* AbuseIsOkayWhenItIsFemaleOnMale: A particularly horrible example occurs when Ethaynia [[GroinAttack castrates]] Hermaz in [[DisproportionateRetribution response to a snarky question about her love life]]. Admittedly [[GoodThingYouCanHeal it's not permanent]], but still.

* NonhumanHumanoidHybrid: S'ket is a [[CatGirl Panthean/Nemean hybrid]].


Added DiffLines:

** Later bios make it clear that this trope is very much in effect, such as spelling out that S'ket's desire for acceptance from her Nemean relatives is reflected by her power to [[SummonMagic conjure energy constructs in the form of lion companions]].


Added DiffLines:

* UnfazedEveryman: Huang's bio specifically states that he gets along just fine with the more alien Tytans, despite being an ordinary feudal Chinese peasant. "He finds things about them that he can relate to."

** Apparently [[spoiler: this rule has some exceptions, as Ekidna and Typhon, hailing from the same race and being granted similar powers were able to sire a viable offspring. They just didn't believe that]]
