* {{Troperiffic}}: The very first game of the series, ''Atelier Marie'', has a lot of fun with this: the intro appears to be lifted directly from RecordOfLodossWar, "Light And Darkness" and all, and seems to be setting up an incredibly cliched experience... then the game reminds you that 99% of the population of this world ''isn't'' a world-saving hero and just goes about their normal lives. [[TheEveryman And that you're one of these people]]. Cue title screen and the surprise of many 1997 gamers.

** What makes the above even more interesting is that [[spoiler:the relationship is ''interracial''; Elie is, essentially, a white-as-the-driven Fantasy-Austrian, and Romauge's precise place of origin is unclear, but she has the same dark skin and silver hair as My, and a few bits of dialogue suggest they're from the same area, which My makes clear elsewhere is the setting's equivalent of the Middle East. So it isn't just a seemingly-lesbian relationship, it's a seemingly-lesbian relationship between the fantastic equivalent of an Austrian and an Arab! More cynical fans sometimes speculate that all these factors are part of what kept ''Atelier Elie'' out of the States or the EU in the late 90s.]]

** The most recent games are difficult to place. ''Atelier Liese'' and ''Atelier Annie'' are clearly in continuity with each other, and at first glance the Arland games (''Atelier Rorona'' thru ''Meruru'') also appear to form their own continuity. However, there are ''vague'' hints that ''Liese/Annie'' may well take place in the "Salburg" continuity and that the Arland games may be in continuity with ''them''; Gust is being very cagey about all this currently. (Meanwhile, ''Atelier Lina'' [[BlackSheep seems to sit all by its lonesome]] like ''Iris 3'' does.)

*** With the reveal of [[VideoGame/AtelierEschaAndLogyAlchemistsOfTheDuskSky Logy]] appearing in Sophie, it looks like Sophie takes place in the "Dusk" universe, and happens at around the same time as [[VideoGame/AtelierShallieAlchemistsOfTheDuskSea Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea]].

** This is especially hilarious for the name of the principality in which the first three games (and the manga) take place in - ever since the beginning of the series, Gust Inc. has spelled it "Salburg" and even [[http://www.salburg.com runs a website]] bearing that name. Given that the setting is meant to be vaguely like Renaissance Germany, however, the pronunciation in katakana features a "za" instead of a "sa"; ergo, the name of the city is rendered by Tokyopop and some fan translators as "Zarlburg". Apparently Americans are [[ViewersAreMorons too dumb]] to understand GratuitousGerman pronunciation.

* AlchemyIsMagic: Played with in various ways. It's treated more like a scientific pursuit in the "original series" of five games, as there are schools and structured study of alchemy throughout, and a significant part of ''Atelier Elie'''s alchemy system is experimenting to make entirely new items. In ''VideoGame/AtelierTotoriTheAdventurerOfArland'', both Mimi and Marc suggest that alchemy is like magic, but Totori insists that it isn't. An actual magician later appears in ''VideoGame/AtelierAyeshaTheAlchemistOfDusk'' and points out that alchemists are mere copycats, or otherwise similar in some ways, but it's not actual magic.

* {{Expy}}: The series usually avoids this, but in the case of ''Atelier Annie'', when the new art for an older version of Liese Randel was released, any half-informed anime fan couldn't help but notice that she looks ''[[http://atelier-ds.jp/annie/wp/wp_14_1024.jpg almost exactly]]'' like Signum from ''LyricalNanoha''.
