* AdaptationExplanationExtrication: Laharl and Flonne's fate in the ending was a combination of the normal ending and good ending, [[spoiler:in which Laharl spares Lamington and sacrifices his life to bring Flonne back.]] In the game, it makes sense because of them have gone through several scenes of CharacterDevelopment, most notably [[spoiler:Laharl finally calling Flonne by her name after spending almost half the game calling her "You" or "Love Freak".]] The anime's focus on comedy, however, meant they lacked the developing chemistry that made that scene powerful in the first place.

* AdaptationalBadass: The Astro Cannon. While certainly a powerful weapon in the game, it was nothing more than an oversized Dark Cannon, a giant turret, and did nothing particularly special. In the anime, it's a WaveMotionGun powered by a shard from Celestia. While Laharl is able to disable it, it's one of the few things Laharl is unable to tank.

While Laharl is able to make quick work of many battleships in both the game and the anime, the most they are able to do in the game is make a lot of noise. The anime makes them a far more effective threat.

* TheAnimeOfTheGame TheAnimeOfTheGame: Of ''VideoGame/DisgaeaHourOfDarkness''.

* TheAnimeOfTheGame AscendedExtra: Sardia was merely a palette swamp of the Magic Knight class and one of several enemies vying for the throne in the game, being defeated in a single stage and not being heard from again. The anime gives her a slightly different design (She has a ponytail and a modified outfit) and is shown to be rather wealthy and sophisticated demon.

* CanonForeigner: Maharl and the King Darth Blink the III, though Maharl is based off of a character design that Takehito Harada, the main artist for the series, made, but never got around to using.
to:
* CampGay: For whatever reason, Maderas has his more sinister ManipulativeBastard personality dropped and acts disturbingly more effeminate. Still quite manipulative, though. * CanonForeigner: Maharl and the King Darth Blink the III, though Maharl is based off of a character design that Takehito Harada, the main artist for the series, made, but never got around to using. Quite a few background demons are not based on any of the demon classes as well.

The sky darkens and he laughs at the end. Nothing shows him turning back to normal.
* ActionGirl -- Unlike in the games, Etna is less this and more a FauxActionGirl.

* {{Blackmail}} -- [[spoiler: Why Etna works for Maderas, with a slight difference from the original game]] * BadBoss -- Etna, Maderas * BigEater -- Laharl. Perhaps that's how he puts so much power into his Overlord's Wrath spells. * ButtMonkey -- Prinnies, dood! And Vyers.

* ClothingSwitch -- Etna and Flonne get this and a personality switch. * ConspicuousCG -- The Prinny stadium. * DeathAsComedy -- King Krichevskoy, at least at first. Laharl reads in a newspaper that his father died choking on his afternoon snack, in brightly-lit office, in the middle of the day. Laharl has an ImagineSpot of the scene, and laughs. * DoubleEntendre -- Etna has a blatantly innuendo-filled conversation (that we only hear the final part of) with Flonne in about the 4th episode. In fact, Etna does this a lot. * DubNameChange -- ''Inverted''. The boar demons Hoggmeiser and Porkmeister are referred to as Zenisky and Koganesky, which are their names in the original Japanese version of the game. * EverythingsBetterWithPenguins -- As usual, dood! * FanDisservice -- Gordon gets a temp job in a saloon in a white and pink minidress. * FanserviceWithASmile -- Jennifer gets a temp job in a saloon in a white and pink minidress. * FreakyThursday -- In the Netherworld Hall of Treasures, Flonne and Etna swap personalities (and outfits) due to something that Vulcanus set off. * {{Gainaxing}} -- Jennifer. * GroinAttack -- In the below-mentioned conversation Etna has with Flonne after they start travelling together, she mentions that she gave an unidentified nosy guy a very firm kick in the "you know where" (Flonne doesn't know where, though).

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar -- Maharl's take on [[CrowningMomentOfFunny how her parents met.]] She basically all but tells us that [[spoiler: her mom was a prostitute that Kirchevskoy used to hire after his wife died]], to the extent that Etna freaks out and tells her to stop, as she's heard more than enough. * GoldfishPoopGang -- The Defenders of Earth get turned into this after the second episode. * HammerSpace -- Laharl stores his (rather large) sword inside his scarf. * HumongousMecha -- Pringer X. * KnightOfCerebus -- Just like in the video game, [[spoiler:General Carter, the boss of Kurtis]]. * LameExcuse -- The Prinnies ''almost'' noticed that Laharl wasn't a Prinny because he didn't say "dood" after two sentences. Etna covered for him by saying he's sick.

