Sliding Scale Of Antiheroes was redirected. Deleting wicks to it, Anti Hero Zero Context Examples and "Type X" junk
* AntiHero: Nocte goes from [[SlidingScaleOfAntiHeroes Type I to Type III]], sometimes overlapping with a [[SlidingScaleOfAntiVillains Type IV]] AntiVillain. Although her family would prefer her to be a straight up {{Villain|s}}.

Change quote.
->'''"I don't want to be evil!"''' --> - Nocte Yin (Book I, Chapter I)
to:
->'''"I don't want to be evil!"''' am not evil. [...] I am a Yin, but I am not evil, or vile or wretched. It is a shame that you automatically stereotype against us. Just because I'm a Yin, Lit Sek is an orc and Kardama is wearing a dark cloak, it does not mean we are evil. In fact, we are the very opposite at the moment."''' --> - Nocte Yin (Book I, 4, Chapter I)7)

* AntiHero: Nocte goes from [[SlidingScaleOfAntiHeroes Type I to Type III]], sometimes overlapping with a [[SlidingScaleOfAntiVillains Type IV]] AntiVillain. Although her family would prefer her to be a straight up {{Villain|s}}. * Badass ** BadassBookworm *** GeniusBruiser: Nocte has an average of 80 in exams and it’s heavily implied that the rest of her siblings are even better. ** BadassGrandpa: The Yin Elders are feared for a reason and Great-Grandfather Tao sure didn’t break a sweat when he [[spoiler:summoned that Xonese dragon.]] *** NeverMessWithGranny: Great-Grandmother Lian only needed a split second [[spoiler:to seal several of Nocte’s chakra points.]] ** CulturedBadass: Bloodstone has yet to properly fight, but you can bet he will have [[AGlassOfChianti that glass of wine]] with him when he does. * BewareTheNiceOnes: Nocte, especially back in the first book when no one expected it yet. ** Aman is a very sweet person, but she doesn’t have that mace because it looks pretty. ** Doctor is the kindest and most unassuming of his friends, but once you get to the fifth book… * BitchInSheepsClothing: [[spoiler:Savvy Deadwood.]] * CardCarryingVillain: ''All'' of them. Being a villain is a ''career''. ** VillainCred: Is important, considering villainy is a career. * ChildProdigy: Dire Yin. * CombatPragmatist: With as many fights as Nocte gets into, it was only a matter of time. ** GroinAttack * DarkIsEvil: Black is always in season for villains, and Evil Academy’s uniform deliberately invokes it. Although Nocte and [[TeenGenius Pyralis]], at least, count as DarkIsNotEvil. * DeadpanSnarker: Nocte again, most notably in the third book, which she narrates. * DeathGlare: A literal example. [[BlessedWithSuck It takes a while]] for Nocte [[CursedWithAwesome to appreciate the ability.]] * DepravedBisexual: Succubus Bloodstone has shades of this. Incubus isn’t quite as bad... probably. * EnemyMine: Happens several times, most successfully at the end of the first book. * EnfantTerrible: Naturally, all villain children. You don’t want to meet Occult in a dark alley. * EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: It’s what makes the Hęi and the First Family of the Yin special. * EvenEvilHasStandards: Paine is a perfect, flawless villain, so cheating is beneath him. * EvilOldFolks: The Yin Elders. * FireForgedFriends: How Nocte acquired about half her friends and not-quite-enemies. * FunctionalMagic: Just about every type is used by ''someone''. * TheGrimReaper: There are enough that they have a High and a Low Council. They uniformly wear {{Black Cloak}}s and have {{Sinister Scythe}}s, but Death himself is the only skeletal one. ** DontFearTheReaper: [[spoiler:Farhat of the Low Council becomes one of Nocte’s closest friends and in the fifth book, she also offers Death her friendship.]] * HeroicBSOD: Nocte during the second book and again during the third. * HotWitch: Especially Malise, Ebony and Melantha Paine. * KatanasAreJustBetter: Notably, the only person who has used one yet is Paine. * KrakenAndLeviathan: A leviathan shows up in the fourth book [[spoiler:and becomes Nocte’s bond creature.]] * LadyOfWar: Malise, Ebony, Melantha, Xiâng Huâ and some others. * LifeEnergy: Control over both LifeEnergy and “Death Energy” is necessary for a resurrection. * LightIsGood: Hero Academy even has a white uniform. Funnily enough, [[spoiler:the Yang Clan]] counts more as LightIsNotGood, despite the name. * LightningBruiser: Several major characters, particularly Powerhouses. * LovableTraitor: One of Noir’s major motivations at any given time is how much something will entertain him. [[FriendlyEnemy Apparently, Nocte dying wouldn’t be much fun]], though abusing her is fine. * MamaBear and PapaWolf: Don’t mess with Malise and Umbra’s children. * MasterSwordsman: [[OurElvesAreBetter Shea.]] * {{Necromancer}}: Both Great-Aunt Nox and Nocte (who’s a sympathetic example). * NotEvilJustMisunderstood: Nocte has this a lot, thanks to her family. * OneManArmy: After her training in the beginning of the fourth book, Nocte has become this. Several other characters also count, though some have yet to properly show it. * OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: [[spoiler:The Noir]] appear to be a clan of werewolves with SuperToughness. * OurVampiresAreDifferent: They’re mostly the traditional variant, but Blackthorn is always called a ''living'' vampire. This has yet to be explained. * SadistTeacher: Several of Evil Academy’s teachers, unsurprisingly, but especially Aadi. * SelkiesAndWereseals: [[spoiler:The Freesia]] are selkies, although they have only appeared in human form until now. * SpecsOfAwesome: Umbra, Paine and eventually Nocte. * TheStoic: Paine, Umbra, Dire, Ohanzee and Morven. Self-control is a very valuable ability, considering their social standing and work. ** StoicSpectacles: The first two. ** NotSoStoic: Dire has some moments. * ThemeNaming: The Hero Powerhouses (Prosperitas, Freesia, Lucent and Yang) count and villains have often both ObviouslyEvil first and last names (Necrosis Paine, anyone?). Often crosses over with NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast. * TookALevelInBadass: Pretty much everyone, but Nocte’s training in the fourth book is most noticeable. * UnwittingPawn: In the second book, [[spoiler:Nocte, ''to her own family'' no less!]] * VillainousFriendship: Paine and Noir [[spoiler:Type I since the fourth book.]] * VillainsOutShopping: Well, they can’t plot nefarious schemes all the time. * WarriorMonk ** BareFistedMonk: Lit Sek and everyone else in the Fog Mountain Sect. * WildCard: It’s sometimes impossible to tell whether Noir is on Nocte’s side or not, not to mention that he will ally himself with just about anyone. * {{Wuxia}}: Many elements are drawn from this. It especially applies to the four great martial-art sects.
