Regarding Adam, he wasn't beaten at all in the fight. He is Blake's personal demon. She resolves her fear of him during Volumes 4-5, and point-blank tells him he's not important. At the same time, she point-blank tells Sun that the only reason Adam has run is to try and set them up, they shouldn't chase Adam because they're not capable of taking him.

So, the entire confrontation makes it clear that Adam is no longer important to Blake, but also that she's not capable of fighting at his level. It's therefore an odd situation to trope.
