* CookingDuel: A few of these have happened between ships, particularly when the cooks have grudges against one another; these were dubbed "IronChef Reial". The Hanami Festival had a formal cooking competition.

** [[{{Lunar}} Leo]] deserves a special mention. During a plot with StandardStatusEffects, he managed to get inflicted with just about every one in the book. And in another plot, he was entered into a plane race only to have his plane sabotaged to the point of exploding in midair. Don't worry, though, [[{{Determinator}} he bounces back quickly]].

* ExoticWeaponSupremacy / ImprobableWeaponUser: Most characters use their weapon of choice from canon, rather than switching to something more setting-appropriate, meaning these tropes show up often. Just to rattle off some examples, there's [[Manga/{{Gintama}} Gintoki]] with a [[WoodenKatanasAreEvenBetter bokuto]], [[Manga/BlackButler Grell]] with a [[ChainsawGood chainsaw]], [[{{Lunar}} Jean]] and [[VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} Yukiko]] ''both'' throwing fans... and at the furthest extreme, [[VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} Kanji]], who will use anything in reach.
** Parodied mercilessly in [[http://community.livejournal.com/theskytides/488922.html this log]]. [[{{Lunar}} Jean]] smacks a gang leader with a [[ImprovisedWeapon backgammon board]] that she [[RageQuit just happened to be holding for some reason]]. And then the [=NPCs=] follow suit...

* SupernaturalMartialArts: Most notably, [[{{Lunar}} Jean]]. She's not a magic user in the strictest sense, but through training she's learned how to inflict StandardStatusEffects through a type of MagicDance, and how to use KiAttacks like [[KamehameHadoken Hadouken]].

* TokenEvilTeammate: ''Serenity'' has a number of them: [[{{Eyeshield21}} Hiruma]], their portion of the ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' cast, and, to a lesser extent, the actual villains hanging around.

* EveryoneIsRelated: There are too many cross-canon families to list. The [[strike:best]] [[strike:worst]] most demonstrative example would be the completely screwed-up Hijikata family: the older cousin [[PeacemakerKurogane Toshizou]], his younger cousin [[Manga/{{Gintama}} Toshirou]], and the latter's [[LongLostRelative long-lost]] [[SeparatedAtBirth twin brother]] [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Roy Mustang]].

* NamesTheSame: Can get somewhat confusing, especially with surnames and EveryoneIsRelated. [[Manga/{{Gintama}} Hijikata Toshirou]] and [[PeacemakerKurogane Hijikata Toshizou]] were related, but [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Kurosaki Ichigo]] and [[Manga/DescendantsOfDarkness Kurosaki Hisoka]] are not.

* UnsettlingGenderReveal: [[PeacemakerKurogane Okita Souji]] is often mistaken for female. Revealing that he's a guy shocks people every time.

* ACupAngst: [[YesPrecure5 Mimino Kurumi]]. In her canon, it was a feature of the art style and never brought up. Here, it's been mentioned enough that she's developed a complex, especially in memes and non-canon games.

* LethalJokeCharacter: [[YesPrecure5 Milky Rose]] isn't a real MagicalGirlWarrior in this one; she runs off to change into her overly frilly uniform, has to hold onto her long wig in the wind, and stains the washbasins dyeing her blue rose petals. Along with her canon weakness of [[ShapeshifterModeLock being forced back into mascot form]] after draining her energy, since she doesn't transform, she also turns back into a mascot whenever she's knocked to the floor or into a wall even as Milky Rose. Despite all this ridiculousness and the {{Weaksauce Weakness}}es, she's nearly as strong as her canon counterpart -- "nearly" because she had to be nerfed.

* NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent: Characters are described occasionally as having accents from their home countries (until they've been travelling so long that the accent begins to fade), but nobody has figured out how certain accents sound and, unless the character canonically has a different accent from hir canonmates, nobody [[FunetikAksent types them out]]. During her brief stint at the game, [[YesPrecure5 Karen]] was mistaken for Ivonian due to [[LonelyRichKid her personality]] [[SlobsVersusSnobs and appearance]], to which she replied that her Erealian accent must have weakened after spending a year on the mainland.

* SomethingAboutARose: Denouement's symbol is a stylized red rose. On the blue side of things, there's [[YesPrecure5 Milky Rose]] and her PetalPower, played as much for comedy as for dramatic effect. [[Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena Utena]], being post-canon, is pinged by both of these (and any roses used as somebody's symbol) to the point of past trauma.

* AdultFear: The hiatus, where all five ships were decommissioned, is an uncomfortable reminder of the feat that you can lose your job and your home at any time without warning when it's not even your fault.

* OddFriendship: Why are [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Nena Trinity]], [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Hinamori Momo]] and [[SoukouNoStrain Sara Werec]] friends? ''Why are they not trying to kill each other?'' [[MST3KMantra Who cares?]]

* RiggedContest: Used and subverted with the Gearship Motors Plane Races. As part of a convoluted plan, a good number of characters, mostly ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' villains, rigged the bets and sabotaged planes so that [[SoukouNoStrain Sara]] would win, unbeknownst to Sara herself. However, in the end, ''[[Manga/{{Bleach}} Kensei]]'' won -- in a plane that was falling apart from the aforementioned sabotage, no less -- and Sara got ninth.

* MomentKiller: Arguably the best examples would be with [[VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou Joshua]] and [[VideoGame/{{MOTHER}} Ness]], who have had this interrupt their private time multiple times. One involved Joshua getting suplexed by Ness's older brother, [[{{Pokemon}} Red]].

* MoralityPet: [[Manga/{{Gintama}} Hijikata Toshirou]] has collected a number of animals and animal-like characters attaching onto him without his permission. [[ChisSweetHome Chii]] is the most prominent, but he also has his own [[{{Pokemon}} Pokémon]] and, pre-hiatus, a [[VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss rappig]].
