Adaptation Induced Plothole : The anime depicts Rias and the Occult Research Club watching over Issei as he meets Raynare, and Rias ordering them not to approach him despite the danger Raynare possesses, implying she was waiting for Raynare to kill him so she could recruit him into her peerage.

Him having it is what summoned High school dxd tropes and led to his revival, something that wouldn't be needed if she was watching over him like the anime depicted and was expecting him to die. Furthermore, its made clear that someone doesn't have to die to be recruited into a peerage, as demonstrated by Sona's pawns Saji and Ruruko, and later with Xenovia and Rossweisse, raising the question that if Rias really wanted him to her peerage, why didn't she just ask him upfront?

All Just a Dream : The 2nd special episode where Issei has an erotic dream of Akeno giving him a private lesson. Upon waking up, he finds himself hugging Asia, which prompts an angry response from Rassei. All-Loving Hero : Archangel Michael. He's really deserving of his title. The High school dxd tropes male character who doesn't seem to even be remotely close as a pervert is ironically Vali, his rival.

Heroes such as King Arthur and Cao Cao are featured as well. Telling it to the chief gods of those myths that "they're just myths" isn't exactly going to end well though. All Women Are Lustful : While Issei is well known for his sex drive, there are many, many situations initiated by the girls in which even he is taken aback.

Meanwhile Boosted Gear belongs to Issei HyoudouHigh school dxd tropes completely unremarkable human who couldn't even manifest his Sacred Gear until after his First Episode Resurrection.

As the plot wears on, the trope gets examined further.

This makes him exactly as dangerous as it sounds. Art-Shifted Sequel : HERO - the anime adaptation's fourth season - sees a switch from TNK to Passione and with it the art style changed from a sharp, shonen-like art style to an overall softer-looking style that is much more in line with the light novel's original illustrations.

Ascended Demon : Subverted with Asia. Even after becoming a devil, she is still very devout and attempts to pray and read the Bible frequently. However, she is always stopped midway by sharp headaches that emerge as a result of devils not being allowed near the presence of God.

Asia is also killed by Raynare at the end of the first volume when the latter steals her Sacred Gear. She too is revived by Rias as a Bishop.

Only Issei can stand up to him among the new generation of devils. Bad Present : The last three episodes of BorN expicitly takes place in an alternate reality thanks to Loki traveling back in time from the future. Bait-and-Switch Lesbians : Most of, if not all the yuri scenes between the girls of the Occult Research Club are done just to get Issei into the mood before the compulsory Moment Killer.

Balanced Harem : For the most part. Rias is the main heroine and Issei's favoritebut he gives a fair share of attention to every member of his harem and openly intends to Marry Them All. Rias is only more equal than the others by virtue of being their King and each relationship gets plenty of focus and development. Barbie Doll Anatomy : In the anime's opening the girls most noticeably Asia have nipples but the crotches of barbie dolls, but early in the manga even Issei lacks nipples, though in the manga the girls use Godiva Hair too.
