* ScheduleSlip: Generally averted, which is quite impressive given the quality of the art and how often the comic updates. Occasionally the author takes breaks or updates later than usual, but on the whole [=NofNA=] doesn't suffer from this too badly.

-->'' Animals have long been our cohabitants on this planet, but they have no structure in their lives apart from instinct.'' Homo sapiens sapiens ''has dominated the landscape thanks to its unsurpassed primacy in communication skills. But what forces fueled this engine?''

-->''It is the power of Art which the animals turn to in solving this problem. Ambitiously adopting the title of "man," they are determined to control Art and create a prosperous society for themselves. But Art is not easily understood, its powers dangerous and meaning fleeting. For to understand Art, the animals must peer into the depths of their own nature, and excise the animal itself, becoming human. Just how incredible is this feat?''

* {{Foreshadowing}}: When Pisaurina siccs a mantis on her, Lycosa briefly tries to scare it away by acting like a mantis herself, before realizing that's a stupid idea given the circumstances. After escaping, Lycosa remarks that it's cool in theory, but would probably only work with other spiders. [[spoiler: The Power Of I is a metanoia based on PowerCopying other spiders through mimicry.]]

* ImprovisedWeapon: Lycosa of, um, ''Lycosa'' uses plenty of improvised weaponry. Thanks to spiders being so much smaller than humans, a ''pill'' effectively becomes a gigantic club.
* InstantExpert: When major characters learn Metanoia/Telenoia, they tend to also learn all of their factures within the systems. [[spoiler:Most obvious when SV unlocks the Telenoia of Malice and Lycosa invents the first factures.]]
* [[IndividualityIsIllegal Individuality Is Outdated]]: Venom 8's plan to borrow eggsacs from every spider wasn't some diabolical scheme by they and their supporter's estimation due to this trope. Every one else was so thoroughly on board with it, it hadn't occurred to them that someone would object.
