Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion is a two-season anime television series that aired from 2006 to 2008; it takes place in an Alternate History timeline where the British Empire won the Revolutionary War, but lost a later European conflict against Napoleon (who went on to conquer the British Isles and forced the Empire into fleeing to America). The British-controlled America evolved into the Holy Britannian Empire, which eventually gained control of over a third of the world. Seven years before the beginning of the show's main story, Britannia launched an invasion of Japan to secure that country's stocks of a rare mineral that makes a new power source possible. Britannia's army of powerful Humongous Mecha—the "Knightmares"—ended the conflict in short order. After the victory, Britannia stripped Japan of its autonomy, its national identity, and even its name. The Empire refers to conquered countries by a numerical designation based on when it conquered the territory; in this case, Japan became "Area 11", and Britannians began referring to Japanese citizens as "Elevens".Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })In the present day, two childhood friends run into each other by chance after years of separation: Suzaku Kururugi and Lelouch Lamperouge. Suzaku is a career soldier of Japanese origin who hates bloodshed; having joined the ranks of the Britannian military, he hopes to gain enough authority to change the system from within and return a number of once-lost rights back to Area 11. Lelouch is an exiled Britannian prince in hiding; he wishes to crush Britannia from the outside to both avenge his assassinated mother and create a safe future for his disabled sister, but he has become disillusioned by the inability to act without reprisal from Britannia's police and military forces.All of this changes when Lelouch encounters a Mysterious Waif called C.C. (pronounced as "See Two"), a refugee from a top-secret Britannian research project. She offers Lelouch a Faustian deal (which he accepts) that grants him "The Power Of The King", otherwise known as a "Geass". Lelouch's Geass manifests as a Magical Eye which allows him to issue a single absolute command to any individual—up to and including suicide—that the affected individual must follow to the best of their abilities.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })Combined with his already-remarkable intelligence, the Geass gives Lelouch the chance to finally make his move against Britannia. He assumes the guise of a mysterious masked freedom fighter called "Zero", makes contact with a ragtag group of Japanese freedom fighters, and soon molds the group into his own personal army, which he calls "The Black Knights". In the meantime, Suzaku receives an amazing opportunity of his own: the Britannian Empire hand-picks him to become the test pilot of its newest Knightmare prototype, the Lancelot—and his decision to pilot that Knightmare puts Suzaku on a direct crash course with Lelouch as two friends, unaware of each other's identity, both fight in their own way to reform a corrupt empire.Code Geass began airing in October 2006 and became a runaway success—it spawned a merchandising juggernaut and won numerous industry awards. As the brainchild of Goro Taniguchi and Ichiro Okouchi (responsible for the anime adaption of Planetes), Geass brought their style and flair for the dramatic to the Real Robot Genre. The series also received a good bit of early word-of-mouth when CLAMP was announced as the show's character designers.The show's second season, Code Geass R2, aired on Japanese television from April to September 2008. The reception to R2 was... varied. Critically, it was still well received, and won a number of awards. Some fans viewed certain scenes as distilled awesome or charmingly exaggerated, while others viewed them through a more cynical light; these clashes of opinion resulted in everyone creating tons of memes.Bandai Entertainment originally licensed both seasons of Geass and the first three manga in America until its closure in 2012. The show also ran in its entirety on [adult swim]. Funimation rescued the license (and grabbed the license for Code Geass: Akito the Exiled, to boot) in 2013; it released the show on DVD and Blu-Ray on October 4, 2016. It is also up for streaming on their site with the first four episodes released on August 23, 2016.11 years after the show premiered, a trio of Compilation Movies were released, retelling the series. The first movie (Initiation) released on October 21, 2017. The second (Transgression) was released on February 10, 2018 and the third (Glorification) movie was released on May 26, 2018. Following them Sunrise released a sequel film, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Re;surrection on February 9, 2019. Re;surrection takes place one year after the Zero Requiem.For side stories, spin-offs, and various other adaptations related to this anime, see the Franchise page.

In one episode, when Rivalz accidentally sends a champagne bottle cork right into her face, she notices it even before he does and deflects it with her hand. Suzaku Kururugi has been shown to be able to dodge bullets from machine guns.

Pre-immortality C.C. had a Geass which acted as a love-magnet, which was nice until she couldn't turn it off and people got increasingly obsessed with pleasing her. This made it impossible to tell where people's true feelings ended and the Geass-generated love-brainwashing began, causing C.C. to become jaded and cynical about love.

Does This Remind You of Anything?
 Code Geass / int_14ed6ab7
comment
Does This Remind You of Anything?: Poles living in the north Germanised sections of Poland during World War II will find the "Honorary Britannian" system familiar to the "Germanisation list" that many signed. Lelouch calling out Charles on his refusal to end the global violence is reminiscent of how people still believe Emperor Hirohito could have averted Japan's involvement in World War II. Ohgi is a member of a race considered inferior by a conquering empire who lives in a ghetto. He has dark, curly hair and is a member of a resistant movement who used to be a teacher before the war. He wears a yellow Star of David over his jacket. note It may actually be a Kagome crest, which is found in many of the oldest Shinto shrines in Japan but is completely identical to the Star of David so giving him one for that reason was almost certainly deliberate.

 Code Geass / int_154aa477
comment
Big, Screwed-Up Family: Look no further than the Britannian Royalty. In Lelouch's generation, all of his siblings have been involved in some kind of complicit plot (including sweet Nunnally), which is largely due to the influence of Emperor Charles, who is at best a manipulative and neglectful parent. However, the dysfunction goes even farther, with family members participating in the "Emblem of Blood" by backstabbing and assassinating each other to sit on the Britannian throne. When the scheming resulted in one noblewoman's grisly death, her twin sons, then Prince Charles and Prince V.V., swore to create a "world without lies" so this wouldn't happen again.

Tempting Fate: "Don't worry Nina, there are a lot of Britannians at the convention center. It's not dangerous like the ghetto." Happened twice in episode 10. First, a couple of JLF soldiers are musing that no one would invade their territory then Zero walks in and geasses them both. The second time was when Cornelia and Darlton were both thinking that the rebellion in Area 11 will finally end when they defeat the JLF. It then cuts to the Black Knights preparing for battle.

The series is even taking place in an alternate history; if you look up the information about the timeline of Code Geass, you'll see that it takes place in what would be the 1960s by real-world reckoning. That's right, they got flip-phones about half a century earlier than we did.

Say My Name: The whole show lives off this trope, but the most iconic ones are of Lelouch and Suzaku screaming each others name at each other through the series. The most perfect example of this trope is the very ending of the first season, where it ends on a Cliffhanger between the two holding a gun at each other, and screaming the others name before it cuts to the credits.

Artistic License – Geology: When the F.L.E.I.J.A. bomb is deployed, leaving at least a 1300 meter-deep crater, the now exposed terrain is completely uniform. No geological layers at all. Though considering the forces involved, it can be imagined that an uniform crust would have melted on the sides of the crater, consisting of all the matter vaporized in the explosion.

 Code Geass / int_1c445e86
comment
Poor Communication Kills: Season 1 might have ended a bit more positively if Lelouch hadn't been so flippant to Suzaku about Euphemia's death, something Lelouch actually extremely torn up about, upon Suzaku discovering that Lelouch was Zero, the one responsible for her death. Averted in season 2 where even when Lelouch claims to have deliberately killed her to Suzaku, he doesn't believe it. But then played straight again when a recording of Lelouch saying that is edited and played to the Black Knights, making them think he really DID intend for that massacre to happen, causing them to betray him.

Power at a Price
 Code Geass / int_1ebbdddb
comment
Power at a Price: The whole series can be interpreted as a moral about the terrible ramifications of one man being given power above others. Almost invariably, Geass users end up having lost more than they have gained with their ability. It's also Lelouch's quest to make something of his Geass despite the awful cost. He's partly successful, although even that is open to interpretation.

comment
Compromising Call: Episode 1 has Lelouch trying to sneak his way out of a massacre where his long-lost best friend was just shot for refusing orders to kill him for knowing too much. Unfortunately for him, Shirley, who is at school, calls his cell phone in hopes of reaching him, alerting the soldiers to his location, resulting in him almost getting executed.

Faceless Goons: Honorary Britannian soldiers fill this role. After becoming Emperor, most of Lelouch's soldiers wear smooth masks that completely obscure their faces, and the series rather pointedly has them don those masks after Lelouch Geasses them.

Crapsack World
 Code Geass / int_21d70919
comment
Crapsack World: The Britannian Emperor invades nations because of his "survival of the fittest" philosophy even if he doesn't believe in it. If he wins, you and others like you, will be relegated to ghettos where you will live in poverty. The ghetto is subject to army raids. If you want a better life, swallow your pride and head to the government building where you can sign a document that says you are now an honorary Britannian. You are now eligible for employment (the really demeaning ones). Life in the settlement is marked by racism. Britannians can beat you up in the street and no one, not even police, will help you. Being a Britannian in Area 11 is especially dangerous because of clashes between the army and the Black Knights. The Chinese Federation is no improvement. The only bastion of freedom and democracy in the world is the European Union, and they're losing their war to Britannia; not to mention are revealed in Akito The Exiled to be rather like real-world America is, corrupted by capitalism and still having a lot of racism and a widening gap between the wealthy and the poor. It's also suggested that Australia is a completely neutral territory (think Switzerland during the Second World War, but it doesn't play a role in the story, so its internal status is unknown.

For Science!: Lloyd Asplund lives by this trope, and doesn't care for much anything else. He even tells Nina in R2 that if she wants to perform science experiments, she must destroy her heart, or it'll just get in her way (which it does when the FLEIJA goes off). Rakshata largely lives by this trope, but usually to build stuff to counter what Lloyd's created. Both of them are often shocked by a new item created by the other.

Ironic Echo
 Code Geass / int_237404cc
comment
Ironic Echo: Not an exact echo of a quote, but it was certainly ironic that the long-blind but now sighted Nunnally should end up begging Lelouch to open his eyes. That whole scene where Nunnally is screaming in despair for the dead Lelouch while the world chants "all hail Zero" is incredibly poetic in its irony. "We're friends, aren't we?". First said by Lelouch to Suzaku during the start of the Black Rebellion then said by Suzaku when he took Lelouch to the Emperor to be mind scrubbed. Lelouch and Suzaku's shared monologue in episode 5 about why they want to solve the world's problems (war, terrorism, discrimination). Schneizel says something similar when he revealed he will use Damocles to subjugate the world.

Slave Mooks
 Code Geass / int_25a31943
comment
Slave Mooks: Mostly subverted, and only occasionally played straight, as Lelouch's Geass grants him the power to conceivably do this to anyone, but he actually rarely uses it like that, normally using his Geass as a piece of his broader strategy. Unfortunately, upon learning of this, the fear that he may do this, or has already done it to them causes the Black Knights to turn on him. After becoming Emperor, Lelouch then uses his Geass to enthrall entire battalions of soldiers to serve as his obedient soldiers, with the dub even using the exact words "be my slaves".

