* CameBackWrong: Unless you are very, very lucky, any attempt raising the dead brings them back evil and insane. If you ''really'' screw up you might get a batch of [[PrometheanTheCreated Pandorans]]. On the other hand, you can deliberately attempt to bring a corpse back as a Promethean or a [[TabletopGame/VampireTheRequiem vampire]].
** 'Course, you still run the risk of really pissing off whoever you brought back. Fun Fact: They might not be HAPPY that they [[PrometheanTheCreated are a walking wasteland]], and depending on how you did it, it may be impossible for them to interact with normal humans due to the possibility of Havoc (if they are being kept alive by Wonders, at least)

* ImplacableMan: [[WalkingTechbane Clockstoppers]] can pull a limited version of this trick with their "Natural Body" [[FunctionalMagic Void.]] Wonders and conventional technology like [[ImmuneToBullets firearms]] and [[OutOfTheInferno explosives]] don't do a blasted thing at higher levels, and at its strongest, ''any'' technology attempting to influence the Clockstopper fails. This includes [[BlessedWithSuck medical technology,]] [[AchillesHeel which is a blasted shame,]] because even at that rank, [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu a right hook works just fine.]] [[TabletopGame/ChangelingTheLost And then]] [[TabletopGame/VampireTheRequiem there's]] [[TabletopGame/WerewolfTheForsaken the matter]] [[TabletopGame/MageTheAwakening of]] [[PrometheanTheCreated magic]][[TabletopGame/GeistTheSinEaters ...]]

* TragicDream: In keeping with the central theme of futility a lot of Mad Scientist have this. Some Geniuses have a tragic dream because they're mad and lack the social skills and organisational skills needed to accomplish a task, or because attempts to do regular science end up turning into mad science. Just as often it's because their dream itself is fundamentally nonsense. For example Seattle's atomists are trying to create a utopia. They genuinely believe a "fascist police state governed by all-seeing technology" would be utopia which makes achieving their dream impossible.

** A non in-universe example; the book says that among the archaeological errors can be found in the Hollow Earth is the Brontosaurus. However, since the book was written, real-world Scientists have determined that the Brontosaurus is a valid genus distinct from Apatosauri.

*** The Hermetic Order of the 28 Spheres especially focuses on the fact that All Theories Are False, since Geniuses don't do real science, and all their theories (as long as they're self-consistent) work equally well as frameworks for Maniacal devices. Therefore, it honesstly doesn't matter ''what'' theory you base your Wonders on, because everything works. They have a lot of fun with this (while simultaneously trolling more serious-minded Geniuses. Most of their raison d'etre focuses around subverting expecctations and testing the limits of what Mania considers a "workable theory".
