* InformedAttribute: The Sphere and its kind are said to be much more powerful than the Aliens, to the point of being TheDreaded. When the Sphere arrives in the solar system, its ship gets wrecked by humans in a single hit (whereas the Alien ships are borderline ''immune'' to the same weapons) and when it later talks about the planet where the galactic-strong LaResistance is training, it mentions how important it is to keep its location a secret, otherwise the Aliens will likely destroy it.

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: General Gray takes his responsibility to defend his country very seriously [[ConsummateProfessional without being paranoid or overly hawkish]]. He shoots down SECDEF Nimzicki's initial suggestion to blast the mothership with nuclear warheads before it enters orbit, citing that at best it will turn ''one'' dangerous falling object into ''many'' (and he's GenreSavvy enough to recognize that provoking aliens capable of engineering such a ship is probably not the best idea). He's utterly disgusted with SECDEF and the CIA for withholding what they knew about the aliens rather than preparing any kind of defense in case they proved hostile. Even when David's Dad starts [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech ranting]] aboard Air Force One, his reaction is understandable given that some random dude is acting increasingly belligerent towards ''the President'', and even then he doesn't raise his voice.

* TheDreaded: The harvester aliens are terrified of it. The very symbol for it in their language equals fear.

to:

* TheDreaded: The harvester aliens are terrified of it. The very symbol for it in their language equals fear. This is somewhat strange considering that the Sphere isn't shown actually ''doing'' anything that would make the viewer understand why the Harvesters fear it. Unless just the fact that someone wants to hurt them is somehow enough to make them afraid, in which case the utter lack of fear for humanity on the Harvesters' part would be out of character for them.
