* FeministFantasy: Sorta. Angel exhibits the key traits of the NinetiesAntiHero to the hilt, delivers zero {{Fanservice}} and never undergoes {{Chickification}} at the hands of a male character (well, unless you count [[spoiler:[[SociopathicHero uncharacteristically]] hesitating when forced to shoot dead her male partner whom she has developed romantic feelings for]]). The anime is somewhat unusual in just how little it acknowledges the gender of its female lead; Raiden expresses surprise when he discovers that his partner who just splattered a terrorist's brains across the wall is a woman, but otherwise Angel is essentially written identically to the typical male badass of 90's {{Cyberpunk}} anime.

* {{Expy}}: Angel looks more or less like [[Manga/GhostInTheShell the Major]]

** Lucifer herself kinda looks like Brigitte Nielsen.



* {{Gorn}}

* {{Gorn}}{{Gorn}}: pretty much every fight scene ends up spilling copious amounts of blood and chunks.

* TheEighties: The whole anime didn't [[RedScare age]] [[OutdatedOutfit very]] [[JapanTakesOverTheWorld well]], but [[EightiesHair Asura]] and Raiden got the worst of it.

* {{Dubtitle}}: Since the original Japanese dub was deemed antisemitic and impossible to market in the west, the English sub and dub toned down the Jewish plot. Of course, anyone who knows Japanese can simply overlook the subtitles and listen to the actual dialogue and know what is actually going on in the scene. There is also the problem that even viewers who don't know Japanese can clearly hear the word "America" being said while the subtitles say something else.

* {{Jerkass}}: Angel
* {{Kill Em All}}: The only named characters who survive the movie are Angel, Taki, and maybe Asura. To say nothing of the the nameless people who got sent to the slaughterhouse.
