* ComicBookFantasyCasting: On the "new technology acquired" screens, the animated figures presenting the new toys are drawn to resemble Sean Connery (as a lead scientist if the tech was researched by you) and Willem Dafoe (as a commando with a prosthetic arm if the tech was captured in battle from another empire). The leader portrait for the Human empire is also clearly Patrick Stewart.

Their ''Conquer the Stars'' appearance goes with humanoids with tail fins, face tentacles, and a single eye.

* CrystalSpiresAndTogas: The Psilon aesthetic in ''Conquer the Stars''. Their leader, the Controller, is shown wearing robes in a brightly-lit room curved room with plenty of windows and some strange glowing contraption spinning in the center. The music is decidedly New-Agey. Even the Controller's voice is a soothing baritone.

* ArbitraryHeadcountLimit: Generally averted, since the game allows you to have more ships than your command points allow, although it comes at a hefty economic penalty. Played straight with Doom Stars in ''Conquer the Stars'', where any player is limited to one at a time. This prevents players from having a fleet entirely made up of Doom Stars.

* SiliconBasedLife: The Silicoids, naturally. Their appearance varies from game to game, although it tends to keep them vaguely humanoid (two arms and two legs), except for the third game, where they appear to be a strange mish-mash of purple crystals with tendrils. In the 2016 game, they return to their appearance from the first game, including the strange glowing rocks floating around in their head cavity. Due to their nature, they consume inorganic matter, so food is useless to them. However, this also means that their production is reduced because they eat the ore. They are also much more resistant to hostile biomes. In the 2016 game, they are the only race, who can terraform Volcanic planets.
