- Alas, Poor Villain: Charles and Ray. Oh God, Charles and Ray.
- Dewey Novak himself gets this in the manga.
- And the Fandom Rejoiced: The announcement of the sequel series Eureka Seven AO. ENOUGH SAID.
- Arc Fatigue: Arguably the Mine Arc, where the crew is trying to repair the Gecko, which ranges from roughly episodes 15-20. Most of the episodes include a lot of Angst on the parts of Renton and Eureka and Holland's abusive behavior towards Renton reaches its upper limits. Fortunately, the Charles and Ray Arc begins almost directly after, which is where the series begins to pick up in steam again, which it manages to maintain for the remainder of the plot.
- Complete Monster: Dewey Novak. He doesn't care about anyone, pretends to like Anemone so that he can use her as a tool, and sacrifices civilians and his own soldiers alike to test his weapons against the Scub corals without any remorse. It is revealed in the end, that he just wants to destroy everything, humans, Scub corals and the world itself.
- Crowning Music of Awesome: The entire soundtrack. The first opening is awesome, and it only gets better from there.
- The final opening, "Sakura". Amazing Freaking Grace indeed.
- Storywriter. Sounds good-ish with casual listening. Now try playing it during the battle sequences.
- Get It By Your Hands. 8 minutes of pure awesome.
- DAYS also has a pretty sweet remix on the movie's soundtrack.
- Niji, the song that plays during the Nirvash's last evolution and the ensuing final battle definitely counts.
- Okay, a special note must go to Shounen Heart, notable for being so gosh darn happy. Then again, given that it's by Home Made Kazoku, this is little surprise. Bonus points for appearing in Ouendan 2 and... whatever this is.
- Everyone Is Jesus in Purgatory: Played with in the soccer episode. Norb says they should play soccer and several people ponder why they're playing soccer. At the end, Norb says something along the lines of "If you had fun, that's good. If you learned something, that's good too."
- Growing the Beard: Starts off inauspicious, starts picking up once the Beams are introduced, picks up even more after episode 26, and explodes about halfway during the second season.
- Jerkass Woobie: Anemone, though by the end she's more of a Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds.
- Magnificent Bastard: Dewey Novak. Enough said.
- Moral Event Horizon: Dewey blasts it to bits. Repeatedly.
- Also, Movie!Hap and Movie!Stoner
- Never Live It Down: Okay, Holland is a total prick to Renton in the first half of the series. Some people seem to forget that he grows out of it in the latter half and claim he remains an insufferable douchebag throughout.
- In a way he does. He just doesn't vent it specifically on Renton that much, and at least actively tries to reign himself in.
- Nightmare Fuel: Renton's demonic-level rampage in Episode 20. After being sent into an Angst Coma brought on by hatred towards Holland, feelings for Eureka, and hate towards his immaturity, Renton has the mother-of-all-freakouts as enemy mechs are swarming him. He goes into a Foe-Tossing Charge, maiming, bisecting, gutting, slicing, and smashing every single machine roaring toward him. Worse, Nirvash is soon sporting RED EYES FROM HELL.
- This is only the half of it. It got a HELL of a lot worse when his stress reached it peak. He imagined a shadow coming at him with his face, but twisted into a psycho Slasher Smile, and letting off a maniacal Evil Laugh. Renton proceeded to dismember the very last mech that attacked him, which had already been thrashed into submission. It's been dismantled to the point you can see the cockpit of the man piloting it. However... Renton, with a final blood-curdling scream, throttles Nirvash's foot right down on the human, crushing him like a cockroach. When Renton has calmed down, he raises Nirvash's leg... and you can see a SEVERED HUMAN ARM sticking to its foot slough off and splatter to the ground, with GALLONS OF BLOOD spilling off the edge. Worst of all, it has a wedding ring on the finger. HE WAS A FATHER. As soon as Renton spots this, his eyes snap open with genuine horror. You hear a few staggered heartbeats... then the poor kid throws up from shock and repulsion. The next episode, he's stuck in a Heroic BSOD, and finally cries his eyes out for several agonized minutes.
- Replacement Goldfish: It can be argued that the Beams, who were unable to have children of their own, saw Renton as this.
- The Scrappy: Those Goddamn kids. Linck in particular.
- Maurice shows his Scrappy colors later on, when they're lost on Earth. "Only love me, mama! No one else!" And then Renton and Eureka just have to go and be so damn understanding about it.
- To be fair, they are kids. They're away from home, in an unfamiliar place, and their "Mama" is undergoing strange, hard-to-understand (for a kid) changes. There's also the whole part about Eureka being their only caregiver after their parents died by her hands.
- Shown Their Work: Well to some degree, but the pre-print sheet of the Ray=Out magazine which uses the Pacific State picture has all the correct cut markings, color control fields and signs, the only thing missing was the back cover, because that would be printed on the same sheet, but it might be a preprint of just the cover to look at the composition of parts, which would work.
- Tastes Like Diabetes: The ending could cause you to go into insulin shock even if you're not diabetic.
- Tear Jerker: Hope you have your Kleenex box nearby.
- Wangst: Renton for around half of the first episode. Stays in sight for a while before it evolves into genuine Angst and then disappears.
- What Do You Mean It's for Kids?: As confirmed by the screenwriter Dai Sato, Eureka Seven aired at 7 AM on Sunday mornings in Japan. The large amount of violence, however, caused the English dub to air at 1:30 am on Adult Swim.
- It is also interesting to note that Studio 23, a channel in the Philippines, aired the Tagalog dub at 10 AM.
