* EnemyMine: Firewall, as a group, really doesn't like the ultimates (even if they have some ultimate members at the lower end), and the ultimates have little fondness for ''anyone'' outside their own clique. But Firewall recognizes the ultimates' incredible ability in combat against x-risks, and a sentinel team who happens to be pointed at the same target as an ultimate unit are advised to take all the help they can get.

* BadassNormal: The Jovians aspire to this, and those agents who haven't resleeved or upgraded their bodies definitely qualify: baseline humans who go up against immortal TranshumanAliens with just their native skills and a trusty sidearm.

Added DiffLines:
* UnderestimatingBadassery: One blind spot that can ''seriously'' ruin a sentinel's day is when they go up against Jovian agents. They expect to see agents in flats without much in the way of advanced gear. However, while they believe that they're essentially damning their souls by doing this, Jovians are very much willing to use whatever tools are necessary to fight back against the transhuman threat just outside their borders, and if that means sleeving into a tricked-out morph that would make an ultimate jealous and equipping that morph with a nanotechnological arsenal, then these men will do it.

* FictionalVideoGame: ''Breakout'' is a popular simulspace game about fighting alien threats that happens to be based on the Fall and the TITAN conflicts. It's got many popular mods, but the one relevant to the game is ''Breakout: Crisis'', a NintendoHard total-realism mod created by Firewall as a training tool and later released to the public. Firewall uses it as a sort of ''Film/TheLastStarfighter'' machine, keeping an eye on high-quality players for potential recruits. They also created an InfinityPlusOneSword in the form of an ultra-hard quest to become a super-powerful exhuman monster. Any player dedicated enough to complete the quest who then goes on a rampage through the WideOpenSandbox gets tagged as a potential threat.

It's got many popular mods, but the one relevant to the game is ''Breakout: Crisis'', a NintendoHard total-realism mod created by Firewall as a training tool and later released to the public. Firewall uses it in three ways: first, as the training simulation that it was designed for. Second, as a sort of ''Film/TheLastStarfighter'' machine, keeping an eye on high-quality players for potential recruits.

* SlidingScaleOfLibertarianismAndAuthoritarianism: Extropia and anarchists on one end of the spectrum, and the Jovian Junta on the other. The Titan Commonwealth is strongly libertarian, while the Planetary Consortium is more-or-less moderate (personal freedoms and privacy rights are very strong, but democracy is virtually nonexistent and economic restrictions are somewhat stringent).

The ultimates are hard to place; on the one hand, they have a nearly-Objectivist belief in the supremacy of the individual and their journey toward self-perfection, but their social mores emphasize extreme group identification and neo-fascism.

* LivingForeverIsAwesome: Most of transhumanity sees it this way, but the more hedonism-oriented Scum take the cake, with an explicit motivation of "party until the heat death of the universe".

Added DiffLines:
** Most bioconservatives use this as part of their reasoning for rejecting transhumanity.

* ParanoiaFuel: When dealing with [=TITAN=] tech, there's no way of knowing that they aren't ten steps ahead and you aren't already doomed. One particularly enlightening story is of a Firewall investigation into a morph company that was blasted out of existence with unusual ferocity during the Fall. It is quickly discovered that the company's morphs just happened to use an abnormal standard which rendered TITAN nanoplagues ineffective, explaining why they were targeted. However, it is then discovered that only the earliest nanoplagues were subject to this flaw, and that for most of the Fall the morphs would have provided no help. This leaves only the explanation that the [=TITANs=] specifically destroyed almost all traces of the very existence of a specific morph standard that they easily subverted anyway in order to deny transhumanity any possible insight into their already exponentially superior technology just in case anything could ever have come from it. This all happened at a rapid pace during the Fall. Firewall, with all of their resources, took a ''decade'' to figure out that this even happened, and that resistant morph is still lost to the ashes. That's what fighting a super-intelligence is like.
