* InvincibleVillain: Buaku in the original manga. The Tank Police is an annoyance at best.



* RefugeInAudacity

to:

* RefugeInAudacityRefugeInAudacity: Once again, the police has a special division that deploys '''tanks''' to deal with crime, with all of the absurd amounts of collateral damage that this involves. And they're the heroes.


Added DiffLines:

* UrbanHellscape: All versions of the story involve a city that is so crime-ridden that the police has gotten authorization to deploy ''tanks'' (from "miniature" versions like Bonaparte up to Brenten's multi-lane-wide monstrosity) and the crime rate is still undeterred (to the point that DaChief believes literally deploying TheNuclearOption is necessary... of course, he's showcased as a bit of a madman and the other civil servants he's talking to on the opening narration are appalled at the idea). The original manga also showcased the city (if not the world) was on the verge of ecological devastation.

* BerserkButton: Anna and Uni Puma started off their careers as [[SexBot "love dolls"]]. They ''hate'' being reminded of the fact.

* ExactWords: A doctor claims his hospital only treats healthy people... meaning, people who haven't developed an immunity to the omnipresent bacteria cloud.



* FingertipDrugAnalysis: Brenten demonstrates exactly why this is a bad idea when he learns the vials recovered from Buaku contained human urine.



* ICallItVera: Leona calls her tank Bonaparte, Brenten calls his magnum The Castigator

to:

* ICallItVera: Leona calls her tank Bonaparte, Brenten calls his magnum The CastigatorCastigator.


Added DiffLines:

* MarriedToTheJob: Brenten is described as such, and loves his ginormous house-sized tank like his son, which is why he's so angry with Leon for destroying it.

* CowboyCop: Almost the whole cast. Is subverted a teensy bit by the fact that their Chief, who in other series would be yelling at them for causing collateral damage, is just as psychotic as his subordinates -- perhaps even ''more'' so.

to:

* CowboyCop: Almost the whole cast.cast (and the first episode of DTP features images of WildWest lawmen to drive the point home). Is subverted a teensy bit by the fact that their Chief, who in other series would be yelling at them for causing collateral damage, is just as psychotic as his subordinates -- perhaps even ''more'' so.

* HeroInsurance

to:

* HeroInsuranceHeroInsurance: DaChief and the mayor are constantly screaming about the amount of collateral damage the Tank Police cause but it never seems to have any material effect on their funding or operations.

** Don't disparage or belittle Boneparte, or you'll get on Leona's bad side, and if you damage it then you're beyond all help.

* ArtificialHuman: Buaku, the Puma Sisters [[spoiler: and Greenpeace]]



* ArtificialHuman: Buaku, the Puma Sisters [[spoiler: and Greenpeace]]



* ShapeshifterBaggage: The Puma Sisters have the ability to size shift into smaller forms, which allows Anna to pilot Bonaparte in ''Conflict''; however, to do so she needs to shed off a lot of weight, by expelling large amounts of water. To get back to her normal size, she chugs down a full water cooler bottle.
* {{Shorttank}}: Leona, who coincidentally also owns a short tank.



* {{Shorttank}}: Leona, who coincidentally also owns a short tank.



* TankGoodness: Pretty much all tanks featured: The police tanks are big and some gigantic and have "trackballs" instead of wheels, Leona's custom-build tank cannibalized from Brenten's she totaled and Buaku and the Puma Sister's two WWI tanks with modern technology on the inside.



* TokenMinority: The NewDominionTankPolice OVA surprisingly (for an anime) has two -- the Chaplain, a Christian, and Nam, a black guy.
* TortureForFunAndInformation: As stated above, their methods of interrogation come off more as a game for them and a way for the squad to relax than actually gain any information information.

* UnexplainedAccent: For some unknown reason, the doctor of the clinic department the Puma sisters stole the [[spoiler:urine]] from speaks in a rather thick [[HerrDoktor German accent]], at least in the dub.

Added DiffLines:

*CastOfExpies: The Tank Police are essentially the same as the crew from [[Franchise/GhostInTheShell Section-9.]] Except the former team is forced to work long hours, for little pay, and are a division of trigger-happy wack jobs.

** In the original audio track of first episode of the second OVA, Leona called the Puma Sisters "stupid whore machines", in the dub, she accused them of having murdered her friend from her time in the motorcycle police and reported the murder themselves.
