* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Garai initially thinks that all of Michio's horrible acts are motivated by a desire for revenge against those responsible for the MW accident. Michio reveals that he doesn't give a shit about payback, and considers the notion absurd. No, he just wants to bring an end to all human history when he dies, really for no other reason than ''he feels like it''.

* MoralityChain: Garai makes ineffectual attempts to be this to Michio, and instead ends up being a heavily subverted MoralityPet - the one person Michio really cares for, but not treated any better for it.
