Tropes A to C | Tropes D to I | Tropes J To S | Tropes T to Z


  • Take a Third Option: In Act VI chapter 2, Ceal presents Gabriel with a choice: either stand and watch as Ceal kills an HDA soldier, or kill Ceal himself to save said soldier's life. Gabriel takes a third option by shooting the soldier in the head, thus sparing him a slower and more agonizing death at Ceal's hands, but leaving him extremely guilt-ridden.

  • Taking the Bullet: In Act I chapter 4, Tsukune jumps in-between Moka and Mizore and takes a claw stab from the latter to protect the former.
  • Teacher/Student Romance: A one-sided example: from the climax of Act III onwards, Ms. Nekonome becomes attracted to Dark after he stops Kuyou from killing her.
  • Technicolor Fire: The flames Rathieal controls are red and purple.
  • Teens Are Monsters: While they actually are monsters in the literal sense, the bulk of the Yokai Academy student body fit the bill throughout most of Act III. Disbelieving that Tsukune and his friends actually did fight Fairy Tale and believing them to just be fakers claiming as such for attention, they take virtually every possible opportunity to harass, bully, and mistreat them, climaxing in Kano blackmailing the girls into letting him take dirty pictures of them and nearly raping them outright; it reaches a point where Felucia asks the others in earnest why they should bother saving such assholes from Kuyou's upcoming attack. That being said, when the students witness the gang fighting off Kuyou, as well as a subsequent assault on the academy by Fairy Tale, they suffer a Jerkass Realization and help fight Fairy Tale off.

  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: As shown in Act VI chapter 47, even as they're working together to try and find out what happened to their kids, Ageha and Tsurara can't resist being at each other's throats.
  • Tempting Fate:
    • In Act III chapter 9, after Tsukune orders Kokoa to get all of the girls out of the boys' bathroom, Kurumu, being in the tub at the time, arrogantly brags to Kokoa that she's in water and there's nothing Kokoa can do about it. In response, Kokoa jumps right into the tub, says "I'll live," and bodily throws Kurumu out of the bathroom by the hair.
    • In Act VI chapter 42, Ruby remarks that she hopes they can actually take a bath for once without a fight breaking out. Naturally, Kokoa ends up finding out that Sun was spying on her and Gin having sex earlier, and promptly beats Sun into a coma in her rage.
  • Advertisement:
  • Tell Me About My Father: While she currently unaware that her mother is the Evil Matriarch of Fairy Tale, and will likely suffer from a Heroic BSoD upon discovering so, Kokoa seems to long for knowledge of Gyokuro, indicated by her brief space-out when she discusses it with her friends. Although the group topic of her Missing Mom was short, it's implied to be a touchy subject for her.
  • Terrorists Without a Cause: Unlike the manga, where he was a member of Fairy Tale and had been serving as The Mole during his Security Committee days, Kuyou is depicted here as little more than an anti-human thug who attacks Yokai Academy in Act III chapters 40-42 to take revenge on Tsukune and Moka for his previous loss. On top of it all, he's nothing more than an Unwitting Pawn of Hokuto, who personally orchestrated Kuyou's attack on the academy solely to distract everyone while he broke into the school's secured levels and stole an Artifact of Doom.
  • That Came Out Wrong: In Act III chapter 23, Apoch and Astreal, having previously warned Yukari to stay away from Ahakon, are incensed to see her with him; Ahakon insists that it's Not What It Looks Like and that Yukari was "just trying to stop me from finding you two." He realizes just what that sounded like all too late to rectify it.
  • Their First Time:
    • In Act II, Mizore gets hers with Miyabi thanks to Sexual Extortion, much to her horror. Dark, however, says that she has yet to actually have a first time.
    • Later, in Act III, under the influence of the ghoul infection, Kokoa rapes Tsukune and thus loses her virginity; while she doesn't enjoy the actual act because she was forced into it by the ghoul infection, Kokoa does find some small comfort in the fact that Tsukune was her first time.
  • There Are No Coincidences: In Act III, Kuyou just happens to call the gang to warn them he's coming back to settle the score with Tsukune a few chapters after Hokuto himself enrolls in Yokai Academy; several chapters later, it's revealed that Kuyou's return was orchestrated by none other than Hokuto himself, who used the youko's rampage as a diversion to break into the academy's vaults and steal the Artifact of Doom he needs to resurrect Alucard.
  • There Are No Therapists: Both Kokoa and Arial have very severe anger issues, to the point that they've nearly killed other people during Unstoppable Rages, Felucia even lampshades it in the case of the former, telling Kokoa point blank she needs professional help.
  • There Can Be Only One:
    • In Act IV chapter 2, Akua and Kahlua note that when Fairy Tale tried creating more duplicates of Jovian and Jacqueline, the originals killed said duplicates because they didn't want to be duplicated.
    • As revealed in Act VI chapter 52, the Blackheart-enhanced clones of Moka, Ruby, Yukari, Kurumu, Kokoa, and Mizore all killed any other clones that Fairy Tale tried to make.
  • There Is No Kill Like Overkill:
    • As detailed under Extreme Mêlée Revenge above, Dark kills Miyabi very brutally in Act II. In this order, he slowly crushes all of the bones in Miyabi's arms and legs to powder before tearing them off one by one, punches him in the face with such force that his jawbone snaps clean off, and finally tears his spinal cord clean out of his body with his bare hands.
    • In Act III chapters 42-44, Kiria sends an entire armada of soldiers consisting of several attack choppers and a massive slew of powerful monsters, including wyverns, to Yokai Academy in order to capture Moka, Kokoa, and Tsukune; the soldiers even remark that the three must really be something if Kiria is sending so much firepower to a mere school.
    • In Act III chapter 52, Ghoul!Tsukune overpowers Kiria and, in this order, rips both of his arms off, tears most of Kiria's internal organs, as well as a chunk of his spine, out with his bare hands, and finally crushes Kiria's skull with his bare hands before tearing it off.
    • In Act IV chapter 28, Apoch and Astreal double-team and kill Jovian in this manner, with Apoch slicing her in half and Astreal shooting her in the head.
  • There Was a Door: In Act III chapter 51, Dark smashes a window rather than use the door to get to the Blackheart storage. When Gin points out the door, Dark's response is a deadpan "In a hurry."
  • This Cannot Be!:
    • In Act IV chapter 18, Hitomi has this exact reaction when Inner Moka breaks free of the petrifaction; as it turns out, when Hitomi petrified Outer Moka, the rosary, as well as its seal, was petrified as well.
    • After having things go his way for most of Acts III and IV, this is Hokuto's reaction in Act IV chapter 31 when the fully-vampirized Tsukune effortlessly blocks his attacks and utterly curb-stomps him. Best summed up by Hokuto's reaction when Tsukune blocks Hokuto's scythe attacks with his bare hands, stopping him cold.
      Hokuto: That's not possible... how did you...
    • Similarly, in Act IV chapters 27 and 28, Jovian and Jacqueline are completely taken aback when Apoch proves that they're Not So Invincible After All by successfully penetrating their barriers with her Laser Blade, and then using said blade to deflect their Hand Blasts, said barriers and blasts having been said by every credible source to be unbreakable and unblockable. Jovian outright screams, "That's not possible!"
  • This Is for Emphasis, Bitch!: In Act IV, Astreal quips "Let's see you fly, bitch!" before subjecting Jacqueline to a Disney Villain Death.
