* AnachronismStew: Justified in that [[spoiler: Celcia's spell summons objects from our world to hers]] (so having a tank makes perfect sense [[RuleOfCool and is awesome]]), but also played straight in the pop culture references and the many religious profanities used. And Elf Mc Burger. ''You cannot escape Mc Donalds.''

* MagicMisfire: Celcia disguises herself as a doglike creature to try to help them find the spell fragments without being recognized. However, when they find the first fragment and she transfers it to herself, it causes [[spoiler: ShapeshifterModeLock until they have all the fragments. Her increasingly ridiculous appearance as the spell fragments transfer to her become a RunningGag.]]

* InspectorJavert: Judge. While he's in the right about Those Who Hunt Elves being criminals and a serious nuisance, he's very much an authoritarian JerkAss. Even on the second season, when the team gets a special dispensation that allows them to do their "job" freely, he continues to insist that he wants them in jail and keeps seeking methods to make them lose the dispensation so he can do it (his favorite being stringing them along with a series of ImpossibleMission bets with their freedom on the line--the team accepts because otherwise they would not be able to have access to the elves on those places, period).

* DarkerAndEdgier: The manga Mold arc, with a villain that actually managed to conquer the world and ''8 million'' deaths upon her introduction alone. Compare this to the usual story arcs where pretty much nobody dies.

* EvilCounterpart: Bartz, Kilica, and Teesen in the manga who serves Dawn Baxton. Their roles are similar to Junpei, Ritsuko, and Airi respectively, i.e. Bartz is a BareFistedMonk, Teesen is a ShapeShifter, and Kilica...well, hers is actually slightly different as she's actually a PuppetMaster who specializes with PeoplePuppets and StandardStatusEffects instead of being a FriendlySniper.

Oh, she also used a PortalBook to capture people. Add to that that they're ''also'' hunting elves to use as magical batteries.



* IdenticalStranger: Kilica from the manga is pretty much Ritsuko with elf ears and a different hair color.
