* DamselScrappy: Natsuko in all her appearances except for the [[ADayInTheLimelight beginning of volume 12]], (and then she's back to that role in her next appearance). Her last kidnapping even caused Yakumo to be [[TrappedByMountainLions trapped inside a spiritual barrier]] for the largest part of a volume.
* IronWoobie: Pai/Parvati. Last of her race [[spoiler: (that's not sealed away somewhere anyway) and she thinks she's to blame for it.]] Doesn't stop her being a GenkiGirl to the max.
* NightmareFuel: Averted with Parvati. The third eye looks so cute, this can only happen in Manga style...
* TheScrappy: Haan. He spends most of the series feeling out of place (being TheRival of Yakumo, an uncommonly uncompetitive and cool headed hero for a shonen manga), and once he finally finds his place [[spoiler: he is already dead. From then on, we are treated to his clone, his corpse, and the CloningBlues that follow]].
* TooCoolToLive: [[spoiler: Connery. Even the remains of his memory is deemed as too much of a power-up for Yakumo.]]
* TheWoobie: Thanks to ParentalAbandonment. [[spoiler: Mama-san reveals that Yakumo's not really the nice guy that he is out of kindness, but more out of fear of being abandoned again...well, that was how it started, anyway.]]
