* CounterpartCombatCoordination: In Nega Nebulus's initial raid on the Imperial Palace, each of the four Elements ([[BlowYouAway Sky Raker]], [[MakingASplash Aqua Current]], [[PlayingWithFire Ardor Maiden]] and [[DishingOutDirt Graphite Edge]]) lead the attack against the boss who shared their ElementalPowers. The result was a disaster, and in the aftermath Ardor Maiden (who'd been assigned to Suzaku) instead began developing a LavaPit technique [[OpponentSwitch for use against the slow-moving Genbu]].
* DualBoss: Capable of rapidly buffing and healing each other from long distances, making them nigh-invincible unless the gods in all four locations are battled at the same time.
* TheFourGods: A straight example.
* GateGuardian: Each boss is a BeefGate who sleeps in an altar on the path to one of the [[TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon Imperial Palace]]'s four gates, emerging when a Burst Linker draws near.
* ItCanThink: The Four Gods appear to display actual ''hate'' towards Burst Linkers, and are capable of remembering their past encounters and learning from them.
* WalkIntoMordor: Jumping or flying into the Imperial Palace is normally impossible due to its moat's strange gravity, forcing invaders to go through one of the Four Gods.

!!Genbu of the North



* {{Foreshadowing}}: Before the Four Deities are properly introduced, Inti is briefly mentioned as a powerful boss that [[LeeroyJenkins Graphite Edge]] once tried to defeat by luring it out of its normal grounds and into a lake.

%%* BreathWeapon
* LevelDrain: Its most feared attack is a [[HomingProjectile homing]], [[UnblockableAttack unblockable]] projectile [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin named "Level Drain"]] which causes any avatar struck by it to rapidly bleed Burst Points. That alone is bad enough, but once their Burst Points hit zero, contact with the projectile causes it to explode, stunning them and permanently reducing their CharacterLevel by 1.
* MakingASplash: The guardian corresponding to the element of Water.
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: Described as combining traits of Eastern- and Western-style dragons.
%%* ShockAndAwe
* ThatOneAttack: Its LevelDrain attack makes it the most feared of the Four Gods InUniverse. In fact the level 6 Blood Leopard, as part of her plans to fight Seiryū in future, keeps enough points in reserve to level up ''twice'' just so that she can survive as long as possible before the effects kick in.

Instead, Suzaku spawns ''before'' Crow enters its territory in order to intercept him.

When Mihaya was twelve her father likewise succumbed to [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dilated_cardiomyopathy a heart condition]], leaving Mihaya both the café and his prized motorcycle.

The main character, a short, overweight boy with severe self-esteem issues mainly caused by not only his appearance, but also being viewed as an outsider A second-year at Umesato Junior High School. An encounter who is very popular among the other students thanks to both her looks and passive personality. She becomes interested in Haruyuki and gives him the chance to enter the Accelerated World to fight alongside her. During school, she is known for being very calm and caring but still impatient and ill-tempered and not always using her head.

She is actually the Black King, formerly one of the original pure colored kings, who went into hiding, Like the others she is one of the strongest players in the game
with Kuroyukihime, however, changed his life, as he slowly discovers his power to stand up for himself.a level 9 avatar. She is considered a traitor by other Burst Linkers.



* AccidentalPervert: He repeatedly ends up in situations where he accidentally gropes or sees undressed one of the girls. This actually gets PlayedForDrama when [[spoiler:Seiji uses a visual mask to lead him to the girls' shower room while Chiyuri is taking a shower as part of a trap to blackmail Haruyuki - Chiyu realizes that Haru was tricked, but knows that he could be expelled if word got out]].
* AdaptationalUgliness: A downplayed example. While Haru isn't physically attractive in the light novels, the anime exaggerates Haru's character design to match his self-image, making him much more cartoonish. In the books, he's only a few centimetres shorter than Takumu, who in turn is taller than Chiyu.
* {{Adorkable}}: He's insecure, socially awkward and a very cute and endearing little guy.
* AffectionateNickname: Takumu and Chiyuri call him Haru.
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: He is viewed as an outsider from his school because of his appearance.
* AllYourPowersCombined: [[spoiler:After becoming the sixth Chrome Disaster, he synchronizes so strongly with the Armor that he can use the abilities of its past hosts. However, [[HowDoIShotWeb he isn't familiar with these abilities' strengths and weaknesses]], which comes back to bite him.]]
