* {{Shotacon}}: The infatuation that the Sibyl team feels towards Takashi, the Black Prince (who is 14) can be seen as this.


* UsefulNotes/WorldWarI:[[spoiler: Crane Bahnsteik's]] disgust of the bloodshed is what prompted him to escape from Earth in 1918. He also uses it to justify why humanity hasn't changed at all and needs to be destroyed.

Added DiffLines:

* SpiritualSuccessor: In a way, it's one to the ''[[Anime/NGKnightLamune40 Lamune & 40]]'' series, particularly ''VS Knight Lamune & 40 FIRE'' since it shares much of the same staff (and one [[Creator/SakikoTamagawa voice actor]]) as that show.
