Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Slayers (marketed as The Slayers in the U.S.) started as a serialized novel in the Japanese Dragon Magazine (no relation to the American one of the same name). Originally it was supposed to follow the adventures of the Cephied Knight, a champion for good named Luna Inverse. However, when filling out her background, the writer found her little sister Lina far more interesting.A series of sword-and-sorcery light novels with equal parts comedy and drama that was adapted into an anime series. Has five TV seasons (Slayers, Slayers NEXT, Slayers TRY, Slayers Revolution and Slayers Evolution-R), six OVAs, five movies, six video games and a whole lot of manga made. Became extremely popular in the West, in part because of its quirk of having a female as the lead in a Shonen series.Lina Inverse is a young and very powerful sorceress. She wanders the world looking for treasure to steal and magic to learn. Unfortunately (from her point of view), she tends to end up in situations where she's got to save the world instead of just make a fast buck. She will attempt to wring money out of most situations, such as once extorting gold from a town that was actively being ravaged by a dragon. She's also got an amazing temper, having destroyed both the dragon and the town she was protecting with one spell because the dragon embarrassed her by not stepping on her. She still expected to get paid, too. She has earned the titles "Bandit Slayer" (it's not stealing if they've already stolen it!), "Dragon Spooker", and "Enemy Of All That Live" in a few short years.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Much to Lina's chagrin, she ends up with a group of people following her around, usually because they're all trying not to get killed by something. In the OVAs, set before the TV show, this is the deranged sorceress Naga, who believes Lina is following her around as her rival. In the TV series, this is the dumb-as-a-jellyfish swordsman Gourry Gabriev, the justice-obsessed princess Amelia, the taciturn chimera Zelgadis, the self-proclaimed "mysterious priest" Xellos, and occasionally the shrine maiden Sylphiel.She eventually comes to like them, and is beginning to fall for Gourry by the end of NEXT. She'll deny it if asked, and insists she's only after Gourry's sword.The series alternates between serious fights and quests to save the world and silly slapstick humor. There is one Cross Dressing episode per season, and they will sometimes take breaks in the middle of serious story arcs or fights for semi-plot-related silliness. It manages to find a nice balance, and is one of the must-see series for Standard Fantasy Setting.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })This show has all five seasons up legally on Hulu and Funimation, (though they can't stream these outside the US), in both English audio and subtitles. They are currently available on DVD. Tokyopop's English translations of the first eight novels are out of print, but still relatively easy to find used. J-Novel Club in July 2020 announced their intentions to localize all the novels from the beginning, including the ones Tokyopop didn't touch.On May 16th, 2019, Dragon magazine officially announced that Hajime Kanzaka is starting work on another arc of the series. This was following the release of a new mainline novel in 2018, 18 years since the last one.Not to be confused with the band Slayer or Buffy the Vampire Slayer.Has a Character Sheet and a Recap page.Compare it to Record of Lodoss War if only because of the quip that Lodoss is what Dungeons & Dragons GMs wish their campaigns were like, and Slayers is more like they really are.

Hotter and Sexier: While every form of media has its share of mild fanservice, it's taken Up to Eleven in the Hourglass of Falces continuity: Gag Boobs (Amelia, Millina, and Noa, the Guest-Star Party Member) Excessive crotch shots (Lina to compensate for her Pettanko status, and Amelia in the form of panty shots) Skimpified outfits (Amelia and Millina) Bring My Brown Pants (Noa) Walking Shirtless Scene (The antagonist of the story, Gourry and Luke at certain points) Skinship Grope (Amelia gets subjugated to this by Lina for no apparent reason) And in the Super Explosive Demon Story manga, Zelgadis is frequently without a shirt. There's even a color splash page of him removing it. Later artwork of Lina, namely in later Slayers Special/Slayers Smash. They feature her in more sensual poses, and every other drawing of her flaunts her nipples, irregardless of how modest she's dressed.

Heroic BSoD
 Slayers / int_1439161f
comment
Heroic BSoD: Several. Slayers NEXT: Lina's begins when she learns the true nature of the Giga Slave: drawing power from The Lord of Nightmares is the exact same thing as summoning Her directly, and miscasting it can cause the entire universe to be consumed, making her friends die horrible deaths. Cue her being in a conundrum on how to defeat Chaos Dragon Gaav. It gets worse when Hellmaster Phibrizzo reveals himself and kidnaps and brainwashes Gourry, just as she began to realize she was falling for him as he did for her. She is able to snap out of her funk, but The Stinger culminates when she casts the Giga Slave during the finale anyway. Same season above: Amelia has a brief one when Gaav gives her a Hannibal Lecture about her feeble notions of justice; he then proceeds to brutally wound her. Milgazia is able to heal her, but the screen of death comes back when Gaav tries to attack her again and the normally Nigh-Invulnerable Zelgadis is severely wounded for the first time protecting her from his blade. Pure horror for her and the viewers. Finally, Evolution-R has both Pokota and Zelgadis in the same episode: Rezo, with his soul trapped in a jar, explains that he only helped and sealed away the people of Pokota's kingdom in order to experiment in gaining his sight back, and that he never intended to follow through with helping them. The normally cocky Pokota cries and loses it. Zelgadis loses it big when Rezo confesses that it is impossible for Zelgadis to ever become human again, and he might've known that it wasn't possible. Cue a crying Zelgadis to nearly go berserk until Pokota intervenes.

Darker and Edgier: Slayers TRY to the earlier series. It really pushes the Grey-and-Gray Morality to the maximum, featuring, among other things, a clan of Shinzoku (which are Physical Gods in the shape of dragons and which are devoted to the Forced of Light) who are willing to let some other world be destroyed if it assures the protection of their own and who committed genocide against another tribe of Shinzoku because they envied their power, and the revelation that the Creator Deity basically started the battle between good and evil simply to amuse "herself", a fact that pushed the Mazoku Lord Dark Star Dugradigdu and his Shinzoku Lord counterpart Night Dragon Volpheed over the Despair Event Horizon and convinced them to fuse into a single creature in hopes of destroying the world and remaking it on their terms, beyond the interference of the Lord of Nightmares.

Big, Screwed-Up Family
 Slayers / int_154aa477
comment
Big, Screwed-Up Family: Word of God states that Gourry came from one, and this is why he became a lone mercenary in the first place. His entire family screwed itself over in who would possess the Sword of Light, and it's implied that most of his immediate family is dead because of it. The Seirune royal family is almost just as bad, as there seems to be a lot of conniving and backstabbing over the throne. Prince Phil has faced two assassination attempts now, one by his own brother and the other by his nephew! Lina is REALLY scared of her older sister, Luna, implying she may be the strongest character in that universe.

Not-So-Harmless Villain: Jillas from above. Despite being comic relief for the first quarter of TRY, he manages to separate the gang from Filia and Xellos, get the others into a situation where they could't use magic, all through tactical and psychological manipulation. And he later outdoes himself by creating an explosive rocket, that is as powerful as a dragon slave.

All There in the Manual
 Slayers / int_17ce80aa
comment
Every magic spell. Justified in non-anime material — mastery of magic in the Slayers setting is accomplished by skill with "Chaos Words", the incantations. The more powerful a sorcerer is, the less words they need; simply invoking the name is all the good wizards actually need to cast a spell. And if they use more Chaos Words than they actually need, the power of the spell is amplified further. This also means that only the very best wizards in the world can actually cast a spell without even speaking its name.

Anti-Magic: The Spell "Flow Break" dispels everything but White Magic and causes animation spells (such as armor and Golem) to stop working. There was a Magitek train in TRY, the power source of which absorbed all magic, making attack spells about as useful as throwing toy squibs.

Put Off Their Food: In the light novel The Battle of Saillune, Lina and Gourry are attacked by a number of lesser demons that possessed items of food, including a nasty tentacle monster that emerges from their squid stew. After the fight, they order more food, and Gourry requests they skip the squid stew — though Lina disagrees, saying it'll take more than that to make her lose her appetite.

Stripperiffic: Naga's outfit has a remarkable gap-to-fabric ratio. According to Amelia in Slayers: The Hourglass of Falces, their mother made it a tradition that the women of the royal family "are expected to wear a sort of dress that evokes a 'bondage' image when they reach a certain age." Therefore, she abandoned her regulation pants for a very-mini-skirt, so she would be used to that sort of exposure when the time came. Word of God states that Naga found her Iconic Outfit in their mother's closet after her funeral.

