* {{Badass}}: Hero, Lady Knight and South Arctic General.

to:

* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: A good number of leaders we see in the series, whether on the heroic or villainous side, ''earned'' those positions.
* {{Badass}}: Hero, Lady Knight and South Arctic General.A solid portion of the cast, each in their own way. Some excel at fighting, while others are good at using their words.
** BadassBookworm: Female Mage, after following Hero to the Demon Realm, travels about, finding out ways to increase her magical power. At one point, she read all of the Fairy Clan's secret arts before leaving to pursue rumors of even greater magic. She finds it. And when she reappears before Hero again, she wastes no time in teleporting an entire army of 2,000 demons away from the battlefield.



* BattleButler: The Head Maid lists bodyguard duties and leading armies among her responsibilities as a maid.

to:

* BattleButler: The Head Maid lists bodyguard duties and leading armies among her responsibilities as a maid. Naturally, Butler is also this, as one of Hero's (and the previous Hero's) companions known as Archer.



** When the forces defending Gateway City are being crushed by the Holy Key Expedition, Demon Queen, Duke Silver Tiger, and Eastern Commander appear from behind the attacking army to reinforce their allies.



* BloodKnight: The South Arctic General of the Fanged Beast Clan is a giant walrus who'd rather loot and fight than listen to the Demon Queen.

to:

* BloodKnight: The South Arctic General of the Fanged Beast Clan is a giant walrus who'd rather loot and fight than listen to the Demon Queen. The One-Eyed Commander also counts, becoming obsessed with revenge after his humiliation and near-execution.



* CavalryBetrayal: The church decides to test out their new [[spoiler:guns]] on the frontline [[spoiler:Blue Demon Tribe]] while they are fighting for their lives in combat with [[spoiler:triad forces]]. CurbStompBattle ensues as the usurper Demon King himself (and thousands of human soldiers) are slaughtered by waves of ''lava''.

[[spoiler:the Southern Union]]. CurbStompBattle ensues as the usurper Demon King himself (and thousands of human soldiers) are slaughtered by waves of ''lava''.[[spoiler:bullets]]. In order to retreat, Female Knight is forced to use their Greek Fire tactic early.



* ChurchMilitant: The Crusaders.

to:

* ChurchMilitant: The Crusaders.Crusaders, and later the Holy Key Expeditionary Force. The Archbishop is specifically pointed out to be an extremist.



* CorruptChurch: While many of its followers (in particular, villagers and nuns) are quite benign and devout, the desires of power, avarice and control have infected much of the Central Church of the Light Spirit, causing it to work in league with the power brokers in nobility. They gang up on the [[spoiler:Crimson Scholar, labeling her a 'heretic']] not because of any true theological issues, but because [[spoiler: her inventions and innovations that brought bounty to the Southern Triad has weakened the Triad's need to be dependent on the Central Nation and, thus, do whatever they are told.]] By the end of the anime version of the story, [[spoiler: Knight's convent of the Lakeside Church, where she is prioress,]] break off from the Central Church.

** The Holy Key Expeditionary Force does this to both their supposed allies, the [[spoiler:Blue Demon Clan]], and the Southern Union, with the use of [[spoiler:muskets]]. They do it again in the face of Gateway City's saturation attack, thanks to their improved efficiency at the hands of the Blue Ash King.



** The Blue Ash King is horrified when the Church uses their foot soldiers as [[spoiler:suicide bombers]]. Before that, Royal Prince Marshal clearly hides the fact that the White Knight Nation was supposed to ambush the Southern Union from the Blue Ash King.



* HopeSpot: In the Comp Ace Manga Just when it seems Maoh/Red Eyes will successfully bring a ceasefire between the humans and demons and finally start to bring peace to both worlds, the Blue/Azure demon tribe sets in motion to have her removed from her position as the demon lord, obviously to replace her with a demon lord that will not only refuse to call for a ceasefire but continue the war on their terms.

* LightIsNotGood: Some of the church members aren't exactly using their powers for the good of mankind, such as when they declare potatoes to be a demonic item, despite the fact that its saved countless lives due to its hardiness and availability to the lower classes.

