Tropes exhibited by this character include:
  • Affably Evil
  • Artificial Human: It's painfully obvious even before straw starts spilling out of his head.
  • Creepy Doll
  • Evil Redhead
  • Ironic Nursery Tune: He changes the lyrics in My Fair Lady, more commonly known as London Bridge Is Falling Down, to whatever he plans to use in the creation of their doll. It also controls the dolls he's already made.
    • This is actually based on a longer version of the song, in which the bridge is rebuilt with the different materials he uses for dolls, but they all fail to stay up somehow
  • Perverse Puppet: He makes dolls based on real people and uses them to fight. He also happens to be one himself.
  • Marionette Master
  • Purple Eyes
  • Razor Floss: Deals with someone with this.
  • Undying Loyalty: Drocell's devotion to his master is absolute, even when Sebastian splits his head open and spills the straw filling his head. He still gets up to report on the intruders and his own failure before collapsing dead.
    • Sebastian: "Perhapse I judged him too hastily. He may well be, one hell of a butler."
  • Verbal Tic: "I reasoned".

  • Catch Phrase: "Jingle jingle!" in the anime.
  • Meido: She works as Elizabeth's personal maid.
  • So Unfunny It's Funny: Her attempts at cheering Lizzie up in the anime are very awkward, but endearing.
