!!This series provides examples of:

* AffectionateParody: Similar to ''Manga/AiToYuukiNoPigGirlTondeBuurin''.
* AmbiguouslyBrown: Pop
* AnimalSuperheroes
* CatSmile: The girls all have permanent ones in their bunny forms.
* CityOfAdventure: Asialand
* Creator/{{CLAMP}}: They did the character designs.
* FlyingSaucer: The Stress Team fly around in one.

'''Kanako''': Dubba dubba dubba! Relaxation Combat Team Valerian, at your service!
* MagicalGirlWarrior
* MentorMascot: Panda-bu, an oddly spherical panda-thing.
* MeaningfulName: The bunny-girls are named Valerian, Serotonin, and Dopamine, all of which are chemical substances that make you calm/happy.
* MiniDressOfPower: Despite being bunnies, they still wear them.
* MonsterOfTheWeek: In typical MagicalGirlWarrior fashion, the monsters are ordinary people whose negative emotions make them a prime target for the villains' monster-ification device, and whose monster form echoes the source of their angst.
* NerdGlasses: The Stress Team members all wear these.
* NiceHat: Pop. She even wears one in her bunny form.
* PandaingToTheAudience: Panda-bu
* RefusedByTheCall: A one-shot LoonyFan wants to join the Valerians, but Panda-bu refuses because she's eaten a fugusashi ("fish-on-a-stick"), [[NiceJobBreakingItHero which results in her running off and becoming a victim of the Stress Squad]]. The real reason though is because she's still living with her family, without any dissatisfactions, while the Valerians faced all sorts of stress and overcame it; not everyone can fit the bill. She's later seen in front of the Stress Squad's lair, vying to join in.
* ShapeshifterModeLock: Pop suffers this in one special, and her stress from being unable to revert makes her a prime target for the Stress Squad. Apparently, Panda-bu using old batteries on her communicator was the problem.
* SheatheYourSword: How the Valerians win against the BigBad (whose source of stress comes from the heroines), although there's also a lot of running away added in to tire him out.
* {{Tanuki}}: What the BigBad is.
* TransformationSequence: A very short one, but they get a longer and more traditional one in the next-to-last episode.
* TransformationTrinket: Which are activated via card-swiping.
* VerbalTic: Panda-bu adds "-bu" to the ends of his sentences.
