Added DiffLines:

* VillainExitStageLeft: OncePerEpisode, the current antagonist will have a short skirmish with the heroes before randomly running off into the distance.


** CG is used to animate [[spoiler:the Lahmu]] in certain shots, [[TropesAreNotBad but they're supposed to stand out unnaturally]].

Added DiffLines:

* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler:Gorgon]] undergoes one of these in episode 15 due to Ana's presence. Justified since [[spoiler:her past selves]] are a major TraumaButton for her, plus the fact that Ana is wielding a scythe capable of [[spoiler:killing immortal beings]].
* VillainousFriendship: [[spoiler:Although she was originally a means to an end for him, Kingu genuinely liked Gorgon and sympathized with her, and was extremely angry with the heroes for killing her before he could arrive to aid her in battle. Her death gave him exactly what he wanted (Tiamat's awakening), but he wanted to use other means of breaking the enchantment that didn't require her to die.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Episode 15 shows a flashback of [[spoiler:Gorgon]] devouring her sisters, complete with a shot recreating a CG of the same memory from ''VisualNovel/FateHollowAtaraxia''.


Added DiffLines:

** In episode 15 the heroes come across a [[spoiler:Lahmu]] that is acting differently from the rest (specifically, it is remaining passive while all others are brutally aggressive). This tips off Fujimaru that something isn't right [[spoiler:and helps him to realize that it's actually Siduri]].


Added DiffLines:

* WasOnceAMan: [[spoiler: The Lahmu are often created using humans. This is shown to have happened to Siduri in episode 15.]]


Added DiffLines:

* WhamEpisode: Episode 15 serves as this. [[spoiler:Gorgon's death doesn't lead to victory within the Singularity, but instead serves as the catalyst for things going FromBadToWorse. Merlin's Servant container is destroyed, Tiamat awakens, and the Lahmu descend upon Mesopotamia to begin killing the people.]]


Added DiffLines:

* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: [[spoiler:Kingu gets stabbed InTheBack by the Lahmu. With Tiamat awake, he's no longer needed.]]

Added DiffLines:

* InfantImmortality: Despite the very gruesome turn taken in episode 15 after Tiamat's awakening, it takes great pains to avoid children explicitly harmed by the Lahmu, with the protagonists shown saving a girl right before she gets stabbed.


** Episode 15 shows Ana having a vision of her sisters, [[spoiler:Stheno and Euryale]].

** Episode 15 shows Ana having a vision of her [[spoiler:her sisters, [[spoiler:Stheno Stheno and Euryale]].Euryale. We also get a glimpse of a doglike monster while Gilgamesh is explaining the Beasts, which is almost certainly Beast IV, Primate Murder.]]


Added DiffLines:

* KnightOfCerebus: [[spoiler:The arrival of Tiamat turns the series from a relatively lighthearted romp with plenty of comedic moments into a deadly serious battle for survival with multiple deaths as the cast struggles to win every step of the way.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Episode 15 shows [[spoiler:Stheno and Euryale being eaten by Gorgon and a never seen before Beast that might be Primate Murder based on it's tail]].

Added DiffLines:

** The scene explaining what was written on the Tablet of Destiny was cut since it was about [[spoiler:Goetia's motivations]].


** Enkidu/[[spoiler:Kingu]] is one as while he does desire the end of humanity, he sees no reason for them to suffer in their last moments. [[spoiler:He releases children caught by the Demonic Beasts and is disgusted by the Lahmu's actions

* CallBack: A heartbreaking one, [[spoiler:Ristuka and Ishtar know that Siduri was turned into a Lahmu when she gives the raise the white flag gesture that Ishtar talked about in episode 2]].



* DarkestHour: [[spoiler:Episode 15 has the real Tiamat awaken after Gorgon's death at the price of both Ana and Merlin dying. And she brings with her the Lahmu, monsters that run on ForTheEvulz who are slaughtering humans wholesale.]]



* TheGlovesComeOff: [[spoiler:Moments before the battle against Gorgon, Ana undoes the seal on her Divinity and activates her Mystic Eyes, revealing her true identity is Medusa.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Episode 15 shows Ana having a vision of her sisters, [[spoiler:Stheno and Euryale]].


Added DiffLines:

* ForTheEvulz: [[spoiler:The Lahmu engage in senseless butchery of humans, and tend to do so in methods as painful as possible. Not only that, but in Eridu, the Lahmu force humans to fight each other to the death for their own amusement before murdering the winner. There's no real reason for this other than sheer enjoyment of making humans suffer.]]


Added DiffLines:

** Ishtar and [[spoiler:Quetzalcoatl]] also engage in this upon watching the [[spoiler:Lahmu wantonly murder humans.]] What they witness is enough to piss them off into holding nothing back.


Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler:Ana]] performs one in episode 15. [[spoiler:She sacrifices herself so that she can slay Gorgon.]]


Added DiffLines:

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler:The shock of death from the heroes defeating Gorgon was enough to rouse Tiamat from her enchanted slumber. To make matters worse, she strained Merlin's Servant container into breaking in the process, removing him from the equation.]]


Added DiffLines:

* WouldHurtAChild: [[spoiler:The Lahmu are shown ([[GoryDiscretionShot sort of]]) murdering a child who had been hiding. This further hammers home just how vicious they are.]]


* {{Geas}}: The Three Goddess Alliance have an oath that prevents each of the goddess from directly attacking or spreading information about the others at the price of complete annihilation. [[spoiler:The First Hassan saw it necessary to cut the Ereshkigal's oath when she had a HellFaceTurn and Quetzalcoatl being manipulated into breaking it lead to her losing half of her strength]].

* BoltOfDivineRetribution: Ishtar makes the mistake of bragging that she's the most beautiful goddess between herself and [[spoiler:Ereshkigal]] while also calling the latter out as a "goddess of rot and decay" ''while on the deity's own home turf''. She gets a bolt of divine lightning for it so bad it knocks her out and leaves her smoking while the gate that asked the question of the most beautiful goddess calls her a nitwit.
