* 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]].
