* AlternateSelf: To [[spoiler:Sayo Yasuda]].
* 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.

* AlternateSelf: To [[spoiler:Sayo Yasuda]].
[[spoiler:Lion is a version of Sayo Yasuda in a world where they weren't thrown off the cliff by Natsuhi and grew up as the successor of the Ushiromiya family.]]

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]].

* {{Deconstruction}}: Imagine what type of personality [[LittleOldLadyInvestigates someone normally harmless]] would develop if everywhere they went, [[MysteryMagnet someone always]] [[AlwaysMurder kills another human being]]. It takes the [[ConvictionByContradiction flimsiest]] and occasionally [[ConvictionByCounterfactualClue technically wrong]] reasoning to cause the killer to break down into a MotiveRant and everyone praises her for it; so this person came to enjoy her life. She has never been wrong ever; even when actual facts didn't match up. The above description [[MurderSheWrote should]] [[Creator/AgathaChristie sound]] [[Manga/DetectiveConan very]], [[Series/{{Columbo}} very]], [[Literature/EncyclopediaBrown familiar]]. This is possibly a {{Flanderization}} or {{Satire}}, but given PoesLaw it is hard to tell.

* HandicappedBadass: [[spoiler:One of the most widely accepted theories about his duel against Bern is that he didn't use all of his twenty wedges, as ''Umineko'' clearly violates some and he refused to destroy the gameboard, as it would be the same as denying Lion a happy ending. This makes him unusually weak from a meta-perspective, as he doesn't have access to any reds the other detectives have, and can only use around 3 or 4 rules from his arsenal. This makes him understanding the truth behind Shkanon and the four games, something that even Erika couldn't do, that much more impressive. The heartwarming part comes from him putting that handicap on himself.]]

* EasilyForgiven: [[spoiler: Battler eulogizes her and ultimately convinces Bernkastel to bring her back in Episode 8, in spite of all of the absolutely horrible, unatoned-for deeds she committed upon Battler, Beatrice and the Ushiromiya family in episodes 5 and 6. Doesn't help that Erika then proceeds to screw with the game ''again'' once brought back.]]
