* ChekhovsGun: A fifteen year long one. [[spoiler:At the beginning of ''Negima'', Negi knew nine spells, the last of which was never revealed during the course of the series. Turns out that it was a high level spell that Negi used to seal himself after he was possessed by the Lifemaker.]]

* ContinuityLockout: Surprisingly averted. Akamatsu takes care to explain concepts and relationships from Negima as you need to know them. [[spoiler: Right down to the fact Negi's wife(or if he even has one) is completely unknown, only revealing in Chapter 137 that one timeline had Chisame be Negi's wife.]]

** The second time Touta met Shinobu, he was surprised to discover she's a girl.



* [[FirstGirlWins First Love Interest Wins]]: An extreme version appears to be shaping up: [[spoiler: Eva "won" Touta when she took him in after the deaths of his parents, though he only recently seems to have realized it. Touta "won" Eva ''700 years before he was born'' (and before she met her professed only love Nagi Springfield) thanks to Dana's time-warped dimension.]]

* {{Foreshadowing}}: Yukihime's speech about the different kinds of immortality in Chapter 6 is accompanied with images of various characters. Since then, not only have a couple of these characters made appearances, but what makes them immortal matches what they were "labeled" with in this chapter.

* GenderReveal:
** Chapter 16 reveals Kuromaru has NoBiologicalSex until he is 16, but for now he identifies as male. However, since he has a crush on Touta, he struggles whether he should become a woman and is encouraged by Kirie and Karin to do so.
** The second time Touta met Shinobu, he was surprised to discover she's a girl.

* HammerSpace: GrayRainOfDepression: As revealed in chapter 148, in a timeline without Asuna present, [[spoiler:Negi cannot win against [[BigBad Nagi Ialda]] in 2025. Yue, Nodoka, Rakan and Albireo Imma all become the Lifemaker's marionettes and [[TakingTheBullet Chisame blocks an attack]] for Negi. The next scene shows Negi slowly walking with his head low towards Eva's cottage, not caring whether he is soaking wet in the rain that initially masks that he's crying.]]

* HealingFactor: Vampires of Eva's level can regenerate entire limbs in the blink of an eye. Though Touta does soon lose consciousness after too much of that. Later it's revealed this healing factor has a weakness: the limb only regenerates if the original limb is destroyed. If the limb is merely cut off and doesn't get destroyed, no regeneration happens because the arm is still linked to the body and therefore not considered dead.

* ForWantOfANail: [[spoiler: Asuna's presence changes history immensely. Without her, the Lifemaker isn't defeated, steals four of Negi's allies, and kills Chisame in the process. Not only that, magic and society don't prosper well at all, resulting in the class problems seen at the beginning of the series. In the timeline where she is present, the Lifemaker is defeated without a hitch, magic is seamlessly introduced into society, and Negi eventually marries the girl he loves]].

** Episode 6 adapts Kuromaru's date with Touta and the later fight from chapters 101 to 103 while keeping some elements from earlier chapters like Kuromaru telling Karin he has no defined gender yet. [[PromotedLoveInterest His development of his crush on Touta]] is also rushed several chapters due to Shinobu's interactions with Touta.
** We can asume the same will happen for Mizore since she's shown in the opening and credits of the anime.

** In chapter 105, Touta realizes that [[TimeStandsStill time has stopped]] when he sees a spray of shotgun bullets frozen in midair, but he can walk around them and grab them. This is also how [[spoiler:Dio Brando discovered his Stand's time-stopping power]] in [[JoJosBizarreAdventure JoJo's Bizarre Adventure]], and Touta further underlines the reference by gushing that Kirie can do it for "more than five seconds."
