created, off to save the world through the power of [[HaremGenre harems]]. But he better be careful, because the nefarious [[BigBad Isaac Wescott]], Director of Deus.Ex.Machina Industries, seeks the power of the Spirits for himself so he can make a new world.



* BigBad: From Volume 5 onwards, the series gets a proper Big Bad who isn't a [[MonsterOfTheWeek Spirit of the Week]] or an AntiVillain (aka Kurumi). Introducing; Sir Isaac Ray Peram Westcott, and his [[TheDragon Dragon]]; Ellen Mira Mathers.

* BigBad: From Volume 5 onwards, the series gets a proper Big Bad who isn't a [[MonsterOfTheWeek Spirit of the Week]] or an AntiVillain (aka Kurumi). Introducing; [[WhiteHairBlackHeart Sir Isaac Ray Peram Westcott, Wescott]], [[CorruptCorporateExecutive managing director of Deus Ex Machina Industries]], and creator of the Spirits who caused the war between them and mankind. He plans to use their power to [[AGodAmI become a god]] and [[InTheirOwnImage create a new world in his [[TheDragon Dragon]]; Ellen Mira Mathers.image]], purely ForTheEvulz. While he was relatively out of the picture for the first four volumes or so (the entirety of the anime's first season minus his involvement with Mana and Origami's new weapons), once he makes his appearance, it's made clear that he harbours ill intent towards the Spirits, and slowly overrides the story's initial ExcusePlot.


* CodeName: The AST, DEM, and sometimes Ratatoskr assign these towards the Spirits. "Princess" for Tohka, "Hermit" for Yoshino, "Nightmare" for Kurumi, "Efreet" for [[spoiler:Kotori]], "Berserk" for the Yamai twins, "Diva" for Miku, "Witch" for Natsumi, "Angel" for [[spoiler:Origami (or "Devil" when Inversed), "Sister" for Nia, "Zodiac" for Mukuro]]. "Phantom" is given to the enigmatic being that appears infrequently in the story. ''VisualNovel/DateALiveRinneUtopia'' also adds "Ruler" for [[spoiler:Rinne's Spirit Form]].

* TimeyWimeyBall: After the events of the StableTimeLoop are fulfilled, [[spoiler:Kurumi (in the present) and Shidou (in the past) seem at a loss for what they can do.]] [[spoiler:Then, a Shidou from eleven minutes into Shidou's future appears to Kurumi and gives her an idea that she relays to Shidou in the past. Shidou finds past Kurumi and gets sent back in time again. Despite his efforts during this second chance, he runs out of options and decides the only course of action is to shove Origami's parents out of the way of the energy blast that would kill them. He succeeds in doing that but is hit by it instead.]] [[spoiler:At this point, he's stepping on his own timeline - once, by saving Origami's parents in a way that interferes with him saving a younger Origami from a collapsing building in a few seconds; and, twice, by never being the Shidou who returns to the present Kurumi to inspire her about going back in time a second time (for reasons of it not being necessary anymore and for reasons of being dead). There's also the issues with explaining to past Kurumi about her sending Origami back into the past short-circuiting nothing about the situation. Despite all this paradox, upon saving Origami's parents, a new timeline "starts" a day after Origami's non-existent rampage where the only major difference was her situation, e.g., not knowing who Shidou was, not going to his school, and having a much more level personality. Shidou and Kurumi are the only people who remember anything about the original timeline. Origami, however, retains her inverse Spirit as a split personality that also remembers the original timeline and goes on laser-guided rampages whenever it sees other Spirits. This also proves interesting in that the events in which the spirits are captured in the new timeline seems to mostly follow the old timeline even without Origami's presence in the events in the new timeline, even though in the old timeline she proves pivotial in multiple situations like attacking Kotori during the water park date or delaying AST and DEM attacks during the school festival that would eventually leading to Tohka being captured and inversing, thus you would have think that things would have changed considerably there.]]
