* BewareTheSillyOnes: Minions are short, dimwitted, and easily-distracted goblinoids prone to fighting (and killing) each other for loot...but they are ''not'' to be underestimated. During the raid on [[spoiler:the Bloody Duke's tomb]], the Greens take little time to brutally dispatch quite a few of the [[spoiler:vampires]] who were watching the fight from a distance.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: Though in this case, the ''standards'' apparently consist of not selling all your evil artifacts simply to have the funds to to buy expensive clothes.
** Izah'belya is honestly shocked that a six year old is summoning demons like her.

* LesbianVampire: [[spoiler:Cattleya.]] During her return to the family estate, Louise found Cattelya literally face-first in her maid's crotch (granted, Cattelya was having to be sneaky about drinking blood). Cattleya also makes a point of saving young women just to hire them to be new maids]].

* RantInducingSlight: Louise manages to remain fairly stoic when hearing all that's happened during her time in the tower, but learning that Wardes is already sleeping with another woman launches her into a rant that manages to impress Scarron.

Wardes remains a sore spot for her, and she goes into further rants later on.
* RightForTheWrongReasons: Ol' Phil, uneducated horse herder who's occasionally quoted in the Epitaphs. He's a crazy old man with an OopNorth accent who has an Elven conspiracy theory for everything. The snag is that he's actually right about what he talks about; as an example, he thinks Elves meet with evil creatures every year to plot and eat cheese on sticks, and they planned to blow up his herd with a ray from space. The forces of Evil ''do'' have secret meetings every year where they plot and eat expensive food, but the only Elves not killed immediately are the Dark kind, and they weren't involved in blowing Phil's herd up.



* StealthInsult: Eleanore gives a long speech about how Madame de Montespan's expertise is wards and she has spent long hours on her hands and knees working on wards.[[note]]Madame de Montespan is Wardes new fiance after Louise was declared dead[[/note]] She further adds that no one has any doubt about her virtue, fidelity (to the church), and suitability for marriage.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Comprehensively averted with Louise's armor, despite the best efforts of the universe. She was offered many forms of dress for women, with little protection. She then decided that she wanted the male-style ones, which look basically like the canon Overlords' ones.

She then decided that she wanted the male-style ones, which look basically like the canon Overlords' ones. She keeps getting insulted for it, but Louise can actually survive explosions and combat as a result of wearing actual armor.



** [[spoiler:Louise and her "confusion" about Princess Henrietta, which is getting worse over time. Louise gets very flustered by the Princess, and keeps having to convince herself that it's her Evil blood's traditional reaction to a captive princess]].



* TakeThat: Louise rants about the idiocy of the imperial system of measurement at one point due to it's ridiculous conversion rates.
** Jessica is very insistent that subtitles are far better than dubbing.

** Jessica is very insistent that subtitles are far better than dubbing. Louise shoots right back that she doesn't want to read words on the screen at the same time people are talking.



* ToThePain: Scarron gives a rather impressively gruesome description of what he will do to Louise if she allows Jessica to get killed.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: See DanceOfRomance above for a good example. Emperor Lee's catchprase is the epitome of this. And it's far from being the only example.