* AnimalMotifs:
** A literal flying pig.
** As well as a crow given the name of his avatar is Silver Crow.
* ApologisesALot: He has the habit to apologize for every single thing, even if it's not his fault.
* AttackReflector: Develops the "Optical Conduction" ability in volume 12 as an extension of silver's use in mirrors, growing crystals on his arms which can reflect or CatchAndReturn light-based attacks.
* BadassAdorable: Insecurities aside, he's also a sweet, caring boy. [[BewareTheNiceOnes Just don't dare hurt his friends]].
%%* BashBrothers: With Takumu.
%%* BathtubBonding: With Kuroyukihime in the second OVA.
%%* BattleCouple: With Kuroyukihime.
* BeadyEyedLoser: He's a short, fat boy with very beady eyes and when the series starts he's a loser who is a target of Araya and his gang's bullying.
* BigFun: Once he starts to gain more self-confidence, Haruyuki becomes a gentle, friendly and fun fat little guy, but hardly boisterous.
* BookDumb: Haru's grades aren't especially good, but he's really quite intelligent. It's indicated that he doesn't have the energy or focus for long study sessions, [[note]]his grades go up slightly once he starts using burst points for his homework; he can do several hours' worth of work in one half-hour in the Accelerated world. Taku says in exasperation that if Haru had that kind of focus in all his school work, he'd be top of the class[[/note]] and he fears that he'll never be able to get into the same high school as Kuroyukihime.
* BrokenAngel: [[spoiler:In book 3 after Noumi steals everything from him, even his wings.]]
* CallOfTheWildBlueYonder: The reason why his avatar manifested [[WingPull wings]]. Initially Haru just wants to fly away from his problems, but [[GrewASpine as he grows in confidence]] he shifts towards a straighter example of this trope, admiring birds and loving the sky for its own sake. This culminates in the birth of his second-order Incarnate technique "Light Speed", which lets him activate Crow's wings through sheer force of will.
* TheChampion: For Kuroyukihime. Haruyuki makes his goal to help her achieve level 10 so he can protect her and repay her for changing his life by giving him the Brain Burst. It's actually part of Haru's CharacterDevelopment that he's trying to make himself worthy of being her knight.
* ChekhovsSkill: After a failed attempt to use Crow's ChargedAttack "Headbutt" at the very start of his career, Haru declares it AwesomeButImpractical and falls back to simple punches and kicks from then on. As a result no one outside Nega Nebulus knows that Crow even has this attack, which allows Haru to gain the upper hand against Wolfram Cerberus (a linker who studied his fighting style) when he tries to defeat Crow by crushing him in a bear hug.
* ChildhoodFriends: He has been friends with Takumu and Chiyuri since they were living in an apartment complex as children.
* ClassicalAntiHero: At the beginning of the story, Haruyuki is a pathetic loser with no self-esteem and plagued with self-doubt. He gets '''much''' [[TookALevelInBadass better]] thanks to CharacterDevelopment and eventually evolves into a proper hero.
* ContrastingSequelMainCharacter: If you consider ''LightNovel/AccelWorld'' the SpiritualSuccessor to ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'', Haruyuki is quite a contrast to Kirito. Kirito was a lean, confident, loner badass whereas Haruyuki is a fat, wimpy kid who tends to rely on his friends. WordOfGod is that the big difference between them is that Kirito was strong on the outside, but weak on the inside. Haruyuki is weak on the outside, but strong on the inside. In a more meta-sense, Kirito might exemplify the gamer's ideal image whereas Haruyuki more-or-less represents the gamer's reality. Despite this, the two were pretty evenly matched when they fought each other in a non-canon bonus chapter.
* ConfusionFu: After people start to get used to Crow's {{Flight}} ability and he can no longer rely on DeathFromAbove {{Diving Kick}}s to carry him to victory, he develops the "Aerial Combo" fighting style - [[SpamAttack a furious barrage]] of close-range attacks which use his flight ability in short bursts in order to micro-dodge and attack from unpredictable angles.
* CounterAttack: In volume 6 Kuroyukihime teaches him the basics of Guard Reversal, aka the "way of the flexible" - a martial arts technique for catching the force of opponents' attacks and redirecting them.
* CyberCyclops: Silver Crow. Though it's actually a visor covering a proper face.
