Added DiffLines:

* AfterTheEnd: The Light Universe in season two appears to be this, after the Divine Order's cleansing. Nothing even remotely resembling a civilized world appears, only isolated outposts ("Terminal", "Luvliner"), backwater planets that don't seem to have contact with the larger universe ("Lyekka", "Nook"), and decimated worlds struck by the cleansing and collapse of the Divine Order ("White Trash", "Twilight"). A vibrant, thriving universe this is '''not'''.

Added DiffLines:

* YouCantKillWhatsAlreadyDead: There's Kai who, in addition to being undead, is a {{cyborg}} whose body is "de-carbonized." As long as his supply of [[{{Phlebotinum}} protoblood]] lasts, he is indestructible.

* TheVietnamWar: ''Apocalexx Now,'' although President Priest seems to confuse it with UsefulNotes/WorldWarII with the assertion that America drove the ''Japanese'' back to "Japaneseland".

Added DiffLines:

* OrphanedEtymology: The main characters of the show were born in a different universe thousands of years before Peter Higgs was born, yet they call the Higgs boson particle by that very name. It's not TranslationConvention either, because throughout season four they speak the functional equivalent of English.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: The Lexx crew give Mantrid the means to escape from his prison, and in a HumongousMecha body, at that.

The Lexx crew give Mantrid the means to escape from his prison, and in a HumongousMecha body, at that.that.
** Despite Prince's ominous warnings about 'maintaining the balance', Xev insists on blowing up the planet Fire. Prince then hijacks the Lexx and uses it to blow up Water as well, destroying the afterlife forever and condemning every good soul will ever live to nothingness.

Added DiffLines:

* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: The tripartite entity known as "Mantrid" is an insane and highly unethical biogeneticist's severed head inside an iron lung, infected with the divine Insect Essence of the CorruptChurch he once served, and digitized into a computer program commanding an arm-y of robot drones. [[spoiler: He comes back as a soul wandering the universe's equivalent of Hell.]]

* BuryYourGays: Brother Trager in "Nook" seemed to be TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth, and moved Stanley to genuine regret that he couldn't return Trager's feelings and genuine remorse over Trager's murder.

to:

* BuryYourGays: JustifiedTrope. Aside from [[spoiler: the Catholic schoolgirls in Doctor Longbore's ship]], every single character in the show has died at least once, including the regulars, and often in a cruel and unusual way.

Added DiffLines:

* PunchPunchPunchUhOh: Zev repeatedly stabs a reanimated Divine Cleric in "Gigashadow". He merely looks down at the attempted wound, then offers her a cocked head and a slight apologetic smile. She then punches him in the face hard enough to knock him down and runs away.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseAstronomy: The back half of season two involves "patches in the sky" where Mantrid drones are converting the universe into more Mantrid drones. This conveniently ignores relativity, since anything we see happening in a distant galaxy actually happened millions or even billions of years ago according to our local time.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Retool}}: Two. The first two seasons are a picaresque WagonTrainToTheStars travelogue about wandering through a weird, wild universe of lust and death. Then, season three retools the show into a largely stationary PlanetaryRomance about a binary system [[spoiler: that's the show's equivalent of heaven and hell]] and emphasizes the morality play melodrama over the sci-fi oddity. Then, season four retools the show '''again''' to become a skewed, satirical take on modern day Earth and its foibles. While it certainly keeps the show fresh, the three "phases" are vastly different to one another and oftentimes don't even feel like the same series. Not to mention the titular spaceship is [[spoiler: basically [[{{Nerf}} nerfed]] at the beginning of season three and remains largely immobile and irrelevant until just before the GrandFinale.]]

* AuteurLicense: Every single one of the show's 61 episodes was written or co-written by some combination of Paul Donovan, Lex Gigeroff, and Jeffrey Hirschfield. When the show was renewed for a twenty-four episode fourth season (its longest season), a grand total of '''four episodes''' had outsider writers co-write the scripts alongside the main writing trio. Notably, when Hirschfield temporarily left in season three (while continuing to voice 790), Donovan and Gigeroff wrote all thirteen episodes by themselves.
