* UnfortunateImplications: Merle, a white [[{{BadCopIncompetentCop}} cop]], beats a [[{{BroughtDownToNormal}} defenseless]] Donte, a black man, [[{{JackBauerInterrogationTechnique}} for information]].
** And the Flippo girls, in defiance of Erin's prudery, seem to measure their worth largely by [[AcceptableFeminineGoalsAndTraits how competently they can end up in a lasting marriage]]. Not too terrible though, since the men they marry measure themselves by the same standard.
** Andrew the Truck Driver, a black man, hates Mexicans.
*** Edited out of the Mod The Sims Social syndicated version, to avoid breaching the site's rules that stories cannot depict (mundane) racism.
** The only character that is made obvious as a lesbian [[{{BuryYourGays}} dies]].

* TheWoobie: Candi, in some ways, though her {{Wangst}} may get a little annoying to some readers. At least at first, [[{{TheChewToy}} the universe just seems to hate her guts]].
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds / {{Emo}}: Jeral/Botan, especially when being controlled by an AI backvisor.

* SatelliteLoveInterest: Not deemed canon in-universe, but neither of Candi's husbands gets very much CharacterDevelopment outside of their relationship with her; so, to the readers/audience at least, Donte and Denny may appear somewhat shallow. Made worse by the fact that if they ([[InvincibleHero especially Donte]]) [[HowToStopTheDeusExMachina weren't forced out of her life]], ([[PutOnABus temporarily]] or [[ThePlotReaper otherwise]],) [[AnthropicPrinciple there wouldn't be much of a plot]].

* FetishFuel: A LOT of it. (Though a lot of it not intentional.) [[{{MsFanservice}} Candi herself]], a [[{{Expy}} composite recycling]] of a lot of [[AuthorAppeal similar protagonists]] written by the author in previous works, is almost a [[FetishFuelStationAttendant virtual landmine]] for fetishes. Her sisters allow for [[{{Foil}} alternate takes]] on basically the same character type, showing what Candi herself would be like with fewer morals.
** First off, there's the centilegs. There are [[NaughtyTentacles a LOT of ways]] [[BoundAndGagged to use]] those things besides [[TheyFightCrime crimefighting]]. Yet, it's left to the [[FreudWasRight reader's imagination]] whether or not [[ReedRichardsIsUseless she ever intends]] to [[PowerPerversionPotential explore the possibilities]].
*** They're much shorter in the book, but that only slightly affects the PowerPerversionPotential.
** Also, several scenes in ''Ciem 2'' are sheer ''[[EyeCandy Eye]][[IncrediblyLamePun Candi]]'', where Candi [[HeroicSelfDeprecation beats herself up mentally]] over things as trivial as [[ForgottenPhlebotinum buying a box of condoms that she seldom bothered to ever make use of]].
** She also gets arrested a few times, [[SelectiveEnforcement often over very trivial things]], most of them [[BadCopIncompetentCop not even]] [[LawfulStupidChaoticStupid actual crimes]]. But she always looks sexy being hauled off.
*** Miriam has at least one moment of this too.
** The whole narrative's subtext can be rather [[{{Lime}} Limey]] at times, as the whole point of some chapters is Candi dealing with her [[CantHaveSexEver romantic/sexual frustrations]]. Yet, the series takes pains to never [[{{Lemon}} cross that fine line]] into being [[{{Squick}} too explicit]] about [[IkeaErotica certain details]].
