*** While the simple microphones make sense as Ciel and Sebastian use the basic concept behind the technology in an earlier chapter, the glowsticks have absolutely no explanation.

* {{Protectorate}}: Ciel's bumbling normal servants. A chef, apparently imported from America, who likes using heavy artillery on food, a {{dojikko}} maid, a napping steward, and a gardener who mixes up "weed killer" and "fertilizer". It takes all of the powers of Hell for Sebastian to prevent them from blowing the mansion up on a daily basis. Also, Elizabeth.

* {{Dojikko}}: The vice-principal of the boarding school Ciel goes to is [[RunningGag very prone of falling down the stairs]].
** [[spoiler:This becomes a bit of a FunnyAneurysmMoment when it is revealed that the vice-principal was one of the Undertaker's [[OurZombiesAreDifferent Bizarre Dolls]], and his poor coordination as well as his [[MajorInjuryUnderreaction mild reactions to injuries]] are because he was DeadAllAlong]].
** And Meyline. ESPECIALLY when Sebastian is around.

Added DiffLines:

* BewareTheNiceOnes: From the gentle and kindhearted gardener with superhuman strength to Queen Victorian, the prim and proper grandmother who casually orders assassinations and [[spoiler: frames Ciel for murder as a test]], the reader should assume that everyone has hidden superpowers or is a MagnificentBastard.

Added DiffLines:

** In both the anime and the manga, Soma is well-meaning but pretty self-centered when he comes to England, showing concern for others and for justice but rarely thinking about how others feel. After Sebastian and Ciel point this out to him he starts working on this and becomes easier to get along with as he gets more considerate.

* ExoticWeaponSupremacy: Inverted. [[spoiler:Undertaker]], who wields a SinisterScythe managed to effortlessly defeat three {{Improbable Weapon User}}s. Admittedly, a scythe is a pretty unique weapon on its own, but it's relatively common compared to his opponents' choices of [[spoiler: a chainsaw, a lawnmower and a set of silverwares]].

Added DiffLines:

* CharacterDevelopment: Mostly in the manga, not so much in the anime.
** All of the servants slowly become more competent; although Sebastian still doesn't let them handle anything important, he spends far less time cleaning up after their messes and all of them are shown competently helping out at the Green Witch Manor.
** Ciel gets walked through some development by Sebastian, who teases him for not doing enough for himself repeatedly until Ciel begins thinking up solutions to his own problems that don't involve demons being invincible and putting more personal effort into his work. He's still relying on Sebastian heavily, but you get the feeling that if he was left on his own he'd be able to get by at least.
*** Ciel also begins appreciating Sebastian and the servants a little bit, thanking them and caring about their opinions of him.
** Once Lizzy knows that Ciel doesn't think her "unfeminine" for being strong, she begins thinking on her own a little more, realizing that something is wrong with Ciel and [[spoiler: defecting to the Blue Cult for unknown reasons, but of her own free will.]]

** The Blue Cult arc ''shows'' that he's very skilled in the field of business, as he battles an enemy whose scheme revolves around the success of a specific music hall by [[spoiler: opening a music hall of his own and stealing all of his opponents customers.]]

** The Blue Cult arc ''shows'' that he's very skilled in the field of business, as he battles an enemy whose scheme revolves around the success of a specific music hall by [[spoiler: opening a music hall of his own and stealing all using shrewd business tactics to steal a significant number of customers from the target. Bonus because Ciel hadn't actually had any experience in the entertainment industry before[[note]]Which ''is'' a legitimate concern, as a previous product line of his opponents customers.almost collapsed because he didn't know how the specific industry he was branching out into worked[[/note]], but he applies his prior knowledge of advertising and Sebastian's knowledge of manipulation to make it a success anyways.]]

** One of the omake chapters has Sebastian drastically increase sales of a new Phantomhive product by getting an actress to advertise it in the middle of her play, tossing out sampler cards to the audience so that the audience is directly involved in even a small portion of the show. Almost immediately Ciel gets the actress to pose for ads that name drop the character she plays, aware that people like to buy things associated with celebrities. About 30-40 chapters later Ciel re-applies these lessons by making sure the Boyband he's backing (ItMakesSenseInContext) does a ''lot'' of AudienceParticipation and sells merchandise at the show, some of which can be used during the AudienceParticipation. He even gives the singers "characters" and "roles" similar to how he had the actress do the ads in costume.
