YMMV / Terinu

  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: Terinu, strapped in the power core of a Wave Motion Gun, activates his power to set off a series of planted explosives to destroy it. While he's in the middle of the thing. Which leads to the quote above.
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming:
    • After the above incident, when Leeza, a human engineer who had just met him a few days before, reassures Terinu that "of course" they came back for him.
    • A little later, when Melika finally sees Teri again after being forcefully separated from him for seven years, and she gives him a tight hug and a grateful, "You're alive!"
  • Ho Yay: Again, Matt and Terinu, courtesy of far too much fan speculation.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Admiral Blake crosses this When he orders Terinu's assassination.
  • No Yay: Cyeman/Gwen. Full Stop.
  • The Woobie: Terinu and his best friend, Matt, who was indentured to a pirate when he was eight to pay for his dad's debts.
  • What Do You Mean, It's Not Political?: The comic's author hails from the Land Down Under, where there's a painful history between the native Aborigines and the white settlers and the main plot of the comic concerns the return of a technologically superior race that originally invaded the Earth to bring "Civilization" to it.
  • Woobie Species: The Ferin. Genetically engineered slaves with built-in dyslexia and incapable of refusing a direct order by their masters. Leads to Fridge Horror when you throw in they have the bodies of adult but the build and faces of children...
