* GameBreakingBug: In-universe example. In episode 14, Kuroneko is working on a game for an internet contest, and Kyousuke is beta-testing it. After a while, he runs into some pretty big bugs that either causes the game to freeze up, crash, or cause other unintended consequences. The other members of the game club mention that it would take at least a week to fix all the problems, which means they'd miss the deadline. In a rather [[CrowningMomentOfHeartWarming heartwarming scene]], she swallows her pride and asks Sena, who's a skilled programmer,(and whose own idea for a game got shot down earlier in the episode) for her help to finish the game and get rid of the bugs before the contest deadline. With Sena's help, they manage to make it in time.

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:Kirino and Kyousuke do get together. But in the process, he ends up hurting several girls who fell in love with him and ruining his relationship with Manami(albeit justifiable to as she has been manipulating Kyousuke, mentally scarred Kirino, and was the reason their relationship went sour). The kicker is that after they graduate, they split up due to a prior agreement for this to be temporary. But they are still closer than they ever were and it's implied(more heavily in the Novels) that they may secretly still be together as their feelings for each other haven't changed.]]

* {{Cosplay}}: This overlaps with CosplayOtakuGirl. In the PSP VisualNovel, there's a rather risque-looking minigame version of {{Arkanoid}} where you basically knock off the girls' clothes as you progress. They start off cosplaying as appropriate ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'' characters (for instance, Kirino as Mikoto and Kuroneko as Index) and Index herself guest stars. They end up in bikinis [[FanService for some reason]].

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Now just what exactly is that stuff on Manami's face (read: Kuroneko's depiction of Manami in a doujin she made) in the middle of episode 11? This also happens in a few [[ImagineSpot imagine spots]] of the manga, showing the ShowWithinAShow lolis being covered with some sort of liquid while certain unclothed body parts are just barely off the frame.

** Kirino is one to some extent.
** In episode 4 of Season 2, Kirino constantly calls Kyousuke this when Ria, her's roommate and athletic rival from the time she spent in the US, comes to visit her for a few days.
** It is revealed that [[spoiler:Mikagami is a hardcore lolicon. There was an incident when he took a cosplayer home after Comiket and photos were taken of it, then spread over the internet. When he realized his popularity and career were failing because of it, he decided to go "all or nothing" and publicly revealed that he cannot possibly be into ''real'' lolis because 2D lolis are better.]] It fails miserably, but he is quite content afterwords.


* ADayInTheLimeLight:
** Episode 6 of the anime has Kyosuke spend a lot of time with his female friend Manami, to the point where he ends up sleeping over at her house, with a lot of [[ShipTease encouragement]] from Manami's grandparents.
** Episode 3 of season 2 focuses entirely on Saori, giving her much needed back story, and how she became interested in anime and manga.
** Kuroneko gets all of Volume Five of the novel and the ONA webisodes devoted to her, which is when Kirino is PutOnABus. She gets some more attention in episodes 7 & 8 in season 2, [[spoiler: after her RelationshipUpgrade with Kyousuke.]]
** Volume Nine of the LightNovel is a collection of short stories that each focuses on different characters, including Saori, Kouhei, and Sena.
