* YouFightLikeACow: Human pilots are taught to insult one of renowned Drac philosophers [[IShallTauntYou to taunt cold-blooded enemy pilots into more rash actions]]. Drac pilots are [[BatmanGambit taught]] that [[spoiler:''Mickey Mouse'']] was a renowned human philosopher, so they answer accordingly. It's not hard to guess which one incapacitates better.

* XanatosGambit: One of the main messages of Talman (Drac "Bible") is "look what your true goal is, then start looking for the ways to reach it" [[hottip:*:yeah, it's Buddhist "[[http://www.google.com/search?q=%2BBuddha+%2Bwounded+%2Barrow+%2B%22who+shot%22+%2Bpull look for things that really matter, don't be distracted by trifles]]" cranked {{up to eleven}}]]. {{Realpolitik}} is just one pattern in a tapestry for them. No wonder that in this society the renowned teachers of Talma are given a wide berth, the way AsskickingEqualsAuthority works in more primitive cultures. They lead powerful clans, and even when one is disgraced and sent to PenalColony, the convoying soldier doesn't want to contradict him. But then, it turned out that even ''Dracs'' were duped and [[UnwittingPawn used by other schemers.]]

* DeadManSwitch: When cornering [[spoiler:people more forward-looking than even Dracs]], it's good to have a Deadman Fleet Command. "Blow me up and your ''planet'' will be blown up".
