* ArtifactCollectionAgency: Collecting Gads is SeriousBusiness among the wealthy. The more Gads one has, the richer they are. Aiko's father is one of these, and says he wants to gather more and more to ensure her future.



* BlackAndWhiteInsanity: Takumi doesn't believe in the existence of grey morality. This stems from his parents abandoning him; they ran away because they stole [[spoiler:Night Town]]'s budget.



* CoolMask: The Techode wielders, minus Katana, wear these when riding their Techodes.



* ForJustice: Takumi wants to use his Techode to punish criminal activity.



* GenderBlenderName: Arashi. She was named so by her father because he expected a boy and only prepared boy names. Another option he had thought up was Hayate, which is the name Arashi gives her Techode.



* HappilyAdopted: [[spoiler:Aiko. Her father truly loves her.]]



* TomboyishName: Arashi, specifically because her father wanted a son instead.

Added DiffLines:

* ParentalAbandonment: Takumi's parents stole an out-of-this-world sum of money and bolted, leaving Takumi behind with an equally out-of-this-world sum of money, though it's unclear if it's part of what they stole. He reveals that the money stolen was [[spoiler:Night Town's reconstruction budget, and is one of the reasons the place is so run-down.]]

* BadassLongcoat: Katana is a cool anti-hero who wears a black longcoat.
* BodyHorror: The hitman in episode 13 has the power to fuse machines and other metal things with people. One of the results is a guy fused to his car, vomiting cables.



* OlderThanTheyLook: Takumi is short and looks about 10, but he's in his mid-teens.

to:

* OlderThanTheyLook: Takumi is short and looks about 10, but he's in his mid-teens. Because of the art-style, most of the Techode wielders, who're at least 16, look around 10.


Added DiffLines:

* PrimaryColorChampion: Lightning is mostly blue, with red and yellow parts. He's the main character's Techode.

* EmpathicWeapon: The Techodes are able to move and react according to their masters' emotions and personal wishes, as well as their innermost characters. [[spoiler: This explains why it seems that Thunderbolt goes berserk on Messerschmidt; although Takumi has nothing against Aiko, it seems he harbors a somewhat wrathful spirit along with his rather black-and-white desire for justice]]
** [[spoiler: The scarred man seems to have an attachment to Lightning, as his movements are also it's own. It is revealed that the nature of the Techode was split, and when they become one again, Lightning seems to get the ability to talk and sentience, as it seems.]]

* TheHeart: Aiko. Through the series, she tries to convince all the Techode wielders to work together and thinks they should all be friends.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Aiko and Messa. Technically, all the Techodes are huge, but most are lanky, while Messa is quite stout. Compare with Ilya and Berserker from ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''.



* IWorkAlone: What Hajiki says in retort to Aiko saying that Techode wielders should work together.



* MyHeroZero: Katana names his Techode Zero.



* NonIdleRich: Takumi's parents left him with an amount of wealth that ensures he never has to work for the rest of his life. He chooses to fight crime with his Techode.



* [[spoiler:ReunionKiss: Arashi and Hajiki shared one of these in the last episode.]]

to:

* [[spoiler:ReunionKiss: Arashi OnlyThePureOfHeart: Can have Techodes.
* ReunionKiss: [[spoiler:Arashi
and Hajiki shared one of these in the last episode.]]]]
* {{Revenge}}: Katana would like to pummel Hajiki for having Lightning destroy his very cherished Heavy Metal, Seven.


Added DiffLines:

* SuperRobotGenre: Techodes are sentient and arise from Gads if the person that has them is made of IncorruptiblePurePureness. Because of this, it's said that it's a miracle when a Gad can become a Techode, because the vast majority of the time they turn into malignant A-Techodes.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: Hajiki, Katana and Takumi have wildly different views in life which frequently clash, but they'll work together if it's absolutely needed (episode 6 with the run-away train A-Techode, for example).
