* CultureChopSuey: The Tarr family, our main viewpoint on Castithi culture combines traits of the Italian Mafia, the Hindu caste system, Japanese bathing rituals and stereotypical Arabic Muslim attitudes towards women. This is taken to the point where a Castithan word is translated as "Capo". Increasingly Irathients are coming to stand for a hodge-podge of historically oppressed races.

* CerebusSyndrome: From the start, it was a show about a world that is not easy to live in and is far from having BlackAndWhiteMorality, and we got to see some rather unpleasant ways to die, but season three is so dark it makes season one look like ''SesameStreet.''

* DoubleStandardRapeMaleOnMale: Also averted. Pottinger's RapeAsBackstory by VC soldiers is taken just as seriously as Amanda's by some random assailant[[spoiler: who turned out to not have been random at all, but actually Pottinger, who became obsessed with Amanda after Connor had [[BiTheWay left him for her]], stalked and later raped her.]].

** Datak is a power hungry, [[ManipulativeBastard manipulative]] crime lord, but he's still disgusted by [[MadBomber Madis]]. He also supports Amanda in a, likely, hopeless defense of the town against the Volge, promising to forgive the debt of anyone who chooses to fight. He could have easily tried to pack up and leave with his family and servants. Indeed, during the battle, he does not hide behind others and does his share of the fighting, calling another Castithan a "[[PardonMyKlingon shtako]] coward" for running away.

* DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale: Subverted. It is taken very seriously when [[spoiler: Nolan is raped by Kindzi. She's a 'she,' and she's pretty, but she's also much stronger than a human, a murderer dozens of times over, armed, and she sets new records in AxCrazy. When she took Nolan from the VC caravan by slaughtering them, restrained him, [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty described her intentions to make him her 'pet,']] and then forced herself on him, no part of the situation was treated as a minor thing due to Nolan being male]], though only time will tell if the subject is taken up again once the immediate crisis is over.
