- For Science!: While she cares for Momiji, she overall has this attitude in regards to studying her and the Aragami.
- Married to the Job: Causes her divorce and is presumably also the reason why she does not have custody of her child
- Parental Neglect: Self-admitted, too
- Science Hero: She is the team's badass biochemist
- The Smart Guy: Trades off with Yaegashi in this role depending on the episode
- When You Coming Home, Dad?: The female equivalent
- Workaholic: Will sometimes work herself to physical exhaustion
- Improbable Aiming Skills: Her aiming skills are so good she manages to embarrass Koume in one of the omakes when they practice at a shooting range
- The Ace: Is known to be a great sharpshooter
- The Gunslinger: Carries large caliber guns (usually 10mm) even during her off hours, and has much better aim than the TAC's weapons specialist
- The Lancer
- Action Girl: The TAC relies on her to embody this trope when they're out in the field. She does not disappoint.
- Cool Big Sis: Momiji tends to see Koume as this
- Girls with Guns: She is the weapons specialist of the TAC

- Pet the Dog: Koume has a soft spot for puppies
- Real Women Don't Wear Dresses: In the main series, she's the only female in the TAC not to wear a skirt. This changes in the OAV sequel.
- Small Girl, Big Gun: Quite literally. She loves to haul around bazookas, rocket launchers, and semi-automatic weapons
- The Big Guy: The female version of this, she is the TAC's muscle
- Trigger Happy: Her aim is about 50/50, so she will usually make up for it by shelling the entire vicinity

- The Smart Guy: Trades off with Matsudaira in this role depending on the episode
- They Call Me Mister Tibbs: Gets really irritated in the beginning of the series when his new colleagues don't add the honorific "san" to the end of his name and tries on more than one occasion to correct them.
- Took a Level in Badass: Goes from a cowardly techno-geek to a harden member of the team, ready to take on Susano-Oh himself.
Susano-oh and his entourage
