognito: Frequently, especially earlier in the series, and on at least one occasion his subjects don't initially believe him when he ''does'' state his true identity. On the other hand, the first time it comes up it's almost immediately subverted: when they first meet, Ryuuki introduces himself to Shuurei as Ran Shuuei, but Shuurei sees through the lie instantly since she's already met the ''real'' Ran Shuuei, and who else but the Emperor would be wandering around the palace gardens in casual clothing in the middle of the day?

* GoldDigger: She first became Ryuuki's concubine because the job came with a payment of 500 gold ryo. In Shuurei's case the trope is less a reflection of persona greed and more one of extreme practicality: she and her father are struggling to make ends meet and Shuurei has personally witnessed the kind of suffering and death that can come from poverty, so she's very motivated to secure financial stability for her household.
