Chrono Break Cannon, fire!

Galaxy Angel, the comedy space anime, was originally based off a series of Space Opera Dating Sim games that dealt with Commander Tact Mayers and his adventures with the Angel-tai (translated in the manga as "Angel Troupe", as opposed to the translated anime's "Angel Brigade", even though both originals use "Angel-tai"). The (arguably more well-known) anime is a clear Alternate Universe, the anime being a parody of Adaptation Decay in general by throwing out practically everything the game had to offer on purpose. This was mostly caused by the combination of the timing of the anime deal and delays in the game's production forcing the anime to air well in advance of the game's release. See the anime page for more information on the show.

In the gameverse, brand new commander Tact Mayers, barely aware of his own job and responsibilities, is thrust into the position of commander of the Elsior and its five ace pilots, the Angel-tai. They're set to protect Shiva, prince of the Transbaal Empire, after the disgraced former heir, Eonia, staged a coup d'etat. Shiva is more than he seems, too (but of course, you only realize this if you get all the special scenes), and all the while, Tact is falling for one of the Angels (If taking the Manga Canon Path, Milfeulle, although the games do not have a set canonical route). Galaxy Angel, Galaxy Angel: Moonlit Lovers and Galaxy Angel: Eternal Lovers cover this point in time, as well as the non-canonical Galaxy Angel EX.

The Galaxy Angel II Sequel Series has Milfeulle trapped as a living battery to the gate between two galaxies. Tact, desperate to save her and devoid of his disbanded Angel-tai, commissions a new Rune Angel-tai from friends and relations of the old ones and personally appoints new leader Shiranami Kazuya. The games in this series are Galaxy Angel II: Zettai Ryouiki no Tobira, Galaxy Angel II: Mugen Kairou no Kagi, and Galaxy Angel II: Eigou Kaiki no Koku.

There is also a manga series. Galaxy Angel was based on the first game, Galaxy Angel Beta on Galaxy Angel: Moonlit Lovers, and Galaxy Angel II on Galaxy Angel II: Zettai Ryouiki no Tobira.

See the character sheet, and would you mind editing it? It desperately needs fans of the series to give it some love.

Tropes used in Galaxy Angel (video game) include:


  • Ace Pilot: Every single one of the Angels is this. Also the Hell Hounds.
  • A Million Is a Statistic (Played straight in the first game. The opening movie shows Eonia's army bombarding the surface of Planet Transbaal. And later we have the Black Moon blasting Satellite City Fargo and Planet Rhome. Both scenes depict the destruction from orbit in a very detailed way, to the point even the good guys comment they cannot estimate the numbers.)
  • A Mind Is a Terrible Thing to Read (Mint suffers from this. In more ways than one in Eternal Lovers, when her powers malfunction and broadcast her thoughts to everyone else.)
  • A Child Shall Lead Them (Shiva Transbaal becomes emperor at the age of ten.)
  • Abusive Precursors: Perhaps. The Black Moon is either an evil factory of destruction or a corrupted factory of destruction, the White Moon is therefore either it's counterpart or its opposite. This makes whomever built it either the Abusive Precursors trope or the Neglectful Precursors trope. This is later subverted in the second game by Noah when you learn the purpose of the twin moons is a deterent against the Val-Fask.
  • Accidental Kiss (Between Tact and Ranpha in the storeroom through the magic of Zero-G.)
  • Adaptation Decay (The anime was a parody of this concept.)
  • AI Is a Crapshoot ( The Black Moon)
  • All Girls Want Bad Boys (Subverted with Milfeulle who reacts to Camus advances with complete dislike or utter fear depending on the medium. On the other hand, Ranpha has traces of this on both, game and manga. In the game, however, it is possible for Ranpha to fall in love with compassionate and noble Tact Mayers, subverting the trope even further.)
  • Allergic to Love (Apricot; in her case not so much "allergic" as "conditioned to throw men into the air.")
  • All There in the Manual (Manga again.)
  • Ascended Fangirl: Chitose at the beginning of the Second Game.
  • Attack Drone (Mint's ship, the Trick Master, is equipped with these. They allow her to attack even as she's ending one attack run and going into another, and her Limit Break sees her release her entire stock to blast away at every ship in range.)