Practically Different Generations
 Code Geass / int_25c7875f
comment
Practically Different Generations: With an official 108 consorts for Charles zi Britannia, there are plenty of half-siblings and even full-blooded siblings with years if not decades sized age gaps. For example, Second Princess Cornelia is 27, while her younger sister Third Princess Euphemia is 16. Schneizel, the Second Prince of Britannia, is almost in his thirties, while his half-brother Lelouch is 17. Extra materials reveal that Clovis (24) has a younger full-blooded sister who is fourteen years old. The only ones with a reasonable age gap are Lelouch and Nunnally, born three years apart, something that is likely because their mother Marianne was the favored consort to Charles.

Dispel Magic: In the second season, Jeremiah Gottwald (a.k.a. Orange-kun) gets the Geass Canceller, the power to completely negate Geass. Not only is he immune from such effects, but he can create spheres with huge radii that strip anyone caught in the bubble of any Geass effects they're currently affected by. For Lelouch's Geass, it even resets the "once per person" counter, allowing the victim to be Geassed again.

Kick the Dog
 Code Geass / int_34dcfc96
comment
The police are an interesting case. While never shown to explicitly kick any dogs, they are generally included in Lelouch's "all Britannian authorities are corrupt and must be obliterated" mindset. This is implied in Lelouch and Suzaku's debate in an early episode about whether the Black Knights are heroes for Justice, or whether they are vigilantes who should just join the police force and work from within the system if they want to enact change (Lelouch comments that they'd simply be absorbed and corrupted by the system). They're not shown to protect or serve the Numbers in the Ghettos, and it's implied that they may have been involved in the smuggling of Refrain. The episode in which they gain the most (and any positive) coverage is when Lelouch geasses them into shooting Mao after Lelouch beats him using that tape trick.

Please Don't Leave Me: Lelouch has a moment of this in the second season. When Shirley's been shot through the stomach, she gives him a dying speech about how she'll always fall in love with him, even in the next life. Lelouch doesn't want her to go, so he tries using his Geass to keep her alive, at one point screaming "Don't die! You can't die! I order you not to die!" It doesn't work; Shirley knows she's done for, and his mind control effect does absolutely nothing.

Rule of Sexy: For example, the position the Guren forces its pilot to assume would be absolutely terrible for the lumbar. The result: this◊. Kallen pilots it at the beginning of R2 in her bunny girl outfit. Early in R2, Milly has a welcome party for Suzaku. The swim club opened the "Swim Club Cafe" and has Villetta dress in a skimpy bikini and the female students in swimsuits. The Love Attack! episode gives us the "Fantasy Seduction Club". Somehow, the principle of the Academy allowed the club to exist and the members were permitted to show off in public in their sexy outfits during the School Festival. One girl has a Barely-There Swimwear, another is in lingerie and BDSM attire and one has a French Maid Outfit.

Lelouch has the power to issue absolute orders, but it only works once and those orders can't be taken back. Once his Geass becomes permanently active near the end of the first season, he accidentally triggers a genocide. How... unfortunate. For the most part, though, his power is portrayed as positive, since he gets a contact to deal with the Power Incontinence in the following season.

Hypnotize the Princess
 Code Geass / int_39f93a5f
comment
Hypnotize the Princess: Done literally, but not to its traditional end; Lelouch Geasses Clovis to get info on his mother's murder, only to find he doesn't know anything (then he kills him), then Euphemia on accodent leading to the oft-mentioned genocide (leading him to have to fatally shoot her to fix the situation), then Cornelia at the end of R1 (Clovis suggested she might know, but she doesn't know anything either), in R2 geassing most of his siblings to serve him when he ascends to the throne, and finally geassing Schneizel and Nunally aboard the Damocles. Hell, he even does it to HIMSELF in an attempt to throw Mao's mind games. From the Black Knight's perspectives, played slightly more traditionally (but not as literally) when Charles zi Britannia brainwashes Lelouch.

Noodle Incident: Some of these (including that baby bird) are covered in the supplementary audio- and picture-dramas. Whatever happened at Aomori with Kallen and C.C. Slightly un-noodled by a postcard in the Zero Requiem DVD. Toudou's "Miracle at Utsushima". "That one time that chick ran away..." "Don't bring up old stories now!" while chasing a cat in episode 6. We never get to learn why exactly Rakshata has such a grudge against Lloyd, nor why she insists on referring to him as "the earl of Pudding".

Blessed with Suck
 Code Geass / int_3c3f28a5
comment
Blessed with Suck: Practically every Geass power granted starts off sounding pretty cool... until it becomes uncontrollable and makes its user's life hell (unless it already had a terrible drawback to begin with). Examples: Lelouch has the power to issue absolute orders, but it only works once and those orders can't be taken back. Once his Geass becomes permanently active near the end of the first season, he accidentally triggers a genocide. How... unfortunate. For the most part, though, his power is portrayed as positive, since he gets a contact to deal with the Power Incontinence in the following season. Mao can read the thoughts of anyone within 500 meters. To be more precise, Mao reads the thoughts of everyone in 500 meters. This was bad enough when he could turn it on and off. Once it becomes permanently active, he has to read the thoughts of everyone within 500 meters. Unlike Lelouch, there's no easy way to fix the problem, isolating him and eventually driving him insane from being bombarded by random thoughts. He's obviously in so much pain, in fact, that it's hard to see how his power was ever a blessing in the first place! Rolo has the power to stop perception of time. However, his heart stops along with everything else, putting the time limit at a few seconds and making it risky to use in quick succession. This is what eventually kills him, when he consciously overuses his Geass to save Lelouch. Pre-immortality C.C. had a Geass which acted as a love-magnet, which was nice until she couldn't turn it off and people got increasingly obsessed with pleasing her. This made it impossible to tell where people's true feelings ended and the Geass-generated love-brainwashing began, causing C.C. to become jaded and cynical about love. Suzaku may not have a Geass, but he does get a command from Lelouch to "live", forcing Suzaku to survive by whatever means necessary. For a Death Seeker like Suzaku, this is bad enough as it is. But it goes From Bad to Worse. Thanks to the "Live" Geass, he ends up nuking Tokyo and causing thirty-five million deaths when using the nuke was the only thing left to keep Kallen from killing him. Then it becomes Cursed With Awesome as he turns the command into a quasi-SEED mode. In the Grand Finale... well, let's say that he was given a Fate Worse than Death. Lelouch's mother, Marianne, is also a case. Her Geass apparently never activates... until she's shot to death, locking her in the body of a young girl she was training... and on timeshare to boot. However, she mentions that she could have gone back at some point if she had wanted. Elite Mook and Knight Of One, Bismarck Waldstien, has the power to see the future. It's permanently active, so that eye, while still usable, sees the future constantly. He has it clamped shut with some easy to remove clips. In a subversion, practically the only person in the series who never seems to have a problem with his Geass is Emperor Charles, who has the ability to erase and re-write memories.

Absurdly Powerful Student Council: Milly twice mobilizes the entire student body to a specific task with nothing but a PA announcement. Milly being part of the (former) noble family Ashford (as in Ashford Academy) does give at least some reasoning behind it. And the fact that she promised a kiss from a student council member, and all the student council members are Bishōnen and bishoujo. Then again, her last act as student council president was to organize an event where a person snatching another's hat would designate those two as an official couple ... and not, apparently, just for the duration of the game.

 Code Geass / int_3f45f1e6

Adaptational Heroism: The movie series retelling the story paints the Black Knights, particularly Ohgi, in a more favorable light when it comes to them turning against Lelouch. In the original series, after hearing an edited version of Lelouch's confession to Euphemia's death and the massacre around her death, all of the Black Knights (aside from Kallen), led by Ohgi, instantly turn on Lelouch and stand back to watch him get gunned down by Schneizel's soldiers without letting him explain himself. In the movies, they at least ask him to tell his side of the story, but Schneizel's men step in to kill him, and Lelouch is forced to run, leaving the Black Knights to work with Schneizel, and after it is all said and done, Ohgi feels really guilty for what happened.

All There in the Stinger
 Code Geass / int_3f897dea
comment
All There in the Stinger: One of the most debated (and most affected by a wide spread of disinformation) examples in anime, in which the final episode has, according to contested fan theories, a Stinger which suggests that perhaps Lelouch may be Not Quite Dead. There are a huge amount of Word of God statements which all repeat that he was killed, but some fans prefer to cling to their own headcanon and reject the anime's official canon. Word of God has stated in interviews (e.g. Animage 10 and 11, Continue Vol.42◊, etc), tweets by the director (translation), the official guide book◊, ..., that Lelouch is dead and he is listed among the dead in the Death List for R2. C.C. even explicitly says Lelouch is dead in the new epilogue (from 2009). Then it was announced that he was confirmed to be the main character in the sequel which is officially named "Lelouch of the Re;surrection", which aligns with the mountain of official statements (database with official statements) about his death.

A more tragic one is when Lelouch finds out his Geass stays on permanently, right as he joked to Euphemia about ordering her to kill all the Japanese people, which she proceeds to do right away, ordering her troops to do the same. Being the Manipulative Bastard that he is, he utilizes the ensuing chaos to further his own agenda, albeit regretting it tremendously.

There are loads of fan speculation about his possible survival, but Word of God has repeatedl confirmed that Lelouch is truly dead. They said this in interviews (e.g. Animage 10 and 11, Continue Vol.42◊, etc), tweets by the director (translation), the official guide book◊, ..., and Lelouch is listed among the dead in the Death List for R2.

Also, flags in the wind and trains. Nunnally's garden during Operation Pacific Ambush. During the big showdown with Emperor Wakamoto there is a massive tower of shimmering CGI.

After manipulating Rolo into siding with him wholeheartedly, Lelouch acts very kind and gentle to him to make the boy trust him more and therefore easier to use. Rolo ends up believing all of that. He really thinks of himself as Lelouch's brother and even gets jealous of Nunnally for being his real sibling. Even after Lelouch flat out tells Rolo that he has been using him all along, he denies that by thinking that it's all just a lie, and ends up pulling a Heroic Sacrifice for Lelouch. However, as Lelouch - fakely or not - admits to have been lying and listing him in the list of the people he cares about, it may not be so ironic after all.

Suzaku killed his father, the Prime Minister of Japan, Genbu Kururugi, during Japan's war against Britannia. He did this in order to force Japan to surrender, thus ending the bloodshed of the war and preventing Japan's total destruction, since Genbu actually preferred to have Japan destroyed rather than under Britannian rule. It worked, but the character is so horribly torn by guilt that the incident gives him Trauma-Induced Amnesia for years.

