* {{Wimpification}}: Highly debatable, possibly justified, and even non-existent depending on whose route is taken. He starts off as a strong and confident fighter, with no need to rely on anyone else, but when he realizes how outclassed he is by many of the characters in the game, his assurance in his own ability starts to waver, although he still remains largely self-reliant no matter the love interest chosen. His role in sexual encounters is variable, and in quite a few of the game's sex scenes, he ''does'' take on traits reflective of the typical "uke", although the game does provide realistic explanations as to why, such as Akira's [[UnexpectedVirgin sexual inexperience]] or, for example, [[DespairEventHorizon guilt]] about [[spoiler: Keisuke's death]] in Shiki's route; in other sex scenes, however, he's a top himself or at least sexually-proactive, as seen in Rin's route, or in some of Shiki's endings.

* {{Wimpification}}: Debatable and may or may not be justified or even exist depending on which route is taken. He starts off as a strong and confident fighter, with no need to rely on anyone else. When he encounters certain sex scenes, he becomes like a typical uke. This is justified through [[DespairEventHorizon excessive guilt]] from [[spoiler: Keisuke's death]] in Shiki's route. Even in other routes, it may also be justified considering that he is new to experiencing anything sexual with someone else.
