* InvincibleHero: It's clear from the offset that humanity is going to roflstomp the ForcesOfHell: the main conflict isn't whether or not humanity will win, it's "[[AndThenWhat what happens when they do and everything changes forever]]"? and it's clear that humanity's nervous about the answer to that one.

* BadassBookworm: Humanity as a whole is this, compared to the demons, but [[WordOfGod author's word]] has explicitly said [[http://bbs.stardestroyer.net/viewtopic.php?p=3330269#p3330269 it about GEN David Petraeus' presence]] on the Four Star Badass entry:

* GodsNeedPrayerBadly: Satan's justification for torture, Heaven's justification for endless chanting. Official reason? Allowing them to build up "energy" for going into the "true" afterlife... Heavily hinted to be a big, fat amount of bullshit from Yahweh and Satan. [[spoiler:They were actually using that so-called energy to increase their own powers, only they just weren't doing right in any meaningful way. WordOfGod is that Hell was ultimately perfectly futile and endless torture.]]

* HollowWorld: WordOfGod says that both Heaven and Hell are hollow worlds, where the inhabitants live on the inside of the planet. This was inspired by the common usage that people live "on Earth" and "in Heaven" or "in Hell" together with classical "Golden Age" science fiction that featured hollow worlds. However, the trope is subverted since Heaven and Hell are not so much hollow as complex multi-dimensional shapes (like klein bottles) that have an inner surface but no outer surface. Digging down from Hell doesn't lead to an infinity of rock, it merely brings the digger out somewhere else in Hell.

** [[AvertedTrope Averted]] with the war against the demons. Humanity takes POWs and defectors and treats them well (to the shock of the demons, who expect to be tortured or killed), and make a point not to harm civilians who don't fight back (CollateralDamage notwithstanding). Though, as the Targeteer tells [[spoiler: Abigor]], humanity would be completely justified in completely wiping out demonkind.

* LesCollaborateurs: When Hell's forces realize the danger, they decide to offer some humans luxuries (as in no torture) for help. Most prominent is an American soldier from World War II, bitter about being abandoned by God after giving his life for a righteous war, tells them about [[spoiler: Detroit]].

** Yahweh throwing tantrums and destroying his throne room whenever Michael brings more news of how spectacularly they are failing to beat the humans quickly becomes a source of amusement for both him and the readers.
