- Awesome Music: The show's opening, "Respect For Dead Man" by Pay money to my Pain.
- Crazy Awesome: Sio as Nobunagun. Can't aim at the enemy from a plane outside a tornado? JUMP INTO THE TORNADO! But not before doing a dance first!
- Die for Our Ship: Adam/Jack The Ripper.
- Les Yay: Sio blushes her way through every conversation with Asao and risks her life to protect her, despite them barely knowing each other. Asao, for her part, seems to find Shio's geekiness adorable. Their interactions come off as very romantic.
- Memetic Mutation: "RESPECT FOR THE DEAD MAN". The OP is a metalcore song, which is rare for an anime. People proceeded to go bonkers with it.
- TENTACLE RAPE!!!!!!!!
- Moe: Sio, in an Adorkable sort of way (when she's not in Ax-Crazy mode).
- Rule of Cool: In-universe. Sio prefers her codename to be Nobunagun rather than Nobunaga because the former sounds cooler.
