** The deadly dance of the farandolae killing the fara is [[FridgeHorror frighteningly similar]] to the sort of thing ''prions'' do - rogue protein molecules that corrupt their uncorrupted versions, turning ''them'' into prions. Eventually, the out-of-control prions end up killing their host cell and are released, to to kill other cells in the same way.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Sporos lets his own self-importance go completely to his head and joins the raging mob trashing his own mitochondria. It takes an intense, concerted effort by both Calvin and Mr. Jenkins to draw him out and encourage him to mature [[spoiler:But the effort in doing so drops Mr. Jenkins' already weak guard, allowing the Echthroi to possess him and necessitating Progo's HeroicSacrifice to salvage the victory.]]

** The "bratty" part comes in when Sporos quite contemptuously announces himself as superior breed of creature, much more akin to the cosmic cherubim then mere humans. It starts to hurt your head when you realize that to farandolae like Sporos, a human being is a galaxy unto themselves, and they are utterly dependent on their "galaxy" for their survival. [[spoiler:Calvin and Mr. Jenkins finally break through his arrogant detachment in the end and encourage him to literally grow up - but at the price of dropping their guard, [[NiceJobBreakingItHero which allows the Echthroi to possess Mr. Jenkins fully]].

* BilingualBonus: The mitochondrion that the final conflict takes place in is called Yadah (יאדאה). In Hebrew, it means "worshipping with hands outstretched" or in more modern usage, "Lifting up one's voices to sing God's praises." The name was no accident.
