* ShroudedInMyth: Earth seems to have suffered this somewhat. Meanwhile, memories of earlier human culture have become muddled enough that the '''''CthulhuMythos''''' is now thought to have been an actual (although defunct) religion. Hence planets and geological features [[ShoutOut getting names like Cthulhu, Nyarlathotep, and Shub-Niggurath.]]

* WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove: After three million years and counting, Kema's ''still'' trying to figure out love and other aspects of what Humans and Aquaans would call morality. It certainly wants to have them, but the concepts are still rather slippery. Its spawn Hurmiz has a much better grasp of the idea, at least where familial love is concerned, and among other Yogzarthu, Eigonshazar and Aradneth genuinely care about each other, even if their language will only let them name it "madness".

** ''One Deal is What We Made''. [[spoiler: In addition to Tal getting waylaid by Mormo, Kema reveals that it ''created'' the Aquaans.]]

* {{Depower}}: [[spoiler: Thanks to the way Seisha's HealingFactor works, this is what happens to any Yogzarthu who takes a bite out of her. The end result is the Yogzarthu in question--like Mormo--being indefinitely trapped as a clone of her.]]

* OlderThanTheyLook: Even with genetic engineering increasing the lifespans of anyone who takes it, [[spoiler: Seisha Dree takes it to unmatchable heights. The HealingFactor from her genetic modifications is so powerful that she ages ''extremely'' slowly. If at all.]]

* KillAndReplace: [[spoiler: What Mormo plans to do with Tal in ''One Deal Was What We Made''. Problem is, even without considering the Yogzarthu's poor understanding of Human and Aquaan mores, [[WhatAnIdiot Mormo could have learned from Kema that Tal was about to leave for Veras anyway]].]]

* YourApprovalFillsMeWithShame: When Tal's grandfather says he's sure the family will be in good hands when Tal returns to Veran, Tal immediately [[http://www.waywardmartian.com/harbourmaster6/036-036.html clutches himself in shame]] and assumes he'd done something horrible. [[spoiler: He'd demanded a clean break from the family for Anthemys in return for information that would completely destroy an aristocrat who'd sponsored piracy, illegal (on Veran) genetic engineering, and raising a clone as a sex slave.]]
