Added DiffLines:

* MadonnaWhoreComplex: If you can defeat witches, replenish your soul gem and stay upbeat just like you're supposed to, congratulations, you're a magical girl! If not [[spoiler: you're a witch.]] Funnily enough, it's quite similar to a point made in Revolutionary Girl Utena, where two girls telling a fairy tale note that a girl in such a story has no choice but to be either a princess or a [[spoiler:witch]].

** "Mami" means "Mommy" in a few languages, befitting her role as TeamMom. Lending credence to this idea is how she is the only character whose first name is written in katakana (contrasting with the other girls, whose names are written in hiragana). This could imply that "Mami" has foreign origins, in line with the "Western flavor" Creator/UmeAoki gave to Mami's magical girl outfit. Her name could also be a ShoutOut to [[Anime/MagicalAngelCreamyMami Creamy Mami]], an early magical girl.

* HeartIsAnAwesomePower: Mami's power is to create ribbons. Sounds pretty lame on the surface, but after some research into engineering and practice, she learnt to harness it to create [[http://benigmatica.files.wordpress.com/2011/01/madoka-magica-03-04.jpg rifled muskets]], a {{BFG}} called [[http://static4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130105090739/thebiogateroleplay/images/6/62/Tiro_Finale.jpg Tiro Finale]] and, by TheMovie, [[spoiler:''a fully-functional copy of herself'']].

* TheGreatestStoryNeverTold: [[spoiler: In the end, Homura is the only living witness to everything that has happened, and the new version of Kyubey says he'll have to take her word for it since no proof of it remains.]]* GreyAndGrayMorality: Madoka is the only 100% good character. Everyone else in this series has a little good and bad in them. Even Kyubey has an understandable reason for what he does, and [[spoiler: the witches are [[FallenHero fallen heroines]]]].

* MonsterOfTheWeek: The witches. They're ''not'' harmless mooks and fighting them is an emotionally scarring experience. It is even more scarring when [[spoiler:[[FallenHero the witches themselves were once magical girls like the protagonists]]]].

* HonorBeforeReason: Sayaka refuses help from any magical girl who does not meet her ideal of justice. [[spoiler: She gives Kyoko a grief seed from a witch just because Kyoko briefly helped her in the fight. She also refuses a grief seed from Homura despite knowing that her soul gem was too tainted for her to go on that way.]]

** The phrase "with my own hands" ("kono te de"). Homura says it when declaring that she will kill all the witches and Walpurgis herself, and when she is about to kill [[spoiler:Sayaka to prevent her from becoming a witch. But she does not successfully do either of these things]]. Madoka uses the phrase at the end, while announcing her intent to [[spoiler:[[RetGone erase literally all the witches to have ever existed, including Walpurgis.]] Which she does. She also "kills" Sayaka and takes her to WarriorHeaven so she won't become a witch]]. [[SubbingVersusDubbing The English dub has no such echo.
