* ValuesDissonance: Allen's father neglected his wife and family because he fell in LoveAtFirstSight with Hitomi's grandmother (or thought of her as his non-romatic soulmate) when she was briefly transported to Gaia, and doesn't realize he really loved his wife until he was dying in the snow. Fair enough, it's a classic tragic love story... except the object of his obsession was probably not fully out of puberty when he met her. Later, Allen proposes to 16-year-old Hitomi partly to resolve the LoveTriangle with 17-year-old Millerna. In both cases the story treats this as "He's focusing on the wrong girl," not "Wait, she's ''how'' old?!". It's a JustifiedTrope [[DeliberateValuesDissonance when we consider that Gaea's set of values are close to the mindset reigning in the Renaissance, where high-class women were expected to be ''already'' married by Hitomi and Millerna's age.]]

*** Note that Allen never actually pursues any of the woman (save Marlene, who probably started it). Millerna throws herself at him and Allen's response is to stand there. He didn't even know Hitomi had a crush on him.

* CanonFodder: Dilandau and his Dragonslayers (Jajuka included) are often the subject of this, having many, ''many,'' '''MANY''' fan fics based on them so as to answer unanswered questions and expand their backstories beyond what we've seen in the show. But it's quite safe to assume that the Dragonslayers were probably subjected to the same experiments that Dilandau/[[spoiler: Celena]] was when they were young children.

** AndrewFrancis who voiced Dilandau in the original English Dub should also be given a special mention considering that he did a good job in making the character sound like the [[AxeCrazy axe-crazy]] homicidal psychopath and pyromaniac that he is; and so Andrew's voice actually fits the role. Not only that but Andrew, at the time he did the voice-acting for the show and was going through puberty, was actually around the same age as Dilandau - fitting, isn't it? And not bad for a 14-15 year old. With that, Dilandau not only looks like a young teenage boy, but he actually sounds like one. [[spoiler: Note: Celena was voiced by a woman, not Andrew Francis, which still makes the voice-acting choices all the more interesting]].

* [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff Americans Love Escaflowne]]
** The TV series bombed in the ratings during its run in Japan (it didn't help that it released the week after ''[[Franchise/NeonGenesisEvangelion Evangelion]]'' stopped airing). It actually achieved much more mainstream success abroad. However, many, many Japanese manga and anime artists have cited it as a major influence.
** This is more a case of ''Koreans'' Love Escaflowne, because of the success that the series saw in that particular country, it even influenced several moments in the BigDamnMovie, the clothing that [[http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v506/Eirythe/Screencaps/Escaflowne%20-%20The%20Movie/11_Adom%20Village/eirythe-escaflowne_3013.jpg Hitomi wears]] in the beastman village is called a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chima_%28clothing%29 chima]], part of traditional korean garb.
** As far as the Anglosphere is concerned, it was also pretty huge in Canada, perhaps even more so than in the states. It helps that the Canadian channel that carried it, Creator/{{YTV}}, butchered it A LOT less and actually aired all the episodes (with the cut dubbed version (recorded by Ocean Group) -- that Creator/FoxKids initially put out but cancelled -- placed in the afternoon, and the uncut dubbed version (also done by Ocean Group) in the evening; and yes, with the same English-speaking cast).

** May also cross over with AssholeVictim. Dilandau is played straight-forward as an [[CompleteMonster irredeemable brat]] who doesn't just kill people but enjoys doing it, and believes it reinforces his superiority. Some viewers may get satisfaction watching him finally fear for his life.
