* CanonDisContinuity: When the show returns in Episode 35 after the infamous Island/Africa arc, it all but neglects the events that happened in them (save episodes 30 & 31), suggesting they were never intended to be part of the plot.\\

* 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.

* TeenGenius: Jean. The kid beat the Wright Brothers by twenty-four years! He also invented a helicopter. And a rocket. And a music recorder. Which, if you take it at face value, means he invented the speaker, the microphone, the amplifier, and vinyl records. Which means he may well have invented the vacuum tube. And plastic. He also seems to have invented the Ukulele.\\

* EarnYourHappyEnding: Jean goes through a LOT of trouble just to win Nadia's heart. He sacrifices inventions, puts his life on the line, suffers unjust abuse, and even suffers heartbreak at points. But his patience and persistence pays off as Nadia gradually falls for him.

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: (Also doubles as AmericansDontLikeTingle.) Some viewers find Nadia to be offputting, what with her stubborn, unbending views, bad temper, and ability to misjudge people. Especially during the filler arc.

** Hanson and Sanson put up with a lot of abuse from Grandis, though they are mutually well aware that without them she has no one else; unofficially, more than servants they are her caretakers and truest friends. Likewise, she is more protective of them than she lets on, and she is deeply hurt when they leave her behind.

* AngerBornOfWorry: Nadia and Grandis are livid at Hanson, Sanson and Jean for coming awfully close to dying in the ''Gratan'' while attempting to clear a path for the ''Nautilus'' to squeeze out of a mine trap set by Gargoyle. They save the ship indeed, but the three are greeted with sound slaps across the face for worrying their women.

** Nadia, on the other hand, is shown to be remorseful from the start (she had previously yelled at Jean unfairly earlier when they were forced to separate rooms) and is only mentioned to just breaking down.

* BabiesEverAfter: The title character (Nadia, married to Jean), the narrator ([[spoiler: Sanson]] of the TerribleTrio, married to a ''much'' younger lady, [[spoiler:[[ShesAllGrownUp the now grown-up Marie]])]], and the most "complex" character ([[spoiler:Electra]]). Hanson, the other half of the team, has kids but we don't see them (or his wife for that matter). Grandis (the boss of the trio), notably is still single, and loving it.

Hanson, oddly, is shown to be single, even though he talks about getting married someday.



** Nadia easily loses her temper over trivial matters, particularly when anybody eats meat. (Mostly, though, it's shouts of frustration related to her inability to convey what she ''wants'' from Jean.) She eventually changes that behaviour, and of course, Jean [[EasilyForgiven constantly forgives her]].

* ChainReactionDestruction: The apocalyptic week that wiped the Tartessians off the planet began with the destruction of the Tower of Babel, which rained lightning over the country, followed by fire storms and an all-encompassing flood that didn't even leave evidence of a ''country ever being there''. It's surprising that anyone was able to survive a catastrophe of such an enormous proportion.

It's surprising that anyone was able to survive a catastrophe of such an enormous proportion.



* CloudCuckooLander: Ayerton becomes tremendously unhinged when he falls off a ship from the American Navy. He washes up at an unusual island, has several encounters with the Grandis gang there, and his altered state makes him think that they are demons who are harassing him; also, the artificial island where they are constantly defies the laws of physics, making him tremendously paranoid. The gang eventually reveals that they buried him in the beach in the first place because he drank all of their booze, is a pathological liar, and was a huge Jerkass to begin with. When they free him, he tries to become the voice of reason in the team, though he completely fails to become an asset where even the 4-year-old girl has something to contribute. When they finally get off the island, the team constantly struggles to keep him from becoming a liability and causing trouble. In the end, they trust him enough to leave him in charge of Marie and King.

** Marie argues that she somewhat mistrusts Electra and that she finds her to be rather creepy, but that she likes Captain Nemo, stone face and all. [[spoiler:Guess what Electra does immediately after Nemo says his goodbyes... yup! She shoots him and threatens to kill him]].

* HeroicBSOD: While [[GadgeteerGenius Jean]] is, at heart, a [[ThePollyanna very optimistic and cheerful character]], there are at least two moments where he becomes completely depressed: first, in Episode 15, when he traumatically overhears a sailor he befriended gassed to death (he is surprisingly melancholic after that), and then, in episode 16, when he learns that [[spoiler:[[BigBad Gargoyle]] killed his father]]. This latter revelation crushes [[GadgeteerGenius Jean]] so much that he considers giving up inventing until Nadia, who doesn't like seeing him so gloomy, tries to cheer him up and succeeds by suggesting he build another aircraft so that they can go on another flight. He also has one off-camera when he is under the impression [[spoiler:that Nadia succeeded in committing suicide]]; according to Sanson, Jean was horrified.

** In episode 20, Marie amusingly pretends to do this to get Nadia to admit that she wants to visit Jean. (She does so again in episode 21 in response to the attack. And it's not played for laughs.)

* MyWayOrTheHighway: It's revealed that Jean's inventions fail not because he's a bad inventor (he's excellent otherwise, as it's impressive what he has accomplished ''on his own''), but because he's staunchly against receiving feedback from people that can help him. He eventually realizes that this will get him nowhere and accepts Hanson's input.

* ShadowArchetype: Most of the characters in ''Nadia'' have considerable problems with expressing their true feelings and thoughts because of shame and regret (Nemo), doubt (Jean), anger (Electra), or simply because they don't know how to do it (Nadia).
