* InformedAbility: Sam Yeager is constantly mentioned to be the only human capable of thinking as the Race do, but no actual examples are provided of him doing it. All of his "insights" are common sense.

* ALienKudzu: Once the humans and the Race find a form of peace, the Race starts importing large amounts of flora and fauna from their homeworld, causing serious ecological damage in the areas of Earth they occupy. In ''Homeward Bound'', this happens again when some mice the humans had brought to Home as food-testers are (accidentally) released and promptly multiply and go invasive. [[MoralMyopia The Race promptly throws a fit.]]

* EvenEvilHasStandards: Not really evil so much as morally gray, but Jager and the Race are both shocked and horrified at stories of Nazi concentration camps. Particularly the Race, for whom the idea of industrialized mass murder is something they've never imagined.

They land squarely in the middle of WorldWarTwo, to the absolute confusion of everyone involved. Through the eyes of LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters, of all nationalities, human and alien, we read about the humans desperately trying to survive, and the aliens desperately trying to win. The Race is forced to become more like humans, making hasty decisions and breaking protocol. It also turns out that ginger (the spice) is a powerful and highly addictive narcotic for the Race, which further strains their normal way of life. This takes up the four books of the ''Balance'' series (the original ''Worldwar'' series) and ends with a stalemate and truce between the Race and the human governments that managed to resist their invasion (the USA, [[NaziGermany the Greater German]] ''[[NaziGermany Reich]]'', the SovietUnion, the UnitedKingdom and ImperialJapan.)

** Warships are, too, a nasty surprise for them -from ''In the Balance'', when those vessels are mentioned to attack bases close to water, to the ''Colonization'' series, when Lizards have a hard time attempting to detect the almost always submerged nuclear submarines-.

*** For that matter, after President Earl Warren's suicide, several of the Race's experts on humans gather to discuss the reasons behind this act. They unofficially call this gathering the "Warren Commission". In RealLife, the Warren Commission was the unofficial name for the committee that investigated JohnFKennedy's assassination, named so after the presiding Chief Justice Earl Warren.
