* EnsembleDarkhorse: While Henrietta is ostensibly the focus character and the Henrietta-Guiseppe-Jean-[=MemoryOfEnrica=] plotline is the main narrative thrust of the work, fans at large have noticed over the years that the emotional impact, narrative depth, and [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome generalized awesomeness]] of the series tends to get turned up to 11 any time Triela is involved in a scene or plotline.
** Worth noting, Triela is the first of the girls we see "on the job".
** In season 2 of the {{anime}}, Triela is [[BreakoutCharacter promoted to the lead]].
* FandomBerserkButton: The title is "Gunslinger ''Girl''", as in a singular child. It doesn't matter if there are several main girls.

* MoralEventHorizon: Averted. When Pinocchio decides to kill Aurora for walking in on his affairs once too many (and given that he's falling in with some pretty shady people, he had every right to be concerned), [[spoiler:Franca orders him to not pull the trigger, thus preventing Pino from actually crossing the MEH.]]

* ValuesDissonance: Any Italian would find all of the relationships unspeakably cold and distant since the author, in a classic case of cultural projection, has depicted the characters with Japanese reserve instead of Italian ''brio'' -- even to the extent of them bowing on occasion.
** This becomes a bit of FridgeBrilliance for the relationships between the girls and the handlers/staff because it represents just how ''uncomfortable'' everyone is around these walking killing machines. And the distance between Giuseppe and Jean is part of the ''point'', though many of the more background characters are straight examples.

** Several cyborgs [[{{Bifauxnen}} may look like boys]] but there officially are no male cyborgs.
* {{Fanon}}: Even if the girls were to live into adulthood they wouldn't appear any older than they did when they were Conditioned; their growth is stunted.
** Male children either don't have the emotional/mental capabilities to handle Conditioning or they're not allowed since people sympathize with little girls easier (for example, during a mission a boy going through stuff or being somewhere strange would be seen as up to no good or deemed suspicious)

* TheWoobie: As a consequence of being an IllGirl, Angelica excites a great deal of sympathy from many readers - to the extent that many were actually dissatisfied with her appearance in ''Il Teatrino''. Although Angelica was alive at the equivalent point in the manga, the first series of the anime ended with her implied death and many considered her reintroduction to have spoiled a beautiful tragedy.

** Elsa de Sica, who was so heavily conditioned that her love-alike feelings (which all of the girls share towards their respective handlers) became so strong as to turn into a straight-up obsession, with her handler Raulo being the centre of her everything. At the same time, Raulo is a jerk who pays no attention to the poor girl outside of the required minimum during their jobs. This ParentalNeglect eventually [[spoiler:caused Elsa to completely snap and first kill Raulo, then herself while walking in the park she was named after]].
