** Often used by Syaoran in early episodes and chapters, who does not refer to Sakura by any actual name. This is ended however after her DisneyDeath in ''Sakura, Shaoran and The Elevator' leads him to yell her first name in anguish. Sakura having heard this, asks to continue this trend and to call "Shaoran-kun" by first name in return. Notably Sakura, much to her joy, is discovered to be the only person outside family that Syaoran refers to by first name (or allows the referral of his own). This trait is not present in the English dub, where both characters refer to each other by first name from the beginning.

Can cross HUGE distances (whole city blocks), [[RoofHopping roof hop with ease]], reach heights to ''the top of Tokyo tower'' and always lands soft from any height with exceptional accuracy. It can literally land on a dime. Syaoran too, for that matter: Even without magic, he seems to have springs for legs that allow him to reach impossible heights, even to the tops of trees and in a series of jumps gets to the top of a several storey high Ferris wheel with no problems.

* InformedAttribute: We're told multiple times during the anime that Tomoyo has an incredible voice; she gets several solos, Sakura swoons every time she sings, and her voice is the key to capturing at least one Clow Card. Despite that, her voice... doesn't really seem to be all that special. Unless that's intentional, and the point is that her voice is amazing ''for an elementary school student.'' Her voice sounds better in the Hebrew dub.



* InnocentlyInsensitive: Sakura rarely has a cruel bone in her body, but is ridiculously naive and terrible at reading emotions. She obliviously exasperates Syaoran's crush on her, and she is occasionally rather inconsiderate toward Kero (though Kero himself dishes this back at times as well). She also never has the foggiest clue that Tomoyo is in love with her, let alone the fact that by cheering Sakura and Syaoran on, Tomoyo is making a huge sacrifice for her sake.
* InstantExpert: Anyone who uses the Sword Card instantly gets ImplausibleFencingPowers. Many of the other cards also give this.
* InTheNameOfTheMoon: Said ''after'' capturing the card, not before.

The anime dials this back by turning Rika's romance into a one-sided crush and by only having Touya and Mizuki seen admitting their feelings, while the manga goes into enough detail to show they had a relationship of some length.

* VocalDissonance: Sakura in the Nelvana English dub. Many were not expecting such a low-pitched voice from a 10-year-old anime girl. Ironically, she actually was voiced by an 11-year-old girl.

** The original manga has absolutely ''zero'' problem with TeacherStudentRomance, and especially with elementary school children, be it Sakura's parents ([[{{Ephebophile}} 25 and 16 at marriage]], and Nadeshiko pregnant at 17), Sakura's older brother Touya and his middle school teacher Mizuki (who left him to go study in England... and eventually enter a relationship with the 11-year-old Eriol), or 11-year-old Rika and her teacher Mr. Terada. The anime dials this back by turning Rika's romance into a one-sided crush and by only having Touya and Mizuki seen admitting their feelings, while the manga goes into enough detail to show they had a relationship of some length.

** Many of the characters are made to respond emotionally to magical power, especially that owned by other people, ''i.e.'' [[EmotionControl magic forcefully alters their feelings into]] either [[LoveIsInTheAir drawing them together]] or [[HatePlague making them dislike each other]], which in the former case the manga treats as legitimate romance. Sakura, Syaoran, Kero-chan, Touya, and Mizuki-sensei are all indicated to have this condition (e.g. Syaoran is attracted to Yukito because they both have moon-based magic, but his mutual antagonism with Kero and his dislike of Mizuki-sensei happen because the latter two have sun magic -- Mizuki-sensei goes so far as to indicate Syaoran ''can't'' like her). Of all the affected characters, only Syaoran manages to get over his magical magnetization. The anime downplays this ''very much''.
