* Punchclock Villians: The Officials are predictably evil given the setting, but appear not to care about some disobedience. For instance, when Cassia crushes her red pill, the official looks at the ground and doesn't bother to check her hands. There are a number of other instances where they are effectively lax to an alarming degree (to the point of NiceJobFixingItVillian).

** In terms of skills, it is mentioned that some people know how to grow crops, to harvest, and cook food. But even in terms of simple thing like carrots or onions, nobody knows how to do everything, meaning they can't feed themselves.

* TroubledButCute: Ky has a troubled past. While it isn't explicitly mentioned if he is attractive, it's pretty much implied anyway. And honestly, is there any male lead in young adult novels who ''isn't'' physically attractive?

* TheComplainerIsAlwaysWrong: Lon, a classmate of Cassia's who irritates everyone with his constant questions. Later on she actually comes to appreciate his outspoken nature.

** Also mentioned in ''Matched'' was Cassia's mother's job assignment, where she had to travel to the Farmlands to investigate some crops. She mentioned a crop called sego lilies. [[spoiler:The importance of it was revealed in ''Reached'' where it was the key ingredient to creating a cure for the mutated Plague. The best part? Sego lilies apparently have another name, called mariposa lilies, and nobody (except Anna) knew that the two seemingly different plants were actually the same. Even more awesome, Cassia's mother's knowledge of the location of the sego lily fields gave Cassia the chance to save her mother first.]]
