Go To


  • Every time Bell gets subjected to Marshmallow Hell:
    • Eina does so to tease Bell after he mistakes her for being far older than she really is.
    • After Demeter and the other goddesses follow Hestia to see her date, they all fawn over Bell, cuddling and stroking him. When an exhausted Bell manages to stumble out from the crowd of goddesses, he collapses right into Demeter's bosom, and once he's there Demeter won't let him go, pressing his face ever closer, much to Hestia's jealousy.

    • Hestia herself after breaking up a fight between Mord by releasing her divine power, she runs to the Bell and tackle hugs him where she plants her boobs firmly on his face.
  • Every time someone from Loki familia expresses jealousy towards Bell for how much Aiz pays attention to him. Much more common in Sword Oratoria since they're the viewpoint characters there.
  • Sword Oratoria in general makes much of Bell's interactions with Aiz in the main series retroactively hilarious. While Bell tends to view her as a Lady of War and The Stoic, her own narration reveals that she's internally agonizing about everything she does and terrified she's being too rough or harsh with him.
  • Everytime Aiz of all people displays Clingy Jealous Girl tendencies towards Bell, especially when she thinks Bete is his idol.


Main Series

  • Bell running up to Eina asking for information on Aiz....while soaked in blood. He gets labelled the "Tomato Kid" by Bete for this incident.
  • When Bell first meets Mama Mia, she says that Syr told her that he has the gluttony of a horse, prompting him to stare at Syr in shock. When he tries to protest, Syr just tries to guilt trip him into spending lots of money at their pub.
  • Loki came to the Banquet of the Gods just to laugh Hestia, making fun of her height and how she's so poor. However Hestia turns the tables by pointing it's really Loki who's the laughing stock since she has a flat chest. Hestia then proceeds to flaunt her own oversized jiggly boobs and cackling at Loki.
    • Then there's the fight between Loki and Hestia, two literal Physical Goddesses, involves them pulling on each others cheeks and calling each other names. Bonus points for the surrounding gods placing bets on who will win. How many times has this happened before?
  • Hestia forces Bell to go a date with her, and tries to get an Indirect Kiss out of him by feeding him her crepe. But Bell can't bring himself to eat a goddess's food and instead offers up his own. Bell notices Hestia has some whipped cream on her face and as he points it out, his hand flushes red and steams with embarrassment, to which Hestia wants Bell to wipe it off for her. Bell does so and Hestia absolutely delighted.

  • Upon first seeing Bell with Lily, Hestia becomes so depressed that she becomes drunk in Miach's presence, and she becomes so drunk she yells loudly that she loves Bell and a lot of other embarrassing things. Keep in mind that there are other people present as well. Miach for his part considers it a blessing Bell wasn't there at least.
  • When the other goddesses interrupt Hestia's "date" with Bell, they immediately swarm him to get a close look at the boy who managed to earn the affections one of the infamous virgin goddesses, subjecting him to Marshmallow Hell in the process. He manages to escape, but says he has no regrets left with a smile on his face.
  • When Bell wakes up after overusing his magic and causing Mind Down, he sees Aiz Wallenstein, his crush, has saved him and given him a lap pillow while he was unconscious. Horrified and embarrassed, he starts to get up....and continues the motion into a continuous Unnecessary Combat Roll down the pathway while screaming like a little girl. Aiz is left frozen, wondering what the hell just happened.
  • Bell realises the book he read was a grimoire, an incredibly expensive item which is now just dead weight after he got magic from it and goes to Syr, who tries to deflect any responsibility for the loss of the valuable item by acting cute.
  • Bell gets to train with Aiz, the girl of his dreams. Naturally, he's ecstatic....until he realizes she's a bit of an airhead who decides the best way to train him is beat the everloving snot out of him.
  • Aiz decides that it's time for her and Bell to do sleep training, claiming that it's an important skill for adventurers. Bell realises she's just sleepy, but she refuses to admit it.
  • The Good Angel, Bad Angel-esque Ham-to-Ham Combat between Bell's dead Grandfather and Hestia over whether or not he should kiss the sleeping Aiz, which culminates in his Grandfather blasting Hestia (a goddess, remember) out of Bell's mind, apparently with nothing but sheer Hamminess.
  • In the novels, after levelling up, Bell finds himself in the presence of several gods and goddesses who were extremely eager to get him to join their familia.
  • After forming a contract with Bell, Welf immediately rubs it in the face of the other smiths who were also hoping to make a contract.
  • After Ryuu explains the lore behind the Crozzo family and how the swords they made burned down an elven forest with the result being elves hate the Crozzo family, Bell becomes dumbfounded when she explains that she herself doesn't share the hate.
  • When Hermes tricks Bell into peeking on the girls while they're bathing, Bell has a flashback to his grandfather.
    Bell's Grandpa: Bell, peeking is part of a man's romance.
    Bell: Grandpa!
  • Bete gets pissed upon learning that Bell got a glimpse at Aiz while she was naked, but its obvious he's pissed off at the fact that he never got a opportunity himself. He's dragged off by Tione and Tiona, explaining Hermes talked him into it and is getting his just desserts, which is him being tied upside down by his assistant. He's quite happy about it.

