* MoleInCharge: [[spoiler:Framed as such during the mole hunt, with Ata disguising himself as Specs to trick witnesses (such as Rex) into believing that Specs was the mole.]]

* {{Expy}}:
** In a time when Amanda Claw's personality was still severely underdeveloped, she nearly became an {{Expy}} of ''Dino Attack RPG'''s only female primary character at the time, Dromus. How so? Her weapon of choice, a chain whip, was blatantly stolen from Dromus. However, especially following the revelation of her backstory, Amanda's DivergentCharacterEvolution led to her dropping the chain whip and picking up the knife, helping to distance her from Dromus as well as most other characters.
** Silencia Venomosa's backstory is heavily inspired by [[Film/KillBill O-Ren Ishii]], and she also draws elements from [[Franchise/{{Terminator}} the Terminator, Sarah Conner]], and [[Literature/TheMillenniumTrilogy Lisbeth Slander]].

* [[spoiler:FaceDeathWithDignity]]: As someone who joined Dino Attack Team to redeem herself of her crimes, she was very calm and accepting of [[spoiler:her death, happy to be reunited with her family in the afterlife.]]



* FemaleMonsterSurprise: When Amanda Claw was temporarily mutated by Mutant Dino Serum, Rex and Trouble initially assumed that she was a male Mutant T-Rex. They only realized that she was female once they recognized her behavior as affectionate towards Rex.

* DudeWheresMyRespect: Andrew Jackson felt this way during the FinalBattle. After helping the Dino Attack Team retake LEGO Island and Gold City, he is rewarded by his teammates telling him to shut up and put some clothes on. Given that he was running around in his underwear and shouting loudly into the radio, [[SweetPollyOliver while his daughter was posing as him]] so no one recognized him as agent Pyro, the lack of respect ''was'' justified, though.

* FaceDeathWithDignity: This is how Roger Remous died at the hooks of Finister, which has considerably helped Amanda Claw accept his death.



* SuddenNameChange: In his debut, Anubis was named "Arubis" due to a typo by [=PeabodySam=], and therefore he was referred to by this name in The Castle Gear's post. When he was brought back later on, his name was corrected to Anubis.

* TheLancer

to:

* TheLancerTheKirk: Greybeard, in comparison with the [[TheMcCoy more emotional]] Rex and the [[TheSpock more logical]] Frozeen. Of the three, he comes across as the most practical, able to balance his emotional drive and his experience-based logic, therefore knowing what he must do in any situation. He is much more down-to-earth than Rex, but is also able to emotionally relate to his companions much better than Frozeen can.
* TheLancer: Greybeard is a cantankerous cynical realist, who contrasts with Rex and Frozeen whenever he works with them.


Added DiffLines:

* MeaningfulName: Death is a central theme of Anubis's character, which makes sense given that his codename refers to the ancient Egyptian god associated with the afterlife.

* BackportedDevelopment: Amanda Claw's depiction in ''Love and War'' (a {{rewrite}} of her first appearance in the RPG) is based on her post-LEGO Island story arc characterization, instead of how she was originally portrayed during her first few years in the RPG.



* HeroicWillpower: Amanda Claw is the only known individual to have been infected with Mutant Dino serum and fought off the mental effects through sheer willpower alone. [[{{Animorphism}} It still transformed her into a Mutant T-Rex, though.]]

* TheSilentBob

to:

* TheSilentBobTheSilentBob: Rex noted that Amanda could be very expressive even while silent, and subtle nuances in her facial expression would speak volumes for her in the absence of words.



* WasItAllALie?: During the Adventurers' Island StoryArc, shortly after learning about Amanda's identity as Silencia Venomosa and her secret fear that "Amanda Claw" is just a mask, Rex asked Amanda this question in regards to their love. Thankfully, Amanda's response was "no", and that helped to keep her grounded.

* WhenSheSmiles: In ''Love and War'', Rex noted that Amanda very rarely gave a genuine smile, but when she did, it made her look younger, happier, and freed from the heavy burdens she carried with her.

You'd expect that she would be Databoard's love interest, right? However, their relationship appears to be entirely platonic, since neither has explicitly expressed romantic feelings for the other.

to:

* TenderTears: Kate shed a few after being locked in an office by Dr. Bishop and later after witnessing the accidental murder of a group of Dino Attack Agents disguised as XERRD personell.




to:

* WhatYouAreInTheDark: [[spoiler:Baron Typhonus]] attempted to goad Minerva Fabello into pushing Andrew into a death trap in the Pharaoh's Forbidden Ruins while Minerva and Andrew were alone. At the last second, Minerva saved Andrew from the trap.



* TranquilFury: Keeping perfectly in character for her, Amanda Claw does not explode when she is angry, but remains tranquil and collected... which arguably makes her fury even more terrifying.



* UndyingLoyalty: To Rex.
* TheUnfettered: As Silencia Venomosa.
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: Tragically, Amanda Remous in her youth. She cried out to her parents, distracting them just long enough for Don Bricassius to kill them both.



