The author's predictive powers can be pretty mystifying. How did the author know that Airi was white-haired? (Her hair color was confirmed in a piece of official artwork released with Volume 2 of Kazumi, a short time after the character appeared).
Magnificent Bastard: KyuBey is back, and so is his foresight and penchant for making underailable plans.
Memetic Badass: Homura may or may not be heading this way, after gunning down a very, 'very' large number of TorBeys without powers. Later she's taken to running around with a pair of magical guns, KO'ing people in her sleep, and terrifying the general population with but a simmering glare.
The Woobie: VPuniverse!Madoka who gets dropped in the canonverse and contracts to save canonSayaka, going through the same hellish time loops Homura went through. At least she has the VPuniverse!Homura for support.
