* ActOfTrueLove: [[spoiler: In a platonic example, Hokuto does this towards and for both Subaru and Seishirou. Even while knowing Seishirou is dangerous, Hokuto knew from the start that Subaru would fall in love with him so she pushed the two of them together. When Seishirou's true nature is revealed and he shatters Subaru's heart, Hokuto [[HeroicSacrifice does this again]] when she takes Subaru's place so Seishirou will murder her instead of her brother. In {{X1999}} it is revealed that she also gave Seishirou both a LastSecondChance and a warning telling him that everyone deserves love and that if he ever tried to kill Subaru the same way he killed her, the death will be reversed and Seishirou would die by his own hand.
