* GrowingTheBeard: The special effects significantly improve over the course of the series.
* NarmCharm: The whole point of the show is to ''be'' this.
* NightmareFuel: When the series went CerebusSyndrome, it went slightly BloodierAndGorier, the villains generally became significantly more wicked and sadistic, and bigger casualties happened. Even with the NarmCharm involved, some scenes can really make you feel unconfortable.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Lady Warcry is introduced as an sympathetic character motivated by AvengingTheVillain. This is never exploited beyond the short flashback to establish her motivations. Arguably justified due to the limited budget.
