* {{Deuteragonist}} / SupportingProtagonist: Although the series centers around the titular Sky Dancers, the underlying plot seems to all be about Skyla coming to terms with her husband's death and being able to move on and be an effective leader.
* MoralEventHorizon: Skyclone crosses it when, after killing his brother, he uses the ''anniversary of his death'' to lure Skyla into a trap.
* NarmCharm
* TearJerker: Despite the {{narm}}, Skyler's death, as its impact on Skyla is seen throughout the entire series.
** "Lonely Heart" goes so far as to have her sleep-dancing with a ghostly image of him on the anniversary of his death; it later saves her from Skyclone.