Straw Fan: Diethard fits this to a T. He joins The Black Knights only because he was pretty much Zero's #1 fan and like Kallen, he's fiercely loyal to Zero viewing him as a source of inspiration and admiration. From then on however, he's portrayed as the resident Token Evil Teammate with others distrusting him. Near the end he is killed by Lelouch/Zero himself after defecting to Schneizel when The Black Knights crumble, dying in shame.

Characterization Marches On
 Code Geass / int_479f9ad0
comment
Characterization Marches On: Nearly all of the Britannian Empire were purely evil, racist, and ruthless in the first season, but the second season gave it more shades of gray, with the main ones in charge (Emperor Charles, V.V, etc.) being the only truly evil ones, and they have understandable motivations. In the end, Luciano Bradley is the only Britannian left with absolutely no redeeming qualities. It's still a very dark shade of grey though since millions are dying in Britannia's conquests with no Britannian actually caring about how War Is Hell for the loser. They're mostly Punch Clock Villains but a world-conquering and enslaving one. But an example less related to morality would be how early on Cornelia remarks on Guilford having a number of mistresses but for most of the series he acts like he has a Bodyguard Crush on Cornelia.

Dueling Messiahs
 Code Geass / int_49e50ba0
comment
Dueling Messiahs: Childhood best friends Lelouch Lamperouge and Suzaku Kururugi, both of whom agree on one thing - that the current regime, the Britannian empire, is horrible. However, their methods of changing it differ drastically - Lelouch has enough of a Dark and Troubled Past to want to overthrow his father the Emperor, and will settle for nothing less than the complete destruction of the monarchy (of which he is a part of - except, of course, for his beloved little sister and long-lost younger half-sister he still cares for). Suzaku, on the other hand, rejects an offer to join Lelouch more than once and enlists in the Britannian military (despite being Japanese) because he believes the Britannian empire can be changed from the inside. There is, of course, more than meets the eye.

Leaning on the Fourth Wall: Zero's early Paranoia Gambit involves threatening to reveal the existence of "Orange" to the public. Lelouch admits later that he chose the word completely at random, but for the audience, it's a nice nod to the visual indicator of someone under a Geass influence, the orange-rimmed eyes.

Pretty Little Headshots
 Code Geass / int_4ab9c868
comment
Pretty Little Headshots: When one character is shot in the head at point blank range, all you see is him falling to the ground, and it's clear that there's no exit wound. Might be explained by the fact that all or most of Code Geass's firearms (throughout its entire parallel history, no less) are actually some form of coilgun◊, which means that bullets are of a smaller caliber and that they travel slower than in real-life. It might make sense, since we see people getting shot multiple times with them and still getting up/recovering. This would also explain the odd, tinny pop the guns make when fired or when the bullets strike something metallic. Though there are several other times when characters are shot in their heads and blood is shown to spurt opposite the entry point. However, despite gratuitous amounts of blood, exit wounds are never really shown.

Mukokuseki: There is basically zero differentiation between the facial structures of Asians and Caucasians, although Asians tend to have natural hair colors and Caucasians are more likely to have more colorful hair. With racism as one of the main themes, some have argued that the close resemblance may be part of the point. Lelouch and Suzaku in particular are, to the viewer anyway, able to easily pass off as the other's race. Taken to its extreme in Kallen, who is half-Britannian, half-Japanese, yet she can pass both as a full Britannian and full Japanese.

A Child Shall Lead Them
 Code Geass / int_4e6e9b64
comment
A Child Shall Lead Them: Jiang Luhua, the Tianzi, is only thirteen years old. Kaguya Sumeragi — head of the influential Sumeragi House; High Chairman of the UFN; Japan's representative on said council — is only about fourteen by the events of R2. Nunnally begins her rule of Britannia, the world's last remaining superpower, when she has just turned fifteen. Lelouch himself is only seventeen (presumably he turned eighteen during the time skip). While not exactly a 'child' per se, he is very young to be leading a full-scale rebellion. And later ruling most of the world. Subverted with V.V. Physically, he's a child, but after gaining immortality through a Geass contract, his growth was forever stunted, so chronologically, he's the same age as his brother, Emperor Charles. His possession of a Code meant that his existence had to be kept secret from the rest of the world, also meaning that Charles is effectively ruling in his place as Emperor-Regent. On the other hand, he's the leader of the Geass Directorate as well as the Order of Pluton.

Wham Line: Mao's yells at Suzaku, "Get your hands off of me, father-killer!" Although Euphy meant well by this, she delivers a speech version at the end of episode 21 when she proclaims to create a zone where 11's can go back to being Japanese and there's no distinction between them or Britannians. Lelouch does not take it well, as Euphy essentially neutered his operations as Zero and the Black Knights with that proclamation. Shirley and Lelouch's exchange at the end of episode 12 leads to this.

Disproportionate Retribution: Lelouch plots revenge against most of his family members for the Britannian invasion of Japan. It doesn't stop there. His response to Rolo murdering Shirley is to wipe out the entire Geass Order. While there were undoubtedly some monsters in that number, he still has his minions slaughter kids. Tykebombs, yes, but kids. Rolo had killed an SIA man for touching the locket Lelouch gave him.

Cast From Hit Points: Most Geass users have some kind of drawback, such as Lelouch's where he can only use his Geass on a person once. In Rolo's case, stopping time causes a lot of physical stress to his body, so he can usually only use it for a short amount of time. He then does a Heroic Sacrifice in order to save Lelouch from getting killed after the Black Knights find out what he did using his Geass ability, and how he apparently played them all for fools.

Not What It Looks Like
 Code Geass / int_52d1f46e
comment
Not What It Looks Like: Shirley keeps catching Lelouch in what look like romantic encounters with Kallen. Kallen keeps finding Zero (who is also Lelouch) with C.C. Pretty much all the Black Knights assume C.C. is Zero's mistress. A more convoluted example: In an incident not long after Suzaku starts school at Ashford, he's attacked by Arthur the cat and falls on top of Shirley. In closeup, it looks like a highly suggestive embrace. For a second or two, they look as if they're about to kiss, whether deliberately or not. But as soon as the camera pulls back to a medium shot, the situation looks more innocent: Suzaku's hands are not on Shirley's chest; one is on her arm and the other is in Arthur's mouth — Arthur is biting him. And on second viewing it's clear the whole scene is a Red Herring: Shirley's eyes are shiny and romantic not because she's being embraced by Suzaku but rather because they've been talking about Lelouch, with whom she's in love.

Emperor Charles, Large and in Charge Lady Marianne, nicknamed 'The Flash' The Chess Master Lelouch and Schneizel Lady of War Cornelia Rebellious Princess Euphemia Despite being blind and paralyzed even Nunally manages to ring up a decent kill count by the time the series is finished.

Police Are Useless
 Code Geass / int_59907e4f
comment
Police Are Useless: The police are an interesting case. While never shown to explicitly kick any dogs, they are generally included in Lelouch's "all Britannian authorities are corrupt and must be obliterated" mindset. This is implied in Lelouch and Suzaku's debate in an early episode about whether the Black Knights are heroes for Justice, or whether they are vigilantes who should just join the police force and work from within the system if they want to enact change (Lelouch comments that they'd simply be absorbed and corrupted by the system). They're not shown to protect or serve the Numbers in the Ghettos, and it's implied that they may have been involved in the smuggling of Refrain. The episode in which they gain the most (and any positive) coverage is when Lelouch geasses them into shooting Mao after Lelouch beats him using that tape trick. Played straight when Suzaku orders the police to protect Shirley during a terrorist attack (Jeremiah going after Lelouch). Shirley ignores the police's safety to go after Lelouch. None of them were able catch-up with her and none of them were around when she's ended-up killed by Rolo.

Million-to-One Chance: In R2 episode 24, Nina creates an anti-FLEIJA device that has an extremely slim margin of success, requiring key data to be input 19 seconds before detonation and only having a 0.04-second window of opportunity even if everything goes right. Lelouch and Suzaku manage to pull it off - mostly through strategy. Lelouch is a genius and so can input within 19 seconds, and Suzaku uses his "live" Geass, which forces him to fire the FLEIJA Eliminator with perfect timing.

You Cannot Kill An Idea: Zero's stance for fighting against injustice and tyranny, largely caused by the Britannian Empire, but also anyone who would manipulate people for their own gain, such as the eunuchs in the Chinese Federation. So when Lelouch finally takes over the world at the end, Zero once again shows up to fight against him, which is quite a shock to the Black Knights, as they discovered Lelouch was Zero, so wondered who this new Zero was.

You Kill It, You Bought It
 Code Geass / int_5e2f5ad2
comment
You Kill It, You Bought It: After Lelouch kills Emperor Charles, he claims that that makes him the new emperor. Of course, nobody goes along with that until he uses his Geass to change their minds for them. Often applied to how the various immortals are created by people who believe that the way the code is transferred is by the death of the current holder. However, this is actually a misunderstanding because this isn't how immortals are created because the code is NOT transferred by the death of the former code bearer. Transferring the code doesn't directly kill the former code bearer, it merely renders him mortal again, and killing the former code bearer isn't a requisite for the transfer to happen. In the anime, the nun whose code C.C. has doesn't automatically drop dead because of the transfer, nor is C.C. at that point able to kill the nun (as she's severely injured by the nun), the nun commits suicide after regaining her mortality (hence the blood). The case of Charles and V.V. is even clearer. V.V. is still alive for quite a long while after Charles receives his code, showing that the transfer itself doesn't kill the previous bearer. Nor does Charles kill V.V., he simply succumbed to his injuries from his fight with Lelouch and Cornelia, showing that killing the former bearer isn't a requisite for the transfer. Lelouch does this with Suzaku at the end, "cursing" him to live a life where he fights against injustice and tyranny as Zero. Suzaku gladly accepts the terms.

Belly Dancer: One of the many Picture Dramas, set during the China Arc of the second season, shows Lelouch, C.C., and Kallen sneaking into the Chinese Federation to scout around under the guise of three Belly Dancer sisters. The Fanservice of C.C. and Kallen in skimpy outfits and interesting poses manages to work with the humour of Lelouch also wearing a similar outfit (and looking good enough that at least one of the men there still think he's hot after finding out he's a man).

Freeze-Frame Bonus: A sharp-eyed viewer might notice that, in the train cars in Episode 4, all of the passengers have the red eyes associated with being under the control of Geass...which is how 'Zero' has the group left alone, in addition to the forward train car to himself. In the beginning of R2, Lelouch is reading a book and has it open for less than a second before slamming it shut. Pausing reveals that he is reading from The Divine Comedy, Purgatorio 22, specifically. The above is a call back to Lelouch reading at the start of season 1 in the motorcycle sidecar; a keen eye will note that he's reading Hamlet...

