* BetterToDieThanBeKilled: [[spoiler: The humans and San 'Shyuum resisting the Forerunner siege of Charum Hakkor during the Forerunner-human war kill themselves rather than surrender. [[spoiler: This mass suicide could also be seen as the last act of defiance to make sure the secrets to combat the Flood die with them.]]

* BetterToDieThanBeKilled: [[spoiler: The humans and San 'Shyuum resisting the Forerunner siege of Charum Hakkor during the Forerunner-human war kill themselves rather than surrender. Anyone familiar with Halo can see their perspective though: who wouldn't chose death over being sent back to the Flood?]]
** [[spoiler:At the time, they'd pushed the Flood back so it was not much a threat to them. What they feared were the inevitable punishments to the defeated foes of the Forerunners. The prospects of watching their once mighty empire dismantled, the children devolved clearly made death vastly preferable.]]

* HumansAreBastards: Pretty much how the Forerunners view the humans by the events of ''Cryptum'', and for a reason. The ancient humans conquered several Forerunner worlds, though this was an act of desperation as the humans were on the run from [[spoiler:the Flood]] that ravaged many of the worlds on the other side of their empire. Many of the Forerunner worlds that humanity destroyed were also [[spoiler:infected by the Flood. Humanity was trying to stop it.]]

** The Forerunners also get hit with this. [[spoiler:The Flood are actually the Precursors who transformed themselves into powder, and later regenerated and mutated into the Flood, and they are out for vengeance against the Forerunners.]]

** ''Silentium'' confirms that the Precursors [[spoiler:believed humanity to be worthy of inheriting the Mantle over the Forerunners. In other words, humans had achieved the potential the Precursors had long sought. Of course, their thoughts on this have likely changed since their defeat by the Forerunners.]]

** A particularly big one is in the very end: [[spoiler:"We meet again, young one. I am the last of those who gave you breath and shape and form, millions of years ago. I am the last of those your kind rose up against and ruthlessly destroyed. I am the last Precursor. And our answer is at hand."]]
