** It's also not the first time Creator/MariyaIse has played a character with blue hair before, [[Manga/FairyTail except she was a wizard]].


* AssholeVictim:
** Zion becomes one when Tigre and Elen combine their attacks and kill him just as he makes his getaway. Not only did he ridicule Tigre and other archers, but he launched an assault on Alsace and did an AttemptedRape on Titta.
** It's hard to feel any sympathy for Kasim when Tigre shoots him in the head. Kasim murdered slaves just to provoke the Silver Meteor Storm into attacking them.
** There's not much sympathy to be had for Kazakov, especially when he is a mass murderer and mocking Lizaís eyes.

* ExactWords: Tir Na Fal tells Tigre she prefers to be invoked at midnight, on top of a mound of corpses. When he's lost at sea during Torbalan's attack, the conditions are met. She never said it had to be on land, or that Tigre had to have participated in the killing]
* FailsafeFailure: Be very careful of what you do in the Tatra Fortress at Olmutz. The only thing that keeps the citadelís gate from being breached are the oak planks in between sheets of metal, which can be easily destroyed by a combined attack and leave it open for enemy forces to attack.

Added DiffLines:

* CastingGag:
** It's not the first time Creator/HarukaTomatsu has voiced a swordswoman, except the last time [[LightNovel/SwordArtOnline it was from an online game]]. Tomatsu also voiced a character wearing blue, except that [[Series/PowerRangersMysticForce she was a Power Ranger]].
** The same goes for Elen's English actress Creator/CaitlinGlass, as she also voiced a girl with white hair, [[Manga/StrikeWitches except that she was a witch who fought the Neuroi]]. Glass also voiced a swordswoman, except that she was [[Manga/{{Freezing}} a stoic woman who doesn't like men at first]].
** Ryohei Kimura voices an AxCrazy [[Manga/AkameGaKill son of a corrupt politician who serves as the Big Bad]].
** Creator/SumireUesaka also played [[Anime/CrossAnge a maid who is a close friend of the protagonist]].


*** In Volume 1, she easily defeats the 25,000-strong Brunish army with only [[ConservationOfNinjutsu The 5,000-man Zhcted army]] of her troops in the Dinant Plains. It was because: A. It was a night time ambush. B. During the initial attack, the army of Brune declared that Regin was killed (or so they thought), which in turn caused a full on route. C. That in turn caused a sizable portion of the Brune forces to get trampled under foot of their own allies. And finally D. Elen's forces were able to run down most of the stragglers. Elen, however, is actually ''disappointed'' about the amazing victory, because she wasn't able to test as many strategies as she'd had wanted to. Later in that same volume, she obliterates Zionís dragon with her Ley Admos attack.

The bad news is that many have perished in [[spoiler:the invasion of Sachstein, the insurgency of Brune and Muozinel's attack on Nemetacum]] with thousands more dying in [[spoiler:Zhcted's civil war]], [[spoiler:Greast's AttemptedRape on Elen]] has taken a temporary toll on her sanity, [[spoiler:King Viktor, Ilda Kurtis, Eugene Sharavin and Auguste are dead]], and Regin becomes the [[spoiler:last living descendant of King Charles]].

Added DiffLines:

* BattleOfTheStillFrames: Almost any battle that isn't between named characters turns into this, such as when Roland shows up. He screams and is shown on a still frame, while the RedShirtArmy troops get slaughtered the same way. If any actual combat is shown, it's typically the named character running by on horseback and slashing at random enemy troops. Or getting killed by Tigre's arrows.


Added DiffLines:

* ConspicuousCG: In the anime, the battle scenes are depicted this way on a strategic level. For the more generic movements, they'll show chess pieces representing various forces on a map, with a narrator explains what's happening. Various pieces moving around, slaughtering other pieces or getting trapped, and during crucial events, the scene will focus back on the main characters to show what they're doing on the battlefield.
