** The machine saying that man is a virus is also slightly hypocritical, considering what the antagonist is.

* HumansAreCthulhu- The alien HiveMind considers the unnetworked primitive creatures who run entirely on wetware and enslave non-sentient machines to be both disgusting and incomprehensibly strange. After subduing the abominations it found itself surrounded by upon arrival, its "body" (the ship) has once again been invaded by more of the creatures, which are all trying to kill it. Hence, it sees [[KillAllHumans its actions]] as an attempt to save the universe from an [[OmnicidalManiac omnicidal]] plague of intelligent {{Puppeteer Parasite}}s.
