* WhatBeautifulEyes: Muraki constantly tells Tsuzuki that his PurpleEyes are beautiful. Tsuzuki, on the other hand, hates them because they remind him [[spoiler: of his demon blood]].

* BoysLove: [[PlayingWithATrope Yes and no.]] Tsuzuki {{lampshade}}s this in the first volume, joking that he would give Hisoka a goodnight kiss, but this isn't a Boys Love manga. Later on, in a plot arc that actually deals with homosexual relationships, Tsuzuki refers to homosexuality as 'icky' ([[spoiler:But to be fair, he was masquerading as a priest at the time.]]), and he seems genuinely {{squicked}} by some lesbians in a different plot arc. Everything is officially kept on the HeterosexualLifePartners level with a bit of StupidSexyFlanders, FreudianExcuse, and gratuitous amounts of {{squick}}y MindScrew, but the [[http://i.imgur.com/Xt11TAk.jpg art]] [[http://i.imgur.com/ROcl7AA.jpg speaks]] [[http://i.imgur.com/Tplr6oK.jpg differently]].

* {{Shotacon}}: In the first arc of both the anime and manga, it's revealed that [[spoiler:Muraki raped Hisoka when the latter was only thirteen years old.]]


** Actually, to be fair [[spoiler:it's never stated Tsuzuki's of ''demonic'' origin. Just "definitely not human."]]
** Though maybe other people could sense it in a way because they beat up and ostracized him when he was young.

* BlondGuysAreEvil: Muraki fits the character type to a T though his hair stretches the lightest limits of "blond".


* HandsomeDevil: Muraki.


* Shotacon: Kind of. In the first arc of both the anime and manga, it's revealed that [[spoiler:Muraki raped Hisoka when the latter was only thirteen years old.]]
** Not really "kind of."
