* 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 goes through CerebusSyndrome, it gets slightly BloodierAndGorier, the villains generally become significantly more wicked and sadistic, and bigger casualties happen. Even with the NarmCharm involved, some scenes can really make you feel uncomfortable.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Lady Warcry is introduced as a sympathetic character motivated by AvengingTheVillain. This is never exploited beyond the short flashback to establish her motivations. Arguably justified due to the limited budget.
