* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: Every single music piece is great, but especially "Jounetsu" (the Flamenco song), "The Angel that can't fly" (Raphael and Sylvie's duet) and "Waltz Number 5".
* DieForOurShip: The bashing of Marianne in various sites like Website/YouTube.
* DracoInLeatherPants: Despite being a BitchInSheepsClothing, a KarmaHoudini and not likeable at all, [[spoiler: Rosemary]] somehow managed to ''win'' the 2004 Sai Moe contest, beating Nadja herself on the final no less. Really.
** Somewhat HilariousInHindsight that the final round of a popularity contest just happened to be between Nadja and [[spoiler: Rosemary]] and [[spoiler: ''Rosemary'']] won over her. Guess she got the last laugh after all.
*** She at least does do ''something'' good in the end though, since [[spoiler: it's largely her [[ReasonYouSuckSpeech last speech to Nadja about making your own way through life instead of relying on nobility]] that leads Nadja to make the decision she makes in the final episode.]]
* [[EvilIsSexy Evil Is Cute]]: The reason for [[spoiler: Rosemary]]'s abovementioned DracoInLeatherPants status.
* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: Considering how many videos in Spanish, Italian, and French there are on Youtube, it's safe to say that this anime is big in Latin speaking countries.
* JerkassWoobie: Initially played straight with [[spoiler: Rosemary]], though the sympathy could get lost with each act of cruelty [[spoiler: she]] pulls. ([[spoiler: Though it might be recovered with her last scene, with her acknowledging how wrong she was and bowing out willingly (As well as telling Nadja to treasure her mother, whom Rosemary herself kinda cared for as well).]]
** Completely averted with [[spoiler: Hermann: despite his final scene (see AlasPoorVillain / CryForTheDevil on the main page), he's such a bastard that he's never really seen in a sympathetic light by any characters or the audience.]]
** Played straighter with Marianne and [[spoiler: Keith]]. The first is kinda self-centered and stuck-up but her love for [[spoiler: Francis]] is extremely genuine, she cries at some point since LoveHurts, doesn't lie to [[spoiler: Nadja]] or tries to manipulate her, and the scene where [[spoiler: she acknowledges her love as impossible and quietly leaves]] is rather sad. The second is extremely cool as [[spoiler: Black Rose]], has a decent FreudianExcuse in [[spoiler: his mother's death]] and is humanized by [[spoiler: his conflict with Francis]], but some of his attitudes to [[spoiler: Nadja]] later in the series can come off as [[EntitledtoHaveYou possessive]] [[CrazyJealousGuy and self-centered]], if not [[HypoCrite very hypocritical]].
* LesYay: Nadja and Rosemary are a textbook example of RomanticTwoGirlFriendship, [[spoiler: until the latter snaps and becomes sworn enemy to the former.]]
* MagnificentBastard: [[spoiler: Duke Preminger]] and specially [[spoiler: Rosemary.]]
* MoralEventHorizon: Once his plans start falling apart, [[spoiler: Hermann decides to heck with being sneaky and straight up attempts to shoot his niece, Nadja.]]
* PuritySue: A common accusation leveled at Nadja outside of {{Shoujo}} circles. Thing is, her world tends to [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism be heavily idealistic]], therefore [[FridgeBrilliance the lead heroine MUST be super happy, pure and plucky]] since the story would NOT work in any other way. Maybe she'd be a Sue in ''other'' works, but in this one '''she works perfectly within its limits'''.
* ValuesDissonance: More than one fans has been shocked to see that Nadja, a very sweet and kind girl who loves animals, approves of and likes [[TorosYFlamenco bullfighting]]. This is because the series is set in the first decade of the XX century (and right before UsefulNotes/WorldWarI!), when there was next to none awareness about animal abuse.
