* 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.

* 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.

* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Ryuuki is a good enough swordsman to make it the semifinals of a combat tournament with some of the finest warriors in the empire. He also [[spoiler: takes down a group of assassins in a pitch-dark room in order to rescue Shuurei, in spite of his own serious fear of the dark. Which stemmed from his previouslpreviouslky mentioned mother and brothers locking him in dark places for god knows how long rotherWorship: To Seien, the only one of his older brothers who was ever nice to him. This was especially true when they were kids, but it still shows: Ryuuki's main reason for refusing to rule is the hope that by making himself thoroughly objectionable and useless as Emperor, he will inspire someone to bring Seien back from exile to take the throne.

* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Ryuuren is so quirky that most people can barely understand anything he says. He's also a genius who travels as he wishes because, regardless of the place, nobody can keep him ''out''.
