* SmugSnake: In the manga, the viscount who amuses himself by hunting TheMostDangerousGame is most certainly one. Along with his little hobby, he also treats his household staff like crap and is supremely confident in his own [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections untouchable status]] (and possession of a tank) when the Pumpkin Scissors confront him. He tries his little hunting schtick on [[MuggingTheMonster Randel]]. [[spoiler:It's rather satisfying to see how badly this goes for him; his overconfidence rapidly disintegrates into weeping, begging for his life, and wetting himself.]]

* HuntingTheMostDangerousGame: A noble in the second episode of the anime (as well as in the manga) does this. ''With a [[TankGoodness tank]].'' Against unarmed peasants who are chained together at the wrists.

* ImprobableAge: Alice is justified, as she's a noble out of officer school (in the prologue). She's still in her teens in the series proper, but younger people have fought in WorldWarOne (see below).

* {{Kaiserreich}}: This is very much Germany, especially in the dub, where German accents abound and the occasional German word sneaks into the dialogue...which, if history is to be followed, [[WorldWar2 means things are about get a lot worse]].

* WorldWarOne: It's blatantly a fantasy analogue of post-WWI.

* FriendToAllChildren: Oland, as befitting his GentleGiant status, is shown to be this at least in a small way. An abandoned, inconsolable baby is only calmed when it's placed in Oland's arms, and in a later episode, Oland sacrifices a good portion of his coat to make mittens for impoverished children.

-->'''2nd episode mook:''' "They will be heralded by the blue light of the Will-o'-Wisp! Reload, you can't afford to play around this time! Reload! For the love of God, reload! You can burn out their eyes, even tear out their arms, but they'll never stop advancing! They will disregard their own lives, and attack at point blank range! They have marched away from life itself to pull the trigger that brings death! They are the legend of the battlefield, they are the phantom warriors of the 901st anti-tank troop! Guided by the Will-o'-Wisp! Bringers of Death! TÖTEN SIE!"

* AbsurdlySpaciousSewer: One in which a number of families live in, being too poor and demoralized to live above ground. It's a European FantasyCounterpartCulture, so it makes some sense. Also, they share it with what can only be described a [[PunkPunk protopunk]] [[KillItWithFire flamethrower]] [[Franchise/BioShock Big Daddy]].

** In an episode where the group is stranded in an abandoned cabin in the mountains, Oland awkwardly suggests that he and the lieutenant sleep together "like sheep" [[IntimateHealing in order to keep warm]]. It goes about as well as you'd expect, though she does end up agreeing to it.

** For those curious, that's a little bigger than the ammunition used in anti-tank rifles, which have a recoil strong enough to pop an average person's shoulder out of their socket.
