* WhyDontYouJustShootHim: The cultists have many, many occasions to kill Remina, but never actually get around to it. Somewhat justified since, being batshit crazy cultists, they want to make her demise a ritualistic sacrifice during which she has to go through as much suffering as she supposedly brought to the people of Earth.

It's also likely they would have torn her apart were it not for the cultist acting as their leader to insist that Remina has to die via "ritual," likely just to prolong her agony.

* AnAesop: Surprisingly enough for a Creator/JunjiIto story, it ends with a clear and uplifting one. [[spoiler: No matter how badly things have gone, no matter how bleak the future seems, so long as you are still alive there is hope for something better.]]
* ApocalypseHow: [[spoiler: Physical Annihilation of the Solar System by PlanetEater, to be exact. Given that stars go out in Planet Remina's wake, it presumably dishes out Stellar-class apocalypses casually.]] In fact the manga shows just ''how'' it gets there. The breakdown of society early on is merely icing on the cake.

* AssInALionSkin: Played deadly serious. [[spoiler: One of Planet Remina's tongues inserts itself into a discarded spacesuit to lure in the Mineichi family and make them let their guard down so it can devour them. It's likely the humanoid figures from the probe footage were actually a similar trick.]]

* GuiltByAssociation: The mob will also kill anyone who's with Remina. However, if that person turns against Remina, the mob immediately accepts him. But if that person wants ''nothing'' to do with the crazies, they will try to kill the person anyway.

* AlienLandmass: The surface of planet Remina is a hellscape full of toxic gasses and fog, intestine-like tubes, and "trees" which look more like writhing balls of tentacles. Nearly all of it black as midnight.

** It's uplifting because there's still ''hope''. They're still alive, which means there's at least a chance for a better future, even if it would take a miracle.

* SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale: How does a Jupiter-sized ''organism'' form and not crush itself from its own gravity? There's a reason solid planets don't form that large--they would destroy themselves from their own gravity. (Even though it's actually nowhere near Jupiter size - http://mangafox.me/manga/hellstar_remina/v01/c001/30.html) Further, how does the Hellstar travel faster than light, let alone do so without killing itself? How does it withstand the vacuum of space, especially it's gigantic, sensitive eye, or its tongue? Lastly, how does it eat a planet like Earth or ''Jupiter'' without killing itself from the extreme heat, pressures, gasses and solids, radioactive material, and everything else from what it eats? All those questions were asked inside the story by the scientists who discovered and observed it. ''Nobody knows''. They did say it was from another universe, maybe it operates by different physics. [[HellGate Or...y'know...]]

* NeutralFemale: Remina does little to nothing to protect herself or defend her own life. The male character she happens to be following at the time is the one making all of the plans and doing the work to keep them both alive, with her simply being led by the hand except on rare occasions.