Three-quarters through season 1 of Code Geass when Suzaku is going to sacrifice himself to hold Lelouch/Zero in place for a massive missile strike, Lelouch whips out his Geass and commands Suzaku to 'live' thereby making a Heroic Sacrifice impossible.

Defeat by Modesty: Lelouch secures his freedom when Kallen grabs him the first time by telling her that he can see her.

Averted later on when Suzaku accidentally catches Kallen taking a Waterfall Shower when they found themselves on a deserted island. She doesn't hesitate in picking upon her knife and going for the kill even though she is completely naked. And Suzaku takes her down without any qualms about it either.

The Power of Love: Episode 11 of R2. Lelouch, after consulting Shirley, delivers an epic, over the top declaration that the power of people's love will change the world. The English title is even called "Power of Passion".

Sliding Scale of Gender Inequality
 Code Geass / int_6ad1eeb8
comment
Sliding Scale of Gender Inequality: Although the two most important characters in the show are male, there are female heroes that manage to be just as cool and competent as them, or even moreso. There are also females in every major group and organization in the story (Ashford Academy; the Britannian royal family, the Britannian army, the Black Knights, three of the story's four engineers, etc.) whom everyone accepts and who seem to be equal to their male counterparts in plot importance and what they do, or sometimes even better.

Serious Business: There are luxurious underground gambling clubs for chess, frequented by millionaires, Mafia bosses and the like. Bring your own extremely expensive chessboard and bet a fortune. Catching the cat who stole Zero's helmet is serious enough that the Student Council President mobilizes the school and offers a kiss from any Student Council member to whoever catches it. It Makes Sense in Context.

Big Sleep: In the Grand Finale Lelouch dies like this. While he's uttering his last words to Nunnally, a backwards Really Dead Montage plays in the background until it reaches their childhood at which point he finally expires with a slump. Cue Nunnally breaking down in tears as she just realized moments before that Lelouch was running a Thanatos Gambit for world peace, hence why everyone else is cheering at his killer.

Chess Motifs: Start with Zero's uniform — which could almost be a human-sized classic Staunton chess set king◊ stuffed into a superhero cape. This was done intentionally - designer Kenji Teraoka revealed in an interview that the King and Queen from the show's eponymous chess set are modeled on Zero and C.C.. And the list goes on and on and on.

Decoy Getaway: C.C. sometimes dresses as Zero to aid Lelouch in his plans and/or to lend him plausible deniability. In the second season, Sayoko does the opposite (of sorts) by disguising herself as Lelouch (the Rich Idiot With No Day Job version).. As if to top them both, at the end of R2, Suzaku kills Lelouch at Lelouch's own request and takes up the Zero identity.

Casting Gag: A Karen Strassman character (Kallen) playing the Dirty Harriet card at the beginning of R2. Where have we seen this before? Kallen's German voice actress, Julia Ziffer, is well known for playing Asuka in the Neon Genesis Evangelion franchise. A Johnny Yong Bosch character (Lelouch) pilots a Humongous Mecha? Where in the world have we seen this before? Takahiro Sakurai is no strange to Humongous Mecha neither. Just ask Gou Ichimonji, Bit Cloud and Ray Lundgren. And McGillis Fareed, especially since both happen to pilot mechas that operate and even look the same.

Arc Words: "The only ones who should kill are those prepared to be killed." Lelouch holds true to this statement: after all the lives he took in his quest to give Nunnally a gentler world, he allows himself to die as part of the Zero Requiem. Subverted; Zero says something about "orange" during the Suzaku rescue, the implication being that it's the code name for a collaboration between himself and Jeremiah. When C.C. asks Lelouch what "orange" means later, he admits there IS no deeper meaning; he simply chose an arbitrary word and allowed everyone's innate imagination to assign meaning to it.

Morality Kitchen Sink: There are no genuinely, unquestionably good people, as even Euphemia decides what is best for her loved ones without consulting them and drags everyone along with her reckless actions without ever considering the consequences and repercussions. While Shirley is kind-hearted and sweet, she is only concerned about her own feelings and school life while all hell is breaking loose outside, she can come across as somewhat self-centered. At the same time, there is one genuinely, unquestionably evil person, Luciano Bradley. Every other character falls somewhere in between, with most of the "good guys" being flawed and somewhat hypocritical, and most of the "bad guys" being either fiercely nationalistic or a Well-Intentioned Extremist.

She Is Not My Girlfriend: Lelouch, regarding C.C. In Season One, episode five, when C.C. pops up unexpectedly at Lelouch's place, chatting away with Nunnally, she makes some cryptic remarks about a bond between her and Lelouch and a promise he made about their future together. Nunnally, not having any way of knowing about the Geass, makes the not altogether unreasonable assumption that C.C. is referring to secret wedding plans. When Lelouch tells Nunnally that C.C. is just joking, C.C. claims she never jokes. Happens again in the Picture Drama Stage 9.75. Nunally inquires once more about C.C. being Lelouch's girlfriend. Lelouch nervously denies it and tries to come up with many ridiculous excuses until Sayako comes in.

This, however, is nothing compared to what both Charles and Schneizel do to Lelouch.

Failure Gambit: The ending of the series is an example of this, as well as Thanatos Gambit and Zero-Approval Gambit, as Lelouch, now emperor of Britannia, intentionally makes himself the enemy of the world and then dies a martyr's death at the hands of Suzaku, who is disguised as Zero, the hero of the people. This plan—the "Zero Requiem"—results in most of the world's strife being blamed on the tyrannical Lelouch, and ultimately unites humanity, just as Lelouch had hoped to do.

Handshake Refusal: Subverted upon her introduction, Rakshata Chawla radiates a rather arrogant Insufferable Genius aura and, when Zero offers her a handshake, it looks like she will refuse it for a moment. She decides to accept, however, in a symbolic move of acknowledging a fellow genius in the rebel leader. It is later shown that Rakshata is not actually that arrogant or smug, but she certainly acted the part when joining the rebellion.

Shower Scene: Kallen gets one in episode 3, turning into a Shower of Awkward when Lelouch interrupts it to brings her a change of clothes and during the ensuing conversation, she accidentally causes the shower curtain to open and exposes herself to him. She is either seen as a Sexy Silhouette behind a yellow shower curtain or with convenient Scenery Censor or Shoulders-Up Nudity to avoid showing anything. Lelouch has a Shower of Angst in episode 13 after Shirley's father's death really made him confront the consequences of his actions. Milly also has a Shower of Angst in R2 episode 12, when she was in a depressed state for a while after Nina told her off.

Breather Episode
 Code Geass / int_80a247a9
comment
Breather Episode: Episodes 5 and 12 of R2 are filled with Fanservice and contain almost no main plot advancement whatsoever, except for the mandatory cliffhangers at the end. Episode 21 of the first season is full of light-hearted fluff, and is sandwiched between the high-powered action sequences of episode 20 and episode 22. Episode 6 of the first season, where a cat accidentally steals Lelouch's Zero helmet, and due to some misinterpretations by Nunnally, causes the entire school to go looking for it. It's really lighthearted compared to the next episode, in which Lelouch suffers his first major defeat and is nearly captured/killed in the process.

comment
Large Ham: Lelouch, Charles, and Jeremiah (especially after being possibly brain damaged and cyborg'd, at which point he runs with it and never stops). It's even Lampshaded in the anime. One of the soon to be Black Knights says about Zero, "I didn't know the genius strategist was such a ham." Sayoko is this through her actions in R2, especially on Cupid Day. Lelouch points it out, even saying that trying to convince her not to overdo everything is more trouble than it's worth.

Wishing for More Wishes: Lelouch can only use his Geass (which allows him to force someone to obey one order from him) once on a given person... but late in the second season, after declaring himself Emperor of Britannia, he gets around it by Geassing the assembled Britannian nobility to "always obey me!". It's implied that he hadn't done this before due to moral scruples which he is now abandoning.

"Imprisoned In Campus" has a towel-clad Kallen storming in on C.C. to complain about how their plan at the beginning of season 2 had her in a Playboy Bunny. Turned into a funny moment when she realizes C.C. is in the middle of a meeting with a few gentlemen from the Chinese Federation. In an oddly-effeminate (if understandable) moment she screams and runs behind a screen. Angrier than ever, she continues to complain to C.C. and almost has the towel fall off in the process.

Mind Rape: Mao's treatment of Shirley and C.C.'s distraction of Suzaku. The first was unforgivable, the second accidental: C.C. didn't control what he saw. Then there's the Emperor implanting Lelouch's fake memories, which bears a very uncomfortable resemblance to an actual rape scene, since Lelouch is being held to the floor by Suzaku while he screams, thrashes, and begs his father to stop. By episode 21 of R2, it is revealed that Charles had also done the same by using his Geass on Nunnally to cover-up Marianne's murder.

Lelouch tests his Geass by telling a girl to once a day make a new mark on an unmarked brick of the building. Several times in the series, you see her walking to and marking the building, and during episode 5 of R2, you see the marks on the wall with the last mark being only half done. This is actually becomes a little less humorous when some minor lines in the supplementary material or within the show bring up that this girl is now living in Britannia and keeps getting up int the middle of the night and trying to walk out of her house. The Geass never wore off.

Wham Episode: Episode 22 takes the Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! trope and elevates it to a whole new level when Lelouch accidentally Geasses his sister into killing all the Japanese. Starting with episode 13, R2 whams every episode. Episode 7 of the first season is perhaps the first instance of this trope, where Lelouch suffers his first major defeat due to fighting against an opponent who essentially uses his tactics against him.

At least, he doesn't seem to be an Asshole Victim.

Clovis' science team was packed up and sent to Narita to avoid Cornelia discovering Geass... only to be crushed when the mountain was dropped.

Rule of Symbolism: Plenty of it. For example, the yellow cloth star that resistence fighter Kaname Ohgi wears on his chest bears a striking resemblance to the Star of David "yellow badges" that Jews were forced to wear under Nazi law. Quite appropriate for someone who believes he's fighting A Nazi by Any Other Name. Masks, everywhere. What is the mask, and what is the truth? When is it okay to lie, and when is it not? Even though Lelouch is the obvious example, notice how many times Suzaku is "unmasked" (Stage 1, Stage 11, Stage 16, Stage 17...).

The Tape Knew You Would Say That‎: Lelouch's penchant for prerecorded conversations, which is taken to its logical conclusion with his "dialogue" with Schneizel, which nigh anticipated what he would actually say. Subverted however in that said messages are designed to be as general and filled with deliberate pauses as possible, giving the illusion of a conversation. Neither are they intended to hold up for too long, serving more like distractions and feints as they're far from perfect.

