* BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler:After her defeat and banishment to oblivion in [=EP6=], she comes back in [=EP8=].]]



* AFateWorseThanDeath: [[spoiler:She is banished to oblivion by Bernkastel after she loses to Beatrice in [=EP6=].]]

to:

* AFateWorseThanDeath: [[spoiler:She is banished to oblivion by Bernkastel after she loses to Beatrice in [=EP6=]. Bernkastel does let her come back in [=EP8=], though.]]


Added DiffLines:

* WellDoneDaughterGirl: She's desperate for her master's approval and tries her best to live up to her expectations. While it's somewhat justified because Erika knows very well that Bernkastel won't hesitate to throw her into oblivion if she fails her, she gets a little too happy in the rare occasions where she does get her master's praise.


Added DiffLines:

* NicePerson: Lion is very polite and well-adjusted.

* AndNowYouMustMarryMe: Complete with wedding dress. [[spoiler:Taking advantage that he's trapped in a Logic Error, Erika tries to force Battler to marry her so she can take control of the game board. Just when it seems she's going to get away with it, Beatrice blows the doors down.]]

* TheWatson: Will H. Wright calls them this. Lion even turns it back on him at one point by calling him "Willard Holmes". Will and Lion's dynamic is actually quite similar to that of [[Literature/SherlockHolmes the original Holmes and Watson]]; though Lion is out of the loop at first in regards to Bernkastel's game and has to have some things explained by Will, he/she is still intelligent, more down-to-earth and has better social skills while Will is also intelligent but has some notable quirks.

* ForWantOfANail: As previously stated, Lion is Natsuhi's first child if [[spoiler:s/he wasn't thrown off the cliff by her]]. Bernkastel actually states that the probability of that was [[MillionToOneChance 1/2578917]].

* JapanesePronouns: Lion uses the gender-neutral pronoun "watashi", which is what s/he is expected to use as the successor to the headship.[[note]]During a flashback in [=EP3=], Krauss refers to himself as "watashi" to rub in Eva's face how he'll be the next head and not her, which she immediately lampshades.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* JerkassHasAPoint: In her character quote above, where she mocks the story's ArcWords ("Without love, it cannot be seen"), and says that love can make people see things that don't exist. [[spoiler:Later on, the story delves into the more negative aspects of ThePowerOfLove, such as Kinzo deluding himself into believing his daughter Beatrice Ushiromiya was the reincarnation of her mother and [[ParentalIncest the tragic results]].]]

A piece of [[AmbiguousGender unclear gender]] first seen in [=EP7=]. Lion comes from a world where they arw first in line for the headship of the Ushiromiya family, Krauss and Natsuhi's first child and Jessica's older sibling. Lion teams up with Willard H. Wright in his investigation of "Beatrice's murder". Lion also has a rather odd habit of giving people's butts a nasty pinch whenever they're being rude or perverted.

* AmbiguousGender: Very intentionally; the narration refers to him/her [[GenderNeutralWriting very gender-neutrally]], s/he has an androgynous appearance, and none of the other characters give any indication what his/her gender actually is. Even Will doesn't know what it is, and it's one of the mysteries that he's supposed to solve. When he actually asks Lion, he doesn't get a straight answer. Bernkastel later states that she hid Lion's gender on purpose. If the strong implications the manga gives with [[spoiler:Sayo Yasuda]] are anything to go by, [[spoiler:we can be pretty sure Lion is male]].
* BerserkButton: While the whole "pinching people's butts for being rude" thing is mainly for mild annoyances, what ''really'' seems to make Lion angry is insulting or making fun of Natsuhi. Lion continues to be protective of her even after finding out that [[spoiler:in almost every other world, Natsuhi is responsible for Lion's suffering as Sayo Yasuda by rejecting him/her]].
* BreakTheCutie: [[spoiler:Though luckily Will is there to provide encouragement, and Lion ultimately survives Bernkastel's attempts at breaking him/her to become a stronger person.]]

* TemporalParadox: The gameboard of Episode 7 is made of contradictory fragments mashed together; as a result, not only is Lion put in the same room as [[spoiler:his/her [[AlternateSelf alternate selves]] Shannon and Kanon]], his/her family's memories contradict themselves (like the seat arrangement in the dining hall not including him/her). All this serves as a hint for Will.
* WalkingSpoiler: It's difficult to talk about Lion without revealing [[spoiler:his/her connection to Sayo Yasuda and the real Beatrices]].
* TheWatson: Will H. Wright calls him/her this. Lion even turns it back on him at one point by calling him "Willard Holmes". Will and Lion's dynamic is actually quite similar to that of [[Literature/SherlockHolmes the original Holmes and Watson]]; though Lion is out of the loop at first in regards to Bernkastel's game and has to have some things explained by Will, he/she is still intelligent, more down-to-earth and has better social skills while Will is also intelligent but has some notable quirks.
