* SuccessionCrisis: The main drive of the novel is the fear that one of Temari's children will be the future Kazekage thanks to the Kazekage bloodline. The Suna elders cannot fathom a Konoha-born shinobi as Kazekage, so they demand Gaara marry and produce children.

* {{Adorkable}}: Gaara excitedly explains to Hakuto, his fiance, about the cacti he's fond of cultivating. He thinks he's babbling but she finds it very cute.
* AltarDiplomacy: Although they love each other and don't care about the politics, Shikamaru and Temari's marriage still has many political implications. Their marriage is seen as officially uniting Suna and Konoha. The fear that Temari's future children, who possess the Kazekage bloodline, will now now end up in Konoha with the Nara Clan, is what sets into motion the Suna elders demand that Gaara must marry and produce children.
* ArrangedMarriage: Gaara finds himself in one and has no way to back out of it. It later turns out that Hakuto is in the exact same situation as Gaara.
* AssassinOutclassin: Gaara has had a lot of practice doing this, but this time he one ups himself by fighting the assassins while defending Hakuto.
* BadassInANiceSuit: Gaara has to fend off multiple assassins dressed in a three piece suit. He manages to make it look easy, even though he has to protect Hakuto at the same time.
* DatePeepers: Temari watches the first "date" Gaara has with Hakuto, wanting to make sure everything is going well.
* DeathFakedForYou: Realising the neither Hakuto nor Shigezane are criminals, Gaara pretends he brutally killed them with his Sand Waterfall Funeral. Then, he and Shikamaru arrange for them to be given new identities in Konoha.
* EveryoneCanSeeIt: Gaara was the only one surprised by the relationship between his sister, Temari, and Shikamaru. Kankuro tells him that it was obvious.
* EyesNeverLie: Gaara tells Shigezane that he was able to counter the latter's most powerful technique because Hakuto looked genuinely worried for the first time during their battle.
* GuileHero: The Sand Siblings have taken multiple levels in this, forming an elaborate plan to flush out Gaara's enemies in the Council.
* NotSoStoic: When Suna's elders tell Gaara he has to get married, he's too shocked to say anything besides "Hu..uh?!?". By the time they tell him they've already found a suitable wife for him and arranged for the two of them to meet, he's sweat-dropping.
* ObliviousToLove: Gaara is as clueless as always when it comes to romance. He tried reading Icha-Icha Paradise to understand the matter better, but got even more confused.
* RealMenWearPink: Gaara tells his fiancé his hobby is cultivating cacti. She's pleasantly surprised that someone with such a fearsome reputation turned out to be so kind.
* RedBaron: Gaara is widely known as "Gaara of the Desert", a fearsome name that scared Hakuto, his fiancé.
* ScarilyCompetentTracker: The desert holds no secrets from Gaara; as long as he's there, he's able to track anyone.
* SharpDressedMan: Gaara has to wear a three piece suit for the meeting with his fiancé.
* ShipperOnDeck:
** Baki gives Gaara a sly grin when the latter expresses an interest in Hakuto's safety, asking him if he likes her and laughing when Gaara admits that he doesnt ''dis''like her.
** Shikamaru is far more subtle, just grinning to himself while sneaking peaks at Gaara and Shijima talking to each other.
* SoProudOfYou: After seeing what the Sand Siblings are capable of, Baki feels he has finally fulfilled his duty to the Fourth Kazekage and can now retire from being Gaara's mentor[=/=]bodyguard and accept a seat on the Council.
* StarCrossedLovers: Hakuto and Shigezane. She's the head of the Houki family and, therefore, not free to marry the one she loves.
* UndyingLoyalty: Gaara earns Shijima's unwavering trust and loyalty when he lets Hakuto and Shigezane go and live in Konoha under new identities.
* UnexpectedCharacter: Shikamaru is only briefly mentioned in the first chapter in reference to his upcoming wedding to Temari. But he actually becomes an integral character to the story, operating unseen in the background as events take place. He saves Temari during the attack on Gaara's wedding meeting, and then appears at the end to help with a solution to end the entire matter. His reasoning is he wanted to be of help to his future brother-in-law.
* WhatWouldXDo: Upon finding himself unable to start a conversation with Hakuto, Gaara follows one of Naruto's tactics and asks her about something as trivial as her hobbies. Amusingly enough, it works. Hakuto begins to open up to him and sees him as a gentle person.
