* DesignerBabies : Everyone in Tiphares is one, and born in {{Uterine Replicator}}s. [[spoiler:Desty Nova and Jim Roscoe]] are the result of the Genetic Engineering Nurtured Enhanced-intelligence ([[FunWithAcronyms G.E.N.E.]]) Project: an experiment in breeding superhuman intellect in an isolated environment - [[spoiler:''Tiphares''. 400 were created in Tiphares, no differently from any of its other citizens. 370 went insane in Tiphares itself, being smart enough to figure out both the project and how Tipharean brains are replaced with chips - just like Roscoe. 40 escaped to the surface - and 36 died there. Four of them - Desty Nova in Phase 13 of ''Last Order'' - managed to ascend the orbital elevator to Ketheres... where Aga Mbadi killed them, and implanted their brain chips in his own brain to enhance his own intellect. Nova was diabolical enough to resist this assimilation... and joined Mbadi in his experiments]].

** Earth has become a large salvage yard with little to no form of order and opportunities, except for Tiphares that used resources extracted from Earth into manufactured goods sold to enrich themselves.

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:Last Order ends with the Scrapyard, Tiphares and Ketheres finally making peace, and Figure finally being reunited with Alita...or at least the one he met. The one we have been following the whole series instead continues her journey to Mars, leaving all of her former comrades behind with the belief that she may not return alive.]]

* BrainFood: Makaku, Alita's first big bounty, ''got'' that bounty because he's fond of randomly grabbing people in the streets, tearing off the tops of their skulls, and slurping up their brains. Notably, it's not just pure sadism(though he has ''plenty'' of that) - it's because he's a ''junkie''; Nova designed his cyborg body to efficiently extract [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beta-Endorphin beta-endorphin]] from chordate nerve tissue. A few seconds before he's first seen snacking on people, his underling is offering money for a (living and playing!) dog's brain.

* WhereDoesHeGetAllThoseWonderfulToys: [[RagtagBunchOfMisfits Space Angels]] have nowhere near the budget that'd be realistically required to maintain a competitive Z.O.T.T. team. Justified in that Alita and the twins are basically Desty Nova's guinea pigs, and the guy can apparently ''create'' whatever he needs. Sechs on his part effectively hired Yani on credit, and the latter agreed mainly for the same reason as Nova he needed someone to test his newest iteration of a Fizziroy body. Still, they mainly plodder through on credit, donations and Holy Ghost, with only the promise of a prize to back it. At least Zazie is officially "on the loan" from the Martian Kingdom army, which makes them a kind of semi-official Mars entrant, but given that TheKingdom is [[PerpetualPoverty just as poor]], it doesn't help much.

* EnforcedTechnologyLevels: Not as extreme as most cases - all kinds of sci-fi staples such as computers, advanced medicine, and of course cybernetics are permitted - but the Factory enforces an ''absolute'' ban on aircraft and firearms. Both are for self-evident reasons; aircraft are forbidden to keep Scrapyarders out of Tiphares, firearms are forbidden to keep Scrapyarders from standing any real chance against Tiphareans in combat. Getting caught with either is an instant death sentence.
