Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationPersonalityChange: In the anime, she seems somewhat more trusting of Sora than in the light novel, since a scene in which she makes it clear that she doesn't trust him is cut out.


Added DiffLines:

!! Think Nilvalen[=/=]Nina Clive

Feel's distant ancestor, an elf that a disguised Riku engages in a battle of wits.

* OutGambitted: Throughout the entire encounter, Riku manages to outthink Think, and even his "losses" serve his plan. Riku isn't even fooled by Think's concealing her name from him, pointing out that he never called her "Nina."
* SmugSnake: While she's reasonably intelligent, she still looks down on and underestimates Riku to the very end.


Added DiffLines:

* KickTheDog:
** As she mentions when confronted by Feel, her [[spoiler:destruction of Elvengard]] over being knocked from the sky by an anti-flight ward.
** While she does come to consider [[spoiler:Schwi]] a WorthyOpponent, it should be pointed out that Jibril started the fight, which ended in the latter's death, simply because she wanted a decent trophy; she had no idea what [[spoiler:Schwi]] was planning at the time.


* AmbiguousDisorder: Like Shiro he's straight up introduced with a "communication disorder", which is a catch-all term in Japanese that incorporates those with NoSocialSkills and those who actually have the mental condition. While ifferent from Shiro, he still displays some pretty weird behavior like attachment disorder and an inability to walk outside in the real world.

* ADateWithRosiePalms: Did you think a [[HormoneAddledTeenager healthy young man]] would not want to "play with himself" a little? In the light novel it is even stated that he records Steph in {{Stripperific}} (yet SafeForWork) outfits as fap material, sometimes with Shiro actually helping him record. Of course, [[EveryoneHasStandards he properly waits until Shiro is asleep to have his alone time]] (although she was actually awake most of those times).

Sora lacks the autistic symptoms that Shiro possesses, but he's still displayed some pretty weird behavior like attachment disorder and an inability to walk outside in the real world.

* AmbiguousDisorder: One of the first things the audience learns of her is that she has a communication disorder. In Japanese parlance, that is a catch-all phrase that covers not only what is strictly the medical definition of this term, such as SpeechImpediment, but also such things as social anxiety or autism. What's given so far, however, points to the increasing probability that she may be autistic.[[note]]Put simply, autism is often known for strange, abnormal behaviors that often leads to few human interactions, but the same people often excel ''tremendously'' in areas they personally love, sometimes to an [[RealityIsUnrealistic unreal level]]. Her past shown in episodes such as 8 and 9 are very common autism signs.[[/note]]

* WeakButSkilled: Sora thinks Imanity's advantage over other races is entirely in skll. In the past, Imanity has ruled over the continent solely because they used their intelligence and cunning to overcome their more powerful enemies. It's in the same way that Sora and Shiro plan to take Imanity to the top of the Exceed hierarchy.

Added DiffLines:

* XanatosGambit: All of his losses were meant to be one of these. For example, [[spoiler: gambling Elchea's library away to Jibril, who was looking for a place to keep her growing collection of books. If he somehow wins, then he gets her vast library. If he loses, that's fine, because not only will his successor win back the library, now expanded with Jibril's collection, but he gets to keep a Flugel nearby to observe.]]
