* ObligatoryWarCrimeScene: When the salafist terrorists play dirty, their supporting [[StrawManPolitician leftists]] get the following misfortunes: strangled, stalked, bombed and shot, and in one occasion, fed FEET FIRST into a wood chipper and broadcasted as a terrorist execution. The Legion's Pashtun allies enslave the surviving families of the Salafists and even sell some of them to Asian sex cartels.

* ObligatoryWarCrimeScene : Oh by the bucketful. Not only do the Salafists raid for slaves and food for 100 years in a nonstop Jihad, only to be beaten back by Tauran leaders, but their current counterparts are far more brazen than their real life brethren. There is always a mention of a Tauran slavegirl sullenly following a Mujahed. The Salafists almost always ensure female captives are [[MadeASlave made a slave]] or worse. Then there is the global slave trade which doesn't seem to be forbidden, indeed, Yithrab (Which is Saudi Arabia Expy) has slave markets in the open even as it sells oil to the modern world. Then there is Carrera, who fights fire with fire, or rather gamma bursts. The first war crime inflicted on the Legion gets a flamethrower/artillery massacre as a response. When the salafist terrorists play dirty, their supporting [[StrawManPolitician leftists]] get the following misfortunes: strangled, stalked, bombed and shot, and in one occasion, fed FEET FIRST into a wood chipper and broadcasted as a terrorist execution. The Legion's Pashtun allies enslave the surviving families of the Salafists and even sell some of them to Asian sex cartels. (which even made this hardened troper flinch)

* EagleLand: Arguably, Balboa. It's originally Panama [[RecycledInSpace in space]], but by the sixth book it's a mixture of this and the society from ''Literature/StarshipTroopers''.

* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler:Legate Pigna.]]Pigna]] betrays the Legion out of personal pique, when yelled at by Carrera when he was raving about how the Legion became bureaucratized.



* JapaneseChristian: Kurita, from the FantasyCounterpart of Japan in the series, Yamato. Lampshaded by Fosa, who finds it odd that a good Catholic believes that ships and swords have souls.



* UsefulNotes/TheLawsAndCustomsOfWar: Given Kratman is both a former military officer and is trained to be a lawyer, these come up fairly frequently, often addressing misconceptions regarding the actual laws of war. Those who follow them, like Sada and the Salah al-Din Brigade, get treated decently, in accordance with the Laws of War. Those who don't, like the Salafi Ikhwan... don't.



* NoOneCouldSurviveThat: Cruz sets up an ambush on a guerilla camp with claymore mines and machine guns. When the smoke clears, he's surprised to find himself face to face with a surrendering guerrilla, the sole survivor.

* TakeThat: ''' ''So'' ''' many. Everything progressive from Bill Clinton and Michael Moore to leftist Internet trolls who have annoyed Kratman on message boards gets not-at-all-affectionately parodied, tarred and feathered and driven out of town. Figuratively speaking, of course. At least most of the time...
