* EvenEvilHasStandards: Sure, Class Black wants a hand on Haru, but they have no tolerance for [[spoiler:Otoya]] upon learning of her status as a serial killer.

Added DiffLines:

** Haru has massive surgical scars covering her body [[spoiler:from when her bones were reinforced with titanium.]]


** He does start to think something is up, but beleives it's to do with his teaching rather than his students trying to kill each other. He's easily re-assured by the Chairwoman in the anime. In the manga, Nio straight up tells him to mind his own business and keep doing his job.

* RuleOfSeven: Tokaku's first password attempt to defuse the bomb strapped on Haru is 7777 and the other two have 7 on them; all of these happen in episode 7. To make things interesting, said episode [[spoiler:stars Suzu, student no. 7 on the role, whose birthday is 7/14, and is 7th expelled.]]

* TransferStudentUniforms: Each member of Class Black wheres a different uniform, although none of them seem to be the actual Myojou Academy uniform. Nio might be wearing the correct uniform, but it's hard to tell as all of the normal students are all monochrome.

* BuryYourGays: An odd example since it's a manga about lesbian assassins trying to kill one another, but the two characters with most ShipTease, outside of the main couple, are [[spoiler:Chitaru and Hitsugi]], and they are the first characters [[KilledOffForReal to actually die on screen.]] Bonus points for [[spoiler:being a huge Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet ShoutOut]] as well.

* ATeamFiring
** When [[spoiler:Otoya]] is charging at her, Tokaku somehow manages to repeatedly shoot the exact same area where [[spoiler:Otoya's]] blades were crossed, causing her to accidentally deflect the bullets.
** [[spoiler:Kouko]] misses every single shot when she fires her gun at Tokaku. In the manga she also manages to completely miss Haru at point blank range with grenades. That's a special kind of incompetent right there.
** [[spoiler:Isuke]] misses when she fires at Tokaku, although the first one does graze her cheek.
** [[spoiler:Sumireko's machine gun arm]] never once hits Tokaku, even at times when it should have been easy to hit her.
** [[spoiler:Nio]] doesn't hit Tokaku once with her gun. [[spoiler:She does however destroy her katana with one of her shots]].

* ConspicuousCGI: Used for the action sequences, and it's very easy to tell where. Banba's hammer in Episode 9 is particularly obvious -- its head is a polyhedron, perfect for CGI, and the animators take advantage of this almost every time it moves.
