* SchizoTech: The land of the Territories, which has knotted sticks for currency, swords as the favored weapon, horse-drawn carriages... and [[spoiler: a large steam train]]. Justified in that it's established during a flashback of a conversation between Jack's father and Morgan Sloat that schematics for technology in their world can be easily brought over to the Territories. Jack's father even warns Morgan about the possible repercussions of advancing Territories civilization too quickly through their influence.

Considering the [[spoiler: train]] is Morgan's, it's obvious he didn't listen.

* EvilIsPetty: Morgan Sloat. Some of the more dickish moves he does in the story is reducing a car wash attendant to a nervous wreck simply because he was having a bad day, and telling Jack [[IBangedYourMom he had sex with Jack's mother]] [[spoiler: during the final battle]] to enrage the boy and catch him off-guard.
