* ArtShift: When a classmate's head turns into a howler monkey's head, the howler head is photorealistic, instead of animated. It's quite jarring, to say the least. Later, the same style is used when Dokuro [[spoiler: turns another guy's head into a dog head, and ''another guy's head into the head of a deer]].

* BookEnds: At the beginning of the first episode of season one, Sakura walks in to find Dokuro dressing, she proceeds to kill him. Then in the final episode of the first season sakura walks in to find dokuro dressing but with a towel on, but it falls off and she kills him again.
* BreakTheCutie: This happens quite fast. It even comes with a crazy laugh every now and then. Dokuro-chan has somewhat of a VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry laugh.

** Sakura, when Shizuki says she likes another guy, he becomes this, while flailing his arms like a GarrysMod ragdoll.

''Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan'' (''Club-to-Death Angel Dokuro-chan''), released in English speaking countries as ''Bludgeoning Angel Dokuro-chan'', is a small Japanese franchise consisting of 10 light novels plus one extra book, six "pairs" of {{Anime}} episodes, 3 volumes of {{Manga}}, and a Playstation 2 video game. The series centers around Sakura, a fairly nondescript Junior High student that was marked for death by God due to the fact that he will invent a form of immortality in the future that prevents women from aging after 12 years of age (creating "a pedophile's world", as one character comments). God sends Dokuro, an angelic assassin, back in time to kill him.

* TearJerker: Sabato's not allowed to return to the future until she accomplishes her mission of killing Sakura, and so she's forced to live in an improvised shelter beneath a bridge, fending for herself. The ending of the first season depicts her gloomily sitting inside her haven as she watches the rain pouring, and the sad song that accompanies it named "Survive" just adds to the feeling of sorrow, discomfort and loneliness of her predicament, making it hard not to feel sorry for her.
** In the next two episodes, near the end of the song, a puppy emerges from inside her cardboard home and she puts it on her lap, making the scene take a slightly more heartwarming tone. But then, in the final episode, the cardboard is completely empty until the same puppy comes out and looks into the distance alone, apparently waiting for Sabato to come back. The [[TheStinger following scene]] shows Sabato was forced to flee as the police attempted to capture her, meaning she never came back and the puppy was most likely abandoned.
** In the second season she's moved to yet another cardboard box, and her living conditions had gone from bad to worse. She's seen bemoaning and begging to come back home.

'''Dokuro''': [[ILied No angelic powers]].\\
'''Sakura''': No tear gas, either.\\

* BlackComedy: It's a wacky comedy about repeated bloody murder and dismemberment in order to prevent a lolicon paradise. It gets to the point where one joke in the second season is that Sakura somehow ''avoids'' getting killed simply because several angels can't agree on how to do it.

* StopHelpingMe: Invoked. Sakura ends up saying this (or something along these lines) a ''lot'' to his guardian angel.



* TooDumbToLive: Sakura, in spades. One would think he'd get a clue to stay away from Sabato the fourth time she tried to kill him in ten minutes. Or as soon as he saw the halo and horns, especially given Dokuro's record of killing him repeatedly. Considering how much he's died he just might not care that much anymore.
