* AncientConspiracy: [[spoiler:The Terraist Church has apparently been using Fezzan to manipulate both the Empire and the Alliance for over a century.]] Subverted in that in the end it doesn't really work.
** That doesn't mean they don't leave their shit-stained mark on history. [[spoiler:[[TearJerker Rest in peace, Yang Wen-li.]]]]
* AndThenWhat: Becomes a prevalent theme of the story towards the end.

* TheAce: Yang Wen-li is a subversion. Yes, he is sometimes lazy, and likes to hit the bottle pretty hard, but if he's leading a battle he WILL win. Period. Even Reinhard von Lohengramm, who has gone through the humiliation of ONLY being defeated when Yang's involved, sees him as a [[WorthyOpponent worthy opponent]] instead of an enemy.
** Yang may be TheAce in anything involving using your head. He hates warfare but ends up being the best tactical genius of the entire series. Walter von Schönkopf commented that even though Yang hates being involved in politics, if he were forced to participate he may well be a political genius as well.
*** Yang is a unique case in that one of his main tactics is relying on the fact that everyone sees him as an Ace, although he doesn't consider himself one. Many of his battle tactics are generally quite simple in design, it's just that everyone in both sides is in such awe of him due to being the "miracle" at El Facil (a situation where he merely followed his heart/gut instead of protocol) and later [[spoiler: the bloodless capture of Iserlohn]] that the majority of his opponents think he's constantly second-guessing them and planning around them in Chessmaster fashion. The reality is he's not, he's merely doing the equivalent of mentally recalling his studies in the history of naval warfare, looking up what strategies counter the ones the opponent is using, then applying that. One could argue that if everyone wasn't always so hesitant to engage him due to his reputation, he wouldn't be nearly as dangerous.
** Julian may also count. His legal guardian is Yang Wen-li and it is not an understatement to say that he has learned a lot from his legendary foster father. Also, unlike Yang, Julian is a genius when it comes to man to man combat as well.
** ''Siegfried Kircheis'', more so than any other character in the show. Seriously, the guy is a military genius possibly greater than even Reinhard or Yang, excels in close combat (being able to fend off ''Schönkopf'' even if it's just for a moment) and is mentioned to be an even better marksman than Reinhard. He was the only person in the show Yang had no counter to, and the latter only narrowly escaped because Bittenfeld charged without being ordered to. And ''then'' he serves as Reinhards [[TheConscience conscience]] and is all around one of the nicest people in the entire story. No wonder that [[spoiler:his death]] lastingly affects the entire course of the story heavily and no wonder that [[spoiler:"If only Kircheis was alive"]] has become a memetic phrase.
*** Kircheis also has the singular honor of not having lost his fleet engagement with Yang. Upon his meeting with Yang Reinhard claims that if Kircheis was alive, they would be looking at Yang's corpse today. Yang had no rebuttal.

* TwoDSpace:
** It's both played straight and subverted at the same time. On one hand, the ships tend to always move 2-dimensionally. On the other hand, their fleets are so freaking huge that in order to pack them into such small areas (since long-range communication is now impossible due to how advanced EM jamming has become), there are ships flying above and below others, so obviously they CAN move 3-dimensionally.
** There was a battle early on in the series where the Alliance, who were lower in space than the Empire fleet, took advantage of the 3rd dimension in space and attacked the Empire at a 45 degree angle, obliterating the Empire's ships that had only forward-facing guns.
** The author tried to justify it by complicated explanations about how their ships are designed, controlled and managed, but inconvincingly.
** The real justification for the two-dimensional space has to do with the fact that all of the battles and tactics are a direct parallel to 19th century naval warfare. If you throw out the fact that oceans are (for all intents and purposes) flat, the parallel doesn't really work.
** [[SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale Tropers Have No Sense of Scale]]: when one takes into account the sheer, jaw-dropping ranges battles are generally fought at (between one and twenty ''lightseconds''), you'd find that the third dimension matters less and less. If both sides have more or less identical maneuverability and sensor resolution, any shifts on the Y-axis are bound to be noticed and corrected for, in much the same way that the ability of troops to move reduces ground combat to a one-dimensional problem. Your ships could gimbal about all they like, but so can the enemy's. And when freakin' ''light'' takes it's sweet ass time schlepping From one end of the battlefield to the other, there's more than enough heads-up to correct for enemy maneuvers, since obviously the maneuvers are detected at faster than the speed of light while mere laser beams move only at c. The 3-d fighting we ''do'' see is typically at melee range, where it belongs, otherwise it's just a waste of fuel.
** 3D movement is shown incredibly often throughout the show, much more than some would like to give it credit for. Just watch the 4th Battle of Tiamat, the very first major confrontation in the series.

* {{Hypocrite}}:Many High noble admirals complain that Reinhard only got his promotions because the Emperor like his sister, but most High noble admirals got their promotions largely because of their family names, not their actual merits.

** Yang is a subdued and peaceful man who despises war. He figures that the more often he wins, the sooner the tide of war will change and he will be able to quietly retire. He is also one of if not ''the'' deadliest of military commanders alive, and his superiors soon find him indispensable on the warfront.

He is also one of if not ''the'' deadliest of military commanders alive, and his superiors soon find him indispensable on the warfront. In other words, his sheer talent prevents him from retiring early.

** [[spoiler:Reinhard wants to die in battle, while Yang would be happy to just die of old age. Yang is assasinated while on a military vessel, whereas Reinhard dies from natural causes.]]
