* ChessMotifs: The queen. Starts off as a pawn but becomes the strongest piece on the board. Her code name, Q-1, is the old-fashioned (i.e., pre-algebraic) shorthand for the square the white queen begins the game on. However, unlike an actual chess queen, her primary role is to stay by the king's (Lelouch's) side and protect him; like a chess queen, she's perfectly capable of attacking should the need arise.

* ExpositoryHairstyleChange: Kallen used two different hairstyles ([[http://i34.tinypic.com/2djcq6t.jpg loose, straight and long-ish when she's at Ashford Academy]], [[http://i37.tinypic.com/2yor902.jpg spikier, slightly shorter and with a headband]] when with the Black Knights) during the series, to avoid having her cover blown.

* FieryRedhead: In keeping with standard anime coloring themes about [[LawOfChromaticSuperiority ace pilots and the color red]], Kallen has red hair, wears a red plug suit (several different ones, ''all'' red) and pilots a Red mecha named the Guren (Crimson Lotus).

* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: She triggered the landslide during the Battle of Narita (under Lelouch's orders), which inadvertently destroys a city as well... resulting in the death of of Shirley's father, Joseph. This sets in motion a chain of events that will forever change the lives of both Shirley and Lelouch... [[spoiler:ultimately resulting in the former's murder at the hands of Rolo and Lelouch's subsequent ThanatosGambit, the "Zero Requiem".]]

* Foreshadowing: His interactions with Shin in Akito the Exiled proved to be this in R2 that after the death of Euphie, he hates the world and wants to destroy it with the White Reaper inside him. It was shown when he laughed maniacally and realized that such means cannot justify the ends leading him to join Lelouch in Zero Requiem. Most of his involvement with Lelouch in E.U. mostly dealt with him watching him suffer based on the lies and the death of his loved one he caused in the previous Black Rebellion. His attempt to kill Lelouch as POW and bargaining chip against Charles did spotlight a hint after showing tears upon stabbing Lelouch that he dearly cared for him as his friend in the end just as how Lelouch showed little tears while being strangled. That shows that Suzaku did not entirely hate him throughout R2 and questions Lelouch's actions against Euphie leading Shirley to convince him via death the two would then be friends once more to save the world.

Added DiffLines:

** Calls out Lelouch as a coward for his Geass power, and only refrains from drugging Kallen because he views it as a similar underhanded tactic, but [[spoiler:had no objections to the Emperor [[MindRape rewriting Lelouch's memories]] and even further plays along in the false life.]]


Added DiffLines:

** One less debatable area is where he calls out Lelouch over his Geass power once he learns about it, but [[spoiler:participates in the Emperor rewriting Lelouch's memories with his own Geass power and later continues to play along with the facade]] without any sign of criticism or objections.


* BecomingTheMask: Rolo comes to ''truly'' love Lelouch (as much as his mental instability lets him) during his time pretending to be his brother. Too bad Lelouch only sees him as Nunnally's ReplacementScrappy and later Rolo [[MoralEventHorizon screws up REAL bad]] by [[spoiler:killing Shirley. To make things even more dramatic... in episode 19, he ''dies'' for Lelouch]].

%%* * BigScrewedUpFamily: In His AlternateSelf in Manga/CodeGeassNightmareOfNunnally claims to be ''apart'' of the Britannian royal bloodline, namely by being Lelouch's identical twin brother, who was stolen away from Marianne when he was a baby, and now wants to kill Lelouch and Nunnally so he can claim their powers for himself. [[spoiler:[[SubvertedTrope He's wrong though.]] He's actually an AlternateTimeline.ArtificialHuman created using Charles and Marianne's DNA, hence him being an IdenticalStranger to Lelouch. Because of his nature though, he was highly genetically unstable, resulting in his death via CloneDegeneration.]]

Added DiffLines:

** His true one is to Akito as both are soldiers geassed to enhance their fighting skills developing a romantic relationship with a Britannian female hailed from famous aristocracy who has no discrimination towards Elevens. Take it up to the point where Suzaku kills Lelouch to become a hero who is forced to live the rest of his life as the masked knight defender of justice without his lover but to guard his best friend's sister to Akito killing Shin, his brother to end the coup leading the mainland to take over live the rest of his life with his newfound friend to fall in love with happily ever after for the majority of his life making the two polar opposites. Additionally they pilot a supermodel prototype mecha said to have enhanced advanced capabilities that go beyond normal Knightmare Frame aspects while Lancelot dealt with supernatural aspects on some occasions, Alexander on the other hand had advanced technology influenced by Geass via brain to maximize it's output. Both Knightmares get upgraded with a float system and Suzaku advanced his via energy wing while Akito did not.

Added DiffLines:

* VillainProtagonist: Is this one in Episode 3 of Akito the Exiled as lamp shaded by Episode 2 trailer and most of his development dealt him throwing his grief and hate towards Lelouch after Euphie's death with the screen time of him in the Lancelot massacring Shin's goons talking foreshadowing R2 particularly the destruction of the Tokyo Settlement and his descent into commencing Zero Requiem with Lelouch with the title 'White Death of Britannia' something that would carry on and be told to the E.U. as the worst enemy in history upon the second invasion with Schneizel starting Lancelot & Guren towards R2.