  • This Is Something He's Got to Do Himself: In Act III chapter 24, during Yukari's Designated Girl Fight with Apoch and Astreal over Ahakon, Tsukune, in accordance with Yukari's wishes, opts to just let Yukari finish the fight herself, partly because his Holy Lock might crack even more if he does, and partly because if they don't settle things on their own, then it'll just happen again. This decision has near-fatal consequences when Ahakon disrupts a Beam-O-War between the two and is seemingly killed in the blast, after which Tsukune confesses that he never thought that Apoch and Astreal would go that far; fortunately, it transpires that Luna intervened and saved Ahakon just in time.
  • This Is Unforgivable!:
    • In Act III chapter 44, this is Kokoa's word-for-word reaction upon the revelation that Akua and Kahlua are working for Fairy Tale and have been all along.
    • During the climax of Act IV, the entire gang has this reaction when they discover that Hokuto, Jovian, and Jacqueline had taken Tsukune's family hostage. They also have this reaction doubly so when they discover that Jovian had spent the entire time sexually abusing Kyouko For the Evulz, with the others flat-out telling Jovian during chapter 26 that she's going to Hell for what she did to Kyouko.
    • In Act IV chapter 31, right before laying the smackdown on Hokuto, Tsukune flat-out tells him to his face that Hokuto will never be forgiven for everything he's done. Considering the fact that Hokuto's list of Kick the Dog moments include such gems as kidnapping and brainwashing Felucia, setting Kuyou loose on Yokai Academy, letting Jovian and Jacqueline rape and torture Felucia to the point of Sanity Slippage, holding Tsukune's family hostage and threatening their lives, and being indirectly responsible for the deaths of Felucia, Kenzo's gang, and the original Ezrana sisters, it's perfectly justified.
  • Thou Shalt Not Kill Muggles: It's been stated that angels are forbidden to harm humans for any reason unless said humans die with sin; this also applies to monsters who were once human, such as Hokuto. Being forced to Mercy Kill an HDA soldier to spare him a more agonizing death at Ceal's hands causes a lot of guilt for Gabriel. Now that Rason is the guardian angel of the monster world, he is the only exception.
  • Threat Backfire:
    • In Act III chapter 42, after the group finds out that not only was Hokuto Evil All Along, but Kiria and Fairy Tale are still active and coming to Yokai Academy, Moka and Hokuto have this exchange:
    Inner Moka: We won't let Kiria get away with whatever he has planned, and you can be damned sure we'll be coming after you next, Hokuto.
    Hokuto: I hope you do, Moka. I'm counting on it.
    • In Act IV chapter 24, when Moka asks if Hokuto knows what will happen if he revives Alucard, Hokuto says that he does know, and Alucard destroying all life on Earth is exactly what he wants to happen.
    • In Act VI chapter 1, while in HDA custody, Moka and co. insist that they can't just imprison them like this, and that their families and the dark lords won't stand for it. The soldiers state that their families will be joining them soon, and they've already driven the dark lords out of the human world.
  • Those Two Bad Guys: Akua and Kahlua serve as such during Acts II and III, being Kiria's Co-Dragons during that time. When Moka realizes in Act III chapter 42 that Akua has been working for Fairy Tale all along, Kokoa instantly deduces that Kahlua is also part of the organization as well because "that damned brat never leaves [Akua's] side for anything."
  • Time Is Dangerous: In Act IV chapter 16, the angels take Luna and Falla to Heaven, stating their chrono magic is too dangerous and they've meddled with the timeline far too much. Rason is able to convince the Almighty to let them return to Earth, on the grounds that they never use their magic to Time Travel or alter the timeline again.
  • Time Travel for Fun and Profit: Kiria's Evil Plan in Act III: use the Chrono Displacement spell to send several Blackheart-infected monsters back in time, subjugate the humans, and kill off the dark lords and any other monsters who could pose a threat to him, thus leaving him in charge of the entire world. Upon his defeat, however, Hokuto remarks that, since Kiria got the idea from reading manga, the plan was most likely doomed from the start.
  • Token Human: Kyouko has become this for the group as of Act VI.
  • Too Dumb to Live:
    • Miyabi arguably falls into this in Act II, raping Mizore and then bragging about it to Dark's face. Dark is a well-known Wife-Basher Basher, and was once Fairy Tale's top agent and Kiria's Dragon, and Miyabi openly gloated about raping his girlfriend to his face; it does not end well for him.
    • In Act III chapter 8, Tsukune insists on trying to talk things over with Dark despite Dark having repeatedly threatened to kill him if he doesn't stay away from him and Mizore; Tsukune knows full well that Dark is not one to make idle threats.
    • In Act III chapter 13, after Kou returns, Kokoa tells him everything that happened while he was away... including the fact that she and Moka settled a debate on who would be Tsukune's mate via the Eia Dreahl, a sacred vampire pact punishable by death if broken, and that Kokoa inadvertently broke that pact while possessed by raping Tsukune. Moka even reflects how idiotic that is and wonders why Kokoa did it.
    • In Act III, Gin decides to turn to Dark of all people for help after stealing Apoch's underwear; the others actually ask him if he's suicidal.
    • In Act VI chapter 7, when Arial discovers that Mizore is Dark's girlfriend, she flies into a rage and is clearly about to kill her, with the others literally screaming at Mizore to run. Instead, after Arial uses her ice to stop an HDA Macross Missile Massacre, Mizore approaches her directly to congratulate her on doing so; Arial promptly uses her ice claws to shred Mizore into Ludicrous Gibs, with Mizore's body having to be completely reconstructed by Ceal.
    • In Act VI chapter 42, Sun doesn't seem to understand that she's only making things infinitely worse for herself by telling an already pissed off Kokoa that she doesn't deserve Gin at all. She doesn't stop even as Kokoa is supercharging herself; it comes as no surprise when Kokoa puts her through the wall before chasing her and Felucia through Fang Fang's villa in a homicidal rage.
    • In Act VI chapter 45, Kurumu starts to tease Kokoa over having sex with Gin... less than ten minutes after Kokoa beat Sun into a coma for doing basically the same thing. Ran even points out how stupid that was.
  • Too Kinky to Torture: Jacqueline, as indicated in this exchange in Act VI chapter 43:
    Jacqueline: Um, you can punish me later for it if you want, sister.
    Jovian: Somehow, I doubt you'll learn anything if I do.
  • Too Much Information:
    • In Act III chapter 7, this is the gang's reaction when Ruby informs the newly revived Apoch and Astreal of everything Fairy Tale did with the army of duplicates they made... including the fact that they also used several clones as sex toys.
    Felucia: Great, they're back for twenty minutes, and you scar them for life.
    • In Act VI chapter 13, this is everyone's reaction when Kokoa reveals to Sun that she had sex with Gin in his full werewolf form and boasts to Sun that she most likely couldn't handle doing the same.
    Moka: Enough, Kokoa. We don't need to hear about this. For crying out loud, don't you have any shame?!
  • Took a Level in Badass: Several examples.
    • In Act I, Tsukune can barely hold his own against a generic ogre without help. He learns to control his vampire powers over the course of the series, and by the time he's fully vampirized during the climax of Act IV, he completely pounds Hokuto after the latter goes One-Winged Angel.
