* {{Badass}}: Kovacs, Trepp, Kadmin, [[ColonelBadass Isaac]] [[SemperFi Carrera]], Virginia Vidaura and of course [[spoiler: Quellcrist Falconer]].



* KilledOffForReal: Generally averted, as anyone who gets killed can later be resurrected. A few people, however, do end up very old-fashioned dead due to disintegration of the mind-recording chip, viral infection of the same, or a variety of other entertaining methods. Takeshi Kovacs tends to inflict Real Death on anyone who makes him mad enough, by physical destruction of the cortical stacks. He also uses it as a very effective way of showing his [[BadAss badassitude]] to people he needs to rattle into talking.

* SuperSoldier: The Envoy corps are mentally conditioned {{Badass}}es who are trained to destroy rebel governments in relatively small numbers. Ostensibly, anyone with combat training can be a super-soldier in the right sleeve.

* TrainingFromHell: Physical training is made practically irrelevant by the various chems and synthetic improvements one can have for his sleeve, but mental training is incredibly important for the Envoys. Kovacs' mental training has made him such an ''incredible'' {{badass}} that he shrugs off torture sessions that would leave any normal person scarred for life and/or insane beyond any hope of cure.

**Taken so far that the entire plot of the first book (involving a mind backup every 48 hours, which is exotic technology) would be impossible by the third, where remote backups are routinely made every second.
