* RealityEnsues:
** In chapters 1 and 2, Hresvelgr's eagerness to fight coupled with her willingly giving Gourai a handicap in battery stamina by not recharging after beating Stylet means she ends up falling asleep from battery power exhaustion after defeating Gourai.
** In chapter 3, Stylet's jetpack wasn't really designed for her to lift more than her own bodyweight plus some weapons, so naturally she has issues picking up and carrying the heavily-armored Gourai.
** In Chapter 4, it is revealed that the flight-oriented FA Girls Stylet and Baselard are too lightweight to move effectively with Gourai's heavy tanklike armor.
** In Chapter 6, it is revealed that Hresvelgr's rambunctious and naughty nature means that she didn't get permission to wander around as freely as the other girls, as the Materia twins demonstrate by arresting her for sneaking around behind her researcher's backs. It's also shown that Toda's suggestions to give Jinrai a "bold and heroic nature" ended up making the FA Girl into a samurai/ninja chuuni.
** Chapter 7 shows that putting the AS systems and FA Girl code into the Architect AI turned her into a full-fledged Frame Arms Girl, who [[PinocchioSyndrome ends up desiring a body and Master (parental figure) of her own]].
** Chapter 8 shows that pushing the envelope on Hresvelgr's development to make her the most powerful FA Girl in combat also upsets CompetitiveBalance, making her far too strong for a small in-house tournament.

The [[Anime/FrameArmsGirls anime adaptation]] started airing in early April as part of the Spring 2017 Anime lineup, and ran for 12 episodes. In it, a young lady named Ao Gennai gets introduced to the world of cute little robot girls as a result of her father signing her up for a monetized review/research program with Frame Advance (the FictionalCounterpart to Kotobukiya), which also conveniently frees her up from having to hunt for a part-time job in order to earn a little extra pocket money. The Blu-Ray release for the anime is in 4 volumes (3 episodes each), with exclusive new model kits of the girls (volume 1 has no-armor Gourai, volume 2 has no-armor Stylet, volume 3 has Anime Colours Baselard, and volume 4 has [[spoiler:Gourai KAI]]) included with each.

Desktop Army, too, has created their own takes on the Girls at near 1/18 scale. Gourai, Baselard, Jinrai, and Innocentia are on the shelves, and Hresvelgr and Stylet have been shown to be in prototype design phase. in 2019, Kotobukiya announced the use of their 1/18 Hexa Gear Governator pilot figure chassis as a new size form factor for FA Girls, with Gourai and Stylet being made at "Hand-Size" class even tinier than her regular figure.

* ThemeNaming: Inherited from the mainline Frame Arms mecha (such as Durga and Rapier), several of the girls are named after weapons (Stylet is a mis-spelling of ''stiletto'', Baselard, and Zelfikar/Zulfiqar, all of whom are named for bladed weapons).

* FollowTheLeader: Amusingly, a multi-stage and multi-layered example that spans decades:
** Bandai started the mecha musume figure craze with their Gundam Girls sub-franchise in the 1980s with cute girls dressed up like mobile suits.
** Konami then created a major niche in the market with their Busou Shinki in the 2000s, but stopped production in the 2010s due to their unsuccessful attempt to rebrand into a pure Pachinko company, leaving a gap in the market. Kotobukiya bought over a lot of the now-laid-off Shinki engineering team, and used their talents to make vast strides in improving the newly-created Frame Arms Girls. This allowed them to follow the lead on mecha musume and carve out their market share, which in turn allowed them to invest more in improved engineering for successive waves of FA Girls, further cementing their corner of the plamo market.
** Bandai, seeing a plamo competitor suddenly carve out a significant market share in mecha musume kits, counter-escalated by making their MS Girls kits for Gundam Build Fighters and then Build Divers (to mixed reactions, with Sarah and Ayame being their most successful figures), in addition to designing and releasing more Armored Girls Project mecha musume action figures. Goodsmile and Max Factory followed suit by striking deals to create nendoroids and figma for the Kantai Collection and Azur Lane series of mecha musume.
** Konami, now returning to the gaming industry in infamy and ignominy, strike a contract with Kotobukiya to assist in reviving their Busou Shinki with the Rebuild/Re-Arm/Revive series.

* ChainsawGood: MSG Kit Dynamic Chainsaw - it has a fully articulated belt made of linked individual teeth, comes with a spring-powered windup motor, and can be outfitted with the battery-powered Gimmick Kit Motor. Of course, the tiny polystrene chainsaw teeth are both too blunt and too soft to really be much of a danger to your fingers (unless you get pinched between the teeth due to carelessness).


In a fashion rather like the Shinki, FA Girls have a lot of articulation and a modular pegs/parts system that leverages Kotobukiya's universal Mobile Support Goods (MSG) accessories for their model kits and action figures. However, unlike shinki and more like traditional Gunpla and other model kits, you ''do'' need to assemble the girls by detaching their parts from plastic runners and putting them together. The trade-off is a reduction in cost which makes the ''Frame Arms Girls'' kits less expensive (and [[CrackIsCheaper more easily collectible]]) than ''Busou Shinki''.

As of April 2017 Gourai and Stylet are the first two to be made available as Poches, with White and Black Materia en-route. They have also announced plans for ''crossover'' Frame Arms Girls from other franchises with the Cross Frame girls, the first two known such girls being Anime/GaoGaiGar and Sylphy from the Desktop Army series.
