* During November 11 and April's debut, they killed the traffickers who were holding [[spoiler:Havoc]]. When the last trafficker begged to be spared, November 11 replied by literally giving him the [[VisualPun cold shoulder]].

* In the second season, [[spoiler:The original Suou died early on and the copy was born two years before the start of the second series. Since, by his own admittance, Shion has no normal human emotions, he did a lot of guess work in creating her. What results is what Shion envisions his sister would be like had she survived, i.e. a Mary Sue. It's not great for her [[TropesAreNotBad but it works for the series.]]]]

to:

* While it may not seem odd at first that Shion and Suou have such different Contractor powers (copying things vs. summoning an antitank rifle), because it's implied that Contractor powers are completely random. Once you learn that Suou is [[spoiler: herself a(n imperfect) copy of Shion]], though, it becomes a bit odd... Until you realize it actually makes perfect sense: Suou's power is simply a low-key version of the original's. Rather than being able to copy ''anything'', she can only copy that one, particular rifle that she saw in Nika's hideout.

* In episode 9, Hei (undercover in a hotel) is talking to Saitou (much more clumsily undercover in the same hotel) about [[FairCop Kirihara]]. There's an exchange along the lines of: "She's beautiful." "Yeah, but once you get to know her, she's actually pretty scary." Now think about [[MrFanservice who one of the]] [[ObfuscatingStupidity participants in]] [[{{Badass}} this conversation]] [[AntiHero is]].

Added DiffLines:

* Why is Yin so silent when she seemingly has many more emotions than a regular doll? [[spoiler: She's strongly implied to be Finnish or descended from Finns due to her real name having a Finnish surname, and many Finnish people are usually [[TheQuietOne really quiet]].]]


* A bit of foreshadowing with Hei's status as a Contractor as shown in the 1st episode. This starts when Hei grabs the head of Louis, the [=DGSE=] agent sent in by Paris to infiltrate [=PANDORA=]. He states in a rebuke to Mao to stop killing him that "They're all the same". [[spoiler:Note that he doesn't count himself as a Contractor in the rebuke, which can tie in to the suggestion that Hei is not the real BK-201.]]
