* AnimalTalk: Of the "all animals except humans can understand each other" type. Textually, the characters are just growling/meowing/squeaking at each other, sounds followed by brackets indicating their meaning.
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: Lenowyrm fights back against Zenobia and Routa because they have attacked her, stolen from her, and [[BringMyBrownPants peed on her floor]]. (She was initially willing to forgive the last two.)

* CommonTongue: Lenowyrm tries speaking the language of "your people" to a human intruder, which was apparently in use...a thousand years ago. Linguistic drift over that time has rendered it complete gibberish.
* CruelToBeKind: Caving in the family pet's skull may seem harsh, but Zenobia is correct when she says [[https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/13/science/wolves-dogs-genetics.html 'domesticated' wolves are still dangerous]].

Well, ''almost''.

The goddess overseeing Ryouta's case- being more accustomed to the requests of gamers and would-be heroes- decided to add in a few 'perks'. Like a gigantic wolf body. And immortality. And a mouth laser.
