- Angst? What Angst?: For someone who's just been thrust into a world of fighting and seeing death and her fellow humans get killed before her eyes, Yukina takes it all surprisingly in stride. Her refusal to pilot in episode 7 seemed to concern itself more with Ken dying at the end of it than anything else.
- Damsel Scrappy: Yukina became this in the first half of the show, with many fans becoming frustrated with the routine of Yukina getting captured by the Efidolg and Ken coming to her rescue.
- Fan-Preferred Couple: Towards the second half of the show, as quite a few western viewers became frustrated with Yukina and began to like Muetta, they started to gravitate towards Ken/Muetta on the few occasions they worked together.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: Meta-example for the English dub, wherein Johnny Yong Bosch, widely known for being a shonen action lead, is cast as an Ordinary High-School Student student supporting character who desperately tries and fails to either become a Mecha pilot or win over the girl of his dreams.
