* Masquerade: Required due to the presence of the [[MasqueradeEnforcer World Barrier]]. Both the Wizards and the Emulators have to hide their magical nature via Lunar Caskets and Lunar Robes, which are pocket dimensions that allows people to fight without destroying the surrounding area. The difference is that Lunar Caskets can spread over large areas, draining the life force of the humans and other living creatures. The Wizards fight to prevent that.

* CleanUpCrew: The World Barrier acts as a particularly powerful version of this, being able to RetGone anything that does not conform to reality. It can alter memeories, modify physical records, and even undo physical harm or death, in order to preserve what is considered to be normal.



* MasqueradeEnforcer: The World barrier not only denies easy entering and leaving, but is also provided with power to repair the world. If the “proper appearance of the Earth” which is programmed in the World Barrier, the World Barrier will return Earth’s reality to conform to common sense. For example, even if someone who got involved in the fight between Wizards and Emulators dies, the World Barrier will manipulate people’s memories and records, rewrite traces on the scene, so that this victim’s death is treated as “a death due ordinary causes”. Accordingly to the circumstances, this victim might even be made as if not existing from the beginning so that the outcome called death is canceled. The World Barrier targets both Emulators and Wizards, forcing both to stay hidden.

Renji Hiiragi is one of a chosen group of mages known as the Night Wizards. Their job is to make sure that evil doesn't get into our world, keeping it hidden from the eyes of {{Muggles}}. This is all well and good, except Renji ''really'' doesn't want to do the whole "saving the world" thing, no matter how good he is at it. He has a reputation as "the Falling Man", and is constantly missing class. He wants to make sure that he actually shows up at school and gets work done, but his party's leader Anzelotte just keeps calling him away and not giving him any other choice in the matter.

* GottaCatchThemAll: The seven Jewels of Virtue, a group of {{Cosmic Keystone}}s that are very, very important.
** Unfortunately, [[spoiler:the Jewels turn out to be an UnholyHolySword -- they're fragments of Shaimal's power, and when they're brought together, Shaimal reawakens within Eris.]]

important. Unfortunately, [[spoiler:the Jewels turn out to be an UnholyHolySword -- they're fragments of Shaimal's power, and when they're brought together, Shaimal reawakens within Eris.]]

Added DiffLines:

* KnightTemplar: [[spoiler:Gazer is convinced that humanity deserves to be destroyed and remade because they constantly go to war and destroy the environment. To that end, he created Eris as a vessel for Shaimal so that she will destroy the world.]]


* {{Understatement}}: The {{BFG}} Akari carries is actually a "gunner's broom" (mentioned by Renji when facing Akari), wherein the broom part refers to [[FlyingBroomstick witches' brooms]] as the standard mode of air travel by wizards. Thus, it officially is a vehicle first.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationDistillation: The true relationship between the earth as we know it and the Far Side is omitted from the anime. This leads to a motivation for [[spoiler:The Gazer]], which makes little sense in the metaplot. Likewise, the relationship between [[spoiler:Bell Zephyr and Shaimaru]] is greatly simplified because of the lack of that background information.
* AdaptationDeviation: [[spoiler: Eris as the incarnation of Shaimaru. In the RPG, the Demon Lord Ru=Saifa (clearly a reference to Lucifer) is the projection of Shaimaru's power, while Shaimaru himself sleeps deep in the Far Side.]]


Added DiffLines:

* DemonLordsAndArchdevils: Bell and Lion. Also Paru=Kuru and Azel=Ivris in episode 9.
* DemotedToExtra: In episode 9, among the forces Bell controls, Paru=Kuru silently accepts orders from Bell. In the RPG, however, Paru is a Demon Lord of similar strength to Bell who claims to have a higher rank than her and considers Bell a rival.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Metaplot}}: The anime is embedded into the Metaplot of the RPG, to the point [[spoiler:that the destruction of The Gazer is the cause of the new invaders which are the main difference between the "Night Wizard!" and "Night Wizard! The 2nd Edition".]]


Added DiffLines:

* ThatSoundsFamiliar: Bell Zephyr is written in the original Japanese based on pronunciation and thus very similar to Beelzebub (based on pronunciation), which is made even more obvious by her being the "Queen of Flies". (There are many additional examples in the RPG, showing that the designer likes that trope)


* BadMoonRising: When the Red Moon rises, the invaders from the Far Side appear on earth.



* PhysicalGod: [[spoiler:Kirihito/The Gazer is referred to as a God as is Shaimaru.]] Taking information from the original RPG into account, there is also [[spoiler:Bell Zephyr who is actually a fellow God who joined Shaimaru in his rebellion.]]



* RedSkyTakeWarning: More like Red Moon Take Warning
