This fanfic contains examples of:
- The Atoner: Poli reveals that Touma has shades of this for being one of the Key factors of the war and dragging Mikoto into being attacked. Poli's abilities magnified his guilt to suicidal levels, but he snaps himself out of it. Lessar explained to Mikoto earlier that the war was going to happen anyway, and Mikoto forced herself on the trip, so she really isn't to blame anyway.
- Born Winner: Descendants, who inherited a High Spirit or gods power through legacy. Contrast Saints, instead of having a body similar to the Son of God, they have received a very small fraction of power from a powerful ancestor.
- Combat Clairvoyance: The Reverse Nine of Swords card allows Mark to see his own death before it happens in battle, thus letting him avoid it for a minute.
- Crapsack World: Lesser goes into great details about how the world of magicians was a dark place until Touma appeared. Magicians were expect to be amoral and willing to do anything to achieve a goal, including sacrificing thousands of people ate once or even destroying the world.
- Darker and Edgier: Compared to the main series, where violence isn't as toned down and the focus is on how dark magicians are.
- The Empath: Poli can read emotions and magnify them.
- Extra-ore-dinary: Mikoto can use her lightning abilities to manipulate iron sand and can transform into weapons, platforms, and so on.
- HeelFace Brainwashing: Mark can force betrayal using the Seven of Swords.
- Mr. Exposition: Lessar, who explains to Mikoto whatever she needs to know.
- Required Secondary Powers: Mikoto is completely immune to Shock and Awe, while Pel is only resistant to her own. Poli also has partial resistance to her abilities as well. Justified with the magicians as their status as Descendants grants them a tiny portion of their ancestor's powers.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Index has silver-blue hair.
