** In fact, it's often something of a surprise (and a [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming relief]]) when most of the characters focused on in a two-episode arc manage to survive intact. November 11 and his team especially make an impact for being the first [[AntiVillain "villains"]] to survive their featured story, especially after Hei had at least one clear shot at taking him out.

Added DiffLines:

* VillainsDyingGrace: [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] by Wei. After Hei beats his ass in the final build-up to the climax, Wei's last act is to use his blood splattered all over the wall--killing himself in the process, though he was already dying--to open a path for Hei. His dialogue also shows that, while he ''really really'' wanted to fight Hei, he knew he almost definitely wouldn't win, and probably expected to end up helping Hei all along.

Added DiffLines:

* ItNeverGetsAnyEasier: This is surprisingly revealed about Hei in episode 25, stating that each and every kill he does still haunts him, no matter how much he tries to hide it, and that he only started to be with his sister Bai.

* DefeatMeansFriendship: The group that greets Hei in his JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind includes several characters who opposed him in life, but who seem happy to support him from beyond. These include November 11, Wei, Amagiri (but see {{Retcon}} below), Maki, and Nick Hillman -- though Nick was very much a FriendlyEnemy to begin with.

* {{Retcon}}: During the climactic sequence, when a smattering of characters from all throughout the series meet with Hei in a vaguely afterlife-like realm, two faces stick out like sore thumbs on account of not being, well, dead. Granted, Mao's presence is somewhat excusable: he only resurfaces in season 2 thanks to a backup copy of his consciousness. So, one "version" of him ''did'' die, making his presence among the dead permissible if you squint. The other character, however, is a clear case of retconning: Amagiri, who seemed to have been burned to death, but reappears in the Gaiden, scarred and injured but [[DisneyDeath quite alive]]. We can only assume he ''was'' originally meant to have died, therefore allowing him to appear among the others in the season 1 finale; the Gaiden offers no explanation to HandWave this but in the scenes leading to the Gate being destroyed, Amagiri is shown to have been burned to death by [[PlayingWithFire Mai]]...but then Amber rewinds time and leaves Amagiri a clue to prevent his death. Which he does by shooting Mai before she can kill him.

* KillEmAll: Most of the principal and recurring characters die during the final four episodes, leaving Yin, Hei and Kirihara as some of the only survivors. Mao's body is still alive, but his human mind (which was stored on a database somewhere else) had the plug pulled, effectively killing him.
