* GenericCuteness: Apparently suffers from it, as while Morte is [[InformedAttractiveness stated to be very pretty]], Rhi'a has a near-identical face and similar figure, yet her appearance is never commented on (except by one random NPC on the Zifnir who you may miss if you don't TalkToEveryone, and who [[LostForever is only around for that one brief level]]).

* {{Badass}}: She has held her own against the World Salvation committee for years before she met Kyrie.
** BadassInDistress:
*** In the anime where she wouldn’t tell the Ferals where Kyrie and the Destruct Code were despite being beaten (almost to death).
*** In the game, [[spoiler:she briefly ends up brainwashed by Serpens Rex, then is cursed by her and nearly dies]].
*** In the manga, she's taken captive by [[spoiler:Lacertus and Aquila Rex, who have betrayed her trust in the World Destruction Committee]]. [[DefiantCaptive She doesn't stay distressed for long]]. [[spoiler:Then she has a realization so horrible that she momentarily forgets how to fight, and winds up in ''serious'' danger because of it.]]
** BadassLongcoat: Sans sleeves.

** BadassAdorable: He kicks ass! This does not stop small children (or Kyrie) from squeeing over him.
** BadassArmfold: One of his favored poses, including his VictoryPose in the game.

* {{Badass}}: Her game counterpart but her anime counterpart has some good moments.
** BadassBandolier: Her double-belt is actually a string of ammo. Interestingly, she still wears it in the manga, despite not having her guns there.

* TheButcher: His starting nickname in the game. Of course, the only way it's fitting at all is if you look at his kitchen skills - but even then, most of his cooking is vegetarian.



* CombatMedic: In the game, he's got the widest variety of healing spells but is not terrible with his knives, either.



* [[spoiler: EleventhHourSuperpower: In the anime and video game.]]

to:

* [[spoiler: EleventhHourSuperpower: In all versions, he eventually gets a large bump in power right at the anime end. In the anime, he remembers his identity and video game.thus regains his ability to turn anything he wants into sand. In the game, he gets a powered-up fight mode about halfway through the game, but doesn't reveal that he's also now immune to the Destruct Code's order to destroy the world until just before the final fight. In the manga, he suddenly realizes his humanity grants him the powers of a Creator as well as a Destroyer in the middle of the final battle.]]



* PersonOfMassDestruction

to:

* PersonOfMassDestructionPersonOfMassDestruction: Standing too close to Kyrie when his powers go off is hazardous to your health.



* NotEvilJustMisunderstood: Kyrie thinks she's this in the game, that she really cares about the state of the world but [[MercyKill doesn't know any way to help except to end it]]. She seems to think perhaps he's speaking nonsense, but is too distracted by other plot to really reply. [[spoiler:It turns out he may have been ''right'', as once she learns he might be able to fix the world, she's as gung-ho about that as she previously was about using his powers to destroy everything.]]



* SpellMyNameWithAnS: His last name is written マードル in Japanese, probably meant to be something like ''Mardol'' but given as ''Mardrus'' in the English game. No other version actually gives him a last name, so it's just a question of fans quibbling over translations.

* HalfHumanHybrid: Stated in the game that he's the son of the previous Lupus Rex and a human woman. The anime and manga mention that he's a half-human, but doesn't say who his father was.

* PartialTransformation: In the game, many of her attacks make use of partial transformations. Her aerial attacks always use her wings, and her blow attacks use her claws and tail; if she doesn't need a dragon part, she doesn't normally transform it. She's never seen to take a full dragon form, though the ''very'' draconic skeleton of her great-great-grandfather implies she either has one or will gain one as she ages.

She uses similar attack patterns in the anime, but in the manga, she simply always has her wings and tail and never transforms her hands into claws.

Added DiffLines:

* HateSink: The game is slow about trotting out its true BigBad, so Rajiv is there for the first third of the game to give you someone to really hate.


Added DiffLines:

* PlotIrrelevantVillain: Aside from being a HateSink, most everything he does is irrelevant: Naja could've locked Kyrie in jail on his own, and Agan would have been sought out to add to the team whether or not he needed rescuing first. Rajiv just provides some extra boss fights.


Added DiffLines:

* VillainForgotToLevelGrind: Averted. While your first fight against him with just Kyrie and Morte isn't particularly tough (as it's one of your first and the game is still easing you into the mechanics), your final fight against him to rescue Agan is ''much'' tougher (despite the fact that you've added [[LightningBruiser Taupy]] to your team), to the point that many players quit the game at that point because of the sudden difficulty spike.

* {{Deuteragonist}}: Sure, Kyrie may be the main character, but without Morte, the plot is going ''nowhere''.[[note]]Seriously. Without her, the story would go something like, "Kyrie [[PowerIncontinence accidentally wiped out his village]], so he got thrown in jail. He couldn't do anything about it on his own, so his powers activated again and again until the world was destroyed. EverybodysDeadDave. The end."[[/note]] If you want to think of it in terms of [[IncendiaryExponent fire]], Kyrie may be the spark that starts the plot, but Morte is the kerosene-soaked log that keeps it going.



* WaifFu: She's only 5'4" (162cm) but is more than capable of taking care of herself in a fight and wielding that {{BFS}}

* YoungAndInCharge: She's 16 and the youngest of the Destruction Committee members.[[note]]Due to dragon biology, Rhi'a may only be the equivalent of 15 [[Really700YearsOld despite being 300]], and Taupy is noted to be the equivalent of his early 20s but may be chronologically younger due to Feral biology [[AllThereInTheManual in certain Japanese extras]][[/note]] However, she's also got the most forceful personality, and she's not lacking in fighting experience, so no one questions why she's the one calling the shots.



* AdaptationalWimp: The manga robs her of her guns, and so takes most of her fighting ability (she uses her BreathWeapon precisely ''once''). However, it's downplayed, as she's the PluckyComicRelief and just stays out of fights in general, preferring to sing and be silly instead of becoming TheLoad and getting in everyone's way.



* DraconicHumanoid: Of a CuteMonsterGirl variety. Normally, she only has the horns and a series of small ridges down her back, though she's capable of growing a scaly tail and wings.
