  • Always Someone Better: Surprisingly most of the other pilots have this view of Anthony as the Series progresses
  • The Ace: Naturally see above
  • Back for the Dead Nicol gets taken down by Anthony before the Archangel and her crew get to ORB, the next time he appears up is as Athrun is being arrested by his father and he dies in that very chapter as part of the Sacrificial Lion to get Yzak to side with Lacus Clyne
  • Badass Boast: Gives out a few but his first is priceless "I have to say that was a lot easier than I thought it would be, I guess you Coordinators are just for show"
  • Badass Normal: Anthony at first, he becomes an Empowered Badass Normal as the story progresses evolving into a Newtype.
  • Big Brother Mentor: Anthony can be this to the main cast at times. Or at least he tries his best to be this to them.

  • But for Me, It Was Tuesday: Anthony was an national if not international Gunplay Champion, taking down ace pilots for him is like his regular day at work. A flash back has him in the Hyaku Shiki defeat Tatsuya Yuuki the current Meijin Kawaguchi in the PPGN-001 Gundam Amazing Exia.
  • Character Development: Out of all the characters Anthony, Cagalli and Yzack have the most.
  • Character Name Alias: Anthony Hitoro is the name he used to go by in Gunpla in order to keep his real identity out of the public eye. His real name is Xavier A Foster, the A is implied to be Anthony.
  • Chaste Hero: Anthony for various reasons see Hidden Depths Yzack and Dearka also fall under this trope.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Most characters in this fic have a few lines in the lime light but Dearka's comment on Anthonies character profile in a video game, but they don't know that takes the cake.
    Dearka Not to stand out a bit but did any of you notice that he reported to what was it, oh that's right, sorcery!

  • Door Stopper: While the Fic is considerably long, Anthony in story utilities a book as a weapon, he surprisingly makes good headway with it, even taking down armed opponents out of his suit.
  • The Dreaded: After taking down the most advance Mobile Suits as if they were just kids to him they are he goes on to be called the Red Demon. A name that causes the lesser pilots in ZAFT to freak out.
  • Dude, Where's My Reward?: While Anthony himself helps the SEED universe as a whole, at the end of it he dies stopping the Genesis cannon. Or maybe not, still no reward.
  • Empowered Badass Normal: See the Badass Normal entry.
  • Easily Forgiven: A strange version where both Yzack and Anthony when they are on the same side get along like fish in water. Note, this is after what Yzack has been put through due to Anthony provoking him into a blind rage in several of their encounters.
  • The Gadfly: For a Chaste Hero Anthony likes to tease women. Even Cagalli?. Especially Cagalli.
  • Heartbroken Badass: Anthony Hitoro lost his girlfriend 7 to 8 years ago where she died due to an illness, Anthony was with her right up till the end, except he was so exhausted he fell asleep when she died. He has never forgiven himself for that and hates himself for it, it is implied that he had to go live in Japan with his family friends the Okazaki family to manage to smile and act similar to how he once was.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Nicol's Father seemed to have performed on off-screen Anthony pulls one off at the end. if you read any of the spin offs or the sequel you know that he survives. Anthony himself is not happy about this.
  • Hidden Depths: Anthony may make snark and people, make jokes, smile and cause others to laugh, but in some chapters he is shown that this is partly part of a facade and partly part of what he was and some what is like. Anthony is still in love with Ayu, his girlfriend from 7 to 8 years ago and feels that he still has to love her, even though she is dead.
  • I Did What I Had to Do: Anthony uses this to justify why he let people die in the 8th Fleet die as well as why he didn't stop the tragedy at JOSH-A. It is also why he had Yzak make that speech about how mad Patrick Zala was. He still feels like he is a right royal asshole for not saving them and causing the deaths of more and more people.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: played straight with Yzack, Anthony also fits this trope.
  • Kickthe Sonofa Bitch: How does Rau Le Creuset die? He dies after GENESIS is stopped by Anthony's Heroic Sacrifice, kicker is Yzak is the one to kill him, with Anthony's own Hyper Beam Saber. This scene also serves as a Shout-Out to Gears of War 3's ending
  • Knight In Sour Armor: Anthony knows of the Black and Gray Morality of the Cosmic Era. He at times does not want to, but still strives to do what is right by his own code.
  • Last Request: It is the reason Yzak teamed up with the main cast in this story, he was fighting in place of Nicol.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: When Anthony first kills someone in the Story -he does this very late as he didn't want to actually kill anyone- instead of killing just one single Mobile suit Pilot he wipes out an addition eighty of them with his Beam Cannon. It does not help his case when the speech Yzak gave puts the loved ones of Yzak and the decease Nicol in danger.
  • My Greatest Failure: Yzack veiws his inabbility to have saved Nicol as this, a close second is the military disaster which was named after him, Joule's folly is it's name
  • Mythology Gag: Anthony calls Andrew Waltfeld the Desert Tiger, the Desert Fox in reference to Erwin Johannes Eugen Romme the Original Magnificent Bastard. Waltfield for his part was highly amused by this comparison Dacosta was not.
  • Not-So-Forgotten Birthday: Subverted for no one knew Anthony's Birthday at all as he never told anyone. Also helps to point out, the date and time he was in his world was not the same as it was here. Anthony never told any one his birthday because he felt it was not important and it would never truly feel like his Birthday if he did it on another day of the month. He knew what day it would be on due to the Zero System, but chose not to celebrate it in any case.
  • Older Than They Look: Anthony said he is 19, looks about 15 he is actually 27, making him one of the oldest people on the Archangel
    • because of this Mu la Flaga once called him boy, Anthony from then on referred to Mu la Flaga as Grandpa
  • One-Man Army: Anthony, with Kira and Athrun towards the end have this, though the focus of the story is on Anthony more so than Kira or Athrun.
  • Running Gag: Ever Since Mu la Flaga referred to Anthony as 'boy' the Build Fighter has made several nicknames for him such as; Moo La Flaga, Beef la Flaga and Cow of Endymion. When he refers to Mu as such Anthony makes a comment like referencing something a cow does or what you do to a stake.
  • Screw the Rules, I'm Doing What's Right!: Yzack has this trope towards the end after Nicol dies.
  • Shout-Out: Anthony quotes Char Anzable, Amuro Ray, Judua Ashta, and multiple Video Game characters including ones from Halo and Farcy 3. the way Rau Le Creuset pays homage to the ending of Gears of War 3
  • Shut Up, Hannibal!: Rau receives a violent version of this from a person he didn't even realize was listening to his speech.
  • Spared By Adaptation: Andrew Waltfeld's fiancee Aisha does not die, at the end of the fic the two get married. Shin's Parents and Sister also survive throwing a Spanner in the works of Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny.
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: A much more toned down version of this trope. When he becomes a Newtype and sees the ghost of Ayu, his dead girlfriend he begins to think he has gone nuts or that his Mobile Suit is messing with him