    • Moka also learns to access some of her power so she can fight without always having to rely on Inner Moka, though Inner Moka is still the stronger of the two.
    • From Act V chapter 36 onwards, Kyouko resolves to do this, sick of being a Damsel in Distress. She begins in chapter 37 by dishing out Extreme Mêlée Revenge to Evil!Falla with a baseball bat, screaming at her in a rage all the while.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: In Act III chapter 23, Apoch and Astreal, having become Ahakon's girlfriends, act uncharacteristically bitchy towards Yukari and the others, believing that Yukari might try to steal Ahakon away; when the other girls try to talk things out with them, Apoch and Astreal actually threaten them, and then lie to Ms. Nekonome, claiming that Moka and the others were the ones causing trouble and getting them sent to the headmaster's office for no reason. Finally, after they outright try to kill Yukari in a jealous rage, karma catches up to them big time when Tsukune unleashes Inner Moka, who wastes no time in beating the shit out of Apoch and Astreal for their jerkassery. Even then, next chapter they get in a fight with Yukari, leading to Ahakon himself nearly being killed trying to stop them, after which he decides enough is enough and breaks up with them in favor of Yukari, stating that they deserve a boyfriend each; this mellows them out.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Arial, as of the first chapter of Act VII. While she's at first her usual bitchy self to Mizore, after Mizore comforts her over Complica and reassures her that they'll see her again, Arial is moved and genuinely thanks her.
  • Trademark Favorite Food:
    • Render loves caramel frappés to the extent that Leon accuses him of being addicted to them.
    • According to Mizore in Act VI chapter 15, Dark's favorite food is frozen tuna.
  • Trapped in Another World: In Act VI, in response to the breakdown of the peace treaty and the HDA declaring war on the monster world, the Dark Lords close off the gateways to the monster world to prevent them from attacking, trapping Moka and co. in the human world and forcing them into hiding.
  • Traumatic Superpower Awakening: A variation occurs in Act I chapter 4. When Tsukune is badly injured after Taking the Bullet for Moka, courtesy of a jealous Mizore trying to Murder the Hypotenuse, Inner Moka is so horrified and outraged that she actually bypasses her rosary's seal to give Mizore a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown.
  • Treacherous Advisor: In Act III, Hokuto claims that he wants to help Tsukune and co. and restore their good reputation as heroes at Yokai Academy, namely by letting Kuyou come so the student body can see them fight Kuyou off firsthand. In reality, he personally arranged for Kuyou to attack the academy so he could steal the Artifact of Doom he needed for his plans while everyone else was distracted with Kuyou.
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: Arial. Aside from her Yandere fixation on Dark, in Act VI chapter 13, she broke into Mizore's bedroom in the middle of the night to threaten her with death should she not stay away from Dark.
  • A Truce While We Gawk: In Act III chapter 8, Dark is outright trying to murder Tsukune, convinced that Tsukune can't be trusted to keep the ghoul contained, with Mizore and Felucia agreeing with him and fighting Moka and Kokoa to prevent them from intervening. All fighting stops when the edge of the cliff Dark and Tsukune are fighting on gives way, forcing the four girls to drop everything to pull the boys back up... which leads to Dark, Mizore, and Felucia seeing just how durable the Holy Lock is and accepting that the ghoul is indeed sealed away.
  • True Companions: Even after they find their own boyfriends and move on from him, the various members of Tsukune's harem, as well as said boyfriends, remain close friends with Tsukune to the extent that, in Act III chapter 52, he openly states that he would gladly die for them and can't imagine living without them.
  • Turned Against Their Masters:
    • Dark turned on his master after said master forced him to kill a little girl.
    • Apoch and Astreal fled from their original master when they got fed up with being used to harm innocents.
    • In Act V, when Babylon goes back on his word on setting them free, Rin, Ran, and Ren immediately free all of the people they had charmed for him out of spite.
    • Later in Act V, Babylon pulls the souls of Jovian, Jacqueline, and Evil!Falla out of Hell and forces them to work for him. As soon as the three learn of Pandora's Box, however, they turn on him with the intent to take the box for themselves... only to get killed again and wiped from existence completely for their trouble.
  • Underestimating Badassery:
    • During the big fight against Kuyou in Act III chapters 41 and 42, the gang is smacking him around, leading to Rason stating the fight isn't so hard and Ahakon outright calling him a joke. However, Kurumu and Moka, who have faced Kuyou before, quickly inform them that the only reason they've been doing so well in the fight is because Kuyou hasn't actually been trying, and right on cue, Kuyou goes One-Winged Angel and turns the tables on them in mere seconds.
    • In Act IV chapter 13, while fighting the new Apoch and Astreal, respectively, Mizore and Kurumu both assume they'll be the same as their Dead Alternate Counterparts. They fail to consider that, since these witch sisters were the girlfriends of Dark and Rason, respectively, in their original timeline, Apoch and Astreal would have of course Took a Level in Badass, and are only stopped from getting badly hurt at the least by Rason and Dark's interventions.
  • Undying Loyalty: The original Kikion sisters' only real redeeming trait is that they're completely loyal to Hokuto no matter what; Akua notes in Act IV chapter 2 that, even during their worst tantrums, they never raised a hand against Hokuto, and he was the only one who could get them to calm down.
  • The Unfettered:
    • In Acts III and IV, Hokuto goes to ludicrous lengths for his plan, including having Felucia kidnapped and brainwashed to serve him after letting Jovian and Jacqueline brutally torture and rape her to the point of Sanity Slippage, setting Kuyou loose on Yokai Academy for the purposes of a distraction, holding Tsukune's mother and cousin hostage as part of a Divide and Conquer scheme, and deliberately breaking The Masquerade in an effort to get Tsukune and co. killed by the humans and prove to Moka that his nihilism is completely justified.
    • In Act III chapters 41 and 42, Kuyou makes it very clear that he's perfectly willing to burn Yokai Academy and everyone in it to ash as long as it means Tsukune dies by his hand. He even goes so far as to incinerate Astreal, who had nothing to do with Kuyou's past or his vengeance, for no other reason than because she was there.
    • In Acts V and VI, there is literally nothing Babylon won't do in order to conquer whatever worlds he can find, up to and including having members of powerful endangered species kidnapped to be used as breeders for his army and razing entire populations to the ground in pursuit of his targets.
  • Ungrateful Bastard:
    • In Act III chapter 24, after Apoch and Astreal spent most of the previous chapter mistreating Yukari to the extent that they tried to murder her, Inner Moka outright accuses them as such considering the fact that Yukari was the one who got their summoning spell back from Fairy Tale; in short, the Ezranas are only alive right now thanks to Yukari, and they repay her by treating her like shit and trying to kill her.
    • In Act VI chapter 25, Moka and co. chew out the HDA for continuing to dismiss all monsters as evil even after she and her friends risked their lives to defeat the rylo that was attacking the city.
    • In Act VI chapter 42, Mizore saves Arial from being killed by an enraged Kokoa, who has unleashed her overcharge. Arial scornfully remarks that all Mizore really did was knock her down and that she could have taken Kokoa down on her own; when Mizore points out that Kokoa was on fire and that Arial, as a snow girl, would most likely have been incinerated by simply being near her, Arial openly dismisses it and hits her in the forehead with a shard of ice.
