* ApocalypseMaiden: Both Yushiro and Miharu. Whenever they are reincarnated to the same time period, they will be destined to activate their Kugais, fought each other, and while at it, summon The Gasaraki. Since both of their souls knew fully well each outcome will cause calamity to the world they live in, whoever awakens their memories of their past incarnations first will do whatever it takes to prevent the other to stop the summoning, even if it'll cost them their lives.

* PlayingAgainstType:
** Yes, Creator/NobuyukiHiyama was still at his prime playing his [[RealRobotGenre Real Robot]] AcePilot... and yet Yushiro is a character ''[[TheQuietOne far]]'' from being {{Hotblooded}}.
** And Creator/ShowHayami plays "MadScientist" Kiyotsugu... but as mentioned above, he's ''not'' the BigBad and even has more than one line he won't cross.

* ClingyJealousGirl Misuzu does NOT like Miharu being around Yushiro; plus, the way she dotes on Yushiro is rather creepy given that [[IncestIsRelative he's her brother]]. [[spoiler: Even when, well, he's not the ''real'' Yushiro.]]
** And for worse? [[spoiler: When she connects with one of the mechas as the ''kai'' she is, Kazukiyo uses her jealousy of Miharu so she will keep brainwashing her.]]



* NormallyIWouldBeDeadNow: Yushiro miraculously [[spoiler: avoids being pulverized by an artillery bombardment]].
** And even earlier [[spoiler: he gets shot in the head by a sniper and lives, though in all fairness he was still wearing his helmet]].
* OddNameOut: Yushiro is the only one of the Gowa sons to lack the "Kiyo" (清) character in his name.



* TheOjou: Misuzu.

* CombatPragmatist: Yushiro, though some of it is psychic power induced.



* CoolBigSis: Rin Ataka
* CooldownHug: Averted; Daizaburo is about to give one to his daughter, Misuzu, to dissuade her from [[spoiler: using her powers as a Kai]] -- and right then, [[spoiler: his eldest son Kazukiyo shoots him in the back, killing him.]]
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Most of the Gowa clan.
** Something of a deconstruction, it's revealed that most of them (except Kazukiyo) abide by ''some'' code of morality as the series goes on. i.e., upon learning that [[spoiler: Misuzu is a Kai]], Kiyotsugu refuses to disclose said knowledge [[spoiler: to protect her from Kazukiyo. And when Kiyoharu is the one who spills the beans, Kiyotsugu is all OhCrap]].



* DeadPersonImpersonation. [[spoiler:The protagonist Yushiro was raised under the identity of the real, '''and long-dead''', "Yushiro Gowa".]]



* ForScience: Kiyotsugu's MO.
* GenerationXerox: As the flashback shows, [[spoiler: Kazukito's actions mimmic those of the Watanabe clan member Tsuna]].



* GoodHairEvilHair: Kazukiyo has Slicked-Back Hair, easily identifying him as evil.



* ImprobableAge: Yushiro is 16; justified in that he is still a civilian, and that the TA squadron he's assigned to wasn't meant to serve in combat at all. This is also lampshaded during episode 6, when Yushiro disappears:
---> '''Ataka''': Just how many teenage boys in SSDF uniforms do you think are here anyways?
---> '''Mirai''': Um...actually i've been [[{{Bifauxnen}} mistaken for one]]...a few times...

''Gasaraki'' was produced by {{Sunrise}}, directed by Ryosuke Takahashi of ''Anime/ArmoredTrooperVotoms'' fame and originally aired in 1998. Creator/{{ADV Films}} released a translated version. The script was primarily written by Toru Nozaki but also included the contributions of Chiaki J. Konaka and Yuichiro Takeda. There is a bit of notable trivia for more recent anime fans as the first big "series-wide" directorial-related job a certain Goro Taniguchi had - he was "assistant director" for the series and helped to make it (somewhat) comprehensible. His work here would lead to him being allowed to fully direct and produce ''Anime/{{Planetes}}'' (which could not possibly be more different from this show) and ''Franchise/CodeGeass'' (which, on some level, might be seen as an alternative take on a couple of the same themes as ''Gasaraki'', just [[ByronicHero from a different viewpoint]]).
