Added DiffLines:

* DefeatMeansFriendship: Hamazaki, a thug upperclassman, tries to torture Rei after he storms into a senior classroom. This does not go as planned, with Rei easily thrashing Hamazaki ''and'' all of his friends. Once Rei returns from suspension, Hamazaki apologizes and becomes a friend to Rei and Kira, even going by personal nicknames like, "Hama," going to cheer Rei on in the Suzuka 8-hour endurance race, and giving Kira and her mother a discount when his family's company handles their move.

Added DiffLines:

* FaceFault: Realistic example. When Rei promises to protect Kira, he also jokingly offers to "lend [her his] body" if she feels like fooling around. As he's going down the stairs, Kira calls after him and asks him to lend her his body (to use as a model for her painting), causing Rei to slip and fall down the stairs in shock.

* GetOut: Takayuki shouts this at [[spoiler:Shoko after he stops her from killing Rei as a child]].



* MyBelovedSmother: Shoko again. By the time the boys were 4 she still wasn't even letting them leave the house.



* {{Yandere}}: In a non-romantic example, [[spoiler: Shoko]] is so insane and so devoted to keeping her children safe that she tries to strangle them and commit suicide rather than be separated from them.

** Even more surprisingly, Takayuki as well. He slapped [[spoiler:Shoko after she tried to strangle Rei]].

* BigFancyHouse: Rei's father's house is like this. Rei, on the other hand, lives in a crappy apartment in a bad side of town.

to:

* BigFancyHouse: Rei's father's house is like this.this, to the point of awkwardness. Rei, on the other hand, lives in a crappy apartment in a bad side of town.


Added DiffLines:

* BrilliantButLazy: Rei is actually very intelligent. He just has zero interest in school.


Added DiffLines:

* ParentsAsPeople: One of the themes of the story is that the adults are just as mixed up and vulnerable as the teenage main cast. They love their children very much and always try to do what's best, but for one reason or another fall short. This discovery is healing for Rei, but probably not so much for Kira.
* PolarOppositeTwins: Rei was always very active and prone to getting himself into trouble while Sei was quiet, artistic, and something of a crybaby. [[spoiler: And then the real reason it turned out they were opposites was that while Rei had it in him to be well-adjusted, Sei was actually a sociopath who placed no value in human life aside from him and Rei.]]
