!! Leviathan (The novels)
* AngstWhatAngst: Alek copes with his parents' deaths really well... It's especially jarring in comparison with Deryn, who's still pretty broken up about her father dying two years before the start of the story.
* CrazyAwesome: Zaven. So much.
* HoYay: Loads [[SweetOnPollyOliver between Alek and "Dylan"]], mostly in ''Behemoth''.
* LesYay: Lilit. Her last line to Deryn before she leaves implies that she figured out that Deryn was actually a girl, and this is ''after'' she kissed Deryn full on the lips and said she was "just curious."
** "I know you better than you think, ''Mr''. Sharp." (Cue chuckling from Bovril.)
** It's worth noting that Deryn doesn't seem too bothered by it, either.
----> '''Alek:''' That girl is quite mad.
----> '''"Dylan":''' Aye. But she's not a bad kisser.
* NarmCharm: [[spoiler:Alek and Deryn's declaration of love at the end of ''Goliath'' is pretty cheesy, but it's pretty sweet as well.]]
* PortmanteauCoupleName: Dalek has become quite popular in the fandom for Deryn/Alek...no, not [[Series/DoctorWho that Dalek.]] Volger and Barlow also have Varlow.
* TearJerker: [[spoiler:Zaven's]] death.
* TrailersAlwaysSpoil: It explicitly states in the blurb of ''Goliath'' that Alek finds out about Deryn's true identity, and that she's in love with him. It also refers to "true love with a commoner," leaving little question of whether or not he'll reciprocate her feelings. It's particularly interesting since Westerfeld has enough track record [[{{Uglies}} breaking up]] [[{{Midnighters}} his couples]] to create legitimate doubt in those who've read his other books.

!! Leviathan (The Band)
* ArchivePanic: '''So many demos''', that's all we can say. And that's not even ''going'' into Jef's other projects such as Lurker of Chalice, his involvement with Twilight, and god knows what else.
* AwesomeMusic: '''Everything''', most have been recently labeling ''Scar Sighted'' as his best work.
* CreepyAwesome: Jef is the living embodiment of this.
* JerkAssWoobie: Jef for some fans. For one thing, you pity his problematic childhood and the loss of his girlfriend, but then you read about him assaulting his later girlfriend with ''his tattoo tools'' you will raise an eyebrow. It does end up going to an EarnYourHappyEnding when he got married and now is raising a baby girl.
* NightmareFuel: Jef's screams are unnerving at best, the music is very disjointed and just uncomfortable. Makes you wonder what goes through his mind to write this type of stuff...
* TearJerker: Oddly enough, in the VICE documentary ''One Man Metal'', Jef opens up about his struggles when he was a teenager writing his first two albums, and then explaining his depression about the loss of his girlfriend Jesse.
** Just when he talks about Lurker of Chalice and pauses when he mentions that the project had a "muse", only to pause and simply say... "…she’s dead, so I don’t think Lurker will happen again…" before looking away in sadness.
** The title track of ''Scar Sighted'' definitely counts. The instrumental sounds almost like a funeral dirge, and the vocals are mainly just tortured, agonized screams.
