* ThisIsGonnaSuck: Jacob, when he finds out his contact is an AI, and an incredibly clever one at that. See AIIsACrapshoot above for details on why exactly this isn't good news.



* TooDumbToLive: Crosses with IdiotBall when an otherwise very intelligent character ignores the advise of everyone around, insists that the Genocide Project ''must'' have sent delegates to "negotiate", and rushes to the fence to meet them. No prizes for guessing the first person to be gunned down in the ensuing carnage.

* YouCannotKillAnIdea: The Genocide Project [[http://www.genocideman.com/?p=88 thinks they can]], and that [[WellIntentionedExtremist for the sake of making sure the world doesn't goes further into hell]], they ''must''.

** Unfortunately, they specifically say that killing and genocide NEVER go out of style.

Added DiffLines:

* ThisIsReality: Jacob's monologue to Giri about the prevalence of genocide: it's a tribal and human thing, which can use different methods and can even be pacifist in its mass-murders. The Genocide Project is simply an extremist, insane version of what was already happening for millennia; it's not going away even if the protagonists finish the project off.

* SuicideByCop: [[spoiler: Kenshiro]], having provided world leaders around the globe with the technology necessary to help humanity survive, [[spoiler: kills others, bombing many of their capitols, in an effort to force Jacob to destroy him before he goes ''completely'' insane.]]

* VillainProtagonist: the protagonists are trying to overthrow a one-world order that successfully brought about world peace, and though the GenocideProject is a pretty dark shade of grey there hasn't been a single on-screen ally of the viewpoint characters that was anything less than a complete monster. Jacob directly caused the latent flesh-melting plague by intentionally taunting an [[AIIsACrapshoot artificial intelligence]], something that he has stated outright always ends in mass destruction and insanity.
** His primary motivation is also that he's suicidal, and his main redeeming trait is that he doesn't actively intend to take everyone else with him. Usually. That's a really important "usually".

Added DiffLines:

* IdiotBall: The very same chapter features an American admiral making a series of truly stunningly-dumb decisions to showcase the threat posed by [[spoiler: the Kentaro A.I.]], and an otherwise-intelligent character arbitrarily assuming the troops sent by the organization with "Genocide" in its name to an enclave of gene-modded beings they've sworn to exterminate are coming to ''negotiate'' for no real stated reason.

Added DiffLines:

* JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope: Kevin does it pretty quickly, taking the advice that it's sometimes better to beg forgiveness than ask permission and promptly uses it to justify pissing off every nation on Earth while killing loads of people. [[spoiler: Kentaro decides it's probably why all A.I.s eventually go insane: when you're the smartest being on Earth, you feel an obligation to help. Then you realize that [[MurderIsTheBestSolution you can solve an awful lot of problems by killing people]]. Then you realize that [[WellIntentionedExtremist you can solve bigger and bigger problems by killing more and more people]]...]]

Added DiffLines:

* AdviceBackfire: The first time the audience meets Lola and Kevin, she offers him the advice that "its easier to ask forgiveness than permission" (referring to the recruitment of a new GP agent and how the rest of the GUS might react). He takes the first part (not asking permission) to heart way too well and immediately begins JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope while smugly reminding anyone who objects that he's well within his legal rights as head of the Genocide Project.


Added DiffLines:

* BaldOfEvil: Most of the Genocide Men are bald-''ing'' (given their extreme age), but Kevin is presumably sporting the full chrome dome under his horrendous toupee and is probably the most ''callously'' villainous of them.


Added DiffLines:

* BloodKnight: Joey. The guy had his license to carry a WeaponOfMassDestruction revoked because he was setting it off "for fun"


Added DiffLines:

* DodgyToupee: Kevin Kidd sports one. On an April Fools gag-page where all the characters appear only as their hair, he jests that he could take it off and become completely invisible.


Added DiffLines:

* UnitedNationsIsASuperpower: Or at least the UN's successor, the GUS (of which the Genocide Project is the only non-state member)
