Tropes found in Itadaki no Hecate:

  • Adaptational Villainy: While this is generally averted, Southvalley, who was originally a Blood Knight but ultimately a good guy, is being built up as the Big Bad of the fic.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Flieder loses an arm to Yuji's sneak attack.
  • Advertisement:
  • Badass Family: The Bal Masque Trinity.
  • Badass Normal: Yuji's father, Kantaro Sakai. He fights one of the most powerful Flame Haze in the world for a few minutes with Trigger Happy. He lost, yes, but it is still something most people wouldn't be capable of doing.
  • Big Bad: As of the second season, Southvalley is Yuji and Hecate’s greatest foe, as he plans to break the Masquerade and draw the entire world into the Haze-Denizen Forever War in a desperate attempt to finally win.
  • Big Good: The Snake of the Festival, since Yuji’s with Bal Masque from the beginning.
  • Caught the Heart on His Sleeve:
  • Character Development: For Sorath of all people courtesy of Yuji. Sorath actually performs a Heroic Sacrifice to save Tiriel.
  • Cooldown Hug:
  • Dual Wielding: Hecate wields Trigon and Blutsauger during the battle against Wilhelmina.

  • Fanservice Pack: Hecate contemplates doing this with her shapeshifting powers but Yuji says he likes her the way she is.
  • Game Face: Hecate has one that can induce Oh, Crap! reactions from most people.
  • Groin Attack: Margery deals one out to Wilhelmina during their rematch.
  • Marshmallow Hell: Margery does this to Keisaku a couple of times.
  • Not So Different: Hecate and Shana. This actually infuriates Hecate since unlike her Shana is capable of being more than "just a Flame Haze" but chooses not to while Hecate CAN'T be anything other than the Priestess but desperately wishes to be.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: Pretty much everyone comments on how Hecate is much more cheerful and open compared to before.
  • Screw Destiny: Yuji's eventual attitude regarding Hecate's fate as Priestess.
  • Shrinking Violet: Hecate, due to her role as priestess.

  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Hecate.
  • Tsundere: Shana as expected, but it's especially hilarious when despite not being the main girl Yuji is still capable of triggering Shana's Tsun, during their first chat.
  • Unstoppable Rage: Hecate after seeing that Yukari has been turned into a torch.
  • When She Smiles: Hecate, whenever she allows herself to show her happiness instead of confining herself to her priestess role.
  • Will They or Won't They? / Everyone Can See It: The Margery/Keisaku Ship Tease is a bit more blatant than in Canon.
  • You Can't Fight Fate: The attitude of Hecate, the rest of the Trinity, and even the Snake of the Festival regarding Hecate's fate as Priestess. Notably, the Snake is shown hoping for a miracle that will free Hecate from her fate. Yuji aims to provide.
  • You Shall Not Pass!: Yuji pulls this on Shana in order to buy time for Hecate and Bel Peol to retreat to the Seireden. He nearly gets sliced in half for his troubles but provides the crucial couple of seconds for them to escape unharmed.