    • In Act VI chapter 44, Arial gets into the act again, disparaging Ceal for his pride and calling Mizore out for defending "that asshole" even though he's going out to retrieve a spell that will heal Sun's brain damage and restore her fractured mind. That being said, two chapters later, Arial solemnly admits that she'll take her words back if Ceal succeeds in saving Sun.
    • Subverted in Act VII chapter 1. While it initially seems that Arial is going to blow off Mizore's attempt to comfort her over Complica's death and rebirth and reassurance that they will see her again, before she leaves the room, she surprises both Mizore and Felucia by stopping just long enough to genuinely thank Mizore for doing so.
  • Ungrateful Townsfolk:
    • After being blackmailed by Kano in Act III chapter 30 on top of all of the other mistreatment from the other students, Felucia justifiably has this reaction. By the next chapter, she's so sick of the other students' harassment that she actually suggests to the others that they let Kuyou kill everyone.
    Felucia: These are the creeps we're protecting from Kuyou? Seriously?
  • Unhand Them, Villain!: While confronting Hokuto on his airship in Act IV chapter 27, Tsukune demands that he let Moka go. Hokuto obliges... by first stabbing Moka in the gut with the Ithirill Blade to collect the blood sample he needs for Alucard's revival, and then having his mooks bodily throw her out of the airship.
  • Uniqueness Decay: In Act III, Rason states that the Holy Lock he gave Tsukune is one-of-a-kind and can only be repaired by the Almighty Himself. Imagine their surprise when it turns out Hokuto has a Holy Lock of his own, and Jovian can repair it, albeit temporarily. Later, in Act IV chapter 16, the angels produce two more Holy Locks to restrain Luna and Falla with.
  • The Unmasqued World: During the climax of Act IV, Hokuto deliberately breaks The Masquerade to the entire human world in an effort to prove to Moka that his nihilism is justified and humans and monsters can never co-exist, with the unmasking being complete with Alucard's revival. The next two acts center on Tsukune and co. trying to prove him wrong.
  • Unreliable Narrator: In Act VI chapter 42, when Gin asks how things got so out of control over Kokoa and Sun fighting over him, leaving Sun near-death at Kokoa's hands, when they never got so bad with Tsukune when the other girls were fighting over him. Ruby and the other girls point out that usually, it was Tsukune himself getting sent to the infirmary after the girls' fights, and unlike Kokoa, they were never so violent as to strike with lethal force; of course, they conveniently leave out the fact that, back in Act I, the main reason Tsukune was finally forced to choose a girl to be with (Moka) is because Mizore had a massive Freak Out! and outright tried to murder Moka in a jealous rage, only being stopped from doing so because Tsukune took the hit intended for Moka.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: When she comes to Earth from Heaven in Acts V and VI, Arial is still technically dead and thus does not have the limitations of a living body; thus, there is no limit to how much ice she can produce at once. However, she's a poor fighter; in Act VI chapter 8, she catches Mizore by surprise and beats her in a fight, but come chapter 17, Mizore's superior fighting skills and technique ultimately allow Mizore to come out on top.
  • Unstoppable Rage:
    • In Act IV chapter 2, Akua notes that, when provoked, Jovian and Jacqueline destroyed entire Fairy Tale facilities in their fits of rage, and only Hokuto could calm them down; according to Akua, the Kikions' temper tantrums put Kahlua's Berserker Tears to shame.
    • In Act VI chapter 42, Kokoa flies into one when she discovers that Sun was spying on her and Gin having sex, and really flies off the handle when Sun outright tells her that she's not good enough for Gin, proceeding to punch Sun through a wall and chase both Felucia and Sun through the house in a rage until Arial encases her in ice. By chapter 44, she's thawed and still pissed off to the point that the others have to chain her to the ground, while she's reduced to snarling and growling like an animal.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom:
    • The entire Ghoul!Tsukune subplot in Acts II and III occurred because Kokoa failed to perform a vampire blood transfusion to save his life at the end of Act I properly. Not only that, but the entire reason said blood transfusion was needed in the first place is because while sleeping in his room with him, Moka sucked his blood dry and nearly killed him in her sleep.
    • As revealed in Act III chapter 15, while making Yukari a new wand, Apoch and Astreal misread the instructions to do so and make her the wrong one. As a result, Yukari gets Drunk with Power and tries to kill the gang in a fit of rage, causing Tsukune to break two more links on his Holy Lock in order to stop her and destroy the wand. All of that chaos happened simply because Apoch and Astreal misread an instruction booklet.
    • It's also revealed over the course of Act III that Kenzo had one of his men follow Dark the night he hid Felucia's spirit artifact to ensure it was in a safe place. While he was well-intentioned, Hokuto finds this out and sends Kuyou after Kenzo in order to discover its location. The end result: Kenzo ends up dead by Kuyou's hands, and Hokuto gets his hands on Felucia's spirit artifact and uses it to extort Felucia into being his minion.
  • Untrusting Community: After a monster attack that resulted in the destruction of an entire human city and the deaths of countless innocents in Act V, the HDA, having already been distrustful of monsters as it is, uses this as an opportunity to declare open war on the monster world, automatically writing them all off as evil. In Act VI chapter 25, after helping to thwart another monster attack only to be accused of being the ones behind it by the HDA, Moka and co. give them all a massive What the Hell, Hero? speech; pointing out that she and her friends put an end to Fairy Tale and Alucard, killed the monsters that destroyed the aforementioned human city, and just killed the rylo that was menacing them all on national television, Moka outright demands to know what she and her friends have to do to prove to them that not all monsters are evil.
  • Unwitting Pawn:
    • In Act III chapter 42, it's revealed that Hokuto lured Kuyou to Yokai Academy by exploiting his desire for revenge on Tsukune and his friends, using the chaos to his advantage to steal the artifact he needed for his plan.
    • Akua and Kahlua helped Kiria in his scheme to rewrite history with Chrono Displacement, planning to make their father one of the top dark lords of the world in the new timeline. In Act III chapter 52, they have a Heel Realization when they realize that Kiria's plan would have been more for his own benefit than any other monsters', and that he would have infected them with Blackheart and sent them back to kill their father as part of said plan.
  • Upgrade vs. Prototype Fight: In Act IV, Apoch and Astreal battle Jovian and Jacqueline, and after much trial and error, manage to defeat them.
    Astreal: Who's obsolete now?
  • Vampires Are Sex Gods: When a particularly powerful vampire unleashes his aura, female vampires within the vicinity often experience The Immodest Orgasm to the extent that they're left literally incapacitated from the experience. Tsukune used this to his advantage in Act III to defeat Akua and Kahlua without killing them, and, as revealed in Act VI chapter 39, Alucard actually defeated Akasha by doing the same; the shame of letting it happen and thus being indirectly responsible for Alucard's rise to power remains with Akasha to this day.
  • Vein-o-Vision: In Act V, Tsukune has this happen whenever his bloodlust flares up.
  • Verbal Tic: Apoch and Astreal have a habit of addressing everyone as "Mr." or "Ms.", as well as speaking in unison.
