* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: The Crimson Hawk Moth knows a lot about the humans tactics in combat, and the weaknesses on them, such as targeting the garde's head to destroy the camera, thus rendering the pilot blind.

The story takes place on the gigantic GenerationShip Sidonia, where the last remnants of humanity are engaged in a seemingly HopelessWar against the monstrous Gauna. Nagate Tanikaze has lived in isolation in the bowels of the Sidonia his whole life, with only his recently deceased grandfather and Guardian pilot simulator for company. Facing starvation, Nagate journeys to the surface in an attempt to steal from a food processing plant, before being injured and captured by local authorities. Upon discovering his "grandfather's" storied past as a previously important Guardian pilot, the government puts Nagate on the fast track for elite Guardian pilot training. What follows are Nagate's attempts to fit in with civilized society, his growing relationships with his fellow students, and his growth as a pilot in the face of the horrifying threat of the Gauna.

** The Earth was cut in half, and humanity's desperate flight to the stars is almost Class 3. Sidonia may be the last refuge of Humanity, because contact with the other ships has been gone for almost 800 years.
** Sidonia itself lost more than 90% of its population in the relatively recent past. The vast majority of the ship's current population are descended from artificial genetic templates or are clones of the survivors, [[spoiler:including the protagonist]].

** Following up on the genetic engineering, "Tiresian" humans, the neutral humans that develop gender after meeting the one the Tiresian finds suitable, would be quite an extreme genetic modification. While certain animals slowly swap gender to maintain a reproductive equity and humans given intensive hormone therapy from infancy can develop the other gender's characteristics, gender neutrality is not exactly easy to attain, much less maintain. The photosynthesis in the setting isn't plant photosynthesis at all--they aren't green. The clues are scattered throughout the episodes, but Sidonian photosynthesis doesn't so much feed the body as enable reprocessing of fluids and foods already ingested, in the manner of bovine multiple stomachs. This is why, in a culture that expects the pilots to stink as a matter of necessity, Takikaze smells distinctly ''worse'' after a deployment as he consumes, perspires, urinates, and defecates rather more than "modern" Sidonians. (Hence the cadets poking fun at him while trying to help by supplying him with collected supplies of deodorant, followed by later filling his locker with rice as he eats a lot and the stress of the war was wrecking his digestion.)
* ArmorPiercingQuestion: Being the dense rube that he is, Takikaze asks the following of Izana while they are in the male changing room "Hey Izana, what type of catheter do you use?" Izana understandably loses it and utterly pulverizes him. Izana during this time had already changed into a biological female and was hiding this.

* DeusExMachina: A nicely done one happens in the very distant past of the Sidonia. An exploration team from the Sidonia are investigating a giant alien artifact so huge it dwarfs the Sidonia. Once inside they are attacked by a Gauna. Since there is nothing that can harm a Gauna, the team can only flee in horror. Eventually they get cornered into a room full of flying grains of some kind, that even the team acknowledges as bizarre. The team is pondering this when suddenly the Gauna appears and it looks like the only thing the team can do is die horribly. Just as it's about to strike, it gets caught up in the path of some of these grains. The grains cut through the Gauna and one of them bonds with the Gauna's core causing it to be destroyed. The team is amazed by this and gather some samples of the grains for study. Since they were involved in the first instance of humans being victorious over a Gauna, they are declared heroes and awarded by having research into immortality being fast-tracked and are made the first recipients of the anti-agathic drugs. This sets the stage for events centuries into the future.

** Much is made of the issue of communication with gauna, but the aforementioned adaptation shows the possible motive for the eldritch beings out of space falling upon and shattering the Earth in the first place. The gauna combine material and act as hive entities, implying communion and learning through shared genetic memory. It should be noted that the growing sophistication and technological equivalence comes as Sidonians are absorbed by gauna, organic Higgs-boson cannon and the Benisuzume being fairly blatant examples.

** A star system visited by Sidonia during the plot is named "Lem", likely in reference to the works of the Polish science fiction writer Creator/StanislawLem, whose novels often feature humans struggling to understand alien intelligence and BlueAndOrangeMorality. Main influence on the series seems to be from ''Literature/{{Solaris}}'', where a planet-wide sentient ocean tries to communicate with humans using memories drawn from their subconscious to manifest solid images, but causes much suffering to the protagonist by manifesting in the form of his former girlfriend who was DrivenToSuicide. Likewise, the Gauna here are made all the more unnerving by mimicking the appearance and personalities of those they assimilated.
