* {{Mondegreen}}: The chorus of "Rose Jail" contains some GratuitousEnglish--but German fans have universally interpreted the phrase "With all my..." as "Willst du'n Ei?" ("Do you want an egg?").

* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: He does techno music, so his songs don't apply here...except "Curse of Rose", which, with its heavy SymphonicMetal influences, is a fairly solid 6. Seeing as how it was composed by [[Music/{{Versailles}} Hizaki]], this isn't all that surprising.

* ScullyBox: The platform boots, besides being [[NiceShoes stylish]], also serve to hide the fact that he's 5'2".


Interestingly, despite performing almost exclusively {{synthpop}}, Kaya is heavily connected to the VisualKei Music/HeavyMetal scene--for example, in 2007, he was part of the "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2D0y5Khmoe8 Node of Scherzo]]" project along with vocalist Kamijo, guitarist Hizaki, and bassist Jasmine You of the {{symphonic|Metal}} {{power metal}} band Music/{{Versailles}} and fellow solo singer Juka, former vocalist of the GothicMetal band Moi dix Mois. Since then, he's performed with and alongside them and other metal groups at numerous events. In 2012, he collaborated with Hizaki again for his single "Vampire Requiem", resulting in "Curse of Rose", the only song in Kaya's repertoire that can be classified on the MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness.[[note]]It's a 6, by the way.[[/note]]

* {{Bishonen}}: Kaya is one of the few VisualKei crossdressers who looks good [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XfUB2SfhG1U in men's clothes]] as well as women's clothes. Considering he was a model before becoming a singer, this isn't all that surprising.
