  • Butt-Monkey: He gets picked on a lot by his classmates and even Rowan.
  • Comedic Sociopathy: He stabs Taurtis, tries to poison SoulOwl, takes bribes, laughs at a grieving mother, and knowingly causes many of the problems he's forced to resolve later. Then again, after the first few episodes, he's depicted more frequently as a Villain Protagonist.
  • Corrupt Cop: He decides to let his Yakuza girlfriend Yuki go after she's been arrested. What makes it even better is that he knows that she's a Yandere and is the daughter of the Yakuza leader.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: He acts like this towards Sookie. Even though she confesses to being a lesbian and is going out with Soul, he still can't stand the latter for being "in the way" of his relationship with Sookie. He drops this later, thankfully.

  • Kick the Dog:
    • After Salex's tragic death at Yuki's hands, Sam grave-robs the body for her uniform and other things.

  • Spoiled Brat: As revealed in the prequel, Yandere. Despite acting utterly spiteful toward Okami after she started grieving over her lost daughter, Sam never receives any punishment from his Doting Father.

    • After Sam and Taurtis have both of their female counterparts revealed, Dom is distraught at liking guys, let alone his love rival for Invader. Dom's father, that being Mr. Dorito, soon finds out about this and decides to kick his son out of their home, leaving Dom poor and taking shelter under a nearby bridge.
    • Dom was originally a bully to Sam, but because of what happened, the tables are now turned with Sam being the bully instead. It takes some time for them to mend their relationship into something more neutral.
    • Past this point, the main trio continue to notice that Dom's clothes get more and more tattered as the series goes on, until he is left with only a cape and very small shorts. People start to notice that his nipples are lopsided, which are frequently made fun of. He also fights Pepe for scraps of food and pennies.
    • What's even worse, Dom eventually gets used by the trio as a fall guy, the one to take the blame for the murder of Yuki's father. Not soon after, Dom also gets bribed with pennies to go act as bait for Yuki, who was on a murderous rampage no less! Luckily for Dom, he was (surprisingly) nimble enough to climb away to safety.
    • At the end of the originally YHS series, Dom has been caught up in all of the main trio's antics with the Yakuza, and now has to move with them away from town in order to live in safety from the Yakuza. Out of those four, Dom is only a bystander and definitely the most innocent of the four, having killed no one but a snail when he was younger. And he still feels bad about it!
    • To look even more pathetic, at the final battle between the main trio's allies and the Yakuza, almost everyone is decked out with actual guns. Dom, on the other hand, has nothing but a fishing pole, of all things!
  • Cloudcuckoolander:
    • He starts to develop incredibly weird tendencies after being kicked out of his house and living on the street for too long. Once he gets a gun from the main trio, Dom originally rejects the offer, saying "Cool cats says no to guns". After being coaxed into taking the gun, he starts shooting everywhere while making sound effect noises for each bullet shot.
    • He then decides to call himself "DOMWOW" and runs all across town half naked. Granted, he's homeless and low on money, but it's still weird.
    • Later, when Dom is being interrogated about the murder of the Yakuza leader, Dom gives a very interesting explanation of what happened at the scene.
      DomRao: [Your] dad tripped and fell on a banana peel and Dorito Trucks just made him EXPLODE PEW PEW KABOOM! He saved a kid in the process, that kid became the president! So be thankful your dad died!

  • Everyone Has Standards: When Taurtis stands on the stool where Gareth hung himself, he comments about how dark he thinks it is.

  • Riches to Rags: He wasn't exactly the richest character in the series. However, he was able to maintain his clothes better when he was living with his dad.
  • Stalker Without a Crush: Towards Sam. He follows him around just to harass and/or attack him for being the object of Invader's affections.
  • Street Urchin: He's forced to live on the streets after his dad kicks him out of the house. Even in Tokyo Soul, he's sleeping in a dumpster instead of, you know, the house that he, Sam and Taurtis are sharing.

  • Ambiguous Gender: No one knows what gender Ellen is. They have worn both female and male school uniforms.

  • Ignored Expert: The beginning episode 12 shows the protagonists getting their fortune told while on a date with Invader and Salex.

  • Beware the Nice Ones: She goes into Yuki's bathroom in an attempt to kill her. That's because she knows that Yuki is dangerous.
  • Cassandra Truth: She claims that Yuki was the one who killed Salex. She was right.
  • Color Motif: She wears purple, which matches her eye color. The color has a Red Herring meaning.

  • Ambiguous Gender: Like Ellen, Pie's gender is unknown. The Christmas special implies that Pie is female based off their face.
