*** Technically his reasoning is only partially correct. His Geass would give him some warning, just not enough to effectively react. [[spoiler: Reflexes works through neural pathways which can act on a stimuli before it reaches the brain. In contrast, trained physical skills work through procedural/muscle memory which requires the brain to initiate an action. However, the ability to discriminate important stimuli becomes faster and the actual execution of the skill has become automated, so the action is completed much faster]].

In contrast, martial arts works through procedural/muscle memory which still requires the brain to initiate an action.

* [[spoiler: FakeTrap: In an interesting solution to the agonizing instance in the show where Suzaku [[YouFailPhysicsForever deactivates a motion sensitive bomb by simply jumping and cutting it]] with a knife, the author gives the explanation that it was really a [[ForWantOfANail malfunctioning]] fake designed to deceive Lelouch by tricking him into thinking he had gone outside his Geass' radius, when he actually hadn't, and draw him into Mao's ''real'' trap. Turns out, it was actually a homemade smoke bomb hidden inside a larger hollow weight. While it should've gone off when any attempt was made to disable it, allowing Mao to show it to Lelouch on his video screen and thus make him think his sister Nunnally was obliterated so he could give Lelouch a decent BreakingSpeech and shoot him dead, unfortunately the thing ended up malfunctioning to his surprise.]]

* SentryGun: Mao hooks up one of these to guard the hallway leading to the underground level where he has Nunnally trapped. Apparently, he forced the military to give it to him. Rendered useless when [[TheDragon Suzaku]] [[YouFailPhysicsForever defies gravity]] and [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower outruns it]], delivering a HurricaneKick to disable it. Cue [[ForeignCussWord Chinese Swearing]] by Mao.

Its portrayal suggests Mao to be a [[TeenGenius brilliant]] AntiHero who's [[LoveMakesYouCrazy love drives him to sacrifice everything (and anyone) in order to save his beloved]] C.C. [[spoiler: from her [[DeathSeeker Death Wish]]]] so they can be together again. Forever. Whether or not he will succeed...

** Complicated by the fact that the author undeniably takes the position that, ''in the show'', Mao is an AntiVillain. In the work , told from Mao's [[PerspectiveFlip perspective]], however, Mao starts off with the view that he is C.C.'s KnightInShiningArmor, though later seems to admit he's become an something of an AntiHero, viewing Zero as RonTheDeathEater.

* WillNotTellALie: Remains staunchly honest, despite the occasional hindrance it poses. Also, he's used to relying on his {{Telepathy}}, which tends to render deception pointless anyway. Slightly subverted when he childishly muses that pretend isn't the same as lying when the situation calls for it. He also systematically and willfully uses confusion in order to manipulate people (up to and including their own ruination) toward his own ends. However, he isn't lying ''per se'' so much as repeating what they ''really'' think back to them and [[AccentuateTheNegative emphasizing the negative]]. It's explicitly stated that he doesn't always believe his own {{Breaking Speech}}es
