I'm actually kinda surprised I haven't seen more of them. Then again, not really.

Hayate gets everyone eventually.

Come one, can't a child kiss her mother without you perving it up? Great art, they look cute.

Pseudo-incest is a tag. That said, familial relationships are mostly a social construct, and grafting those constructs onto unusual relationships like this are always going to get odd results. Like, the typical mother/daughter relationship is defined by nurturing, teaching, and extreme power imbalance, most of which isn't really a thing here.

...except they kinda are? Hayate literally built Reinforce Zwei and raised her from what the Wolkenritter describe as "like a baby". As for power imbalance, it's a little odd, but Hayate certainly outranks Rein and has more magical power than her. The fact that she has military rank suggests that she's legally considered an independent person and not a possession (Raising Heart and Bardiche don't get ranks!), and it's certainly implied by Agito that she's not dependent for her existence on Hayate's mana (like a familiar would be) but the whole situation is tricky.
Hayate certainly sometimes acts like she thinks she's Rein's mother, but then she seems to think she's Signum's mom, so who knows.

Late reply: Hayate made Reinforce Zwei from her and Reinforce Eins' Linker Cores. She's a literal "Magical Baby."