Sword Oratoria

  • How the whole Minotaur incident started in the manga adaptation. There were a large group of Minotaurs, but instead of being scared, Bete, Tione, and Tiona all adopt Slasher Smiles. As the three beat down the Minotaurs, they become so terrified they flee from the three, forcing Loki familia to clean up the mess. As a bonus, there were Raul's expressions in the background as it all played out in front of him.
  • Loki's introduction in the spin-off is... about as hilarious as her introduction in the main-series actually. She rushes out of the Loki Familia mansion to grope one of her members, but Aiz, Tione and Tiona all dodge her, leaving Lefiya in the line of fire, causing her to get groped by her goddess. Loki comments Lefiya's boobs became bigger.
  • When Tiona is upset about her small breasts, Loki comes out of nowhere, saying she'll help rub them bigger, but once more, she is dodged and once more, Lefiya is the one that ends up getting groped.
  • While getting a status update, Loki says she's drunk and her hand "might" slip. Aiz then stabs a knife mere centimeters from Loki's fingers and she's Suddenly Sober.
  • The entire exchange between Tione and Amid as they negotiate a price for Tione selling the Cadmus skin to Amid's familia. It starts with Tione demanding more than double Amid's initial offer, shocking even Tione's companions. As it continues, Tione even shamelessly lies about putting their lives on the line to defeat the Cadmus dragon when she just picked it up.
  • When the Goibniu familia see Tiona, they're shocked that the Destroyer is back, and one of them outright faints to learn her weapon, which was custom-made using rare materials and several sleepless nights, was destroyed.
  • While Aiz, Lefiya and the twins go shopping for clothes, the twins pick out a number of girly outfits for Aiz to try on. One of which is Hestia's standard outfit, boob-ribbon included!
  • At the same time as when Hestia tries to do an Indirect Kiss with Bell, Aiz and Loki are going through the same thing with Loki trying to get an Indirect Kiss by feeding Aiz her food, to which Aiz continuously rejects her, before Loki promises to stop if she gets fed Aiz's food. Aiz hears Bell and Hestia going through the same thing in the above scene and remarks how she's not the only one experiencing these problems.
  • Lefiya tries inviting Aiz into a study session with her and Riveria. Unfortunately, Aiz Flashbacks to how much of a Stern Teacher Riveria is and leaves Lefiya to her fate.
  • Tione tries to seduce Finn Through His Stomach. Unfortunately, what she cooked is horrible and Raul can be seen offering Finn stomachache medicines for which Finn is grateful.
    • It turns out to be unnecessary as Finn manages to trick Tione into eating it all, under the guise of them splitting the food.
    • Upon being told she could hang out with Finn if she finishes it quickly, Tione promptly finishes the massive meal in mere moments.
  • Aiz is shocked to learn the loan sword from the Goibniu familia cost 40 million valis, forcing her to work overtime in the Dungeon to pay it off.
  • The Loki Familia needs to get past a crowd. Finn's idea is to just crawl under them using his small size. Tione however doesn't want him to be in danger alone and instead threatens the crowd. It works, and they give her a wide berth.
  • A murder happened in Rivira, and because of the circumstances, every high-levelled female adventurer is a suspect, even the females of the Loki familia that just arrived. However, because they know the female has large breasts, they immediately cross off Tiona as a suspect, making her angry at yet another reminder that she's flat. They also rule out Tione because the female was good at seducing, while Tione... isn't.
  • As part of the murder investigation, it is decided that every female adventurer will be searched, so Bors enthusiastically gives the order for every woman to strip, causing every guy to cheer and every woman to roar in anger. In spite of all that, the women were perfectly happy to let Finn search them since they're big fans of him.
  • After Riveria tells Aiz to give Bell the lap pillow in the main series, she waits expectantly for good news at the guild. Then Aiz walks in, crouched over like a zombie, and softly moaning that he ran away again. Riveria tries valiantly, but ends up bursting into a fit of giggles, much to Aiz's annoyance. This is especially hilarious considering Riveria adivsed Aiz to give him a lap pillow as a well to "compensate him" and to result in her growing as a person, thinking to herself that it wasn't like he would run away or anything.
  • Hermes familia, who are more powerful than they have reported, are shocked to see how powerful Aiz is in action, and they ask themselves if they were even needed for the quest they're doing together.
  • Lefiya catches Aiz with Bell, shocking her speechless and leaving her in a state where the other members of the Loki familia can't approach her.
  • When Aiz comes back from her training session with Bell, Lefiya asks who the boy she was with is, shocking Aiz who thought no one saw her and making her worried she'll be in trouble with the other higher-ups.
  • Aiz lies to Bell about her reasons for giving him a lap pillow, claiming it's because he'd recover faster. Bell doesn't believe it and Aiz admits it's because she wanted to give him one. Bell also admits he likes it but finds it embarassing unless he's unconscious, which causes Aiz to get a glint in her eyes.
  • While Dionysus is talking to Lefiya, Filvis just sits there drinking with all the air of a refined elf. And then Dionysus tells Lefiya that Filvis has been talking about her a lot, making Filvis Spit Take and the air of refinement she was giving is destroyed just like that as Filvis gets embarrassed.
  • Aiz horrifies herself when she comes to the conclusion that Bell's idol and the person he wants to catch up to is Bete.
  • In an omake, Loki manages to convince her familia to wear sailor clothes uniforms:
    • Loki only got uniforms for girls, forcing the guys to wear skirts.
    • Gareth comes to the conclusion that these clothes are what the actual sailors wear instead of the school uniforms they actually are.
    • Riveria is too embarrassed by the uniform to come out of the changing room.
    • Finn, despite being a male, pulls off wearing the girl's uniform quite well, causing Loki and Tione to show their approval.
    Loki: It's a legal trap!
    Tione: It's a really cute schoolgirl cosplay!
    Narration: At that moment, Tione stepped into the realm of the gods.
  • When Bell is at the Loki familia camp and Bete is looking for him, Aiz gets an Imagine Spot of Bell happily reporting his level up to Bete, which makes her younger dream self begin throwing a tantrum. She then lies to Bete's face about where Bell is.
  • At one point when Bell is being his usual self, Aiz wonders if he is uncomfortable with her touching him so much, resulting in her coming to the horrified conclusion that she might be becoming like Loki.
  • Despite Aiz's usual stoic attitude, after Bell accidentally gets a good look at her at the hot spring, the two can't even look at each other without blushing out of mutual embarrassment. She even acts flustered in a way not too different from how Bell would react when she is later questioned about the incident.

