** Specifically she's announcing herself as the subject of the sentence twice (and she's the subject of all her sentences, given that she's narrating her own dialog), although the translators necessarily took some liberties in how it was phrased. This is also a case of a VerbalTic being embedded inside another VerbalTic, possibly making her the most annoying character to listen to ever devised.

* TakeOffYourClothes: Touma suggests that Misaka 10032 take off her brazier when Last Order steals her goggles to help differentiate her from Mikoto. She assumes he wants her to strip for other reasons and proceeds to do so. ''In the middle of the street''.

* MutuallyExclusiveMagic:
** Esper powers rely on creating a "personal reality" and imposing it on the world, while magic relies on inviting concepts with heavy memetic weight (such as deities and popular stories) into the user's body to gain their power. Once a person has been trained as an esper, even if he has no real powers, he cannot use magic without disrupting his personal reality and causing massive hemorrhaging. Tsuchimikado, for example, is able to use magic anyway because his esper ability happens to be a mild HealingFactor, and another manages to pull it off by focusing all his esper abilities on holding his body together. Magic is said to have been created for people who couldn't use esper powers, back when they appeared only by chance.
** The mages of God's Right Seat each wield an enormously powerful divine ability themed after a different archangel, but in order to do so they had to give up their ability to use standard magic. This is a bit of a problem for their leader Fiamma, who needs some standard magic to enact his grand master plan.

** Perhaps unintentionally {{HandWave}}d in-universe when an actual explanation for how the esper powers work is provided. Essentially, Espers are artificially created minor [[RealityWarper reality warpers]]. They reject reality as it applies to them and replace it with one wherein their powers work. So any discrepancies on how the powers disagree with physics can just be attributed to their "personal realities" having flat-out different rules than the one we know. Leads to some FridgeLogic moments where one wonders what would happen if they tried to change their personal realities to something else.

* {{Determinator}}: Touma is surprisingly tenacious against overwhelming opponents. Even when he knows he is outclassed and his power can't help him, he charges in anyway just to prove a point, and because he's the hero. His EvilLaugh is ''[[MomentOfAwesome amazing]]''.

** When Komoe is asked if there is an esper who can detect other espers, she jokingly imitates the iconic scene from ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' where Vegeta yelled, "It's over 9,000!" However, she says, "70,000!" instead.
