[[folder:General and Cross-Arc]]

* AbortedArc:
** It was implied around Intermission Acts Three and Four that Meenah would kick Dave down a notch somehow. [[spoiler:Meenah's essentially dead]], so this is unlikley.
** It was blatantly foreshadowed that Dave would die and Dirk would have to step into his shoes; a sort of inverse to what happened with Dave and Bro in canon [[spoiler:and fitting the events of the Shipping Intermission to an extent]]. Either this was a RedHerring or [[spoiler:Dave and Dirk, as well as the Lalondes, turning evil wasn't part of the original plan]].
** The patronage. Or more specifically, Jane and Equius's relationship. The other three groups (John and Nepeta, Jade and Kanaya, and to a lesser extent Jake and Feferi, though the latter was muddled by Terezi constantly being involved with them) had a decent ammount of interactions and arcs. Jane and Equius, on the other hand, just have a few neutral conversations with Equius occasionally hitting on Jane for some reason. Him being her patron troll is practically informed.
* TheAce: Dave and Nepeta. Jade is also inexplicably good at the Mario game.
* AerithAndBob: John, Jade, Jane, Jake, Jean, Jude, Joan, and... ''Jaka''. Also Jenn.
* AllMenArePerverts / [[AllWomenAreLustful All Women Are Perverts]]: ''Every human kid'' seems to be a pervert; they all have some form of porn collection except John and Rose (Dave doesn't either but he looks at Dirk's), and it's been very slightly implied that there is something with Rose too. John is the only one so far who had not really ''done'' anything perverted.
* AnachronicOrder: When it comes to John and Jade, the plot is surprisingly chronological for the most part. ''Anyone else'', including their alter-egos, on the other hand?
* AmbidextrousSprite: Believe it or not, this is ''averted'' more often than not: Asymetical features such as John's slimer on his shirt are flipped on his sprite. Hair, however, plays this straight, even in mouse-drawn images.
* {{Angrish}}: Very frequent. Of note, various characters shout "Magmaargh!" [[http://www.mariowiki.com/Magmaargh Which is actually the name of a Mario enemy.]]
* AnimeHair: All eight kid ancestors, except Betty Crocker. (Who's a real person in this instead of a brand logo.)
* ArcNumber: [[NumberOfTheBeast 616]] in a similar manner to 413/612/1025/111 in ''Homestuck''. Arguably, 214 fits this as well.
* ArcSymbol: Rip's iconagraphy of a hat, which resembles [[WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland Ezekiel's]] touque. Also, [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=759 Edith is appearantly wearing a hat similar to that]], and she looks like she's in an outfit that resembles Ezekiel's as well.
* ArcWords: "Rip." Usually as a WrittenSoundEffect.
* ArtEvolution: More like ''de''-evolution, but the same effect is given. At first, only copy-and-pasted art is used for most characters, but then they get SBAHJ-styled sprites that progressivly get crappier sometimes. [[http://mspfanventures.com/?adv=588&id=640 Here's]] one of the uglier images that took advantage of the new MS Paint tools.
* ArtShift.
* ArtifactTitle: Around the latter parts of Intermission Act Two, the story actually starts to resemble ''Problem Sleuth'' more than ''Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff''.
* AscendedExtra:
** Nepeta, to the point where she's orcastrating something massive and is behind quite a few of the comic's events.
** Kanaya, Equius, and Feferi within the series, who started off as rather minor characters before becoming the designated "main" trolls along with Nepeta.
** Jane and Jake, who were originally parodies of the "villainous doppleganger" architype before becoming a part of '''''the''''' main cast in Intermission Act 3.
** Aranea is arguably one of the most important of the trolls, right behind Nepeta. For starters, she gets an entire intermission centered around herself and stories told by her -- something ''none'' of the other characters so far have had. And now [[spoiler:she's the cause of most of the troll deaths]].
** Dotty Campbell was a one-shot-then-cameo extra on ''Family Guy'', but became a semi-recurring character here. For one, she's the only member of the Fox Crew who isn't dead yet.
* AuthorAppeal:
** All of the ''[[Series/TheBigBangTheory Big Bang Theory]]'' references.
** Pikmin Fan does not like Gamzee, as he said on his fan fiction.net profile. When the deaths start happening in the Shipping Intermission, no points for guessing who's one of the first characters killed off. [[spoiler:When the trolls ''finally'' start dieing for real, guess again who's one of the first to go]]. To make matters worse, his ancestor is the only one to die who was not killed by another person, but rather died in an accident.
** You can tell Pikmin Fan has a thing for nudists.
* AuthorAvatar: A green Pikmin without any features. He sometimes speaks directly to the audience in his own quirk. [[spoiler:And he is now dead]].
* AxCrazy: The thirteen Nepetas provide a whole ''range'' of sanity, taking the offhand mention of trolls closer to tyrian being more agressive and violent. Tyrian Nepeta, on the far end, will occasionally try to kill people out of fits of frustration.
* BackForTheDead:
** [[spoiler:Peter Griffin. But this was so that Peter's soul would just be on Earth along with Stan's, and have not entered the afterlife waiting room, so he can capture them and use the energy to transport the pyramid in World 2 over towards World 7]].
** Non-revival example: [[spoiler:Boomhauer, Bill, and Dale all die shortly after their third appearance]].
** Bowser and the Ice King. The latter has been getting ''more'' screentime as a ghost, however.
* BeigeProse: Especially the narrator.
* BelligerentSexualTension: Between [[Manga/{{Hellsing}} Rip Van Winkle]] and [[WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill Hank Hill]]. No, really.
* BigBad: WordOfGod says that the final villain will be [[spoiler:Rip Van Winkle]]. However, the big bad of the Mario Intermission was clearly The Evil, and the big bad of Act Two so far seems to be [[spoiler:Dave]].
* {{Bizarrchitecture}}: It's first [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=473 heavily]] [[http://mspfanventures.com/?adv=588&id=475 implied]], then [[http://mspfanventures.com/?adv=588&id=961 confirmed]], that Jade's house is built on top of John's house.
* BlondesAreEvil: Major, Luke, Schrodinger, Doctor, [[spoiler:Dave, Rose, Roxy, and Dirk]].
* BonusBoss: [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} Robosanta]] is outright described as being one of these. Plus the creature made entirley out of dollar bills, gold, and a diamond.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Countless times.
** In one point, while Jade was accidentally sent back to World 1 and attempts to catch up with John, she somehow ends up briefly running through Great Pikmin Fan's room while he's explaining the inspiration for that particular scene. GPF himself questions exactly how Jade got in there, but this isn't answered until much later.
** Rip Van Winkle blatantly asks FIRE John to speak in a more readable text color than white. Similarly, back in Intermission Act One, Jade insists that John "tolks the Pincess in pink." [sic.] Both of these where spoken conversations, not typed. The second one is called back to, but through pesterchum rather than being spoken.
** Once John and Jade finally meet up, John remarks that if the mario session was a play this would be the end of act two. Jade answers with "not yet." This is about half of the way into Intermission Act Two.
** When someone was about to exposit, Jade remarks that this isn't [[TakeThat Homestuck Act 6 Act 3]], but Sweet Jade and Hella John Intermission Act 4.
** In a ''plot point'', Aranea [[spoiler:kills Great Pikmin Fan's self insert and ''uses the recaps to get information on the comic's events''. She also attempts to hijack the narrative (again) and contact Dave, but this only resulted in Dave blowing up the computer with his sharingan powers and causing her to lose a leg and a tooth]].
* BrotherSisterIncest:
** One-sided, [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=718 Jade outright tries to make out with Jake]]. Er... [[OppositeSexClone Jaka.]] This happens several times.
--->Jaka: GAH!!!!\\
Jaka: Jade you no wer sisters rite?\\
Jade: dont care\\
John: o man if roes sees this shell freek the fuck out.
** A bit more subtle because them being siblings isn't reminded to the readers: Karkat and Dave are half-siblings. (Don't ask.) Karkat sees Dave's new "emo" look (Don't ask about this either) and thinks he's some kind of cute girl. John points out that it's a guy. Karkat in unphased due to him being bisexual. Then John says it's Dave. Karkat's responce is silence.
** [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=2050 "Jake: Blow everyone's minds."]] Jake confesses sudden love for Jade. Jade is freaked out by it.
* CallBack:
** Many, many gags to ''Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals'': Frown of worry, DO YOU REALLY WANT TO TAKE CHANGE, the liquid metal man vs. judge in a court case... one of Spongebob's fan fics has a similar summary to chapter 9 of HUC. However, this seems to have stopped after the Mario Intermission.
** During the Jane-Jake-Joan-Jaka romantic dispute, Jake in a desperate attempt to prove some sort of point yells for Dirk (who had a crush on him in the past) to kiss him. Dirk's reaction there, and for a good chunk of the remaining intermission until Jade snaps him out of it, is ":O!!!!" [[StunnedSilence And nothing else]]. Much later on, [[spoiler:and coincidentally ''right'' after Dirk's (and Roxy's) death]], Jake cries out for ''Jade'' to kiss him, and Jade reacts in ''the exact same way as Dirk did''. Well, except for the fact that she managed to snap out of it on her own near-instantly.
* CanadaEh: uranianUmbra (AKA Edith Quimby) [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=587 types]], and talks, in a very heavy Canadian accent, complete with adding a "U" after ''every'' "O" unless it's the first of a double.
* CanonDiscontinuity: The ''Trol Seasson'' crossover is ''never'' mentioned again (barring the recap and a ''[[http://mspfanventures.com/?adv=588&id=796 very]]'' brief mention by Dave that actually took place in the past) once both characters leave the story; which is odd, considering how Karkat's duel match against Anger was supposed to be a huge move in Troll History and how continuity-filled the webcomic is. The flashbacks we've seen in relation to the trolls do not mention the trol race at all.
* CaptainObvious: The narrator, sometimes.
* CastingGag:
** Unintentional at first, but [[StuckInTheirShadow Jade as Luigi]] and [[EnsembleDarkhorse Jake as Waluigi]]. And John and Jade as the Mario ''brothers''.[[labelnote:Note]]But they're not related in SJAHJ, or at least definitley not siblings. (As the ancestor arc revealed.)[[/labelnote]]
** [[WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy Nazz]] as the princess that everyone wants a kiss from.
* CensorBox: On everything naked.
* CerebusSyndrome: For a while during Intermission Act Two and Intermission Act Three.
** ReverseCerebusSyndrome: However, now the story seems to be reverting back to it's old, silly ways with little care towards characterization (what with Rose randomly speaking in Austrailian dialect), but the plot's still complicated. And dark.
* ChekhovsGun:
** [[spoiler:The yellow ship John and Jade ride on. It is later used as Stan's battle field during the first Fox Crew arc, and then sent to Troll Town by the Captain and ridden by the trolls from Troll Town to World 8. Its current wereabouts are unknown. It also reappears in Intermission Intermission, wherein there's a nuke Jade threatens to kill everybody with, and by an accident everyone dies. Whether or not there's actually a nuke on the real ship is unknown]].
** Early into [=IA2=], [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=60 Jade captchaloges a random vacuum cleaner.]] '''''Four hundred and seventy''''' [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=530 pages later...]][[labelnote:note]]The reason why Jude has one as well is because everything a person has in their sylladex is duplicated onto the sylladex of their Inward Journey counterpart.[[/labelnote]]
** [[spoiler:John fainting at the thought of Rose becomes important as Roxy uses this within a dream to get a look at his medical records]].
* ChekhovsGunman: The entire cast except for John and Jade.[[labelnote:*]]Well, maybe not the ''entire'' cast, but the only exceptions are ''extremely'' minor characters. Death Mecha, for one, had a pretty straightforeward role in the story. (Albeit one with a perspective switch between his first two appearnaces.) And that demon guard in Red Hell doesn't seem to have potential for a re-appearance anytime soon.[[/labelnote]] But Pikmin Fan admitted that this isn't from being planned ''as much'' as legitimatly not finding a good spot to bring closure to a character's arc until much later. But even with that, there are some notable examples:
** In Intermission Act One, Hank Hill seems to be a one shot side character used for the sake of a joke. Then he kills Vriska's doctor, and is revealed to be the leader of the {{Fox}} Crew with said doctor actually being a part of a rival group of Felt expies, the Millennium. The Millennium also contains the comic's BigBad. [[spoiler:And no, it isn't the Lord English stand-in]].
** John's inner female self, and inner selves in general for that matter.
* ColorCodedCharacters:
** Dream selves taken outside of dreams normally have a pale tinge to them. And if [[Webcomic/ProblemSleuth Temporal Replicsimile]] is used, the same color-coding key from PS applies: Green is the copy that goes in the past, red is the copy that goes in the future.
** The Hydra's heads.
** This is the reason why Link-Dirk is in a blue tunic instead of the trademark green: To prevent the color color from being too similar to either Good Yoshi's or Luigi-Jade's.

[[folder:Act One, Intermission Act One, and Intermission Act Two]]

[[folder:Act Two Act Two]]

* AnyoneCanDie: As of March 17th (2013, that is), nobody is truely safe except for the titular characters and their evil twins. [[spoiler:The trolls have ''finally'' begun dying off, starting with Aradia, then Aranea is essentially dead after engaging Slender Mode. The death count so far includes the aformentioned Aradia, Aranea, and Rufioh, plus Terezi, Gamzee, Sollux, and Meenah. And the Terezi's [[GenreSavvy predictions]] is that several more trolls are going to die too]].
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: In [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=2053 this]] page, when Kanaya is listing off Jade's flaws:
-->GA: Like Your Opinion Dictatorship Over Your Group\\
GA: Your Neglect To Have Any Empathy Towards Others If They Dont Have Black Hair And Glasses And Even Then Its Iffy\\
GA: You Claiming Youre A Lesbian When You Are Really Bisexual If That\\
GA: [[spoiler:Your Bullying Dave Being THE FUCKING CAUSE OF ALL OF OUR PROBLEMS LATELY IN THE FIRST PLACE!!!!!]]\\
GA: And Your Unhealthy Obsession With Marge Simpson
* BigBallOfViolence: [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=1996 This]] panel, due to the animator's lazy-ness.
* BlackComedy: Showed up occasionally at first, then pretty much dominated the plot of Act Two Act Two. [[spoiler:One of John's longest best friends Dave has undergone a complete mental breakdown, and Rose, Roxy, ''and'' Dirk seem to be slipping with him. Dave is essentially commiting acts of terrorism by unleashing an army on a school, at least one member of which gets mauled to death by a dog from before. The only group of possible heroes, as everybody else is either dead, mind controlled, or evil from the start, is constantly mocked by one of their own members that repeatedly sexually harasses her own sister to the point of implied insanity. An alternate John has been brainwashed into Trickster Mode, and later on an alternate Jade suffered the same fate, neither of which have any signs of their warped thinking ending soon]]. All of this is PlayedForLaughs.
* BlackAndGrayMorality: Of all the ''Homestuck'' fancomics, this one uses this trope to an extent as of around Act Two Act Two (and, to a lesser extent, Act Two Intermission One.) And Act 2 Intermission 1 revealls that [[spoiler:Spongebob thinks that ''everyone'' except the titular characters and their "Evil Twins" are evil]].

[[folder:Act Two Intermission Two and Act Two Act Three]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Act Three]]

None yet, as that particular part isn't out yet!

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Unsorted]]

* {{Cosplay}}:
** Edith Quimby cosplays as who Rip "wants to cosplay as," which in turn resembles [[WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland Ezekiel's]] outfit but half blue and half yellow instead of green and teal. Edmund's outfit losley resembles Alucard's.
** Dave starts doing this a lot in Act Two. From AndrewHussie's sepulchritude outfit, to [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Sasuke's]] pre-time skip outfit + [[WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball Carrie's]] hairstyle, to Lord E-Bro's outfit in an alternate universe.
* CrackFic: It may be simpler, but it's arguably more confusing than ''Homestuck'' itself, due to the typoed (but still comprehensible) speech of most of the main characters, extremely frequent perspective switches and AnachronicOrder, and less concrete rules on reality in the universe. The fact that there are things you should be ''paying attention to'' makes it even worse, and the narrator frequently taunts you by asking if you remembered a certain character.
* CrackPairing: Invoked. There are several ''bizzare'' ships in this, such as Karkat/Equius and Terezi/Feferi. And then there's teased Jade/Kanaya, Jake/Terezi, Jake/Feferi, and Dave/Roxy (Roxy is ''[[ParentalIncest his biological mother]]'' in canon, but not in SJAHJ) The ones that do not involve the kids are weirder, such as [[WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow Cleveland Brown]]/[[Manga/{{Hellsing}} Tubalcain Alhambra]]. ([[spoiler:But they break up over ''Series/DoctorWho''.]])
* {{Crossover}}: As a fan fic, even moreso than ''Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals''. Although most of it is part of the Mario game.
** In a memo, sporesInfection from ''Onionstuck'' makes a brief appearance before Pikmin Fan himself comes in and bans him.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: The Captain. He acts like a complete idiot until one of the people who ranks below him starts attempting to murder several trolls.
* CurbStompBattle: The [[spoiler:first]] battle against The Evil just consists of a two-panel gif of John and Jade attacking him. [[spoiler:He escapes with low health, and fuses with a shipperworm and the Chinese Food Black Hole. But that form is killed off by Good Yoshi, transforming him into Boshi, making it another curb-stomp.]]
* CutAndPasteComic: It had been using sprites taken directly from ''Homestuck'', but use of them has been slowly tonning down. Of note, Karkat's one pose during an argument between him, Elitaa, Terezi, Feferi, and Eridan is repeatedly copy-pasted into other panels where he's really angry. [[spoiler:As a joke, this is also the image representing him when he dies.]] This trope is '''''especially''''' used in the parts involving the Fox Crew/Millennium. It was even worse during the part before the author actually drew sprites for them, since images were straight up ripped from Google, ''Webcomic/SherlokHolms'' style.
* DarkSkinnedBlonde: Rose and Roxy are revealed to be this towards the end of their portion at the beginning of Intermission Act 4.
* ADayInTheLimelight: "Sweet TROLLS and Hella MORE TROLLS." And "Sweet Rose and Hella Dave." Well, the latter only applied to before Act Two, where Dave, Rose, Roxy, and Dirk take up much more major roles in the story. There's also "Sweet Jake and Hella Jane," and the Trifold Battles and Act Two Act Two Intermissions.
* DeconstructiveParody: Intermission Act 3 (and John's encounter of his inner female self a little bit before) is for the most part this in regards to [[ScrewYourself selfcest]].
* DemotedToExtra:
** Pretty much every troll except Nepeta. WordOfGod stated that he even hates writting for them because he can't come up with anything for them that isn't walls of hemospectrum=racist, romance discussions, and plot exposition. Notably, Vriska, opposite of Nepeta, turns from one of the most important characters in ''Homestuck'' who deliberatly tries to force herself into the plot into an [[MyNameIsEarl Earl]] expy early on in the comic. [[RuleOfFunny This was intentional.]] Lamshaded in the Shipping Intermission when Tavros asks Vriska what the last big plan she had was. She answers with a long pause, followed by a "fuck you."
** Rose, Roxy, Dave, and arguably Dirk. (The "arguably" meaning that he actually joins John's group for most of Intermission Act Two, but [[LivingProp he doesn't do anything]] until after he separated himself from the group to look for rupees.) It's also heavily implied that the lines on the "==>" arrows stand for John, Jade, Jane, and Jake, and not any of the blondes. The reason for this being that dashes and equals are added once a gender flipped counterpart is made, including counterparts to Jane and Jake. Thankfully, this only seems to apply for the first three Intermission Acts; from [=IA4=] onwards, they get a lot more focus.
** Within the fan fic, Elitaa and possibly Puerco. Elitaa was at first ''quite'' the spotlight taker and her introduction and surrounding initial mysteries heavily took up most of ''Sweet TROLLS and Hella MORE TROLLS''. There was even a segment where she wandered around the yellow ship and looked at what all of the trolls there were doing; unfortunatly, nobody suggested, so that didn't go anywhere. She's now a LivingProp who hasn't made a physical, non-cameo appearance in over several hundred pages, and never really contributed to the plot. (Everything she did was tied directly with another character, such as destroying the T-800s with Eridan.) The "possibly" for Puerco is only because she was almost never important at all and is one of the few characters who didn't actually contribute anything to the story.
* '''DesignatedProtagonistSyndrome''': Invoked and very often lampshaded with the Blue and Yellow Team. John and Jade have done very little in the beginning that actually affected the main Fox Crew/Millennium rivalry; most of the Millennium members have been killed off by a third party, and the main characters never actually fought a member of the Fox Crew. Jane and Jake slip into this during Intermission Act Three, where this trope is in full force: Like most of the series up to this point (though from the alchemy arc onwards they finally start breaking free from this), John, Jade, Jane, and Jake have only been blindly following other people's commands, in this case the inward journey, while other, more interesting events are occuring like wars. In fact, in Act Two Act Two Roxy flat-out ''taunts'' the B&YT for being useless to what is going on.
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu Jade and Jude vs. Lord Major Quimby. They shoot him a little, causing him to back off and time/space travel out of there. Outside of context, this doesn't sound impressive... except that this is the ectobiological son of ''[[Manga/{{Hellsing}} Alucard]]'' we're talking about here.
* DistressedDamsel: The Pincess [sic].
* DiscOneFinalBoss: [[spoiler:Lord Major Quimby. In spite of filling in the "place" of Lord English, he's not the BigBad or even a remotley big villain from the perspective of the heroes. To add insult to injury, his death is extemely anticlimatic and ''one of the weakest members of the Millennium manage to kill the two that killed him'']].
* DivergentCharacterEvolution: John and Jade. In the beginning, the only real personalities given to them was that Jade was the more savvy expositor while John just listened, and he seemed to be a little bit dumber. The only hint of Jade's pervertedness was her owning a softcore porn magazine. Intermission Act 2 did not actually focus on her as much as John, or the other non-troll characters for that matter, and John stayed static throughout most of the act. It wasn't until Intermission Act Three where's Jade's "gangsta" personality really kicked in; and in fact that subact really focused on the main heroes of the adventure and was the first time Jane and Jake got some actual characterization beyond being John's rivals.
* DivideByZero: In a scene based off of the episode-naming situation in "[[Series/TheBigBangTheory the Dumpling Paradox]]," Roxy leaves the group of 32[[labelnote:Context]]No, this isn't the combined group of the 24 trolls and 8 kids. While fantroll Elitaa is included here, the missing slots of Sollux, Nepeta, Dave, and the A1 trolls is filled with nine Nepeta bloodswaps and five copies of some of the human kids.[[/labelnote]] in the Chinese restaraunt, meaning that there are no longer groups of four that they can evenly divide the food on. The result? All of the un-eaten Chinese food globs together and turns into a black hole that consumes the entire restaraunt.
* DoorStopper: It officially out-updated ''Homestuck'' in terms of pages per the first year early in January. It's now longer than the first three MS Paint Adventures AND ''Homestuck'' Beta combined, and is approaching the length of all of Act 5 of ''Homestuck''. It's being implied that the adventure is close to ending, but still. There is an option to skip the first thousand+ pages. Act Two Act Two alone is implied from author's notes to be the comic's longest subact, at over six hundred pages, passing through ''two'' seperate 500 panel filler celebration comics.
* TheDragon: Three examples: Omega Drew Pickles to Lord Major Quimby, Captain to Rip, and [[spoiler:Rose to Dave]].
* EarlyBirdCameo: SJAHJ is essentially one long ad for Great Pikmin Fan's future fan fics.
** One of the movies available for viewing at World 7 was "Onionstuck," however the option was struck out because it wasn't out yet. Not too long after, the actual fan adventure ''Onionstuck'' was out on the forums.
** [[spoiler:A future duoiligy of John/Jade and Dave/Rose fan fics has been hinted at in this, both times through Spongebob; ''Temples'', the John/Jade fan fic, had its premise hinted at during the part where Spongebob sends John a fan fic called "Eerie Temple," with the plot about John and Jade "exploring buildings." ''Attack of the Killer Time Beetles!'' the Dave/Rose fan fic, had been hinted at in the synopsis for the Spongebobfic with a title mentioning them]].
** Jade links to a ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' video after [[spoiler:saying that her love confession to Kanaya was just a prank]], to tell everyone that they just got trolled. This happened around a week after Pikmin Fan confirmed the next SBIG fan fic will be one of said show. Later on, the narrator admitted to having a crush on Nicole, from the same show. More amusingly, the character featured in that video in question is who Dave sorta-ends up dressing like (likley a coincidence in-universe).
** In the BadFuture, Dave's Lord E-Bro shirt reads "496" instead of Eddy's brother's "62." ''496 Reasons Why Multidating is More Complicated than it Seems'' would be made by the author.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The beginning of the story is quite different compared to what it has became. The first intermission act and the first chunk of the second focus a lot more on randomness for humor, with very little of the actions actually coming up again. Around the very first character select to Sweet TROLLS and Hella MORE TROLLS, the plot becomes a lot more structured and the adventure, as hard as it may be to belive, takes itself a little more seriously [[ChekhovsGun and events and characters from before starts becoming relevant]]. However, around the boss fight of Intermission Act Three, the adventure reverts back towards comedy and keeps up the hijinks, albeit keeping the plot organized. Even the formatting is different now: With the command arrows since becoming longer during Intermission Acts 3 and 4 and Act 2 Act 2 as alter-egos to John/Jade/Jane/Jake are added (though this has since reverted) and the Mario Intermission actually ''ending'' at one point -- eliminating the "[I]" tags that are on over 900 pages, plus Jade's cheat code that makes it so that commands don't refer to characters by initials anymore, it could be easy for one who hasn't gotten up to [=IA3=] yet to look at the "latest commands" on the mirror and think that pages of another adventure were accidentally uploaded instead of this.
* EasilyForgiven: Edmund's first conversation is him chewing out Elitaa for trying to "replace" him and Edith.[[labelnote:For reffrence]]This was before the reveal that the uracil characters were not trolls, but cherubs in canon. GPF decided to make them Simpsonians in SJAHJ; creatures that resemble ''Simpsons'' characters.[[/labelnote]] Elitaa says she's trying to replace Karkat instead. Edmund answers with "o ok then" and immediatley leaves.
* EasterEgg: In [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=809 one page]], Karkat shouts what seems like gibberish on the first line. [[spoiler:If you run it through [=ROT13=], it becomes a message that reveals the third elimination of one of the author's competition fan fics, ''[[FanFic/TotalZeksmitSeries Total Zeksmit Plains]]''. Before the chapter with that particular elimination was published.[[labelnote:Note]]The exact message, when translated, is "BRIDGETTEWILLBEVOTEDOFFTHIRDINTFSP," or "Bridgette will the voted off third in TFSP." TFSP standing for "Total ''Fan Service'' Plains, the old title of the fan fic.[[/labelnote]]]]
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Darkhorse is a parody/in-universe example. He's the only member of the Millennium Hank Hill actually likes. [[spoiler:And, of course, he gets killed off three pages after his first appearance]].
* EpicFail: Karkat promises to direct Jade to a pipe leading to World 8-4 is she can help him get a rare card for a duel match. But it turns out, he sent her to the wrong pipe. A pipe which ''leads to the beginning of the game''. Jade... [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=209 isn't happy about that.]]
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Rip's first full appearance is her after she [[spoiler:blows up the Death Mecha]], which also may foreshadow [[spoiler:her increasing tendency to kill members of the Millennium, whom she ''used'' to work for]].
* [[EvenTheGuysWantHim Even the "Not Homosexual" Guys and Lesbians Want Him]]: Dave.
* EveryoneIsRelated: Sort of. Dave's father and Jade's mother were a wedded couple, before they each had their respective twin sets with their eventual partners. John's biological father is named Harl '''Makara''', which Gamzee points out several pages later that this was because Gamzee's ancestor somehow adopted him, and thanks to some obscure Alternian legal loophole Gamzee can act as a guardian figure to John.
* EvilTwin: All of the human and troll kids who were post-scratch players in canon are seen as this, whereas their pre-scratch counterparts are the "good twins." A conversation between Dave and Aranea reveals that what denotes as being "good" or "evil" depends on what type of magic they are naturally good with. Also, Yoshi has one, which actually stemmed out from a suggestion that was supposed to compromise with there only being one Yoshi but two kids to ride him.
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: ''Boobs'' magazines and their SpearCounterpart ''Penis''.
* ExcusePlot: The entire series of events is set off just because John, one day, randomly declares "fuck, let's be... MARIO AND LUIGI."
* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler:Dirk may provide the dumbest example in all of media. He joins the villains' (well, one group of villains, that is) side just because Roxy offered him cookies]].
* FailOSuckyName: The nicknames for the ancestors. Especially Sleepy Dogwoman and [=Reddy McCoolshades=].
* FanFic: [[spoiler:The Shipping Intermission is revealed to be a fan fiction... by SpongebobSquarepants. Who is wearing shades. Which arguably raises more questions]].
* {{Fanon}}: Invoked. [[spoiler:Trickster Jade's design is based on a pixel by Feastings. The same pixel was used in-comic for the panel marking her first clear appearance.]] Other than that, however, ''Sweet Jade and Hella John'' may be the ultimate anti-fandom-meme comic, flat out defying or even criticising at points jokes that are commonly shared within the fandom and ''annihilating'' popular couples.
* FantasticRacism: Apart from the whole hemospectrum thing (which GPF admits that he actually hates writting), Karkat is against troll/human dating to the extent that [[spoiler:he completely breaks up with Nepeta over it and ends their friendship, or at least what could be considered friendship.]] And then there's Jade's conversation with UU/Edith:
-->GG: wait wait wait can this be avoided????\\
GG: i dont wanna live with a bunch of simpsons charcters if theyre gonna be dull and personalityless and theyre not marge!!!!!\\
GG: o yeah and i dont want all humans ded too\\
UU: ...\\
UU: that almoUst soUnds rasist.
: :[[spoiler:Darkhorse hates trolls. All trolls in general. John thinks it's racist]].
* FiveBadBand: [[spoiler:The Red and Red Team]].
** BigBad: [[spoiler:Dave]].
** TheDragon: [[spoiler:Rose]].
** TheBrute: [[spoiler:Roxy]], by far one of the deadliest and most active and mobile members, currently in possesion of all seven Millennium jujus.
** TheEvilGenius: [[spoiler:Auto Responder]].
** TheDarkChick: [[spoiler:Dirk]].
* FiveManBand: At first, it was just John, Jade, and later Good Yoshi. Intermission Act 2 changed their team around often (dropping Good Yoshi for Jade and FIRE John, for one). However, as of Act Two Act Two, they seem to have finally settled onto this:
** TheHero: John.
** TheLancer: Jade.
** TheBigGuy: Fire John, Jane with her Crocker Blade.
** TheSmartGuy: Possibly the counterparts (yes, all four of them), especially due to them getting more information pestered to them than their originals.
** TheLoad: Jake.
** TheSixthRanger: Dirk (throughout the adventure; ever since [=IA2=]; [[spoiler:then Roxy convinced him to turn evil]]), Rose, Dave, Roxy ([[spoiler:before all three of them became evil]]), and the trolls.
* FiveTokenBand: Ethnicities have been hinted at here and there, or outright revealed in the very rare "in color" pages, but Spongebob's Shipping Grid provides a handy image: [[http://i.imgur.com/ZGCN1.png The Striders are blondes with the same pinkish skin color used for Hank Hill (and most Millennium members), the Lalondes are black blondes, the Egberts are Latino, and the Harleys have the same skin tone as the Striders, but with the same hair color as Rip.]]
* ForegoneConclusion: Happens a lot.
** In Intermission Act Four, when one of Dave's dreamselves finally meets up with Rose and Roxy, Roxy teases that she will try to steal one of the four quest gatorade containers and force Dave to drink it, making a female version of himself that Roxy presumes Jade will fall in love with. Given that Intermission Act Three was ''all'' about John, Jade, Jane, and Jake on thier inward journey and each of them drank their gatorade, "Dame Strider" never came to be. The funny thing is, given Dave's ability to charm anyone regardless of sexuality, that wasn't even really necessary.
** When Darkhorse is ''finally'' elaborated on, pretty much everything else about him had been revealed through snippets, including his death. This means that his creation was the absolute ''last'' thing we find out about him. Shorlt after such, the narrator recaps his entire story.
* {{Flanderization}}: Jade, Karkat, and Roxy got hit with this pretty badly. The former got more perverted as the series went on (she was originally surprised at a misunderstanding comment; now she outright tries to make out with her "[[OppositeSexClone sister]][[BrotherSisterIncest brother]]" and jokes about her parents sex life), and the latter two got more and more focused on ships. Although Roxy's had been RetCon[=ned=] with the reveal that [[spoiler:she had been infected with a "shipper worm" that Cerulean Nepeta knocks out of her shortly after... and now it's been changed right back again and Roxy is still a sociopath.]]
* {{Foreshadowing}}:
** [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=410 In the Shipping Intermission,]] [[spoiler:Vriska asks Jade if she's going to nuke everybody. Her responce? "not yet." Granted, she doesn't do the nuking, but still.]] The Shipping Intermission in general is basically just one big foreshadowing of events in future subacts, and was what retroactivley determined Jade, Jane, and Jake's supposed patron trolls. ([[spoiler:Kanaya, Equius (originally Elitaa while Equius replaces Nepeta for John's), and Feferi respectivley.]])
** Dirk saying that the conflict between John and Dave is like that between [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Naruto and Saskue]], but with the hair colors flipped.
* FourLinesAllWaiting: Several instances in Intermission Act 2. It's gotten to the extent that Good Yoshi, previously a semi-regular, had vanished for over a hundred pages before John and Jean ''finally'' hear of him again. Intermission Act 3 attempts to avoid the "all waiting" part by having a heavy focus on the kids playing as Mario brothers, but at a cost most of the other plots run even slower.
* FreakOut: Dave's reaction to [[spoiler:seeing his dead dad's corpse and Rose and Roxy's mother's corpse in Rip's coffin]]. Notably the first time he really freaked out like this in the fan fic.
* FromBadToWorse: The entire adventure itself. While it's never meant to be taken seriously (especially given the sheer ammount of self-deprecation humor and lampshade hanging), the beginning was completely lighthearted. The second half of the Mario Intermission onwards features things such as [[spoiler:Rip showing Dave a pair of corpses (but it's NightmareRetardant due to the art style), ''one of them being his own dad's corpse''; main characters dying and being teased ''for a long time'' to be completely unambiguously dead; and more and more characters turning out to be a part of an evil plan]]. And now there's things such as Aranea bragging about the comic's death count. [[spoiler:And being ''responsible'' for a good chunk of the death count, especially in regards to the trolls.]]
** The Shipping Intermission. It starts out... [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=383 bizzare]], but harmless. Then Dave gets into a fight with Dirk's Auto Responder. [[spoiler:And then the deaths start happening. More (of the evil twin/post-scratch) trolls are permenantly killed off than in ''Homestuck'' canon so far, and two of the humans die as well. And that's ''before'' the nuke hits and kills everyone else off, including the previously unseen good twin trolls.]]
* FullFrontalAssault: One of the films in the Ice World's dating theater is about a man robbing a bank naked. And ''another'' is about a nude woman ghost/monster thing who is supposedly invincible. They later get brought to life and play this trope in a greater effect, along with Homer Simpson who decides to go naked because he noticed everyone else in the little group at the time was naked.
* GagBoobs: Jane and Jean are both implied to have "freakishly large boobs," although this isn't visible from the typical sprite style of the characters. Anything implying breasts rarley show up in "hero mode" poses, and even then it doesn't look that freakish. Appearanty "freakishly large" is shown by (or just means) the character having them period, since no other character aside from Dottie and the Curser Woman (who are both supposed to be naked) is drawn with breasts. The Trip Intermission [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=1057 shows]] that Jean's breasts are ''sagging''. (Link SFW.) ''At the age of '''12'''''.
* GambitPileup: Oh, yes. WordOfGod has said that this comic can be described as a three-person chess game between Dave, Nepeta, and Rip. A '''''COMPLICATED''''' three-person chess game, as demonstraited by him linking to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nsaAkNXAzak this]] video.
* TheGamePlaysYou: The Mario session averts this when it comes to the main people playing it, but for the trolls in Troll Town, their houses are pretty much forced to be warped into the game world. Granted, it's easy to take a pipe into 1-1 and leave, but still. Eridan actually gets fed up with it to the point that he sends Dave a large (literally) "fuck you."
* GenderBlenderName: "Joan." Worse, it's actually a [[{{Fanon}} commonly-used name for a genderbent]] ''John'', not Jane. [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=556 The angroginy is pointed out in the narration:]]
-->(Wait isn't joan a girls name?)
* TheGhost: [[RealLifeWritesTheplot Due to not being seen in the comic outside of sillouette at the time of writting several pages of the story]], the "good twin" trolls aside from Aranea and Meenah have not been seen for some time. They haven't even been involved in pesterlogs due to their quirks not being revealed back then, until they became necessary to the plot, wherein Damara's has been guessed. (The irony is that Pikmin Fan's guess of her personality was not too far from how it actually turned out.) Elitaa's hasn't either, but she has no real excuse due to being an original character.
* GISSyndrome: Like its inspiration.
* {{God}}: It turns out that the Gods of this multiverse are [[spoiler:Ed, Edd, and Eddy]].
* GoodBadBugs: In-universe. The Mario game has a few, which are exploited by the characters. Such as the backwards long jump being possible again. It's implied that these are only in the beta.
* GratuitousSpanish: Occasionally, both said by the characters and written in the captions/panels.
* GroinAttack: [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=368 Actually happens to a girl first.]] [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=487 And then another girl.]] [[http://mspfanventures.com/?adv=588&id=595 And then another.]] Finally used on a guy with [[http://mspfanventures.com/?adv=588&id=1224 Jack]]:
-->"Ow! Right between the dick!" [sic]
* HalfTheManHeUsedToBe: How [[spoiler:Vriska, Tavros, and Karkat die in the Shipping Intermission]]. Also Cleveland slices Zorin in half with her own scythe. Jaka slices Zorin in half ''again'' after she is brought back to life by Jan, except this time it's horizontally instead of vertically. [[spoiler:Karkat's "main" instance is ripped in half post-death by Vampire Jade]].
* HandOrObjectUnderwear: At one point, Homer Simpson (who is giant and naked) covers his crotch with Jade and Jake's bedroom. Unfortunatley, the window is right over his crotch, giving everyone in the room [[CensorBox but the viewers]] a full view.
* HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday: "i am not a homosexual" is appearantly John's ''catchphrase'' in the fan comic, although within the comic itself he hardly uses it.
* HiveMind: Outside of biology, assigned color, and having knowledge of the inward journey area layout, there are no initial differences between the kids and their gender reversed counterparts, leading to moments such as them typing the same thing on a memo. No, a kid never actually had a pesterchum conversation with their own counterpart (though Jean did contact John to send him the files Spongebob sent her). This amusingly did not happen between the two Johns created after the Robosanta battle, but that's presumably because one of them got the fire flower before meeting the other.
* IHatePastMe:
** Future John outright attempts to troll his past self and his copies, but then Jade from the same point in time bans him from the memo they were in and slaps him.
** [[spoiler:Dave's dreamselves made before his freakout ''really'' don't take a liking to his current self]].
* AnIcePerson: Both the [[VideoGame/PaperMario Crystal King]] and the [[WesternAnimation/AdventureTime Ice King]] appear. [[spoiler:The former kills the latter, however]]. Then there's ICE Jade, and [[spoiler:Johnsprite was becoming this due to being prototyped with the Ice King's crown but fixed it by Tricksterizing]].
* InSeriesNickname: When the Blue and Yellow team forms, Jade gives out nicknames to the twelve people present at the time. She then expands on this to everybody else:
** John: The Courage.
** Jade: The Badass Lesbian.
** Jane: The Girl Who Does Nothing but Baking.
** Jake: The Fan Service.
** Jean: The Wisdom.
** Jude: The Badass Crossdresser. (Joan, for some reason, does not get a title similar to this, but instead...)
** Joan: The Male [=PMSer=].
** Jaka: The Fan Service but with a Vagina Instead of a Penis.
** Fire John: The Fire Guy.
** Ice Jade: The Ice Girl.
** Vampire Jade: The Bloodsucker.
** Zombie Jade: The Milksucker.
** [[spoiler:Trickster John]]: The Moron
** [[spoiler:Trickster Jade]]: the Suga Fuga
** Blue Demon Jade: The Object of Jake's Desires
** Jenn: The Mentalist
* HulkingOut: John and Jean after [[spoiler:reading Geromy's death]].
-->''[[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=867 A transformation starts to both of you.]]\\