Familia Chronicle

  • Mord and his companions realise Lyu's true identity and remember in horror what she and her colleagues did to them. Lyu manages to keep them quiet, by kicking them all in the shins.
  • Chloe is upset upon learning someone was impersonating as her and says she would have tortured them and collected money for using her name. Lunoire calls her a spiteful cat with sleazy methods, prompting Chloe to respond that the muscle-brained human who could only solve things with her fist should shut up, angering Lunoire and they get up close as they Death Glare each other.
  • How Mia ropes Lyuu into working for her. She gives the elf board and food, and then drops the bombshell that the bill is 50,000,000. The best part is how shocked Lyuu is at the fact she was tricked. She tried protesting the absurdity of the bill compared to the value of the board and food she was actually given but Mia isn't having any of it and the protests are ignored.
  • The first time Lyu puts on the pub's maid uniforms, she's actually embarrassed about it and is afraid her old comrades from her familia would laugh at her if they saw her like that.
  • The entire Failure Montage of Lyuu failing to pull off her waitress duties:
    • When Arnya tries to show her how to peel vegetables properly, Lyuu punches her to prevent her from teaching the elf, ruining some ingredients in the process.
    • Lyuu tries doing a cute smile on Syr's advice at the shopkeepers to haggle a cheaper price. Unfortunately, it looks like a Slasher Smile and she just plains scares them.
    • The customers complained about her expression when Lyuu tries to serve them.
    • The punchline is Mia saying Lyuu is a worse employee than she thought it'd be and that her debt will just keep increasing at the rate things were going, shocking Lyuu as she makes comical expressions as she hear those words.
