* RelatedByAdaptation: Inverted in this series, which was a major surprise compared to the originals. Washu is simply a mad scientist who was imprisoned on Earth for making doomsday devices and other bizarre inventions and isn't the mother of Ryoko who is "just" a space pirate, Ayeka and Sasami are no relation to Katsuhito, Tenchi is related to Katsuhito only through his mother's side of the family, and there's no word on whether or not Mihoshi is related to Washu (though that is doubtful).

* BlessedWithSuck: Kiyone considers her being partnered with Mihoshi as this. Of all the Galaxy Police officers to partner up with, she winds up with TheMillstone.



* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Mihoshi being the prime instigator as TheMillstone. One of the worst examples was when she accidentally blew everyone's cover when they were trying to get past an intergalactic checkpoint under heavy security.

* AdaptationalAttractiveness: This series incarnation of Kagato has a much more different character design, looking much younger, sporting dark hair, and eschewing the spectacles.
* AdaptationalVillainy: While not really a villain, and portrayed as a LoveableRogue at worst, Ryoko in this series was willfully a SpacePirate, unlike the OVA where she at least had the excuse of being BrainwashedAndCrazy.

to:

* WhereAreTheyNowEpilogueUnexplainedRecovery: [[spoiler:It's never touched on how Ryoko survived her apparently mortal injuries at the end of the series. She just appears in the last episode fully healed.]]
* WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue: Most of the last episode consists of Tenchi narrating the aftermath of his victory and showing what the supporting cast has been getting up to.

* JerkAss: Ayeka and Ryoko in some episodes.

to:

* JerkAss: Ayeka and Ryoko in some episodes. Ryoko especially in "No Need For Hunger" where she had been tasked with getting food when the ship ran out. Instead, she splurges the cash for her own enjoyment, never mind everyone else left behind are starving. Was it mentioned they were all '''on the run''' at the time?


Added DiffLines:

* RealityWarper: Washu invents a machine that can create an ideal world. Unfortunately, the other girls mess with it and each tried input their own ideal worlds, causing the whole cast to get sucked into a multitude of alternate realities until Washu reverts everything back to normal.

* BadassGrandpa: Katsuhito, as per usual. First thing he did was defeat a mech suit using only a bokuto.


Added DiffLines:

* ClearMyName: The last arc involved Aeka and Sasami labeled as "traitors to Jurai" by the newly crowned Yosho,([[spoiler: who is actually an impostor, Kagato]]). Ryoko is also targeted for "assisting" in a possible takeover. Tenchi, Washu, Mihoshi, Kiyone, Nobiyuki, and Katsuhito also get branded as criminals by association. They all spend the rest of the season traveling through space, dodging attempted capture, to get to Planet Jurai and uncover the truth.


Added DiffLines:

* LaserBlade: The Tenchi Sword makes its appearance late in the series.
