A Hell of a Time: Where the H.N. Elly-induced suicide cult in Episode 4 believes they are going.
Affectionate Parody: The members of the Mahou Troupe seem to be fans of the original series, hence why they're abridging it.
The Alcoholic: Mami, if the facts that she was more worried about scoring booze than living after her car crash and that she sold her soul to Kyubey for booze are any indication.
Likely Junko as well, given Madoka's first conclusion from her Episode 1 ramblings was that she was brushing her teeth with alcohol again and she was definitely drunk in Episode 3 after returning home from watch the Sex and the City movie.
Hitomi: (to Madoka and Sayaka) I'm off to a popular party. I'm out, nerds.
Ambiguously Bi: Sayaka. She keeps trying to get into Kyousuke's pants, but loves attention to/from girls as well.
Abomination Accusation Attack: Starting in Episode 2, Madoka begins questioning the details about the whole magical girl schtick. Mami responds by accusing Madoka of smoking, with Sayaka going along with it for whatever reason. Turned Up to Eleven in Episode 3, when Kyubey joins in and Madoka starts being accused of shooting up heroin (among other things).
The Ace: Mami even lampshades it in the second episode.
Mami: Hi, I'm Mami.
(cue Mami using Unlimited Musket Works)
Mami: I'm awesome and I kick ass and I'm probably better than you at everything.
Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Madoka and Sayaka both have shades of this. An example from Madoka is from Episode 3, when the two are walking past bike racks:
You know, when I was young I've never had a bike before. It kind of scarred me as a child, not having a bike- OH LOOK, BIKES!
Berserk Button: Kyousuke hates classical music since his parents forced him to learn the violin, instead of letting him become an Idol Singer.
Blood Knight: Mami finds fighting even more invigorating than drag racing ever was.
Confession Cam: Introduced in Episode 4 for each character present in the story at that point. This includes a headless Mami, who has to resort to Talking with Signs.
Conveniently an Orphan: Lampshaded by Madoka in Episode 4 regarding Mami's fate and the fact that there won't be any close relatives or friends who don't know the truth looking for her, making it easy plot-wise to kill her off.
We here at the Mahou Troupe strongly discourage you from actually using this method to bring an end to all your enemies, and encourage you to seek out more constructive forms of problem solving. Like talking to an adult. Or therapy. Yes, even if the enemies in question actually bought theXbox One.
Driving Stick: Mami can (she used to drag race until her Ferrari got totaled). Homura can't (to put it mildly). Kyoko says she can but the scene is over (to her consternation) before she can elaborate.
A Fate Worse Than Death: Madoka and Sayaka are shocked that Mami chooses to save the suicidal woman because she has no Internet access. Life is not worth living without Internet access. Mami tells them to shut up because her parents are dead and she has no Internet access, either. They still seem to see it as a good deed, though the woman disagrees when she wakes up.
Felony Misdemeanor: The suicidal woman in the second episode jumps off a building because she has no Internet access.
Madoka mistakes being pulled into H.N. Elly's barrier as Hell, but remains calm and notes that "Hell" is different than what she imagined it would be. Then "What Makes You Beautiful" starts up and Madoka completely loses it.
Flat "What.": Homura pulls one in the first episode, when she asks Madoka if she values her life and Madoka's response is a casual "Not really."
Madoka several times when other charaters insinuate she's smoking/doing drugs right in front of them when she clearly isn't.
Freezeframe Bonus: If you look closely at the board in Episode 4, when a diagram of Mami's decapitation appears, you can see - just below Mami - a thumbs-up symbol drawn in purple, signed "H".
Genre Savvy: Madoka, when confronted by Kyubey while searching for the creepy man who is promising candy.
Madoka: Oh my God, a stuffed anim—Oh my God, you're the creepy man, aren't you?
Greek Chorus: Kyoko's post-episode ranting ends up being this, even after Kyoko gets introduced in the main story. Mami's head joins for Episode 4.
HEADDESK: When discussing what makes Madoka such a chick-magnet, Sayaka does this when she suggests pigtails, and realises her hair is too short for pigtails.
Idol Singer: Kyousuke was forced into playing violin by his parents. His real dream is being... an UtaPri.
