* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Honestly, The [[MalignantPlotTumor Maglignant Plot Tumor]] that is [[spoiler: the slake moths]] can be seen to have taken away from the perfectly workable story of a scientist and his artist girlfriend trying to make their way in a poor and hostile fantasy world.

Added DiffLines:

** ...It gets ''far'' worse. [[spoiler:Even though he saved Isaac's lover and helped destroy the slake moths, when Isaac realizes his crime, he abandons poor Yag. He's so broken by Isaac's betrayal that he ends up mutilating his avian body out of shame, tearing out all his feathers, and commits to living in New Crobuzon for the remainder of his life as a man.]]


Added DiffLines:

* TearJerker: [[spoiler:Lin's state by the end. Her human body is half-emaciated, bruised, and broken while her head beetle has had its eye crushed, legs broken, and wings ripped off, with which she used to show her trust to Isaac in the beginning of the novel. Even then, she is still happy to see Isaac after he had forsaken her. Also, Yagharek by the end.]]

Added DiffLines:

* MoralEventHorizon: [[spoiler:Kidnapping an elderly terminal patient and using him as bait to attract the slake-moths]] is an InUniverse MEH for Derkhan and Isaac. Derkhan comes up with several ways to justify the act, but rejects all of them because she knows there is nothing that can truly excuse what they're doing.

* NightmareFuel: The [[spoiler: slake-moths.]] Also, imagine for a minute what it's like to be [[BodyHorror Remade]]. This is ''standard operating procedure'' in New Crobuzon, even without the wars/experiments/commercialized slave-labour the government will happily use the Remade for. Actually, scratch that, [[CrapsackWorld the whole of Bas Lag is]] NightmareFuel.

* JerkassWoobie: Yagharek turns out to be a [[spoiler: [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil rapist]]]]. He is also one of the most decent people in the story, [[TheAtoner The Atoner]] and has had a pretty terrible life after his (admittedly deserved) punishment. [[ItGotWorse It doesn't get better...]]
