* SarcasmMode: Ash feels really guilty about making Rumisiel uncomfortable by changing in front of him given all that he's doing for him. [[http://www.misfile.com/?date=2016-07-01 You can see it in his face.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ToBeLawfulOrGood: Ironically, Ash and Emily are on opposites sides of this. Referencing an all too TruthInTelevision issue among public schools in the US where textbooks, usually of history, are written by authors who present ''their own opinions as fact'', and the teacher ''likes'' the author and then presents that material on tests ''also as fact'', forcing students who actually know the '''correct''' answer to choose to either get a better grade by outright lying on their exam papers, or provide the ''factually correct'' answer and then getting a worse grade. There is lots of independently verified testimony that this issue goes all the way through the highest tiers of college. [[DramaticallyMissingThePoint Politicians ranging from the President to the local school-board always insist that the problem is purely the fact that schools aren't getting enough money.]]

to:

* ACupAngst: Missi.Missi is upset about her small chest, and complains about it to Ash and Emily.



* ArtEvolution: Over the years, the main characters (of both sexes) have filled out and/or bulked up noticeably, proportions a little more accurate, the clothing '''''a lot''''' more detailed, and the anime-style eyes have become much smaller (with their mouths getting ''much'' larger as compensation).

* BerserkButton: Vashiel gets one that's closer to a 'Berserk Light Switch' from how quickly he can turn it on and off. When Cassiel comes calling and he's the only one home, he ''[[http://www.misfile.com/?date=2006-04-20 threatens to wreck Satan to get to her]]'' if she brings any harm to Rumisiel or Ash. From Cassiel's reaction to his reminder not to forget his history, and the simple fact that he can't lie or deceive, ''he fully means every word of it.'' The [[http://www.misfile.com/?date=2006-04-21 next page]], he turns on a dime back to his polite self and offers to get the door for the now terrified Cassiel.

* BrilliantButLazy: While Ash is a talented driver, he has no motivation to do anything beyond drifting through life, not even attempting to fix the Misfile beyond yelling at Rumisiel. This could be because the Misfile happens to be his go-to excuse when confronted on his behaviour.

** Potentially, there's a window after the Misfile is corrected where Ash needs to get used to being a guy again. Missi's feelings and how they are affected by him being a boy, his relationship with Emily as well as with his mother, James (who [[spoiler: she had sex with but]] he was just friends with), dealing with Kate (who cooled her jets a lot toward Ash because Ash was a girl), on top of getting used to NOT walking into the girls locker room and other such everyday things. There's a lot of comic to cover, even after the Misfile's fixed; at least a good year's worth, if the author wants to go that route.
* FanService: And lots of it.

* FountainOfYouth: Emily, though on a much smaller scale than usual.due to having two years of her life removed in the misfile.



** [[SecondLawOfGenderBending 2nd Law Of Gender Bending]]: Averted thus far. Ash does ''not'' enjoy being a girl. Even though in some ways it has arguably improved his life (like his relationship with his mother), Ash is very much a boy on the inside, and hates that his body does not reflect his inner identity. However, some in the fanbase believe that beneath the surface, Ash really does enjoy his bent gender, and simply can't admit it yet.

** Ash passes the manhood litmus test on that count, though, as according to the tagline for ''Film/MadeOfHonor'', "it takes a real man to become a maid of honor."

* PhlebotinumBreakdown: There are signs that the Misfile is becoming unstable. Missi's had erotic dreams of Ash, as a boy, but can't see his face, and Ash's "Monster" is starting to have major engine problems, for parts that were supplied by his mother due to the Misfile.

* StrawMisogynist: Averted, notably, with the Arthur arc (starting [[http://www.misfile.com/index.php?page=1597 here.]]) Arthur is a significantly more common type of misogynist; he doesn't try to tell Ash to StayInTheKitchen, but he refuses to see her as ''anything'' but dating material, cannot wrap his head around the idea of hanging out with a girl platonically, and is generally an objectifying ass.

Mixing street racing, girl-bonding, and car tuning sessions with angels, supernatural weirdness and the trials and tribulations—from getting hit on by guys to bras—of a boy suddenly transformed into a girl, ''Misfile'' defies simple categorization as the two heroines struggle to deal with the craziness that has taken over their lives while trying to get Rumisiel back into heaven so he can fix his mistake. Complications arise, of course, not the least of which is Rumisiel's [[LazyBum perpetual slacker]] nature.

* ArmoredClosetGay: While the applicability of the word 'gay' to Ash is debatable, Ash still pretends to be a straight girl because she is afraid that coming out of the closet as a girl will carry over to her male life when the misfile is eventually corrected.
