* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: YukiKajiura delivers yet again.
* DieForOurShip: Limelda, for the Madlax/Vanessa shippers. And Vanessa, for Madlax/Limelda shippers... [[TooSoon oh,]] [[DroppedABridgeOnHim wa]][[ClimacticBattleResurrection it.]]
* FoeYay: Limelda vs. Madlax. Yeah, right.
* LesYay: Plenty as the series goes on, most noticeably between Vanessa and Madlax (and to a lesser extent, Elenore). Limelda's [[PsychoLesbian obsession]] with Madlax also borders on FoeYay.
* MoeMoe: Madlax oh so much.
* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs: Actually, it was, if you count alcohol as a drug. The director came up with many of the plot twists while drunk. Surprisingly, they still make sense if you watch it while sober.
* TheWoobie: Most of the main characters.
