** 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.

** [[spoiler: Serenity's bodyguards, at the Fall of the Moon Kingdom, gave their lives so that Queen Serenity and Princess Serenity could get away. 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.

With the way the war against the Senshi was going (a war of attrition that the Senshi were slowly losing), they probably would have won if they hadn't attacked.

* 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.

* CrazyPrepared: ''This'' trope, more than anything, is why Jadeite's attempt on Nanoha's life failed. ''Everyone'' at the wedding who could fight came armed and prepared to do so, ''just in case''.

** Nanoha notices that the bodyguard of a family friend bears a close resemblance to Fate, referencing said bodyguard's existence in TriangleHeart3. At least some wedding guests thought they ''were'' siblings.

* WriterOnBoard: Bissek goes out of his way to give the Senshi the short end of the stick, using an altered canon that incorporates elements cherry-picked from both manga and anime canon with the goal of making the Senshi look as weak, useless, and morally bankrupt as possible. The whole issue with Serenity killing herself, for instance, is taken from the manga, while the Senshi themselves display abilities only on par with their heavily-nerfed anime counterparts. The villains that the Senshi struggled with for over a year are also trivially dispatched within weeks of the TSAB showing up. And let's not even get started on [[DudeNotFunny the Picoha omake]].