* TheVoiceless: Amanda Claw, [[SuddenlyVoiced until she broke her vow of silence]] in the LEGO Island mission.



* TalkingInYourSleep: Heavy apparently had a weird dream about marrying a [[EverythingsSatiatingWithSandwiches sandwich]].




to:

* {{Transplant}}: From ''Pirates RPG''.




to:

* TokenReligiousTeammate
* TheUnfettered



* TakeThat: Andrew Jackson's rant on the comm was a playful TakeThat to Pyro's [[NotAsYouKnowThem dramatic change in character]] after [[SamusIsAGirl being revealed as a woman]]. Andrew Jackson turned out to be popular enough to take back the role of Pyro.



* TheyCalledMeMad: A rare non-MadScientist variation, spoken by Andrew Jackson during his rambling.



* ThatMakesMeFeelAngry: In one of his journal entries, Spy included a tacked-on note saying that he was "most displeased" that his favorite blazer had blood on it.

* WholesomeCrossdresser: There ''was'' [[NoodleImplements a dress]] in Spy's briefcase...

* TriggerHappy




to:

* YoungGun




to:

* WorthyOpponent: Dust viewed Rockford as a match for his intellect.




to:

* TriggerHappy
* UnstoppableRage: When he feels his authority might be threatened.
* VillainousBreakdown: Carl Lutsky fit the trope when he went from well-groomed jerk to crazy jerk with a vendetta.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Lutsky has the same goals as the rest of the team - to bring an end to the invasion of the mutant dinos. It's just that he's willing to take a few more risks that others would normally object to.



* TakingYouWithMe: Attempted by Firecracker, but [[FailedASpotCheck it didn't exactly work out the way he planned.]]
* WhatTheHellHero: Firecracker tried to perform a TakingYouWithMe... by blowing up Dino Attack Headquarters, which is what Dino Attack Team was fighting to defend, while there were doctors, patients, evacuees, Dino Attack agents, and other personnel still inside, an important Teleport Pad on the roof, and only a fraction of the Mutant Dino forces inside the building at that point.




to:

* YourAnswerToEverything: Give Firecracker a problem, any problem- and I guarantee you 99.9% percent of the time he'll find a way to work [[StuffBlowingUp explosives]] into his solution.

to:

* WeCanRebuildHim: Unconfirmed, but seeing as the titular creature of the ''Franchise/{{Alien}}'' series has a very biomechanical appearance, it possibly applies to Raptor when he was turned into Enox Phorm after apparently being eaten by a Mutant T-Rex.



* [[spoiler:VillainousBSOD]]: Ata was left in stunned silence after learning that [[spoiler:he was nothing more than a pawn for the Maelstrom]].



* DeliberateValuesDissonance: Inverted, while his rival J. Theano boasts about interviewing all the founding members Scott made a point of interviewing those with less obvious contributions that may have otherwise been overlooked by the public. For instance he spent some time interviewing individual agents on the field and a bit of time acknowledging the importance of the medics when interviewing them.

to:

* ToBeLawfulOrGood: Wade during the aftermath of J.D.'s assassination. One the one hand, he could try to stabilize him, possibly getting some useful information but only delaying his inevitable death and most likely causing him a lot pain. On the other, he could let him die quickly and with a minimum of pain, but realizes that killing him also goes against his own personal morals as well as being the opposite of what he as a medic is responsible for doing.

* IWasNeverHere: According to Specs, he most certainly did ''not'' have an argument in his office with Rex and Amanda about the identity of the mole.



* ItHasBeenAnHonor: Specs has used this trope when talking to his fellow Dino Attack agents towards the end of the FinalBattle.



* SavedByCanon: Could not be killed for this reason.

ShellShockedVeteran: The horrors of war left Kate Bishop in a state where she must seek counseling and psychiatric sessions to help cope with her PTSD.



* ItHasBeenAnHonor: Semick has used this trope when talking to his fellow Dino Attack agents towards the end of the FinalBattle.



* DontAsk: You probably don't want to know the reason why Amanda knows not to hide dead or unconscious bodies in utility closets.



* IDidntTellYouBecauseYoudBeUnhappy: The reason why Rex did not tell Amanda about Roger's death.



* [[spoiler:SacrificialLion]]: Considering that she was one of the most important and longest-running characters of ''Dino Attack RPG'', and yet she was [[spoiler:intended to die in the FinalBattle]].



* TheSilentBob



* SplitPersonality: Invoked but not confirmed. Amanda Claw does not personally believe that she has split personality, simply considering her darker side the result of giving in to negative feelings, but to anyone else it would seem that she has two very separate personalities.
* StepfordSmiler: If Silencia Venomosa is smiling and it is not a PsychoticSmirk, then it is a Type C example.
* TheStoic: As Silencia Venomosa, she rarely showed genuine emotion.



* SuddenlyAlwaysKnewThat: As part of the gradual revelation of her BelatedBackstory, Amanda Suddenly Always Knew how to be a deadly-efficient sniper during the attack on the XERRD Fortress.



