* IndecipherableLyrics

to:

* IndecipherableLyricsIndecipherableLyrics: Especially when he sings in English, but even his Japanese lyrics aren't easy to decipher even for people who speak the language, in part because, being from Kyoto, he speaks in a weird dialect, and in part because he dropped out of school, meaning he never completely learned to speak his own language correctly in the first place.

* DyeHard: Has gone through a wide range of hair colors, ranging from black, brown, orange, red, purple and ''[[RealMenWearPink pink]]''



* FanNickname: Kyo-chan.[[note]]Comes from fans who find his [[FunSize small physique]] and delicate features cute.[[/note]]



* OneOfUs: Likes Manga/{{Doraemon}}, collects Franchise/StarWars merchandise, plays video games (and has a lot of them), and has a an odd liking for ice cream [[note]]It's odd, because ice cream is made from milk, [[BerserkButton one of his biggest dislikes]].[[/note]].



* PromotedFanboy: He is a fan of Music/{{Kuroyume}}, and was a roadie for the band in his early days in the scene.



* WhyFandomCantHaveNiceThings: The FunnyAneurysm moment, mentioned above, in addition to an UnpleasableFanbase. It has pretty much died down in recent years, though he very rarely responds to fan mail.
** Surprisingly, he is rather active on Facebook, being the one who posts most of the official updates for his band.

* ManlyTears: While Kyo sings many of his songs in a wailing, weeping like manner, there are times when it's obvious that it isn't part of his act. There are several live performances where he is visibly in tears.

* IncrediblyLongNote: One of the masters of this in the modern Japanese metal scene. There are only five Japanese vocalists who can come close at holding a note as long as Kyo does - [[ToshimitsuDeyama ToshI]] of Music/XJapan, Ryuichi Kawamura of Music/LunaSea, Eizo Sakamoto of Anthem, Koshi Inaba of B'z and Music/YamaB ex Music/{{Galneryus}}.

* {{Bishonen}}: Arguably so
** {{Biseinen}}: Oh yes.
* BornUnlucky: He had a fire extinguisher swung into his head, almost got alcohol poisoning the first time he drank, got into a motorcycle accident, got involved in a car accident (this time, it was because of bandmate Die sleeping on the wheel), had ear problems (and remained partially deaf in his left ear), contracted infections from having his eyebrows pierced, got hit by a girl, got hit by a guy in the rugby team, tripped over one of the crewmen who were cleaning up his vomit, is vertically challenged compared to the rest of his bandmates, and seems to be getting sick often. He also broke his throat many times in his musical career.
** There is also a recorded video of him collapsing on stage; the band initially thinking it was part of the show. Also, he had plans of getting married, only for his bride-to-be to walk out on him the day of the planned wedding. She ended up marrying one of Kyo's now ex-friends who was also a musician. Kyo candidly explained this incident as the inspiration for the song "Taiyou no Ao".



* FanNickname: Kyo-chan.[[note]]Comes from fans who find his [[FunSize small physique]] and [[{{Bishonen}} delicate features]] cute. [[BerserkButton Kyo doesn't really like the nickname that much, it seems]].[[/note]]

* FunnyAneurysm Moment: He didn't take a suicidal fan's message seriously. Said fan eventually committed suicide...
** [[spoiler:News of the suicide scarred him for life, and is frequently cited as one of the reasons he rarely responds to fan mail.]]



* {{Jerkass}}: Was this to his bandmates in his early years, especially when he's fooling around or trying to get their attention, and sometimes [[ForTheLulz for no reason]]. Has led to his ButtMonkey status.
* LongHairedPrettyBoy: Back in the day...