Multilayer Façade: Lelouch has three or four identities: Lelouch Vi Britannia, Lelouch Lamperouge, Zero, and the king of geass. The second series adds another identity, since there are two different Lelouch Lamperouge identities depending on who he says his real sibling is. People who are close to him, like Nunnally, Suzaku, and Milly might know two of the identities, but C.C. is the only other person who knows all of them. In the last five episodes, he complicates it further by pretending that Lelouch Vi Britannia is a monster. Complicated further: Yes, Julius Kingsley is Lelouch under the Emperor's geass.

They Died Because of You
 Code Geass / int_9aef0e13
comment
They Died Because of You: In episode 16, Mao calls out Suzaku for the death of his own father, Genbu Kururugi. Lelouch gets blamed for this by Shirley when her father is killed during one of Zero's missions. To make matters even worse for him, her father was a relatively upstanding person who wasn't an Asshole Victim, which shocks him even more when he learns about it. At least, he doesn't seem to be an Asshole Victim. It's implied that he was one of the scientists performing human experimentation on Unwitting Test Subject C.C., as he was a scientist for Britannia who was in Narita 'on business' when the mountain was dropped. Clovis' science team was packed up and sent to Narita to avoid Cornelia discovering Geass... only to be crushed when the mountain was dropped.

Let Them Die Happy
 Code Geass / int_9c73b5b2
comment
Let Them Die Happy: Before she died, Euphemia asked Suzaku if the people were happy with her creation of the SAZ. Needless to say, he didn't tell her that she killed them all while under the Geass's control. Even though Lelouch has been treating Rolo throughout R2 as an in-universe Replacement Scrappy and recently tried to get him killed due to him murdering Shirley, Rolo narrowly saves Lelouch's life then proves he'd rather die protecting the only family he's ever known - even if that family started out as just another group he was supposed to infiltrate. As he dies from the overuse of his Geass, Lelouch assures him that he does care for him. That said, Lelouch taking the time to bury him and his words in the preview suggest it wasn't just this trope.

Foreshadowing
 Code Geass / int_9d12bbc1
comment
Foreshadowing: Near constantly, leaning into Freeze-Frame Bonus, particularly in the first season. In Narita, when C.C.'s attempt to Mind Rape Suzaku ends up resulting in her being mind raped, there is a flash of a woman in a blue dress and, as Lelouch notices, the Aries Villa. Turns out the woman was Marianne and C.C. has a stronger connection to her than Lelouch knows at this point. The biggest might be near the end of Stage 19: The Thought Elevator (which itself ends up being very important to the plot come R2) activates and a blond child is shown smiling evilly as he does so. There is also a quick, but lingering focus on Lelouch's Geass eye which seems to activate in response to it. Lelouch then goes on to show in the next few episodes increasing pain in his left eye. This turns out to be warning signs about his Geass about to reach the permanent state; something that, by C.C.'s reaction when it happened, happened way too soon. The implication is that V.V. pushed for Lelouch to develop his Geass faster for his own reasons, though it's unlikely he had anything to do personally with when it went down.

Quit Your Whining: Kallen does this to Lelouch during his Heroic BSoD brought about by the reopening of the SAZ. Played with in that she is exactly as unsure as he is. Suzaku does this to Lelouch, with a mixture of Get a Hold of Yourself, Man!, when Lelouch finds out that Nunally is alive, and begins to despair. Suzaku tells him to suck it up and remember Zero Requiem.

Secret Keeper
 Code Geass / int_9f970427
comment
Secret Keeper: For the vast majority of season 1, only Lelouch and C.C. know who Zero is. Due to the events of the S1 finale, Kallen is let in on the secret (technically, so are a few other characters but due to reasons, they aren't sure if Zero is S2 is the same one as in S1.) Then all the higher ups of the Black Knights know who Zero is when they betray him after learning about some of his dirtier acts. However, they don't reveal his identity to the general public and say he died due to wounds from combat. Thus everyone mentioned above become keepers of a final secret; that Lelouch became a hated dictator to unite the world against him so they would find peace with each other. As only they knew who Zero was the whole time, when Suzaku appears dressed as Zero and assassinates Lelouch, they realize what his plan was all along. They keep silent and let Lelouch go down in history as one of the worst tyrants of all time as was his plan for peace.

Animals Hate Him
 Code Geass / int_9fd18130
comment
A more convoluted example: In an incident not long after Suzaku starts school at Ashford, he's attacked by Arthur the cat and falls on top of Shirley. In closeup, it looks like a highly suggestive embrace. For a second or two, they look as if they're about to kiss, whether deliberately or not. But as soon as the camera pulls back to a medium shot, the situation looks more innocent: Suzaku's hands are not on Shirley's chest; one is on her arm and the other is in Arthur's mouth — Arthur is biting him. And on second viewing it's clear the whole scene is a Red Herring: Shirley's eyes are shiny and romantic not because she's being embraced by Suzaku but rather because they've been talking about Lelouch, with whom she's in love.

The larger the battles in Code Geass, the more this trope rears its head. The smaller and earlier battles (such as the massacre of Shinjuku Ghetto) appear sensible for both Lelouch and the Britannian forces (at least when Clovis isn't giving orders), but by the time of Code Geass R2, everyone's armies eventually end up using Napoleonic massed-infantry tactics (or "line of battle" tactics from the Age of Sail in the case of naval/air-naval forces). Vehicles that would be better suited to a support fire role are lumped into tight formations with the rest of the Cannon Fodder.

Sarcastic Confession: Lelouch alludes to his Geass in this sort of style while talking to Euphemia in Stage 22. Unfortunately for him, he just lost the ability to control it, and like Mao, his Geass from that point on was always on. So when he jokingly told her to kill Japanese people, she went and did exactly that.

Celibate Hero: Lelouch honestly doesn't seem that interested in women or sex. Possibly Mommy Issues given his fixation on avenging his mother and creating a better world for his sister. It is implied that, aside from these two, he does love C.C., Shirley and Kallen, as shown by refusing to let Kallen throw away her life for him and choosing to avenge Shirley's death. But, though each of those three have surprise-kissed him at least once, the only time Lelouch tries making a romantic or sexual advance of his own is when he's in the middle of a Heroic BSoD and is looking for anything that might comfort him. He makes this advance on Kallen, no less.

Vehicles that would be better suited to a support fire role are lumped into tight formations with the rest of the Cannon Fodder. Lelouch also enters the battlefield multiple times, even though he's not a skilled fighter. However, he does this because he believes that no commander can expect his men to follow if he doesn't risk himself. Also justified when Rolo uses Lelouch's mech. He makes a comment akin to: "I didn't know the absolute defense field was so hard to calculate! My brother must be a genius!" And honestly, most of Lelouch's time on the battlefield is using that thing.

MacGuffin
 Code Geass / int_a6c69bd
comment
When season two rolls around she finishes another prototype nuke which, thanks to the government backing her research, actually works this time. This helps her turn out not to have just been a token nerdy kid all along. This lets the atom bomb fall into place as season two's MacGuffin. The show's various superpowers start trying to use Mutually Assured Destruction to finally stop Zero and his now global anti-geass anti-tyrant revolution. This actually sets up one of the best literary subversions of this trope, as season two's episode 18 finally depicts an atom bomb being used against millions of innocent people. Although the viewer would have been able to see this as just another A Million Is a Statistic moment, an off-screen Nunnaly apparently gets killed, too, forcing the audience to feel like they've suffered a loss instead of witnessed a plot device. This moment also marks a major Heel Realization for both Nina and Suzaku.

Two Scenes, One Dialogue
 Code Geass / int_aa368af0
comment
Two Scenes, One Dialogue: Between Lelouch and Suzaku, in Season One, episode five. A bit of a Ho Yay / Foe Yay as they each pontificate and allow the audience to the commonality and common purpose that, ironically, will divide them. It's a running feature in the show. Some of them are awesome, others (the dialogue shared by Bismarck and Kaguya when the UFN forces came to liberate Japan) is just Narm.

Modesty Towel
 Code Geass / int_ab1064b3
comment
Modesty Towel: "Imprisoned In Campus" has a towel-clad Kallen storming in on C.C. to complain about how their plan at the beginning of season 2 had her in a Playboy Bunny. Turned into a funny moment when she realizes C.C. is in the middle of a meeting with a few gentlemen from the Chinese Federation. In an oddly-effeminate (if understandable) moment she screams and runs behind a screen. Angrier than ever, she continues to complain to C.C. and almost has the towel fall off in the process. Special edition DVD implied that the Aomori incident had Kallen and C.C. fleeing wearing only towels. Other media showed that the Black Knights were almost caught by Britannia while they were at a hot spring and they had to run away.

Sleeps in the Nude: When C.C. shows up unexpectedly at Lelouch's home and enters Pretty Freeloaders mode, she immediately takes over Lelouch's bed and casually starts stripping out of her outfit to go to sleep in front of him without a care. When he protests, she remarks "A gentleman would sleep on the floor." Kallen is shown sleeping topless on her bed, with a Toplessness from the Back shot as she sleeps on her stomach.

Alas, Poor Villain: When Mao dies, we know that he only became this way because of what C.C. did to him.

He snaps out of it just long enough to see what he was forced to do.

A somewhat chilling one occurs in R2. In episode 10, Lelouch inspires his command staff to battle by declaring he will demonstrate to the Chinese Federation the difference between strategy and tactics. Six episodes later, Nina is discussing mounting the F.L.E.I.J.A. on the Lancelot, and Lloyd cautions her not to confuse a strategic weapon with a tactical one. This distinction comes up again in "Nunally in Wonderland."

Oh, Crap!
 Code Geass / int_ad1db87c
comment
Oh, Crap!: Loads and loads. A prime example is when Lelouch and Suzaku took over Britannia. It's a global Oh Crap moment. A more tragic one is when Lelouch finds out his Geass stays on permanently, right as he joked to Euphemia about ordering her to kill all the Japanese people, which she proceeds to do right away, ordering her troops to do the same. Being the Manipulative Bastard that he is, he utilizes the ensuing chaos to further his own agenda, albeit regretting it tremendously. One example, close to a Villainous Breakdown, occurred when Cornelia utterly Out-Gambitted Lelouch in their first battle and demanded that all Knightmare Frame pilots in her own forces show their faces. He had a massive panic attack. Around the end of the first season, the normally stoic and snarky Lloyd freaks right the hell out when Nina appears in a Ganymede, a nuclear-powered Sakuradite bomb strapped to its chassis.

Pyrrhic Victory: The Battle of the Narita Mountains fits this for Cornelia and the Britannian forces. They took down the Japanese Liberation Front base and destroyed the new Knightmares that the JLF had acquired, but lost two-thirds of the Knightmare Frames that they were using in the battle, and Zero, the Black Knights and many of the most important JLF fighters escaped. All in all, the real winner was Lelouch.

Late in the second season, Lelouch exploits this by giving Schniezel the order to "obey Zero". Lelouch of course is Zero...until he's not. This means that once Lelouch completes his Thanatos Gambit, Schniezel is still nullified as a threat because he has to obey Suzaku, the new Zero.

