* ElementalRockPaperScissors: Averted; It's demonstrated over the course of the series that the superiority depends on the wielder, rather than the element they are using. [[PlayingWithFire Hotaru]] initially overpowers [[MakingASplash Shinrei]] despite severe injuries from fighting Kyo, but only because he's using his Hono Chikewai, which gives him a huge boost of power but causes damage over time. Shinrei ultimately comes out on top because Hotaru's boost wears off. And later, ''both'' of them get mercilessly [[CurbStompBattle curbstomped]] by [[MakingASplash Fubuki, a true master of water]].

* SuperHeroSpeciation: Within any given group (the Shiseiten, Goyosei, Taishiro, etc), no two characters will have the same abilities. Tokito is ''capable'' of PlayingWithFire (Yuan's specialty), but it's not his main form of attack.

Added DiffLines:

** Played with in Kyo's case. He's even more thoroughly CoveredWithScars than Akira, but his established status as a AntiHero of the highest order means they aren't as jarring as they might be on a typical hero. The scars on his face are also more understated.

[[spoiler:The same thing happens when the Mibu themselves die. Near the end of the manga, Fubuki reveals that they're artificial constructs, too]].
