As she undertakes missions intended to unravel the fabric of [[UsefulNotes/{{Japan}} Japanese]] society so that ACROSS can step in and take over, Excel pines for her impressively {{bishonen}}, and impressively eccentric, boss Il Palazzo, who spends most of his time when his minions are out on missions [[OrcusOnHisThrone sitting around his headquarters]] [[VillainsOutShopping playing dating sims or practicing on his guitar]]. Il Palazzo, on the other hand, views Excel as a necessary annoyance who is to be killed as required, or at least dropped through a TrapDoor into an oubliette, when she gets out of hand. If it weren't for the frequent interventions of the [[DeusExMachina Great Will of the Macrocosm]], Il Palazzo would be going through minions like Kleenex.

* VisualInnuendo: Episode 21, as the silhouette of Key (a rock vocalist) playing a guitar appears, [[SomethingElseAlsoRises a phallus-shaped shadow pokes out from his side]], turned out to be [[FreudWasRight a part of his guitar]]. It gets worse as his silhouette continues to stroke the guitar in outrageously suggestive positions.

* UnexpectedlyDarkEpisode: Every episode of ''Excel Saga'' has a particular gimmick or theme, usually PlayedForLaughs. One of the later episodes is the only exception to this, as its gimmick is [[ShooOutTheClowns removing all of the comedy]].

At the same time, a city official, the mysterious Kabapu, has hired Excel's next door neighbors to form a counter-insurgency team that will inevitably come into conflict with the forces of ACROSS. Meanwhile, on yet a third plot thread, immigrant laborer Pedro, who dreams of earning enough money to leave Japan and return to his young son and sexy wife, dies in a terrible construction accident caused by Excel. He must now roam the world alone as a ghost, at least until the Great Will of the Macrocosm encounters him and decides he's cute. Interleaved into all three plotlines and running along on a fourth one of its own are the adventures of [[Creator/ShinichiWatanabe Nabeshin]], the MartyStu / ParodySue and [[AuthorAvatar self-insert character]] of director Creator/ShinichiWatanabe, who can best be described as Shaft reincarnated as an Asian guy wearing a ''Franchise/LupinIII'' costume.
