** Aside from the obvious fact that death goddess Izanami's moves incorporate a lot of skeletal and ghostly imagery, she also has one move that surrounds her with a barrier, demonstrating the futulity in trying to kill death, as well as one command throw that allows her to drain both the opponent's life and barrier guage, serving as a reminder that, well, she is death: Everything that keeps the living alive progressively becomes her domain. She also has two distortions that allow her to stop time, tying in to how death is an absence of time to the living. Finally, there's the fact that she's a DanceBattler, but what dance is her fighting style based upon? Shiva's Tandava: The dance with which Shiva ends the universe. Which, incidentally, is ultimately Izanami's goal.

** Mai attacks foes using her weapon, the Gallia Sphyra: Outseal, which also has the innate ability to automatically teach its wielder how to use it. Coincidentally, Mai is designed to be [[SkillGateCharacter easy to pick up for beginners]] with her Variable Arts providing simple yet powerful combos and her Drive being easy to use in comparison to the rest of the cast. Mai's low learning curve makes it so that, much like with Mai using the Outseal, anyone can be an InstantExpert at using her.

* Most people who have played ''VideoGame/{{BlazBlue}}'' and watched ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' will know that Jin and Simon have the same Japanese voice actor. It had already occurred to me [[PlayingAgainstType how vastly different these two roles are]], but what really hit me was the realization that they're ''literally polar opposites''. Simon is a HotBlooded {{Badass}}, and Jin spends a good portion of the series as [[EvilIsDeathlyCold a cold-hearted]] {{Jerkass}}! --Tropers/CrazedNinja

** Nu's fighting style displays her as the sword-dispensing proper Murakumo Unit with a hidden [[{{Yandere}} sadistic streak especially for Ragna]]. Lambda, meanwhile, only has an imitation of the Murakumo and thus is unable to show its full potential, so she has some original moves to compensate. Mu, however, has the upgraded Murakumo, dubbed "Kusanagi", which makes her capable of using the True Azure in her attacks and thus has more potential of destruction. Her attacks are also more calculated and tactical as opposed to Noel's more flashy attacks, showing great contrast between the two halves of the same person.



*** As Izayoi, she instead copies Jin (her other idol)'s attacks (like the directional quick slashes and the sword projectile) and combines it with Murakumo Unit's tactics (more refined FlashStep, launching big swords and uses sword-esque drones) due to Zero-type Izayoi being the Murakumo prototype.



** Bullet is a rather aggresive person who prefers settling things quickly, and as such her Drive moves her towards her opponent to attack, which also powers her up if successfully done. The fiery effect also shows her hotheaded personality.



** Tsubaki dislikes war - given what it did to [[LoveInterest her precious "Jinny"]], one can hardly blame her. There may be other reasons beyond this.

** Tsubaki dislikes war - given what it did to [[LoveInterest her precious "Jinny"]], one can hardly blame her. There may ''CF'' also reveals her desire to be other reasons beyond this."a world where the Dark War didn't exist and everything's better".



** Bullet dislikes miniskirts and prefers wearing pants. As she was practically raised as a mercenary with most of its member being male, it's implied that their habits rubbed off on her.



** Celica has "nothing" listed as her dislike because she's an AllLovingHero who cares for people.



** Izanami's dislike is Ragna the Bloodedge due to her vessel's lingering feelings towards him and her struggle to control her body.

** Izanami's dislike is Ragna the Bloodedge due to her vessel's lingering feelings towards him and her struggle to control her body. [[spoiler:She's also implied to know what Ragna is, i.e "the Central Fiction", and Amaterasu's manipulation - which screws the world up - revolves around him alone, which gives her a reason to hate Ragna.]]

