* BigDumbObject: The deep space artifact, a regular triangular pyramid covered in irregular circular holes discovered by the Sidonia many years ago. It's connected to the Gauna somehow, as the Kabi were found inside it, but nothing about it is ever learned.

** In episode 8 of season 2, there’s a brief scene where Tanikaze, Tsumugi, Yuhata, and Izana are all watching a movie. Then Tsumugi openly wonders what happened to [[{{Anime/Blame}} Killy]] after all that...

* EldritchAbomination: The Gauna are massive, shapeshifting fetus-like creatures with the ability to assimilate humans with their CombatTentacles. While their placenta bodies can be injured, Gauna are only able to be killed if their True Bodies are destroyed. Gauna are further capable of replicating human technology, something they become increasingly proficient at after assimilating Hoshijiro.

* HonorBeforeReason: Kunato never gets over Tanikaze getting the first chance to pilot the Type 17, nor for Tanikaze getting a Gauna kill before he does. This drives Kunato to screw with Tanikaze in a number of ways, most notably [[spoiler: sabotaging Tanikaze in a fight with a Hive-Type Gauna, which results in a number of his squadmates being killed unnecessarily and [[NiceJobBreakingItHero indirectly enabling the creation of the Benisuzume.]]]]

** The asteroid Gauna's propulsion core needs to be disabled before it can be destroyed, to prevent evasive maneuvers. Ninety percent of it is destroyed...[[spoiler: only for the Crimson Hawkmoth Gauna to break off from the main body and slaughter the squad taking care of it, and the propulsion system quickly regenerates]].

** 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, showing 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.

* MirrorMatch: The Garde versus Benisuzume, [[spoiler:a replica of a Garde eaten by the Gauna]].

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: If Kunato hadn't been so obsessed with his vendetta against Tanikaze, it's likely that [[spoiler: Toshijiro would not have been integrated by the Gauna, which would also mean the Benisuzume wouldn't exist either.]] An unusual example in that Kunato ''knew'' he was breaking it; he just wanted to pin the blame on Tanikaze.

* AmbiguouslyEvil: The Gauna. No one knows anything about their motives or why they destroyed Earth. On the one hand, they attack relentlessly and kill any human they get hold of. On the other, the fact that they continuously attempt to imitate humans and human technology leads some characters to wonder if they aren't trying to communicate somehow. It's an open question as to whether any of the human copies spawned by Gauna are actually intelligent or if they are just mimicking actions they've observed without any real understanding of what they're doing. [[spoiler:And the giant Mass Union Cluster destroyed in the finale of the story? Despite ''Sidonia'' having spent the entire story fighting against it, its last act as it disintegrated was to seed the planet Lem-VII with its own biomass, which terraformed the whole planet within a few years into a place humanity could live comfortably.]]

* TheUriahGambit: The Immortal Council wants Tanikaze dead for reasons not immediately explained and to this end has the Captain order him to fly in every single mission against the Gaunas in the hope that they'll eventually kill him. [[spoiler:This backfires as not only Nagate always survives but he eventually becomes ''Sidonia'''s greatest hero. The reason for this is that [[spoiler:Tanikaze is an immortal and they couldn't tolerate an immortal outside of the committee hierarchy, so as a compromise to outright killing him, the captain agreed to put him on what should have been a suicide mission as a compromise. As long as he keeps succeeding, he can live. Of course once the committee is offed in a coup by the captain, he's no longer required to attend missions but tends to do so anyway due to having become used to being a hero.]]

Added DiffLines:

* AttackItsWeakPoint: The only weak point on the Gauna is their core, or "True Body", which when sufficiently damaged cause them to explode. Most engagements boil down to the Guardians desperately trying to chip through the Gauna's nigh-invulnerable regenerating armor to reach the weakpoint.
