* DespairGambit: [[spoiler:One-Eyed Othinus tries to do this to Touma]] by attempting to make him feel worthless and a villain, by replacing him with someone else, who although different in large ways, has no effect on history, and how a simple change of perspective, without the assumption that he is a hero, turns his actions into that of a villain.

* CrapsaccharineWorld: As stated above, Academy City keeps the rest of the world subdued with some pretty nasty tactics. Academy City itself seems like a haven of enlightenment and culture in comparison, but it's run by a fascistic regime that has no problem at all with creating an army of sentient clones to serve purely as cannon fodder for an emotionally damaged kid to kill over and over, the city is micromanaged by an all-knowing AI that may not have the best interests of the inhabitants at heart, and even ignoring all that if you're not an esper you're a nothing whose role in life is probably to serve as an innocent bystander who gets wasted when the espers start flinging lightning bolts or psychic projectiles at each other.

* HighlyVisibleNinja: [[AvertedTrope Averted]] by Hattori Hanzou and Sugitani, who look like a gang member and a [[BadassInANiceSuit man in a suit]] respectively, and [[JustifiedTrope justified]] with Kuruwa (she's obsessed with period dramas and the fictional image of ninja) and Oumi Shuri (she dresses in bright colors because her role is making the enemy focus on her so her teammates can attack from behind).


Added DiffLines:

* {{Ninja}}: Unlike what one would expect given [[FantasyKitchenSink the kind of series this is]], the ninjas in Index are a healthy dose of [[RealityEnsues reality]] and much [[LampshadeHanging lampshading]] of the usual ninja image in fiction, like when Shiage can't help but feel dissapointed when a kunoichi trying to kill him pulls out a gun, not the kind of weapon people usually expect a ninja to use. They are normal humans trained as spies and assassins, without any supernatural powers, that will use any weapon or tool at their dispossal to win. In fact, at least one ninja faction is trying to acquire supernatural powers so as to not be left behind in the world they live.

* ShadowArchetype: In NT Volume 14 we meet the ultimate ShadowArchetype of Touma, [[spoiler: Kamisato Kakeru. Both have special right hands and a crazy big UnwantedHarem and a love for helping those who ultimately need it. You would think the two would get along famously but they hate each other from the absolute start due to their very conflicting philosophies. Kamisato feels immense guilt over his harem's feelings towards him and expresses hatred at himself for how an average high school boy could be so beloved. He believes it's selfish to think they would actually feel this way under normal circumstances so Touma's attitude towards his own harem infuriates him. Since Touma has already gone his crisis of conscience thanks to Othinus, he quite easily rebuffs Kakeru's claims. In the end we have two boys of similar age, similar backstory, similar side characters and power but one has accepted his place in the world and the other has crippling self-doubt of his own.]]
