* GrievousHarmWithABody: Momoka and Bankwell get too distracted fighting each other at one point during the MeleeATrois aboard the Naglfar, allowing Mirei to make a desperate run for Mamori: unfortunately Bankwell notices and stops her by ''chucking Momoka at her''.

* GrievousHarmWithABody: Momoka and Bankwell get too distracted fighting each other at one point during the MeleeATrois aboard the Naglfar, Sleipnir, allowing Mirei to make a desperate run for Mamori: unfortunately Bankwell notices and stops her by ''chucking Momoka at her''.


Added DiffLines:

** Somehow, the ''[[GiantMecha Sleipnir]]'' manages to give this vibe off when Mirei forces it to land. After transforming to Land Mode, it spends a moment quietly looming over her practically radiant with KillingIntent, while Bankwell, who's piloting it, is staring at her on the viewscreen with a blank expression and DullEyesOfUnhappiness before unleashing ''[[MacrossMissileMassacre everything]]'' [[MoreDakka on her]].


* AutobotsRockOut: The final charge on the Naglfar is backed by Music/{{Manowar}}'s ''Sleipnir'', a triumphant ballad that underlines Mamori and Mirei's realization that both Ensiferum and F.R.E.Y.A are rotten to the core, that the whole war is absolutely idiotic despite each side's grievances, and their resolve to [[OmnicidalNeutral stand up to both of them]].

* GondorCallsForAid: Mirei's final charge on the [[CoolAirship Naglfar]]: having failed to convince anyone to stand up to the two warring factions, it's just her and Mamori, then Lady Lady offers to take her there. Even then, it's a suicide charge with Mirei riding Lady J's cycle form and wielding Rain's gun form against literally ''everything'' Ensiferum and F.R.E.Y.A is throwing at her. But then a freshly-infected Saejima stops a [[SpiderTank Sleipnir]] from blasting her before Charlotte brings it down completely. ''Then'' an entire pack of F.R.E.Y.A gunners are mowed down by a group of Ensiferum defectors, who cheer Mirei on as she zooms past. '''''THEN''''' a flock of Ensiferum's [[AttackDrone Habroks]] are wiped out by Thor with a single lightning bolt. By the end, neither side can get anywhere ''near'' Mirei.

* LeaveHimToMe: Subverted: Momoka's fine with Bankwell killing Mirei instead of her so long as she can watch and he makes it hurt. It goes both ways: once Mirei makes it to the Naglfar Momoka insists on fighting Mirei herself, and Bankwell concedes so long as he can watch and she makes it hurt.

Added DiffLines:

* TheBerserker: Bankwell's fighting style is this, involving sweeping, heavy strikes with all his strength behind them, full-body lunges, and grabbing any heavy object he can reach and whamming his opponent with them. At first glance it's the epitome of sheer, overwhelming UnskilledButStrong, but over time Mirei starts to see the actual skill involved in it: every strike seamlessly transitions into another one or a split-second recovery, he feigns slow, readable swings before putting on sudden bursts of speed when the opponent is off-balance dodging them. He's not just flailing wildly; it's a calculated fighting style involving an [[AttackAttackAttack oppressive, relentless offense]] meant to prevent the opponent from gathering steam and crushing them before they can defend themselves.

Added DiffLines:

* SphereOfDestruction: Bankwell's daughter has a very...''different'' sort of Drive from most Extars. Rather than turning into a weapon, her Drive unleashes a dome of purple energy in a six meter diameter around her: it lasts for about ten seconds, during which time it sucks in everything around it with a powerful vacuum, annihilating anything that comes in contact with it. [[AwesomeButImpractical Despite how devastating it is, it's not-unjustly considered to be a horrible Drive]], probably even worse than [[GiantWoman Nimi's]]: it makes it impossible for her to have a Liberator, for one. Furthermore, it takes everything out of her, causing her to pass out helplessly after it runs its course. Finally, it makes no distinction between friend and foe: anything caught in the radius is in danger. Needless to say, she was thrilled to be cured.

Added DiffLines:

* RunningGag: Meifon asking where Ensiferum's [[OffscreenVillainDarkMatter bottomless budget comes from]]. The first time, it's a legitimate question asked in a serious tone. As Ensiferum unveils more and more insane weaponry and levels of manpower, her tone gets more and more incredulous, until the [[GiantMecha Sliepnir]] is unveiled.
-->'''Meifon:''' WHO?! IS?! '''''FUNDING THESE PEOPLE?!?!'''''


* HeroKiller: 'Loki' of Ensiferum, who singlehandedly wiped out the Bhikkhuni uprising and (presumably) killed its leaders. He accomplished this by [[TheCracker hacking the Four Pillar Gods]] and turning them against the uprising. Indeed, the only survivors of the massacre were the Kagurazaki twins, who weren't even on the island at the time, having been spirited away to participate in [[VideoGame/SenranKaguraPeachBeachSplash the Peach Beach Splash watergun tournament.]]

* SuperPoweredEvilSide: [[spoiler: Mirei gains one when Jimenez pushes her to the RageBreakingPoint. Her [[SuperMode Enhance]] abilities spin out of control, changing from black armored arms and legs and a single cybernetic eye to a full suit of wolf-like armor that looks uncannily like the [[Manga/{{Berserk}} Berserker Armor]]. It comes with razor-sharp claws and incredible strength, but Mirei completely loses her shit in this state, screaming and roaring as she [[TheBerserker wildly attacks everything around her.]]]]

Added DiffLines:

* HellIsThatNoise: [[SuperPoweredEvilSide Fenrir]]'s roars sound like a mix between a distorted wolf's howl, and Mirei ''screaming in rage and abject torment''.

Added DiffLines:

* DarkerAndEdgier: Than its source material by far. While there were plenty of dark themes in ''Anime/ValkyrieDriveMermaid'', it was counterbalanced by its nature as an over-the-top PantyFighter. Combat in ''Ragnarok'' is several orders of magnitude more brutal with absolutely zero focus on {{Fanservice}}: lacerations, broken bones, burns, punching of wounds, pummeling with chairs and other improvised weaponry...it's more in line with ''Franchise/DragonBall'' in terms of violence.


* HiddenDepths: PlayedForLaughs: Saijima's girlfriend in''Anime/ValkyrieDriveMermaid'' has no lines, characterization, or even a name given in-show, and [[TheQuietOne she barely gets any lines in the story]]. But in a moment that comes [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment right the f*ck out of nowhere]], she gets [[BerserkButton surprisingly angry]] when Charlotte makes a joke about how [[Film/TheWizardOfOz she doesn't think they're in Kansas anymore]] when they get dragged into the Pantheon. She gets right in Charlotte's face, snapping that it's [[BeamMeUpScotty "I have a FEELING we're not in Kansas anymore"]], [[Film/StarWars it's "No, I am your father", not "Luke, I am your father"]], and [[WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants it's ORLOK, not Nosferatu!]] There's a moment of stunned, confused silence, and then Saijima jabs a thumb at her girlfriend and whispers that she was majoring in film studies before the whole Mermaid debacle.
