This page contains examples of:

  • Ambition Is Evil: Minerva is willing to do anything to get what she wants. No matter the price.
  • Anti-Villain: The Special Sorcery Service just wants to save Artemisia after she helped them all. Minerva later becomes a more direct villain.
  • The Brute: Minerva's body is a normal body of an attractive woman. She does not have muscles and neither appears to be a brute but her fighting style is also nothing subtle or gentle. Her fighting style is based entirely on brute strength.

  • Child Hater: If there is a trope that symbolize Minerva, this would certainly be the perfect trope for her.
  • Dark Action Girl: Minerva is cruel, cold, sadistic and vile. While reliant on her powers most of the time, she is quite tough and versed in hand-to-hand combat.
  • Evil Brit: Minerva came from England and she is English origin.
  • Face of a Thug: Leonora Sears has a mean look and a somewhat androgynous appearance, yet quickly breaks down crying when threatened for info, much to the shock of the AST members interrogating her.
  • Greater-Scope Villain Isaac Westcott serves this role in this prequel spin-off. The organization which Mikie Okamine and other SSS Wizards are fighting against are the DEM Industries. After the protagonists discovered the true horror that DEM Industries are performing in humans, they immediately turn against them and a few Wizards of AST began to help the Rebels from SSS to free Artemisia from DEM's hands. Apparently, Edgar F. Carrol was more like a Big Bad Wannabe in the end.

  • Handicapped Badass: Normally, Cecil O'Brien's blind and bound to a wheelchair, but she's a very competent fighter once she's in her CR-Unit.
  • Knight of Cerebus: As soon as Minerva appears, the humour level drops, the becomes story dark and horrifying. Once she made her appearance, the story was no longer an ecchi comedy.
  • The Lad-ette: Ashley Sinclair is ill-tempered, eager to fight, and has very masculine speech patterns in Japanese.
  • The Leader: The SSS trio featured her generally take orders from Cecil.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Depending on the source, the name of this spinoff manga may either be Date AST Like or Date A Strike. Or even Date A Stlike.
