* {{Hypocrite}}: Petra expresses a disdain and disgust for the human race for domesticating dogs and making pets of them... while in the same room as a domesticated Datum dog that she uses as a glorified sex toy.

* PrisonersDilemma: Selection pressure from being spread among countless alternate Earths and interacting with sapient but very alien nonhumans creates a hyperintelligent HumanSubspecies, and the government orders their largest concentration nuked. As the setting lacks an inter-dimensional communication system, the officer-in-charge has to decide whether or not to carry out the order. TheHero gives them a damned good reason to do ''no such thing'':
-->I guess my final point is a practical one. ''You can't get them all'', here today. Doctor, you say you can hunt the rest down. I doubt it. They're too smart. They'll find ways to evade us we haven't even thought of. You won't kill them all. ''But they'll remember you tried.''

* ImmortalProcreationClause: Lobsang and Agnes; this fits more under the 'letter' than the 'spirit' of the trope, since they are (arguably) immortal androids instead of immortal humans, but Agnus started off as a human and Lobsang is treated the same way by custom. They eventually end up adopting a young boy.
