* LuckBasedMission: Her personal story. It depends on gates opening on top of sealed gates which means the right mythos cards have to be drawn and players have very limited ability to control the mythos cards.

* LuckBasedMission: The goal of his personal story is to get a Dreamlands trophy, with the fail condition being if the doom track hits 5. The problem is that opening gates typically ''advance the doom track'', which means that absent somebody starting with the Control Gate spell or fortunately-timed monster surges, Pete's only real hope for passing his objective is if (a) the Dreamlands can be reached by one of the first two gates (very low chance), and (b) he can ''get'' to that gate quickly. Not easy with his maximum base speed of 3...

* GaiasVengeance: If a Gate Token is spent before Akachi can complete her Personal Story (regardless of who spends it), she fails it. She invokes this trope by saying how the Earth has suddenly gone silent, and that "[[NiceJobBreakingItHero Our actions must have offended it somehow]]"

* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: The setting is deliberately vague as to whether or not benevolent entities like "God" exist within its setting, and with the lovecraftian tendencies for insanity taken into account, it's never clear whether Zoey actually IS hearing orders from God telling her to kill, or if she's simply mentally ill; either way, it works out, since the ones she's being told to kill in this case happen to be horrible monsters and insane cultists.
