* FanNickname:
** "Anime/SkyGirls no pantsu", "Strike Pantsu", "Pantsu Witches", "Sutopan" & "Sutomajo"
** And for Brave Witches, some have started calling it "iM@S Witches" due to the majority of the girls being voiced by ''[[VideoGame/TheIdolmaster iDOLM@STER]]'' voice actresses, including [[Creator/YumiHara Sasha]] and [[Creator/NatsumiTakamori Nipa]] who were already cast prior to the 502nd even getting an anime.
** Hikari Karibuchi was immediately referred to as "[[{{Expy}} Yoshika 2.0]]", not!Yoshika & not!Miyafuji upon the reveal of her being the protagonist of Brave Witches.

* ''Anime/StrikeWitches'' is all about real-life {{Ace Pilot}}s reimagined as magical [[{{Fanservice}} pantless]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mecha_Musume part-]]''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mecha_Musume WWII Plane]]''-lolis. None of them wears '''PANTS'''. They fight some kind of alien shapeshifting [[{{Nanomachines}} goo]]. Apparently, magic transforms you into PettingZooPeople. Still, [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment no pants]].
** Actually, according to episode 7 they're all wearing pants that only ''look'' like panties.
*** What does that even mean??
*** Apparently it's the equivalent of putting boxer shorts over briefs.
** It's quite clear from watching it that they're wearing only panties (or swimsuits in a couple of cases). However, they call them pants instead of panties. This seems likely to either be an attempt to make it seem somehow okay for girls to run around with no pants on, or it's a case of using the British meaning of the term pants (which is underwear) rather than the American one.
** In the original Japanese, the word they use is ''zubon'' (trousers), so, by the standards of their world, they're properly clothed.
** There are never-ending rumors as to whether or not Chuck Yeager endorses the show, hates the show, or is even aware of the show's existence, from various photoshops to Facebook encounters.
*** According to the guy responsible for research and setting of the franchise, Takaaki Suzuki, Gen. Yeager has been notified of the show before it was release through a mutual contact within USAF.
** There is one witch that wears pants, but her historical counterpart went into battle without pants.
