* CorruptCorporateExecutive: [[spoiler: Surprisingly not Execk, who is literally the textbook definition of a Corporate Executive. Instead, it's Rubirules, who wishes to use SOFTDI as the foundation for a new technological age. Not only does this bring up major ethical questions about the morality of stripping down a sentient being that can feel real sensations (such as pain), Rubirules also uses an actual human being as the crux of an antivirus program (who may be unconscious or even brain dead thanks to what he did to her). To be fair, Rubirules wasn't fully aware of what had happened to Flamegirl (thanks to Neomutant throwing an "IfICan'tHaveYou"-motivated tantrum), but then again, once he finds out what's going on, he basically says that he doesn't care. ]]

* ContinuityNod: [[spoiler: The password that Rubirules types into the terminal to see SOFTDI in the final episode spells out "Gamecrazed". Not only does this suggest that SOFDTI used the password as the inspiration for her character's name, it also works as a nod to the players who correctly guessed that SOFDTI and GC were one and the same.]]

For most of its lifespan, TOME had an somewhat interesting upload cycle, due to the fact that it continued for over three years uninterruped (resulting in an even longer run than its predecessor, which only lasted about two and a half years before its cancellation). Although the Remake's first four episodes were funded by Newgrounds, (and were at first exclusive to it), the series stopped posting new episodes to Newgrounds after Episode Nine and eventually expanded onto YouTube (although the YouTube uploads were taken down for a time before being re-uploaded in two parts via Channel Frederator). The series eventually created its own website (which used embeds of versions of the episodes uploaded to Blip) before finally finding a permanent home on YouTube, where Chris Niosi uploaded complete versions of all sixteen episodes, seven shorts, and the April Fool's Special to his channel (along with special commentary videos previously only available on Soundcloud, blooper reels, and interesting Fact Bubble Specials inspired by ''{{AvatarTheLastAirbender}}'' with trivia about the show found nowhere else), which replaced the old Blip uploads on the Official Website.

* {{Irony}}: Part of Rubirules' plan was to end TOME. It does get shut down in the finale, but not for the reasons he hoped for.

** [[spoiler: Kizuna could count as well, but she's more of a case of Adaptational Anti-Villainy. She's much more cold and calculating than she was in the original, and is closely affiliated with the hackers whereas she dissaproved of them in the original version. At the end of the SeriesFinale, she attempts to delete SOFDTI (who had been established as a sentient being capable of thoughts and feelings) when Rubirules is defeated, but she does it because she [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds doesn't want to see Zetto hurt again]], and is [[TearJeker genuinely horrified when Zetto forcibly logs her out from the game, as she believed that everything she was doing was to protect him]]. ]]

* AdaptationalVillainy: [[spoiler: Neomutant and Rubirules, who were an unrelated AntiVillain and BigGood respectively in the original series, are now TheDragon and TheManBehindTheMan. Neomutant in particular actually seemed to care about Flamegirl in the original, eventually deciding IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy, but in this version he's a ManipulativeBastard DragonWithAnAgenda who thinks more along the lines of a {{Yandere}}, deciding that [[IfICan'tHaveYou If he can't have Flamegirl, no one can]]. He even goes so far as to say that [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything she had it coming]] when he [[MoralEventHorizon reveals that he was using her as a guinea pig for a dangerous Antivirus Weapon which would likely kill her, calling it a win for everyone]] "[[It'sAllAboutMe Except You]]".]]

* AdaptationalHeroism: [[spoiler: Execk, by virtue of his villainous characteristics being transferred to Rubirules. Zetto is also much more sympathetic in the reboot, being transformed from a power-obsessed AntiHero to a HeroAntagonist with a close personal relationship to the main characters (largely due to his character being fused with Kirbopher).]]

** The [[ArcNumber Arc Numbers]] 15 and 1111, both extremely significant in the original story, make cameo appearances here and there in the reboot. The episode count goes up to 15 (although there are actually sixteen episodes because one of them is "Episode 0"), and the time 11:11 is seen fairly frequently throughout the series when major events happen.
