- Anti-Climax: Company 5 is built as a very real threat, only to fall victim to this.
- Broken Base: Tamaki's "Lucky Lecher" curse. Some find it amusing (especially given the improbable situations she can end up in) while others find it unnecessary fanservice and believe it turns her into a one-note Butt-Monkey.
- Americans Hate Tingle: She was ranked second in the first popularity poll in Japan in spite of this.
- Ensemble Dark Horse: Shinmon Benimaru is extremely popular.
- Growing the Beard: Most fans will agree that the series really starts to pick up steam after the less than stellar Company 5 arc. After the Evangelist and White Hoods are introduced.
- Ho Yay: Benimaru and Konro, if fan-art is anything to go by.
- Nightmare Fuel: The Adolla goes from a MacGuffin to screeching this. It starts when Shinra looks down and see ribcages inside his skeleton's leg. Yes, he sees his own skeleton and it is deformed to contain the Adolla Burst. And it goes From Bad to Worse after that.
- Chapter 77 takes this Up to Eleven with a mass of horrific images and vision. Shinra spans back to reality, somehow the aftereffect of this scene is somehow even worse.
YMMV / Fire Force
