* FauxActionGirl: Much is made of Nadia being a circus acrobat but these skills are seldom put to use As the first episode demonstrated, LeParkour skills are great if you're only saving yourself. Not so great when you've got an acrobatically disinclined {{geek}} along for the ride.

* BrokenAesop: One of the gripes with the Island and Africa filler episodes, apart from giving very little advancement to the story, is the fact that these tamper with Nadia and Jean's relationship progress, setting Nadia two steps back and regressing to being cruel and unkind to Jean, and more detrimentally, painting her as irrational, unrepentant, and '''unapologetic''' ([[CharacterDerailment which is very uncharacteristic of her]]). This is even more jarring when the story returns to its main course, setting a marked contrast when Nadia is kind to Jean once again in a rational, logical segue as the story line was meant to be. ''Skip the Island and Africa arcs''.
** The ''Nadia Omake Theater'' shorts show that Jean is romantically attracted to Electra; the main series actually makes a point to state that '''this is not the case''' and it's a conflict caused by Nadia misrepresenting and misinterpreting Jean's relationship and admiration of Electra. Jean mostly sees Electra as a person that is intellectually nurturing and a sort of "older sister" to follow.

Set in 1889 and ''extremely'' loosely based on Creator/JulesVerne's ''Literature/TwentyThousandLeaguesUnderTheSea,'' ''Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water'' tells the story of Nadia, a girl who's trying to find out about her past, Jean, a boy who wants to build a flying machine, and the Blue Water, a mysterious gem of Nadia's with strange powers. Their world is home to two shadowy groups in conflict: Neo-Atlantis, who want to rule the world, and the crew of the submarine ''Nautilus'', who have sworn to oppose Neo-Atlantis. These two plots are not unconnected...

* DeathByIrony: [[spoiler:Electra is electrocuted (although she did not die). Jean, the boy that loves to fly, falls (he gets better). Nemo is riddled with bullets by the son and daughter he thought he had killed at Tartessos. Finally, the Atlantean-supremacist [[BigBad Gargoyle]] dies while discovering his true nature he is a human adopted by the real Atlanteans, and he never found out before entering an energy field that turns non-Atlanteans to a pillar of salt. Oops.]]

* InsultBackfire: If you tell Gargoyle that he's not human, he'll take it as a compliment. That's the '''whole point''of what he's been doing for most of his life.

* ImpoverishedPatrician: Grandis is a former aristocrat from Italy, while Ayerton is supposedly a British Count, though he is notoriously off his rocker. [[spoiler:Turns out Ayerton is actually a wealthy aristocrat all along]].



* HeIsNotMyBoyfriend: Nadia obviously has feelings for Jean, but she impulsively declares otherwise to both Grandis and Marie when both call her out about it. (Naturally, since she has never known anything about love before, she does not know how to acknowledge it or express herself.)
** Even funnier because in episodes 17 and 30, after she denies it to Marie, she ends up approaching Jean for attention anyway (the former episode to give him a snack of seaweed).
