* HookerWithAHeartOfGold: Helena (Although the "love interest" part should probably be exchanged for "mother figure." [[{{Squick}} Both perhaps...?]]) [[spoiler:Yup. Fifteen year old boy and prostitute. Nobody has problems with ''that'' pairing, do they?]] who aside from being close to Elijah has a tendency to try to rescue other prostitutes from shitty situations.

* ItGetsEasier: At the beginning of the story, Elijah freaks out after killing his first human. Only a year later, he is perfectly OK with killing someone who has crossed a line for him. And then years later, he has become seemingly numb to death, not seeming to care that all the people on a passenger plane were killed to make everyone think Elijah was dead (he seemed more upset that all the time he had spent studying for college was pointless.)

* DemotedToExtra: [[spoiler:Elijah basically becomes this after the mission to save his sister goes horribly wrong. His arc ends with him going into rehab after falling hard into drug use. The main character of the final arc that wraps up the ongoing plot line is his father.]]

* DemotedToExtra: [[spoiler:Elijah [[spoiler:Elijah, ie the main character of the story to this point, basically becomes this after the mission to save his sister goes horribly wrong. His arc ends with him going into rehab after falling hard into drug use. The main character of the final arc that wraps up the ongoing plot line is his father.]]


Added DiffLines:

* ShaggyDogStory: Honestly, [[spoiler:the entirety of Elijah's arc after the TimeSkip is this, specifically his mission to rescue his sister Mana. After a very tense mission, everything seems like it's going to work out. Then an assassin appears and cuts Mana's head off. Elijah breaks so hard that his only relevance to the story afterward is when he falls into hardcore drug use and has to go to rehab. His father takes over as the focus for the final arc.]]

Added DiffLines:

* FriendlySniper: Elijah tends to use a sniper rifle as his weapon of choice whenever he can, but he's a very friendly guy.


Added DiffLines:

* WeaponOfChoice: Kenji has a long knife that he regularly falls back on in close quarters combat with great effect. He eventually passes it on to his protege and switches to a kukri.
** Though he'll use other guns as needed, Elijah seems to prefer sniper rifles over other weapons. He gets rather good with it too.

Added DiffLines:

* OneWorldOrder: A complicated example. Over the course of the story, we see more and more countries join a single world order. Behind the scenes, it is led by people with nefarious plans, but is also full of people who truly want to do good in the world, like the man who is elected to be the president of it. He realizes that he was he is mostly a figure head, but believes that the world needs to find unity in order for humanity to survive.

And then years later, he has become seemingly numb to death, not seeming to care that all the people on a passenger plane were killed to make everyone think Elijah was dead (he seemed more upset that all the time he had spent studying for college was pointless.)

Added DiffLines:

* ShipSinking: In Elijah's last arc before the time skip, he and Helena get together. Post time skip, they've broken up and [[spoiler:shortly after where the story comes back in, Helena gets killed (as collateral damage. The target was her new boyfriend.)]]


* HookerWithAHeartOfGold: Helena (Although the "love interest" part should probably be exchanged for "mother figure." [[{{Squick}} Both perhaps...?]]) [[spoiler:Yup. Fifteen year old boy and prostitute. Nobody has problems with ''that'' pairing, do they?]] and Manuela.

** Subverted with Manuela. She's trying to take care of her daughter
and Manuela.doesn't seem like a bad person, but [[spoiler:she makes zero effort to get through her drug addiction when everyone around her tries to help her do so, and she ultimately uses her daughter as bait to escape to America with Pedro.]]

Added DiffLines:

* DrugsAreBad: A recurring theme throughout the manga. Reaches its height with [[spoiler:Elijah, who starts doing them to cope with Helena's death against the advice of those around him, but falls into them *hard* after Mana dies. The conclusion of his arc in the story involves him going to rehab to get clean.]]

Added DiffLines:

* HopeSpot: During a tense situation, Katchua and Wycliffe are stuck in the middle of a minefield being shot at by an enemy sniper while Elijah is trying to find and kill said sniper. Katchua steps on a landmine and Wycliffe plans to press down on the mine long enough for Katchua to get away, as penance for all the villagers he watched die to the landmines he set up to battle enemy combatants. Riddled with bullets, we see him jump for the mine right as the sniper blows off Katchua's foot. We see a shot of the little girl Wycliffe saw die and think this is the motivation he needs to make it. [[spoiler:He doesn't make it and they both blow up.]]


* {{Fanservice}}, FetishFuel and FetishRetardant: Any combination of those three occurs quite often.


* {{Badass}}: This series has its fair share of characters who qualify, but Ennoia, Tony and Chad manage to stand out. Over the first five-to-six volumes, the reader is told that Ennoia and his left and right hands have a reputation as a total badass In Volume 17, we see ''why'': [[spoiler: Ennoia, Tony and Chad exterminate a Cartel ''alone''.]]


* EyeSquick: A lot. [[spoiler:Helena]]'s eye is perhaps the worst.

to:

* EyeSquick: EyeScream: A lot. [[spoiler:Helena]]'s eye is perhaps the worst.


* AmbiguouslyBrown: Maya and Letheia, which adds FridgeBrilliance when you realize that [[spoiler: they are not human, and thus, take the appearance of whatever they like, they are not Latinos, they're not African, they're not European, they're just brown.]]



* AnyoneCanDie
* ArmCannon

to:

* AnyoneCanDie
AnyoneCanDie: Aside from [[spoiler: Elijah and Kenji]] expect those who appeared in the first volume not last until the end.
* ArmCannonArmCannon: Several characters have their arms upgraded to shoot bullets and whatnot.



* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler: Life goes on, and the new universe is created. Conflict goes on, but there's still hope, because the worst [[WorldHalfFull already happened]]]]



** [[spoiler: Also, the first page from the manga is Ennoia parents dancing, the last page is a single panel with Ennoia and Hannah dancing.]]



* CyberCyclops: When they appear. You know they're up to no good.



* DarkSkinnedBlond: Helena, Pedro

to:

* DarkSkinnedBlond: Helena, PedroPedro.


Added DiffLines:

* LatinoIsBrown: Helena, Katchua, among others, averted with Miriam, who's Peruvian and platinum blonde.
