* TheEmpath: Miho Karasuma, though she uses {{psychometry}}, is notable because her power ''is'' useful when used.
* EquivalentExchange: The power of a witch who can save one life by taking another. Notable for being the first witch that's ALighterShadeOfGrey and thus bringing a more complicated morality than what had existed earlier.

* ImprobableHairstyle: Subverted, Robin's hairstyle seems improbable at first glance, but it's shown to be held in place by a number of hairpins and hair ties. The rest of the cast generally has realistic normal hair.

* PersonalityPowers: Noteworthy in its aversion. Since powers are tied to genetics and spiritualism, the writers had every excuse. However, [[ShrinkingViolet Robin]] is shy and demure, in contrast to the typical personality that one would expect from someone with [[PlayingWithFire her powers]]. Karasuma, by contrast, probably would've been an insightful person even without PsychicPowers.

** Subversion-The Inquisitor is more of an official than a minister and less "sinister" than playing the "bad cop"
** Defiance. Father Juliano, Robin's guardian [[spoiler: and grandfather]] tried to be this trope but raising Robin mellowed him out. Instead of condemning her, he blesses her.

The main theme of '''''Witch Hunter Robin''''' involves the moral responsibility of a witch's powers -- and how many witches [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity become consumed by their own power]]. Other themes include isolation and persecution, as witches have a hard time assimilating and living among humans while controlling their dark urges. The second half of the show reveals that even innocent witches live in fear of being killed or disappeared by SOLOMON if their powers are discovered, and Robin herself battles with the fear she will one day become drunk on her power and become a target.
