* {{Foil}}:Princess Serenity and Nanoha are two sides of the same coin. The former neglected her royal duties for romance and because of this is unprepared to deal with a crisis or the day-to-day business of ruling. The later took her responsibilities so seriously she almost killed herself with exhaustion and neglected her relationships so much she had no idea her brother was getting married.

* {{Flanderization}}: Luna's character has been stripped down to her loyalty to the Moon Kingdom. See the entry for DiscoDan; that's more or less ''her entire purpose'' in the story.

--> In Sailor Moon, it is implied that because the Earth Prince and Moon Princess were lovers in their previous lives, they are destined to be lovers again in their current ones. I don't find that plausible. I find the interpretation presented in the Deverry novels by Katherine Kerr to be more likely. In those stories, two people with a strong connection to each other (positive or negative) in one life will be inclined to similar feelings if they meet in another life, but they aren't bound to it. Reincarnated lovers will be inclined to like each other when they meet, making it easier for them to become lovers again, and reincarnated enemies will be inclined to dislike each other, making it easier for them to find a new reason to fight in the current life, but these are not set in stone. Reincarnated enemies can resolve their differences. Reincarnated lovers can end up parting ways. One's previous lives might influence the person they become, but it doesn't define them absolutely. Nanoha is not Princess Serenity. Mamoru is not Prince Endymion.

** If Beryl wasn't so determined to kill Nanoha, it's ''highly'' likely that Nanoha and Fate would still be suspicious of the Sailor Senshi.

* UndyingLoyalty: Lots of Nanoha's friends have this for here but special mention goes to Vita. Fate theorizes two possible outcomes for when the TSAB hears about the situation on Earth: 1.) Hayate is granted premission to take her knights to Earth and 2.) Hayate is not granted premission and Vita takes time off for a vacation on Earth.

-->Ice wasn't a very visually impressive weapon. It didn't have the obviously destructive power of [[KillItWithFire]] or [[ShockAndAwe lightning]]. But that didn't make it harmless. Regular patterns of freezing and thawing could eventually tear apart even the finest construction. A broken piece of ice could cut like a knife. And the destruction caused by a hailstorm could be just as devastating as a wildfire in its own way, damaging buildings and vehicles, ruining crops in some cases even knocking down trees. If the stones were large enough or coming down heavily enough, they could even kill.

*BeyondTheImpossible: Conventional wisdom states that linker cores can't be healed by magic. Once someone has strained or damaged theirs then all they can do to heal it is stop using magic for an extended period of time.

Shamal then learns that Hotaru has Triple S potential as a mage.]]

* PlotHole: In canon Sailor Moon it took a year at the very most (assuming anime canon, in the manga it took much less than that) for Beryl to accumulate enough power to awaken Metallia even when Sailor Moon was foiling her plans left and right. The author never stops to explain why, without Sailor Moon around, Metallia wasn't awakened before the story even started.
