* {{BFS}}: Ivy's weapon is this even without the additional sections concealed inside that can fold out like a switchblade to make it longer.



* FantasticRacism: It's not obvious under all the fighting for survival, but when Killy kills a cyborg, who didn't hurt anybody even provided information(!) and wanted to be left alone, justifying it with only "he was silicon life" becomes obvious that he would murder them even on principle.

* KickTheSonOfABitch: In chapter 4, Killy finds a factory were baby cyborgs are born. After eating all their food the nursebot becomes angry with him. His response? Blow things up. In the next chapter he taunts a pair of Silicon Life about killing their kids. Keep in mind that the Silicon Creatures as a whole are on a campaign to wipe out all of humanity, except for the one Silicon Life member who is apparently nothing more than a dedicated amateur [[UnnecessarilyLargeInterior astromoner]]. Killy shoots him just to be safe.
** [[spoiler: He appears to have mellowed out somewhat in Blame! 2 - he is now shown to protect Silicon Life from the Safeguard, presumably because they are no longer the destabilising threat they used to be.]]

* CameBackWrong: Seu is repeatedly healed by a MattorReplicator, but each time his mind degrades more and more.

* GoodScarsEvilScars: Averted. Killy could easily pass as a bad guy in any other series, if one were to judge on looks alone.
** Actually the character design tends to purposely lean towards pale, sickly and generally depressing.

* OrderVersusChaos: In Noise, the main character is a cop investigating a cult who worship the power of chaos who are kidnapping children to use for human sacrifices in their bizarre MagiTek rituals. When they kill her, she is resurrected by the Safeguard, protectors of order, but they turn out to be a pack of fascists who plan on disenfranchising or killing everybody who can't afford network implants and brainwashing the ones who do. Then in Blame!, we see the aftermath of this; the cult succeeded in throwing the world into chaos, but since they're so poorly organized their descendants, the Silicon Creatures, don't amount to much more than a bunch of roving cyber-barbarians. The Safeguard doesn't fare much better, as their directives become so corrupted that they essentially believe that everything that's not them must be exterminated with[[AbusivePrecursors extreme prejudice]].

* WorldOfChaos: some of the architecture is just bizzare or large; some of it clearly has more going on. Toha Heavy Industries also has one of these ''inside'' it.

* NotQuiteDead: Happens quite often. It is [[MindScrew arguable]] that no one really dies in the world of ''{{Blame}}!'', thanks to the [[spoiler:{{Cyberspace}} backups]].

* {{Transhuman}}: In It's entirety, we do not see a single purely biological human. Everyone is heavily modified, be they cyborgs, human-descended androids, or gene-modded superhumans. The closest to "pure" human we get is Seu, and he's an eight-foot giant with enough enhancements to fight in hand-to-hand combat with advanced Silicon Life warriors, who has been reconstructed and had his personality restored from backup countless times. Most "normal" humans were exterminated by either the Silicon Creatures or the Safeguard, given the events of ''[=NOiSE=]'','' {{Blame}}!'s'' prequel.

* TakeAThirdOption: [[spoiler: This may be Cibo's motivation when she double registers using Seu's Net-Terminal Genes, and Sana-kan's motivation for advising Cibo against trusting the [[TheGovernment The Authority]] after Cibo fuses with the Level 9 and transcribes the Genes into herself, and then going on to be her bodyguard. This makes sense once you realize that, in the prequel (NOiSE), The Authority and the Safeguard were planning to disefranchise all humans without Net-Terminal Genes and install a fascist government of some sort. This would also explain The Authority's "new plan" that involved a 1st Level Exterminator trying to eat the Sphere.]]

** BadassBookworm: Cibo.
** BadassLongcoat: The [[AlmightyJanitor protagonist]] of ''[[{{Spinoff}} Net Sphere Engineer]]'' wears one of these. [[spoiler: Sana-Kan, when she returns and becomes Cibo's protector.]]
** BadassNormal: Seu, so very much. In a world where baseline humans are armed with {{BFG}}s or hyper-sophisticated hacking equipment, and ''still'' die by the dozens, Seu stands alone, as an almost-baseline human who fights off dozens of cyborgs, including the genuinely BadAss [[DreadlockWarrior Ivy]] and [[DarkActionGirl Maeve]] while armed with nothing more than a perfectly normal {{BFS}}.
