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

to:
* 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.

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

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

Added DiffLines:
* JapaneseDelinquents: Manabe seems to qualify as one of these. He skips classes, gets into fights, and has light hair (which a teacher presumed was dyed, to his dismay).

* EasilyForgiven: [[spoiler: Mariko]].
to:
* EasilyForgiven: [[spoiler: Mariko]].Mariko]] is very easily forgiven after trying to drown Tsubasa. This continues into the final arc, where [[spoiler:Midori]] is forgiven for all he's done because Arisa truly loves him.

* GenkiGirl: Mariko.
to:
* GenkiGirl: Mariko.Mariko is perky and very energetic.

* HairDecorations: Mariko.
to:
* HairDecorations: Mariko.Mariko wears ribbons in her hair, emphasizing her childishness.

** ''Finally'' averted in chapter 42 (the third to last chapter, mind you) when they show up at the summit meeting and mistakenly detain Tsubasa as a party-crasher and [[spoiler: arrest Midori, but don't frisk or cuff him which enables him to stab Tsubasa and run away. They (and Tsubasa wearing her Arisa-wig) trap him in Arisa's hospital room, but no one saw the other kid with the knife...]]
