* OncePerEpisode: Mako interrupting whatever conversation Ryuko is having with one of the villains, or whatever exposition is taking place, and giving a speech. They're usually only tangentially related to the current situation and always accompanied by excessive gesturing. [[ChewbaccaDefense They're also extremely effective at baffling villains into silence and dropping whatever subject they were currently on]].

* ShamefulStrip: Inverted. Satsuki lectures Ryuko about being ashamed of being seen in her Kamui in Episode 3, saying "This is the form in which a Kamui is able to unleash the most power! The fact that you are embarrassed by the values of the masses only proves how small you are! If it means fulfilling my ambitions, I will show neither shame nor hesitation, even if I must bare my breasts for all the world to see!"

** Ryuko and Mako's relationship has some clear romantic undertones to it, though nothing ever really happens between them. [[spoiler:Ryuko does agree to go on a date with Mako if she survives the final battle, but it's ambiguous whether or that has any romantic implications. On the one hand, not only is it common in Japan for girls to go on platonic "dates" with each other, but the end credits of the final episode also show Satsuki joining in on the date. On the other hand, when Mako pictures their date, they're shown holding hands and kissing, which of course may just be [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Mako being Mako]].]]
