* UsefulNotes/AustralianSlang: Capable of speaking normally, and no comment has ever been made on his accent or lack of one. The inside of his head, though, is filled with Australian slang.


* TryingToCatchMeFightingDirty: Is not adverse to kidnapping, taking hostages or injuring girls. Seeing as his twin sister is more vicious than him, that could count as pragmatism rather than misogyny.

* '''BadAss''': All of them are trained to know several combat techniques to use whenever dueling isn't an option, as well as sharp dueling skills.
** BadassBiker: Most of them ride on D-Wheels. Those who don't, find equally cool methods of high-speed mobility. Such as dragon-riding.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: She is the sole villain that scares Chase, because her plans are cunning, she scares the crap out of his boyfriend and she herself has injured Chase out of spite more than once, plus her propensity towards torture... and that she probably knows where he sleeps.

* HeroesOfAnotherStory: A lot of the spin-offs tend to happen simultaneously with the main storyline told by either Chase or Seika. So most of the time, one adventure is happening the same time as another due to the Arcadia Movement being a world-wide organization.
* [[HeroWithBadPublicity Heroes With Bad Publicity]]: The Arcadia Movement sometimes suffers from this because of some unfortunate incidents that have happened throughout history, as well as in real life. They are a secular organisation of people with HiddenPowers,

* NomDeGuerre: Every Psychic Duelist has a code-name , or could be assigned one to be used. Their details are therefore all registered under that codename, up to and including all intelligence and training records. Presumably the Movement's solution to any SuperRegistrationAct, seeing as even if access to their files would become publicised, there would be no way to link the file back to any Psychic without the Who's Who of the entire Arcadia Movement.

There are presumably no photographs, and the Who's Who is limited per chapter, hence there is no universal list.



* OddlySmallOrganization: Subverted. They are a world-wide organization, there are about one million members total. The reason why we don't see that many is because of the system of operation: upon achieving control enough to function in normal society, the Psychic Duelist may choose to pay off their debts to the Movement - because, obviously, the Movement is not a charity - and return to society as a HiddenBadass. Therefore, the Central Movement alone technically has about two thousand or so members at any time, including the Knights of Arcadia, archiving, administrative, security and recruitment staff, though in trouble they can call upon a force of ten thousand 'civilian' Psychics. Seeing as the odds are about one in a million, their rather eclectic community could be explained as part of work; reaching out to Psychics might require quite a bit of raw manpower in the beginning, but with accumulation of resources the manpower needed could be cut. It would also meant that Psychics who don't wish to use their powers or who don't wish for a permanent affiliation with the Movement could leave after the Movement's duties towards that Psychic is discharged.
** Recently revealed that part of that population is made up of Changelings.

These guys are TheFairFolk of this universe, and our antagonist organisation. They're mostly divided into the warring Summer and Winter Courts, with those outside the Courts known as "wild." They are ruled by a Byzantine series of laws and restrictions that govern how various members of each Court can act, but they have become masters at working within these restrictions. For example, as a rule they CannotTellALie, but they're absolutely ruthless [[RulesLawyer Rules Lawyers]] about ExactWords, and being in debt to one is... bad, to say the least. They range in power from the relatively harmless (pixies, fairies, etc) to the greater-than-godlike (the monarchs). Luckily for the PunyEarthlings, all have an AchillesHeel: they cannot reach the earth without a mortal shell. In general, tropes that cover them include:

* SoBeautifulItsACurse: On top of being a Class V Psychic Duelist, the Prince Charming Ryuusei Fudo is also written as incredibly hot, until everyone who sees him falls for him. This might sound nice until you find out that when he was young, he was nearly targeted by a pedophile masquerading as his kindergarten teacher, in middle school two girls stabbed each other over him, and in high school his stalker tried to off his friendly senior and his own best friend in a fit to draw Ryuusei's attention, and that later a woman killed herself over being perceived as ugly by him. He has an aura that draws almost everyone to him, but their very obsession over him drives them insane. It's been referred to as ''[[EverythingSoundsSexierInFrench je nais sais quoi]]'' by Setsuka before.

* ArtisticLicenseEconomics: The Movement is funded by the Shimotsuki family's inheritance. For ten years? Worldwide?
*** Averted. The Central Movement themselves take tax breaks, receive a stipend from the governments as a result of being declared allied with the City Council of Neo Domino, own properties, and is assumed to supply extra security if paid to do so under the work-for-board scheme. And they also work with the law enforcements in the cities they are based in, or are assumed to. Chase even paraphrased part of the process as 'having sneaky ways to get paid more'.
* ArtisticLicenseLaw: Happens a lot with the Movement. The Arcadia Rights Bill of 20XX, only in Neo Domino, apparently allows the Movement to commit summary execution on any rogue Psychic. Meaning that a Psychic could be killed without a trial. The Arcadia Rights Bill is also used to press Psychic Duelists in Neo Domino into service alongside law enforcement just by proximity, but this last one is barely ever used.
** Amongst fifty thousand Psychic Duelists, only about a thousand are active members that work for the Movement. Fifty or so have advanced combat training. Assuming that the population of Neo Domino is about five million, this means that about 1% of the population of Neo Domino is Psychic, but only 0.02% to police it for Psychic crimes, and 0.001% to have advanced combat training. Not too shabby, but also means that the Movement is quite stretched in Neo Domino. Although it's implied that the Castle has its own defence systems...
*** Firearms is included under the classes covered in advanced combat. This is rather strange with the fact that Japan's strict anti-gun law means that guns are somewhat extraneous. Hardly extra when the concept of other branches is brought up. The reason for teaching guns in a country that doesn't allow civilians to have guns is so as to mitigate the extra training needed for those going to countries with guns.

* OutGambitted: The Madame clearly wanted Seika to inherit the Movement - perhaps, not realising what the workload of the Movement could do to a young psyche - and so, made the contents of her will out to 'her daughter'. She also counted on Setsuka to obey her whims to help Seika. Clearly, the Madame wasn't expecting to die so soon after beginning the adoption process for Seika, and afterwards Setsuka did obey... by throwing Seika to a normal family named the Fudo family, and thereafter keeping Seika and all details of Seika away from the Arcadia Movement so that she could revamp in peace. The result was that Seika ended up not going through the TrialByFire meant for her by the Madame, but instead having part of a loving family that she never got to experience, while Setsuka took her place and the financial power Seika would have gotten. A combination of SpannerInTheWorks and this, I guess.