You have officially been PISSED THE FUCK OFF.[[labelnote:*]]Also yu grow twice the size but it's not noticable here.[[/labelnote]]''
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Averted to hell and back with FIRE John. Having fire powers was pretty much the best thing to happen to him. Same with ICE Jade. And debatebly with Vampire Jade, Vampire Dave, or Vampire Rose.
* InterspeciesRomance: Played straight with John/Nepeta ([[spoiler:until they break up]]), Dirk/Sollux, and discussed several times. Karkat thinks troll/human is like bestiality and compares it to the relationship between [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006 Sonic and Ellise]]. Jude also jokeingly compares it to bestiality.
* {{Irony}}:
** In ''Homestuck'', 413 was the ArcNumber for the kids, while 612 was the Arc Number for the trolls. The update on the day 4/13 actually focused exclusivly on the trolls, whereas the 6/12 update (which was short because the author was away for most of the day) focused exclusivly on the kids. [[InvokedTrope GPF takes note of this and spends the next update -- which is supposed to be the "real" 6/12 update --]] making eight panels instead of the average-at-the-time four, '''''none''''' of them so much as ''mentioning'' any of the trolls.
** Karkat, who constantly opposes troll/human dating, turns out to be part-human through ectobiology. ''His head literally '''explodes''''' when he finds this out, though thankfully it was in a dream so his realself didn't get any harm from it.
* ItMakesSenseInContext: The entire comic, as surprising as it may seem. However in most cases "context" doesn't come in for a ''long'' time.
** "ok so i think the theory that the female jake created after drinking magical gatorade in the session of the immersive mario game will go back in time and become hank hill, who is aganst her sister but especally aa sexy vampire vversion of her that was created from a game constroct ffrom a ex-frend's comic conjured by a clone of my girlfriend in a moodflippout was jossed a fe pages after it was proposed."
* JawDrop: Roxy and Dirk after Jaka and Joan (respectivly) suddenly swoop them to them, kiss them, [[WrittenSoundEffect DOOF]] them to the ground, and have a four-way makeout session with their original versions.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Jade. It's ''very'' much hidden, but it's there. Notable example include an alternate universe version of her attempting to prototype Jane's dead boyfriend over her own, her "Main" universe self defending John from... [[IHatePastMe himself]], and trying to revive him when he gets killed by Robosanta.
* JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind: Dream related mechanics show up late into Intermission Act Two. For instance, Cerulean and Yellow Nepeta have the power to enter people's dreams. They even both give [[spoiler:Fire]] John an Film/{{Inception}} by giving him instructions to a back entrance in World 8-4 in a way that he will remember them. Take notes, because it only gets more confusing from there. An ''entire arc'' takes place within dreams, and not even within the same person's dreams at that.
* JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope: [[spoiler:Dave and Rose]].
* [[spoiler:KillEmAll: The Shipping Intermission ends with everyone getting nuked after a miscalculation. The events prior to the nuking weren't going too well either: Vriska, Tavros, Gamzee, Karkat, Terezi, Dave, Aradia, Rose, Sollux, and Eridan were all killed before the sea gets nuked.]]
* KarmaHoudini: Jade. She belittles, insults, and threats a majority of characters, [[BrutalHonesty and seems 100% sincere in everything]], yet barely gets any sort of commupance. Her actions have caused [[spoiler:Dave to completely break mentally, which leads to many of the bad things that have happened over the course of the series]]. Characters do notice how terrible she is, but this usually results in them trying to kill her, [[spoiler:only to die instead. Jaka lampshades this]].
* TheyKilledKennyAgain: Jade has died '''[[spoiler:FOUR]] TIMES''' over the course of the story, and always came back. All of which are due to her 7up.
* KilledOffForReal: Most of the characters who died post-Mario Intermission. Specifically: [[spoiler:So far the entire Fox Crew bar Dottie, the entire Millennium bar Rip and Captain, every troll that isn't a Leijon or Aranea, Roxy, Dirk, both Simpsonians, every major carapace, and the entire Revenge Five (who amusingly didn't start dying off until Intermission Intermission 2, right after the "main" Mario Intermission)]].
* KudzuPlot: It's one of those stories where a ''broken window'' leads to [[spoiler:an evil baby doll head being created by the window's owner convincing a stoner clown troll into using his powers into making it, followed by the head starting a small army, one of the army members of which will then be used to ectobiologically create one of the main enemies of the window owner.]]
* LampshadeHanging: In case the title wasn't a big enough clue, this is ''not'' a fan fic that takes itself seriously.
* LaserGuidedKarma: In a way. Ever since late into Intermission Act 3, Jade has been periodically hitting on Jaka, who is pretty much her sister. Jaka naturally reacts negatively to this and is understandably creeped out. (The fact that it's ''[[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Jade]]'' makes it worse.) After the Trifold Battles arcs, Jake, her brother in this universe, randomly confesses love for her. Jade is absolutley stunned and can only answer with nervous silence.
-->Jade (thinking): oh god its not as fun when YOURE the sibling being hit on.....
* LateArrivalSpoiler: Several spoilers for ''Homestuck'' are given away without much warning, so it's strongly advized to read through just about '''''all''''' of ''Homestuck'' before getting into ''Sweet Jade and Hella John''. For instance, the very first command given in SJAHJ is basically what John and Jade were doing by the end of Act ''Five''.
** Not exactly ''Homestuck'' related: ''Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals''[='=]s first AN warns that it will give away a [[TheButlerDidIt certain spoiler]] in chapter 4. ([[spoiler:Namely, Walter is a traitor.]]) SJAHJ, however, reveals this exact same certain spoiler casually once the Fox Crew's hit list was seen. While [[spoiler:Walter]] is drawn in such a manner that [[spoiler:he could resemble Rip, who wasn't on the list at first]], the description pretty much reveals it further.
** Segments involving Dave during Intermission Act 4 have been revealing or implying certain events of the ''Total Drama'' series. The narration cuts itself off before revealing one [[YourCheatingHeart particularly]] [[EliminationHoudini controversial]] [[ShipSinking twist]] in the third season, ([[spoiler:Duncan returning and kissing Gwen]]) but then the command to a later page pretty much reveals this:
-->[I] DS: Pull a Duncan from ''Total Drama'' and [[spoiler:unexpectedly come out of nowhere to hog up the spotlight yet again. Also, pull a Duncan in that you ignite a really shitty, overdone love n-drangle debate shortly after your appearance.]]
:: : And ''then'' there's the whole "heather to my alejandro" comparason, whatever that would mean.
** The premise to Spongebob's final fan fic, when the title is taken into consideration, spoils one of the plot points of ''Housestuck Hurrcain Crconikals''. Another one seems to spoil the ending of said fic.
* Laws of Gender Bending: It's not ''traditional'' gender bending so much as it is OppositeSexClone creation, but from the counterparts' point of view it is.
** FirstLawOfGenderBending: Played straight and inverted. Two guys and two girls each get a genderbended counterpart, and the female-to-male ones seem no less "permenant" than the male-to-female ones.
** SecondLawOfGenderBending: True for Jaka, not as much for the other three. (They hate it at first to varying levels. Joan, who freaks out about it the most, is the first and currently only one who was upset to get over it.)
** ThirdLawOfGenderBending: Averted with all of the actual counterparts, arguably played straight with John's "inner female self".
* LazyArtist: Most of the time. Animation either happens off screen or -- from around Intermission Act 3 onwards -- achieved by copy-pasting part of the image and moving it to a different spot.
* LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt:
** [[invoked]]Lampshaded at the end of Act 2 Act 1. [[spoiler:Rose is stabbed with Kanaya's chainsaw, and underneath her "DEAD" caption there's a "for now..." And unsurprisingly, she does not die completely]].
** [[spoiler:Then averted with the same character, who has gotten a mortal injury. Her sister and Dirk have also both died]].
* LivingProp: The trolls, [[EnsembleDarkhorse of all people]], are made into this during [=IA4=]. To cement this, there's even panels where they appear in the foreground but don't actually say anything on the respective page, appearantly just to remind the readers that they were still there. Elitaa got this the worst, which is ironic since she was supposed to be a borderline ParodySue. Later onto Act Two Act Two, and Aranea is now pretty much the only remotley important non-Leijon troll in the cast, with the rest being [[spoiler:her pawns to serving the Millennium]].
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: So there's eight kids, four gender flipped counterparts to half of the kids, one copy of one of the kids with fire powers, God-knows-how-many copies of another one of the kids, twenty six "regular" troll kids, twelve ectoclones of one of the trolls, four "major" members of the Fox Crew, twelve "side" members of the same group, the Revenge Five, seventeen members of the Millennium, two Simpsonians UU and uu(/Edith and Edmund Quimby), eight human ancestors, thirteen troll ancestors, odd ones out Good Yoshi and Spongebob, and countless parts of the Mario game such as The Evil, The Princess, and the other seven world bosses. The comic started out with just John, Jade, Good Yoshi, and a cameo by Hank Hill, but in Intermission Act 2 the cast exploded, and it exploded again in Intermission Act 4 onwards.
* LukeIAmYourFather: [[spoiler:Dave and Karkat/Kankri are half-ectosiblings thanks to Nepeta]]. Also, while on meth, Roxy [[spoiler:encounters a John that is slightly more similar to canon John. He says that he and Jade are related. Since they aren't in ''this'', the quote makes Roxy freak out]].
* MassiveNumberedSiblings[=/=]TangledFamilyTree: As of now, there are five Egbert kids (seven if you count [[spoiler:Trickster John]] and "Jenn") and nine Harley kids, with a possible tenth if the red demon Jade seen twice is actually from the same universe. The real kicker? Each of those kid sets were born '''''as one person''''' (aside from maybe Red Demon Jade), which split into good/evil twin pairs thanks to Rip, which split even more throughout the adventure and is showing no signs of stopping. Let's not even get started on how Nepeta has twelve clones, each with a different ecto/hemoparent.
* MesACrowd: Use 1-ups right, and you'll end up cloning yourself. Which is done accidentally to John. One of the Johns gets a fire flower and becomes FIRE John Egbert, avoiding confusion unless he loses the powerup. He doesn't lose it in the course of the session, but afterwards he switches his outfit, along with ICE Jade, who was made under a very similar situation.
* MindScrewdriver: There are several explanations of almost everything in this story.
** Intermission Act Three begins with Jade reading a GameFAQS entry written by the author in conherant text, explaining the mechanics of the game a little.
** A few pages after, GPF (the author, not the avatar) ''actually draws a map'' of the inward journey area to show exactly how it works.
** [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=746 [I] GPF: Recap.]] There's supposed to be a second one for Intermission Act Four and the Trip Intermission, but that one is still under construction. There's also ''another'' unfinished recap, this one spanning from the beginning of Act Two to just before the war arc.
** The [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=773 explaination of dream mechanics.]]
** [[http://mspfanventures.com/?adv=588&id=847 "This is getting kind of confusing..."]]
* MixAndMatchCritters: Darkhorse is half skeleton monster, half horse.
* MonsterMash: The very group of protagonists eventually grows into this. The Blue and Yellow Team consists of eight "normal" humans, a human with pyrokinesis, a human with cyrokinesis, a vampire, a zombie, a water demon, two [[spoiler:saccharide and vaugley angelic beings]], and a ghost that used to be part of one of the human's mind. Similarly, the Millennium consists of several vampires, an illusionist witch, a quantum catboy, a vampire who is a borderline EldritchAbomination, a werewolf, a [[spoiler:cyborg]], a mad scientist, a ''hydra'', a ghost made out of water, a giant mecha, and a centaur with a skeleton half replacing the human half.
* MoodWhiplash: Spongebob's [[spoiler:last words towards Jean]] is one of the few moments in the comic that can be considered genuinley sad/heartwarming, depending on who you ask. The very next page is [[spoiler:Edmund asking Edith what the loud sound of Prospit's Moon crashing in the ocean was, with Edith reponding with a YourMom joke, using one of Dave's smilies from canon, and blocking him for no real reason]]. Of course before that Jean noticed the details about the Shipping Wall, leading to some really weird fourth wall joke.
* MoralityPet: John and Jane to Jade. And no, not in the moirail sense. Both of Jade's JerkWithAHeartOfGold examples listed above involve doing something good for them. The former of the two Morality Pets acts as a genuine friend to her and is one of the few people she ''doesn't'' personally insult regularly (playful teasing is fair game though) while the latter has, during a point early into April, started trying to snap Jade into being a proper human being.
* MotiveDecay: The Millennium are a group attempting to take over the economy in LawfulEvil methods, rather than a ChaoticEvil group of Neo-Nazis. The reason being was that Lord Major Quimby essentially broke into one of their meetings, kicked Major's ass, and took over while demoting Major to the Janitor.
* NeverLiveItDown: In-universe, Jade never forgives Karkat for accidentally directing her to the wrong warp pipe back in the Mario Session.
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: Dave parodies this [[spoiler:even before he turned evil, but ''especially'' after]].
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Hank Hill's revenge scheme for breaking his window [[spoiler:eventually bites him when a chain of events leads to Homer Simpson being made, who is then used to create Lord Major Quimby. You know, the guy Hank was after in the first place.]]
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: Waterwraith actually kills one of its own comerades.
* NoIndoorVoice: The Captain, along with speaking in all caps like he did in ''Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals'' (in spite of his rarley talking in canon), also speaks in rediculously large text. Although subverted when the Waterwraith tells him to quiet down. He does, but his text is still written in all caps, impling that he's still screaming, only not as loudly.
* NoNudityTaboo: Homer Simpson. (Don't ask.) Also the naked bank robber and the Curser Woman. For all three of them, this is PlayedForLaughs more than it is for fan service.
* NonIndicativeName: The Shipping Intermission has little to do with romance at all.
* {{Nosebleed}}: Happens to Jade towards the end of Intermission Act One, which leads to the separation arc of the duo in early Intermission Act Two. Oddly, this is one of the few points in the comic that human blood is drawn as dark red.
* NukeEm: [[spoiler:The ending to the Shipping Intermission.]]
* NotSoStoic:
** Twice near the end of Intermission Act Three. [[spoiler:Dirk becomes stunned to the point where he only 'says' ":O!!!!", and later on Dave's reaction to seeing his father and Rose and Roxy's mother's corpses as familiars in Rip's coffin.]]
** Dave in Act 2 in general. Although in context, ''this is not a good thing''.
* NumberOfTheBeast: 616 is a bit of an ArcNumber here.
** One notable example is that the version of the Mario game John and Jade are beta testing is V6.16, which is the reversion where the developers decided to try to make the game constructs be as life-like as possible. They succeeded. Too well.
** Page 616 was the reveal of the Crocker Blade. Page 666 was when [[spoiler:Stan and Peter died for the second time]].
* OffWithHisHead: Hank Hill decapitates Jan. And in the Shipping Intermission, [[spoiler:Eridan gets his head punched off by Equius]].
* OhCrapReaction: Dave's reaction when Terezi tells his future future dreamself that she's gallowsCalibrator.
* OnlySaneMan: Dave. Even the narration clears when he "be" him or "see" him.[[labelnote:Note]]The latter reffers to the narration around him, not whenever he is on screen.[[/labelnote]] Rip also continues playing this from ''Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals'', [[AxCrazy although "sane" might not be the proper word]].
* OnlySixFaces: Averted for the crossover characters across eachother; they are all drawn in a unique "default pose" with the exceptions of Peter and Cleveland (though that's possibly for TakeThat purposes at how the latter can be seen as an {{Expy}} for the former in canon). However, those sprites in question are used a good chunk of the time, but it's less noticable after the Mario Intermission as their subplot doesn't take up as much of the screen time.
* OppositeSexClone: John, Jade, Jane, and Jake each get one; in fact, most of Intermission Act 3 was about them going through their "inward journeys" (largly inspirted by the spirit quest in ''Problem Sleuth'') and creating them. Each of them also have had an issue once made:
** Jean (John's counterpart): Back-hurting breasts.
** Jude (Jade's counterpart): He thinks he can't make dirty jokes without getting away from it as easily.
** Joan (Jane's counterpart): He's the only one that actually doesn't like being in a new gender, period. Though at first it was just his hair before he realized his change.
** [[AwesomeMcCoolname Jaka]] (Jake's counterpart): She actually has no problem at all and even likes her new form. (The narrator at first says she has an issue with her name.)
* OurMonstersAreWeird: One of the bosses in the Mario game is made out of gold and dollar bills. Plus a diamond.
* OverlyLongGag: [[http://mspfanventures.com/?adv=588&id=1310 Kanaya listing why Nepeta is pretty much the only reasonable female romantic option for John.]] She leaves out the alter egos, but still.
* PaintingTheMedium:
** During the "Sweet TROLLS and Hella MORE TROLLS" segment, the arrows were turned into "============>" (which became "=============>" after the introduction of Elitaa). Also (forum only), the thread title always remained as STAHMT, with the subtitles still being added. This also applied for the beginning of Intermission Act Four and for the very brief Sweet Jake and Hella Jane segment.
*** After the introduction of each counterpart, the arrows change from "==>" to "=-=>," then to "===>," "-===>," and finally "====>." Fire John complained about not being represented, so it extended to "-====>." Then to "=====>" with Ice Jade. Then to "=====->" for Vampire Jade, post-[=A2I1=]. ''Then'' to "======>" after the reveal of [[spoiler:Trickster Jade]], "======->" with the reveal of Zombie Jade, "=======->" after counting Johnsprite and Jennsprite, and finally "========>" when [[spoiler:Trickster Jade]] created Blue Demon Jade. [[spoiler:Then Trickster John makes a bunch more alter egoes]] and the narrator gets fed up with arrows, going back to "==>" and it's implied to stay that way until Act 3.
** Mirror only: In most cases, the "hide" text for a spoiler is "CLOSE THIS SHIT." However, when we're as Dave or Rip narrates, "Hide X" is used instead.
*** During Kanaya's recap, "CLOSE THIS SHIT" was still used, only written in her quirk. It's written in John's quirk when he was explaining as to how he met Jade.
** The "Sweet Rose and Hella Dave" segment at the beginning of Intermission Act 4 reverts back to the old "==>" arrows, presumably standing for Rose, Roxy, Dave, and the Auto Responder. Also, at the beginning, the thread was titled "Sweet Rose and Hella Dave," and during the Rose and Roxy updates, it was retitled to "Sweet Rose and Hella Roxy," the updeats on Dave and AR's part being retitled "Sweet AR and Hella Dave."
** [[spoiler:When Jade gets killed by the Caliginous Miles, the title changes to "Hella John."]]
* PairTheSpares: Averted. This comic has Jane/Jake and Dave/Rose as couples, but not their "counterparts" Roxy/Dirk (much to Roxy's dismay) and John/Jade (much to Karkat's dismay, since he doesn't like how they keep hitting on trolls). And speaking of the trolls, only about half of them are in flushed relationships: Karkat/Equius, Terezi/Feferi, Gamzee/Aradia, and troll/human relation John/Nepeta.
* ParodySue:
** Nepeta.
** Averted with the Sinoises, who contrary to common MarySue OC stereotypes invoked in most parodies, are going to be so unimportant that they came painfully close to being some of the ''very few'' characters in the fan fic to never contribute anything at all to the plot. [[spoiler:Elitaa died offscreen]], and around the update where that spoiled action in question happened, Pikmin Fan flat-out confessed to not liking putting them in the story in the first place.
** [[invoked]] "Blue Demon Jade," an alter-ego of Jade spawned by [[spoiler:Trickster Jade]]. Specifically of the SympatheticSue varriety, and through playing the LastOfHisKind trope to rediculous levels.
** Dave's inner female self/Dove.
* PeekABangs: Dave's latest redesign has part of his hair covering one of his eyes. (It didn't at first until after the Forum Update Hiatus.) There is no reason at all for this other than him thinking it looks cool.
* PetTheDog: During WorldWarII, the Condecse was actually on the side of the Allies. [[spoiler:Although this was because Rip made it troublesome for her to take over Earth.]]
* PissTakeRap: Jade and Jude's "[[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=542 Marge Simpson]] [[GoingCommando goes commando]]" rap. Seriously, it rhymes "coitus" with "soy-miss." Also, [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=761 Kanaya's rap]]. Pretty much any rap is going to have really, ''really'' cheesy lyrics.
* PlatonicLifePartners: Appearantly John and Jade, but it's really ''much'' more complicated than that.
* {{Polyamory}}: Between Jane, Jake, and both of their OppositeSexClone[=s=].
* [[{{Prelap}} Postlap]]: The ending of Jade's ancestor story deals with [[spoiler:the deaths of Dave and Dirk's dad and Rose and Roxy's mom, with Jade saying that there's a rumor that some vampire stole their corpses. It then cuts to what's in Rip's coffin: said ancestors' dead bodies being controlled by Rip, with Jade still narrating that there isn't anything to proove this rumor.]]
* PornStash: Jade's ''Boobs'' magazines. She seems to have no problems with reading it in front of John, though. Jake also owns some magazines in this series, and during the Shipping Intermission, just about everyone accuses Jane of owning ''Boobs''[='=]s SpearCounterpart ''Penis''. [[http://mspfanventures.com/?adv=588&id=768 Roxy also owns several issues of]] ''Penis''.
* PutOnABus: ''Trol Seasson'' characters appear at times, only for both of them to "leave the story," meaning they're gone for good.
* RagtagBunchOfMisfits:
** Even though they consist of two sets of siblings, the core protagonist group as of Act Two (John, Jade, Jake, and Jane) is this. We have a movie fanboy who used to worship the person who became the main antagonist of the act; a perverted hipster who's in love with Marge Simpson and her own brother; an adventure loving dork who has a couple hitting on him; and a cake-baker with an OppositeSexClone that has anger issues.
** The Fow Crew, once all sixteen members of them have been revealed. They consist of a BadassNormal [[WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill propane sailsman, his three drinking buddies,]] [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy three]] [[WesternAnimation/AmericanDad household]] [[WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow husbands]] and their respective wifes, one of the family's dog, two of one of said husband's friends, one of another said husband's frend, a nudist friend, and a foul-mouth guy with an afro.
* RainbowSpeak:
** Parodied. So John and Jade have to kill "The Evil" (maroon, also written in comic sans), save "the Princess/Pincess" (magenta), and get "the kiss/the kisss" (blue) from her. Jade was told of this from a "helpful informant" (white). Also, later on we have a "kickass reward" (lime), AKA the chaos emeralds.
** Jean's exposition in Intermission Act Three to Jade avoids this, using underlining for important terms. Although this really serves as a ShoutOut to the early spritelogs with Nannasprite.
* RealLifeWritesThePlot: The reason for the "good twin" trolls aside from Aranea and Meenah appearing for so long. This includes Puerco, but for a different reason: Pikmin Fan admitted he simply hasn't drawn the sprite for yet. When the narration ''does'' truley focus on them as a group for the first time, only four of the five revealed are mentioned. (The fifth, Meenah, is screwing around in the Captor's house.)
* RedHerring:
** There are a few signs during [=IA3=] and a little of [=IA2=] that implied that Roxy has gone sober, became an expy of Sober Gamzee, and attempted to kill Rose. The first page showing them had Roxy in a tank aimed at Rose, [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=517 then where was a pesterlog where she typed in the exact same way Gamzee did]] (and she said OH WAIT shortly after mentioning that John must "marry a Rose"), and once Rose and Roxy are seen again, they have bad injuries. Injuries that even slightly resemble what canon Gamzee had after he used Nepeta's claws to scratch himself. Really now, it turned out that [[spoiler:the tank she had was only to uncover a treasure map, and the injuries came from a random dog attacking them while they were trying to get the key for a treasure chest. The pesterlog was just Roxy screwing around, plain and simple]]. What's more, the Shipping Intermission implied that [[spoiler:Sober Roxy in this fic is just a ''really'' shy geeky girl]]. However, in Act 2, [[spoiler:Roxy ''does'' seem to be verging on the mentally unstable side]].
** Implications that [[spoiler:Jaka is Hank Hill and Vampire Jade is Rip Van Winkle]]. Though this was not without warning the second the theory was proposed: John lampshaded how terrible both twists would be a few pages after the former is raised, and characters frequently comment on it. Now that Jaka and Vampire Jade have swapped their text colors back this theory is all but completely sunk.
* RedemptionEqualsSex: [[spoiler:Darkleer and the Dolorosa]].
* RedOniBlueOni: Several:
** John (red) to Jade (blue), up until the ending of [=IA2=]. After that, it mostly became Red Oni Who Sometimes Goes Blue (John), and Red''der'' Oni Who Almost Never Goes Blue (Jade).
** Jake (red) to Jane (blue). Their counterparts, interestingly, are switched.
** Hank (blue) to the other three major Fox Crew members (red).
** Captain (red) to Rip (blue), though during Intermission Act Four onwards it's the other way around.
** Quimby (red) to Omega Drew Pickles (blue).
** uu/Edmund (red) to UU/Edith (blue). This is even reflected in their ideal text colors.
** Roxy (red) to Rose (blue).
** Dave (red) to Dirk (blue).
* RetCon:
** Parodied with Jade's text color when playing as Luigi. It gets ret-conned back when she answers Rip for the first time in the adventure. Also happens when the author got the color of Tubalcain Alhambra's suit wrong.
** Pikmin Fan pretty much appoligizes for taking the ShipperOnDeck aspect of Roxy and exaggerating it to creepy extremes with the reveal that [[spoiler:she was infected by a "shipper worm"]]. And Kanaya's TotallyRadical personality is only while she's high. Still no excuse for Jade being so perverted and volitile, or Karkat [[http://mspfanventures.com/?adv=588&id=926 being physically violent with his friends]]. The first of all these problems, however, suddenly came back in full force after [[spoiler:Roxy decides to join Dave and Rose's group]].
* RonTheDeathEater:
** In-universe, Auto Responder and Terezi for the Shipping Intermission. [[spoiler:Possibly invoked given how the thing was written by Spongebob]].
** This is probably the only ''Homestuck'' fan fic where [[spoiler:Pre-scratch Dave, Rose, Roxy, and Dirk]] are '''''all''''' villains. It really says a lot when the former three have done acts worse than what the trolls have done. WordOfGod says that this was due to a lack of any [[spoiler:kid vs kid]] battlefics in the fandom.
* RuleOfSymbolism: (FIRE) John protects Jade from getting his by Red/Flushed miles, then Dave protects both of them from getting hit with miles of the same color. Then [[spoiler:Dave and Jade are suddenly hit with Caliginous Miles]]. John/Jade and John/Dave have been teased a lot, yet Dave and Jade don't really work as a couple in that universe.
* RunningGag:
** A character denying any Jade/guy pairing because Jade is a lesbian. This seemed to stop around Intermission Act 4.
** John fainting at the mention of Rose. The first time this happens, amusingly, Nepeta snaps him out of it before he faints.
** "Show [Person or type of person group]log" sometimes, replacing pesterlog or dialoglog.
** To a lesser extent, in the Shipping Intermission, [[spoiler:a few characters get sliced in half, Eridan ''not'' being one of them even though that was how he died in canon]].
** The phrase "o ok then."
** During the second character select screen, all four of the paths involve a Nepeta clone in some way. For each of them, once the clone is shown, Nepeta is reffered to as the "most impurrtant character in SJAHJ." Every path aside from the Robosanta path introduces at least one new color, with the Robosanta path in question elaborating on Maroon Nepeta's abilities by [[spoiler:showing her other body, which ''technically'' counts as a new Nepeta]].
** The phrase "X sucks raw asscocks" and variants.
** From late into Act Two Act Two (though the first time this was used was back in Intermission Act Four), Lake Arlen is totaly not any sort of lake from the ''Zelda'' franchise. Especially not Lake Hylia. Nope, not at all.
* SailorEarth: Elitaa was a parody before essentially vanishing to extra. Although her gag was to ''replace'' Karkat to some extent; their troll tags even have the same initials and Edmund jeers her to stop replacing him and Edith.
