** In a odd subversion of the common [[TheOjou spoiled princess]] who can't be bothered to names of others, Bertille uses Takahiro's [[FullNameBasis full name]] even in normal conversation for a time after they meet. Takahiro finds it rather odd and even asks her why, never getting an answer, though it doesn't seem to be a jab of any sort.

* DeathFromOverwork: He doesn't die, but Noel's father collapses from a heart attack mid argument due to a combination of a weak heart, working too many long hours recently and agitation over his daughter's jousting.



* HeroicRROD: He doesn't die, but Noel's father collapses from a heart attack mid argument due to a combination of a weak heart, working too many long hours recently and agitation over his daughter's jousting.



* {{Padding}}: Bertille's route devotes an abnormal amount of time to essentially meaningless training. Later, after the tournament failure, there's a long stretch of largely pointless harem hijinks with Alice and Bertille fighting over Takahiro including teaching Bertille to swim and a rather lengthy tennis match before we're suddenly back to jousting again.

* SarcasticDevotee: Anne and Emma spend most of their time making fun of her as providing real assistance. However, they obviously do care and are usually the ones to get upset when people are unpleasant to Bertille, who normally shrugs off insults without stooping to her opponent's level.

* SakuraGirl: Mio has long pink hair, a bright disposition and the character for Sakura in her name.



* SatelliteCharacter
** Reina is more defined by her relationships with Celia and Lisa than anything else. Without them, you just have a vaguely nice, fairly attractive third year girl with no particular goals, abilities or outstanding points.
** Fiona is Lisa's obnoxious, bratty friend and little else. If the story isn't focusing on Lisa directly then she simply vanishes from the story without a trace.
** Anne and Emma exist to be Bertille's fangirls. They don't appear separately or have anything to do apart from revolve around her even in the fandisk that gives them a little more personality.

* SecretlyWealthy: Takahiro assumes that Noel must be fairly wealthy if she's in the knight class, but she actually has an even bigger mansion than Celia, whose family is quite prominent. She's almost royalty. That said, this turns out to be status and not actual wealth. Her family is somewhat on the decline, though not to the extent that her family has any notable debts or anything.



* SheCleansUpNicely: Bertille is always beautiful, but when dressed up Takahiro is surprised that actually looks cute, which changes her image quite a bit.



** Reina really supports Lisa and Takahiro, as do Kyle and Akane. Mio and Ayako find the idea of him with Noel fascinating and pester him about it after he goes on a date with her early on. Mireille in particular seems to look forward to having Takahiro for an older brother.



* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: In a manner of speaking, given that becoming a begleiter and becoming his knight's boyfriend always seem to be roughly the same thing for Takahiro. Noel requested Takahiro as her begleiter even though those like Kyle have better grades because she sees him take excellent care of his horse every morning and get excellent results out of it in exchange. Given that she lost in the first round of the tournament the year before because her horse wasn't being cared for properly, this quite impressed her. She directly compares the experience to LoveAtFirstSight.
* SkilledButNaive
** Lisa is talented, but her stubbornness and inability to depend on others makes it easy to see through her strategies.
*** [[spoiler:In Celia's route, Celia has some trouble with Noel but walks all over Lisa in the finals because she's always so predictable.]]
*** In her own route [[spoiler:she loses to the greatly inferior Reina because while skilled, she's unused to opponents at her own level and is unused to having to predict their actions, which makes her performance even worse.]]
** Akane's attacks are direct, powerful and accurate, but they're also too easy to read. If Takahiro devotes himself to defense, she's absolutely unable to score any points off of him. [[spoiler:During her rematch with Celia, she and Takahiro agree that she shouldn't even bother with any kind of tricky strategies since she's just so unsuited for them.]]
* SmugSmiler: Noel has multiple smug grinning trollfaces.
* SmugSnake: Fiona is awfully arrogant for someone with no abilities of her own. [[spoiler:She's actually been stealing Lisa's techniques, so she isn't actually that weak, but as everyone important points out that just makes her a bad copy of Lisa.]]



