Added DiffLines:

* FantasyContraception: In ''Wizard'', Gaea tries to exert her control over Cirocco by making her saliva the only substance able to take Titanide eggs to the next level of conception. This leads to her image involving all sorts of [[DysfunctionJunction drunken dysfunction.]]

* OurAngelsAreDifferent: Nothing supernatural about them; "angel" is simply the term applied to several different species of WingedHumanoid.

Added DiffLines:

* SanitySlippage: Gaea suffered this long ago but it becomes more and more obvious through the trilogy. By ''Demon'' she's not even hiding it anymore.

*** It was however quite clear that Gaea wasn't above modifying her creations after the event of creation, remember she completely changed their sexual reproduction between the first and 2nd books to cut down on overpopulation[[hottip:*:and morally enslave Cirocco]] after the war was stopped.

* GeniusLoci: Gaea[[spoiler:, and she's neither a nice nor a sane one]]. The twelve "ring minds" at the bottom ends of Gaea's spokes could also qualify.

* TheSymbiote: The Blimps rely on small, ape-like creatures living in their stomachs to "preprocess" the leaves and branches the Blimps eat. The Blimps actually digest the droppings from the ape creatures after the apes eat the foliage.

** Exactly ''half'' human, in some ways, as lampshaded by Gabby in ''Titan''.
--> '''Gabby''': "I've heard of parallel evolution, but from the waist up?"
** And half human in other ways in ''Wizard'', after [[spoiler: it's learned that humans can breed with Titanides, and that one of the Titanides is actually Cirocco's grandson.]]



* InterspeciesRomance: Several examples with centaurs and humans, and at least one with an angel and a human.

* InterspeciesRomance: Several examples (both sexual and non-sexual) with centaurs Titanides and humans, and at least one with an angel and a human.



* OurAngelsAreDifferent: Nothing supernatural about them; "angel" is simply the term applied to any of several different species of WingedHumanoid.
* OurCentaursAreDifferent: Titanides have an incredible variety of possible appearances (smooth-skinned, short-furred, long-furred, ''any'' imaginable color and pattern). Above the waist, they all appear as [[FanService sexy human women, complete with boobies]]. They're also all hermaphrodites (although they identify themselves as either male or female) with three sets of genitalia (the frontal set determines gender identity, along with whether or not they can [[TrulySingleParent reproduce via parthenogenesis]]). [[spoiler: And they can interbreed with humans.]]

* TheGoodGuysAlwaysWin: Discussed in ''Demon''. Because Gaea is something of a sucker for cheesy classic Hollywood movies, she has internalized their cliches -- and by this point [[spoiler:she's decidedly playing the villain]]. The tricky part is is that she by and large expects the "good guys" to play by the movie rules as well...
