* GangOfHats: The various teenage tribes are identifiable largely by costumes and color schemes (Locos wear red and black; Demon Dogs wear silver; Mozquitos are all female and dress like dominatrices with insect masks, etc.), except for the main tribe, the Mallrats, who all wear very individualistic costumes, being a RagTagBunchOfMisfits.

* TheQuisling: Ebony for the Technos in season 4. She doesn't quite realize this at first, and thinks they're equal partners. Then they move into her mansion, and in a later episode Ram reminds her that she's just a puppet before [[KickTheDog shooting one of his minions in front of her]].

* ResemblanceReveal: The reveal of Java and Siva, Ebony's sisters in Series 4. The sisters unmistakeably look like Ebony, with a similar figure, facial features, poise and long, thin braids (and [[RealLifeRelative are in fact related in real life]]). Prior to the reveal, they spent several episodes wearing robot-like masks.

** Ebony to Java and Siva when they were with the Locos. Though the sisters had a volatile relationship even before the virus, they swore to start fresh and take care of each other after their family died. Java and Siva were uncomfortable being with the Locos because of their violent behavior and wanted to leave, but Ebony ratted out their intentions to Zoot and they were imprisoned with the intention of being executed. Even though they were later released, Ebony believed they'd died and barely batted an eyelash and continued on with her life as if they never existed. [[spoiler: their appearance in season 4 and first confrontation with Ebony was on of the few times Ebony showed real fear at that point.]]

* VikingFuneral: During Season 1, [[spoiler: Zoot, the psychotic leader of tribe Locos,]] gets a Viking-style sendoff as well. This is mainly because the local cemetary has been overrun by members of a hostile rival tribe, but also because (as [[spoiler: his brother]] Bray explains) "[[spoiler: Zoot]] thought of himself as a warrior chief."

* NeverLand: The kids drama contains a fairly dark example: a setting of [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld long-lived, unaging]] children who sicken and die upon reaching long-delayed adolescence.

to:

* TwentyMinutesIntoTheFutureTwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture: The film is (obviously) set in the future of when it was first made, as the Virus hasn't happened yet; but the obvious-with-hindsight [[invoked]] TechnologyMarchesOn of the computers, CD players etc. suggests it wasn't ''that'' far into the future.

* TechnologyMarchesOn: Clearly the Virus struck in 1998, what with all the CD players instead of iPods being used and traded. Notably, the survival machines made by Jack and Dal in the first series were plausible.
** Although CD players are easier to power than iPods, which need a computer to charge from. It cold be an ease of use thing.
** The Technos also have computers with CRT screens!

* EvilCripple: Ram (the leader of the Technos) is confined to an advanced wheelchair he probably designed himself. He does, eventually, learn to walk again by the end of Series 5, so we get to see this slowly subverted.

* WetwareCPU: The Technos are carrying out a secret project by kidnapping various people and hooking them up to an inescapable virtual reality environment for Ram's private enjoyment. The hordes of mooks he fights off are created from those people.
