Added DiffLines:

* KryptoniteFactor: Due of the intensity of Zatch's spells, he usually passes out when performing them, making it hard to aim. Because of this Kiyo needs to be sure that Zatch is focused on his target before performing the spell. He normally does this by pointing at his target right before casting the spell.

* KnightOfCerebus: The first and one of the few mamodos to outright defeat Kiyo and Zatch, even taking their strongest spell while only suffering cosmetic damage. The only reason he doesn't burn their book is because their fight showed Bari a purpose for his life beyond mindless battles and he decides to have a rematch with them later. Likewise, their first real defeat subsequently leaves both Kiyo and Zatch in a [[HeroicBSOD slump]] for some time after.



* TheWorfBarrage: The first mamodo shrug off a direct hit from Baou Zakeruga. It provokes an understandable OhCrap moment from Kiyo since, up until now Baou Zakeruga has proven able to one-shot any mamodo they've come across and also drained Kiyo of all his heart energy, leaving them unable to cast anymore spells.

* YouCouldHaveUsedYourPowersForGood: Delivered to Bari by Gustav at the end of his battle with Zatch, pointing out that for all of Bari's natural power, all he does with it is going around picking fights with any mamodos that he comes across rather than seeking a higher goal.

[[spoiler: He ultimately doesn't become king but Gustav at the end notes that Bari had become a strong mamodo capable of striking even a king]].
