YMMV: Qin's Moon

  • Ear Worm: Due to the series's rather limited soundtrack, a lot of the music can become this.
  • Foe Yay: Wei Zhuang and Ge Nie, as Wei Zhuang is absolutely devoted to fighting against Ge Nie and vows that only he should be the person who should kill him.
    • Likewise, Dao Zhi likes to mess with White Phoenix and Zhang Han. It doesn't help that official wallpapers and specials like to show White Phoenix and Dao Zhi off competing with each other.
  • Ho Yay: Zhang Liang and Yan Lu, it's almost hard not to see it. The many moments of them having long conversations with each other heavily shows that Zhang Liang trusts Yan Lu the most, Yan Lu almost always knows whenever Zhang Liang is up to something and Zhang Liang would usually confess without a second thought, and finally when Fu Nian finds out that Shaoyu and Tian Ming are wanted criminals and are hiding in the confucius school, Yan Lu tries to take all of the blame for Zhang Liang. Fu Nian then threatens to punish Yan Lu by expelling him from the school, Zhang Liang starts showing a lot of concern and then attempts to argue back to him on why they should not be punished despite Yan Lu trying to tell him to stop.
  • Launcher of a Thousand Ships: White Phoenix, he has been shipped with Chilian, Shao Siming, Nong yu, Wei Zhuang, Ink Crow, Dao Zhi, etc.
  • Portmanteau Couple Name: For just about every ship:
    • Ge Nie/Duanmu Rong is Nie Rong
    • Gao Jianli/Snowlady (Xue Nv) is Gao Xue
    • Tianming/Gao Yue is Ming Yue
    • Shaoyu/Shi Lan is Yu Lan
    • Wei Zhuang/Chilian is Wei Lian
    • Zhang Liang/Yan Lu is Liang Yan
    • Ink Crow/White Phoenix is Mo Feng/Ink Phoenix
    • And so on...
  • Tear Jerker: Duanmu Rong's Heroic Sacrifice.
    • Ink Crow and Nong yu's deaths
  • Uncanny Valley: A lot of scenes in Season 1 has really stiff animation and the characters have dead faces that do not match with their lines. Thankfully season 1 has been remastered with season 2 graphics, where the animation has improved and the characters express more emotions.
