* WellIntentionedExtremist: Everyone in the Genocide Project who isn't a murderous psychopath fits the criterion, since their mission statement is essentially to commit genocide to prevent it. [[spoiler: The maddened Fumiaki A.I. is a less-defensible version, unleashing a terrifying flesh-melting plague out of some mad belief that murder breeds progress.]]

** There is eventually revealed to be a way to achieve long-term, if not necessarily indefinite, AI stability. Unfortunately, it has a failure condition ''and'' imposes an effective upper limit on how smart the AI can be: [[spoiler: fool the AI into thinking it is human. This seems to mostly work for the Kentaro and Fumiaki [=AIs=], allowing them to last for ''years''... up until they find out what they are, at which point they begin sliding downward.]]

** Fumiaki [[http://www.genocideman.com/?p=481 later]] states that he intended to give her enhanced hormone responses, the empathy was a side effect. Meaning that her "super strength" is actually pure adrenaline.

* VillainousBreakdown: Lola starts doing rather badly after killing Kevin. It's subtle, aside from a brief breakdown, but she gets increasingly open about her ruthless acts afterwards. [[spoiler:And after Senegal and the rest declare war on G.U.S. and the invasion of the UK starts, she loses her goddamn mind entirely, remaining exactly as quiet as before while being willing to slaughter everything and everyone that isn't Jacob, who she merely maims]].

[[http://www.genocideman.com/?p=40 Genocide Man]] is the story of Jacob Doe, one of the titular Genocide Men, a man tasked with hunting out and destroying dangerous "ideas" in the aftermath of the Open Source Movement, when military secrets became public knowledge, a time period where every possible piece of scientific knowledge was available to everyone, which, among other things, resulted in a ZombieApocalypse in China, the extinction of the Jewish people (and all redheads), and the deaths of two thirds of the world's total population. Ideas can be very dangerous in a future where the technology exists to make even the most terrible ideas a reality. Jacob Doe is 98 years old, and has seen, and done, many terrible things... and his life is about to become much more complicated.

* EvilKnockoff: [[spoiler:During the invasion on Britain, Lola ends up creating half-baked Genocide Men from volunteering soldiers, who get all of the quick boosts but none of the infrastructural changes. The result is extra-quick soldiers about as fast as the real deal, but not quite as strong, and are assured to die eventually due to their lungs bursting apart from the strain. Even in this crappy state they manage to kill about 500 soldiers each, however]].

* TakingYouWithMe: If a Genocide Man is killed in the field, or if his genocide case is stolen, it releases a horrifically deadly "Retribution virus" to contain the situation by killing everyone around it in a city-sized radius.

** Part of the reason why [[AIIsACrapShoot AIs]] are so dangerous on going insane is that they follow the command to kill themselves rather faithfully, but tend to pick some ''very'' destructive methods to do so, including "Kamikaze every single plane in the area into my general location" and [[spoiler:"kill every world leader I dislike in front of Jacob Doe so he'll kill me"]].

* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: It's revealed the Genocide proyect, specifically Lola, did this to [[spoiler:China's Supersoldier project. They could've just shut down the project through sabotage, instead they subverted it to turn them into the aforementioned Chinese zombies, wiping out the project, its creators, its collaborators, everyone involved and the entire ''nation'' they lived in]].
