* {{Adorkable}}: A [[TheWoobie woobie]] and one of the [[ShrinkingViolet less-spoken]] members of the band, but also one of the most easily recognizable.
* {{Biseinen}}: He's a man in his 30s, and yet he still sparkles.
* ButtMonkey: He is just one in an ''entire band'' of {{Butt Monkey}}s, due to his fun-loving and energetic personality. Unsurprisingly, he often gets into a lot of comedic moments with the others.



* DudeLooksLikeALady: Very much so, especially in his early years.



* FemaleGaze: He is considered to be one of the most attractive members of the band.



* LongHairedPrettyBoy: During Music/DirEnGrey's early years

* GroupieBrigade: Is the only other Dir en grey member to have a huge and active following of rabid fangirls AND fanboys (the other being rhythm guitarist Music/{{Die}}). And yes, he tends to flirt with them during lives.
