* AffectionateParody: Van's ever-changing surname is a gentle poke at [[{{Trigun}} Vash the Stampede]].

* XMeetsY: And no, not just for [[WordSaladTitle the title]], as fitting a title as it may be; often called "''{{Trigun}}'' with giant robots" as noted in the main article.

* MsFanservice: Well there's Carmen and her 99 cm bust and her ImpossiblyCoolClothes. Fasalina goes into [[FetishFuelStationAttendant the other territory]]. Then we have Priscilla, the DanceBattler.

* DrinkOrder: A subverted version, as {{Badass}} Van typically drinks milk and can't handle alcohol. Similarly, Ray only drinks water; but it's not specified as to whether he's also a [[CantHoldHisLiquor teetoler]] or if he really just wants a clear head.

* BadAss: Van and Ray, most obviously.
** BadassBystander: The townspeople in the first episode. They're oppressed by a gang of heavily armed criminals who, during the course of the episode, bring in a mecha, but when the shooting starts, they pick up weapons and join the fight. While they can't do anything about the mecha, they hold their own against the {{villain of the week}}'s [[{{Mook}} goons]].
** BadassCape: Ray's Armour (Volkain) has one, in the 'shredded wraith-like' variety. See also CapedMecha below for its functionality.
** BadassCrew: The good guys and bad guys form one of each, though the good guy team takes a little longer to form.
** BadassLongcoat: A swallowtail tuxedo, specifically.
** BadassNormal: Characters like Carmen99 who manage to kick ass without armors. Ray's Volkain is this compared to the armors of the Original Seven: it's a mining armor that's been modified to carry guns.

* AManIsNotAVirgin: Averted - Van ''is'', and is actually fairly set on maintaining his chastity; the only major characters to get any are on the villain's side... and surprisingly graphically.
** The announcer at one point even explicitly states the man who did have sex is a "boy" where Van is called a "man".



* SexAsRiteOfPassage: Invoked by the narrator, who says "When no one was looking, a boy became a man." Interestingly enough, this is averted in a later narration; [[spoiler: Michael]] (who at the very least had sex once) is referred to as a boy, while Van (still a virgin) is referred to as a man.

While on first glance the series looks like (and is occasionally described as) "''Manga/{{Trigun}}'' with giant robots", this is a grievous oversimplification. The series takes a few episodes to get started, but is amazingly well-constructed (with almost nothing in the way of {{Filler}}), and comes to an excellent conclusion. This is also one of the very, very few shows that the [[HumongousMecha mecha]] board of 4chan (where a large number of the HumongousMecha otaku gather) nearly unanimously have little to no complaints about.

This series is often accused as a [[Main/TheyCopiedItNowItSucks Trigun and Cowboy Bebop copy]], but it's wrong, of course. There is more to it than it meets the eye.
