* ProphecyPileup: Nostradamus and an Gua sage had both made prophecies about how to stop BigBad Mabus...they disagreed on whether or not Cade Foster should shoot him, however. According to the Gua prophet doing so would stop the invasion, according to Nostradamus it would jump-start it. [[spoiler: Nostadamus was right.]]

* ClipShow: The episode, where the Gua higher-ups are discussing whether or not they should proceed to the Second Wave (i.e. AlienInvasion) is mostly made up of Joshua reminding the brass of all the times that Cade has thwarted them using this trope.

Later on, they meet a few other people who use their own means (less ethical than Cade's) to fight the Gua. The third season introduces Raven Nation, an organized force, dedicated to stopping the Gua, whose members have been following Cade's exploits throughout the years and have been using his experience to prepare. Cade is eventually brought in by Raven Nation's leader Jordan to work alongside them.
