** Actually subverted by Mami in Episode 3. [[spoiler: Although Mami's refusal to heed Homura's warnings and tying her up to prevent her from helping leads directly to Mami's death, said death actually brings home to Madoka and Sayaka the actual stakes of being a magical girl, giving them both (especially Madoka) serious second thoughts about their choice to do so.

* PrideBeforeAFall:
** In Episode 3, [[spoiler: Mami blithely disregards Homura's warnings and even ties her up to prevent her from helping, treating her like a fractious child. She doesn't get the chance to regret it as she is eaten by Charlotte.]]
** After the reveal of Episode 6, [[spoiler: Sayaka refuses sincerely-offered help from Kyoko and Humura, concluding that they are evil because they don't share her views about what it means to be a magical girl. This contributes to her witching out at the end of Episode 8.]]

** [[TheSocialDarwinist Kyoko]] [[BreakingSpeech tells]] [[TheCape Sayaka]] that [[spoiler: every wish or other use of magic brings despair into the world exactly equal to the hope that it brings, so the best course of action is for magical girls to [[ComesGreatPerks live solely for themselves]].]]

* [[NonIndicativeFirstEpisode Non-Indicative First Two-and-a-Half Episodes]]: Be careful of these episodes, as they make the series billed as a MagicalGirl series with SliceOfLife. That's half-correct, as the second half of Episode 3 demonstrates.

* [[OurMonstersAreDifferent Our Witches Are Different]]: They are reality-warping {{Eldritch Abomination}}s with specific powers that seem to be based on a combination of the location they were born at and whatever they were feeling at the time.

* [[spoiler: {{Reconstruction}}:]] [[spoiler: Effectively, the CosmicRetcon Madoka unleashes in the BittersweetEnding [[BeyondTheImpossible rewrites the rules]] into those of a more traditional MagicalGirl 'verse. Monsters still exist in the form of wraiths and magical girls exist to fight them, but in the recreated universe they no longer turn into witches, which no longer exist (not even Kyubey remembers them, and he scoffs at Homura when she suggests that they used to exist). Kyubey becomes a DeadpanSnarker assistant to Homura, while Madoka has AscendedToAHigherPlaneOfExistence as the patron goddess of magical girls. On the other hand, the reason magical girls don't become witches is because Madoka's ascension to godhood involved [[AbstractApotheosis becoming the abstract concept of 'hope for magical girls']] and causes their witches to vanish instead, while Kyubey's motivations and methods are unchanged... creating a world that's still realistic but not entirely back to the tropes that the show picked apart.]]

* RegularCaller: In the form of Kyubey, who tries to get Sayaka and Madoka to make wishes every episode and in the [[ManipulativeBastard most pushy and manipulative manner possible]]. [[spoiler: He succeeds with Sayaka after waiting until the exact moment that her friend hit the DespairEventHorizon, to say nothing about what he did to get Mami to sign up.]] He finally succeeds in the latter [[spoiler: in Episode 12, but he was too clever by half. By explaining to Madoka the true story of the history of magical girls, he inspires her to perform a CosmicRetcon ... and she's powerful enough to ''force'' him to grant the wish, much to his [[OhCrap surprise]] -- this is notably the only time in the entire series that Kyubey expresses ''any'' emotion on more than a superficial level.]]

* {{Retconjuration}}/RetGone: [[spoiler:Madoka's wish causes Witches to cease to exist because she causes magical girls to vanish before becoming witches. This makes her AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence and erase every trace of her existence, except Homura's memories. It's insinuated that magical girls at the end of their lives also see her, and she can interact with them as a guardian angel.]]