  • Avengers Assemble
  • Attack! Attack! Attack!: For all of Tact's informed tactical (heh, tactical) prowess, this is essentially what your strategy turns into. The only real subversion of the trope is a battle mid-way through the third game where not only is Tact's girlfriend (and therefore strongest Angel in battle) out of commission, but the Elsior is at half health and must escape the battlefield. If you simply attack every ship in sight without carefully choosing which ships to attack and when, you can end up losing the battle very quickly.
  • BFG (Milfeulle's Lucky Star has one equipped and firing it off is her Limit Break. Apricot's Cross Caliber has two smaller ones that are used in unison for her Limit Break. The large railguns on Forte's Happy Trigger and sniper cannons on Lily's Eagle Gazer also count to a lesser degree.)
    • The Chrono Break Cannon is roughly 1/3 the size of the Elle Ciel, and when later mounted on GA-007, it was pretty much 99% of the entire ship. The Luxiole carried the Dual Chrono Break Cannon.
  • Bag of Spilling: For some reason the girls lose some of the hearts they had from previous games making them weaker in combat. Especially awkward with whichever girl you've chosen to be your one true love. Seems they don't love you quite so much anymore.
  • Beehive Barrier: Vanilla and Milfie's Emblem Frames have these. Vanilla's are more powerful by fair margin.
  • Big Bad
  • Big Brother Complex (Noah pretends she has one on Eonia)
  • Big Damn Heroes (Luft Weizen's two instances of these in the first game deserve a special mention.)
    • Not to mention the Imperial Navy reinforcing the Final Weapon suicide run in the final mission of Moonlit Lovers. The last time, and in the most epic fashion, is the White Moon's call for reinforcement that redirected the 8th Fleet during the desperate retreat from Unit 7 being piloted by Wein after he stole it and the subsequent Val-Fasc ambush.
  • Big Eater (Ranpha, Forte, and Chitose. In the first game, Mint sometimes teases Milfeulle about possibly getting fat due to Milfeulle's love of sweets, but in terms of pure volume Milfeulle doesn't really eat much more than Vanilla or Mint.)
  • Big Fancy House (Mint's, rarely seen, mostly from the inside, only in her story path-- but it still counts.)
  • Blood Knight (Guinness Stout, Ranpha's Hell Hound counterpart, and Red-Eye, Forte's Hell Hound counterpart, though Red-Eye is a quiet Blood Knight and Guinness a loud one)
  • Brainwashed
  • Bottle Fairy (Forte, Tequila is a bit, too.)
  • Boss Subtitles (The manga provides captions with the names of each of the members of the Hell Hounds since, unlike their game counterparts, they don't bother introducing themselves with other than the team's name).
  • Bridge Bunnies (Almo and Coco.)
  • Bunny Ears Lawyer (Pretty much every single primary character.)
  • But Thou Must! (An interesting variation occurs at the beginning of the first game when you are requested to take command of the Angel Troupe. While you will inevitably end up taking the position, playing this Trope straight, the amount of times you try to refuse will have an effect on the girls Relationship Values. To elaborate: Ranpha, Forte and Vanilla will be impressed by your dutifulness if you say "yes" the first time or if you refuse only once. On the other hand, if you refuse twice or three times, Mint and Milfeulle will admire the fact you carefully considered the offer before accepting.)
  • Call a Rabbit a Smeerp (Space Rabbits, Space Whales, Space Roses, Space Roe, Space Salmon...)
  • Calling Your Attacks (The Angels in battle. Tact in the cut scenes) (HYPA BEAMU CANNON! HACHA!)
  • The Captain
  • Catgirl (Nano-Nano)
  • Cherry Blossoms
  • Chinese Girl (Ranpha)
  • Climax Boss
  • Colour-Coded for Your Convenience.
  • Converse with the Unconscious In EL when the LI has been shot down due to Val-Fask treachery
  • Cool Big Sis Forte to the other Moon Angels. To a lesser extent, Lily to the other Rune Angels.
  • Cool Ship
  • Critical Existence Failure
  • Cutscene
  • Cutscene Power to the Max Happens every finale, but only with the Angel Tact romances.
  • Cybernetics Eat Your Soul (Played up with the Hell Hounds, after Noa merges them with their Emblem Frames)
  • Dating Sim
  • Defrosting Ice Queen (Ranpha plays this to its greatest degree in her dealings with Tact, not trusting him at all and chewing him out for perceived slights in their initial encounters, but being the most lovestruck of the girls in the continuity where Tact pursues a relationship with her.)
