* NestedOwnership: D'nal Cord [[IOweYouMyLife owes Roger his life]], and later acquires a life-debt of his own when he saves Pedi Caruse from pirates. Prince Roger has a good laugh at the latter, noting that D'nal's OhCrap reaction when he realizes Pedi's culture has life-debts exactly mirrored his own after he saved D'nal.

** Just about everyone has a computer implant in their brain, called a "toot", and the implant can be hacked. [[spoiler:The chain of events leading to being stranded on Marduk was from a sailor whose toot was hacked by the conspiracy.]]

* FreudianExcuse: Roger has these in spades and justifiably given the way Alexandra [[TheUnfavorite has treated him]].
* FriendlyFireproof: Played with. When the group is ambushed by a horde of natives and forced to melee, Prince Roger picks up a grenade launcher and ''fires it into the mixed group''. On the one hand, this is smarter than it sounds since the light armor marines wear will protect them from the worst the damage, and it would shred the natives. On the other hand, they could've broken the assault without it, and he cost the team needless broken bones and minor shrapnel injuries.

** A minor character is Admiral [[Film/AnimalHouse Neidermayer]]. He isn't TheNeidermeyer though, being a reasonable and competent commander.

** Several Mardukan poisons are shown to not work on humans, and vice-versa. One poison, which to Mardukans is tasteless, tastes like rotten fennel to humans. Another poison fails much, much harder-- it inspires the doc to check other native chemistry that's not food-related, which leads him to discover an effective ''dietary supplement'' for human biology, ''saving'' the lives of much of the expedition by stretching out the dwindling supplies of manufactured supplements they need to survive on the partially-indigestible Mardukan diet.

Another poison fails much, much harder-- it it's not only harmless to the humans it's meant to kill, but meditating on its failure inspires the doc to check other native on the chemistry that's not food-related, which of other inedible local species.

* HeroicBastard: The titular prince, [[OverlyLongName Roger Ramius Sergei Alexander Chiang MacClintock]], after [[TookALevelInBadass he took multiple levels of badass]]. He also develops into the other type of bastard, the literal meaning already applicable since the Empress had never married his father:
-->'''Sgt. Catrone:''' Order received and understood, and I will comply. You bastard.\\
'''Prince Roger:''' That I am. Literally and figuratively. The last bastard standing. The flag of the ''Basik's'' Own wears a bar sinister proudly.

* TheEmpath: Phaenurs, a race of centaroid-lizards whose abilities make them {{Living Lie Detector}}s. They are one of the only races never to engage in physical war or have never engaged in cannibalism.
