!The anime
* AdaptationDisplacement: Mostly played straight, except among gaming communities.
* ClothesMakeTheSuperman: In second season, Fatima is seen trying to use her "staff" without her usual adventurer outfit. It looked like a very bad firecracker. At the end of the episode she changed her clothes and got back her magic powers. Is Charisma boost that important for sorceress?
* HeyItsThatVoice: Gilgamesh (Gil) is voiced by Creator/TomokazuSeki, who also voiced another [[FateStayNight Gilgamesh]]. Both are based on the legendary Sumerian King, the latter far more than the former.
* MartyStu: Jil in the first episode fantasy is blatant parody of one.
* MoralEventHorizon: [[spoiler:Neeba, either since his betrayal in season 1, or his killing Henaro at the end of season 2.]]
* PuritySue: Both Kaaya and Jil both can be argued as fitting the role, with Kaaya doubling as a RelationshipSue for Jil.
* TearJerker: Done in episode 7
!The game
* AmericansHateTingle: Or more specifically, Americans Hate GuideDangIt Moments.
* ThatOneLevel: Level 13. It contains a treasure necessary to beat the game, that can only be obtained by killing all the {{Teleport Spam}}ming enemies on the floor. [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg Also the slimes.]] And this is assuming [[GuideDangIt you even knew what to do]].
