* TomboyWithAGirlyStreak: PlayedForDrama in Utena's case. Episode 12 straight up shows that a tomboy Utena is a happy Utena and when she's getting girly, something's wrong with her. [[spoiler:The ''only'' time she wore the female uniform was after losing Anthy to Touga and she believed she losed her right to be a prince. Later on she starts to slip from her male uniform to more girly clothes after being seduced by Akio who almost got her to slip out of being a prince to turn her into a princess.]]

* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler: Downplayed. Even if Akio got to keep his place in Ohtori and Utena was gone, Utena herself had the last laugh as she finally managed to free Anthy from his control, so Anthy ultimately says "ButNowIMustGo" and goes WalkingTheEarth with Chuchu despite his pleas. Keep in mind that it's implied Akio has no magic of his own, so with Anthy gone he's completely powerless, and this is ''one of the worst things that could ever happen to him''.]]

And you know how by staying at Ohtori, Mikage continues to exist by living in a fantasy world built around an idealized and romanticized version of his younger years? ''Yeah.''

* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Poor girl is madly in love with a guy who is openly abusive to women.

to:

* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Poor girl is madly in love with a guy who is openly abusive to women. Due to missing the {{Aesop}} of her storyline in the Black Rose arc, it's implied that [[FridgeHorror she will continue with similar romantic obsessions in the future]].



* {{Leitmotif}}: Cruelly subverted. During her Black Rose CharacterFilibuster episode, a variation on the theme music associated with the main characters plays, but strained and in a lower key, implying that even though she is doing better than usual, she is still [[TheBeautifulElite not up to par with the more "meaningful" characters she admires]].




to:

* YouBastard: During the Black Rose arc, her character is meant as an indictment of bored, dissatisfied fans who wish they had adventures like those of anime and manga protagonists.

%%* * OurGhostsAreDifferent: [[spoiler:''Maybe''.[[spoiler:''Maybe''. The end of the Black Rose arc suggests he was DeadAllAlong, but reality seems to get overwritten at that point. It's theorized that he might be a self-propagating mental projection, though you may as well just call that a ghost. More confusingly, his flashback scenes don't even match up with what we know about the timeline from elsewhere.]]
