* SupportingProtagonist: Madoka. In contrast to the other four, who spend the whole story--or, in Sayaka's case, most of it--as magical girls fighting witches and sometimes each other, Madoka remains on the sidelines and refrains from becoming a magical girl until the very end. [[spoiler: Ultimately, she is the main character because it is her observations of and empathy with her friends' misery and mistakes that saves the universe, not the actual actions they take.]]

* 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 the only time in the entire series that Kyubey expresses ''any'' emotion on more than a superficial level.]]

* PoorCommunicationKills: The ''series''. So, so much of the grief would've been averted if the girls had been willing to communicate thoroughly and objectively with one another. This is somewhat justified by some of the characters' past experiences, but not completely.

* PoorCommunicationKills: The ''series''. So, so much of the grief would've been averted if the girls had been willing to communicate thoroughly and objectively with one another. This is somewhat justified by some of the characters' past experiences, but not completely. Although it's also very easily justified when you recall that the characters are young teenagers, untrained in conflict resolution and also all dealing with severe trauma. In retrospect, it's incredible that they were as civil as they were.

** Played with in regards to [[spoiler: Kyubey's countless clients over the ages, which include Joan of Arc and Cleopatra. Kyubey claims that without his Miracle Contracts, humankind would still 'be naked in caves' which implies the wishes were helpful for these woman. However, Kyubey's gender is ambigious if the Incubators have genders at all. Second, considering how helpful Kyubey is after the contract is made, his clients still did everything themselves. Third, if Kyubey is right that humans would still be cavemen if he hadn't made contracts with certain girls and women, it implies that the male half of humanity did absolutely nothing.]]

** [[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.* 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]].''

* ShipSinking: In an interview, Gen Urobuchi sank fan-favorite ship Madoka x Homura, saying that Homura's feelings for Madoka were ultimately platonic rather than romantic.

* PsychologicalHorror: The city is cold and sterile. An unspeakable atmosphere of alienation and helplessness permeates it. The witches are [[YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm completely incomprehensible]]. Something about the supposedly-helpful mascot is very, ''very'' off. MagicalGirl [[XMeetsY meets]] ''TabletopGame/TheWorldOfDarkness''[[spoiler: namely, ''TabletopGame/ChangelingTheLost'']]; indeed.

** [[Anime/MagicalAngelCreamyMami Mami]] [[Franchise/SailorMoon Tomoe]] and Kyoko [[Manga/CardcaptorSakura Sakura]] have some very familiar names.



** [[spoiler: Madoka's appearance to the magical girls in the past is more than a little reminiscent of the [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion "Everyone gets turned into Tang"]] sequence.]]


Added DiffLines:

** Sayaka Miki's name is a reference to the main character's love interests in Creator/GoNagai's two biggest works, Sayaka Yumi from ''Anime/MazingerZ'' and Miki Makimura from ''Manga/DevilMan''.