    • Forte also does it to a lesser degree, as she considers Tact to be an Ensign Newbie at first, but eventually starts trusting him.
    • In the Galaxy Angel II trilogy, Anise and Lily's routes have shades of this.
  • The Ditz (Milfeulle Sakuraba. Milfeulle is by no stretch of the imagination stupid; her ditzy behavior stems more from naivete, a lack of knowledge, and a certain slowness to pick things up right away.)
  • Earthshattering Kaboom (Not the Earth but Planet Rhome)
  • Elseworld (Although, technically, the games were supposed to come first.)
  • Emotionless Girl (Vanilla, at first.)
  • The Empath (Mint, although she sometimes jokes that Tact is this since Tact can read the Angels' feelings very easily.)
  • Empathic Weapon (The HALO systems in the Angels' Frames/Wings can read their pilots' desires, and shut down when the wrong person is piloting them or when the usual pilot has a breakdown.)
  • Empathy Pet (Vanilla's "Nanomachine Pet".)
  • Enemy Detecting Radar (Mint's Trick Master has been stated to have been equipped with more powerful radars than other Frames. Coco, the Elsior's radar technician, also frequently warns about enemies appearing both outside of game battles and in them.)
  • Enfante Terrible (Noah, who is actually a humanoid interface the Black Moon's consciousness created to dupe Eonia into going along with its schemes. Subverted in Moonlit Lovers when the real Noah shows up, acts like a brat at first, and can then be persuaded to be helpful.)
  • Escort Mission Several civilian escort missions in Project Galaxy Angel, a single escort mission in Moonlit Lovers in Forte's route although the escortee isn't who he appears, and a single escort mission in Eternal Lovers when Lushati and Wein show up.
  • Evil Chancellor ( Noah in Project Galaxy Angel, Nephelia in Galaxy Angel Moonlit Lovers, and Wein in Galaxy Angel Eternal Lovers.)
  • Evil Costume Switch ( In Galaxy Angel Eternal Lovers, Wein, supposedly Lushati's little brother, isn't really human. He's a Val-Fasc. You learn this when he does away with his normal-looking skin and reveals the Val-Fasc's characteristic white skin with purple markings.)
  • Evil Twin
  • Expansion Pack (Eternal Lovers included a mod for Moonlit Lovers that unlocked Chitose as an available girl.)
  • Eyepatch of Power (Parodied. When Almo & Coco ask Tact about the reason behind Lester's eyepatch, one of the possible answers is that he uses it to conceal a miniature laser ray)
  • Fan Translation (Full English translation patches for the Windows versions: the original Galaxy Angel in December 2009; Galaxy Angel Moonlit Lovers in February 2011, and Galaxy Angel Eternal Lovers in September 2011.)
  • Feelies
  • Femme Fatale
  • The Piloting Narcissist (Who else but Camus?)
  • First Girl Wins If the player as Tact picks Milfeulle as the love interest.
  • First Kiss A major plot point in Milfeulle's route in Moonlit Lovers and is revisited due to another plot point in Eternal Lovers. Vanilla and Chitose get their first kisses near the end of Eternal Lovers, Mint first kisses Tact on the cheek while they're on the plane after Tact rescues her from being trapped by her father (no CG is devoted to this), and Forte first kisses Tact before the battle with Eonia (again, no CG is devoted to this). Ranpha's first kiss is by accident due to a zero-gravity malfunction.
  • Five-Bad Band:
  • Five-Man Band:
  • The Fool (Milfeulle. So, SO much. It is less exaggerated here than in the anime, however.)
  • Fun with Acronyms (The Emblem Frames piloted by the Angels are different from other ships in that each one possesses a Human Brain Artificial Brain Linking Organization System or H.A.L.O. for short.
  • Furo Scene in the first game. Partially subverted, however: the girls happily invite Tact into the furo so he can ogle their beauty...because they aren't naked. They're wearing bathing suits, so there's nothing embarrassing for Tact to see.
  • Genius Bruiser (Forte, Lily.)
  • Genki Girl (Milfeulle, Nano-Nano. Ranpha too unless something pisses her off.)
  • Ghibli Hills (The holodeck and whale rooms.)
