* WhatSongWasThisAgain: Creator/AnimEigo produced English versions of every vocal song on the OVA soundtrack. Particularly infamous is their version of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IZ4UV0WtoMc "Mr. Dandy"]].

* ObstructiveCodeOfConduct: Downplayed. [[AllThereInTheManual As revealed in supplemental material]], and occasionally referenced in the series, the Knight Sabers have 11 rules:
## Do not divulge any information concerning this organisation.
## Do not act upon a personal grudge.
## Do not act without the mutual consent of all members.
## Do not secede from this organisation.
## Members are personally responsible for any damage done to the organisation's equipment unless that damage was unavoidable.
## Do not divulge any information concerning our clients.
## Do not gather information on your own. The task of intelligence gathering is to be distributed evenly among all the members.
## Keep in contact with the other members regularly.
## The members do not know each other outside of this organization.
## Do not get involved with a man.
## The penalty for violating any of the ten regulations listed above is death.
This would certainly constitute an Obstructive Code of Conduct if followed strictly - however, almost all of the rules get broken, and rule 11 is never enforced. Ultimately, they seem to be ideals which have been rapidly modified in the face of reality.
** Rule 1 is a tricky case - while several people know the identities of some or all of the members, nobody actually ''reveals'' anything.
** Similarly, Priss has ''almost'' broken rule 2 several times, but the others always end up suppourting her grudges.
** However, Priss ''has'' broken rules 3 and 4, and how her personal duel with Largo and his Hyperboomers (which resulted in the destruction of her hardsuit and motorslave) relates to rule 5 is also a scary thought.
** Linna, on the other hand, breaks rule 10 regularly.
** Everyone except Sylia has broken rule 8.
** Rule 9 is flagrantly disregarded by all four members.
** Rules 6 and 7 seem to have been followed, though (regarding 7, in OVA 1, Priss is doing what she's told... until she's chased by Boomers, then she's surviving).

** In ''2040'', boomers can only be destroyed by attacking their core, a small red sphere embedded somewhere in their body. This serves to make Nene's combat role more understandable than in the OVAs: she uses her sensor equipment to locate the core.

* AttackItsWeakPoint: In ''2040'', boomers can only be destroyed by attacking their core, a small red sphere embedded somewhere in their body. In the first OVA episode and the last episode of ''Crash'', the only way to stop fusion boomers is by destroying their original bodies inside the huge accumulation of matter they've assimilated.

* MultinationalTeam: If you count base ethnicity rather than actual citizenship. Specifically, Priss seems to be part-American, Sylia is at least part British or otherwise Western European (unless you consider the ''Grand Mal'' comic canon, in which her name is really Stengovich), Linna seems to be straight-up Japanese and Nene has some blatant Russian/Eastern European background, if the name didn't clue you in. See ButNotTooForeign above.
** In 2040 Priss, Linna and even Leon all appear to be of some mixed ancestry that is difficult to pin down.

** BGC features a red-haired Romanova. [[ComicBook/IronMan A certain hardsuit-wearing hero]] features a red-haired Romanova as a secondary character. Hilariously, though, the two could not be more dissimilar otherwise (Nene is a PlayfulHacker who isn't that great at the physical violence while Black Widow is, well, a bigger ActionGirl than Priss).