* ScrewYourself:
** Subverted. John has a dream where his "inner female self" tries to make out with him. He respondes by ''kicking her in the groin''. When he sees Jean, who resembles his female counterpart, he does the same.
** In [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=722 this page]], Jake and Jane's tounges are notably not touching the tounges of their respective counterparts.
** Hinted at early in Act 2 when Ice Jade says that she thinks John has a crush on his pyrokinetic version. Non-Ice Jade then imagines the two kissing, thinking that it's hot.
* SelfDeprecation: [=IA3's=] opening[[labelnote:Note]]Technically it's more of the preface to the act, since it isn't the page titled with Intermission Act Three[[/labelnote]] is Jade reading Great Pikmin Fan's walkthrough on the fictional Mario game. It basically {{Flanderize}}[=s=] GPF's own writting style, and in the page after the narrator comments that Jade can't understand his walkthrough because he takes too long to get to the point.
* SequenceBreaking: Jade attempts to do this in Intermission Act 1, by taking her and John to the Warp Zone to skip the first seven worlds. This doesn't exactly work. Especially for Jade.
* ShaggyDogStory: [[spoiler:Getting "the kisss". At the point in the story where the Princess meets with the plumber players and they ''aren't'' struggling with a villain, three of them are in a relationship (two of which in a relationship with eachother plus their counterparts), four of them are away, and one of them the Princess doesn't want to kiss because she smells like dead fish]].
* ShipperOnDeck:
** [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=178 Karkat ships John/Jade.]] And agressivly, at that. Though he really just doesn't want any troll/human relationships and he quickly picked up on their... [[LampshadeHanging closeness.]]
-->FCG: "YOU KNOW YOU JOHN N JADE IF YOU SUCH FRENDS YOU SHOULD STOP DROOLIN OVER TROLLS AND WHY NOT JUST FUCK EECHOTHER?"\\
Much later on in an image, "'JADE'S A LESBIAN' MY ASS. YOU KNOW THERE'S SOMETHING BETWEEN THEN." He oddly strikes out Jade/Dave in the same image, and his commentary consists entirley of "NOPE." [[spoiler:Act 2 reveals that they have a really, ''really'' fucked up friendship, so in hindsight there's no wonder as to why Karkat's thoughts on that was essentially a NoJustNoReaction]].
:: :Spongebob ships them as well, although even ''more'' agressivly. And there's a reason: He believes [[spoiler:that every other romantic option is evil, incestuous, sexuality erasing (this isn't against Jade's sexuality since it's '''''heavily''''' implied that she's not really lesbian), or leaves John and Jake without romantic partners]].
** Roxy seems to ship Dave/Jade and John/Rose. Except that [[RunningGag Jade's a lesbian]], Dave and Rose are in a relationship with eachother, and John used to faint around Rose until ''very'' recently. And she ships Jane/Jake and Dirk/herself, and while the former is working out, the latter isn't. Karkat thinks that Roxy wanting to be with Dirk is just a wish fulfilling dream of hers.
** Prospit and Derse seem to heavily ship Dave/Rose, partially because of the kernel prototyped with dreamselvs of both of them that was carried into the towers, and they themselves were already a couple.
* ShipSinking: This adventure has a nasty habit of axing FanPreferredCouple[=s=], to the extent that Pikmin Fan actually wishes the reader good luck at the opening Author's Notes. At the rate this comic is going, the only possible endgame couples are Dave/Rose, John/Jade, and/or Jane/Jake, and even then none of those three look too shabby. (Except for the former, which ironically [[spoiler:contains the ''least'' stable character when Act Two Act One ends]].)
** Jake and Dirk's ''[[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=264 very first on screen conversation]]'' [[spoiler:basically blows any chance of the two getting together]]. Jake doing it in a blunt manner doesn't really help. [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=719 Although there is this...]] [[spoiler:nope Dirk turned to the darkside Dirk/Jake isn't happening close up shop people]].
** Nepeta/Karkat after the former realizes the latter is dating a human. Prior to this, there was actually some chance of them getting together, assuming Nepeta breaks up with John first. [[spoiler:Which ''does'' happen, but much later]].
** If the name of Roxy's PornStash is anything to go by, she's straight. There goes "Cotton Candy." (Oh yeah, and now there's [[spoiler:how Roxy is now on the side of a murderer simply because of her obsession with shipping]].) Also, Jane is straight as well, with the exact same evidence.
** Every ship with a kid and their patron troll from canon, except possibly John/Vriska [[spoiler:assuming Vriska and Tavros's relationship hits a fault]]. (Which at this rate is impossible regardless; after all, [[RuleOfFunny what's so funny about couples people actually ''want'' hooking up?]]) Dave has Terezi blocked due to an unseen death threat and Rose does not appear ammused at Kanaya when she's stonned. Both of these happened ''before'' [[spoiler:Dave and Rose start trying to kill everyone else]]. And let's not even get '''''started''''' on Jade/Karkat.
*** More spefically, Rose/Kanaya during a... sort-of flashback. Whatever [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=1142 this drug trip]] can be considered. And now [[spoiler:Davosesprite (without the Rose part) asked Rose to flat-out kill Kanaya because she suspects them of attempting to get Jade killed. ''And Rose actually attempts to murder her'', which only fails because Kanaya managed to fend herself off just in time, which also very intentionally led to Rose's death.]]
*** And [[spoiler:Dave/Terezi after Terezi crosses one of Dave's many bizarre, unhinted lines by comparing him to Sasuke Uchiha. He stabs her ''from her computer screen'']].
*** This comic's designated patrons and their ships aren't safe either, though this isn't as big since the most popular out of them is still crack: [[spoiler:Nepeta broke up with John due to picking up on the sheer ammount of ShipTeasing between him and other characters, Kanaya decided to vent out on Jade just before dying and used her death as a sort of end punctuation to the rant, Jake and Feferi are screwed up in many, many ways, and Jane/Equius was never really a thing in the first place]].
** Jade being a lesbian. Although according to her, [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=526 there are ways around it....]] And then there's the several implications that she's only actually bisexual.
*** ...And Dave/Jade specifically [[SerialEscalation blows all of the above examples out of the water, even the three out of four patron ships.]] [[spoiler:Dave (and possibly Rose) pretty much has urges to kill Jade, and whenever he's blamed for actually attempting to kill her, he gets someone to kill the person who blames him.]] Not counting how Jade probably thinks Dave is completely and utterly pathetic, and at one point her vampire ego insults him almost as bad as she insults Karkat. '''''Even more,''''' their hidden hatred was what kicked off the main plot for the last pages of Act 2 Act 1 and all of the plot in Act 2 Act 2 so far. Even though this all happened ''after'' Karkat's "corrections" to Roxy's shipping grid occured, it's really no wonder why in hindsight Karkat's comment on that pairing in this universe was just "NOPE."
** [[spoiler:Any and every possible human Prospit Dreamer/human Derse Dreamer ship. If the attempted murder of Kanaya wasn't a sign that Dave and Rose crossed the line, then them and Roxy and Dirk destroying a Middle School did.]]
* ShipTease: Sweet ''Jegus'', where do we begin on that. John/Jade is by far the most teased couple during the Mario Intermission (even though Jade's a lesbian), with John/Dave supposed to follow that. [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=212 These]] [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=526 two]] pages are by far the most blatant example of the former. The Trip Intermission and Act 2 are so far implying John/Equius and Jade/Kanaya (even though ''both'' people in the former are in a relationship with someone else), complete with Equius finding out John doesn't consider himself a homosexual, and asks if he could... "[[ThatCameOutWrong make]] [[EvenTheGuysWantHim him]] [[StupidSexyFlanders one.]]"
* ShoutOut:
** The Shipping Intermission has one to ''Literature/OfMiceAndMen''.
** The cheat that allows for an infinite ammount of party members to fight in a Mario session rather than just three is the [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Bolero of Fire]], only transfered to keyboard format.
** Hydra is based off of the three[[labelnote:Note]]Actually five, but two of them are of the same type.[[/labelnote]] dragon boss battles in the 3DS Argumented Reality games.
** Jade's nonsensical and somewhat insulting names for her teammates and self to the "names" of the Troll Slayers in ''Webcomic/TailsGetsTrolled''.
-->''Jade: [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=1751 together we make... THE BLUE AND YELLOW TEAM!!!!]]
* ShootTheShaggyDog:
** [[spoiler:The Shipping Intermission]].
** [[spoiler:Everything in regards to Spongebob, up to and including the Shipping Intermission, which was his own fan fiction]].
** [[spoiler:Anything building up John/Rose or (though this didn't get as much focus) Dave/Jade. The chances of these pairings happening is next to impossible, because Rose, Dave, Dirk, and Roxy are all evil and verging on the insane side. Not to mention how Jade has made it clear several times -- once onscreen through a long rant -- that she hates the Strider family]].
** [[spoiler:Hank's storyline]].
* [[ShowWithinAShow Series Within a Comic]]: ''Coolstuck'', a comic by Dave about 3 guys who play a game. Just as SJAHJ is supposed to be ''Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff'' with ''Homestuck'' characters, CS is supposed to be ''Homestuck'' with ''Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff'' characters. Also, Dave was the writter of this universe's versions of ''Jailbreak'', ''Bardquest'', and ''Problem Sleuth''.
* ShowDontTell: Inovked with the differences between the alter-egos and their originals. Also, Equius and Feferi are supposed to be Jane and Jake's patron trolls respectivley, but all there is to show for that is that they've been hitting on them during memos. Kanaya's patronage with Jade and to a lesser extent Nepeta's patronage with John are a lot more clear.
* ShrugOfGod: Great Pikmin Fan himself is unsure as to what the hell the Shipping Intermission is supposed to symbolize outside of foreshadowing a few events later on in the comic. He also confirmes a few times that occasionally he just makes stuff up about the story.
* SiblingRivalry: John and Jane are rather... competitive in the Mario game. Or, at least they were, before teaming up during the inward journey.
* SirSwearsALot: Several characters, including John and especially Jade. "Fuck" was the very first word of dialogue said in the entire comic.
** Taken UpToEleven with Fox Crew member Fuckass Mike (the only OriginalCharacter on the team), who's quirk is that he says "motherfucking" before ''every noun''.
** UU/Edith has sworn at least once in every conversation she's been involved in.
* SlapSlapKiss: It's implied that the relationship between [[spoiler:Jade and Jake's mother and Dave and Dirk's father]] was like this.
* SlapstickKnowsNoGender: Between Jade having a modis that repeatedly punches her (as well as getting a nosebleed which leads to being punched off a ship), Kanaya getting hit in the face with Vriska's butt (it makes less sense in context), Rose and Roxy getting mauled by a dog, and Jane, Jean, and Jaka getting kicked between the legs before ''anyone else'', it's safe to say that no female character whatsoever is safe from SBAHJ-esque shinanegans.
* SpotlightStealingSquad: Dave during the beginning of [=IA4=]. Hell, even a bit after. "Sweet Rose and Hella Dave" ''was'' supposed to be focused on them, Roxy, and AR equally, and Rose and Roxy's plot does involve only them. However, Dave's part barley includes AR more than the other eight people that contacted him. The part from when the character select screen ended to when the perspective shifts back to John and Jade had Dave as almost entirley the main character, with the Lalondes barley getting any spotlight. This has since been dealt with by [[spoiler:making Dave a villain in Act 2... though from there he becomes more relevant and more of a threat than ''Rip'', the comic's designated main villain]]. Lampshaded when Dave and Rip have appearantly started a debate over relevancy.
* StaircaseTumble: Oddly averted. In fact, one of the thread titles was "where stairs are surprisingly friendly."
* TheStarscream: [[spoiler:Rip, who actually ''succeeds'' in dethroning Quimby. She currently has a bunch of familiars released all over World 8, but since every kid is out of the Mario session (or at least World 8, in Teal Nepeta's case), she doesn't pose a threat to them. Yet.]]
* StatusQuoIsGod: The Mario Intermission was rather static for the most part; none of the human kids or troll kids die permenantly, and the Fox Crew and Millennium keep killing off members of eachother only for them to come back. [[spoiler:However, in Intermission Act 4, Fox Crew deaths became "permenant," and during Act 2 all of the group in question die]].
* StealthPun: The Shipping Intermission's ships are not-so-subtle puns, mostly of fandom IdiosyncraticShipNaming:
** The ship Dave starts out in is massive and called the [[{{Slash}} S.S. Slasher]].
** Rose (and Roxy) are riding a plush of {{Shrek}}, an orge, with needles in its eyes. [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=003486 Sound familiar?]]
** Karkat's (stolen) ship bears the logo of communism. Hammer + sickle, their weapons in both ''Homestuck'' and SJAHJ.
** Jade's ship is the yellow ship from the beginning of SJAHJ. Also nicknamed a "Prospit Ship" even though Prospit doesn't exist, reffering to John and Jade's dream moon.
* StraightGay: Jade, Jean, Joan, and Jaka. Although Jade... is pretty perverted.
* StripPoker: Cleveland Brown and Tubalcain Alhambra are first seen playing this, even though they're supposed to be fighting.
* StunnedSilence: Dirk's :O!!!! expression.
* StylisticSuck: And yet, it doesn't use [=JPEGs=] until the last page before the end of Intermission Act 3. And it barley uses them since.
* SuddenlySexuality:
** Jade is supposed to be only attracted to girls, yet one page shows that she finds two guys kissing to be "kinda hot," complete with giving a "Drew Pickles smile."
** During the Dave's IFS arc, Kanaya claims herself to now be bi, then switches back to only being attracted to girls after looking at Dirk's ass.
* TankGoodness: [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=117 The first page with Rose and Roxy]] shows the latter in a tank. What exactly is going on isn't revealed until over six hundred pages later, where it turns out [[spoiler:Roxy was just trying to blow a hole in the wall to uncover a hidden treasure map.]]
* TakeThat: [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=910 This page]] and the following is one to the "forevver alone" meme surrounding Eridan.
* TeasingCreator: Mild example: The fan fic endlessly teases-but-they-aren't-a-couple-yet Prospitcest during the first few acts. Jade and Jude even almost kiss Jean at one point, before John brings up his relationship with Nepeta. But because of the polygamy-issue, Jean and Jade are now ''this'' close to being a couple in this fan fic. ''And then [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=794 this]] happens''. But if anything that page raises hope for the pairing in question, especially seeing as [[spoiler:all other romantic love options are slowly turning to the evil side]].
* ThatCameOutWrong: Cronus telling Karkat that he's "never in the mood..." the mood for Cronus hitting on him, of course.
* ThemeInitials: Hank Hill and Rip Van Winkle's chumhandles (rightWorker and hellishHuntress, respectivly) have eachother's initials.
* ToiletHumor: The later part of Intermission Act One. Which leads you to wonder exactly what John was doing with a laxative.
* TotallyRadical: John and Jade. Was originally supposed to apply to nearly everyone, but the author decided against that, attempting to keep the other characters more true to their canon selfs. Except Kanaya, who fell victim to John and Jade's characters.
* {{Troll}}:
** Spongebob Squarepants sends threats and manipulates the heroes into reading his shipping fan fics. It's revealed in Act 2 Intermission 1 that this is all an act, in revenge for three different Jades chewing him out in the first conversations from his perspective.
** John acts like a troll to his own past selves, to the extent that even ''Jade'' finds it cruel. '''''[[EvenEvilHasStandards Jade.]]'''''
** And Jade [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=1473 seems to be taking up trolling tendancies.]]
** Roxy, on a more meta level, for impersonating two villains from ''Homestuck'' (sober Gamzee and Lord English) in pesterlogs. And the first of which raised a mystery for a decently-long ammount of time (Beginning of Intermission Act Three to beginning of Intermission Act Four.)
* TrollingCreator: Dave in-universe. He's responce to when John, FIRE John, and Jean read about [[spoiler:Geromy getting killed off]]?
-->TG: AINT I A DICK?
* TheUnintelligible:
** In ''Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals'', Zorin occasionally spoke with her dialogue written like a troll quirk. Here, it's turned UpToEleven, where her quirk pretty much consists of as many combinations of troll/kid quirks without any conflicts as possible, forming things like... [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=145 this]]. Pikmin Fan actually had to translate what she said on the forum. Since Zorin's dialogue in that page there has been a troll character introduced who adds at least two more subsitutions to the already used ones ''and'' who'se quirk involves mispelling things. So now her dialogue gets even ''[[http://mspfanventures.com/?adv=588&id=1770 more]]'' incomprehensible.
** As of January 11th, in responce to critisism, Pikmin Fan will go back through the series and edit the dialogue so that the series as a whole will avoid this trope. He already started on the first three panels.
* UnrealisticBlackHole: The [[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext Chinese food black hole]]. For starters, it's implied that it destroyed the Chinese restaurant it formed in, yet the characters ''outrun it'' and escape to saftey. And it does ''nothing'' to its surroundings unless they actually jump into it. And it's appearantly a huge source of magic. And ''then'' Good Yoshi eats it, the magic transforming him into [[VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG Boshi]].
* UnwantedHarem: A mild example, but Dave appears to have had ''every'' kid human, troll, and Simpsonian crushing on him. Even heterosexual John and homosexual Jade. uu/Edmund and Meenah (and possibly Eridan) seem to be the only explicit exceptions. Well, that's how it was, [[spoiler:when Dave turned evil nobody outside of his lackies likes him anymore.]]
* VideoGameSettings: The 8 Mario Worlds.
** World 1: GreenHillZone.
** World 2: ShiftingSandLand.
** World 3: PalmtreePanic.
** World 4: BubblyClouds.
** World 5: UndergroundLevel. [[spoiler:DeathMountain on the surface. Oddly, you're supposed to begin in the caves]].
** World 6: TheLostWoods.
** World 7: SlippySlideyIceWorld.
** World 8: As per tradition, LethalLavaLand.
* VillainousIncest: Arguably [[spoiler:Dave and Rose, due to being related in ''Homestuck'' and seemingly taking on an antagonistic role near the end of Act 2 Act 1]].
* VisibleSilence: Again, ":O!!!!"
* TheVoiceless: Planksprite, from the offshoot universe where [[spoiler:Rip becomes extremely powerful and Dave wins the battle between him and the protagonists]]. He only spoke twice, but both times he used badly compressed JPEGS of Kurloz's canon talksprites.
* WalkingSpoiler: [[spoiler:Dave, Aranea, ''Dove'', and the Tricksters]], the latter two groups had their existance being spoilers. The counterparts ''were'' this, going by up to Intermission Act Three (they were hinted at back when John and Jade finally met with Jane and Jake; between John springing his into existance and the actual counterpart's appearance was an entire 70+ page intermission), though now they're not quite.
* WeHardlyKnewYe:
** Most of the Millennium [[spoiler:and the "minor" members of the Fox Crew. This was basically Darkhorse's whole joke until the reveal that he has some kind of extremely strong power]].
** The troll ancestors. All of them.
* WebcomicTime: Barring flashbacks, the entire set of events in this comic so far take place within four days. Day 1 (February 13th, which was actually a month ''after'' the comic had first started) went from the beginning to the dream sequences in Intermission Act 2; and tecnically at a point around Sweet TROLLS and Hella MORE TROLLS, as it did crossover to midnight. Day 2 covered the inward jorney, tower ascention, and a good chunk of events going on outside of the Mario game after it ended. Day 3 is ongoing, but it's night as of the latest update thanks to a several hour skip while the Fire/Ice duo were at stalemate with [[spoiler:Roxy]] and the rest of the Blue and Yellow Team were relaxing at Nepeta's main base. Kanaya's comments implies that it's around 11 pm, so day 3 is extremely close to concluding. Even more, unlike ''Homestuck'' the actual time is constantly listed whenever someone pesters another, which is becoming considerably more often.
* WhamEpisode: In page order:
** [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=791 This]] four-page sequence, at the time. The comic skirts around John/Jade quite often [[spoiler:and then Rose and Dave kiss]]. Aranea ''rubs this into the reader's faces'' in Act Two Intermission One.
** Jack getting the Queen's ring wasn't unexpected at all. After putting it on, he contemplates the result of getting prototyped with Bowser, the Ice King, Dave, Rose, and Edward Cullen. [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=1200 But then he puts every single thought to the side resulting in this, the comic's very first clear hint that]] [[spoiler:Dave, Rose, or both (it turns out both) are not as good as they seem]].
** "[[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=1380 And thus, Sponge8o8's first conversashin from his perspective.]]" Not the conversation itself, but the image. "It's War" ''indeed.'' Worse, Fire John is shown to ''like'' being involved with [[spoiler:his battle against Dave]].
** [[spoiler:Trickster Jade's appearance. Although since tricksters have became canon, this significantly lessens the blow of the update]].
** The zoomouts, starting in Act 2 Act 2 from when Roxy [[spoiler:unleashes the Curser Women by blowing up the magic door slealing them in their dungeon]]. Basically, [[spoiler:Dirk found a possible weakness for Dave, Damara seems to be working with Aranea on something, and clouds from World 4 -- revealed to be used as a stand-in for ''Skaia'' -- are showing John standing in a rainy area holding a shield that wasn't even ''made'' yet, Jade meeting up with all of her alter-egos seen so far including the previously unseen Blue Demon Jade, Jake during the Curser Woman fight (only himself and the roof of the restroom he's standing on is visible, as in the actual panel it happens in), and Jane ''using the chaos emeralds to enter super form''. WordOfGod says that those last four events will all happen within [=A2A2=]. A fifth cloud shows Robosanta's ghost meeting with the ghosts of Hank Hill and Integra Heck, and things such as Geromy working on God tiering Jeff and that the multiverse is part of a tree in Black Hell are shown to wrap it up.]]
* WhamLine: The ending line in the short conversation from "[[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=1279 Rose: Answer.]]" and the following page.
-->TG: nepeta has\\
TG: in a sort of way and in an accidental way\\
TG: framed us\\
TG: and kanaya bought it\\
TG: since this is kanaya were talking about that only leaves one option for me to propose\\
TG: [[spoiler:killing her]]
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** If the doodles during the Unite/Synchonize set of updates is any indication, Elitaa was supposed to be Jane's original patron troll, and Equius and Nepeta were going to share the role of John's. However, as revealed in Act 2 Intermission 1, Pikmin Fan simply ''stopped liking'' the idea of Elitaa and decided to make her unnotable, with John's patron appearantly being only Nepeta and Jane's being Equius. (Also, there was the concern of the elephant in the room that is Elitaa looking like a hybrid of John and Jade, with this hybrid developing a romantic intrest with their individual inspritation's canon ectomother.)
** Pikmin Fan stated that the war arc was to go in a completely different direction than it is now. For one, the classmates were supposed to be involved more.
** [[spoiler:Dave was originally going to undergo a heroic sacrifice -- if ''Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals'' would be any indication, it is likley that he was meant to be some sort of Alucard expy. However, the dialogue was written so that either making Dave an antagonist or having him run away are the only viable options that came to Pikmin Fan's mind at the time, so he went with the former due to finding it more interesting]].
* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: Four hundred pages in, this is finally averted when AuthorAvatar GPF's walkthrough of "Mario" shows that John, Jade, and Hank live in Texas. The Striders and Lalondes presumably live there to, and John's house is within walking distance from their residence. (As Dirk was able to walk over by the portal where John's house was pre-entry and entered the session.) And the park -- which is within walking distance of the Lalonde's house, was reached by a Dream Dave in the middle of his trip from his house to John's house.
* WholePlotReference: John and Dave's arc in Act Two Act Two to the Sasuke Retrieval Arc in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''; to the extent that [[spoiler:there is going to be a battle between the two at a historical waterfall-filled valley]].
* WhyDontYouJustShootHim: Played with. Towards the end of Act Two Intermission One, [[spoiler:Hank, captured by Janitor and Zorin, asks Aranea why doesn't she just shoot him. She replies with "Ok" and shoots him afterward.]]
* WillTheyOrWontThey '''''John and Jade'''''. Just fueled by Spongebob lampshading this whenever pestering them or their counterparts: "[=HAVE YoU FUCKED (JADE/JoHN) YET?=]" Even worse, ''twice'' it was mentioned that alternate versions of them had hooked up, and to add fuel to the fire one of them seems to be working out while the other one hooked up and broke up offscreen.
* WithFriendsLikeThese: With her constant pervertedness, [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=209 short temper]], and joking about her close friend's parent's sex lifes, it's something of a wonder why John is such a close friend to Jade. Jane and Joan partially lampshade this when [[spoiler:Jade gets hit by the miles caused by The Evil]] when they say that they barley got to know her. For that matter, Dave's notably a ''lot'' more stuck-up than he was in canon, complete with thinking that he's going to be the big hero and outright insults John and Hank Hill. (Though not directly to them.)
* TheWorfEffect:
** Bowser, getting killed offscreen ''very'' early into the story by The Evil, and with The Evil taking over as the villain. It's somewhat like the Prospit vs. Derse war in ''Homestuck''.
** [[spoiler:Darkhorse is possibly one of the strongest characters in the comic. Why? ''He'' was the one responsible for Hecksing's death, up to and including the death of Alucard]].
* WouldHitAGirl:
** At one point, when Jane and Jake are guarding the entrance to World 8-4, the command is given (to no one in particular) to punch them in their faces. John punches Jane (although he appears to punch her ''side'' rather than her face) without hesitation. But Jane punches him back, and due to being at a higher level, she takes out way more health than he does to her.
** John accidentally kicks Jane in the groin in his sleep. After her screaming from the pain wakes everybody up, John appologises to whoever he kicked... although after finding out who it was, he responds with "oh. it's you." in a less apologitic expression. He later kicks Jean in the groin, only this time it's very intentional (but caused by a misunderstanding).
** Eridan attempts to outright murder Terezi in a duel by opening fire on her... [[spoiler:before Feferi walks in and ''slaps him'']].
** There are only two women in the Millennium, and Hank seems to be hell bent on killing one of them more than any of the other members (even the leader). The other woman is sliced in half by her own weapon. Twice.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Rip seems to go by the OVA design of having dark blue hair, rather than black. It's implied that at least Jade and her ancestor have blue hair as well. Jade and Jake also have a shade of blue, taking Spongebob's shipping wall into consideration. Edith has the same dark blue, but it looks lighter in her first appearance. Although she dyes it. Edmund, much to his dismay, ''naturally'' has blue hair.
* YourHeadAsplode: Karkat's reaction to finding out that he is created from a combination of human and troll ectoslime, after constantly opposing troll/human dating. Thankfully it was just a dreamself.
* YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle: After over one thousand pages[[labelnote:Note]]If you include the Shipping Intermission.[[/labelnote]], during the ''very last page before the Mario Intermission is '''finally''' over'', Nepeta comments that the session itself is only about a third of the main story.
* ZillionDollarBill: The title screen, for some reason, features an image of the ten million dollar bill from ''Film/{{Idiocracy}}''. This has yet to appear in the adventure itself, aside from a one-shot joke late into the comic where it shows up on a poster in front of Tom Landry Middle.

