Characters: Gravitation
The following tropes can be applied to the characters of the manga and anime series Gravitation.

Shuichi Shindou
Voiced by: Tomokazu Seki (Japanese), Rich McNanna (English)

Yuki: Quiet! I haven't cried in six years and my head is really killing me.
Shuichi: Six years? You're just too cool! As for me, I cry at least once a day. Man, that's just mega-cool! It's like you have a dark past or something! Oh, right. You really do. Hahahaha!

Eiri Yuki
Voiced by: Kazuhiko Inoue (Japanese), Rome Elliot (English)

(to Shuichi) "Because I'm a good guy, I have one more piece of advice. If you don't want to kill yourself, you should probably stay away from Mercedes, SLE's, and SAAB Cabriolets. Because if you get infront of me again, I'll hit you and then back up over you for good measure."

Tohma Seguchi
Voiced by: Ai Orikasa (Japanese), Bill Rogers (English)
  • Affably Evil: When at his worst. Granted, "evil" isn't really the right word for it, but then again, neither is "sane".
  • Always Camp
  • Berserk Button: If you think dressing up as the man who attempted to rape Eiri in order to "heal him psychologically" is a good idea, you've got another thing coming. He goes from Stepford Smiler to an Ax-Crazy Yandere in just a few short panels. Afterward? He's smiling again and brushing his rampage off like it was nothing.
  • Closet Key
  • It's All My Fault: Two words: New York.
  • Manipulative Bastard
  • My God, What Have I Done? When a pregnant Mika gets sick due to stress and has to be hospitalized.
    • To really put it into perspective Tohma was so wrapped up in his business with Yuki that he neglected his pregnant wife, who just happens to be Yuki's older sister. The stress of worrying about Yuki, and the lengths that Tohma would go to in order to do what he perceived to be in Yuki's best interests—including threatening Shuichi's life—put Mika in the hospital. At least Tohma toned it down a bit when he realized he could lose his wife and child if he kept up his antics.
  • Older than They Look
  • Stepford Smiler: And when he isn't smiling? Be afraid.
  • The Atoner: Only in regards to Eiri. Otherwise, he doesn't give a crap, generally.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: At least in the manga sequel.
  • Yandere
