* AcePilot: Eika. She soundly defeated TWO [[CoolPlane Vic Vipers]] using an old model aircraft. The reason? "You two relied on it too much and let your skills down." Keep in mind that the people she fought weren't random strangers, but members of a friendly rival squad. ''Elite'' rival squad.

For a show with a similar concept that began with an OVA and was later turned into an anime, see ''Anime/StrikeWitches''. Both shows share the same character designer, Humikane Shimada, which may further explain their similarities. See the entry below on CharacterDevelopment.

* PettingZooPeople: Strangely enough, the Motion Slits include hair decorations that vaguely resemble animal ears and has a cable extension connecting their spine to the Sonic Divers resembling tails. This become even more pronounced at the second generation Rescue Sky Girls, whose hair decs are even more varying. Seems Fumikane decided to cut the middleman and made everyone in StrikeWitches magically sprout animal ears and tails without any other explanation other than [[AWizardDidIt their magic powers did it...]]

In the latter half of the 21st century earth is threatened by creatures called WORMS, which are huge artificial life forms resembling the first thing they see--usually sea organisms. After a devastating war they seem to have been defeated, only to suddenly appear again.

* SpoilerOpening: The opening spoils the appearance of Elise quite a while before she even shows up and only several episodes after that she actually joins the cast proper; and it basicly spoils the entire rest of the cast too. It also shows a girl whose face is obscured by a helmet; it's actually Aisha who joins very late and otherwise only showed up once to fight against Eika in a test battle.

** Incidentally, the in-universe documents refer to it as "Powered Exoskeleton". Talk about classification hell.

* SuperPrototype: Subverted: Although Reijin, Fuujin, and Raijin are prototypes, the mass-produced Bachstelze performs just as well. The catch? [[spoiler: The production plant got bombed to kingdom come just after one model is built]]

* TechnoBabble: Quite numerous, but legible. This is the reason why the girls have to go around in a latex swimsuit with a 20 minute time limit in every battle.
** Speaking of swimsuits, even Karen notes how Motion Slits are even thinner than swimsuits.
