** The dream in the beginning and Sayakas arc are also full of freemason symbolism. The checker boards symbolize the life of person who have not fully understand the truth and are therefore destroying themselves. (Because of this, Sayaka in nearly all important plot points to her as well as in her death, stands on a checkered floor.) While the stairs Madoka climbs up before seeing the battle against Walpurgisnacht in her dream represent initiation/learning.

* ShownTheirWork: In regards to [[spoiler:Homura's weapons]], which are not only real-life weapons but also are drawn properly to detail. [[spoiler:They even made sure to give Homura's Beretta [=M9=] exactly 15 shots, which is its capacity in real life.]]

** [[TheMovie The third movie of the film trilogy]] will be a continuation of the story. WordOfGod has stated that it began as a plot for the second season that simply wasn't long enough for a TwelveEpisodeAnime. He also confirmed that [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2012-10-13/madoka-magica-story-will-not-end-in-3rd-film the story will not end with the 3rd movie, but he cannot personally predict how the story will unfold]]. A trailer for the third film is TheStinger for the second movie.
* SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong: [[spoiler: The nature of Homura's powers and goal, as of Episode 8. (Later expanded on, in Episode 10.) Over and over again, Homura repeats the month of the series to save Madoka from Kyubey and death.]]
* SerialEscalation: While the whole anime decides to do this from the get-go, a specific mention should go to the first Drama CD: [[http://wiki.puella-magi.net/Drama_CD_1 The wiki's page on it]] ([[CaptainObvious has spoilers]]) decides to explain that '''Episode 10 was ''light''''' when comparing the versions of Homura's DarkAndTroubledPast. This is extremely appalling after you have watched said episode and LighterAndSofter would be the ''last'' thing you would ever want to describe it, since it was ''[[DarkerAndEdgier one of the darkest ones in the entire series]].''

* NegatedMomentOfAwesome:
** Episode 3. Mami blasts her way through hordes of familiars, has an internal monologue about ThePowerOfFriendship, a ThemeMusicPowerup and even manages to render the Witch helpless within seconds of the battle's start. Then [[FinishingMove Tiro Finale]] [[spoiler:fails to make the kill, the Witch unleashes its OneWingedAngel... [[CerebusSyndrome And things take a]] [[OffWithHisHead sharp turn for the worse]]]].
** Episode 11. [[spoiler:Homura's]] battle against Walpurgisnacht. She unleashes a barrage of MoreDakka and MacrossMissileMassacre with military hardware, performing a SerialEscalation of ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill in an attempt to destroy the witch. Just when it seems Walpurgisnacht is defeated, [[spoiler:the witch reveals all the attacks were a NoSell and IAmNotLeftHanded as a FlunkyBoss with MindOverMatter]].

** In regards to characters themselves: The cold ruthless TotalitarianUtilitarian Enlightened scientific [[spoiler:Incubators]] who will do [[PoweredByAForsakenChild anything]] to harvest energy and reverse entropy, versus Homura's equally ruthless Romanticist AntiHero-ism who will do anything for the sake of [[spoiler:protecting her beloved Madoka. Madoka provides a decision buffer between the two conflicting philosophies; she is disgusted upon both of them for their antiheroism, but also at the same time appreciates their intentions, knowing that Incubators try to prevent [[ApocalypseHow Heat Death]] and [[AncientAstronauts liberated mankind from the Stone Age]], while [[AlwaysSaveTheGirl Homura is doing her best to protect Madoka]].]]

* {{Sentai}}: Although they're never all together as a team, the girl's costumes do fit the formula: Pink Madoka, Black Homura, Blue Sayaka, Yellow Mami and Red Kyouko.

* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: Pretty far on the cynical side; Kyoko gives a speech about how magical girls are best off when they live only for themselves and Sayaka, who takes the opposite viewpoint [[spoiler: is broken by her false(?) selflessness and becomes a witch]]. The finale moves things a bit closer to the idealistic side. [[spoiler:Madoka becomes a goddess and prevents any witches from ever existing or having existed... but now demons exist, and the magical girls still have to fight them. Things are now less horrible and magical girls are more inclined to work together but most characters are dealing with roughly the same problems as they were before.]]
