* SpiritualSuccessor The ''Spiral Chaos'' games technically are spiritual successors of the Banpresto's Playstation game ''Super Tokusatsu Wars 2001'' which was the first game using the ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' engine, but with human-sized characters from the {{Tokusatsu}} genre like KamenRider, Series/{{Kikaider}}, etc. Both games manage to get one in the shape of ''VideoGame/SuperHeroineChronicle''.

* AllThereInTheManual: Inverted in Leina and Tomoe's cases (since most of their backstories are expanded in the anime series), but played straight with Menace, possibly since her backstory is too ''dark and violent even for QB's levels.''

* ArcWords: ''"Who will emerge victorious? They won’t know that unless they fight!"'' Almost used many times at the beginning and in the end of many parts of the franchise.

She decides to forfeit her title to Claudette, her older sister and decides to go WanderingTheEarth. The Swamp Witch and her minions are still a threat for everyone in the Continent. Irma ends being crippled by a brain-washed Risty and it seems that Echidna will have to take care of her.]].

** CrapsackWorld: In the ''QB Rebellion's'' Illustrated Stories, the whole setting becomes this [[spoiler:after Claudette becomes the queen [[NiceJobBreakingItHero thanks to Leina]] and she starts to invade other countries and raising the taxes.]] While it doesn't reach [[{{Manga/Berserk}} Berserk-style]] levels of Crapsack-iness, the whole Continent becomes a pale shadow of its former glory. On the other hand, the animated adaptation of ''Rebellion'' doesn't change the setting too much, other than the invasions.

** Also recently, there's a non-hentai doujinshi (and also comic strip) named ''Manga/MobileSuitBlade'' in which the girls are depicted as super-deformed versions of many Mobile Suits from the ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' saga. For example, Leina, her sisters, Melona and Aldra are depicted as Mobile Suits from [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Celestial Being]], Airi as the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Gundam Deathscythe]], plus many other examples. And, as this wasn't already ridiculous enough, the same doujinshi also put the girls from Queen's Blade against super-deformed, Gundam-versions of ''[[Franchise/LyricalNanoha Nanoha and Fate.]]''

* MagicIsEvil: Despite being a Fantasy series, there's very few people with genuine magic powers, and many of the supernatural fighting techniques are more akin with those used in the {{Shonen}} genre, rather with those of the fantasy genre (Or sometimes, like Claudette, due of some MacGuffin, like her sword). The only people who use magic powers continuously are The Swamp Witch, who is the main antagonist, Nyx (thanks to Funikura, and even ''Aldra and Delmore'' are afraid of him, despite their origins), Menace (thanks to the her master, The Swamp Witch, and she wasn't a wizard in her former life in first place and more as melee fighter instead) and many of the villains from the ''Spiral Chaos'' games. The only exceptions are the angels (Nanael and Hachiel) and Melpha, but their powers are from divine origins, rather than their own.
** In fact, [[WordOfGod Hobby Japan themselves]] heavily implies that is the case.

* RevisedEnding: The DVD version of the first season fixed a potential PlotHole regarding Melona in the final episode: [[spoiler:In the original TV broadcast, she transforms into the Demon Snake, and she was destroyed along her by Leina, possibly for giving the series a proper ending in the case the series couldn't be given a second season. Since the series received a second season, not to mention her potential death could violate the ContractualImmortality clause used in the franchise regarding named characters, the DVD version retconned this and Melona just summons the Demon Snake, while Melona becomes her shield, and while the the demon was destroyed, she managed to escape in time]].

* SecretTestOfCharacter: Applies in episode 5 of the Utsukushiki Toushi-Tachi OVA, where Nanael plucks a Holy Grape and is banished to the Swamp. Down in the Swamp she eats the grape and decides to become a Fallen Angel, then running amok. After nearly killing both Hachiel and Melpha, she is suddenly returned to heaven by the Chief Angel, who reveals the whole thing is a test of character, which she somehow passed.
* SequelHook: The ending of the anime version of ''Rebellion'' is an obvious hook for a fourth season. However, due to various behind-the-scenes issues (i.e. Menace's Japanese VA being pretty much unable to ever reprise her role), the studio has put the series on hold for now, instead focusing on adapting the AU series ''Grimoire'' into a series of OVAs.

* StatusQuoIsGod: More than the Status Quo is ''Maintained by the Gods'': The whole series (at least during the Leina and Annelotte's sagas) makes it clear the Queen's Blade tournament is possibly the only thing that keeps the whole setting in check, since the whole Continent is recovering from a previous war that happened many decades before, and the gods created the tournament for avoiding another war that could [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt destroy the Continent or even the entire world.]] [[spoiler: In ''Rebellion's'' Illustrated Stories, our heroines, after many battles, decided to restore the former status quo, even if that ''status quo'' is the one who caused the whole mess in first place.

* TranslationConvention: It's heavely implied during all the series that none of the Western characters (Leina, Elina, Nowa, etc.) speaks Japanese at all and they speak a language based in glyphs (Althrough it's implied in ''Rebellion'' to be ''English'', [[{{Wingdinglish}} with a different, alien typography]]). On the other side, Tomoe and Shizuka speaks Ancient Japanese, but it's never explained how they managed to understand the language of the rest of the cast, since both girls never traveled outside their country in their lives. In a very funny twist, they tried to learn the language using a very old scroll with ''Russian'' greetings instead.

* RevisedEnding: The DVD version of the first season fixed a potential PlotHole regarding Melona in the final episode: [[spoiler:In the original TV broadcast, she transforms into the Demon Snake, and she was destroyed along her by Leina, possibly for giving the series a proper ending in the case the series couldn't be given a second season. Since the series received a second season, not to mention her potential death could violate the ContractualImmortality clause used in the franchise regarding named characters, the DVD version retcon this and Melona just summons the Demon Snake, while Melona becomes her shield, and while the the demon was destroyed, she managed to escape on time]].

* RedRightHand: Regardless of the form she's in, Melona's pupils are always plus signs. This is mostly removed in ''Rebellion'', as by that point she has absorbed enough power from devouring a demon so as to be able to hide this flaw, though there is [[spoiler:[[http://i.imgur.com/10ePz8N.jpg one scene]]]] before TheReveal that foreshadows her identity by barely showing it in her right eye.

** Taken to ridiculous levels in ''Rebellion'' (at least in the TV series, since the regular countinuity the technological level didn't change a lot) since we can see Ymir using a magic-powered ''car'', and Vingt, who is a wind-up powered ''robot'' elf with machine guns and being able to ''fly''.
