* MeaningfulName: John DiFool. Yes, his name alludes to the fact that he's kind of a dumbass, but in [[TarotMotifs the Tarot]], [[UsefulNotes/TarotCards the Fool]] is the first of the Major Arcana, and symbolizes chaos, infinite possibility and the beginning of a journey, which are all motifs that apply to John.

* MindScrew: gradually becomes this toward the end of the original series, and pops up from time to time in the prequel and sequels.
* NonHumanSidekick: Deepo; Difool's (eventually) talking "concrete seagull".
* PettingZooPeople: Kill Wolfhead, who resemble a dog despite his name in the English translation, and a few others. The sequel and prequel reveal that they are actually genetically modified humans.

* SpiritualPredecessor: Like [[Film/{{Dune}} its inspiration]], a lot of this series' ideas ended up being reused in other works, most notably ''{{Warhammer 40000}}'' and ''Film/TheFifthElement''.

'''The Incal''' (''L'Incal'') is a sci-fi [[ComicBook comic series]] by writer Creator/AlejandroJodorowsky and artist Creator/{{Moebius}} and is the center-piece of the former's MetabaronsUniverse. The project was born out of, and recycled many concepts from, the two's failed attempt to make a film adaption of Film/{{Dune}}. Despite Jodorowsky having every major event of the comic planned out beforehand, and the series only being 6 volumes long, it took 8 years to complete.

* TarotMotifs: [[WordOfGod According to Jodorowsky]] Difool (and Deepo) is the Fool trump, Sulune is a combination of the Sun and the Moon trumps, the Emperoress is a combination of the Emperor and Empress trumps. [[MeaningfulName The names said it all really.]] The Techno-Pope is also meant to correspond with the Hierophant trump and the Technos' tower with the Tower trump. Strangely the ThemedTarotDeck based on the original series was a French-style one and thus didn't utilize the symbolism Jodorowsky based the characters on. There was however an Italian-style one based on Final Incal, but it was only available as a promotional item at Comic-con 2014.

* SufficientlyAdvancedTechnology: Some of the tech is really out there in terms of what it can achieve, like the [[AlienGeometries "interior exterior"]], a chamber that, when you enter it, you end up on the ''outside'' of a big sphere surrounded by a seemingly endless black void.

Added DiffLines:

* UpliftedAnimal: Deepo, after being [[{{touched by|Vorlons}} the Incal]], becomes intelligent, talkative and ''very'' opinionated.

John Difool is a low-ranking private investigator in the slums of the dystopian planet Terra 2014. After escaping the aftermath of a butchered job, he encounters a Borg, a member of an once imperial alien race that has now passed into myth. The Borg reveal that it had been looking for him and entrusts him with the a mystical object, the Light Incal. This naturally makes Difool the target of multiple interplanetary factions that seek to use the artifact's powers for their own goals, not the least of which include the Incal itself.
