* InstantAIJustAddWater: "Any device complex enough to detect Martians is going to eventually become self-aware."
** Though this may be an intentional ploy on the Martians' part, since they built the machine in the first place. And [[http://project-apollo.net/mos/mos395.html Caprice does admit]] that they had to do a bit of bribery to make sure all the parts got installed.
*** Considering that the AI in question [[spoiler:nearly instantly rebuilds herself as a powerful combat robot that's more than a match for Haas's entire army]], it might be that those parts were for giving her capability to do so, not AI itself.

* {{Determinator}}: Benjamin is very stubborn man; he is more than willing to push through any kind of obstacle to achieve his goal. Best shown in the final face-off against Haas, with his response to YouCanBarelyStand. [[spoiler:Of course, once Haas surrenders and Benjamin has reached his goal, he promptly [[PostVictoryCollapse collapses]]]].

* AmericaTakesOverTheWorld: Well, not exactly the world, but they seem to have taken over Canada. And there's a space colony that's nominally in the US, contravening present-day treaties.
** Annexing nearby countries isn't just a US thing in the [=AMoS=]-verse, either; Peru has been absorbed into Brazil.

* GoodHairEvilHair: In addition to [[ScaryShinyGlasses his glasses]], as noted below, one sign that Haas has developed ScienceRelatedMemeticDisorder is that [[HairAntennae his bangs suddenly jut up and out]], managing to look like horns, or perhaps broken antennae.
** [[spoiler:Benjamin]] also has a different hairstyle when he's in mad science mode. Notably, he messes his hair back into this style when he relapses.

* GratuitousGerman: "Vorstellen Polizei" (the name of the "Vorstellen Police" that written over the entrance to its HQ) is baaaad German for "Imagination Police". The correct form would be "Vorstellungs-Polizei" or something like that.

* ShownTheirWork: Kilgannon and Sachs are both computer professionals and science geeks, and it shows, making ''Webcomic/AMiracleOfScience'' one of the hardest-SF webcomics out there. They're courteous enough to confine the worst of the infodumps to the "John/Mark Sez" columns beside the latest panel.

* TrojanHorse: [[spoiler: Sally the Martian detector]] and presumably other Martian technology that could be used against Mars. Although Caprice says Mars never does this with ''actual gifts,'' even to Venusians and even as useful as build-anything autofactories.

* MindHive: While referred too as a hive mind, Mars is more strictly this: a metapersonality based on the gestalt of all networked Martians as mediated by their data network.
* MissionControl: Mars plays this role on occasion.

* MemeticMutation: The author jokingly suggested that fans make the phrase, "Brazil has decided you're cute" into a meme. They took him seriously. It's largely died out now, but you'll still get hits.