There is also a form of Wild Magic that draws from the creator, the Lord of Nightmares. Due to its chaotic nature (as the Lord of Nightmares is Chaos itself), almost no one knows about it, and devastating results can happen if it is misused. Lina is the only one known to wield this form of magic.

Wrong Genre Savvy: Amelia, the self-proclaimed hero of justice in a show full of otherwise morally ambiguous characters. She's usually convinced her group are the good guys, even when they're clearly only in it to turn a profit, and often marks others as villains simply because they oppose her. In one episode, she can't decide which side are the heroes: either Lina, or a pair of bounty hunters out to arrest her. Confused about who to help, she sits on the sidelines of the battle agonizing over it until she has an epiphany: "Of course! Justice always triumphs! So whoever loses will be the bad guy!" She then attacks BOTH groups at once, figuring whoever crawls out of the rubble was the hero.

Good Is Not Nice: With the exception of Gourry, Amelia, and Sylphiel, all of the main characters are fundamentally self-centered jerks, especially Lina. Lina's sister Luna is the avatar of Ceipheed, one of the world's most powerful gods, but is arguably worse. Xellos is perhaps a case of Nice Is Not Good taken to extremes. He's by far the most charming, affable, and pleasant of the group... and also an elemental being of pure Chaotic Evil — the sole reason for the existence of his creator's creator is to annihilate everything.

Dope Slap: It's pretty common in this series. Lina gives Gourry these on a normal basis. Zelgadis gave one to Amelia after she said that all villains have to wear black. Gourry gave one to Zelgadis after he mentioned Amelia's lost sister and upset her. Lina once slapped Zelgadis, but immediately regretted it, being made of stone and all.

Anticlimax: The first episode of NEXT has Martina unleashing a giant man-driven mechanical golem to use against the Slayers cast. First, she uses it to fire an energy beam that obliterates a mountain in the distance with a huge explosion to show off its power. Just as Martina turns the target sights on Lina and her friends, the golem malfunctions and breaks down. Lina points out that the golem had been in storage for centuries, so it eroded from lack of maintenance.

Anachronism Stew: Quite a few, all Played for Laughs. The most prominent would be clothing, ranging from typical fantasy armors and robes, to modern-looking sun dresses and t-shirt/pants combos. Zelgadis wears a hooded sweatshirt of all things in an episode of Revolution. There's the odd serious example from time to time, too. Episode 25 of the first series has Sylphiel trying to revive a fallen Lina with modern CPR, including chest compressions.

Model Couple: Lina/Gourry and Zelgadis/Amelia have similar clothes and hairstyles. Xellos and Filia, who are foils (with some Ship Tease), have hair with complementary colors, and wear the complementary colors to each other. In the later novels, Luke and Millina also follow the complementary color theme (Luke wears red, Millina wears green, and they have those respective eye colors also), and even have black (Luke) and white (Millina) hair.

Offing the Offspring
 Slayers / int_27ab0123

Offing the Offspring: Zuuma and Abel in Evolution-R. The family that dies together, stays together? Christopher to Alfred in the original novels; Christopher is forced to stab him for treason, whereas in the anime, Alfred is killed off by Mazenda. On a technical level (and accidentally), Amelia to her uncle Randionel in the anime. This is averted in the novels, since Randy appears (and dies) in the first Slayers Special novel (i.e the prequel series). Averted in the original light novel version of this storyline, where Abel actually succeeds in reaching his father's humanity long enough for Lina to finish him off, and survives to eulogize him afterward.

Wholesome Crossdresser: Miwan, a one-shot character from the crossdressing episode of NEXT, is forced to dress like this due to him being born to the royal family of a strictly-run Lady Land. Humorously, Zelgadis winds up falling for "her" until he reveals himself as a man. A lesser known one is a character from Zelgadis' side story in one of the Slayers Special novels: a female named Miranda who dresses as a man in order to bounty hunt.

Bust-Contrast Duo: The series beginning presents us with hot-headed female lead Lina and supporting female character, the dark-haired Sylphiel, vis-a-vis the affections of male lead Gourry. Again, the chest issue comes up in regards to the Fiery Redhead, but most consider it an Informed Attribute. Later in the prequel series before Lina meets Gourry, her companion was Naga the Serpent, an arrogant and Stripperiffic sorcerer with a chest even bigger than Sylphiel (and she doesn't doubt to show it to Lina) that usually antagonizes her, seeing Lina as The Rival, despite the fact both travel and work together.

Misplaced Retribution: Happens at least a couple of times in the series, and is even a driving force in the plot: Eris in the original series tries to kill Lina in revenge for killing Rezo, the man she loved. Technically, Rezo was killed by Shabranigdo, who had been possessing him up until then, and emerged when he was summoned (Rezo not knowing the demon was sealed inside of him). Then Lina killed Shabranigdo. So maybe Lina sort of killed Rezo, From a Certain Point of View. In TRY, Valgaav has a vendetta against Lina for allegedly killing his master Gaav. This one makes even less sense, since Gaav was killed by Hellmaster, not Lina.

Cursed With Awesome: Zelgadis is part golem due to Rezo, meaning that some attacks can't phase him (most apparent when trying to choke him) and on rare occasion will beaming him with a rock work.

Lethal Joke Character
 Slayers / int_36249acd
comment
Lethal Joke Character: Jillas. For someone with no magic and physically weaker than everyone else, he still managed to be mildly dangerous. Even Zelgadis was impressed with Jillas by the end of TRY. In Revolution he even has a cannon named after him, if you notice the soldier ordering them to fire the Jillas Cannon. On the heroes's side is Sylphiel, the group's on-again-off-again white mage. She knows exactly two black magic spells: Flare Carrot, and the Dragon Slave (which she casts better than Lina does).

 Slayers / int_36c94bed
comment
If ordered to, Xellos would gladly kill Lina and her friends, but he still likes hanging around them because 1) they're endlessly amusing, 2) they can easily be manipulated into killing Mazoku opposed to his personal agenda for him, and 3) Lina is a Person of Mass Destruction and bloody mayhem is like crack to Mazoku. Besides, he's not a glutton and is satisfied with suffering humans cause to themselves, what with his fancy for sports, pranks, and Martina.

 Slayers / int_39c443f0
comment
Played straight and justified, sort of. In short, the backstory of the setting is that the peninsula where the story mostly takes place was the sight of a great battle against the Mazoku long ago, a war that drew magically gifted individuals from all over the continent; when the war ended, one of the Demon Lords And Arch Devils, Hellmaster Phibrizzo, cast a spell that sealed the entire peninsula away from the outside world. As a result, magic remained strong, even flourished inside the barrier, but outside magical skill and lore was lost, forcing them to turn to technology instead. This causes an issue when the gunner Jillas appears in TRY, as he seemingly uses muskets, but all of their bullets are non-fatal.

Deus ex Machina: The Blessed Blade at the end of the first series. It comes out of nowhere with very little explanation behind it in the second to last episode, and can somehow hurt the merged Copy Rezo/Zanaffar, which contradicts what we've heard several times about Gourry's Sword of Light being able to hurt it. This is further made strange when in Revolution and Evolution-R it is shown that the Sword of Light CAN destroy it as a major plot point.

Shamanistic Magic: Elemental magic, consisting of the classic elements of Fire, Water, Earth, and Wind, along with a fifth element, Astral magic. Attack spells for the four elements are physical in nature, while Astral magic consists of unconventional spells and attacks that target one's astral body (similar to one's "spirit" or soul). The Ra Tilt spell is the most well-known example for the latter.

Long Runner: Began in 1989 as a serialized set of novels that are still running today; the anime aired from 1995-1997 (And was Un-Cancelled in 2008), and two OVAs and five movies were made across 1995 to 2001; numerous manga and games have also been made. Most of the products were released in the 1990's. As of May 2019, Hajime Kanzaka has started writing a new arc continuing the mainline series of novels, 30 years after the series was born and nearly 20 years since the last mainline novel.

Tranquil Fury: Lina in the brass rackets episode of NEXT. She was already running on Unstoppable Rage when Martina taunts Lina about her flat chest, prompting Lina to enter the brass racket tournament in order to take Martina down for the insult. In the final match between Lina and Martina, Lina discovers to her shock that her racket was replaced by a fake (courtesy of Xellos), which prevented her from hitting the magic-induced ball back and therefor suffered from many cheap shots from Martina. Once Lina gets her racket back, she goes into this trope, taking on an eerily calm and hollow expression while glowing red. Lina proceeds to serve out highly destructive serves at a now terrified Martina while still having an expressionless look, determined to nail the arrogant princess with all the rage she has accumulated. The one that hits destroyed the entire stadium.

