* AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence: The Krassio have became a race of [[TheOmnipotent Omnipotents]] after the Xhodocto have trascended its status. One race has ascended to a higher plane existence taking the place of another one who has ascended to an even [[UpToEleven HIGHER]] plane of existence.

** The end of the Great Cyrannus War is one of the most famous examples of the bad guy winning. Having set up either side so whoever won, Tyrómairon would take over.



** Continuing on with the Star Wars theme, Tyrómairon himself gave a similar speech to that of Emperor Palaptine at the end of their respective wars. [[RevengeOfTheSith Announcing the foundation of a galactic empire of unrivalled extent]].

** Larnus Vontarion devised a battle tactic that involved warp-hopping close to your oponent's ship and unleashing a full broadside. Not too dissimilar to a maneuvre devised by Jean-Luc Picard of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' during his career.

** WordOfGod states that due to opposing essences, Kalcedia would be unable to sleep with Hachiman when he's older due to her being a case of BadPowersGoodPeople and him being a GodOfGood. The resulting interaction would be like matter and antimatter.

* SpaceColdWar: While briefly allied against the Cyrannian Imperial State during the New Cyrandia Wars, the Galactic Empire of Cyrannus and the New Cyrannian Republic became locked in a decade-spanning cold war, with both sides working to undermine the other for control of the Cyrannus Galaxy and the mantle of galactic governance. The Cyrannian Cold War expands beyond Cyrannus, with civilisations such as the Draconid Imperium opening up their own front against the Empire in Andromeda. In the fraught astropolitical climate however, both the Republic and the Empire's interactions with other powers are often carried out with an eye to the opposing side.
* SpaceElves: Many examples exist, most fit in either Type I or II and combine with EverythingIsBetterWithDinosaurs. Due to creative tendancies, a number tend to border on the freakishly-tall side. Prominent examples include:

** If the Iron Fist wasn't fancy enough with its walls of nanongineered solid gold, the interior decorators of the RASC Worldfather's Grace (read: The personal starship of Uriel Ultanos) are comparable to combining Versailles '''and''' Buckingham Palace.

Simple: [[OmnicidalManiac Slaughtering every single living thing in the universe]] in the most sadistic and [[LudicrousGibs gruesome way possible.]]
** The Tahar Empire hs reached the conclusion that [[ReligionIsWrong any and all forms of religion spur nothing but ignorance, stupidity, intolerance and will always hold society back]]. Their plan to rectify all this is to aggressively abolish the concept of religion with the belief that their outlook on the universe is the only right one.

** While most KG individuals are atheist, Tahar combine HollywoodAtheist with InsufferableGenius. They see any mention of the metaphysical as an affront to the laws of the universe and if they don't have an explaination for an observation, said observation is a mistake. This reaches egregous levels when the people they're trying ot disprove are [[HigherTechSpecies centuries ahead of them]].
** The Komorian Theocratic Empire is a clear mockery of Western Christian doctrine, complete with an obliviousness to the contradition of an all-loving deity who punishes all non-believers by casting them into hell.
** The Hakonians are transsapients with the opinion that machines are superor to organic life to the point where they consider nature (as in plants and animals) being obsolete in favour of a machine age. Their love of robotics is topped off by their preference for unit designations over more typical names.

** The Dagorian Mercenarium is profit motive taken to the extreme, where being broke is considered a perfectly good reason for being ''murdered'' and where the most powerful man in the mercenarium is the richest.
** Before being retconned into an "expand or die" society, the Tyrek were an imperialist and expansionist power whos population get complacent if their empire is not expanding though conquest fast enough for their liking. To the point where the Tyrek Emperor would declare war just for the prospect of new territory to appease his people for a bit.

It is suggested this kind of thing is par the course for Draconid aristocracy.



* UnnecessarilyLargeVessel: As mentioned in MileLongShip, most empires field several-kilometre-long warships it's become an arms race as to who can build the biggest.

