Added DiffLines:

* IntangibleTheft: Jing claims to be able to steal anything and that is what he does. He ''does'' concede defeat after discovering that one treasure is a landmark. Given that he has succeeded in stealing greed, a dream, and a smile, this is quite an admission. [[SubvertedTrope However, each of the three things he stole did have a physical representation that was small enough to carry one-handed.]]

* AndTheAdventureContinues: Twilight Tales ends on this kind of note [[spoiler: after Jing returns for Picon.]] See NoEnding entry below.
* ArmCannon: Kir's attack mode, also seen with Sherry; seems to be an ability of certain animals.



* BadassLongcoat: Jing's is bulletproof and bright yellow-orange; he loses momentarily in the final volume of Twilight Tales.

* BladeBelowTheShoulder: When not using Kir - this is Jing's preferred weapon, a long retractable blade attached to a gauntlet he wears underneath his jacket; in the original series it was a curved blade, by Twilight Tales he's opted for a larger double-edged straight blade.



* CallingCard: When he chooses to leave one - it'll have the standard "i'm going to take this" message and display his signature symbol; a black cat mask with swirly eyes.



* IconicItem: Jing's bright yellow-orange longcoat, he's almost unrecognizable without it.



* JustAKid: Most of the characters don't take Jing seriously because of this.

The manga series was followed by a sequel series known as ''King of Bandit Jing: Twilight Tales''. The closest that the anime series got to a sequel was an OAV called ''"King of Bandit Jing: Seventh Heaven"'' which somehow managed to be even more incomprehensible than the main series was.

King of Bandit Jing is a series of short, usually disconnected stories starring the eponymous young boy. His partner is a wisecracking crow named Kir who can transform into a WaveMotionGun by fusing with Jing's arm; this is the only supernatural power that Jing possesses. Although his reputation seems to extend throughout the universe of the series, many enemies underestimate Jing, [[ExpectingSomeoneTaller not expecting the "great King of Bandits" to be a "little kid"]].

Added DiffLines:

* CharacterTic: Jing really likes "shooting the bird" but it makes sense considering how he and Kir [[VisualPun attack]].


Added DiffLines:

* VisualPun: Jing "shoots the bird" to his enemies to taunt them. To attack, Jing turns Kir into a weapon that fires energy blasts, so he then literally "shoots the bird".
