* BadassFamily: Moka's superpowerful family of vampires includes her KickChick self, her CuteBruiser BloodKnight younger sister Kokoa, her [[AffablyEvil cheerfully frightening]] [[ImplacableMan Implacable Woman]] ditz of a middle sister Kahlua, the [[TheJuggernaut reigning queen]] of evil badass} Akuha, the eldest sister, and Akasha, Moka's mother, who, if it ever came to that, [[ActionMom could probably beat every girl in the above list.

* BecomingTheMask: Akuha, Moka's eldest sister, [[spoiler: intentionally angled herself to go live with the Shuzen family so she could get close to Moka's mother and kill her as part of her attempts to become a Shinso. However, over time she found herself genuinely starting to care for her little sister Moka and admits that she held off on the attempt far longer than she meant to as a result of these feelings. Subverted in the end, unfortunately, as the mask proves not ''quite'' enough to overcome her drive for power...]]

** After [[spoiler: Moka is taken away by Akuha,]] Tsukune seeks training from Touhou Fuhai, in order to save her. Touhou Fuhai decides to introduce Tsukune to his ''Human Modification Technique'', which involves remolding Tsukune's body to use Yokai powers. The process of this technique involves inserting needles into Tsukune's body. Then, Touhou Fuhai reveals that this is just the first of 109 needles, and each successive one is going to be even more horrifically painful than the last. You do the math.

* FiveRoundsRapid: When her AbsurdlySharpBlade proves ineffective against [[PsychoLesbian Akuha's]] AbsurdlySharpBlade, [[OurZombiesAreDifferent Ling-Ling]] unloads an Uzi on her, only for the bullets to [[IntangibleMan pass right through]]. You'd think she'd know better, since they ''use the exact same power''. TooDumbToLive, which is probably why she's [[CatchPhrase already dead]].
** Ling-Ling's version of their shared power can only be used for offense. The stronger and more skilled Akuha can use it both offensively and defensively.

** Akuha's less than exceptional actions over the course of the story all center around the idea that she thinks she's the only one that could love and understand Moka (Inner Moka, not the Moka the rosario projects) completely. [[spoiler: And it has a lot to do with the fact that Inner Moka looks quite a bit like her dead sister Jasmine, basically serving as [[MyGreatestSecondChance Her Greatest Second Chance]].]]

** In the manga, San, Ginei and Haiji have a very similar relationship as the Three Dark Lords. [[spoiler:San and Akasha are both the SmurfettePrinciple, Akasha is the strongest of them and the leader, San is the strongest in Yokai Gakuen's history and she led Ginei and Haiji's paths in their school life. Ginei and Toho Fuhai are both {{Chivalrous Pervert}}s and they have a VitriolicBestBuds relationship with Haiji and Mikogami, respectively, and they are more {{Bishounen}} than the latter. Haiji and Mikogami are both more of muscles. Ginei and Haiji admire San, and it's revealed that both Toho Fuhai and Mikogami have flirted with Akasha. Also, all of them are high-class yokai.]]

* HalfTheManHeUsedToBe: [[spoiler: What Akuha does to apparently dispatch Moka's mom in Chapter 32 which triggered Moka to gain the power she has today in her inner self. Later, she does it to Fang-Fang's older sister. Conveniently, they're the two characters who absolutely cannot be killed by such an injury.]]

** [[spoiler:When Moka is mortally wounded by Alucard, it looks like there is no way to save her, other than injecting vampiric blood into her, but Akua doesn't have enough power to seal the deal, so Tsukune, without a way out, resolves to break his seal, enlarge his fangs (since in ghoul mode they aren't big enough) and inject his blood into Moka. Subverted closely, since the crew used ThePowerOfFriendship to help him finally get a grip on his shinso blood and the result not only saved Moka, but allowed Tsukune to stop being a ghoul and becoming a Shinso vampire.]]

** Played with in an interesting case: [[spoiler: Akuha's backstory shows that her pseudo-sister Jasmine was lynched and dismembered by a group of angry humans who figured out that they were vampires. Except the reason they were out for blood is because Akuha ''killed'' a human that Jasmine liked, because she was [[SelfFulfillingProphecy that sure]] that any human would be out to get them and didn't want to see Jasmine get hurt, even if he hadn't even done anything yet.]]

** Technically, it's more levels of "Not sure it will work"; it's the first time she's done it, and although [[spoiler: Tsukune's AnguishedDeclarationOfLove towards Moka]] certainly didn't help, she is feeling weakness from doing a complex spell like this and she did get lost on the way. Cue Tohofuhai's internal BigWhat and disbelief.

** As dark as the current arc is, you can always continue to expect at least one silly, random or just plain goofy moment thrown in to lighten the mood, if only for a moment. Whether it be Akua fangirling over her own sister, the hilarious training methods of the rest of the cast or something else entirely, the manga hardly goes one chapter without getting a good laugh in. If there's no humor at all...then something horrible is going down. But, if there are a few funny moments afterwards, then that means there's hope.

* MyKungFuIsStrongerThanYours: The [[AbsurdlySharpClaws Dimension Sword]] technique (detailed below under {{Telefrag}} + {{Vibroweapon}}) has three known users, and its effectivity is directly proportionate to how many "dimension shifts per second" it uses. Ling-Ling Huang uses sixteen ds/sec; Aqua Shuzen and Tohofuhai use ''one hundred'' ds/sec.

* {{Telefrag}} + {{Vibroweapon}}: The [[AbsurdlySharpBlade Dimension Sword]] technique. Let's let Tohofuhai explain it better:
-->'''Tohofuhai:''' The Dimension Sword is like a 'saw' moving back and forth between dimensions. Watch. First, I'll put my hand through this block of wood by shifting dimensions.

My hand moves back and forth between dimensions as if pulling a saw, which enables me to destroy any object with ease.

** [[spoiler: In the epilogue, Fang-Fang takes several more as the clan head of the Huang family, being considered the "second coming of Tohofuhai" once he figures himself out. And Kiria steps up to the plate as the new head of Fairy Tale.]]

** As if the last couple of chapters weren't enough, Chapter 38 seems to firmly push Akuha into this territory, with a slight mix of Tsundere.

* CerebusSyndrome: The manga plays this HARD: it begins almost completely comedy-driven, with Tsukune the gag-hero in a typical harem-style setup. Then Mizore comes along as the first character with a serious, non-gag-driven plot arc comprising her introduction. Ruby's introduction during the Witch War arc doesn't pull any of the punches either. Now that we've hit the second manga serialization, we're getting really serious with the whole Fairy Tale organization.
