* CompleteMonster: The [[MadScientist evil scientist]] Thatcher Redmond originally comes across as just a SmugSnake with a nihilistic worldview, but only pages after we meet him, we find out that he [[OffingTheOffspring killed his love child]] to avoid paying child support. He drips with contempt for humanity, and when faced with the incredibly deadly Henders life forms, he sees the opportunity to advance his plans. [[spoiler: He leaves his fellow scientists to die on Henders' Island, does everything he can to eliminate the intelligent and gentle Hendropods, and indisputably crosses the MoralEventHorizon when he releases five Henders Rats onto the ship with the intention of unleashing them on an unprepared humanity. The guy's as close to an OmnicidalManiac as a normal human villain can get. ]]

** In Pandemonium, [[spoiler: Kuzu is a far more sympathetic villain than Thatcher Redmond ever was, but by the time he's become convinced humanity needs to be wiped out with Henders fauna so he and his fellow Sels can inherit the Earth, he's well over the line of no return.]]


* CompleteMonster: [[spoiler: Thatcher.]] Although it's steadily implied he's a {{Jerkass}}, it really starts to become obvious when he [[MoralEventHorizon kills his own 2 year old son]] because he didn't want to be bothered by child support or the harm a love-child could bring to his career. Also he tried to destroy the human race.

* NightmareFuel: UpToEleven. Mantis shrimp the size of eighteen-wheelers, spiders that dwarf saber-toothed tigers, worms that burrow into your eyes, trees that drink your blood... this is arguably the most horrific LostWorld ever created.

* DesignatedHero: Geoffrey Binswanger. Despite spending most of the story at a university mocking the existence of the island where the other main characters endure great dangers and suffer the loss of many friends, he is clearly set up as a hero who gets the girl despite only showing up in the third act and doing almost nothing heroic.
