* HumansAreBastards: The bulk of humanity is shown to have become this trope in both the book and movie. Due to being unable to mentally cope with being able stave off human extinction, humans have become even more horrible in their behavior.
** And even when faced with the fact that humanity stands a chance at having children again, humans are still shown to act just as horrible. This is best evidenced by the BlastOut trope example above not to mention [[spoiler:the Fishes]] and [[spoiler:Syd]] who want to exploit Kee's baby for their own personal gains.

* JustBeforeTheEnd: With no babies being born, humanity is doomed, but it will still be some time before everyone dies. The world responds by descending into nationalistic, nihlistic mayhem.

* CrapsackWorld: No babies are being born, dooming humanity to a slow but inevitable extinction. As a result, society has completely broken down, with pretty much the entire world being turned into nuclear wastelands or lawless war zones. Britain, possibly the only remaining pocket of civilization left, is a horribly authoritarian and xenophobic dystopia. Argentina, the only other nation hinted at being at least moderately stable is no better, as "Baby Diego", the youngest person in the world, is stabbed to death in Buenos Aires at the start of the film simply for ''refusing to sign an autograph''.

The situation has gotten so bad that Theo tells Japser he thinks it doesn't matter if a cure for global infertility is ever found, as the world is already beyond salvaging.

* ArtisticLicenseBiology: While the world is in trouble because no kids have been born for twenty years, extinction wouldn't take hold for at least nine more decades. Assuming people were being born right up until the day no more children appeared, this would mean that the majority of everyone born between the late-50's and the early-2000's should still be alive, with people born between 1974 and the date of infertility ranging between young adults to middle-aged people.
