- Memetic Mutation: Kabane doesn't die when he's killed. Shirou's a liar.note
- The Woobie: Kabane in spades. His self-esteem was utterly destroyed at an early age by his abusive aunt and his cousin Yataro, to the point that basic kindness is a novelty to him. His aunt never sent him to school, exploiting him for manual labor, and it's implied that he's never celebrated his birthday and that he's never been told anything about what his parents are like. It's even implied that he's never had a bed to sleep in and that he's underfed. Upon discovering his true nature, he's utterly horrified by the revelation and was thoroughly convinced that he was a monster until Inugami explained the existence of Kemono to him.
YMMV / Kemono Jihen
