* ActuallyPrettyFunny: When being questioned by the NSA the agent mentioned that Georgeís parents must have been Beatles fans due to his name. George replied that they were actually Star Wars fans and his middle was almost ''Han'' causing one of the guards to bit back a snort.

* OurZombiesAreDifferent: Seemingly averted. The zombies in the ''Ex-Heroes'' universe are direct homages to the George Romero universe. [[spoiler: Later, of course, they show they are shown to be products of a disastrous attempt at reanimation.]]

* FromBadToWorse: It's bad enough that Legion can possess multiple zombies, thus letting them attack the Mount with greater efficiency and tactics than before. Then he gets the idea to start putting helmets on them, preventing head-shots. And ''then'' he finds the guns and ammo from the National Guard depot...
** Cairax returning to the mortal world via [[spoiler: possessing the Regenerator]] is also described as this by Max.



** And in the epilogue, [[spoiler: he pretends to embrace his "destiny as an archangel" and zooms off into the heavens - only to come rocketing back down just as St. George has time to let the loss sink in, gleefully admitting that he was just kidding.]]



* IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight: Averted, Regenerator was long gone before St. George even got there.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: Stealth rivals Rushuna Tendo
* INeverSaidItWasPoison: Played with it was Maxwell claiming to not know something that clued Stealth into the fact that he was lying.
* NanoMachines: [[spoiler: Madelyn Sorenson. Originally, they were only supposed to repair her wounds until her body could catch up, but after being killed by zombi...[[NotUsingTheZWord uhh]]...[[InsistentTerminology Exes]] they had to replace basically everything. End result, she's still Madelyn, but she's also a shitton of nanites.]]

* ImprobableAimingSkills: Stealth rivals Rushuna Tendo
Tendo with her ability to put bullets in the heads of zombies with her pistols. Captain Freedom ponders that he's known ''snipers'' who would be envious of her accuracy.

lying. [[spoiler: Specifically, he'd been everywhere in the Mount as a ghost...so how did he ''not'' know about Regenerator?]]

* PistolWhipping: Stealth does this to Max
* RewardedAsATraitorDeserves: Played with Cairax Murrain never performed his part of the deal to begin with

to:

* PistolWhipping: Stealth does this to Max
Max.
* RewardedAsATraitorDeserves: Played with - Cairax Murrain never performed [[spoiler: completely subsumed Regenerator's soul upon claiming his part of body, but it's heavily implied that Regenerator had crossed the deal DespairEventHorizon and ''wanted'' this to begin withhappen]].



* ShutUpHannibal: Subverted, Cairax to Captain Freedom by slamming him into the ground and flinging him away

* TooDumbToLive: The After Death movement believe that souls still reside within the Exís despite the fact that it was that very mentality that caused the virus to spread so fast in the first place. One member actually walked straight up to an ex she knew thinking he wouldn't hurt her
