* AdaptationalVillainy: In the anime, she's more selfish and less concerned with others' well-being.



** A more heroic one is found in "I Love You", in which she gives a BigNo upon receiving a ReasonYouSuckSpeech from Kotonoha.

* TragicHero: Manga. [[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). This, however, is in direct contrast to the complete [[JerkAss fuckwad]] he is in the Anime and in the Cross Days Manga.]]
** Depending on the player's choices, he can be like this in the game, too. [[spoiler Like the manga, but unlike the anime, Makoto is portrayed as a good person whose fatal weakness is that he's indecisive. The tragic part can be subverted if the player gets a good ending, or Makoto's fatal weakness can result in either Kotonoha committing suicide-by-fall, Sekai's throat getting slashed with a chainsaw, Makoto himself being stabbed with a knife, or in School Days HQ, one of the trio getting run over by a train.]]

* DullSurprise: Sekai suffers from this when she overhears Makoto, (whom she invited hopeful to have sex with for the first time), [[spoiler:doing it with Youko]], while Sekai was taking shower to prepare. [[spoiler:Not even after bursting through the doors to interrupt them she has anything but her standard expression.]] Even Makoto who's usually guilty of this, reacts with more appropriate (shocked) expression after being told that [[spoiler:Youko isn't Sekai's older sister, but her '''mother''']].

** 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.]]

* BigNo: Makoto, at the end of the ''Valentine Days'' {{OVA}}, when he finds out the huge box of chocolates he received were not from Setsuna but from [[spoiler: Taisuke]]. Upon discovery, not only does [[spoiler: Taisuke]] get surrounded by [[BishieSparkle Bishie Sparkles]] but [[spoiler:[[BromanticFoil he cannot hide his shyness in his]] [[GayOption now extremely feminine face]]]].

* 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 pursue 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 vanishes without a trace and he's stuck with Kotonoha.

* DullSurprise: He apparently lacks facial expression unless things are getting too stressful. A good example is one of the bad endings of the original game: he watches [[spoiler: Kotonoha murdering Sekai with a saw]], and his look to [[spoiler: Kotonoha]] immediately afterwards is one of vague bemusement. Thankfully they fixed this in ''HQ''.

** 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 Kotonha, due to the bullies telling him that girls like forceful men.]]
* EvenTheGuysWantHim: Everyone wants him and we mean ''everyone''. [[spoiler: LOL, Taisuke and Yuuki from Cross Days.]]
* EverythingButTheGirl: Failing to get the true ending for Yuki's route results in this because either [[spoiler: Yuki stops cross dressing and "Yu" is never seen again or Yuki's gender is revealed and he runs away before Makoto can confess his true feelings.]]

* FreudianExcuse: His parents are divorced [[note]]And his father is an asshole the likes of which Makoto would never reach[[/note]] and his mother is always busy with work as a nurse, so a few abandonment issues might be there. Compare to his half-brother Ayumu Inou [[spoiler:who was repeatedly raped by Asagi Inou (his aunt) since childhood and pretty much turned into a sex beast before rescued by his sister, Kagura]], Shun Hazama [[spoiler:whose mother, Hatsuka, although a loving mother herself, seems to prefer Tomaru over her son's opinion or decision]] or even Kei Ogata [[spoiler:physically and psychologically tormented by their father, later blackmailed into relationship with Midori Nagawa or Yumi Matou (both may LoveRedeems in their true path)]].
* TheGadfly: Especially in Shiny Days, where he can purposefully engage in most BlatantLies without batting eyelash, just [[ItAmusedMe to mess with people]]. It varies from innocent jokes, to lying about being lover with his six-ish year old sister. Latter generally give bad ends, but reactions can be amusing nonetheless.

