%%* HeartBeatDown: PK Love!
* HeartwarmingOrphan: Lucas, though his father is technically still alive, does by all intents and purposes fulfill the role of an orphan due to the tragedy of his father's despondency and his mother's disappearance. He still ''does'' things to earn his likability, though.



* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: [[spoiler:After all of Lucas's [[TotalPartyKill fellow party members]] and [[TakingTheBullet Flint]] are struck down, he finally musters up the will to attack the [[DuelBoss Masked Man]]. [[ControllableHelplessness It doesn't really affect the outcome of the fight however]], though it does produce a couple of [[EasterEgg Easter Eggs]].]]

%%* ShrinkingViolet* ShrinkingViolet: Lucas is a very shy kid, [[CharacterDevelopment but he eventually has to step up]].



* MushroomSamba: Along with quite a bit of terror.

to:

* HappilyAdopted: [[spoiler:As she lost both her parents FryingPanofDoom: Subverted. You can actually get a Fake Frying Pan as a baby before being taken away on the "white ship"; the Magypsies agreed weapon for Kumatora, as a nod to raise her as their own.]]Paula, but it's just a Joke Weapon and is far from Kumatora's strongest piece of equipment.

%%* TheLadette* TheLadette: Kumatora has this sort of personality and attitude, though she does not exhibit any of the behavior commonly associated with it other than swearing.



* MenDontCry: Kumatora is too tough to cry, [[spoiler:at least not until the ending. According to Duster, it makes her look kinda cute.]]



* MushroomSamba: With a bit of horror mixed in.



%%* PsychicPowers

%%* PsychicPowers* RaisedByNatives: [[spoiler:Kumatora is an orphan, so the Magypsies took her in when she was a baby.]] It explains a lot, actually.



%%* SquishyWizard

to:

%%* SquishyWizard* SquishyWizard: Kumatora. Despite how she's portrayed in story as being very masculine and physically strong, even one time knocking out some guards that Lucas was specifically prohibited from talking to because of how strong they were, [[GameplayAndStorySegregation in actual gameplay, she really doesn't hit that hard.]] Her PSI is powerful and can rip the Pigmasks a new one, but she has the second lowest HP of the party (about 100+ HP less than Lucas or Duster) and lowest Defense of the party, so she can't take too many hits before taking Mortal Damage.



* HeartBrokenBadass: Flint is reduced to anger and silence after his wife and son vanish.



* MeaningfulName: [[spoiler:The locrian mode is considered to be a dissonant mode. Guess what Locria did]].

* TheReveal: [[spoiler:While you're heading through the [[VeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon Empire Porky Building,]] you come across a Magypsy's shell home. Inside you find several banana peels, a pair of musical horns, and Fassad's clothing, and nearby you'll meet a mouse who describes the missing Magypsy's characteristic laugh.]]

%%* TimeAbyss

to:

%%* TimeAbyss* TimeAbyss: King P has lived for centuries, due to his abuse of time travel and near immortality. He honestly doesn't know how old he is himself, although he suggests he may be 1,000 or 10,000.



* VillainsOutShopping: King P himself, clearly, has a lot of childish hobbies. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], since he's mentally in his early teens, and it still doesn't diminish his villainy.



* YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm: [[spoiler:What did Porky do?! Porky sprayed something! Porky sucked something!]] Of course, this is in the tradition of ''MOTHER'' final bosses, coming after "The Form of Giegue's Attack was Inexplicable" and, of course, the TropeNamer "You Cannot Grasp The True Form of Giygas's Attack." It's mostly parodied in this game though, especially since each and every one of his attacks still have unique text notifications and can be memorized with practice.

* OrphansOrdeal: Technically not an orphan, but might as well be. Poor kid's mother dies and his father grieves so much that he doesn't care for him.



** [[spoiler:EpilepticTrees: Popular theories surrounding the cut [[DummiedOut nightmarish backgrounds]], including that they were meant to be used throughout the final boss fight without text, or that it would have been an outcome in which Lucas was driven insane from grief or a [[HijackedByGanon surprise Giygas appearance]].]]

* GoodParents: Hinawa is loved by both her children and treats them with absolute kindness even when they're silly or annoying.



* GoodIsNotNice: [[GrumpyOldMan Old Man Wess]] wants to save the world and teach his son to be strong, but he does so in a borderline abusive way.

* MeaningfulName: Though never brought up in the story, the name "Lucas" translates to "Light" or "Bringer of Light", which is very fitting given how Lucas symbolizes and is referenced a few times as the "sun", through his actions to persevere through his hardships and redeem the world in [[CrapsackWorld a story and world as dark]] [[ItSucksToBeTheChosenOne and cruel to him as the world of Mother 3 is.]]

%%* PsychicPowers* PsychicPowers: As per tradition, Lucas is Psychic like the Main Protagonists before him, complete with his own unique Special PSI Attack, PK Love.



* TheChosenOne: Lucas is never officially named dropped as this, but [[spoiler: it's heavily implied that he's the Chosen One because he is one of only two people in the whole world who can use PK Love, and by extension, pull the 7 Needles that would awaken the Dark Dragon and rebirth the world, as prophesied.]]



* TwinTelepathy: Not in the usual sense though. Moreso the fact [[spoiler: that Claus can also use PSI, which you learn when you discover he is the Masked Man who's been pulling Needles, and the only other person who can use PK Love.]]
** Seemingly played straight everytime Lucas comes into contact with [[spoiler: Masked Man, as he gets these weird Light flashes that imply he recognizes the Masked Man and knows who he is.]]
