** [[spoiler: It just keeps getting worse for her, as episode 4 has her witness the tragic consequences of her naivety, and episode 6 has her betrayed by her entire court. By Episode 10, all of her closest advisors at the start of the show except Leila are dead.]]

Added DiffLines:

* EverybodyLaughsEnding: [[spoiler: The final scene has Yuki and Stella sharing a laugh with each other.]]

* QuantityVsQuality: Grandiga has Quantity, Harlant has Quality. Both sides are aware that this trope is in effect and their strategies take it in consideration. [[spoiler:Quantity is winning the day, however.]]

Added DiffLines:

* BaitAndSwitchCredits: Almost none of the scenes in the opening are even ''possible'' by the end of episode 2.

Added DiffLines:

* AnyoneCanDie: Starting with [[spoiler:Joshua]] in episode 2, the show repeatedly proves no named character is safe.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Nanomachines}}: [[spoiler:The source of the Chrars seemingly perpetual energy turns out to be nanomachines from when the planet was terraformed. And they're running out.]]


* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:Double-subverted. Joshua jumps in to save Yuni from a squad of enemy mechs, and tries to sacrifice himself by collapsing the tunnel they're in, but she drags him out at the last second. Shortly afterward, however, it turns out that he died of the seemingly-minor injury he received in the battle.]]

** Played straight later when [[spoiler:Izana, instead of escaping the occupied palace,]] transmits some top-secret intel to Yuki, knowing that the enemy will surely kill him for his trouble (which they do). Just to up the ante, this happens during an argument over whether to allow Lune and Yuni to embark on a suicide mission that they volunteered for.


Added DiffLines:

* ShootTheShaggyDog: [[spoiler:Episode 7]] entirely revolves around one side-character, who appears to get a happy ending of sorts, only to [[ADeathInTheLimelight die suddenly]] via an almost-literal BusCrash.

Added DiffLines:

* BirthDeathJuxtaposition: [[spoiler:Izana dies on the same day his second child is born.]]


Added DiffLines:

* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: [[spoiler:Izana is told to his face by the occupying Grandiga forces that he's no longer needed. And decides to go out sending vital war information to the rebels.]]

Added DiffLines:

* FatalFamilyPhoto: [[spoiler: Izana dies holding a photo of his wife and daughter, but not before sending Yuki vital information.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ArmorPiercingQuestion: Huey asks this to Stella [[spoiler: in response to Pierce's death]] at the end of Episode 7:
--> '''Huey''': [[spoiler: At times like this, you can't do much but smile. Right?]]


* SkywardScream: [[spoiler:Yuki, following Joshua's death.]]



* TheUnfavorite: As revealed in episode 7, [[spoiler:Stella was adopted by a family happy to have her...until they had a biological child of their own. She quickly became regarded as just another mouth to feed and eventually ran away.]]



* SkywardScream: [[spoiler:Yuki, following Joshua's death.]]

Added DiffLines:

* BreatherEpisode: Episode 7 focuses on Stella and her squad setting up a farewell party for [[spoiler: Pierce, who has been discharged due to his injuries in episode 6]], and then the party itself. The episode contains quite possibly the most comedy in the whole show, and even with a few morose moments of reflection, the whole tone is much more lighthearted and hopeful than the other episodes. [[spoiler: Which makes it all the more shocking and heartbreaking when this is [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] by Pierce's sudden death at the end of the episode.]]
