** Seems to be a theme: Worst example is [[spoiler: Midori and his twin's]] mother, who actually abandons [[spoiler: them, one of them to death,]] in a tiny, filthy, freezing apartment without food and heat. She did name [[spoiler: Midori]] as her insurance beneficiary but that just makes the hatred worse.

** Though since he also has help from [[spoiler: Kuudo]] at one point, this could count as a BigBadDuumvirate.

* YourCheatingHeart: Averted. [[spoiler: Though to Tsubasa it seems that this trope may be in effect when Midori kisses her, he only did that to drug her. He later calls her out kissing her sister's boyfriend.]]

* FreudianExcuse: [[spoiler: Midori and his twin brother Akari were neglected and abandoned by their mother to the point that Akari fell ill. When Midori tried to get help for his ailing brother, he was ignored and rejected by everyone he turned to, causing him to see everyone as a monster. His brother died soon after. This, combined with a bit of LoveMakesYouCrazy, is what motivates his despicable actions; he wants revenge, but he also wants to help the one person whom he felt something besides hatred for, Arisa.]]
**[[spoiler: Kuudo could also count, as it was his parents' abandonment of him due to his heart condition that caused him to resent the world. Ultimately, he also wanted to help Arisa, who was the only person that treated him with kindness.]]



* ReplacementGoldfish: [[spoiler: Midori's attitude toward Arisa has shades of this. He sees her as a replacement for Akari.]]

Added DiffLines:

* NeverMyFault: When the students of Class 2-B are confronted with the truth about [[spoiler: what Midori did, and what they were involved with,]] they immediately justify their actions as because of the King's manipulation, despite the fact that all of them were willing to sit by while their classmates were abused and people were hurt. That's ignoring the fact that it was their idolizing the King which gave [[spoiler: Midori]] his power in the first place. Manabe rightly calls them out on this, but it doesn't seem to do much in the end.

* EvilCripple: Shizuka has this effect. Then again, given her backstory, she can easily be read as a WheelchairWoobie.

** When Kudou is first introduced, he brings "Arisa" to the roof with him and nearly throws himself off. Tsubasa talks him out of it.
