----
!!This OEL manga contains examples of:

* AllLovingHero: Luna is nice and sweet to absolutely everyone. When she acts friendly towards the Count of Bruckenstein, it manages to cheese Control off just a bit.
-->'''Control''': You need not be nice to ''everyone''. He did try to kill you.
* AlphaBitch: Elizabeth Westbrook.
* AloofAlly: [[spoiler:Anders.]]
* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: Oliver, especially when his mom starts to seriously see Mr Dreyfus.
* BadDreams: Luna really doesn't take [[spoiler: having to kill Tromperie to protect her identity]] very well.
* BishieSparkle
* BenevolentConspiracy: Knightfall presents itself as this. [[spoiler: Tired of The Agency basically throwing away their agents lives, it's leader wishes to change that]].
* BoxedCrook: [[spoiler:Count Von Brucken, starting in the very last panel of Volume 5.]]
* BrainBleach: Cited by Oliver after his mother spends the evening flirting with Mr. Dreyfus.
* ButNowIMustGo: [[spoiler:Jia, after her damaged fusion source is replaced by an alternative source supplied by Timothy.]]
* [[spoiler:CloningBlues]]
* CloudCuckoolander: Pricipal Ohlinger.
* ConservationOfNinjutsu: Luna, while out doing ninja things (spying on Project Scion), met up with a bunch of Count Bruckenstein's ninjas and engaged in a BigBallOfViolence with them. No prizes for guessing who won.
* TheComicallySerious: Control really hates being thrown in the middle of all the insanity going on, particularly during Family Week.
* DarkerAndEdgier: Year 2 is shaping up to become this, especially with [[spoiler:cold fusion research being hounded by a mysterious group, Francesca rejoining Elizabeth after thinking Luna had caused Timothy to break up with her, and Luna herself apparently contemplating a FaceHeelTurn.]]
* DarkActionGirl:
** The mysterious Bruckenstein infiltrator who attempts to steal Project Luna. [[spoiler: It's Jonah's mother, Elyse Von Brucken]].
** Von Brucken sends two of these against to fight the "mysterious ninja girl". [[spoiler: Both are genetically modified clones of Elizabeth and Luna]].
* DeathGlare: never ask Agent K if she knows what she's doing, especially if you have already pissed her off royally.
* DefeatMeansFriendship: [[spoiler:After Luna defeats her evil clone, who then proceeds to lament [[YouHaveFailedMe her coming execution]], she promises to keep the clone safe from harm.]]
* DefrostingIceQueen: A major secondary plot involving Control.
* DesignerBabies:
** Luna is said to be a test-tube baby raised in a secret government base. She's implied to have been [[spoiler: made from Jennifer's DNA]].
** Project Terra is hinted to be this [[spoiler: as a replacement for Luna by The Agency]].
* DisneyDeath: [[spoiler:Jia. Hell, also Luna, Timothy, Jonah, and Anders after the Bruckenstein Embassy is leveled by the explosion meant for Jia.]]
* EvilTwin: Elizabeth Westbrook and even [[spoiler:Luna]] wind up cloned by Von Brucken to further Project Scion.
* {{Expy}}: Aristotle the owl is one to Archimedes from ''Disney/TheSwordInTheStone''. Not as talkative, though.
* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler:Luna's expected path in Volume 8 can be construed as either this or (as the government may have been lying to her) becoming a DefectorFromDecadence.]]
* TheFaceless: The three men who run The Agency are portrayed backlit, obscuring their features. There also appears to be some kind of voice masking, based on the shaded speech bubbles.
* FantasyForbiddingFather: Jennifer's father, who considered anything that distracted her from taking over the family business, including any extracurricular activities to be 'fantasy'.
* GoodIsNotNice: Control is a major hardcase and doesn't cut anyone any slack, but she has good reasons for being that way and she really is trying to do right by Luna.
* GovernmentAgencyOfFiction: The Agency.
* GrayAndGreyMorality: While many of the characters in the series are good people, all of the ''factions'' are dark grey.
** Count von Brucken is the tinpot dictator of Bruckenstein, and at first comes across as an IneffectualSympatheticVillain; in the backstory, of course, he was a serious, no-nonsense, murderous villain. That said, as an adversary he's not that bad, and [[spoiler: after his HeelFaceTurn]], he's reasonably loyal to and supportive of Luna. [[spoiler: And then he went to take control of Knightfall.]]
** Knightfall are an apparently BenevolentConspiracy formed from the remnants of a rebellion against The Agency's ruthless policies and tendency to lie to their agents and discard anyone who's [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness outlived their usefulness]], while their leader regards all of his agents as "his family." However, [[spoiler: Master Control is NotSoDifferent; while he does care about his new "family" to an extent, he's still willing to sacrifice someone for the good of the whole, and he's most certainly even more okay with lying to his children and preying on their emotional vulnerabilities than the Agency. Ultimately, though, Jennifer's reason for opposing Master Control is that he's personally betrayed her.]] As of Volume 9, [[spoiler: they've been taken over by the Von Bruckens]].
