* CoolShades: Blade's. If they were a bit more pointy and orange, they'd look almost like [[TengenToppaGurrenLagann Kamina's]].

* BaitAndSwitchLesbians: The Bishoujo Squad do well... Overwhelmingly LesYay things in the ED sequence, but once finally introduced, are nothing of the sort.

* AuthorAppeal: Nearly every man is gigantic with huge muscles and some sort of BadassLongcoat while almost every female is either petite or verging on TokenMiniMoe. The latter becomes more and more prominent as time goes on, as the huge musclemen are steadily phased out in favor of more and more cute little girls. It reaches a point where [[spoiler:''Blade himself'' becomes a cute girl in the final chapter]].



* GenderEqualEnsemble: The main team for the majority of the series consists of four men (Blade, Cruz, Gido and Teruyama) and four women (Eve, Disc, Seto and Solva). Later on in the series, Mio more or less permanently joins the group while Saten slips in and out of it, keeping the gender ratio relatively stable. Completely thrown out of balance in the final chapters, however, where [[spoiler: Setsuna and Kuchinashi join the main group, Gido and Saten, who are revealed to be the BigBadDiuumvirate, are killed off, Blade becomes trapped in Eve's body and Cruz becomes a girl, making Teruyama the only man on a team of 8 women.]]

* HugeGuyTinyGirl: A rare case where this applies to ''every'' character. All of the male characters with the exception of [[DudeLooksLikeALady Cruz]] are drawn as towering musclemen while all of the female characters with the exception of [[TheDragon Riru]] are drawn at the very least as petite and at the very most as [[TokenMiniMoe lolis]].

** The final chapter gives us probably one of the most disturbing shots in the manga. [[spoiler:Gido tries to rush towards the dimensional gate as it closes. He's too late and the gate closes on him. The following page shows that it ''bisected'' him and gives us a [[http://www.mangareader.net/needless/113/22 good view]] of all his organs.]]

** Heavily lampshaded and subverted by the head mistress of St. Lily Academy. [[spoiler:After deflecting Rin's attack]], she says that ClothingDamage acts as the LifeMeter [[NoFourthWall in this manga]] and thanks to her steel clothes, she is invincible against ClothingDamage and real damage.

* FunnyBackgroundEvent: Heavily Subverted. [[spoiler: Arca]] complains that [[spoiler: "Our family name is not Yamada"]] to a comically surprised Eve... While in the background, [[spoiler: Cruz]] is holding his RECENTLY CUT OFF ARM in pain.

* BlasphemousBoast: When Kafka claims, that his [[RazorFloss Razor Wire]] could only be cut by God and Adam Blade actually cuts through them, he counters, that is makes him stronher than God.
