* BadassNormal: Syouko, but especially Munetsugu, an old man with the swordsmanship to behead bulls in a single stroke and take on superpowered oni moving at speeds even ''he'' can't follow. Only twice is he ever defeated in one-on-one combat: the first time is in the climactic fight against [[spoiler:Kaya in her good end]] ([[spoiler:for all of two minutes, after which [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome he continues kicking ass]]]]); the second is in [[spoiler:the Grand Route]] ([[OffscreenMomentOfAwesome entirely offscreen]] [[spoiler:by Kaya, quite quickly]]).

* HideYourLesbians: Despite advertising and playing up its GirlsLove, the game does play itself fairly coy regarding any relationship confirmation. Yasumi's feelings for Syouko are blatant, and all of the main characters have ''some'' suggestive interactions with Syouko, but the closest Syouko ever approaches to romantic attraction is [[spoiler:with Kohaku]] of all people!

* AllThereInTheManual: Wanna know about Momoko's [[spoiler:secretly withheld romantic feelings for Yasumi]]? Want to see the oft-mentioned former president and vice-president of the kendo club? Better read the prequel manga found in ''YuriHime'' then, because you won't get any of that from the game.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Although Aoi Shiro is not an eroge, all the blood-drinking scenes are EXTREMELY obviously stand-ins for sex. There's even have a special soft, romantic-porno style BGM track reserved for those scenes only. (This started with ''AkaiIto'').
** Also, the stretching scene between Syouko and Yasumi.
** A non-erotic appearance of this trope is during [[spoiler: Yasumi's Happy End: [[strike:Shurelia]]Nami/Yasuhime appears and sings [[strike:EXEC_SUSPEND/.]]Umi Tsunami to [[strike:seal Mir]]close the <<Gate>>. EXEC_SUSPEND/. and Umi Tsunami are strikingly similar, and both are sung by Noriko Mitose.]]

* GondorCallsForAid: (manga only) [[spoiler: Aoi-sensei calling her college buddy Asama Sakuya, and the Senba oni-hunters mobilizing to answer the call from the Suten, which at that point are recovering from Kaya's attack. Basically, in the manga version, the AkaiIto casts are TheCavalry for the AoiShiro casts.]]

Added DiffLines:

* LighterAndSofter: While having more "bad endings" then Akai Ito, it's , quote on quote, so called "Good endings" are severely less depressing then Akai Ito's. Though the Normal Ones are just as sad. And the mood of the game is overall less dark. (Shown in it's Motiff. Akai Ito's is Blood, while Aoi Shiro's is water.)
