* ArmedWithCanon: The Megami Sound Stages were written by Yuunoha supporters (or at least Nanofate opponents), while ''[[Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaVivid ViVid]]'' gives a slightly different look. For instance mention is made that Vivio's relationship with Fate is like that of an aunt (Vivio says she knows Fate isn't ''really'' her "mama" since it was Nanoha alone who adopted her) -- with the implication that Nanoha and Fate are [[LikeBrotherAndSister Like Sister and Sister]] -- but in ''[=ViVid=]'' she's back to calling her "Fate-mama". They also break the fourth wall, so their canonical significance was already pretty suspect.

** ''[=ViVid=]'' also has Vivio [[https://dynasty-scans.com/chapters/mahou_shoujo_lyrical_nanoha_vivid_ch77#26 explicitly telling another character that she has two mothers]].



** The relationship between Nanoha and Fate stopped being subtext due to [[http://imgur.com/sOUak02 this interview]] with series creator [[WordOfGod Masaki Tsuzuki]] as well as the voice actresses for [[Creator/YukariTamura Nanoha]] and [[Creator/NanaMizuki Fate]].



* NoHuggingNoKissing: The series has almost no romance onscreen, although [[ShipTease quite a lot is implied]]. Aside from Nanoha's brother and his girlfriend, the only confirmed relationship is between Amy and Chrono, and these characters mostly [[DemotedToExtra vanish after the second season]], and even when they were a part of the show nothing actually happens onscreen. There are several character pairs that have romantic overtones, but none of them are ever explicitly shown to be more than friendship.

** Nanoha/Yuuno was also sunk when it was [[http://imgur.com/sOUak02 confirmed]] by [[WordOfGay Masaki Tsuzuki]] and the voice actresses for [[Creator/YukariTamura Nanoha]] and [[Creator/NanaMizuki Fate]] that Nanoha ended up with Fate, post-A's.

* OverrankedSoldier: Many characters hold ranks that are highly implausible for their age. Most gratituous are Hayate (a lieutenant colonel) and Chrono (an admiral), both are barely twenty. Even Lindy commanding her own ship at 31 can be a bit of a stretch. Somewhat {{justified}} in Chrono's case, as he was promoted in the wake of a scandal that ended the careers of several high-ranking general staff.

* RecurringElement: Every season will have a "girl with sad eyes" which the heroes will save from their own unhappiness. They're ususally {{Dark Magical Girl}}s, but there have been [[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs some]] [[AudioPlay/StrikersSoundStageX exceptions]].

* CastFromCalories: The magical energy mages use to cast spells is generated by their bodies, so they have to replenish their calories at every opportunity.

Added DiffLines:

* NoTranshumanismAllowed: The series has an interesting take on this. Purely artificial life is apparently not only allowed but common in the form of magic-based familiars and magic-based augments like [[OlderThanTheyLook ageing retardation/youth maintenance]] are widespread. However, transhuman enhancement with genetic engineering or cybernetics is outlawed. [[AndroidsArePeopleToo Despite the illegality, no stigma is attached to actually being either since those enhanced rarely had a choice in the matter]].
** The illegality of genetic enhancement and cybernetics seems based more on the implication that the average experiment in these directions fails horribly. The subjects themselves are often actually provided therapy for dealing with such things.
** The fact that most results of the experiments double as [[PersonofMassDestruction Living WMDs]] is the other main factor. There's actually a good reason for this - the roots of the technology are derived from fallen civilizations that used it to create SuperSoldiers.

The entire series is animated by Seven Arcs (Except for the [=ViVid=] anime, which is animated by Creator/A1Pictures) and written by Masaki Tsuzuki, who has a habit of radically [[GenreShift shifting its tone and feel]] between almost every installment.

* WorldOfBuxom: There isn't much variety in breast sizes for the characters who are at least in their teens or are already adults (physically); the two most common sizes that you'll see are "big" and "bigger". They're realistically sized rather than being [[GagBoobs extreme]] like some examples of this trope can get, though. Downplayed in the first two series where a large portion of the female characters are children, but becomes more obvious after the TimeSkip to ''[=StrikerS=]'' since at this point most of the female cast are either in their adolescence or adults. However, the rule doesn't apply to everyone: characters like [[{{Bifauxnen}} Otto]] or [[ACupAngst Iris]] are flat-chested, [[TheNapoleon Caro]] is as well once she gets older, and Sein is the only character in the animated canon who has small (but not nonexistent) breasts and isn't physically a child. Once ''[=ViVid=]'' comes around the trope starts to fade a bit; while some of the new characters are still buxom, overall they have a far more diverse variety of breasts sizes. For example, Lutecia from [=StrikerS=] [[SheIsAllGrownUp shows up as a teen]] in that manga, and turns out to be one of the small breasted characters.

** Inverted with {{Flight}}. For the first two seasons, the ability to fly appeared to be a rather standard skill for mages to have. Then ''[=StrikerS=]'' showed that being able to fly was actually really rare (only a few of the new characters can do so and none of them are protagonists). Neither ''[=ViVid=]'' or ''[=ViVid=] Strike!'' introduced any characters who can fly.

* CreatingLifeIsBad: Played with. While the act of cloning is both immoral and highly illegal, the people created as a result are the same as any other person and [[ClonesArePeopleToo are given full human rights]]. The real problem is that the {{Mad Scientist}}s that create them tend to abuse said human rights and use them as SuperSoldiers.
