* PragmaticVillainy: Like all the Yamiko, Cobalt's a sociopath. However, he's also obsessed with getting things done in the most efficient manner possible, which means he has no time for rape, random murder, or any of the other typical Yamiko pursuits.

Take a basic MagicalGirl template, influenced most of all by ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' (note the title). Infuse some ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', mix in the tone and atmosphere of ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'', and add some of the self-awareness of ''Franchise/{{Scream}}'' on top. What do you get? ''Sailor Nothing'', a WebOriginal written by Creator/{{Twoflower}} and a ''very'' scary magical girl story, not unlike ''Manga/ElfenLied''. It also predates some other takes like ''Anime/FutariWaPrettyCure'' and ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' (but not ''Anime/ShamanicPrincess''), being written in 2000 and 2001.

* SpiritualSuccessor: Though it probably didn't inspire PuellaMagiMadokaMagica, the feel's the same. More straightforwardly, it's one of the main inspirations for ''TabletopGame/PrincessTheHopeful'. [[ArcWords Exhaustion is its stated 'mood']].