No Hugging, No Kissing: Hajime Kanzaka wrote the novels this way, explicitly stating that there would be no romance. Official Couples Lina/Gourry and Zelgadis/Amelia are a product of the anime. He later admitted that, although he hadn't planned on romance, Lina and Gourry wound up developing feelings for each other anyway. In fact, at the end of the original novels, Lina thinks Gourry wants to propose to her (and becomes disappointed when it seems like it's not the case) after he asks her if they can visit her parents. When the novels were re-released in Japan, the final volume also features new art that has Lina and Gourry wearing matching bracelets. The Amelia/Zelgadis pairing on the other hand was wholly unintentional by the author, but later artwork by Rui Araizumi features the two together in mildly romantic situations.

Paper-Thin Disguise: Kanzel and Mazenda in NEXT. Literally the first time they appear, they don't even try to hide the fact that they're evil. Josephine in an episode of the OVA. Josephine is a proud mother who has hired Lina and Naga to make her son a successful military leader. They're initially skeptical as Jeffrey is skinny, sickly, poorly trained, and hilariously overconfident. It turns out that these aren't problems, because the instant someone says something disparaging about him, Josephine comes charging onto the scene, wearing a mask, to smash them with an oversized warhammer. Jeffrey is the only one who sees nothing odd about this, and the only one who buys her claims that she's an anonymous tourist passing by (it happens to him that often).

Stock Sound Effects: Fizz Sound Creation did the sound effects for the first three seasons, so expect to hear sound effects from Dr. Slump, Dragon Ball, Gundam, City Hunter, Crayon Shin-chan, One Piece and many, many others. This actually goes for Revolution as well as Premium, both were handled by Swara Productions, note  Founded by former Fizz employee Katsumi Ito and as a result, Swara uses many of the same sound effects as Fizz so it's no surprise that you'll hear Saint Seiya and Sailor Moon sound effects being used.

This doesn't stop him from adventuring with Lina... though, granted, this wasn't revealed until near the end of NEXT where it showed him wiping out a whole clan of dragons with a flick of a wrist. To be fair, it's just as much Lina accepting that she can't get rid of him (As Xellos is for most intents and purposes a god), than her actually wanting him around.

Black Comedy Rape
 Slayers / int_4c851777
comment
Black Comedy Rape: Only in the Japanese version of the first light novel, in regards to Noonsa and the "mating joke"; Zolf suggested raping Lina when Zelgadis captures her in that version. When it was translated by Tokyopop, the kiss joke was inserted instead; the Japanese version of the anime carried the "kiss" notion as well. In the Super Explosive Demon Story manga adaptation, Zolf again suggests rape (and this is also censored when it was translated) Happens again in the third light novel when Lina and Gourry are incarcerated by guards near Sairaag. One of them eggs the idea of rape again, until Gourry intervenes by making a highly inappropriate joke about Lina being sick "in certain places." Lina is not amused in the least.

All of the Other Reindeer: Chimeras, all whom are frowned upon for their appearances (which, in turn, tends to make them emotionally unstable). Beastmen also gain some flak, but not as much. On the other hand, Dragons tend to look down on all of the other races, save maybe the Elves, due to their...nature.

Early Installment Weirdness
 Slayers / int_4f4372e9
comment
Early Installment Weirdness: Most of the novels tend to be very episodic in narrative, moreso in the Slayers Special novels. While the second arc of the main novels was like this, the first arc is one long narrative. The series as a whole began as a self-aware parody of High Fantasy and various Tabletop RPG tropes, albeit with a dogma of its own - the novels and manga, for example, poke fun at various stereotypes, like greasy, dumb bandits, and the anime broke the fourth wall quite a bit. As Cerebus Syndrome kicked in, moreso in the anime, the self-awareness angle was dropped, and the fourth wall was no longer addressed. In the older anime series, the characters were far more cooperative than they were later on. Also, one nice novelty from older episodes that were dropped later on was that new magic or world-related trivia were given an explanation for the viewer; new seasons dropped this.

Body Horror: The Ragunut Rushavna spell, only seen in the novels, turns the victim into a fleshy piece of meat that is repeatedly eaten by snakes for eternity; the victim suffers from this pain endlessly until the caster - usually a Monster - is destroyed. Daymia, a minor character, suffers this fate in the novels (whereas in the anime, he was merely turned to stone).

comment
Disproportionate Retribution: Lina's most famous example may be in the first episode, where she blows up a town she was trying to save while attempting to kill a dragon... because it had deliberately stepped over her rather then crushing her. Happened once over sausages, of all things. In NEXT when Lina unleashed a Dragon Slave on all opposing parties when she found out the treasure she found was not a divine spell of ultimate protection, but rather lost festival dances, and she embarrassed herself for nothing. Did it again moments later when Martina mocked Lina about the musical number she did.

Kiss of Life: Episode 7 of NEXT — During a meal hunt for a dragon on a boat, Zelgadis almost drowns. Amelia suggests giving him mouth-to-mouth, in which he promptly blushes, expecting her to do it. Unfortunately for him, the (male) captain gives it to him. And to make matters squicky, the captain licks his lips after doing so. It accumulates even further when, at the end of the episode, it's revealed that Zel himself resembles the captain's late wife...

CPR: Clean, Pretty, Reliable
 Slayers / int_55473bc9
comment
CPR: Clean, Pretty, Reliable: Before Sylphiel can use a healing spell on Lina in the first season, she had to restart her heart. She begins by pounding on Lina's chest, then doing compressions and Mouth-to-Mouth. When Lina regains her color, Sylphiel applies a healing spell. Conceivably justified in that any brain-damage from Lina's heart stopping or broken ribs from CPR might have been healed by Sylphiel's white magic. It's worth noting that Sylphiel's spell also seemed to replenish the gallons of blood that Lina seemed to have lost when she was struck. Done for laughs when Zelgadis gets waterlogged, Amelia suggests doing this to him to revive him. Audible heartbeats sound, implying Amelia was about to do mouth to mouth with Zelgadis. Unfortunately, when he opened his eyes, the chef Ashford gives it to him, making him give out a muffled scream.

Fortunately, the Lord of Nightmares decides to give Lina back after witnessing this.

Magic and Powers
 Slayers / int_5c3626bd
comment
Magic and Powers: Black Magic: Referred to by that name, this is magic that draws from the Mazoku. Spells of this kind range from attack magic to summoning to curses, like the kinds that Martina uses. White Magic: Also titled that way, most of these are healing and defensive spells, but can also be used for small things like putting out fires. Its source is ambiguous, but Word of God has stated that it has similarities to Astral Shamanistic magic. Shamanistic Magic: Elemental magic, consisting of the classic elements of Fire, Water, Earth, and Wind, along with a fifth element, Astral magic. Attack spells for the four elements are physical in nature, while Astral magic consists of unconventional spells and attacks that target one's astral body (similar to one's "spirit" or soul). The Ra Tilt spell is the most well-known example for the latter. Holy Magic: The polar opposite of Black Magic, drawing from the Shinzoku. Because of the barrier that covers the peninsula where the story takes place, Shinzoku are unable to either go in or escape, so Holy Magic is not accessible to humans during the course of the series. Golden Dragons are the main practitioners of this form of magic. There is also a form of Wild Magic that draws from the creator, the Lord of Nightmares. Due to its chaotic nature (as the Lord of Nightmares is Chaos itself), almost no one knows about it, and devastating results can happen if it is misused. Lina is the only one known to wield this form of magic.

Dissonant Serenity: Rezo (but not his replica) and most Mazoku are quite calm or even mildly amused when fighting.

Xellos almost never gets angry, even when reminding the audience that he is a monster. When his cool does dissipate, it's downright disturbing.

Big Eater
 Slayers / int_5fcedca
comment
Big Eater: Part of the world's background details is that magic burns up calories when cast and so mages need to eat more than usual. It's most prominently exemplified by Lina, mainly because she is a very powerful sorceress and casts potent spells at the slightest excuse. Gourry, despite (or perhaps because of) being a Badass Normal, regularly eats just as much as she does. Amelia also frequently eats just like Lina does when travelling with her, partially for the same reasons as Lina, partially for the funny in seeing a princess wolfing down tons of food like an animal. Zelgadis, on the other hand, is rarely seen eating and certainly not in the same fevered manner, possibly because of his chimera nature. Filia the dragon priestess is seen gulping down an entire cauldron's worth of hotpot as a once off gag about halfway through the ''TRY'' season.

