* AxeCrazy: Scylla. ''Breach Zone'' eventually reveals that [[spoiler: early versions of Limbic Dampener caused mental degradation, and she was pretty much mainlining that at six times the regular dosage to hide her magic. It ultimately was responsible for her snapping when she was arrested and killing hundreds of people]].

** Before she became [[spoiler: Scylla]], [[spoiler: Grace Lyons]] was a perfectly benign person who [[spoiler: used her wealth to fund many humanitarian projects and research, and was planning on using Limbic Dampener help mankind.]] And she also [[spoiler: had the power of Negramancy]].
* TheBeastmaster: "Whispering," an illegal application of terramancy, allows for control of animals. This control is also very extreme, overriding the animal's natural instincts and thoughts and turning them into remote-controlled killing machines. Taken to horrifying levels in ''Breach Zone'', where a group of goblin Terramancers [[spoiler: unleash ''all'' of the rats and pigeons in New York City on the human defenders]].

* {{Biomancy}}: Physiomancers can heal themselves or others with a touch or even at range. They can also do things like boost their musculature and bone density to Liefeldian degrees and manifest huge bone spikes (as seen in ''Gemini Cell'') or warp themselves into a BlobMonster as seen in ''Control Point''.

** In addition, the mere existence of FOB Frontier is a violation of the War Powers Resolution, which says that the President must inform Congress within 48 hours of a foreign military deployment and must withdraw them within ninety days without a Congressional authorization of military support. [[spoiler: It's no surprise that the President is really, ''really'' unhappy with the idea of FOB Frontier becoming public and is willing to let everyone there die to keep it a secret.]]

Added DiffLines:

* MildlyMilitary: The SOC has a very... ''lax'' definition of the idea of military discipline. SOC troops are allowed to drink on base and in combat zones, their officers will frequently hesitate to immediately follow orders, they show a lack of respect for upper echelons of command, and one unfortunate fellow tried to sleep with one of their on-base prisoners (who happened to be Scylla. It ended ''poorly''). This is, of course, just minor compared with the nastier things they get up to, including abusing indigenous goblin workers, Fitzy's drunken assaults on his own subordinates, and outright torture and execution of prisoners of war.

* ArtisticLicenseLaw: The [=McGauer-Linden=] Act, which allows the government to imprison or conscript Latents into military service, is ''extremely'' unconstitutional. In US law, no Congressional act or executive order can violate the Constitution, and the [=McGrauer-Linden=] is among the most extreme imaginable violations of due process, which is protect by the Fifth Amendment.

* LetNoCrisisGoToWaste: '''''Repeatedly and blatantly stated.''''' The Awakening brought chaos to the world. ''Every'' government in the world has increased their authority to PoliceState levels to "protect" the {{Muggles}}.

* NotQuiteTheRightThing: Yes, Scylla was imprisoned wrongfully and unjustly, and she was about to face worse from the SOC, but by the time of the book she had gone completely insane. When Britton freed her, the first thing she started doing was killing people, including innocent soldiers. There wasn't a ''good'' option in this case, but Britton definitely chose the ''wrong'' one. [[spoiler: It worked out in his favor in the end, but he hadn't planned that.]]

* MilitaryCoup: [[spoiler: In the climax of ''Breach Zone'', Harlequin is forced to agree to turn the SOC against the US government and force them to agree to grant rights to Latents, in exchange for Britton finally agreeing to lead Shadow Coven and the Selfer militias against Scylla.]]