** The Agency doesn't even bother to hide it: they don't care about their "assets" except as assets, and they're willing to freely tolerate and engage in foul play in America's interests, or even [[spoiler: terminate Luna and replace her with a next-generation version if Luna doesn't work out]]. As Jennifer says, [[spoiler: the main difference between the Agency and Knightfall is that the Agency doesn't ''pretend'' to care, and thus they're the lesser of two evils. They're also more easily-intimidated.]]
** Control is a stern parental figure and, in most things, a mouthpiece for the Agency's commands. [[spoiler: But she's that strict because she is Luna's ''mother'', and [[MamaBear desperately fighting to prevent "Project Luna" from being terminated]]. Eventually, she mellows out a bit with Luna, and defends that by threatening the Agency to force them to keep Luna alive.]] She's less evil than any of the above, [[spoiler: but as of the end of Volume 9, she's begun assembling her own forces that are personally loyal to her, just as her former mentor, Master Control, once did]].
* HeKnowsTooMuch:
** Control takes out a Bruckenstein infiltrator right in front of a five-year old Luna. When asked why, Control states that it's to protect her as the spy knew too much. This causes concern with Luna, fearing that Control will take out anyone who gets close discovering Luna's secrets.
** [[spoiler: Luna terminates Dr. Tromperie after the latter unmasks her. However, she refuses to do the same to Mr. Dreyfus, who also saw her unmasked, and covers for him with Control.]]
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor:
** Make up your frakking mind, [[spoiler:Jonah]]!
** [[spoiler: It seems to run in the family. Heinrich and Elyse have both revolved into alliances with the Agency and Knightfall, respectively, but once they gain control of Knightfall, it's clear that their only true loyalty is to each other.]]
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:Timothy Hyatt.]]
* [[SheIsNotMyGirlfriend He Is Not My Husband]]: Control yells this at Andrew when he tries to give her a foot massage.
* HotLibrarian: Control invokes this look. The early design notes even makes note that Control should be a variation of the trope.
* HotScientist: Control, Dr. Warren.
* HotTeacher: Control again, once she joins the teaching staff.
* IdiotBall: Count Von Brucken tends to hold this a lot, most notably in Volume 7 when Oliver dumps Luna after seeing him in her house. After Luna loses her temper on him, he's called out on his idiocy by Control.
* {{Jerkass}}:
** Benjiro, Control/Jennifer's father was established to be jerkish when he was introduced in AAL, but in the prequel AAJ, he is shown to have mellowed with age. As far as he was concerned, Jennifer should have done nothing in school that would have distracted her from learning to run his business better, to the point that [[spoiler:he had already forbidden her from going to the Olympics as a swimmer. When she takes the Agency scholarship and no longer relies on his paying tuition allowing her to choose her own curriculum, he even forbids her mother from going to her graduation.]]
** Elizabeth. She already starts out at being mean to Luna as you'd expect the AlphaBitch to be, but she goes as far as trying to jeopardize Luna and Francesca's friendship just for the hell of it, make fun of Francesca hanging out with Timothy out of pettiness, and [[ItsAllAboutMe berating her father for making her look bad in front of the whole school by backing away from confrontation with Count Von Brucken after he starts saying Elizabeth isn't worthy of dating Jonah...when he's armed with a sword and actually drew it when her father tried to settle things with Brucken.]]
* JerkassHasAPoint: Benjiro may be domineering figure, but he's right that Jennifer shouldn't have broken off all contact with him and her mother for ''fifteen years''.
* JustFriends: Teens in high school means this gets said often.
* KissMeImVirtual: One student can't get a date for the dance...so he grows his own using Dr. Warren's lab notes.
* LaughablyEvil: Count Von Brucken. The second arc has him be the comic relief.
* MadDictatorsHandsomeSon: Jonah Von Brucken, TroubledButCute son of the Count Von Brucken and primary love interest for Luna.
* MagicSkirt: Luna is quite athletic in her schoolgirl's uniform, but nothing ever shows. At one point, the panel POV shows her from a clearly upskirted position, but the shadow of the skirt averts a PantyShot.
* MamaBear: Control may not be very nice to Luna sometimes, but anyone who threatens Luna will see just how much she cares for her, up to and including [[spoiler: ''the Agency themselves'']].
* MissingMom: Oliver Riggs. [[spoiler:His mom, Bowie O'Shea, returns a few chapters after Charlie Riggs becomes a DisappearedDad.]]
* MsFanservice: Control is a gorgeous woman with a penchant for wearing cleavage-baring clothing whenever she's in panel. She's also a DefrostingIceQueen, which is bound to up the fanservice quotient. Just read the rest of the page for the other FanserviceTropes that she hits.
