* GrandpaGod: Sort of. Rev. Wilbur Brocklyn is a kindly preacher (who [[ShoutOut curiously]] resembles [[BruceAlmighty Morgan Freeman]] slightly) that [[BadassPreacher is known]] for the occasional [[TalkingTheMonsterToDeath psychological smackdown]] of his own congregation through his [[CharacterFilibuster bizarre sermons]].

*** Note: [[CaptainObvious The Ciem mask doesn't count as a hairstyle]], even though, according to the [[VideoGame/TheSims game engine]], [[spoiler: it is technically just a baldcap and facepaint, [[DontExplainTheJoke which is then treated with Photoshop to look more actually mask-like]]]].

* AutoErotica: Averted and parodied during [[spoiler: a [[AllJustADream dream sequence]]]]. Candi wakes up to find herself in the backseat of a Model T Ford...ALONE! And she has no idea how she got there, but is wearing a dress she doesn't recognize. Then she finds her much-alive(?) ex-husband on top of the ship they're on, [[{{Titanic}} raving like a complete idiot]].

In spite of coming out around the same time as Starline Hodge's much more popular ''{{Candi}}'', the two have nothing to do with each other, [[StrangeMindsThinkAlike in spite of some]] [[http://dozerfleetwiki2.wiki-site.com/index.php/Candi_Levens_vs._Starline%27s_Candi remarkable similarities]].

The trilogy initially began as an AffectionateParody of the Spider-Man [[Film/{{Spider-Man}} film series]], and was a SpinOff of an obscure comic called ''The Battle for Gerosha'', before becoming an entity all unto itself. Due to its heavy reliance on VideoGame/TheSims and related [[GameMod Game Mods]] as rendering tools, several tropes from that game are played with and repurposed rather freely.

*** One subversion: The undercover hairdo on chapter 2 page 7 is really a wig; so it doesn't count.



* HowDoIShotWeb: Subverted. Candi [[PossessionImpliesMastery has always instinctively known]] how to use her powers, but learns that they are much more difficult to use when she's pregnant. Other Centhuen Prototypes are also weakened by pregnancy, but to a much lesser extent.



* FetusTerrible: Subverted in Angie. She takes away her mother's powers and nearly gets her killed by Botan the Plant-Man, but also frees her mother from the psychoitc Kimiyato Hiriyama's Psychic Link. She even saves Candi's life, [[HeroicSacrifice but at the expense of her own]]. And does most of this before she is even born!



* [[IHaveYourWife I Have Your Boyfriend]]: Subverted. Candi never gets "The Call" about it from Musaran. She snuck in to the library and learned of the devious plan. And then, Donte himself confirmed it. In ''Ciem 2'', Vienna confirms to Candi that Aard has Candi's sister Miriam, and that Vienna herself has gone after them.
* ImaginaryEnemy: Subverted. Kimi is a REAL threat, but creates the illusion of herself as a ProjectedAvatar at times, just to torment Candi. Candi uses her religious faith to shield herself, which only annoys Kimi.



* KryptoniteIsEverywhere: Subverted. Bezeetol fuel is running low in production as it's expensive and Meethlite technology is evolving away from it. Yet, the villlains seem to find just enough of it lying around for Don the Psycho and Jeff the Invisible to attempt using it on the exact same heroes - in the exact same building!



* NeverSayDie: Inverted and Subverted. Musaran shouts it all the time, dead bodies show up everywhere, Arfaas talks of decapitating Flippos, and more. Yet, Jeraime manages to [[DisneyDeath survive his brush with electric death]], only at the expense of going blind.
** The sequels don't seem to mind use of the word either.



* YellowPeril: Subverted. Black Rat, Tin Dragon, and Stung Hornet turn out to be [[AntiVillain not such bad fellows]] after all. And [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg Teal Hog]], for some reason, [[MinionWithAnFInEvil can't even figure out that he's a designated villain]].

The series features the misadventures of the titular Candice "Candi" Marie "Stevens" Flippo-Levens-[=McArthur=] / Ciem, a teenage girl in 2019 who finds out that Phaelite aliens mutated her father while he was a baby, which allows her to have centipede powers. From there, she realizes that she is supposed to help her BigScrewedUpFamily battle their archnemeses: The [[FantasticRacism genocidal]] Hebbleskin Gang, made up of Meethlite aliens.
