  • Face–Heel Turn: In the music video for "TONDEMO-WONDERZ", the girl accidentally breaks her friend's necklace, straining their relationship. When he's next seen, he has Dull Eyes of Unhappiness, has lackeys that start vandalizing the city, and appears to set up a massive bomb. When the girl goes to stop him, the "bomb" goes off to reveal that it's a box of confetti, and the "vandalism" turns out to be a big apology message to her. Cue Tears of Joy, and the two of them promptly reunite.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: "Myriad of Ages Lullaby" and "A Millennium and the Spiral, For Things that Fall" feature Nagare, the child of a human woman and a male ayakashi.
  • Lyrical Dissonance:
    • "Weekend (Worldend) is Coming!" is an adorable pop song about how war shatters a young schoolgirl's heart by taking her crush away.
    • "The WANDERLAST" is a serene chiptune about an android who is about to meet her end.
    • "*Hello, Planet." begins with a robot waking up after the apocalypse and wanders through a deserted wasteland to find her master. The music video ends with a happy closing melody in a scene where the robot dies in front of her master's grave.
  • Sailor Fuku: The illustrations for "A Millennium and the Spiral, For Things that Fall" and "Ki Ki Kai Kai" depict Nagare as a young boy in a gakuran.
  • Shout-Out:
    • "For Campanella" is based on Night on the Galactic Railroad.
    • "Tiger Rampage" is based on The Moon Over the Mountain by Atsushi Nakajima.

  • Stepford Smiler: "Little Cry of The Abyss" is about a mermaid in unrequited love with a human male. The lyrics include the line "Even if I knew it's all in vain / would I force myself to smile and be hurt? / I pretended to be tough and happy when I couldn't tell of my love".
  • Word Salad Lyrics: "TONDEMO-WONDERZ" is through and through a denpa song, with lyrics that make little to no sense together but sound good.
  • Youkai: The Ayakashi series focuses on youkai in modern Japan, known here as ayakashi. Kei, the main character of "A(ma)YAKASHI Diary" and "A(ma)YAKASHI Monoganasy", has been writing a diary where he blames imaginary ayakashi for everything bad that happens to him.
