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.

* Hypocrite: Zaizen, he wants to eliminate witches, how doesn't he plan to do that?, [[spoiler: By using a substance his organization makes from the witches' painfully drained body fluids]], When Robin calls him out on this, his breakdown gets even worse.

** Chief Inspector Shintarō Kosaka is the STNJ's boss and [[spoiler:replaces Zaizen at the end.]] Though there's probably a [[BiggerBad Bigger Good]] in SOLOMON.

* TheEmpath: Miho Karasuma, though she uses psychometry, is notable because her power ''is'' useful when used.

* ButNotTooForeign: Almost off the bat, we find out that Robin is half Japanese [[spoiler: from her dad]]. It's only near the end of the series that we learn that her other half is [[spoiler: Italian from her mom. It's also from her mom that she has witch powers and Robin's maternal grandfather is actually Father Juliano]]

* BattleCouple: Amon and Robin. Usually a [[SwordAndSorcerer Gun and Craft-user]] duo, but they give off a LadyAndKnight vibe in [[spoiler:"Loaded Guns"]].

* LadyAndKnight: Amon and Robin play with the trope. Robin looks like a victorian lady in her usual dress and is seen as the Dark Lady by many because of her heritage and some of her actions are brutal considering what the rest of the team does, but at heart she's a Bright Lady trying to do what's right. Amon ultimately betrays both [[spoiler: Zaizen and SOLOMON]] to protect Robin from danger and is seen as a Dark Knight who's gone rogue, though he wavers back and forth. Robin herself calls him her "watch dog" because he will make sure she survives unless she loses herself to her power. [[MercyKill At which point he will kill her himself.]]
* LiquidAssets: Applied thoughtfully in the episode "Faith."
