* ShaggyDogStory: Like the other BasLag cycle books, the events of the story don't have much effect on New Crobozon's status quo.

* AIIsACrapshoot: The main reason the government of New Crobuzon outlawed all but the most minor and supervised use of constructs. The constructs were gaining self-awareness, and were summarily destroyed once the government found out. Golems, were then used to supplant constructs.

* AntiClimax: an InUniverse example. [[spoiler: Judah's last attempt to save the Council only succeeds in robbing them and their supporters (and the readers) of the apotheosis that they seek.]]

* BiTheWay: Judah Low. May overlap with SingleTargetSexuality, at least where Ann-Hari is concerned as she's the only person he seems to show deep romantic affection for...[[HoYay except maybe]] [[BodyHorror Uzman]], [[HoYay if that kiss was any indication.]]

Published in 2004, ''Iron Council'' is the latest and perhaps last book of ChinaMieville's [[Literature/BasLagCycle Bas-Lag Cycle]]. ''Iron Council'' is held to be the most [[{{Anvilicious}} politically-charged]] [[AuthorTract installment]] in the series, which all things considered, is somewhat inevitable given the turbulent political climate that the book takes place in.

* Deus ex Machina: [[spoiler: Qurabin is a character who can trade bits of his life experience and memories for information from a mysterious source. Without his intervention, the protagonists would never find the Iron Council (they had no solid leads until then came across Qurabin), and would never have learned the truth about Spiral Jacobs, who was moments from wiping New Crobuzon off the map. ]]
