* CoolBigSis: Mariabelle, Cleao's sister. Cleao herself, to Lycoris (though this can be arguably seen as RomanticTwoGirlFriendship). Azalie used to be this for Orphen, until things went downhill. Stephanie also is this, to a degree.

* AdjectiveNounFred: The title itself. However, thee original Japanese title, ''Majutsushi Orphen'', directly translates to "Orphen the Sorcerer."
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: Azalie was in love with Childman, but he rejected her. Ellis is in love with Majik, but he's ObliviousToLove. Cleao struggles with her feelings for Orphen towards the end of the first season, but their relationship in the second one is more LikeBrotherAndSister. A fairly strong case can be made for Hartia being Orphen's UnluckyChildhoodFriend. Apparently, Tisha liked Orphen too in the past.
* AmbiguousGender: The younger troll, Dortin. While the JerkAss troll, Volkan, is repeatedly referenced to as "he" and quite clearly masculine in looks, Dortin is a bit more confusing, mixing a plain, chubbily androgynous face and NerdGlasses with, at least in the dubbed anime, a feminine sounding voice. That the dub never refers to Dortin by any gender-based pronouns doesn't make matters easier... though the subbing does have Dortin referred to by Majic and Cleao as "she" in episode 12, the same episode also has Volkan make references to "him", presumably talking about Dortin.

* GenderBender: [[spoiler: Or better said, TransSexual. Stephanie actually was a male-bodied magic user named Stephan, who after being gravely injured asked the local healers to give her a female physical body. They complied, and Stephan became Stephanie. Cleao and Majik are surprised, but Orphen seems to not care.]]

It had a UsefulNotes/PlayStation2 video game, but was unrelated to the plot. Fairly unique, and it had a tendency to repeat plot elements. This was, shockingly, NOT the result of bad writing, and allowed it to pull off twists other games couldn't even attempt. [[spoiler: A machine is using its creations to steal live people and put them in their own stories. The machine records these souls and feeds on them. Hence, 'characters' are reused several times, cycling through roles, and screwing with the viewer and Orphen's head.]] It also had its moments of good voice acting, which more often than not carried the script. The combat was good, despite having to fight the same boss several times, and it had a solid Framing Device that culminated in a FullyAbsorbedFinale.

Krylancelo abandons the Tower of Fangs and takes up the name of Orphen, furious with the fact that they want to destroy his best friend. Afterwards, people who Orphen thought were his friends suddenly seem as though they are enemies in the race to get to Azalie first. Meanwhile, Orphen himself sets out on a journey to find and save her with his apprentice, Majic Finn, and a young girl who holds one of the key items Orphen needs in her house, Cleao Everlasting. Along the way, two bumbling Troll siblings, Volkan and Dortin, tend to make things worse no matter what.