  • Glass Cannon (Ranpha's Emblem Frame, the "Kung-Fu Fighter".)
  • Goldfish Poop Gang (The game version of the Hell Hounds)
  • Good Colors, Evil Colors (Where do we start? The Transbaal Military uniform is composed of White and Black in equal amounts as well as a bit of Gold. The Angels, in particular, got one extra color each: Pink for Milfeulle, Cheery Red for Ranpha, Blue for Mint, Natural Green for Vanilla and Purple for Forte (this one is a surbversion since Forte is certainly not evil but rather more mature). Takuto, as the commander, also gets some Blue and Cheery Red. Finally, their battleships are mostly White with some Blue, Gold and Natural Greens. The White Moon is mostly White with some Gold and the Angel Frames reflect their pilot's colors.
    • As for the bad guys, there's Eonia and Sherry whom dress in Black and Purple. The Hell Hounds get Black, Bloody Red, Unnatural Green, Purple, Silver and Dark Blue. All of their ships are Black with Bloody Red or Purple. And finally, there's the Black Moon which is mostly Black with some Bloody Red.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Red-Eye has a scar that goes from between his eyes down to his chest. Sherry Bristol has one across her left cheek.
  • Guide Dang It (Although this editor did manage to get all of Shiva's CGs once in the first game, she hasn't been able to replicate the feat since.)
    • The problem is that getting the subroute where those CGs are unlocked from requires you to choose very specific responses and to visit certain areas that don't have portraits on them. You can screw it up as early as chapter 2. The only other CG in the relevant collection requires said subroute to NOT occur.
    • To clarify, here's how to get the subroute: Step one, when you first meet Prince Shiva at the beginning of the game, you need to be honest with him (not fudging the truth) when he asks what's happened to the White Moon and planet Transbaal. Step two, in the Forte-centric chapter, during one of the free time segments you'll find both Forte and Shiva in the vending machines area. Both the top and middle choices increase Forte's affection; to set up more meetings with Shiva later, however, you need to pick the middle choice. Step three, every opportunity after that you get a free time segment, choose at least one time block to visit Shiva in the royal room. If you successfully pursue every opportunity, you should begin Shiva's subroute right before Tact has to pick a girl to ask to the dance.
  • Heroic BSOD (Each girl has such a major one in Eternal Lovers that it messes up their minds, causing Milfeulle to get amnesia, Ranpha to reflexively hit Tact if he touches her, Mint's telepathy to reverse itself and broadcast Mint's thoughts instead, Forte reflexively screaming in fear when trying to pick up a gun, Vanilla's nanomachine pet mutating into a horrible wolf monster, and Chitose transferring her romantic feelings for Tact to Lester instead.)
  • Heroic Mime (In the games where you play him, Tact only gets to speak in certain pivotal scenes. Kazuya, however, gets the full voice treatment, but you can turn him off.)
  • Hidden Agenda Villain (Noah until Moonlit Lovers.)
  • Hot-Blooded (Guinness Stout, Ranpha's Hell Hounds counterpart (naturally, voiced by Nobuyuki Hiyama). Anise also tends towards this personality type.)
    • Heck, Guinness is so Hot-Blooded that a Fan Translation of the first game attaches five exclamation points to just about everything he says, if only to point out how hammy Hiyama's voice acting for him is.
  • Holding Back the Phlebotinum: The Chrono Break Cannon, be it due to it's impracticality, it's charge time, or the fact that it's a giant Wave Motion Gun (the latter meaning it's so powerful if it fell into the wrong hands it would cause a tragedy). Wein proves that to be true in Eternal Lovers.
  • Hundred-Percent Completion (Aside from the regular storyline CGs and those that you have to get to proceed through a girl's route, there are a few extra CGs that you have to work a little harder to get.)
  • Instant Win Condition: Both ways in combat - if the ship Tact is on is ever destroyed, the mission automatically ends in failure. This takes precedence over victory conditions, so if you had just defeated that target flagship just seconds before, you still lose. On the flip side, if the Elsior is surrounded by enemy ships and all of the target opponents are defeated, the remaining enemies will just stop.
  • Irony (Five years before the start of the first game, Eonia Transbaal showed an abnormal interest in the Lost Technology of the White Moon and, as a result, he was stripped of his royal rights and exiled from the Transbaal Empire. Now, guess what does he find while wandering out there? He even lampshades this fact in the last-to-next chapter.)
