* Some of the ''GaiaOnline'' labtechs have meaningful ''numbers''. 247 was a workaholic (to the point where he actually got a cot for his office so he could be there [[DontExplainTheJoke 24/7]]), 101 was [[{{Subject101}} not very intelligent]] for a professional scientist, and [[ThirteenIsUnlucky 013]] was killed off at the beginning, among others.
* Common with the ''{{Protectors of the Plot Continuum}}'', especially as many agents are {{Only Known by Their Nickname}}. ShoutOut names are common, and some agents are from continua where symbolic or prophetic (such as with [[TheLordOfTheRings Tolkienverse elves']] mother-names) names are widespread.

** Once you get down to it, the entire cast fits in some way or another. The main character is named Ruby Rose, and is associated with [[ColorMotif red]] and [[FlowerMotif roses]]. Weiss Schnee literally translates to [[Literature/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs Snow White]] in German, [[FairytaleMotifs which she is themed around]]. Blake is a first name generally [[TomboyishName given to boys]] that means "black" in Old English, also alluding to her ColorMotif; in addition, her last name Belladonna refers to the the {{Disney}} adaptation of ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast''. Finally, Yang Xiao Long translates to roughly "Small Sun Dragon" in Chinese, hinting at both her ColorMotif (again) and her [[PlayingWithFire fire-based abilities]]. And that's just the main cast!
