* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: In a KickTheDog moment, she blackmails the Shibuya Ward Chiefs into killing the heroes, in order to dissuade betrayal. [[spoiler:Unsurprisingly, they end up defecting anyway--but it doesn't matter as, without confirming this, Kuroyuki destroys Shibuya to kill them all just in case. She also realizes that when they NeverFoundTheBody, that means the heroes are likely still alive.]]

* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: [[spoiler:She's 120~130, thanks to having obtained CompleteImmortality.]]


Added DiffLines:

* StrappedToAnOperatingTable: A less sinister version in his case: he was strapped to a table thanks to the operations done so that he could recover after his fight with Amagiya.

Added DiffLines:

* StrappedToAnOperatingTable: [[spoiler:As seen in a flashback, when Kuroyuki implanted the original Grim Rock in her.]]


Added DiffLines:

* StrappedToAnOperatingTable: As seen when he was a kid, as per is presumably common for the tekigousha experiments. In his case, he requested for them to remove the restraints, as he wouldn't bother trying to escape.


Added DiffLines:

* TheBaroness: Of the Rosa Klebb variety, and of the definite {{Sadist}} variety.


Added DiffLines:

* EvilutionaryBiologist: While not so interested in wiping out normal humans, she very much has an interest in taking the tekigousha enhancements as far as she can go, with the finale indicating that she wishes to create the "perfect tekigousha".


Added DiffLines:

* HalfTheManHeUsedToBe: [[spoiler:Amagiya slices her in half, though with her HealingFactor, she regenerates so quickly for it to not even be seen, beyond the tear in her shirt.]]


Added DiffLines:

* PlayingWithSyringes: This is her schtick in general, but it can best be seen in a flashback, when she [[spoiler:experimented on Shirayuki]].

Added DiffLines:

* AsleepInClass: A post-series omake shows him dozing off while Souich is tutoring him and the other teenagers of the series.


Added DiffLines:

* HesBack: After his HeroicBSOD and subsequent GetAHoldOfYourselfMan punch from Souji, he resolutely returns to the fight.


Added DiffLines:

* InTheBack: During his second fight with Uzuki, she pierces through his back with her right hand.


Added DiffLines:

* ActionSurvivor: Though his ability is a lifesaver, Akane amounts to a bystander who inadvertently got dragged into everything, with no skills in combat whatsoever. It's particularly noticeable in the finale, where everyone has their duties and Akane figures he'll just scout on his own, since it's not like he can contribute to any of the groups.


Added DiffLines:

* RedPillBluePill: The heroes give him the option to stay behind in safety rather than accompany them into the final battle. Without hesitation, Akane makes it clear that he intends to help them to the very end.

* CharacterDevelopment: He loses some of his blind carefreeness and naivety, going from someone who didn't quite register all the blood he was shedding or think about what came after defeating Kuroyuki to someone who, while still ultimately upbeat and idealistic, also shows more war-weariness and understanding of what it ''really'' means to keep smiling.

* CharacterDevelopment: The lion's share of it. Fujimaru's growth from a bitter, anti-social villain to a determined atoner as he moves on from his past is the most drastic in the series (barring perhaps Makoto's) and encompasses the entire story, from his debut to the epilogue.

* PreMortemOneLiner: Sort of. He's not the one killing Kuroyuki, but after destroying the device in the Mirror Room and knowing that Kuroyuki is soon to be defeated, he tells her this:
-->"... Old hag...! You'll get... what you deserve...!"



* ShutUpKirk: He tries to do this in response to Takeru's KirkSummation. Given that Fujimaru's on the verge of a VillainousBSOD by then, it works about as well as you'd expect.



* {{Trigger}}: Unsurprising for someone likely dealing with Complex PTSD, he has a few vague ones that tend to be somewhat context-dependent.

** Post-HeelFaceTurn, comments along the lines of "How many people do you intend to kill/have you allowed to die/etc." This and the one regarding Kuroyuki are what cause his flashback episode in Tachikawa. Once he starts moving past his guilt, though, they fortunately begin to fade.



* CharacterDevelopment: Through his friendship with Fujimaru and being inspired by Takeru, he decides to stop being an ExtremeDoormat for his family and the government, forsaking them in order to do what's right and fight for the ''people'' rather than his duties.

* CharacterDevelopment: The Desperation (and, to an extent, the Faith) arc(s) deals him a HumblePie, forcing him to drop some of the BigBrotherInstinct due to how much it's messing Souji up and swallow down what he himself refers to as him having been "conceited, selfish, and idiotic".

* CharacterDevelopment: He starts off as being a timid fighter and a bit of Souichi's shadow, going along with his brother's will even when he wants to speak up. The climax of the Desperation arc has him finally stand his ground. Also, while perhaps having more to do with initial shyness than an outright personality change, he goes from being TheQuietOne to something more akin to the CheerfulChild.
