* CuteBruiser: A non-combat example. Haruna's build is, outside of a couple panels early, not appreciably different from any of the other girls in the series. That said, she's still a powerhouse - there was the result of the three-on-one fight against her seniors in school [[spoiler: in which at least two of them hurt themselves when they landed blows that Haruna shrugged off]], plus the time she had Yoh doubling over in pain inadvertently when she gave him a couple of lighthearted pats on the back. The few times she does start seeming angry, people are genuinely scared.



* FacePalm: Yoh's understandable reaction when he finally pieces together that the reason that his ex-girlfriend (who is ordinarily a huge ShrinkingViolet) has been so insistent on pursuing him has been because [[spoiler: his current girlfriend, Haruna, has been encouraging her... and Haruna didn't know who the ex-girlfriend had been pursuing]].



* GenkiGirl: Haruna full stop. When it is almost haruna's 17 birthday her parents revile that Haruna has been very energetic since birth.

to:

* GenkiGirl: Haruna Haruna, full stop. When it is almost haruna's Haruna's 17 birthday birthday, her parents revile that Haruna has been very energetic since birth.



* GenerationXerox: When Yoh and Asami's mother is finally introduced, it very strongly seems like this applies to Yoh and his mother, who look rather similar. [[spoiler: When it comes to personality, though, it quickly becomes clear that this is definitely the case with Asami and her mother.]]



* ObliviousToLove: Part and parcel of being TheDitz, Haruna doesn't catch on to when people are crushing on her at all. This comes up in particular when she helps with freshman orientation.



* SchoolFestival

to:

* SchoolFestivalSchoolFestival: The school athletic festival becomes a major focus in Haruna's junior year, in large part because Yoh becomes captain for his team.
* SchoolOfNoStudying: The closest anyone in the main cast ever comes to anything academic is when Yoh ponders what to study in college. The only official school events that even get brought up are a ceremony to welcome incoming freshmen, a school athletic festival, and a graduation speech. Otherwise, school just seems to be where they all hang out and have lunch, and homework is never an issue.


Added DiffLines:

* ShrinkingViolet: Yoh's ex-girlfriend, whose retiring personality inspires Haruna's protective and nuturing instincts.

* HeroicBSOD: Asami pretty much freezes into a JawDrop when [[spoiler: Haruna asks Yoh on an overnight trip]]. Asami returns the favor when [[spoiler: she tells Haruna that such trips are usually planned for sex.]]



* JawDrop: The entire Nagishima family when Haruna asks [[spoiler:if she can go on an 'overnight trip' with Yoh, despite her not knowing what it truly means]].

to:

* JawDrop: The entire Nagishima family when Haruna asks [[spoiler:if she can go on an 'overnight trip' with Yoh, despite her not knowing what it truly means]]. Later in the same chapter, their entire circle of friends repeats the jaw drop when [[spoiler: Haruna asks Yoh on said overnight trip]]. Asami holds the pose for several panels.


Added DiffLines:

* RomanticWingman: Mami, who helps Haruna to the best of her ability (which, by her own admission, is pretty limited) with how to pursue relationships and, later, [[spoiler: how to handle being in a relationship with Yoh]]. Haruna draws pretty clear parallels to how Mami used to do that on the softball field - Mami was the catcher who would give Haruna, the pitcher, the instructions to make the most of her talents.

Added DiffLines:

* BullyingADragon: The junior and senior girls who decide to make Haruna suffer [[spoiler: after she and Yoh start dating]] did not think their plan to get violent all the way through. [[spoiler: In flashback, it's shown that Haruna didn't even have to go on the attack for all of them - one hurt her head trying to headbutt Haruna, and another injured her wrist trying to punch her in the stomach.]]

* HoYay / LesYay: At one point, Yoh's sister Asami starts to doubt her attractiveness, so she tries making eyes with Haruna to see if she still can seduce someone. [[spoiler:She can, and Yoh stops Asami right before she tempts Haruna into kissing her.]] Later, [[spoiler:Haruna gets so despondent over another guy kissing her that she considers running off to become a nun. In order to shock Haruna and show her it's no big deal, Yoh ''also'' kisses the guy. It also shocks all of their friends.]] To cap it off, [[spoiler:the guy in question afterwards marvels about the kiss. "so soft..." ]]

* CryingWolf: Asaoka is rarely serious about anything he says and makes promises only to manipulate a loophole in his words. So when he [[spoiler:confesses to Haruna]], even after promising Yoh he wouldn't, she just smiles at him and says, "I'm not falling for that!" Possibly subverted, since there's no way of knowing if he was being honest.
