* BarbieDollAnatomy: Her Berserker and Imaginos bodies lack attributes, although her TUNED body did have nipples. However, it's somewhat a subversion, due the fact that her nipples per se, while they appear, they don't have an areola. Either that, or they're really pale.

* BloodKnight: Gradually transforms into one over the course of ''Battle Angel Alita'', but showed traces of this from the very beginning. During her time as a TUNED agent, Alita outright tells Figure that battle is all she has left to live for while sporting a SlasherSmile, though he quickly snaps her out of it with a WhatTheHellHero speech. Even after finding a reason for living other than fighting, she ''still'' enjoys a good fight and furiously lashes out if interrupted.

* MesACrowd: Nova developed specialized airborne "stereotomy" nanomachines that, should he be incapacitated or killed, would create a clone of himself, complete with two brain chips and a face in his abdomen. He then modified those nanomachines to create a second decoy clone so that the primary clone could fully mature. This results in several copies of him existing: the original Nova, who was seemingly killed by Alita several times and fully killed by Jim Roscoe, Nova II, who was killed by Mbadi; Nova Pod, who was created with one of the original Nova's brain chips and a display screen; Super Nova, who was given Nova II's brain chips; and Nova X, who was cloned using stereotomy nanobots.

When he got the Berserker body, he could have had his face back, but he didn't remember how his own face looked like.

* CharacterDevelopment: At the beginning of the original series, Alita was young and naive, but possessed an almost instinctual desire to fight that led to her becoming a Hunter-Warrior. Her personal losses robbed her of her naivety, and following her enslavement as a TUNED Agent she becomes a spiteful BloodKnight revelling in combat in order to blot out her despair over the loss of her freedom. She regained her determination to live after falling in love with Figure Four and befriending Kaos and Lou, but suffered a series of existential crises during the ZOTT. By the end of ''Last Order'' and the beginning of ''Mars Chronicle'', Alita has matured considerably both as a warrior and a person, as shown by her interactions with Elf and Zwölf - who resemble her early, naïve persona - and Sechs - who resembles her TUNED BloodKnight persona.
