** In the Prequel, it is stated that law enforcement in the United States are given the order to shoot the Capped on sight. Fast forward to the Rodney King incident, the death of Michael Brown, the death of Freddie Gray, the Ferguson unrest, the Baltimore protests, etc.

** There is one in the Prequel as well. It is heavily implied that when the second wave of Tripods were destroyed, the Trippies surrounding them were slaughtered as well.

* InferredHolocaust: Realistically speaking, the fate of Hans in ''The City of Gold and Lead''. He is alone and disabled on an island, that is NOT self-sufficient, with no means of traveling to the mainland. The Capped mainlanders have no reason to care about him or render assistance. It's painfully obvious that he will starve to death, and, given his expression as Will and Beanpole are leaving, he clearly knows it.

* GirlShowGhetto: The novels have almost no female characters at all, because at the time they were written it was generally accepted that girls would read books with boy main characters, but not vice versa. The TV series goes a bit over the top in compensation with the three boys meeting an entire family of girls, and in season two Will and Beanpole find themselves a couple of very willing bridesmaids while on their way to the Games.

* TakeThat: ''When the Tripods Came'' is supposed to have been inspired by an actual critic complaining that the Tripods could only scan in the visible light region.
