* GoodPeopleHaveGoodSex: Despite the series' reputation for raunchiness, the vast vast majority of the sex--at least among the protagonists--is more tame than a lot of stuff you could see on the {{Playboy}} channel. The bad guys, meanwhile, tend to have penchants for rape, snuff, pedophilia, or BDSM of a level that leaves the floor awash in blood.

* DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale: Anita frequently uses the ardeur to force men to sleep with her-London's screaming and begging for her to stop did not sound like he wanted to have sex with her. Of course, every time Anita uses the ardeur to do that it is always treated like a normal, consensual sexual encounter. It is, however, questionable if all of these encounters have ''Anita's'' consent either, as the ardeur can act as a metaphysical date rape drug on all parties involved.

Added DiffLines:

* FantasticLegalWeirdness: Anita's day job as an [[AnimateDead animator]] often involves raising the dead to settle estate matters. Zombies can be raised to settle things like disputes over which version of a will is accurate or not, but they make terrible witnesses in court cases, since they can really only respond to the animator who raised them, and the animator has to ask very specific questions, thus opening to objections for leading the witness. Zombies are also useless when they've been murdered, as a murdered zombie will, no matter how powerful the animator who raised them is, beeline straight for their murderer and attempt to kill them. Might be useful for the police to track down the killer, but not exactly admissible evidence in a court of law (to say nothing of potential countersuits for siccing a mad zombie on someone without due process).

*** Anita does seem to have a SelectiveSquick going on; she comments that she ''might'' let Asher hook up with another guy if it doesn't "freak [her] out too much."

* DoubleStandard: Anita can have sex with just about anyone to slake the ardeur, but none of the men can have sex with each other, only Anita. This is later changed due to Anita's [[SuddenlySexuality sudden bisexual]] feelings and she enjoys watching all the guys in her harem get it on with each other while she watches and has one of them servicing her as well.

* AllTheGoodMenAreGay: Anita brings this up at the end of ''Circus of the Damned'', and her version of the issue.
-->''"Most women complain that there are no single, straight men left. I'd just like to meet one who's human."''


Added DiffLines:

* HoistByHisOwnPetard: If Oliver hadn't instructed Alejandro to turn Anita into a human servant, she would not have been immune to Oliver's mind control powers, and she wouldn't have been able to kill them both.

Added DiffLines:

* MilitaryMage: People with psychic or magic abilities (in this universe, acknowledged as the same, the only difference is if you need a ritual to use it) in the military, and also the police force, are called "wizards". They are normal soldiers or cops, but just have a 'special skill', the same as 'snipers' are normal soldiers, they just have sniper training that other soldiers don't. There isn't much information as to what they do in the military, but their primary purpose seems to be sensing enemy magic users or preternatural creatures and what they are doing with their magic, since magic in this universe is much more subtle than others (hurling lightning bolts is not a thing that most magic users can do). Some also have special talents to help them sense what others have experienced or if someone is telling the truth, which is helpful in investigation. Wizards are also expected to know more about preternatural creatures and magic users so they are the go-to person in their unit for information on how to deal with them.
