"I am Kira, and I have come to answer the grievances of the people of Japan against the Britannian Empire. For seven years, Japan has been brutally oppressed to satisfy the greed, ambition, and imperialistic tendency of Britannia, but now I am putting an end to that oppression. The Britannian Empire must pull their forces out of Japan in 52 hours from now. If they do not, I will kill the Emperor and his children. And to demonstrate my power, I will take the lives of two of Britannia's agents of propaganda. They will die for spreading lies and misinformation for the sake of the occupation and to make it clear that even the Emperor is defenseless against my power."Zero vs Kira

- Classified Information: Which is easily accessed via geass command or supernatural notebook.
- Colliding Criminal Conspiracies: Kira's presence has really screwed up Zero's plans.
- Contrived Coincidence: somehow a porthole Rem opened and a porthole the Britannian military opened connected, sending Light to the Code Geass world.
- Crazy-Prepared: Light and Lelouch
- Crazy Survivalist: Light.
- Criminal Mind Games: Zero, did you know Shinigami love apples?

- Decadent Court: Like in Code Geass canon the Brittanian royal family. After killing the Emperor and his heirs Light has a hard time finding someone competent enough to serve as his puppet.

- Did We Just Have Tea with Cthulhu?: Cecile upon realizing that the guy In the Hood she just got a glimpse of was Kira and that he is offering them protection in exchange for her and Lloyd's obedience.
- Do Not Adjust Your Set: Light sends a message to the media informing everyone that if the Brittanian forces don't leave Japan Kira will kill the royal family. Lelouch realizes afterwards that since there was no chance of Brittania ever bowing to such a demand the message was actually meant for him and his Black Knights.

- Full-Circle Revolution: In chapter 6, Zero holds a press conference telling Kira that he has simply "substitute(d) the tyranny of the Britannian Empire with your own."
- It does settle an years-old argument: Lelouch is morally superior to Light because he truly believes "Only those who are willing to be killed should be allowed to kill", while Light just kills whoever annoys him.
- In addition, the Black Knights come to the conclusion that, ultimately, Kira's "justice" is draconian, does not allow the Japanese people to judge their own in a fair trial, and may even extend to death for the least serious of crimes. Even Kallen, who was originally a staunch supporter of Kira, changes her view when she realizes that her own mother, whose only crime was drug abuse, is at risk of being killed by Kira.
