This webcomic provides examples of:
- Abusive Parents: Of the jerkass variety. Benjiro openly calls Jennifer a disgrace after she leaves them for good. Jennifer's mother isn't much better either. The first thing she does when the family starts falling apart is blame Jennifer for it, when it's more than clear that it was Benjiro's excessive strictness that drove Jennifer away. And in their appearance in AAL, they're apparently acting like nothing has happened, and even trying to guilt trip Jennifer for leaving them.
- The Ace: Jennifer. Any hobby or activity that she decided to take up, she pursued till she was one of the best in the field. For example, she made the US Olympic swim team, and only backed out because her father objected to it being a distraction from what he wanted her to do.
- Blood Knight: Agent D can get a little...excited during fights.
- Call Forward: This scene, referencing Jennifer's motherly role in AAL.
- Darker and Edgier: Compared to Amazing Agent Luna. In contrast to Luna's high school escapades, Jennifer's story is far more serious.
- Face-Heel Turn:Agent Elyse Douglas was assigned to get close to the count's younger son as a lover. When the count was killed and his older son found to be responsible, Elyse got engaged to the younger one, and later helps his soldiers track down her former teammates.
- Fantasy-Forbidding Father: Jennifer's father, who considered anything that distracted her from taking over the family business, including any extracurricular activities to be 'fantasy'.
- Genki Girl: Kim, Jennifer's university roommate.
- The Glasses Gotta Go: Averted
- Homage: The Volume 2 cover◊ directly homages the iconic cover of Days of Future Past.
- Honor Before Reason: Jennifer and Master Control are trying to escape and Agent L is covering their escape. Instead of taking that opportunity to escape unnoticed, Jennifer fights Agent L to have him answer for treason...which drags on their escape long enough for Agent D to catch up with them... and Agent L ends up dying taking a bullet for Jennifer.
- Hot Librarian: Invoked with Kim, who decides Jennifer can pull of the stern and attractive look.
- Kick the Dog:
- Jennifer, you're not supposed to say to a dying man who just took a bullet for you and whose last (attempted) words were that he loves you, that he doesn't love you and that he doesn't even deserve to say it.
- Jennifer's parents' treatment of her for choosing a path in life other than that of their family business is this to serious levels, and reaches its worst in the "Coming Home" arc.
- Love Makes You Crazy: Vol 2, Crazy enough to take a freelance wetwork job against a head of state. And then there is Agent D. No wonder Jennifer froze over even more before AAL.
- The Makeover: After Jennifer shows up at her door, Kim wheels her around town, buying her new clothes, makeup, taking off her glasses...before deciding she looks better with glasses after all. Which gives her a new idea, and they re-do the makeover with a Hot Librarian in mind. Jennifer comes out looking like a Hot Scientist instead, but they both agree that works too.
- Plucky Comic Relief: Kim, who is the one comedic character in an otherwise serious manga.