  • Violence Really Is the Answer: Oftentimes, the members of Tsukune's group advocate violence as a solution to their current problem. And more often than not, it turns out to be right:
    • In Act III chapter 7, Dark explicitly warns Tsukune that he will kill him should Tsukune go anywhere near Mizore, making no secret of the fact that he doesn't trust Tsukune, even with the Holy Lock, to hold the ghoul back when he failed to do so once already. By the next chapter, Tsukune approaches them anyway, hoping to talk things over... and Dark promptly attacks him at full force, telling Tsukune that he should have just heeded his warnings and stayed away. However, in the ensuing fight, Dark, along with Mizore and Felucia, who both agreed with him that the Holy Lock was untrustworthy, see firsthand just how strong the chain is and accept that the ghoul is gone.
    • In Act IV chapter 3, when Akua and Kahlua point out that they came to Yokai Academy to learn the value of human life, Kurumu tells them outright that, as far as she's concerned, they would have learned it a lot faster if Tsukune had just let Issa beat the two of them into the ground.
    • In Act II, when Kokoa picks a fight with Moka over Tsukune and goes so far as to invoke the Eia Dreahl, punishable by death if broken, to see who would win him, Moka agrees despite her inner self repeatedly insisting that they just beat her senseless and be done with it. Later, in Act IV chapter 13, Outer Moka suggests that they just let her beat the new Falla into the ground.
    • During the early part of Act VI, Gabriel repeatedly objects to the gang killing members of the HDA, in part because of the angels' code that humans are sacred and untouchable no matter what, despite the fact that the HDA is openly anti-monster and is actively trying to kill him along with the other members of the gang. Eventually, Ceal gets sick of it and subjects Gabriel to a Sadistic Choice, either to kill Ceal himself to stop him from killing an HDA officer, or to stand back and watch as Ceal does so. Gabriel chooses to Take a Third Option by Mercy Killing the officer to spare him a slower and more agonizing death at Ceal's hands, and from that point on, resolves to do whatever it takes to save his friends, even if it means killing the humans he's sworn to protect.
  • Villain Ball:
    • In Act I chapter 13, Ghaldin has Moka restrained and is about to finish her off, only for Astreal to take advantage of his distraction to destroy the bracelet he had used to control her and her sister Apoch. The minute he realizes this, Ghaldin tosses Moka aside and goes to kill Apoch and Astreal in a rage... giving Moka the perfect opportunity to punch a hole clean through his torso and kill him.
    • In Act I chapter 30, Rarosun and Surason have Dark and Rason tricked into thinking that they molested the other's respective girlfriends, and have Mizore and Kurumu restrained and are making them watch the fight. However, the two get tired of waiting and decide to morph into Mizore and Kurumu and give the boys the final push to kill each other; instead, Dark and Rason see through their disguises, promptly kill the Kiyo brothers, and subsequently realize they were duped. In short, Rarosun and Surason screwed themselves over through their own impatience and sadism.
  • Villain Ball Magnet: In Act VI, after the actions of Arc Villain Babylon turn humans against monsters, Moka and co. suffer this to the extent that, after shooting down the rylo that was menacing a human city in chapter 25, the HDA still holds them at gunpoint and accuses them of being behind it. At this point, Moka gets sick of enduring this trope and chews them out, pointing out all the good her friends have done and demanding to know what they have to do to prove they're the good guys; this actually reaches the HDA director, Hothorne Tamaka, who agrees to give them a fair chance.
    Moka: We put an end to Fairy Tale! We stopped Alucard! We killed those that destroyed your school and city! My friend here even just shot that massive demon out of the sky by means I can't even begin to fathom! What do we have to do to prove to you that we're not evil?!
  • Villain: Exit, Stage Left: In Act III chapter 42, having got what he needed from Yokai Academy, Hokuto informs Kiria as such and leaves the school grounds just as Kiria sends a massive army of goons to the school.
  • Villain Has a Point: In Act IV, both Hokuto and Evil!Falla remark that Yokai Academy's teachings are more about hiding amongst the humans than actually co-existing with them; despite them both being sadistic, Ax-Crazy Jerkasses, and a Straw Nihilist in Hokuto's case, their statements do make sense in retrospect.
  • The Villain Knows Where You Live: Shit starts to hit the fan in Act IV chapter 23 when Hokuto makes his move. Not only does he know where Tsukune lives, but he's had Jovian and Jacqueline hold his mother and cousin in order to force Moka to come to him.
  • Villain Takes an Interest: In Act III, it's revealed that this why Kiria didn't simply kill Tsukune and the others back in Act II; having seen the power of Tsukune's inner ghoul firsthand, he decided that it would be useful in his plans. Unfortunately for Kiria, he discovers the hard way in the final chapter of Act III that Evil Is Not a Toy.
  • Villainous Breakdown: In Act IV chapters 27 and 28, Jovian and Jacqueline, having been unparalleled Smug Supers and convinced of their own invincibility beforehand, completely flip their shit when Apoch uses her Laser Blade to both shatter their supposedly-unbreakable barriers and deflect their supposedly-unstoppable energy attacks.
  • Villainous Friendship: Hokuto and Kiria. In Act III, it's noted that Hokuto agreed not to enact his plan to revive Alucard unless Kiria failed in his own plan to use Chrono Displacement to rewrite history, even though Hokuto was firmly convinced that Kiria's plan was doomed from the start. Nonetheless, when Kiria's plan does fail at the end of Act III, resulting in Kiria's death at Tsukune's hands, Hokuto has almost no reaction; if anything, he's actually happy that Kiria's dead since he can now enact his own scheme.
  • Villainous Incest/Twincest: Jovian and Jacqueline definitely have a thing for each other.
    Hokuto: Such strange love you two have.
    Jovian & Jacqueline: What do we care? We're made from magic.
  • Villainous Legacy: Though she's killed off and replaced by a far more benevolent Alternate Self in Act IV, the original Falla's actions still leave a shadow across the following acts. For example, as revealed in Act VI, the entire reason the Otonashi sisters' hometown was destroyed in the first place is because their father brought Rin to the chronofly kingdom in the hopes that they could help remove the Easy Amnesia spell Rin accidentally cast on herself; instead, Falla, overly paranoid that they would expose their kingdom before she was ready to rule and thus invade, Falla lied, claimed that the spell was irreversible, and enchanted Rin's headphones so that not only would she have to continue wearing them to retain her memories at all, but also to drive her into a massively-destructive Unstoppable Rage whenever she listens to hevy metal music.
  • Villains Out Shopping: Kiria, as shown in Act III. He may be a crazed, Nazi-esque terrorist, but he still enjoys reading manga. According to Hokuto, his plan to Time Travel for Fun and Profit and remake history in his image was gotten from manga.
  • Virtue Is Weakness: The original Falla had nothing but contempt and disgust for both Luna and Complica because of their Nice Girl attitudes; she even went so far as to send Complica to her death based on this, deeming her a disgrace to their species.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Tsukune's entire posse. They may have their differences, and fight and even try to kill each other on a semi-regular basis, but even through all that, they're True Companions to the bitter end.
  • Wants a Prize for Basic Decency: Taken Up to Eleven; in Act IV chapter 11, after bisecting Luna, Falla tells Kurumu that she should be grateful to her for doing so since she's ensured that Luna won't ever hound Rason again, and outright accuses her of being an Ungrateful Bitch when she doesn't do so. Even before that, in chapter 6, Falla points out to everyone in Ms. Nekonome's class that had she not intervened in the timeline, everyone would have died; aside from the fact that no one but Tsukune's group has any idea what she's talking about, the only reason Falla helped to avert Luna's Suicidal Cosmic Temper Tantrum at the end of Act III was to serve her own interests, as Luna was the only one who could free her from her prison.
