* AmbiguousInnocence - It's doubtful that Elaine really understands what she's doing whenever she goes on the rampage, but that doesn't make her any less dangerous.
* AmputationStopsSpread - The Genocyber does this in episode 3 to stop the Vajranoid from corrupting it.
* BarbieDollAnatomy - Diana in her cyber-body, Elaine after she takes Diana's body whether or not she's in the form of Genocyber, the two cyborgs in the first episode.
* BlindSeer - Mel, from the fourth and fifth episodes, tries to obtain money by fortune telling with her amazing psychic powers.
* BodyHorror - A lot of it shows up, but the freaky way in which the two cyborg guns-for-hire remorph their bodies to take on the Genocyber has to get top billings.
* CainAndAbel - Diana hates Elaine because their "father" loves Elaine more and regards Diana as just a tool to control her. This leads to her killing Elaine... [[DeathByIrony only to have her own body stolen by Elaine afterwards]].
* ClusterFBomb - The dub of the first 3 episodes. Due to the dark, gritty CyberPunk atmosphere they create, it works extremely well.
* CuteMute - Elaine is mute, although she does occasionally communicate using her PsychicPowers and body language. In the manga, neither sister was mute.
* CyberPunk - Interestingly enough, this is one of the few anime that actually sticks to the CyberPunk mold. Most so-called cyberpunk anime is actually PostCyberPunk.
* DumbMuscle - Elaine is a rare PsychicPowers version, officially having the brain of an animal but tremendous Vajra reserves. This is precisely ''why'' she's so dangerous, as she has all that power and little higher reasoning to hold her back when she lashes out.
* {{Dystopia}} - Come episode 4, the OVA switches from the after-mentioned Cyberpunk society to a full blown Dystopia. [[created as a result of Elaine's self-proclaimed war against humanity.]]
* EyeScream - One of various examples of the {{Gorn}} in the manga. In fact, it actually happens twice- once to a random RedShirt in the first chapter, and once to Diana in the third chapter. It also happens a few times in the anime, most noticeably in the first episode where the title mecha uses one cyborg mook's eye sockets as a hand-hold to '''tear its spine out.'''
* [[FacelessGoons Faceless]] MechaMooks - Faceless and mecha, yes, but the mook part is played with. In the manga, they're very talkative and other than one [[NoHoldsBarredBeatDown beating the living crap out of Diana]], their badassery is something of an InformedAbility. However, in the anime, we're given a close-up view of the handiwork of about 20: a hospital hallway absolutely covered in horribly mutilated corpses and body parts, followed by them horribly torturing the only witness. The most recognizable corpse is a nurse, whose head slowly detaches itself and falls off to the right, tendons visibly and audibly just snapping as it does so.

* BarbieDollAnatomy - AnimationBump: While the animation in general is of very high quality, the moment when the Genocyber tears one of the robots clean in two from first person is done in noticeable higher quality.
* BarbieDollAnatomy:
Diana in her cyber-body, Elaine after she takes Diana's body whether or not she's in the form of Genocyber, the two cyborgs in the first episode.

* ForTheEvulz - The FacelessGoons slaughter a bunch of hospital workers and mutilate a detective for no apparent reason in the first episode. There's also the whole, you know, torturing two innocent girls to make them go nuts and form a large green demon-robot-thing for no reason bit.
* {{Gorn}} - The OVA contains such delightful sights as the aforementioned hospital scene and a scene of children being shredded by helicopter miniguns; the former is legitimately horrific, whereas the latter could be considered {{Narm}}.
* GrandTheftMe - Elaine becomes the Genocyber by taking over Diana's body and apparently casting out or destroying Diana's psyche in the process.
* HarmfulToMinors - The entire manga is essentially Elaine and Diana getting tortured.
* HighPressureBlood - Surprisingly, only one usage is noticed. In the first episode, a mook is given visions of bugs crawling in his head by an unconscious Elaine, which prompts him to tear open his scalp, causing blood to spray all over the surroundings. The rest of the gore is rather realistic, especially in the second episode; [[TooMuchInformation the gunshot wounds aside from a head-explosion are disturbingly life-like, and they actually took care to draw the tibia and fibula snapping along with the muscle tearing on an ankle shot.]]
* HowWeGotHere - The first chapter of the manga is set at the end of the story.

* MindScrew - There is almost no exposition whatsoever aside from a MadScientist explaining how the PsychicPowers work in the beginning of the first episode. This makes the totally unexplained TimeSkip between the first two episodes even more bizarre.
* PainfulTransformation - The creation of the Genocyber, supposedly. We see it from within her psyche, and get glimpses of [[spoiler: Diana's head on a fully robotic body]] afterwards, while her screams for [[spoiler: the EnergyBeing Elaine to get out of her head]] play in the background.
* PinkMist - A child is shot in the head with a helicopter minigun in the series' absolute most infamous scene. It essentially vaporizes everything above his upper lip.
* PersonOfMassDestruction - Once the two sisters come together to form Genocyber, ''nothing'' is left standing. A relatively minor scuffle between it and two cyborg mobsters [[spoiler: completely obliterates the entirety of Hong Kong.]]
* PsychicPowers - Called "Vajra", but the idea is the same. It's more akin to the "vectors" from Manga/ElfenLied, in function if not in form.
* ShoutOut - A very weird one. The first episode, in both languages, starts with a scientist asking [[Music/{{REM}} "What's the frequency, Kenneth?"]].

* SoundtrackDissonance - An odd case where the series main theme is this, the upbeat "Fairy Dreaming".
* SuperSoldier - The purpose behind Elaine and Diana's existence.
* TheFuture - The third story--which comprises the fourth and fifth episodes--is set in the year 2400.
* TimeSkip - The time between the first and second arcs is unspecified, but the time between the second and third arc is about 400 years.
* TransformationTrauma - The OVA practically runs on this and {{Gorn}}.
* UnskilledButStrong - Elaine has tremendous power, but her ability to control it with finesse is hindered by her limited mindset. She simply reacts on instinct, unwitting of the chaos she causes as a consequence.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds - Elaine.
