* MeaningfulName: Enma is the Buddhist god who rules the underworld. Ai is that word for love, probably. It's deliberately always written in kana, so we can't be sure which meaning of ''ai'' her parents had in mind. There are hints that the "indigo" meaning is significant: the second season finale is called "Aizome" ("dyed in indigo"), as is the end theme, which MamikoNoto herself sings.

* AffablyEvil: Ai's teammates have a fairly even-minded opinion of human kind, and happily support their co-workers, students, and friends in their many, many jobs. It almost makes you forget what their real job is.

* UndyingLoyalty: For Wanyuudo, it saved him from running until burning into hell, for Hone Onna, it's because Ai helped them regain their humanity. In the case of Ichmoku Ren and Yamawaro, it's because she saved them from a lonely existence.

Added DiffLines:

* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: They made an innocent girl's life a living hell for no reason.
* AssholeVictim: They paid dearly for their horrible mistreatment of Ai.
* BuriedAlive: How they sacrificed Ai and her parents.
* CreateYourOwnVillain: As they buried Ai and her parents alive, her hate for them because of their cruelty toward her became so powerful that it allowed her to come back to life as a demon and slaughter them all.
* CruelAndUnusualDeath / KarmicDeath: Burned alive in their homes by the young girl they tormented without end and ultimately killed. Needless to say, they deserved every second of it. And the one-way express trip to hell they very likely got afterwards.
* HumanSacrifice: They held a tradition of killing children to appease a mountain god.
* InfantImmortality: Defied. Ai spared no one when she burned down the village.
* KidsAreCruel: And teenagers, and adults, and elders...
* KillEmAll: Their ultimate fate at the hands of Ai. Good riddance, too.
* ReligionOfEvil: Sacrificing their own children to a mountain god? One gets the impression that they weren't great people even before Ai was born.
* SelfFulfillingProphecy: They ostracized Ai because she was believed to have supernatural powers. Their final and most monstrous act of cruelty toward her--burying her alive along with her parents and forcing her beloved cousin to betray her--[[ThePowerOfHate made her hate of them so strong]] that she transformed into a demon, clawed her way out of the grave they dug for her, and burned the village down until it was nothing but ash, killing them all.
* TownWithADarkSecret: Just a peaceful Japanese farming village that sacrificed little girls to please their mountain god and indirectly created Hell Girl as we know her. Nothing to see here.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Although we see them die, their fates after death are unseen and it is unknown if they went to hell (although they probably did).
* WouldHurtAChild: The village had a policy of sacrificing young girls to their mountain god to ensure plentiful harvests. Ai was the last of them.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: Played with. They aren't happy when an innocent gets sent to Hell, but have no choice in the matter. Additionally, while their job is to send people to hell, they are contemptuous of deliberate human cruelty; for example, in episode 1, they're disgusted that the bully is writing off her behavior as "kid stuff", and for another example, in episode 16, they sound very angry when telling off Yuki for how she treated her sister Yumi.
** Played Straight in one instance where Ichimoku Ren attempts to prevent a child from sending her own mother due to a misunderstanding resulting from a previous covenant, only avoiding punishment due to the covenant being impossible to fulfill out of a technicality.

* KidsAreCruel: In season 2, she would sometimes go out of her way to make people who made contracts with Ai regret it while they were alive. Case in point: a man who stole money for his girlfriend's medical care banished the person blackmailing him over it, so she made the girlfriend forget him.
