** [[spoiler: There's also the implication that Homura '''murders''' her and Kirika in every timeline following ''Oriko Magica''. Of course, after Madoka's wish [[{{Retgone}} erases both witches and herself from time]], there's no reason for them to get involved.]]

* {{Expy}} - Very likely to be a reference to a certain other [[SenseiChan young female teacher]] [[spoiler:who [[MuvLuv suffers a gruesome death in *two* alternate universes.]] ]] Considering that [[spoiler: Mami's death scene]] is also a possible reference to the same franchise - and [[spoiler: the manner of that other teacher's death]] - it's not too much of a stretch to see this parallel.

** Kirika will '''not''' tolerate any disrespect towards Oriko. In ''Symmetry Diamond,'' Sasa Yuuki refers to Oriko as "trash" for her apparent lack of offensive powers. Although Kirika had mostly kept a cool head throughout their battle, this insult towards Oriko ''infuriates'' her. And if you actually try to harm Oriko? Watch out.

* FallenPrincess: [[spoiler:Her backstory. Her father was a corrupt congressman who committed suicide, and everyone shunned and abandoned her afterwards.

* MysticalWhiteHair: The volume 2 cover has her as silvery blonde, but that's close enough.



* PowerLimiter: Thanks to the above, Oriko seems to struggle in combat and risks running out of magic often. However, if she has a good supply of Grief Seeds, she's shockingly powerful.
