Added DiffLines:

* ReflectionlessUselessEyes: Nova eyes, if they have humanoid eyes at all, glow so much that they overwhelm the light reflection. Pandoras get the same eyes if the Nova tissue in their body affects them too much.

* ArtisticLicenseMilitary: West Genetics is stated to be a military academy, but there are a number of issues about how it functions that completely ignore military protocols. Unsanctioned fighting between Pandora occurs constantly, but there is little or no administrative regulation of this behavior, leaving it mostly to the students to resolve between themselves with rare faculty intervention. General regulations of military organizations are non-existent outside of actual combat situations, so third-years are allowed to treat their juniors very cruelly and without proper justification for their actions, and discipline is lax.

She tries to smother him with a pillow, and is killed by her own daughter]].

After Chevalier's actions are directly responsible for triggering a Nova clash, twice, and Gengo Aoi '''peacefully''' withdraws, taking his research with him to work on his own project, Valkyrie, they commission Raddox Phantomine to kill him and "legally inherit" both Gengo's research, and the Legendary Pandora, [[spoiler: Gengo's own daughters]]! The fact that his preferred method for doing so is utilizing four psychotically murderous Pandora equipped with experimental Stigma that even Raddox doesn't fully understand is irrelevant. [[spoiler: And after the attempt not only fails but triggers another clash, this time with '''five''' Nova simultaneously, the Chevalier puts Raddox in charge, and calls Gengo a traitor for forming his own group (in their view putting himself in a position where he could declare war on the world).]]

* DisproportionateRetribution: The third year students are experts at dishing this out, mostly for the purpose of SerialEscalation levels of ego tripping. For what they consider "disrespect" and "insubordination" on Satellizer's part, they had one of their toughest members try to beat Satellizer back into compliance. When that didn't work, Attia, one of the third years, tricked Lana into fighting with Satellizer, and had two reinforcements on standby to tag team her just in case she beat Lana. Satellizer brought this whole vendetta on by defending herself and Kazuya from being assaulted by a group of third years. At least some of the extremely violent retribution Pandora are known for comes about due to influence from the Nova, as well as the knowledge that most physical damage means little to Pandora.

* WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong?: In the Busters arc, disgraced military commander Raddox recruits and equips a group of four former Pandora to assassinate Gengo Aoi. There are three main issues with this group: they're all violent psychopaths who have killed at least one person (and two of them could qualify as serial killers), they've been given highly-experimental and extremely dangerous military technology to compete with Gengo's larger and all-around superior army, and they have permission to kill whoever they want/have to for the sake of completing the mission. To say that things go off the rails is a gross understatement.

** [[spoiler: It is eventually revealed that all Pandora are vulnerable to this. Because Stigmata come from Nova tissue, the more powerful a Pandora becomes the more their minds are connected to the "Transcendent Will" the Novas emanate. Said "will" has one overriding command, to kill every human being they encounter. Knowing this, it is little surprise that many Pandora display AxCrazy tendencies, though they usually can keep themselves from going utterly insane. Those few who have managed to have their powers "transcend" appear to be immune to the Nova's call for destruction.]]

* RivalScienceTeams: In creating the Pandoras, there is the work of Dr. Gengo Aoi, who was the first to make Pandoras as they are today and the E-Pandora Project led by Dr. Oohara. The big difference between them is Dr. Aoi used only girls who could naturally handle stigmata. Dr. Oohara wants to make any human capable, not matter the risk. It becomes a bit messier when Amelia finds out that the E-Pandora program was actually just a facade to buy time for Oohara's Maria-cloning project.

** When Raddox Phatomime sees an army of Nova show up between him and West Genetics, he is terrified at first, until he sees them merely holding their position, so he orders his Pandora to prepare for an attack on West Genetics anyway, figuring the Nova won't bother him and his army unless directly attacked, and even then believes his "plasma stigmata" could easily handle them if need be... Unfortunately, his aggressive actions draw the Nova's attention, and they start tearing through his army like the Pandora are all MadeOfPlasticine.

* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Chiffon Fairchild basically embodies this trope, pulling it off repeatedly over the course of the series. At first, she's just the somewhat-goofy EyesAlwaysShut Student Council President who, in defiance of [[AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil the usual tropes]], is entirely incapable of keeping her peers under control--she's clearly just as terrified of Satellizer as everyone else. Then, several episodes later, she steps in to stop a fight and casually KOs an (admittedly somewhat battered) third-year while quietly menacing the rest into retreating, and we find out that she's actually the 1st-ranked third-year in the school. Then, during the E-Pandora arc, we learn that she's not just the best in that particular school--she's considered the strongest Pandora outside of Chevallier itself, respected by the rest of the 'Top Five' Pandoras. At the same time, however, she displays an attitude of [[MyCountryRightOrWrong Chevallier, Right or Wrong]], accepting them as NecessarilyEvil '[[TheNeedsOfTheMany for the greater good of humanity]]' while the heroes rebel against their [[PlayingWithSyringes inhuman experiments]]... only to completely steal the spotlight from Sattelizer and her friends, revealing herself as a 'True Pandora' with incredible powers, turning into a MessianicArchetype and sacrificing herself to stop the total destruction of the Alaska base and neveryone in it.