Freeze-Frame Bonus: Used in the form of subliminal frames in the earlier seasons of the anime: a gag frame, usually of a super-deformed version of a character, would appear as someone gets hit. There are some nifty sight gags as well, such as when Gourry rips off the dress he's forced to wear in the first season, the viewer can spot a stuffed bra full of fruit and what appears to be a Zelgadis plush doll.

comment
Image Song: They exist, but the theme songs sung by Megumi Hayashibara greatly outnumber them. Lina, Sylphiel, Filia, and Valgaav have one, Zelgadis, Amelia, Gourry, Xellos, and Martina have two, and Naga has three. There is also the "Maiden's Prayer" duet sung by Amelia and Lina's actresses, and finally, one song where the four leads all sing together.

Undressing the Unconscious: In TRY Episode 15, after Lina is knocked her out she awakens to find herself in a strange land and changed into clothing to simulate Alice from the Alice's Adventures in Wonderland story. She actively dwells on the fact someone must have undressed her to change her into those clothes and has a delayed Naked Freak-Out]].

The Reveal
 Slayers / int_6b2b3b59
comment
The Reveal: Numerous instances where a character turns out to be a Mazoku or in cahoots with a Mazoku. The Lord of Nightmares' attitude and her statement that her power is inseparable from her personal attention and even presence, which shows her relationship with Lina in a new light. Eris created Copy Rezo and went after Rezo's legacy so she could get revenge on Lina for Rezo's death. Too bad we learned three seasons later that he was never dead to begin with and the entire second half of season one's events, which included the destruction of Sairaag as well as Eris' death, could've been avoided entirely if Rezo had only told her about the Hellmaster's Jar.

Fantasy Gun Control
 Slayers / int_6bcfbc7e
comment
Fantasy Gun Control: Played straight and justified, sort of. In short, the backstory of the setting is that the peninsula where the story mostly takes place was the sight of a great battle against the Mazoku long ago, a war that drew magically gifted individuals from all over the continent; when the war ended, one of the Demon Lords And Arch Devils, Hellmaster Phibrizzo, cast a spell that sealed the entire peninsula away from the outside world. As a result, magic remained strong, even flourished inside the barrier, but outside magical skill and lore was lost, forcing them to turn to technology instead. This causes an issue when the gunner Jillas appears in TRY, as he seemingly uses muskets, but all of their bullets are non-fatal. The beginning of Revolution shows that Outer World technology is at least being exported to the Old, as a ship in the first episode and Saillune's army in the twelfth both use cannons.

Bishounen: This show may actually beat out Yu-Gi-Oh for the sheer amount of girly-looking men in it. Gourry, Xellos, Zangulus, Rezo, the list goes on. Prince Phil is the only exception, and jokes are made about him NOT being Bishounen. Apparently in the Slayers universe, being strong and not bishounen makes you a bandit. Gaav is an exception as well. The only bishounen thing about him is his hair.

Calling Your Attacks
 Slayers / int_71bd62b9
comment
Calling Your Attacks: Every magic spell. Justified in non-anime material — mastery of magic in the Slayers setting is accomplished by skill with "Chaos Words", the incantations. The more powerful a sorcerer is, the less words they need; simply invoking the name is all the good wizards actually need to cast a spell. And if they use more Chaos Words than they actually need, the power of the spell is amplified further. This also means that only the very best wizards in the world can actually cast a spell without even speaking its name. Also exploited: Lina once called Fireball, causing her opponents to flee in terror, but cast only a simple Light spell. Amelia's dad Phil also likes doing this ("Pacifist Crush!", "Kindness to All Creatures Kick!", "Good Will Towards Men Smash!", "Joyful Reunion Bearhug!", "Benevolent Giant Swing!", "Brothers Unite Hand Slap!").

Vanilla Edition: Funimation's digitally-remastered re-release of the series lacks all of the outtakes, commentary, and other extras that Central Park Media's DVDs had.

Put on a Bus: Several cases. Zelgadis does not appear at all in the Knight of Aqualord manga. Also, while he does leave for eight episodes after the tenth episode of season 1, he is one of the three with bounties on his head two episodes later, but this is never mentioned when he returns. Finally, he, Amelia, and Xellos are bussed off when the first arc of novels ended; Luke and Milina replace the former two, and Xellos doesn't reappear until the final novel. Sylphiel is put on a bus after NEXT and is only mentioned once in TRY; Filia replaces her for that season. Sylphiel does return at the end of Revolution. Zangulus and Martina are also sent off when NEXT ends. Finally, Filia herself is bussed once TRY is over, and any other characters exclusive to that season (Jillas, Valgaav, the "Overworld" inhabitants) go with her. None of them are ever mentioned again — unless one counts the reference to "Jillas cannons" in Revolution.

It Began with a Twist of Fate: Lina Inverse is hardly an everygirl, being one of the most powerful magic-users of her world.

Failure Gambit: While his defeat in the first season was not necessarily intentional or foreseen, in Evolution-R, the Red Priest Rezo reveals that he intentionally set up a situation in which he would be defeated by Lina and the evil lord Shabranigdo sealed inside of him would be released. In true Heroic Sacrifice style, he realized that this was the only way for the mighty demon lord to be erased from existence once and for all, making Rezo less of a villain at the end of the day.

Summon Bigger Fish
 Slayers / int_7c48b272
comment
Summon Bigger Fish: Of a sort. Because black magic in this setting draws on the power of various Mazoku, there's a bit of a hierarchy to its spells; they can't harm a being of equal or greater rank than their source, so to fight a Mazoku with black magic you need to draw on one of its superiors. Lina can generally get around this since the Dragon Slave calls on their king and progenitor. This is also what makes the Giga Slave and Ragna Blade so powerful. Their source, the Lord of Nightmares, is an embodiment of primordial chaos responsible for creating the known multiverse. Good luck finding a bigger fish than that.

Widely Spaced Jail Bars: In Revolution, Zelgadis caught Pokota in a cage with bars so far apart, the little guy had to spread his arms in order to hold onto two bars at once. But he still couldn't get out.

comment
Knight in Shining Armor: Parodied. Both Lina and Sylphiel has an image of a prince — noble, heroic, handsome, blond, clad in white, riding on a white charger. Then they meet Amelia's father, Philionel el di Seyruun. He's the Crown Prince. Very impressive looking and quite badass. Peace- and justice-loving. Merciful. Minor user of White Magic. He even sometimes rides on a white horse. Problems? He looks like a bandit who just climbed down the mountain, and is slightly nuts.

Tsundere: Lina is a tsun-tsun subtype, but she definitely has a few dere-dere moments. The reverse is Filia, ignorance-based holier-than-thou attitude aside, with her Berserk Button (which Xellos has a talent for finding and pushing).

Zelgadis in the anime, namely during filler episodes where he's either being used (Lina using him as a boat anchor in NEXT comes to mind) or is teased for his Grumpy Bear attitude when everyone else dives headfirst into embarrassing situations.

Stepford Smiler: Amelia — noted more often in the novels, but the few times it's shown, her family's constant death threats and arguments have had their emotional toll on her. It also explains why she's so close to her father. In this case, she always tries to keep her head up. Also, by Word of God, Gourry. His family's more or less dead because of the Sword of Light, save a grandmother and a brother who he hates. Combine this with having gone through wars and mercenary jobs, and you have one embittered individual. If it weren't for Lina's father telling him to find a purpose in life, he'd probably be a Byronic Hero.

Interspecies Romance: In TRY, one of the filler episodes involves a love between a fish-girl (as in, a female fish with humanish arms and legs) and a male human... which ends up with the two taking a "cure" that simply turns her into a human and him into a fish-man, leaving them in exactly the same mess they were in before. They do consider it something of an improvement at least, as they now also find each other physically attractive. In the post 2000 series there's an episode where a fish-girl tries to flirt with Gourry, due to a mania that's coming over the locals. A ghost possessing Lina's body comes on to Gourry in one of the early episodes of the first season. The Amelia/Zelgadis relationship kind of falls into this as well, given Zelgadis is technically only 1/3rd human.

