At the end of each of the five successful voyages, as a collateral damage, humanity brought back Five Great Calamities: the weapon Brion, the gas life-form Ai, the two-tailed snake Hellbell, the human feeding beast Pap, and the immortal sickness Zobae Disease.

|Statistics of the Five Calamities|
|Ferocity||Number||Fertility||Destructivity (Bodily Harm)||Overall|

|Ranking of Dangerous Creatures |
Highest (A) → Lowest (E)
|Agression Towards Human||1) Attacks without provocation.|
2) Ecology or behavior endangers many lives.
|Species ranks A under certain conditions (climate, food source, exposure to chemicals).||1) Individual differences.|
2) Individuals can rank A under certain conditions (smell of blood, under threat, breading season, defending young).
|Passive: sudden encounters may provoke a defensive or evasive attack (emission of gas, liquid, needles, body slam).||None.|
|Number||One nest, host or herd numbers in 10,000 or more.||100s-1,000s.||<100.||<10.||Individuals.|
|Fecundity||Explosive growth once breeding begins.||1) Breeds several times a year, with >10 young.|
2) Conditions can put the species closer to A.
|Comparable to that of humans.||Long intervals between matings, with few young.||Does not reproduce, or at low enough frequency to be negligible.|
|Threat of Bodily Harm||1) High probability of death.|
2) Injuries affect daily life, complete recovery difficult, lifelong aftereffects.
|1) How to avoid them is known, but failure leads to serious injuries or death.|
2) Complete recovery difficult, lifelong aftereffects.
|1) Long-term rest and treatment is necessary. Death is also possible.|
2) Indirectly affects many lives (damage to crops, livestock).
|1) Does not affect daily life, but mild aftereffects or scars remain.|
2) Recovery is possible with a few weeks of treatment.
|1) Recovery in days with drugs or treatment.|
2) Limited indirect adverse effects (limited contamination, temporary evacuation).
|Total||Immediate eradication is necessary but method is uncertain; global cooperation is essential.||Immediate eradication is necessary at high cost and high risk; international response is necessary.||Immediate measures are necessary, but local response suffices.||Response to individual cases necessary but not urgent or dangerous.||A warning to civilians is necessary, but situation is not serious.|
- They are officially named as the "Five Threats" in Viz translation.
