** [[spoiler: By episode 5 she finally decides to shut down the cafe and stop waiting for him. Hidomi doesn't take it well. In the final episode she decides to reopen it once Hidomi convinces her to do it for the two of them and not because she's waiting for Hidomi's father. She waited for her husband to come back because she believed Hidomi needed a completely family, not because Hinae didn't think about her daughter and held on to his return.]]

* RedOniBlueOni: The more calm and collected one to Haruko's id-driven nature. [[spoiler: When the two of them go OneWingedAngel in Episode 4, they even sport the proper coloration.]]

** TookALevelInKindness: [[spoiler: Or if you consider ''Alternative'' to be taking place after ''Progressive'', then you'll realize that Haruko is not wearing the bracelet that connects her with Atomsk and she acts more mature compared to her behavior in ''Classic'' and ''Progressive''. It could be implied that she had gotten over her obsession with Atomsk after ''Progressive'' and peacefully joined together again with Jinyu. Her more virtuous behavior in ''Alternative'' could reflect on the fact that Haruko has finally taken a level in maturity. The fact that she's been protecting the Earth because she's grown attached to the people is a huge step forward. In ''Classic'' and ''Progressive'', Haruko treats everyone like tools and has an disattachement to the planet whenever it's close to getting destroyed.]]

** In ''Progressive'', they're a constant backdrop to the conflict and are an enemy of both Haruko and the Immigration Bureau, but the the focus is always on the characters' internal conflicts instead, most of whom don't know very much about Medical Mechanica anyway.

* BigEater: Her introduction has her trying to reach for her school shoes with her toes because she refuses to put down her snacks. She's shown eating constantly when at the clubhouse (mostly due to the bottles of Dr. Pepper laying around). Likewise during the shopping montage, the girls visit one of the stores, she grabs nothing but snacks and shown eating them on a the bus ride.

* SkewedPriorities: When Kana accidentally gives her a wrong soda other than Dr. Pepper, Mossan is more insulted the wrong soda was a ''diet'' soda.
* {{Workaholic}}: Mossan's dream to become a fashion designer has forced her to take on part-time jobs to pay tuition for her college studies while also working hard to enter fashion design contests in order to gain the funds needed. And that's not to mention she spent doing her classroom's school festival ''by herself overnight'' because no one else was motivated enough to do it but she tried to spur them all to do it.

* UnscrewedSaltShaker: Subverted in that it happens due to his clumsiness rather than a prank, but the effect is the same in the sense too much condiments ended up on his meal.

* KickTheDog: That expensive necklace he got for Hijiri? [[spoiler: He asks for it back since "she doesn't need it anymore" after dumping her. After the fact and just casually via text message.]] ''Ouch.''

* AngstWhatAngst: Haruko's rap in Episode 3 of Alternative is played up to be a comedic scene to help out Kana, but it reveals some [[HiddenDepths]] to her character. She's a stranded alien with no home, no friends, caught in a [[ForeverWar]] against Medical Mechanica and can't even contact the Brotherhood that she works for.
-->''"That's the trend, I got no HQ and I got no friends''
-->''Beatin' up the robots like they intend''
-->''Alone in this battle and I see no end''

* HopeBringer: In Alternative, she indirectly becomes this to the entire cast. [[spoiler: Her motivations and actions are less selfish because she's not obsessed with Atomsk and wanting power for herself. She helps out the cast throughout their problems, wants to stop Medical Mechanica and desires to protect the Earth because she hates bad endings. While she ''does'' call herself selfish in Episode 5, it's a far cry to her impulsive behavior in ''Classic'' and ''Progressive'.]]

* TookALevelInJerkass: [[spoiler:As ''Alternative'' is a 'designed' prequel by WordOfGod, Haruko is surprisingly a lot less antagonistic than in the original or ''Progressive'' and even occasionally offering genuine advice (in her quirky sort of way) and then helping the cast with their problems (though she's still TheGadfly), it makes her behavior in the original and ''Progressive'' this.]]
