* ChastityCouple: The farthest Noriko and Izark have gone (onscreen at least) is kissing, of which the number of times you can count on one hand, and despite the various amounts of alone time they have had.

to:

* ChasteHero: Izark, who, as far as we can see, has no interest in anyone [[SingleTargetSexuality other than Noriko]].
* ChastityCouple: The farthest Noriko and Izark have gone (onscreen at least) is kissing, of which the number of times you can count on one hand, and despite the various amounts of alone time they have had. Could be justified with the fact that they were basically on the run for 90% of the series. Having Noriko pregnant could cause a lot of complications. Izark is also evidently new to the whole relationship thing.



* DamselOutOfDistress: Noriko may lack physical prowess due to being an OrdinaryHighschoolStudent and a non-athletic one at that, but she's a quick thinker, savvy enough to know that she has to learn the language of the world she was thrown in, and when [[DistressedDamsel in distress]], proceeds to try her best to escape, or at least make everyone feel she's [[PluckyGirl still willing to fight her way out]].

At least twice she escaped on her own out of really dangerous situations.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Izark. Being told from birth that you're going to be TheAntichrist and treated accordingly by your own family surely counts. Rachef had a pretty troubled youth as well.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Izark, who's prophesied to be the [[TheAntichrist Darkness]], is actually a pretty nice guy [[spoiler: as long as he doesn't transform into [[TheBerserker the Sky Demon]]. He ultimately learns to control that power, summon it without losing his mind, and augment it with the power of Light.]]
* DefeatMeansFriendship: Barago.



* EldritchAbomination: The Source of Evil. Keimos as well, after being influenced by the Source of Evil's malicious power.

to:

* EldritchAbomination: The Source of Evil. Keimos as well, after being influenced by the Source of Evil's malicious power. There's also Mokunen, an amalgamation of hatred and negative energy who served as mid-boss.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Rachef was visibly upset when Goriya was killed, and [[spoiler: in the ending, specifically sought out Goriya's soul to accompany him on his journey of redemption.]]
* FireForgedFriends: The main cast of protagonists.



** TheEvilGenius: Gorya the Seer.

to:

** TheEvilGenius: Gorya the Seer. Like Keimos, he could also qualify as TheDragon to Rachef.



* IShouldWriteABookAboutThis: Noriko sends a couple of diaries of her travels to her family on Earth, and encourages her fantasy novelist father to write a book based on them.

* LadyAndKnight: Noriko and Izark are a classic Bright Lady and White Knight couple, complete with a loyalty oath.
* LoveRedeems: Noriko's love for Izark, definitely, but also [[spoiler: ''RACHEF'', redeemed by both Noriko and Izark showing him he was always loved. This starts him on a long road to redemption in the afterlife.]]

to:

* LadyAndKnight: Noriko and Izark are a classic Bright Lady and White Knight couple, complete with a loyalty oath. \n The twist being that Noriko is not a noble or royalty, and Izark's power would suit a DarkKnight better [[spoiler: until the final moments of the manga.]]

** [[spoiler: Keimos' form in the finale could count too... MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily, check. Mouths in inappropriate places, check. Powered by an EldritchAbomination, check. OverlyLongGag, check.]]

* TheRival: Keimos Lee Goda. [[spoiler: His quest to defeat Izark basically drives him mad.]]

to:

* RagtagBunchOfMisfits: Two mercenaries(Izark and Agol), a former gladiator(Barago), a former master swordswoman(Garya), a nobleman and his two sons, their bodyguard(Banadam), a BlindSeer(Gina), and an island girl(Noriko).
* TheRival: Keimos Lee Goda. [[spoiler: His quest to defeat Izark basically drives him mad. In the end, what finally lets Izark defeat him is for him to acknowledge Keimos as his strongest foe ever as he kills him, allowing him to accept his fate and die in peace.]]



* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: Waaay over on the idealistic side. For instance, mundane love can reverse demonic transformations. It doesn't come across as being hammy.
