** Yuma is formally introduced when Alana goes to work for the Circuit, but she's seen as a portrait in Heist's home several issues earlier.

Added DiffLines:

* ShellShockedVeteran: The other [[WarIsHell major theme]] of the series. Marko and Alana's defection were both motivated by the trauma they'd experienced on the battlefield, and this provides much of Prince Robot's FreudianExcuse. Even ''[[BadassAdorable Ghus]]'' says he did things he's not proud of in the ForeverWar.

** Izabel mentions her former girlfriend a few times, and saves the family on several occasions with her shapeshifting ghost powers.

* ADateWithRosiePalms: Frequently, and in fully, uncensored glory. Prince Robot does this once, as does the bull dragon. [[{{Squick}} With his mouth.]]



* InterspeciesRomance: Marko and Alana most prominently, but also numerous other couples, almost-couples, and ex-couples throughout the series: The Will and The Stalk, Heist and Yuma, The Will and Gwendolyn, Klara and Heist...

* InterspeciesRomance: A central theme of the series, and the higher-ups [[MalignedMixedMarriage ain't happy about it.]] Marko and Alana most prominently, but also numerous other couples, almost-couples, and ex-couples throughout the series: The Will and The Stalk, Heist and Yuma, The Will and Gwendolyn, Klara and Heist...Heist...
** Heist's [[ShowWithinAShow novel]] tells the story of a romance between a rock monster and the quarry owner's daughter. [[spoiler: He wrote it as political propaganda, and Alana's adoration of the novel brought her and Marko together.]]



* LazyDragon:When Gwendolyn, Sophia, and Lying Cat travel to the planet Demimonde in search of dragon spunk ([[ItMakesSenseInContext long story]]), they find the aforementioned last male dragon not just constantly lounging, butů auto-fellating.

* CastOfSnowflakes: The extremely wide variety of character designs even among the humanoid species ensures that all the characters look completely unique, even without going into some of the ''[[OurMonstersAreWeird weirder]]'' aliens in the series. Even the Robots, who all have TVs for heads, manage to look unique.

* RuleOfDrama: The horned humanoids and winged humanoids are locked in endless proxy war in the first place because their homeworlds are orbiting each other. Neither faction can afford to destroy the other's world because they'd go spinning into space. A reader can think of plenty of ways to ''sterilize'' a world without destroying it, but then there'd be no story.