* StaticCharacter: Compared to some of the other characters like Lisa or Takahiro, Celia never really changes much because she already has a stable, positive personality as well as the proper attitude towards jousting and competition.
* TheStoic: Akane is always rather calm and serious, even when joking around. However, she tends to fangirl around Celia and turns into a motormouth when trying to confirm if Takahiro is really dating her. She gets embarrassed if anyone sees her doing anything girly or soft since she wants to be seen as calm and collected, which appears to be an attempt to contrast herself with her sister.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Bertille's armor mostly only covers her upper body, which from the perspective of weight and covering what is likely to actually be hit is rather efficient in a way... but it also leaves her thighs rather exposed for everyone to see, which the announcer comments on. One of her lackeys takes pride in how only Bertille can shamelessly wear such embarrassing armor.
* StudentCouncilPresident: Celia, among other exemplary traits, is the president of the student council and considers it natural to have the entire student body memorized.



* SugarAndIcePersonality
** Lisa isn't very social, so she tends to be quiet and rather aloof sometimes.
** According to his friends, Takahiro's emotions can be tricky to read, so they really want to see him go deredere just once. When he finally goes deredere, it's not for his girlfriend Noel. No, it's for her little sister and her sheer imouto aura.
** Akane isn't unfriendly, but she does tend to be slightly aloof from her friends because she won't ask for help and has oddly formal speech. When she and Takahiro inevitably start dating, she's pretty mushy, which is especially effective on Takahiro given her normal stoicism.



* SupremeChef: Bertille is an amazing cook, so she can't help laughing to herself when she hears that Takahiro's knight will be chosen by a cooking contest. After all, there's not much else she could hope to beat Celia or Noel at.
* SweetTooth: Akane likes cakes and whatnot, which normally wouldn't stand out. However, she freaks out when she realizes Takahiro and Lisa saw her buy one, considering her desire for normal sweet food to be disgraceful.
* TaughtByExperience: Takahiro makes an excellent begleiter because he knows how knights think and behave, having been one himself. If he takes up jousting again, his experience as a begleiter also improves his jousting.
* TheTease
** Noel is quite the tease, enjoying harassing girls and flirting with Takahiro equally. How serious she is is questionable: She does seem to like Takahiro, but assumes he's dating Mio and isn't one to steal other people's boyfriends. Further, she's pretty easy to tease herself, much to her annoyance.
** Alongside her normal trolling, Satsuki offers to 'help' Takahiro sleep with Akane.

* ThrowingOffTheDisability: [[spoiler:At the end of Noel's route, Mireille finally manages to stand up again because of course she does. Even though Noel lost, she was inspired by her courage to keep going even at a disadvantage.]]
* TookALevelInKindness: Fiona is less evil in the fandisk, even going so far as to ask Takahiro to be Lisa's begleiter. Which kind of entirely contradicts her established personality but just go with it. The pair actually acts something like actual friends as well, something that wouldn't have been possible in the original.
* TragicDream: Mireille wanted to become a knight, but she lost the use of her legs.



* {{Troll}}: Fiona does her best to piss people off so she can start fights. Surprisingly enough, Bertille manages to absolutely shut down her attempts, frustrating her in return.
* {{Tsundere}}
** Though normally rather cool and polite, Lisa reacts poorly to Takahiro and is more hostile towards him. He's not really sure what the problem is since he didn't know who she was before her match with Akane and after it barely spoke two words to her. She also doesn't want to admit that she was worried about Mio after she was challenged to a duel. Takahiro isn't the greatest at picking up tsundere signals even though it kinda seems like she wants him to notice without her having to say it.
** In the fandisk both Bertille and Fiona move into tsundere territory: Bertille's pride is played up while Fiona is actually made into someone who wouldn't get punched in the face during every conversation she ever has.



* UnskilledButStrong
** Celia is not entirely unskilled, but she's capable of cruising along at the top with sheer speed and strength. People are very surprised to see her using feints and more complex tactics with Takahiro as her begleiter.
** This gets turned around in the tournament finals. [[spoiler:Lisa's brute strength approach and simple tactics leads to her getting flattened when she goes up against someone that's at her own level. This happens even in her own route because even if she has a begleiter, as a jouster she still lacks experience.]]



