* OurElvesAreBetter: On two levels; the HOH universe has at least one magic using race of humans called elves...apparently as an insult because they resembled elves that already "existed" in the Empire's mythologies.

* OurHumansAreDifferent: Humans are able to use magic and can also randomly have strange hair colours (the latter typically being from being born in high magic areas regardless of if the person in question has any powers). The setting's [[OurElvesAreDifferent elves]] are a race (in the non-Tolkien sense) of humans with [[PeopleofHairColor green hair]], skin and GreenThumb powers who're called "elves" as a slur by TheEmpire.

* IHaveNoSon: It's not uncommon in Justopea to disown children if they manifest magic abilities, because of fear and hatred of magic. [[spoiler:Noah's mother does this.]] Presence of any legal guardian seems to severely limit what Justopean government people are allowed to do to magical children.

* ApocalypseHow: Emergence of magic a few decades ago. Worldwide societal disruption or even collapse in some places. Many areas effectively reverted to feudalism and many technologies were lost, such as making [=TVs=] or robots, as told [[http://neorice.com/hoh_tobi_843 here]].

** [[http://neorice.com/hoh_burk_735 Iron Judge]] and [[http://neorice.com/hoh_burk_1088 Piper]]. Note that the teenage girl and an old man use different names for similar spells.
** Pablo names his diplomatic [[http://neorice.com/hoh_burk_653 "weapons"]]. Strictly speaking, [[http://neorice.com/hoh_burk_507 some]] of those aren't attacks.
** RealityEnsues for Adell the rogue. Calling a "[[http://neorice.com/hoh_burk_653 secret attack]]" kind of defeats its purpose. Unless she wanted to scare Pablo off.
** Same for Aristocrat [[http://neorice.com/hoh_burk_670 against Burk]].



* CrazyPrepared: Pablo with his "diplomatic weapons". This is said to be true for all Livarian diplomats.

to:

* EyeColourChange: In Tobi's chapter, someone looking at a menu has their eyes shift to the colour of the menu. [[WordOfGod The authour said]] that other people may notice blue sparks in Tobi's eyes -- but only if they look very hard.



* HiddenElfVillage: Tobi's hometown, Rauel. Almost a TreeTopTown, but instead of trees it's built on metal pillars and platforms -- to stay safe from desert predators. Inhabited by pointy-eared people with some unconventional abilities.

* MentalWorld: [[spoiler: Noah's power turns out to be able to enter these. So far we've seen Detlef the elf's (an abstract memory of the first time he met Empire soldiers) and "Home" (which is presumably Noah's own mind, in the form of a subway station).]]