  • War for Fun and Profit: A mix of this and Despotism Justifies the Means is Babylon's entire motive.
  • Was It All a Lie?: In Act IV chapter 11, after Falla drops the act and cuts Luna down, Akua asks her this; Falla responds with a Did You Actually Believe...? rant.
  • Was It Really Worth It?:
    • At the end of Act III, and the first chapter of Act IV, Tsukune, and then Moka and Kokoa, sarcastically ask Akua and Kahlua if joining Fairy Tale, stealing the forbidden Chrono Displacement spell from their father's estate, turning themselves into Hybrid Monsters with the blood of Alucard, and killing their own kind was all for a "greater purpose" as they believed upon The Reveal that Kiria was just using them as Unwitting Pawns and planned to use them to kill their own father as part of his Evil Plan, which is anything but what they wanted. Akua and Kahlua somberly conclude that no, it wasn't worth it, and spend the entirety of Act IV trying to atone.
    • In Act VI chapters 33 and 34, after Gabriel loses his wings and angelic status to Hex's game, the others of the group unanimously agree not to play Hex's game again as nothing they could possibly gain from it is worth the risk, especially since Gabriel lost everything to the game and gained nothing in return. Ran even flat-out states that, while she wanted to find Rin, she didn't want it to be at such a cost.
  • We Have Reserves: Fairy Tale, through and through:
    • Kiria's plan in Act III, which involved infecting dozens, if not hundreds, of his agents with Blackheart and then sending them back in time. Between Blackheart's one-hour time limit before it kills the host and the life-stealing of Chrono Displacement, those minions were doomed no matter what.
    • In Act VII, Xia-Long casually talks about all of the "peons" they've had to sacrifice to feed Kurumu's clone while he's watching her rape a scientist he brought to her for just that to death. Then, when Moka's Ax-Crazy clone breaks free, he throws a soldier to her to save his own worthless hide before dialing up the others and telling them to send ALL of their henchmen down to try to contain her.
  • We Need a Distraction:
    • In Act I, the Kiyo brothers, in order to prevent the other members of the group from interfering with their master Dhalzin's plan to drain Tsukune and Moka's blood, set up a Divide and Conquer bid against them by shapeshifting into Rason and Dark and trying to sexually assault their respective girlfriends, tricking the two boys into fighting. It would have worked had the Kiyos not latched onto the Villain Ball by morphing into Kurumu and Mizore themselves and trying to give the boys the final push to kill each other, only for the boys to see through their disguises, kill them, and realize the trick.
    • In Act II, Fairy Tale attacks the Shuzens' homeland and is forced out. It's later revealed in Act III chapter 46 that during the attack, they remained on the outskirts of the town without really engaging in a fight, and Issa's guards took them out with little trouble; as it turns out, the attack was nothing more than a diversion so Akua and Kahlua, who had joined Fairy Tale right under Issa's nose, could break into Issa's secret archive and steal the forbidden Chrono Displacement spell for Kiria's Evil Plan without interference.
    • In Act III, it's also revealed that Hokuto, playing the role of a Big Bad Friend, orchestrated Kuyou's return to Yokai Academy to serve as a distraction, allowing him to steal an Artifact of Doom from the academy unhindered while Tsukune and the others were occupied with taking Kuyou down.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: The reason Akua and Kahlua worked for Fairy Tale in the first place was to try to help Issa, making him one of the top dark lords of the new timeline; of course, they were unaware that Kiria had planned all along to infect them with Blackheart and then send them back in time to kill Issa and destroy his empire from within.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist:
    • In Act IV, Hitomi Ishigami claims herself to be one, stating that she petrifies her students because their art potential would be otherwise wasted outside of Yokai Academy.
    • Hokuto certainly thinks of himself as one with his plan to raise Alucard and destroy the Earth, claiming that humans and monsters are equal bastards and do nothing but kill one another in attempts to continue living for the sake of living, but anyone and everyone around him can tell right off the bat that he's nothing but a nihilistic madman.
  • Wham Line: Several:
    • In Act III chapter 12, then the ghoul-infected Kokoa demands that they release Tsukune's ghoul form:
    Rason: Why does she keep saying "release him"? The ghoul is sealed forever.
    Kurumu: Yeah, that lock is never coming off.
    Tsukune: ...It will if she pulls at the right spot now.
    • In Act IV chapter 23, after going on about how Jovian and Jacqueline's barriers are indestructible, and about how Jovian was able to effortlessly break Apoch's shield:
    Astreal: I don't understand... Apoch's sword cut through Ms. Jovian's shield in our time.
  • What Does She See in Him?:
    • In Act VI chapter 11, Sun openly asks Gin what Kokoa has that he finds attractive, remarking about her "serious anger problem."
    • In Act VI chapter 27, Arial, now embracing her role as Dark's guardian angel/mother figure, asks outright why Dark proposed to Mizore, stating that Mizore is nowhere near good enough for him because she just automatically assumes she's his perfect match and has no respect for his mother at all; the others point out that Arial tried to murder Mizore yesterday and has been nothing but a bitch to her since they met, so Arial's done nothing to actually deserve Mizore's respect.
  • What Measure Is a Non-Human?:
    • Rason was originally banished from Heaven because he killed a male human who was about to rape a female monster; apparently, as far as the angels are concerned, even the lives of murderers and rapists have more value than those of monsters. As of Act IV, the other angels have noticed and accepted that monsters can be good too and have designed a Heaven for them.
    • Both Ghaldin and Fairy Tale view the Ezrana sisters as nothing but living weapons and tools to be used however they please, whereas Tsukune's posse think the exact opposite.
  • What the Hell, Hero?:
    • In Act I, Dark calls out the members of Tsukune's Unwanted Harem for constantly bickering over him and not just letting him choose which one he wants to be with, and when he does choose Moka and they start arguing again, he does so once more by their seeming failure to respect Tsukune's choice, describing them both times as pathetic. The girls even acknowledge he's completely right.
    • In Act II chapter 24, after Apoch and Astreal nearly kill Yukari over Ahakon and are beaten up by Inner Moka in return, Ruby angrily chews them out for it, stating that just because they're dating Ahakon doesn't mean they can treat Tsukune and co. like dirt.
    • A minor example: in Act III chapter 13, after Mizore explains that Dark's claims that he'll kill Tsukune when Kokoa's debt to the latter is repaid were just a Jerkass Façade made so Dark would have an excuse to keep him alive, she tells the others that Dark isn't that cold and to give him more credit than that.
    • In Act III chapter 23, Apoch and Astreal get the girls of the group sent to the headmaster's office for no reason and outright try to kill Yukari in their possessiveness of Ahakon, and get their asses kicked by Inner Moka for it; in the next chapter, Ruby is quick to call them out on it, pointing out that even if they have a boyfriend now, treating their friends like that is completely inexcusable.
    Ruby: Tsukune and the others are on thin ice as it is. We don't need you making it worse.
    • In Act III chapter 32, after Kano is killed, Tsukune, Rason, Dark, and Ahakon all angrily storm off to the headmaster and chew him out, as it was because of the headmaster's warning that the group would be separated if they started another fight that their respective girlfriends let Kano blackmail and take dirty pictures of them. The headmaster acknowledges his mistake and agrees to let them exercise their right to protect themselves should any of the other students try to make trouble for the group again.
