- Animal Is the New Man: The webcomic is set on a future Earth where a nano-virus was used in World War IV to rid the Earth's surface of humans the virus is also believed to have caused the mutation of animals to a sentient, humanoid form.

- Creepy Souvenir: Toh collects tails from his "playthings" when they "break".
- Fantasy Counterpart Culture: Felines and Rodents are Chinese/ Japanese (Samurai, Ninjas and Kung-Fu Monks), Cows are British (a Visual Pun based on "Beefeater", felt hats and red coats, strong navy, Crystal Dragon Jesus religion), and Vampire Bats are, of course, Romanian/German (big, scary castles, heavy accents with the "W"s pronounced as "V"s).
- From a Certain Point of View: Jessica firmly believes that the noises she heard her mother and Toshubi made in the kitchen were the sounds of them "wrestling" and nothing more.
- HeelFace Turn: Masato decides to defect from the Empire after seeing firsthand just how brutal they are.
- Human Popsicle: Every human on the Arks. They're waiting for the Nanovirus to die off in 300 years, which translates to "two years awake-time".

- Shout-Out: To the Star Wars episode IV barfight.
