* TheBattleDidntCount: You can take no damage and wreck him in under a minute, but you will still be shown as being exhausted and Yukinosuke smugly fine after your first battle with him.



* BlueOniRedOni: Not in terms of personality, really, but Yukinosuke and Kage provide the visual equivalent with ice powers and blue colour theme for the former, fire powers and red colour theme for the latter, and otherwise identical designs.
