* CallASmeerpARabbit: A JustifiedTrope in this case. The souls only know the native language of their host, so they use the closest Earth analogue to describe other alien races that they've conquered. Notable examples include the Bears (four-arms with double-sided hands, along with four hearts), the Dragons (gelatinous floating blobs), and the Dolphins (three sexes, each with either three, five, or seven legs).

** Not to mention the other species the souls have captured. These include gelatinous floating creatures, aliens with double-sided hands and four hearts, and multiple species of sentient plants.

* TastesLikeDiabetes: In-universe. Souls kept television around after taking over the planet, but every single pre-invasion show (save, briefly, for ''TheBradyBunch'') was booted off the air and replaced with the Souls' original programs. All of them fit this trope.

** Averted. The other host body had recently died after an attempt to remove the Soul from it failed, killing host and Soul together. Putting Wanderer into that body brought it back to life.

*** Her decision is justified. Melanie sends Wanderer her memories and emotions and shows the "wild" human colony's location ''only'' when she is sure that Wanderer cares deeply about her boyfriend and brother. Wanderer wouldn't be able to betray them, which Melanie knew, having constant connection with her mind.
*** That said, Melanie is still heavily dependent on Jared, to the extent that she only bothers trying to "talk" when he is around. He even has to pull off a subverted DamselInDistress rescue when she's not responding in Wanderer's head.



*** It's really more of a [[AlienGeometries Love Square with three sides...]]

* BlondesAreEvil: Inverted. Wanda's [[spoiler:replacement body]] is extremely blond and so girly and precious she TastesLikeDiabetes.
** Played straight in [[TheFilmOfTheBook the movie]], where the Seeker's black hair [[AdaptationDyeJob is now blonde]].

Added DiffLines:

* EasilyForgiven: Wanda is unreasonably forgiving towards Ian and a random guy who tried to kill her. The former actually becomes her ''boyfriend'' after they spend time together.
