* FalseUtopia: Nephilopolis. It's housed on a floating precursor titan and technologically advanced with cutting-edge biosynthetics. Then Kimiko learns about the credit system, where citizens and willingly participate in mandatory self-surveillance, their every move and thought recorded and sent to multiple departments designed to judge their actions, up to and including pardoning murder because it was properly recorded. Entire departments are "sent to the big farm upstate" as artists and freelance professors are found guilty of "supposedly stealing from a charity they don't support and have never heard of", with the Dark Scientists outright decrying the public for supporting a system that uplifts the weak, obedient, and foolish. Finally, it devolves into a full-blown police state as prisoners are executed, known rebels are unpersoned, and all of this is covered up with BlatantLies and redacted photographs on public news feeds. The whole thing comes crashing down into sheer anarchy in Act IV because Kimiko is busy fighting the Dark Scientists and cherry-tapped a few thin support beams during the conflict.

* EvilVersusEvil: The city of Nephilopolis is comprised of crazy {{Evil Luddite}}s and the Dark Scientists are a malevolent AncientConspiracy. They are also enemies with one another.




to:

* YouCanSeeMe: Balthazar is constantly followed by what looks like a hovering robot that frequently says "Radnar". When Kimiko asks him about it, he asks what in the world she is talking about and the entity asks this question word for word.

* WeaksauceWeakness: For some inane reason, the Dark Scientists can be slowed by [[spoiler:trapping them in a ring of water]], despite common sense saying they should be able to fly over it.

->'''Sokar''': ''I have issues with the Schrödinger's cat experiment. [...] In the period before observing the outcome, [the cat] is said to be in "superposition," a state of both decay and not decay, meaning [it] is both dead and not dead. Observer-dependent physics undermines the gods' decision three thousand years ago to ban cats from straddling the borders of the Netherworld. We won't have it!'' \\
'''Kimiko''': ''I have reservations about reconciling a quantum mechanics thought experiment with Egyptian mythology. More importantly, what possible threat could superpositioned cats pose?'' \\
'''Sokar''': ''Somewhere, Niels Bohr walks among us, unobserved and '''immortal'''''.
