* StraightGay: Ichinomiya is solely attracted to men, but, due to the nature of winging not having anything to do with gender or sexuality, is surrounded by a harem of beautiful women at all times, causing his homosexuality to be something of an InformedAbility. Despite this, we later learn his backstory, which explains all of his more unsettling characteristics, revolves around [[BuryYourGays the death of his (male) lover]].

* EveryoneIsBi: While the respective gender ratios of [[ImprobablyFemaleCast Sekirei]] and [[TheSmurfettePrinciple Ashikabi]] makes it much more likely for a male Ashikabi to have a female Sekirei, this is hardly always the case. In these instances, characters who are otherwise shown to be exclusively heterosexual will show obvious signs of being attracted to the same sex.



* IfItsYouItsOkay: All Sekirei appear to be attracted to the opposite gender. Whether or not their Ashikabi happens to be that gender is completely unrelated. Some, like Mutsu and Uzume, take it much better than [[{{Gayngst}} others]].

Added DiffLines:

* TheSmurfettePrinciple: The Ashikabi seem to follow an inverse of [[ImprobablyFemaleCast the gender ratio of the Sekirei]], with all but three of the known Ashikabi being male, and only one of the known female Ashikabi being considered a part of the game's major players. Notably, two of the three happen to be the owners of some of the only known male Sekirei.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Several examples:
** Minaka often welcomes players trying to change the rules a little bit, and will act accordingly to counteract their plans, such as sending troops to the area Minato is trying to help Haruka and Kuno escape. Even at the end of Season 2, Matsu mentions hacking Minaka's spacecraft to leave him hopelessly stranded in orbit, but she says that he'll probably figure out how to regain control (which he does a few moments later, and makes a point to mention that).
** The Discipline Squad knows exactly where to go when Minato is trying his escape plan at the end of Season 1. And in Season 2, after their first fight, Benitsubasa closes off the walls to force Kazehana to fight in a small area where she can't use her wind magic effectively. Haihane does something similar with Tsukiumi, luring her into a room where she can't easily escape with her water magic.
** Miya and some other residents of Maison Izumo seems to know a lot more about the Sekirei plan and MBI's ambitions than they should. However, its gradually revealed that they knew about Minaka's plans all along, and either tried to fight against it, or else ran away to avoid taking part in it. Miya claims she could kill Minaka if asked to, but Matsu mentions that the city would get destroyed in the process.

* LittleMissBadass:
**Kusano, at least at anime episode 11 where she carried a big grenade launcher atop Matsu's motorcycle.
** Yukari, who eventually gains the all-too-appropriate nickname [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast "Devil Ashikabi"]].



* LockedOutOfTheLoop: Miya goes out of her way to withhold information from Minato, to the point of subtly threatening people who try and reveal too much.
** Really, no one lets this guy know ''anything'' unless necessary...

* {{Badass}}: Every Sekirei is supposed to be this to varying extents.
** BadassBiker: Matsu, in the anime. Sanada of the West is also one.
** BadassBookworm: Again, Matsu. She is one of the single-digit Sekirei, after all. If she has to fight, she will turn into a biker babe with a bazooka.
** BadassCrew: Minato, Seo, and Sanada's harems all count.
** BadassNormal: Seo and Sanada, who both ignore the rule about Ashikabi not fighting. Minato by the end of Season 2. [[spoiler: He fought Haihane to save Kazehana, and was doing a damned good job considering Haihane could've sliced him to ribbons had it not been for being dizzy from the fumes of alcohol, and he also survives several things like having a roof collapse on him, and takes so many wounds for his Sekirei he's practically MadeOfIron. And, by the end of Season 2, having the sheer balls to stand up to Karasuba, especially when she could have effortlessly killed him, should be proof positive he's taken several levels in badass.]]
*** [[spoiler: He actually managed to knock out Haihane in the Sake warehouse twice.]]