Loophole Abuse

comment
Loophole Abuse: In episode 8 of R2, Zero accepts Nunnally's plans to restart the SAZ, and privately makes a deal with the Knights of the Round that he would be exiled instead of executed for his most recent terrorist actions. Suzaku agrees to the plan, and then after they announce Zero's exile, the Black Knights create a smokescreen in the area with 1 million Japanese, during which they all don Zero costumes. Since they were all Zero, Suzaku would have to be able to identify the real Zero (which he is forbidden to do), let them all go (and thus give Zero his army), or order another massacre (which would no doubt caused more rioting and rebellion in Area 11). Ultimately, Suzaku decides to let them leave, his reasoning being that the insurgents are better off gone.

Aerith and Bob: In this anime, characters with names like Jeremiah and Shirley play alongside characters with names like Lelouch and Villetta. Counts doubly for Schneizel, which is not only not a name but manages to sound like a German foodstuff, though it may be just the German name "Schneider" mistranslated through Japanese Ranguage. Note that if the name sounds really weird, there's a strong chance the character is a child of Emperor Charles.

No Romantic Resolution: Well, Lelouch is dead at the end after all. The closest he got to a resolved romance arc ended with a dead Shirley and/or his farewell kiss to Kallen, neither of which counts as much of one. There's also C.C.: near the end, Kallen asks her if she's in love with Lelouch. She replies "I don't know" but it's relatively obvious that the answer is "Yes".

Lady-in-Waiting: Or rather a military variant thereof according to the Novelization. Being a Four-Star Badass/Warrior Princess who doesn't keep personal attendants, it became customary for a distinguished female army cadet to be assigned to serve Princess Cornelia in this manner. While the tasks involved are menial in nature, this is considered a huge honor only granted to the female cadet with the top grades in the intermediate training of military academy of the Area the princess is currently residing in. Marika Soresi, who later would join the Valkyrie Team, was appointed as such for the weeks preceding the Black Rebellion.

A Nazi by Any Other Name: Emperor Charles's speeches before large crowds instantly call up images of Hitler or Goebbels addressing similar audiences. The fact that these speeches are mostly about Social Darwinism, and that the 'hail' in 'All hail Britannia!' is actually pronounced much closer to German 'heil' than to English 'hail' by the Japanese voice actors, also helps (althouth that could also be just their awesome English skills speaking).

Fun with Acronyms: F.L.E.I.J.A. The "J" doesn't appear to stand for anything, and is just there to make the pronunciation approximate the mythological name "Freya". The other possibility is that the "J" is there to make it sound like "flayer". It does rather effectively to the outer skin of Knightmares that are destroyed when Schneizel is trying to get to the heart of the opposing force. That is Lelouch.

Xanatos Gambit
 Code Geass / int_c32ff031
comment
Xanatos Gambit: Lelouch and Schneizel are experts at it. In episode 7 of R1, C.C. gives Lelouch a succinct description of the trope: "If you're so good, you should be able to set up the conditions however you want" (i.e. "create a win-win situation for yourself"). He takes the words to heart for his next plan: he and his new Black Knight Organization rescue Britannian citizens from a Japanese terrorist plot. Cornelia has no choice but to acknowledge the Black Knights (and let them leave in peace) in order to keep civil unrest from growing in the wake of Britannian deaths at the hands of "Elevens". Rolo's conversion into Lelouch's ally also counts. See the trope page for details. Schneizel is an interesting take on this: he will not fight if he can't be certain he'll win (note his chess match against Zero, where he forfeited with a florish, and his last big scene in the series, where he flees from a fight where he has only a chance — however high — of winning.

Irony
 Code Geass / int_c335b9ec
comment
Irony: During his first battle using the Lancelot, Suzaku says to himself that he needs to finish the rebel forces off as fast as he can so he can find and save Lelouch and the girl that turns out to be C.C. Moments later, he spots a Nightmare Frame hiding in a partially destroyed building that he pegs as the head of the rebel forces and proceeds to attack it. It just so happens that Lelouch happens to be the one piloting said Nightmare Frame. Three-quarters through season 1 of Code Geass when Suzaku is going to sacrifice himself to hold Lelouch/Zero in place for a massive missile strike, Lelouch whips out his Geass and commands Suzaku to 'live' thereby making a Heroic Sacrifice impossible. Exactly one season later in R2, while fighting (and losing to) Kallen the Geass activates causing Suzaku to fire the FLEIJA warhead, destroying most of Tokyo and supposedly killing Nunnally. Also ironic is how the freedom fighter Lelouch, who reveres the human will, has the power of Mind Control that can crush it completely. A case of Cosmic Irony occurs early on when nobody can figure out who Zero is, but Lelouch almost gets unmasked by a cat. Lloyd Asplund, a possibly Asexual Celibate Eccentric Genius, is engaged to Milly Ashford, arguably the Ms. Fanservice in a cast choke-full of attractive female characters. Two episodes after her declaration of The Power of Love and just one right after she finally requites her own love for Lelouch, Wrong Genre Savvy Shirley is killed by Rolo. Especially ironic in that she could have saved Lelouch from the path he would go down in the subsequent arc, and that her death was a catalyst for much of it. Also Ironic that after the "Orange Incident" Jeremiah was told by Guilford that his options were to continue working as a grunt, or go work on an orange farm. His profession after Lelouch's death? He works on an Orange farm with Anya On a smaller scale, the main antagonist of the story is the world's most powerful superpower, the Holy Britannian Empire, which, despite controlling over a third of the world at the start of the series...doesn't actually control Britain. It does appear to be based on the Holy Roman Empire, which was neither holy, nor roman, nor an empire; similarly, the Holy Britannian Empire wasn't holy (it was anti-theistic, for example the Emperor denounces the Ten Commandments for Social Darwinism and planned to kill God) and wasn't Britannian (i.e. the British Isles), although it is an empire. note It's been all but officially confirmed that creators' intention are that the Britannian Empire is suppose to be an allegory for the US. As much sense as that makes, once you know that you can see some of the evidence of this... if you happen to have read the show's manual. Lelouch's entire plan to save the world was based on an attempt to make it 'gentler' for his sister Nunnally. He cares about this plan so much he sacrifices his own life for it, but as he lies dying in front of her, she tells him that the only kind of world she ever wanted was one where they could live together. Also, Suzaku killed his father to stop a war, but it really just started one. Also ironic is that at the beginning of the series, Lelouch took on the title of Zero, to become a symbol of Justice against the Britannian emperor's tyranny, while Suzaku had joined the military hoping to change Britannia from within. At the end of the series, Suzaku and Lelouch had Their roles switched. Suzaku became Zero, as a symbol of Justice, never to live again as Suzaku Kururugi, while Lelouch became the Britannian Emperor, and gave his life in the process of changing the system from within. While posing as his brother, Rolo notices that Lelouch only shows his real smile to family. This implies that prior to that, Lelouch only smiled for real to Nunnally, who for obvious reasons couldn't see it. For most of the series, Lelouch goes with his plans not only to help Nunnally, but also to bring justice to his mother and calls his old man out for doing nothing to prevent her death. However, it's revealed that Marianne has been on Charles' side all along. After realizing this, Lelouch comes to hate his mother within just an episode, and makes her disappear along with Charles. After manipulating Rolo into siding with him wholeheartedly, Lelouch acts very kind and gentle to him to make the boy trust him more and therefore easier to use. Rolo ends up believing all of that. He really thinks of himself as Lelouch's brother and even gets jealous of Nunnally for being his real sibling. Even after Lelouch flat out tells Rolo that he has been using him all along, he denies that by thinking that it's all just a lie, and ends up pulling a Heroic Sacrifice for Lelouch. However, as Lelouch - fakely or not - admits to have been lying and listing him in the list of the people he cares about, it may not be so ironic after all. The series have its plot driven by the war between Lelouch and Suzaku, with the Black Knights on Lelouch's side. Near the end, the Black Knights betray Lelouch, while Suzaku joins his side.

Let's See YOU Do Better!: When one of the rebels complains to Lelouch about being cut off in episode 10 of Season 1, the rebel claims he should be the leader. Lelouch then pulls a gun on the rebel, then immediately offers it to him, and says that if anyone can do better than him, then they should shoot him right there and now and take charge. No one dares to do it.

Shout-Out
 Code Geass / int_c75df49a
comment
Shout-Out: The basic setting of the franchise is a world of continuous warfare between 3 superpowers: a British-style Empire, a continental European Union, and a Chinese Federation. Except for some minor deviations, this is almost a picture-perfect recreation of Oceania, Eurasia, and Eastasia from 1984. In Turn 5, C.C. cosplays as Chachamaru and Shirley as Mikuru. Kallen's Hot-Blooded fighting style, suspiciously Shining Finger-like attack, and Black Knights hairstyle are a fairly obvious shout-out to Domon Kasshu. To the point that fans insist that she's somehow Domon's daughter. In Stage 5, when Suzaku takes Euphie to the Ghetto there are two figures on the ground at the memorial site, one looks a lot like Ultraman, and the other Godzilla with a beak. The opening scene of the first season shares several similarities with the opening scene of Neon Genesis Evangelion.note Specifically, the loud background cicadas, the early shot of the Mysterious Waif, and the sudden attack. Lloyd's ''Congratulations!'' could be a reference to that one anime with a(n) (in)famous scene featuring that same word. The Geass-mark is identical to the shape of the Gundam Deathscythe's antennae, though this may just be a coincidence... but then again. Both shows are made by Sunrise, so it may be intended. The Guren S.E.I.T.E.N. Eight-Elements Type bears quite close resemblance to the the Gunzan, which in its own show was repaired and named Gurren. The sequence shown when Lancelot is equipped with the Float System is strangely similar to the sequence played when the X-105 Strike is equipped with its Aile Striker Pack. The overall design is more similar to that of the ZGMF-X 09 A Justice's back-mounted weapons platform. Similarly, the Float System mounted on the Guren Mk.2 is a mix between the Aile Striker Pack and the Force Silhouette. One of the cosplayers at the festival in Stage 21 looks a lot like Remilia Scarlet with a darker color palette. It's rather easy to miss, as it's only on the screen for a few seconds. Suzaku's lines to Lelouch about the latter betraying the world before it betrays him hearken back to one of the most famous quotes from Romance of the Three Kingdomsnote For context, uttered after he kills his father's sworn brother whilst mistakenly believing the latter to be plotting to kill him, and getting called out on it by Chen Gong: Clovis' state funeral is a scream-out to Garma's from Mobile Suit Gundam, with Emperor Charles taking the place of Gihren Zabi in deliberately using Clovis' death to advance Imperial power and his Social Darwinist ideology, fists in the air, and "All Hail Britannia" in place of "Sieg Zeon."

