  • Fan Nickname: Has its own page.
  • Generation Xerox: Like her mother Quint, Subaru has a partner and best friend who is female and voiced by Mai Nakahara.
  • No Export for You: The third season, Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS, has yet to be released in the USA, and/or dubbed.
  • Star-Making Role: The series served as this for both Nana Mizuki and Yukari Tamura.
  • Talking to Herself:
    • Arf shares the same dub actress as young Chrono and they do have some conversations together.
    • Nanoha's mother Momoko in the dub shares the same voice as Falin, and has a scene together with her.
    • Nana Mizuki voices Fate, Alicia and Levi, three almost identical looking characters with distinct personalities.
    • Shizuka Ito voices Shario, Otto and Deed.
    • Chiwa Saito, jarringly enough, voices Subaru, Nove and Quattro.
    • Marina Inoue voices Erio, Cinque and Wendi.

    • Kaori Mizuhashi voices Yuuno, Vivio and Sein.
    • Eriko Kigawa voices Ginga, Uno and Tre. The three have a dialogue in the same scene in StrikerS Sound Stage X.
    • Yukana voices Reinforce Zwei and Lucino. Though, it's played straight is other scenes, there is a scene in StrikerS, where they have chat, but the viewer doesn't hear any dialogue, which is a bit hilarious.
    • Natsuko Kuwatani voices Arf, Lutecia, Sette and Auris Gaiz, but this trope is averted.
      • On the other hand, Lutecia lampshades in The Movie 2nd A's audio commentary that she and Arf have really similar voices and then she tries to imitate her voice (teen and child voice), much to Zafira and Fate's surprise. It's even better, if you listen carefully, Lutecia is only close to imitate Arf's voice perfectly, but there are still subtle distinctions.

    • Mai Nakahara voices Teana, Vice's sister Laguna, and Lutecia's mother Megane. Averted.
    • Mikako Takahashi voices the young Chrono and Caro. Completely averted. But played straight with Caro and Friedrich in his baby form.
    • Nozomi Masu voices Alto and Dieci. Averted.
    • Kayo Sakata voices Mariel and Schach. Averted.
    • Ayako Kawasumi voices Ixpellia and the Mariages. Played straight.
    • In the PSP games and accompanying drama CDs - the three Aces and their Material counterparts, obviously; and every character who meets their Dark Piece doppelgängers. The latter case includes Fate, Reinforce, Vita, Shamal, Zafira, and Chrono. Doing the math, Signum is the only character who averts this trope.
    • Gears of Destiny also adds Yuuno and Vivio (Kaori Mizuhashi), Lily-Strosek and Amitie (Haruka Tomatsu). Thoma and Lily also meet their Dark Piece counterparts, though they actually talk with their partners rather than with their enemies.
  • Unfinished Dub: Only the first two seasons were dubbed. StrikerS wouldn't be licensed until 2016 (a full nine years after it aired), by Amazon UK.
  • The Wiki Rule: The Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Wiki.
  • Word of Gay: Nanoha and Fate according to this interview with the creator of the franchise and their voice actresses. Nana Mizuki ups the ante by creating a schedule of Nanoha and Fate's daily routine and she notes that Nanoha and Fate spend time alone with each other every night from 22:00 to 1:00.
