* GagBoobs
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: Masane's eyes glow yellow while she is transformed.

* HeroicBSOD: After she releases Riko into [[spoiler: Reina Soho's custody (Riko's biological mother) ]], she loses the will to fight and refuses to get out of bed.

** PowerMakesYourVoiceDeep: She tends to sound huskier and more sensual whenever she transforms.
* PrehensileHair
* PunchClockHero: Initially, at least, Masane only fights X-Cons in order to pay the bills.
* SheCleansUpNicely: She wears a lovely white dress in episode 10 when Takayama forces her to attend a company award ceremony. Unfortunately, her manners remain the same.
* SuperToughness: Masane once took a tank shell to the chest; while it blew her across the room, she was completely unharmed and her only reaction was to smirk and laugh. She can still be harmed by Cloneblade users and powerful X-Cons, however.

[[WMG: Douji Group Industries]]

Douji Group Industries is a huge corporation that is headed by a board of directors and Bureau Chief Reiji Takayama. Douji's primary focus is researching and developing special weapons, such as Witchblade and the I-Weapons. They are also responsible for the presence of X-Cons that rampage through Tokyo at night. Before the Great Quake, they possessed the Witchblade. In the past, Douji Group Industries collaborated with the NSWF on researching the Witchblade. The product of these research was the Cloneblade, a copy of the original Witchblade.

While Douji Group Industries and the NSWF were working together on the Witchblade, one of the NSWF's top scientists, Reina Soho, was sent to aid them in their research. However, Reina stole the Witchblade from Douji Group Industries in an attempt to gain its' power. Once Reina's betrayal was discovered, both Douji Group Industries and the NSWF sent agents in to retrieve the Witchblade.

The Witchblade awoke during this time and the resulting power surge resulted in the Great Quake, a massive earthquake that devastated Tokyo and killed millions of people. After the Great Quake, Douji focused its' attention on retrieving X-Cons, which were malfunctioning machines that escaped during the Great Quake.

The Witchblade is the offspring of the primal forces of the universe, The Darkness & the Angelus. It is male and generally chooses a female host. It is semi-organic and reacts supernaturally to threats. It is able to grant its host a variety of weapons and can heal the wearer.

* AdaptiveArmor: It can become a body armor and weapon at the same time. The amount of armor that comes out of the Witchblade to protect the host will always depend on the level of threat. For example, if the host is fighting a mere mortal, there will be less armor wrapped around the host. But if the host is fighting enemies at the level of demons, it will form more armor to protect its host.
* [[BalanceBetweenGoodAndEvil Balance Between Light And Darkness]]: It acts as a balance between the Light(The Angelus) and the Dark(The Darkness), it hosts also have to be balance between the Light and the Dark as the Witchblade tells Katarina, and the witchblade tells her it rejected her because she wasn't balanced bewteen the Light and the Dark.

* HealingFactor: The Witchblade can heal its hosts when they are injured.
* HealingHands: The Witchblade can heal other people when they are injured.
* HybridPower: The Witchblade itself is a living weapon that has been used by females, and some males, over the generations. It was the offspring of the Darkness and Angelus. It has the power to create a blade, fire energy beams, create wings for flight, and can cover the host in body armor, most of the time. It also doesn't have any of its parents' weaknesses; The Darkness can't function in light, while the Angelus can't fight in the dark.
* MundaneUtility: Being a superstrong cosmic warrior comes in darn handy for moving furniture.
* OnlyTheChosenMayWield: The Witchblade will eat your arm if you're not a worthy user ([[GenderRestrictedAbility or if you're a man unless you are Ian Nottingham or Gerald Irons who have both been wielders of the Witchblade]]).
* PaletteSwap: The Witchblade can changes its colour scheme giving wielders different coloured weapons.

* {{Yandere}}: Everytime Sara rejects the Witchblade it tries to make Sara its host again, and if it can't have her as it's host it tries to kill her.
* YinYangBomb: Witchblade has elements of both the Darkness and Angelus, therefore acting as a balance keeper between the two.
