* FridgeLogic: "Tubes" of soda, presumably plastic. Apparently the point is to say, "Look at us, the future isn't so enviro-meanie as to use ''cans''." But, aluminum is ''far'' easier to recycle than plastic (PennAndTellerBullshit has a good rundown on this). The supposed "eco-friendly" solution, in a world that is practically eco-''fascist'', is actually the ''less'' friendly solution.

* JerkSue - Eve is rude, confrontational, antisocial, and has rage issues. She admits to delighting in upsetting people and making them hurt or angry, and using her position to do so... of course, [[ProtagonistCenteredMorality anyone who did the same thing to someone she cared about would be first on her Shit List]]. Threatening her friends and loved ones with bodily harm and humiliation is standard, and in-universe considered part of her charm. Any time she interacts with someone she knows well there's at least a fifty-fifty chance she's going to insult them deeply. And... well, honestly, this is longer than necessary already, you get the idea. With that said, ''New York To Dallas'' and stories after that have Eve beginning to realize that her {{Jerkass}} tendencies come from her biological mother, and that she may decide to tone them down a little, if only to act a little less like her mother.
* MarySue - Eve. Even if you don't agree that she is in execution, tell someone you know that you're reading a series about a female cop in the future who's pretty much the best police officer in the city, who constantly has bad guys work their entire plans around challenging themselves against her, and who is married to a drop-dead gorgeous guy who's the richest man in the universe.
* MarySuetopia: Parts of New York come off as this. But that's got nothing on the parts of Dallas, Texas that Eve goes to in ''New York To Dallas''. Those parts are so...perfect, sweet and squeaky-clean that Eve finds them a little creepy. It seems to serve the purpose of contrasting and highlighting just how vile, unnatural, monstrous, heinous, and disgusting Sylvia Prentiss and Isaac [=McQueen=] really are!
* PuritySue: Troy Trueheart is this, so very much! His purity had a LampshadeHanging put onto it more than once. In fact, ''Portrait In Death'' had a guy murdering [[PuritySue Purity Sues]] because he truly believed that by doing this, he would absorb the light of their pure souls into himself and never die, as well as show everyone else that they can avoid dying if they did this. Troy Trueheart almost ended up as one of his victims, in case you were wondering.

** [[spoiler: Eve's mother]] is hinted to be this a few times throughout the series, and is fully revealed to be this in ''New York To Dallas''. [[spoiler: For starters, Stella is apparently not her real name. In fact, she has also gone by the names Sister Suzan, Sarajo Whitehead, and Sylvia Prentiss. She may not even have a name. She is a drug addict and engaged in prostitution. She also boosted cars, and ran all sorts of cons. She had consensual rough sex with a guy and pretended to be raped so she could get close to one rape counselor and eventually kidnap her. She partnered up with Richard Troy and had Eve Dallas just so she can get money. She stole Troy's money and ran off, knowing what Troy was going to do to Eve and considered Eve worthless, detestable and not worth remembering. She partnered up with pedophile and CompleteMonster Isaac [=McQueen=] to kidnap people and try to help Isaac get revenge on Dallas. She thought she would get loads of money, and she actually loved Isaac. She hates everybody and everything, and she slashed the tires of a man's car just because his wife made a comment about the illegal drugs she takes. She has no qualms about teaming up with pedophiles, and would apparently watch a rape without blinking. When she got caught and restrained, she broke out and killed a cop without a second thought. She apparently has no FreudianExcuse for her behaviour, and it could be that she was always like this to begin with. Really, her death at Isaac's hands was no more than her well-deserved comeuppance]].