Dragged into Drag/Cross Dresser: Once per season, sans (R)evolution-R, (and always in episode 17) the party ends up needing to be in a disguise for some reason or another. Lina and Amelia happily dress up the male members of the cast as pretty girls. Only NEXT shows Zelgadis and Xellos doing it, but poor Gourry is always involved when it happens. Xellos has the time of his life.

At the end of NEXT and Slayers Premium. In the former, Gourry chases Lina, possessed by the Lord of Nightmares, into a dimension beyond his own and begs for Lina back, the two kissing and then being sent back to their world. When they wake up, neither of them seems to remember in the slightest what happened. In the latter, after being placed under the Octopese Curse, Gourry tells Lina "I love you" at several points — but Octopese is basically saying lots of random words that have an entirely different meaning for octopi ("flatchested", for example, is an expression of great dismay). When things clear up, Lina asks Gourry what "I love you" means in Octopese. "I'm broke, so you'll have to pay for the hotel." This revelation causes Lina to explode, angrily chase Gourry across the beach and beat him senseless.

Broken Pedestal: Zelgadis once fought on Rezo's behalf, believing he was the generous healer most people believe (and also because Rezo is his guardian and great-grandfather). This all changed when he found out how far Rezo was willing to go to cure his blindness, including experimenting on Zelgadis, and worse, willing to risk the destruction of the entire world.

Above Good and Evil: The Golden Lord/Lord of Nightmares was the original creator of both the Mazoku and the Gods, but seems to side with neither. When a powerful Mazoku gets the bright idea to use her power for his particular purpose (destroying the world), she just blasts him into nothingness. After making world-destroyers and world-protectors, she's mostly absent, but sometimes meddles anyway. If she has an agenda besides just sitting back and watching what happens, we never find out what it is.

The Chosen One: Lina's sister Luna is the Knight of Ciefeed and is able to wield his strength; alledgedly it can rival that of high-level Mazoku such as Xellos. Lei Magnus, Rezo, and Luke are the known holders of the seven split pieces of Shabranigdo (the other four are unknown). And in the third season of the anime, Lina is chosen by Filia to take on Dark Star Dugradigdu; it is revealed by the final episode that she was an ideal choice over Luna because of her ability to wield the Lord of Nightmares' power, and, unlike Luna, who is affiliated with the gods,(mainly specializing in White/Holy power), Lina has affiliation with neither side, and could easily combine Black and Holy magic to create the magical power needed to defeat Dugradigdu.

Dangerous Forbidden Technique: The Giga Slave, if miscast, destroys the entire universe. Several episodes are devoted solely to Lina attempting to find ways to NOT cast the Giga Slave, because it's basically the worst solution to any problem. Unlike many series, however, the Giga Slave is successfully avoided on a number of occasions. In the third season, for example, it's use is repeatedly mentioned as a last resort, but it is never actually used.

Apocalypse How: Across three of the five seasons of the anime and in a few novels, the Big Bad usually shoots for Class X (obliteration of the planet), regardless of their reasons why. And that's not even mentioning the Giga Slave. If that were to run wild, it rates as a Class Z. And it's the hero's original spell.

Red Mage: Shamanism is literally about this, as it combines defensive spells, offensive spells, and utility spells that neither Black Magic nor White Magic can replicate, such as flight and water-breathing. Its only weakness is that it is pretty bad at facing off against Mazoku, as only Astral Shamanism spells can really hurt them and most of those are far weaker than comparative Black Magic or "Holy Magic" spells.

Training the Gift of Magic: The magical gift comes in two measurable parts: "bucket capacity" and "pool capacity". High levels of either attribute are an in-born gift, but if you have those, you also need to study and learn magical lore. Gourry Gabriev, for example, has magical gifts but lacks the intelligence and memory to learn magical skill.

The whole story of TRY is that beings from the "Overworld" (one of the other worlds seen in Lina's explanation of the War of the Monster's Fall) come to the Slayers world to try and destroy the Big Bad; a fusion of their Arch God (Night Dragon Vorfeed) and Arch Lord (Dark Star Dugradigdu). For many years, fans thought that this meant that Hajime Kanzaka's sci-fi series Lost Universe and Slayers were part of the same multiverse, though Word of God was that he merely chose to reuse the names. This is not helped by the fact that the Translation Notes for the anime of the former do explicitly say that the two animes are part of the same multiverse.

Nowadays, Gourry tends to act like such an Idiot Savant that you wonder how on earth he puts his armor on in the morning or remembers who Lina is (as opposed to the fairly competent, if rather tactless and sometimes absent-minded, swordsman we see in the first episode) - and if it's at all possible the English dubs take it even further. This is finally somewhat reversed come Evolution-R, where he appears to have been given back shades of his former competency.

In TRY, Valgaav has a vendetta against Lina for allegedly killing his master Gaav. This one makes even less sense, since Gaav was killed by Hellmaster, not Lina.

Mazoku also count; not only are they effectively Made of Iron and able to regenerate, but their real bodies actually exist on a separate plane of existence, with their material form merely being a projection of their psyche. They're also immune to varying levels of Black Magic (as monsters are the power source of Black Magic). The more higher-ranked the Mazoku is, the harder it is to kill it, which leads rather nicely into Authority Equals Asskicking.

Continuity Nod: The ending for Revolution features the plane chart that notes the hierarchy of the five Mazoku generals, the four Dark Lords, and the Lord of Nightmares suspended in the background. The two spots on the chart reserved for Phibrizzo and Gaav are destroyed (as they were Killed Off for Real in NEXT). In an odd meta-version of this, it is revealed that Gourry's Sword of Light's true name is "Gorun Nova" which in the Lost Universe series takes the form of one of the Five Lost Ships created by the ubervillain of that world, Dark Star Dugradigdu. In the Slayers part of the multiverse (which only exists in the series, and not the Slayers novels) DarkStar Dugradigdu's five generals became the Weapons of Light instead of spaceships. Vurumugun (the real one) is in attendance at Zangulus's wedding at the end of NEXT.

Stealth Parody: Lina's group is rumored to be based on D&D campaigns; Zelgadis being a 'serious' role-player whose epic backstory and angst is somewhat made silly by the antics of the rest of the group, Amelia an overdone Lawful Good type, Gourry is the guy playing for a good time who's only half playing attention, and Lina is the min-maxing spellcaster, and Xellos is the annoying, completely unkillable, and most definitely the overpowered GMPC who largely exists to re-rail the plot when the rest of the party derails it.

Adaptation Dye-Job
 Slayers / int_a4414a05
comment
Adaptation Dye-Job: Lina's hair color has shifted over the years: she began as a brunette (older novels, a few of the movies), transitioning to a coppery red color (older anime seasons and later main novels), and finally to bright red (newer anime and Special novels). Interestingly the fact she was originally brunette has not been completely forgotten by merchandise makers, as a few illustrations and merchandise that were made as recent as 2018 have depicted brunette Lina. Amelia and Xellos both have black hair in the novels which are stylized purple, while both of their hair is straight-up purple in the anime. Also, Amelia's tunic is light yellow in the novels and white in both the anime and video games, and the Slayers Royal games, oddly enough, give her purple leggings in lieu of her pants. Finally, Zelgadis' skin in the older books is a greenish color, his hair is silver, and his eyes are purple. In the anime, his eyes and skin are blue and his hair is purple. Art Evolution in the novels now has his novel design more resemble his anime design. His one unique trait in the novels, however, is a bridge of stone stuck between his left eyelids. Also, his white tunic becomes a deep tan in the anime and games.

Mood Whiplash: Mostly applies to the anime (See Bloodless Carnage above), but can happen in the other mediums as well. Xellos can be silly, goofy and whimsical. Then he opens his eyes. At this point, something absolutely horrible happens. To put things into perspective, the least horrible thing he's done with his eyes open is gleefully torture someone with the intent to kill him. The shift in personality between his 'casual' and serious moods is about as extreme as can be.

Cool Sword: Gourry's Sword of Light. At first, it appears as a regular old sword, but once the blade is removed, Gourry can summon forth a blade of pure monster-slaying light.

Good Is Impotent: In one OAV, Lina and Naga are on the trail of a villain searching for a McGuffin called the "Shadow Reflector" that creates copies which are the opposite of those who look into it. Predictably, they look into it, resulting in a hopelessly pacifistic and nice Lina and a painfully shy Naga. Cue horror from the villain realising what this makes the real Lina.

