* LethalJokeCharacter: The Winslow may be an adorable fuzzy lizard with the exhibited intelligence of a bucket of dead fish, but there are a disconcerting number of people, religions and races willing to commit ''genocide'' just to get their hands/claws/pseudopods on it. (Even though doing so will just set the target sights on them instead.)

* {{Badass}}:
** Cat-ninja Martin in ''The Gallimaufry'', who boldly plunges into the tunnels where two Security members of the Human Delegation were not only nearly killed but a '''Law Machine''' was utterly destroyed(...!); he actually completes the mission that the others couldn't (and which he assigned himself, as a true Badass does), and emerges fully scathed, battered and shaken: "[[IronicEcho Am I...am I not a thing of...of mist and shadow?]]" -- but alive, which under the circumstances is quite badass enough.
** The [[spoiler:Tax Notifier]] at the beginning of ''The Gallimaufry''. He puts Buck through his paces harder than anyone else has so far in the series, making Buck work hard just to [[spoiler:keep from hearing that he's been officially summoned to perform his tax service to the government of New Hong Kong]]. [[{{Determinator}} The man does not give up]] and Buck isn't in the clear until he's getting on a ship to depart the planet. [[spoiler: And then the Notifier gets on the boarding announcement system to deliver the summons to Buck in front of the whole ship.]]



** Thuxians are the "capitalist aliens," considering even betrayal and attempted assassination forgivable as long as it was just business; they predate [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration the Ferengi]] by [[OlderThanTheyThink several years]]. With a sideline in {{Badass}}ery: a Ferengi assassin is a [[http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/The_Magnificent_Ferengi_%28episode%29 punchline]]; a Thuxian ''bartender'' is more than capable of fending off an assault by a pissed-off HiveMind.

* GambitPileUp: [[spoiler: The Station Chief's oppression of the Beemahs, which led to the Beemahs interfering in the Pog's plans to infect humanity with a will-sapping virus, which was messed up by the humans giving up the Winslow voluntarily. All of this was because of a very minor gambit of one reporter suggesting Fractal Bombs to locate the (indestructable) Winslow.]]

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Yelling "Move aside and you will not be hurt! I am only after the fat man!" on the streets of New Hong Kong is liable to get you [[http://www.airshipentertainment.com/buckcomic.php?date=20070714 gunned down by everyone in earshot]].

** Humans are basically the [[TrademarkFavoriteFood popsicle-makers to other species]], but otherwise share the general hat of the rambunctious, noisy young species that bursts on the scene and is liable to burn out (or get burned out) sometime soon. The older species have seen this a lot already. On the other hand, the SufficientlyAdvancedAliens find humans to be "[[TheUnfrozenCavemanLawyer people who get things done]]", and useful for a number of jobs they wouldn't entrust to members of any other race -- such as [[spoiler:safeguarding or investigating the Winslow]].

* AllCrimesAreEqual: {{Deconstructed}} with the Law Machines, NighInvulnerable robots which summarily cart off lawbreakers to an unknown fate like VideoGame/UltimaOnline guards. Surprisingly, this isn't as bad as it sounds. Not only are the laws they enforce still democratically voted on, they are ''enforced'' equally - that is, they are applied to government employees to the exact same extent as citizens. Thus, after the Laws summarily wiped out a PeoplesRepublicOfTyranny, most humans became quite tolerant (and even ''admiring'') of them. The rest simply move to worlds where fewer of the Laws have been passed.

** [[spoiler:Humans just think it's an idiot, which is why the Prime Mover was willing to entrust it to them. Beemahs share that opinion, which is why humanity was allowed to pass it on to them.]]

* MacGuffin: The Winslow, so very much -- he could have been an inert lump of [[MadeOfIndestructium indestructium]] for all the difference it would have made to the plot. Given a great big LampshadeHanging, with much discussion of the fact that although everybody knows he's very important, there's no general agreement on exactly ''why''.
