6 Hours Left to Support a Troper-Created Project : Personal Space (discuss)

Fan Nickname / Lyrical Nanoha

  • Gaogaigar-tan - Subaru Nakajima of StrikerS, due to the blatant King of Braves references in her transformation sequence and attacks. There is a video of her transformation to the Gaogaigar transformation music here.
  • Loli-Rider - Lutecia, also of of StrikerS, due to her resemblance to Rider of Fate/stay night.
  • Signum Loveless - Signum, Lamia's magnificent Expy.
  • Spaghetti - Jail Scaglietti.
  • Due to her rather serious personality, the professional way she deals with most combat situations, and of course, her Eyepatch, some fans have referred to Cinque as "Little Boss" as a Shout-Out to Big Boss of the Metal Gear series.
  • The White Devil - Takamachi Nanoha herself; sweet, friendly, and very firm believer in vicious asskickings for the sake of love and justice. So named after a scene where an enemy calls her a devil, and she agrees that she is if that is what works. This is combined with her wearing all white, her proficiency at blowing things up that would make a Humongous Mecha proud, and the fact that the original Gundam was nicknamed the White Devil in Mobile Suit Gundam.
    • We also have the "White Devil Incident", where one of her students suffers from a Heroic BSOD and attacks her for real during training. Looking very disappointed, she catches said student's Hard Light blade, drawing blood and incidentally physically supporting her in midair, then blasts her into submission without even using her Device. People started using the nickname seriously after this.
    • StrikerS also has Nanoha sport Blaster Bits: Nanoha got an upgrade from the RX-78-2 Gundam to the RX-93 Nu Gundam, and thus is incontrovertible proof that Nanoha is a Gundam in Magical Girl form.
    • Also known as The Demon Cannon Girl or Magical Cannon Girl, a pun on the name of her genre "mahou shoujo" (Magical Girl): "mahou" (magic/magical arts) and "ma" (demon) "hou" (cannon) are pronounced the same.
    • Similarly, her Catch Phrase "Zenryoku zenkai!" ("Full power!") can be also interpreted to mean "Total destruction!"
    • Some fans have been known to refer to her as "Sailor Beamspam".
    • Over on the Japanese side of the Internet, there's a growing movement to nickname her "Nanorymer" or simply "Hades" (meiou) on account of certain parallels between her fan-depiction and the title robot of Hades Project Zeorymer. This may be partly on account of how Zeorymer in the Super Robot Wars games is considered a Game Breaker.
  • Cardiche, aka the Fatemobile - Fate Testarossa-Harlaown's black convertible in Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS, So named because its black coloration and yellow hubcaps gives it a more than passing resemblance to Fate's Intelligent Device Bardiche. Unusual, because Fate's powers already allow her to travel quickly and because it wasn't (in fact, it didn't even resemble) an actual Ferrari Testarossa.
    • Ditto Hückebikes, the Cool Bikes that the members of the Hückebein family ride in Force.
  • "Befriending" - Yes, the trope of Defeat Means Friendship has been given a nickname, due to it being the primary way Nanoha makes her friends. Used in a sentence; "She befriended the crap out of them."
  • Hayate's Lesbian Army - The 6th Mobile Division; Hayate's in charge, it's an Improbably Female Cast, and there's a whole lotta Les Yay.
  • The Energizer Bunny - the fluffy bunny that appears to be (or more accurately, contains) Vivio's Device in the new ViVid manga, because the cartridge system that many other Devices are equipped with uses cartridges that look a lot like batteries.
  • The Doom Bunny - Vita
  • Zaffy - Zafira. Used in the sound stages by Vivio.
  • Etnagito - Agito, for her resemblance to Etna of Disgaea.
  • Ferret Boy - Yuuno.
  • Deus Ex Maskina - The Wolkenritter' Mysterious Protectors in A's, (the Lieze twins)
  • Emoha - The movie manga version (which is a different continuity from the movie itself) of Nanoha has this nickname due to being more wangsty to some people compared to the original. She's certainly more angsty than the original Nanoha, but the fifth chapter gives her a good reason for that.
  • Ginga Drill Break(er) - for one of Ginga Nakajima's attacks that's reminiscent of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.
  • Heavyarms-tan - Arnage of Hückebein, due to the Reacted form of her Divider being Gatling Guns and missile launchers.
  • With regards to the White Devil Incident, there is also "Signum Punch", or Signum's response to Teana still not getting it. (Compare Falcon Punch; coincidentally, Signum's ultimate attack from A's is Sturmfalkennote .)
  • Reinforce Eins: A way of referring to the first Reinforce, as opposed to Reinforce "Rein" Zwei. Becomes eventually a canon name.
  • The Ace Trio/The TSAB Aces: The collective term for Nanoha, Fate, and Hayate. Note that among the three, Nanoha and Fate are legitimately recognized as Aces in universe, with their titles reflecting this fact (Nanoha being the "Ace of Aces" and Fate being "The Ace of the Navy"). Hayate on the other hand, has admitted to lack the personal combat skills that would make her an asset on the battlefield, thus relegates herself to command duties. Her official in universe title is "The Walking Lost Logia" because almost all of her spells have the destructive power of a nuke.
  • The Materials didn't really had official names in Battle of Aces, so fans came up with Seikou for Material-S, Rai or Raikou or Raijin for Material-L and Yami for Material-D. Until Gears of Destiny came out.
  • Signum Mk. II - Micaiah Chevelle, another swords(wo)man.
  • Chibi Ix for Ixpellia, after her "awakening" in chapter 63.
