This film provides examples of:

  • Action Girl: A whole team of them, though Rin, Yoshie, and Rei stand out as the most willing to fight.
  • Big Bad: The unnamed Prime Minister of Japan, who started the genocidal campaign against the mutants.
  • Bloody Hilarious: Very, in accordance with Tokyo Gore Police and Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl.
  • Butt-Monkey: The unnamed Prime Minister, when he finally shows up in the final third of the movie, is constantly getting dismembered and attacked.
  • Chainsaw Good: This is one of the other mutant's powers. It comes out of her butt.
  • Cop Killer: Kisaragi kills loads of cops after gaining the powers of Izanami.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Kisaragi after awakening Izanami.
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: There's a bunch a mutants. Who just so happen to be girls. And they're in a squad. You do the math.

  • Gag Penis: Sported by Rin's father, when he reveals himself as a mutant.
  • Hate Sink: The Prime Minister, a putrid looking asshole who created the anti-HILKO laws, is one of the nastier characters in the movie, and thus the audience doesn't feel too bad for him when he starts getting his arms chopped off.
  • High-Pressure Blood: Which is par for the course when it comes to Yoshihiro Nishimura's movies.
  • Hospital Hottie: The really sexy school nurse who diagnoses Rin's condition and tries to kill her.
  • Jerkass: The Prime Minister, despite creating the anti-HILKO laws, is just a douchebag, constantly insulting people and acting like a brat, despite his age.
  • Male Gaze: We get a very nice shot of the school nurse's legs when she is on the phone.
  • Not-So-Well-Intentioned Extremist: Kisaragi, who despite claiming to want peace with his fellow mutants, is revealed to be a selfish psychopath willing to use his own HILKO army as suicide bombers just so he can gain control of Japan himself.
  • Overdrawn At The Bloodbank: Loads of people have more blood than one should. Granted, this is from the directors of Tokyo Gore Police, The Machine Girl, and Yakuza Weapon.
  • She's Got Legs: The nurse.
  • Shout-Out: The mutant using flame powers looks an awful lot like Astro Boy. Even more obvious when he cuts off his hands and feet.
  • Suicide Attack: In the climax, Kisaragi turns his HILKO girls into suicide bombers that cause hundreds, if not thousands, of human casualties.
  • Your Head Asplode: Rin's mother due to getting it shot off by anti-HILKO police.