* DeclarationOfProtection: He made a vow to support and protect Kuroyukihime as her "pawn" in the Brain Burst game.
* {{Determinator}}: You'd think losing a hand & having your body filled full of holes would stop anyone. Not this guy though. According to Chiyu, this has been one of his defining characteristics since early childhood; he just didn't use it for anything besides mastering games until now.
* DiscardAndDraw: [[spoiler:In the Dusk Taker arc, Silver Crow lost his wings to Dusk Taker, caught by his surprise attack. He then is taught how to use a powerful ability called Incarnate System by Kurasaki Fuuko (Sky Raker), and is given her Enhanced Armament, Gale Thruster (a jet-pack). He gives Gale Thruster back to her after defeating Dusk Taker, but he keeps the ability he learned.]]
* DistractedByTheSexy: In the manga chapter, he doesn't quite perform up to his usual level in the first set because he's distracted by the hem of Kuroyukihime's skirt. He doesn't dare admit this, though.
* DivingKick: Becomes Crow's SignatureMove for a while after he first unlocks his Flight ability.
* DontYouDarePityMe: His primary motivation for [[TookALevelInBadass Taking a Level in Badass]] is so his friends Chiyu and Taku don't have to feel sorry for him. Unfortunately, this is also part of the reason why he distanced himself from his friends around the start of middle school.
* DraggedByTheCollar: By Blood Leopard from the cafe straight to the Akihabara.
* DreamsOfFlying: The "calibration dream" Haru has after installing Brain Burst features a flying bird made out of light, {{Foreshadowing}} Silver Crow's abilities.
* ElementalRockPaperScissors: Silver Crow gains the elemental properties of the metal silver, rendering it resistant to piercing, slashing, [[PlayingWithFire fire]], [[AnIcePerson ice]], and [[PoisonousPerson poison]] attacks; but [[AchillesHeel vulnerable]] to crushing attacks and [[ShockAndAwe electricity]].
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: When he's introduced, Haru receives a message from Araya demanding that the former buy him food or he will hurt him. Depressed about school, as usual, Haru escapes into the bathroom during lunch and plays a squash game, in which he has the high score. All this shows that Haru's a victim of bullying with terribly low self-esteem, and an impressive gamer.
* FatalFlaw: His lack of self-esteem causes a variety of problems for him, often holding him back in battle and occasionally causing tension with his friends.
* FighterMageThief: Silver Crow is the Thief to Cyan Pile's Fighter and Lime Bell's Mage.
* {{Flight}}: His avatar's special ability in the Accelerated World, and apparently the first one to be able to do so.
%%* FourTemperamentEnsemble: Phlegmatic.
* FragileSpeedster: Silver Crow's general fighting style, until he grows wings, which turned him into a GlassCannon. Accelerated World's hits operate on real world's principles (adding speed to your punches increases power) and he is really fast, to the point of being able to break the sound barrier. The "fragile" part comes from how his defenses are quite weak for a metal type, and he generally survives by avoiding damage.
* {{GIFT}}: Notable by its absence - he's one of the few people who acts exactly the same in Brain Burst as he does in real life. WordOfGod says this honesty is the reason for his ChickMagnet status.
* GiverOfLameNames: After coming up with a technique that creates cutting energy around his forearm to extend his reach, he decides to call it... Laser Sword. This is immediately mocked.
* GlassCannon: After he grows wings.
* GodlikeGamer: Played with. While at first he seemed like your run-of-the-mill newb with CripplingOverspecialization that made him a FragileSpeedster, but then he's revealed to have natural talent and learns how to activate his wings (implied to be an Incarnate Skill which is very difficult to master), making him one of the few Burst Linkers who can fly and as a result one of the most dangerous Burst Linkers.
* GoodOldFisticuffs: Silver Crow relies on punching his opponents rather than using blades.
* GrewASpine: As part of his CharacterDevelopment, Haruyuki starts to gain self-confidence and finds the courage to stand up for himself.
* GuiltComplex: He has very little self confidence, and tends to blame himself when bad things happen. His friends have to reassure him that it's not his fault.
* TheHero: Part of his character development is becoming of one these proper; both in helping others like Kuroyukihime and overcoming obstacles in his path.
* HeroicSelfDeprecation: Even as he's making a name for himself in Brain Burst, Haruyuki thinks nothing great about himself and he'd still shy away from all the praise.
