  • Anyone Can Die: This is a death match after all, and there can only be one survivor...
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: Sasamura correctly deduces that Kaminashi will become solid at the moment of attack, so he countered Kaminashi by tripping his feet.

  • Badass Grandpa: Baron Saijou still has the reflexes of a killer despite being past his prime.
  • Barbie Doll Anatomy: FEE has no visible genitalia despite being mostly naked.
  • Clean Cut: Sasamura's sword style is dedicated to the [Void] technique in order to cut his opponent down.
  • Code Name: Each player gets their own title placed next to their names (i.e. "Telekinetic" Tomobiki Rinji VS "Sniper" Baron Saijou).

  • Combat Pragmatist: The Experts are people with plenty of battle experience to fight on parr with their superpowered opponents.

    • Hiiragi Koharu has her survival instincts kicked in when she got hit by a truck at a young age, thus obtaining a body that will allow her to recover from any physical injuries.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: Kaminashi turned out to be quite the delusional lunatic who believes that he brings salvation to good-natured women by killing them, thus "saving" them in a world he perceives as corrupted and rotten.

  • Suicide Attack: Baron swallows a live grenade and forcibly holds Tomobiki in an attempt to take out his target.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: FEE taunts Tomobiki for his failed attempts at using telekinesis on a baseball.
    FEE: You refused to put in any effort because you hate it when things get too difficult, so you don't even bother trying... You decided that it's pointless to enroll into school or find employment right from the start. And you also complain about others for being so lucky despite that of your own luck and circumstances.
  • This Loser Is You: Tomobiki represents frustrated youths in all Japan, if not the whole world: He couldn't get into university, he's stuck with a dead end part-time job, he has an unrequited love interest, and he feels like just about anything pisses him off (including his nonchalant family).
