* EvenEvilHasStandards: When Pepel saw Plamya holding Asuta by his collar, when she met him the first time (during an operation to find Venera, who ran off), he wasn't happy about what looked like her harming an innocent. She was offended by his accusation and greeted him with the Zvezda salute (probably to affirm, that harming civilians is against Zvezda's policy).

* SplitPersonality: ''Itsuka'', which surprised many watchers, as there was ''no'' sign she ever had one, until its reveal in the final episode.
** Completely false: Episode 7 sees her in her high school presenting two fronts: her sweet side to her female admirers that stays on her open eye, and her war face to the boys that displays her eyepatch in blatant if short {{Foreshadowing}}. Later that same episode, White Falcon cuts her eyepatch, a split second of her completely fine eye is shown, but Itsuki still frantically moves to keep it covered, another strong hint that ''something'' is up.
** HelplessGoodSide: What Itsuka's ActionGirl persona ''actually'' covers for: a weak-willed crybaby, who clings helplessly to ''Kate'' and calls her onee-chan.
** SuperpoweredAlterEgo: Itsuka's public face and the ActionGirl persona that watchers had gotten used to since the start of the show, which she adopted in the wake of her mother Tsubaki's death, and joining Zvezda.

* EyepatchOfPower: Itsuka wears one. The final episode reveals that it's mostly aesthetic, but it ''also'' has a practical purpose: it keeps Itsuka's weak and crybaby side in check.

** Asuta's surprise that Kate could not only drive a motorbike, as well as the fact that she has a license with no expiration date, is to the first episode, concerning her inability to ride a bicycle.
** Drinking milk to help protect from fumes caused by smoke is one to episode 3.
** Asuta's flyswatter from episode 9 sees some ''actual'' practical use.
** Kate's practicing reverse back-flipping on the horizontal bar pays off dividends, when she uses the momentum she gains from the multiple flips to knock the Tokyo Governor's giant robot flat on its arse.
