Add in the other villains who turn into antiheroes when defeated by Dark Schneider, and the amusement value of many of the spells and locations which are named after 80s metal bands (Dark Schneider himself was named after Udo Dirkschneider from Music/{{Accept}}, the country of JudasPriest, the samurai of the IronMaiden who are fighting to avenge King Harris, knights named {{Bon Jovi}}na and [[Music/{{Metallica}} Lars Ul Metallicana]], the extremely powerful spells Music/{{Exodus|Band}} and [[Music/{{Megadeth}} Megadeath]]...) and you get a romp. It's six episodes long, and only goes through the first three collections of the manga (which is currently up to volume 26), so it ends with a "hey, what now?" (Because of a potential blatantly ludicrous licensing fee to use them all, these names had to be all changed in the American release.) However, the manga has also been released in the US (with quite a good translation) up to volume 19 (Though at present, it seems Creator/VizMedia has [[OrphanedSeries abandoned]] the series).

* DestructiveSaviour: Dark Schneider, to a T. See WhatTheHellHero.



** [[PointyEars Pointy-eared]] adopted daughter Nei bares a resemblance to [[PointyEars pointy-eared]] adopted sister Nei of PhantasyStarII, which was released right around the time that Nei was introduced in Bastard!!.
** And vampire Count Dai Amon, who's a dead ringer for Music/KingDiamond.

* PunnyName: Dark Schneider, named after Udo Dirkschneider, a German heavy metal singer. Most definitely not a MeaningfulName - while "Schneider" does mean "tailor" in German, it's also a perfectly normal surname.

* RelaxOVision: The final two pages of Chapter 51 consist only of [[WallOfText Walls of Text]] describing the action with the speech bubbles superimposed, giving the scene this feel (probably because Hagiwara had to rush in delivering the chapter). The opening of the next chapter shows those two pages fully illustrated as they were supposed to be.
--> ''(part of the text in the last panel)'' Hagiwara, you dirty cheat! We want our money back!



** Of particular note, in a redrawn volume DS has put several characters from other series in his harem, including [[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya Haruhi, Mikuru]], [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Rider, and Tohsaka Rin]].
