* HeroicSelfDeprecation: Ted [[spoiler: literally sacrifices everything to save Benny, Ellen, Gorrister and Nimdok from the wrath of AM, but he still feels guilty MercyKill ing them and is unable to see the magnitude of his heroism. Justified, as not only did he kill all of his remaining friends, he also has nobody left to tell him whether what he did was right or not.]]

* CureYourGays: Played with. Benny was once gay; now, though, he does it with Ellen on a regular basis. However, AM also horrifically twisted his mind and body.

However, Benny; rather than being cured of homosexuality, AM also horrifically twisted his mind has given him heterosexuality the way radiation gives you cancer. Presumably the existence of the trope itself, and body.the perception of homosexuality being a problem that needs solving, is part of what makes Benny's condition a form of torture.

Added DiffLines:

* NeverendingTerror: This is the main source of NightmareFuel for the story. AM, a MasterComputer, has wiped out all of humanity except for five people, whom he immediately invokes CompleteImmortality upon so that he can spend every waking second tormenting their bodies and minds in increasingly cruel and horrific ways. The five protagonists are still worse off than the billions of humans that died because [[FateWorseThanDeath death would actually be a RELIEF]] for them.

* SadlyMythtaken: When the characters meet a giant bird, Ted calls it in his mind, among mythological giant birds, a "Hwaragelmir"... even though in Nordic mythology, this was the name of a ''chasm'' and not a giant bird. This mistake occured because Ellison asked a friend for the name of a mythological bird and didn't bother to check if it was correct or not.
