* TheCollector: Tomas is obsessed with collecting all the beautiful things of the world, to the point where [[spoiler: he was already a criminal before joining MLS. His best friend Page didn't realize he was insane until it was too late]]. He's thrilled when he learns his demon contract allows him to suck things into a PocketDimension.

** Goryo, who's willing to let an innocent person get re-possessed and ''go insane'' after she couldn't pay the fee.

to:

** Julio's contracted demon is the Red Witch, said to be the laziest demon in hell. When his curse triggers he becomes both versions of "sloth", extremely lazy and filled with despair: "We're doomed, we're going to die, ''so let's all die together''".


Added DiffLines:

* UnskilledButStrong: Roji has a high amount of spiritual energy (he can make five seals to Yoichi's three) but almost no training or even knowledge of his own strengths thanks to Muhyo's laziness. [[spoiler: He's actually even more powerful than that -- Page slipped him a bow tie as a child to keep him safe from ghosts, but didn't say what it was: an energy suppressor.]]

* EvilAllAlong: [[spoiler: Rio. Though in this case she was manipulated.]]



* MeaninglessVillainVictory: Back when Goryo was still a jerkass, [[spoiler: he managed to beat Muyho in their contest by killing the last ghost. However Muyho was the one ultimately appeased the bigger threat controlling said ghosts and even reunited it with her daughter. Goryo may have won Muhyo's office, but can't relish the victory because he knows, in the large scheme of thing, Muyho is still the better executior and he only won on a technicality.]]



* PoorCommunicationKills: ''A lot'' of the problems in this series could've been solved before they even begin if the characters bothered to listen to one another. For example, Enchu went down his path because he though Muyho was honestly trying to steal the Executior spot from him [[spoiler: If anything, Muyho was trying to help him as he knew how badly he wanted to help his mother. And it isn't till he's nearly too far gone and has killed people that he finally listens.]]



* ShutUpHannibal: [[spoiler:Roji declares that he refuses to believe that people's fates cannot be changed, and that Enchu merely couldn't deal with his grief, and dispels the curse technique, allowing the heroes to move again]].

* AntiVillain:
** Type II: Enchu. Roji ultimately realizes that rather than hating Enchu, he was burdened with sorrow. [[spoiler:Enchu's accomplice Rio]], who turned to Ark under similar circumstances, also fits.
** Type IV: Panza. Muhyo notices that she's not evil like the rest of Ark, [[spoiler:and sends her to Heaven]].



** Tomas talking about killing an MLS agent and contemptuously describes his letter to his wife.

* {{Foil}}: Muhyo and Enchu during their MLS days. Muhyo was (and still is) a BrilliantButLazy JerkWithAHeartOfGold. Enchu [[UsedToBeASweetKid was nicer than Muhyo]], and was working hard to help his sick mother.



* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Muhyo appears very cold and pitiless, but often talks the envoys he summons into giving ghosts a lighter sentence, and he really does care about people. He just has a funny way of showing it.

Added DiffLines:

* RageAgainstTheMentor: Roji lashes out at Muhyo at one point, angrily asking him why he doesn't teach him anything despite his efforts to be a good assistant, and asks if it's because he doesn't trust him. Muhyo coldly tells him that his actions during the competition were to force Roji to show him what he could do, but now that he didn't deliver, [[spoiler:he intends to put him on leave]] so that he can realize what he must do.


Added DiffLines:

* SweetAndSourGrapes: Enchu desperately wanted to become an Executor, while Muhyo was apathetic about it, to the point of [[spoiler:saying he'd give it to Enchu if he was chosen]]. Muhyo is chosen for "thinking of others", and because of Enchu's preoccupation with his sick mother being a point against him (which becomes true given that [[spoiler:Teeki killed his mother to drive him over the edge]]).


Added DiffLines:

** Muhyo's decision after [[spoiler:losing to Goryo]]
-->'''Muhyo''': ''(to Roji)'' I suppose now's as good a time as any. [[spoiler:I'm putting you on leave until further notice]].
** Near the end of the manga, a long-forgotten wrinkle in Roji's [[spoiler:provisional]] rank comes up.
-->'''Muhyo''': So you're happy with [[spoiler:getting fired]]?


Added DiffLines:

* YankTheDogsChain: A particularly cruel version happens to Yuki Otada, when the kids who had bullied him falsely apologize offer him their contact information to stay in touch. After trying to contact them and discovering the information was false, [[spoiler:he is DrivenToSuicide]].
