* BadassNormal: Zell Condorbrave in ''Overdose''. Though only human, he and his squadron have fought many a deadman, even killing four of them. In the anime, Brandon before becoming Grave definitely, definitely counts. Brandon can throw a '''mean''' right hook that hits almost as hard as a [[SuperSmashBros Falcon]] [[MemeticMutation Punch]]...

** [[Mika's TearfulSmile and family speech don't make it less ambiguous. The only hint you get regarding Brandon's fate is the credits that follow. But then, the characters look way younger before their time of death except Sherry and Dr. T, and there's a specific pattern in the order of their appearance: Sherry appears first; after that, everything plays in reverse order, depending on who Brandon knows first except Maria, who appears after the old gang. After that, Mika's voice is heard twice: first, before the orphanage flashback (right after Maria's appearance in the credits), she quietly calls out to Brandon; second, after the orphanage flashback, she says, "Okaerinasai/Welcome back/Welcome home."]]
