* AddedAlliterativeAppeal: Arthur August[[SpellMyNameWithAnS (e/o)]] Angel.



* [[AllMythsAreTrue All Religions Are True]]: The series mostly focus on Christianity, mainly [[AnimeCatholicism Roman Catholicism]], but there have been demons inspired by Shintoism, [[WordsCanBreakMyBones Fatal Verses]] from Buddhist sutras (at least Zen Buddhism anyways), even Greco-Roman minor deities.

* CurbStompBattle: Not as obvious in the manga, but the anime version of [[spoiler:Rin with his sword drawn vs. Amaimon]] is a huge one in the former's favor. You can clearly see how the latter went from stomping the entire cast to barely keeping up the defensive. Also overlaps with NoHoldsBarredBeatdown. [[spoiler: In the manga: Rin vs. Amaimon in Gehenna was also heavily in Amaimon's favor. Mephisto arranged this so Rin would know that if he couldn't touch the seventh-toughest demon in hell he had no chance of going against their daddy.]]
** ''Shiemi'' of all people, delivers one to her [[spoiler: chimera zombie]] in Chapter 58.

* HighSchool: The first episodes/chapters open up ''epically'' as Father Fujimoto Shirou tries to defend his adoptive boys from ''Satan himself''. You are guaranteed to be hooked by the story's grand premise. Afterwards however, the ever-prevalent [[CulturalStereotypes stereotyping of Japanese schools]] kicks in, where Rin spends the majority of the plot thereafter [[ToBeAMaster trying to become an exorcist]]. Its not until the finale where things start to pick up again, [[spoiler: revealing Satan's [[NotEvilJustMisunderstood true nature]] which is in sharp contrast to how unspeakably evil the opening would have you to believe]].

You are guaranteed to be hooked by the story's True Cross Academy is a rather grand premise. Afterwards however, one, looking rather like a giant castle. It's also secretly the ever-prevalent [[CulturalStereotypes stereotyping of Japanese schools]] kicks in, where Rin spends headquarters for the Exorcists, though most of the students at the school are completely unaffiliated with them, most not even being aware of the existence of demons. Interestingly, we rarely see any of the actual school going ons, the majority of the plot thereafter [[ToBeAMaster trying to become an exorcist]]. Its not until time shown is just the finale where things start to pick up again, [[spoiler: revealing Satan's [[NotEvilJustMisunderstood true nature]] which is in sharp contrast to how unspeakably evil the opening would have you to believe]]. exorcist "cram school" class.

** In chapter 98, [[spoiler:after Rin's sword breaks and his demonic power housed in it floods back to his body, he is incinerated by it, leaving a charred husk that falls apart when it falls over. He gets better physically a few moments later when his demon heart returns to his body and reforms it though. Mentally though...]]

** Early on while Yukio and Shura are talking during their competition in the batting cage, Shura talks about how suppressing your anger and negative emotions is a bad trait for an exorcist to have as it makes them more vulnerable possession. [[spoiler:Ironically, she says Rin makes for good exorcist material in that regard, as much later in the story after Rin's sword is broken and his demon heart returns to his body, he becomes possessed by a manifestation of all his suppressed anger.]]
