Also a KickTheDog, as he makes an effort to humiliate and degrade her at the same time. Although the ''only'' reason he effortlessly beats Angela is because Angela's ancestors' deity, the King of Dragons, signed a contract before she was born that all dragons must obey Shichiou. That allows Shichiou to magically command Angela and Glen not to move and then beat the tar out of the magically-paralyzed Angela]].

** Dialogue: ALL of the girls (especially in the true ending), wind up liking Arata to some greater or lesser degree, ranging anywhere from profound respect to outright love.
** Plot Implications: We are given very broad reason to believe that not only is the world the Princesses have come from very relaxed standards wise (they aren't as hung up over illegitimate kids), but the BrotherSisterIncest implications in the plot are not regarded as {{Squick}} by the other girls. In fact, they SUPPORT Arata/Chris (with the broad implication on both sides that they wouldn't mind being haremettes or in a polygamous relationship, which is actually not uncommon for royalty)
** Practical Reasons: Due to the events of the game plot having caused major political uncertainty, polygamy would be a great idea for political expendiency (with the added bonus the prince and princesses would actually be pretty okay with it), and considering the whole plot was an UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny to determine the continuance of the political balance, polygamy benefits all sides.
** The above said, the plot begs for an extended epilogue FanFic.
** And at the very least, the game pretty much says flat out that although Chris is the more important, Arata also gets together with at least the princess he merged with at the end.

Liliana almost beat Angela by sheer diversity of tactics, always one more just up her sleeve, losing only because Angela managed to beat Liliana's Absolute Zero technique, the strongest one she had.

** There's a subversion with Liesel. Since the country Palmied is run by a merchant oligarchy rather than a monarchy, "princess" is simply the designation for whichever girl is selected to participate in the Waltz, rather than an actual noble title...though it's hinted that the princess is usually upper-class, since [[spoiler:Riko was only a lowly engineer, but the only one qualified to use the Dress after the original girl [[SurprisePregnancy was disqualified]]]].
* [[spoiler: FakeDefector: Pigeon. It technically starts off as real, since Shichiou is able to command him and not Crow since Pigeon is old enough to be bound by the Emperor's contract, but Pigeon gives Crow an opportunity to escape upon Pigeon's initial betrayal, and then Pigeon talks about how to beat the Super Elder Guardener while Crow is within earshot so Crow can free the princesses and take away the Super Elder Guardener's source of infinitely-regenerating health.]]

* AwesomeButImpractical: The skills in the game during the card battles. Sure they can deal way more damage than the usual damage but there's a catch. To give you an example: 1st phase throw a Feint: you get initiative. Fair enough. 2nd phase throw an Overdrive. Oh look, the enemy has a card and is using it to block using Parry. Too bad try again '''the next day.''' Skills are one shot only and they can only be refilled the day after.
