- Ho Yay: Jin and Jo. There's a lot of Held Gaze shots and Jo's shock after Jin's FaceHeel Turn and then Jo's reaction as Jin dies in his arms with a smile. Jo's tendency to say little and follow Jin's suggestions without dissent add to the effect, and then of course there's the Deadly Hug.
- The Scrappy: Gora, the street punk who looks like a midget cartoon creature in a pink jumpsuit and (initially) serves absolutely no purpose in the story except to annoy the other characters and the viewer.
