* 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.

** Played straight with Sayaka though, who makes her wish a few episodes in.

* 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.]]

** But hey at least [[spoiler:they get to be girly, sparkly Liches and not a gross undead one, right? Well sure, unless for some reason they're distanced from the Soul Gem for too long. In one route of the Madoka PSP game, Sayaka's soul gem is misplaced for a long time. By the time it's returned to her, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6-na_Bzmvk4 her body has already begun to rot]]. This normally wouldn't be a problem due to her HealingFactor, but unfortunately she runs into Kyosuke, her crush, shortly after waking up... and the result isn't pretty. Poor girl.]]

* {{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.]]

* PrematureEmpowerment: The ultimate example of how this trope can go wrong for those empowered this way. Kyubey frequently makes contracts with girls without informing them of everything that being a MagicalGirl entails -- namely, [[spoiler:being turned into {{Lich}}es, getting broken by the use of their powers, becoming the very monsters they fight, and getting their souls eaten in the end so that Kyubey and his Incubators can try to avert the heat death of the universe]].

* TheObiWan: [[spoiler: In the final episode, Kyoko and Mami return in a dream-like sequence to discuss things with Madoka.]]
