* GunPorn[=/=]TechnologyPorn: There's way less MaleGaze than you might expect from a show like this, mostly because the camera is far more interested in long, drooling shots of the many and various tanks. Even the ''BeachEpisode'' shows Yukari trying several Special Forces diving suits in addition to the expected bikinis...

* ImplacableMan: Or rather, Implacable Tank, in the form of the [[spoiler:Panzer VIII Maus]]. It just will not stop, until it is taken down by a tactic ''no one'' could have seen coming.


Added DiffLines:

* TheJuggernaut: in the form of the [[spoiler:Panzer VIII Maus]]. It will not stop, even if four tanks fire on it at once. It will move unstoppably towards its target. [[spoiler: Defeating it requires some innovative thinking from Miho, a four tank combo tactic, and a heroic sacrifice.]]

Miho Nishizumi is a sixteen-year-old scion of a legendary Sensha-do family who, due to a past trauma, has become reluctant to pilot tanks and transferred away from Kuromorimine Women's College, where her family has made a name, into Ōarai Girls' Academy, a little-known school ''ship'' docked in a little town of the same name, which has not fielded a Sensha-do team for the last twenty years. As fate would have it, the Student Council decided to take advantage of the buildup to the upcoming National Sensha-do Championships to revive their Sensha-do elective... and push Miho into leading Ōarai's first Sensha-do class in two decades, whether she likes it or not.

* HelmetsAreHardlyHeroic: A tank version. Most of the notable tank commanders in Oarai and their rivals are seen fighting "unbuttoned"[[note]]Which is open-hatched an looking outside away from the tank protection[[/note]]. [[CastOfSnowflakes Since most of Oarai's Senshado team are important]], we usually see them peering out of their tanks, whereas in the rival schools, their team captain and second command are usually unbuttoned while we never see the crew of the less important tanks.

** In the movie, the secret codes that Darjeeling and Maho use to communicate by radio are the same code phrases broadcast by British Intelligence to alert the French Resistance that the Allied invasion of Normandy was about to begin.

** In contrast with the above, Key fom Saunders has his own personal creed: "[[SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped This is Sensha-do, not war. Your tank will cry if you are a bad person!]]".

*** Even Miho shares that opinion: "There's no path a tank cannot traverse! Tanks move forward even under enemy fire... No matter how tough it is, we must think of a way to overcome!"

* BadassCreed: Several. But two of them are the most relevant for the plot.
** Maxims of the Nizishumi style as explained by Shiho and Maho: "Nishizumi-style Senshado means always finding a way to move forward. There is no running away in the Nishizumi-style. If you shoot, you hit, if you defend, you defend strong, if you advance, you advance without falter. Iron rules and a heart of steel. That is what defines the Nishizumi school."
