Added DiffLines:

* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: When he was much younger, [[spoiler:he was actually freed from the zodiac curse. He agreed to pretend he was still a part of the Zodiac and stay by Akito's side at all times though, because he didn't want to abandon the poor kid]]. It's implied in present times that [[spoiler:it would have been better for Akito's overall mental health if Kureno had instead broken away then and there, instead of feeding Akito's clingy dependency issues. When Kureno tries to make it better and gives Akito a very heartfelt talk about how it is better to live moving forward, Akito fully breaks down and stabs literally stabs him InTheBack.]]

Added DiffLines:

* NotAfraidOfYouAnymore: Used when he tells Akito that he forgives him. Although Akito still gets mad and injures Yuki, it's obvious that Yuki doesn't fear him anymore, and since Akito controls the Zodiac through fear, it becomes clear that his power is waning.


Added DiffLines:

* IControlMyMinionsThrough: While not minions per se, Akito keeps the Sohma family under her thumb through fear. When Yuki forgives her and makes it clear he's no longer afraid of her, Akito [[FreakOut flips out]] since it means her power over the Zodiac is waning.

%%* RomanceGenreHeroines: Of The Nurturer variety.



* RomanceGenreHeroes: Of The Charmer variety. He's a bit of a subversion in that while he is quick to claim and project the air of the charmer, [[spoiler:he's downright cruel in the way he manipulates and emotionally abuses the one he actually loves and the others around her to get what he wants]].

Added DiffLines:

* SupernaturalGoldEyes: She has golden eyes as a side effect of the Sohma family curse. Her unnatural eye color (along with having naturally blonde hair) is what leads her to be bullied by her classmates.

Added DiffLines:

* GenderBlenderName: "Akito" is generally a male name. Combined with her [[{{Bifauxnen}} masculine appearance]], this managed to fool readers (and some other characters) into believing she was male right up until the UnsettlingGenderReveal.


* StockShoujoBullyingTactics: A victim of the "ignoring" one. Her classmates would also laugh whenever she tried to speak up, which leads to her to refuse to speak at all.
