**** There’s Eris words to Kio when she meets him.

** For Planet of the Apes, there’s several more:
****
The original Planet of the Apes tech level novel had the Apes with highly advanced technology that was supposed to be very advanced. This is reflected by omitted from the films for practical (and cost-saving) reasons. With the Catians digital, space now taking their place and everything in text, they are restored to a high tech, digital age tech level, of science.
**** In the grand tradition of Nova, Aoi is a CuteMute until she speaks her first word,
which is more in line with also a very powerful SayMyName moment.
**** The name of
the original script.atom bomb being ‘The Omega’ and counting down to destruction of the entire planet ([[spoiler:though thankfully it turns out to be a dud, unlike its counterpart]] from Film/BeneathThePlanetOfTheApes).


* SequelHook: Catians are mentioned as [[CatsHateWater ''strongly'' disliking water]]. So their entire civilization is constrained to the island [[spoiler:of what was once Japan]]. With the help of Kio [[spoiler:and the humans, in the epilogue, they're considering venturing out into the Pacific Ocean and exploring more of the planet, possibly setting them up to meet other civilizations and creatures]].

!!Planet of the Cats contains examples of:

Added DiffLines:

* ChekhovsSkill: Early on, a throwaway line details that Kio was involved in transportation of Nuclear Weapons as part of his military history. This comes in handy when he later finds some humans worshipping such a bomb deep underground. [[spoiler:Subverted, in that he doesn't actually know how to disarm one. And double subverted when the bomb turns out to be a dud anyway.]]