* The reveals put the partnership between Terumi & Izanami in a new light. [[spoiler:Terumi and Relius tortured Saya in order to try to break her soul. They sort of succeeded, with half staying in Saya and becoming Izanami and the other hitching a ride on Mu-12 and becoming Noel. Furthermore, Izanami is in part a facet of Master Unit Amaterasu. Terumi ''is'' Susanō'o, who exists to destroy what Amaterasu creates. The two ''hate each other at the most fundamental level''. In addition, their end goals are mutually exclusive; she wants to KillEmAll, he needs people alive to fear him to survive, so in retrospect they have absolutely no reason to work together.]]

** That scene is made to be ambiguous and context-lacking, anyway. Likely being saved for a new game.



* When [[spoiler:Susanoo flattens Ragna, Jin, Noel, Izayoi and Jubei without any effort, Ragna states that he is even stronger than [[WorldsStrongestMan Azr]][[TheDreaded ael]]. It's actually not hyperbole. Aside from the [[PhysicalGod obvious]], if you take the game stats into account with the story, Azrael when played is only 1/8 of is strength therefore approximately 11000-12000 times 8 = 88000-96000 when at full power. As for Susanoo, remember that Unlimited Hakumen is operating at 20% power at best with 20000 health. Therefore, since Terumi is using the Susanoo Unit at full 100% capacity, it's suffice to say that his actual in-story health is actually 20000 times 5 = '''100000'''. So, in both the logic of the game and story, Susanoo is really stronger than Azrael.]]
* [[spoiler: In the ending of ''CF'', Ragna erases all memories of his existence by returning to the Master Unit as he is the Central Fiction. Now think back to Nine rant about how The Master Unit doesn't give a damn about people like her. It may sound like typical nihilist rant, but if you replace Master Unit with "author", Central Fiction with "CreatorsPet" suddenly everything makes sense. The story of Blazblue is the deconstruction of TheProtagonist trope!! Nine is actually ranting about how she and her sister Celica are nothing but supporting characters for the main plot, meaning that they are pretty much fodder in the eyes of the author. She went into the Boundary and found out that she is a supporting character that gets killed off and her family is that way because the author makes it that way for drama while Ragna realized that as long he exists, [[BlackHoleSue all the other characters just be in supporting roles and cannot move forward]]. Is it any wonder Nine is the way she is and why Ragna wants to erase himself from existence?]]

* Consider the plight of Nu post epilogue: She's bed bound in the convent her sisters run after been physically mangled by Hakumen to the point of complete incapacitation, her right (Azure Grimoire) eye is bandaged over [[EyeScream (so in all likelihood gone)]], and Ragna, her object of obsession and sole raison d'être, no longer exists and erased any trace of his existence from her mind. All adding up to possibly spending the rest of her maybe-immortal existence as a complete vegetable, or at very least someone who in her own mind has absolutely no reason for living. [[LaserGuidedKarma Unless you think she deserved it.]]

* The bit with Rachel and [[spoiler: Tsubaki with the Ōkami; how did she get it? And if she is in the Susanō'o Unit, how did she get that after Trinity threw it back into the boundary? Unless this Tsubaki herself fell into the boundary (possibly in Jin's place) and acquired it there. Shapeshifting accounted for, seems a bit on the short side for a Susanō'o though.]]

* Carl's Act 3 arcade story has him face off against Relius, only this time, he just fights him to see how ''Ignis works''. Afterwards, Carl simply states that ''she's well-made'', much to Relius' approval. Uh, Carl? That's your ''MOTHER'' you're talking about here. It really does a good job of showing how Carl's mindset is starting to become more similar to Relius.

** [[spoiler: Susano'o has something of a odd fighting style as he starts with one special move and his other specials need to be unlocked by attacking and using his drive. However if you look back in CF's Story Mode, after his fight with Es, Terumi is forced out of the Susano'o armor, saying that he's not fully used to being back in the Susano'o armor just yet. It shows in his fights as he starts off weak but gets stronger the more specials he unlocks, making him a dangerous force to be reckoned with if he's allowed to have all of his specials unlocked and ready to be used.]]

** Nine makes use of her extended knowledge with several different kinds of magic with her unique system. Her preferred kind of magic, though, is fire, which reflects her fiery, impulsive personality.
