* AttackItsWeakPoint: As Aragami are only tiny little seeds possessing host bodies, the seeds have to be destroyed in order to actually kill the thing for good.
* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: Aragami tend to make giant versions of their host for their attacks. This includes insects, a GiantSpider, mutated trees, jellyfish and more.



* LamePunReaction: Most of the TAC groans or even vacates the room from Kunikida's puns, though at least one got an ActuallyPrettyFunny response from them.



* TheRival:
** Kusanagi and Murakumo, both acting as protector to their chosen person. It takes until the final episodes before Kusanagi is strong enough to finally give Murakumo a run for this money. Before then, he could barely land a hit.
** Yaegashi thinks he's this to Kusanagi for Momiji.



* SpoilerOpening

to:

* SpoilerOpeningSoulJar: The mitama, which are essentially the physical form of the Aragami and house their spirits.
* SpoilerOpening: [[spoiler:If Kaede is supposed to be dead, why does she keep showing up in the opening credits?]]


Added DiffLines:

* TitleDrop: The term "blue seed" is used to refer to the Aragami's physical form for a few episodes before the term "mitama" becomes commonplace.

* HunterOfHisOwnKind: Kusanagi and Murakumo, though in the case of the later, it's dealing with rouge MonsterOfTheWeek types going against the master plan.



* OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent: Momiji

to:

* OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent: MomijiMomiji.



* PunchCatch: Murakumo pulls this on Kusanagi in episode 12.



* RealTrailerFakeMovie: One of the Omake shorts makes the series look like a {{Toku}} {{Kaiju}} film. The English dub even has [[SoBadItsGood intentional crappy voice acting and timing]].

* SacredFirstKiss

to:

* SacredFirstKissSacredFirstKiss: Kusanagi once had to revive Momiji with CPR. She spends the episode fretting if it counted as this or not.



* ShouldersOfDoom: Apparently, going all out with mitama powers gives you really big shoulder armor.



* SmallGirlBigGun: Koume

to:

* SmallGirlBigGun: KoumeKoume. Momiji also isn't afraid to fire a rocket launcher as needed.



* WhamEpisode: [[spoiler:Episode 13. Momiji comes to accept that she's in love with Kusanagi. Also, Kaede is revealed to be alive and having joined the Aragami.]]

* BedsheetLadder: Momiji uses one in episode 3 when she thinks she needs to make a break for it from Kunikida's place.



* HeadDesk: Done twice by Momiji by accident in episodes 3 and 4 as a result of bowing too deeply. The first time is on an actual desk, the second on the barrel of a bazooka where she knocks herself silly.



* ImprobableAge: Kunikida is in his 40s, Matsudaira is 32, and Kusanagi is 18

to:

* ImprobableAge: Kunikida is in his 40s, Matsudaira is 32, and Kusanagi is 1818.



* MysteriousProtector: Kusanagi
* NoDressCode: Outfits in the office run the gamut

to:

* MysteriousProtector: Kusanagi
Kusanagi, at least after the first two episodes when he comes to accept that killing Momiji is something he just can't do.
* NoDressCode: Outfits in the office run the gamutgamut from reasonable suit and tie to Koume's pink jumpsuit.


Added DiffLines:

* OffscreenVillainDarkMatter: Normally not a concern of the Aragami, but episode 7 revolved around their attempts to gain more of the special ceramic needed to nullify Momiji's powers.


Added DiffLines:

* RecklessGunUsage: Yaegashi's first time with a rocket launcher. He can't find the safety and ends up doing the old "peer down the barrel" bit. It's something when Momiji is able to use it better than he can.


Added DiffLines:

* WhamEpisode: [[spoiler:Episode 13. Momiji comes to accept that she's in love with Kusanagi. Also, Kaede is revealed to be alive and having joined the Aragami.]]

* BadassNormal: Sawaguchi Koume. Her philosophy can be boiled down to "[[MoreDakka Bigger Gun]]."

* TheBechdelTest: Passes with flying colors. More than half of the TAC is made up of women, and interestingly enough if Momiji isn't in the room the conversation almost never turns to men.
