Added DiffLines:

* DoesNotLikeShoes: Professor Lu Fu from ''The Kindness Ray'' may be a mild case of this; he wears only open-toed sandals even in cold weather, probably implying a disdain for footwear in general.

Added DiffLines:

* BarefootSage: Downplayed; the wise Chinese professor Lu Fu from ''The Kindness Ray'' wears only light sandals even in cold weather, probably as a way to show asceticism and/or [[EccentricMentor nonconformism]].

A series It is the end of Soviet/Russian children's ScienceFiction books the 21st century and the SovietUnion has gone on to encompass the globe. There is no disease (except the flu) no shortage of anything, and no private property. SovietSuperscience has gone on unopposed to give us [[FasterThanLightTravel faster than light spaceships]], {{timetravel}}, and all manner of other wonders. However this new society faces many external problems, having to deal with "less developed" planets, SpacePirates, and aliens.

* NeverAcceptedInHisHometown; in ''War With Liliputs'', Alice reminisces on this: she is hailed as a savior on many planets, but at home she is "just a girl".

* NeverAcceptedInHisHometown; in ''War With Liliputs'', Alice reminisces on this: she is hailed as a savior on many planets, but at home she is "just a girl". Well, in some books she is a capable genetics researcher and at least respected for that, but her adventures don't seem quite as known.

* AnalogyBackfire: In ''Alice's Birthday'', Alice wants to save a planet. To give her more confidence, Gromozeka reminds her of Joan of Arc, who rescued France. Alice succeeds, but is captured in the process. While she awaits her trial she remembers that the ''actual'' Joan of Arc was executed. [[spoiler: Except she wasn't (see SparedByAdaptation below), and of course, Alice escapes.]]

* MacGuffin: Many, most notably the Mielophone from ''OneHundredYearsFromNow''. Also "the absolute fuel" (whatever it means) in ''Animation/TheMysteryOfTheThirdPlanet''.
** It's only "Whatever it means" in the cartoon. The book explains it's an extragalactic invention which will allow ships to be a hundred times as fast. Not exactly something you want SpacePirates to get their hands on - or the rest of the galaxy not to have.

* WorthlessYellowRocks:Most of the societies are moneyless. One of the stories features Alice looking for a replacement for a 1.5 kg gold nugget she took from the school's museum and lost. Since she has plenty of friends, the next day she comes to school with her dad carrying twelve times the required amount.
* [[WriteWhoYouKnow Write what you know]]: the author is a historian, so many of Alice's adventures are in Earth's past or in similar cultural settings.
