- The Queen's Blade anime is the only media to show bare breasts without censoring (though the original televised airings had censoring added on some channels). All other media, such as the game books or manga, stop short of showing the girls in such a degree of undress.
- While the major elements of the plot are the same, the anime takes a number of liberties with the progression of the story compared to the manga and illustrated novels.
