* IKnowYourTrueName: Clara Lanfranc has the Geass power to [[PeoplePuppets take control of peoples' bodies]] if she looks them in the eye and speaks their true name. [[spoiler:She tries using the power against "Oldrin", but it fails because it's actually Orpheus in disguise, and he's smart enough to kill her before she can give it a second chance.]]



* NotSoDifferent: Marybell's character is very similar to Lelouch from the original series: both lost family members to terror attacks, got coldly brushed off by the Emperor when they asked him to do something about it, and lost their claim to the throne. However, there they diverge is their reactions: Lelouch realized that Britannia was corrupt and wants to tear it down, while Marybell stayed loyal and dedicated her life to fighting terrorism. Both of them have the same end goal: Making the world a better place for the sake of their loved ones.

However, there they diverge is throne for their reactions: troubles[[/note]] and she has the same motivation (to make the world a place where her loved ones can be safe and happy). The main difference is how they reacted to their respective losses: Lelouch realized that suspected Britannia was corrupt of being complicit and wants to tear it down, became a terrorist, while Marybell stayed loyal to Britannia and dedicated her life to fighting terrorism. Both of them have formed an anti-terrorism taskforce. As a result, it's no surprise that [[spoiler:she willingly joins forces with Lelouch once he becomes Emperor and enacts the same end goal: Making the world a better place for the sake of their loved ones.Zero Requiem plan.]]

** Taking it a step further, the final chapters of the story introduce a Knight Giga Fortress named [[Literature/{{Wicked}} Elphaba]].


Added DiffLines:

* UnPerson: [[spoiler:Clara Lanfranc, the ''first'' person the Geass Directorate sent to spy on Lelouch while pretending to be his sibling, got erased from everyones' memories after Orpheus killed her and was subsequently replaced by Rolo Haliburton.]]
* UnprovokedPervertPayback: During the above-mentioned NotWhatItLooksLike scene, Oldrin accidentally lifts up Marybell's skirt while smacking the guys with her sword, giving everyone a nice look at her panties. When we return to the scene, Oldrin has a red slap mark on her cheek while the guys are lying on the ground behind her, having been beaten senseless. Since it's not really Mary's character, odds are Oldrin was the one who beat them.

* CallingYourAttacks: Despite being a RealRobot series, Oldrin and her crew have a tendency to shout out things like "Knight's Strike!" and "Sattel Waffen!" whenever they attack.



* HeroicBSOD: Sokkia, who had previously been a member of the KMF Leagues (think UsefulNotes/RollerDerby [[InstantAwesomeJustAddMecha with mecha]]), develops CSR (combat stress reaction) after seeing battle for the first time. As a result, her hands get shaky when she thinks about combat and for a while it's unclear if she'll retire from the Glinda Knights.



* InsecureLoveInterest: In one chapter, Leonhardt admits that he's considered breaking off his engagement to Marika because he doesn't feel worthy of her. He gets over it.



* LethalChef: Marika is known as one because she put too much pepper in a dish she made for Leonhart once.

to:

* LethalChef: Marika is known as one because one, but she insists it only happened ''once'' (she got nervous and put too much pepper in a dish she made for Leonhart once.meat pie).
* PropagandaPiece: InUniverse, it's shown that Britannia prints manga loosely based off Oldrin to serve as propaganda. Emphasis on "loosely": one story is your standard {{Shoujo}} fare with schoolgirl Oldrin pining after her sempai Leonhardt, while the other is a ShoutOut to ''Manga/TigerMask''. Both stories have the real Leonhardt in stitches.



* MomentKiller: In Chapter 6, there's a wonderful heartfelt moment between Leonhardt and Marika...which Tink gloriously destroys by saying "Oh hey, you're the fiancée who makes the super-spicy meat pies!", making both of them FaceFault.



* NotWhatItLooksLike: In one chapter, Leonhardt is having trouble getting into his pilot suit and Tink offers to help. Then the elevator doors open, and Oldrin sees Tink standing behind a half-dressed Leon, with his hands seemingly on the younger man's waist as the latter complains "It's not gonna fit!" She responds by whacking them with her (sheathed) sword.

However, there they diverge is their reactions: Lelouch realized that Britannia was corrupt and wants to tear it down, while Marybell stayed loyal and dedicated her life to fighting terrorism.

to:

* RoboticReveal: In Chapter 6, Tink sustains some heavy damage that reveals machinery on the left side of his body; he admits to Leo and Marika that over 30% of his body was replaced by cybernetics due to injuries sustained before he joined the Knights.
* ShoutOut: To The whole thing is full of references to ''Literature/TheWizardOfOz'', but ''Side: Oldrin'' even moreso. The '''Glinda''' Knights members are all parallels to Dorothy and her friends, and just to drive the WizardOfOz, of all things.point further home, in the prologue chapter Oldrin sings "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" to herself.


Added DiffLines:

* SuperPrototype: This series features Super Prototypes ''of'' Super Prototypes! Oldrin's Lancelot Grail is upgraded from the test-type version of Suzaku Kururugi's machine, while Orpheus's Byakuen was based off of the Guren Mk-I, and Leonhardt's Bradford is the prototype to the Tristan. Wizard's Agravain is said to be 79% identical to Lelouch's Gawain (and strongly resembles the mass-production Gareth from ''R2''), but their exact relation is unknown.
* SwissArmyWeapon: The Byakuen has an almost a literal example: its right arm is equipped with "Type 7 Integrated Armament", which means it has seven different weapons packed into its oversized forearm (including scissors, [[ThisIsADrill a drill]], and a long-range cannon) and can pop them out like tools from a Swiss army knife as needed.