Deliberately Triggering the Trap: In episode 7, Cornelia tries to lure out Zero by attacking the Saitama Ghetto; Lelouch immediately recognizes it's a trap since it's an almost perfect recreation of Clovis's attack on Shinjuku Ghetto in the first couple of episodes. He still goes anyway because of his overconfidence.

Informed Ability: Tohdoh's military skill. Battles led directly by him do not go so well. However, he does justify the apparent disparity by saying that his reputation is largely hype (it is also possible that he was a master of pre-Knightmare era tactics, but failed to adapt to the realities of Lensman Arms Race). Xingke at least makes good on the hype surrounding him.

Slower Than a Snail: During the school festival in R2, C.C. gets stuck in a tub of tomatoes that Arthur then takes to bring to another part of the festival, so Lelouch and several of the other students chase after him. Lelouch, not being in very good shape, manages to get outrun by everyone else chasing after Arthur (despite getting a head start), but it doesn't get truly humiliating until Kallen in a chunky, full-body mascot costume and Milly in a VERY fancy dress both manage to speed past him.

Spoiler Opening: Let's just say that if they wanted us to think C.C. and Suzaku's "deaths" in ep1 were going to stick, that opening utterly ruined it. The second opening of R2 starts at episode 13, and besides most of the Holy Knights, it shows pretty much every main character in the series alive at that point except for Shirley.

Nuclear Weapons Taboo
 Code Geass / int_cdaa029f
comment
Nuclear Weapons Taboo: Sakuradite is explosive enough that for most of the series it stands in for any kind of uranium or plutonium-based weapons. However, it's shown early in Season 1 that Nina has a hobby doing pioneering research into nuclear fission. The writers play this off as her being a token Child Prodigy that will remain in the background, only going back to her for Fanservice from time to time. Later you find out that her research overlaps with what Lloyd is doing on the Lancelot project so she winds up mattering to the story in a more meaningful way. This is something of a reveal for the viewers, who are going to presume that the practical harem Lelouch has set up with the student council girls means that they're just going to be The Chick for the entire story. This is a good way for a writer to take advantage of the viewer's expectations and pays off in an unexpected way when she interrupts the season-finale's climactic battle by attempting to blow up the entire Tokyo settlement with a home-made atom bomb, in an attempt to kill Zero for killing Princess Euphemia. Suddenly a bunch of what seemed like pointless Fanservice turns out to have all been there to help set up important story elements. When she finally pushes the button her nuke fails to detonate (she is a high school student, after all). Lloyd verifies the idea as being grounded in real science, so instead of chiding her for her behavior the Britannians give her nuke project government grant money so she can research her theoretical super-bomb. Although the fans are divided on this element of the show, you can neutrally say that this is an excellent example of the writers making sure that the character turns out to be more important to the story than just a token geeky kid who sits in the background like in most series. When season two rolls around she finishes another prototype nuke which, thanks to the government backing her research, actually works this time. This helps her turn out not to have just been a token nerdy kid all along. This lets the atom bomb fall into place as season two's MacGuffin. The show's various superpowers start trying to use Mutually Assured Destruction to finally stop Zero and his now global anti-geass anti-tyrant revolution. This actually sets up one of the best literary subversions of this trope, as season two's episode 18 finally depicts an atom bomb being used against millions of innocent people. Although the viewer would have been able to see this as just another A Million Is a Statistic moment, an off-screen Nunnaly apparently gets killed, too, forcing the audience to feel like they've suffered a loss instead of witnessed a plot device. This moment also marks a major Heel Realization for both Nina and Suzaku.

Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Lelouch in the first two episodes, after seeing both Suzaku and C.C. shot dead right in front of him, and almost being killed, himself. Judging by his reaction in Stage 3, it's not likely that he would have killed his half-brother in cold blood had it not been for that. When Suzaku briefly goes crazy after Euphemia's death and blasts through squads of Knightmares roaring a Big "NO!" at the top of his lungs. Lelouch does this towards the Britannian Geass research facility after Shirley's death. He orders everyone there killed, even though they're non-combatants.

Sword/Shield Contrast: The second season debuts Lelouch's Ace Custom the Shinkiro, which is a Barrier Warrior Knightmare Frame that relies on his incredible mental abilities to provide a near impossible to pierce defense. This nicely contrasts him with Suzaku's Lancelot, which is an incredibly offensive Knightmare that has shown the ability to perform Curb-Stomp Battles and Big Damn Heroes moments since day one. By the end of the series, they are working together and prove the contrasts between their two KMF makes them a great team to the point they can charge straight headlong into the path of a nuclear bomb and successfully defuse it using their capabilities.

 Code Geass / int_d243518d
comment
In Spite of a Nail: Despite the fact that Word of God has an extensive explanation for how the the universe of the series diverged from our own, this isn't too apparent when watching it, as so many features (like shopping malls, news stations, etc.) match the real world, and the Japanese resistance group uses the "red sun" flag, giving the obvious impression that it is a remnant of this world's Japan. Outside of Britannia, every country has its usual name. Although it's hinted that the "official" history of Britannia is mostly or entirely made up. According to official records, the first divergence is a Celtic superking uniting all clans and stopping the Romans from conquering England, the discovery of sakuradite near Stonehenge and Japan, Elizabeth I having a son, the American Revolution failing through the bribing of Benjamin Franklin, Napoleon founding the EU and conquering England, the remaining English establishing themselves in America and Elizabeth the third dying and leaving the throne to the duke of Britannia, giving rise to the nation of Britannia. Due to hints, many fans assume however that most of the early events were made up to make Britannia seem more legitimate (like linking the royal family to the Celtic superking). Some other fans place the point of divergence even further down the line, due to the incredible similarities with the real world.

Outside Man, Inside Man: Lelouch and Suzaku, although Lelouch had already "left" the empire before Suzaku joined it, and they became friends in the interim. It works more if you look at it from Suzaku's point of view after the events of the first season. Rakshata and Lloyd might also be an example, considering how they used to work together and Lloyd likely never worked for anyone other than the empire.

What the Hell, Hero?: Lelouch delivers one to C.C. when she tells him about Mao; he's mad that she would burden a young child with Geass and then abandon him to his fate rather than trying to help him, or failing all else, putting him out of his misery. Lelouch himself gets called on this from time to time by various characters or his subordinates who sometimes question his motives for taking certain actions, especially by Suzaku.

Surprisingly Good English: The textbooks, news articles, magazines, etc. Makes sense since it takes place in a Japan under British rule. Occasionally averted, such as with the Knights of the Round—the original Japanese had them as Knight of Rounds, which makes little sense. The hotel hijacking episode also had some Engrish on the newscast.

Kallen gets one in episode 3, turning into a Shower of Awkward when Lelouch interrupts it to brings her a change of clothes and during the ensuing conversation, she accidentally causes the shower curtain to open and exposes herself to him. She is either seen as a Sexy Silhouette behind a yellow shower curtain or with convenient Scenery Censor or Shoulders-Up Nudity to avoid showing anything.

Technicolor Eyes: Violet or purple eyes seem to be a somewhat common Britannian trait as Lelouch, Rolo, Euphemia, Cornelia, and Nunnally all have one or the other; C.C. and Villetta both have gold eyes, and Anti-Villain Suzaku has green eyes (which are very unusual but not impossible for a Japanese person).

Memento MacGuffin: Suzaku's pocketwatch (more accurately, his late father's pocketwatch), which symbolizes his being stuck in the past. When he leaves it behind during the first season's finale (with the body of the woman he loved, shot dead by his best friend), it's supposed to signal the fans that the kid gloves are off. He also keeps his pin(?) designating him as Euphemia's knight, holding it introspectively and brandishing it at others as a symbol from time to time (notably in R2 episode 17). And Rolo's locket, which was given to him by Lelouch. It symbolizes... the er, "brotherly friendship" between him and Lelouch. Also, Euphemia's quill pen, which he keeps with him and uses to write. His cat Arthur is shown running off with it in R2 episode 5. Boy, he sure does have a lot of stuff on him.

Lightning Bruiser: The signature role of (almost) every Knightmare Frame depicted in Code Geass; even the early model Glasgows tore through slower and more conventional armored vehicles during the invasion of Japan (as is seen in many early Cold Openings of the first season). New models—especially the Lancelot and Gurren in all their forms—trump older Knightmares by being even more of a Lightning Bruiser than they were.

Artistic License: The way chess is portrayed makes nearly no sense according to the rules, but serves as a metaphor for how Lelouch and his opponents think. One of the more Egregious examples is when Schneizel tests Zero during a chess game by moving his own king deliberately into check, forcing Lelouch to actually move away from the free win because his pride won't allow him to accept victory on those terms. Lelouch should have simply pointed out that under the rules of chess you are literally not allowed to deliberately check your own king and forced Schneizel to take the move back and make a legal one instead. You can't remove and replace contact lenses that easily. But it looks awesome, and besides, Lelouch is the type who would practice that until he got it right.

Despair Event Horizon: A couple of the characters have been warped by their misfortunes. Most notably, Suzaku after his Geass command to "Live" forces him to nuke the Tokyo Settlement. After spending the entire series up to that point being a shining example of Honor Before Reason, his (albeit unwitting) slaughter of nearly 35 million people causes him to completely abandon his ideals and agree with Lelouch that immoral means are often necessary in order to achieve one's ends.

Keeping the Enemy Close: Lelouch does this to Rolo during the Geass raid and the second Tokyo battle before he intends to dispose of him as payback for murdering Shirley, as well as Villetta by blackmailing her out of ratting him out. Unfortunately for the former, Rolo makes various other Black Knights suspicious by telling them he trusts him the most. Should've reined him in a bit more. Earlier in the season, Villetta and Rolo are assigned to the OSI detail to watch over Lelouch in order to keep him from using his Geass or becoming Zero. Lelouch manages to flip the script on them both via blackmail of the former's relationship with Ohgi, and convincing the latter that he has no future with Britannia, respectively. (Unfortunately, he fails to keep an absolute leash on either.)

comment
From Nobody to Nightmare: Suzaku went from ordinary foot soldier to Ace Pilot extraordinaire named "The White Grim Reaper". Lelouch went from Ordinary High-School Student (with an extraordinary backstory) to Rebel Leader and finally, Emperor of the world. Jeremiah Gottwald started as a Butt-Monkey who's constant losses to Zero gets him demoted. Then he gets armed with anti-Geass and eventually becomes the second most powerful man in the world under Emperor Lelouch. Emperor Charles is a cruel, manipulative man who is a neglectful parent to all of his children at best. Before that, he was a scared little kid who clung to his brother V.V. after they discover the grisly results of their mother's assassination by ambitious nobles. Likewise, V.V., Charles's brother, turned into an immortal being after getting a Geass contract (somehow) and rose to prominence as Charles's strongest ally while also becoming a very skilled manipulator and leader of his own groups.

