* MotiveDecay: Victor Helios in Creator/DeanKoontz's Frankenstein series first desires to eliminate humanity and replace it with a masterrace of his own creation, and eventually take over the world and the universe. In the sequel series, [[spoiler: his clone who has his memories and personality now just wants to wipe out humanity and then kill himself when it is completed for some reason.]] This is explained by Koontz as the next logical step to the original motivation, even though they are two completely different things.

* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: an unusual case in ''Children of Twilight''. Mundane isn't an option, but the real question is: is it supernatural (angels, God's miracles, the Antichrist, and so on), or are all the phenomena psychic in nature?

Added DiffLines:

*RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil:Astonishingly, subverted in his Frankenstein series. Victor is depicted as a monster who viciously abuses his created "wife", which is bad enough. His clone, however, despises this as a form of weakness and promptly has himself castrated to escape such trivial temptations. Victor Immaculate, as he calls himself, has discarded his original's dream of world domination to become an OmnicidalManiac.

* LittleMissSnarker: Lelani Klonk, disabled in body but wise beyond her years. Same goes for Regina in Hideaway. Thelma Ackerson from ''Literature/{{Lightning}}'', who is twelve when we meet her, also counts. She grows up to be a standup comic.

** Laura and the Nazis carry Uzis in ''Literature/{{Lightning}}''. It's even lampshaded by the SS officers, who don't like that the guns are of Israeli design.
