!!Tropes include:
* AmbiguouslyGay: While Thor is clearly straight, various other cues leave Smith confused about this (his frequent use of deodorant, the neat, color coding system for his flip-flops in his closet, etc.)
* ApocalypseCult: The New Order.
* ApocalypseHow: Planetary. The New Order's plan is to [[spoiler:destroy the surface and all who live on it, with Smith to rule what is left as the Chosen Son]]. However, when the New Order's leader unleashes the nukes, it instead reduces the ''entire planet'' into space debris.

* BigRedButton: The one [[spoiler:Smith's father]] pushes to destroy the Earth.

* ChivalrousPervert: Despite his insatiable sex life, Smith is not a bad person. In fact, he tells London that making his partner cum is [[CasualKink his kink]].
* CollegeIsHighSchoolPart2: Stella describes college as being an intermission between High School and the rest of their lives.
* ThePoorlyChosenOne: Smith is believed by the New Order to be their Messianic chosen one meant to rule the world after they destroy it in a nuclear holocaust. Before the cult could get Smith to safety however, [[spoiler:the cult's leader sets off the nukes before Smith is brought to safety, destroying the planet entirely]].
* PsychicPowers: It is revealed that the New Order would take orphans and children who their parents give away that have "potential" and do a "procedure" that gives them psychic powers. [[spoiler:Smith, Lorelei and Oliver are just three examples of this.]]
* RenegadeSplinterFaction: The Resistance are former members of the New Order that defected and fight to prevent their apocalyptic agenda from coming true.
* WickedWitch: Stella's girlfriend Lorelei is a woman with supernatural powers who, after Stella breaks up with her due to a mix of her insatiable sex-drive and an unstable, clingy personality, supernaturally stalks and tortures Stella. [[spoiler:Later averted when it is revealed that she was actually a psychic, her powers and unstable personality a result of a procedure the New Order did to her.]]
