* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Carol looks approximately ten. She has Most of the franchise's antagonists have some form of immortality and have been nursing using it for a genocidal grudge over [[StartOfDarkness good while. Finé manages it by performing GrandTheftMe on any of her father's death]] ''for centuries''.descendants who get exposed to phonic gain, meaning she's been alive in various forms for thousands of years. Alchemy can also be used to acquire immortality, as seen with the antagonists of ''GX'' and ''AXZ''.



** ''AXZ'' averts it: while the Symphogears do demonstrate new techniques to increase their combat performance, the antagonists are depicted as much less powerful than Carol and the Autoscorers, while the heroines get no opportunity to use their traditional once-a-season SuperMode nor fight the gigantic army of Noise the form would normally be used against. The reduction in scope is justified by Carol's abuse of [[CastFromHitPoints memory combustion]] and other self-destructive techniques that the new alchemists forgo in favor of more sustainable powers, and [[SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum unlike Carol]] they want the world to still be in one piece when they're done with it.



** In season 2, Genjiro states that the USA can't be trusted. One wonders whether it's because the mess was kickstarted by the American relic lab, or due to the sheer extent of the US' surveillance state in RealLife.

** In season 2, Genjiro states that the USA can't be trusted. One wonders whether it's because the mess was kickstarted by the American relic lab, or due to the sheer extent of the US' surveillance state in RealLife. In season 4 the US President fires a nuclear missile at Japan out of paranoia, so that might also have something to do with it.
