* TheAce
** Yaguchi. Handsome, outstanding athlete, gentlemanly, and rumored to have a huge dick. He sadly lost (maybe) his athletic ability due to his injuries. He is also probably the only male character in the manga who is not broken or crazy in some ways.

Added DiffLines:

* BrokenBird: Punpun and Aiko both qualify.


Added DiffLines:

* ImportantHaircut: Sachi gets one at one point.


Added DiffLines:

* JerkassGods: Punpun's god is this, either being deliberately unhelpful or straight up nasty to Punpun, to the point that even Punpun calls him "an asshole" at one point. [[spoiler: {{Justified}} in that this "god" is really a representation of Punpun's conscience and depression, which becomes more clear later on in the story as he moves from being a simple annoyance to being [[GodIsEvil downright malevolent and hellbent on making Punpun kill himself, or someone else.]]]]


Added DiffLines:

* LoserProtagonist: Punpun becomes this as the series goes on.


Added DiffLines:

* RuleOfSymbolism: Some scenes are very strange, even in the context of the story, but get a pass due to their obviously symbolic nature.


Added DiffLines:

* SlowlySlippingIntoEvil: Happens to Punpun as the terrible events of his life pile up, and increases in speed after [[spoiler: he reconnects with Aiko.]]

* DarkerAndEdgier: By far the most dark, cynical and depressing of Inio Asano's works to date.

to:

* DarkerAndEdgier: By far the most dark, cynical and depressing of Inio Asano's works to date. According to WordOfGod, the reason for this is two-fold: firstly, [[https://mangabrog.wordpress.com/2014/06/16/inio-asano-on-nijigahara-punpun/ he didn't wish to be pigeonholed as a creator of “feel-good twenty-something manga”]]. The second reason is that at the time of Punpun's conception, [[https://mangabrog.wordpress.com/2015/08/17/a-tour-through-inio-asanos-workspace/ Asano felt there was a lot of "feel-good", optimistic manga, so he set off to create a story to fulfill a different niche and present a darker and more cynical storyline]].

''Oyasumi Punpun'' ("Goodnight, Punpun") is a supremely bizarre {{Seinen}} manga by Creator/InioAsano about the title character, Punpun. Punpun is a young, innocent, and naive child, who, in some kind of strange stylistic choice, is depicted as a simplistic sketch of a bird despite everyone outside of his family looking like a normal human. He has no real dreams, his father is an abusive deadbeat (at least, he appears to be), and his mother is a drunk who regrets having him, but Punpun has one thing: a pretty girl named Aiko whom he fawns over. Well, her, and an afro'd and slightly useless god he can summon by chanting 'Dear God, dear God, tinkle-tinkle hoy!'

* CerebusSyndrome: The beginning of the manga has a lot of quirky humor, a faint sense of childike wonder, optimism, and innonence. However, as the story goes on, the darker aspects of the story come in full force and the story becomes increasingly oppressive and depressing, with a lot of the earlier surrealism vanishing.

* HumansAreBastards/HumansAreFlawed: The series has a pretty complicated take on this. Most of the characters are noticeably flawed in many ways, frequently engaging in acts of pettiness or downright cruelty and depravity to the point where it'd be easy to write off most of them as terrible people. However the manga also goes out of its way to show that many of these same people are this way because of their circumstances, and that they are capable of moments of profound kindness and empathy, which makes it hard to write them purely as one or the other.

* QuestionableConsent: Punpun and Aiko's first time together -- Punpun practically coerces Aiko into having sex with him, the atmosphere is devoid of any positivity, the sex itself is rough and Aiko never displays any pleasure throughout it, and Punpun doesn't exercise any restraint, leaving Aiko a sore, bleeding mess by the end.
