* KatanasAreJustBetter: The vampires are capable of creating/pulling from the hand various human weapons, but when a ''serious'' fight kicks in, katana seem to be the only effective one. High tech katanas are also part of the Gantz arsenal, and they remain useful even in the most recent chapters, when [[spoiler: they can cut through aliens that guns cannot harm]].

Zig Zagged in the Italy arc when Kei and Katuo both break their katanas on a pair of alien statues.

Right. Imagine the bastard offspring of the wanton gore and nudity from the 1990s [=OVA=]s with ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''[='=]s disturbing nature and outright insanity. [[ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs Put that on crack and toss it in a septic tank]]. Finally, throw some heavy [[HumansAreFlawed social]] [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone commentary]] in to justify it all. That's ''GANTZ''.

* TheObiWan: Several. Nishi subverts it, displaying open hostility to the team and only divulging information when pressed. Kato is one to Kurono, changing him from a JerkAss to MessianicArchetype. [[spoiler:Kato gets a StoryArc [[ADayInTheLimelight In The Limelight]] when Kurono revives him later on]]. Inverted at first with Sakurai and Sakata [[spoiler:in that [[TheMentor Sakata]] survives while Sakurai dies]], but played straight when [[spoiler:Sakata revives Sakurai and pulls a HeroicSacrifice]].

* BilingualBonus: Far more than being only bilingual, in later chapters there are characters who speak in German, Italian, Portuguese, various Asian character-based languages, and possibly more than this troper can currently remember, usually without a provided translation. A reader would either have to understand the language or look up what is being said through a translation

* BilingualBonus: Far more than being only bilingual, "bi"lingual, in later chapters there are characters who speak in German, Italian, Portuguese, various Asian character-based languages, and possibly more than this troper can currently remember, usually without a provided translation. A reader would either have to understand the language or look up what is being said through a translationtranslation book or software, and even then you're usually only getting a rough, literal translation, which is often disjointed and awkward.

* {{Tsundere}}: Nishi in the Gantz [=PS2=] game if you follow his route. He even says something along the lines of "Don't get the wrong idea; I didn't come here to help you" during one event. This is mind-meltingly weird for anyone who's familiar with the {{Jerkass}} Nishi from the manga and anime, to say the least.

* [[spoiler:ResetButtonEnding]]: Crossed with allusions to Messianic finale. [[spoiler:Kurono]] finishes Gantz' mission and is awarded full points, giving him the power to undo everything bad while all of the good guys manage to retain their character development. The catch, [[spoiler:Kurono]] must sacrifice his own future and be imprisoned forever.
