* AlternateHistory: And it can get pretty out there. For example, UsefulNotes/TheAmericanRevolution failed because '''Creator/BenFranklin''' sided with Great Britain. Then UsefulNotes/NapoleonBonaparte conquered Europe, including England, so Britannia rebuilt its empire on the other side of the Atlantic. It is indicated that such changes are due specifically to the presence of Geass. In addition, the existence of [[GreenRocks Sakuradite]] can be used to HandWave some of the technology and history changes.

** Suzaku looks and fights like Syaoran from ''TsubasaReservoirChronicle''. Considering Creator/{{CLAMP}} did the character designs for both, it's not surprising.

** The Creator/{{CLAMP}} lineart design for Nunnally is a direct recycle of {{xxxHolic}}'s Kohane Tsuyuri.

Added DiffLines:
* {{Tyrannicide}}: Lelouch {{Deconstruct|edTrope}}s this trope--and in a metaphorical sense, you could even say he {{Exaggerate|dTrope}}s it. One of his most consistent goals throughout the series is to assassinate the tyrannical Emperor of Britannia. [[spoiler:When he eventually succeeds, he takes up the throne and deliberately fashions himself into an ''even worse'' tyrant, specifically to give all of humanity a single shared enemy to unite them, leading to a better world after his [[ThanatosGambit arranged assassination]]. In other words, he metaphorically destroys the role of Emperor itself]].

* CallToAgriculture: Lord Jeremiah ends the series in an orange grove. Possibly also a reference to when he had to face demotion or a dishonorable discharge. The Euphemism they used for the discharge was "start an orange farm." It shows not only that he wanted new growth after the war, but also reminded him daily of [[[spoiler: his choice to join Lelouch.]]

Added something that I caught while watching the series; freeze-frame bonus for episode 4.
Added DiffLines:
* FreezeFrameBonus: [[spoiler: A sharp-eyed viewer might notice that, in the train cars in Episode 4, all of the passengers have the red eyes associated with being under the control of Geass...which is how 'Zero' has the group left alone, in addition to the forward train car to himself.]]