* ICantBelieveAGuyLikeYouWouldNoticeMe: The main reason why he can't reciprocate Kuroyukihime's feelings is that he can't believe such a beautiful, popular girl like her would actually give him a chance.
* InnocentlyInsensitive: Since he believes that a girl like Kuroyukihime is out of his league, he tends to unintentionally refuse her affection and make her feel insecure about their relationship.
* InsecureLoveInterest: Despite his feelings being blatantly reciprocated, Haruyuki still thinks a girl like Kuroyukihime is out of his league and she deserves someone better than him.
* InvisibleParents: His parents divorced when he was about 8, and he hasn't seen his father since. While his mother has sole custody of him, she spends most of her time at work, apart from a few briefly mentioned parts in which she hands him his money in the light novels. She has about 30 seconds worth of screen time in the entire anime.
* JumpedAtTheCall: He considered installing Brain Burst for about three seconds. Kuroyukihime had a speech all ready to convince him but it was unnecessary. Even she's surprised at how eager he is.
* LadyAndKnight: He's striving to be the knight of his legion master Kuroyukihime.
* {{Leitmotif}}: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SBszwa3Tzzw "Silver Wing"]] in the anime. While [[spoiler:Crow is using Gale Thruster]] it's replaced by [[AutobotsRockOut a remix]] titled [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VnoTqrzp-6c "Iron Will"]].
* LethalJokeCharacter: Silver Crow. Above-average speed but terrible stats everywhere else, and its supposed {{Finishing Move}}s are just normal punches, kicks and headbutts. Then Haru figures out how to [[WingPull activate Crow's wings]], giving him SuperSpeed {{Flight}} that turns even regular punches into killing blows. ''[[NextTierPowerUp Then]]'' he gains access to a proper FinishingMove from another source, [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill which can be used while flying]].
* LightEmUp:
** In his battle with Wolfram Cerberus it's revealed that half of the damage dealt by his "Headbutt" SpecialAttack is light-based, making it useful against enemies with strong physical defences.
** His Incarnate abilities like Laser Sword and Light Speed are based around the image of beams of light. In volume 9 he uses Incarnation [[MundaneUtility simply to illuminate his surroundings]] and flush [[CastingAShadow Black Vise]] out of hiding.
* LoserProtagonist: He starts out as this, being a short overweight boy with zero self-confidence who gets bullied at school and pretty much has no friends. He gets much better through CharacterDevelopment.
* LovableNerd: He's short, fat, socially awkward, and gets beaten up by bullies regularly. Once he gains some self-esteem, however, he quickly reveals himself as a Determinator.
* MistakenForGay: He and Takumu share a rather HoYay moment in Episode 21 and the girls around them seem to be misinterpreting the situation.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone:
** After bluntly saying that he believes that Kuroyukihime is only hanging out with him because she hates herself, angering her to the point where she calls him an "idiot" rather than a "fool," slaps him and breaks down in tears, he realizes how [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness uncharacteristic of her]] this is.
** He also has this reaction after realizing that his boasting that Taku could never defeat him was a serious blow to Taku's pride as a Burst Linker.
* NaiveNewcomer: He does some dumb things due to his inexperience. He once leveled up his character without earning more points first, which since it made him lose a lot of his points it put him in danger of losing Brain Burst for good if he lost them all.
* NiceGuy: He's kind, selfless and supportive of his friends.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: He looks very different compared to the other character designs, having a very short, doughy, and round character design.
* NotDistractedByTheSexy: Downplayed. When Scarlet Rain attempts to infiltrate Nega Nebulus by pretending to be his second cousin and acting deceptively cute, it doesn't take him too long to check if she ''is'' really his second cousin.
* ObliviousToLove: He takes it to a new level by finding signs that Kuroyukihime does like him and refusing point blank to even consider it. This is justified because of his low self esteem.
* OrdinaryMiddleSchoolStudent: He's just a normal and unlucky middle school student until Kuroyukihime introduces him to the Accelerated World.
* ParentalIssues: Implied in the [=OVAs=], and hinted at more strongly in the eighth volume: [[spoiler:Haru believes his parents divorced because of him]].
* ParentalNeglect: It's indicated that his mother doesn't care much about him, and his father cares even less. That said, she does pay his allowance, not bother him about his grades and allows his friends to stay over, so Haru doesn't complain lest he risk the status quo.
