* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: Unlike the rest of the Guardians, Tenko tends to have whatever magic power would be handy at the moment like telekinesis or walking through walls, totally independent of their Starfire Gems.



* SmurfettePrinciple: Weirdly for a show aimed at an ostensibly female demographic, but Tenko's the only female Guardian out of four. There's three other women, but they all don't qualify for one reason or another. Ali only gets her own gem at the end of the second-to-last episode. Shonti did not get her gem in any of the episodes and the only reason we can even assume she was to get one at all is because of her toy. And Jana is evil and doesn't cooperate with Tenko ever but in the finale.

Added DiffLines:

* ToylessToylineCharacter: All the male characters, leading to things being filled out by sideline characters from the show. The doll line consisted of a few variants of Tenko, Jana, Ali (who did eventually become a Guardian but not in time to ever use her power), and Shonti (who was never a Guardian and never had a gem, although her doll did).

* SurveillanceAsThePlotDemands: In an early episode Janna and Jason manage to steal a Starfire Gem that lets them spy on anyone anywhere, letting them know when and where they'd need to be to screw up Tenko's plans. If needed the Guardians could fake it out with elaborate charades, but this did mean splitting up the team which presented its own problems (indeed, the one episode they do this is the one where the show's ''other'' major villain appears, and having the whole team would've come in really handy).

''Tenko and the Guardians of the Magic'' was an ephemeral 1995 animated show by {{Saban}}. The story is about a young teenage girl who was discovered by an old magician, Hikita, while she was performing at a circus. He told her she could do more magic than just magic tricks if she got the proper training and she agreed to come with him. She goes to the school to train with five (six if Shonti is counted) other students and soon becomes best in the class. Becoming the Tenko, she learns about the powerful Starfire Gems, each of which have their own magic power. However, another student, Jana, enraged that neither she nor her brother Jason was chosen as the new leader of the gems' guardians despite their grandfather being Hikita's predecessor, coerces Jason into stealing the gems. They get their hands on one apiece, but most of the rest is sent to the ends of the earth to keep them out of the twins' hands. Tenko and her friends are required to recover them all.

* ScaledUp: Combining two Starfire crystals makes [[spoiler:Jana and Jason]] turn into a two-headed monster.
** They can do that because they're twins.

* EldritchAbomination: The demonic creature seen in the last episode who it's implied would've been the BigBad of a second season.

Added DiffLines:

* ShipTease: Jason flirts with Tenko the moment he meets her and a subsequent episode implies that the attraction is mutual but Jana drags him into evil with her before anything can happen between them.
