* CoolGuns: Lovingly emphasized are the large holsters with large revolvers worn on nearly everyone's hips all the time.

Added DiffLines:

* BothSidesHaveAPoint: While Jack is correct in that over reliance on industry and technology will simply repeat the errors made that caused the Cataclysm in the first place and that generally make the Earth a toxic place to live in any case if allowed to progress unchecked, his opponents' contend that over reliance on the mechanics to the point of fanaticism and completely shunning technology designed to make human survival easier isn't necessarily a good thing, either.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Hypocrite}}: Jack openly opposes nearly all technology, seeing it as an evil that endangers the natural balance. However, he has no problem resurrecting mid-20th century gas guzzling cars that certainly contributed to pre-Cataclysmic Earth's pollution for his own enjoyment. To be fair, he's refurbished them to run on "slither guano", as in dinosaur excrement, of all things.


* AmazonBrigade: Big Red and her all-female biker crew in "The Wild Ones". Subverted in that the reason it's all-female is because a mystery disease wiped out the men in their population when they were still underground as opposed to them actively shunning men.

Subverted in that the reason it's all-female is because a mystery disease wiped out the men in their population when they were still underground as opposed to them actively shunning men. Not that this keeps Big Red and her crew seeing the men they do encounter (i.e. Jack and co.) as the weaker gender and expendable breeding stock.


->''"How did extinct species come back to life? Hard to say but it should be noted that it's at least consistent with some pre-Darwin theories attempting to explain fossils, which hypothesized grand life cycles affecting world-wide ecology over millions of years.\\
Whatever. It had dinosaurs."''

In 2015, Mark Schultz released '''''Storms At Sea''''', an illustrated novella which is not directly connected with ''Xenozoic Tales'' and is set in what appears to be the late twentieth century. But in a trope of RecursiveCanon, the characters in ''Storms'' find a prediction warning of the world becoming exactly as shown in ''Xenozoic'', including warnings of the causes of this dire future to come.

* ArtisticLicensePaleontology: It has to be admitted. Not because Schultz didn't know better, but because he very consciously chose to discard it to make a better story. Schultz dinosaurs, at least in the later issues, are actually very well-researched and as accurate as he could make them.

** Likewise, Gov. Gorgostamos seems [[AffablyEvil sympathetic]] to helping Hannah reach a peaceful resolution with Jack by meeting privately with him. It's a ploy to get Gorgostamos close enough to assassinate the mechanic.

* BitchInSheepsClothing: Gov. Nock starts out as a nice enough fellow, but gradually shows his opposition to Jack, Hannah's presence, and the Machinatio Vitae as the series goes on, to the point that he sycophantically sides with everything Scharnhorst says and does. ''Everything''.
