* RuleOfSymbolism: Omnipresent in the show, but especially in the flashbacks and the Tale of the Rose. This trope goes UpToEleven in the movie.

* RuleOfSymbolism: Omnipresent in the show, show (a passing gag about a ''multi-layered bento box'' even symbolizes the series' deeper themes!), but especially in the flashbacks and the Tale of the Rose. This trope goes UpToEleven in the movie.

** [[spoiler: Akio ([[UsedToBeASweetKid yes, Akio]]) ''used'' to be this through and through, as Prince Dios, but when he couldn't hack it anymore, [[FallenHero he became]] the BigBad, who ''still'' used the image of a PrinceCharming to manipulate those around him. (i.e, seducing women ''and'' men for his own purposes, posing as Dios to comfort little!Utena [[ParentalAbandonment when at her lowest point]])]]. [[spoiler: Utena tried to invoke the trope and protect Anthy, and it turned out she wasn't doing it for Anthy's sake, but more to [[WhiteKnighting feel good about herself]], and [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone she REALLY regrets]] having done such a thing in the end.]]

** Utena is associated heavily with pink. Her hair is pink, she occasionally wears pink dresses, she's associated with pink roses etc. Pink is one of the few concessions to femininity in an otherwise Tomboyish character (and is one that she can't control). It seems to represent her naive and trusting nature as pink becomes more on display when Touga and [[spoiler: Akio]] are manipulating her.

** DamselOutOfDistress: [[spoiler: In the end, the one to end the Duels and save Anthy is...Anthy herself. She decides to leave Otohori and walks out. Utena provided the impetus and the resolve.]]

* PinkMeansFeminine: Like everything else, examined, deconstructed and played with.
** Utena is associated heavily with pink. Her hair is pink, she occasionally wears pink dresses, she's associated with pink roses etc. Pink is one of the few concessions to femininity in an otherwise Tomboyish character (and is one that she can't control). It seems to represent her naive and trusting nature as pink becomes more on display when Touga and [[spoiler: Akio]] are manipulating her.
** Anthy is usually associated with red but her [[spoiler: travel suit is pink]].
* PoorCommunicationKills: Most of everyone's problems could be solved if they would just sit down and talk. Shiori and Juri get this the most but it applies to everyone.



* RedOniBlueOni: There are multiple contrasting pairs
** Utena and Anthy. Utena's a HotBlooded Tomboy who wants to be a prince while Anthy is an ExtremeDoormat DamselInDistress. It's reflected in their hair colors - Utena has pink hair while Anthy has blue hair.
** Touga and Saionji. Touga is a cool ManipulativeBastard while Saionji is HotBlooded with a HairTriggerTemper
** Miki and Kozue. Miki's reserved and introverted while Kozue's much more outgoing and expressive.
** All of this is examined and played for drama. A lot of tension is because the Red and Blue Onis have different communication styles and end up talking past each other. It contributes to a lot of unnecessarily destructive and self-defeating behaviors.

* ArtisticAge: Type 1. It's easy to forget that Utena, Wakaba, and Nanami are 14 years old, looking about the same age as their 16-18 year old upperclassmen. [[spoiler: Makes for added Squick during Akio's seduction of Utena]]
