* HoistByHerOwnPetard: The reason Zulenna's attempt to distract a guard and get over to Castle Wulfenbach during the mess with the Hive Engine doesn't work. Some weeks prior, Zulenna had upbraided a guard for being improperly dressed while off-duty, and said guard points out that if such a person was suddenly trying to be nice to him, in a world where Slaver Wasps are a thing, he'd have to be pretty damn stupid to fall for it, wouldn't he? If Theo and Sleipnir hadn't been present with a good wrench, he'd have had her arrested then and there.


Added DiffLines:

* LoveEpiphany: Gil gets one just after he and Agatha take down the Slaver Wasps.

* RetCon: The book changes a number of events from the webcomic in subtle ways, especially regarding Gil and Agatha.
** In the webcomic, when Agatha mentioned Dr. Vapnoople to Gil, [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20040412 Gil got threatening,]] implying that she was in serious danger just for knowing about what happened. In the book, Gil is simply confused as to why she's worried.
** In the webcomic, when [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20040716 Agatha refused Gil's advances, he got violent.]] In the book, it's emphasized that [[{{Adorkable}} he has no idea what to say to get her to accept the engagement]], and he only grabbed Agatha because they were in a dangerous situation and needed to escape.

* UncertainDoom: The last time Bill and Barry were seen together by anyone was over a decade before the story starts, fighting some madboy. The last Adam and Lilith heard from Barry, it was from a vague and garbled note shoved under their door while they were out.

* OutsideContextVillain: The Other, when it first arrived. This is how it got its name, because it killed all of the other people that it could have possibly been.

* HellIsThatSound: In-Universe, the Slaver Wasps start singing when the Hive Engines start going. According to Barry Heterodyne, it's incredibly unpleasant to hear.

* TheFriendNobodyLikes: Zulenna, on account of being arrogant and haughty, and being the only one on-board Castle Wulfenbach who gives a damn about the pecking order. She and Agatha don't get along, not helping when one of her comments when they first meet touches a nerve with Agatha.

* CoversAlwaysLie: The US version of the cover attempts to depict the scene where Agatha and Gil battle the slaver-wasps on board the airship. Except Gil has been replaced with Krosp, and the wasps with.. giant toothy mechanical snakes. Or tentacle-claws. Or something.

* FriendlessBackground: Agatha, in part due to her general social awkwardness, and also because Professor Beetle tended to have ''words'' with anyone who tried to approach her.
