  • Significant Green Eyed Red Head: Being the main antagonist/rival of Kaito in season 3.
  • Teacher/Student Romance: At least implied on her side when it comes to Jin. The jury's still out on what Jin feels.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Raetsel doesn't have an idea what Enigma is up it. She only knows that Enigma wants to fulfill Jin's wish to eliminate all puzzles but she's being used by him several times for some underlying motive of his.

  • Freudian Excuse: His fiance, Lovushka, died while solving a Fool's puzzle in order to become a Phi Brain and restore her country's wealth which made him hate puzzles. But it turns out that he led her to her own death by not telling her about the country's rising economy and he blames the puzzles for it.
  • Hidden Agenda Villain: While he says he's trying to fulfill the contract with Jin, he seems to be up to something else.
  • Icy Blue Eyes
  • The Lost Lenore: Lovushka, his childhood love.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Enigma is very cunning and was not only able to convince Raetsel to continue her mission after sending a Master Brain to kill her and the others, but reset the disarmed puzzle that Melancholy made since he knew she was only faking being his ally and then put her into the puzzle.
  • Our Presidents Are Different: He's President Corrupt though his actions are for personal means.
