* {{Badass}}: A lot.
** BadassAdorable: The girls may look beautiful but most of them are strong enough to easily destroy buildings.
** BadassCrew: You have the Occult Research Club, Khaos Brigade's Vali Team, the Kuoh Student Council, Sairaorg's team, and then there's [[spoiler: [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy Khaos Brigade's Hero Faction.]]]]
** BadassFamily: The Gremory family. When you've got the Crimson-Haired Ruin Princess (Rias), the Silver-Haired Queen of Annihilation (Grayfia), and the Brunette Madame of Extinction (Lady Gremory) gunning after you, you might wanna run away pretty fast.
** BadassNormal: Sairaorg lacks any special power but trained his [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower body]] hard enough that he can defeat any of the devils in his generation with [[CurbStompBattle ease]]. Only [[EmpoweredBadassNormal Issei]] can stand up to him among the new generation of devils.
** CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: One would never expect that perverted OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent to be someone that went toe to toe with some of the strongest beings in mythology and won.
** EmpoweredBadassNormal: Issei. He has a Sacred Gear but it's noted that he achieved his level of power not because of his sacred gear but because of TrainingFromHell and his [[{{Determinator}} will to never give up]]. Otherwise he would be far weaker.
** OneManArmy: [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking Any of the leaders of the factions]], [[EmpoweredBadassNormal Issei]] plus his rivals, and the [[PhysicalGod Gods]].

Not to be confused with ''LightNovel/SoICantPlayH'' (which started airing an anime around the same time with a similar red-haired MagicalGirlfriend), or the similarly-named ''Manga/HighSchoolOfTheDead'' and ''Manga/ShinjukuDxD''. Has an in-progress [[Recap/HighschoolDxD Recap page]].

** Which is closer to the original depictions of devils in some sources (where they are primarily a [[TheTrickster trickster figure]] who tempts humans to do their bidding rather than outright omnicidal, maliciously evil. The devil jobs that Issei and co. do reflect this.

* FunbagAirbag: In Season 3, while the group travel to the Underworld on a train, Akeno fall on top of Issei due to the emergency stop.


Added DiffLines:

** The first special of Season 3 has Rias and Akeno compete for Issei's affections. Rias begins by acting and dressing like a sexy school teacher while Akeno plays the role of housewife wearing noting but an apron.

* BalancedHarem: Averted. While the anime tries to give the girls equal screen-time, some girls (Rias in particular) seem to get way more focus then anyone else.


Added DiffLines:

* SupportingHarem: All the girls know that while Issei may love each and every one of them, Rias is the one to hold the title "legal wife". Doesn't mean that they'll let her get all the attention however.

* ShoutOut:
** Issei activates his Sacred Gear by shouting "[[Manga/DragonBall Kamehameha!]] ('Dragon-ha!' in the anime)" and his first client was hoping for a female demon (Koneko) he could dress up as [[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya Yuki Nagato]].
** Episode 4 of the anime has [[Anime/RozenMaiden a Suigintou poster]].
** Episode 7
-->'''Familiar Master''': "[[Anime/{{Pokemon}} Tsukaima, Getto da ze!]]"
-->'''Issei''': "Sprite Dragon...I choose y-!"
*** Oh and for kicks, the author is also a fan of Franchise/{{Pokemon}}.
** In episode 10, during the Rating Game against Riser, the Rook that Koneko fights in the Gymnasium looks like [[VideoGame/StreetFighter Chun Li]] and even [[KickChick fights like her]].
** According to the author, he [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial specifically denied that the three short stories]] in Volume 8 ([[Manga/ThePrinceOfTennis The Breasts of Tennis]], [[Manga/HellTeacherNube Hell Teacher Azazel]], and [[Film/ThreeHundred 300 Isseis]]) had nothing to do with the series they were referencing.
** Also according to the author, Trident's Welsh Sonic Boost Knight form discarding excess armor for amazing speed is a reference to Series/KamenRiderKabuto's Cast Off ability.
** There are also a lot of Franchise/{{Gundam}} and other SuperRobot shout-outs, too.
*** Welsh Blaster Bishop is a shout-out to the [[Anime/AfterWarGundamX Gundam Double X]].
*** The first stage of Welsh Sonic Boost Knight is modeled after [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWars Wild Würger]].
*** Welsh Dragonic Rook is modeled after [[Anime/TheBigO Big O]], down to it's Sudden Impact finisher.
*** Cardinal Crimson Queen is modeled after the Freedom Gundam from ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED Gundam SEED]]''.
*** In fact, the author has a collection of Gundams according to his official blog.
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=824I9NvLn04 second preview of the second season of the anime]] reveals Vali's Balance Breaker, which is highly similar to [[Anime/CodeGeass Lancelot Albion]]. Considering the Vanishing Dragon's name...
*** Confirmed at Episode 6 of the 2nd season anime, the design is really based on [[Anime/CodeGeass Lancelot Albion]], down to the helmet.
** The way Freed Zelzan pronounces Excalibur is really similar to another [[Manga/SoulEater Holy Sword]] [[http://img407.imageshack.us/img407/227/1287208133569.png from a land far far away...]]
** One of the games [[http://i42.tinypic.com/5yyydz.jpg Issei and Azazel plays is]] ''VideoGame/DragonsCrown'' with player one using [[BuxomIsBetter The Sorceress]].
** Issei's Boosted Gear in general is very much like Kazuma the Shell Bullet from ''Anime/SCryEd''.
** When Gasper is first introduced, he takes to hiding in a cardboard box, making a ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' reference by referring to himself as a snake and Issei as Big Boss
** In the dubbed Episode 2, Issei mutters a very [[Film/ForrestGump familiar prayer]]. This is of course a case of Woolseyism as Issei is uninjured despite already being a devil at this point.
** Episode 1 of [=BorN=] has the 'Perverted Trio' and Kiriyu talking about how Motohama and the latter have 'scouter sight', and when Kiriyu uses her's on Issei's junk, he freaks with [[Anime/DragonBallZ "Her scouting level's over 9000!"]]
** Episode 8 throws in direct references to [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic My Little Pony]] (of all things), and [[{{Franchise/Superman}} Superman.]]

** Issei and Kiba vs Xenovia and Irina. [[spoiler:The latter two win rather easily, largely due to faults the former two had, such as Kiba attempting to use a big, heavy sword which negated his speed advantage, and in Issei's case, Koneko warning Irina about his Dress Breaker ability ahead of time.]]

* DefeatByModesty: Issei's Dress Break invokes this, sure its mainly used on females but usually it's not modesty that defeats them, it's the heavy-handed blasting coming from Issei or one of his teammates as person in question covers their naughty bits.

** PlayedForLaughs during Issei's first fight with Irina. He attempts to use his "Dress Breaker" move on her, but Koneko warns the girl what said ability is used for. Consequently, Irina dodges his attempts to touch her. When he complains about Koneko helping their enemy, she simply states that he is an enemy to all women.