  • It's All My Fault (This is Tact's general demeanor after being forced to shoot down his girlfriend, severely injuring her, because of a combination of Val-Fasc sabotage and an argument he had with his girlfriend before the battle in which that shooting was necessary)
  • Jack of All Stats (Kazuya's "Brave Heart" and Milfeulle's "Lucky Star".)
  • Keystone Army: The opposing forces, all the time.
  • Last of His Kind (Nano-Nano.)
  • Late Arrival Spoiler (Averted. While learning in the first game that Shiva is a girl means that starting from the second will inevitably spoil you, the ads for the later games don't even show the character in question.)
  • Leitmotif (And how! Just to give you an idea, every single Angel has her own musical piece; including slow and vocalized versions.)
  • Level Up At Intimacy 5
  • Lightning Bruiser Your chosen girl once her affection scores are high enough, yes, even Vanilla.
  • Lost Technology
  • Love Makes You Evil (In the manga. It is hinted several times that the main reason behind Eonia's coup'd etat was his love for the Moon Goddess Shatyarn. Averted in the game, where Eonia's motivation is to make the Empire obscenely rich and powerful.)
  • The Man Behind the Man (In Project GA with Eonia and Noah. Then in Moonlit Lovers with Lezom Mer Zom and Nephelia. More like "The Woman Behind the Man"...
  • Macross Missile Massacre (Forte's ship, the Happy Trigger, gets one of these as her Limit Break.)
  • Mathematician's Answer: In EL when Vanilla and Chitose are exchanging diaries, Chitose asks what type of woman Tact would like. Vanilla's answer? One that makes good coffee.
  • Mecha-Mooks (Played straight in every single one of the games, where the antagonist's army is composed mostly of unmaned battleships with only a very few organic beings around. Probably done in order to keep the line between good and evil clear.)
  • Mighty Glacier (Forte's Emblem Frame, the "Happy Trigger".)
  • Mismatched Eyes (Red-Eye, Forte's Hell Hound counterpart. His right eye is purple and you can guess the color of the left one.)
  • Mission Control
  • More Friends More Benefits
  • Mysterious Waif (Some paths' Chitose, arguably, and definitely the manga version of her.)
    • Also Shatyarn.
    • Also Lushati.
  • Nanomachines
  • Neglectful Precursors: Those who created the Black and White Moon are either this or outright Abusive Precursors. See Abusive Precursors above.
  • Nerd Glasses (Vermouth Matin, Vanilla's Hell Hounds counterpart.)
  • New Era Speech (Eonia Transbaal broadcasts one of these after executing a coup'd etat in the beginning of the first game.)
  • Noble Fugitive (The first game has Shiva being pursued by Eonia's Forces.)
  • Non-Lethal KO (If any one of the Angels gets shot down in battle, she automatically withdraws back to the hangar so her Emblem Frame can be fixed. But after the battle she scolds you for your subpar orders.)
  • The Obi-Wan
    • Luft to Tact
    • Forte to both Tact and Lily
    • Tact to Kazuya
  • Oddly-Named Sequel 2: Electric Boogaloo
  • The Ojou (Mint, and this is the reason for her charming "-desu wa" form of speech)
  • Oh Crap Happens to the heroes side and the antagonists, in EL when Wein makes Unit 7 grow wingsis a collective moment for the Elsior and the Angels.
    • Also Prince Eonia when he sees the Chrono Break Cannon coming right towards him.
  • Older Than They Look (Also Mint) The Val-Fasc, many are Really Seven Hundred Years Old. Also Noah.
  • One Head Taller (Tact to Mint/Vanilla if he pursues their respective routes.)
  • One-Winged Angel (Though it's not the Angels themselves who pull it.)
  • Only Mostly Dead
  • Only Sane Man (Lester feels this way sometimes.)
  • Precursors
  • Power Gives You Wings (A prevalent theme in all the games. The Moon Angel Tai Frames get a set of feathery white angelic wings; in the case of the Rune Angels, the wings are the same color as their ships. Finally, the Hell Hounds' Dark Angels get a pair of skeletal purple solid wings after their final power up.
  • Power Limiter
  • The Power of Love (An important concept since the Emblem Frames are powered by the emotions and state of mind of their pilot. Whoever is Takuto's girlfriend is essentially an unstoppable killing machine, even The Medic Vanilla.)
