* [[spoiler:BitterSweetEnding: Strauss and Adelheid are able to destroy the aliens and saved the Earth. But Adelheid sacrifices herself to terraform the moon so the Dhampires can have a home of their own. Strauss and Kayuki finally have their duel where she finally kills him, ending the Curse of the Black Swan that's been slowly killing her, freeing Strauss's wife and daughter's souls, and freeing Strauss long life torment, so he can finally be reunited with his family in the afterlife and leave the world to his friends, allies, and adopted daughters.]]
* [[spoiler: BookEnds: The manga begins and ends with Akabara fighting against the black swan, with the difference being the end result.]]

* CentralTheme: '''Power Corrupts''': This is a major theme in perhaps the most roundabout way imaginable. It isn't Akabara who's corrupted by his godlike powers. He's an insanely nice, unbelievably benevolent soul who never showed even the slightest inclination of using his powers for anything but the good of his people and a determination ''not'' to do so at the expense of anyone else. Instead, it's the people around him, particularly his enemies, who are corrupted by their overwhelming fear of Akabara's power, prompting them to more and more horrific extremes in an effort to bring him down, culminating in [[spoiler: Saberhagen's murder of Stella and her unborn child for the sake of creating a weapon specifically designed to kill Akabara,]]

* [[ChekhovsGun Chekhov's Gun]]: When they first meet, Akabara tells Letty a story about the origins of vampires. [[spoiler: He also tells her that he could fly to the moon.]] This turns out to be more important than you might expect.

* Flashback: There are a lot of these to a thousand years ago, each revealing more to the audiences and in several cases, completely changing the meaning of the events in the manga.

* {{Expy}}: GM is very reminiscent of Kiyotaka from Shirodaira's previous series, {{Spiral}}... just replace the mask with a furry costume and add more quirks.

* BrokenAesop: One of the morals seems to be that there is no such thing as complete evil and that everyone does something for an understandable reason, yet the reasoning behind the [[spoiler: aliens']] actions is never explored leaving them as simply invaders.

* SwordOfDamocles: The [[spoiler: Fio aliens]] act as these encouraging the factions to work together although there are still plenty of gambits going on although there were partially aware of this and took some token measures to defy the trope. [[spoiler: Akabara also acted as one of these for the past 100 years letting himself be known as an all powerful enemy to both dhampirs and humans in order to unite them.]]

Added DiffLines:

* DaywalkingVampire: [[spoiler: The revelation that Akabara ''doesn't'' burn up in direct sunlight the way all other pureblood vampires do is the final straw for his enemies. Prior to that, they were actually finally willing to make peace with the vampire kingdom on the assumption that, however powerful he might be, Akabara still had that one glaring weakness. Learning that he was immune to sunlight turned into a massive OhCrap for all the other nations and even Akabara himself.]]
