* {{Foreshadowing}}: In the Pride chapter of the Book of Eibon, [[spoiler: Excalibur's humility in letting the heroes use him without his provisions, utterly defying the Book's power over sins, is the first hint that he is actually a Great Old One.]]

to:

* {{Foreshadowing}}: In While fighting [[spoiler: Sid]] in the graveyard, Black☆Star listens for their opponent's soul wavelength using Tsubaki. Kishin souls are adapted as red, [[spoiler: but Sid's soul was blue, hinting at the true nature of their 'Mission.']]

* {{Badass}}: Pretty much describes the series. You've got ninjas, scythe-spinning, demons, The Grim Reaper, slicing things in half ... get the picture?
** WorldOfBadass
*** WorldOfHam: Quite. The main contribution to this is Black☆Star.

* {{Nakama}}: The kids develop into this, with both their partners and TheTeam. Their sensei are ''already'' this, most clearly when [[spoiler: Stein is both insane and framed for murder, and his colleagues don't just believe in him but get him out of dodge with Marie to clear his name]].

* BigDamnHeroes: Subverted. Death the Kid, watching the other main characters battle Stein through Death's mirror, fears they're going to die and forces Death to enroll him in the DWMA so that he can join them in their battle, but he gets distracted by his OCD and fails to actually reach them in time. They end up not needing him anyway.

** Also played straight by the adults from time to time, notably when Stein and Spirit show up to save Maka from Crona in their first encounter.

* AdaptationalWimp: Several of the characters in the anime get this. They're not really any less competent, but many of them don't reach the heights of power their manga counterparts did, due to the series having a GeckoEnding.
** [[spoiler:Crona/Ragnarok never becomes a kishin. On the other hand, he manages to keep up his sanity, so he comes out ahead there.]]
** [[spoiler:Soul never becomes death scythe. In the manga he killed Arachne and devoured her soul to become one, but in the anime Asura betrays and eats her instead.]]
** [[spoiler:Death the Kid never succeeds his father, due to the latter being SparedByTheAdaptation.]]

* SoulEating: Humans with the weapon bloodline (essentially a gene which allows them to become an EquippableAlly) can eat the souls of other humans to grow stronger (the good guys only consume the souls of corrupted humans, villains tend to be less picky), so long as they also consume at least one [[WitchSpecies witch's soul]]. Those that indiscriminately eat other humans slowly become [[HumanoidAbomination Kishin]].

* GreyAndGrayMorality: On one hand we have the DWMA, the good guys, that hunt down those that eat the souls of innocent humans and bring chaos to the world. But at the same time, they have no problem hunting down witches, even if they did nothing wrong to deserve it, just to enhance their abilities and are not above using threats (like putting explosive collars on captive witches so that they would be forced to cooperate). On the other hand we have the witches, that while tending more towards evil, are more gray than actual black ([[spoiler: they even later help the DWMA defeating the Kishin]]). However, when concerning [[BidBadEnsemble Medusa, Arachne and Asura]], it is a case of WhiteAndBlackMorality.

* ArtisticLicenseGunSafety: There's a pretty big reason people don't fire guns upside down in real life. See also JugglingLoadedGuns entry.
