%% * WorldOfBadassWorldOfBadass: The cast of Claymore is composed either of, well, Claymores, superhuman warriors who live only to hunt down the monsters known as Yoma, Awakened beings, former Claymores who have [[SuperPowerMeltdown gone beyond their limits]] and have [[SuperPoweredEvilSide become monsters themselves]] while retaining some intelligence, and a few common Humans. And even in this world where they're horribly outmatched by almost everything Humans do not shy from attempting heroic acts, like Rabona's soldiers seriously trying to fight off ''Awakened beings'' or [[spoiler:Raki being able to not only kill Yomas post TimeSkip but even play a crucial role in the final battle against Priscilla]].
** For more villainous examples, even the shadowy but still Human members of the [[NebulousEvilOrganisation Organization]] always manage to keep a cool head when confronted by their own creations, [[spoiler:like Limt/Rimuto shortly before he was killed by Miria for his crimes. In Dae's case he kept nonchalantly chatting with Priscilla even as she was ''eating his own guts''!]]

* [[spoiler:PuppeteerParasite]]: [[spoiler: This is what the Youma REALLY are. They're artificially created parasitic organisms born from mixing an "awakened" Asarakam with a regular Asarakam. This parasite creates a craving for human intestines in the host and thanks to over-working their bodies with their energies (which they use to activate their various Youma powers), has to change hosts frequently. This creates the idea that the Youma devour people and absorb their personalities. In truth, its just the parasite jumping hosts. The parasite is never seen, but only referred to as a "wriggling thing" that doesn't decay. Since this parasite hides in the brain, the decapitation technique used by the Claymores to kill the Youma doesn't stop the parasites--it just forces them to move to a new host.]]

* {{Badass}}: Way too many of them, but Clare is worthy of special note since she's a complete badass from the very beginning... and then you realize she's ranked as ''the weakest warrior in the entire organization'', and no, she was ''not'' an AlmightyJanitor back then. Claymores in general are badasses. Many of them have esoteric abilities that enhance their fighting skills (healing, reflexes, extra sensory perception), but at the end of the day, their primary method of killing their targets is hitting them with their swords.

Played straight with being ostriches and reindeer though, since villagers are willing to completely ignore and even expel kids who have become orphaned because of yoma attacks in order to protect their own asses, and also the fact that they shun the Claymores who are the only ones capable of detecting and fighting yoma.
