* ThePowerOfLove: Issei is powered by a combination of lust and genuine love/care for his friends. However, in a slightly surprising twist, him calling on the power of love is generally a horrific, bloody, and all around terrifying experience. Asia's [[spoiler:apparent]] murder by Shalba triggered Juggernaut Drive, which nearly caused him to kill all his friends. Ravels kidnapping meant he no longer cared what happened to {{Mooks}} in his way. [[spoiler:His parents being taken]] nearly drove him insane with rage. In short, the PowerOfLove is invoked when the object of love is ''threatened'', and used to ensure whatever threat existed ceases to do so immediately.

** A hilarious combination of the trope both being played straight and combined with ThePowerOfHate comes in Episode 8 of season 3, where Issei and Koneko make use of the intense rivalry between [[ClingyJealousGirl Rias and Akeno]]. [[spoiler:Both girls are struggling with a trio of strong opponents, and Issei tells Akeno he'll take her out on a date if she wins. Akeno immediately gains a HeroicSecondWind, followed by a furious and jealous Rias gaining an even ''greater'' second wind, topped in short order by another one from Akeno, until both women are putting out peak power. Their main opponent angrily berates them for [[CatFight arguing over a man during their battle]], and the two women angrily blast her away, demanding she stay out of it.]]

** A darker variation with episode 1 of BORN. It starts off with Issei having an erotic dream of the girls topless and telling him to have at them, and he's all-too-eager to start. Then Raynare appears to cruelly mock him and Issei ends up snapping awake on the verge of tears.

* BittersweetEnding: Surprisingly, the canon spin-off "EX" revealed that the girls in Issei harem will not have an happy future, but instead, their future will be a lonely one. Two of Issei's children from the future have in fact stated that Issei has always greatly neglected all of his wifes and is never around them, being always extremely busy with his own career as a celebrity and never finding the time for even meeting his own wifes. Plus, they also stated that Issei has never spent any time with his own childrens and had no role in raising them. Lampshaded by the author, who said he wanted an ending where the characters don't have a 100% happy future.

* CantCatchUp: Beginning to show shades of this in the light novels in regards to the other members compared to Issei and Kiba, but especially Issei. They both start off as relatively weak members of the Occult Club with Issei being by far the weakest and Kiba being only around Koneko's level at best. Rias and Akeno at this point were far stronger. Then Kiba and Issei master Balance Breaker and everyone is left coughing in the dust. This is best exemplified when Issei was able to beat Sairaorg Bael using his [[spoiler:Balance Breaker]] whereas Kiba, Xenovia and Rossweisse (the three strongest in the Occult Club with Kiba being by far the stronger of the three) only managed to cut off an arm of Sairaorg [[spoiler:without Balance Breaker]] and the rest likely couldn't even scratch him. Right now, Issei is by far the strongest member of the Occult Research Club, with Kiba just behind.
** This has been thankfully subverted in the later volumes, as the girls begin to acquire their own methods of fighting at that level. Issei remains the strongest, but the others are no longer irrelevant.
