Deadly Upgrade: In A New Transformation TV Special, Shouichi has problem controling power of Burning Form when he first activate it. Ultimately subverted as he manage to control its power and transform into Shining Form.
Cool Sword: GS-03 Destroyer. It's a high-frequency vibration blade and works more like a chainsaw in term of usage.
It's also completely ineffective - G3 never lands a successful hit with it.
Determinator: The G3 system can be worn by others, but it keeps coming back to Hikawa because, even when the chips are down or he's up against forces that greatly outnumber or overpower his own, he won't back down.
The Gunslinger: Japanese police officers don't have carte blanche to use, let alone carry, sidearms - the fact that Hikawa has a revolver on him at all times (and not no candy-ass snub-nose, either) says something.
Handguns: GM-01 Scorpion. Pretty weak, but easy to use, has good rate of fire and can be augmented with the GG-02 "Salamander" Grenade Launcher attachment.
Body Horror: First Rider to invoke it after Shin. Being Gills isn't something anyone would chose of their own free will.
Combat Tentacles: Played with. Gills has no control over his wrist tentacles beyond extension or retraction, and uses them only as striking weapons. Play straight as Exceed Gills, who can fully control them and has another set of tentacles from his shoulders as well.
Glass Cannon: Of a sort - glass doesn't walk it off and come back angry.
Good Thing You Can Heal: In Project G4 movie, he has an arm cut-off, but it regrows when he transform into Exceed Gills.
All There in the Manual: The individual names of the Lords are never given onscreen and can be found in supplemental materials. In fact, they're never even referred to as Lords, but rather as The Unknown.
Canis Latinicus: The naming pattern for the Lords, save for the El. Each name consists of two Latin words: genus + descriptor. Example: Pantheras Luteus = Leopard/Panther Saffron Yellow. Though, as to be expected, some translations can get blurred.
Even Evil Has Standards: They're specifically to target humans blessed with the seed of Agito (those whom have supernatural abilities). Killing normal humans (unless said human had committed murder) is a taboo and the penalty is forced suicide. The Ant Lords somehow bypass this rule.
