* FateWorseThanDeath: Boma's city state has no death penalty. Instead, criminals serving life-sentences are genetically and surgically altered so that they have the bodies of humans, but the heads of animals. Not only that, but they are subjected to brainwashing and other forms of torture. The idea is so they'll regret every day what they did.



* FanDisservice: At one point in the series, [[spoiler: when Clair hides out in the slums, a couple of guys approach him and start stripping off his shirt (ostensibly because it's valuable, but [[InnocentInnuendo that's probably not the impression most fans got]]). It's more heartbreaking than anything else, considering Clair just sits there and ''takes'' it.]]
