* AirborneAircraftCarrier: Sort of. High Martian have flying ships, but can fly individually and can make a boarding attack without actually boarding laying their ship next to the boardee.

* {{EVERYTHINGSBETTERWITHDINOSAURS}}: There are dinosaurs on Venus somewhat justified by Victorian ideas of aging worlds where Venus is a younger world than Earth. However, the real reason is of course that everything is better with dinosaurs.

There was also a 1989 Computer {{RPG}}, ''Mars 1889'', which is mostly forgotten today. ''TabletopGame/SavageWorlds'' also has a reedition called Red Sands.

* AmericanDream: The American dream is very much alive in the Victorian era. A poor person becoming rich is very much associated with the US (whether this is statistically more likely in America than elsewhere is another question of course). Self-improvement is very much an international, Western ideal by this time.

* QueenVicky: British are expected to toast to the "dear Queen" and use "for Queen and country" as a slogan -it is unlikely that they will meet her in person unless they perform som truly great deed and are awarded with some of the major orders of merit or the like. In one adventure in Transactions of the Royal Martian Geographical Society the [=PC=]s do get to meet her in person [[spoiler: though not in her own body at first.]].

* ZeppelinsFromAnotherWorld: German-built ether flyers are this trope in an almost literal fashion, relying on gas bags for lift. Justified, as Germany is a) lacking access to a steady supply of liftwood, and b) the majority of the colonial presence on Venus, where the damp conditions rapidly render liftwood useless.