Ascended Extra: Technically Amelia and Zelgadis, considering the fact that they do not appear in the second arc of the novels at all, whereas they are major characters in the anime and most of the manga and games. By contrast, Luke and Milina, Lina and Gourry's two other party members from the second arc, only appear outside the novels in the Hourglass of Falces manga, where they are part of a six-man band instead. Xellos only appears in five of the novels (cameoing in the last one), so technically he could be this, especially considering his role and given relationship with Filia in TRY. And because of his role in the fourth and fifth seasons, Rezo also qualifies.

Obfuscating Stupidity: Inspector Wizer Freyon. He shows up and immediately tries to arrest Lina for the hideous crime of being herself. Also has a bad habit of interpreting/ignoring everything to suit his theories and conveniently passing out just as a critical piece of evidence presents itself. It's all just an act so he can conduct a real investigation under the guise of trying to bring in Lina, have her storm the bad guy's fortress and take him out by herself. Since the villain was being backed up by royalty, not to mention having hordes of monsters at his command, he couldn't act openly.

Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Gourry. Normally he comes across as dimwitted and scatterbrained, sometimes to the point of seeming completely incompetent (although he was more competent in the novels, to be fair, and underwent more Flanderization in the anime than any other character did), and his memory is so bad that he frequently can't remember past enemies they've fought or even what happened a few days ago. However, when he senses a threat, his fighting skills push Badass Normal about as far as it can go in this series.

She cries and yells him to come back, with no response. After she hears about Zuuma´s threatening, she tearfully begs Lina to follow Zelgadis to protect him. And she cries again after Lina orders her to leave because she is going to fight Zelgadis. She is heartbroken the whole volume until Zelgadis comes back.

Living Doll Collector: Episode 15 of NEXT has one of these, who also turns Lina's friends into dolls and attempts to kill her, for a filler related reason (re: None). It turns out that the collector is actually a doll himself being manipulated by a doll-like Mazoku that he carried around.

Loophole Abuse: Mazokus are fond of these. Alfred, the true culprit behind the assassination attempt of Prince Phil, had Kanzel under contract to work under him. Kanzel no longer wanted to due to seeing Lina perform the Ragna Blade and sought to recruit her power for Gaav. Alfred angrily tells Kanzel that he can't back out since he was under contract and therefore can't act against him. Kanzel agrees that he was indeed under contract to follow Alfred. His partner Mazenda, however, was NOT, so she was able to kill Alfred on the spot.

Mayfly–December Romance
 Slayers / int_b1efb7a7
comment
Mayfly–December Romance: Any possibilities of either Eris or Ozzel getting together with Rezo (as both were in love with him) is more or less this, because they're a normal-aging human and a puppet respectively, and he's at least a century old. Gourry's ancestor Rowdy allegedly got together with a female elf, as addressed in one of the movies, ''Slayers The Motion Picture''; Rowdy is a human; elves age at half the speed humans do (similar to chimeras). Kanzaka Jossed the pairing, though, because of this trope. Zelgadis, being a chimera, ages slower than his friends (a Word of God fact), so he and Amelia could plausibly fall into the Mayfly–December Romance trope.

Blood from the Mouth: Happens during the rougher battles regularly, but it happens to Zelgadis the most. Reasonably, it notifies when his invulnerability is waning, thus signifying that shit will hit the fan. It randomly happens to him in The Reveal of episode 10 of Evolution-R when Rezo tells him that he cannot become a human again; of course, it's presumably symbolic.

Zelgadis and Amelia have a good deal of chemistry and moments together, especially in NEXT. In the final credits of TRY, it is left ambiguous whether they confessed anything to each other, as Zelgadis is seen with a reminder of Amelia: one of her characteristic bracelets. Meanwhile, she is shown looking through the window and thinking, clearly not devoted to her duties. Though most of the teasing is near - gone by Revolution (leaving aside the fact that Zelgadis has become Amelia´s bodyguard and that they spend a lot of time together), the manga counterpart of Evolution - R has some of the most important evidence of feelings for this ship.

Berserk Button: Lina has lots of these. Particularly involving interrupting (or stealing) her meals, her appearance, her 1,001 nicknames, or her status as a Pettanko. Filia herself has a Xellos-shaped berserk button. Well justified since Xellos has murdered thousands of other dragons. Zelgadis has a much more subtle one and it's not played for laughs most of the time: his chimeric body. The only times he ever loses his cool is when he thinks he's found a way to be human again then finds out he's wrong.

You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Xellos, Phibrizo, Amelia, Naga, Rezo, and Sylphiel all have dark purple hair, and Zelgadis' hair is a light lavender color. Pokota has pinkish-purple hair. Many minor characters also have purple hair. If you count it as canon, Luna Inverse is shown to have purplish hair in her cameos, although one manga makes it a more crimson red color. For more variety: Martina and Valgaav have light teal hair, and a minor character from NEXT, Miwan, has dark green hair.

Slayers NEXT: Lina's begins when she learns the true nature of the Giga Slave: drawing power from The Lord of Nightmares is the exact same thing as summoning Her directly, and miscasting it can cause the entire universe to be consumed, making her friends die horrible deaths. Cue her being in a conundrum on how to defeat Chaos Dragon Gaav. It gets worse when Hellmaster Phibrizzo reveals himself and kidnaps and brainwashes Gourry, just as she began to realize she was falling for him as he did for her. She is able to snap out of her funk, but The Stinger culminates when she casts the Giga Slave during the finale anyway.

Xanatos Gambit
 Slayers / int_c32ff031
comment
Xanatos Gambit: Hellmaster traps Lina with one during NEXT. He wants to force her to use Giga Slave because it can destroy the world, which he thinks is the purpose of the Mazoku race. To do this he sets her against Chaos Dragon Gaav, who has rebelled against the Mazoku race. If Lina uses the Giga Slave, he wins. If she uses some other spell, such as the Ragna Blade, he can goad her himself. If Gaav survives the attack, then he finishes off Gaav. Since he's the Hellmaster, he can control her death to prevent her from dying until then. All outcomes work for him. Lina does eventually cast the Giga Slave and summons the Lord of Nightmares, but the latter "politely refuses" to cooperate with Hellmaster's plan.

Shout-Out
 Slayers / int_c75df49a
comment
Shout-Out: One of Lina's go-to spells is "Dio Brando" translated variously as "Dil Brand" (Central Park media) or "Explosion Array" (AD Vision), but it is a shout out to a Big Bad in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. Amelia is at least in part a parody of Sailor Moon, and Gourry's disguise in the first season's cross dressing episode has Usagi's distinctive hair style. Furthermore, an episode of NEXT has Amelia and Lina dressing up in what look like Sailor Senshi fuku for a humiliating musical number. Furthermore, most of Zel's initial appearances have him looking like Tuxedo Kamen's OTHER identity crisis, Moonlight Knight. The magic doctor Lina goes to when her powers are sealed looks exactly like a slightly older Chibiusa, right down to the pink Odango hair. The aforementioned episode of NEXT also has a pair of Single-Minded Twins who look exactly like Shampoo from Ranma ½. There's episode 18 of TRY where Amelia visits the Village of Justice becomes either a Power Ranger or a member of G-Force. Visually, though, they resemble the Ronin Warriors. The whole story of TRY is that beings from the "Overworld" (one of the other worlds seen in Lina's explanation of the War of the Monster's Fall) come to the Slayers world to try and destroy the Big Bad; a fusion of their Arch God (Night Dragon Vorfeed) and Arch Lord (Dark Star Dugradigdu). For many years, fans thought that this meant that Hajime Kanzaka's sci-fi series Lost Universe and Slayers were part of the same multiverse, though Word of God was that he merely chose to reuse the names. This is not helped by the fact that the Translation Notes for the anime of the former do explicitly say that the two animes are part of the same multiverse. Episode 3 of TRY has Jawas. Right down to an unintelligible Conlang. In the English dub of the first movie, the Demon Joyrock introduces himself as "Joyrock, Michigan J." (for reference, it strongly resembles a frog). Later, as Lina unleashes the Dragon Slave on him he says "Sufferin' Succotash" (complete with lisp) as he realises just what he was about to get hit with. In episode 14 of the original anime series, Lina and Gourry are lured by the smell of freshly cooked chicken prepared by a bounty hunter whose disguise looked an awful lot like◊ a certain fast-food mascot... Pokota is apparently a Pokémon parody, but he looks more like a Digimon (namely Terriermon). In Evolution-R, the relationship between Amelia and Nama/Naga brings to mind Fullmetal Alchemist. Sherra, the second general of Dynast Grausherra, in the Slayers novels looks like Ranma's female form, from Ranma ½, this probably isn't a coincidence since Rui Araizumi also drew Ranma Hentai Doujinshi. One two-episode arc in TRY has a virtually identical plot to the Silly Symphony "Music Land," even to the point of musical Theme Naming for the two feuding kingdoms.

