* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Mamori's been captured and brought to the Labyrinth of Amala! But no fear, there's a secret passageway in that was used by LOL Ranger to infiltrate the place and pester Lucifer back during the Pantheonic Rebellion...oh wait, Lucifer [[RealityEnsues closed the passageway and did a thorough search for more vulnerabilities after that little debacle.]] Oops: looks like Miss Virgin's staying put for the time being.

* LowerDeckEpisode: When the story's not focused on Mirei, the POV is on another group trying to find her made up of minor characters from ''VDM'': [[LadyLooksLikeADude Akira]], Kasumi, [[ShrinkingViolet Hibiki]], [[AlphaBitch Charlotte]], [[ThoseTwoGuys Kouzuki and Miyasato]] and Saijima. They're about as ragtag a bunch of misfits as you'll ever get, and without their powers they're forced to do increasingly [[CrazyAwesome crazy things to avoid]] Apollyon's forces.

* WardrobeMalfunction: Cornered by a very angry Lady J, 'Loki', a member of Ensiferum tries a final ploy: [[GoLookAtTheDistraction telling her one of 'them' is popping lose.]] J's response?

* FreudianExcuse: Commander Bankwell's Extar daughter was cured and freed from Siren, but was horribly bullied regardless when she returned to the outside world, culminating in a group of kids [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil insisting on seeing her Arms form...]] Her subsequent collapse into {{Hikkikomori}}-dom sent Bankwell over the DespairEventHorizon and convinced him that the infected cannot ever truly be accepted back into normal society, and he's bound and determined to keep them 'safe' on the islands. Mirei and Mamori's WideEyedIdealist attitude comes across to him as blithe and short-sighted, and it has resulted in [[ItsPersonal a personal grudge against them.]]

Added DiffLines:

* NamedWeapons: Lorelei's Infected had a custom of naming their Drives, though we only learn what Bankwell's daughter's was called: '[[SphereOfDestruction Catastrophe.]]'


* BlessedWithSuck: Hinted at with Nimi, but Bankwell's daughter proves that not every Extar gets a nice, clean Arm-type drive. There's all kinds of Drives, including ones that cause the Extar to ''generate catastrophic explosions upon orgasm.'' She reconstituted herself after Driving: her girlfriend, who had been the one to Awaken her, [[LudicrousGibs didn't.]]

She reconstituted herself after Driving: was fine afterwards: her girlfriend, who had been the one to Awaken her, [[LudicrousGibs didn't.[[ReducedToDust wasn't.]]


* HiddenDepths: PlayedForLaughs: Saijima's girlfriend in''Anime/ValkyrieDriveMermaid'' has no lines, characterization, or even a name given in-show, and [[TheQuietOne she barely gets any lines in the story]]. But in a moment that comes [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment right the f*ck out of nowhere]], she gets [[BerserkButton surprisingly angry]] when Charlotte makes a joke about how [[Film/TheWizardOfOz she doesn't think they're in Kansas anymore]] when they get dragged into the Pantheon. She gets right in Charlotte's face, snapping that it's [[BeamMeUpScotty "I have a FEELING we're not in Kansas anymore"]], [[Franchise/TheEmpireStrikesBack it's "No, I am your father", not "Luke, I am your father"]], and [[WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants it's ORLOK, not Nosferatu!]] There's a moment of stunned, confused silence, and then Saijima jabs a thumb at her girlfriend and whispers that she was majoring in film studies before the whole Mermaid debacle.

Added DiffLines:

* AbusiveParents: Despite his proclaimed love for his daughter, Bankwell treats her like absolute crap.


* AxCrazy: Bankwell may appear [[TheStoic ever-calm]] on the surface, but one look at his eyes makes it clear that he's most certainly ''not'': his stoicism is a shallow mask, born from just barely managing to repress the psychotic hatred he near-constantly feels for everyone and everything. Even Mirei freezes up for a moment when she sees the murderous insanity in his gaze.

His glare is ''that'' venomous.


* YouWouldntShootMe: Bankwell gets a moment like this where he's right in Mirei's face and dares the supersoldier to attack him. [[RealityEnsues She decks him with enough force to send him sprawling.]] [[MadeOfIron She very quickly realizes]] [[UnstoppableRage it was the wrong move.]]
-->'''Bankwell:''' '''''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis C! 7!!!!!]]''''' ''[ExtremeMeleeRevenge ensues]''

Added DiffLines:

* TranquilFury: Mirei after seeing Bankwell hit his daughter. She [[PunchCatch catches his follow-up strike]], glaring into his eyes with a blank expression.
-->'''Mirei:''' Mamori, I'm sorry: I know you hate violence, but I am going to kill this man.


* SuppressedRage: Imagine a huge metal tanker filled with a highly explosive material. Now imagine the tanker is constantly rattling, creaking, spewing smoke and sparks, and letting off an aura of singular, overpowering dread: if you step wrong around it, send the wrong vibration through the ground, it will explode in an instant and level everything and everyone around it. Heck, even that wouldn't be needed necessarily: the man could just ''go'' at any time. That's Bankwell: the man is insanely, murderously angry ''all the time'', and his efforts to keep himself from lashing out at in a frothing rage only serve to underline how unstable he is.
