* [[BizarreAlienBiology Bizarre Human Biology]]: The humans of Earth 5 have a mating season in spring like many animals. Their world is a much nicer place than Earth 2, although lagging behind by about 50 years, possibly indicating that the lack of constant obsession with sex results in humans being more harmonious with one another. Despite their level of development roughly equivalent to TheFifties, they are close to developing space travel.

* TechnologyMarchesOn: An in-universe example. When Kirill meets a functional who owns a hotel in Veroz, she explains that she was notified of her new function by a telegram brought by a postman-functional. Since Kirill was notified of the same thing by a text message, the functionals use whatever technology is available at the time to notify a new functional of his or her function.

'''Rough Draft''' (''Черновик'', Chernovik) is a science fiction duology written by the popular Russian sci-fi and fantasy writer SergeyLukyanenko. The duology consists of novels ''Rough Draft'' and ''Final Draft'', with the second novel picking up mere hours after the first. Kirill Maximov, the protagonist of the novel, is a college droupout living in Moscow and working as a computer salesman. One day he comes home and discovers that someone else is living in his apartment. Even his dog belongs to someone else and doesn't recognize him. He realizes that he's beeing slowly ErasedFromExistence. People he knew, even his best friend, no longer recognize him. His parents claim they've never had a son. Even people on the street appear to have trouble noticing Kirill. All forms of identification (e.g. passport, birth certificate) turn to dust. A few days later, he gets a text message with an address. Arriving there, he finds a water tower with a door. Upon entering it, he finds out that the tower (possibly BiggerOnTheInside) is a multi-story apartment, which becomes his new home. Very soon he finds out that he is no longer a {{Muggle}} but a "[[DifferentlyPoweredIndividual functional]]", a [[CripplingOverspecialization highly-specialized]] super-human individual with abilities that allow the functional to do a particular job much better than a normal human. Kirill's job/function is a Customs Officer. His tower is a WarpZone between parallel worlds with each PortalDoor on the ground floor leading to another reality. As part of his duties, he is to police and monitor the travels of other functionals and humans who know about them to other worlds, preventing forbidden items from being taken and charging tariffs, which is the source of his income. His abilities include instant knowledge of any illegal items on the persons of the travelers and the tariffs for them. He also has SuperStrength, SuperSpeed, and a HealingFactor (which also provides immortality). [[SuddenlyAlwaysKnewThat I Know Kung Fu]] is in full effect. Like any other functional, inside his function (i.e. the tower) he's nigh-indestructible. There are, however, limitations to any functional. All functionals have a "leash" of sourts that connects them to their function. The farther they get from their function, the weaker their functional abilities become. If they go far enough, they become almost human. The "leash" is about 6-7 miles. He soon realizes that being a functional is not what it appears. A function is little more than a fancy cage. Anyone trying to change the status quo gets the attention of a policeman-functional and may be killed.

* ErasedFromExistence: Anyone chosen to be a functional ends up being erased from his or her former life. No one remembers the person, and any evidence of his or her identity turns to dust.

Most of the force of the explosion went to a world populated by BigCreepyCrawlies, although a tiny fraction ended up [[spoiler:forming a giant hill in Arkan's Moscow which was blamed on a meteorite]].

* SuperSpeed: At least two types of functionals are able to move inhumanly fast: customs officers, and policemen. This is a part of their function. However, Arkan's military has developed a pill of some sort that temporarily grants this ability to {{Muggle}} soldiers.

* IKnowKungFu: Certain functionals have knowledge of advanced martial arts implanted into their minds and instinctively know how to fight. These functionals also usually have SuperSpeed and SuperStrength to aid them. Two such functional types are customs officers and policemen, with the latter being the stronger.
