Just her treatment of her own child is sickening enough. [[AbusiveParents Parental abuse]] doesn't begin to describe it.

** As ''Soul Eater Not!'' has addressed Maka, Soul, and Jacqueline as EAT (Especially Advantaged Talent) students, the 10% of students who considered as combat specialists, it could be assumed that this trope may not apply. Even if they have the same number of stars as an average student despite being very capable, they are ranked in an entirely different class and given different missions.
** As of the formation of Spartoi, this trope is out the window, as the 6 weapon-meister pairs included in the group have been promoted to two-star status. [[spoiler: YMMV on whether Soul and Maka are still underranked. Soul may be a Death Scythe now, but he and Maka are still very inexperienced using the new abilities that come with being one, and she's still much weaker in a fight that both Black Star and Kid.]]
** The Desk Lady, the Desk Lady so much. While Kid's attacks left a clown unfazed in the battle of the moon, the Desk Lady smashed it with the force of a raging Gorila. It helps that she refers to herself as a gorila.

* AmbiguousGender: Crona. Recognized as ambiguous numerous times by characters within canon itself. Any person that seems to know their gender is probably basing their hypothesis off of fan translations and unsubstantiated claims by other fans.

While "they" ''is'' traditionally used to refer to multiple individuals at once, it's also a very common pronoun in real life to be used for people that you don't know the gender of, [[ItIsDehumanizing doesn't come with any of the unfortunate implications that the other widely used gender neutral pronoun has]], and would have been easier for the audience to pick up than other gender neutral pronouns thanks to being a widely used word no matter what definition it has. Indeed, many real life non-binary people ''prefer'' to be referred to with "they" pronouns.[[/note]], not because they think Crona is male. There is no solid canon support for Crona being any gender, partially thanks to third-person pronouns ("he" & "she") being almost completely unused in Japanese.
** But other translations, like the French one, let the other character use "she", as it seems to be their best guess at Crona's gender.

* AmusingInjuries: Somewhat averted. In the first fight between Black☆Star and Kid, Black☆Star still has the head wound Soul accidentally gave him, even after the battle. Somewhat, because they don't die of comedic injuries, but averted because the injuries ''do'' last for the normal amount of time.
** People nailed by Maka's 'Maka Chop' (Hit in the head with the spine of a book) in the anime, at least, have a book-shaped dent in their heads for a bit, and occasionally tiny decorative fountains of blood, but next scene are back to normal.
*** Death's Reaper Chop does the same thing, except he uses his large, square-edged hands instead of a book. Usually on Death Scythe.

** Though, he ''was'' willing to cut down his list of 1,000 unreasonable demands to a still-unreasonable 800 demands just so that someone would ''use'' him. Presumably, a very persuasive meister could negotiate him down to something manageable.
*** Awesome but ANNOYING really. And so awesome, in fact, that in a failure student claims him and becomes THE BEST MEISTER in the school. The weapon form itself is exceedingly practical and easy to use, and extremely awesome. It's just the PERSONALITY that makes it unmanageable.
*** It's heavily implied that Excalibur is actually an EldritchAbomination that is the personification of rage. He's just that annoying.
** Soul. Anyone whose ever done any kind of weapons training knows that having your only cutting edge on the side of your weapon that faces YOU is not good. Scythes are extremely impractical weapons in real life and hard as hell to use in a fight against any other weapon. Traditionally, even spearmen would carry a short sword on them in case the enemy got past the pointy end of the spear (the only part that they were concerned about).The fact Maka can wield Soul and beat up magic and sword users is a testament to her awesomeness.
*** This is mitigated at higher-level transformations as "Witch Hunter" is shown to be effective with both inner and outer edges. The next form, the "Demon Hunter" ("Genie Hunter" in the Funimation dub of the anime) [[spoiler: transforms Soul's weapon form into an oversized [[http://www.kultofathena.com/product.asp?item=VA54095&name=Valiant+Armoury+Avenger+Battle+Axe Pick-Axe]] ]], and the final form, "Kishin Hunter" [[spoiler: covers it in huge spikes]].
*** Note also that, at least in the anime, Death's weapon of choice is a Scythe. He's even mentioned as being "at his finest", somewhat justified as Spirit also has both inner and outer cutting edges.
