* DesignatedHero: Or at least, Designated Character-we're-meant-to-like.
** Mutou at first. He assaults and badly injures the judo club captain [[BloodKnight just for the hell of it]], and it's reported that he's been carrying out similar attacks on other students and even teachers at the university. And during the masked rapist incident, Mutou only wants to catch the guy [[SkewedPriorities because of him ruining Mutou's reputation, rather than due to the guy being a rapist]] (although this mentality is shared by the rest of the club, except Ibuki). Once this arc is over, [[SubvertedTrope he has less of these moments]].
** Pedro. The guy's an unrepentant rapist, has attempted to sexually assault Minoru three times, deludes himself into thinking that Minoru's being a {{Tsundere}} towards him, and later has the gall to consider Nana, a girl who has been Minoru's best friend for years and stuck with him through thick and thin, [[{{Hypocrite}} a "depraved stalker woman"]].
* JerkAssWoobie: Kevin Norton, once you learn his backstory.
* UnfortunateImplications:
** The only openly gay character in the series is a former rapist and makes sexual advances towards Minoru nearly every chance he gets, even when Minoru clearly isn't interested in him.
** Virtually all of the foreign characters, from the American soldiers stationed in Okinawa, to Samart, to the above-mentioned Filipino gay male, have ''very'' unfavorable depictions.
** There's also the first transgener character to appear, who is mainly treated as comic relief and whom suddenly stops being treated so nicely once the fact that she was born a he is revealed. The scene is depicted in a way that makes it seem like we should sympathize with the greater cast, who were "tricked" about her "true" gender, rather than the transgender woman who had her pants pulled down in front of a bunch of strangers.
** Let's also not forget the double-standard depictions of sexual assault. When it's a woman being assaulted, it's treated with the utmost seriousness--and rightfully so. When a ''man'' is both the perpetrator and victim however, it's comedy.
