* DubText: Hunter and Aqune's promises to each other. Most indicate that Hunter had romantic interest in her. The same could probably go for Buguese calling her "my beautiful" and "my sweet." Considering that the dub even went as far as to remove some of the Hunter/Corona moments, perhaps they just wanted to hook Aqune up with someone. Heck, the dub even hints at Aqune being interested in Quake/Brade.

* SaveBothWorlds: Averted. The BigBad ''says'' that he intends on conquering the Outer World, but he's defeated before he can even get there. Considering that this is an anime that involves a boy from earth getting [[TrappedInAnotherWorld sucked into a subterranean world beneath our own]], the fact that we didn't even see some [[EverythingIsOnline strange phenomenon]] going on in the outer world is rather unique.

Lumen also hits on Sparkle in the Japanese version, and has declared his true love for Beerain.

The novels include much more sinister and less sympathetic Insectors (they eat humans, for one), as well as some more depressing themes like Spider Riders ultimately aging out of their powers and losing the ability to speak with their spider partners.
