** Divine Relationship also counts to some degree in the attributes category. Rerolls are generally a powerful tool to have on hand, to the point that many systems limit them to per level or per story arc, and even then often limit the number of times a given die can be rerolled to once. At two points per reroll available each ''session'', they're dirt cheap in ''BESM'', and it's even explicitly stated in the attribute that you can use rerolls to reroll rerolls you don't like, with the only limit on how many times you can do that being the number of rerolls you have available for the session.

* MedievalEuropeanFantasy: The Shards of Azur on Ikaris are a medieval-style world with a replica of the feudal system, except that mages directly replace knights and lords, because a magical fireball is more powerful than a lance and a horse.

Added DiffLines:

* UnequalRites: In the Ikaris setting in the Anime Multiverse, the Shards of Azar are ruled by sorcerers who use true magic, which is severaly distrusted in the Land of the Seven Stars. Meanwhile, the Azarans consider the SupernaturalMartialArts and EnlightenmentSuperpowers of the [[WarriorMonk monks]] of the Seven Stars, and the BadassNormal capabilities of their blademasters, to be nearly magical but not quite - thus relegating them to mercenaries and favored armsmen for the noble mages. Finally, {{Alchemy}} has recently been developed in the Shards, and has magical effects but doesn't require [[FunctionalMagic an Inherent Gift]], so the sorcerers also look down on alchemists.

* PinballProtagonist: The GM's section mentions that this is a normal characteristic of {{Shojo}} anime, but it's not fun to be a PC who has no agency, and it's best to avoid this.

** The {{Sentai}} Member character class from ''BESM d20'' can only really function effectively in a group that is comprised completely of other Sentai Members -- practically all of its abilities '''require''' that there be another character with Sentai Member levels nearby in order to function. If you go it alone or team up with other characters who are ''not'' Sentai Members, all you get is low levels of Personal Gear, Rejuvenation, and Combined Attacks, plus some extremely rare bonus Character Points.
