- Author Tract: The lead developer for most of the line's run was a gay man with issues, most of which showed up very heavy-handedly in the background materials. Expect any gay character to be in some way uber-powerful and/or infallible. Conversely, any conservative/hetero-normative types will inevitably be some breed of foolish bigot who will eventually get shown up... hard.
- Canon Sue / Villain Sue: Divis Mal, so much. He's like Magneto, but he's canonically right, he's on an entire different power tier compared to most of the setting, he has the ability to depower or empower other supers at will, and basically the entire plot is caused by and guided by him, with the players having no capability to effectively disrupt his goals, let alone attack him effectively. At one point, supposedly, one of the developers said that the title of the game, Aberrant, referred to Divis Mal specifically.
- Pretty much any gay male character is destined to be a Sue of some sort and any other type of LGBT character comes close behind.
