* UndyingLoyalty: When Simon was [[spoiler:grieving after Kamina's death]], Rossiu was the only one openly concerned about him the entire time. Back [[spoiler: when Lagann no longer works for Simon and resulting in Simon finally voicing his loss of direction and helplessness, he attempts to go and comfort Simon]], albeit he's stopped by Yoko and his own doubt of what he can do. His belief in Simon never wavered, even when others including ''Yoko'' stopped believing in Simon. In fact, the main reason [[spoiler: he piloted Gurren (outside of prior experience) was out of concern for Simon's well-being, which if Simon's tone is any indication when he questioned this, meant that Simon was surprised that someone still cared for him beyond what he could contribute to the team. The only other people on board who still believed in him were the twins, Nia (though her case is unique) and possibly Leeron, but Rossieu was the one who was active in remaining in Simon's side.]] This makes his behavior during the first few episodes after the timeskip all the more painful seeing how things have gotten since.

* TookALevelInBadass: Compare the panicky ButtMonkey from the first half of the series to the unflappable world leader he becomes after the timeskip. He easily dodges a barrage of Kittan's punches, something pre-timeskip Rousseau wouldn't have a chance of doing.

* BreakTheHaughty: Seemingly invoked but ultimately subverted. [[spoiler:For several episodes after the timeskip he appears to be the controlling force of the government with Simon is a figurehead, and he criticizes Simon's recklessness while justifying that his extreme and morally-ambiguous actions are necessary, including sentencing Simon to death. However he was ''really'' broken up and unhappy about doing what he was doing and wasn't at all proud of it. He just did a good job of concealing it from others. Thus, Rossiu broke himself, but he wasn't as haughty as it seemed at first.]]

* BluntMetaphorsTrauma: Back in her younger days. Even cuter in the dub where she's voiced by Creator/HyndenWalch. There's still traces of it when she's older. She ended up saying no when Simon [[spoiler: asked her to marry him]] until Koyoh and Kiyal explained what he meant.

* BadassCape: during the assault on the Anti-Spiral she wears a cape, much like Simon does and like Kamina used to. [[MsFanservice Interestingly]], her cape is made in such a way as to showcase both [[SexyBacklessOutfit her back]] and her nice, ahem, posterior.
