* BerserkerTears: Mikkako weeps like the [[{{Angst}} anguished schoolgirl she is]] during much of the FinalBattle. [[spoiler:Until she [[TranquilFury stops crying]], that is.]] That doesn't stop her from being frighteningly effective.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: What happens when Mikkako gets over her {{Angst}} with [[spoiler:victory in battle as her only option to see Noboru again. See CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass below for details]].

* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: An interestingly downplayed variant, as Mikkako is actually [[ActionGirl badass enough]] from the beginning. Then, her anguish because of her separataion from Noboru slowly turns her into an [[HeroicBSOD emotional wreck]] that makes her even fail to react to threats, almost revoking her Badass status. And then, she [[spoiler:realizes she ''loves'' Noboru, and her only option to ever [[GoalInLife reunite with him]] is to protect the [[CurbStompBattle only remaining ship]] of the fleet. Cue [[BewareTheNiceOnes Mikkako]] personally [[TranquilFury taking point]] in the last ditch counterattack and [[LaserBlade slicing in half]] the largest Tarsian ship]]. Would count as a simple LetsGetDangerous moment, if not for the notorious change in behaviour (from [[BerserkerTears emotional wreck]] to HeroicSafeMode).
* DarkestHour: For both characters, it is not the FinalBattle, but how dangerously close they are to reach their DespairEventHorizon over their separation.
* [[spoiler:{{Determinator}}]]: Zigzagged to Agartha and back. Mikako (and, to a leeser degree, Noboru) spends most of the [=OVA=] averting the trope really hard (see {{Angst}} and HeroicBSOD entries for details). Played ''very'' straight in the FinalBattle, as she realizes that [[spoiler:she truly loves Noboru and wants to return with him someday]] and [[BewareTheNiceOnes acts]] [[TranquilFury accordingly]]. [[spoiler:Also, again to a lesser degree, for Noboru once he realizes the same and joins the Navy to [[AllThereInTheManual be part of the rescue fleet]].]]



* HeroicBSOD: Mikako falls into one at the higgest of her {{Angst}}, briefly turning into a weeping emotional wreck inside her mecha.



* HeroicSafeMode: Implied to Mikkako in the FinalBattle end. She starts it almost in HeroicBSOD over her separation from Noboru, snaps [[TranquilFury out of it]], [[spoiler:wins the battle]], and returns to thinking about Noboru as soon as the battle ends.



* TranquilFury: Mikkako in the last half of the FinalBattle, once she realizes that [[spoiler:victory is the only option to see Noboru again]].

* UmbrellaOfTogetherness: Played straight by Mikkako and Noboru in their flashbacks. {{Defied}} by Noboru when he (politely but tearfully) rejects another girl attempt to [[InvokedTrope Invoke]] the trope, as he's still in love with Mikkako. He leaves her the umbrella and runs under the rain.
