Added DiffLines:

* LoopholeAbuse: Both Jupiter and Venus' respective seeded teams in the ZOTT engage in this. Hardly surprising, since they were designed specifically for the tournament.
** The Jupiterean team's first fighter, the Übernaut, is exactly 50 meters in diameter and weighs exactly 500 tons, placing it just at the size and weight limit. However, it has the abiliy to cover itself in a shell made of the ground it stands on. Because the size rules only apply ''upon entry'', it can grow as large as it needs to without breaking the rules.
** The Übernaut also fires a kind of gas that instantly crystalizes into a polymer cube. While the rules only allow for a certain volume of ammo to be brought into the arena, the polymer cubes can be recycled and fired again and can therefore be used as much as required.
** The Venusian team has a member called Arduinna, [[spoiler:who is only 50 cm long when entering the arena, but grows big enough to cover the arena in minutes, allowing it to grow that big without violating size regulations]].
** Another Venusian member, Bigorne, is able to quickly spawn and "fire" small, fish-like creatures that fly and explode very much like missiles. While the tournament only allows up to five sentient members per team, that rule doesn't apply to members spawned ''inside'' the arena.

* HumiliationConga: Alita's [[{{EstablishingCharacterMoment}} first encounter with Trinidad]] gets pretty painfull pretty fast. [[spoiler: First he casually pats her on the head like she's a first grader. Then he easily overpowers her, makes her KISS HIS FEET, snaps her in half, puts her into a block of plastic and finally flushes her out of the airlock like a piece of trash. Desty Nova also gets outwitted completely for the first time ever.]] So basically: [[{{Badass}} Don't mess with this guy!]]

* GoMadFromTheRevelation: Tiphares adults who discover the secret of Tiphares ([[spoiler:having your brain replaced with a chip]]) almost never keep their sanity.

* 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.]]
