- Jean's inventions of jets and helicopters and Hanson's Graton technology seem like good additions to the world...until you realize that following the devastation of Paris, it's likely that a militaristic faction will come to power in France. Their World War I isn't going to be fun.
- Emperor Neo's demand that England surrender itself and place a white flag on top of the Eiffel Tower in Paris seems absurd - why make the demand with the Red Noah in Paris instead of in London, especially when there's no way the English would be able to put the flag up on the Eiffel Tower in time (this being the 19th century)? The demand was meant to be unfulfillable, so that Red Noah would have an excuse to lay waste to London, Paris and other human cities.
