Added DiffLines:

* FailureHero: Quite often the heroine completely fails to accomplish her original objective, having only accomplished mowing down tons of random goons in gory and horrific fashion. Sometimes she even ''dies partway through the episode'' on account of her own stupidity and clumsiness and the episode just carries on without her.

The show was made into a [[Film/AeonFlux live-action movie]] in late 2005 starring Creator/CharlizeTheron, in which [[AdaptationDecay the plot, characters, themes and artistic style were unrelated enough to the original series]] to cause the original creator to feel humiliated when he saw it. A licensed tie-in game was made to try and link the two, [[TheProblemWithLicensedGames but that didn't end well;]] a movie tie-in comic by Creator/DarkHorseComics was a little more successful at capturing the feel of the original show, however.

* PragmaticAdaptation: The videogame. The creators were obviously fans of the original series and did their absolute best to try to capture the feeling of it, using many designs and plot references from the cartoon. Still, as it was produced as a movie tie-in, they had to include several character designs and plot points from the film (particularly the use of Charlize Theron's voice and likeness for [=Æ=] instead of the actual voice actress and character design from the show), much to the game's detriment.

The actual content proves even stranger than the art--our lead character is a highly self-motivated secret agent doing spywork (or possibly just sabotage in the name of anarchy), and is {{Stripperific}} to pretty much the greatest conceivable extent. Her arch-nemesis and lover, Trevor Goodchild, is also a main character; a morally-ambiguous totalitarian ruler attempting to be a benevolent dictator.

Possibly the best way to describe ''[=Æ=]on Flux'' is that if you had ever seen it before, you would be able to recognize it immediately. The art style is a strange combination of [[GermanExpressionism Expressionism]], CyberPunk, and Gnosticism. One of the most enduring images of the series is that of a human eye staring at a fly that is trapped in its eyelashes, wherein the eye's iris rolls in to stare at it. The episodes would attempt to use the art style to further the viewer's interest as opposed to wordiness. The early shorts had no spoken words to speak of, unless you count a single "plop". As a whole, the show was a thorough {{deconstruction}} of action hero tropes and cliches.
