* AmbiguouslyGay: Snout and Grakker. They share a private room and are unusually close.


Added DiffLines:

* YouAreNotReady: When Rod asks why Earth has not been asked into the League of Planets, he's told that humans are considered warlike and borderline insane by the other species of the cosmos.
** We learn in ''The Search for Snout,'' however that the League of Planets only emerged after 1000 years of war between its future member species, so that might be a bit of hypocrisy.

Added DiffLines:

* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: It's stated that Smorkus Flinders became the leader of the monsters in Dimension X simply because he was the biggest.


Added DiffLines:

* UnskilledButStrong: As noted in the second book, Smorkus Flinders' fighting skills are mediocre, simply because the other monsters named him their leader purely because of his massive size. That being said, he's big enough to literally stuff a human into his ear canal, and has the SuperStrength to match.

* BirdsOfAFeather: BKR and Smorkus Flinders are good friends and partners because they're the two most evil and vicious criminals in each other's respective dimensions.



* ForTheEvulz: Everything BKR does is for this, such as his plan to merge our dimension with Dimension X and his later plan to freeze time. Grakker notes that BKR is well aware that he would be affected just like everyone else, but as long as he can hurt people, he just doesn't care.
