* EvenEvilHasStandards: Despite trying to destroy the human race, the Demon sisters frequently come off as more morally upright than the Anarchy sisters. Case in point, they are shocked that Panty would let Brief die if it meant she and Stocking would be able to kill both of them. Scanty in particular, is appalled that they wouldn't even bother to learn his name despite it all.

** Both soundtrack [=CDs=] have the girls nude in the art style used for the TransformationSequence. The first cover compounds it by having he girls covered is a white substance. [[WildMassGuessing Many fans think it's either semen or frosting]].

* DefeatEqualsExplosion: Every Ghost defeated by Panty and Stocking. When this happens, it cuts to a [[StylisticSuck cheesy]] live-action model of the Ghost being blown up with pyrotechnics. This becomes a plot point in episode 8 when Panty and Stocking are on trail for murdering a ghost named Mr. Husband Petter. Their monkey defense attorney points out that the victim didn't explode as he would have if he had been killed by the Anarchy Sisters, and that the marks on the body give away the real murderer as [[spoiler:Mrs. Petter]]. Also, in episode 13, [[spoiler:[[ScaryBlackMan Garterbelt]] and [[BigBad Corset]] explode the same way when killed, with Garterbelt even ''un-exploding'' when he is brought back to life, complete with a reversed DeathCryEcho]].

** The mutual nose picking scene in "The Runny", which somehow manages be more explicit than most actual sex scenes.
** "Trans-homers" has a scene just as, if not even ''more'' [[IKEAErotica explicit with screwing]]. As in [[VisualPun twisting an actual screw]]. ItMakesSenseInContext.

Evil creatures called Ghosts have begun attacking Daten City, a city located on the border of Heaven and Earth. In response, Heaven sends down two [[FallenAngel less-than-heavenly angels]] (who also happen to be sisters) to stop the Ghosts: Panty, an [[LovableSexManiac incredibly promiscuous]] blonde who can turn her panties into guns, and Stocking, a [[ElegantGothicLolita goth girl]] with an [[SweetTooth eternal craving for sweets]] who can turn her stockings into swords. Aided by their dog Chuck and guided by Father Garterbelt (a black priest with a titanic afro and a variety of sexual fetishes), the sisters fight ghosts in incredibly sexy, exciting, and ''[[WidgetSeries just plain old weird]]'' ways.

Gainax created 2010's ''Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt'' with a strange ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls''-esque style (save for a handful of scenes rendered in a "regular" anime style), and in numerous aspects, it has become the weirdest show Studio Gainax has ''ever'' produced to date. A number of fans consider it [[UpToEleven even weirder than ]] ''Anime/{{FLCL}}'' (which ''really'' says a lot), though others will say it sits on par with the batshit insane ''Anime/DeadLeaves''. Each episode is divided in two mini-episodes, save for the last two ones.

* OneHundredAndEight: Two instances in Episode 5-A. Stocking's eating a sweet composed of 108% concentrated egg cream, or so she thinks, and then the party for the 108th anniversary of Oscar H. Genius' company.

** Stocking also does a crazed variation in "The Diet Syndrome" to indicate that dieting is driving her [[LaughingMad batshit insane]].

* NoodleIncident: We never ''do'' learn about "that little incident" that happened the last time Garterbelt and [[spoiler:Corset]] met before the series began, though it did seem to leave some kind of huge yellow cross-shaped scar on both of their chests, which mirror each other's.
* NonIndicativeTitle: "[[Franchise/BackToTheFuture Chuck To The Future]]" actually hasn't anything to do with time travel...[[MindScrew we think]]. It ''is'' an episode [[DayInTheLimelight focused around Chuck]], however.
** And also, this series is '''NOT''' a {{Hentai}} at all. It is {{Ecchi}}, however.

* {{Nosebleed}}: Used in "The Runny" to propel a blimp into the moon... [[ItMakesSenseInContext Long story]]. Brief gets one now and then, most noticeably when finds out that Panty's ear is an erogenous zone. Considering the series being very ecchi, it is used very rarely though.

* NobodyPoops: Averted.
** Panty is shown clearly taking a dump in "Excretion without Honor and Humanity" and the episode's Ghost is a conglomerate of feces that sucks people down toilets. Also, Stocking is shown on the toilet in "The Turmoil of the Beehive".

** Though at times, it can be unclear whether it was ''meant'' to be intentional. As some episodes, like "If the Angels Wore Swimsuits", appear to be of lower quality compared to the rest of the show.
* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: We never get to see Garterbelt's battle with [[spoiler: Zombie Panty & Stocking]].

* [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Our Angels]], [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Demons]], [[OurGhostsAreDifferent and Ghosts Are Different]]
* PantyShot: Literally. Panty's panties can turn into a gun.
** As a result of this, it took seven whole episodes for her to play this trope straight, finally doing so in "... of the Dead". Stocking even beat her to it in Episode 3 (Episode 1 if you count their transformation sequence, you can see Stocking's black panties as she's removing her stocking).

Stocking are very crude, lustful, and destructive.

** Scanty subverts this ''twice'' in "Les Diaboliques" (It's too dark to see, but just as well cause she's going commando) and then later plays it straight in "Panty + Brief" and "Bitch Girls 2 Bitch".

* {{Eagleland}}: Daten City embodies Type 2 {{Eagleland}}...and is next to "Little Tokyo", with a color-shifted American flag featuring Blue and White stripes, and a field bearing the Japanese Rising Sun. Probably as a nod to the show being a WesternAnimation-style show made in Japan.
