* 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.

Thus begins ''Gun X Sword'', a SpaceWestern series produced by Goro Taniguchi (best known for ''Anime/CodeGeass'' and ''Anime/{{Planetes}}''), that uses a very different definition of the term - more of a Space SpaghettiWestern.

* BottomlessMagazines: Averted with Ray. His personal sidearm can fire so many bullets because it has a magazine as long as Van's sword, and all of the guns on Volkain are fed by massive ammo hoppers and drum-magazines. Volkain's transport vehicle even has a system which automatically switches out empty drums for new ones.

* CaretakerReversal: In the first SickEpisode, Wendy cares for Van while he suffers a fever. At the end of the episode she collapses, and he (fully-healed by that time) has to carry her back to shelter and put her to bed.

* MindScrew: The Claw is the weirdest "villian" you will ever see, and his actions and kills (he does kill over the course of the anime) as described by the characters do not match up with how he's portrayed. Episode 12 is the weirdest WhamEpisode, because [[spoiler: it is entirely based around "DidWeJustHaveTeaWithCthulhu" while being ''right next to The Claw''. In summary, a cold-blooded murderer is having tea with one of the main characters, and then casually asking that character to join him]]. It makes sense in written format, but the anime says completely otherwise.

*** In particular the Anime/BraveSeries and Anime/GaoGaiGar. It uses the "G-Stone" sound effect during its transformation and strikes a pose from King K-Der's Mega Fusion. The "[[BilingualBonus El Inferno Y Cielo]]" attack in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsK'' even ''looks'' like its namesake from ''Anime/GaoGaiGar''. In the episode of their debut, the enemy pilot who says the robot is outdated? Voiced by NobuyukiHiyama.

** The Wendy/Van teamup itself reflects that of Film/TrueGrit's Mattie Ross and Rooster Cogburn. Wendy and Mattie's revolvers are even proportioned and handled similarly.
** The series' premise is part ''Film/KillBill'', following [[DistaffCounterpart The Groom]] chopping his way to revenge. The Claw turns out to be [[spoiler:an old guy with slicked back, shoulder length, white hair]].