Authority Equals Asskicking: Several examples — Played straight with the Britannian Emperor, Cornelia, Guilford, and the Knights of the Round. Marianne, Lelouch and Nunnally's mother, is also implied to be one, as she was highly respected amongst many of the Britannians. On the Black Knights side, Kallen, Tohdoh, the Four Holy Swords, Xingke, Gottwald/Orange after his Heel–Face Turn and joins Lelouch, and CC when she isn't fighting one of the main Britannian leaders/Knights. Refreshingly averted with Zero himself. He is a skilled strategist and can turn the tide of battles, but does poorly when he's facing the enemy head-on, or trying to get away from them without some kind of help.

As Long as It Sounds Foreign: Numerous Britannian names are non-descript or based off on words that aren't generally used for real-life names (unless you want to take into account the Alternate History angle). This could be said about Nunnally, Schneizel, Euphemia (which means "well-spoken" in Greek, but is the root word for "euphemism" — she at least has that going for her), Rivalz, Rolo, and so forth.

 Code Geass / int_e431c24c

Not Quite Dead: Used only a bit (once in the first season, 2-3 times in the latter half of the second season). But nonetheless it has become somewhat of a meme, so much that someone made a small comic about Euphemia coming back from the dead after the end of the series. The count could easily be increased, depending on what definition you use. Season 1: C.C. (a bunch of times, but it was expected after the first), Suzaku (in episode 1, saved by his father's watch), Villetta (shot by Shirley) and Mao. Season 2: Villetta and Ohgi (Ohgi was wounded by kunai and then both of them jumped off a cliff into a shallow river full of rocks; neither is even scratched with no explanation provided), Nunnally and Sayoko (they survived thanks to a decoy shuttle, but the audience was still initially misled), Orange (returned after sinking into the ocean), Cornelia, Guilford (with no explanation too), Suzaku (briefly believed to be dead during the final episode of R2; never visibly shown to exit the Lancelot Albion before its final explosion, so how did he get out is left unexplained). That's at least nine potential instances.

Giant Robot Hands Save Lives: Suzaku catching a falling woman in his Knightmare Frame. Kallen catching Zero. Rolo holding Lelouch. Played with a bit: the woman hadn't been falling for too long, and Suzaku boosted up to her height, then began to fall to catch her without much injury. She and her child would have probably been bruised though. Same with Kallen, since Zero was blown out of a ship, not falling.

For most of the series, Lelouch goes with his plans not only to help Nunnally, but also to bring justice to his mother and calls his old man out for doing nothing to prevent her death. However, it's revealed that Marianne has been on Charles' side all along. After realizing this, Lelouch comes to hate his mother within just an episode, and makes her disappear along with Charles.

Expy: Several characters look like or have a personality similar to characters from the Gundam metaseries or from previous CLAMP works. Sometimes, these overlap. Suzaku looks and fights like Syaoran from Tsubasa -RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE-. Considering CLAMP did the character designs for both, it's not surprising. Lelouch resembles TRC Kamui, especially in the CLAMP artwork. The CLAMP lineart design for Nunnally is a direct recycle of ×××HOLiC's Kohane Tsuyuri. Kallen has many similarities to Domon Kasshu. It doesn't help that Kallen's mother is voiced by Yuri Amano (who voiced Rain Mikamura in G-Gundam). Euphemia and Suzaku also look almost exactly like Lacus and Kira. Very similar plot-wise too. Lelouch and Kallen are, as previously mentioned, aspects of Char Aznable The Britannian Royal family are the Zabi family, with Charles being both Degwin and Gihren (passionate speeches), Schniezel being Gihren (hands-on leadership, want his dad's place in the hierarchy), Cornelia being Kycilia (ruthless and cold personality, horrified by her brother's actions), and Clovis being Garma (naive younger sibling who's in way over his head). Nunnally certainly shares personality traits with Mineva (used as a pawn). In the mecha side, there's the Sutherland Sieg (a basic Knightmare Frame, retrofitted with parts from the Siegfried) which obviously is the series's scaled-down equivalent of the GP03 Dendrobium Orchis. Also, the Lancelot, especially at the start of the series, is a lot like a Gundam, generally speaking, since they're white colored Super Prototypes whose pilot fell into the cockpit.

Insistent Terminology: Done both ways. When called Elevens, characters of Japanese origin will angrily say "We're not Elevens, we're Japanese!" and during the scene that Nina makes at a ball in the Chinese Federation, Kallen tells her that she isn't Britannian, she's Japanese. Nina then rather hysterically says "No you're not! You're an Eleven!"

Exact Words: Lelouch tells the geassed police to "Shoot Mao". He is back just fine and dandy in the next episode, and chides Lelouch because he told them to "Shoot Mao", not "Kill Mao". Late in the second season, Lelouch exploits this by giving Schniezel the order to "obey Zero". Lelouch of course is Zero...until he's not. This means that once Lelouch completes his Thanatos Gambit, Schniezel is still nullified as a threat because he has to obey Suzaku, the new Zero.

Who Wants to Live Forever?: C.C.'s "one wish" that Lelouch was originally obliged to grant her by their contract was to finally die, which would make Lelouch bear the curse of immortality in her place.

Big Damn Heroes: When Lelouch finally reaches the end of his rope, runs out of cards, put into checkmate, is completely and utterly screwed... this happens. Though it didn't happen at the end of R1. Lloyd did this once during the Black Rebellion when he saved the student council. Lelouch does this unintentionally when his dramatic entrance in episode 20 of R2 coincides with Bismark's near-execution of Suzaku, giving Suzaku enough of a distraction to escape.

Named Weapons: Most characters with personal Knightmares have a custom Knightmare with a unique name. Though curiously not Cornelia, who just has a Gloucester. There are technically names for each weapon used in the series, but most of them are generic names and don't have attention drawn to them. However Bismarck is rather proud of his humongous sword Excalibur.

"Get out of Jail Free" Card: The Novelization specifies that Britannia has a law called the "Privilege of Exemption from Royalty" that allows a member of the royal family to be absolved to any and all prior crimes in exchange of losing all their birth rights. It sounds like a sweet one-time deal, but some have consider it a Fate Worse than Death and there is at least one precedent where a member of the royal family killed himself as soon as he was ordered to use the privilege so he wouldn't die a commoner. This law becomes relevant in the main story because this is how Euphemia planned to absolve Lelouch of his crimes as Zero thanks to the fact that the law can be used to pardon someone other than the royal that exerts the privilege, which is a loophole that has been exploited in the past by people who wanted to save their spouse or their knight from being sentenced for major crimes.

Tyrannicide: Lelouch Deconstructs this trope—and in a metaphorical sense, you could even say he Exaggerates it. One of his most consistent goals throughout the series is to assassinate the tyrannical Emperor of Britannia. When he eventually succeeds, he takes up the throne and deliberately fashions himself into an even worse tyrant, specifically to give all of humanity a single shared enemy to unite them, leading to a better world after his arranged assassination. In other words, he metaphorically destroys the role of Emperor itself.

Easily Forgiven: Villetta is easily forgiven by Ohgi for nearly killing him, which partly led to the Black Rebellion's failure. He even goes AWOL to see her, knowing she's threatened to kill him again. And when she comes in with the Geass "evidence" against Lelouch, none of the Black Knights question who she is or what Ohgi's been doing with her. They even accept her word point-blank. Ohgi himself is easily forgiven by various characters for leading the Black Knights' betrayal of Lelouch. He is easily forgiven by Kallen for nearly having her gunned down for defending Lelouch, on the premise that she must be under Geass control for questioning him.

He's an estranged son of an important political figure with a grudge towards a whole family of nobility, uses a fake name, wears a mask, has a younger sister, is handsome and charismatic, has no loyalty to anyone except himself, and no qualms about killing people who are nice to him in the past. In fact, if you take this perspective, Code Geass becomes Mobile Suit Gundam with the perspectives skewed, instead of following Amuro (Suzaku), you're following Char. Kallen has Char's piloting ability and his penchant for red mecha.

Took a Level in Cynic: Lelouch acquires this at age eight, when his mother is murdered in what may be a court intrigue, about which his father the Emperor does nothing. When Lelouch calls him out on this, his response is to send the kid over to an enemy country as a hostage and bargaining chip. Not long after, he invades the country that is hosting his own child, in a very bloody war. No wonder the kid ends up the way he does.

While they don't look like twins now, especially with the age gap between them, the way they treat their fellow humans like pawns in their plans is rather appalling.

Dangerously Short Skirt: The female Ashford Academy uniforms, but none of the female characters (even the established Action Girl) have ever fought in it. It seems that in this Alternate History, miniskirts are completely acceptable in all contexts. The Black Knights' female uniform includes a miniskirt. It's like Mustang got his dream come true. A special mention also must be made of the demure, imperial princess Euphemia, making a groundbreaking political announcement on live worldwide TV, being lifted up on the hand of a giant mecha with a giant pizza behind her, wearing a dangerously short dress with bystanders all around the mecha's feet. Somehow no underwear is seen, and she seems completely oblivious to the risk.

Brick Joke
 Code Geass / int_fe0330fb
comment
Brick Joke: Lelouch tests his Geass by telling a girl to once a day make a new mark on an unmarked brick of the building. Several times in the series, you see her walking to and marking the building, and during episode 5 of R2, you see the marks on the wall with the last mark being only half done. This is actually becomes a little less humorous when some minor lines in the supplementary material or within the show bring up that this girl is now living in Britannia and keeps getting up int the middle of the night and trying to walk out of her house. The Geass never wore off. When Jeremiah is exonerated but demoted for the "orange" incident, he is told that he can either restart his career as a pilot or become an orange farmer. At the very end of the series, he settles down and starts an orange farm.

Beauty Is Never Tarnished: Subverted precisely one time in the entire series, where the otherwise Bishoujo looking Nina learns about Princess Euphemia's death and has a mental breakdown, complete with the facial expression you'd expect in real life. It's absolutely horrifying.

Exotic Eye Designs: All Geass users have their pupils change into a bird-shaped sigil. Those that fall into the command of a Geass have their scleras highlighted with the color of the Geass itself.

Death Seeker
 Code Geass / int_fff371b4
comment
Suzaku may not have a Geass, but he does get a command from Lelouch to "live", forcing Suzaku to survive by whatever means necessary. For a Death Seeker like Suzaku, this is bad enough as it is. But it goes From Bad to Worse. Thanks to the "Live" Geass, he ends up nuking Tokyo and causing thirty-five million deaths when using the nuke was the only thing left to keep Kallen from killing him. Then it becomes Cursed With Awesome as he turns the command into a quasi-SEED mode. In the Grand Finale... well, let's say that he was given a Fate Worse than Death.