* TheWorfEffect: Akane is used as a sort of measuring stick. She's in the upper ranks of the A rank jousters and is thus someone that is often used to test the ability of those like Noel or Lisa.
* WorkingThroughTheCold: Akane hides that she has a cold during the tournament preliminaries. She still wins easily, though later she feels bad about not trusting Takahiro enough to tell him.



* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Mio's hair is bright pink and Lisa's is white. Most of the rest of the cast have various shades of brown or blond hair, though Anne and Emma are red and green.

* ObliviouslyBeautiful: Celia doesn't get much romantic attention because people are generally too intimidated to make an attempt, so she's largely unaware that most people consider her extremely attractive.
* ObliviousToLove: Akane seems mildly amused when Takahiro says he isn't popular. To be fair, setting aside Mio, just being friends with girls and having them interested in you are not really the same thing. Though she could simply know about girls that we don't see.
* OddNameOut: Most of the names are English, but Julianus is a Roman name. The proper descended form in England would be Julian.
* TheOjou: At one point Takahiro notes to himself that Noel is probably rich given that jousting is a rich man's sport, but not much mention is made of the wealth of the girls most of the time. However, Bertille gets standard silly ojou speech patterns and even does the ojou laugh, much to Takahiro's consternation. In the fandisk she gets her own rival Alice and they have ojou fights together.
* OnlyFriend
** Lisa makes friends with Mio and to a lesser extent the group surrounding her, but Fiona remains linked to Lisa alone. Even setting aside her new friends, Lisa is also close to Reina, even if Fiona doesn't like her.
** Celia is rather isolated at school. While everyone admires her, her only friends are Reina and potentially Takahiro. As such, she's generally uninvolved with the events of other routes because she just isn't close to anyone in the group.
* OutOfFocus: Mio stops directly interacting with Takahiro for much of Lisa's route because she doesn't want to make his girlfriend jealous. She still appears in a few crowd scenes, but most of the scenes where she'd have appeared are generally filled in by Kyle or Akane. Noel pretty much disappears entirely after awhile.
* OvershadowedByAwesome
** Bertille is either in the upper ranks of the B group or even an A rank jouster, but Celia is an S rank, Lisa is a genius, Noel is intentionally underrated and Akane is good enough to make Celia work for her victory. As such, it's really hard for her to stand out unless we're talking about how embarrassing your armor is to wear. More&More indicates that this is an issue based in her well meaning but ultimately incapable assistants and the inefficient training she undergoes. However, she's never given the chance to go up against any named character apart from Alice in a real match so it's hard to say how good she actually is with proper instruction.
** Kyle is often referred to as a begleiter equal to or superior to Takahiro, but he doesn't get the chance to stand out very often because he prefers to work with students that have a lot of untapped potential, meaning they don't perform particularly well in the tournaments even after he firmly guides their growth.



* PassiveAggressiveCombat: Fiona makes some rather nasty backhanded compliments at Bertille, who is generally too gracious to stoop to her level. Or too oblivious.



* PrincessCurls: As a ridiculous ojou, Bertille gets to have ridiculous ojou hair. Her hair is also invincible, able to repel water and gravity alike.



* RelationshipSabotage: Fiona does her best to sabotage Lisa's relationships with anyone else, from friends to lpossible begleiters or lovers.

* ReluctantFanserviceGirl: Akane always dresses modestly and wears pretty much the only armor that isn't custom built to show off her breasts, but she ends up dragged into a beauty contest during Celia's route where she's busy dying of embarrassment on stage while Bertille hams it up and Celia just kind of sails through things with her normal dignified attitude.



* RenaissanceMan: Bertille has a surprisingly wide - and random - range of abilities. She can cook and play tennis at semi professional levels, but can't swim. She's highly knowledgeable about various types of food, but has never eaten a crape. Her conversations with Alice also imply a further range of abilities that she never gets a chance to show off, which comes to the surprise of everyone, especially Anne and Emma.



* TheRival: After Mio defeats Bertille in a duel, the latter cheerfully claims Mio as her rival.



* RoseHairedSweetie: Mio is very bright and cheery.
* TheRunaway: When Noel's father drags her aside to tell her that she needs to stop jousting and dating Takahiro, Mireille tells Takahiro not to give up on her even if she treats him coldly. Apparently she doesn't know her sister very well because the next day she shows up Ayako's restaurant with a change of clothes. Noel may be many things, but a doormat is not one of them.

