- Benevolent Precursors / Neglectful Precursors : The Delphi have helped some species advance (Armovors) while destroying others (Granthans).
- Designated Hero : Metran and Glyaxia Command. Although they're stalwart defenders of the Glyos system, they have their fair share of questionable actions, such as destroying the ancient Sincroid homeworld and trying to create dimensional gates for war.
- Eldritch Abomination : The Vilser, an extradimensional species composed mainly of tentacles who almost destroyed the Glyos system twice.
- Mascot : Pheyden (and later Hades) is the "face" of the Glyos line since he was the first created character.
- Massive Multiplayer Crossover : The Glyos joint system is used by several other toylines including Banimon, Outer Space Men, and Callgrim.
- Multiverse / Timey-Wimey Ball : the Glyos system has many "times and dimensions," including Phanost's timeline, the horrible Vilser-infested dimension of Bio Pheyden, Zorennor, and the Stealth Dimension.
- Homage : The folks at Onell love these.
- Kibbles And Bits : Some people use every single part of a set in their builds, which sometimes creates weird backpacks or huge guns with pieces sticking out everywhere.
