YMMV / Noblesse

Go To

  • Ass Pull: Regis being able to suddenly summon the family Soul Weapon when things were looking grim in a fight against two Werewolves had a lot of people turning their heads. The closest there was to Foreshadowing was Regis in chapters prior to this event wishing for more power, because he felt that he was falling behind his friends.
  • Archive Panic: It's not as bad as it looks: the chapters are shorter than manga chapters.

  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: The end of chapter 151.
  • Evil Is Cool: Crance
  • Evil Is Sexy: Mary, Crance, Ignes.
    • Among the Union Elders themselves we have Zarga, Urokai, Lunark, Roctis, the 3rd Elder, and the real 1st Elder.
  • Foe Yay: Jake told Rai "You must be a public nemesis to all men with that pretty face." Jake either said that out of jealousy, or he was afraid that Rai was turning him gay...
  • Ho Yay: Between Frank and Rai.
    • As well as M-21 & M-24, & perhaps some Foe Yay with Crombel toward Frankenstein.
    • As for Les Yay: A rather pretty clan leader, Rozaria, stopped fighting with Seira for a moment in order to comment on how beautiful, elegant and ladylike she'd become.
    • Ragar Kertia sighing over the Previous Lord. Possibly also Krasis Bluster. Urokai Agvain was suspiciously Yandere over both the Previous Lord and Raizel's interest in Frankenstein.
  • It Was His Sled: The members of the Raizel Knights.

  • Memetic Badass: Rai
  • Memetic Molester: Dr. Crombel.
  • Memetic Mutation:
    • Rai's "Kneel" and "I didn't give you permission to _____" have become instant memes in South Korea.
    • Likewise for making fun of Regis' "elegance".
    • Rai and Frankenstein are on the way!Explanation 
    • "Dr. Arith can't handle the D." went memetic with the English speaking part of the fandom. Explanation

  • Moe: Seira.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The series is rather mild in nightmare, but several incidents stand out:
    • In Episode 74 When Shinwoo, Yuna, and Ikhan are trying to figure out which buttons in the elevator would lead them to the exit, Jake punches a hole through the door and peeks in, very reminiscent of The Shining. Then he starts prying the doors open...
    • Chapter 232. When 12th Elder goes One-Winged Angel, the way his body contorts, including his face, can be a mild shock to some.
    • And then Chapter 278. Rai with bloody tear... and then when he shows the full extent of his power, the explosion can be seen from space. No wonder even the powerful clan leaders fear him.
    • Chapter 307. Ignes has inadvertently smashed Rai's Berserk Button, and rather than killing her swiftly, he first commands her eyes to bleed.
  • The Scrappy: Jake and Shark.
    • Ignes is also treated this way for similar reasons—she's a despicable person with no redeeming qualities whatsoever. Fans were overjoyed in chapter 307, when she came face-to-face with a very angry Rai.
  • Tear Jerker: M-24's death.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Character: At the start of the series, the class students, such as Shinwoo and Ik-han, looked like they were going to be established as important characters alongside Rai, but have overtime become relatively unimportant to the overall story except to remind Rai and company what they wish to protect.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot:
    • Similar to what's mentioned in They Wasted a Perfectly Good Character, the abortion of Shinwoo and Ik-han's character arcs left a lot of people in confusion, and remain wondering to this very day if they're ever going to be focused on again.
    • During the Traitor Noble invasion on Lukedonia, Gradeus brought up an interesting question as to why Nobles must force themselves to eventually go into eternal sleep, and that there will be some Nobles, such as Gradeus, who don't wish to pointlessly kill themselves. However, this issue doesn't get delved into any deeper, and in the end, Gradeus eventually gets killed off by Franky.
  • Too Cool to Live: Mary
  • Viewer Gender Confusion: Tao is a guy. The 3rd Elder fits the same category as numerous fans were shocked when it was revealed in Chapter 519 that he was male, quite humorously. Ironically, when several fans stated that there was no indication that the 3rd Elder was male, in Chapter 318, Karias referred to him as a "picky guy".
  • The Woobie: M-21 and M-24.
