* ActorAllusion: In the Funimation dub, Shana is voiced by Creator/CheramiLeigh, who voiced another {{Tsundere}} literal FieryRedhead with a sword in ''LightNovel/KazeNoStigma''.
* AuthorExistenceFailure: Jerry Russell, who voices Lamies in the English version of Shakugan no Shana (Funimation dub), died on September 5, 2013 following serious complications from surgery in Texas.
* DuelingShows: With ''LightNovel/KazeNoStigma''.
** Likely as an ActorAllusion, Shana's voice for the Funimation dubbed material is Creator/CheramiLeigh, who voices Ayano, another [[FieryRedhead redheaded]], [[PlayingWithFire fire wielding]], [[HeroesPreferSwords sword wielding]] {{Tsundere}}.
* FountainOfExpies: Shana is, obviously, the original ShanaClone.
* HeyItsThatVoice: The Snake of the Festival is [[Creator/ShowHayami Sousuke Aizen]] in his [[MagnificentBastard usual role]]. Fittingly Shana is [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Karin Kurosaki]].
** Kazumi is [[NodameCantabile Nodame]] and [[LightNovel/FateStayNight Saber]].
** Creator/TheOceanGroup did the English dub for the first season, resulting in "[[Creator/TabithaStGermain Flay really became Badass]]" and Kazumi sounding like [[GundamSeed Lacus]].
*** About Tabitha's part, she actually had the long record of voicing [[Franchise/MyLittlePony every My Little Pony thrown to her by Hasbro]], not to mention [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic in Friendship is Magic where she voiced even more ponies]].
*** [[Creator/CheramiLeigh Her replacement]] in the Funimation dubs of Seasons 2 and 3 [[LightNovel/KazeNoStigma has had previous experience playing someone just like Shana]].
** Satou wants to be the [[Manga/DeathNote God of the New World!]][[note]]Ocean dub only[[/note]].
** Also, Khamsin is Near[[note]]Ocean dub only[[/note]].
** The [[Creator/RieKugimiya two]] [[Creator/SatoshiHino leads]] also pop up together elsewhere, from [[LightNovel/ZeroNoTsukaima Louise and Saito]] to [[Manga/{{Gintama}} Kagura and Kamui]] to [[NabariNoOu Miharu and Kouichi]] and finally a whole other meaning of ''together'' in SaintSeiyaTheLostCanvas.
* NoExportForYou: The novels. Viz owns the rights to release them in English. Viz released the first two novels in English, then lost interest (even though they're still releasing the manga). No-one else can release the novels while Viz own the English rights, whether they use them or not. Damn.
* TheOtherDarrin:
** The entire English voice cast was replaced for season 2 and beyond with Dallas-based voice actors, since Creator/{{Funimation}} chose not to have the series recorded in Vancouver due to a [[DevelopmentHell two-year long]] [[ScheduleSlip delay]] resulting from the Geneon[=/=]Universal [[ExecutiveMeddling merger red tape]], resulting in a major firestorm with fans. [[Anime/DragonBallZ It's not the first time they have moved an Ocean dub in-house]].
** Even the Japanese cast was subject to this. In the Drama CD that was released in 2004, Shana was voiced by Creator/YuiHorie, Yuji Sakai was voiced Creator/MasakazuMorita, Alastor was voiced by Creator/AkioOhtsuka, Kazumi Yoshida was voiced by Akemi Sato, Chigusa Sakai was voiced by Creator/YukoMinaguchi, Friagne was voiced by MasayaMatsukaze, Nina was voiced by MasumiAsano[[note]]She would voice Yukari Hirai in the anime adaptaion[[/note]], and Hayato Ike was voiced by Takayuki Sasada.
* RealLifeRelative: Ike and Keisaku's seiyuu are brothers.
* RelationshipVoiceActor: Yuji, Shana, and [[spoiler:Snake of the Festival]] are [[Manga/{{Gintama}} Kamui, Kagura, and Umibozu]].
** Yuji and Shana are also [[ZeroNoTsukaima Saito and Louise.]]
