* GreyAndGreyMorality: The characters, just like the world, are a mixed bag. While there are completely morally good people in the world, there are many more on the supposed side of good who build their power by exploitation, and some on the "bad" side that were only pushed in desperation. Propater tries to make themselves into an all powerful unified international government but have continually exploited and oppressed Latin American countries and other third world nations, Noma, and even the Colloid, which by all means is a deadly disease slowly wiping out humanity, [[spoiler:wants simply for humanity to take the next step in evolution.]]

Propater tries to make themselves into an all powerful unified international government but have continually exploited and oppressed Latin American countries and other third world nations, Noma, nations; Nomad does its best to combat Propater's wrongs but their biggest figurehead is a drug kingpin that thrives off of their business; and even the Colloid, which by all means is a deadly disease slowly wiping out humanity, [[spoiler:wants simply for humanity to take the next step in evolution.]]


* HumansAreFlawed: Leans more towards the [[HumansAreBastards Bastards]] side of the human debate, but this is ultimately the view on humanity we're supposed to take from the story. As cruel as we are to each other and to others, there are still pockets of people willing to do good, and that humanity eventually learns from its mistakes. [[spoiler:This is best exemplified in the end with Sophia--despite her being a negligent person in her youth, her disregard and abandonment of her children, and witnessing some of the worst humanity had to offer, she is ultimately the more capable person to direct the Colloid into the wormhole.]]

* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: Heavy on the cynical side. Any morally pure character who starts out such will either have all their ideals shot to pieces or they'll be another victim to the injustices of the world. The ones who struggle and survive in the world's underbelly don't get very far either, and while they still take advantage of others we learn often that their crimes will eventually catch up to them. [[spoiler:All that said, the manga ends with a surprisingly hopeful note--despite humanity's many, many flaws, Ennoia dedicates his dying speech to stating humanity deserves a chance to live and overcome their weaknesses, even if it takes entire lifetimes.]]

%% * FingerTenting: Tony, Kahn, Sophia, and Elijah, among others.


* AgeGapRomance: Both of Elijah's major romances feature this element. Loji attempts this with her teacher Kenji, but in the end their status is given a shrug.



* GildedCage: [[spoiler:Mana's kidnapping treats her rather well, all things considered. She has full access to food, warm and expensive clothes, still goes to school, and even has companions in Loji and Mana. However, she still can't leave, as if she does the nanomachines implanted in her body will be activated and kill her.]]

* FailedASpotCheck: [[spoiler:What ultimately leads to Mana's death. For most of her rescue mission, the team was aware that the nanomachines placed in her body were rigged to explode if she stays above ground where there's a signal. The arc ends with them disabling Demille, who held the trigger for the explosion, but more importantly still staying above ground.

** One flashback showed guerillas forcing civilians to traverse a minefield to make a statement. Focus was put on a little girl who stepped on a mine and wisely not move from it, but had her foot shot off to trigger the explosion anyway.
