* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Minor characters are sometimes derived from real people. "Herman Strumm" is a parody of HowardStern, and TV anchors "Bauer" and "Cussick" are obviously based on Matt Lauer and Katie Couric.

* SpoiledSweet: For a cab driver, Miki sure has a lot of nice things and lives in an affluent suburb. Turns out her mom married someone well-off and it's stepdad who pays off damages she incurs on her taxi and he lets her max out his credit cards. That said Miki is one of the nicest people in the comic.

* TheDreaded: For the Elephantmen, Yvette was this.



* FriendToAllLivingThings: Sahara has compassion for all living things, including Elephantmen and their nemesis Yvette. This despite her mother dying from birthing a Transgenic, her father Serengheti passing her around as a sex toy to his men, and later her getting circumsised while she was living in a podunk village in Central Africa.



* HeroicAlbino: Vanity Case was born an albino, but her case wasn't too severe and she had her eyes surgically altered to be blue rather than their original colour.



* MindControlDevice: Since it wasn't guaranteed that their upbringing would make them into vicious but loyal sociopaths, Mappo had each Elephantman implanted with a tiny robot that alters their brain chemistry to force them to do Mappo's bidding.



* ReallyGetsAround: Miki is a player and ended up getting pregnant with some Asian man she met while she was with Hip Flask. She later goes to get the embryo isolated.

She also had another boy-toy on the side after this. More recently she started seeing Mr. Apostrophe just because Flask missed a date with her, while he was investigating a murder case.

Added DiffLines:

Added DiffLines:

* SpannerInTheWorks: Nikken would have successfully made all the Elephantmen into monsters, but his assistant (who currently goes by Claude Bernard) felt that for the Transgenics to be better than humans, they needed moral guidance and so as a personal experiment he took aside a few of the Transgenics, including Hip Flask, and read to them and encouraged them to think and imagine.

* TheImmune: Elephantmen had been developed to be highly resistant to poison and completely immune to disease. This lets them operate in FCN contaminated Europe.



* ThePlague: The FEV virus wiped out almost all of Europe leading only thousands of survivors. This left Europe ripe for invasion by the Central African Alliance and China. Turns out FEV is an artificial plague made by China.

* StalkerWithATestTube: The FEV virus turns people green and makes them sprout deadly mushrooms, for Miki all it did was give her a slight fever and a runny nose. When Miki got pregnant, she had the embryo removed and disposed of because it was infected with FEV. The biotech company that does embryo removal actually didn't dispose it and instead kept in suspended animation due to interest in Miki's FEV resistance and her relationship with an Elephantman.

* ConnectedAllAlong: Hip Flask has actually met Miki before, when Miki's mom was a refugee fleeing France with an infant Miki, Ebon killed Miki's great grandfather and took his sword. Hip Flask discovered Miki and her mom but told the other Elephantmen that it was a cat, thus sparing their lives.



* InseriesNickname: No one ever calls Hiromi Kiyoko that. Instead she's Miki to everyone.

* InseriesNickname: No one ever calls Hiromi Kiyoko that. Instead she's Miki to everyone. Played with for Vanity Case, her name was actually Bianca when she was a child but was given the nickname Vanity because there was no mirror she didn't love herself in. But when her mom and her ended up in protective custody, Bianca was renamed Vanity.

* Really700YearsOld: Agent Vanity Case looks like she's in her early-twenties, but she was born in 2143 and the timeline of post-war Elephantmen is 2259, making her 116 years old.

* CruelAndUnusualDeath: The mothers of the Elephantmen, in a variant of DeathByChildbirth. Basically, Nikken kidnapped them, implanted them with hybrid embryos, placed them -- naked -- in nightmarish robotic contraptions, waited until their bellies were practically bursting from the sheer size of the baby, then cut them open and tossed their bodies in a mass grave.
