* BeneathTheMask: [[spoiler: Yoshii, Toyama, Kohakura, and Kano]] initially come across as either heroic, or at least sane, only for it to become clear that under their smiles lies some ''serious'', and ultimately deadly, psychological issues.



* {{Bishounen}}: [[StepfordSmiler Toyama]] is a less-traditional version, and arguably a [[DeconstructedTrope deconstruction]], as it's made clear clear that both [[ParentalIncest his father]] and [[SexualExtortion his boss]] [[RapeAsDrama sexually use him]] [[SoBeautifulItsACurse likely because he's such a pretty boy.]] [[spoiler: Given his [[NotSoStoic sheer glee]] in murdering Kano's forebearers, incestual abuse consequently appears to be a pretty big BerserkButton for him.]]

* DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale: There are several instances in which Doc has sex with Ichise while he's not in a position to give or withhold consent. Despite this, she's still portrayed as mostly benevolent ([[BlackAndGreyMorality by the show's standards, anyway]]).

Despite this, she's still portrayed as mostly benevolent ([[BlackAndGreyMorality by the show's standards, anyway]]). [[spoiler: Contrast with what a trio of Luxites do to Michiko, though frankly, the situation between Doc and Ichise is nowhere near as cruel or ugly.]]


Added DiffLines:

* ShowDontTell: As noted under SilenceIsGolden, there are few digressions on the parts of characters as to what their motivations are, how they feel, or why they are doing what they do. Careful attention is the only real way to look [[BeneathTheMask beneath the surface]] and see [[HiddenDepths their depths.]]

Added DiffLines:

* DarkerAndEdgier: Of the informally known "Abe Trilogy" (''Anime/SerialExperimentsLain'', and ''Anime/HaibaneRenmei'') this show is considered the darkest of the three, and it even proves grimmer than most anime on the market. Not even ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' eclipses it in terms of shear bleakness.

[[spoiler: the fact that the penultimate episode depicts how he [[UsedToBeASweetKid used to be]] helps significantly.]]

* {{Faux Affably Evil}}: Kano. Unlike [[AffablyEvil Yoshii]], Kano's politeness and formal manner of speaking contrasts with his abominable actions only emphasizes how insane he really is.


Added DiffLines:

** Many others as well, such as Onishi and Kano.

* AntiHero: The protagonists, being [[MadScientist Doc]], [[TheStoic Ichise]], [[MadOracle Ran]] and [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Onishii]] fall between this and [[AntiVillain Anti-Villains]].
** Doc and Ichise are [[NominalHero Nominal Heroes]], the former being interested in the pursuit and propagation of Texhnolyze technology, regardless of how it aids others, while the latter, while not actively out to hurt anyone, has little to no qualms about hurting people for even stopping him in the street, shows little hesitance or guilt in caving in a man's skull with his bare hand, and is attached to the people around him purely out of [[BecauseYouWereNiceToMe personal interest]] or even [[ExtremeDoormat because they asked him to]], rather than any idealism or heroism.
** Onishii and Ran are arguably either [[PragmaticHero Pragmatic]] or [[UnscrupulousHero Unscrupulous Heroes]], being implicitly or explicitly shown to perform, allow, tolerate or even manipulate some fairly nasty events and people in their effort to try to safeguard Lux from self-destruction.
* ApocalypseHow: It is vaguely presented, but the implications are that [[spoiler:the surface-dwellers of the world at least partially predicted the decline of the human species, and isolated those with greatest genetic chances of prospering, which just happen also to be those that create violent tendencies. Also isolated were predecessors of the members of the Class, who were given special privileges in Lux in return for their cooperation. It is arguable as to whether this was a better decision than their first choice to solve the problem: kill everyone.]]
