** 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''.

*{{Synchronization}}: Van eventually establishes a connection with Escaflowne that makes him all but unstoppable in combat. Downside; [[spoiler:After that point, any damage the mech takes is not only inflicted on his body, but ''[[WoundThatWillNotHeal will not heal]]'' until it is repaired! This is compounded by Escaflowne being LostTechnology that can ''only'' be repaired - at incredible cost - by a race of [[HiddenElfVillage reclusive]] nomads]].

* ProphecyTwist: [[spoiler:Knowing that fortunes on Gaea are [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve influenced by human belief and will]], Hitomi switches out the Tower card (Separation) for the Emperor (Good Fortune) in the Tarot reading of Millerna's impending marriage to Dryden. Turns out that luck was for the ''bad guys'', who crash the wedding and -- thanks to literally supernatural good fortune -- destroy over half of Palas and defeat the Escaflowne with two only two mechs]]. Cue Hitomi's cry of MyGodWhatHaveIDone.
