** [[spoiler: [[AffablyEvil Yoshii's]] discussion with [[BrokenBird Tatsuya]] of the "humans' primitive energy" seems pretty evocative of [[FriedrichNietzsche Nietzsche's]] Will to Power, and his MotiveRant to Shinji implies that he is possibly trying to create an [[TheUbermensch Ubermensch]] [[WellIntentionedExtremist to save Lux.]]]]

* HiddenVillain: It takes a while before [[spoiler: Yoshii]] is revealed as the BigBad of the first story arc. Especially since [[TheYakuza Onishi]], [[GangBangers Shinji]] and [[ChurchMilitant Kimata]] all seem candidates as well. [[spoiler: Kano,]] likewise, keeps to the shadows throughout much of the second arc, largely working through his [[UnwittingPawn proxies]] [[TheQuisling in]] [[CrapsackWorld Lux.]]

Added DiffLines:

* CrystalSpiresAndTogas: The Class have this sort of aesthetic, but it's subverted in that they're all completely corrupt, complacent, and decadent.

* ApocalypseAnarchy: [[spoiler: Once the Obelisk powering all texhnolyzed limbs is destroyed and the lights above the city go out, everyone left in Lux essentially goes insane and the city descends into an orgy of random violence]].



* BeautifulVoid: The surface world, in a NothingIsScarier sort of way.



* BrokenRecord: The surface world has many radios which do nothing but repeat the same phrase ad nauseam.



* CoolOldGuy: The Chief of Gabe, though it's also subverted in that his adherence to the village's YouCantFightFate philosophy causes him to actively hinder the efforts of the protagonists. Played straight with Great Father Goto, founder of the Organo, who is one of the few people in the organization to treat Ichise with any sort of respect.



* CurbstompCushion: The Shapes pretty much bulldoze through Lux when they arrive, but they're shown taking casualties and losing individual skirmishes.



* DefectorFromDecadence: {{Inverted}} and played straight during the second half. [[spoiler: Inverted in that Hal and a collection of Racan, along with Kimata's {{Dragon}} and his entourage of Union troops defect to the Class, Kano, and the Shapes side. Played straight for Onishi and his men, who ends up deciding ScrewThisImOuttaHere when Kowakura pulls a coup and convinces the rest to of the Organo to join up with Kano]].

* DeliberatelyMonochrome: The first ten minutes of the final episode are done in the style of a silent film reel.



* HollywoodTactics: [[spoiler:In Lux's final battle against the Shapes, they initially have a wall of metal shields to protect themselves--the first substance shown to actually stop the Shapes' death rays. But the Luxites ''leave the shields behind'' when they go on the offensive.]]

* LudicrousGibs: [[spoiler: Onishi is shot by a crowd of deranged Luxites until he is ''literally'' a stain on the wall. All that's left of him are his texhnolyzed legs, still standing upright]].
