* TheMovingExperience: One chapter of the manga had Sentaro announce that his family was moving to another prefecture, forcing Skuld to confront her feelings for him before he leaves. [[spoiler:Then it turned out that Nekomi is right on the prefecture border, and his new home is right on the other side of the same border, so he's still close enough that he can bike over and visit on occasion.]]

** The original (flipped) English version of the manga was rated "Ages 8 and up", whereas the (unflipped) edition is rated "13+". There are only three considerable differences between the two – The format, the number of references to Japanese culture (the right-to-left version has more, plus some honorifics) and the crudeness of the wording… [[UnfortunateImplications If anything, the original was more crude than the newer versions]].

* WhatTheHellHero: In the anime, when the bug infestation was intensifying due to Belldandy and Keiichi being together. Skuld unsympathetically tells Keiichi that it is for the good of the world if he were not not see Belldandy anymore. Sure she says this, but she also [[JerkWithAHeartOfJerk uses it as an excuse to break them up and bring Belldandy home]]. Urd angrily calls Skuld out on her childish selfishness, saying she doesn't seem to care if Belldandy will be miserable for the rest of her life, just as long as Skuld herself is happy. From one line, Urd effectively pointed out that despite being a scientific genius, Skuld is a stupid idiot when it comes to people's feelings.

* OurDemonsAreDifferent: They're the native denizens of hell, acting more like {{another dimension}} than an afterlife-{{Hell}}, and as such aren't evil outright. Their {{facial markings}} are either red or purple, instead of heaven's blue.

From there, Keiichi and Belldandy enter into a very sweet, very low-key romance, but then Belldandy's sultry elder sister Urd (the Norn of the Past) shows up, irritated because they haven't moved faster and into more advanced levels of intimacy. Then their kid sister Skuld (the Norn of the Future) appears, convinced that Keiichi is no good for her big sister and seeking to sabotage the relationship. Matters are further complicated by Keiichi's sister Megumi (who in the grand tradition of ''Series/{{Bewitched}}'' knows nothing about the supernatural nature of the sisters); the demoness Mara, who has a grudge against the goddesses; and a large cast of additional supporting characters from Heaven, Hell, and the student body of the Nekomi Institute of Technology, where Keiichi attends classes.

** Keiichi, especially during the Angel Eater Arc. [[spoiler:He bore Lind's angel and kicked ass despite NOT being a god. Apparently, his pureness of heart, which is needed to bear an angel, was at god level even though he was an ordinary mortal. Also, he's loved by four (thereafter, five) goddesses, which helped too.]]

* {{Badass}}: All the goddesses and demons get a chance to display this, with Lind being the straightest example.



* DynamicEntry: Hild is on the receiving end of one of these a couple of times. Usually done by a goddess, from orbit and with the speed of light. [[{{Badass}} She always parries them with ease tough.]]

Beginning serialization in November 1988, ''Ah! My Goddess'' (or ''Oh My Goddess!'' depending on which part of the franchise it is) combines the finest elements of America's 1960's [[FantasticComedy "supernatural sitcoms"]] with a tender and sweet love story… and no small amount of both lighthearted slapstick comedy and intense drama. True to its roots, the series has a noticeably subdued use of {{Fanservice}} compared to other BishoujoSeries. The innocent nature of the series make it receivable to a much wider audience (particularly a younger audience) than regular Seinen. It was also the first exposure many anime fans in the West had to the YamatoNadeshiko archetype.

* VillainDecay:
** Mara gets hit by this in both the manga and TV series, but ''especially'' the latter. When she first appeared in the first season, she was able to give both Belldandy and Urd a hard time by herself, turning Keiichi into a scooter out of spite, and nearly succeeding at defeating Bell once and for all by using Sayoko's jealousy and ego to her advantage.\\\
Fast forward a bit, and she's working at the convenience store Keiichi and Bell used to work at (they gave her the job) and surviving on its takeout while living in a run-down building (an abandoned arcade in the manga), sleeping alongside her rat scientists.\\\
She's no longer able to even get into Tariki-Hongan Temple because Banpei guards it and can easily dispatch her. Urd even points out how big a failure Mara is, causing her to break down and cry.
** Welsper is an intentional example. After nearly destroying the universe during the "Demon Child" arc, he is forcibly reincarnated as a cat and retains only a fraction of his powers. From that point on, he's more an annoyance than any real threat.

* LongRunner: Ran for nearly 26 years in Japan. The English version produced by Dark Horse Comics, which debuted in 1994 and concluded its initial run at the end of 2015, is their second-longest-running comic (''ComicBook/UsagiYojimbo'' is the longest), and is America's longest-running manga, '''period'''. [[note]] The previous record-holder was ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'', which was published continuously from 1992-2006. Since then, ''Manga/BladeOfTheImmortal'' has also surpassed ''Ranma'' with an 18-year English run (1996-2014).[[/note]]