* HeroicBastard: Judging from the fact that he has his mother's surname and that his father is using Tomoe's surname (in order to inherit Tomoe's fortune), one could reasonably presume he and Itaru were born out of wedlock. However, in Shiny Days he flat out states several times that his parents are divorced (he even specifies that it was messy). He most likely uses his mother's maiden name simply because he lives with her and hates his father.
* HyperAwareness: In the true ending of Yuki's route, he realizes quickly that Kotonoha is not the most stable girl and [[spoiler: keeps his relationship with Yuki a secret. It's also hinted that he plans on having her see a therapist after his conversation with Yuki because he wants to make Kotonoha the last person he hurt with his jerkass ways.]]

In Cross Days manga however, he comes of as DepravedBisexual, being willing to have a threesome with Yuki and Sekai, despite knowing he's a guy.

* InTheBlood: Makoto follows his father's footsteps in sexing up as many people as he can; some Overflow games shares the 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).]]

And since [[OT3 both Sekai and Kotonoha are fine with not being his only girlfriend]], it doesn't seem like he's going to have problems there anytime soon.

* LoveAtFirstPunch: Guess how he first met Yuki? He met the male Yuki first when he punched him in the face for cheating on Kotonoha. He ignores that part but then he meets his alter ego and falls for "her".
* 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.]]

* TooKinkyToTorture: Amusingly averted in possible ending in Summer Days. It doesn't technically count as an official ending since the player has to massively screw up for this to happen, and it's treated as black comedy and deliberately out-of-character anyway so it's more of a joke ending, but there's a possibility that [[spoiler: Makoto will wake up tied to a chair, courtesy of Setsuna's mother, so that Setsuna can show her love by using a whip on Makoto.]]
* TragicHero: Manga. [[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). This, however, is in direct contrast to the complete [[JerkAss fuckwad]] he is in the Anime and in the Cross Days Manga.]]
** Depending on the player's choices, he can be like this in the game, too. [[spoiler: Like the manga, but unlike the anime, Makoto is portrayed as a good person whose fatal weakness is that he's indecisive. The tragic part can be subverted if the player gets a good ending, or Makoto's fatal weakness can result in either Kotonoha committing suicide-by-fall, Sekai's throat getting slashed with a chainsaw, Makoto himself being stabbed with a knife, or in School Days HQ one of the trio getting run over by a train.]]

** His instances of cheating on [[spoiler: Youko ]] 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.

* BuxomIsBetter: [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed!]] Buxom is better at winning over boys in the School Days universe...which actually has terrible consequences for Kotonoha, since she hates the attention (it's a primary reason she's so shy in the present day) and her jealous female classmates spread ugly rumors about her deliberately "tempting" boys with her huge breasts, which makes Kotonoha's life much worse. [[spoiler:Reconstructed somewhat if you pursue her in the game. She gains more confidence in her body, and when alone with Makoto, she'll gladly flaunt her assets for him and even uses them to [[MarshmallowHell smother him sometimes.]] But when pursuing Sekai or the other girls, she plays this straight but in a less positive way, where she tries using her body to win him over and in the Bavarois/Lust Ending she'll verbally bully Sekai by telling her lies that Makoto likes her body more than Sekai's.]]
* ClassRepresentative: In episode 9 of the {{Anime}} Kotonoha tells Taisuke that she continually mans the reception desk for her class' haunted house because she is the class rep ''and'' a committee member.

* DespairEventHorizon: Crossed it in the anime after [[spoiler: being raped by Taisuke and then finding Makoto dead]].
** In the game, there's two instances where she can cross it: [[spoiler: in the first instance, if Kotonoha gets raped, and you then actively pursue Sekai without somehow dealing with Kotonoha's trauma, Kotonoha will first overhear Makoto and Sekai have sex, and then watch them have sex from outside in the snow, causing her to laugh insanely and then slash Sekai's throat with a saw the next time they meet.]] In the second instance, if [[spoiler: the player is playing a path where it's clear Makoto loves Sekai more, and if Kotonoha has resorted to repeatedly having sex with Makoto to keep him interested and Makoto doesn't make his feelings for Sekai clear by refusing Kotonoha's blowjob the last time, Makoto and Sekai will visit Kotonoha to tell her Makoto loves Sekai, causing Kotonoha to commit suicide by falling off the building's balcony.]]
