** IronWoobie: Nick Dismas, the protagonist of ''Others''. [[spoiler: In his previous incarnation he was a borderline {{Complete Monster}}, and he was reincarnated as a deformed baby in order to redeem himself and gain entry to Heaven, but]] you'd have to have a heart of stone to hear his life story and not feel sorry for him.

* Complete Monster: Several notable ones; Dr Leonard K Wisbeech (''Others''), Nell Quick (''Once...''), Sir Max Hubble ('' '48''), Alexandria Moker (''Nobody True''), and Boris Pryslck (''The Dark'').
* DesignatedHero: Joe Creed of ''Creed''. Lampshaded by the narrator occasionally referring to him as "our hero" in a tongue-in-cheek manner.
* HighOctaneNightmareFuel: So, so many to list. ''Domain'' in particular, is pretty much nothing but High Octane Nightmare ''Rocket'' Fuel without any respite for either the characters or the reader.

* HighOctaneNightmareFuel: Herbert tends to deliver this by the truckload. ''Domain'' in particular, is pretty much nothing but High Octane Nightmare ''Rocket'' Fuel without any respite for either the characters or the reader. It starts off with [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill five nukes]] [[NukeEm being dropped on London]], then survivors being attacked and devoured alive in an underground rail tunnel by [[RodentsOfUnusualSize outsized, carnivorous mutant rats]], and [[ItGotWorse that's just the first act]].
