'''A note on timelines:''' The manga's events begin two weeks before the ''Index'' novel and anime. The anime, however, violates this by adapting events from Volume 8 of the novels into the anime's first episode. As it stands, Chapters 18 to 39 occur around the time of Volume 3 in the novels, Chapter 40 is around Volume 5, Chapters 41-42 and around volume 8 and Chapters 43-current take place around Volume 9.

** This can also be applied to Touma, who is literally the hero of the ''other' story. Most of the time he will show up just [[WheresWaldo walking in the background]], and a few times he encourages Misaka, or points out how [[SelfSacrificeScheme stupid she's being]], there are [[ChronicHeroSyndrome occasions]] when he becomes TheCavalry and saves her from various threats, ranging from [[spoiler:exploding balls of aluminum]], or just the [[StalkerWithACrush son]] of the head of her school. She hasn't the slightest idea that he actually gets into life or death situations like the Sisters arc all the time.

* ACupAngst: Mikoto is ''very'' self conscious of the fact she is not as... "developed" as other girls her age, if not younger.

to:

* ACupAngst: Mikoto is ''very'' self conscious of the fact she is not as... "developed" as other girls her age, if not younger. A part of the Dream Ranker arc has Mikoto discover an Indian Poker card that is supposed to be the mythical "[[BreastExpansion Bust Upper]]", only to lose it.


Added DiffLines:

** During the Dream Ranker arc Frenda is seen window shopping, looking at a pocket watch in particular. [[spoiler:This is a nod to the fact that she bought a pocket watch as a birthday present for Shinka Kanou, who only only gets the present in the 12th New Testament Index novel.]]


Added DiffLines:

** The Dream Ranker arc brings in the dark side group Scavenger, who debuted in ''Manga/ACertainScientificAccelerator''.


Added DiffLines:

** A portion of the Dream Ranker arc is a prelude to the events of 15th ''Index'' novel, as Saten befriends Frenda and later runs afoul of of SCHOOL as [[spoiler:SCHOOL is hunting Indian Poker cards that contain information on the Tweezers.]]


Added DiffLines:

* TransferableMemory: The Dream Ranker arc revolves around Indian Poker cards, devices that contain recordings of people's dreams. The technology ends up being used to store classified information as well.

* Flanderization: The anime exaggerates some characters, most notably Kuroko Shirai. While she was an intentionally cliche schoolgirl lesbian character in both Index and the Railgun manga, she was also very capable of being serious, highly responsible and worried a great deal about Mikoto when she was in trouble. However, during either moments of padding or outright filler in the anime she tends to behave like a sexual predator who frequently tries and occasionally succeeds in molesting Mikoto. Fan reaction has been mixed with some preferring the zanier Kuroko from the anime and others preferring the more down to earth and responsible version from the manga and light novels.

** Anything from characters to plotlines in the Railgun manga/anime is canon in the main Index series as it was approved by the author of the novels. This include Saten who makes a cameo appearance in the novels and [[spoiler:Capacity Down is used on Accelerator in Volume 19 of the novels]]. This also counts in the Railgun manga, where anything added in the Railgun anime is treated as having happened in the manga. Including [[spoiler:Harumi's students being cured]].

* {{Filler}}: Because there were only 4 manga volumes of Railgun at that time, and the Sisters arc was still ongoing, filler episodes were created after the first arc in the Railgun anime to fill in its 24 episode slot.

The second season gets another filler arc because the manga was again in the middle of an arc. However, the anime arcs do seem to be retroactively canon. There are also more isolated moments of padding, such as an episode devoted to looking for clovers and an odd focus on the main girls wandering around eating random things and talking about girly things.
