* ValuesResonance: When the Lizards speak to humans with horror about males who use ginger to get females to mate with them, they are shocked when the humans (men and women) laugh it off. Given the problems with date rape drugs in our society today, modern readers are more likely to sympathize with the Lizards. Eventually, as is evident in ''Homeward Bound'', the humans' sensibilities evolve to match the lizards (and those of modern readers).

* MagnificentBastard: Otto Skorzeny. It's amazing how much you'll find yourself rooting for a Nazi commander. [[spoiler:This is until his ridiculous FaceHeelTurn.]]

* HeyItsThatGuy: Happens InUniverse late in ''Homeward Bound'' when Johnathan and Karen go to a movie and see an aged Creator/MattDamon playing TheMentor; this is a big shock to them since they were put on ice in 1994, when his career was just starting to take off.

* {{Deconstruction}}: of the entire alien invasion genre.



* MagnificentBastard: Otto Skorzeny. It's amazing how much you'll find yourself rooting for a Nazi commander.
* MotiveDecay: David Nussboym was originally a Lizard collaborator because he felt they were the best hope for Jewish survival in Poland, and because he hated the Nazis enough to override his concern that the entire would would become an outpost of the Race. Mordechai himself admits that David is an honorable and brave man, and that just because they have opposing viewpoints does not make him a greedy and self-serving fool. However, once David is sent to a Soviet ''gulag'' he becomes a collaborator solely to support himself, and betrays friends and enemies alike to the head of the camp in order to advance his own agenda. This would normally count as [[CharacterDevelopment a change in the character because of his surroundings]], but his own thoughts and memories now reflect on how he did the same things back in Poland and throughout his life, and his very nature is self-serving.
