**''X-Risks'' introduces the Causapod - a neogenetic creature made for a contest to create a new Martian life form, which are best described as "land octopi". Their genes were open sourced after the contest, and some have since gone feral. In addition to cosmetic modifications like soft fur and bioluminescence, some of them add hostile features like spines, acid spit, or ''exploding''. They're basically swarm cats without the "cat" requirement, built from scratch.

* AndIMustScream: All sorts of chilling stuff can happen to you if your ego (ie, your conciousness) ends up in the wrong hands. For example the Ultimates are rumored to download indentured infomorphs into deaf, visually limited flats with no AR implants.[[note]]That may not seem bad, but remember this is a society where all but the poorest people have full mesh access essentially from birth, and where most genetic defects have been eliminated- these deficiencies are considered ''crippling'' by the standards of transhumanity.[[/note]]

** Nobody knows what happens to victims of Headhunters, head-sized drones that literally rip your head off and take it to the nearest TITAN-controlled uploading center, but it being the Titans, it can't be good.
** Flesh Parties are exsurgent-infected who are liquefied and splattered across an area as a means of area denial... still alive and fully aware of what's being done to their bodies, along with any damage they take from others trying to move through the area.

* [[EverythingIsAniPodInTheFuture Everything Is An iPod In The Future]]: Nanotechnology and future materials, combined with the ever-increasing demand of future transhumans for ever-increasing comfort and ease of use (as well as the necessity for every item to be usable by a variety of different morphs in a variety of different environments) means that just about anything that isn't a weapon, a suit of armor, or implanted into your body is a palm sized, smooth, cream-colored ovoid with little glowy bits instead of buttons (assuming it isn't controlled wirelessly by the computer in your brain). These little iPods are virtually weightless and indestructible, never malfunction, never need a recharge, clean and repair themselves, can easily be attached to any surface (so they won't go floating around in your microgravity bedroom) and are usually controlled by a friendly internal AI. Some people refer to such devices as "blobjects".

Jovian tech (and, in general, tech made without nanotech or 3D-printers) are an aversion - being made deliberately without nanites and nanoengineering, they tend to be big and clunky, but still work.

*** Given that one of the starting bodies available are 'Pleasure Pods' which are bio-engineered hookers who can switch their gender at will, can be remote controlled to a punters whims and have enhanced control over ''certain'' muscle groups, yeah... theres some weird kinky sex in the transhuman future.

* UnitedSpaceOfAmerica: Justified. In a rather sobering moment it is revealed that during the Fall the more affluent parts of the world left the less affluent parts of the world to die, and there was a holocaust by omission of the entire African continent.

** The Firewall's decentralized and compartmentalized nature can lead many to conflicts between different Servers (Super-cells), made worse by the fact that Firewall was founded by the various anti-x-threat agencies[=/=]organizations with different ideas on how to combat said x-threats, from which came five major ideological factions:
*** The Backups, who believe that the Second Fall is not only possible, but is inevitable and cannot be prevented, so they try to make sure that Transhumanity can survive it by establishing more exo-colonies and building Arcships. Everybody else think that they leech resources from the more immediate concerns.
*** The Conservatives, who believe that the only appropriate response to anything that is a potential x-threat to transhumanity is to destroy it, and that includes any kind of AI, including the [=AGIs=]. Many view them as overly paranoid, xenophobic and racist, but they have the most means to supply and finance the Firewall agents, giving them substantial influence. Used to be the dominant factions early after the Fall, but an incident where the trigger-happy agents destroyed the ship with the thousands of infugees on board because the captain happened to be an AGI kicked them out of the defacto leadership, which was snatched by...

They are also believe that Firewall should go public and work with the government agencies. Their opponents think that this will result in Firewall being subverted by the enemies.

Due to Firewall being decentralized, servers that predominantly trend Maverick have a reputation for abandoning all but the most basic operational structures and regulations.for being at risk of leaving Firewall entirely. The rest of the factions consider the Mavericks to be more of a problem than a legitimate faction, and want to keep them limited so they won't expose the organization as a whole.

* MindRape: There's a lot more of this than just the Exsurgent Virus. Some exhumans call themselves "soul-eaters" - they rip bits out of other people's egos and graft those pieces onto their own. And ''anyone'' can, with enough resources and sufficiently few scruples, pop someone's ego in a simulation with YearInsideHourOutside and torture them for as long as they please.
