* ExactWords: How Tiffany words things is very important, because they describe exactly what happened, and nothing else. Any implications are just that, implications. From the commentary for [[http://worldpeace.emilymarthasorensen.com/worldpeace413.html page 413]]]]:

* ParentalNeglect: The reason Tiffany's so messed up. Her irresponsible mother got pregnant out of highschool and died in a car crash. Her Aunt never wanted children, only took care of Tiffany out of begrudging duty, and wasn't sad when Tiffany was believed to have died. The first father figure to actually care for her was a born mage who ended up becoming a criminal in an impulsive act of revenge.

Added DiffLines:

* FantasticRacism: Born mages are treated with suspicion, no matter how harmless and useless their powers are. They tend to have trouble getting jobs and lose them when their magic is discovered.

* {{Deconstruction}}: The series as a whole is a "light" deconstruction of Magical Girl anime. In this setting, magical girls can only receive their powers if they have a "purity of being" so that they completely believe in and represent an ideal, thereby gaining magical power that is used to hunt down the magical predators that plague society. Unfortunately, the forces of good [[WeAreStrugglingTogether are not one big happy family]], [[MagnificentBastard politicians, businessmen, and even some muggles]] [[WouldHurtAChild manipulate their children into doing dangerous / socially unacceptable things]] for profit, and some of the "pure-hearted" heroes of justice kill people, and are never socially reprimanded for thinking that killing is a pure and honest thing (even in the case of justifiable homicide). This usually results in a lot of nice, kindhearted heroes having serious overconfidence in their ability to be incorruptible or infallible, and are extremely racist towards other types of mages as a result of their conflict and murder of said mages (most of the mages they fight are evil, but only because they're the minority that are stupid enough to cause havoc and fight out in the open), as seen by Kendra in chapter 1 when she is very close-minded to a sensible and peaceful oracle's warnings. A lot of the plot comes from the fact that most of the magical girls in the world think that the world is screwed up and they received their powers by being pure of heart, and by that [[InsaneTrollLogic logic]] they are the most fit [[DudeWheresMyRespect to protect / rule the world]].

* AlwaysChaoticEvil: Played with. Born mages are believed to be evil, but [[WhiteSheep Chronos]] proves there can be good-natured mages as well. Their villainy seems to be more a matter of upbringing than anything else.
* AlwaysLawfulGood: Played with. Magical girls are considered good by definition. Their magical system requires the user to be pure-hearted, but if a magical girl is strong-willed enough she can keep her powers even after losing her innocence. For a time at least.

* ExoticEntree: The Deathwave crime family has a shop that sells pets, minions, and exotic food animals. When one of the animals annoys Rhea by chewing her dress, she retaliates by ordering it for dinner.



* WellIntentionedExtremist: At the start of the series, this is Kendra's most potential future as the leader of the Magical Girl Union. And the Union itself. She's genre savvy enough to quit while she's still sane and resolves to prevent other magical girls from falling into corruption. But she is willing to resort to unpleasant means to do so, such as destroying their magical girl forms.

* PureIsNotGood: How some magical girls are not good, even if they are pure-hearted.
* PurityPersonified: You have to be this to be a magical girl in this universe. Although, the multiple kinds of purity that can be personified allows the creation of 'corrupt' magical girls.
