* ForgottenFirstMeeting: Subaru meets Seisshirou as he [[spoiler:[[CradlingYourKill cradles his kill]]]], and they end up making a promise. Years later Subaru only remembers this as a vague dream, and has little idea why Seisshirou has suddenly appeared in his life as a suitor. Unfortunately the memory isn't a very happy one, once it's revealed.

* AngelDevilShipping: Seishirou and Subaru are set up to be this way, both physically and mentally. And in the end, [[spoiler: it isn't deconstructed - just made even MORE apparent!]]



* FetishFuel: Incredibly handsome, dangerous older man pursuing pretty, innocent teenage boy? Check. Dark, brooding, sinister yet sexy undertones? Check. And then CLAMP goes and deconstructs this ''brutally''.

* 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.

Sometimes the high-pitched emotions and acute despair manifest themselves into ghosts and curses. Enter Sumeragi Subaru, 13th head of the Sumeragi clan and a 16-year-old ''[[{{Onmyodo}} onmyouji]]''. He uses his spiritual power and genuine compassion to help people, exorcise trapped spirits and undo maledictions. In this modern world, where nothing is truly black and white, this is hardly easy, especially because of Subaru's tendency to care too much for people.