    • In the original game Takuto has choice to dump the girl. This makes her absolutely worthless in the final 2 battles and makes those two battles A LOT harder.
    • Invoked Trope by Tact in the first Galaxy Angel II videogame. Tact gives Kazuya and Kazuya's chosen date a free pass to a normally-pricey luxury health resort/beach spa precisely because he's learned from firsthand experience how powerful an Angel in love is, so he has an ulterior motive (as well as the caring motive) to give Kazuya a pass that can help him and his chosen Angel become closer.
  • The President's Daughter ( Shiva, who is the secret daughter of Moon Goddess Shatoyarn and Emperor Gerard Transbaal. Her safety is the Angel Troupe and Tact's first priority).
  • Psycho Rangers (The Hell Hounds.)
  • Psycho for Hire (The manga versions of the Hell Hounds.)
  • Quirky Miniboss Squad (The Hell Hounds are a lot more quirky than creepy in the game; the manga's got its characters like Lulu.)
  • Rank Inflation (For the Emblem Frames' stats)
  • The Real Remington Steele (Happens with the character of Noah. In the first game she is revealed to be a humanoid interface created by the sentient Black Moon in order to manipulate Eonia. Yet in the second game we find out there is effectively a human Noah whom was sealed in the, later salvaged, core of the Black Moon.)
  • Rebellious Princess (Shiva.)
  • Rei Ayanami Expy: Vanilla, but unlike Rei, Vanilla can eventually develop emotions and have her own happy ending.
  • Reliable Traitor Wein from Eternal Lovers. He backstabs our heroes, but a speech from whoever is Tact's girlfriend, after a time-delayed reaction, causes him to sacrifice himself to get Lushati to safety, proving the Angel's opinion that he really does have a heart.
  • Rival Turned Evil (At least in the manga, if you count the romance definition of "rival".)
  • Rocket Punch (Ranpha's ship, the Kung-Fu Fighter, has this as its Limit Break.)
  • Running Gag Milfie's luck causing rain when the team goes for a picnic.
    • Ranpha either yelling at or hitting Tact whenever she thinks he's made a romantic mistake of some kind. Not on her own route though, where she acts lovey-dovey to Tact instead. Of course, then the running gag is Ranpha's endearing yet cavities-inducing constant invocation of romance tropes.
  • Schrodingers Cat (The manga keeps Eonia alive and pins the later battles on him instead of the Val-Fasq conspiracy.)
  • The Stoic (Red-Eye, Forte's Hell Hound counterpart. Vanilla H too, at least at first.)
  • Serious Business (Ranpha and Forte's argument over curry in Moonlit Lovers. War is curry supremacy.)
    • Ranpha and Forte also have a "serious" argument over radish and carrot in the GA 1. Saying that you (Takuto) prefer potatoes instead is not a good idea.
  • Shipper on Deck The Bridge Bunnies, Coco and Almo are this with Tact and his chosen Angel. Coco sometimes ships Tact with Lester instead, but this is a joke on Coco's part and Coco is as enthusiastic about an Angel romance as Almo is.
  • Sickeningly Sweethearts: Ranpha and Tact.
  • Shy Blue-Haired Girl: (The game version of Chitose comes as a perfect example. Highly intelligent and disciplined. Her shyness is used mostly as comic relief.)
  • Sixth Ranger (Chitose, Natsume, half the GAII cast.)
  • Sliding Scale of Idealism Versus Cynicism Heavily Idealist
  • Space X (anything you can imagine, there's a space version of it. The only thing that seems to be different from the normal version is that the space version has "space" in its name. The exception is the space Whales, who are some kind of magical animal.
  • Spell My Name with an "S" (The official source likes to change things around just when we've gotten used to the old spellings. Elsior was fine, it was around for a few games, but then all of a sudden, it's called the Elle Ciel instead, which doesn't even match the katakana. Also, many of the food-based names purposely misspell the food, like Milfeulle [millefeuille].)
  • Spin-Off
  • Space Whale (The Space Whale and Space Whale Jr. Of course, they don't actually live in the void of space because that would just be ridiculous.)
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad (While the game had a route for each girl, the manga used Milfeulle as the main Love Interest from the beginning and, therefore, focused mostly on her. Then Chitose came out of nowhere and got the second volume of Beta all for herself as well as plenty of the first and third; all while the rest of the team got only one chapter for each.)
