* [[spoiler:BittersweetEnding]]: [[spoiler:Utena has disappeared and the entire campus will eventually forget about her. But the revolution ''did'' occur--Anthy is inspired to finally end her cycle of abuse, and go out into the world to find Utena again. And the rest of the Student Council seems to have, if not had their own revolution, at least resolved their issues.]]

Added DiffLines:

* RefugeInAudacity: You know how a lot of shojo anime romanticizes behaviors and traits that would be unacceptable in real life? Well, here those actions and character traits actually have consequences, because Utena subverts the ''hell'' out of this.

* DownerEnding: Most of the Black Rose episodes end with the Black Rose duelist happier off and with some CharacterDevelopment for their trouble; [[spoiler:Wakaba's]], on the other hand, [[spoiler:ends with her coming to see Saionji has left as she mutters an "I'm home" to herself.]] In short, it's implied she ''missed'' her {{Aesop}} - which is that being attracted to a person of [[BastardBoyfriend Saionji's character]] is ''really'' not a good thing.

* DeconstructorFleet: The point of the series, much like ''NeonGenesisEvangelion'', is to tear apart character tropes that are usually portrayed as either adventurous and romantic, as endearing quirks, or just PlayedForLaughs in most anime, but are actually ''really, really messed up'' by the standards of any ordinary human being.
