Devil's Wings (Season 1)
- Crossover: Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha
- Adaptational Retired Badass: In the original Lyrical Nanoha/Triangle Heart 3 canon, Momoko Takamachi has no notable past aside being the mother of the protagonists. Here however, she was Shirou Fuwa's partner and fought alongside him. Her also being a Bad Ass was partly inspired by the Fan Fic Blood That Flows.
- In-Series Nickname: Nanoha is called BeamSpam-chan by The Clan. Her father and mother were respectively known as the Heaven's Blade and the Demon Flash.
- Puppy Love: Kind of expected, putting the half-Sekirei son of an infamous Eroge Protagonist in the same airspace as a very-differently-famous Magical Girl. Said magical girl's usual acquaintances simply confuse the matter further.

Devil's Wings Interlude: Recovery
Synopsis: It has been two years since the war ended, and both Shinta and Yuuno are well on the road to recovery. Irony of all ironies aside now that he has left the wheelchair and can walk again, Shinta faces one final test: can he take to the skies once more? Can he catch up with his Ashikabi, whom has grown tremendously in magic and maturity during his absence?
Devil's Wings Interlude: Sky's Rim
- Crossover: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Devil's Wings Anime/Striker S (Season 4)
Season 4 in two parts: "Force Side" and "Jail Side".RF 6 is a world of intrigue... and hidden among the dissidents, a group of faceless, nameless cyborgs who, impossibly, use magic as well - just like Subaru herself. What is truth? What is a lie? Who is the real enemy, the real danger? What of cyborg sightings on other worlds? Who ordered the excavations on Mid-Childa? And who is the little girl with heterochromic eyes? What of the girl's protector: the steel angel who bares upon her face the distinctive markings of the Saint Kaiser's Royal Guard, and is the last known practitioner of their fighting style - Panzer Kunst.
- Currently there is a pre-season interlude (part one of at least two planned) at FF.net
- Combination Attack: Multiple examples, all in the style of SRW. Shinta and Nanoha pull a Twin Bird Strike on Sette and Deed during the battle for the Saint's Cradle.
- Drill Sergeant Nasty / Veteran Instructor: Shinta and Nanoha, respectively, serve as this for The Squad.
- Ensign Newbie: Teana... and oh, does it plague her.
- Growing Up Sucks: Thoroughly averted. From Hayate and the ever-at-her-side Reinforce, we learn that her "kids" (the Wolkenritter) have "grown up" nicely: Zafira is now a living legend with the Wildlife Preservation Corps, Shamal runs a successful medical practice, Signum is the trusted and loved commander of a whole battalion of TSAB Marines, and Vita... well, she is with the TSAB Engineering Corps. Specifically the E.O.D., and loving every moment of every day.
- Rag Tag Bunch Of Misfits / The Squad: What Hayate gets for her experimental platoon. The only bones thrown her way are the Sergeant Rock and the New Meat.
- Quirky Mini Boss Squad: The Numbers Cyborgs, obviously. Unlike in canon, they're painfully competent. Especially that Otto, Large Ham that he will become as he recalls bits and pieces of the life of the man he was cloned from posthumously... one Lelouch vi Britannia.
Devil's Wings Stratos (Season 5)
- Crossover: Infinite Stratos
- Big Brother Mentor: Shinta, in deep cover as the class's assigned IS mechanic, gets front row seats to the carnage as stated below. And does a lot of face-palming at Ichika's denseness, even as he tries to subtly help Chifyuu prepare her students for what is to come...
- Broken Bird: Tabane Shinonono, underneath her Bunny-Ears Lawyer/Cloudcuckoolander facade. Houki too, but the younger Shinonono has repressed certain memories (and has gone Ice Queen instead). Tabane doesn't have the repression option; she needs to remember, so she can be on the lookout for pawns of the person they both escaped from.
- Deep Cover Agent: Shinta and Nanoha.
- Family Relationship Switcheroo: The Shinonono "sisters" are actually Zardonian (from season 3) refugees, hiding out on an otherwise unremarkable Gregorian-type Un-Administered World. Tabane is Houki's aunt, not sister. Houki's mother is the one who cracked the original Lost Logia, now called the White Knight and attached firmly to Chifyuu. Tabane, every bit as smart and just as deeply involved in the research, carried on her sister's work after said sister's husband murdered her (that is, arranged for an "accident" to happen) and tried to take all the credit when presenting the achievement in Mage Armor technology to the Zardonian Crown. Said bastard of a ex-husband is the season's Big Bad.
- Magitek: The secret power source behind Infinite Stratos is the pilot's capability for magic. No magical ability? No piloting an IS. This particular Un-Administered World is a bit of an oddity: like the Strike Witches world, every magic user born is female... Tabane went oops. Sure, with the number of magically capable children born each year rising, it was only a matter of time before magic was acknowledged publicly. Unfortunately, her jump-starting that by introducing the IS... has completely skewed the gender bias toward female superiority. Wait, that boy...!
- The Only One: Ichika Orimura, first magically capable boy born on his world. Thus, the only boy in a school full of girls. No, said school is for IS instruction, not harem hijinks! Oh, wait... right.
- Rag Tag Bunch Of Misfits / The Squad: What Chifyuu has to start with, and what she is trying to forge her little band of six into. They resist it ever step of the way... completely unintentionally. Damn teenagers.
- Secret Identity: Chifyuu as the White Knight.
- The Dragon to the Big Bad is an Gender Swap Expy of Ali Al-Saachez. Whose Zardon-made IS has had all restrictions removed. That means a shield point value in the thousands, and if left undamaged for several seconds... it regenerates. Then again, when the world governments finally publicize the fact that their world is under threat of inter-dimensional invasion, Tabane remotely removes the same restrictions from all IS build around the "cores" she manufactured. So it's not the tech that makes this psycho Dragon-lady so dangerous... as she shouts to Chifyuu/White Knight:"You... You're actually worth killing! Let's get it on!"
- Veteran Instructor: Chifyuu, obviously. Also, yes, Nanoha is back at it once more! Only, she's working mostly off screen, until the very end when Chifyuu's student squadron meet their IS-equipped JSDF counterparts. And proceed to stomp the bad guys together.
Devil's Wings Silver Cross (Season 6)

Devil's Wings Interlude: The Blade Within - Glory and Hope

The growling and grinding teeth of upset fangirls abruptly shift to gasps of dismay, when Claus icily challenges Vivio to a Strike Arts duel and brutally trounces her. His final words: "You are not worthy of those (Kaiser) eyes."Ok, sure. Vivio knows she's not the second coming of Sankt Kaiser Olivie Sägebrecht. So what's this jerk's deal, anyway? Time to knuckle down, train hard, and find out.First, however... she needs some really good teachers. "Papa, can Alita-ni-san and I go visit Mahora on Earth-97? I want to ask Negi-ojisan if he'll take me as a student."Akasha help us all.
