* HotterAndSexier[=/=]{{Stripperiffic}}: DefiedTrope, among others. Specifically, only Sui had rather revealing clothes, but she's a pure brawler.

A fun series that was tragically CutShort after laying down the foundations of its main arc plot. What made its cancellation so heartbreaking was the amount of foreshadowing set up and LeftHanging. The {{mangaka}} would go on to write ''{{Nisekoi}}''.

* BloodKnight: Sui just [[AxeCrazy loooooves to fight]], is obsessed with finding the strongest, and looks and acts like a cross between [[FinalFantasyVII Tifa]] and [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Kenpachi]]. Except for [[spoiler:when she's completely owned by Fallan -- then she bursts out crying. * sniff* "I'm gwonna kill him! Boo hoo!"]]. "It's like she's [[CryCute really cute]] but scary at the same time!"

changed names to official spelling (Kili and El)
It turns out that this boy, Kiri, is the one her organization have been looking for -- a truly immune person from which they can derive a cure. Until they reach the headquarters, though, she has to keep a hold of his hand ''no matter what''. Standing in the way of this is their inherent embarrassment at having to do everything together (showering, sleeping, going to the toilet, eating). Oh, and the order of assassins that is targeting Sisters...

* TheAce: Kiri Luchile displays some of the CommonMarySueTraits (superlative art skills and accompanying dexterity, red eyes, [[TheGift unique and mysterious powers]]) and seems to be a MartyStu-in-training, but he also displays some humanising character flaws -- most notably [[spoiler:DoggedNiceGuy]].

* AllYourPowersCombined: Kiri's "Flare" power increases the strength of all the people he's in contact with, by the ''number'' of people he's in contact with. 2 people = 2 people with double strength, 10 people = 10 with 10 times the strength and so on. The [[GameBreaker 'something for nothing']] nature of this is {{Lampshaded}} later on. * AnimeHair: Kiri.

** When [[EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette dark-haired]], [[BareYourMidriff midriff-baring]] [[ActionGirl Sui]] appears on the scene, shy Ellie immediately assumes she must be Kiri's girlfriend--and Kiri and Sui instantly [[HeroicBSOD flinch]] and [[WithFriendsLikeThese burst out laughing]], respectively. Turns out they've ''already'' given the dating thing a try ([[ReallyGetsAround or three]]) and it was a disaster, killing the possibility of a love triangle deader than dead from the get-go.

She proceeds to [[spoiler:make the most pitifully awkward confession ever, mostly along the lines of ''I know you probably don't know what I'm talking about, but if we ever, you know, then you know, I might... yeah.'']] Good job, sweetie. ** And Kiri's reaction is to stand there, trying to play it clueless while [[spoiler:dying of frustration. Apparently he's been in love with her literally [[LoveAtFirstSight since he first laid eyes on her]], but is determined to keep quiet about it to defray the inevitable potential for awkwardness.]]

* ChainsOfLove: Part of the premise. In a twist, there's nothing physical keeping them together, just a magical problem counteracted by Kiri. If Kiri really wanted to, he could leave at any time, but then Elraine would die and Kiri's just too nice to let that happen.

**** Well, Fallan doesn't need to keep his skin accessible to Kiri at all times. The point was that, if they were separated in a fight, Kiri needed to be able to get in contact with El again ASAP, without wasting time flailing to find a bare patch. * HugeGuyTinyGirl: Kiri's mother -- shorter than he is. Kiri's father -- has to duck under ceiling beams.

** Kiri can stop seizures though, and [[spoiler:since he was holding Heine's hand while El healed, the combination might have been able to do what El couldn't have done alone. Also, his Flare power could have amplified Elraine's, allowing her to save Heine.]]

* MartyrdomCulture: The Sisters, to the point where it freaks Kiri out miserably at times. His impassioned rants about this to Elraine have started to draw her back to a more healthy worldview, thank goodness. * MeetCute: Kiri's mother and father, as shown in a side comic; as sweet young things attempting to enroll at a school for tailors, they over- and under-estimated what a "normal" garment size should be and ended up constructing sample garments too big and small to fit anyone but each other. "Excuse me, but would you like this...?" * MartialArtsAndCrafts: The titular Double Art is a martial arts style made exclusively for El and Kiri, but the series ends before the style could progress past the two [[spoiler:just dancing.]]

* ReallyGetsAround: Though she didn't get up to anything sexual, Sui has dated every guy in her town. [[BloodKnight Just so she could fight them.]] She's dated (and dumped) Kiri three times, which is a sore spot for him. ** According to an official {{omake}}, she did this within the span of three consecutive days, traumatizing poor Kiri's heart to the point where he "swore off love" at the age of fourteen. ** Complete with a hilarious gender inversion of the stereotypical jilted-woman sulk, as Kiri works out his sorrows at the sewing machine.

* ShoutOut: Not confirmed or anything, but Kiri has a bust of what ''looks'' like Andre the Giant in the role of [[Film/ThePrincessBride Fezzik]]. [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/double_arts/v01/c003/5.html Judge for yourselves, panel 1.]]

Dandere is a fanspeak term, not a trope. So it shouldn't have have any wicks.
* {{Dandere}}: Fallan collects the little flags restaurants put on sandwiches and will blather on about them if you remark upon this.
