Added DiffLines:

* CharacterDevelopment: During Week 1 (as reinforced by flashbacks to him and Rhyme), he has no capability to think things through. By the time of Week 3... well, he ''still'' has no capability to think things through, but he ''realizes'' this and defers to Neku's judgement. [[PlayedForLaughs Also]], he goes from "the walls don't break" to "I'ma break this wall", although that might have something to do with his acquisition of keypins.

* VillainousFriendship: Despite their conflicting work ethics, they are both willing to cede a good point made by the other and are almost always seen hanging out together. They're also very much in sync with each other during battle.

Added DiffLines:

* GameplayAndStoryIntegration: Like the heroes, Kariya and Uzuki share a light puck when they're fighting together; this lets them put up a fight against Taboo Noise.

Added DiffLines:

* AdvertisedExtra: Downplayed. [[spoiler:She's the only one of the main group who isn't a playable partner, and in fact gets killed off quite early on, but her fate drives a lot of the story and she ultimately becomes a Player Pin.]]

Added DiffLines:

* NotSoDifferent: He concludes this about himself and [[spoiler:Shiki after learning her secret.]] This realisation is what spurs his CharacterDevelopment.


Added DiffLines:

* AntiVillain: Certainly Kariya, who's laid back, on [[FriendlyEnemy friendly terms]] with the heroes, and even helps them out on occasion. [[spoiler:When Neku prepares to erase Kariya and Uzuki after their possession, Beat stops him on the grounds that neither of them seem like fundamentally bad people.]]


Added DiffLines:

* CardCarryingVillain: Kariya is very aware of the role he's meant to play in the Reaper's Game. See the quote under PunchClockVillain.


Added DiffLines:

* EvenEvilHasStandards: They're both appalled when [[spoiler:Konishi gives them the false Rhyme pin.]] Kariya in particular is disgusted and gives Neku and Beat a sincere apology for not having seen through the deception himself, then gives them his own Reaper pin in spite of the punishment this might incur. Even Uzuki says sorry for having screwed with them the previous day, since it was all for nothing.


Added DiffLines:

* FriendlyEnemy: Kariya, especially during Beat's rough week. Beat actually worries that Kariya's helpfulness might cause his erasure, as the higher ups do not tolerate treason.
* GoGetterGirl: Uzuki is relentlessly ambitious and hungers to rise through the Reapers' ranks.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Jerkass}}: Uzuki towards the players; she's a bit of a suck-up towards her superiors and is only genuinely friendly with Kariya. She lampshades this herself.
-->'''Uzuki:''' I'm not shooting for any Miss Nice awards!


Added DiffLines:

* NiceGuy: Kariya.


Added DiffLines:

* OppositesAttract: Despite their opposite personalities, they're very close friends with a bit of ShipTease. The Noise Report describes them as operating like "two halves of a whole".


Added DiffLines:

* RecurringBoss: They're fought several times, both singularly and as a duo.


Added DiffLines:

* SaveTheVillain: Neku and Joshua can step in to save Kariya and Uzuki from a losing battle again errant Noise. The former is grateful and gives the heroes his sincerest thanks; the latter, well, ''[[UngratefulBitch does not]]''. [[spoiler:After their final defeat towards the end of the game, Neku and Beat make the decision to spare them both.]]


Added DiffLines:

* VillainsOutShopping: They can be seen out in Shibuya playing Ten Pin Slammer together on a slow day.
* VillainousFriendship: Despite their conflicting work ethics, they are both willing to cede a good point made by the other and are almost always seen hanging out together. They're also very much in sync with each other during battle.


Added DiffLines:

* BoobsOfSteel: Inverted, she's the bustiest character in the game but more of a MasterOfIllusion than a fighter. [[spoiler:She never fights in her base form and goes OneWingedAngel for her boss battle.]]

* BadassAdorable: Multiple shopkeepers will comment on how cute he looks as their FSG meter increases and his multiple {{When He Smiles}} moments and development into a genuinely good person firmly cements him as one. As for the {{Badass}} part, he's able to use a {{Superpower Lottery}} worth of pins, takes on multiple Reapers and Noises as the story progresses, takes on THREE Game Masters throughout the game and win, and survives the Reaper's Game not once, but THREE times.
