Added DiffLines:

* GeorgeLucasAlteredVersion: The Blu-Ray release (which is used on streaming services) made a number of alterations. Some of them were corrections to animation errors and such, but some things were plain changed. Mami's apartment, for instance, is changed from a very stark place with hardly any furniture to a cozy one filled with plush toys and pretty decorations.

Added DiffLines:

* TheLightfooted: Mami never uses her grace even while using ridiculous numbers of guns, and she curtsies at the start of a battle.

* LimitedWardrobe: Almost every girl is shown with two outfits each: her school uniform (Homura, Sayaka, Mami)/one casual outfit (Kyoko) and her magical girl costume. Madoka is slightly better; in her PJs on occasion as well as when [[spoiler: Ultimate Madoka is seen with a more complex uniform]]. The manga avoids this.

* 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]]]].

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'']].

* 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]]]].
