Added DiffLines:

* InnocentlyInsensitive: During the first part, Guy cheerfully says more than a few things that are somewhat mean to Luke. [[spoiler: Not so innocent when you find out his backstory and his original [[RevengeByProxy plan]] for Luke.]] After [[spoiler: Akzeriuth and TheReveal]] he drops this aspect...mostly.

* {{Hypocrite}}: Is very pissed off at Luke calling Van "Master Van" even after TheReveal but he, himself, still views Van in the same way as Luke does. For all his bluster and rage, he's obviously struggling a lot in regards to [[spoiler: facing his mentor and father figure as an enemy.]]



* ParentalSubstitute: How Luke views him because Duke Fabre does his best to pretend Luke doesn't exist while Van teaches him swordplay. [[spoiler: Unfortunately Van was [[InvokedTrope invoking]] this so he could manipulate Luke.]]

[[spoiler: Unfortunately Van was [[InvokedTrope invoking]] this so he could manipulate Luke. He also did the same to Asch for similar reasons, though Asch is more aware of exactly what was done to him.]]

* * DisneyDeath: [[spoiler:Someone resembling him comes back two years later after the final battle. [[GainaxEnding It was made ambiguous if it was really him, Luke, or a combination of the two that came back.]]]]

* TheBully: A weird combination of this trope StealthMentor. Asch is a remorseless bully to Luke throughout most of their interactions together but his motivations for doing so are only partly because he hates him. [[spoiler:Since he's SecretlyDying, he needs Luke to be strong enough to take out Van and he finds Luke's compassionate nature post-haircut to be a constant source of frustration. Since he refuses to acknowledge Luke as his own individual person, believing that Luke is nothing more than a copy of him, he takes the fact that Luke ''isn't'' a cold-hearted warrior like he is as a personal attack against him]].

* HopelessBossFight: His first duel with Luke is set up as one and the player will most likely lose but it is possible to win.

* SourOutsideSadInside: Heavily implied (and [[AllThereInTheManual shown in extra materials]]) that he honestly does want to connect with others and is still that sweet, serious kid he was before. Unfortunately, the trauma he's gone through and his ''many'' issues prevent him from being honest about his feelings and he spends most of his time doing his best to drive away ''anyone'' who attempts to get close to him.

Such actions are [[TruthInTelevision far from uncommon]] among victims of similar abuse to what he went through.

* {{Hair Of Gold|HeartOfGold}}: The hair of gold is always on display and heart of gold is most commonly shown around her subjects. She's done a great deal to make her kingdom a better place to live for everyone.

* IdiotHero: He admits it himself. Justified in that, even before the dramatic reveal, he only remembers the last seven years of his life and was basically under house arrest and deliberately LockedOutOfTheLoop that entire time.

[[spoiler: ''With'' the dramatic reveal, he ultimately averts it as, taking account his true age and all he does post ImportantHaircut, Luke is actually pretty smart.]]

Added DiffLines:

* PromotionToParent: An interesting take on it. [[spoiler: Guy did the bulk of raising Luke when he came to the manor and completing the Jewel of Gardios sidequest has Duke Fabre refer to Guy as Luke's "real" father by his actions and treatment of Luke.]]
