Awesome, but Impractical: His strongest move, Photon Burst, requires Aiolia to take some time to change his attack and reach his limit. However, he manages to overcome this in his second fight against Ceos by combining with his Lightning attacks.
Knight in Sour Armor: Subverted. Seems like he would become this when he was marked as the brother of a traitor whom the other knights executed, but he truly cares for his servants and humanity as a whole.
Blond Guys Are Evil: Played with: he's not evil per se, but can be quite the dick to his own allies if needed.
Character Exaggeration: Shaka never denied he was divine and "The Saint closest to a god", but still never instigated or taunted his opponents into revering him as the god he may be, originaly. Here, though, Shaka submits two Giant Titan warriors easily with cosmo pressure, and plays with them saying that he would spare them if they (birthright gods) kneeled and revered Shaka as their god; unsurprisingly they refuse, and Shaka answers accordingly.