[[/folder]]

to:

Tequila, boys and girls, is delicious. I could use some.

[[folder:General and Cross-Arc]]

* AbortedArc:
** It was implied around Intermission Acts Three and Four that Meenah would kick Dave down a notch somehow. [[spoiler:Meenah's essentially dead]], so this is unlikley.
** It was blatantly foreshadowed that Dave would die and Dirk would have to step into his shoes; a sort of inverse to what happened with Dave and Bro in canon [[spoiler:and fitting the events of the Shipping Intermission to an extent]]. Either this was a RedHerring or [[spoiler:Dave and Dirk, as well as the Lalondes, turning evil wasn't part of the original plan]].
** The patronage. Or more specifically, Jane and Equius's relationship. The other three groups (John and Nepeta, Jade and Kanaya, and to a lesser extent Jake and Feferi, though the latter was muddled by Terezi constantly being involved with them) had a decent ammount of interactions and arcs. Jane and Equius, on the other hand, just have a few neutral conversations with Equius occasionally hitting on Jane for some reason. Him being her patron troll is practically informed.
* TheAce: Dave and Nepeta. Jade is also inexplicably good at the Mario game.
* AerithAndBob: John, Jade, Jane, Jake, Jean, Jude, Joan, and... ''Jaka''. Also Jenn.
* AllMenArePerverts / [[AllWomenAreLustful All Women Are Perverts]]: ''Every human kid'' seems to be a pervert; they all have some form of porn collection except John and Rose (Dave doesn't either but he looks at Dirk's), and it's been very slightly implied that there is something with Rose too. John is the only one so far who had not really ''done'' anything perverted.
* AnachronicOrder: When it comes to John and Jade, the plot is surprisingly chronological for the most part. ''Anyone else'', including their alter-egos, on the other hand?
* AmbidextrousSprite: Believe it or not, this is ''averted'' more often than not: Asymetical features such as John's slimer on his shirt are flipped on his sprite. Hair, however, plays this straight, even in mouse-drawn images.
* {{Angrish}}: Very frequent. Of note, various characters shout "Magmaargh!" [[http://www.mariowiki.com/Magmaargh Which is actually the name of a Mario enemy.]]
* AnimeHair: All eight kid ancestors, except Betty Crocker. (Who's a real person in this instead of a brand logo.)
* ArcNumber: [[NumberOfTheBeast 616]] in a similar manner to 413/612/1025/111 in ''Homestuck''. Arguably, 214 fits this as well.
* ArcSymbol: Rip's iconagraphy of a hat, which resembles [[WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland Ezekiel's]] touque. Also, [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=759 Edith is appearantly wearing a hat similar to that]], and she looks like she's in an outfit that resembles Ezekiel's as well.
* ArcWords: "Rip." Usually as a WrittenSoundEffect.
* ArtEvolution: More like ''de''-evolution, but the same effect is given. At first, only copy-and-pasted art is used for most characters, but then they get SBAHJ-styled sprites that progressivly get crappier sometimes. [[http://mspfanventures.com/?adv=588&id=640 Here's]] one of the uglier images that took advantage of the new MS Paint tools.
* ArtShift.
* ArtifactTitle: Around the latter parts of Intermission Act Two, the story actually starts to resemble ''Problem Sleuth'' more than ''Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff''.
* AscendedExtra:
** Nepeta, to the point where she's orcastrating something massive and is behind quite a few of the comic's events.
** Kanaya, Equius, and Feferi within the series, who started off as rather minor characters before becoming the designated "main" trolls along with Nepeta.
** Jane and Jake, who were originally parodies of the "villainous doppleganger" architype before becoming a part of '''''the''''' main cast in Intermission Act 3.
** Aranea is arguably one of the most important of the trolls, right behind Nepeta. For starters, she gets an entire intermission centered around herself and stories told by her -- something ''none'' of the other characters so far have had. And now [[spoiler:she's the cause of most of the troll deaths]].
** Dotty Campbell was a one-shot-then-cameo extra on ''Family Guy'', but became a semi-recurring character here. For one, she's the only member of the Fox Crew who isn't dead yet.
* AuthorAppeal:
** All of the ''[[Series/TheBigBangTheory Big Bang Theory]]'' references.
** Pikmin Fan does not like Gamzee, as he said on his fan fiction.net profile. When the deaths start happening in the Shipping Intermission, no points for guessing who's one of the first characters killed off. [[spoiler:When the trolls ''finally'' start dieing for real, guess again who's one of the first to go]]. To make matters worse, his ancestor is the only one to die who was not killed by another person, but rather died in an accident.
** You can tell Pikmin Fan has a thing for nudists.
* AuthorAvatar: A green Pikmin without any features. He sometimes speaks directly to the audience in his own quirk. [[spoiler:And he is now dead]].
* AxCrazy: The thirteen Nepetas provide a whole ''range'' of sanity, taking the offhand mention of trolls closer to tyrian being more agressive and violent. Tyrian Nepeta, on the far end, will occasionally try to kill people out of fits of frustration.
* BackForTheDead:
** [[spoiler:Peter Griffin. But this was so that Peter's soul would just be on Earth along with Stan's, and have not entered the afterlife waiting room, so he can capture them and use the energy to transport the pyramid in World 2 over towards World 7]].
** Non-revival example: [[spoiler:Boomhauer, Bill, and Dale all die shortly after their third appearance]].
** Bowser and the Ice King. The latter has been getting ''more'' screentime as a ghost, however.
* BeigeProse: Especially the narrator.
* BelligerentSexualTension: Between [[Manga/{{Hellsing}} Rip Van Winkle]] and [[WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill Hank Hill]]. No, really.
* BigBad: WordOfGod says that the final villain will be [[spoiler:Rip Van Winkle]]. However, the big bad of the Mario Intermission was clearly The Evil, and the big bad of Act Two so far seems to be [[spoiler:Dave]].
* {{Bizarrchitecture}}: It's first [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=473 heavily]] [[http://mspfanventures.com/?adv=588&id=475 implied]], then [[http://mspfanventures.com/?adv=588&id=961 confirmed]], that Jade's house is built on top of John's house.
* BlondesAreEvil: Major, Luke, Schrodinger, Doctor, [[spoiler:Dave, Rose, Roxy, and Dirk]].
* BonusBoss: [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} Robosanta]] is outright described as being one of these. Plus the creature made entirley out of dollar bills, gold, and a diamond.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Countless times.
** In one point, while Jade was accidentally sent back to World 1 and attempts to catch up with John, she somehow ends up briefly running through Great Pikmin Fan's room while he's explaining the inspiration for that particular scene. GPF himself questions exactly how Jade got in there, but this isn't answered until much later.
** Rip Van Winkle blatantly asks FIRE John to speak in a more readable text color than white. Similarly, back in Intermission Act One, Jade insists that John "tolks the Pincess in pink." [sic.] Both of these where spoken conversations, not typed. The second one is called back to, but through pesterchum rather than being spoken.
** Once John and Jade finally meet up, John remarks that if the mario session was a play this would be the end of act two. Jade answers with "not yet." This is about half of the way into Intermission Act Two.
** When someone was about to exposit, Jade remarks that this isn't [[TakeThat Homestuck Act 6 Act 3]], but Sweet Jade and Hella John Intermission Act 4.
** In a ''plot point'', Aranea [[spoiler:kills Great Pikmin Fan's self insert and ''uses the recaps to get information on the comic's events''. She also attempts to hijack the narrative (again) and contact Dave, but this only resulted in Dave blowing up the computer with his sharingan powers and causing her to lose a leg and a tooth]].
* BrotherSisterIncest:
** One-sided, [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=718 Jade outright tries to make out with Jake]]. Er... [[OppositeSexClone Jaka.]] This happens several times.
--->Jaka: GAH!!!!\\
Jaka: Jade you no wer sisters rite?\\
Jade: dont care\\
John: o man if roes sees this shell freek the fuck out.
** A bit more subtle because them being siblings isn't reminded to the readers: Karkat and Dave are half-siblings. (Don't ask.) Karkat sees Dave's new "emo" look (Don't ask about this either) and thinks he's some kind of cute girl. John points out that it's a guy. Karkat in unphased due to him being bisexual. Then John says it's Dave. Karkat's responce is silence.
** [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=2050 "Jake: Blow everyone's minds."]] Jake confesses sudden love for Jade. Jade is freaked out by it.
* CallBack:
** Many, many gags to ''Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals'': Frown of worry, DO YOU REALLY WANT TO TAKE CHANGE, the liquid metal man vs. judge in a court case... one of Spongebob's fan fics has a similar summary to chapter 9 of HUC. However, this seems to have stopped after the Mario Intermission.
** During the Jane-Jake-Joan-Jaka romantic dispute, Jake in a desperate attempt to prove some sort of point yells for Dirk (who had a crush on him in the past) to kiss him. Dirk's reaction there, and for a good chunk of the remaining intermission until Jade snaps him out of it, is ":O!!!!" [[StunnedSilence And nothing else]]. Much later on, [[spoiler:and coincidentally ''right'' after Dirk's (and Roxy's) death]], Jake cries out for ''Jade'' to kiss him, and Jade reacts in ''the exact same way as Dirk did''. Well, except for the fact that she managed to snap out of it on her own near-instantly.
* CanadaEh: uranianUmbra (AKA Edith Quimby) [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=587 types]], and talks, in a very heavy Canadian accent, complete with adding a "U" after ''every'' "O" unless it's the first of a double.
* CanonDiscontinuity: The ''Trol Seasson'' crossover is ''never'' mentioned again (barring the recap and a ''[[http://mspfanventures.com/?adv=588&id=796 very]]'' brief mention by Dave that actually took place in the past) once both characters leave the story; which is odd, considering how Karkat's duel match against Anger was supposed to be a huge move in Troll History and how continuity-filled the webcomic is. The flashbacks we've seen in relation to the trolls do not mention the trol race at all.
* CaptainObvious: The narrator, sometimes.
* CastingGag:
** Unintentional at first, but [[StuckInTheirShadow Jade as Luigi]] and [[EnsembleDarkhorse Jake as Waluigi]]. And John and Jade as the Mario ''brothers''.[[labelnote:Note]]But they're not related in SJAHJ, or at least definitley not siblings. (As the ancestor arc revealed.)[[/labelnote]]
** [[WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy Nazz]] as the princess that everyone wants a kiss from.
* CensorBox: On everything naked.
* CerebusSyndrome: For a while during Intermission Act Two and Intermission Act Three.
** ReverseCerebusSyndrome: However, now the story seems to be reverting back to it's old, silly ways with little care towards characterization (what with Rose randomly speaking in Austrailian dialect), but the plot's still complicated. And dark.
* ChekhovsGun:
** [[spoiler:The yellow ship John and Jade ride on. It is later used as Stan's battle field during the first Fox Crew arc, and then sent to Troll Town by the Captain and ridden by the trolls from Troll Town to World 8. Its current wereabouts are unknown. It also reappears in Intermission Intermission, wherein there's a nuke Jade threatens to kill everybody with, and by an accident everyone dies. Whether or not there's actually a nuke on the real ship is unknown]].
** Early into [=IA2=], [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=60 Jade captchaloges a random vacuum cleaner.]] '''''Four hundred and seventy''''' [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=530 pages later...]][[labelnote:note]]The reason why Jude has one as well is because everything a person has in their sylladex is duplicated onto the sylladex of their Inward Journey counterpart.[[/labelnote]]
** [[spoiler:John fainting at the thought of Rose becomes important as Roxy uses this within a dream to get a look at his medical records]].
* ChekhovsGunman: The entire cast except for John and Jade.[[labelnote:*]]Well, maybe not the ''entire'' cast, but the only exceptions are ''extremely'' minor characters. Death Mecha, for one, had a pretty straightforeward role in the story. (Albeit one with a perspective switch between his first two appearnaces.) And that demon guard in Red Hell doesn't seem to have potential for a re-appearance anytime soon.[[/labelnote]] But Pikmin Fan admitted that this isn't from being planned ''as much'' as legitimatly not finding a good spot to bring closure to a character's arc until much later. But even with that, there are some notable examples:
** In Intermission Act One, Hank Hill seems to be a one shot side character used for the sake of a joke. Then he kills Vriska's doctor, and is revealed to be the leader of the {{Fox}} Crew with said doctor actually being a part of a rival group of Felt expies, the Millennium. The Millennium also contains the comic's BigBad. [[spoiler:And no, it isn't the Lord English stand-in]].
** John's inner female self, and inner selves in general for that matter.
* ColorCodedCharacters:
** Dream selves taken outside of dreams normally have a pale tinge to them. And if [[Webcomic/ProblemSleuth Temporal Replicsimile]] is used, the same color-coding key from PS applies: Green is the copy that goes in the past, red is the copy that goes in the future.
** The Hydra's heads.
** This is the reason why Link-Dirk is in a blue tunic instead of the trademark green: To prevent the color color from being too similar to either Good Yoshi's or Luigi-Jade's.

GA: And Your Unhealthy Obsession With Marge Simpson
* BigBallOfViolence: [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=1996 This]] panel, due to the animator's lazy-ness.
* BlackComedy: Showed up occasionally at first, then pretty much dominated the plot of Act Two Act Two. [[spoiler:One of John's longest best friends Dave has undergone a complete mental breakdown, and Rose, Roxy, ''and'' Dirk seem to be slipping with him. Dave is essentially commiting acts of terrorism by unleashing an army on a school, at least one member of which gets mauled to death by a dog from before. The only group of possible heroes, as everybody else is either dead, mind controlled, or evil from the start, is constantly mocked by one of their own members that repeatedly sexually harasses her own sister to the point of implied insanity. An alternate John has been brainwashed into Trickster Mode, and later on an alternate Jade suffered the same fate, neither of which have any signs of their warped thinking ending soon]]. All of this is PlayedForLaughs.
* BlackAndGrayMorality: Of all the ''Homestuck'' fancomics, this one uses this trope to an extent as of around Act Two Act Two (and, to a lesser extent, Act Two Intermission One.) And Act 2 Intermission 1 revealls that [[spoiler:Spongebob thinks that ''everyone'' except the titular characters and their "Evil Twins" are evil]].

[[folder:Unsorted]]