  • Stalker with a Crush (Camus O. Laphroaig, Milfeulle's Hell Hounds counterpart.)
  • Sufficiently Advanced Alien (The Val-Fasq.)
  • Super Mode ( When the Angels have their Emblem Frame limiter's removed, they sprout wings as a result. More noticeable in the first game due to Moonlight Lovers upping the Ante by making endgame mooks very powerful.
  • Supporting Leader (Luft, and Tact once he passes the torch.)
  • Sweet Polly Oliver (Shiva)
  • Taking You with Me ( Sherry Bristol unsuccessfully attempts to do this against the Elsior and dies as a result.)
  • Team Shot
  • Theme Naming (The Angels and several of the female supporting cast members are named after different kinds of sweets and desserts. Villains, on the other hand, are named after alcoholic drinks.)
  • There Are No Therapists: (Subverted...sort of. Both, the Elsior and the Luxiole, have a single counselor each one. On the other hand, the fact Tact and Kazuya are responsible for the mental health of their respective teams of pilots without any qualifications beyond being The Empath and a Nice Guy respectively is a bit troubling.)
  • The Evil Prince (Eonia Transbaal was exiled five years before the start of Project GA.)
  • The War Has Just Begun: The end of Moonlit Lovers is pretty much this.
  • Title Drop At the end of Eternal Lovers.
  • Trademark Favourite Food (Mint enjoys her candy, Ranpha eats all spicy foods, Forte devours oden, Milfie consumes and makes sweets, Vanilla prefers chiffon tea cakes. Dr. Cera loves Vanilla's coffee. Tact rapidly grows an appreciation for a food depending on your partner.)
  • Tsundere (Anise is very much a type-A.)(Ranpha in the first game before rapidly entering a perpetual dere-mode if pursued.)
  • True Companions: (Tact and the Angels, it's stated that the entire crew of the Elsior and the Angels are this as well.)
  • 2-D Space (Averted in the first trilogy. Played straight in Galaxy Angel II.)
  • Unstoppable Rage (A few of the girls go into this during the final scene of the first game, literally blasting through hordes of enemy units all at once to rescue Tact.)
  • Visionary Villain (Eonia Transbaal. Of course, he thinks Utopia Justifies the Means.)
  • Wave Motion Gun (The Chrono Break Cannon in the first trilogy and the Dual Chrono Break Cannon in Galaxy Angel II.)
  • We Are Team Cannon Fodder: During the first game, the remnants of the Imperial Navy might as well be annoying distraction against Eonia, due to how ridiculously strong the Angel Brigade is. Gloriously inverted in both Moonlit Lover and Eternal Lovers. The Imperial Navy even pulls a Big Damn Heroes on you during the final battle in Moonlit Lover, and are so effective in wiping out enemies they are basically responsible in destroying half the invading army alongside you.
  • Web Games: When searching the internet for the Galaxy Angel games, it is easier to find the Flash game Galaxy Angel Sim Date. It was created by English speaking fans, and seems to resemble anime characterization (it may be an unintentional Recursive Adaptation)... except for the out-of-character swearing.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist (Eonia wants to use the power of Lost Technology to expand the limits of the Transbaal Empire and bring more wealth and prosperity to its populace. And he's willing to do anything and everything to achieve said goal.)
  • What Could Have Been: (When asked to make a sixth angel, the creator submitted a Tomboy with short hair and glasses. Due to Executive Meddling, Yamato Nadeshiko Chitose was used instead.)
  • When She Smiles (Vanilla plays this Trope to full effect.)
  • White-Haired Pretty Boy (Lester)
  • White-Haired Pretty Girl (Cera.)
  • Witch Species (Kahlua's.)
  • Worthy Opponent (Hell Hounds, sort of.)
  • Yamato Nadeshiko: subverted by Chitose. She looks the part but gets a little too devoted in the anime. Played straight in the games, unless one counts Chitose's mental delusion in her route in Eternal Lovers, but that wasn't her fault.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair
  • Zettai Ryouiki (Mint. Grade A.)

Also see Galaxy Angel and Galaxy Angel Rune; though all of the characters have either been removed or exaggerated and the plot is completely gone, a few tropes are still shared.
