* The whole Ethics Committee situation is arguably one of the darkest parts of the series. Ikki can usually think through opponents with terrifying powers, but he's nearly helpless against a KangarooCourt that wants to completely ruin his life, start a media campaign against him, isolate him from his friends, and slowly poison him. Since every member of the committee has a vested interest in slandering him, he can't say anything without them using InsaneTrollLogic to make him look more guilty, meaning he has to constantly choose his words as wisely as possible. By the time Ikki's match with Touka is about to start, he's barely hanging on to life and is in a HeroicBSOD due to fatigue, poison, and the shock of being rejected by his own father. The hearing portion of this arc is actually scarier than the prospect of facing [[OneHitKill Touka]] in a duel, since the former is similar to real life persecution while the latter's lightning fast swordplay is fantasy.
