* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: Upon meeting Gamzee, Caliborn proceeds to unload his assault rifle into him for ''four straight pages,'' even taking the time to DoubleTap Gamzee's motionless body. (In fairness, [[{{Determinator}} that damn clown refuses to stay dead]].)

* [[TheUntwist The Shitty Twist]]: He's Lord English. After a major flash sequence that implied it, it was outright revealed in a pretty dismissive way. Given [[TrollingCreator Hussie's]] usual narration style, though, it's still possible for this to be a fake-out, with something more complicated at work.



** [[WhenSheSmiles When He Smiles]]: Except when matters of his species' culture or [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/storyfiles/hs2/05958_2.gif worldbuilding]] come up.

* KilledOffForReal: Her dreamself. Her actual self is still ''technically'' alive, but asleep, since Caliborn is in control of their shared body. The way that Caliborn is monopolizing the body shows that she's not coming back anytime soon.

* KilledOffForReal: Her dreamself. Her actual self is still ''technically'' alive, but asleep, also ended up killed due to how Cherub personalities work, since Caliborn is in control of their shared body. The way that Caliborn is monopolizing the body... but eventually she gained her own body shows that she's not coming back anytime soon.courtesy of Roxy and the Ring of Life.

* BigGood: What her alternate, doomed-timeline self hopefully is, being theoretically as powerful as Lord English.

* BigGood: What her alternate, doomed-timeline self hopefully is, turned out to be, being theoretically as powerful as enough to destroy the Green Sun and depower Lord English.

* {{Expy}}: Calliope functions as a mixture of Jade and Karkat, in that she's an alien, but still a kindly OracularUrchin. This is seemingly intentional; her computer's symbol contains both green and grey. Caliborn seems to more directly emulate Karkat, some of Terezi's early chatlogs, and Gamzee.
** DarkerAndEdgier[=/=]LighterAndSofter: Calliope is a lighter version of Karkat, Caliborn is a darker version, both literally and figuratively since their chat colors are lighter and darker shades of grey than Karkat's respectively.
** And of course, they look exactly like Lord English, while their cheek spirals are taken directly from [[{{Franchise/Saw}} Billy the puppet]].

** In universe it's complicated as well. It contains both Grey and Green, matching her {{Expy}} nature to Jade and Karkat. The lime portion of her symbol matches the color used for First Guardian powers and Uranium both. Limebloods are also the Troll caste in between Sollux and Nepeta, aka where Karkat ''would'' be if he had normal troll blood, though this fact turned out to be {{Fauxshadowing}}.

Added DiffLines:

* EvilVirtues: He ''embodies'' Tenacity and Work Ethic.


Added DiffLines:

* GeniusDitz: He's a bit of a reckless thug, to be sure, but he's ''excellent'' at planning. In fact, he actually prefers elaborate schemes purely to spite those who say he can't.

** Ironically she genuinely becomes an Invoked example of a MarySue, as she's a MacGuffinGirl that most of the dead dreamselves are searching for to defeat Lord English.

* {{Foreshadowing}} / {{Spoiler}}: In the updates on April 12 and 13, 2015 he reveals the big fight between him and the eight kids: [[spoiler: The Beta Kids get sucked into his juju, a glowing Homestuck logo, which will become the trapped kids weapon. Caliborn then delivers a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown on the Alpha Kids (equally, because he's not just a misogynist he's a "pro-sogynist"); watching Dirk getting beaten causes Jake to have a "hope-splosion". Also, at some point Gamzee gets sliced in half vertically.]]
