  • An Ice Person: Quite literally is frozen by the Overdevil at first. But is then subjected to the following trope in conjunction with this trope.
  • Big Ham: In Ninja mode. Otherwise The Comically Serious
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: He might be kind of obsessed with Yapan culture and ninjas, but when it's time to do his job, he does it well.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Courtesy of the Overdevil.
  • Calling Your Attacks: He does this whenever he uses the Ninpou.
  • The Comically Serious: It's incredible how he can remain stone-faced even in the most funny situations.
  • Highly Visible Ninja: Gainer hung a lampshade on that in the manga.
    Gainer: An orange suit? Doesn't it kind of stand out?
  • I Did What I Had to Do: His explanation for killing Gainer's parents.
  • Ninja
  • Otaku: A more well-adjusted version than most, though.
  • The Stoic
  • Suicide by Cop: When he falls under Kashmir's control later in the series, and ends up endangering the City Units, he tries to convince Gainer to kill him, even by revealing that he was the one who killed his parents. However, it doesn't work, as Gainer opts for Taking A Third Option.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: An heroic example - he gives priority to the Exodus over everything else. If that means sacrificing some people, or even himself, he won't hesitate - though he won't be proud of it.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Gets one of these from Gain - who actually punches him for his killing of Gainer's parents.

  • Cool Old Guy: Not that old (see below), but he does fit.
    • Apparently this was why he was dropped as a character - he's too cool in a world without many cool adults and was threatening to overshadow the others. (The director even apologized to Hisao Egawa for this.)
  • Disney Death
  • Freudian Excuse: The reason why he's so dedicated to stopping Exodi from taking place? His parents went into one, and he was discriminated and bullied by other children for that.
  • Hot-Blooded
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold
  • Kill It with Fire: One of his Overman's weapons.
  • Manchild: Weird example; he seems to bounce between acting like an immature kid and an extremely stern and capable pilot and leader.
  • Manly Tears: When Adette defends him from his ungrateful underlings, he melts into water works...
  • Parental Abandonment: Quite literally, as the manga reveals.
  • Pet the Dog: During his forced stay in a city unit, he saves an impoverished little girl from being bullied and begins to act as a surrogate father figure to her. He later travels with her to her homeland (if this troper recalls correctly, the country was basically India)
  • Time Stands Still: His Rushrod's Overskill. Sort of; anything that crosses paths with the attack will stop dead in its tracks.
  • Younger Than They Look: He's 32, but looks much older than that.
