* HarsherInHindsight[=/=]RealLifeWritesThePlot:
** Nanael's [[HaremSeeker Harem-seeking]] tendences can be really heart-wrenching if you know what happened with [[Creator/AyaHirano her voice actress]] precisely for doing that, to the grade she was black-listed from her former agency and possibly from the franchise as default, hence why she doesn't appear in ''Rebellion'' and Laila replaces her.
** Also, the entire scene when [[spoiler:Melona rapes Mirim with a dildo-shaped device inside her]] in the ''Illustrated Stories'' is even more harsher if you're played ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidGroundZeroes'', since at the end of the game, [[spoiler:Paz has a '''bomb inside her vagina''' besides the bomb inside her intestines, and that bomb ended killing her]]. While the ''Anime/QueensBlade'' version of that scene is played for both drama and tiltilation, the ''Franchise/MetalGear'' one is played for PURE '''NightmareFuel'''.

* ContinuitySnarl: Oh boy, where to begin: Due of the [[ExcusePlot origins of the franchise]] basically the plots of all the incarnations of the whole franchise (anime, manga, games, gamebooks, etc.) have their respective elements mixed between each other, regardless the if each setting are supposed to be independent from each other. Taken UpToEleven with the animated adaptations of ''Vanquished Queens'', who is a prequel of ''Rebellion'', rather than a non-canon series originally and the upcoming animated adaption of ''Grimorie'', who it was supposed to be an altenate continuity with ''no relation'' with the Continent Saga, but the adaptation will simply shoehorns ''Grimoire'' into it, as Leina is confirmed to appear on it.[[note]]Possibly because ''Grimoire'' doesn't have a detailed story compared with the Continent Saga beyond trying to destroy the new BigBad.[[/note]]

** Considering the sheer number of hentai pictures based on Cattleya and [[ParentalIncest Rana]] to the extent that one might not even ''know'' there's a legit series and that she has a relatively small role.

Added DiffLines:

*BadassDecay: Aldra, in her ''Vanquished Queens'' incarnation. The change since [[spoiler: being freed of Delmore]] is so drastic, that she's almost unrecognizable. The once stoic, [[LadyOfWar iron-willed, queen]] having been replaced by a cutesy, [[ApologizesALot overly apologetic]], girl who can barely defend herself.

Added DiffLines:

** Melona is so insanely popular that the first version of the second season's ED is sung from her perspective, describing how erotic she is. Needless to say, the fact that she gets a substantially small amount of screentime in the second and third seasons compared to the first one was caused a bit of a stir in the fanbase.

* CanonSue: Leina plays with it a lot: [[spoiler:She begins the story as an underdog living under the shadow of her stronger sisters and her mother. Later, after taking a TrainingFromHell from Echidna, she becomes practically ''invincible'' and not only wins the tournament, at the time the [=OVAs=] came out, she's able to [[VideoGame/{{Ys}} wipe out entire armies for breakfast]] without breaking a sweat. Subverted big time in ''Rebellion'' since she becomes DemotedToExtra thanks of her curse (both in the anime adaptation and in the Illustrated Stories, possibly to avoid becoming in a female, medieval version of [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny Kira Yamato]][[note]]Keep in mind, at the time when the ''Rebellion'' gamebooks came out in Japan in 2008, the ''SEED Destiny'' debacle was still fresh in the minds of both fans and the members of the Japanese animation industry, the Franchise/{{Gundam}} franchise being very influential in Japanese media, so Hobby Japan really wanted to avoid the same situation with Leina.[[/note]]) and even when she had to face her sister Claudette, ''Mirim'', of all people, is the one who defeats her and in the final battle against the Swamp Witch, Annelotte and Aldra are the ones who defeat her.]] In the ''Vanquished Queens'' short stories, she is the ''only'' character spared from having a DownerEnding, and the "worst" thing she happens to her is being defeated by Claudette and healed by Risty, [[IntimateHealing in a very special way]]. On the other hand, this is averted really, REALLY hard in the animated adaptation, since she's now the victim of [[spoiler:The Swamp Witch herself]].



* GodModeSue: Echidna. She's been undefeated in over 500 years. [[WorfEffect Guess what happens to anyone who tries to fight her?]]
** Made moreso in the ''"Hide & Seek"'' manga adaptation. She effortlessly pwn'd [[spoiler: Elina]], by [[FlashStep appearing behind her]] and instantly rendered her unconscious. Then left her with a broken arm and dislocated shoulder. And when she fights Alleyne (who's [[InformedAbility said to be]] Echidna's equal) during the finals of the QB Tournament, she walks away only slightly winded, whereas Alleyne [[http://www.citymanga.com/queen_s_blade_hide_seek/chapter-25/26/ was exhausted.]] Echidna smirks and [[ILetYouWin opts to forfeit the match]], implying Alleyne had only lasted as long as she did because Echidna had been ''[[http://www.citymanga.com/queen_s_blade_hide_seek/chapter-25/28/ toying with her.]]''

* AwesomeMusic: While most of the incidental music of the two first seasons and the [=OVAs=] are rather generic[[note]]This is justified, as QueensBlade was one of the composer's (Masaru Yokoyama) very first jobs, along ''VideoGame/HyperdimensionNeptunia'' and ''VideoGame/KimiKiss''.[[/note]] some themes shines towards others, such as the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXNECgyQoeQ Queen's Blade Theme]], played when something important is going to happen, normally almost at the end of the episode.

* FriendlyFandoms: With ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', of all things, (at least with crossover fanfics is concerned) despise the only thing in common QB has with ''Naruto'' is both series are action-oriented, albeit some characters, like [[FanservicePack Ino Yamanaka]], [[MsFanservice Tsunade]], [[HiddenBuxom Hinata Hyuga]] and few other females definitely would not being too out of place in the ''QueensBlade'' universe in any stretch.