Added DiffLines:

* FantasticRacism: Quite a considerable amount due to differing cultures and a whole lot of CulturalPosturing.
** The Cyrannian Empire mixes this with CulturalPosturing by telling its citizens that Cyrannus is a bastion of order and civilisation while the rest of the universe is overrun with uneducated barbarians. But they pale compared to the AbsoluteXenophobe Basileus society. Where a single Basileus might expect you to find it an honour to be ''standing before them.''
** Humanity gets a very rough time of this. Not just because they are seen as naive [[PunyEarthlings puny]] [[HumansAreBastards argumentative]] and [[HumansAreMorons irrational]], some blame humanity as a ''whole'' for reawakening the forces of the Xhodocto. Some species act supremely baffled how humanity managed to gain hyperpower status in under 700 years.
** Many Zazane look down on anyone weaker than they are. Not that hard when the average Zazane is three metres tall, built like a house, and raised in a way that encourages that kind of physique.
** To the Niaka like Xeron and Xerkea, all Wranploer are power-hungry jerks. No exception.
** The crown-prince of FantasticRacism so far is High King Rambert. Whether it's believing all the Heer Stekeveel would run to the Hutter Kingdom given half the chance or believing that Xonexi is a spiraling pit of anarchy, division and bloodshed. Barring a few exceptions, Rambert seems almost blissfully unaware of how offensive he is being.
** During Tzhrhokia, Kies' extreme paranoia painted all Draconis as barbaric slaver imperialists.

* MegaCity: Numerous examples in all flavours, as many of the larger empires support very large urbanised populatios. Minos'Drakon - one of the most prominent examples - has a population comparable to that of the United States in its metropolitan area alone. And unlike other examples (like Paris or Araveene City) it doesn't span an entire continent.

** The most common type of Dogmatism so far is Fundamentalism: Cogsangui, Ernai, Minga, Devourer's Chosen, Mahanayans, and, of course, Radeons. Second most common type is Conquistadorism: DCP, Junction, Zazane, and most of the Grox empires aren't the only examples. Communism is present as well with, partially, Zazane and Radeons. Nazism so far is the rarest hat on SporeWiki, the only major example being Basileus.

** As a homage to {{Franchise/StarWars}}, the Cyrannus Galaxy has similar Raygun Gothic overtones.
** Invoked by the Draconid Imeprium's older vessels, as much like modern aviation philosophy the Draconis more frequently update the interior than they do the exterior as time goes by. As such despite looking identical on the outside, a newly-refurbished cruiser can easily outclass the same model fitted with equipment that was cutting-edge seventy years ago.
** Inverted by the French, who use tanks, small arms and starfighters that look straight from them modern day but are just as effective in combat as anything the top Gigaquadrant powers can design.


Added DiffLines:

* AliensSpeakingEnglish: Justified with either TranslatorMicrobes or simply knowing the language of the other party.


Added DiffLines:

* EternalEnglish: A precursor civilization can be around for millions of years. Whether a site is six million years old or sixty million years old, a character with a fair understanding of that language can decipher whatever inscription they find.
** Averted with Dracid, as both Common and High variants are prone to linguistic drift. It just takes a lot longer for the High variant to change considerably.


Added DiffLines:

* Omniglot: Most Kicath are fluent in five or six foreign languages, mostly out of preference as Kicathian is horrendously complicated.


Added DiffLines:

* RagnarokProofing: Precursor ruins can be millions of years old but remain explorable. Perhaps justified in that they are often built by SufficientlyAdvancedAliens.
** While it is unspecified how long it's been abandoned, many of the systems in the Draconid Imperium's ElaborateUndergroundBase in the Alps still work. Their computers remained intact enough for a French expedition to download thousands of years' worth of data. Potentially justified as the Imperium uses {{DataCrystal Data Crystals}} for its computers instead of silicon microchips.


Added DiffLines:

* SufficientlyAdvancedBambooTechnology: The Draconid Imperium has this in spades: They have (among other things) AI-capable CPUs that look like gemtones, power armour more fitting for a knight errant than a SpaceMarine, palaces and bunkers alike with designs straight from a 17th century architectural catalogue and shield generators set into jewelry. yet have for a long time been a HigherTechSpecies.
** Many {{BenevolentPrecursors Atlantica}} artifacts appear to be made from stone or otherwise have a Mayincatec look to them.

* AlwaysChaoticEvil: The demons of Inferno, the Grox, the Neraida Gigamatrix, the Mali'Nar, the Corruptus, the Xeranbha, and those are just a few of them.



* {{Antimatter}}: Used sometimes as weapons, as in original {{Spore}}.

* AndIMustScream: The fate of the leader of the Wranploer, General Volim, who was trapped in [[EldritchLocation Chaos]] and [[BlessedWithSuck cursed with complete immortality]], meaning he was alone, under eternal torture from [[MadGod Santorakh]] and incapable of killing himself.