    • The gang calls out the headmaster again in Act III chapter 42 and 44 over the fact that both Kuyou and Fairy Tale had just attacked the academy one after the other, and he just sat there and did nothing while they and the other students fought for their lives.
    • In Act IV chapter 13, after the new Apoch and Astreal pick fights with Mizore and Kurumu, respectively, over Dark and Rason, respectively, Dark and Rason step in and call them out for their single-mindedness and failure to realize that they're not the same boys they knew; Dark even flat-out calls Apoch an idiot.
    • In Act IV chapter 16, Rason, Kurumu, Astreal, and Ruby all call out the angels in Heaven and the Almighty himself for refusing to take action against Hokuto and his plan to resurrect Alucard out of their Lawful Stupidity. Kurumu sums it up best:
    Kurumu: This is insane! You know Hokuto is going to destroy the world, and yet you're picking on Luna and Falla?! What the hell is wrong with everyone in Heaven?
    • In Act VI chapter 2, Ceal takes the time to call Gabriel out for continuing to stick to the angel's code that humans are sacred and must be protected until they die with sin, especially since the HDA is trying to kill him and the others without mercy or hesitation even as they speak:
      Ceal: They nearly killed those two witches behind you. They've been trying to kill us this entire time. They're going to kill your friend and the others here tonight. And you're calling them sacred?
    • In Act VI chapter 4, Ran flips out due to the blackout in the building, and clings to Ahakon, unintentionally inflicting Marshmallow Hell on him; in response, Yukari, tired of Ran doing such things to Ahakon, drops washtub after washtub on her head while ranting about her doing so, eventually rendering her unconscious. In response, everyone, including Ahakon himself, chews her out over it, pointing out that Ran was just scared and was going for the one she views at her hero. Yukari herself realizes she went too far and apologizes when Ran wakes up.
    • In Act VI chapter 20, Moka hits her breaking point in regards to Arial, Ran, and Sun being Clingy Jealous Girls and blows up on them.
    • In Act VI chapter 34, after Gabriel loses Hex's game, as well as his wings and right to return home from Heaven as a result, Falla chews Luna out for siding with Hex over Gabriel, especially since Gabriel only played Hex's game in the first place because he was trying to help save Complica and just gave up everything for nothing.
    • In Act VI chapter 44, Ruby chews Kokoa out for leaving Sun in critical condition, remarking that even if Ceal does manage to heal her, there's no guarantee that Sun's brain survived the hit.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: As revealed in Act VI, Ran is terrified of the dark, in part due to her long enslavement to Babylon and being trapped in his world; when a blackout occurs, she absolutely freaks out.
  • Wife-Basher Basher: Harming or otherwise mistreating women around Dark is a very bad idea.
    Dark: I despise those who don't treat women right.
  • Witch Species: In addition to generic witches, we have mages like Ahakon. Unlike witches, mages are able to cast spells without wands, but have smaller magical reserves. As the fic continues, it also introduces sub-species of mages, such as catalyst mages, mimic mages, and battlemages. There's also warlocks, who differ from witches in that they don't need wands and focus on Non-Elemental magic to cause direct pain and injury, such as chains and curses.
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: If chronoflies use their time magic too much, it can be detrimental to their mental health, which others refer to as "chrono dementia." In extreme cases, it can even be fatal.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: Act VI has one in Talon Ryashen, the "Fairy Tale killer." He was just an ordinary boy until Fairy Tale kidnapped him off the streets and used him as a Super Soldier experiment, turning him into a Half-Human Hybrid by injecting him with Alucard's blood. He escaped the facility when the experiments were completed, and was rejected by his family because of what he had become; as a result, he has embarked on a crusade to kill anyone and everyone who is or was part of Fairy Tale, including Unwitting Pawns, receptionists, and those who turned on the organization, such as Dark, Akua, and Kahlua. As he puts it, Fairy Tale took everything from him, and he has nothing left to live for but revenge on the organization.
  • The Worf Effect:
    • Apoch and Astreal have the reputation of "the perfect shield and the perfect sword." Said reputation starts to become an Informed Attribute as the series goes on, with more and more people proving able to block and survive Astreal's Hand Blasts and shatter Apoch's barriers.
    • In Act II chapter 23, when the gang fights Kiria in the Snow Woman Village, he easily curb-stomps all of them to the extent that Tsukune is forced to unleash his inner ghoul just to stand a chance. Even then, Kiria ultimately comes out on top, and it's only because Kiria decides that Tsukune could be useful to his plans that they get out alive.
    • Jovian and Jacqueline are set up as Invincible Villains with impenetrable barriers and unblockable energy attacks, with their power levels being outright described by Akua as immeasurable. Come Act IV, and it turns out the new Apoch's Laser Blade can cut through their barriers and deflect their attacks.
    • The first sign of just how tough a rylo is in Act VI? Kurumu using her Princess of Hell Super Mode doesn't even faze it.
    • The rylo is also on the receiving end of this; in Act VI chapter 25, Astreal uses the Artimus Arrow spell, which completely obliterates the supposedly Nigh Invulnerable demon with one shot.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Somewhat paradoxical to his Wife-Basher Basher status, Dark doesn't discriminate against hitting girls, most notably by blasting Felucia's head off with a shotgun. Of course, Felucia can regenerate.
  • Would Hurt a Child/Wouldn't Hurt a Child: Several characters hold one of these two views.
    • Dark states that, even for the denizens of Hell, the act of killing a child is completely abhorrent and looked down upon everywhere. Unfortunately, his then-master had no such restraints and forced him to kill one... which proved his undoing.
    • The members of Fairy Tale have absolutely zero qualms against razing entire villages to the ground if the inhabitants of said villages don't agree to their demands, and certainly don't discriminate against children. In fact, when the readers are first introduced to Ahakon in Act III, he's fleeing from a Fairy Tale squadron out for his blood.
    • In Act VI chapter 20, Ran bodily lifts Yukari off the ground and is about to punch her in the face in a fit of jealousy before Arial freezes her on the spot.
    • In Act VI chapter 47, Render calls out a member of the HDA for trying to kill monster kids even if they were Just Following Orders, sarcastically quipping that he "must feel so proud." Said HDA officer bitterly remarks that he doesn't care if the monsters responsible for the attack on the school during Act V were kids because said monsters killed his daughter.
  • Wrecked Weapon: Both Yukari and Ruby have gone through multiple wands over the course of the series.
  • Yandere:
    • In Act III chapters 11 and 12, Kokoa, having been infected by Tsukune's inner ghoul, develops a darker side that is this to Tsukune, wanting nothing but to make love to Tsukune whether the latter wants it or not; indeed, as soon as Moka leaves the room and said dark side takes over, Kokoa goes so far as to paralyze Tsukune with a "love tap" to the spine just to ensure he'll hold still while she has her way with him.
    • This is Arial's attitude towards Dark for most of Acts V and VI, being extremely possessive over him to the extent that when she finds out that Dark is dating Mizore, she brutally attacks and nearly kills the latter in a fit of rage. Later, in Act VI chapter 13, Arial breaks into Mizore's room and seals her status as this by issuing a very chilling death threat:
    Arial: Dark is my demon. He's going to be my husband, and only I'm going to have his mark over my heart. Do you hear me? If you kiss him, I'll claw off your lips. If you touch him, I'll cut off your hand. If you take his seed into you, I'll carve it out of you. He belongs to me. Everything about him is mine.
