Still, he worries and frets, and then gets irritated at the whole mess he's in/created [[hottip:*: the two are rarely separated]]-- and then [[AndYourLittleDogToo something bad happens]].

** Played straight, because while his fellow knight captains and holy knights will describe him as a {{Manipulative Bastard}}, they also insist that he'll ''never'' abandon them.

* ArsonMurderAndLifesaving: Although he (usually) has good intentions, most of Sun's schemes include at least one questionable act. It helps that the main person to notice that he's breaking rules while resolving problems is Judge, who's willing to turn a blind eye on what his friend does.



* BatmanGambit: The plan to [[spoiler:overthrow the fat pig king]] relies on the king hiding and listening in on Sun and Judge's attempt to stop Roland, the king being an idiot when he hears Roland's motive, Blaze losing his temper, ''Roland '' losing his temper, and the royal and holy knights distracting one another from Roland. The number of people Sun had to predict the actions of really hammers home his ChessMaster skills.



* BrutalHonesty: Sun is furious [[spoiler: when Judge bluntly admits that he doesn't completely trust Sun's word about murdering the Death Knight. His honesty hurts, because Sun has a little habit of [[PayEvilUntoEvil paying evil unto evil]]; not that Sun's [[MoralEventHorizon ever gone that far before]], but it's more that Judge isn't too convinced that it's not a ''possibility'' for Sun.]] [[RageBreakingPoint Sun's glare could melt steel.]]

* [[EverythingsBetterWithSparkles Everything's Better With Sparkles]]: Os Rabbit Cat seemed to think this in the first volume and turned the trope [[UpToEleven up to twelve]]. Fans disagreed. Fortunately, the sparkles were toned down in the later volumes.

* HangingJudge: The Judgement Knight is intended to be one of these. The current Judgement Knight is ruthless in court, but can't actually stomach watching most of the punishments he orders, and first tried out for the position after hearing the previous Judgement Knight talk about showing mercy to those who were innocent.



* IAintGotTimeToBleed: Sun experiences a particularly amusing example when [[spoiler: the Death Knight slashes his back open]]. He spends the rest of the chapter getting annoyed with Leaf's anxious, distracting questions, which turn out to be fully justified when Sun topples over. The sight of his own pool of blood on the ground actually shocks Sun.

*NoHeroToHisValet: Sun's knights are still more than willing to follow him, but after having been ordered to gang up on so many people none of them seem swayed by the imaged of a perfect, pristine Sun Knight, and will often bad mouth him when they don't think he can hear.



* OneDialogueTwoConversations: Hell has one with his vice-captain upon returning to take his position. While Hell is confirming that the person he's talking to is, in fact, his vice captain, and then confesses that [[spoiler:he's not the real Hell Knight,]] his vice captain believes they're discussing how Hell shouldn't be allowed to reclaim his rank after having been gone so long.

* TroubleEntendre: Adair is very skilled at interpreting orders to have somebody beaten from what sounds like Sun praying for the target in question.



* UncannyValley: On first glance Pink looks like a cute little girl with a fondness for the color pink. On a closer look though, we notice that she looks a bit off, for example her skin is literally pink.
