* BlackAndGreyMorality: The majority of ghouls kill humans without hesitation. Humans generally kill ghouls indiscriminately due to how easily they can be killed by ghouls' kagune. The few ghouls that don't kill humans are either killed by ghouls due to being weaker and involved in territorial disputes or by humans so they can be stripped of their kagune so they can be manufactured into anti-Ghoul weapons.

** A Type 4 ([[LoveDodecahedron at least]]) seems to be developing between Urie, Mutsuki, and Matsuri. Urie has loads of ShipTease with Mutsuki, while Matsuri is developing an obsession with his younger subordinate. For bonus complications, Matsuri is also in a loveless ArrangedMarriage with TheBeard.

** A Type 4 5 ([[LoveDodecahedron at least]]) seems to be developing between Urie, Mutsuki, and Matsuri. Urie has loads of ShipTease with Mutsuki, while develops within the CCG. Matsuri Washuu is developing an obsession secretly in love with his younger subordinate. For bonus complications, Matsuri subordinate, Urie......who is also in completely fixated on Mutsuki to the point of GibberishOfLove. Unfortunately for him, Mutsuki actually has feelings for [[spoiler: Sasaki/Kaneki......to a loveless ArrangedMarriage with TheBeard.[[{{Yandere}} violently obsessive]] degree]].


Added DiffLines:

* {{Yandere}}: Numerous characters are ''definitely'' taking their InterplayOfSexAndViolence too far. Kaneki/Sasaki in particular [[UnwantedHarem collects them like candy]].
** Kanae towards [[KissingCousins Tsukiyama]], including wanting to murder Sasaki to get him out of the way.
** Torso towards all his "lovers" in general, hacking off their limbs so they cannot "leave". He eventually fixates on Mutsuki as his destined "lover".
** Roma towards Kaneki, including wanting to "kill" Sasaki because she thinks he's most beautiful when he's a TragicHero.
** [[spoiler: Mutsuki]] ends up being one towards Sasaki, including thinking about killing Touka. [[spoiler: When Uta disguises himself as Sasaki to surprise Mutsuki......he ends up being stabbed repeatedly while Mutsuki begs him to never leave again]].

* CrapSackWorld: Humanity must deal with the constant fear of a predatory species that looks just like them, until they reveal their GameFace and start eating people. However, in reality the majority of Ghouls live miserable lives and simply want to live in peace, killing only because there is no other choice for them. Most are orphaned young, and they live in constant fear of the [[TheHunter Ghoul Investigators]] charged with exterminating them without mercy. The cycle of death and revenge draws in everyone, with very few characters in the series that are genuinely innocent.

* MissedHimByThatMuch: After the TimeSkip, Kaneki has been actively avoiding Hide......who becomes an intern at [[TheHunter CCG]] for the sole purpose of searching for his missing friend. Both end up attending the book signing of Sen Takatsuki, and miss each other by mere seconds. As Kaneki boards an elevator and the doors close, the neighboring elevator opens and Hide steps out.

* HalfHumanHybrid: The main cast are all ghoul-human hybrids working for [[TheHunter CCG]]. The Quinx are labeled "humans with an installed Quinque", though this is mostly semantics with a PowerLimiter keeping their Ghoul traits in check. Sasaki is a straight-forward example, and the prototype used to create the Quinx Surgery. [[spoiler: Takizawa]] is also revealed to have become one.

* TriangRelations: A very messy Type 5. Kanae turns out to be in love with [[KissingCousins Tsukiyama]], who remains obsessed with Kaneki even years later. Sasaki remains unaware of his part in things, having no memory of Tsukiyama and unaware of the reason Kanae [[MurderTheHypotenuse keeps trying to kill him]]. Eto shows up to take advantage of Kanae's increasingly unstable emotional state, encouraging him to act on his jealousy and rage.

In the end, [[spoiler: Kaneki pulls off a gambit to save Tsukiyama......by forcing Kanae to sacrifice her life to save him]].
** Akira, [[BettyAndVeronica Takizawa, and Amon]] make up a complicated Type 7 with equal doses of violence and affection. All three have alternately tried to kill or rescue the others, with loads of unresolved emotions as a result of the men both having been assumed dead for several years.
** A Type 4 ([[LoveDodecahedron at least]]) seems to be developing between Urie, Mutsuki, and Matsuri.

* IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight: Several battles involve trying to bring a comrade back to their senses.
** On Rushima, Amon fights a deranged Takizawa in an effort to bring him back to his senses. While this fails to get through to him, [[spoiler: Akira choosing to shield him and Amon's unwavering faith in him ''does'' finally get through to Takizawa]].
** In Chapter 112, [[spoiler: Saiko and Hsaio fight Urie in order to save him after he Frames Out]].

* DisguisedHostageGambit: Turns out that the clown army which has run amok around Tokyo are [[spoiler: captured humans with mouths sewn shut and helplessly pushed forward to the slaughter]], much to Juuzou´s disgust and dull surprise.

** The ''":Re"'' part of the title is given further meaning in Chapter 86, when [[spoiler:it is revealed that Kaneki is the One-Eyed King]]:
-->[[spoiler:''In many languages, like for example in Maltese, "Re" means "King"'']]

* AManIsNotAVirgin: Averted all over the place. Kaneki and Hide's initial conversation makes it blatantly clear neither one of them has ever been on so much as a date, with Kaneki's first date being the event that triggers the entire series. Likewise, Amon is a ChasteHero that rejects Akira's many advances and is essentially a paragon of masculinity. On the other hand, the only male character with a confirmed sex life (besides the settled-down older Investigators with families) is Nishiki, who is mocked about his sex life and generally treated as a ButtMonkey.

The manga ended at 143 chapters on September 18, 2014, with a total of 14 volumes. A sequel, '''Tokyo Ghoul:re''' began serialization in October 2014. It follows Haise Sasaki, Akira Mado, and members of a newly-formed team of Ghoul-Hybrids created by CCG.

The series has been adapted into two 12-episode seasons by Studio Pierrot. The first season, simply titled '''''Tokyo Ghoul''''', debuted in Summer 2014, and, for the most part, follows the flow of the manga. The second season, '''''Tokyo Ghoul √A''''', debuted in January 2015, but unlike the first season, goes into its own territory, unrelated to the manga.
