* ScarsAreForever: Despite receiving healing magic regularly, he's been tortured for so long that his body is literally covered in scars. Even better, when O-Chul breaks out, he charges Redcloak with a metal bar ripped from his cage; Redcloak nails him in the forehead with a Disintegrate, [[XRaySparks showing off O-Chul's skeleton]]. Not only does O-Chul shake off the hit like it was nothing, if you look closely, his skull has a scar matching the one along his temple -- meaning the cut that made it went all the way to the bone. (The goblins may not be responsible for that one, since [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0403.html he has the scar even before the Battle of Azure City]].)

* ChekhovsGun: Daigo's last name is as of
strip 830 unfired.
* {{Chickification}}: {{Averted|Trope}} by Kazumi during her pregnancy. She tells three hostile ninjas that she didn't forget all her military training the moment she conceived, and she tells them this while kicking their ass. Her husband, on the other hand...
* ClusterFBomb: Kazumi is prone to these when she's in MamaBear mode.
* DefiedTrope: RedShirt. They defied this trope, and saved Daigo's life, by ''mentioning their names''. Daigo keeps his last name a secret in case of an emergency.
* FlirtingUnderFire: Their first lines of dialogue is a invitiation to coffee.
* FlowerInHerHair: Kazumi, for her marriage.
* FourthDateMarriage: The time between them meeting each other and their marriage is three-and-a-half months. Not to mention that Kazumi is already eight weeks pregnant during their wedding.
* GenreSavvy: Oddly enough, their savvy is that they don't believe in Elan's genre savvy. When
he tells them they're nameless mooks who are [[YouShallNotPass going to die in order to buy time for the heroes to escape]] Kazumi basically says 'that's ridiculous', says her name and then survives.
* HappilyMarried: Their marriage has withstood months on a refugee ship, ninja attacks, and relocation.
* LampshadeHanging: Their entire existence lampoons the concept of the RedShirt, and Belkar refers to them as such by name.
* LowerDeckEpisode: Such a sequence serves as their introduction.
* TheMaidenNameDebate: Neither
appears in.
* OnlySixFaces: There's really no way
to tell this Guy with have taken the other's name, but they use "Kato" for their new noble house.
* MamaBear: Kazumi
-->'''Kazumi:''' I'm
a Halberd from ''any other male soldier goddamn baby-making, life-taking MACHINE!
* MauveShirt: They seem to be elevating themselves to recurring characters, near the same level as Hinjo.
* NominalImportance: Deliberately invoked by Kazumi so she can save her own life and Daigo's in [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0472.html "I'll Hold Them Off"]].
* PlayingWithATrope: The purpose of their existences, as noted within DefiedTrope, LampshadeHanging, NominalImportance and SubvertedTrope.
* PregnantBadass: Kazumi's the one pictured on the trope's page.
-->'''Kazumi:''' You stupid pieces of [[SymbolSwearing @#!%]]. I was
in the Azurite army'', which has led to a fandom running gag army, too, and I didn't forget four years of training the moment my egg's perimeter was breached. You think just because I can't see my feet right now that any time I can't put one of them has a up your cowardly ninja asses? Please.
* PregnantHostage: The ninjas thought Kazumi would be this trope. They were wrong.
* RagsToRiches: Technically, as Hinjo promotes them to nobility at their wedding.
* {{Red Herring Shirt}}s: They're more
significant line, it's this guy.
than they appear at first.
* WeaponOfChoice: Go on -- guess.SubvertedTrope: RedShirt again, naturally, along with RedShirtArmy. Even before that, their class is fighter, a character class. The majority of the [=NPCs=] are warriors (which is basically the same class without the feats), making them EliteMook by default.
