* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: YukiKajiura delivers yet again.
* DieForOurShip: Limelda, for the Madlax/Vanessa shippers. And Vanessa, for Madlax/Limelda shippers... [[TooSoon oh,]] [[DroppedABridgeOnHim wa]][[ClimacticBattleResurrection it.]]
** ShipToShipCombat
* FoeYay: Limelda vs. Madlax. Limelda even goes as far as to say "I love you, Madlax." during Episode 20 when [[spoiler: she's about to snipe Madlax]].
* LesYay: Plenty as the series goes on, most noticeably between Vanessa and Madlax (and to a lesser extent, Elenore). Limelda's [[PsychoLesbian obsession]] with Madlax also borders on FoeYay.
** Madlax sees herself as the PrinceCharming that's supposed to protect the Princess (who's Vanessa in this case) during Episode 12.
** When Elenore reveals that she's [[spoiler: accompanying Margaret to Gazth-Sonika]] in Episode 17, Margaret smiles and says "I love you." to Elenore. The word Margaret uses here is ''daisuki'' which is a very strong word in Japanese for liking someone in that way.
* {{Moe}}: Madlax oh so much.
* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs: Actually, it was, if you count alcohol as a drug. The director came up with many of the plot twists while drunk. Surprisingly, they still make sense if you watch it while sober.
* TheWoobie: Most of the main characters.