* PersonalityPowers: Gained his flight ability from his desire to escape from bullies. After some introspection, he decides that his wings ultimately exist to let him fly ''to'' somewhere - the gift Brain Burst truly gave him was [[{{Determinator}} the will to reach out and keep moving forward]].
* PowerLossMakesYouStrong: [[spoiler:He has his Flight ability stolen by Dusk Taker. Before he regained them, it allowed him to notice that the value of his Duel Avatar lies not in said ability, but in himself, gaining confidence (the lack of which was the main cause for him not being able to use Silver Crow to his full potential) in the process.]]
%%* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Kuroyukihime and Takumu's blue.
* RunningGag: underplayed. Being "cracked in the real" (having your real life identity exposed to another Burst Linker) is considered one of the most catastrophic things that can happen to you, just short of losing Brain Burst. Haru has done this ''by sheer accident'' several times. This culminates at the school festival in vol 13; he introduces [[spoiler: Niko and Pard to Rin outside the gates, realizing [[OhCrap too late]] that they will all automatically assume that 'my friends from gaming' is code for 'Burst Linker'; which he then compounds by introducing them to his entire Legion. Granted, Pard is Current's Child, and Ash is Sky Raker's, but he's cracked the Prominence Leadership and the newest members of his own Legion to a member of Great Wall. Luckily, it all works out due to everyone being chill about it, and leading to a temporary alliance when Rin falls ill from the ISS kit. Utai even thanks Haru in a quiet moment; she's looking forward to having Niko as a friend, given that as a partial red type she's sure they'll get along, and she'd like to have a Burst Linker friend her own IRL age.]]
* SempaiKouhai: He constantly refers to Kuroyukihime this way, and abused by Noumi through TermsOfEndangerment.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: The Sensitive Guy to Takumu's Manly Man.
* SingleTargetSexuality: despite his ICantBelieveAGuyLikeYouWouldNoticeMe mindset, he's utterly devoted to Kuroyukihime romantically. It's stated in more than one book that she "is the person Haruyuki loved and respected more than any other".
* SquareRaceRoundClass: Haru is skilled at {{First Person Shooter}}s, but Silver Crow is [[CloseRangeCombatant focused entirely on melee]] and controls more like a character out of a FightingGame. He comments that he's a little jealous of "Perfect Match" players whose avatars let them apply their existing skills, and used to wish he received a [[LongRangeFighter Red avatar]] instead.
* StockLightNovelHero: Haruyuki partly fits this trope. He was once an OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent, albeit a very unattractive one with a NonStandardCharacterDesign, who finds his life changed forever when he gets introduced to Brain Burst, an augmented reality game. As a Burst Linker, Haruyuki gains PoweredArmor and fights other Burst Linkers. While he's fairly pathetic at first, he soon discovers he's one of the only Burst Linkers to have a Duel Avatar with ''wings'', giving him the ability to fly and a huge advantage over everyone else. As the series progresses, he also acquires an UnwantedHarem of girls fawning for his attention.
* SuperPoweredEvilSide: [[spoiler:In the latter part of Dusk Taker arc, Noumi's brutal beatdown on Cyan Pile makes Haru so supremely pissed that it temporarily awakens the piece of [[TheCorruption Chrome Disaster]] hiding on Silver Crow's back. The result is a crimson BattleAura, similarly-colored incarnation attacks and a major case of '''''[[UnstoppableRage flipping the hell out]]'''''. As lucky as Noumi is, however, the duel timed out before anyone could gain the upper hand.]]
** [[spoiler:This later becomes a standard part of his arsenal.]]
* TinyGuyHugeGirl: Tiny Guy to Kuroyukihime's Huge Girl. He barely reaches to her waist.
* UglyGuyHotWife: While they aren't married, he has this with Kuroyukihime. Haruyuki is a fat midget and just not attractive in the conventional sense, while Kuroyukihime is a beautiful AloofDarkHairedGirl who somehow loves him regardless of his looks. Haruyuki himself has a very hard time believing his luck.
* UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny: In the volume 10 side story "Versus", Haruyuki fights [[LightNovel/SwordArtOnline Kirito]]. Who won? [[spoiler: Neither. Did you actually expect anything less?]]
* WingedHumanoid: His avatar Silver Crow can grow wings making him this.
