* DeathSeeker: [[spoiler:It's implied in the manga that becoming a Jinrou tends to end up making the person suicidal, with them usually needing something to keep them going to stop it. Tatsumi was a StarwNihilist who wanted everyone to die, Toshie clung to the hope of the village finally being a home she can live in peace and blew herself up with dynamite when that was impossible, and Natsuno had accepted that the village itself would be his grave just as he always feared it would be when he was alive.]]

* {{Badass}}:
** Natsuno definitely qualifies for [[spoiler:bashing a vampire over the head with a shovel]].
** Also Ookawa qualifies as [[spoiler: he is the first villager to go hunting Shiki with Toshio]]. He can also stop a moving car with his bare hands.
** Toshio for [[spoiler: his BatmanGambit to prove the existence of Shiki to the villagers]].
** Seishin [[spoiler: decides to protect Sunako from the villagers hunting the last of the Shiki, carrying her to safety while bleeding from a knife wound and suffering anemia caused by feeding Sunako and Tatsumi earlier]].

* {{Deconstruction}}: The story essentially functions as a deconstruction of horror literature, particularly ''Literature/SalemsLot'' and its ilk.

* GrayingMorality: The story starts with the humans squarely in the white while the shiki's are in the black. As the story progresses however, both sides start to progressively move more and more into the grey, until the point that it get's so muddled that the story leaves up to viewer interpretation over which side was ALighterShadeOfGrey.

%% * PyrrhicVictoryPyrrhicVictory: [[spoiler: Even though the villagers succeed in wiping out the Shiki, it comes with the high cost of most of the villagers being killed and the entire village getting burnt down. On the other end, Seishin and Sunako manage to escape with their lives, but Sunako's dream of a "Shiki Heaven" has pretty much been forever shattered.]]

** The behaviour of the whole village population is so moronic that itís a wonder they managed to survive even before the arrival of vampires. As a minor example, no one is overly suspicious about people suddenly up and leaving the village (and leaving all their possessions behind at that), or that itís the same vehicle that transports them away.

** Chizuru for her 11th hour villain stupidity. She decides to drop her guard around Toshio for some reason and let him take her into the midst of a celebrating still-human crowd. Was she to wait only a little bit longer, sheíd have gotten herself the vampiric village she was so eager to have.
** Same applies to Seishirou for not organising a better protection for his wife when she ''does'' decide to get herself into a crowd of humans.

** One of the kids (that was initially trying to figure things out with Natsuno) eventually went into the vampire residence even though heíd been specifically warned against doing that because some vampires were able to stay active during the daytime.
** After finding out about vampires, on several occasions Toshio had a chance of saving a villager that was being thralled (the vegetarian nurse, for instance). He chose to do nothing and let them get hunted to death.

** These vampires do not display classic traits such as supernatural strength, so they're fairly easily to fight in hand-to-hand combat. This makes it so the [[spoiler:the villagers can easily fight and kill them even during the night, as they outnumber the Shiki and are better armed.]]