    • Ren is turning into one as well due to her feelings for Tsukune as of Act VI, repeatedly swearing to herself that she'll never let Moka come near Tsukune again to the extent that, in Act VI chapter 48, she fantasizes about killing Moka with her bare hands.
  • Year Inside, Hour Outside: Though Complica returns as an anomaly in Act VII only a few hours after her death and rebirth, from her perspective, it was "6,789,241 years, 8 months, 22 days, 14 hours, and 16 seconds."
  • Yes-Man:
    • Both Mizore and Felucia have become this to Dark, being essentially unable to say no to anything he says. If he says Tsukune is a threat even with the Holy Lock holding the ghoul at bay, then Tsukune's a threat. If he says Tsukune is safe, then he's safe. In fact, in the early chapters of Act IV, Mizore goes from rejecting and lambasting Akua and Kahlua to giving them a chance simply because Dark said so.
    • Gabriel also assumes this role early on in Act VI, being insistent on following the Almighty's law that humans are sacred and cannot be harmed by the angels even as the HDA is trying to kill him and his friends without mercy or hesitation. Ceal even lampshades it:
    Ceal: If your lord told you to kill yourself, would you?
  • You Are Too Late: Despite Tsukune's best efforts during the climax of Act IV, he is unable to defeat Hokuto before he unleashes Alucard.
  • You Are Worth Hell:
    • In Act III chapter 52, when the others ask why he used the Chrono Displacement spell to save them, Tsukune informs them that they're his friends, and if given the choice, he would gladly give his life for theirs a second time.
    • In Act VI chapter 49, Ten-Ten requests that Issa and the other dark lords at least let herself and Ling Ling through to the human world to see Fang Fang and her husband, willing to be closed off from the monster world forever as long as she can have her family together again.
    Issa: Your dedication and willingness to go through so much for your loved ones is commendable.
  • You Can't Fight Fate: Discussed in Act VII chapter 1. Having foreseen the future, Complica remarks to Pandora that Tsukune and co. have free will and have the potential to reshape their own futures, but there's only so much they can change with their actions; some things are inevitable.
  • You Can't Kill What's Already Dead: In Act VI chapter 43, Ling Ling repeatedly brags as such, being a zombie.
    Ling Ling: They cannot kill me no matter how much they so desire, for I am already dead.
  • You Did Everything You Could: In Act IV chapter 29, when Apoch and Mizore are blaming themselves for Felucia's death, Dark invokes this trope, reminding them that Apoch and Astreal killed Jovian and Jacqueline, the ones who enslaved Felucia in the first place, and Mizore stayed with Felucia to the end to ensure her escape, and that's all he could have asked of them.
  • You, Get Me Coffee: In Act VII chapter 2, Ahakon and Yukari find themselves reduced to getting coffee for Ruby, much to their annoyance.
  • You Have Got to Be Kidding Me!:
    • In Act VI chapter 25, this is Gabriel's reaction when he sees that the HDA are still holding Moka and the others at gunpoint even after Astreal shot down the rylo that was attacking the city.
    • In Act VI chapter 42, this is Mizore's completely understandable reaction when her attempt at bonding with Arial leads to Arial continuing to criticize her and insist that Mizore is nowhere near good enough for Dark, as well as near the end of the chapter, when Arial cares more about the fact that Felucia saved Sun from an enraged Kokoa than the fact that Mizore saved her ungrateful life from Kokoa mere seconds before.
  • You Have No Chance to Survive: Several times during Act VI, Hex flat-out tells Moka and co. to their faces that, as far as he's concerned, they don't stand a chance at thwarting Babylon's impending invasion, especially considering that countless other worlds have fallen to him.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: In Act III chapter 42, after stealing the Artifact of Doom he needs for his plans, Hokuto outright declares that Yokai Academy has no further use to him and gives Kiria free rein to send a Fairy Tale squadron to the school to wreck the place; fortunately, Tsukune and co. manage to fight them off.
  • You Just Had to Say It:
    • In Act III chapter 42, after all of the chaos that just occurred with Kuyou's attack, along with the revelation that Hokuto was Evil All Along and that he's gotten his hands on Felucia's Soul Jar and used to to extort her into being his minion, the gang has just discovered that Fairy Tale is not only still active, but coming to Yokai Academy, and that Akua and Kahlua, who had previously visited the school to tell the gang that Fairy Tale was destroyed, were actually in league with the organization all along.
    Kurumu: Great, this day just keeps getting better and better.
    Gin: Any chance it could get worse?
    (sounds of Crowd Panic come from outside as Fairy Tale approaches the school)
    Dark: You just had to open your mouth.
    • In Act IV chapter 32, after none of their attacks manage to phase Alucard, Razico openly ponders how it could get any worse. At that, Alucard spawns a bunch on mini-Alucards to help in his rampage.
    Akua: You just had to say something, Razico.
  • You Watch Too Much X: It's heavily implied in Act III and later Act VI that Kiria got his plan to use Chrono Displacement to rewrite history from reading manga, hence why Hokuto believed that said plan was doomed to fail from the start.
  • You Won't Feel a Thing: In Act III chapter 43, after Tsukune makes the others promise to kill him should the Holy Lock break completely and the ghoul resurface, Mizore promises him that she'll try to make it painless should it come to that. Fortunately, it doesn't come to that.
  • You Wouldn't Like Me When I'm Angry: At times, Inner Moka manages to bypass the rosary's seal when Moka is under great emotional stress. Examples include Act I chapter 4, when she witnesses Tsukune Taking the Bullet for her to stop Mizore from killing her, and Act VI chapter 20, when her hair briefly turns silver while she's angrily telling Ran, Sun, and Arial to just accept that their respective crushes are taken.
  • Your Head Asplode:
    • After he's freed from Ghaldin's control in Act I, the first thing Dark does is stomp the skull of Ghaldin's body into mush.
    • In Act III chapter 40, Tsukune finishes off Kuyou by shattering his head with a punch.
    • Discussed: in Act VI chapter 42, Kokoa critically injures Sun with a Megaton Punch to the face; as revealed in chapter 44, Kokoa's attack pulverized Sun's eyes and cracked her skull, and if she had used just a little more power, she would have shattered Sun's skull completely.
    • In Act VI chapter 48, Ren fantasizes about doing this to Moka with her bare hands.
  • You're Insane!:
    • In Act III chapter 46, this is the entire group's reaction when they realize that a key factor in Kiria's plan is to infect Tsukune's ghoul form with Blackheart.
    • In Act IV chapter 17, when Ruby conjures a bazooka loaded with the love-struck potion antidote and orders Akua to shoot those affected, Akua rightfully asks, "Are you out of your fucking mind?"
    • Later in Act IV, when Hokuto is going on about his nihilism, both Tsukune and Moka tell him he's out of his mind.
    • In Act V chapter 29, when Ceal reveals that he intends to slay a dragon, both Render and Leon outright question his sanity.
  • Zombie Advocate:
    • Rason is determined to prove to his superiors that monsters can be good too. By Act IV, he's finally succeeded.
    • Kyouko has become one as of Acts V and VI, explicitly telling several of the other girls in the group that even if they are monsters, she knows they aren't evil and trusts them with her life.
