* MeanCharacterNiceActor: In his early days and the early days of the band, his role was "cartoon monster" + aggressive dominant leather daddy + Music/{{Kiss}}-style demon, to yell at the audience and get them worked up (sometimes even by ''directly insulting'' them), while singing dark lyrics about sex, murder, drugs, and whatever else Yoshiki could put into a song to make it shocking and angsty enough. Offstage, he was and is actually relatively quiet, even more truly shy than Yoshiki (as seen in the interviews where Yoshiki does all the talking or most of it, and what with Yoshiki being the FaceOfTheBand post 2008, and with a comparison of how many posts he makes to his FaceBook -and his avoiding other social media entirely - as compared to Yoshiki's far more prolific posting and network presence) and seemingly an all around NiceGuy.

* FunnyCharacterBoringActor: Is this, to some extent, in the good sense of boring - relative stability and being a down to earth person aware of himself and not being a raging alcoholic/drug addict or AttentionWhore.



* OldShame: His entire solo catalog from 1997 until 2010, due to its having been created at Masaya's behest for recruitment and fundraising purposes for the sect. So much so that he has begged fans not to pay money for any of those works because it goes to the people who hurt him and are actively trying to hurt others.
** When he joined the sect, he insisted his {{Music/X Japan}} work was this.

* ColdBloodedTorture: He alleges that Masaya and Kaori repeatedly inflicted intense beatings and violent physical assaults, combined with intense emotional and verbal abuse. It falls under this trope because of its repeated nature and use as a tactic to break him down and keep him a compliant member of the sect.

He was hospitalized, suffering from "intercostal neuralgia" and mutism as side effects from psychiatric injury and injury to his larynx and chest muscles from physical overwork. He physically couldn't sing, all activities were put on hold until he arrived in LA for the filming of XJapan's PV ''Jade'', where he was only supposed to move his lips from not being able to sing...
