** Louise's nickname ''Louise The Zero'' is translated literally in Spanish as ''Louise La Zero''. While the nickname has lots of sense in both Japanese and English, in Spanish sounds extremely dumb, not to mention the official dub spells ''Zero'' as such, when the correct Spanish spelling is ''Cero''. A better translation or adaptation should be ''Louise La Maga Cero'' (Louise the Zero Mage) or similar ones. The Mexican dub, on the other hand, translates her nickname as ''Louise La Inutil'' (Louise The Worthless), albeit [[LostInTranslation somewhat ruins the name of the series, who is named after her]]
** Kirche's title ''Kirche The Bronze'' since it's translated literally as ''Kirche El Bronce''.[[note]]The Spanish article ''El'' refers to a ''male'' person.[[/note]] A better adaptation should be ''Kirche La Maga de Bronce'' (Kirche The Bronze Mage, as she's dark-skinned). The Mexican dub gives her the punnier nickname of ''Kirche La Ardiente'' (Kirche The Burning One, albeit ''ardiente'' can be translated as both ''burning/hot'' and also ''horny/sensual woman'')

* FantasyCounterpartCulture: The countries have seventeenth century Europe counterparts and most of the characters' names are either actual historical names or famous fictional character names from where ''Zero no Tsukaima'' draws a lot of its inspiration from, TheThreeMusketeers. So much that it is definitely a case of ShownTheirWork.

*** Queen Henrietta of Tristain is [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henrietta_of_England Henriette Anne Stuart of England]], cousin (and [[KissingCousins mistress]]) of UsefulNotes/LouisXIV, and wife of his brother, Philippe of France ([[CampGay who was ''busy'' with]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armand_de_Gramont,_Comte_de_Guiche Armand de Gramont, Comte de Guiche]]). Her maidservant was [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louise_de_La_Valli%C3%A8re Louise de La Baume Le Blanc, Duchesse de la Valière]] (''also'' King Louis' mistress; the real Guiche was, prior to this, trying to get into her pants too, but Louis was more... persuasive). In the same vein, Louise de la Vallière is also one of the main characters in AlexandreDumas's novel ''The Vicomte de Bragelonne'', the final novel of TheThreeMusketeers trilogy, which makes central to the plot her affair with UsefulNotes/LouisXIV, while she is the fiancée of the fictional titular character, who is the son of musketeer Athos.
*** Armand de Gramont, Comte de Guiche, is, of course, Guiche de Gramond, and was [[TheCasanova just as a playboy as Guiche]], although better at it. He is also in TheThreeMusketeers, where he is portrayed as the closest friend of Raoul, son of the musketeer Athos.

* ThemeNaming: In this case, it involves swords: Saito's talking sword is ''Derflinger'' while the display sword was said to have been made by a ''Count'' Spee. Derflinger was a WWI German Battlecruiser (named for a 30 Years War General), while ''Graf (Count) Spee'' would be a WWI German Admiral or the WWII ''pocket battleship'' named for him..
