** Rock crabs have rather alien viewpoints on the world, due to being SiliconBasedLife that are a prey species, but do not themselves eat (they passively absorb radiation); this makes them quite naturally cowardly, even though they are NighInvulnerable compared to carbon-based organisms and, in fact, they actively expose themselves to energy weapons or radiation leaks, since these feed them rather than hurt them. Early in the strip, Sid attempts to comfort and protect actual food, like cake and sandwiches, which he sees as being like himself, though he grows out of this -- it's only when he's fairly young and na´ve that he does so, and later in the series he has no problem fetching some cake for Vexxarr.

At one point, he also identifies a state of constant terror and paranoia as "being alive," entirely sincerely and innocently.

** Also [[spoiler: Sid while in Twee-space.]]

Added DiffLines:
* HyperspaceIsAScaryPlace: Played with. Normally there's not much different about hyperspace, but during an accident Vexxarr's ship ends up in an alternate dimension-hyperspace dubbed Twee-space where everything is LighterAndFluffier... [[GiantEnemyCrab except for Sid]].

Added DiffLines:
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Hyperspacing into Twee-space turns almost everything into one. The less cute it was, the more cute it becomes. [[http://www.vexxarr.com/archive.php?seldate=091415 If it already was cute though...]]

** The repair drones are completely undisturbed by the news they've been boarded by aliens that eat robots, [[OhCrap but fly into panic]] at the news that Vexxarr and Carl worked together on the plan to stop said aliens. --->'''Alarm:''' Red Alert! All drones to panic stations! Stand by for mayhem and high energy chaos! This is not a drill!

* VitriolicBestBuds: Despite being at each others' throats, when the chips are down, the crew ''do'' save each other. Eventually. They even have a movie night, they share cake, and they snark with one another more often than not.
