* AllHailTheGreatGodMickey: The Templars and the Voice of the Tree appear to worship [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Muir John Muir]], a major proponent for the preservation of American forests in the early 19th Century. A book by Muirs is found among Het Masteen's possessions after [[spoiler:he is apparently killed by the Shrike.]] The Templar's devotion to Muir vaguely resembles that of Literature/BraveNewWorld's adulation of Henry Ford as a god-figure in the future.

* SwissArmyGun: The multipurpose FORCE assault rifle. A [[FrickinLaserBeams laser-shooting]] [[SecondaryFire flechette-grenade-launching]] DisintegratorRay [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot particle cannon]] [[{{Troperiffic}} sniper rifle]]. It noted that the only thing it was ''not'' designed to do is cook the troops food...but with its energy output set to its lowest setting, it could probably do that too.

* ProfaneLastWords: At the end of ''The Fall Of Hyperion'', when the PortalNetwork is destroyed, one rich woman is stuck on a skyscraper a few kilometers high. When she (misunderstanding the instructions of the people attempting to rescue her) turns off the force field windows, she gets blown out. The fall took four minutes, and the rescuers claimed she followed the trope all the way through.

** To be fair, some of these are [[JustifiedTrope justified]] as being self-selected. For example Mars as home to the Palestinians is explicitly mentioned as their second stage of refugeedom, while many other planets were expressly established with some religious or ideological agenda e.g. Maui-Covenant (environmentalist Hawaiians playing nice with dolphins), Hebron (a ReplacementGoldfish for Israel), [=MadredeDios=] (Latin American Catholic pioneers), Asquith (Brits, to the point of keeping UsefulNotes/TheHouseOfWindsor on the throne), and Madhya (a Hindu haven).