* {{Cosplay}}:
** Edith Quimby cosplays as who Rip "wants to cosplay as," which in turn resembles [[WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland Ezekiel's]] outfit but half blue and half yellow instead of green and teal. Edmund's outfit losley resembles Alucard's.
** Dave starts doing this a lot in Act Two. From AndrewHussie's sepulchritude outfit, to [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Sasuke's]] pre-time skip outfit + [[WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball Carrie's]] hairstyle, to Lord E-Bro's outfit in an alternate universe.
* CrackFic: It may be simpler, but it's arguably more confusing than ''Homestuck'' itself, due to the typoed (but still comprehensible) speech of most of the main characters, extremely frequent perspective switches and AnachronicOrder, and less concrete rules on reality in the universe. The fact that there are things you should be ''paying attention to'' makes it even worse, and the narrator frequently taunts you by asking if you remembered a certain character.
* CrackPairing: Invoked. There are several ''bizzare'' ships in this, such as Karkat/Equius and Terezi/Feferi. And then there's teased Jade/Kanaya, Jake/Terezi, Jake/Feferi, and Dave/Roxy (Roxy is ''[[ParentalIncest his biological mother]]'' in canon, but not in SJAHJ) The ones that do not involve the kids are weirder, such as [[WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow Cleveland Brown]]/[[Manga/{{Hellsing}} Tubalcain Alhambra]]. ([[spoiler:But they break up over ''Series/DoctorWho''.]])
* {{Crossover}}: As a fan fic, even moreso than ''Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals''. Although most of it is part of the Mario game.
** In a memo, sporesInfection from ''Onionstuck'' makes a brief appearance before Pikmin Fan himself comes in and bans him.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: The Captain. He acts like a complete idiot until one of the people who ranks below him starts attempting to murder several trolls.
* CurbStompBattle: The [[spoiler:first]] battle against The Evil just consists of a two-panel gif of John and Jade attacking him. [[spoiler:He escapes with low health, and fuses with a shipperworm and the Chinese Food Black Hole. But that form is killed off by Good Yoshi, transforming him into Boshi, making it another curb-stomp.]]
* CutAndPasteComic: It had been using sprites taken directly from ''Homestuck'', but use of them has been slowly tonning down. Of note, Karkat's one pose during an argument between him, Elitaa, Terezi, Feferi, and Eridan is repeatedly copy-pasted into other panels where he's really angry. [[spoiler:As a joke, this is also the image representing him when he dies.]] This trope is '''''especially''''' used in the parts involving the Fox Crew/Millennium. It was even worse during the part before the author actually drew sprites for them, since images were straight up ripped from Google, ''Webcomic/SherlokHolms'' style.
* DarkSkinnedBlonde: Rose and Roxy are revealed to be this towards the end of their portion at the beginning of Intermission Act 4.
* ADayInTheLimelight: "Sweet TROLLS and Hella MORE TROLLS." And "Sweet Rose and Hella Dave." Well, the latter only applied to before Act Two, where Dave, Rose, Roxy, and Dirk take up much more major roles in the story. There's also "Sweet Jake and Hella Jane," and the Trifold Battles and Act Two Act Two Intermissions.
* DeconstructiveParody: Intermission Act 3 (and John's encounter of his inner female self a little bit before) is for the most part this in regards to [[ScrewYourself selfcest]].
* DemotedToExtra:
** Pretty much every troll except Nepeta. WordOfGod stated that he even hates writting for them because he can't come up with anything for them that isn't walls of hemospectrum=racist, romance discussions, and plot exposition. Notably, Vriska, opposite of Nepeta, turns from one of the most important characters in ''Homestuck'' who deliberatly tries to force herself into the plot into an [[MyNameIsEarl Earl]] expy early on in the comic. [[RuleOfFunny This was intentional.]] Lamshaded in the Shipping Intermission when Tavros asks Vriska what the last big plan she had was. She answers with a long pause, followed by a "fuck you."
** Rose, Roxy, Dave, and arguably Dirk. (The "arguably" meaning that he actually joins John's group for most of Intermission Act Two, but [[LivingProp he doesn't do anything]] until after he separated himself from the group to look for rupees.) It's also heavily implied that the lines on the "==>" arrows stand for John, Jade, Jane, and Jake, and not any of the blondes. The reason for this being that dashes and equals are added once a gender flipped counterpart is made, including counterparts to Jane and Jake. Thankfully, this only seems to apply for the first three Intermission Acts; from [=IA4=] onwards, they get a lot more focus.
** Within the fan fic, Elitaa and possibly Puerco. Elitaa was at first ''quite'' the spotlight taker and her introduction and surrounding initial mysteries heavily took up most of ''Sweet TROLLS and Hella MORE TROLLS''. There was even a segment where she wandered around the yellow ship and looked at what all of the trolls there were doing; unfortunatly, nobody suggested, so that didn't go anywhere. She's now a LivingProp who hasn't made a physical, non-cameo appearance in over several hundred pages, and never really contributed to the plot. (Everything she did was tied directly with another character, such as destroying the T-800s with Eridan.) The "possibly" for Puerco is only because she was almost never important at all and is one of the few characters who didn't actually contribute anything to the story.
* '''DesignatedProtagonistSyndrome''': Invoked and very often lampshaded with the Blue and Yellow Team. John and Jade have done very little in the beginning that actually affected the main Fox Crew/Millennium rivalry; most of the Millennium members have been killed off by a third party, and the main characters never actually fought a member of the Fox Crew. Jane and Jake slip into this during Intermission Act Three, where this trope is in full force: Like most of the series up to this point (though from the alchemy arc onwards they finally start breaking free from this), John, Jade, Jane, and Jake have only been blindly following other people's commands, in this case the inward journey, while other, more interesting events are occuring like wars. In fact, in Act Two Act Two Roxy flat-out ''taunts'' the B&YT for being useless to what is going on.
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu Jade and Jude vs. Lord Major Quimby. They shoot him a little, causing him to back off and time/space travel out of there. Outside of context, this doesn't sound impressive... except that this is the ectobiological son of ''[[Manga/{{Hellsing}} Alucard]]'' we're talking about here.
* DistressedDamsel: The Pincess [sic].
* DiscOneFinalBoss: [[spoiler:Lord Major Quimby. In spite of filling in the "place" of Lord English, he's not the BigBad or even a remotley big villain from the perspective of the heroes. To add insult to injury, his death is extemely anticlimatic and ''one of the weakest members of the Millennium manage to kill the two that killed him'']].
* DivergentCharacterEvolution: John and Jade. In the beginning, the only real personalities given to them was that Jade was the more savvy expositor while John just listened, and he seemed to be a little bit dumber. The only hint of Jade's pervertedness was her owning a softcore porn magazine. Intermission Act 2 did not actually focus on her as much as John, or the other non-troll characters for that matter, and John stayed static throughout most of the act. It wasn't until Intermission Act Three where's Jade's "gangsta" personality really kicked in; and in fact that subact really focused on the main heroes of the adventure and was the first time Jane and Jake got some actual characterization beyond being John's rivals.
* DivideByZero: In a scene based off of the episode-naming situation in "[[Series/TheBigBangTheory the Dumpling Paradox]]," Roxy leaves the group of 32[[labelnote:Context]]No, this isn't the combined group of the 24 trolls and 8 kids. While fantroll Elitaa is included here, the missing slots of Sollux, Nepeta, Dave, and the A1 trolls is filled with nine Nepeta bloodswaps and five copies of some of the human kids.[[/labelnote]] in the Chinese restaraunt, meaning that there are no longer groups of four that they can evenly divide the food on. The result? All of the un-eaten Chinese food globs together and turns into a black hole that consumes the entire restaraunt.
* DoorStopper: It officially out-updated ''Homestuck'' in terms of pages per the first year early in January. It's now longer than the first three MS Paint Adventures AND ''Homestuck'' Beta combined, and is approaching the length of all of Act 5 of ''Homestuck''. It's being implied that the adventure is close to ending, but still. There is an option to skip the first thousand+ pages. Act Two Act Two alone is implied from author's notes to be the comic's longest subact, at over six hundred pages, passing through ''two'' seperate 500 panel filler celebration comics.
* TheDragon: Three examples: Omega Drew Pickles to Lord Major Quimby, Captain to Rip, and [[spoiler:Rose to Dave]].
* EarlyBirdCameo: SJAHJ is essentially one long ad for Great Pikmin Fan's future fan fics.
** One of the movies available for viewing at World 7 was "Onionstuck," however the option was struck out because it wasn't out yet. Not too long after, the actual fan adventure ''Onionstuck'' was out on the forums.
** [[spoiler:A future duoiligy of John/Jade and Dave/Rose fan fics has been hinted at in this, both times through Spongebob; ''Temples'', the John/Jade fan fic, had its premise hinted at during the part where Spongebob sends John a fan fic called "Eerie Temple," with the plot about John and Jade "exploring buildings." ''Attack of the Killer Time Beetles!'' the Dave/Rose fan fic, had been hinted at in the synopsis for the Spongebobfic with a title mentioning them]].
** Jade links to a ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' video after [[spoiler:saying that her love confession to Kanaya was just a prank]], to tell everyone that they just got trolled. This happened around a week after Pikmin Fan confirmed the next SBIG fan fic will be one of said show. Later on, the narrator admitted to having a crush on Nicole, from the same show. More amusingly, the character featured in that video in question is who Dave sorta-ends up dressing like (likley a coincidence in-universe).
** In the BadFuture, Dave's Lord E-Bro shirt reads "496" instead of Eddy's brother's "62." ''496 Reasons Why Multidating is More Complicated than it Seems'' would be made by the author.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The beginning of the story is quite different compared to what it has became. The first intermission act and the first chunk of the second focus a lot more on randomness for humor, with very little of the actions actually coming up again. Around the very first character select to Sweet TROLLS and Hella MORE TROLLS, the plot becomes a lot more structured and the adventure, as hard as it may be to belive, takes itself a little more seriously [[ChekhovsGun and events and characters from before starts becoming relevant]]. However, around the boss fight of Intermission Act Three, the adventure reverts back towards comedy and keeps up the hijinks, albeit keeping the plot organized. Even the formatting is different now: With the command arrows since becoming longer during Intermission Acts 3 and 4 and Act 2 Act 2 as alter-egos to John/Jade/Jane/Jake are added (though this has since reverted) and the Mario Intermission actually ''ending'' at one point -- eliminating the "[I]" tags that are on over 900 pages, plus Jade's cheat code that makes it so that commands don't refer to characters by initials anymore, it could be easy for one who hasn't gotten up to [=IA3=] yet to look at the "latest commands" on the mirror and think that pages of another adventure were accidentally uploaded instead of this.
* EasilyForgiven: Edmund's first conversation is him chewing out Elitaa for trying to "replace" him and Edith.[[labelnote:For reffrence]]This was before the reveal that the uracil characters were not trolls, but cherubs in canon. GPF decided to make them Simpsonians in SJAHJ; creatures that resemble ''Simpsons'' characters.[[/labelnote]] Elitaa says she's trying to replace Karkat instead. Edmund answers with "o ok then" and immediatley leaves.
* EasterEgg: In [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=809 one page]], Karkat shouts what seems like gibberish on the first line. [[spoiler:If you run it through [=ROT13=], it becomes a message that reveals the third elimination of one of the author's competition fan fics, ''[[FanFic/TotalZeksmitSeries Total Zeksmit Plains]]''. Before the chapter with that particular elimination was published.[[labelnote:Note]]The exact message, when translated, is "BRIDGETTEWILLBEVOTEDOFFTHIRDINTFSP," or "Bridgette will the voted off third in TFSP." TFSP standing for "Total ''Fan Service'' Plains, the old title of the fan fic.[[/labelnote]]]]
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Darkhorse is a parody/in-universe example. He's the only member of the Millennium Hank Hill actually likes. [[spoiler:And, of course, he gets killed off three pages after his first appearance]].
* EpicFail: Karkat promises to direct Jade to a pipe leading to World 8-4 is she can help him get a rare card for a duel match. But it turns out, he sent her to the wrong pipe. A pipe which ''leads to the beginning of the game''. Jade... [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=209 isn't happy about that.]]
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Rip's first full appearance is her after she [[spoiler:blows up the Death Mecha]], which also may foreshadow [[spoiler:her increasing tendency to kill members of the Millennium, whom she ''used'' to work for]].
* [[EvenTheGuysWantHim Even the "Not Homosexual" Guys and Lesbians Want Him]]: Dave.
* EveryoneIsRelated: Sort of. Dave's father and Jade's mother were a wedded couple, before they each had their respective twin sets with their eventual partners. John's biological father is named Harl '''Makara''', which Gamzee points out several pages later that this was because Gamzee's ancestor somehow adopted him, and thanks to some obscure Alternian legal loophole Gamzee can act as a guardian figure to John.
* EvilTwin: All of the human and troll kids who were post-scratch players in canon are seen as this, whereas their pre-scratch counterparts are the "good twins." A conversation between Dave and Aranea reveals that what denotes as being "good" or "evil" depends on what type of magic they are naturally good with. Also, Yoshi has one, which actually stemmed out from a suggestion that was supposed to compromise with there only being one Yoshi but two kids to ride him.
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: ''Boobs'' magazines and their SpearCounterpart ''Penis''.
* ExcusePlot: The entire series of events is set off just because John, one day, randomly declares "fuck, let's be... MARIO AND LUIGI."
* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler:Dirk may provide the dumbest example in all of media. He joins the villains' (well, one group of villains, that is) side just because Roxy offered him cookies]].
* FailOSuckyName: The nicknames for the ancestors. Especially Sleepy Dogwoman and [=Reddy McCoolshades=].
* FanFic: [[spoiler:The Shipping Intermission is revealed to be a fan fiction... by SpongebobSquarepants. Who is wearing shades. Which arguably raises more questions]].
* {{Fanon}}: Invoked. [[spoiler:Trickster Jade's design is based on a pixel by Feastings. The same pixel was used in-comic for the panel marking her first clear appearance.]] Other than that, however, ''Sweet Jade and Hella John'' may be the ultimate anti-fandom-meme comic, flat out defying or even criticising at points jokes that are commonly shared within the fandom and ''annihilating'' popular couples.
* FantasticRacism: Apart from the whole hemospectrum thing (which GPF admits that he actually hates writting), Karkat is against troll/human dating to the extent that [[spoiler:he completely breaks up with Nepeta over it and ends their friendship, or at least what could be considered friendship.]] And then there's Jade's conversation with UU/Edith:
-->GG: wait wait wait can this be avoided????\\
GG: i dont wanna live with a bunch of simpsons charcters if theyre gonna be dull and personalityless and theyre not marge!!!!!\\
GG: o yeah and i dont want all humans ded too\\
UU: ...\\
UU: that almoUst soUnds rasist.
: :[[spoiler:Darkhorse hates trolls. All trolls in general. John thinks it's racist]].
* FiveBadBand: [[spoiler:The Red and Red Team]].
** BigBad: [[spoiler:Dave]].
** TheDragon: [[spoiler:Rose]].
** TheBrute: [[spoiler:Roxy]], by far one of the deadliest and most active and mobile members, currently in possesion of all seven Millennium jujus.
** TheEvilGenius: [[spoiler:Auto Responder]].
** TheDarkChick: [[spoiler:Dirk]].
* FiveManBand: At first, it was just John, Jade, and later Good Yoshi. Intermission Act 2 changed their team around often (dropping Good Yoshi for Jade and FIRE John, for one). However, as of Act Two Act Two, they seem to have finally settled onto this:
** TheHero: John.
** TheLancer: Jade.
** TheBigGuy: Fire John, Jane with her Crocker Blade.
** TheSmartGuy: Possibly the counterparts (yes, all four of them), especially due to them getting more information pestered to them than their originals.
** TheLoad: Jake.
** TheSixthRanger: Dirk (throughout the adventure; ever since [=IA2=]; [[spoiler:then Roxy convinced him to turn evil]]), Rose, Dave, Roxy ([[spoiler:before all three of them became evil]]), and the trolls.
* FiveTokenBand: Ethnicities have been hinted at here and there, or outright revealed in the very rare "in color" pages, but Spongebob's Shipping Grid provides a handy image: [[http://i.imgur.com/ZGCN1.png The Striders are blondes with the same pinkish skin color used for Hank Hill (and most Millennium members), the Lalondes are black blondes, the Egberts are Latino, and the Harleys have the same skin tone as the Striders, but with the same hair color as Rip.]]
* ForegoneConclusion: Happens a lot.
** In Intermission Act Four, when one of Dave's dreamselves finally meets up with Rose and Roxy, Roxy teases that she will try to steal one of the four quest gatorade containers and force Dave to drink it, making a female version of himself that Roxy presumes Jade will fall in love with. Given that Intermission Act Three was ''all'' about John, Jade, Jane, and Jake on thier inward journey and each of them drank their gatorade, "Dame Strider" never came to be. The funny thing is, given Dave's ability to charm anyone regardless of sexuality, that wasn't even really necessary.
** When Darkhorse is ''finally'' elaborated on, pretty much everything else about him had been revealed through snippets, including his death. This means that his creation was the absolute ''last'' thing we find out about him. Shorlt after such, the narrator recaps his entire story.
* {{Flanderization}}: Jade, Karkat, and Roxy got hit with this pretty badly. The former got more perverted as the series went on (she was originally surprised at a misunderstanding comment; now she outright tries to make out with her "[[OppositeSexClone sister]][[BrotherSisterIncest brother]]" and jokes about her parents sex life), and the latter two got more and more focused on ships. Although Roxy's had been RetCon[=ned=] with the reveal that [[spoiler:she had been infected with a "shipper worm" that Cerulean Nepeta knocks out of her shortly after... and now it's been changed right back again and Roxy is still a sociopath.]]
* {{Foreshadowing}}:
** [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=410 In the Shipping Intermission,]] [[spoiler:Vriska asks Jade if she's going to nuke everybody. Her responce? "not yet." Granted, she doesn't do the nuking, but still.]] The Shipping Intermission in general is basically just one big foreshadowing of events in future subacts, and was what retroactivley determined Jade, Jane, and Jake's supposed patron trolls. ([[spoiler:Kanaya, Equius (originally Elitaa while Equius replaces Nepeta for John's), and Feferi respectivley.]])
** Dirk saying that the conflict between John and Dave is like that between [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Naruto and Saskue]], but with the hair colors flipped.
* FourLinesAllWaiting: Several instances in Intermission Act 2. It's gotten to the extent that Good Yoshi, previously a semi-regular, had vanished for over a hundred pages before John and Jean ''finally'' hear of him again. Intermission Act 3 attempts to avoid the "all waiting" part by having a heavy focus on the kids playing as Mario brothers, but at a cost most of the other plots run even slower.
* FreakOut: Dave's reaction to [[spoiler:seeing his dead dad's corpse and Rose and Roxy's mother's corpse in Rip's coffin]]. Notably the first time he really freaked out like this in the fan fic.
* FromBadToWorse: The entire adventure itself. While it's never meant to be taken seriously (especially given the sheer ammount of self-deprecation humor and lampshade hanging), the beginning was completely lighthearted. The second half of the Mario Intermission onwards features things such as [[spoiler:Rip showing Dave a pair of corpses (but it's NightmareRetardant due to the art style), ''one of them being his own dad's corpse''; main characters dying and being teased ''for a long time'' to be completely unambiguously dead; and more and more characters turning out to be a part of an evil plan]]. And now there's things such as Aranea bragging about the comic's death count. [[spoiler:And being ''responsible'' for a good chunk of the death count, especially in regards to the trolls.]]
** The Shipping Intermission. It starts out... [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=383 bizzare]], but harmless. Then Dave gets into a fight with Dirk's Auto Responder. [[spoiler:And then the deaths start happening. More (of the evil twin/post-scratch) trolls are permenantly killed off than in ''Homestuck'' canon so far, and two of the humans die as well. And that's ''before'' the nuke hits and kills everyone else off, including the previously unseen good twin trolls.]]
* FullFrontalAssault: One of the films in the Ice World's dating theater is about a man robbing a bank naked. And ''another'' is about a nude woman ghost/monster thing who is supposedly invincible. They later get brought to life and play this trope in a greater effect, along with Homer Simpson who decides to go naked because he noticed everyone else in the little group at the time was naked.
* GagBoobs: Jane and Jean are both implied to have "freakishly large boobs," although this isn't visible from the typical sprite style of the characters. Anything implying breasts rarley show up in "hero mode" poses, and even then it doesn't look that freakish. Appearanty "freakishly large" is shown by (or just means) the character having them period, since no other character aside from Dottie and the Curser Woman (who are both supposed to be naked) is drawn with breasts. The Trip Intermission [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=1057 shows]] that Jean's breasts are ''sagging''. (Link SFW.) ''At the age of '''12'''''.
* GambitPileup: Oh, yes. WordOfGod has said that this comic can be described as a three-person chess game between Dave, Nepeta, and Rip. A '''''COMPLICATED''''' three-person chess game, as demonstraited by him linking to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nsaAkNXAzak this]] video.
* TheGamePlaysYou: The Mario session averts this when it comes to the main people playing it, but for the trolls in Troll Town, their houses are pretty much forced to be warped into the game world. Granted, it's easy to take a pipe into 1-1 and leave, but still. Eridan actually gets fed up with it to the point that he sends Dave a large (literally) "fuck you."
* GenderBlenderName: "Joan." Worse, it's actually a [[{{Fanon}} commonly-used name for a genderbent]] ''John'', not Jane. [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=556 The angroginy is pointed out in the narration:]]
-->(Wait isn't joan a girls name?)
* TheGhost: [[RealLifeWritesTheplot Due to not being seen in the comic outside of sillouette at the time of writting several pages of the story]], the "good twin" trolls aside from Aranea and Meenah have not been seen for some time. They haven't even been involved in pesterlogs due to their quirks not being revealed back then, until they became necessary to the plot, wherein Damara's has been guessed. (The irony is that Pikmin Fan's guess of her personality was not too far from how it actually turned out.) Elitaa's hasn't either, but she has no real excuse due to being an original character.
* GISSyndrome: Like its inspiration.
* {{God}}: It turns out that the Gods of this multiverse are [[spoiler:Ed, Edd, and Eddy]].
* GoodBadBugs: In-universe. The Mario game has a few, which are exploited by the characters. Such as the backwards long jump being possible again. It's implied that these are only in the beta.
* GratuitousSpanish: Occasionally, both said by the characters and written in the captions/panels.
* GroinAttack: [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=368 Actually happens to a girl first.]] [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=487 And then another girl.]] [[http://mspfanventures.com/?adv=588&id=595 And then another.]] Finally used on a guy with [[http://mspfanventures.com/?adv=588&id=1224 Jack]]:
-->"Ow! Right between the dick!" [sic]
* HalfTheManHeUsedToBe: How [[spoiler:Vriska, Tavros, and Karkat die in the Shipping Intermission]]. Also Cleveland slices Zorin in half with her own scythe. Jaka slices Zorin in half ''again'' after she is brought back to life by Jan, except this time it's horizontally instead of vertically. [[spoiler:Karkat's "main" instance is ripped in half post-death by Vampire Jade]].
* HandOrObjectUnderwear: At one point, Homer Simpson (who is giant and naked) covers his crotch with Jade and Jake's bedroom. Unfortunatley, the window is right over his crotch, giving everyone in the room [[CensorBox but the viewers]] a full view.
* HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday: "i am not a homosexual" is appearantly John's ''catchphrase'' in the fan comic, although within the comic itself he hardly uses it.
* HiveMind: Outside of biology, assigned color, and having knowledge of the inward journey area layout, there are no initial differences between the kids and their gender reversed counterparts, leading to moments such as them typing the same thing on a memo. No, a kid never actually had a pesterchum conversation with their own counterpart (though Jean did contact John to send him the files Spongebob sent her). This amusingly did not happen between the two Johns created after the Robosanta battle, but that's presumably because one of them got the fire flower before meeting the other.
* IHatePastMe:
** Future John outright attempts to troll his past self and his copies, but then Jade from the same point in time bans him from the memo they were in and slaps him.
** [[spoiler:Dave's dreamselves made before his freakout ''really'' don't take a liking to his current self]].
* AnIcePerson: Both the [[VideoGame/PaperMario Crystal King]] and the [[WesternAnimation/AdventureTime Ice King]] appear. [[spoiler:The former kills the latter, however]]. Then there's ICE Jade, and [[spoiler:Johnsprite was becoming this due to being prototyped with the Ice King's crown but fixed it by Tricksterizing]].
* InSeriesNickname: When the Blue and Yellow team forms, Jade gives out nicknames to the twelve people present at the time. She then expands on this to everybody else:
** John: The Courage.
** Jade: The Badass Lesbian.
** Jane: The Girl Who Does Nothing but Baking.
** Jake: The Fan Service.
** Jean: The Wisdom.
** Jude: The Badass Crossdresser. (Joan, for some reason, does not get a title similar to this, but instead...)
** Joan: The Male [=PMSer=].
** Jaka: The Fan Service but with a Vagina Instead of a Penis.
** Fire John: The Fire Guy.
** Ice Jade: The Ice Girl.
** Vampire Jade: The Bloodsucker.
** Zombie Jade: The Milksucker.
** [[spoiler:Trickster John]]: The Moron
** [[spoiler:Trickster Jade]]: the Suga Fuga
** Blue Demon Jade: The Object of Jake's Desires
** Jenn: The Mentalist
* HulkingOut: John and Jean after [[spoiler:reading Geromy's death]].

