- Arrow Catch: Whether it's one arrow, or a whole clearing full of crossbow bolts all coming at him at once.
- Bow and Sword, in Accord: Wields a longsword, but is a dead shot with a bow.
- Cannot Spit It Out: A particularly severe case, probably due to him being Oblivious to Love for so long.

- My God, What Have I Done?: When he sees Odette dying from his Mistaken Declaration of Love to Bridget. Also, while neither he nor Odette said anything about it, Derek's expression indicates he was thinking this when he realized that the swan he was trying to shoot a few moments ago was actually Odette.
- Oblivious to Love: While the case could be made that Odette had feelings for Derek before they were adults, due to her constant attempts to spend time with him, Derek is 100% blind as a bat to his own feelings for his entire life, up until meeting Odette again in the ballroom. He even comments, "'Til now, I never knew..." during his Love Epiphany.

Number Nine the Cat
