* NotSoDifferent: Played with a bit with Johan and Tenma. Inspector Lunge analyzes Johan's murders from the perspective that Tenma is the killer and that "Johan" is simply an alternate personality that doesn't really exist. His conclusions aren't as far-fetched as one would think: He correctly reads that the crimes were committed with a calm, clinical, and emotionless approach and reasons that Tenma's profession as a neurosurgeon would require such a mindset. Complicating things is the fact that Tenma and Johan ''do'' share one personality trait in common: [[IntelligenceEqualsIsolation They are both disconnected from other people and society in general]]. When Lunge learns that Tenma is estranged from his family and doesn't fit into Japanese society, it only further reinforces his perception that Tenma's detachment is what enables him to kill. In reality, [[NotSoSimilar Tenma isn't as much like the real killer as Lunge thinks he is]]. For starters, Johan's DissonantSerenity sharply contrasts with Tenma's [[NotSoStoic assertions that he isn't as calm as he appears to be]]. In addition, the nature of each character’s alienation differs. Tenma (according to ''Another Monster'') is just an introvert who values his independence [[IJustWantToHaveFriends but still wants to connect to others and is capable of doing so]], while Johan [[LackOfEmpathy has lost the ability and the desire to care about or connect with anyone whatsoever]]. Despite being completely wrong in his theory, it's still easy to see Lunge's logic nevertheless.

** Johan and Nina, despite being PolarOppositeTwins, have some key similarities. The most obvious similarities are that both of them have had their sense of identity disturbed at one point or another and have lost much of the childhood memories. Furthermore, while Johan is clearly the most dangerous twin, neither one of them is someone you should mess with. But what's most disturbing is that [[spoiler: Nina exhibits a violent inner "monster" of her own when placed under hypnosis. This repressed dark side was created by the very same events that made Johan who he is. The only difference is that those events ''actually happened'' to Nina, whereas Johan simply ''convinced'' himself that everything happened to him]].
