* 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.

* ShipTease: In the anime, after leaving Kurono's home when the two have a falling out, Kishimoto seemingly returns as she has nowhere else to go, a fact that deeply upsets her. She begins crying into Kurono's chest and...the next scene shows them having sex. However, it is then revealed this was all part of a dream Kurono had and it ends when they climax. In the manga, it was made clear from the get go that Kurono was merely dreaming about her, but in the anime the scene is only revealed to have been a dream afterwards.
