** The high security: special containment wing plays this more straight, home to a roster of incredibly dangerous, mentally unstable parahumans. How dangerous? The first one we see is [[spoiler: ''Hatchet Face]] and worse yet it's implied he isn't the worst of them.

* [[spoiler: CloningBlues: Feral's attempts to use her regeneration for the benefit of medical science backfires horribly when her transplanted organs metastasize within the test-case patients and slowly transform them into incomplete duplicates of herself as her biology overrides their own. Even for those who survived the process, they are transferred into a hidden ward within Alchemilla.]]

* TheAlcatraz: Of a sort. Alchemilla originally filled a role similar to the Birdcage. It still has some of the trappings (and specialized equipment).

* InsaneEqualsViolent: Played with. While many patients are dangerous, the danger has no direct correlation to insanity and not all the patients are actually ''insane''. Many simply possess powers with negative repercussions, or powers that are extreamly dangerous. Sveta is a choice example, as she is very violent, but perfectly sane, as it is entirely her power's doing. Burnscar is somewhat less violent, but also has mental and emotional problems to match.

* ThePowerOfFriendship: One of the centeral themes of Bird is that people are more than their flaws. Taylor's perspective always hints at more under the surface, beyond any violent outbursts, or inability to talk. Her willingness to look past sometimes glaring difficulties and cultivate the good she sees is what gathers her the TrueCompanions her friends all become.

** Professor Haywire might also count, as he voluntarily took up residence in High Security and provides the facility with tinkertech in exchange for protection.

Added DiffLines:

* EmptyShell: Charnel is largely viewed this way by Alchemilla's inhabitants. [[spoiler: It's revealed that her passivity and physical augmentations were the result of Professor Haywire experimenting on her.]]


Added DiffLines:

* MoodWhiplash: Taylor tries to bond with the Case 53s by joining them for a livestream of Peat and Fen. At first it seems like it will be a lighthearted bonding experience, with the stream featuring a cartoon opening and Feral gushing over Peat's adorable preteen antics... Until the camera pans to reveal both kids were horrifically injured by the Fallen and only survived due to Haven's intervention. The group does not take it well.


Added DiffLines:

** Professor Haywire might also count, as he voluntarily took up residence in High Security and provides the facility with tinkertech in exchange for protection.


Added DiffLines:

** Mimi's past and trigger event are very similar to the plot of [[spoiler:''Literature/{{Carrie}}''. Both are high school social outcasts who unleash their superpowers on their classmates after a traumatic incident on prom night.]]


Added DiffLines:

* TomTheDarkLord: The Horde, Professor Haywire's EvilTwin created as a byproduct of his gruesome experiments on his alternate selves is a powerful supervillain incarcerated in Alchemilla's high security area. He's apparently so powerful [[spoiler: Professor Haywire, who is speculated to be on ''Hero's level'' willingly let himself get locked up for the extra protection of superheroes from him.]] His real name? Kevin, apparently.


Where many ''Literature/{{Worm}}'' fanfictions are about [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome spectacle]] and others are about [[RevengeFic some kind of proxy revenge]], ''Bird'' takes a more nuanced perspective. The story contrasts many of the themes in ''Literature/{{Worm}}''. In place of physical and authoritative threats, there are a series of emotional and mental threats. Where ''Literature/{{Worm}}'' was about ever-increasing spectacle, ''Bird'' is about subtlety.
