That was in the book 'Alien Bodies', not this episode.
* MakeWayForTheNewVillains: The Krotons do this to the Daleks. It doesn't take, as later serials show.

* Main/AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: When the dynatrope starts lifting off, the mature, distinguished hereditary leader breaks through two rows of guards and does a forward roll under the closing blast doors into the ship. While holding a big vial of acid! * Main/ButtMonkey: "Jamie's unusable!" * Main/ChekhovsGun: The mica. Repeatedly.

* TheQuisling: Subverted with Selris and Eelek. Selris is initially duped by the Krotons, but doesn't go into denial when their evil becomes apparent, and his reluctance to attack them is a realistic appreciation of his people's relative weakness and the fact that the Krotons would probably respond with genocide. Eelek, who in usual examples of this trope would be the LastStand, is transparently unstable, power-hungry and villainous[[note]]For a start, he's played by Philip Madoc[[/note]].

'''WARNING! THERE MAY BE UNMARKED SPOILERS!'''

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The Krotons were written with the intent of replacing the Daleks as the Doctor's principle nemesis. Unfortunately (Depending on how you look at it) the Krotons didn't have the same impact the Daleks had and they faded into obscurity.

four separate people mention the smell on multiple occasions
* ArtisticLicenseChemistry: If the Krotons really are tellurium-based, they should reek to high heaven (one of the principal properties of tellurium is its absolutely foul odor), yet nobody says a word about any stench.
