* DeathSeeker: [[spoiler: If his battle with Epsilon is any indication, Pluto wants to die.]]



* NothingIsScarier: It takes several volumes before we get a full view of Pluto, which makes his appearances that much more terrifying.

* NothingIsScarier: It takes several volumes before we get a full view of Pluto, which makes his appearances that much more terrifying. Notably when he does appear [[spoiler: he stops becoming the elemental monster he was in all his previous appearances - see VillainDecay.]]



* OneDegreeOfSeperation: Pretty much all the main characters have some kind of connection to the 39th Central Asian Conflict. [[spoiler: This is a plot point.]]



* PersonOfMassDestruction: Montblanc, North #2, Brando, Heracles, Gesicht, Atom, and ''especially'' Epsilon.

to:

* PersonOfMassDestruction: Montblanc, North #2, Brando, Heracles, Gesicht, Atom, and ''especially'' Epsilon. Oh, and Pluto of course.



** Early in the story it's revealed that Brando and Heracles both have human-like bodies outside their robot ones. When Uran meets a vagrant-like robot, a reader familiar with the original story will assume that this is Pluto's human-like body. [[spoiler: It turns out the body belonged to another robot - [[PeoplePuppets Pluto was just using the empty body for a joyride]]. (It's eventually revealed he did have a human-like body though.)]]



* TomatoInTheMirror: [[spoiler: Abra]]

to:

* TomatoInTheMirror: [[spoiler: Abra]]Abullah]]
* TwoAliasesOneCharacter: Three, actually. [[spoiler: Goji, Bora, and the Dr. Abullah seen in most of the story all turn out to be the same character.]]
* TwoDunIt: [[spoiler: While the robot murders were carried out by Pluto, the human murders appear to be the work of Goji/Abullah.]]


Added DiffLines:

* VillainDecay: Justified, intentional example. [[spoiler: For most of the story, Pluto is an elemental beast of destruction, the monster that hides in darkness. Once he's finally fully seen though, he helps out a child and then begs for help himself, wishing to die. In other words, the monster in darkness turns out to be something human after all. Pluto's role as an elemental monster is then replaced by Bora.]]

A manga by Creator/NaokiUrasawa, the man behind ''Manga/{{Monster}}'' and ''TwentiethCenturyBoys''. The story is an UltimateUniverse reimagining of the classic ''Manga/AstroBoy'' story arc "The Greatest Robot on Earth" (which can be found in ''Astro Boy'' book three, in case you want to check it out before reading the remake).

** Then again, Tenma is not Atom's father ''proper''. The reason why Tenma sold Atom is that in atom he just made an automaton in the likeness of his deceased son Tobio who was most definitely ''not Tobio''. This however, was certainly not Atom's fault.

** The first one might be a subversion. While the robot KKK were horrified, they had no problem using the consequences ([[spoiler: the enraged robot father breaking the laws of robotics to kill the man in vengence]]) to their advantage.

** In universe example: When they opened up Brau-1589 what did they find? What did they find in his programming that caused him to avert being ThreeLawsCompliant?... Nothing. There was nothing wrong with his programming and [[ParanoiaFuel nothing there that could explain why any other robot couldn't do the same.]] This is the reason that he's kept in isolation instead of just being destroyed, the authorities are still trying to find out what went wrong in his programming because they're too scared of the implications that nothing did.
