* GoodColorsEvilColors: In the anime, his dreads are purple and reminiscent of tentacles.

Added DiffLines:

* BullyingADragon: [[spoiler: C'mon, Agon, did you ''really'' think it would be ''that'' easy to take down the ''number one quarterback in the entire world?'' When Agon called Clifford trash and attempted to tackle him, [[TheEvilGenius Clifford]] made it ''very'' clear that he didn't even consider Agon someone worth paying attention to before delivering him and Ikyuu an effortless curbstomp. Agon spent the rest of the game getting soundly defeated by [[AlwaysSomeoneBetter Clifford]] whenever he tried to take him down one-on-one.]]

Added DiffLines:

* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: [[spoiler: [[EvilGenius Clifford]] served as this to him. No matter how many times Agon tried, Clifford always [[CurbStompBattle effortlessly trounced]] him whenever he tried to take him down.]]


* JackOfAllTrades: Agon is strong, fast, skilled, and intelligent enough to play any position he wants and excel with ease.

Added DiffLines:

* CripplingOverspecialization: Discussed at one point. Agon thinks that a perfect team need only consist of 22 Agons (and given that he's able to play any position, this might be true). Hiruma, on the other hand, snidely remarks that a team consisting of one kind of player is easier to stop than a team with different kinds of players. Agon is clearly pissed at this.

* OnlyInItForTheMoney: This was his motive for [[spoiler: entering the World Cup. Subverted later against Militaria, when Agon decided that he wanted to play seriously to crush the opponents, because the latter's captain [[CrowningMomentOfFunny shaved off his dreads]]]].

** Also, Agon was a BrilliantButLazy SmugSuper, to Shin's Brilliant and Hardworking HumbleHero.
** Lastly, Agon was this to [[spoiler: Yamato]] as well.

--> '''Riko''' (Sweating nervously): Now, next! "What is your reason for playing american football?"
--> '''Agon''' (SlasherSmile): ... I want to ''crush'' people just like that. I thought I'd show commoners that their efforts are useless. In the face of true talents.

* HeelFaceTurn: Downplayed. Agon never stopped being unpleasant, but [[spoiler: during the Youth World Cup, he mellowed a little bit, discovered genuine enjoyments of football, and made the first step towards repairing his relationship with Hiruma. He also showed some level of empathy, putting himself in Kurita's shoes, and challenging Unsui to do more with life than to follow him. He was still a bastard, but we were a long way from the jerk who threw a ball in the face of a handicapped grade-schooler]].

* {{Hypocrite}}: A minor case: though no one in his team dared say it, they pointed out that for an ace player who said they should always go all-out with the strongest card, Agon sure missed a lot of games with all his goofing off.

* MeaningfulName: "Agon" (in Japanese) is also the name of a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agama_(Buddhism) collection of Buddhist scriptures]]. According to some scholars, the said scriptures were meant to be something imparted directly by Buddha himself. [[TheGift How fitting]]...
** Also, "Kongo" can mean ''diamond'', which alludes to the famous [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diamond_Sutra Diamond Sutra]].
** "Kongo" is also a reference to Kongorikishi, the two wrath-filled and muscular guardians of Buddha. Their statues are often seen at the gates of Buddhist temples. Kongorikishi represent using force to protect one's beliefs and values. Sums up the Kongo twins quite well.

--> '''Agon''': What are you guys, a bunch of homos with a fat fetish?
* PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy: His dreadlocks, gold chain, and baggy clothes gave him this look. He doesn't hae the lingo and his attitude is more of a psychpath than a gangster wannabe though.

** Agon also ''shoved Hiruma's head onto the ground'' when the latter tried to stop him, which was obviously intended to be an act of pure jerkassery.

* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Subverted most of the time. His success with ladies was because of him turning his charm and social skills on and faking kindness, though one of his dates found it refreshing that Agon was honest about finding no point in saving ugly girls.



* {{Archenemy}}: To Hiruma. Agon's a dick to everyone on general principle, but with Hiruma, it's ''very'' personal, stemming from [[spoiler: their former sort-of friendship and Agon's decision to keep Kurita from entering Shinryuji]]. Hiruma's gunning for the Naga generally, and Agon in particular, long before the Kanto Regional, while Agon's goal throughout their match was to remind Hiruma of "just how worthless he and his friends are", to quote Agon's own words.

--> '''Unsui''': Not 99%, but 100% victory. Widening the score gap to 20 points or more, making sure the opponents have no chance to make a comeback, and winning. That's our plan.

** But seeing that Agon [[spoiler: had a [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold hidden heart of gold]] for his brother]], this may not be that implausible...

Added DiffLines:

* FreudianExcuse: Subverted, sure he was being called a once in a century genius so that explains his ego but his hatred of everyone he considers trash and overt violence is just him enjoying it.

Added DiffLines:

* KnowWhenToFoldEm: [[spoiler: He let go of Yamato before he uses his Caesar's Charge, since he knew he couldn't win]].