* WingPull: Silver Crow has a set of retractable fins (replaced by sheets of HighTechHexagons in the anime) which slow his fall, and can be used to fly by expending his special move gauge. In volume 8 he develops the second-order Incarnate technique "Light Speed" which transforms them into bird wings made of PureEnergy, allowing him to fly even when his meter is empty.
* YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre:
** Haruyuki has ''zero'' self-confidence and he thinks he can only be pitiful loser, at least until Kuroyukihime tells him of the great potential she sees in him and how she believes he will become the greatest Burst Linker of all. Haruyuki then decides that even if he still can't believe in himself, he can believe in Kuroyukihime's faith in him.
** Chiyu also tells Haru this when he meets with her at her apartment, telling him of all the nice things he did for her and he doesn't have to feel so bad about himself.
* YouAreNotAlone: He tells Kuroyukihime that she's not alone after learning [[spoiler:how her sister betrayed her and manipulated her into killing Red Rider]], promising to stand with her as she reunites Nega Nebulus, builds it even larger, and finally confronts [[spoiler:her sister]].

All this shows that Haru's a victim of bullying with terribly low self-esteem, and an impressive gamer.
* FatalFlaw: His lack of self-esteem causes a variety of problems for him, often holding him back in battle and occasionally causing tension with his friends.
* FighterMageThief: Silver Crow is the Thief to Cyan Pile's Fighter and Lime Bell's Mage.
* {{Flight}}: His avatar's special ability in the Accelerated World, and apparently the first one to be able to do so.
%%* FourTemperamentEnsemble: Phlegmatic.
* FragileSpeedster: Silver Crow's general fighting style, until he grows wings, which turned him into a GlassCannon. Accelerated World's hits operate on real world's principles (adding speed to your punches increases power) and he is really fast, to the point of being able to break the sound barrier. The "fragile" part comes from how his defenses are quite weak for a metal type, and he generally survives by avoiding damage.
* {{GIFT}}: Notable by its absence - he's one of the few people who acts exactly the same in Brain Burst as he does in real life. WordOfGod says this honesty is the reason for his ChickMagnet status.
* GiverOfLameNames: After coming up with a technique that creates cutting energy around his forearm to extend his reach, he decides to call it... Laser Sword. This is immediately mocked.
* GlassCannon: After he grows wings.
* GodlikeGamer: Played with. While at first he seemed like your run-of-the-mill newb with CripplingOverspecialization that made him a FragileSpeedster, but then he's revealed to have natural talent and learns how to activate his wings (implied to be an Incarnate Skill which is very difficult to master), making him one of the few Burst Linkers who can fly and as a result one of the most dangerous Burst Linkers.
* GoodOldFisticuffs: Silver Crow relies on punching his opponents rather than using blades.
* GrewASpine: As part of his CharacterDevelopment, Haruyuki starts to gain self-confidence and finds the courage to stand up for himself.
* GuiltComplex: He has very little self confidence, and tends to blame himself when bad things happen. His friends have to reassure him that it's not his fault.
* TheHero: Part of his character development is becoming of one these proper; both in helping others like Kuroyukihime and overcoming obstacles in his path.
* HeroicSelfDeprecation: Even as he's making a name for himself in Brain Burst, Haruyuki thinks nothing great about himself and he'd still shy away from all the praise.
* ICantBelieveAGuyLikeYouWouldNoticeMe: The main reason why he can't reciprocate Kuroyukihime's feelings is that he can't believe such a beautiful, popular girl like her would actually give him a chance.
* InnocentlyInsensitive: Since he believes that a girl like Kuroyukihime is out of his league, he tends to unintentionally refuse her affection and make her feel insecure about their relationship.
* InsecureLoveInterest: Despite his feelings being blatantly reciprocated, Haruyuki still thinks a girl like Kuroyukihime is out of his league and she deserves someone better than him.
* InvisibleParents: His parents divorced when he was about 8, and he hasn't seen his father since. While his mother has sole custody of him, she spends most of her time at work, apart from a few briefly mentioned parts in which she hands him his money in the light novels. She has about 30 seconds worth of screen time in the entire anime.
* JumpedAtTheCall: He considered installing Brain Burst for about three seconds. Kuroyukihime had a speech all ready to convince him but it was unnecessary. Even she's surprised at how eager he is.
