** He also tries this in the anime. [[spoiler:After realizing the damage he has done to Kotonoha, he commits to her fully in order to make up for his mistakes. Unfortunately, the methods he used to break up with Sekai were... harsh, to say the least.]]

* DidNotGetTheGirl: All endings that aren't the true ending concerning Yuki's route. In some Cross Day endings, if Yuki continues to pursue him, he starts falling in love with "Yu". However, if Yuki pursues another girl or [[spoiler:can't overcome his fear of Makoto might not liking him]], then Yuki can make "Yu" disappear forever. That means the one girl he dedicates himself to vanishes without a trace and he's stuck with Kotonoha.

** In the true ending of Cross Days, he is disgusted at Taisuke who [[spoiler:continues to gang bang Yuki. He stands up to him, but gets beaten up as a result.]]
** There's an interesting subversion in School Days and School Days HQ with Taisuke. In some of the routes, Makoto can witness Kotonoha being bullied far earlier than the lunch box incident at the end. Specifically, during the festival day, Makoto can witness Otome and her posse making fun of Kotonoha for supposedly having lied about Makoto being her boyfriend. If Makoto doesn't call them out at this point, ''Taisuke'' of all people will do so instead. The subversion in this case is that the "standards" ''lead to'' the "evil," since it's only in routes where Taisuke calls out the bullies that [[spoiler:he ends up raping Kotonoha, due to the bullies telling him that girls like forceful men.]]

* FauxAffablyEvil: Crosses over into this in the Cross Days manga, which arguably portrays his most [[AdaptationalVillainy despicable and irredeemable incarnation]] yet. He coolly mocks Yuuki's efforts to stop him from exploiting Kotonoha and Sekai, shows a terrifyingly predatory side to him when he's with Yuuki's feminine alter-ego Yu, and in stark contrast to virtually every other portrayal of him, he outright tries to ''rape'' Roka when his efforts to separate her from Yuuki start to fail. In fact, it could be argued that he's actually the ''villain'' of the manga.
* {{Flanderization}}: Arguably the case in the Anime and in Cross Days compared to how he was in the original School Days. In the first novel, Makoto was portrayed as someone who ''could'' become addicted to sex and be a complete jerkwad to others, but it was portrayed as largely resultant of [[InnocentlyInsensitive not having a good grasp on reading people or talking to them]] combined with being extremely indecisive, anxious and wanting take the least troublesome path (though whether for himself or others varies). His more angry side only came out when he got fed up by the tug-of-war Sekai and Kotonoha were fighting over him, and he was so lost on what to do that even friggin' ''[[AbductionIsLove Taisuke]]'' can have more of an idea of how to proceed. Come the anime though, and all his negative traits - lack of commitment, sex-addiction, insensitivity to others - are amplified to be his defining traits, without any of the contexts that made them more redeemable in the VN - [[{{Jerkass}} Otome]] can even be considered to lampshade this when noting the Makoto in front of her and the Makoto she remembers are two separate people. The Summer Days version of him goes further by making him pretty much a depraved Omnisexual, but even that is nothing compared to Cross Days were all his negative traits aren't just maxed out but are portrayed as ''deliberately done'' rather than him just not understanding other's feelings.

* TheGadfly: Especially in Shiny Days, where he can purposefully engage in most BlatantLies without batting an eyelash, just [[ItAmusedMe to mess with people]]. It varies from innocent jokes, to lying about being lovers with his six-ish year old sister. Doing the latter sort of thing generally leads to a bad end, but the reactions can be amusing nonetheless.

* InTheBlood: Makoto follows his father's footsteps in sexing up as many people as he can; some Overflow games share their universe with School Days, and Tomaru Sawagoe is in most of them; in fact, he started about 4 different big families by himself, and then made some more with his own offsprings... [[spoiler:This becomes even more pronounced when you realize he is related to about anywhere from a fourth to a third of the people he can end up with. Much like his father, he has a thing for sleeping with his own family (though in his case, it is usually unknowingly).]]

* LoveRedeems: [[spoiler:In the true ending of Cross Days, he is willing to get beaten up by Taisuke's thugs to make sure that Yu is okay at the end. He even goes as far as telling Yuki that nothing matters anymore as long as he's with him. Naturally, this is the only ending where he redeems his cheating ways. Of course, he cannot tell Kotonoha about him dating Yuki because he ''knows'' she'll go {{yandere}} on him.]]

* TragicHero: The Manga version of him is portrayed as this. [[spoiler:He genuinely cares about both Sekai and Kotonoha, but his FatalFlaw of not being able to choose between them and carrying on a simultaneous relationship would not be resolved until it is too late (Kotonoha unintentionally wounds Makoto while trying to attack Sekai, and while he was in the hospital, Sekai kills Kotonoha in revenge). This, however, is in direct contrast to the complete [[{{Jerkass}} fuckwad]] he is in the Anime and in the Cross Days Manga.]]

* YourCheatingHeart: The Anime and Cross Days versions of him practically ''define'' this trope.
** His instances of cheating on [[spoiler:Youko]] in Summer/Shiny Days can be excused at very least, as she went to Paris without telling him, and forgot her phone so she couldn't call him, so he had every reason to think that she just got bored with him and didn't bother to break up with him.

* FreudianExcuse: She resents her father because she believes that he just used her mother and then threw her away after she got pregnant, leading her to fear that the same thing will eventually happen to her. That would explain a ''lot''. This gets brought up in Shiny Days where it's implied that she is jealous of Setsuna who gets to be with both her own father Shun [[spoiler:(who is ''her'' father too)]] and the boy she likes.

Even the scene where it ''looks like'' Makoto and Sekai are going to have sex, complete with Sekai getting naked, ends abruptly as Makoto leaves before they can actually do the deed.
