* RagsToRoyalty: [[spoiler:Depending on how you look at it, Tabitha might qualify as either a Snow White or Goose Girl style version as she's actually Charlotte Helene Orléans, the rightful heir to the Gallian throne but was denied her position after her father got murdered during a duel with his own brother and her mother became mad after drinking a potent poison actually meant for Tabitha. She was then sent to Tristain to keep her out of the way and adopted the alias Tabitha, the name of a doll given to her by her mother. The conspirators then arranged for her to become a knight so they could use her magical talent as an excuse to send her on dangerous missions]].

* ThanksForTheMammaries: Saito's done this a couple of times, although usually while he's asleep or very shortly after waking up. He's also tried doing it to Louise, who's often [[ACupAngst not happy]] with it. With the introcution of Tiffania, it becomes a recurring gag. One example of this is when she asks Saito to check if her chest is real by touching them.

* BolivianArmyEnding: Both Volume 2 and 7 end with a variation of this, though the ones at the receiving end are not the main characters. In Volume 2, the Albionian Royalists’ glorious last stand [[spoiler: got most of the wind knocked out of it after Prince Wales’ assassination, so they ended up getting ignobly massacred]]. Volume 7 closes with Cromwell, [[BaitAndSwitchBoss up to then the main antagonist]], cheerfully greeting the “reinforcements” from the Gallian airship armada… [[spoiler: only to be bombarded and killed along the rest of the Reconquista army.]]

* IHaveToGoIronMyDog: When Montmorency wears the sailor uniform to class, Saito evades Louise's questioning by claiming that he has to feed the pigeons.



** Played straight in Volume 9, when Henrietta calls Saito from amongst the Ondine Knights.



* {{Joshikousei}}: In one of the light novels, Saito has a seifuku made and persuades Siesta to wear it. Guiche and Malicorn loudly express outrage at how "indecent" it looks (compared to the Academy uniforms?), but they're clearly fascinated - and then Guiche asks where '''he''' can get one, implying he's going to try and talk Montmorency into wearing it ... in private.

* CavalryBetrayal: The end of Volume 7, in which [[spoiler:the Gallian navy show up to "greet" Cromwell shortly after the allied fleet leaves -- said greeting taking the form of thousands of cannonballs fired at the base where Cromwell is.]]

* FantasticMeasurementSystem: Mages are ranked as either "Dots", "Lines", "Triangles" or "Squares" in terms of how powerful they are, which references the four elements of magic. It's a little unclear if this directly measures power, covers how many of the four elements a mage can access (dots only one, lines two, and triangles three and four respectively), or both

* TooDumbToLive: An aversion. [[spoiler: Tabitha's mother and Tabitha herself were at a formal event (a ball?) and Tabitha was offered a drink. Being a noble, protocol meant that refusing the drink was an act of rudeness, and the assasin was taking advantage of it. Tabitha's mother managed to get wind of it and took the drink herself, so it's actually a case of HeroicSacrifice. Perhaps she could have averted it by say knocking the drink over and spilling it, making it look like an accident, but possibly tarnishing their image in the process.]]

* TrappedInAnotherWorld - Saito is trappede in Louise's world. In the novels, one of his main motivations is getting back to his own world. [[spoiler: He managed to find a possible way back to Earth, via a Void-based portal spell. By then however, he became too attached to Halkeginia and decided not to leave. At least for now.]]

** It's used once in Volume 2 and again in Volume 11. The purpose of the ability is to notify Gandalfr whenever his master is in danger he wouldn't otherwise know about. The first time it was used was when [[spoiler: Wardes turned traitor and tried to kill Louise.]] The second time was when [[spoiler: the golem Jörmungand ambushed Louise and his fellow Knights of Ondine]] on their way out of Albion. Both times it notified Saito of his master's peril so he could come to the rescue. Unfortunately there are a whole bunch of other times where it would have come in handy but is just never mentioned, so this trope is usually in effect.
