* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: For all the insane things that happen in Nekomi, none of the locals seem to bat an eye. For instance, during the "Queen Sayoko" arc, when NIT is transformed into a whimsical castle, students and faculty outside it remark that it's about on par with that time the Engineering Club managed to put a bus on the roof… and then go back home satisfied that they get a day off.
** Averted with Banpei in Chapter 65 of the manga. He wanted to go shopping with Belldandy, Keiichi, and Skuld but the latter two didn't approve because they were afraid he'd attract unnecessary attention. What did Banpei do? Wear clone Urd's skin and Keiichi's clothes so that he can pass as a shorter version of Urd.

* UnwantedHarem: Keiichi definitely has one. However, not all the members of his harem are in love with him, and he'll '''''never''''' betray Belldandy (the only one who didn't show up uninvited). It's rather poignant, since basically anyone can barge into the temple at any point in time and abuse their welcome.

* WhamEpisode: Two of them in the manga, within a year of each other.
** Chapter 275. Belldandy, on the brink of death, decides to [[spoiler:ask Keiichi to cancel their contract. He agrees, at which point she gives him a BigDamnKiss. Turns out that she gave him the Kiss Of Truth, the implications of which are in the very next bullet point. Since the source of a goddess's power is love (and theirs had been functionally stagnant) unbinding Keiichi meant she could sense the ''entire'' depth of his feelings and recharge in an instant.]]
** Chapter 285. After more than twenty years of the status quo, everything is turned even more upside down than before. The fandom, which is normally completely laid back, erupted in chaos when the contents of this chapter were revealed. The wham was just that big. [[spoiler:Hild drops the bombshell. Turns out when Keiichi made his wish, Heaven hacked his brain to eliminate even the slightest possibility of him desiring Belldandy sexually. And Belldandy knew it the entire time. In fact, pretty much every celestial character except Skuld learned about it at some point prior to this. The ''reason'' she didn't object was because interspecies relationships are banned and defying the ban brings down the Gate Of Judgement.]]

* ThisAndThat: Used by Urd in the "instructional" video she gave Keiichi (in the English dub, it's "[[RuleOfThree this, that, and the other thing!]]") in TV Episode 8.

* SceneryPorn: Fujishima has made many detailed, awe-inspiring scenes of everything from Nekomi Tech festivals to Tariki-Hongan Temple (Keiichi and Belldandy's home), drawn in a fusion of art noveau and shoujo-manga style.

* RageAgainstTheHeavens: In TheMovie, Celestine, [[spoiler:though Belldandy talks him out of it.]]
* RealityEnsues: In Chapter 40 (Episode 14), [[TimTaylorTechnology Skuld upgrades the output on Keiichi's motorcycle to about 113%]]. Megumi was impressed, even as her big brother was horrified, but pointed out to Skuld the futility of said upgrade – the bike's chassis would not be able to withstand the extra power. Sure enough, once Keiichi (unwillingly) tested out his bike, it nearly sent him into orbit… then exploded. The manga goes into further detail: Skuld could, with difficulty, insert a turbo before the carburetor, but the breaks can't take it.



* RelationshipCeiling: Keiichi and Belldandy's relationship hit this point about a year or two in and then didn't really progress at all for over twenty years, until Bell was forced to change the status quo in Chapter 278 – [[spoiler:she had Keiichi terminate his contract and invoke a new one that effectively made them a married couple.]]
** Averted in the OVA continuity, where things progress rather quickly.

* OhCrap: Done by everyone (save the Almighty One) at least once.
** Hild gets a rapid series of these when [[http://img196.imageshack.us/img196/1578/hildohcrap1.jpg Belldandy]] [[http://img13.imageshack.us/img13/7600/hildohcrap2.jpg asks]] [[http://www.mangareader.net/161-10647-22/ah-my-goddess/chapter-180.html a favor]]. Her expression when she pops out from beneath the manhole cover is especially funny.

Her expression when she pops out from beneath the manhole cover is especially funny.



* OutOfOrder: Events in the TV series do not happen in the same order as in the manga. This is mostly because the first season was [[AdaptationDistillation meant to be self-contained, so it cut out and/or pushed back nearly everything that didn't directly advance Keiichi and Belldandy's romance]]. It also shifted and combined disparate chapters/arcs to make a more cohesive narrative. [[labelnote:Example]] Using Urd's angel as a lead-in to the Lord Of Terror arc, even though the former happened ''much'' later in the manga.[[/labelnote]]
** Lind appears in the TV series before Peorth… who actually debuted in the manga 7½ years earlier, and had already featured in ''three'' arcs by the time Lind is introduced.
** ''Flights Of Fancy'' is all over the place compared to the source material. This doesn't really matter for the episodic stories (which is most of them), but it's still confusing for anyone familiar with the manga. [[labelnote:A Rundown]] The timing of the Peorth and "Devil In Miss Urd" arcs are flipped between the manga and TV series – Peorth's arc followed the latter arc in the manga. Episode 29, the one about the ring, originally occurred ''very'' early in the manga (its chapter falling in between Episodes 9 and 10 of the TV series). Shiho, Chihiro, and Sentaro all have their spotlight episodes before Kodama (who actually appeared first). In the manga, Chihiro's introduction is in between those of Sentaro and Noble Scarlet, but she appears before either in the TV series… [[TropesAreNotBad which allows Skuld's meeting Sentaro to segue directly into her angel fiasco]]. The final episode uses material from then-recent chapters, even though every other story adapted to animation (Lind's and Hild's appearances aside) was from years earlier.[[/labelnote]]

* EvenEvilHasStandards:
** Hild wants to increase the demons' stock share on Earth, but she follows the agreement to never kill goddesses, though she did once show no problems beating up her own daughter, albeit non-lethally.
** Mara's own schemes sometimes makes her wonder if she's going too far, such as when she rigs Belldandy's goddess license to make her a demon instead, or when she splits Urd's demonic and goddess halves into two separate bodies. During the Lord of Terror arc, when Urd sets Fenrir loose on the city, Mara asks if she's maybe going "a little ''too'' far?"
* EverythingSoundsSexierInFrench: English manga translation only. Peorth – who in the original speaks extremely refined Japanese – peppers her speech with random French words and phrases. The intros in the Studio Proteus individual issues {{lampshade|d}} this, saying she "Occasionally speaks in French 'cause it sounds cool."

** And of course, the great ''Ah!'' vs. ''Oh...'' debate. This one was settled by [[WordOfGod Fujishima himself]]; according to TheOtherWiki, and a snippet in Volume 2 of the unflipped English version, the title was due to the way the Japanese put the accent on "Oh" instead of "God" when saying "Oh my God!" in English. So it's two titles for the price of one: a GratuitousEnglish StealthPun in Japan, and its rough English translation is a straight-up pun. A literal [[{{Pun}} Worldwide Punomenon]] -- Works out nicely.