* {{Jerkass}}
** Fiona is kind of a dick to everyone but Lisa, and even then she's not exactly nice to her either. She tries to monopolize Lisa's time and overrule her opinions, sabotages her relationships, taunts the very kind Bertille and is generally simply unpleasant to everyone for absolutely no reason. There's also the implication that she simply picks fights with other students so that Lisa will defeat them in a duel on her behalf. [[spoiler:It's actually worse than that: Fiona picks fights so she can steal Lisa's techniques.]]
** Celia's brother Julianus is obsessed with victory and cast Takahiro aside after a single loss. The first time he sees him after abandoning him he simply says "Oh, you still exist huh?" What a charmer. Celia is rather upset to see what a dick he is.



* JustFriends: Setting aside Akane as a fandisk exclusive romaceable character, both Noel and Mio are more considered to be Takahiro's friends than anything. Noel seems to assume he's already dating Mio unless he goes out with Lisa or Celia and corrects her mistake like that while in her route she's quite pleased when her misunderstanding is cleared up earlier than that.

* KindheartedCatLover: Lisa may be prickly, but she adores the stray cat she named Sasami. Contrasting her, her jerky friend Fiona actually seems to be afraid of cats.
* KissingCousins: Ayako was PromotedToLoveInterest in the fandisk. She's his cousin, is viewed as an older sister figure and occasionally mothers him.
* LargeHam
** Kyle is always overly dramatic. His friends have given up on reacting to it.
** Bertille is silly and overly dramatic about everything, but since she's generally a nice person people don't really mind.



* LethalChef
** Takahiro doesn't want to start eating until he's sure Mio didn't cook the food she brought him. However, this isn't because she's bad at everything, but only because she's fond of experimenting but has no sense whatsoever, so she does things like put wasabi inside of sweets or chocolate inside rice balls.
** Noel can't cook, but she's genre savvy enough to know that that means she needs help if she wants to make breakfast for Takahiro, so she asks her little sister for help.



* LittleSisterHeroine: Mireille is so well behaved, kind and cute that everyone wants her for a little sister. She actually starts referring to Takahiro as her onii-sama even, causing him to spoil her rotten.



* MasterOfTheMixedMessage: Takahiro says a lot of things to Lisa that could come off as flirty and are taken as such but are generally not actually ''meant'' as such.
* {{Miko}}: Akane's family runs a shrine, but her older sister tends to take care of rituals for the most part. Akane is still used to wearing the clothes and taking care of tasks like cleaning the shrine, however.



* MySisterIsOffLimits: Julianus is angry at Takahiro for acting as Celia's begleiter, though he doesn't realize they're dating. [[spoiler:When he does finally figure it out after Celia's surprise victory, he can intellectually support the idea since he had shown his approval of Takahiro years ago but emotionally it's still difficult.]]



* NewJobAsThePlotDemands: Ayako seems to fill in most of the job related roles for the story. She's the single teacher we actually see, she's the school nurse and she runs the local cafe Tart Time after hours. Apart from that, she also takes care of Takahiro. When she does she sleep?
* NiceGirl
** Mio is very kind and social, so even people like Lisa have a hard time turning down her requests.
** Takahiro is actually amazed at how nice Bertille is. She refuses to rise to the Fiona's bait and calmly accepts her sarcastic 'compliments' and 'apologies.' When Fiona tries to be more direct, she just smiles and says she has her values and Fiona has hers. In More&More Fiona is nicer than in the original game but she's still completely unable to handle Bertille's benevolent attitude.
** Ely is very bright and friendly. She even remains completely supportive of Takahiro despite turning her confession down without a second though.
* NoblewomansLaugh: Takahiro dies a little inside when Bertille actually goes Ohohohoho!
* NoIndoorVoice: When Bertille thinks she's laughing quietly, her voice reaches across the entire campus. Also, whenever she gets excited she begins talking very loudly, generally causing some accidental innuendo in the process.
* NotSoStoic: Akane is always calm and serious unless she needs to fangirl Celia, at which point she'll worship her intention to try to break an egg.
