* BigBad: Collectively, though there is no apparent supreme leader of the aliens in the first movie, and being a telepathic race, it's likely they have no such leader. The closest we see to an alien leader is a dock controller. It's revealed in the second movie that each invasion force has a queen, which is not seen in the first movie.

Added DiffLines:

* ConvergingStreamWeapon: The city destroyers' primary weapon. The bottom opens, bathing the target area in a blue light. Afterwards, the central spire unlocks and descends. The eight beam generators approach the spire, sending an energy charge to power the weapon. A bright beam shoots down into the target building, after which the spire fires an energy pulse that obliterates it. The beam continues firing until the devastation is well underway.

* ActionSurvivor: Survives the alien bombing by hiding in a maintenance tunnel, then uses a highway patrol truck to help other survivors get out of the city.


Added DiffLines:

* ChekhovsSkill: Being an exotic dancer might not seem like it would help during an alien invasion, but pole-dancing requires really strong legs--legs that, for example, can kick in the door to a maintenance tunnel.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: They target major cities and important military facilities such as NORAD first, and employ force fields that can ''repel nuclear explosions''.



* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Allows a fleet of humans to enter her domain and ''then'' disables their bombs, taking away the bulk of Earth's ability to resist her in the process.

* FamousLastWords: [[spoiler: [[MeaningfulEcho "There will be no peace."]]]]

to:

**Even better in the novelization: [[spoiler: Landford is taken into the Queen's ship and interrogated by the Queen herself to learn where the sphere is. Alone and facing a two-hundred foot tall alien, Landford ''still'' refuses to back down, mentally telling the Queen that humans are going to win because while she will die, others will take her place, where if the Queen dies, her entire force dies]].
* FamousLastWords: Twice! In the film, [[spoiler: [[MeaningfulEcho "There will be no peace."]]]]"]]]] In the novelization: [[spoiler:(when addressing the Queen) "I know I won't live to see it, but we're gonna beat you again, you ugly bitch!"]]


Added DiffLines:

* KilledOffScreen: [[spoiler: her death is not shown on-screen, and it's implied the aliens killed her in the bunker. In the novelization, Landford is taken to the Queen's ship to be interrogated, and while it's not shown, it's heavily implied that the Queen kills her before reaching Area 51]].
