* EasilyForgiven: In spite of being responsible for Shuka nearly dying, Shuka is incredibly forgiving of her, though it helps that Shuka is incredibly smitten with Kaname and the whole incident led to Kaname giving her the KissOfLife for which Shuka actually said she was ''grateful'' for. Not to mention Kaname's in the room, and she knows he ''hates'' pointless killing.

* MultiMeleeMaster: In addition to his skill with a bow, he is proficient with just about any melee weapon, or no weapon at all.



to:

* HeadInTheSandManagement: Combined with StubbornMule. He was adamant that the village could deal with both the Doume and the armed invaders. It took Kaname demonstrating a gun in his face, and a Doume attack to make him realize how totally helpless the village really is.

* LightEmUp: He can use his lightning attacks to generate bright light in a pinch.
* MoralMyopia: Bullied Shigeo relentlessly, constantly forcing him to choose between risking his life through point loss, or beatings. Shigeo retaliates, and Shigeo's the monster that needs to be stopped and taken down.
* NotQuiteDead: Although he had a bit of assistance, he does manage to recover from a NeckSnap, even when D-game officially registered him as dead, by using his Sigil as a makeshift AED before the pixelation starts.



* RecognitionFailure: He completely and utterly failed to recognise some of ''the'' most famous players in Japan when face to face with Kaname and Shuka. He's never even heard of their clan Sunset Ravens when every other player worth their salt, and most of those who aren't, and even some people who aren't even players in the first place know who the Sunset Ravens and some of their top fighters are.