* MuggingTheMonster: When Erich tries to bully Jonah, he has absolutely no idea that Jonah's not just the son of the Count, but a fully-trained martial artist who has absolutely no problem with hurting, or even killing, idiots.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: [[spoiler:Jonah, when his mother's real intentions with Jia start to sink in. After everyone survives the resulting Embassy explosion, he agrees to let Anders destroy the disk containing sensitive cold fusion data, and the two call a truce.]]
* NeverMyFault: Benjiro and Emily every time Control running away from home is brought up. They outright refuse to see how they were in the wrong.
* NoGoingSteady: It's high school. Characters get together and break up at least once a volume.
* NoSuchAgency: Well... The Agency to the point that the CIA has no idea they exist.
* NotSoDifferent: Recently, a subject of discussion is that Control/Jennifer and her father Benjiro aren't that different. Both are strict to their child, trying to shape their life. Jennifer seems to have taken the extra step by actually engineering her kid. Both see it as doing what's best for their children, and neither like it when things don't go as expected.
* NotSoStoic: Control [[spoiler:when she breaks down in front of Andrew why she pushes Luna so hard. She's afraid that if The Agency ever sees Luna as a failure, they will destroy her... her daughter.]]
* OhCrap: Elizabeth's BigNo upon realizing Count Von Brucken dropped by ''to kidnap her''.
* OwlBeDamned: The Aristotle [[CloningBlues clones]] who attack Luna and the other students.
* TheOmniscientCouncilOfVagueness: The heads of The Agency present themselves this way, though they don't quite have the omniscient part down.
* PlotMandatedFriendshipFailure: Luna and Francesca when Francesca thinks Luna has caused Timothy to dump her and may be hiding more secrets, and Luna and Oliver when Oliver spots Count Von Brucken (who he had assumed was rotting in prison at the time) inside the house, thinking he's a KarmaHoudini compared to [[spoiler:his own father]]. These events may contribute to a FaceHeelTurn from [[spoiler:Luna]], if the description of Volume 8 is anything to go by.
* PrecisionFStrike: Luna has exactly one swear in the entire series so far: "Damn! He's gone. You guys cost me my shot at following Tromperie." Swearing by other characters, for that matter, is also rare.
** Another notable instance comes from Dr. Andy, who wants to know why Control's so hellbent on shaping Luna into a killer.
* {{Prequel}}: Amazing Agent Jennifer.
* PurpleEyes: Luna.
* RunningGag: Oliver's always falling off his skateboard.
* {{Ruritania}}: Implied with Bruckenstein.
* SameContentDifferentRating: The ratings for the initial individual printings of the first five volumes can cause a FunnyAneurysmMoment when you consider that those were rated Teen, whereas the DarkerAndEdgier installments were rated All Ages from the start.
* ScaryBlackMan: Mr Dreyfus, the strict gym teacher [[spoiler:and perceptive ex-Navy SEAL.]]
* ShipTease: Control and Collins, especially when he starts giving her a foot massage without realizing it. They ''are'' pretending to be married, after all.
* {{Squee}}: Luna when she walks in on [[spoiler:Jennifer and Andrew kissing.]]
* StacysMom: Control's official cover. When she visits school, all the male students are smitten with her.
* StayInTheKitchen: Jennifer's mother doesn't really get it when she sees Andrew cooking and working as a house-husband; she thinks that Jennifer should be doing that.
--> It's very important for a woman to understand the needs of a man and attend to them.
* SternTeacher: Control is an absolute slavedriver, first to Luna, and then later to her students at school. When she assigns five chapters by Friday, a lab presentation on Monday, and then a test on Tuesday, you get the feeling that she's forgotten that her students aren't nearly as superhuman as her daughter.
* TeenSuperspy: Luna.
* ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks: Parodied in the first fight in the story, where the Count misses and ends up in a portrait.
--> [[http://www.amazingagentluna.com/strips-aal/file_01_-_page_21 Now, I will give you a lesson in manners. Er... That is, as soon as I get my sword out of my grand-father's head.]]
* {{Uncancelled}}: Volume 6 finally came out 2 years after volume 5 (which ended on a CliffHanger) was released.
* UndercoverAsLovers: Andrew and Control pose as Luna's father and mother when Luna's infiltrating high school.
* UnholyMatrimony: Heinrich and Elyse von Brucken are genuinely in love with one another, despite both being, at best, of questionable morality.
* VillainHasAPoint: [[spoiler: Master Control]] isn't wrong in that The Agency treats its agents as overly expendable, and that they deserve better. The point is made clearer [[spoiler: when the Agency considers "terminating" Luna and replacing her with another expendable experiment]].
* VillainsDoTheDirtyWork: [[spoiler: Jennifer gives Master Control a chance to walk away after defeating him, but makes it clear that if he [[MamaBear ever threatens Luna again, he's dead]]. Heinrich and Elyse von Brucken, however, aren't so merciful.]]
* YouAreGrounded: Happens to Luna in chapter 20. It seems to have been lifted by the start of volume 5, though.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Oliver has green hair on the cover, apparently an artist choice.
