* ButNotTooBlack: In the manga, the skin tones of the four Rings are ''far'' more obviously different. Most notably, the Ochre Ring in the manga is made up of actual brown people, whereas Third in the anime just looks like he has a tan.
* CantHaveSexEver: Third's excuse for not sleeping with Chen is that he's sterile so he wouldn't be able to father a child, which is the point of having sex (at least with women) in Chimaeran society. This is probably just an excuse; the real reason is most likely that [[spoiler:his skin is actually white and he has blue eyes and silver/white hair, and even a hint of any of these traits appearing on his child would definitely blow his cover]].
* CombatPragmatist: Zagi
* Main/CompressedAdaptation: This is what happens when you try to squeeze five volumes of a manga rich in story and background info into only eleven episodes. Many vital pieces of information are missing from the anime (including the entire point of the story, that is that the people of Chimaera are a new subspecies of homo sapiens), making it random and disjointed.

* CombatPragmatist: Zagi
CombatPragmatist:
** Zagi. His favorite strategy in a one-on-one fight is to deliberately drop his sword, blind the enemy with his cape, and then kill them with the [[BladeBelowTheShoulder hidden blade on his arm]]. This is about as honorable as his fighting gets; he also might decide to slaughter an entire Ring of people without warning just because doing so will provoke the authorities on Juno. Other characters try to call him out on this, and he responds with scorn.
** Third to a lesser extent; he casually suggests allowing the Blanc Ring to attack Sun so that Thor will only have to defeat one Top to become Beast King.

* DrivenToSuicide: [[spoiler:Arguably Third, after his HeroicBSOD following the news that Earth was destroyed over 130 years ago; his entire life had been pretty much erased, and he wanted to save Thor, who would have also fallen to his death if he'd continued trying to pull Third up with him]].

** ''Zagi''. He has some PetTheDog moments with Thor and (oddly enough) Tiz, and Karim in the prequel, but overall he's an arrogant, cruel, not-even-borderline psychopath. He's the epitome of the Chimaeran species: a beast who is also human. It's just that he combines the ''worst'' qualities of both.

* ShesGotLegs: Chen. So, so much.
* SituationalSexuality: Women are very scarce on Chimera, and tend to live separately from men. As a result, a lot of otherwise straight men aren't against going for the next best thing (read:[[EvenTheGuysWantHim Thor]]).

* ShesGotLegs: Chen. So, so much.
Chen's legs are a major focus during her scenes in the first half, between her outfit and the [[MaleGaze angles from which she is shown]]. It makes her [[AnArmAndALeg injury]] during the TimeSkip all the more unpleasant.

** JekyllAndHyde: An interesting example, because each personality has both Jekyll and Hyde elements. [[spoiler:Third is an ally to the protagonists while Heiser is technically working with Odin against them. However, Third is cunning and violent compared to the less-driven, naturally more timid Sigurd]].

* {{Bishonen}}: Thor and Third. Maybe Zagi but he's more of a macho kind. Zagi becomes progressively prettier throughout the manga. In the Death Game prequel in the end of volume five, he is most certainly this trope. All of them are even more so in the anime.
* BiTheWay: Zagi. His relationship with Karim is [[MasochismTango complicated]], but definitely of a romantic/sexual nature; and his attraction to Thor is so blatant that Karim gets ''jealous''.

* WorstAid:
** When 11-year-old Thor has passed out from blood loss and his pulse is weakening, Third starts [[PercussiveMaintenance slapping him]]. It works.
** The trope is later subverted when Thor tries to pull one of Karim's barbed wires out of his shoulder and fails, falling to his knees in pain. She tells him there's a trick to it and collapses the barb before removing it.
