* OrganAutonomy: [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever Faudo]] has a number of smaller Mamodos living inside him that run his bodily functions, most notably Unko Tin Tin, the guardian of his digestive tract, and the unnamed operator of his heart. When Faudo is asleep, the heroes pass them without incident and they seem harmless... but when he wakes up, it turns out they're both [[NotSoHarmlessVillain extremely strong]], each requiring a HeroicSacrifice of a GuestStarPartyMember to bring down. Faudo's white blood cells are also semi-sentient and serve as the {{Mooks}} of the arc.

** Parco Folgore also applies, [[spoiler: especially when he protects Goomu and Mir from receiving a major punch from Kanchome after he goes [[DrunkWithPower]] with Shin Poruku. He appears so absurdly muscular in this scene that it's possible that Kanchome's mind is working against him here to unconsciously make Folgore look cooler and stronger than he actually is]].

* BrainwashedAndCrazy: Because of her pacifistic nature, Kolulu was saddled with a second, MUCH more violent personality that manifested whenever her spells were cast in order to ensure her participation in the battle for kingship. However, she is the ''only'' demon who appears to have undergone this treatment, despite there being a few more demons (Rein comes to mind, as well as Momon in his first appearance) who have no interest in fighting, even for the side of good.

* EatingTheEnemy:
** Certain mamodo spells seem to be capable of doing of this. An example is the ancient, [[GreenThumb plant wielding]] mamodo Kalura's spell "Bazu Agurozesu" which creates a giant man-eating rose. It almost consumes Zatch but Wonrei is able to destroy it.
** Faudo is a [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever colossal, living demon weapon]] that was made on the mamodo world but sealed away due to its absurd power. And its digestive system is filled with traps designed to grind intruders and dissolve them into nutrients to fuel itself. It takes everything Zatch and his friends have to avoid these traps as they infiltrate the beast after its reactivation.

Added DiffLines:

* EasilyImpressed: A lot of the mamodo children display this trope since they've been sent to Earth to decide the new king with the last tournament being a 1000 years ago. The mamodo find themselves stunned by earthly things like [[MundaneObjectAmazement TV, video games, and music radios.]] The tiny mamodo Kido is a notable example as no [[RunningGag matter how many times he falls for it]], [[SuperGullible he still gets blown away]] by his book owner, [[{{Troll}} Dr. Riddles]], obviously exaggerated stories only to get devastated when the Dr. Riddles reveals he was just kidding. The protagonist Zatch himself also has this in spades. Early on, Kiyo is able to capture the little kid's imagination with Vulcan, a figure made a noodle box and chopsticks that [[BlatantLies can fire turbo-plux missiles!]] Later on, he even takes Kido's place as the "shockee" from Dr. Riddles tall tales [[spoiler: after Kido's book gets burned.]]

%%* BeamOWar

to:

%%* BeamOWar* BeamOWar: A lot of fights end up being resolved by the combatants firing their biggest spells at each other.



* TheDreaded: There are four demon children considered the natural frontrunners in the battle due to their immense power. They are [[RedBaron Thunder Emperor]] Zeon, the dragon clan prodigies Elzador and Ashuron, and Brago, who had received "Elite Training".



* ExoticEyeDesigns: A lot of attention is paid to the eyes in this series. Concentric rings with the eyes show a person possesses special knowledge. [[note]] Characters with these include Dufort, with his Answer Talker, Sunbeam, with his ability to commune with animals, and Professor Riddles, who is the first person to understand the nature of the books.[[/note]] Eyes drawn more realistically, with detailed cornea, show the person is exceptionally strong willed. [[note]] These are possessed by Zatch, Zeon, Elzador and Ashuron, and Folgore of all people.[[/note]]



* MadeOfIron: Averted the day after his vicious beaten from the school bully kiyo appears fine then we see what he really looks like

** The name Umagon is Kiyo invoking this. Since it loosely means "horse monster" it's no wonder Schneider can't stand the name.



* RealityEnsues: Tooyama sensei in an effort to get back at kiyu for missing so many days took 30 points off for one question that he gave the answer to one of the days he missed The next test tooyama sensei wrote was basically personal questions of his life that no one could answer. He was beat up by his student, The test was thrown out, and Made the vice principle angry
** For a second it seemed that umagon was going to be put on a bus after he found his partner sunbeam. Only for sunbeam to ask kiyu to let him stay as he searches for an apartment that would allow him to keep a horse as a pet.

* RealityEnsues: Tooyama sensei in an effort to get back at kiyu for missing was sick of Kiyo getting perfect scores on tests despite being frequently absent so many days took 30 points off for he made one question that he gave the answer was only covered in class worth 30 points. When Kiyo resolves to one get notes from his classmates, Tooyama makes a full 50% of the days he missed The next test tooyama sensei wrote was basically test's grade come from a question about his personal questions of his life that no one none of the class could answer. He was beat up by his student, The test was is promptly thrown out, out and Made Tooyama gets scolded by the vice principle angry
principal.
** For a second it seemed that umagon Umagon was going to be put on a bus after he found his partner sunbeam. Only for sunbeam to ask kiyu to let him stay as he searches for an Sunbeam. He's back before the day is out since Sunbeam's apartment that would allow won't let him to keep a horse as there.
** On more than one occasion,
a pet.cowardly character finds the courage to stand up to a physically imposing enemy. Said enemy promptly kicks their ass, because being brave doesn't give you muscles.



* RefugeInAudacity: Combined with unpredictably unpredictable, this is how the students determined what was going to be on Tooyama sensei. Sadly it didnít help anyone pass


Added DiffLines:

** Kiyo and Umagon start out as this, since Kiyo is already a book master and therefore can't be Umagon's.


Added DiffLines:

* TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior: The entire premise of the series is this, being basically a massive last man standing battle between children. And that's not even getting into the way some contenders are happy to murder anyone who gets in their way, Zofis brainwashing people en masse, Zeon being willing to commit mass murder just to hurt Zatch, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Keith's smoking.]]


Added DiffLines:

** Subverted on one occasion. After Patty explains how the thousand year old demons partners are being forced to fight, Kiyo and Zatch who had been badly beaten are enraged. They launch a furious counterattack, which completely fails since the two of them were already completely exhausted to begin with.

* SecretTestOfCharacter: Lien's father is hinted to have done one when he held a sword towards Wonrei's face. Though he came off as a overprotective mafia boss, there's no denying that he cares a great deal about his daughter and he would only accept a man capable of standing up to him as her husband/lover.