* IJustWantToBeNormal: Averted to hell and back with FIRE John. Having fire powers was pretty much the best thing to happen to him. Same with ICE Jade. And debatebly with Vampire Jade, Vampire Dave, or Vampire Rose.
* InterspeciesRomance: Played straight with John/Nepeta ([[spoiler:until they break up]]), Dirk/Sollux, and discussed several times. Karkat thinks troll/human is like bestiality and compares it to the relationship between [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006 Sonic and Ellise]]. Jude also jokeingly compares it to bestiality.
* {{Irony}}:
** In ''Homestuck'', 413 was the ArcNumber for the kids, while 612 was the Arc Number for the trolls. The update on the day 4/13 actually focused exclusivly on the trolls, whereas the 6/12 update (which was short because the author was away for most of the day) focused exclusivly on the kids. [[InvokedTrope GPF takes note of this and spends the next update -- which is supposed to be the "real" 6/12 update --]] making eight panels instead of the average-at-the-time four, '''''none''''' of them so much as ''mentioning'' any of the trolls.
** Karkat, who constantly opposes troll/human dating, turns out to be part-human through ectobiology. ''His head literally '''explodes''''' when he finds this out, though thankfully it was in a dream so his realself didn't get any harm from it.
* ItMakesSenseInContext: The entire comic, as surprising as it may seem. However in most cases "context" doesn't come in for a ''long'' time.
** "ok so i think the theory that the female jake created after drinking magical gatorade in the session of the immersive mario game will go back in time and become hank hill, who is aganst her sister but especally aa sexy vampire vversion of her that was created from a game constroct ffrom a ex-frend's comic conjured by a clone of my girlfriend in a moodflippout was jossed a fe pages after it was proposed."
* JawDrop: Roxy and Dirk after Jaka and Joan (respectivly) suddenly swoop them to them, kiss them, [[WrittenSoundEffect DOOF]] them to the ground, and have a four-way makeout session with their original versions.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Jade. It's ''very'' much hidden, but it's there. Notable example include an alternate universe version of her attempting to prototype Jane's dead boyfriend over her own, her "Main" universe self defending John from... [[IHatePastMe himself]], and trying to revive him when he gets killed by Robosanta.
* JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind: Dream related mechanics show up late into Intermission Act Two. For instance, Cerulean and Yellow Nepeta have the power to enter people's dreams. They even both give [[spoiler:Fire]] John an Film/{{Inception}} by giving him instructions to a back entrance in World 8-4 in a way that he will remember them. Take notes, because it only gets more confusing from there. An ''entire arc'' takes place within dreams, and not even within the same person's dreams at that.
* JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope: [[spoiler:Dave and Rose]].
* [[spoiler:KillEmAll: The Shipping Intermission ends with everyone getting nuked after a miscalculation. The events prior to the nuking weren't going too well either: Vriska, Tavros, Gamzee, Karkat, Terezi, Dave, Aradia, Rose, Sollux, and Eridan were all killed before the sea gets nuked.]]
* KarmaHoudini: Jade. She belittles, insults, and threats a majority of characters, [[BrutalHonesty and seems 100% sincere in everything]], yet barely gets any sort of commupance. Her actions have caused [[spoiler:Dave to completely break mentally, which leads to many of the bad things that have happened over the course of the series]]. Characters do notice how terrible she is, but this usually results in them trying to kill her, [[spoiler:only to die instead. Jaka lampshades this]].
* TheyKilledKennyAgain: Jade has died '''[[spoiler:FOUR]] TIMES''' over the course of the story, and always came back. All of which are due to her 7up.
* KilledOffForReal: Most of the characters who died post-Mario Intermission. Specifically: [[spoiler:So far the entire Fox Crew bar Dottie, the entire Millennium bar Rip and Captain, every troll that isn't a Leijon or Aranea, Roxy, Dirk, both Simpsonians, every major carapace, and the entire Revenge Five (who amusingly didn't start dying off until Intermission Intermission 2, right after the "main" Mario Intermission)]].
* KudzuPlot: It's one of those stories where a ''broken window'' leads to [[spoiler:an evil baby doll head being created by the window's owner convincing a stoner clown troll into using his powers into making it, followed by the head starting a small army, one of the army members of which will then be used to ectobiologically create one of the main enemies of the window owner.]]
* LampshadeHanging: In case the title wasn't a big enough clue, this is ''not'' a fan fic that takes itself seriously.
* LaserGuidedKarma: In a way. Ever since late into Intermission Act 3, Jade has been periodically hitting on Jaka, who is pretty much her sister. Jaka naturally reacts negatively to this and is understandably creeped out. (The fact that it's ''[[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Jade]]'' makes it worse.) After the Trifold Battles arcs, Jake, her brother in this universe, randomly confesses love for her. Jade is absolutley stunned and can only answer with nervous silence.
-->Jade (thinking): oh god its not as fun when YOURE the sibling being hit on.....
* LateArrivalSpoiler: Several spoilers for ''Homestuck'' are given away without much warning, so it's strongly advized to read through just about '''''all''''' of ''Homestuck'' before getting into ''Sweet Jade and Hella John''. For instance, the very first command given in SJAHJ is basically what John and Jade were doing by the end of Act ''Five''.
** Not exactly ''Homestuck'' related: ''Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals''[='=]s first AN warns that it will give away a [[TheButlerDidIt certain spoiler]] in chapter 4. ([[spoiler:Namely, Walter is a traitor.]]) SJAHJ, however, reveals this exact same certain spoiler casually once the Fox Crew's hit list was seen. While [[spoiler:Walter]] is drawn in such a manner that [[spoiler:he could resemble Rip, who wasn't on the list at first]], the description pretty much reveals it further.
** Segments involving Dave during Intermission Act 4 have been revealing or implying certain events of the ''Total Drama'' series. The narration cuts itself off before revealing one [[YourCheatingHeart particularly]] [[EliminationHoudini controversial]] [[ShipSinking twist]] in the third season, ([[spoiler:Duncan returning and kissing Gwen]]) but then the command to a later page pretty much reveals this:
-->[I] DS: Pull a Duncan from ''Total Drama'' and [[spoiler:unexpectedly come out of nowhere to hog up the spotlight yet again. Also, pull a Duncan in that you ignite a really shitty, overdone love n-drangle debate shortly after your appearance.]]
:: : And ''then'' there's the whole "heather to my alejandro" comparason, whatever that would mean.
** The premise to Spongebob's final fan fic, when the title is taken into consideration, spoils one of the plot points of ''Housestuck Hurrcain Crconikals''. Another one seems to spoil the ending of said fic.
* Laws of Gender Bending: It's not ''traditional'' gender bending so much as it is OppositeSexClone creation, but from the counterparts' point of view it is.
** FirstLawOfGenderBending: Played straight and inverted. Two guys and two girls each get a genderbended counterpart, and the female-to-male ones seem no less "permenant" than the male-to-female ones.
** SecondLawOfGenderBending: True for Jaka, not as much for the other three. (They hate it at first to varying levels. Joan, who freaks out about it the most, is the first and currently only one who was upset to get over it.)
** ThirdLawOfGenderBending: Averted with all of the actual counterparts, arguably played straight with John's "inner female self".
* LazyArtist: Most of the time. Animation either happens off screen or -- from around Intermission Act 3 onwards -- achieved by copy-pasting part of the image and moving it to a different spot.
* LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt:
** [[invoked]]Lampshaded at the end of Act 2 Act 1. [[spoiler:Rose is stabbed with Kanaya's chainsaw, and underneath her "DEAD" caption there's a "for now..." And unsurprisingly, she does not die completely]].
** [[spoiler:Then averted with the same character, who has gotten a mortal injury. Her sister and Dirk have also both died]].
* LivingProp: The trolls, [[EnsembleDarkhorse of all people]], are made into this during [=IA4=]. To cement this, there's even panels where they appear in the foreground but don't actually say anything on the respective page, appearantly just to remind the readers that they were still there. Elitaa got this the worst, which is ironic since she was supposed to be a borderline ParodySue. Later onto Act Two Act Two, and Aranea is now pretty much the only remotley important non-Leijon troll in the cast, with the rest being [[spoiler:her pawns to serving the Millennium]].
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: So there's eight kids, four gender flipped counterparts to half of the kids, one copy of one of the kids with fire powers, God-knows-how-many copies of another one of the kids, twenty six "regular" troll kids, twelve ectoclones of one of the trolls, four "major" members of the Fox Crew, twelve "side" members of the same group, the Revenge Five, seventeen members of the Millennium, two Simpsonians UU and uu(/Edith and Edmund Quimby), eight human ancestors, thirteen troll ancestors, odd ones out Good Yoshi and Spongebob, and countless parts of the Mario game such as The Evil, The Princess, and the other seven world bosses. The comic started out with just John, Jade, Good Yoshi, and a cameo by Hank Hill, but in Intermission Act 2 the cast exploded, and it exploded again in Intermission Act 4 onwards.
* LukeIAmYourFather: [[spoiler:Dave and Karkat/Kankri are half-ectosiblings thanks to Nepeta]]. Also, while on meth, Roxy [[spoiler:encounters a John that is slightly more similar to canon John. He says that he and Jade are related. Since they aren't in ''this'', the quote makes Roxy freak out]].
* MassiveNumberedSiblings[=/=]TangledFamilyTree: As of now, there are five Egbert kids (seven if you count [[spoiler:Trickster John]] and "Jenn") and nine Harley kids, with a possible tenth if the red demon Jade seen twice is actually from the same universe. The real kicker? Each of those kid sets were born '''''as one person''''' (aside from maybe Red Demon Jade), which split into good/evil twin pairs thanks to Rip, which split even more throughout the adventure and is showing no signs of stopping. Let's not even get started on how Nepeta has twelve clones, each with a different ecto/hemoparent.
* MesACrowd: Use 1-ups right, and you'll end up cloning yourself. Which is done accidentally to John. One of the Johns gets a fire flower and becomes FIRE John Egbert, avoiding confusion unless he loses the powerup. He doesn't lose it in the course of the session, but afterwards he switches his outfit, along with ICE Jade, who was made under a very similar situation.
* MindScrewdriver: There are several explanations of almost everything in this story.
** Intermission Act Three begins with Jade reading a GameFAQS entry written by the author in conherant text, explaining the mechanics of the game a little.
** A few pages after, GPF (the author, not the avatar) ''actually draws a map'' of the inward journey area to show exactly how it works.
** [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=746 [I] GPF: Recap.]] There's supposed to be a second one for Intermission Act Four and the Trip Intermission, but that one is still under construction. There's also ''another'' unfinished recap, this one spanning from the beginning of Act Two to just before the war arc.
** The [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=773 explaination of dream mechanics.]]
** [[http://mspfanventures.com/?adv=588&id=847 "This is getting kind of confusing..."]]
* MixAndMatchCritters: Darkhorse is half skeleton monster, half horse.
* MonsterMash: The very group of protagonists eventually grows into this. The Blue and Yellow Team consists of eight "normal" humans, a human with pyrokinesis, a human with cyrokinesis, a vampire, a zombie, a water demon, two [[spoiler:saccharide and vaugley angelic beings]], and a ghost that used to be part of one of the human's mind. Similarly, the Millennium consists of several vampires, an illusionist witch, a quantum catboy, a vampire who is a borderline EldritchAbomination, a werewolf, a [[spoiler:cyborg]], a mad scientist, a ''hydra'', a ghost made out of water, a giant mecha, and a centaur with a skeleton half replacing the human half.
* MoodWhiplash: Spongebob's [[spoiler:last words towards Jean]] is one of the few moments in the comic that can be considered genuinley sad/heartwarming, depending on who you ask. The very next page is [[spoiler:Edmund asking Edith what the loud sound of Prospit's Moon crashing in the ocean was, with Edith reponding with a YourMom joke, using one of Dave's smilies from canon, and blocking him for no real reason]]. Of course before that Jean noticed the details about the Shipping Wall, leading to some really weird fourth wall joke.
* MoralityPet: John and Jane to Jade. And no, not in the moirail sense. Both of Jade's JerkWithAHeartOfGold examples listed above involve doing something good for them. The former of the two Morality Pets acts as a genuine friend to her and is one of the few people she ''doesn't'' personally insult regularly (playful teasing is fair game though) while the latter has, during a point early into April, started trying to snap Jade into being a proper human being.
* MotiveDecay: The Millennium are a group attempting to take over the economy in LawfulEvil methods, rather than a ChaoticEvil group of Neo-Nazis. The reason being was that Lord Major Quimby essentially broke into one of their meetings, kicked Major's ass, and took over while demoting Major to the Janitor.
* NeverLiveItDown: In-universe, Jade never forgives Karkat for accidentally directing her to the wrong warp pipe back in the Mario Session.
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: Dave parodies this [[spoiler:even before he turned evil, but ''especially'' after]].
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Hank Hill's revenge scheme for breaking his window [[spoiler:eventually bites him when a chain of events leads to Homer Simpson being made, who is then used to create Lord Major Quimby. You know, the guy Hank was after in the first place.]]
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: Waterwraith actually kills one of its own comerades.
* NoIndoorVoice: The Captain, along with speaking in all caps like he did in ''Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals'' (in spite of his rarley talking in canon), also speaks in rediculously large text. Although subverted when the Waterwraith tells him to quiet down. He does, but his text is still written in all caps, impling that he's still screaming, only not as loudly.
* NoNudityTaboo: Homer Simpson. (Don't ask.) Also the naked bank robber and the Curser Woman. For all three of them, this is PlayedForLaughs more than it is for fan service.
* NonIndicativeName: The Shipping Intermission has little to do with romance at all.
* {{Nosebleed}}: Happens to Jade towards the end of Intermission Act One, which leads to the separation arc of the duo in early Intermission Act Two. Oddly, this is one of the few points in the comic that human blood is drawn as dark red.
* NukeEm: [[spoiler:The ending to the Shipping Intermission.]]
* NotSoStoic:
** Twice near the end of Intermission Act Three. [[spoiler:Dirk becomes stunned to the point where he only 'says' ":O!!!!", and later on Dave's reaction to seeing his father and Rose and Roxy's mother's corpses as familiars in Rip's coffin.]]
** Dave in Act 2 in general. Although in context, ''this is not a good thing''.
* NumberOfTheBeast: 616 is a bit of an ArcNumber here.
** One notable example is that the version of the Mario game John and Jade are beta testing is V6.16, which is the reversion where the developers decided to try to make the game constructs be as life-like as possible. They succeeded. Too well.
** Page 616 was the reveal of the Crocker Blade. Page 666 was when [[spoiler:Stan and Peter died for the second time]].
* OffWithHisHead: Hank Hill decapitates Jan. And in the Shipping Intermission, [[spoiler:Eridan gets his head punched off by Equius]].
* OhCrapReaction: Dave's reaction when Terezi tells his future future dreamself that she's gallowsCalibrator.
* OnlySaneMan: Dave. Even the narration clears when he "be" him or "see" him.[[labelnote:Note]]The latter reffers to the narration around him, not whenever he is on screen.[[/labelnote]] Rip also continues playing this from ''Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals'', [[AxCrazy although "sane" might not be the proper word]].
* OnlySixFaces: Averted for the crossover characters across eachother; they are all drawn in a unique "default pose" with the exceptions of Peter and Cleveland (though that's possibly for TakeThat purposes at how the latter can be seen as an {{Expy}} for the former in canon). However, those sprites in question are used a good chunk of the time, but it's less noticable after the Mario Intermission as their subplot doesn't take up as much of the screen time.
* OppositeSexClone: John, Jade, Jane, and Jake each get one; in fact, most of Intermission Act 3 was about them going through their "inward journeys" (largly inspirted by the spirit quest in ''Problem Sleuth'') and creating them. Each of them also have had an issue once made:
** Jean (John's counterpart): Back-hurting breasts.
** Jude (Jade's counterpart): He thinks he can't make dirty jokes without getting away from it as easily.
** Joan (Jane's counterpart): He's the only one that actually doesn't like being in a new gender, period. Though at first it was just his hair before he realized his change.
** [[AwesomeMcCoolname Jaka]] (Jake's counterpart): She actually has no problem at all and even likes her new form. (The narrator at first says she has an issue with her name.)
* OurMonstersAreWeird: One of the bosses in the Mario game is made out of gold and dollar bills. Plus a diamond.
* OverlyLongGag: [[http://mspfanventures.com/?adv=588&id=1310 Kanaya listing why Nepeta is pretty much the only reasonable female romantic option for John.]] She leaves out the alter egos, but still.
* PaintingTheMedium:
** During the "Sweet TROLLS and Hella MORE TROLLS" segment, the arrows were turned into "============>" (which became "=============>" after the introduction of Elitaa). Also (forum only), the thread title always remained as STAHMT, with the subtitles still being added. This also applied for the beginning of Intermission Act Four and for the very brief Sweet Jake and Hella Jane segment.
*** After the introduction of each counterpart, the arrows change from "==>" to "=-=>," then to "===>," "-===>," and finally "====>." Fire John complained about not being represented, so it extended to "-====>." Then to "=====>" with Ice Jade. Then to "=====->" for Vampire Jade, post-[=A2I1=]. ''Then'' to "======>" after the reveal of [[spoiler:Trickster Jade]], "======->" with the reveal of Zombie Jade, "=======->" after counting Johnsprite and Jennsprite, and finally "========>" when [[spoiler:Trickster Jade]] created Blue Demon Jade. [[spoiler:Then Trickster John makes a bunch more alter egoes]] and the narrator gets fed up with arrows, going back to "==>" and it's implied to stay that way until Act 3.
** Mirror only: In most cases, the "hide" text for a spoiler is "CLOSE THIS SHIT." However, when we're as Dave or Rip narrates, "Hide X" is used instead.
*** During Kanaya's recap, "CLOSE THIS SHIT" was still used, only written in her quirk. It's written in John's quirk when he was explaining as to how he met Jade.
** The "Sweet Rose and Hella Dave" segment at the beginning of Intermission Act 4 reverts back to the old "==>" arrows, presumably standing for Rose, Roxy, Dave, and the Auto Responder. Also, at the beginning, the thread was titled "Sweet Rose and Hella Dave," and during the Rose and Roxy updates, it was retitled to "Sweet Rose and Hella Roxy," the updeats on Dave and AR's part being retitled "Sweet AR and Hella Dave."
** [[spoiler:When Jade gets killed by the Caliginous Miles, the title changes to "Hella John."]]
* PairTheSpares: Averted. This comic has Jane/Jake and Dave/Rose as couples, but not their "counterparts" Roxy/Dirk (much to Roxy's dismay) and John/Jade (much to Karkat's dismay, since he doesn't like how they keep hitting on trolls). And speaking of the trolls, only about half of them are in flushed relationships: Karkat/Equius, Terezi/Feferi, Gamzee/Aradia, and troll/human relation John/Nepeta.
* ParodySue:
** Nepeta.
** Averted with the Sinoises, who contrary to common MarySue OC stereotypes invoked in most parodies, are going to be so unimportant that they came painfully close to being some of the ''very few'' characters in the fan fic to never contribute anything at all to the plot. [[spoiler:Elitaa died offscreen]], and around the update where that spoiled action in question happened, Pikmin Fan flat-out confessed to not liking putting them in the story in the first place.
** [[invoked]] "Blue Demon Jade," an alter-ego of Jade spawned by [[spoiler:Trickster Jade]]. Specifically of the SympatheticSue varriety, and through playing the LastOfHisKind trope to rediculous levels.
** Dave's inner female self/Dove.
* PeekABangs: Dave's latest redesign has part of his hair covering one of his eyes. (It didn't at first until after the Forum Update Hiatus.) There is no reason at all for this other than him thinking it looks cool.
* PetTheDog: During WorldWarII, the Condecse was actually on the side of the Allies. [[spoiler:Although this was because Rip made it troublesome for her to take over Earth.]]
* PissTakeRap: Jade and Jude's "[[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=542 Marge Simpson]] [[GoingCommando goes commando]]" rap. Seriously, it rhymes "coitus" with "soy-miss." Also, [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=761 Kanaya's rap]]. Pretty much any rap is going to have really, ''really'' cheesy lyrics.
* PlatonicLifePartners: Appearantly John and Jade, but it's really ''much'' more complicated than that.
* {{Polyamory}}: Between Jane, Jake, and both of their OppositeSexClone[=s=].
* [[{{Prelap}} Postlap]]: The ending of Jade's ancestor story deals with [[spoiler:the deaths of Dave and Dirk's dad and Rose and Roxy's mom, with Jade saying that there's a rumor that some vampire stole their corpses. It then cuts to what's in Rip's coffin: said ancestors' dead bodies being controlled by Rip, with Jade still narrating that there isn't anything to proove this rumor.]]
* PornStash: Jade's ''Boobs'' magazines. She seems to have no problems with reading it in front of John, though. Jake also owns some magazines in this series, and during the Shipping Intermission, just about everyone accuses Jane of owning ''Boobs''[='=]s SpearCounterpart ''Penis''. [[http://mspfanventures.com/?adv=588&id=768 Roxy also owns several issues of]] ''Penis''.
* PutOnABus: ''Trol Seasson'' characters appear at times, only for both of them to "leave the story," meaning they're gone for good.
* RagtagBunchOfMisfits:
** Even though they consist of two sets of siblings, the core protagonist group as of Act Two (John, Jade, Jake, and Jane) is this. We have a movie fanboy who used to worship the person who became the main antagonist of the act; a perverted hipster who's in love with Marge Simpson and her own brother; an adventure loving dork who has a couple hitting on him; and a cake-baker with an OppositeSexClone that has anger issues.
** The Fow Crew, once all sixteen members of them have been revealed. They consist of a BadassNormal [[WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill propane sailsman, his three drinking buddies,]] [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy three]] [[WesternAnimation/AmericanDad household]] [[WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow husbands]] and their respective wifes, one of the family's dog, two of one of said husband's friends, one of another said husband's frend, a nudist friend, and a foul-mouth guy with an afro.
* RainbowSpeak:
** Parodied. So John and Jade have to kill "The Evil" (maroon, also written in comic sans), save "the Princess/Pincess" (magenta), and get "the kiss/the kisss" (blue) from her. Jade was told of this from a "helpful informant" (white). Also, later on we have a "kickass reward" (lime), AKA the chaos emeralds.
** Jean's exposition in Intermission Act Three to Jade avoids this, using underlining for important terms. Although this really serves as a ShoutOut to the early spritelogs with Nannasprite.
* RealLifeWritesThePlot: The reason for the "good twin" trolls aside from Aranea and Meenah appearing for so long. This includes Puerco, but for a different reason: Pikmin Fan admitted he simply hasn't drawn the sprite for yet. When the narration ''does'' truley focus on them as a group for the first time, only four of the five revealed are mentioned. (The fifth, Meenah, is screwing around in the Captor's house.)
* RedHerring:
** There are a few signs during [=IA3=] and a little of [=IA2=] that implied that Roxy has gone sober, became an expy of Sober Gamzee, and attempted to kill Rose. The first page showing them had Roxy in a tank aimed at Rose, [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=517 then where was a pesterlog where she typed in the exact same way Gamzee did]] (and she said OH WAIT shortly after mentioning that John must "marry a Rose"), and once Rose and Roxy are seen again, they have bad injuries. Injuries that even slightly resemble what canon Gamzee had after he used Nepeta's claws to scratch himself. Really now, it turned out that [[spoiler:the tank she had was only to uncover a treasure map, and the injuries came from a random dog attacking them while they were trying to get the key for a treasure chest. The pesterlog was just Roxy screwing around, plain and simple]]. What's more, the Shipping Intermission implied that [[spoiler:Sober Roxy in this fic is just a ''really'' shy geeky girl]]. However, in Act 2, [[spoiler:Roxy ''does'' seem to be verging on the mentally unstable side]].
** Implications that [[spoiler:Jaka is Hank Hill and Vampire Jade is Rip Van Winkle]]. Though this was not without warning the second the theory was proposed: John lampshaded how terrible both twists would be a few pages after the former is raised, and characters frequently comment on it. Now that Jaka and Vampire Jade have swapped their text colors back this theory is all but completely sunk.
* RedemptionEqualsSex: [[spoiler:Darkleer and the Dolorosa]].
* RedOniBlueOni: Several:
** John (red) to Jade (blue), up until the ending of [=IA2=]. After that, it mostly became Red Oni Who Sometimes Goes Blue (John), and Red''der'' Oni Who Almost Never Goes Blue (Jade).
** Jake (red) to Jane (blue). Their counterparts, interestingly, are switched.
** Hank (blue) to the other three major Fox Crew members (red).
** Captain (red) to Rip (blue), though during Intermission Act Four onwards it's the other way around.
** Quimby (red) to Omega Drew Pickles (blue).
** uu/Edmund (red) to UU/Edith (blue). This is even reflected in their ideal text colors.
** Roxy (red) to Rose (blue).
** Dave (red) to Dirk (blue).
* RetCon:
** Parodied with Jade's text color when playing as Luigi. It gets ret-conned back when she answers Rip for the first time in the adventure. Also happens when the author got the color of Tubalcain Alhambra's suit wrong.
** Pikmin Fan pretty much appoligizes for taking the ShipperOnDeck aspect of Roxy and exaggerating it to creepy extremes with the reveal that [[spoiler:she was infected by a "shipper worm"]]. And Kanaya's TotallyRadical personality is only while she's high. Still no excuse for Jade being so perverted and volitile, or Karkat [[http://mspfanventures.com/?adv=588&id=926 being physically violent with his friends]]. The first of all these problems, however, suddenly came back in full force after [[spoiler:Roxy decides to join Dave and Rose's group]].
* RonTheDeathEater:
** In-universe, Auto Responder and Terezi for the Shipping Intermission. [[spoiler:Possibly invoked given how the thing was written by Spongebob]].
** This is probably the only ''Homestuck'' fan fic where [[spoiler:Pre-scratch Dave, Rose, Roxy, and Dirk]] are '''''all''''' villains. It really says a lot when the former three have done acts worse than what the trolls have done. WordOfGod says that this was due to a lack of any [[spoiler:kid vs kid]] battlefics in the fandom.
* RuleOfSymbolism: (FIRE) John protects Jade from getting his by Red/Flushed miles, then Dave protects both of them from getting hit with miles of the same color. Then [[spoiler:Dave and Jade are suddenly hit with Caliginous Miles]]. John/Jade and John/Dave have been teased a lot, yet Dave and Jade don't really work as a couple in that universe.
* RunningGag:
** A character denying any Jade/guy pairing because Jade is a lesbian. This seemed to stop around Intermission Act 4.
** John fainting at the mention of Rose. The first time this happens, amusingly, Nepeta snaps him out of it before he faints.
** "Show [Person or type of person group]log" sometimes, replacing pesterlog or dialoglog.
** To a lesser extent, in the Shipping Intermission, [[spoiler:a few characters get sliced in half, Eridan ''not'' being one of them even though that was how he died in canon]].
** The phrase "o ok then."
** During the second character select screen, all four of the paths involve a Nepeta clone in some way. For each of them, once the clone is shown, Nepeta is reffered to as the "most impurrtant character in SJAHJ." Every path aside from the Robosanta path introduces at least one new color, with the Robosanta path in question elaborating on Maroon Nepeta's abilities by [[spoiler:showing her other body, which ''technically'' counts as a new Nepeta]].
** The phrase "X sucks raw asscocks" and variants.
** From late into Act Two Act Two (though the first time this was used was back in Intermission Act Four), Lake Arlen is totaly not any sort of lake from the ''Zelda'' franchise. Especially not Lake Hylia. Nope, not at all.
* SailorEarth: Elitaa was a parody before essentially vanishing to extra. Although her gag was to ''replace'' Karkat to some extent; their troll tags even have the same initials and Edmund jeers her to stop replacing him and Edith.
* ScrewYourself:
** Subverted. John has a dream where his "inner female self" tries to make out with him. He respondes by ''kicking her in the groin''. When he sees Jean, who resembles his female counterpart, he does the same.
** In [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=722 this page]], Jake and Jane's tounges are notably not touching the tounges of their respective counterparts.
** Hinted at early in Act 2 when Ice Jade says that she thinks John has a crush on his pyrokinetic version. Non-Ice Jade then imagines the two kissing, thinking that it's hot.
* SelfDeprecation: [=IA3's=] opening[[labelnote:Note]]Technically it's more of the preface to the act, since it isn't the page titled with Intermission Act Three[[/labelnote]] is Jade reading Great Pikmin Fan's walkthrough on the fictional Mario game. It basically {{Flanderize}}[=s=] GPF's own writting style, and in the page after the narrator comments that Jade can't understand his walkthrough because he takes too long to get to the point.
* SequenceBreaking: Jade attempts to do this in Intermission Act 1, by taking her and John to the Warp Zone to skip the first seven worlds. This doesn't exactly work. Especially for Jade.
* ShaggyDogStory: [[spoiler:Getting "the kisss". At the point in the story where the Princess meets with the plumber players and they ''aren't'' struggling with a villain, three of them are in a relationship (two of which in a relationship with eachother plus their counterparts), four of them are away, and one of them the Princess doesn't want to kiss because she smells like dead fish]].
* ShipperOnDeck:
** [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=178 Karkat ships John/Jade.]] And agressivly, at that. Though he really just doesn't want any troll/human relationships and he quickly picked up on their... [[LampshadeHanging closeness.]]
-->FCG: "YOU KNOW YOU JOHN N JADE IF YOU SUCH FRENDS YOU SHOULD STOP DROOLIN OVER TROLLS AND WHY NOT JUST FUCK EECHOTHER?"\\
Much later on in an image, "'JADE'S A LESBIAN' MY ASS. YOU KNOW THERE'S SOMETHING BETWEEN THEN." He oddly strikes out Jade/Dave in the same image, and his commentary consists entirley of "NOPE." [[spoiler:Act 2 reveals that they have a really, ''really'' fucked up friendship, so in hindsight there's no wonder as to why Karkat's thoughts on that was essentially a NoJustNoReaction]].
:: :Spongebob ships them as well, although even ''more'' agressivly. And there's a reason: He believes [[spoiler:that every other romantic option is evil, incestuous, sexuality erasing (this isn't against Jade's sexuality since it's '''''heavily''''' implied that she's not really lesbian), or leaves John and Jake without romantic partners]].
** Roxy seems to ship Dave/Jade and John/Rose. Except that [[RunningGag Jade's a lesbian]], Dave and Rose are in a relationship with eachother, and John used to faint around Rose until ''very'' recently. And she ships Jane/Jake and Dirk/herself, and while the former is working out, the latter isn't. Karkat thinks that Roxy wanting to be with Dirk is just a wish fulfilling dream of hers.
** Prospit and Derse seem to heavily ship Dave/Rose, partially because of the kernel prototyped with dreamselvs of both of them that was carried into the towers, and they themselves were already a couple.
* ShipSinking: This adventure has a nasty habit of axing FanPreferredCouple[=s=], to the extent that Pikmin Fan actually wishes the reader good luck at the opening Author's Notes. At the rate this comic is going, the only possible endgame couples are Dave/Rose, John/Jade, and/or Jane/Jake, and even then none of those three look too shabby. (Except for the former, which ironically [[spoiler:contains the ''least'' stable character when Act Two Act One ends]].)
** Jake and Dirk's ''[[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=264 very first on screen conversation]]'' [[spoiler:basically blows any chance of the two getting together]]. Jake doing it in a blunt manner doesn't really help. [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=719 Although there is this...]] [[spoiler:nope Dirk turned to the darkside Dirk/Jake isn't happening close up shop people]].
** Nepeta/Karkat after the former realizes the latter is dating a human. Prior to this, there was actually some chance of them getting together, assuming Nepeta breaks up with John first. [[spoiler:Which ''does'' happen, but much later]].
** If the name of Roxy's PornStash is anything to go by, she's straight. There goes "Cotton Candy." (Oh yeah, and now there's [[spoiler:how Roxy is now on the side of a murderer simply because of her obsession with shipping]].) Also, Jane is straight as well, with the exact same evidence.
** Every ship with a kid and their patron troll from canon, except possibly John/Vriska [[spoiler:assuming Vriska and Tavros's relationship hits a fault]]. (Which at this rate is impossible regardless; after all, [[RuleOfFunny what's so funny about couples people actually ''want'' hooking up?]]) Dave has Terezi blocked due to an unseen death threat and Rose does not appear ammused at Kanaya when she's stonned. Both of these happened ''before'' [[spoiler:Dave and Rose start trying to kill everyone else]]. And let's not even get '''''started''''' on Jade/Karkat.
*** More spefically, Rose/Kanaya during a... sort-of flashback. Whatever [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=1142 this drug trip]] can be considered. And now [[spoiler:Davosesprite (without the Rose part) asked Rose to flat-out kill Kanaya because she suspects them of attempting to get Jade killed. ''And Rose actually attempts to murder her'', which only fails because Kanaya managed to fend herself off just in time, which also very intentionally led to Rose's death.]]
*** And [[spoiler:Dave/Terezi after Terezi crosses one of Dave's many bizarre, unhinted lines by comparing him to Sasuke Uchiha. He stabs her ''from her computer screen'']].
*** This comic's designated patrons and their ships aren't safe either, though this isn't as big since the most popular out of them is still crack: [[spoiler:Nepeta broke up with John due to picking up on the sheer ammount of ShipTeasing between him and other characters, Kanaya decided to vent out on Jade just before dying and used her death as a sort of end punctuation to the rant, Jake and Feferi are screwed up in many, many ways, and Jane/Equius was never really a thing in the first place]].
** Jade being a lesbian. Although according to her, [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=526 there are ways around it....]] And then there's the several implications that she's only actually bisexual.
*** ...And Dave/Jade specifically [[SerialEscalation blows all of the above examples out of the water, even the three out of four patron ships.]] [[spoiler:Dave (and possibly Rose) pretty much has urges to kill Jade, and whenever he's blamed for actually attempting to kill her, he gets someone to kill the person who blames him.]] Not counting how Jade probably thinks Dave is completely and utterly pathetic, and at one point her vampire ego insults him almost as bad as she insults Karkat. '''''Even more,''''' their hidden hatred was what kicked off the main plot for the last pages of Act 2 Act 1 and all of the plot in Act 2 Act 2 so far. Even though this all happened ''after'' Karkat's "corrections" to Roxy's shipping grid occured, it's really no wonder why in hindsight Karkat's comment on that pairing in this universe was just "NOPE."
** [[spoiler:Any and every possible human Prospit Dreamer/human Derse Dreamer ship. If the attempted murder of Kanaya wasn't a sign that Dave and Rose crossed the line, then them and Roxy and Dirk destroying a Middle School did.]]
* ShipTease: Sweet ''Jegus'', where do we begin on that. John/Jade is by far the most teased couple during the Mario Intermission (even though Jade's a lesbian), with John/Dave supposed to follow that. [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=212 These]] [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=526 two]] pages are by far the most blatant example of the former. The Trip Intermission and Act 2 are so far implying John/Equius and Jade/Kanaya (even though ''both'' people in the former are in a relationship with someone else), complete with Equius finding out John doesn't consider himself a homosexual, and asks if he could... "[[ThatCameOutWrong make]] [[EvenTheGuysWantHim him]] [[StupidSexyFlanders one.]]"
* ShoutOut:
** The Shipping Intermission has one to ''Literature/OfMiceAndMen''.
** The cheat that allows for an infinite ammount of party members to fight in a Mario session rather than just three is the [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Bolero of Fire]], only transfered to keyboard format.
** Hydra is based off of the three[[labelnote:Note]]Actually five, but two of them are of the same type.[[/labelnote]] dragon boss battles in the 3DS Argumented Reality games.
** Jade's nonsensical and somewhat insulting names for her teammates and self to the "names" of the Troll Slayers in ''Webcomic/TailsGetsTrolled''.
-->''Jade: [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=1751 together we make... THE BLUE AND YELLOW TEAM!!!!]]
* ShootTheShaggyDog:
** [[spoiler:The Shipping Intermission]].
** [[spoiler:Everything in regards to Spongebob, up to and including the Shipping Intermission, which was his own fan fiction]].
** [[spoiler:Anything building up John/Rose or (though this didn't get as much focus) Dave/Jade. The chances of these pairings happening is next to impossible, because Rose, Dave, Dirk, and Roxy are all evil and verging on the insane side. Not to mention how Jade has made it clear several times -- once onscreen through a long rant -- that she hates the Strider family]].
** [[spoiler:Hank's storyline]].
* [[ShowWithinAShow Series Within a Comic]]: ''Coolstuck'', a comic by Dave about 3 guys who play a game. Just as SJAHJ is supposed to be ''Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff'' with ''Homestuck'' characters, CS is supposed to be ''Homestuck'' with ''Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff'' characters. Also, Dave was the writter of this universe's versions of ''Jailbreak'', ''Bardquest'', and ''Problem Sleuth''.
* ShowDontTell: Inovked with the differences between the alter-egos and their originals. Also, Equius and Feferi are supposed to be Jane and Jake's patron trolls respectivley, but all there is to show for that is that they've been hitting on them during memos. Kanaya's patronage with Jade and to a lesser extent Nepeta's patronage with John are a lot more clear.
* ShrugOfGod: Great Pikmin Fan himself is unsure as to what the hell the Shipping Intermission is supposed to symbolize outside of foreshadowing a few events later on in the comic. He also confirmes a few times that occasionally he just makes stuff up about the story.
* SiblingRivalry: John and Jane are rather... competitive in the Mario game. Or, at least they were, before teaming up during the inward journey.
* SirSwearsALot: Several characters, including John and especially Jade. "Fuck" was the very first word of dialogue said in the entire comic.
** Taken UpToEleven with Fox Crew member Fuckass Mike (the only OriginalCharacter on the team), who's quirk is that he says "motherfucking" before ''every noun''.
** UU/Edith has sworn at least once in every conversation she's been involved in.
* SlapSlapKiss: It's implied that the relationship between [[spoiler:Jade and Jake's mother and Dave and Dirk's father]] was like this.
* SlapstickKnowsNoGender: Between Jade having a modis that repeatedly punches her (as well as getting a nosebleed which leads to being punched off a ship), Kanaya getting hit in the face with Vriska's butt (it makes less sense in context), Rose and Roxy getting mauled by a dog, and Jane, Jean, and Jaka getting kicked between the legs before ''anyone else'', it's safe to say that no female character whatsoever is safe from SBAHJ-esque shinanegans.
* SpotlightStealingSquad: Dave during the beginning of [=IA4=]. Hell, even a bit after. "Sweet Rose and Hella Dave" ''was'' supposed to be focused on them, Roxy, and AR equally, and Rose and Roxy's plot does involve only them. However, Dave's part barley includes AR more than the other eight people that contacted him. The part from when the character select screen ended to when the perspective shifts back to John and Jade had Dave as almost entirley the main character, with the Lalondes barley getting any spotlight. This has since been dealt with by [[spoiler:making Dave a villain in Act 2... though from there he becomes more relevant and more of a threat than ''Rip'', the comic's designated main villain]]. Lampshaded when Dave and Rip have appearantly started a debate over relevancy.
* StaircaseTumble: Oddly averted. In fact, one of the thread titles was "where stairs are surprisingly friendly."
* TheStarscream: [[spoiler:Rip, who actually ''succeeds'' in dethroning Quimby. She currently has a bunch of familiars released all over World 8, but since every kid is out of the Mario session (or at least World 8, in Teal Nepeta's case), she doesn't pose a threat to them. Yet.]]
* StatusQuoIsGod: The Mario Intermission was rather static for the most part; none of the human kids or troll kids die permenantly, and the Fox Crew and Millennium keep killing off members of eachother only for them to come back. [[spoiler:However, in Intermission Act 4, Fox Crew deaths became "permenant," and during Act 2 all of the group in question die]].
* StealthPun: The Shipping Intermission's ships are not-so-subtle puns, mostly of fandom IdiosyncraticShipNaming:
** The ship Dave starts out in is massive and called the [[{{Slash}} S.S. Slasher]].
** Rose (and Roxy) are riding a plush of {{Shrek}}, an orge, with needles in its eyes. [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=003486 Sound familiar?]]
** Karkat's (stolen) ship bears the logo of communism. Hammer + sickle, their weapons in both ''Homestuck'' and SJAHJ.
** Jade's ship is the yellow ship from the beginning of SJAHJ. Also nicknamed a "Prospit Ship" even though Prospit doesn't exist, reffering to John and Jade's dream moon.
* StraightGay: Jade, Jean, Joan, and Jaka. Although Jade... is pretty perverted.
* StripPoker: Cleveland Brown and Tubalcain Alhambra are first seen playing this, even though they're supposed to be fighting.
* StunnedSilence: Dirk's :O!!!! expression.
* StylisticSuck: And yet, it doesn't use [=JPEGs=] until the last page before the end of Intermission Act 3. And it barley uses them since.
* SuddenlySexuality:
** Jade is supposed to be only attracted to girls, yet one page shows that she finds two guys kissing to be "kinda hot," complete with giving a "Drew Pickles smile."
** During the Dave's IFS arc, Kanaya claims herself to now be bi, then switches back to only being attracted to girls after looking at Dirk's ass.
* TankGoodness: [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=117 The first page with Rose and Roxy]] shows the latter in a tank. What exactly is going on isn't revealed until over six hundred pages later, where it turns out [[spoiler:Roxy was just trying to blow a hole in the wall to uncover a hidden treasure map.]]
* TakeThat: [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=910 This page]] and the following is one to the "forevver alone" meme surrounding Eridan.
* TeasingCreator: Mild example: The fan fic endlessly teases-but-they-aren't-a-couple-yet Prospitcest during the first few acts. Jade and Jude even almost kiss Jean at one point, before John brings up his relationship with Nepeta. But because of the polygamy-issue, Jean and Jade are now ''this'' close to being a couple in this fan fic. ''And then [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=794 this]] happens''. But if anything that page raises hope for the pairing in question, especially seeing as [[spoiler:all other romantic love options are slowly turning to the evil side]].
* ThatCameOutWrong: Cronus telling Karkat that he's "never in the mood..." the mood for Cronus hitting on him, of course.
* ThemeInitials: Hank Hill and Rip Van Winkle's chumhandles (rightWorker and hellishHuntress, respectivly) have eachother's initials.
* ToiletHumor: The later part of Intermission Act One. Which leads you to wonder exactly what John was doing with a laxative.
* TotallyRadical: John and Jade. Was originally supposed to apply to nearly everyone, but the author decided against that, attempting to keep the other characters more true to their canon selfs. Except Kanaya, who fell victim to John and Jade's characters.
* {{Troll}}:
** Spongebob Squarepants sends threats and manipulates the heroes into reading his shipping fan fics. It's revealed in Act 2 Intermission 1 that this is all an act, in revenge for three different Jades chewing him out in the first conversations from his perspective.
** John acts like a troll to his own past selves, to the extent that even ''Jade'' finds it cruel. '''''[[EvenEvilHasStandards Jade.]]'''''
** And Jade [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=1473 seems to be taking up trolling tendancies.]]
** Roxy, on a more meta level, for impersonating two villains from ''Homestuck'' (sober Gamzee and Lord English) in pesterlogs. And the first of which raised a mystery for a decently-long ammount of time (Beginning of Intermission Act Three to beginning of Intermission Act Four.)
* TrollingCreator: Dave in-universe. He's responce to when John, FIRE John, and Jean read about [[spoiler:Geromy getting killed off]]?
-->TG: AINT I A DICK?
* TheUnintelligible:
** In ''Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals'', Zorin occasionally spoke with her dialogue written like a troll quirk. Here, it's turned UpToEleven, where her quirk pretty much consists of as many combinations of troll/kid quirks without any conflicts as possible, forming things like... [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=145 this]]. Pikmin Fan actually had to translate what she said on the forum. Since Zorin's dialogue in that page there has been a troll character introduced who adds at least two more subsitutions to the already used ones ''and'' who'se quirk involves mispelling things. So now her dialogue gets even ''[[http://mspfanventures.com/?adv=588&id=1770 more]]'' incomprehensible.
** As of January 11th, in responce to critisism, Pikmin Fan will go back through the series and edit the dialogue so that the series as a whole will avoid this trope. He already started on the first three panels.
* UnrealisticBlackHole: The [[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext Chinese food black hole]]. For starters, it's implied that it destroyed the Chinese restaurant it formed in, yet the characters ''outrun it'' and escape to saftey. And it does ''nothing'' to its surroundings unless they actually jump into it. And it's appearantly a huge source of magic. And ''then'' Good Yoshi eats it, the magic transforming him into [[VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG Boshi]].
* UnwantedHarem: A mild example, but Dave appears to have had ''every'' kid human, troll, and Simpsonian crushing on him. Even heterosexual John and homosexual Jade. uu/Edmund and Meenah (and possibly Eridan) seem to be the only explicit exceptions. Well, that's how it was, [[spoiler:when Dave turned evil nobody outside of his lackies likes him anymore.]]
* VideoGameSettings: The 8 Mario Worlds.
** World 1: GreenHillZone.
** World 2: ShiftingSandLand.
** World 3: PalmtreePanic.
** World 4: BubblyClouds.
** World 5: UndergroundLevel. [[spoiler:DeathMountain on the surface. Oddly, you're supposed to begin in the caves]].
** World 6: TheLostWoods.
** World 7: SlippySlideyIceWorld.
** World 8: As per tradition, LethalLavaLand.
* VillainousIncest: Arguably [[spoiler:Dave and Rose, due to being related in ''Homestuck'' and seemingly taking on an antagonistic role near the end of Act 2 Act 1]].
* VisibleSilence: Again, ":O!!!!"
* TheVoiceless: Planksprite, from the offshoot universe where [[spoiler:Rip becomes extremely powerful and Dave wins the battle between him and the protagonists]]. He only spoke twice, but both times he used badly compressed JPEGS of Kurloz's canon talksprites.
* WalkingSpoiler: [[spoiler:Dave, Aranea, ''Dove'', and the Tricksters]], the latter two groups had their existance being spoilers. The counterparts ''were'' this, going by up to Intermission Act Three (they were hinted at back when John and Jade finally met with Jane and Jake; between John springing his into existance and the actual counterpart's appearance was an entire 70+ page intermission), though now they're not quite.
* WeHardlyKnewYe:
** Most of the Millennium [[spoiler:and the "minor" members of the Fox Crew. This was basically Darkhorse's whole joke until the reveal that he has some kind of extremely strong power]].
** The troll ancestors. All of them.
* WebcomicTime: Barring flashbacks, the entire set of events in this comic so far take place within four days. Day 1 (February 13th, which was actually a month ''after'' the comic had first started) went from the beginning to the dream sequences in Intermission Act 2; and tecnically at a point around Sweet TROLLS and Hella MORE TROLLS, as it did crossover to midnight. Day 2 covered the inward jorney, tower ascention, and a good chunk of events going on outside of the Mario game after it ended. Day 3 is ongoing, but it's night as of the latest update thanks to a several hour skip while the Fire/Ice duo were at stalemate with [[spoiler:Roxy]] and the rest of the Blue and Yellow Team were relaxing at Nepeta's main base. Kanaya's comments implies that it's around 11 pm, so day 3 is extremely close to concluding. Even more, unlike ''Homestuck'' the actual time is constantly listed whenever someone pesters another, which is becoming considerably more often.
* WhamEpisode: In page order:
** [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=791 This]] four-page sequence, at the time. The comic skirts around John/Jade quite often [[spoiler:and then Rose and Dave kiss]]. Aranea ''rubs this into the reader's faces'' in Act Two Intermission One.
** Jack getting the Queen's ring wasn't unexpected at all. After putting it on, he contemplates the result of getting prototyped with Bowser, the Ice King, Dave, Rose, and Edward Cullen. [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=1200 But then he puts every single thought to the side resulting in this, the comic's very first clear hint that]] [[spoiler:Dave, Rose, or both (it turns out both) are not as good as they seem]].
** "[[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=1380 And thus, Sponge8o8's first conversashin from his perspective.]]" Not the conversation itself, but the image. "It's War" ''indeed.'' Worse, Fire John is shown to ''like'' being involved with [[spoiler:his battle against Dave]].
** [[spoiler:Trickster Jade's appearance. Although since tricksters have became canon, this significantly lessens the blow of the update]].
** The zoomouts, starting in Act 2 Act 2 from when Roxy [[spoiler:unleashes the Curser Women by blowing up the magic door slealing them in their dungeon]]. Basically, [[spoiler:Dirk found a possible weakness for Dave, Damara seems to be working with Aranea on something, and clouds from World 4 -- revealed to be used as a stand-in for ''Skaia'' -- are showing John standing in a rainy area holding a shield that wasn't even ''made'' yet, Jade meeting up with all of her alter-egos seen so far including the previously unseen Blue Demon Jade, Jake during the Curser Woman fight (only himself and the roof of the restroom he's standing on is visible, as in the actual panel it happens in), and Jane ''using the chaos emeralds to enter super form''. WordOfGod says that those last four events will all happen within [=A2A2=]. A fifth cloud shows Robosanta's ghost meeting with the ghosts of Hank Hill and Integra Heck, and things such as Geromy working on God tiering Jeff and that the multiverse is part of a tree in Black Hell are shown to wrap it up.]]
* WhamLine: The ending line in the short conversation from "[[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=1279 Rose: Answer.]]" and the following page.
-->TG: nepeta has\\
TG: in a sort of way and in an accidental way\\
TG: framed us\\
TG: and kanaya bought it\\
TG: since this is kanaya were talking about that only leaves one option for me to propose\\
TG: [[spoiler:killing her]]
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** If the doodles during the Unite/Synchonize set of updates is any indication, Elitaa was supposed to be Jane's original patron troll, and Equius and Nepeta were going to share the role of John's. However, as revealed in Act 2 Intermission 1, Pikmin Fan simply ''stopped liking'' the idea of Elitaa and decided to make her unnotable, with John's patron appearantly being only Nepeta and Jane's being Equius. (Also, there was the concern of the elephant in the room that is Elitaa looking like a hybrid of John and Jade, with this hybrid developing a romantic intrest with their individual inspritation's canon ectomother.)
** Pikmin Fan stated that the war arc was to go in a completely different direction than it is now. For one, the classmates were supposed to be involved more.
** [[spoiler:Dave was originally going to undergo a heroic sacrifice -- if ''Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals'' would be any indication, it is likley that he was meant to be some sort of Alucard expy. However, the dialogue was written so that either making Dave an antagonist or having him run away are the only viable options that came to Pikmin Fan's mind at the time, so he went with the former due to finding it more interesting]].
* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: Four hundred pages in, this is finally averted when AuthorAvatar GPF's walkthrough of "Mario" shows that John, Jade, and Hank live in Texas. The Striders and Lalondes presumably live there to, and John's house is within walking distance from their residence. (As Dirk was able to walk over by the portal where John's house was pre-entry and entered the session.) And the park -- which is within walking distance of the Lalonde's house, was reached by a Dream Dave in the middle of his trip from his house to John's house.
* WholePlotReference: John and Dave's arc in Act Two Act Two to the Sasuke Retrieval Arc in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''; to the extent that [[spoiler:there is going to be a battle between the two at a historical waterfall-filled valley]].
* WhyDontYouJustShootHim: Played with. Towards the end of Act Two Intermission One, [[spoiler:Hank, captured by Janitor and Zorin, asks Aranea why doesn't she just shoot him. She replies with "Ok" and shoots him afterward.]]
* WillTheyOrWontThey '''''John and Jade'''''. Just fueled by Spongebob lampshading this whenever pestering them or their counterparts: "[=HAVE YoU FUCKED (JADE/JoHN) YET?=]" Even worse, ''twice'' it was mentioned that alternate versions of them had hooked up, and to add fuel to the fire one of them seems to be working out while the other one hooked up and broke up offscreen.
* WithFriendsLikeThese: With her constant pervertedness, [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=209 short temper]], and joking about her close friend's parent's sex lifes, it's something of a wonder why John is such a close friend to Jade. Jane and Joan partially lampshade this when [[spoiler:Jade gets hit by the miles caused by The Evil]] when they say that they barley got to know her. For that matter, Dave's notably a ''lot'' more stuck-up than he was in canon, complete with thinking that he's going to be the big hero and outright insults John and Hank Hill. (Though not directly to them.)
* TheWorfEffect:
** Bowser, getting killed offscreen ''very'' early into the story by The Evil, and with The Evil taking over as the villain. It's somewhat like the Prospit vs. Derse war in ''Homestuck''.
** [[spoiler:Darkhorse is possibly one of the strongest characters in the comic. Why? ''He'' was the one responsible for Hecksing's death, up to and including the death of Alucard]].
* WouldHitAGirl:
** At one point, when Jane and Jake are guarding the entrance to World 8-4, the command is given (to no one in particular) to punch them in their faces. John punches Jane (although he appears to punch her ''side'' rather than her face) without hesitation. But Jane punches him back, and due to being at a higher level, she takes out way more health than he does to her.
** John accidentally kicks Jane in the groin in his sleep. After her screaming from the pain wakes everybody up, John appologises to whoever he kicked... although after finding out who it was, he responds with "oh. it's you." in a less apologitic expression. He later kicks Jean in the groin, only this time it's very intentional (but caused by a misunderstanding).
** Eridan attempts to outright murder Terezi in a duel by opening fire on her... [[spoiler:before Feferi walks in and ''slaps him'']].
** There are only two women in the Millennium, and Hank seems to be hell bent on killing one of them more than any of the other members (even the leader). The other woman is sliced in half by her own weapon. Twice.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Rip seems to go by the OVA design of having dark blue hair, rather than black. It's implied that at least Jade and her ancestor have blue hair as well. Jade and Jake also have a shade of blue, taking Spongebob's shipping wall into consideration. Edith has the same dark blue, but it looks lighter in her first appearance. Although she dyes it. Edmund, much to his dismay, ''naturally'' has blue hair.
* YourHeadAsplode: Karkat's reaction to finding out that he is created from a combination of human and troll ectoslime, after constantly opposing troll/human dating. Thankfully it was just a dreamself.
* YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle: After over one thousand pages[[labelnote:Note]]If you include the Shipping Intermission.[[/labelnote]], during the ''very last page before the Mario Intermission is '''finally''' over'', Nepeta comments that the session itself is only about a third of the main story.
* ZillionDollarBill: The title screen, for some reason, features an image of the ten million dollar bill from ''Film/{{Idiocracy}}''. This has yet to appear in the adventure itself, aside from a one-shot joke late into the comic where it shows up on a poster in front of Tom Landry Middle.