* LadyAndKnight: He's striving to be the knight of his legion master Kuroyukihime.
* {{Leitmotif}}: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SBszwa3Tzzw "Silver Wing"]] in the anime. While [[spoiler:Crow is using Gale Thruster]] it's replaced by [[AutobotsRockOut a remix]] titled [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VnoTqrzp-6c "Iron Will"]].
* LethalJokeCharacter: Silver Crow. Above-average speed but terrible stats everywhere else, and its supposed {{Finishing Move}}s are just normal punches, kicks and headbutts. Then Haru figures out how to [[WingPull activate Crow's wings]], giving him SuperSpeed {{Flight}} that turns even regular punches into killing blows. ''[[NextTierPowerUp Then]]'' he gains access to a proper FinishingMove from another source, [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill which can be used while flying]].
* LightEmUp:
** In his battle with Wolfram Cerberus it's revealed that half of the damage dealt by his "Headbutt" SpecialAttack is light-based, making it useful against enemies with strong physical defences.
** His Incarnate abilities like Laser Sword and Light Speed are based around the image of beams of light. In volume 9 he uses Incarnation [[MundaneUtility simply to illuminate his surroundings]] and flush [[CastingAShadow Black Vise]] out of hiding.
* LoserProtagonist: He starts out as this, being a short overweight boy with zero self-confidence who gets bullied at school and pretty much has no friends. He gets much better through CharacterDevelopment.
* LovableNerd: He's short, fat, socially awkward, and gets beaten up by bullies regularly. Once he gains some self-esteem, however, he quickly reveals himself as a Determinator.
* MistakenForGay: He and Takumu share a rather HoYay moment in Episode 21 and the girls around them seem to be misinterpreting the situation.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone:
** After bluntly saying that he believes that Kuroyukihime is only hanging out with him because she hates herself, angering her to the point where she calls him an "idiot" rather than a "fool," slaps him and breaks down in tears, he realizes how [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness uncharacteristic of her]] this is.
** He also has this reaction after realizing that his boasting that Taku could never defeat him was a serious blow to Taku's pride as a Burst Linker.
* NaiveNewcomer: He does some dumb things due to his inexperience. He once leveled up his character without earning more points first, which since it made him lose a lot of his points it put him in danger of losing Brain Burst for good if he lost them all.
* NiceGuy: He's kind, selfless and supportive of his friends.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: He looks very different compared to the other character designs, having a very short, doughy, and round character design.
* NotDistractedByTheSexy: Downplayed. When Scarlet Rain attempts to infiltrate Nega Nebulus by pretending to be his second cousin and acting deceptively cute, it doesn't take him too long to check if she ''is'' really his second cousin.
* ObliviousToLove: He takes it to a new level by finding signs that Kuroyukihime does like him and refusing point blank to even consider it. This is justified because of his low self esteem.
* OrdinaryMiddleSchoolStudent: He's just a normal and unlucky middle school student until Kuroyukihime introduces him to the Accelerated World.
* ParentalIssues: Implied in the [=OVAs=], and hinted at more strongly in the eighth volume: [[spoiler:Haru believes his parents divorced because of him]].
* ParentalNeglect: It's indicated that his mother doesn't care much about him, and his father cares even less. That said, she does pay his allowance, not bother him about his grades and allows his friends to stay over, so Haru doesn't complain lest he risk the status quo.
* PersonalityPowers: Gained his flight ability from his desire to escape from bullies. After some introspection, he decides that his wings ultimately exist to let him fly ''to'' somewhere - the gift Brain Burst truly gave him was [[{{Determinator}} the will to reach out and keep moving forward]].
* PowerLossMakesYouStrong: [[spoiler:He has his Flight ability stolen by Dusk Taker. Before he regained them, it allowed him to notice that the value of his Duel Avatar lies not in said ability, but in himself, gaining confidence (the lack of which was the main cause for him not being able to use Silver Crow to his full potential) in the process.]]
%%* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Kuroyukihime and Takumu's blue.
