Even after the [[spoiler:Elchean Federation is formed, merging multiple Exceeds under an alliance, the fear and hate still lingers.

-->'''Sora''': This world doesn't have any races that get along, does it?

** The Sirens are notorious for being stupid, such as with their poorly-thought-out arrangement with the Dhampirs.
-->'''Jibril''': The foolishness of Siren reaches the status of legend. Siren has become a synonym for fool in the idioms of every race’s language, and in fact, it is even used as a verb in some.

** Warbeasts are known to erase their losing opponents' memories of their game. An exception, however, was given to [[spoiler:Stephanie's grandfather, the previous King of Elchea. They assumed correctly that he had no hope of beating them, so they went easy on him to [HopeSpot fool him into thinking he'd have a chance of winning next time]], which allowed the Warbeasts to win more and more of his lands before he finally gave up in frustration. They also forced him to pledge to never share any details about the games with anyone else for as long as he lived. [[HoistByHisOwnPetard It ultimately comes back to bite their collective asses]], when it turned out he secretly committed his experiences to paper, then left the records for his successor to find -- then decreed that his successor would be decided by a contest, so the next ruler would be cunning enough to use this information to finally beat the Warbeasts. Which Sora does]].

* AManIsNotAVirgin: Averted -- Sora is one and this is among the first things the audience learns about him. He wants to change it, which is why he told Stephanie to fall in love with him.

* IAlwaysWantedToSayThat: "One of the things 『  』 loves best is saying 'no' to people who think they've got an absolute advantage" is the 4th one of Sora and Shiro's "things we always wanted to say" list and they were very excited over finally being able to use the Jojo's quote.

* InstantExpert: Shiro learns Imanity's language simply from reading a book of it in Episode 2. She says it was easy because the written word is identical to the spoken one.

* StopHavingFunGuys: A rare InUniverse case. Tet's commandments may have abolished violence, but as a side effect, games became treated much more seriously. They have now become the principal geopolitical tool of Disboard where even a single defeat can have serious consequences (so serious indeed that [[spoiler:after losing to Sora and Shiro, Izuna breaks down crying out of genuine fear for the Warbeasts' existence]]). As such, absolutely everyone is doing everything they can in order to win - from honing their intelligence and knowledge BeyondTheImpossible, to sacrificing a lot in order to succeed, to rampant cheating. In the final episode of the anime, Sora then mulls that in doing so all sixteen Exceeds are technically in violation of the Tenth Pledge - to actually derive fun and pleasure from the games. It may very well be that Sora and Shiro were summoned specifically to restore the spirit, and not just the letter of the laws.

* ExactWords: If a person or a party wins a game, the conditions of the game would be enforced to the letter. However, savvy players can find loopholes in the conditions, thus allowing them to act in ways that technically do not violate the conditions of a bet. Even when a game is being played, if there's no ''explicit'' rule about forbidding or limiting an action, then it can be done. Notable examples are

** Sora throwing a rock to drive a bird away to win a bet. The bet was to guess how long would it take before the said bird would fly away from its perch. Sora bet 3 seconds, counted to three, then threw the rock.
** Sora using scientific terms in the shiritori game, since the rules state ''any word'' can be used, which Jibril notes in the end, even included words non-native to Disboard.
** [[spoiler: Steph's grandfather recording the mechanics of the Warbeasts' game in a notebook. Since the Warbeasts didn't erase his memories, he was instead sworn to not ''tell anybody'' about the game ''for as long as he lived''. This was a double whammy against the warbeasts since, while not allowed to ''tell'' anybody about it, he was able to ''write'' it. And as Sora pointed out, the condition of the king's silence became void when he died because he was only forbidden ''for as long as he lived.'']]
