* CreepyDoll: Adam buys an animatronic doll that wallows about in the deepest part of the UncannyValley. The bad guys [[ItMakesSenseInContext take the doll with them]] and find it extremely unnerving.



* InfoDump: A few examples, including Strucker giving a LectureAsExposition, and in particular a sales pitch at a [=RePet=] store explaining pretty much the entire cloning process and even clarifying how the clones can be produced so quickly.



** The first human we see who is killed and brought back to life is Johnny ''Phoenix''.

* AntiVillain: Drucker. While he's an overall {{Jerkass}} and is quite ruthless in protecting the secret that he's a clone -- understandable since ''cloning is illegal, he'd be considered legally dead, and would be killed'' -- his human cloning technology could change the face of human suffering and save many lives, and the technology is already used in-story for organ transplants and to solve depleted fish stocks. He's even lobbying aggressively to get the law against cloning changed, working within the system so that he can do things legally.

* BrainUploading: Upon death or near death, the most recent contents of your memory can be uploaded to a new clone; the upside being that you'll continue to live in one way. The catch, however, is that it ''won't'' be '''you'''. Your clone will look, think and act like you in every way, but your consciousness; your unique, individual perception of an environment, won't be transferred. In other words, ''you'll still die'' hoping that copy of you will carry out what was once ''your'' life.

* BrickJoke: Adam tells Drucker to clone himself while his previous iteration is still alive, so he can "fuck [himself]." When circumstances conspire to make this happen, Adam knocks them both out in such a way that one collapses on the other, leading him to quip that he didn't mean it literally.



* CloneByConversion: {{Zig Zagged|Trope}}. They use this trope to clone people, but they use it on "blank" clones they started growing beforehand.

* CloningBodyParts: The benefits of organ cloning are used as a plea to try to drive down the "[[TitleDrop Sixth Day]] Laws" that forbid the cloning of complete human beings. In reality, the owner of the cloning corporation [[spoiler:only wants to achieve immortality via uploading your memories into the brains of {{Expendable Clone}}s]].

** Depends on how you stand on the issue, as to whether you see it as a valid point. After all, just because you've made a copy of the person, doesn't mean the original was really "saved". Then there's the questions of whether the person would really want to cloned and who should have the right to decide on who gets cloned or not.
