* UsedToBeASweetKid: Episode 7 shows she was once a somewhat timid member of Yukari's Toji unit. It's hard to believe that she grew up to become an [[DeanBitterman obnoxious Toji school president]].

* GenkiGirl: Is usually cheerful and easily excited, especially when it comes to battling.
* GeniusBruiser: While she's already a force to be reckoned with based on her combat ability alone, what makes Kanami truly fearsome are her tactical prowess and analytical skills in the battlefield . Once she learns and identifies her opponent's style of swordsmanship, she can either easily copy it and make it as her own or quickly come up with a counter against it to come out victorious.

* DefeatingTheUndefeatable: [[spoiler: In a post-series drama CD, Hiyori actually, ''finally'' accomplishes this against Kanami in the tournament shown in the ending, and only because she took excessive amounts of preparations for numerous strategies on how to do it. Kanami takes it in stride and figures on ways to improve herself for next time.]]

* CurbStompBattle: Delivers one with ease to [[spoiler: a Princess Ichikishima-fused Hiyori to bring her back to her senses after hearing what she plans to do afterwards.]]

* CombatClairvoyance: Gains this as a result of [[spoiler: her FusionDance with Princess Ichikishima.]] Problem is that she has [[HowDoIShotWeb she has no idea how it works.]]



* OhCrap: [[spoiler: When she attempts to use her CombatClairvoyance late in the series to try to figure out Kanami, Hiyori sees ''nothing'' but a stream of outcomes where she's cut down for every single possible move she could make. The girl suffers a HeroicBSOD and a CurbstompBattle for her troubles, all for Kanami to teach her not to rely on such power.]]

* Deuteragonist: Hiyori's actions cause the first half of the story, with Kanami mostly along for the ride, and both characters are as important as the other in the center of the plot.

* IAmNotLeftHanded: Kanami rarely has a reason to go all-out in her fights unless it's absolutely urgent or her life is on the line. Consequently, every time she ''does'' show all of her skill, pretty much everyone finds it hard to even try to keep up with her. [[spoiler: Even a significantly boosted Hiyori.]]

* [[WorldsStrongestMan World's Strongest Woman]]: She not only takes after her mother in being one of the best fighters of her generation, [[spoiler: but kicks Hiyori's rear with extreme confidence while the latter is effectively a PhysicalGod from being fused with Princess Ichikishima.]] There's a reason why every character aiming to be the strongest ends up following in Kanami's shadow or trying to beat her.



* CharacterDevelopment: From the aloof and revenge-driven AntiHero at the beginning of the series, to genuinely opening up more later on, the series' story is as much hers as it is Kanami's and she gets some of the most development of everyone.

Added DiffLines:

* AllYourPowersCombined: Against Yukari, she specifically draws upon specific movements and techniques from her TrueCompanions. The manga makes the notion more explicit compared to the anime. [[spoiler: This culminates in using a self-hypnotic attempt to recreate how her mother fought, which works as the deciding factor of the battle.]]