I'm Standing Right Here: Hitomi, when Sayaka and Madoka employ a Stage Whisper to tell the audience that only they can see Kyuubey. Hitomi (referred to as "that dumb bitch") is not amused.
Incredibly Lame Pun: When Sayaka and Madoka first discover telepathy, Kyubey calls them "my hos". The thing is, he could also have been saying the word "Mahous" which is part of the Japanese word for "Magical Girl".
All those head-related puns in Episode 3. Mami and Sayaka roll off a bunch of them at the beginning of the episode and pepper more throughout, even after Mami bites it after being bitten. Madoka doesn't understand where they came from all of a sudden.
Lemony Narrator: The narrator for the episodes is rather snarky, especially when it comes to characters in-story doing the job for her.
Locked Out of the Loop: Madoka is the only one who doesn't get why does everybody keep making head puns about Mami. Including Mami herself.
Meta Girl: Madoka spends the first part of the second episode lampshading Mami's costume and later asks several questions about the nature of magical girls, like "Why is it called a Soul Gem?", "What happens if the Soul Gem isn't shiny anymore?" and "Why do we need Grief Seeds?" Mami's response is to accuse Madoka of smoking/taking drugs.
No More For Us: Sayaka after she and Madoka stumble into Gertrud's labyrinth: "That's it, Madoka. As of right now, we swear off the Doritos - deal?"
Episode 4, Sayaka: Time for the A-B-Cs of Justice!
Reading Stage Directions Out Loud: Homura begins all her lines in her conversation with Madoka during their walk in Episode 4 by literally stating what mood she's supposed to be in (example: "Ironically, Gee, that sounds familiar.") while keeping her usual monotone.
In Episode 3, Mami and Homura have a discussion about the PRNDL.
Mami appearing in random pictures she wasn't really in during the montage at the end of Episode 3 is quite similar to a famous Tumblr blog called Rude Rapunzel, where a photo of a singing Rapunzel from Tangled appears in various scenes from Disney movies.
The two nurses talking about Sayaka in Episode 4 speak in a robotic monotone akin to GLaDOS. Later on, a Witch-kissed raving Hitomi goes rambling on about burning to death where "they will be baked, and there will be cake."
Madoka: Why can I never get any comments on deviantART? No one seems to notice my amazing artwork and all its deep complexities. These pictures represent the truth of my whole being, and a reflection of the universe!
Kyubey (slowly): I think it's because you suck.
Soundtrack Dissonance: After the second episode was taken down due to copyright issues regarding the theme song, the team announced that the opening theme in every episode that gets taken down in the future will be replaced with smooth contemporary jazz. Since they didn't change the opening's animation at all, it fits about as well as you'd expect.
Kyoko seems to be the same way towards Sayaka in some of the promo videos.
Sayaka towards Kyosuke - he's changed rooms several times (by Episode 4, it's literally Up to Eleven) because Sayaka keeps showing up and has no idea who she is. Also, she observes him through binoculars from the casino across from the hospital.
Suddenly Shouting: Madoka and Mami end up doing this after another round of drug-use accusations in Charlotte's labyrinth.
Sayaka: (On Kyubey) I say we should listen to the totally evil- er, no I'm sorry - totally not evil; he is not evil, or suspicious, at all - alien space ferret.
Homura "I'm not writing a doujinshi of me and you [Madoka] getting it on..." Akemi is prone to this.
Take That, Audience!: After the end of Episode 3 proper, Madoka (who is voiced by the main driver of the whole project Chiikaboom) comes out and tries to explain why each episode has taken so long to come out, only to be driven to tears by impatient fans and their complaints. Kyouko then bursts in and delivers a major tongue-lashing at said fans, noting the amount of time and effort needed on Director Chii's part for something that earns no money.
Sayaka (to Homura): Don't make me get my fire extinguisher, because I will blow you!...with-with the fire extinguisher. That-that came out wrong.
There's also whoever texted "I want to be your knight in shining armpit" to Hitomi in Episode 1.
Theme Music Emo Up: Homura's theme music finally advances to the second set of measures of Linkin Park's "Crawling" when Madoka says she'll never forget Homura in Episode 4. Fans who already know the original source material will understand why.
