** Probably an involuntary example, but the genetic wombs in which the citizens of Romdeau are created are incredibly similar to the Looms of the Literature/{{Doctor Who: Virgin New Adventures}}. Said Looms create genetically identical (if coming from the same Loom) individuals (called Cousins due to their identical DNA) and, as a means of keeping the population stable, the individuals created this way are sterile. Moreover, there cannot be more than ''forty-five'' people born from the same Loom living at any given time.

* ApatheticCitizens: [[spoiler: Everyone in the mall is weirdly chill when a BDSM-looking monster casually plows through a crowd of people. They do start panicking later on, but it's when the monster ''has already left'' the scene. It's not a case of Vincent and Monad moving too fast for people to react to, either. A few passersby can be seen moving aside when Vincent gets near them. Romdeau citizens are so used to a Utopian life that the carnage is incomprehensible to them.]]
