* BerserkButton: His human partner calls him Danny ''Boy'', which drives him up the wall.

* NoSympathy: Jed informs Ted that if he can't find food or a place to stay, he's on his own. Then again, Ted makes an offhand mention of a tab he has running from Jed, suggesting Jed doesn't just let him go hungry either.
* RealityEnsues: The standard procedure when he and Jed arrive in a town is they split up to find food and lodgings with each paying their own way, working if they can't afford it. Ted is a small child and so can't find people willing to give him a job.




to:

* TakingTheBullet: In a roundabout way. He pointedly refuses to counter Gyaron's final spell (and so takes it head on) so he could save his own final spell to shatter the crystallized lightning used to torture Cherish.
* WalkingTheEarth: Jed because he's a wanderer, Ted because he's looking for Cherish.

* 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.




to:

* 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. It ultimately convinces Bari to spare Zatch and decide on a new goal of becoming the strongest king that has ever lived. [[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]].

%%* BadassAdorable

to:

%%* BadassAdorable* BadassAdorable: Most demons are, but Zatch is especially cute and, after gaining some experience, exceptionally badass.



* BoringInvincibleHero: A surprising subversion. He actually loses several times. First to [[spoiler:Zeon (before he met Kiyo)]], then to [[spoiler:Brago]], then [[spoiler:Bari]], and finally [[spoiler:Riou]]. And even then, the victories he does get aren't easy and Kiyo and he don't come out unscathed, heck a few time they're nearly beaten to the brink of death.
** They've also a number of ''technical'' losses, such as the fight against Shinichi and Eshros - Shinichi ends up with Kiyomaro's book after the clash of Guranbaison and Zakeru, but accepts his 'win' as his personal growth, casts aside Eshros, and returns their book to let them send him home.

%%* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Brago and Zeon's blue.



* InformedFlaw: His Jerkass / InsufferableGenius tendencies early on tend to be quite informed since his classmates were equally rude to him.
** And according to his father, once middle school came around and kids realised how much smarter than them Kiyo is, they shunned him.

* HeartIsAnAwesomePower:
** Once you figure out how to use these powers ''correctly'', they're useful. Kanchome's illusions are vital to a number of victories, and once he develops stronger techniques, is arguably the strongest demon in the series.
*** His 3 final spells allow him to trick a foe into cancelling their attacks, use their own attacks against them (and only that demon) and most powerful, his illusion world, where the pain is real (at least through mental truama.) During a training session, he managed to ''beat Zatch.''

* ThemeMusicPowerUp: When Kanchome sings "Iron Man Folgore," Parco rises up to fight once more despite his injuries.
** Subverted that after Kiyo casts Zakeru several times, he finds himself too numb to try and stand up again. The manga has him look fearful of Kanchome's singing and tries to crawl away.

* TheDreaded: He's pretty feared among the mamodo as a scary guy. They're right.
** He is also one of the Four Prodigies, four mamodo children so mighty that only adults could fight them. The others are the two dragon siblings and Zeon.

%%* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Zatch's red.



* AbusiveParents: Sherry's mother, at least. She was immensely overbearing and forced a load of work and practices upon a very young Sherry. Her father's whereabouts are unknown.
** Her mother was so abrasive and disapproving that Sherry once attempted to [[DriventoSuicide kill herself]].

* MoreThanMindControl: Zofis attempts to convince Sherry it's this. It ''almost'' works.
** In some ways it is. Unlike other people whose minds Zofis simply controlled, Zofis created [[SplitPersonality an entirely different personality]] out of the dark feelings in Koko's heart so that she would be his bookkeeper. Zofis restores her heart to normal after he gets beaten.

* HardWorkHardlyWorks: Part of what drives him. [[spoiler: He feels driven to surpass Zatch's Bao Zakeruga with his own power, born from his TrainingFromHell. If he can do so, he'll prove to himself that the suffering of said training was actually worth something.]]
** [[spoiler: Subverted as he is stronger than Zatch, but he loses because Zatch matches his and Dufort's suffering and the power coming from it with the care from his friends, empowering Bao.]]

** NotSoStoic: Was angered so much when Apollo asked how much hatred he was hiding to the point where he attempted to finish him and Rops off with a 'Giga' level spell, until Zeon convinced him otherwise.
*** He is also [[spoiler: moved to tears when he sees Zatch taking in his suffering to free him from it.]]

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: They disappear after their second apparition (which only happens in the anime). As they aren't present at the King Festival, it's clear that they were defeated and their book burned at some point, but how or by who remain unknown.
** Later, Hyde does an apparition at the end of the manga, assisting Zatch with his final attack on Clear Note and later at school in the mamodo world.

%%* TheBully

to:

%%* TheBully* TheBully: She lives to torment Zatch. And she's pretty good at it too, considering that he could pretty much turn her inside out if he really wanted to.

%%* JerkAss
* HiddenHeartOfGold: She will taunt Zatch, torture Zatch, and make his life a living hell...but the one and only time he's actually in danger, she helps him without hesitation, with great risk to herself.
* JerkAss: She doesn't really have a reason to bully Zatch as brutally as she does; she just seems to be sadistic. Although...



* GagBoobs

to:

* GagBoobsGagBoobs: The reason for her existence is for us all to have a laugh at her weirdly-shaped body and comically over-sized breasts.

* {{Badass}}: One of the 4 Mamodo Prodigies and [[spoiler: runner-up of the Kings Trial]].



* GravityMaster

to:

* GravityMasterGravityMaster: All of his spells are based on gravity.



** JerkWithAHeartOfGold after some CharacterDevelopment, but by the end of the series the jerk part has mostly faded. He desires to become a strict, but kind king.

* %%* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Zatch's red.



* {{Badass}}: One of a ''very'' select number to defeat Zatch straight-up. According to Keith, the strongest demons in the fight are the royalty (such as Zeno), the ones who have undergone the Elite Training (Brago), and the members of the mysterious Dragon Clan (Ashuron and Elzador); shortly thereafter, Bari reveals he's already beaten Elzador despite falling into none of those groups. He's actually the only demon in the fight to go completely undefeated throughout (even Brago lost round one against Clear) and the only reason he doesn't make it into the top ten is [[spoiler: ending up on the wrong end of a DiabolusExMachina]].



* {{Badass}}: As opposed to other Mamodo he doesn't use spells at all save for one that heals him to full health. However, he took out some thugs armed with machine gun using only his fists.
* BadassNormal: Compared to other Mamodo, at least. He fights just like a human. An incredibly strong, super-fast human.



* {{Badass}}: He is one of the "unbeatable" demon children along with Brago, Zeon, and his brother, and he shows it during his fight with Clear. He is arguably the strongest of them and inherited the legendary 'Red Scales', allowing to take blows from [[spoiler: even Clear Note.]]



* {{Badass}}: He might very well be the most powerful partner in the series. Even discounting his Answer Talker ability, he has a vast amount of heart power and can restore it back to full in a matter of minutes.

* NotSoDifferent: To Kiyo Takemine; [[{{LampShadedTrope}} drives the point home]] in the Anime when he mind scans the former commenting about his years of jealousy fueled neglect received both from his peers and his teachers in life, comparing it to his own harsh lab rat days in the asylum he'd been incarcerated in.
* PsychicPowers: In the Anime; Dufort had vast psychic powers for which he was poked and prodded within an undisclosed facility most of his life for.

* BerserkButton: In general, Zatch despises mamodos who gleefully abuse their power and influence on others, especially those looking to take advantage of being king.