* LaughablyEvil -- Laharl, since this is a comedy anime. Also, Vulcanus in Episode 3. * LethalChef -- Flonne tries cooking for the group in the episode that loosely homages the Prinny World location. Laharl takes a few bite and is sick... although, given Laharl is a CardCarryingVillain who gets freaked out by people just talking about love, peace and joy, and the fact he sprouts a thought bubble in which he is running playfully through a field of flowers and laughing with joy, it could be just that Flonne's food is so chockful of her positive attitudes it's unpalatable to him. But, then again, Flonne states she's never actually cooked before/isn't a very good cook when Laharl demands she make him something to eat.

* LongLostSibling -- Maharl is apparently this. * LoveFreak -- [[TropeNamer Flonne.]] * MadeOfIron -- Laharl. He was poisoned, and instead of dying (like anyone else in the world would have), he slept it off for two years. He can also hold onto Flonne's pendant, which would burn most demons rather badly, but Laharl takes it like a champ. * MythologyGag -- This series could really be considered more of an AlternateContinuity that happens to reference lots of elements from the original game. For example, Maderas calls up a pack of busty (if chastely dressed) succubi and {{catgirl}}s who start chanting positive phrases like "eternal love", which makes Laharl so freaked out he can barely fight. This is a loose adaption of a background effect from an actual fight in the game, which has the effect of cutting Laharal's attack stats by 50%. * OffModel -- Happens often. ** Depending on the artist, Etna's two tufts of hair will either be their usual large size or smaller than her head. [[FromBadToWorse And then it keeps on changing sizes as the scene goes on...]] * PaperThinDisguise -- Etna and Flonne dress up in Prinny suits to sneak into Prinny World. [[VideoGame/{{Disgaea 4| A Promise Unforgotten}} They didn't have enough money to get Laharl a whole suit, so they gave him a hat]]. The actual Prinnies note that Laharl doesn't have the usual VerbalTic, dood, and call him out on it... so the girls cover for him by saying he's sick. * ParodySue -- Maharl, "sister" of Laharl.

* PerversePuppet -- It turns out [[spoiler: Maharl is actually a puppet in the shape of a demon vaguely like a female Laharl. The "doll" she carries everywhere is actually the real demon animating her and using her as a cover. Though this doesn't stop her getting up and walking around on her own in one scene in one of the last episodes.]] * PrettyInMink -- Maharl wears a fur trimmed coat, in a matter just to make her look cuter. * RidiculouslyCuteCritter -- Yeah, dood! * RoadCone -- The ending is a mix of the game's Good and Normal endings: [[spoiler: Laharl spares Seraph Lamington's life, declaring it's what Flonne would have wanted, then uses up his life force to resurrect Flonne as a Fallen Angel, only to reincarnate as a Prinny.]] ** [[spoiler:Also, you'll notice that Laharl manages to turn himself back to normal just before the end credits. Another small divergence.]] * RunningGag -- Flonne gets most of them. She tends to fall flat on her face rather often, and her cooking is not very good. There's also Vyers, who gets depressed over eventually referring to himself as Mid-Boss... on two separate occasions.

* TooDumbToLive -- The Prinnies. They're not too bright in general, but it becomes most obvious when they attempt to establish their own home, Prinny World, on a small floating island... which begins to sink after too many Prinnies show up. They also didn't notice that the loud-mouthed, almost-naked kid with a giant Prinny hat and no VerbalTic actually wasn't a Prinny. * TrailersAlwaysLie -- The two promotional trailers for the anime seemed to stay closer to the source material and even hinted that there would be a battle between Laharl and Baal. None of that appeared in the anime.

He fails, of course, and Lamington punishes him by turning him into a frog - which is both hilarious and satisfying to watch, really]]. * WeBuyAnything -- After raiding several castles for loot, Laharl walks into the nearest general store, and...
