* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Although it is uncertain how much of this was unintentional and simply inherent undertones in the original X-COM chronology, there are lots of RuleOfSymbolism aspects packed into RLOADR, very FamilyUnfriendlyAesop style or otherwise, including Saffron now being an EldritchAbomination [[SuicideAttack suicide bomber]]. The opposition are written as some kind of odd {{Buddhism}} + [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul Internet Addiction]] + [[PoliticalIdeologies Socialism]] + SpoiledBrat + PsychopathicManchild + [[{{Islam}} Islam Fundamentalist]] + EldritchAbomination extreme TakeThat AccentuateTheNegative distortion/inaccurate associations overlap, which comes across as UnfortunateImplications, considering that the first two to four groups are generally completely harmless in real world terms, if possibly helpless in certain areas, while [[SociopathicSoldier some of the types]] [[MadDoctor of people]] set as {{Designated Hero}}es against them are very much not.

* CentralTheme: Set from the beginning chapter with [[spoiler:InuYasha]], and being that we all have to wake up and not spend our lives in a coma, which is sympathetic in theory, but the early execution reads more like: "Wake up and smell the rotting corpses, burning ozone, absolute savagery, and infinite abyss of despair and entropy!", which is probably not the best approach. It turns much better on that front though.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: The InuYasha crew in the Sengoku Jidai is revealed to be [[AllJustADream hallucinations created by Kagome and her mother]], both delusional psychics. WordOfGod is that it was just a ShoutOut that demonstrated a particularly harmless "Double A" psychic.