Eris in the original series tries to kill Lina in revenge for killing Rezo, the man she loved. Technically, Rezo was killed by Shabranigdo, who had been possessing him up until then, and emerged when he was summoned (Rezo not knowing the demon was sealed inside of him). Then Lina killed Shabranigdo. So maybe Lina sort of killed Rezo, From a Certain Point of View.

According to Amelia in Slayers: The Hourglass of Falces, their mother made it a tradition that the women of the royal family "are expected to wear a sort of dress that evokes a 'bondage' image when they reach a certain age." Therefore, she abandoned her regulation pants for a very-mini-skirt, so she would be used to that sort of exposure when the time came. Word of God states that Naga found her Iconic Outfit in their mother's closet after her funeral.

Beyond the Impossible: The magic of the series is theurgic magic (meaning it draws from faith in Gods or Demons). Martina uses a curse, on raw willpower, drawing from the energy of a spirit that doesn't exist, since she made it up. Granted, it isn't nearly as impressive as the magic others but that she can use this at all, even for minor curses or dowsing, is insane. For the long explaination, click the note note  Curses are a form of Black Magic (drawing from the Demons/Monsters, per Word of God and in several forms of media), so technically, Martina is drawing power from the Mazoku and thinks that it's from the spirit she made up. However, considering her magic is like "any random Mazoku that will listen to me" and it goes off without a hitch. Not even knowing who you're calling upon, and still managing a spell is still impressive.

Aloof Big Sister: Luna Inverse hasn't even actually appeared in the series, yet just the implication of her is enough to strike mortal terror in Lina. In all fairness, she brought it on herself. Lina is capable of defeating gods, and even summoning the creator of all things. Yet when a servant of the gods comes looking for someone to save the world, they contact Luna first. Think about that for a moment.

Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Happens several times, but the most notable case actually occurs in the novels, in which Luke goes batshit crazy when his partner Milina is poisoned and denied of any medical care, thus having her die. The destruction of the shrines in the area he, Lina, and Gourry are in at the time is extreme, and it allows the fragment of Shabranigdo in his soul to awaken in the next novel.

Cerebus Syndrome
 Slayers / int_cfdb9e17
comment
Cerebus Syndrome: By roughly the eighteenth episode of all of the anime seasons, the battles suddenly get more violent, with the plot reaching its height and bloodier battles creating a rather scary twist. The most jarring example may be by the 20th episode and beyond of NEXT, when, after nearly three episodes of hilarious slapstick, a mazoku nearly kills Amelia, Zelgadis is severely wounded (for the first time) protecting Amelia from the Mazoku Lord Gaav, and Gourry is kidnapped and brainwashed to kill Lina and the others.

No Periods, Period
 Slayers / int_d0bf8a6d
comment
No Periods, Period: Averted: Lina loses her magic powers for a brief period in Season 1, Episode 4, being able to only conjure a weak light spell. Gourry asks her whether it's "that time of the month", because the same thing happened to a fortuneteller he once knew. Used afterwards, as in 5 TV seasons, and a dozen movies and OVAs, it hasn't come up again, ever. The first novel has a scene where the conversation is basically the same, but we get to see Lina fuming at him because she thinks it's a sign that he's cannier than he lets on, and is actively mocking her. In a later scene a villain catches on, and Lina in the narration rages, "Do I have a big sign on my forehead that says, 'I'm on my period. Let's discuss'?!" In the second volume of Super Explosive Demon Story Slayers, the scene goes exactly as in the anime. The subject is mentioned briefly in the third volume, where Zelgadis, after capturing Lina, wonders why her spells were so weak... "Oh, I know! You're in THESE days!"

comment
The series as a whole began as a self-aware parody of High Fantasy and various Tabletop RPG tropes, albeit with a dogma of its own - the novels and manga, for example, poke fun at various stereotypes, like greasy, dumb bandits, and the anime broke the fourth wall quite a bit. As Cerebus Syndrome kicked in, moreso in the anime, the self-awareness angle was dropped, and the fourth wall was no longer addressed.

Hoist by His Own Petard: The Hellmaster's plan goes exactly as he wishes, except for the fact that he does not fully understand the nature of Lina's magic spell that is supposed to destroy the world. So when Lina is taken over by the Lord of Nightmares, the Hellmaster fails to recognize the Lord of Nightmare in Lina and attacks her. The Lord of Nightmare responds by destroying Hellmaster utterly, saving the world in the process.

Our Dragons Are Different: For starters, there seem to be at least two different general species of dragon; those which are basically giant monsters, and those which are capable of human-like intelligence, such as Golden Dragons, Ancient Dragons, and Black Dragons — what makes it more confusing is that there are also Black Dragons which seem to be just beasts, one of which appears in the first anime episode. There are also Sea Serpent-like Sea and Lake Dragons as well, with the latter being known for incredibly delicious food that can be made from their flesh.

Soul Jar: In NEXT, the sorcerer Halcyform makes a pledge to the Mazoku (Monster Race) which makes him unkillable while the pledge stone is intact. Taken literally in Revolution and Evolution-R — Rezo's getting another sequel by having his soul in an actual jar. Also from Evolution-R, Naga got her soul literally trapped in a jar at some point while adventuring solo, then it somehow got stuck in a suit of armour and became "Nama". An episode of TRY has a ghost ship captained by the spirit of Captain Jarlov, a drowned pottery fanatic whose spirit has been sealed inside a jar until someone breaks the curse keeping him from going to the afterlife. Mazoku in a pot in Slayers Premium.

Ship Tease
 Slayers / int_dcb9c541
comment
Ship Tease: At the end of NEXT and Slayers Premium. In the former, Gourry chases Lina, possessed by the Lord of Nightmares, into a dimension beyond his own and begs for Lina back, the two kissing and then being sent back to their world. When they wake up, neither of them seems to remember in the slightest what happened. In the latter, after being placed under the Octopese Curse, Gourry tells Lina "I love you" at several points — but Octopese is basically saying lots of random words that have an entirely different meaning for octopi ("flatchested", for example, is an expression of great dismay). When things clear up, Lina asks Gourry what "I love you" means in Octopese. "I'm broke, so you'll have to pay for the hotel." This revelation causes Lina to explode, angrily chase Gourry across the beach and beat him senseless. Filia and Xellos are positively rife with this, mostly in the form of Belligerent Sexual Tension topped with the fact that they're from the god and demon races respectively. They've actually become one of the most popular One True Pairings in the show. Zelgadis and Amelia have a good deal of chemistry and moments together, especially in NEXT. In the final credits of TRY, it is left ambiguous whether they confessed anything to each other, as Zelgadis is seen with a reminder of Amelia: one of her characteristic bracelets. Meanwhile, she is shown looking through the window and thinking, clearly not devoted to her duties. Though most of the teasing is near - gone by Revolution (leaving aside the fact that Zelgadis has become Amelia´s bodyguard and that they spend a lot of time together), the manga counterpart of Evolution - R has some of the most important evidence of feelings for this ship. Xellos is well known for frequently hitting on Lina throughout anime and manga. In novels she even asked him if he was hitting on her, though he didn't answer it. His song "Butbutbut" also has suggestive lyrics about somebody who is a gambler, loves delicious food and whose life is always adventurous.

Continuity Snarl: In the plane chart featured in the ending of Revolution, the spot on the hierarchy representing Dark Star Dugradigdu is unblemished, despite the fact that he was destroyed in TRY; it seems to be a Discontinuity Nod due to the fact that Kanzaka has officially proclaimed he does not like or consider canon the events of ''TRY'', except for the fact that the opening Evolution-R acknowledges Valgaav, the final eyecatch for the series (one of them serving as the page image) features characters from all the seasons, including TRY, the army of Saillune has cannons made by Jillas (both the character and the technology is from the Outer World), and Gourry having lost the Sword of Light and needing a replacement only makes sense if TRY happened.

