** It's a little more complicated then that: in cannon source material the allied command does uphold a blanket prohibition from fraternization between conventional military personnel and the witches beyond anything that is purely professional in nature to ensure that witches aren't taken advantage of but to also discourage the possibility of unbecoming behavior and to some degree soften the impact of loosing non-which comrades, though it seems that the extent in which this is enforced may vary from nation to nation or even from unit to unit. Minna herself when questioned by Mio about her actions being as heavy handed as they were responded matter of factually "Those are the rules" hinting that Minna is merely enforcing military protocol as a wing commander. That said it's likely given her backstory [[spoiler: and the loss of Kurt]] it could be argued she could be enforcing the anti-fraternization protocol much more strictly then most, but not out of "bitterness" or "self-righteousness".... more likely it's motivated by a combination of professionalism in her duties as an officer being influenced and enforcing military protocol more heavily by personal anguish and trying to go about preserving the well being of her subordinates; given that she is still a Commander who cares for the well being of her girls so her actions typically are motivated to that end in mind. It should be noted that Eila and Sanya hold feelings for each other: yet Minna doesn't appear to show and express any objection.



** Debatable if this trope actually applies: [[spoiler: given that Minna appears to draw her gun in a bit to try and get through to Mio who is well known for being either dense, stubborn or both; it was likely the only way Minna could get Mio to both take her seriously as well as understand explicitly. In most cases a Yandere actually wants to harm their love interest to prevent them being stolen from competition (wither real or imagined). In this case Minna doesn't actually want to shoot Mio and is doing so to convince Mio to stop fighting in the war due to her diminishing magical viability, which are actual, legitimate concerns, if exercised and expressed in an extream way]].

**ZigZagged: More accurately: for most heavy and capital class neuroi, while damage can be done easier with a witches magically enhanced weapons; a Neruoi's regeneration, and at times shell durability, can render any damage repaired and thus moot at best unless the Core is destroyed. With smaller Neruoi units and drones; witches can destroy them with impressive ease, although exceptions are known to exist in either direction.



**This starts getting downplayed by the last few episodes of Season 1. In season 2 she has become much better and by the Movie and 3rd OVA she has become better a person and less insufferable, though still retaining something of a prim and proper attitude, though only seems to get mad when pressed into stressful situations.



**In fairness, [[spoiler: after Mio's brush with death]] in the later episodes of Season 1 and having a firm but fair heart to heart with her, Perrine starts to quickly grow out of this phase for the last episodes of Season 1 and is completely past it by Season 2.

**By Season 2 however, this trope has become strongly {{Averted}}, though her romantic feelings for Mio still hold firm
