Added DiffLines:

* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Phoenix herself is ''all over the place'' in some of the books. In some she's a benevolent goddess [[GodOfGood guiding and protecting creation]]. Others she's a fierce guardian who will uphold a greater cosmic balance, [[GoodIsNotNice and crush you like a bug if you dare interfere in her work]]. Sometimes she's a cruel mistress of dispensing punishment, [[ForTheEvulz sometimes called, and uncalled for]].

Added DiffLines:

* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: The Phoenix is continually reincarnating the Universe in the hopes mankind will finally be harmonious with itself and nature. She hopes mankind will use the life he is given wisely, and even more, eventually, [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence returning to her]]/[[PiecesOfGod becoming part of her]]. She never succeeds and never quits.


Added DiffLines:

* WeAreAsMayflies: How 99% of humanity sees itself, thus pursues the Phoenix for her fiery blood [[LivingForeverIsAwesome to cheat death]].

*** Other characters performed their fair share of atrocities, yet Akon no Suke is the only one we know of who is forced to live through something on the the level of the loop of coming to the temple, killing herself, becoming the healer, realizing the truth, and wait to be killed by her past self. The situation does indeed come off as being a tract against suicide that ended up being {{Disproportionate Retribution}}.

* SceneryPorn: This being OsamuTezuka, there are tons of splash pages devoted to showing off gorgeously rendered landscapes and architecture. Note that his humans are always simple and cartoony despite backgrounds that range from simplified props to photorealistic environments.

* BlackAndGrayMorality: Mostly grays, but you're more likely to find a totally evil character than a perfectly good character. Gao, for instance, is one of the more purely good protagonists... if not for his start as an indiscriminate thief and mass murderer. It is notable that killing seems to be considered acceptable if one does it to survive, as it is no different than hunting (one of the themes, especially in Gao's book ''Karma,'' is that all life is equal).

** Benta and Obu from Civil War could qualify as purely good characters since the worst thing Benta ever does is steal an unclaimed but precious comb, and Obu never commits any crime whatsoever.
*** Well Benta did kill Minamoto Yoshitsune, but he had very a good reason for it.
