Added DiffLines:

* MauveShirt: [[spoiler:Tuto is clearly set up as a regular character, not only being Birdy's partner on the force but helping explain everying about what's going on to Tsutomu while he and Birdy have to share bodies. Then he's mortally wounded by Bacillus and dies at the end of the third episode.]]


* UngratefulBastard: Tsutomu in the manga and the remake rarely ever thanked Birdy for all she does for him and call her his killer.

* UngratefulBastard: Tsutomu in the manga and the remake rarely ever thanked Birdy for all she does for him and call her his killer. And even more when birdy mind had to be frozen for 2 years instead of being sad he was happy throwing away the fact that it's her body and he is in it.

* AdaptationalModesty: In the original manga, Birdy ignores Tsutomu's request to "PleasePutOnSomeClothes" and confronts Bachilus in her birthday suit. The OVA version of the scenes does she her don her uniform right after Tsutomu requests this.

* AliensSpeakingEnglish[=/=]TranslationConvention: Played with interestingly in this. If examined carefully enough, you see that in every interaction where there is a potential language problem (i.e. a human and an alien), there can be a reasonable expectation that that alien learned Japanese. For example, Birdy was on Earth for 6 months, working in the modeling business. Aliens that wouldn't know Japanese naturally only speak to other aliens (though of course the dialogue is translated for the viewer), so they are speaking their language. Tsutomu can only understand the aliens because his mind is inside Birdy.

Added DiffLines:

* TranslationConvention: As noted under, "AliensSpeakingEnglish", that trope can be explained by either an alienspending time on Earth long enough or in Tsutomu's case with alien languages, via sharing a body with Birdy.


* DarkAndTroubledPast[=/=]HarmfulToMinors: Birdy's past, [[spoiler: especially regarding the death/destruction of a woman named Violin who was killed trying to protect Birdy when she was little. While not much was not revealed in the OVA, in the ''Decode'' series, Violin was revealed to be a RobotMaid who raised Birdy Additionally, Birdy, much like other Altans, was subjected to racism]].

Added DiffLines:

* HotterAndSexier: The original manga subjected Birdy to BarbieDollAnatomy. The remake sees Birdy being subjected to AdaptationalSkimpiness and depicting her with nipples.

Added DiffLines:

* AGodAmI: Averted. When Tsutomu (in chapter 77) shout that aliens are useless birdy reminds him that they are not gods.


* AdaptationalSkimpiness: Birdy's uniforms in the remake manga and ''Decode'' tend to cover less than the uniforms in the original manga and OVA.

* ManOfWealthAndTaste: Shyamalan.Shyamalan, who runs a multimedia company and enjoys the finer things in life.


* ClarkKenting: In ''Decode'', Birdy as "Shion Arita" puts an effort to behave more like an airhead and has her hair brown. However, this is averted in the OVA where Birdy's real hair is visible and doesn't bother acting too differently.



* SecretIdentity[=/=]WigDressAccent[=/=]ClarkKenting: In ''Decode'', prior to being merged with Tsutomu and even afterwards, Birdy assumed the name "Shion Arita". This didn't stop a photographer, Tsutomu himself, or someone from her past from recognizing her. Averted in the OVA when Birdy's normal hair is visible and doesn't bother acting too differently.

* AbledInTheAdaptation: Or "Disabled" in Tsutomu's case, as the remake manga and ''Decode'' show Tsutomu needing to wear glasses when he's not merged with Birdy. In the original manga and OVA, Tsutomu didn't wear glasses to begin, thus merging with Birdy didn't improve his vision.
