* DeaderThanDisco: As one of the {{Trope Codifier}}s for the BattleHarem genre of light novels (while ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'' came before, it had more focus on action than SliceOfLife school hijinks), both the novels and the first season of the anime were well-received, and the series was considered pretty innovative as far as HaremSeries go (for example, having the main character be a capable fighter rather than an OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent [[ThisLoserIsYou loser]]). Thanks to the [[SeasonalRot drop in quality of both the novels and the anime]], especially in [[AmericansHateTingle the west]], most of the fanbase dried up, and [[FollowTheLeader the large number of works that copied more than a bit from the series]] didn't help one bit. Today, whenever the series is brought up, it's usually to be blamed for the trend of mediocre PanderingToTheBase light novel adaptations that plague anime in TheNewTens.

** Tatenashi. You either find her the best girl in the series or just a stupid MarySue. No middle ground!

* StopHelpingMe: When Houki, Rin, and Cecilia all try to explain to Ichika how to use the IS with their TechnoBabble, it only serves to confuse him. On the other hand, Charles offers to duel Ichika, and after soundly [[CurbStompBattle stomping him]], he offers some tips on Ichika's weaknesses and explains things that makes it easy for him to understand. He also helps train Ichika on using a rifle, and seems a bit too friendly, causing the girls to get quite [[ClingyJealousGirl jealous]].

* [[FauxActionGirl Faux Action Guy]]: A male instance of this trope. Despite being the main character and receiving training from multiple tutors, Ichika manages to lose nearly every 1 on 1 fight he's in.

** And then there's Tatenashi's ''Mysterious Lady'', which does away with standard kinetic weapons and lasers of the existing IS units in favor of [[{{Nanomachines}} nanotech-weaponized water]]. If one wants a sizable comparison of this IS to any HumongousMecha ever introduced in Anime, just these two words: [[spoiler:[[Anime/TurnAGundam Moonlight]] [[GodModeSue Butterfly]].]]

** Laura for Orimura-sensei. Her teammates back in Germany really thought she ''was'' gay for Chifuyu.

* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: ''Byakushiki'' [[spoiler: upgrading to Setsura, and reverting into the former in between seasons. No TransformationSequence, no nothing.]] It's pretty jarring to say the least.

** Also, post anything about Charles/Charlotte and [[ItMakesSenseInContext windows]]. Guaranteed replies complete with WhiteKnighting ''with pictures''. Becomes sort of an AscendedMeme with the Season 2 opening.

* BaseBreaker: Tatenashi. You either find her the best girl in the series or just a stupid MarySue. No middle ground!
* BetterThanCanon: The ending of the spin-off manga ''IS: Sugar & Honey'' which definitively pairs up Ichika and Charlotte, has been declared this by the fans who kept up with it.

** Houki is another one. For some, she is one of the best girls of the show with an adorable personality and produces funny scenes with Ichika. Others just despise her saying she is just a generic {{tsundere}}.

** Houki for being a terrible Tsundere and a so-so pilot that seems to get special treatment.
** Tatenashi may count due to her late entry and sueish antics, but some just ignore her existence.

* MarySue: Tatenashi. [[GodModeSue She curb stomps everyone in Ichika's harem, and Ichika himself.]] [[BlackHoleSue Easily sways the harem from spilling their wrath on her afterwards]] ([[ClingyJealousGirl considering their temperament]], that's saying a lot). [[BornWinner Capable of doing everything perfectly, except knitting, maybe.]] InUniverse [[SoBeautifulItsACurse being even more attractive than his entire harem combined]], complete with her own horde of [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer Fangirls]] (that is, jealous of Ichika, really). She's also student council president and part of the organization battling Phantom Task. Volume 6 and 7 add some light to address this, but the result itself is YMMV: Her own sister Kanzashi has massive self-esteem issues because Tatenashi is [[AlwaysSomeoneBetter just simply better at everything than her.]] The one time she feels like she's got one up on her, [[spoiler: getting Ichika to be her tag-team partner]], it turns out that [[spoiler: Tatenashi set the whole thing up by asking Ichika to be Kanzashi's partner, since she was still very new to IS-piloting.]]
** Houki and Tabane have this vibe at times, mainly due to the former getting much of the attention from the author and in-universe getting a borderline GameBreaker of an IS from her sister. Speaking of Tabane, (for those who don't think she's crazy awesome) she's rather able to get away with various major stunts (launching various [=ICBMs=]), and being downright unpleasant to those outside of her limited interest, etc. It's been implied that the girls-only limitation of IS is solely due to her whims.