* RunningGag: underplayed. Being "cracked in the real" (having your real life identity exposed to another Burst Linker) is considered one of the most catastrophic things that can happen to you, just short of losing Brain Burst. Haru has done this ''by sheer accident'' several times. This culminates at the school festival in vol 13; he introduces [[spoiler: Niko and Pard to Rin outside the gates, realizing [[OhCrap too late]] that they will all automatically assume that 'my friends from gaming' is code for 'Burst Linker'; which he then compounds by introducing them to his entire Legion. Granted, Pard is Current's Child, and Ash is Sky Raker's, but he's cracked the Prominence Leadership and the newest members of his own Legion to a member of Great Wall. Luckily, it all works out due to everyone being chill about it, and leading to a temporary alliance when Rin falls ill from the ISS kit. Utai even thanks Haru in a quiet moment; she's looking forward to having Niko as a friend, given that as a partial red type she's sure they'll get along, and she'd like to have a Burst Linker friend her own IRL age.]]
* SempaiKouhai: He constantly refers to Kuroyukihime this way, and abused by Noumi through TermsOfEndangerment.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: The Sensitive Guy to Takumu's Manly Man.
* SingleTargetSexuality: despite his ICantBelieveAGuyLikeYouWouldNoticeMe mindset, he's utterly devoted to Kuroyukihime romantically. It's stated in more than one book that she "is the person Haruyuki loved and respected more than any other".
* SquareRaceRoundClass: Haru is skilled at {{First Person Shooter}}s, but Silver Crow is [[CloseRangeCombatant focused entirely on melee]] and controls more like a character out of a FightingGame. He comments that he's a little jealous of "Perfect Match" players whose avatars let them apply their existing skills, and used to wish he received a [[LongRangeFighter Red avatar]] instead.
* StockLightNovelHero: Haruyuki partly fits this trope. He was once an OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent, albeit a very unattractive one with a NonStandardCharacterDesign, who finds his life changed forever when he gets introduced to Brain Burst, an augmented reality game. As a Burst Linker, Haruyuki gains PoweredArmor and fights other Burst Linkers. While he's fairly pathetic at first, he soon discovers he's one of the only Burst Linkers to have a Duel Avatar with ''wings'', giving him the ability to fly and a huge advantage over everyone else. As the series progresses, he also acquires an UnwantedHarem of girls fawning for his attention.
* SuperPoweredEvilSide: [[spoiler:In the latter part of Dusk Taker arc, Noumi's brutal beatdown on Cyan Pile makes Haru so supremely pissed that it temporarily awakens the piece of [[TheCorruption Chrome Disaster]] hiding on Silver Crow's back. The result is a crimson BattleAura, similarly-colored incarnation attacks and a major case of '''''[[UnstoppableRage flipping the hell out]]'''''. As lucky as Noumi is, however, the duel timed out before anyone could gain the upper hand.]]
** [[spoiler:This later becomes a standard part of his arsenal.]]
* TinyGuyHugeGirl: Tiny Guy to Kuroyukihime's Huge Girl. He barely reaches to her waist.
* UglyGuyHotWife: While they aren't married, he has this with Kuroyukihime. Haruyuki is a fat midget and just not attractive in the conventional sense, while Kuroyukihime is a beautiful AloofDarkHairedGirl who somehow loves him regardless of his looks. Haruyuki himself has a very hard time believing his luck.
* UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny: In the volume 10 side story "Versus", Haruyuki fights [[LightNovel/SwordArtOnline Kirito]]. Who won? [[spoiler: Neither. Did you actually expect anything less?]]
* WingedHumanoid: His avatar Silver Crow can grow wings making him this.
* WingPull: Silver Crow has a set of retractable fins (replaced by sheets of HighTechHexagons in the anime) which slow his fall, and can be used to fly by expending his special move gauge. In volume 8 he develops the second-order Incarnate technique "Light Speed" which transforms them into bird wings made of PureEnergy, allowing him to fly even when his meter is empty.
* YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre:
** Haruyuki has ''zero'' self-confidence and he thinks he can only be pitiful loser, at least until Kuroyukihime tells him of the great potential she sees in him and how she believes he will become the greatest Burst Linker of all. Haruyuki then decides that even if he still can't believe in himself, he can believe in Kuroyukihime's faith in him.
** Chiyu also tells Haru this when he meets with her at her apartment, telling him of all the nice things he did for her and he doesn't have to feel so bad about himself.
* YouAreNotAlone: He tells Kuroyukihime that she's not alone after learning [[spoiler:how her sister betrayed her and manipulated her into killing Red Rider]], promising to stand with her as she reunites Nega Nebulus, builds it even larger, and finally confronts [[spoiler:her sister]].