Same season above: Amelia has a brief one when Gaav gives her a Hannibal Lecture about her feeble notions of justice; he then proceeds to brutally wound her. Milgazia is able to heal her, but the screen of death comes back when Gaav tries to attack her again and the normally Nigh-Invulnerable Zelgadis is severely wounded for the first time protecting her from his blade. Pure horror for her and the viewers.

Holy Magic: The polar opposite of Black Magic, drawing from the Shinzoku.

comment
Art Evolution: It's obvious there would be some of this, considering that the first anime season aired in 1995 and the most recent came out in 2009, but even watching the third season (TRY) and going back to the first is pretty jarring. Gourry and Lina's character designs in particular have changed quite a bit over the years, to the point that Lina's hair has even changed color from reddish-brown to bright red over time. This also occurs in the original novels' artwork. Older drawings of the characters and the first five novels or so are much more detailed in regards to the characters' clothing and the backgrounds, and the eyes and faces of the females are very rounded. Later novels and art overall are less detailed, the eyes (such as Lina's, Gourry's, and Amelia's) are sharper, and faces are a bit more deformed. Gourry in particular looks much, much different in the early years of the franchise, and in the final novel he almost looks like a different person. It's also worth nothing that, when the covers of the novels were re-drawn, Rui Araizumi drew Zelgadis a bit more in the likeness of his anime design, even making his skin blue (originally in the novels, his skin is greenish). And the art of the ''Super Explosive Demon Story'' manga starts off similar to the novels (highly detailed, fluid poses, rounded figures) and deteriorates overtime (stiff poses, no conservation of detail, etc.).

He Who Must Not Be Seen
 Slayers / int_e52a0cac

He Who Must Not Be Seen: Luna Inverse and the remaining three Mazoku lords — Zelas Metallium, Deep Sea Dolphin, and Grausherra — have yet to appear in the anime. Zelas and Dolphin appear in person in the novels, but there's yet to be any decent graphical depiction of Dynast Grausherra; however, Grausherra did play a major role in the second arc of the novels. Zelas Metallium's ass has had a couple of cameos in the series, however, and her beast form (an armored, anthropomorphic wolf with wings) appears in one of the games for the Super Famicom. Dolphin's beast form is still unknown. And Luna gets cameos in a couple of the opening songs and Eye Catches. It's even Lampshaded in the opening of TRY, when she has a little arrow saying "Sorry! opening only" pointing at her. On the gods' side of things, between Ciefeed's four guardians, Earthlord Rangort has made absolutely no appearances in any part of the franchise. Aqualord Ragradia and Firelord Vrabrazard have been mentioned in passing and share importance in the anime and novels (Ragradia made the Claire Bible, and Filia served Vrabrazard), but otherwise do not appear, and Airlord Valwin only appears in the Knight of the Aqualord manga. It is implied (if not flat-out stated) that "Auntie Aqua" is actually Aqualord Ragardia, or at least what's left of the god. Therefore being the only one of the gods that makes any sort of actual "appearance" in the anime.

Fight for the Last Bite
 Slayers / int_e5a6f1e1
comment
Fight for the Last Bite: The first episode of NEXT has Gourry and Lina literally Fork Fencing at super speed over the last bits of food on the table. Neither of them end up getting it, as a fight breaks out in the tavern and their table is knocked over. This is justified two-fold: First, both of them are notorious Big Eaters. Second, the party has a tradition where the person who eats the least has to pick up the tab.

Flanderization
 Slayers / int_e5e6640b
comment
Flanderization: Most of the characters have suffered from a little of it over the years: Lina's vindictiveness and temper have been played up to the point that she's on a hair trigger (although it has to be granted that Pokota really does push all the wrong buttons with her) whereas in the first ever episode a comment about her bust only elicited a scowl. Nowadays, Gourry tends to act like such an Idiot Savant that you wonder how on earth he puts his armor on in the morning or remembers who Lina is (as opposed to the fairly competent, if rather tactless and sometimes absent-minded, swordsman we see in the first episode) - and if it's at all possible the English dubs take it even further. This is finally somewhat reversed come Evolution-R, where he appears to have been given back shades of his former competency. Amelia was flanderized from the novels to the anime in general; her justice-loving ways were more of a quirk in the novels, but in the anime, they became a defining trait. By the end of Revolution, her flaunting is toned down. Xellos comes off as much more brutal and unnerving in the novels. In the anime, his lighthearted trickster personality is played up and Lina finds him more annoying than anything.

Groin Attack: In Episode 6 of NEXT, Martina had placed a curse on Lina, in which any pain she inflicts on others is magnified and directed back at her. Naturally, she ends up kicking Gourry in the groin after he had accidentally grabbed her breasts (courtesy of Xellos) and made a remark about how small they are and...well, Hilarity Ensues.

Unbuilt Trope: Both older and current critics of the show argue that Amelia is a Trope Codifier of the Moe character archetype, alongside Rei Ayanami of Neon Genesis Evangelion; Amelia has the energetic and innocent aspects of the character, complete with a short yet bodacious body, whereas Rei has the more demure and shy aspects (ironically, Rei was meant to be a Creepy Child).

On the gods' side of things, between Ciefeed's four guardians, Earthlord Rangort has made absolutely no appearances in any part of the franchise. Aqualord Ragradia and Firelord Vrabrazard have been mentioned in passing and share importance in the anime and novels (Ragradia made the Claire Bible, and Filia served Vrabrazard), but otherwise do not appear, and Airlord Valwin only appears in the Knight of the Aqualord manga.

Evil Plan: The entirety of the Knight of the Aqua Lord manga is an extremely intricate (but not unreasonable) scenario planned by Hureika. Put as simply as possible: getting Deep Sea Dolphin to lead an army against the gods specifically for the purpose of driving Lina to obtain the Wind Lord's power to use against it, thus destabilizing Lyos's power allowing her to take control, in effect becoming a Mazoku with the power of the gods. And it worked. Chessmaster, indeed.

Enemy Civil War
 Slayers / int_f52ae5d8
comment
Enemy Civil War: Chaos Dragon vs. Hellmaster is the most obvious example. It's not like Gaav just allied with mortals, while Phibrizzo plainly wants The End of the World as We Know It. It also seems to be the main reason behind the actions of Xellos. The minor one happens at the end of the second arc of the novels. Luke-Shabranigdo wants to face Lina and Gourry (the two people who can possibly kill him) while another part of Shabranigdo who is imprisoned does not wish to see that (and would have Luke-Shabranigdo free him). This causes the Mazoku to divide into two factions.

Cool Big Sis: Averted with Luna Inverse who scares Lina more than anything else in the world, but played straight with Martina who unknowingly looks after the child form of Hellmaster Phibrizzo while Lina and the others fight Gaav. Also averted with Naga, who is actually Amelia's sister; her time with the group as "Nama" proves it so. Also, when they did actually meet (in a radio drama taking place after Slayers Premium, Naga disguised herself in front of Amelia and claimed she was a friend of Lina's.

Our Werewolves Are Different
 Slayers / int_f8b3fa5d
comment
Our Werewolves Are Different: In the OAV "Explosion Array", werewolves can take on the forms of either humans or humanoid wolves, whenever they want. In the first season, Dilgear is a werewolf/troll hybrid; he never changes out of his (green-furred) wolfman form and he can regenerate his wounds to a certain degree. In fact, canonically, his last words aren't an idle boast; he really does come back to life in the non-anime continuities and becomes "Spot", Luna Inverse's pet — the only hint of this in the anime is an eyecatch showing her walking him in TRY.

Continuity Lock-Out
 Slayers / int_f97be86e
comment
Continuity Lockout: The belated Revolution and Evolution-R seasons of the anime attempted to avoid this by conveniently not mentioning the fact that the four leads had defeated an incarnation of Zanaffar before. It would've worked, had it not been for the fact that both seasons played this painfully straight in the first place - absolutely no prior establishment of what had happened before both seasons - and the end result was most of the viewers being those who had seen the first three seasons from eleven years back. Along with the issue with Zanaffar, there is also the fact that why Lina and Gourry are seeking a new sword (and the importance of the Sword of Light), and they also don't mention directly that Zelgadis and Rezo are related by blood, getting rid of some of the depth that Zelgadis' emotional turmoil against Rezo. This is also a massive problem with the Slayers Special/Smash novels. There are over fifty of those versus the fifteen "main" novels. Mind you, those fifty are supposed to serve as a prequel to the fifteen, and they're still going, whereas the last of the main books came out in 2000. It also doesn't help that both series began around the same time, in the early 90's.
