*** Later on [[spoiler: when the fake Mitakihara blows up]] there are voices saying "[[http://personal.bgsu.edu/~dcallen/Fort-Da.html Fort! Da!]]", which is a reference to a story by UsefulNotes/SigmundFreud about a boy who made a game of hiding away his toys, Fort meaning "gone" in German, and "Da" meaning back.

Added DiffLines:

* InvincibleHero: [[spoiler:They're all inside Homura's LotusEaterMachine]], so all the heroes are vastly more powerful than usual, with no psychological issues. In addition, Madoka, [[spoiler:Sayaka, and Nagisa]] are all {{Physical God}}s, making the final battle against [[spoiler:Homura's witch and the Incubators]] seem rather one-sided. [[spoiler:But this all gets flipped on its head when Homura takes Madoka's powers to become a demon, and effortlessly overpowers her former angels, leaving Madoka herself (if she regains her memories) as the only plausible threat to her.]]

* GenreSavvy: Homura, of course, but Kyoko to a lesser extent. The movie starts out in a LighterAndSofter Mitakihara where Homura is her Moemura self, Kyoko goes to school, and all five Puella Magi fight as a FiveManBand with Kyubey and Bebe as mascots. Homura ''knows'' that something's up with this, and that Kyoko differs the most from her main series self. Homura therefore persuades Kyoko to take her to her old hometown, which they are unable to reach by bus or by foot. Both of them conclude that [[spoiler:they're being trapped]]. While Homura is the main progenitor, Kyoko deserves credit too for going against what would presumably be her nature as [[spoiler:a brainwashed victim of the fake Mitakihara.]]\\
\\
At the same time, it's actually a subversion because Homura makes a lot of really bad decisions. See CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot. [[spoiler: Sayaka actually lectures Homura for some of her bad decisions, and even Homura admits that she could have figured out the truth earlier if she just stopped to think about it. On the other hand, Homura was sabotaging herself since she's the TomatoInTheMirror that had subconsciously trapped everyone.]]

* BalanceBetweenGoodAndEvil[=/=]EquivalentExchange: Although not explicitly stated, one can argue that ''Rebellion'' takes the anime's balance between hope and despair and wishes and curses to it's LogicalExtreme. [[spoiler:Madoka's ascension as a god causes the birth of a devil... and it's ''Homura''. Somewhat mitigated by the fact that Akuma Homura uses ThePowerOfLove, not despair; however, one can still draw opposites given that Ultimate Madoka can stand for selfless love, and Akuma Homura stands for selfish love, and both loves have opposing ties to hope and despair respectively.]]

Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler: Additionally, she did ask for help twice. She received help from Kyoko, but when she tried to explain herself to Mami, Mami refused to believe her and even asked if she was going crazy.]]


Added DiffLines:

* RealDreamsAreWeirder: [[spoiler: The burnt-out faces, {{Bizarrchitecture}} and especially the infamous Cake Song make a lot more sense once you realize that the world is actually a dream resulting from Homura's being trapped in a LotusEaterMachine.]]

** When the Nightmares attack Hitomi she's in her bedroom, and she then appears to fall through her bed, from where a torrent of red "strings" spews forth. This seems to be a parallel to Glen's death in the original ''Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet'', with the red stuff substituting for the mega-fountain of blood. What are these creatures called again? Yes, ''Nightmares'', in GratuitousEnglish even in the original.

** In the case of [[spoiler:Homura]]: [[spoiler:knowing that the Incubators are trying to exploit Homura's dying to trap her, Madoka goes with her secretaries to manipulate events inside Homura's mental world to avoid Incubators' trap while still saving Homura. They succeed, but they certainly don't expect ''Homura'' of all person to hijack the proceeding]]...

* LookOnMyWorksYeMightyAndDespair: [[spoiler: A personal one for Madoka. She did the impossible: she rescued all of the magical girls that became witches, destroyed all witches in general, and changed the system for the better. At first it looks like she was the only girl who didn't fall prey to naivete and took her time instead of rushing into things like her friends, and finally deified the NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished that went on for so long... only to betrayed by her own best friend and for her wish to come crashing down.]]
