* RealityEnsues: Oda panics after he learns that Toyohisa is letting the dwarves eat their fill after being freed. Eating too much, too fast, and without enough fluids after being starved can be just as harmful and result in death.

* EasyLogistics: Averted. Various supplies and weapons have to be made before the Drifters and their nonhuman allies can be made, and during the attack that the Drifters launch to rescue the dwarves, Nobunaga (lightheartedly) laments the loss of so many weapons and armor suits that could have been useful to them, and talks about the usefulness of the crystal ball communicators that the Octobrists use. On the Ends side, this is even further averted, as because the Black King and the Ends are creating a whole civilization out of the less civilized demihumans in their ranks; they have to teach their troops to farm, how to read and write an alphabet, establishing an insignia for the kingdom, creating a religion based off of Vedic and Celtic fire-worship along with other influences, along with creating currency, and fostering a sense of national unity among the nonhumans so that the empire they're building won't collapse when the Black King inevitably dies.

* EasyLogistics: Averted. Various supplies and weapons have to be made before the Drifters and their nonhuman allies can be made, make use of them, and during even with the dwarves making matchlock muskets they only manage to make 100 in the span of a few weeks when there are at least a thousand troops under the command of the Drifters. During the attack that the Drifters launch to rescue the dwarves, Nobunaga (lightheartedly) laments the loss of so many weapons and armor suits that could have been useful to them, and talks about the usefulness of the crystal ball communicators that the Octobrists use.

* KickTheDog: Each side and character does it at least once: the Black King causes the Bronze Dragon to contract cancer, then has his army restrain it while cutting the growths off to make currency (with the process apparently agonizingly painful for the dragon). The Orte Empire has done this to the demihumans under their rule for the past forty years. Toyohisa does this after liberating the dwarves, demanding that the defeated Orta commander commit seppuku for surrendering the fortress, then calling him a coward and beheading him when the man understandably refuses.

* TheGoodKing: The Black King, despite his genocidal ambitions towards humanity, is this among his subjects. He cares for his soldiers greatly, walking among them himself to heal their wounds and wishing to know the casualties of a battle instead of dismissing them as inevitable. He even insults the Bronze Dragon, one of the most powerful entities of the world, as being equal to a starving goblin child in terms of importance to him.

* ValuesDissonance: The customs of Sengoku-era Japan and its samurai clash multiple times with the cultures of other Drifters and the civilizations in the world, such as when Toyohisa demands that the commander of a conquered castle commit seppuku as an honorable death, then beheading the man when he (justifiably) refuses.