The Archbishop is ''very'' ObviouslyEvil to the readers, although he's better at hiding it in-universe. Both the Hero and Royal Prince Marshal can see through him, though.



* MagicalLibrary: The Demon Queen's clan apparently are native to the External Library that holds knowledge from worlds gone and yet to come.

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: The Demon Queen, for starters. As the leader of the Lakeside Convent, Lady Knight is this as well. The leaders of the Southern Triad (sans, obviously, the White Knight King who was left out) and later the Southern Union are this.
** Royal Prince Marshal himself is, despite being the younger brother of the Holy King and a leader of the Holy Key Expedition, an AntiVillain, stating to Big Sis Maid that he couldn't back down because the Holy Kingdom has the duty to maintain order and the Central Kingdoms' peace of mind. However, with a little more persuasion from Hero, he ultimately agrees on negotiations over bloodshed. At the end, he's also the one who [[spoiler:agrees to a ceasefire and peace treaty after Big Sis Maid brings the Ball of Light, which is the Church's Holy Relic they've been seeking.]]



* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: The leaders of the Southern Nations are not afraid to get hands on with improving their nations and gaining economic independence from Central.

** Royal Prince Marshal gives one to the people of Central in order to raise an enormous force for the Holy Key Expedition.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: The leaders of the Southern Nations are not afraid to get hands on with improving their nations and gaining economic independence from Central. On Central's side, they have the Blue Ash King and Royal Prince Marshal, both of whom personally go on, first, the unsuccessful war on the Southern Triad, and later, the more successful Holy Key Expedition.



* SaintlyChurch: The Lakeside Convent functions as one, or at least it does while Lady Knight is the prioress. They have all but emptied their coffers bringing education and the potato crop to the Southern Triad through building covents.

** It's pretty clear that the discord in the Holy Key Expedition is partially a result of this, as well as the clash between Royal Prince Marshal and the Archbishop's ideas over what the war is about. The nobles in the army see the serfs as idiots, and the Archbishop makes no effort in having an actual strategy, since all he wants is to capture Gateway City [[spoiler:and TakeOverTheWorld.]] It's up to Royal Prince Marshal, his Chief Strategist, and the Blue Ash King to devise plans to actually keep the expedition going.



* ToWinWithoutFighting: Demon Queen admits this may be impossible, given that they are up against {{Proud Warrior Race}}s and noblemen who think WeHaveReserves, but they must try. Hero manages to [[spoiler: free Gateway City from the Crusaders]] this way, at least
* TranslationStyleChoices: So many, the characters have titles as names, with some having more than one way of reading it, and therefore more than one way of translating it; although the most prominent is the Demon Queen's japanese name, Maou (魔王) which can either mean ''Demon King'', ''Demon Lord'', ''Devil King'' or ''Devil'', leaving no room for a feminine reading of the title; still most of the fandom/translators call her ''Demon Queen'' or ''Dark Lady'', while others don't bother with translating and leave it as ''Maou''.

* UnspokenPlanGuarantee: Played straight in the [[spoiler:defense of Gateway City. The defenders lay out their strategy to defend the city and weaken the army's numbers to the audience, which takes the form of a saturation attack. Guess what the enemy was ''exactly'' prepared for, having foreseen this. Needless to say, around half of the city's defenders are slaughtered, and the only reason the attackers weren't able to press further was because of surprise reinforcements from Demon Queen and the Beast Clan forces from the Human Realm.]]


Added DiffLines:

** Big Sis Maid (now known as "Scholar" or, by her own statement, "Hero") and Royal Prince Marshal do this, twice. [[spoiler:Big Sis Maid wins both times.]]


Added DiffLines:

** During the battle between [[spoiler:the Blue Demons and the Southern Triad, Central's Holy Key Expedition arrives... and proceeds to decimate ''both'' armies with their new guns.]] Needless to say, the main characters are absolutely horrified by the devastation.

* DecapitatedArmy: Discussed [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructively]] -- As the Demon Queen points out, a war will not truly end just because the authority figure on one side is killed. His/her killer would be an '''''[[ProfessionalKiller assassin,]]''''' not a '''''[[TheParagon hero]]''''', and such an action is rendered moot if he/she is easily replaceable.
