* AdaptationalVillainy: In the movie [[spoiler: Folken is a psychotic BigBad, while in the original series he was more of an Anti-Villain or a Dragon with an Agenda to the actual Big Bad, Emperor Dornkirk (who is absent from the movie altogether). In fact, in the series he eventually has a HeelFaceTurn]].

A brainchild of Creator/ShojiKawamori, ''Tenkuu no Escaflowne'' (lit. "Escaflowne of the Heavens") was conceived during a trip to Nepal and [[HighConcept pitched]] as ''Air Cavalry Chronicles'', basically "''[[Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross Macross]]'' with divination instead of love songs". Planned as a 39-episode anime series from the start, it spent several years in DevelopmentHell, during which a manga was published (based on pre-production materials and thus markedly different from the final product). The series was finally broadcast in Japan from April 2, 1996 to September 24, 1996, cut to just 26 episodes, which accounts for a rather abrupt wrap-up in the end. Two more mangas and a novelization were produced later, and the anime was licensed as ''The Vision of Escaflowne'' in the US. There was also [[TheMovie a movie]] released in 2000, which greatly simplified the series' mythology and played up its mystical aspects.

** Although they were unused in the anime, one of Doinkirk's visions shows that the giant green gems in Escaflowne's shoulders are not just for show - they can shoot beams that can shoot down a flying fortress.

* Chocolate Baby: A very rare inversion of the usual trope is used here. [[spoiler:While it is thought that Prince Chid is the son of the Duke of Fried and Millerna's sister Marlene, it is very obvious both in-universe and out that the Anglo-Saxon-looking Chid looks absolutely ''nothing'' like the duke, who has olive skin and Middle Eastern features. Naturally, Chid isn't his son; he's Allen and Marlene's love child. Unusually, the duke ''knows'' all of this, and keeps on vocally insisting that Chid is his, likely out of love. Meanwhile, Marlene still thinks he's unaware and Allen is, and remains, completely in the dark about his existence.]]

* TookALevelInBadass: Poor Van ''has'' to take every level in {{Badass}} he can if he wants to stop TheEmpire and [[SavingTheWorld save the world]] and slowly becomes an all-out BloodKnight who revels in battles. Needless to say, Hitomi is horrified.

** [[spoiler: MaybeEverAfter: Suggested in the very last moments of the TV series. Presuming that Hitomi isn't just hallucinating/imagining seeing Van, the scene suggests that communication between Gaea and Earth is still possible (and, if so, travel may be as well). Whether this is the case lays beyond the purview of official works, though.]]

* GoThroughMe: Merle does this for Van in episode 15. Notable in the fact that she's ''facing two Guymelefs with only her bare body''.
