Added DiffLines:

* DistractedByTheSexy: Exploited by the resistance. The aliens have some weird tech that, somehow, melts the brains of those who plot against them. When they start to fall victim to it, one of them ordered to stop thinking about the aliens, to think about something else, ''anything''... and took some porn magazines lying around. "Think about '''[[MaleGaze THIS]]'''!!!"

Added DiffLines:

* NotSoOmniscientCouncilOfBickering: The world leaders are completely incapable to do anything against the aliens, and even agreed to give up South America to be spared.


* AlternateHistory / WriterOnBoard: The invaded country is not the "real" Argentina, it is an Argentina where the Montoneros had successfully "liberated" the country and established a socialist utopia (of course, there has been no president named "Andrada" in Argentina, nor a ruling Council). And, as said, Oesterheld was ''a member'' of Montoneros back then.

The invaded country is not the "real" Argentina, it is an Argentina where the Montoneros had successfully "liberated" the country and established a socialist utopia (of course, there has been no president named "Andrada" in Argentina, nor a ruling socialist Council). And, as said, Oesterheld was ''a member'' of Montoneros back then.
** The "Grone" Andrada is an {{expy}} of Juan Perón... or, more precisely, an expy of Perón as imagined by the Montoneros, rather than the actual Perón. Montoneros thought that when Perón returned from his exile he would lead the country to a socialist utopia and promote them to formal military ranks. Rather than that, he supported the right-wing faction of Peronism instead, and created an anti-terrorist group (the AAA) to destroy them. Still, Montoneros still deluded themselves in that Perón was their natural leader, and that his ministers were manipulating him.

Added DiffLines:

* BoringButPractical: The antartes can discover the resistance leaders and fry their brains with some unknown tech. The resistance discovered that they can block those things by wearing aluminium on their heads. But the antartes discovered the resistance at the workshop anyway. Not because of any alien technology: because their neighbours denounced them.

Added DiffLines:

* DoNotAdjustYourSet: The aliens took control of all radios and TV stations. You could not find a single one that was not repeating their omnious ''Cor-du-ra te-rres-tre, mag-na-mi-ni-dad an-tar-te. Cor-du-ra te-rres-tre, mag-na-mi-ni-dad an-tar-te''.

* ShooOutTheClowns: The guy in Antartica, talking with the radio to the base as he approached the base overrun by aliens, joked that he would prefer to be fishing in Tigre. Base control reminded him that his reports were being sent directly to the President of Argentina... and the United States, the Soviet Union, London, France, etc. An alien invasion is serious stuff!

* ShootingSuperman: Subverted. The aliens have shields that protect them from mundane gunfire. When Andrada declared war on the Antartes, the Council members all took out their guns and fired against the aliens at Casa Rosada. They fully knew that it would be useless, that the only purpose of their attack would be to go down fighting... and then, unexpectedly, the aliens WERE killed: it seems that their force field is useless inside walls.

Added DiffLines:

* KryptoniteFactor: The shields of the aliens do not work inside buildings.

Added DiffLines:

* NukeEm: The international reaction when the alien invasion became public. As guns are useless, all the atomic bombs in the world were aimed to the Antarte star at the same time... and nothing happened.

Added DiffLines:

* HotLine: When the alien invasion became evident, the hot lines between the presidents of all countries started to be used full-time.


* GreatOffscreenWar: There are several mentions to a US invasion attempt of Argentina, which was repealled by Andrada and the Council.
