* FeministFantasy: Probably one of the most tolerant and evenhanded comics around. The female characters are smart, capable, funny, goofy, distinctive, well-rounded, and memorable, in a diverse and amusing manner reminiscent of ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'' or ''Manga/UruseiYatsura'', and avoid the bland and forced "[[GirlsNeedRoleModels Strong Female Characters]]" pitfalls. Fred makes a continuous effort to represent different body types and give female readers evenhanded "beefcake" treatment.

* EvilCannotComprehendGood: Dreadwing, TheSociopath that he is, interprets good intentions as having secretly selfish motives. Fore example, when he challenged his childhood friend and lover, T'Mat, for rule of dragon-kind, she was forced to fight him either to the death or his surrender. Since he wouldn't back down, she had to [[FakingTheDead make it look like she killed him]], but actually nursed him back to health later. He assumed that he was going to be MadeASlave by her and fled while still injured.

* HotSkittyOnWailordAction: The giant women of Monster Isle live alongside men who are much smaller (though still larger than human standard). Their "equipment" has evolved in a way that allows for breeding. Should one of the women mate with an outside male, she could end up crushing him (although Portia claims that, while harder, it's not impossible).

* NoSelfBuffs: Genies in this 'verse cannot use their wish-granting powers at their own behest, only for the desireas of others. They originally just granted each other's wishes, but Madrid's attempts to find a way to overcome this limitation caused many to be MadeASlave.

* CantKillYouStillNeedYou: For all the nasty things Dreadwing does despite being under Ancient Gina's thumb and under threat of her punishment, she tends to let him off lightly because she still needs him for his half of the Infinity Engine, Negative Infinity, [[spoiler:as part of her plan to stop the Umbra and save all reality]]. This prevents her from smiting him despite obviously wanting to do so ''very much''.

* ThePowerOfHate:
** Serpentus uses his magic to rip the hatred others have for him from their auras and form weapons out of it.
** Dreadwing channeled eons of his hatred for Ancient Gina into a stasis dimension to call upon later in his planned rebellion.

* MoralMyopia: One of the main themes of the comic is that revenge is wrong and only serves to make everyone more miserable.

The second time Dreadwing would have gained the power to kill them all if wasn't for an unexpected AssimilationBackfire.]]

* BreakoutVillain: The dragon Dreadwing was originally just a one-shot villain for the pilot story, which ended with him as a skeleton. ''Now'', he's the ManBehindTheMan for many of the plotlines past and present, and is dueling with Ancient Gina across most of time with virtually all the other characters as pawns.
