* ForTheEvulz: Seems to be Delphine's motivation for most of her actions, such as not intervening when Dissith ships disregard the rules of engagement in the first fight, and sometimes she seems to enjoy watching people suffer and/or die. [[spoiler: It's even implied that she deliberately allowed the climate to become unbalanced in order to pit Dissith and Anatore against each other.]]

* JabbaTableManners: The guild, enough to make Jabba himself look like a gentleman. Guild connoisseurs take ''pride'' at how a tiny morsel of succulent meat took the lives of dozens of men to acquire and how a slice of fish is washed with enough water to slake a family's thirst. After all, so they reason, the sacrifice makes the food all the more tasty.

After all, so they reason, the sacrifice makes the food all the more tasty. Claus, an ''orphan'' of the Guild's endless war, is increasingly horrified by each dish, poignantly reminiscing about Lavie's sandwiches just to keep from screaming.



* LowCultureHighTech: The nations of Dissith and Anatore have to ''rent'' the anti-gravity engines of their FlyingAircraftCarrier fleets from the Guild; complete with engineers to maintain them. If the ship takes too much damage, the engineers yank a few levers, tear the engine free and let everyone else aboard crash and burn. Sometimes the Guild recalls engines out of ''[[KickTheDog spite]].''

** Played straight in the second half of the series once the Dissith and Anatore form TheAlliance in order to take out the Guild.

* WorldHalfFull: Figuratively and literally, as the Guild is allowing Dissith to glaciate while Anatore suffers from drought.

* AceCustom: the ''Silvana''. Equipped with the heaviest and strongest armor around, loaded for bear with highly destructive artillery, and with a spacious belly full of combat Vanships --a novel concept in aerial warfare-- and at the same time, smaller and more maneuverable than standard airships . And, unlike the ''Urbanus'' class, there is only one ''Silvana'' around, and it's under Alex Rowe's control.

Oh, and it's the only one with an unregistered Claudia Unit; every other ship has a bunch of Guilders hitching a ride inside its Unit, waiting to yank a switch and drop the rest of the ship out of the sky at the Guild's orders.

Added DiffLines:

* ExtremeSpeculativeStratification: The Guild are the ruling class of the planet who live in spectacular structures above the clouds and jealously preserve their advanced technology for their own use alone. The people living on the actual planet, on the continents of Anatoray and Disith, are forced to war with one another for control of the small (and thanks to the Guild's carelessness, shrinking) habitable areas. The Guild occasionally lends them weaponry to keep the war going, as they regard it as a source of entertainment.

* TwoDSpace: Addressed in the first episode -- while there is the entirety of the upper sky left empty during war, it's a breach of the chivalry which regulates war to use it.

** There's also the little matter of making the middle of each ship thin with all that exposed framework. WordOfGod is that it's supposed to mimic a woman's body. A woman's body that is instantly torn apart by a single well-placed shot, while their enemies take a huge pounding to put down...

Added DiffLines:

* MacGuffinSuperPerson: The first half of the anime concerns Claus and Lavie (and later, the entire crew of the Silvana) trying to keep Alvis out of the clutches of the Guild. Why they're hunting her isn't revealed until the last episode. [[spoiler: Turns out she's a living "ignition key" for the eponymous space ship.]]
