* TheWoobie: Flinx's alienation from the rest of humanity is played for all the {{Wangst}} that it's worth and then some, especially in the later novels. At times he crosses into Sympathetic Sue territory.

* InferredHolocaust: Better hope nobody lives in the universe which [[spoiler: Flinx dumped the Great Evil into at the end of ''Flinx Transcendent'']]. Also, once [[spoiler: the Great Evil]] has been dealt with, what will happen if [[spoiler: the Xunca decide it's safe to return to their original galaxy and kick out the squatters?]]

** Lord Dominic Estes Rose, a major villain in ''Bloodhype'', is a drug dealer who trades in substances other dealers won't even touch, like the titular bloodhype. Like Challis, he enjoys torture, and responds to news of the escape of a set of captives by crushing some songbirds in a cage. He then attempts to blackmail the [=AAnn=] on Repler by threatening to release his stash of bloodhype in their compound, horribly killing all of them, and manages to provoke the [=AAnn=] commander into declaring him the most disgusting being he's ever seen. His hubris reaches its pinnacle when he attempts to sell humanity out to [[OmnicidalManiac the Vom]] in exchange for his survival, and promptly dies.

** There's a particularly memorable scene in ''Bloodhype'' when Dominic Rose crushes some exotic birds in a cage, not to mention the description of the effects of the drug itself.
