* AdaptationalSuperpowerChange: We don't see Linda's powers until late in the first season but they are different from the novel. [[spoiler: Instead of Dream Walking she has MakeSomeNoise.]] In the novel Conrad can produce different vapours, here he seems to be able to change the chemicals in the air around him. Peter van Syoc has the power to slow his body's functions down rather than being a Grafter. Monica only seems to have her super-strength and is not a flying brick.

* AdaptationalMundanity: The setting as a whole. In the TV series, people with superpowers are the only non-realistic element. The books featured an array of other magical and supernatural phenomena in addition to this, ranging from prophetic ducks to vampires to dragons, making them a full-on UrbanFantasy.

* HiveMind: Gestalt is quadruplets (identical twin boys, another boy, and a girl) who have one overall mind running all the bodies. The female body is named "Elena" and the male bodies are named "Robert", "Alex" and "Teddy" (the latter two are the twins), but they're really all one single person who exists in four places at once. They sometimes pretend to have different personality traits in the different bodies just to make others more comfortable.

* LaserGuidedAmnesia: Somewhat subverted. [[spoiler: Nazim.]] can wipe away memories of normal humans very easily and even specific traumatic memories. When he tries to do it with Myfanwy and later Monica it doesn't seem to go as well.
