-->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.

* KillItWithIce: Mercury does this very thoroughly when she faces [[spoiler:Zoicite. First she locks him inside a large razor-edged fractal ice sculpture, then while he's trying to get out, she drops a car-sized hailstone on his head.]]

*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. [[spoiler: Hotaru's magical ability is so great that she can ignore this supposed impossibility and drastically shorten Nanoha's recovery time. Shamal then learns that Hotaru has Triple S potential as a mage.]]



* [[spoiler: IChooseToStay: Ami, in a roundabout way. Of the four senshi she alone chooses to go to Mid-Childa to study magic, though by all hints her role would be more like Yuuno's than Nanoha's.]]

* 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.
** [[FridgeBrilliance Because Beryl's goal is two-fold: get Endemyion for her own and annihilate Serenity. Thus, she subconsciously foils her own plans because she has no idea who Serenity is and doesn't want her goal to be half-done.]]

reason for this is that [[FridgeBrilliance Because Beryl's goal is two-fold: get Endemyion for her own and annihilate Serenity. Thus, she subconsciously foils her own plans because she has no idea who Serenity is and doesn't want her goal to be half-done.]]



*** For what it's worth, many reviewers have noted that Nanoha wouldn't be quite as good a match for him as Usagi is, but take that as you well.

** Luna takes one look at Fate's barrier jacket -- black color scheme, metal gauntlets, ominous-looking cape, etc etc -- and immediately decides that Fate is evil. This would be ([[JustifiedTrope True]] in ''Anime/SailorMoon'' but it's [[DarkIsNotEvil False]] in LyricalNanoha.

** Applies some of this to Princess Serenity's actions: ditching bodyguards put her life in danger, leaving the country for the better weather could cause an international incident, and the PrinceCharming on Earth might not have been so charming underneath. In short, there were many possible RealLife consequences to Princess Serenity's romantic encounter with Endymion. Nanoha points out that while the dangers from these actions never materialized, said actions were incredibly irresponsible and reflected very poorly on her sense of responsibility, which was especially important given the role Serenity was inheriting.
** The senshi's plan of being all reincarnated and fighting the forces of evil is all well and good unless one of them moves, thus removing a fairly vital piece of the defensive plan of the planet. Nanoha's absence lead to a year-and-a-half long stalemate in the war against the Dark Kingdom, and since the Senshi had no plans on what to do if the princess was never found, the Dark Kingdom looks like it might have won by simple attrition.

** Nanoha tears the "I was too busy to keep an eye on her" excuse that Serenity uses to shreds, pointing out that ''her'' parents were bakers, and even though they were absent for large portions of her childhood due to medical reasons, they ''still'' managed to instill a strong sense of right and wrong, not to mention basic manners, decency, and a strong will.



* DrivenToSuicide: Like in canon, Princess Serenity kills herself after Prince Endymion is killed. Unlike canon, when Nanoha finds out, she's piping mad because her selfish actions might have cost many other lives.

Unfortunately, Princess Serenity chose to kill herself after seeing all her friends and loved ones perish, rendering those sacrifices meaningless and forcing the Queen to cast the resurrection spell.]]



* NiceJobFixingItVillain: If Beryl hadn't decided to attack the Moon Princess, the TSAB would have remained ignorant of the problem and Nanoha would have simply gone to the wedding and left again afterwards.

* ConservationOfNinjitsu: Miyuki's fight versus the youma in Beryl's throne room definitely qualifies; one human vs double digit youma. The narration explains by way of DeadlyDodging; because there were so many of them, they were more likely to hit each other than Miyuki. Double points as the Takamachi family also happens to be the last remnant of the Fuwa ninja clan.
