* 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

Added DiffLines:

* {{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.

* ButThouMust: Anzelotte. "For the request which I am about to ask of you, please reply with 'hai' or 'yes'" ("'okay' or 'yes'" in the subs) is how she asks for favors, [[EstablishingCharacterMoment is her first line of dialogue in the show]], and is, for all practical purposes, her CatchPhrase.

Renji keeps ''trying'' to say no, but is always ignored and sent on the mission anyway.


* {{BFG}}: Akari's weapon of choice. Not only are the shells almost too large to carry one-handed, the gun itself can fly. In episode 9, she uses an even bigger one against Bell Zephyr's forces.