* SympatheticMurderBackstory: Amanda's backstory, in which her parents were murdered by Don Bricassius, was written to invoke pity and sympathy.



* WasItAllALie?: During the Adventurers' Island StoryArc, shortly after learning about Amanda's identity as Silencia Venomosa and her secret fear that "Amanda Claw" is just a mask, Rex asked Amanda this question in regards to their love. Thankfully, Amanda's response was "no", and that helped to keep her grounded.



* SpacePolice: Commando Holly Vinyaya was sent to the LEGO Planet after hearing rumors of the Blacktron allying with a rogue Dino Attack Agent. She ended up serving as a Dino Attack Agent in other parts of the world.



* EyepatchOfPower



* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Snake decided that his promised pardon didn't matter (seeing as he has no intention of reforming, the pardon wouldn't last long, as he'd soon be giving the police other reasons to start hunting him again), so he and Trigger both decided to ditch the team and make a run for it (and then Snake went and ditched Trigger in an attempt to get away).
* SirSwearsALot
* SmokingIsCool



* IfYouKillHimYouWillBeJustLikeHim: Garry's moral issues over whether to turn in Rotor. On the one hand he could keep quiet, allowing the team to keep a good leader that they will need in the upcoming battle, but he is still an accomplice to cold-blooded torture, making him no better. On the other hand, he could turn Rotor in. However, the team would be deprived of the one man who can lead a T-1 squad. He would also most likely be punished himself though probably not as severely as if he kept quiet, and worst of all Rotor might try to kill him out of anger. Interestingly, Garry actually chose to keep quiet, though he deliberately faked Jenny's death to get her as far away from Rotor as possible.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Garry got this ''twice'', though he didn't use those exact words. First when he visited Jenny shortly after torturing her in cold blood, and then a second time when he unwittingly botched the assault on the real Maelstrom temple by bringing a power-hungry Stromling inside.




to:

* SeamlessSpontaneousLie: Garry's managed to make a few in an effort to cover up his role in torturing prisoners.



* ClosestThingWeGot: Think a semi-religious doctor the ClosestThingWeGot to a minister? During Rex and Amanda's WartimeWedding, Greybeard proclaimed that ''he'' was the Closest Thing We Got... because he's the oldest Minifig on the team?



* IDidWhatIHadToDo: The maxim of many realist agents, including Greybeard.



* KillHimAlready: What Greybeard wanted to do after Dr. Rex's fall. If only Rex had listened to him instead of wanting to give Dr. Rex some CruelMercy...



* LikeASonToMe: Although they are not biologically related, Greybeard sees Mary Rose as if she really were his granddaughter.



* NotAfraidOfYouAnymore: According to Word of God, this is how Greybeard vanquished his illusion in the Maelstrom Temple.



* SandInMyEyes: Greybeard was definitely ''not'' crying during the final battle. It was raining very hard, and [[{{Understatement}} there was a leak in the roof]], in case you haven't noticed.



* SeadogBeard



* ITakeOffenseToThatLastOne: Medic didn't mind being called out on his questionable methods. He ''did'' mind, however, when Pierce falsely accused him of using rusty tools.



* [[spoiler:ShootTheMedicFirst]]: Medic was the second member of Second Headquarters Squad to be [[spoiler:killed by TheMole]].



* SamusIsAGirl: Played with. It was originally Averted, since WordOfGod confirmed that Pyro was male, and then Double Subverted, when the mask came off and Pyro turned out be a girl, and then ''Triple'' Subverted when recent developments revealed that Pyro was male all along and the girl was actually posing as Pyro.
* SanitySlippage: After Andrew Jackson's family was killed, his sanity really went off the slippery slope.



* INeedAFreakingDrink: After having some problems of his own and finding out that two of his teammates were killed, Spy ''really'' needed a cigarette to clear his head so he could figure out the identity of [[TheMole the killer]].

* SurferDude

to:

* SurferDudeSanitySlippage: The war hasn't exactly had a positive effect on Lance's mind.
* ShellShockedVeteran: Technically, he hasn't been in the team for long, but it has had a significant impact on his mind.

to:

* SmugSnake: French Fries is sure that he is well-deserving of his elite agent ranking and believes that his supposed "friends in high places" will protect him from anyone who raises a finger against him. As such, he comes across as incredibly smug, even boasting to Rex's face that he supposedly ran over Trouble with a vehicle. The result is that he gets utterly humiliated: he is arrested, violently assaulted twice, stripped of his ranking, and discharged from the team, all the while unable to even put up a good fight.
* StrawCharacter: French Fries was such a StrawCharacter that it would be ''[[InsultToRocks insulting]]'' [[InsultToRocks to Straw Characters]] if we called him one.

* ClosestThingWeGot: The rationale of the founding members when they temporarily promoted Shannon Grimton, who was a technology expert, to head of communications. Of course, they only remembered afterwards that they had Hertz, who was much closer for the job...



* SuperWheelchair: Shannon Grimton's wheelchair has a minigun, a laser device, and a rocket launcher.
