* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: It´s never really mentioned how, but pretty much all the Exorcists are capable of superhuman feats of agility and strength. Allen´s daily morning routine consists of 300 1-handed handstands per hand, Socaro is able to leap hundreds of feet into the air and Leenalee can jump a few scores of feet into the air without her Innonence acitivated. Cross is capable of breaking a wooden washtub with his bear feet, and being able to lift and throw. All the Noah have superhuman strength too, though it is somewhat justified since they are able to use the superhuman Noah genes within all humans that unlock not only [[SuperpowerLottery certain Dark Matter-based powers]], but also incredibly strength, [[HealingFactor regeneration]] and agility.

Cross is capable of breaking a wooden washtub with his bear feet, and being able to lift lift, one-handed, and throw.throw Allen, who weighs 121-129 pounds, a few yards. And he casually holds Lenalee in the air, and perched on his arm, with one hand, who weights 106 pounds. All the Noah have superhuman strength too, though it is somewhat justified since they are able to use the superhuman Noah genes within all humans that unlock not only [[SuperpowerLottery certain Dark Matter-based powers]], but also incredibly strength, [[HealingFactor regeneration]] and agility.



* {{Flanderization}}: The anime did this with Cross' treatment of Allen. The anime has Cross asking Allen to bring him lions, selling him into slave labor, and at one point, pinning him to a wall to take his money. The scene reminiscent of a pimp and prostitute, including Allen asking Cross how long he's going to be forced to make money for him. Also, the latent scene happened while Cross was living in a palace with a Maharajah's widow. Thus, he wasn't in dire need of money at that point. Manga-wise, Allen said he gambled if they really needed money. None of the aforementioned scenes happened, or were hinted at present.
** There's also the scene where guards drag Allen away from Cross in HQ, and Cross waves him off, while smirking and humming. In the manga, the latter things with Cross didn't happen. All Cross does is watch, thinking it was quick.


Added DiffLines:

**[[spoiler: Recent chapter 222 reveals that cross is alive, but may be in a coma, as Road tells him to continue sleeping a bit longer. So his body is somewhere safe.]]

* ChivalrousPervert: General Cross who, despite being having many lovers, really does care for and form bonds with his women. Unlike TheCasanova, nothing has shown he mistreats or is dismissive of his lovers. In fact the manga shows he thinks fondly of women. Also, Allen says under Cross' bed, at mother's house, that it's filled with things he got from his lovers, pictures, accessories and silverware. So, Cross has keepsakes from his lovers that he puts away. Seems Cross may be into {{Polyamory}} if anything.

** Episode 27 has another, Cross is said to have taken money from a woman when her boyfriend came after him. He is shown being a lover to a rich widow, and Allen states Cross has a thing for rich women. In the character fanbook, written by Hoshino Katsura, Cross is stated as liking "good" women. So the anime makes Cross look like a gold-digger, who specifically looks to take women's money.

'''''D.Gray-man''''' is a manga (later adapted into an anime) about Allen Walker, a 15-year-old [[TheHunter Exorcist]] with a [[RedRightHand deformed left arm]] which can transform into a weapon called [[HolyHandGrenade Innocence]]. Allen fights against [[BigBad the Millennium Earl]] and his Akuma: living weapons created by trapping a human soul inside a mechanical body using Dark Matter, and having it wear the skin of the human that created it in the first place. The Millennium Earl wants to use these to [[OmnicidalManiac destroy humanity]], and Allen, who was cursed by an Akuma as a child, is caught in between. The Black Order, which he joins early in the series, is a religious organisation of Exorcists that seeks to stop the Earl and destroy his Akuma using Innocence. As the story progresses, a conspiracy unfolds involving the Noah Family - a group headed by the Earl - and the mysterious "14th" Noah.

By November 2014, Hoshino showed signs of having healed enough to draw again, and finally the manga resumed serialisation on July 17 2015. The catch? It is now a quarterly release instead of monthly, meaning only 4 chapters a year.

* GenderBender: Any akuma formed by one [[CaptainObvious (heterosexual)]] lover pining for the other (the Japanese akuma who helps the gang in Tokyo, for example). [[spoiler:Alma Karma was a woman -- Kanda's girlfriend, in fact -- in a previous life.]]

* GenreShift: The series started as a gothic-style action series with a somber tone. Then with the Edo arc, around volume 8-9, it adopted a more traditional battle shonen approach. Then when the series went monthly, action mostly took a backseat and the series got darker again. In the latest volumes (especially since the series moved to SQ Crown), it has pretty much become a horror fantasy story with a more contemplative look, that wouldn't be jarring in a seinen magazine.

** ADeathInTheLimelight: A number of these episodes also happen the episode before said character dies (or is PutOnABus.) Yeeger and Daisya are given this treatment. Suman also isn't seen again after his episode until the start of the Fallen One arc.

* IDidWhatIHadToDo: He seems to want to protect humanity, and General Yeager praises his will to destroy Akuma. However, he has made some sacrifices in the journey. Later in the manga, it's shown he apparently regards it as DirtyBusiness. During events of chapter 167, when facing up to Allen's fate, he outright asks himself "Do you always have to sacrifice something to protect something else?" Seems to show Cross has done that alot, and he does not find any enjoyment in it. It's just that the sacrifices he makes are for a greater purpose.
