* PsychicPowers: A [[MindOverMatter telekinetic]] human girl working for aliens in the appropriately named episode ''UsefulNotes/MataHari''. Kills people by crushing them. The main BigBad Mabus has some too. Then there's Nostradamus, who predicted the whole thing in the first place ([[spoiler:he was a member of a prescient alien species that has been exterminated by the Gua]]). The Gua in general are able to sense one another to an extent, since some information indicates that it would be otherwise impossible for them to determine if the being in front of them is a Gua or not (they change continuously as they age, meaning no two Gua look alike).

* TheEmpire: The Gua are an expansionist totalitarian state, where the needs of an individual don't matter when faced with the needs of the state. They have already conquered and exterminated at least one alien race, and Earth is their next target. Only two thing are forcing them to bide their time before launching a full-scale invasion: the great distance between their homeworld and Earth and the desire to avoid massive casualties. Hence the titular First Wave, an infiltration to prepare Earth for a CurbStompBattle.

* ParlorGames: A group of popular high school girls play "Truth or Dare" near a football field, where the players are doing laps. One of them chooses "Dare" and is told to flash the players as they're passing them. She only shows the bare minimum amount of reluctance before agreeing, barely frowning at another girl's comment that most of the players have already seen her boobs anyway. She flashes the players, resulting in an unintentional football pileup. The game then turns more serious, when the girls choose "Truth" for another girl and demand that she tell them about [[DomesticAbuse her bruise]].

* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: An episode with a self-described witch has a climax in which she and several of her friends hold hands and chant some spell, while Cade is fighting a Gua in a cabin. Suddenly, just as the Gua is about to deliver the killing blow, an ax falls from its place on the wall and cleaves the alien in two. We are left to wonder if the ax falling was the result of the spell or just a random accident. Then again, Cade does speak to Nostradamus's spirit at one point, and PsychicPowers are known to be real in this 'verse..

* ArtificialGravity: One of the technologies mastered by the Gua. A Gua uses an anti-gravity field to fake a miracle, when posing as a cult leader. Cade then repeats the trick to break his hold on the believers.

* HoneyTrap: Given that Gua husks are designed to be physically attractive, and that the Gua are perfectly willing to use sex to get their way (especially since, as they discover, human sex is pleasurable, while Gua sex is very painful), this is a standard tactic.

* PuppeteerParasite
to:
* PuppeteerParasiteSuperStrength: While all Gua husks are stronger than the average human, one in particular is given incredible strength, speed, and endurance (not to mention the MostCommonSuperpower) in order to allow her to kill Cade. She is shown to be easily capable of punching through a metal shipping container, but [[spoiler:she can't survive having one dropped on her]].
