** Isseiís plan to abuse Gasparís ability to stop time would definitely constitute sexual assault.

** Isseiís plan to abuse Gasparís Gasperís ability to stop time would definitely constitute sexual assault.



** Gaspar is [[ShowerShy very uncomfortable bathing with Issei and Kiba]] and keeps his Modesty Towel on the whole time. Issei calls him out on how unmanly it is, especially since Gasper wears the towel wrapped around his torso like a girl.

* YouAreWorthHell: Issei goes through metric shit-tons of literal hell for ''all'' his friends. Fought Raynare when he rescues Asia, Riser for Rias when no one thought he'd win, defended Akeno when even she thought she was worthless, fought for Kiba to help him defeat his torturers from his past, helped Gaspar get past his severe misanthropy and shut-in problems, defended Koneko from her sister Kuroka and helped her accept her Nekomata powers. And the list just goes on.

* AssholeVictim: Diodora Astaroth being ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice is awful enough, but after seeing his murderous nature, his lust and his attempt to rape a nun such as Asia Argento, one can only conclude there's not much sympathy to be had for a devil like him.

Added DiffLines:

* ModestyTowel:
** Used to show how Rossweisse is [[ReluctantFanserviceGirl more conservative than the other girls in the Club]] as she's the only that wears a Modesty Towel while the other girls happily go into baths naked even when Issei is present.
** Gaspar is [[ShowerShy very uncomfortable bathing with Issei and Kiba]] and keeps his Modesty Towel on the whole time. Issei calls him out on how unmanly it is, especially since Gasper wears the towel wrapped around his torso like a girl.

** While Fafnir's still touted as powerful enough to bite Gods to death in the anime, the protagonists have a much easier time beating him into submission.

to:

** While Fafnir's Fenrirís still touted as powerful enough to bite Gods to death in the anime, the protagonists have a much easier time beating him into submission.

Added DiffLines:

* FormulaWithATwist: The series blends the conventions of a {{Shonen}} action fantasy involving Demons vs Devils vs Angels with that of a HaremGenre, with the main character determined to be come [[HaremSeeker a "Harem King"]]. The [[MarryThemAll "harem ending"]] thus becomes a ForegoneConclusion, as (aside from the {{Fanservice}}), it's the entire draw of the series.


* AdaptationalCurves: In ''Hero'', Koneko and Asia are ''significantly'' more buxom than they were in either the light novel, manga or the anime's first three seasons, to the point where the latter's breasts match her later light novel counterpart.

* AdaptationalCurves: In ''Hero'', Koneko Koneko, Venelana and Asia are ''significantly'' more buxom than they were in either the light novel, manga or the anime's first three seasons, to the point where the latter's breasts match seasons. In Asia's case, her later bust matches her light novel novel's counterpart.


Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalSkimpiness: In the light novels, Raynare continues wearing the same outfit from her date after revealing sheís a fallen angel. The anime swaps this out for a ChainmailBikini.
* AdaptationalWimp:
** While Fafnir's still touted as powerful enough to bite Gods to death in the anime, the protagonists have a much easier time beating him into submission.
** In a sense with Thanatos. The mythical Thanatos was a ''Protogenoi'', the son of Nyx and Erebus and the personification of Death, thus feared by all mortal beings. In the story, he's pretty much reduced to your regular GrimReaper, with all the things that it entails in-universe.


Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationDyeJob:
** While Rias's eyes are turquoise in the first three anime seasons, they're colored blue in the the original light novels as well as the fourth anime season.
** In the original light novel, Momo Hanakai's hair is colored black. In the anime, her hair is white instead.
** For the second and third seasons of the anime, Vali's hair color is changed from light silver to dark silver and his eyes change from hazel to blue.
** In the light novel, Katerea has purple eyes. The anime, on the other hand, changes her eye color to blue-grey.
** In ''[=BorN=]'', Millicas's eye color is changed to blue to match Rias's eye color. His eye color does eventually change back to red in ''Hero''.
** While Loki's uniform is white in ''[=BorN=]'', Loki wears a black version of Odinís robes in the original light novels.
** Grayfia's eyes, which are red in the light novels, are changed to silver in the anime to match her hair.
** While Diodora had blond hair in the original light novel series, his hair is dark green in the anime.
** Zephyrdor's hair color was originally green in the light novels. His hair is changed to blue in the anime.


Added DiffLines:

** In ''[=BorN=]'', Loki has a larger role to the point where he curses Issei and Rias, due to a future version of him creating alternate timelines as depicted in ''EX''.


** In Volume 7, Koneko dresses up in a white dress and enters her OneWingedAngel form to heal Issei's life force after using Juggernaut Drive in the same manner that Akeno used when she tries to heal him of his dragon power in volumes 3 and 4.

** Sairaorg concludes that Gasper's training with Grigori has brought his [[OneWingedAngel Forbidden Balor View]] to the point where he only needs an emotional push to hit his Balance Breaker. Georg ends up providing this push by [[DoNotTauntCthulhu taunting him about Issei's death]].

* FromBadToWorse:
** In volume 2, Riser turns up and Rias proposes to hold a Rating Game. Then the Occult Research Club gets defeated by Riser's allies. Then Riser brutally attacks Issei. ''Then'' Rias is forced to stop the game by resigning before Issei gets injured any further. And this happens a few chapters before the EngagementChallenge between Issei and Riser.
** In volume 6, Diodora shows up and sends letters to Asia. Then, the Khaos Brigade attacks the Underworld and Diodora kidnaps Asia. ''Then'', Shalba kills Diodora and sends Asia to the Dimensional Gap, leading Issei to the only conclusion he knows.

* TakeThat:
** The Tohji, the "Familiar Master" in Volume 5. He is a middle-aged man who dresses and talks like Ash Ketchum/Satoshi is a not-too-kind jab at the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' fandom, particularly adults who refuse to "let go." [[SelfDeprecation Ironically]], Ichiei Ishibumi admits that he's a fan of ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' as a whole in the volume 8 afterword, and his artist told his editor to make that story. Also, in another bout of irony, The Tohji's Japanese VA Creator/HisaoEgawa voiced several characters in ''Pokémon''.
** ''EX'' and the RecapEpisode of ''Hero'' were reportedly a "take that" at ''[=BorN=]'', after Tetsuya Yanagisawa publicly revealed that he was the one who condensed volumes 5 to 7 into one 12-episode season over the objections of Ichiei Ishibumi and Takao Yoshioka.

* RealityEnsues:
** Issei, a lonely and desperate teenage boy, is approached by a seemingly cute and friendly girl that wants to go out with him, despite knowing his reputation as a perverted high school student; he ''will'' jump at the occasion. Furthermore, when said girl turns out to be a dangerous Fallen Angel and double-crosses him, it seriously causes a HeroicBSOD on his part.
** In Volume 8, Issei sadly reminisces of an old man at a park who displayed obscene picture shows to the seven-year-old protagonist and other children while teaching him the appeal of sucking on breasts. Issei was then appalled when he came one day to find the man under arrest.


** A darker variation with episode 1 of [=BorN=]. It starts off with Issei having an erotic dream of the girls topless and telling him to have at them, and he's all-too-eager to start. Then Raynare appears to cruelly mock him and Issei ends up snapping awake on the verge of tears.

* DarwinistDesire: A few of the love interests for Issei, such as Xenovia and Kuroka, start off interested in having children with a dragon for this reason. They gain reasons beyond this trope over time.
