* ArtifactTitle: While the entire cast is seasoned mages, they barely fit the "Magical Girl" archetype aside from Caro. Teana is a gunslinger, Subaru is [[spoiler: a HollywoodCyborg]], Nanoha and Fate are 20-ish military combat instructor and career officer, Erio is [[TheOneGuy a token male]], and "Lyrical" has not been seen since episode one of season one.

* BeamSpam: Played with. The anime and manga warn that dismissing battle strategy in favor of zerging enemies puts an unhealthy strain on the body. [[spoiler: Foreshadowing as Nanoha's Blaster mode damages her linker core so badly she's recovering years after]]

* ChekhovsSkill: The very first episode starts out with Nanoha blasting through the walls of a burning airport in order to secure a safe path for her to fly out Subaru. In the penultimate episode, the same scene shown again [[spoiler: when Quattro realizes that Nanoha plans to [[DungeonBypass blast through the walls of the Saint's Cradle in order to blast]] ''[[DungeonBypass her]]''.]]

* IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight: [[spoiler: Subaru vs. Ginga]], Nanoha vs. Sankt Kaiser Vivio, and Caro and Erio vs. {{Mind Control}}led Lutecia. Subverted in that talking didn't really help much in any of the cases and the mind controlled parties were only stopped the old-fashioned way - by a thorough befriending. Hey, it's ''Nanoha'' after all.

** Vivio trips in episode 15 and Nanoha tells her to try and stand on her own, but she is unable to do so. [[spoiler: In the finale, Vivio manages to remain standing after being hit with '''Five''' Starlight Breakers because "I can stand on my own".]]
** [[spoiler: When she heads to take care of the Cradle's engine, Vita tells Nanoha "[[BadassBoast The Knight Vita of the Iron Hammer, and the Steel Count Graf Eisen. There's nothing in this world we can't destroy.]]". Hayate says an extended version of the line back to her when [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMoments she lives up to that claim]].]]

** When talking about memories of her original owner in the third sound stage, Agito says "Strangely, my heart feels warm." [[spoiler: Signum says the same thing to her the first time they unison.]]

* ProphecyTwist: A vaguely worded prophecy mentions the "destruction of the ship of law that guards the stars". Everyone assumes, given the seemingly easy conclusion of an earlier part referring to a disastrous terrorist attack, that this refers to the TSAB Headquarters. Turns out, [[spoiler: it's referring to the ancient warship the BigBad manages to excavate, thus prophesying that they'll manage to stop it]].

* SnipeHunt: Lutecia's search for the Lost Logia turns out to be this. Jail tells her to find a specific Relic with the promise that it would bring back her mother. [[spoiler: Later, it's revealed that her mother was not only not dead but an enemy of his placed in a forced coma. He only gave her the task to keep her loyal.]]

* WhamEpisode: Episode 17. Several details about character's backstories are revealed, and the bad guys for the most part score an overwhelming win. [[spoiler: Subaru and Ginga are combat cyborgs like the Numbers, Erio is confirmed to be a clone of the original Erio Mondial, the press conference attack is revealed to be a diversion for an attack on Riot Force 6's base, which leaves it utterly wrecked, Vivio and Ginga are kidnapped and most of the heroes who aren't too late to do anything are left either badly damaged/wounded.]]

* MilitaryMoe: In contrast to previous entries in the franchise, the magical girls in this series operate as a military unit, with at least MildlyMilitary discipline, instead of being temporary assistants to enforcement operations.

* DeclarationOfPersonalIndependence: Vivio. When Nanoha and Fate first adopt her, Nanoha is all about letting her stand on her own - literally, saying that they should let her get to her feet on her own when she trips while running towards them. Fate, on the other hand, instantly runs to her side to help her up. In the finale, after Nanoha defeats a possessed Vivio by unleashing her most powerful attack directly at her, leaving Vivio in a crater, she's just about to run to help her up... when Vivio stops her, insisting that "I can stand up myself." And she does. And it is awesome.

* DeusExitMachina: During the press conference, Nanoha, Fate and Hayate are required to turn over their Devices to the Forwards in order to go in. This costs them valuable time when Scaglietti's forces attack.