* AfterTheEnd: Say it with me... it was [[spoiler:EarthAllAlong]].
* AliensSpeakingEnglish: Averted. Catians speak their own language, but have translator collars that allow them to understand and be understood by Kio. Played somewhat more straight with the Humans of the Era, whom Kio shouldn’t be able to understand, but inexplicably does.
* AmazonianBeauty: Manami, in sharp contrast to soft and demure Eris, is described as almost mannishly big and strong, though she compensates with BuxomIsBetter, compared to ACupAngst Aoi.
* AntiHero: Most of the human girls come across as this, but particular mention goes to Manami, whose downright prejudiced towards Cats and can curse up a storm even to Kio if she’s riled up enough.
* AntiVillain: Chancellor Kuune and Chieftan Maki seem to be this, pushing their respective factions to war, but really are more WellIntentionedExtremist with PoorCommunicationKills.
* BadassPacifist: Kio [[spoiler:ends the war without a single shot. Just one grenade (prepared to use it on himself, no less) and a RousingSpeech.]]
* CargoCult: The Omega, a bomb that is worshipped by Antonia’s little cult. [[spoiler:Thankfully, it’s a dud.]]
* CatGirl: The Catians, of course.
* CatsAreMean: Humans seem to think so.
* CatsAreSnarkers.
* CatsAreSuperior: Played with. Catians have superior tech and a bit of an attitude problem, but are really a kind and gentle race by nature.
* CatsHaveNineLives: Represented by the Nine Chapters, and also discussed with one lame pun, but otherwise not invoked.
* CreepyChild: Antonia, head of the Omega cult, who worship a nuclear weapon. Poor thing just wanted some love and affection.
* Crossover: [[Franchise/PlanetOfTheApes]]]] meets [[LightNovel/CatPlanetCuties]]]]. Arguably with more of the latter than the former, but neither franchise is completely spared. [[WordOfGod The Author]]]] admits that, in addition to the cute premise, using a mix of both franchises allowed for him to escape any continuity snarls.
* CuteBruiser: Just about everyone on the planet apart from Kio.
* CuteMute: Aoi. [[spoiler:At first.]]
* [[spoiler:DeadmanSwitch]]: [[spoiler:Kio uses a thermal detonator to threaten both sides with ending the war, or he’ll remove himself from the equation.]]
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Antonia preaches of a day when all will die in a bright wave of light, and then be reborn as beautiful and perfect beings.
* [[spoiler:EarthShatteringKaboom]]: [[spoiler:Thankfully averted, as the Omega was a dud. The author even admitted in his notes he was just trolling the readers with that one.]]
* EverybodyLaughsEnding: Chapter Eight, arguably the proper end of the story not counting the epilogue, ends this way.
* [[spoiler:EveryoneLives]]: [[spoiler:Kio ends a millennia-long war without a single loss on either side.]]
* EvolutionaryLevels: Catians apparently evolved from ordinary Earth Felines.
* ExoticExtendedMarriage: [[spoiler:The only fitting fate for the last human boy on the entire planet.]]
* {{Fanservice}}.
* FantasticRacism: On both sides, see PoorCommunicationKills.
* ForbiddenZone: Go on, ask why it’s called that.
* FurBikini: Human fashion at the time. Considering it’s only women left and the island is said to be very warm, it’s almost a justified trope, but the author confirms it was mostly for humor, parody, and fanservice purposes.
* GuiltyPleasure: The author readily admits the two source materials are some of his.
* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: Subverted. Although anxious to rise up against their Cat oppressors, the Humans are no more malicious than they, and rarely use lethal force due to being genuinely good people. It’s years of misunderstandings, plus the hopes of surviving without the other side, that pushes them to war.
* HumansAreWarriors.
* HumanPopsicle: Kio.
* HyperspaceArsenal: Catian tech can ‘digitize’ weaponry and tools. Aoi, also, by [[spoiler:virtue of being mutated by Catian radiation ([[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ShrugOfGod maybe]]).]]
* InnocentFanserviceGirl: Eris, though she can be forgiven since she’s lived almost her entire life in a society with [[spoiler:no boys]].
* InterspeciesRomance: Catians (ALL of them) just love Kio to bits, despite being human.
* LeotardOfPower: Catians wear them as a matter of course, skintight and very {{Fanservice}}y. Kio also wears one, albeit slightly clunkier, from his astronaut days. Most of the other humans have to make do with {{FurBikini}}s.
* LittleNo: When they hear [[spoiler:the countdown for ‘The Omega’ start up]], Kio has one of these.
* LowCultureHighTech: By virtue of the recently discovered “lost” technology humanity is using. Catians avert this hard.
* MaleToFemaleUniversalAdaptor: It’s even a loose explanation on how Catians continue to breed without male Catians... [[spoiler:by kidnapping human males]].
* MarryThemAll: Well, three at least, and [[spoiler:be available for ‘breeding purposes’ for the rest on a case-by-case basis.]]
* {{Meganekko}}: Quite a few of the cast still sport glasses, despite the Human cast at least having no explanation or need for them.
* MythologyGag: The original Planet of the Apes tech level was supposed to be very advanced. This is reflected by the Catians digital, space age tech level, which is more in line with the original script.
* NonActionGuy: Kio, of course. On a planet of Action Girls, it’s kinda hard to make any headway, but he manages to not be completely useless.
* NotSoDifferent: Both Catians and Humans. {{Lampshaded}} by Kio, who is startled nobody else has noticed.
* NubileSavage: Aoi, though most of the human girls qualify as well.
* ObliviousToLove: Subverted, Kio picks up some subtle hints, but he really panics when Eris and Manami outline that he’s [[spoiler:going to be little more than a glorified boytoy to an entire species. And later a whole planet. More like Oblivious to Incredible Lust.]]
* PoorCommunicationKills: If only the Catians had made it clear [[spoiler:they meant the Humans no harm with their efforts to collar and clean them, to say nothing of stealing away their men.]]
* {{Pun}}: Full of them, both in speech and in the writers own descriptions.
* PunctuatedForEmphasis: “There! Will! Be! No! Battle! Here!”
* PyrrhicVictory: [[spoiler:Kio threatens to kill himself if both sides don’t end their war, dooming whoever does ‘win’ to extinction.]]
* RockBeatsLaser: Well, equals at least, as humans make plenty of damage against Catian forces with rifles centuries old. Somewhat justified as Catian tech is not intended to be used offensively, and is generally non-lethal by design.
* SayMyName: [[spoiler:Aoi's first (and only) word is "KIO!"]]
* ShoutOut: Chock full of Sci-Fi and Cat references, mostly humorous in nature.
* SlidingScaleOfSillinessVersusSeriousness: Generally on the Silly Side, though flip-flops with alarming frequency during the Battle and Conquest chapters.
* TigerVsDragon: A motif commonly used symbolically between the two sides.
* TransformationSequence: Catian battle armor is equipped this way.
* UpToEleven: The original Cat Planet Cuties had Kio at the center of a fair-sized anime harem. This story [[spoiler:places him as the only male on the entire planet (that they know of)]].
* VerbalTic: Cat phrases pepper Catian speech.
* WarIsHell: In full effect, or at least strongly implied. [[spoiler:Thankfully, it’s stopped before anyone is killed.]]
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Kuune and Maki, both of whom have long since given up hope of a peaceful end to their conflict.
* WhiteAndGreyMorality: Nobody really wants to fight and kill, and when Kio [[spoiler:ends the war]], peace quickly comes to the planet with no lingering hard feelings.
* WorldOfActionGirls: Given there’s exactly one boy on the planet and the two dominant species are at war, the titular Planet of the Cats is this.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Catians have hair color in all shades of the rainbow. Remarked upon by Kio, who seems to be the only one who notices how odd it is. Humans tend to stick to more natural, earthy colors, to contrast the species.
