* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: The Psychlos think humans are [[PunyEarthlings utterly stupid and pose no threat to them at all]]. Apparently they're too busy [[IdiotBall being dumbasses]] and not noticing them perfectly operating complex machinery.
* HumansAreMorons: Terl and his fellow Psychlos believe that the humans are too stupid to do anything on their own, so they give them some "assistance" in the form of Psychlo knowledge beams. Considering the fact that all of the Psychlos, Terl included, appear to have been issued an individual IdiotBall at birth, this arguably comes a form of unintentional HypocriticalHumor.
