* 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.'']]
** [[spoiler: Miko moving the warbeasts assets out of the Elkian continent before the game between Imanity and the Warbeasts since the conditions only state that Imanity would get everything the warbeasts own ''within the continent.'']]

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy:
** Sora and Shiro are this in general, due to being CrazyPrepared and really good at playing against others.
** The Warbeasts, largely suspected to be cheaters, also try to be as prepared as they can as well during their match against the duo. So at the end of episode 10, when the players are entering the virtual world for the game, Sora and Shiro find out [[spoiler:that the setting is in outside Tokyo. Being {{Hikikomori}}, both Shiro and Sora are weak against being outside, and he immediately starts to apologize to Stephanie, saying they're definitely going to lose.]]
*** [[spoiler: The above case is actually a subversion. The setting resembling urban Tokyo was a complete coincidence and Sora and Shiro manage to pull themselves together by reminding themselves that it's just a game. However, this doesn't diminish the Warbeast's performance any bit, since not only is Izuna highly skilled at the game, but they've developed a way to cheat even though they're being watched by an audience, and their leader prepared for in case they lost by moving everything valuable on the land they were giving up to the homeland.]]

** 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, instead choosing to [[HopeSpot fool himself into thinking Imanity still has a fighting chance]], which would allow Warbeasts to hawk off more lands, while forcing him to pledge to keep shut over them 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, passed on to his successor -- who so happens to be the cunning Sora]].
** PlayedForLaughs in episode 11 when the Warbeast leader is explaining how the guns work in the game they're playing. When he tells them that getting hit by the bullet makes you a "love slave" to the person that shot you, Shiro immediately shoots Sora, who then turns lovey-dovey towards her. Jibril then shoots Shiro, causing the latter to fall for her, while Sora is rejected. A moment later they turn back to normal, with Shiror promising to punish Jibril later for that act, which causes the latter to get [[TooKinkyToTorture a little excited]] at that prospect.

Determined to protect their identity, the step-siblings play (and win) an online chess game (hotlinked onto the email) with this mysterious sender, culminating in the latter offering them a chance to be "reborn" into their "ideal" world. Before they can react, however, Shiro and Sora are summarily transported to the world of Disboard, ruled by an entity who identifies as "Tet", where violence is outlawed and where every dispute, trivial or serious, are settled with games.
