* WrongGenreSavvy: Re-l spends the first six episodes thinking she's in an espionage thriller. Vincent spends that time thinking that he's in Kafta-meets-Lovecraft story, and Iggy thinks that it's his duty to make Re-L's life a rom-com with her and Vincent's encounters as {{Meet Cute}}s.

** Re-l is supposedly killed at the end of Episode 7, and Daedalus is even shown [[FakingtheDead typing up her Death Certificate.]] It is only three Episodes later that it is revealed that she is in fact alive, and has escaepd Romdeau.

The [[spoiler:game show]] episode is particularly good for showing these changes; Vincent starts in his "I am meek and small" appearance from the beginning, and gradually returns to his later look as his confidence improves.

* BeautifulAllAlong: Vincent starts the series looking kind of short and dumpy. Once he opens his eyes and lets his hair down, however, he's revealed to be rather attractive. After [[spoiler:leaving Romdeau]] he also seems to grow a couple of inches, though this could just be down to him walking more upright. FridgeBrilliance hits when one realizes that [[spoiler:as a Proxy, Vincent is a [[VoluntaryShapeshifting shapeshifter.]]]]\\\

** In a vocal example, the English dub has Vincent's retrospective narration in a smooth mature voice while Vincent's voice starts out meek and whiny. While part of this is just that he has grown more confident, another factor is that [[spoiler: the voice is actually Ergo Proxy, not his human form of Vincent Law.]]

* DidYouJustHaveSex: [[spoiler: Oddly, it's likely the viewer thinking this, as towards the end of the series, after months of UnresolvedSexualTension, Vincent and Re-l abruptly start being nice to each other and acting somewhat couply.]]

* AbusivePrecursors: A subtle, yet running undercurrent throughout the series.

Generally speaking, the track record of the interactions of creator to creation in this universe, either species to species, or on an individual basis, is pretty poor.]]