[[folder:General and Cross-Arc]]

* AbortedArc:
** It was implied around Intermission Acts Three and Four that Meenah would kick Dave down a notch somehow. [[spoiler:Meenah's essentially dead]], so this is unlikley.
** It was blatantly foreshadowed that Dave would die and Dirk would have to step into his shoes; a sort of inverse to what happened with Dave and Bro in canon [[spoiler:and fitting the events of the Shipping Intermission to an extent]]. Either this was a RedHerring or [[spoiler:Dave and Dirk, as well as the Lalondes, turning evil wasn't part of the original plan]].
** The patronage. Or more specifically, Jane and Equius's relationship. The other three groups (John and Nepeta, Jade and Kanaya, and to a lesser extent Jake and Feferi, though the latter was muddled by Terezi constantly being involved with them) had a decent ammount of interactions and arcs. Jane and Equius, on the other hand, just have a few neutral conversations with Equius occasionally hitting on Jane for some reason. Him being her patron troll is practically informed.
* TheAce: Dave and Nepeta. Jade is also inexplicably good at the Mario game.
* AerithAndBob: John, Jade, Jane, Jake, Jean, Jude, Joan, and... ''Jaka''. Also Jenn.
* AllMenArePerverts / [[AllWomenAreLustful All Women Are Perverts]]: ''Every human kid'' seems to be a pervert; they all have some form of porn collection except John and Rose (Dave doesn't either but he looks at Dirk's), and it's been very slightly implied that there is something with Rose too. John is the only one so far who had not really ''done'' anything perverted.
* AnachronicOrder: When it comes to John and Jade, the plot is surprisingly chronological for the most part. ''Anyone else'', including their alter-egos, on the other hand?
* AmbidextrousSprite: Believe it or not, this is ''averted'' more often than not: Asymetical features such as John's slimer on his shirt are flipped on his sprite. Hair, however, plays this straight, even in mouse-drawn images.
* {{Angrish}}: Very frequent. Of note, various characters shout "Magmaargh!" [[http://www.mariowiki.com/Magmaargh Which is actually the name of a Mario enemy.]]
* AnimeHair: All eight kid ancestors, except Betty Crocker. (Who's a real person in this instead of a brand logo.)
* ArcNumber: [[NumberOfTheBeast 616]] in a similar manner to 413/612/1025/111 in ''Homestuck''. Arguably, 214 fits this as well.
* ArcSymbol: Rip's iconagraphy of a hat, which resembles [[WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland Ezekiel's]] touque. Also, [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=759 Edith is appearantly wearing a hat similar to that]], and she looks like she's in an outfit that resembles Ezekiel's as well.
* ArcWords: "Rip." Usually as a WrittenSoundEffect.
* ArtEvolution: More like ''de''-evolution, but the same effect is given. At first, only copy-and-pasted art is used for most characters, but then they get SBAHJ-styled sprites that progressivly get crappier sometimes. [[http://mspfanventures.com/?adv=588&id=640 Here's]] one of the uglier images that took advantage of the new MS Paint tools.
* ArtShift.
* ArtifactTitle: Around the latter parts of Intermission Act Two, the story actually starts to resemble ''Problem Sleuth'' more than ''Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff''.
* AscendedExtra:
** Nepeta, to the point where she's orcastrating something massive and is behind quite a few of the comic's events.
** Kanaya, Equius, and Feferi within the series, who started off as rather minor characters before becoming the designated "main" trolls along with Nepeta.
** Jane and Jake, who were originally parodies of the "villainous doppleganger" architype before becoming a part of '''''the''''' main cast in Intermission Act 3.
** Aranea is arguably one of the most important of the trolls, right behind Nepeta. For starters, she gets an entire intermission centered around herself and stories told by her -- something ''none'' of the other characters so far have had. And now [[spoiler:she's the cause of most of the troll deaths]].
** Dotty Campbell was a one-shot-then-cameo extra on ''Family Guy'', but became a semi-recurring character here. For one, she's the only member of the Fox Crew who isn't dead yet.
* AuthorAppeal:
** All of the ''[[Series/TheBigBangTheory Big Bang Theory]]'' references.
** Pikmin Fan does not like Gamzee, as he said on his fan fiction.net profile. When the deaths start happening in the Shipping Intermission, no points for guessing who's one of the first characters killed off. [[spoiler:When the trolls ''finally'' start dieing for real, guess again who's one of the first to go]]. To make matters worse, his ancestor is the only one to die who was not killed by another person, but rather died in an accident.
** You can tell Pikmin Fan has a thing for nudists.
* AuthorAvatar: A green Pikmin without any features. He sometimes speaks directly to the audience in his own quirk. [[spoiler:And he is now dead]].
* AxCrazy: The thirteen Nepetas provide a whole ''range'' of sanity, taking the offhand mention of trolls closer to tyrian being more agressive and violent. Tyrian Nepeta, on the far end, will occasionally try to kill people out of fits of frustration.
* BackForTheDead:
** [[spoiler:Peter Griffin. But this was so that Peter's soul would just be on Earth along with Stan's, and have not entered the afterlife waiting room, so he can capture them and use the energy to transport the pyramid in World 2 over towards World 7]].
** Non-revival example: [[spoiler:Boomhauer, Bill, and Dale all die shortly after their third appearance]].
** Bowser and the Ice King. The latter has been getting ''more'' screentime as a ghost, however.
* BeigeProse: Especially the narrator.
* BelligerentSexualTension: Between [[Manga/{{Hellsing}} Rip Van Winkle]] and [[WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill Hank Hill]]. No, really.
* BigBad: WordOfGod says that the final villain will be [[spoiler:Rip Van Winkle]]. However, the big bad of the Mario Intermission was clearly The Evil, and the big bad of Act Two so far seems to be [[spoiler:Dave]].
* {{Bizarrchitecture}}: It's first [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=473 heavily]] [[http://mspfanventures.com/?adv=588&id=475 implied]], then [[http://mspfanventures.com/?adv=588&id=961 confirmed]], that Jade's house is built on top of John's house.
* BlondesAreEvil: Major, Luke, Schrodinger, Doctor, [[spoiler:Dave, Rose, Roxy, and Dirk]].
* BonusBoss: [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} Robosanta]] is outright described as being one of these. Plus the creature made entirley out of dollar bills, gold, and a diamond.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Countless times.
** In one point, while Jade was accidentally sent back to World 1 and attempts to catch up with John, she somehow ends up briefly running through Great Pikmin Fan's room while he's explaining the inspiration for that particular scene. GPF himself questions exactly how Jade got in there, but this isn't answered until much later.
** Rip Van Winkle blatantly asks FIRE John to speak in a more readable text color than white. Similarly, back in Intermission Act One, Jade insists that John "tolks the Pincess in pink." [sic.] Both of these where spoken conversations, not typed. The second one is called back to, but through pesterchum rather than being spoken.
** Once John and Jade finally meet up, John remarks that if the mario session was a play this would be the end of act two. Jade answers with "not yet." This is about half of the way into Intermission Act Two.
** When someone was about to exposit, Jade remarks that this isn't [[TakeThat Homestuck Act 6 Act 3]], but Sweet Jade and Hella John Intermission Act 4.
** In a ''plot point'', Aranea [[spoiler:kills Great Pikmin Fan's self insert and ''uses the recaps to get information on the comic's events''. She also attempts to hijack the narrative (again) and contact Dave, but this only resulted in Dave blowing up the computer with his sharingan powers and causing her to lose a leg and a tooth]].
* BrotherSisterIncest:
** One-sided, [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=718 Jade outright tries to make out with Jake]]. Er... [[OppositeSexClone Jaka.]] This happens several times.
--->Jaka: GAH!!!!\\
Jaka: Jade you no wer sisters rite?\\
Jade: dont care\\
John: o man if roes sees this shell freek the fuck out.
** A bit more subtle because them being siblings isn't reminded to the readers: Karkat and Dave are half-siblings. (Don't ask.) Karkat sees Dave's new "emo" look (Don't ask about this either) and thinks he's some kind of cute girl. John points out that it's a guy. Karkat in unphased due to him being bisexual. Then John says it's Dave. Karkat's responce is silence.
** [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=2050 "Jake: Blow everyone's minds."]] Jake confesses sudden love for Jade. Jade is freaked out by it.
* CallBack:
** Many, many gags to ''Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals'': Frown of worry, DO YOU REALLY WANT TO TAKE CHANGE, the liquid metal man vs. judge in a court case... one of Spongebob's fan fics has a similar summary to chapter 9 of HUC. However, this seems to have stopped after the Mario Intermission.
** During the Jane-Jake-Joan-Jaka romantic dispute, Jake in a desperate attempt to prove some sort of point yells for Dirk (who had a crush on him in the past) to kiss him. Dirk's reaction there, and for a good chunk of the remaining intermission until Jade snaps him out of it, is ":O!!!!" [[StunnedSilence And nothing else]]. Much later on, [[spoiler:and coincidentally ''right'' after Dirk's (and Roxy's) death]], Jake cries out for ''Jade'' to kiss him, and Jade reacts in ''the exact same way as Dirk did''. Well, except for the fact that she managed to snap out of it on her own near-instantly.
* CanadaEh: uranianUmbra (AKA Edith Quimby) [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=587 types]], and talks, in a very heavy Canadian accent, complete with adding a "U" after ''every'' "O" unless it's the first of a double.
* CanonDiscontinuity: The ''Trol Seasson'' crossover is ''never'' mentioned again (barring the recap and a ''[[http://mspfanventures.com/?adv=588&id=796 very]]'' brief mention by Dave that actually took place in the past) once both characters leave the story; which is odd, considering how Karkat's duel match against Anger was supposed to be a huge move in Troll History and how continuity-filled the webcomic is. The flashbacks we've seen in relation to the trolls do not mention the trol race at all.
* CaptainObvious: The narrator, sometimes.
* CastingGag:
** Unintentional at first, but [[StuckInTheirShadow Jade as Luigi]] and [[EnsembleDarkhorse Jake as Waluigi]]. And John and Jade as the Mario ''brothers''.[[labelnote:Note]]But they're not related in SJAHJ, or at least definitley not siblings. (As the ancestor arc revealed.)[[/labelnote]]
** [[WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy Nazz]] as the princess that everyone wants a kiss from.
* CensorBox: On everything naked.
* CerebusSyndrome: For a while during Intermission Act Two and Intermission Act Three.
** ReverseCerebusSyndrome: However, now the story seems to be reverting back to it's old, silly ways with little care towards characterization (what with Rose randomly speaking in Austrailian dialect), but the plot's still complicated. And dark.
* ChekhovsGun:
** [[spoiler:The yellow ship John and Jade ride on. It is later used as Stan's battle field during the first Fox Crew arc, and then sent to Troll Town by the Captain and ridden by the trolls from Troll Town to World 8. Its current wereabouts are unknown. It also reappears in Intermission Intermission, wherein there's a nuke Jade threatens to kill everybody with, and by an accident everyone dies. Whether or not there's actually a nuke on the real ship is unknown]].
** Early into [=IA2=], [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=60 Jade captchaloges a random vacuum cleaner.]] '''''Four hundred and seventy''''' [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=530 pages later...]][[labelnote:note]]The reason why Jude has one as well is because everything a person has in their sylladex is duplicated onto the sylladex of their Inward Journey counterpart.[[/labelnote]]
** [[spoiler:John fainting at the thought of Rose becomes important as Roxy uses this within a dream to get a look at his medical records]].
* ChekhovsGunman: The entire cast except for John and Jade.[[labelnote:*]]Well, maybe not the ''entire'' cast, but the only exceptions are ''extremely'' minor characters. Death Mecha, for one, had a pretty straightforeward role in the story. (Albeit one with a perspective switch between his first two appearnaces.) And that demon guard in Red Hell doesn't seem to have potential for a re-appearance anytime soon.[[/labelnote]] But Pikmin Fan admitted that this isn't from being planned ''as much'' as legitimatly not finding a good spot to bring closure to a character's arc until much later. But even with that, there are some notable examples:
** In Intermission Act One, Hank Hill seems to be a one shot side character used for the sake of a joke. Then he kills Vriska's doctor, and is revealed to be the leader of the {{Fox}} Crew with said doctor actually being a part of a rival group of Felt expies, the Millennium. The Millennium also contains the comic's BigBad. [[spoiler:And no, it isn't the Lord English stand-in]].
** John's inner female self, and inner selves in general for that matter.
* ColorCodedCharacters:
** Dream selves taken outside of dreams normally have a pale tinge to them. And if [[Webcomic/ProblemSleuth Temporal Replicsimile]] is used, the same color-coding key from PS applies: Green is the copy that goes in the past, red is the copy that goes in the future.
** The Hydra's heads.
** This is the reason why Link-Dirk is in a blue tunic instead of the trademark green: To prevent the color color from being too similar to either Good Yoshi's or Luigi-Jade's.

* AnyoneCanDie: As of March 17th (2013, that is), nobody is truely safe except for the titular characters and their evil twins. [[spoiler:The trolls have ''finally'' begun dying off, starting with Aradia, then Aranea is essentially dead after engaging Slender Mode. The death count so far includes the aformentioned Aradia, Aranea, and Rufioh, plus Terezi, Gamzee, Sollux, and Meenah. And the Terezi's [[GenreSavvy predictions]] is that several more trolls are going to die too]].
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: In [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=2053 this]] page, when Kanaya is listing off Jade's flaws:
-->GA: Like Your Opinion Dictatorship Over Your Group\\
GA: Your Neglect To Have Any Empathy Towards Others If They Dont Have Black Hair And Glasses And Even Then Its Iffy\\
GA: You Claiming Youre A Lesbian When You Are Really Bisexual If That\\
GA: [[spoiler:Your Bullying Dave Being THE FUCKING CAUSE OF ALL OF OUR PROBLEMS LATELY IN THE FIRST PLACE!!!!!]]\\
GA: And Your Unhealthy Obsession With Marge Simpson
* BigBallOfViolence: [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=1996 This]] panel, due to the animator's lazy-ness.
* BlackComedy: Showed up occasionally at first, then pretty much dominated the plot of Act Two Act Two. [[spoiler:One of John's longest best friends Dave has undergone a complete mental breakdown, and Rose, Roxy, ''and'' Dirk seem to be slipping with him. Dave is essentially commiting acts of terrorism by unleashing an army on a school, at least one member of which gets mauled to death by a dog from before. The only group of possible heroes, as everybody else is either dead, mind controlled, or evil from the start, is constantly mocked by one of their own members that repeatedly sexually harasses her own sister to the point of implied insanity. An alternate John has been brainwashed into Trickster Mode, and later on an alternate Jade suffered the same fate, neither of which have any signs of their warped thinking ending soon]]. All of this is PlayedForLaughs.
* BlackAndGrayMorality: Of all the ''Homestuck'' fancomics, this one uses this trope to an extent as of around Act Two Act Two (and, to a lesser extent, Act Two Intermission One.) And Act 2 Intermission 1 revealls that [[spoiler:Spongebob thinks that ''everyone'' except the titular characters and their "Evil Twins" are evil]].

