* AndManGrewProud: It's never stated exactly why [[spoiler:the Heavenly Gods decided to purge mankind]], but Sonoko compares it to the story of the Tower of Babel, while Hinata was told by the Shinju that it was due to mankind's "impudence".



* AttackItsWeakPoint:
** While their attacks can injure a Vertex's body (and must do enough damage to immobilize them), they'll regenerate from it; in order to actually destroy a Vertex, the Heroes have to surround it and pray to make it expose its core. However, merely exposing the core doesn't make it all ''that'' vulnerable - they have to do damage the hard way, and the cores don't make it easy for them at all.
** Togo's Mankai form in has enough [[BeamSpam raw firepower]] to expose a Vertex's core without the need for sealing. [[spoiler:Karin's Mankai form is so powerful that it can destroy Vertex in a single hit, core and all, [[GlassCannon at the cost of being extremely fragile.]]]]

** Togo owns by far the largest chest of the cast and carries [[MoreDakka enough]] [[FriendlySniper firepower]] to completely shift the tide of the battle in the second episode. Later material demonstrates that she's also very physically tough to boot.



** Togo doesn't lose to Fu in the breast-size department, and carries [[MoreDakka enough]] [[FriendlySniper firepower]] to completely shift the tide of the battle in the second episode.



* DisabilitySuperpower:
** The Hero System is shown to compensate for any of its users' disabilities in battle, demonstrated by Togo's Hero outfit which includes four ribbons which allow her to move around without using her legs. [[spoiler:When Karin performs her consecutive Mankais in Episode 11, she gains braces that support every part of her body that she loses, and when Sonoko loses her eye to the Sange in [[=WaSuYu=], a similar ribbon grows underneath it.]] The official website revealed that these supports are called "Gimmicks."


Added DiffLines:

** The curse of the Heavenly Gods is able to negate this protection. When Fu [[spoiler:is hit by a car]] in Episode 3 of ''Hero Chapter'', Inugami attempts to block it but its barrier is burned away.

** Mebuki dual-wields her bayonetted rifles in the climax of ''[=KuMeYu=]''.

** The Washio Sumi chapter has noticeably more fanservice and focuses more on the girls' assets when they transform and showing them naked in an onsen (albeit with CensorSteam) in one episode. Considering they're still in grade school, it's pretty weird.
