* ColorBlindConfusion: [[UpliftedAnimal Hyperdog]] eventually reveals that he's color blind, which means that he's been able to see through the patterns on the skin of his partner [[ArtificialHuman Girl One]] (who was created by a couple of horny fanboys so she has to be naked all the time but ''does'' have a nudity taboo and uses the patterns to give her some modesty) and when she finds out [[AccidentalPervert he's been effectively seeing her naked this whole time]] she decks him. He tells her he's not attracted to human women as a way to try and diffuse the situation, though we later learn he was lying about this when he enters a relationship with one.

** Issue #8 features a conversation between two characters who are dying following a traffic accident (which was neither of their faults). Kapela is a phlegmatic alien who believes that everything that happens forms part of the Great Game; Mr Nebula is an ordinary joe who is taking the whole thing much less calmly. At one point, Mr Nebula bursts out into a spate of symbol swearing, the actual meaning of which is immediately lampshaded:
--->'''Mr Nebula:''' It's not a game! It's not a £$%&ing game! It was our £$%&ing lives, man!\\
'''Kapela:''' Yes. Yes, indeed, it was. And £$%&ing is a glorious and noble thing, for thence all higher life commences... and you and I, my friend, I fear will not be £$%&ing any more.

** Later versions of [[spoiler: the Girl series]] have [[spoiler: the same genetically enforced nudity compulsion, but better or worse luck hiding it, gaining acceptance, etc. Girl 54 is readily accepted back in the force and retains the same quirks; Girl Two's nudity was quickly picked up on by the public at large -- she was [[NearRapeExperience harassed by criminals]] until she quit the force; an unnamed Girl was running around with the villains during one arc, her skin solid black except for a star pattern -- hiding nothing.]]

* UpliftedAnimal: Most prominent is Sgt. Kemlo Caesar, also known as Hyperdog, who is a Doberman with standard human intelligence and one of the main characters. Notably, he is not anthropomorphized; he wears a rig to appear humanoid (and get the advantage of hands), but he's physically a normal dog outside of it. A few other uplifted animals appear through the series; one criminal defense attorney is an uplifted shark.

* WhatMeasureIsANonSuper: Dealt with in the prequel book ''"The Forty-Niners"'', having won WorldWarII, the government relocates all supers to Neopolis. Top Ten officers seem non-plussed by this trope, none of the super powered cops nor their non-powered colleagues feel that they're at all incapable of dealing with their duty (though Duane does relish the chance to get a [[RuleOfCool rocket powered flying saddle]].)

** Mainly against robots (who prefer to be called Ferro-Americans, and don't like being called "[[FantasticSlurs clickers]]"). In ''The Forty-Niners'', there's a robot ghetto neighborhood, and [[spoiler:one of the characters is a robot passing as human by telling people his exoskeleton is PoweredArmor]].
