* EvilIsPetty: Heinemann is all over this. He sabotages his career purely out of spite, and orders him to be discharged from caring for Johan because he doesn't want Tenma getting the media attention it would bring.

* NotSoDifferent: Both played straight and subverted with Tenma and Johan. Having never met Johan and believing that he [[UnPerson doesn't even exist]], Inspector Lunge is unable to distinguish the results of Johan's actions from the personality of Dr. Tenma. This isn't foolishness on his part, however: He correctly reads that each of the crimes require a calm, clinical, and emotionless approach to have been committed as they were and concludes that a neurosurgeon of Dr. Tenma's caliber needs that sort of mindset to be as successful as he is. Complicating things is the fact that Tenma and Johan ''do'' share one personality trait in common: [[IntelligenceEqualsIsolation They are both disconnected from other people]]. Lunge connects this kind of detachment to the ability to kill without a second thought. In reality, however, that's where their similarities end. Johan is a {{foil}} to Tenma in that despite their shared isolation and loneliness, he (unlike Tenma) has lost the ability to care about others and the desire to connect to anyone at all. Lunge may have been completely wrong about Tenma, but it's easy to see his logic.

** It's arguably even more personal for Nina, what with Johan being her twin brother and having [[spoiler: [[YouKilledMyFather killed her foster parents]]]]. ''Repeatedly''.



* NotSoDifferent: Without a personal relationship with Johan, Dr. Lunge is unable to distinguish the results of Johan's actions from the personality of Dr. Tenma. [[spoiler: Dr. Lunge loses his wife because of his certainty that the crimes Johan commits are actually committed by Tenma.]] This isn't foolishness on his part, however (he is the greatest detective in Germany): he reads that each of the crimes (perpetrated by Johan) require a calm, clinical, and emotionless approach to have been committed as they are; he correctly ascertains that a neurosurgeon of Dr. Tenma's caliber needs that sort of countenance while performing his operations to achieve the successes that he has in surgery. Having never met Johan, [[UnPerson and Johan having never previously existed prior to his admission to the hospital]], he almost has no other alternative, following his near impeccable logic and cognition, than to conclude that Dr. Tenma is the killer.
