** Konoha primary goal life seems to be gain attention from Kamui. At times their relationship resembles a pet and owner given Konoha's desire to pet like a dog and have her belly rubbed, but since Konoha is only interested in those things if it's from Kamui, coupled with her ending ''3'', it appears closer to romantic feelings on her part.
** Scharlachrot and Weiß. The latter's main goal is trying to find the former, the latter goes berserk in arcade mode at the thought of the former not being able to find her. In arcade story modes where Weiß does come for her, Scharlachrot goes berserk because she wasn't exclusively thinking about her. Even when she's free from her brainwashing, Scharlachrot is still a ClingyJealousGirl around Weiß as she's the only connection she has to the world.



* ThatOneBoss: Parace L'Sia in ''3''[='=]s Score Attack, quite possibly the single hardest fighting game boss ''ever''. All of her attacks comes out way too fast, the range of each attack is way too good to dodge reliably, and she can easily pull off combos that will deplete your lifebar if she manages to hit you even once. Even getting Parace to low health doesn't help because her TeleportSpam makes her too hard to hit most of the time, and she slowly recovers health during the fight and actually has a super move the lets her rapidly heal herself. Pretty much the only reliable way to beat Parace is to try again and again, because the more times you lose to her the less health she starts the fight with. As of ''[[UpdatedRerelease Love MAX!!!!!]]'', however, the final part doesn't happen anymore. Good Luck.

* ThatOneBoss: Do not let the cuteness of the game's design fool you, it's bosses are pure evil.
** Mildred in the original game. In the first round she's in a cocoon like object while she transforms into her angel form. You don't have to KO her in this phase, which is good because it's likely harder than beating the real fight with her as she's protected by two orbiting [[AttackDrone Attack Drones]] that fire projectiles that cover the length of the stage and only reliable way to attack her without getting killed is if you have a character or Arcana with good projectiles, and very actually do. She's fought in her angel form regardless of whether the player wins or loses, but if the player doesn't KO her she starts the fought off with maximum super energy. Her angel form somewhat less health, but she has a collection of all the best moves in the game including super moves. Her health and damage are far beyond a normal characters and she can dish out more damage with a special attack than players can with a super move. And she has the best super in the game, a screen filling attack that cannot be dodged and requires very precise timing block, or you can kiss half your health goodbye.
**
Parace L'Sia in ''3''[='=]s Suggoi ''2''[='=]s is even worse. She has a collection of the game's best moves like Mildred, but less health. That doesn't matter because she recovers health gradually, and her regular attacks have range akin to projectiles and come out too fast to dodge. She also has an OneHitKO super move that cannot be dodged, another super move that lets her rapidly heal herself, and teleports like crazy. In ''3'' Score Attack, Attack she somehow manages to be even worse, quite possibly the single hardest fighting game boss ''ever''. All of Her super move does kill instantly anymore, but the AI for her attacks comes out way too fast, the range of each attack is way too good to dodge reliably, reads your inputs and she is far aggressive. She can easily pull off combos that will deplete your lifebar if she manages to hit you even once. Even getting Parace to low health doesn't help because She teleports a lot more as well making even hitting her TeleportSpam makes her too hard to hit most of the time, and she slowly recovers health during the fight and actually has a super move the lets her rapidly heal herself.chore. Pretty much the only reliable way to beat Parace is to try again and again, because the more times you lose to her the less health she starts the fight with. As of ''[[UpdatedRerelease Love MAX!!!!!]]'', however, the final part doesn't happen anymore.anymore as she's a fought as a challenge separate from Score Attack. Good Luck.

* BrokenBase: There are some [[FightingGame fighting game]] veterans that have a cold reception to the series just because it has an all-girls cast filled with BoobsOfSteel, GagBoobs, {{Fanservice}}, and {{Stripperific}} characters. Being an animesque series as well hasn't help matters in this regard.
