* HighTimesFuture: ''All'' drugs are ridiculously common due to improvements in medical treatment and the fact that [[DeathIsCheap drug abuse doesn't affect your ability to get resleeved]] -- as long as you're not the one stuck with an addict's sleeve. One example of this that annoys Kovacs in ''Altered Carbon'' is the body he finds himself occupying belonged to a notorious chain-smoker; while he partakes of numerous drugs, nicotine is one he abstained from, and throughout the book, he finds himself jonesing for cancer sticks.

One example of this that annoys Kovacs in ''Altered Carbon'' is the body he finds himself occupying belonged to a notorious chain-smoker; while he partakes of numerous drugs, nicotine is one he abstained from, and throughout the book, he finds himself jonesing for cancer sticks. In addition to all the drugs we have today, something called "tetrameth" is popular, and advances in chemistry have led to a bunch of new drug types - two of which (a synthetic testosterone and an extreme sedative) are important to the plot. At least some of these drugs are illegal, but enforcement doesn't appear to be a big priority for the police.

Added DiffLines:

* NoPeriodsPeriod: Averted. When Takeshi is [[spoiler: captured and put into virtual reality to be tortured, he is deliberately sleeved into a young woman on her period because the body will feel more pain compared to a male body.]]

Added DiffLines:

* EvilKnockoff: Takeshi Kovac's personality from when he was a young sociopathic thug is sleeved into a new body and sent after his older AntiHero self. According to the law you can only have one personality walking around at the same time, so he doesn't have any choice but to kill his other self or face [[FinalDeath Real Death]].


* HumanShield: In ''Woken Furies'', Anton uses an ally as a human shield when he comes under fire.

* TheAlcatraz: Rila Crags, the prison where Sylvie is taken in ''Woken Furies''. Only one person has ever broken in, Nikolai Natsume, so the Little Blue Bugs seek his advice for their rescue attempt. [[spoiler:They still end up getting caught on the way in; however, it was actually just a diversion for their real plan]].

** Don't go talking about religious aversion to re-sleeving to Takeshi Kovacs if you value your life. Also, a milder version occurs if you mispronounce his name as "kovaks" instead of the original Hungarian "kovach". If you do that, he won't like you. If he doesn't like you, he'll have much less restraint in doing nasty things to you.

* ACupAngst: Mari Ado from ''Woken Furies''. Kovacs notes that her bust isn't actually that small; she just has a complex about it.

Added DiffLines:

* TheMindIsAPlaythingOfTheBody: One character is shocked to find that she doesn't care as much when her lesbian lover is killed, because they don't have the same erotic chemistry when she's resleeved into another body.


* MultiethnicName: Takeshi Kovacs himself. Almost everyone born on Harlan's World is subject to this to some extent, being melting pot of Japanese and Slavic culture.

* ItIsPronouncedTroPAY: Kovacs realizes he hasn't been resleeved on the same planet he died on when he hears his name pronounced "Kova''ks''" instead of "Kova''ch''", as the working class on Harlan's World is predominantly Hungarian/Central European.
