* BreakoutCharacter: She is one of the most recognizable characters among Burroughs' creations and starred her own spin-off ''Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris'' under the Dynamite Entertainment's brand.



* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: A race of white-skinned, blonde haired and blue-eyed people who sees themselves as superior and therefore has the right to exploit them however they sees fit. ANazyByAnyOtherName is averted however, since they were introduced decades before the Nazis came to power.



* LightIsNotGood: White Martians have served as antagonists from time to time in the books. While it is mentioned in the background Whites have joined the heroes after Issus' downfall and became integrated to Red Martian society, the number of sympathetic named characters can be counted in one hand. The Lotharians as whole are neutral (preferring to be left alone), though their leader is definitely evil.

* ANaziByAnyOtherName: Strange aversion. He's a blue-eyed, blond-haired (well, blond-wigged), white-skinned man who believes himself superior to other races and therefore has the right to exploit them however he sees fit and has a cult of followers who believe the same- but at the time ''Gods'' and ''Warlord'' were written, nobody had heard of a Nazi. OlderThanTheyThink?



* HumanityEnsues: Well, he is not necessarily "human", but he used to a construct created by Tario's mind and summoned to serve him, but eventually becomes a being of flesh and blood.
