Added DiffLines:

* {{Irony}}: The SpoiledBrat {{Jerkass}} turns out to be the [[AllLovingHero nicest]] of [[NiceGuy nice guys]].

Added DiffLines:

* AbhorrentAdmirer: Luke at least views her this way; her [[ClingyJealousGirl clingy]] nature and refusal to shut up about their ChildhoodMarriagePromise makes her ''very'' annoying to Luke. She moves past this.


Added DiffLines:

* ClingyJealousGirl: When the second thing she does is get confrontational about Tear's presence on her first appearance, it's obvious she's this. She's not as bad as other examples; once she befriends Tear, she drops that attitude entirely. She remains rather clingy to Luke [[spoiler: until TheReveal shakes her and makes her start rethinking everything.]]

Added DiffLines:

* LovingAShadow: Just by how she treats Luke and her glorification of the ChildhoodMarriagePromise suggests this, paired with her romantic nature and tendency to pester Luke about remembering his promise. [[spoiler: It ultimately turns out to be more complicated than that; Natalia made the promise with Asch and the traits she loves still are in there, if buried under a lot of trauma.]] Part of her character development lies in her moving past that and finding true, genuine love for Luke [[spoiler: though whether she picks the original or replica is unknown.]]

* BadassPacifist: He has every right to [[spoiler: [[DrivenToSuicide kill himself]]]] or [[spoiler: [[ThenLetMeBeEvil simply beat his friends out of]] [[SelfDestructiveCharge revenge]]]] after their [[spoiler: [[FelonyMisdemeanor treatment]] post-Akzeriuth]], but he stay strong to his [[ReluctantWarrior moral code]] anyway.

** Case in point, almost everyone blames him for [[spoiler:Akzeriuth]], even though logically trusting the man who helped raise him makes far more sense than trusting the people he just met. Essentially, they're [[FelonyMisdemeanor blaming him for being a victim.]] No wonder he has so many issues.

* ChildrenRaiseYou: An interesting take on the trope. [[spoiler: Guy raising and caring for Luke made him move beyond RevengeBeforeReason and ultimately perform an off-screen HeelFaceTurn.]]



* CovertPervert: Relatively early on, there's a skit that brings up showers and the women of the party in the same sentence. While the girls are going after [[ButtMonkey Luke]] (thanks to jumping to conclusions) only Jade notices that Guy is ''drooling''.

Added DiffLines:

* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler: Off screen, Guy did this as he grew to care for [[MoralityPet Luke]]. After Akzeriuth and a final confrontation with Van, Guy is firmly on the team's, and particularly Luke's, side.]]

Added DiffLines:

* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: Some dialogue and thoughts from Luke reveals that his UndyingLoyalty towards Van comes from this; Van was the only one to really actually care for Luke (specifically as a ParentalSubstitute) and Luke is almost fanatically loyal for that one reason. [[spoiler: Makes it more tragic as Van never actually even saw Luke ''as a person''.]] Luke's attachment to Guy is similar and, ultimately, he attaches himself to anyone who he sees as being nice to him pretty quickly.

* BreakTheHaughty: At the start of the game Luke is a entitled, arrogant, spoiled brat. [[spoiler:Then Akzeriuth happens, he learns he's a replica and TheTeam [[[[FelonyMisdemeanor abandons him...]]]] All of this is [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructed]] when one takes into account [[spoiler:Luke is truly seven]] and the consequences of being "broken" become evident.
