* BloodKnight: PlayedForLaughs. He has admitted to wanting to cut down a human being with a Japanese sword, and even asked around if he should do so. [[CaptainObvious He's always refused, of course]].

Added DiffLines:

* FellAsleepStandingUp: Souma's bio lists his 'special skill' as an ability to sleep while standing up. In ''Class Live'', he falls asleep while sitting upright, such that Subaru doesn't even realise he's asleep at first, and Adonis has to carry him to bed so he doesn't spend too long in such an awkward position.

Added DiffLines:

* HiddenHeartOfGold: Though he doesn't like to admit it, Eichi notes that he tends to be soft on his juniors. It's most obvious with Souma, who he sometimes compares to his child, but it can be seen with his Archery club junior Tsukasa sometimes as well, and even in his encouragement of Mao within the Student Council.

Added DiffLines:

* TheHeart: An unknowing one of Akatsuki, at least at first - it was because of his belief in Keito and Kuro that they started to take being an idol unit seriously, and came to care not only about him but each other as well.

Added DiffLines:

* TheDragon: The unit was formed to serve as this to "fine", standing in the way of anyone who might try to threaten "fine" and carrying out its will while allowing it a little plausible deniability. In the early days they didn't even really do many idol activities. They especially function as this in the first half of the main story - due to Eichi being hospitalised, "fine" is temporarily non-functional, meaning that Trickstar target Akatsuki as the student council's second biggest asset.

Added DiffLines:

* GenreRefugee: Many characters point out that the sword he always carries makes him look like something from an action manga. But though he often speaks about striking people down, he never actually does it.


* ColdHam: For all he complains about Wataru being too dramatic he can certainly bring the drama himself in his own way:
-->''Yes. You, dove. For you to have defied me...... I will make you regret it forever.''



* CloudCuckooLander: Enough to rival many of the oddballs! Apart from constantly acting like a samurai from a few hundred years ago (and unlike Shinobu or Rei, he isn't playing a part, and seems to actually ''forget'' at times samurai don't exist anymore), he also has very little common sense and is very bad at reading people, meaning he often waves around his sword and scares people without realising why. And on top of his unusual worldview he can be quite impulsive, making him rather unpredictable. However, he always tries to do the right thing and if anything is too trusting and gullible - he's a very kind guy who wants to protect others, he's just on a completely different wavelength to everyone else.



* HeroWorship: Towards Kanata, of all people, being president of the Marine Biology Club, of which Souma is a member.

to:

* HeroWorship: Towards Kanata, of all people, being president of the Marine Biology Club, of which Souma is a member. He also views his seniors in Akatsuki very highly, though he does also question Keito's allegiance to Eichi.

Added DiffLines:

* ChromaticArrangement: Kuro is red and Keito is green, though Souma is more purple than blue.

Added DiffLines:

* IconicItem: His sword, which he carries around with him everywhere (even at school, somehow) and which features prominently in many of his cards.


* LongHairedPrettyBoy: Has long bangs and long enough hair to make a ponytail.


Added DiffLines:

* LongHairedPrettyBoy: Has long bangs and long enough hair to make a ponytail.
* MundaneMadeAwesome: His tendency to invoke Samurai concepts of duty and honour (usually while swinging his sword around) tend to result in this. In particular, sea creatures aren't just a side hobby for him - no, Kanata taught him ''the values of the sea'', and as such he owes him a staunch ''debt of gratitude!''


* CommonalityConnection: In his first year, Kanata showed him a video about turtles that made him immediately fall in love with sea creatures, just as Kanata does. Despite having very different personalities, the two became very close friends as part of the Marine Bio Club.




to:

* WideEyedIdealist: He's surprisingly trusting - in ''Quarrel Fest'' Wataru notes that he's extremely susceptible to hypnosis, which he attributes to his overly honest and single-minded nature. This trait presumably accounts for his loyalty towards Keito despite his friendship with the oddball Kanata, and it was definitely part of what took Akatsuki from a cold partnership it was to the truly loving unit it is in the current day.


* OnlyFriend: To Eichi when they were children - Eichi's wealth but terrible health made him a bitter, selfish brat who nobody really liked, but Keito kept coming to his house as part of his father's job as a Buddhist priest whenever a member of the Tenshouin family died. Soon they were willingly spending time together, and Keito became his sole friend in the world.



* BridalCarry: Does this to Anzu in Flower Festival and to Keito in Quarrel Festival. In both cases, he fails to ask for consent.

* BridalCarry: Does this to Anzu in Flower Festival and to Keito in Quarrel Festival. In both cases, he fails to ask for consent. Also, in one of the stage plays, he suddenly and unexpectedly leaps into ''Keito'''s arms this way, as though it was perfectly normal. Maybe he just really likes bridal carries?


* FamilyOfChoice: The members of Akatsuki practically form a family: Keito and Kuro being the parents, and Souma as the only son. If Anzu is there, she'll also be the daughter. Kuro [[LampshadedTrope lampshades]] this in Quarrel Festival, leaving Keito to wonder which of them is the Mom and which is the Dad.

Added DiffLines:

* SuperStrength: Is a ''lot'' stronger than he looks; Keito notes that this is probably a result of him constantly swinging around a heavy sword.

Added DiffLines:

* KindheartedCatLover: Mostly associated with sea creatures, but gets very attached to a stray cat in one story, and seems to just be fond of animals in general.
