* 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).

Added DiffLines:

* FantasticReligiousWeirdness: A very heavy theme throughout the series. In the first two books, religions have gone through some Changes. The Roman Catholic Church for example, is almost dead, and have made Jesuit philosopher Teilhard de Chardin a saint, integrating his teachings heavily into the Catechism. Judaism, With Isreal destroyed, has "lost it's significance". And while many communities exist, the whole practice has become [[ReplacementGoldfish like a theme park]], according to Sol at least. A syncretic religion called "Zen Gnosticism, [[BeenThereShapedHistory created in part by Martin Silenus]], has evolved out of what was Christianity and Buddhism, and is apparently the most followed faith in the Hegemony. And Islam has become something called "High Islam".

** ''Listen! There will be no more offerings, neither child nor parent. There will be no more sacrifices for anyone but our fellow human. The time of obedience and atonement has passed. That's all! Now either leave us alone or join us as a father, rather than receiver of sacrifices. You have the choice of Abraham!''
