  • Adventurer Outfit: In chapter 16, the Green Unit has a design that resembles it.
  • Affably Evil: Charlotte has a major god complex, eats people, and is the first to suggest killing someone. Can also be reasonable and seems to have a high opinion of the titular company.

    • Really, most of the giantesses fall under this, with the only ones to avert it so far being Charlotte and Marjorie.
  • Getting Eaten Is Harmless: Subverted in chapter 5. After Charlotte eats him, we see Messy Miles at the end of the chapter inside her stomach, still very much alive. However, right as he starts talking about what his next prank could be, she starts to digest him.
  • A God Am I: Charlotte thinks her newfound size makes her a god, at least in the Prologue.

  • Liminal Time: Julia touched the anchor where the ghost captain is trapped in the middle of the day, but he only wakes up at sunset, implying that he can only appear at night.
  • Marshmallow Hell: All employees go through it eventually. Usually because they wind up falling into a giantess' cleavage.
  • Ms. Fanservice: All the giantesses are included in this trope.
  • Nice Girl:
    • Helena decided to use her newfound size to become a superhero, and when she's not stopping crime she's mostly friendly to everyone.
    • Although understandably upset at the painful pranks of the Saci, Jessica never retaliates against the crew whom she thought was responsible. She later helps clear up the trouble and apologizes for the misunderstanding.

  • Womb Level: In chapter 18, Dante travels through the intravisceral space of Marjorie's organism, including visiting her womb.
  • What Have I Done: Patricia after she angrily tosses the coatis into the horizon. Fortunately, they landed safely.
