* DisabilitySuperpower: One of the most controversial aspects of the book is Chase's apparent ability to interfere with electronic devices with her mind, [[HandWave handwaved]] as the electronic feedback of many minds coming and going at once. She also allegedly displayed mild precognitive and mental domination abilities. Truddi& were the model for Crazy Jane in ''ComicBook/TheDoomPatrol'', who had a different superpower for each person in her system.

** And then subverted, as later in life Truddi& discover a child-abuse hotline that leads them to understand that attitudes toward child abuse have changed. A heartbreaking scene comes when Truddi& visit a library looking for information about abuse, but are unable to find any books. The librarian tells them that abused children come and check out every book on child abuse in order to know they're not alone.

** The Woman may be the primary example of this, having no name of her own [[spoiler:since it turns out she's only an empty facade to present to the world.]]

* VoidBetweenTheWorlds: The space where The Woman exists when the other Troops assume the consciousness, it is described as a WhiteVoidRoom of [[HappyPlace perfect, blissful peace]], completely empty of internal or external input. At one point the Troops deliberately withdraw all their memories at once, allowing the woman to experience the Void while conscious for the first time. It's so beautiful that [[UnwantedRevival she's reluctant to come back]].

* NobodyPoops: Lampshaded in the strangest way: partway through therapy, The Woman suddenly realizes that she has no memory of ever using the bathroom because other Troops have always handle those functions (possibly due to specific incidents of abuse related to bathrooms).

* SceneryPorn: Of the saddest possible variety. As the Troops remember their horrifying childhood, they also recall how beautiful the farm really was and how happy they might have been there if things hadn't been spoiled for them. There are a few heartbreaking descriptions of bees humming amid the apple blossoms and lush winter snowscapes, in which the sense of resentment and loss is palpable.

* ProductPlacement: 7-Eleven is mentioned many times, as the Troops like to go there. (They later became a legal secretary for the Southland company.) The first time the woman notices two selves (Mean Joe and Miss Wonderful) using the body at the same time, they're heading to 7-Eleven for coffee. Later, Page hopes she can get a Slurpee on the way home from a custodial visitation. Page and the Troops go to a seafood restaurant that is probably Long John Silver's although the name isn't mentioned. Both Stanley the therapist and Truddi's friend Jeannie gift the young Troops with Crayolas (only the iconic orange box is mentioned). Mean Joe likes Grey Flannel cologne. The Children like Yoo-Hoo and send the woman out in the middle of the night to get some.

* HeroicBSOD: Grace the Zombie is the literal embodiment of this, functioning as a personality who emerges in times of extreme physical or emotional stress to deal with situations in a plodding, one-foot-in-front-of-the-other manner while the other Troops adjust and recover. In spite of her "deadened" nature, Grace is very much capable of expressing emotion and preferences just as any other Troop member (as evidenced in a rather charming scene where she informs The Woman how she likes her coffee).
