* CrissCrossAttack:
** Valkenhayn's [[FinishingMove Astral Heat]], "Blut Vollmond", acts this way: after he somersault kicks his foe to the air, he morphs into a werewolf and starts slashing his enemies from multiple sides, ending with a heavy downward clawing attack.
** Bang Shishigami, as his [[PurposefullyOverpowered Unlimited Form]] has [[MythologyGag Chipp's "Zansei Rouga"]] as one of his {{Limit Break}}s.
** Taokaka gets this move in the third game, called "Aerial Dancing Edge" where she uppercuts the enemy to the air, then she flies through them multiple times, slicing them with her claws. She ends it with a DivingKick.
** Celica as her [[PurposefullyOverpowered "Unlimited" self]] gains a LimitBreak where her RobotBuddy Minerva transforms into a plane and knocks the enemy to the air, then flies up and rams them from all sides.

** The illustrations that one can unlock in the galleries lay it on really thick at times too, again both ways. Ranging from some of the girls laying in bed together, in advanced states of undress, and more. Suffice to say that Arc System Works knows damned good and well that their characters are sexy and are not even remotely shy about showing them off.

*** And that's not even mentioning the material collections where not even [[ElegantGothicLolita Rachel]] is safe from scantily-clad scenarios, various states of undress, or suggestive shots of her and Noel dripping with les yay.

*** And that's not even mentioning the material collections where not even [[ElegantGothicLolita Rachel]] is safe from scantily-clad scenarios, various states of undress, or suggestive shots of her and Noel dripping with les yay. And let's not even get started on the one where she's eating cream dipped strawberries somewhat messily resulting in some...pretty suggestive imagery.

** There's also another war stated in ''CF'', the Prime Field Wars, which also tells about the truth of the world. [[spoiler:The [[ArtificialHuman Boundary Interfaces Prime Field Devices]] were sent into the Boundary to contact the Master Unit to give them phenomenal powers, but doing so also gave them sentience, and then they were turned into mindless weapons of war. The Master Unit, being inhabited by the first Prime Field Device, got tired of humanity doing it and thus the war broke between humanity and Prime Field Devices. While the PFDs overwhelmed the humans, the latter invented some solutions, including the Izayoi and the very first Black Beast, the latter of which outright destroyed the world, forcing the Master Unit to recreate the world through Takamagahara. That's how the very world of Blazblue begin.]]

Added DiffLines:

* SadlyMythcharacterized: The series draws heavily from Japanese myth, but depicts Amaterasu as a [[DeusEstMachina machine]] with the ability to interfere with physics and change the timeline (within limits), Take-Mizazuchi as a KillSat and Susano'o as a suit of PoweredArmor and a SoulJar [[spoiler: as well as the real body and identity of Terumi]].

Added DiffLines:

* FunnyXRay: The XRaySparks of some characters show some funny tidbits:
** Taokaka apparently stuffs a fish under her long sleeves. Kokonoe stuffs sweets in the same maner.
** Hakumen doesn't show any skeleton (being an AnimatedArmor), instead he just shows some odd TronLines.
** Terumi briefly shows his ghostly features instead of his skeleton.
** Relius apparently has his arm and a leg replaced by prosthesis.

* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: Good god did ''[=BlazBlue=]'' evolve into this trope. What started off as a MinimalistCast with a manageable roster of only 12 characters, has grown into ''35'' by ''Central Fiction''. That's not getting in the [=NPCs=], either.

* {{Microtransactions}}: In the first three games, the Unlimited characters can be unlocked by playing different game modes... or paying a small fee. Likewise, Mu-12 in the second game, Kagura in the third, and [[spoiler:Susanoo]] in the fourth require you to play through the Story Mode to unlock... or again, a small fee.



* MyFutureSelfAndMe: Depending on the friends you have and how much they like spoilers, it can be strangely unsurprising or MindScrew when you find out that [[spoiler:Hakumen is the future Jin Kisaragi, but he's renounced his {{Jerkass}} past to become a different kind of [[LawfulStupid jerkass.]] In Hakumen's story, it is revealed that the original Jin, the one that was kind to Saya, was in love with Tsubaki. Tsubaki, however, ended up sacrificing herself to save Jin.]]

to:

* {{Mukokuseki}}: Usually averted given the matching looks and nationalities, but certain characters still play this straight, such as Tsubaki Yayoi (who has red hair and blue eyes), Kokonoe and Konoe Mercury (pink hair and yellow eyes, though both are confirmed to be part-Japanese), Hazama[=/=]Yuuki Terumi (green hair and yellow eyes), and Amane Nishiki (blue eyes and purple hair). Bang Shishigami, despite looking correctly Asian, is actually not Asian in origin.
** The world of ''[=BlazBlue=]'' is post-apocalyptic, with most of the landmasses reduced to [[ToxicPhlebotinum seithr]] covered wastelands and people living in Hierarchical Cities on mountaintops. Genetically the cast includes people from England, Russia, Germany, America, Japan and China among others, but those countries don't exist anymore and years of mingling in the Hierarchical Cities have probably rendered ethnicity as we know it moot. As for Hazama, [[spoiler: he's an ArtificialHuman.]]
* MultipleEndings: At least in the first and second game, there are different kinds of endings each character can find; usually there's the good (canon) one, a bad one, and a gag one. Also, each game has a True Ending that you can see after you meet the good ending of every character (or just specific characters in the second game). In the third game and the fourth, meanwhile, the story is more streamlined, although gag endings still exist.
* MusclesAreMeaningful: Muscles do a pretty good job of hinting at a character's defensive potential. Tager is built like a brick shithouse, and he has the highest HP and defensive ability in the game. Azrael is another beefcake who can take plenty of punishment, and even Bang with his manly muscles is in fourth for highest HP capacity; Kagura ties with Bang in both muscles and HP. Downplayed a bit with Bullet, who are among the more well-toned girls in the game, and has the same amount of HP as Bang and Kagura above. All of the above (plus Ragna, who at least has some good amount of muscles), also hit ''really'' hard compared to other characters (bar Carl[[note]]Nirvana does the hitting, that is[[/note]], Makoto, Amane[[/note]]Drive-wise, otherwise he does weak hits[[/note]], Naoto and Nine[[note]]She does plenty of magic damage[[/note]]).

Tsubaki, however, ended up sacrificing herself to save Jin.him.]]
* MyNameIsQuestionMarks: In ''CT'', Hakumen and Nu's voice actors are listed as ???? in the Arcade credits. It's to hide the fact that [[spoiler:they share the same voice as Jin and Noel respectively - the separate twos are related in different ways. In the Story Mode credits, the voice actors' names are shown properly.

* DetachableBlades: In a ShoutOut to ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'', Hibiki's swords have detachable cutter-esque blades that he's shown replacing at the end of each match round. One of his [[LimitBreak Limit Breaks]] also start with him throwing the blades of his swords.
