* OlderThanTheyLook: Due to being in space for extended periods of time, Noriko doesn't physically age, such as when in episode 5 where ten years have passed since Noriko entered space, she still looks 17, despite chronologically being 27. In episode 6, another fifteen years have passed, making her chronologically 42, but still looks like she hasn't aged a day; the only difference being she has grown her hair out. Finally, at the conclusion of episode 6, [[spoiler: 12,000 years have passed]] since the implosion when Noriko and Kazumi finally made it back to Earth and ''still'' looks 17.

* UndyingLoyalty: Everyone in the series, at one moment or another, doubts Noriko's ability and usefulness to the war, including Noriko herself... except Coach Ohta. Coach NEVER fails to tell Noriko of how much potential he sees in her and that it's her destiny to pilot Gunbuster, even as he submits her through every TrainingFromHell imaginable to toughen her up in preparation to pilot it. In return, [[PreAssKickingOneLiner IT'S COACH'S BEATING HEART THAT MAKES GUNBUSTER NOT SOME ORDINARY MACHINE!!!]]

* DeconstructedCharacterArchtype : Noriko is an amazingly talented mecha pilot who can become the best pilot should she work hard enough...she's also only 17 when the show aires and suffers from near crippling self esteem issues and panics at the sight of danger, making her a deconstruction of the average mecha pilot at the time in a similar vein to [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Shinji Ikari]]. However, she also becomes a {{Reconstruction}} of said archtype by Episode 4 by becoming stronger through the tragedy that was inflicted upon her.
