* GenerationXerox: In the [=EP8=] manga, it's revealed that [[spoiler:as a little girl she had a stuffed rabbit named Uutan that she loved very much, rather like Maria with Sakutarou. Unfortunately, similarly to Sakutaro, Rosa's rabbit was torn apart by her older siblings]]. When they're hiding in her old room during the game of hide-and-seek, [[spoiler:Rosa even makes the badly-repaired Uutan talk to Maria like Maria makes Sakutarou "talk" to other people]].
** A maybe less obvious example, the age difference between Rudolf and Rosa is the same as between Battler and Ange (12 years).

* LonelyDollGirl: According to the [=EP8=] manga, much like Maria with Sakutarou, Rosa had a stuffed rabbit when she was a child and she considered it her best friend because she didn't have any real friends. [[spoiler:Rosa then feels horrible for what she did to Sakutarou when she should have known very well how Maria felt.]]

* SupportingProtagonist: Battler is the main view point character and essentially the hero of the fantasy side of the story. However, when you look at it with hindsight, ''Umineko'' is actually about [[spoiler:Sayo Yasuda, his/her complicated issues and the conflict between his/her personas]].

After a brief struggle with herself, Beatrice tells him it was a lie and mocks him for falling into her trap. The truth behind her actions turn put to be far more complicated, though.]]

* WeWantOurJerkBack: His attitude towards In [=EP5=], when [[spoiler:Beatrice ends in a catatonic state where she can't move or speak anymore]], Battler finds himself missing her acting like the sadistic, trolling witch with that annoying laugh. Also in [=EP6=], he gets annoyed to see Chick Beatrice being all nice unlike the cruel original Beatrice.



* BigBrotherBully: Growing up, Krauss constantly made fun of his younger siblings and looked down on them as a way to deal with his own inferiority complex.



* GeniusDitz: While certaily not a genius, he is is frequently shown to be very perceptive. This becomes apparent as early as Episode 2, when he is able to notice small changes in Shannon's mood and behavior. Apparently, he can also tell when Natsuhi is experiencing headaches [[http://i23.mangareader.net/umineko-no-naku-koro-ni-chiru-episode-5-end-of-the-golden-witch/9/umineko-no-naku-koro-ni-chiru-episode-5-end-of-the-golden-witch-2703991.jpg by the way she wrinkles her forehead.]]

* WellDoneSonGuy: Gotta feel sorry for the poor idiot to some extent. Although he was the heir apparent, Kinzo never really had any faith in him ([[HorribleJudgeOfCharacter for good reason]]) to begin with, and so he was struggling for Kinzo's approval just like Eva. The only difference is that Eva actually deserved it.

* ConvictedByPublicOpinion: [[spoiler:In the real world, Eva was never found guilty of the Rokkenjima incident due to the lack of evidence. The media, however, would never stop to incriminate her and create conspiracy theories with her as the culprit.]]


Added DiffLines:

* ThenLetMeBeEvil: [[spoiler:In the real world, after suffering from the constant accusations and harassment from the press and society that made her out as the culprit of the Rokkenjima massacre and created a bad image of her and her family, Eva finally broke down and started to become the monster everyone expected her to be.]]

* StockShonenHero: A deconstruction of the trope, since many of the traits of the character type actually prove to be keeping Battler from reaching his goal. He's a HotBlooded {{Determinator}} who absolutely refuses to acknowledge witches, but he's also very naive and trustful, always wanting to think the best of everyone and so constantly winds up jumping up in the middle of fights to explain a scenario in which person X might not be the culprit. Battler's hot blooded attitude also blinds him. He's much too focused on defeating Beatrice out of some vague sense of justice, never even questioning why she's playing this game with him in the first place despite all the clues she leaves for him.

* BigSisterInstinct: Just as Kanon is protective of her, Shannon is very protective of him and encourages him to get into a relationship with Jessica and break out of his shell. That's why she's disgusted with Beatrice in the second arc for using his body when he's already dead to kill more people. Also she prefers to die with Kanon than have him suffer a gruesome death in [=EP3=].
** [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] in [=EP6=] where she outright tells Kanon that as long as he doesn't get in the way of her love for George, he'll be fine. [[spoiler: Cue to the end of the arc where they have a DuelToTheDeath and she kills Kanon because his love for Jessica wasn't strong enough. Of course, in the end, that was all a representation of Sayo Yasuda's internal struggle - Sayo believes that in order to be with George, his/her "ugly" Kanon self which hides all of his/her bitterness and pessimism must "die" since George wants a shy, docile and optimistic wife, not a bitter, pessimistic Sayo.]]

to:

[[spoiler:It was because of Rudolf's remarriage to Kyrie that Battler left the family and subsequently made Shannon grew desperate for his return and obsess over his promise. Years later, by begging Battler to return to the Ushiromiya family at the worst possible time for Shannon, Sayo Yasuda finally went off the deep end and planned the murders.]]

* InterClassRomance: With George. The main obstacle to George and Shannon's romance was the fact that she is a servant to the Ushiromiya family, while he is a member of that very wealthy family.
