* GunsAreWorthless: Played straight and subverted. Alita defeats one of her biggest enemies with a small handgun and later uses guns to great effect. Last Order character Zazie, while good in unarmed combat, is at her best with her guns. However guns are also often useless. It seems to depend on the gun, ammo user and ''target'' - {{Hollywood Cyborg}}s are basically bipedal tanks.

* BadassBoast: The most epic one of the first series is delivered in the second-last chapter by Desty Nova, among all people, even if it can arguably be appreciated only by someone with a discrete knowledge of basic physics. This guy not only defies Tiphares, but the law which governs the fabric of reality itself. You know that he is doomed, but still it is impressive.

* BadassBoast: The most epic one of the first series is There are many, both delivered in the second-last chapter by Desty Nova, among all people, Alita and by her antagonists. However, even if it can arguably be fully appreciated only by someone with a discrete knowledge of basic physics. This guy physics, the most epic one of the first series is probably delivered in the second-last chapter by Desty Nova, among all people. It comes after that he has defied Tiphares to the point that they prefer to [[BigBadEnsemble readmit him into their lot instead of fighting him]] and that he has ([[spoiler:apparently]]) trapped Alita into his [[LotusEaterMachine Ouroboros Machine]] to brainwash her. And with this boast he is not only defies Tiphares, defying one of the most fearsome warriors of Alita’s world ([[spoiler:i.e. Kaos in his Den incarnation]]), but the law which governs the fabric of reality itself. You know that he is doomed, but it is still it is impressive.

* HeartDrive

to:

* HeartDriveHeartDrive: The [[spoiler:Tipharean brain chips]] count as this for Alita, Sechs and the twins. Alita keeps hers in the usual spot. The others stretch the trope a bit by hiding theirs in tethered shoulder pets: a pair of cutsey puffballs for Elf and Zwölf, and a cybernetic Mini Me for Sechs.

** She gets plenty moments of awesome in all her appearance, but it shows the most during the final with Space Karate Team. Let's do a listing here: First, she brought enough weapon and ammo to fill an entire room (but is not allowed to bring most of them in due to the weight restriction). She still looks like a walking armory entering the match. During the match, she effectively use a combination of pistols, grenades and a few [[AwesomeYetPractical exotic weaponry]]: An Assault Rifle / Grenade Launcher / Shotgun [[SwissArmyWeapon combination gun]], and a Metal Storm - like [[MoreDakka stacked projectile machine gun]]. However, the true aces up her sleeves are gradually revealed later. [[spoiler: The pair of arms that she is using since the beginning was just a pair of [[MultiArmedAndDangerous Exo-Arms]]. Her overcoat is actually a DeployableCover. She has three hovering bunker-buster missile hanging in the air from the match's beginning. Last but not least, the two [[HandCannon giant revolvers]] she has been carrying around shoots bullet made from [[DepletedPhlebotinumShells Osmium]], in-universe being the densest stable element. She ended up using all these to win the fight, with only one round left.]]

* BodyHorror: Many of the cyborgs, and anything/body from Venus. Especially Alduína of Venus's [[TournamentArc Z.O.T.T.]] team. Of course, she very, very quickly gets worse. And in the original series, the victims of [[MadScientist Desty Nova's]] Karma experiments seen in his first and second laboratories also qualify. Also Maske tumor, as shown by baron Muster.

In 1993, an anime OVA was released based on the first two volumes of the manga (it was later released in the United States by ADV Films under the name ''Battle Angel''). There are no plans to continue animated adaptations, but a [[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0437086/ live action version]] produced by ''Film/TheTerminator'' director Creator/JamesCameron is currently wavering in and out of DevelopmentHell. Thanks to Cameron grabbing the license, the OVA is no longer sold in the United States.