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Act Three]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Unsorted]]

* {{Cosplay}}:
** Edith Quimby cosplays as who Rip "wants to cosplay as," which in turn resembles [[WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland Ezekiel's]] outfit but half blue and half yellow instead of green and teal. Edmund's outfit losley resembles Alucard's.
** Dave starts doing this a lot in Act Two. From AndrewHussie's sepulchritude outfit, to [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Sasuke's]] pre-time skip outfit + [[WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball Carrie's]] hairstyle, to Lord E-Bro's outfit in an alternate universe.
* CrackFic: It may be simpler, but it's arguably more confusing than ''Homestuck'' itself, due to the typoed (but still comprehensible) speech of most of the main characters, extremely frequent perspective switches and AnachronicOrder, and less concrete rules on reality in the universe. The fact that there are things you should be ''paying attention to'' makes it even worse, and the narrator frequently taunts you by asking if you remembered a certain character.
* CrackPairing: Invoked. There are several ''bizzare'' ships in this, such as Karkat/Equius and Terezi/Feferi. And then there's teased Jade/Kanaya, Jake/Terezi, Jake/Feferi, and Dave/Roxy (Roxy is ''[[ParentalIncest his biological mother]]'' in canon, but not in SJAHJ) The ones that do not involve the kids are weirder, such as [[WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow Cleveland Brown]]/[[Manga/{{Hellsing}} Tubalcain Alhambra]]. ([[spoiler:But they break up over ''Series/DoctorWho''.]])
* {{Crossover}}: As a fan fic, even moreso than ''Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals''. Although most of it is part of the Mario game.
** In a memo, sporesInfection from ''Onionstuck'' makes a brief appearance before Pikmin Fan himself comes in and bans him.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: The Captain. He acts like a complete idiot until one of the people who ranks below him starts attempting to murder several trolls.
* CurbStompBattle: The [[spoiler:first]] battle against The Evil just consists of a two-panel gif of John and Jade attacking him. [[spoiler:He escapes with low health, and fuses with a shipperworm and the Chinese Food Black Hole. But that form is killed off by Good Yoshi, transforming him into Boshi, making it another curb-stomp.]]
* CutAndPasteComic: It had been using sprites taken directly from ''Homestuck'', but use of them has been slowly tonning down. Of note, Karkat's one pose during an argument between him, Elitaa, Terezi, Feferi, and Eridan is repeatedly copy-pasted into other panels where he's really angry. [[spoiler:As a joke, this is also the image representing him when he dies.]] This trope is '''''especially''''' used in the parts involving the Fox Crew/Millennium. It was even worse during the part before the author actually drew sprites for them, since images were straight up ripped from Google, ''Webcomic/SherlokHolms'' style.
* DarkSkinnedBlonde: Rose and Roxy are revealed to be this towards the end of their portion at the beginning of Intermission Act 4.
* ADayInTheLimelight: "Sweet TROLLS and Hella MORE TROLLS." And "Sweet Rose and Hella Dave." Well, the latter only applied to before Act Two, where Dave, Rose, Roxy, and Dirk take up much more major roles in the story. There's also "Sweet Jake and Hella Jane," and the Trifold Battles and Act Two Act Two Intermissions.
* DeconstructiveParody: Intermission Act 3 (and John's encounter of his inner female self a little bit before) is for the most part this in regards to [[ScrewYourself selfcest]].
* DemotedToExtra:
** Pretty much every troll except Nepeta. WordOfGod stated that he even hates writting for them because he can't come up with anything for them that isn't walls of hemospectrum=racist, romance discussions, and plot exposition. Notably, Vriska, opposite of Nepeta, turns from one of the most important characters in ''Homestuck'' who deliberatly tries to force herself into the plot into an [[MyNameIsEarl Earl]] expy early on in the comic. [[RuleOfFunny This was intentional.]] Lamshaded in the Shipping Intermission when Tavros asks Vriska what the last big plan she had was. She answers with a long pause, followed by a "fuck you."
** Rose, Roxy, Dave, and arguably Dirk. (The "arguably" meaning that he actually joins John's group for most of Intermission Act Two, but [[LivingProp he doesn't do anything]] until after he separated himself from the group to look for rupees.) It's also heavily implied that the lines on the "==>" arrows stand for John, Jade, Jane, and Jake, and not any of the blondes. The reason for this being that dashes and equals are added once a gender flipped counterpart is made, including counterparts to Jane and Jake. Thankfully, this only seems to apply for the first three Intermission Acts; from [=IA4=] onwards, they get a lot more focus.
** Within the fan fic, Elitaa and possibly Puerco. Elitaa was at first ''quite'' the spotlight taker and her introduction and surrounding initial mysteries heavily took up most of ''Sweet TROLLS and Hella MORE TROLLS''. There was even a segment where she wandered around the yellow ship and looked at what all of the trolls there were doing; unfortunatly, nobody suggested, so that didn't go anywhere. She's now a LivingProp who hasn't made a physical, non-cameo appearance in over several hundred pages, and never really contributed to the plot. (Everything she did was tied directly with another character, such as destroying the T-800s with Eridan.) The "possibly" for Puerco is only because she was almost never important at all and is one of the few characters who didn't actually contribute anything to the story.
* '''DesignatedProtagonistSyndrome''': Invoked and very often lampshaded with the Blue and Yellow Team. John and Jade have done very little in the beginning that actually affected the main Fox Crew/Millennium rivalry; most of the Millennium members have been killed off by a third party, and the main characters never actually fought a member of the Fox Crew. Jane and Jake slip into this during Intermission Act Three, where this trope is in full force: Like most of the series up to this point (though from the alchemy arc onwards they finally start breaking free from this), John, Jade, Jane, and Jake have only been blindly following other people's commands, in this case the inward journey, while other, more interesting events are occuring like wars. In fact, in Act Two Act Two Roxy flat-out ''taunts'' the B&YT for being useless to what is going on.
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu Jade and Jude vs. Lord Major Quimby. They shoot him a little, causing him to back off and time/space travel out of there. Outside of context, this doesn't sound impressive... except that this is the ectobiological son of ''[[Manga/{{Hellsing}} Alucard]]'' we're talking about here.
* DistressedDamsel: The Pincess [sic].
* DiscOneFinalBoss: [[spoiler:Lord Major Quimby. In spite of filling in the "place" of Lord English, he's not the BigBad or even a remotley big villain from the perspective of the heroes. To add insult to injury, his death is extemely anticlimatic and ''one of the weakest members of the Millennium manage to kill the two that killed him'']].
* DivergentCharacterEvolution: John and Jade. In the beginning, the only real personalities given to them was that Jade was the more savvy expositor while John just listened, and he seemed to be a little bit dumber. The only hint of Jade's pervertedness was her owning a softcore porn magazine. Intermission Act 2 did not actually focus on her as much as John, or the other non-troll characters for that matter, and John stayed static throughout most of the act. It wasn't until Intermission Act Three where's Jade's "gangsta" personality really kicked in; and in fact that subact really focused on the main heroes of the adventure and was the first time Jane and Jake got some actual characterization beyond being John's rivals.
* DivideByZero: In a scene based off of the episode-naming situation in "[[Series/TheBigBangTheory the Dumpling Paradox]]," Roxy leaves the group of 32[[labelnote:Context]]No, this isn't the combined group of the 24 trolls and 8 kids. While fantroll Elitaa is included here, the missing slots of Sollux, Nepeta, Dave, and the A1 trolls is filled with nine Nepeta bloodswaps and five copies of some of the human kids.[[/labelnote]] in the Chinese restaraunt, meaning that there are no longer groups of four that they can evenly divide the food on. The result? All of the un-eaten Chinese food globs together and turns into a black hole that consumes the entire restaraunt.
* DoorStopper: It officially out-updated ''Homestuck'' in terms of pages per the first year early in January. It's now longer than the first three MS Paint Adventures AND ''Homestuck'' Beta combined, and is approaching the length of all of Act 5 of ''Homestuck''. It's being implied that the adventure is close to ending, but still. There is an option to skip the first thousand+ pages. Act Two Act Two alone is implied from author's notes to be the comic's longest subact, at over six hundred pages, passing through ''two'' seperate 500 panel filler celebration comics.
* TheDragon: Three examples: Omega Drew Pickles to Lord Major Quimby, Captain to Rip, and [[spoiler:Rose to Dave]].
* EarlyBirdCameo: SJAHJ is essentially one long ad for Great Pikmin Fan's future fan fics.
** One of the movies available for viewing at World 7 was "Onionstuck," however the option was struck out because it wasn't out yet. Not too long after, the actual fan adventure ''Onionstuck'' was out on the forums.
** [[spoiler:A future duoiligy of John/Jade and Dave/Rose fan fics has been hinted at in this, both times through Spongebob; ''Temples'', the John/Jade fan fic, had its premise hinted at during the part where Spongebob sends John a fan fic called "Eerie Temple," with the plot about John and Jade "exploring buildings." ''Attack of the Killer Time Beetles!'' the Dave/Rose fan fic, had been hinted at in the synopsis for the Spongebobfic with a title mentioning them]].
** Jade links to a ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' video after [[spoiler:saying that her love confession to Kanaya was just a prank]], to tell everyone that they just got trolled. This happened around a week after Pikmin Fan confirmed the next SBIG fan fic will be one of said show. Later on, the narrator admitted to having a crush on Nicole, from the same show. More amusingly, the character featured in that video in question is who Dave sorta-ends up dressing like (likley a coincidence in-universe).
** In the BadFuture, Dave's Lord E-Bro shirt reads "496" instead of Eddy's brother's "62." ''496 Reasons Why Multidating is More Complicated than it Seems'' would be made by the author.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The beginning of the story is quite different compared to what it has became. The first intermission act and the first chunk of the second focus a lot more on randomness for humor, with very little of the actions actually coming up again. Around the very first character select to Sweet TROLLS and Hella MORE TROLLS, the plot becomes a lot more structured and the adventure, as hard as it may be to belive, takes itself a little more seriously [[ChekhovsGun and events and characters from before starts becoming relevant]]. However, around the boss fight of Intermission Act Three, the adventure reverts back towards comedy and keeps up the hijinks, albeit keeping the plot organized. Even the formatting is different now: With the command arrows since becoming longer during Intermission Acts 3 and 4 and Act 2 Act 2 as alter-egos to John/Jade/Jane/Jake are added (though this has since reverted) and the Mario Intermission actually ''ending'' at one point -- eliminating the "[I]" tags that are on over 900 pages, plus Jade's cheat code that makes it so that commands don't refer to characters by initials anymore, it could be easy for one who hasn't gotten up to [=IA3=] yet to look at the "latest commands" on the mirror and think that pages of another adventure were accidentally uploaded instead of this.
* EasilyForgiven: Edmund's first conversation is him chewing out Elitaa for trying to "replace" him and Edith.[[labelnote:For reffrence]]This was before the reveal that the uracil characters were not trolls, but cherubs in canon. GPF decided to make them Simpsonians in SJAHJ; creatures that resemble ''Simpsons'' characters.[[/labelnote]] Elitaa says she's trying to replace Karkat instead. Edmund answers with "o ok then" and immediatley leaves.
* EasterEgg: In [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=809 one page]], Karkat shouts what seems like gibberish on the first line. [[spoiler:If you run it through [=ROT13=], it becomes a message that reveals the third elimination of one of the author's competition fan fics, ''[[FanFic/TotalZeksmitSeries Total Zeksmit Plains]]''. Before the chapter with that particular elimination was published.[[labelnote:Note]]The exact message, when translated, is "BRIDGETTEWILLBEVOTEDOFFTHIRDINTFSP," or "Bridgette will the voted off third in TFSP." TFSP standing for "Total ''Fan Service'' Plains, the old title of the fan fic.[[/labelnote]]]]
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Darkhorse is a parody/in-universe example. He's the only member of the Millennium Hank Hill actually likes. [[spoiler:And, of course, he gets killed off three pages after his first appearance]].
* EpicFail: Karkat promises to direct Jade to a pipe leading to World 8-4 is she can help him get a rare card for a duel match. But it turns out, he sent her to the wrong pipe. A pipe which ''leads to the beginning of the game''. Jade... [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=209 isn't happy about that.]]
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Rip's first full appearance is her after she [[spoiler:blows up the Death Mecha]], which also may foreshadow [[spoiler:her increasing tendency to kill members of the Millennium, whom she ''used'' to work for]].
* [[EvenTheGuysWantHim Even the "Not Homosexual" Guys and Lesbians Want Him]]: Dave.
* EveryoneIsRelated: Sort of. Dave's father and Jade's mother were a wedded couple, before they each had their respective twin sets with their eventual partners. John's biological father is named Harl '''Makara''', which Gamzee points out several pages later that this was because Gamzee's ancestor somehow adopted him, and thanks to some obscure Alternian legal loophole Gamzee can act as a guardian figure to John.
* EvilTwin: All of the human and troll kids who were post-scratch players in canon are seen as this, whereas their pre-scratch counterparts are the "good twins." A conversation between Dave and Aranea reveals that what denotes as being "good" or "evil" depends on what type of magic they are naturally good with. Also, Yoshi has one, which actually stemmed out from a suggestion that was supposed to compromise with there only being one Yoshi but two kids to ride him.
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: ''Boobs'' magazines and their SpearCounterpart ''Penis''.
* ExcusePlot: The entire series of events is set off just because John, one day, randomly declares "fuck, let's be... MARIO AND LUIGI."
* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler:Dirk may provide the dumbest example in all of media. He joins the villains' (well, one group of villains, that is) side just because Roxy offered him cookies]].
* FailOSuckyName: The nicknames for the ancestors. Especially Sleepy Dogwoman and [=Reddy McCoolshades=].
* FanFic: [[spoiler:The Shipping Intermission is revealed to be a fan fiction... by SpongebobSquarepants. Who is wearing shades. Which arguably raises more questions]].
* {{Fanon}}: Invoked. [[spoiler:Trickster Jade's design is based on a pixel by Feastings. The same pixel was used in-comic for the panel marking her first clear appearance.]] Other than that, however, ''Sweet Jade and Hella John'' may be the ultimate anti-fandom-meme comic, flat out defying or even criticising at points jokes that are commonly shared within the fandom and ''annihilating'' popular couples.
* FantasticRacism: Apart from the whole hemospectrum thing (which GPF admits that he actually hates writting), Karkat is against troll/human dating to the extent that [[spoiler:he completely breaks up with Nepeta over it and ends their friendship, or at least what could be considered friendship.]] And then there's Jade's conversation with UU/Edith:
-->GG: wait wait wait can this be avoided????\\
GG: i dont wanna live with a bunch of simpsons charcters if theyre gonna be dull and personalityless and theyre not marge!!!!!\\
GG: o yeah and i dont want all humans ded too\\
UU: ...\\
UU: that almoUst soUnds rasist.
: :[[spoiler:Darkhorse hates trolls. All trolls in general. John thinks it's racist]].
* FiveBadBand: [[spoiler:The Red and Red Team]].
** BigBad: [[spoiler:Dave]].
** TheDragon: [[spoiler:Rose]].
** TheBrute: [[spoiler:Roxy]], by far one of the deadliest and most active and mobile members, currently in possesion of all seven Millennium jujus.
** TheEvilGenius: [[spoiler:Auto Responder]].
** TheDarkChick: [[spoiler:Dirk]].
* FiveManBand: At first, it was just John, Jade, and later Good Yoshi. Intermission Act 2 changed their team around often (dropping Good Yoshi for Jade and FIRE John, for one). However, as of Act Two Act Two, they seem to have finally settled onto this:
** TheHero: John.
** TheLancer: Jade.
** TheBigGuy: Fire John, Jane with her Crocker Blade.
** TheSmartGuy: Possibly the counterparts (yes, all four of them), especially due to them getting more information pestered to them than their originals.
** TheLoad: Jake.
** TheSixthRanger: Dirk (throughout the adventure; ever since [=IA2=]; [[spoiler:then Roxy convinced him to turn evil]]), Rose, Dave, Roxy ([[spoiler:before all three of them became evil]]), and the trolls.
* FiveTokenBand: Ethnicities have been hinted at here and there, or outright revealed in the very rare "in color" pages, but Spongebob's Shipping Grid provides a handy image: [[http://i.imgur.com/ZGCN1.png The Striders are blondes with the same pinkish skin color used for Hank Hill (and most Millennium members), the Lalondes are black blondes, the Egberts are Latino, and the Harleys have the same skin tone as the Striders, but with the same hair color as Rip.]]
* ForegoneConclusion: Happens a lot.
** In Intermission Act Four, when one of Dave's dreamselves finally meets up with Rose and Roxy, Roxy teases that she will try to steal one of the four quest gatorade containers and force Dave to drink it, making a female version of himself that Roxy presumes Jade will fall in love with. Given that Intermission Act Three was ''all'' about John, Jade, Jane, and Jake on thier inward journey and each of them drank their gatorade, "Dame Strider" never came to be. The funny thing is, given Dave's ability to charm anyone regardless of sexuality, that wasn't even really necessary.
** When Darkhorse is ''finally'' elaborated on, pretty much everything else about him had been revealed through snippets, including his death. This means that his creation was the absolute ''last'' thing we find out about him. Shorlt after such, the narrator recaps his entire story.
* {{Flanderization}}: Jade, Karkat, and Roxy got hit with this pretty badly. The former got more perverted as the series went on (she was originally surprised at a misunderstanding comment; now she outright tries to make out with her "[[OppositeSexClone sister]][[BrotherSisterIncest brother]]" and jokes about her parents sex life), and the latter two got more and more focused on ships. Although Roxy's had been RetCon[=ned=] with the reveal that [[spoiler:she had been infected with a "shipper worm" that Cerulean Nepeta knocks out of her shortly after... and now it's been changed right back again and Roxy is still a sociopath.]]
* {{Foreshadowing}}:
** [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=410 In the Shipping Intermission,]] [[spoiler:Vriska asks Jade if she's going to nuke everybody. Her responce? "not yet." Granted, she doesn't do the nuking, but still.]] The Shipping Intermission in general is basically just one big foreshadowing of events in future subacts, and was what retroactivley determined Jade, Jane, and Jake's supposed patron trolls. ([[spoiler:Kanaya, Equius (originally Elitaa while Equius replaces Nepeta for John's), and Feferi respectivley.]])
** Dirk saying that the conflict between John and Dave is like that between [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Naruto and Saskue]], but with the hair colors flipped.
* FourLinesAllWaiting: Several instances in Intermission Act 2. It's gotten to the extent that Good Yoshi, previously a semi-regular, had vanished for over a hundred pages before John and Jean ''finally'' hear of him again. Intermission Act 3 attempts to avoid the "all waiting" part by having a heavy focus on the kids playing as Mario brothers, but at a cost most of the other plots run even slower.
* FreakOut: Dave's reaction to [[spoiler:seeing his dead dad's corpse and Rose and Roxy's mother's corpse in Rip's coffin]]. Notably the first time he really freaked out like this in the fan fic.
* FromBadToWorse: The entire adventure itself. While it's never meant to be taken seriously (especially given the sheer ammount of self-deprecation humor and lampshade hanging), the beginning was completely lighthearted. The second half of the Mario Intermission onwards features things such as [[spoiler:Rip showing Dave a pair of corpses (but it's NightmareRetardant due to the art style), ''one of them being his own dad's corpse''; main characters dying and being teased ''for a long time'' to be completely unambiguously dead; and more and more characters turning out to be a part of an evil plan]]. And now there's things such as Aranea bragging about the comic's death count. [[spoiler:And being ''responsible'' for a good chunk of the death count, especially in regards to the trolls.]]
** The Shipping Intermission. It starts out... [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=383 bizzare]], but harmless. Then Dave gets into a fight with Dirk's Auto Responder. [[spoiler:And then the deaths start happening. More (of the evil twin/post-scratch) trolls are permenantly killed off than in ''Homestuck'' canon so far, and two of the humans die as well. And that's ''before'' the nuke hits and kills everyone else off, including the previously unseen good twin trolls.]]
* FullFrontalAssault: One of the films in the Ice World's dating theater is about a man robbing a bank naked. And ''another'' is about a nude woman ghost/monster thing who is supposedly invincible. They later get brought to life and play this trope in a greater effect, along with Homer Simpson who decides to go naked because he noticed everyone else in the little group at the time was naked.
* GagBoobs: Jane and Jean are both implied to have "freakishly large boobs," although this isn't visible from the typical sprite style of the characters. Anything implying breasts rarley show up in "hero mode" poses, and even then it doesn't look that freakish. Appearanty "freakishly large" is shown by (or just means) the character having them period, since no other character aside from Dottie and the Curser Woman (who are both supposed to be naked) is drawn with breasts. The Trip Intermission [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=1057 shows]] that Jean's breasts are ''sagging''. (Link SFW.) ''At the age of '''12'''''.
* GambitPileup: Oh, yes. WordOfGod has said that this comic can be described as a three-person chess game between Dave, Nepeta, and Rip. A '''''COMPLICATED''''' three-person chess game, as demonstraited by him linking to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nsaAkNXAzak this]] video.
* TheGamePlaysYou: The Mario session averts this when it comes to the main people playing it, but for the trolls in Troll Town, their houses are pretty much forced to be warped into the game world. Granted, it's easy to take a pipe into 1-1 and leave, but still. Eridan actually gets fed up with it to the point that he sends Dave a large (literally) "fuck you."
* GenderBlenderName: "Joan." Worse, it's actually a [[{{Fanon}} commonly-used name for a genderbent]] ''John'', not Jane. [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=556 The angroginy is pointed out in the narration:]]
-->(Wait isn't joan a girls name?)
* TheGhost: [[RealLifeWritesTheplot Due to not being seen in the comic outside of sillouette at the time of writting several pages of the story]], the "good twin" trolls aside from Aranea and Meenah have not been seen for some time. They haven't even been involved in pesterlogs due to their quirks not being revealed back then, until they became necessary to the plot, wherein Damara's has been guessed. (The irony is that Pikmin Fan's guess of her personality was not too far from how it actually turned out.) Elitaa's hasn't either, but she has no real excuse due to being an original character.
* GISSyndrome: Like its inspiration.
* {{God}}: It turns out that the Gods of this multiverse are [[spoiler:Ed, Edd, and Eddy]].
* GoodBadBugs: In-universe. The Mario game has a few, which are exploited by the characters. Such as the backwards long jump being possible again. It's implied that these are only in the beta.
* GratuitousSpanish: Occasionally, both said by the characters and written in the captions/panels.
* GroinAttack: [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=368 Actually happens to a girl first.]] [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=487 And then another girl.]] [[http://mspfanventures.com/?adv=588&id=595 And then another.]] Finally used on a guy with [[http://mspfanventures.com/?adv=588&id=1224 Jack]]:
-->"Ow! Right between the dick!" [sic]
* HalfTheManHeUsedToBe: How [[spoiler:Vriska, Tavros, and Karkat die in the Shipping Intermission]]. Also Cleveland slices Zorin in half with her own scythe. Jaka slices Zorin in half ''again'' after she is brought back to life by Jan, except this time it's horizontally instead of vertically. [[spoiler:Karkat's "main" instance is ripped in half post-death by Vampire Jade]].
* HandOrObjectUnderwear: At one point, Homer Simpson (who is giant and naked) covers his crotch with Jade and Jake's bedroom. Unfortunatley, the window is right over his crotch, giving everyone in the room [[CensorBox but the viewers]] a full view.
* HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday: "i am not a homosexual" is appearantly John's ''catchphrase'' in the fan comic, although within the comic itself he hardly uses it.
* HiveMind: Outside of biology, assigned color, and having knowledge of the inward journey area layout, there are no initial differences between the kids and their gender reversed counterparts, leading to moments such as them typing the same thing on a memo. No, a kid never actually had a pesterchum conversation with their own counterpart (though Jean did contact John to send him the files Spongebob sent her). This amusingly did not happen between the two Johns created after the Robosanta battle, but that's presumably because one of them got the fire flower before meeting the other.
* IHatePastMe:
** Future John outright attempts to troll his past self and his copies, but then Jade from the same point in time bans him from the memo they were in and slaps him.
** [[spoiler:Dave's dreamselves made before his freakout ''really'' don't take a liking to his current self]].
* AnIcePerson: Both the [[VideoGame/PaperMario Crystal King]] and the [[WesternAnimation/AdventureTime Ice King]] appear. [[spoiler:The former kills the latter, however]]. Then there's ICE Jade, and [[spoiler:Johnsprite was becoming this due to being prototyped with the Ice King's crown but fixed it by Tricksterizing]].
* InSeriesNickname: When the Blue and Yellow team forms, Jade gives out nicknames to the twelve people present at the time. She then expands on this to everybody else:
** John: The Courage.
** Jade: The Badass Lesbian.
** Jane: The Girl Who Does Nothing but Baking.
** Jake: The Fan Service.
** Jean: The Wisdom.
** Jude: The Badass Crossdresser. (Joan, for some reason, does not get a title similar to this, but instead...)
** Joan: The Male [=PMSer=].
** Jaka: The Fan Service but with a Vagina Instead of a Penis.
** Fire John: The Fire Guy.
** Ice Jade: The Ice Girl.
** Vampire Jade: The Bloodsucker.
** Zombie Jade: The Milksucker.
** [[spoiler:Trickster John]]: The Moron
** [[spoiler:Trickster Jade]]: the Suga Fuga
** Blue Demon Jade: The Object of Jake's Desires
** Jenn: The Mentalist
* HulkingOut: John and Jean after [[spoiler:reading Geromy's death]].
-->''[[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=867 A transformation starts to both of you.]]\\

You slip into the fabled reddeath trance of the raegnerds, quaking all the while in the hotbloodanger throes of the whiner tongues.

\\
You have officially been PISSED THE FUCK OFF.[[labelnote:*]]Also yu grow twice the size but it's not noticable here.[[/labelnote]]''
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Averted to hell and back with FIRE John. Having fire powers was pretty much the best thing to happen to him. Same with ICE Jade. And debatebly with Vampire Jade, Vampire Dave, or Vampire Rose.
* InterspeciesRomance: Played straight with John/Nepeta ([[spoiler:until they break up]]), Dirk/Sollux, and discussed several times. Karkat thinks troll/human is like bestiality and compares it to the relationship between [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006 Sonic and Ellise]]. Jude also jokeingly compares it to bestiality.
* {{Irony}}:
** In ''Homestuck'', 413 was the ArcNumber for the kids, while 612 was the Arc Number for the trolls. The update on the day 4/13 actually focused exclusivly on the trolls, whereas the 6/12 update (which was short because the author was away for most of the day) focused exclusivly on the kids. [[InvokedTrope GPF takes note of this and spends the next update -- which is supposed to be the "real" 6/12 update --]] making eight panels instead of the average-at-the-time four, '''''none''''' of them so much as ''mentioning'' any of the trolls.
** Karkat, who constantly opposes troll/human dating, turns out to be part-human through ectobiology. ''His head literally '''explodes''''' when he finds this out, though thankfully it was in a dream so his realself didn't get any harm from it.
* ItMakesSenseInContext: The entire comic, as surprising as it may seem. However in most cases "context" doesn't come in for a ''long'' time.
** "ok so i think the theory that the female jake created after drinking magical gatorade in the session of the immersive mario game will go back in time and become hank hill, who is aganst her sister but especally aa sexy vampire vversion of her that was created from a game constroct ffrom a ex-frend's comic conjured by a clone of my girlfriend in a moodflippout was jossed a fe pages after it was proposed."
* JawDrop: Roxy and Dirk after Jaka and Joan (respectivly) suddenly swoop them to them, kiss them, [[WrittenSoundEffect DOOF]] them to the ground, and have a four-way makeout session with their original versions.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Jade. It's ''very'' much hidden, but it's there. Notable example include an alternate universe version of her attempting to prototype Jane's dead boyfriend over her own, her "Main" universe self defending John from... [[IHatePastMe himself]], and trying to revive him when he gets killed by Robosanta.
* JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind: Dream related mechanics show up late into Intermission Act Two. For instance, Cerulean and Yellow Nepeta have the power to enter people's dreams. They even both give [[spoiler:Fire]] John an Film/{{Inception}} by giving him instructions to a back entrance in World 8-4 in a way that he will remember them. Take notes, because it only gets more confusing from there. An ''entire arc'' takes place within dreams, and not even within the same person's dreams at that.
* JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope: [[spoiler:Dave and Rose]].
* [[spoiler:KillEmAll: The Shipping Intermission ends with everyone getting nuked after a miscalculation. The events prior to the nuking weren't going too well either: Vriska, Tavros, Gamzee, Karkat, Terezi, Dave, Aradia, Rose, Sollux, and Eridan were all killed before the sea gets nuked.]]
* KarmaHoudini: Jade. She belittles, insults, and threats a majority of characters, [[BrutalHonesty and seems 100% sincere in everything]], yet barely gets any sort of commupance. Her actions have caused [[spoiler:Dave to completely break mentally, which leads to many of the bad things that have happened over the course of the series]]. Characters do notice how terrible she is, but this usually results in them trying to kill her, [[spoiler:only to die instead. Jaka lampshades this]].
* TheyKilledKennyAgain: Jade has died '''[[spoiler:FOUR]] TIMES''' over the course of the story, and always came back. All of which are due to her 7up.
* KilledOffForReal: Most of the characters who died post-Mario Intermission. Specifically: [[spoiler:So far the entire Fox Crew bar Dottie, the entire Millennium bar Rip and Captain, every troll that isn't a Leijon or Aranea, Roxy, Dirk, both Simpsonians, every major carapace, and the entire Revenge Five (who amusingly didn't start dying off until Intermission Intermission 2, right after the "main" Mario Intermission)]].
* KudzuPlot: It's one of those stories where a ''broken window'' leads to [[spoiler:an evil baby doll head being created by the window's owner convincing a stoner clown troll into using his powers into making it, followed by the head starting a small army, one of the army members of which will then be used to ectobiologically create one of the main enemies of the window owner.]]
* LampshadeHanging: In case the title wasn't a big enough clue, this is ''not'' a fan fic that takes itself seriously.
* LaserGuidedKarma: In a way. Ever since late into Intermission Act 3, Jade has been periodically hitting on Jaka, who is pretty much her sister. Jaka naturally reacts negatively to this and is understandably creeped out. (The fact that it's ''[[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Jade]]'' makes it worse.) After the Trifold Battles arcs, Jake, her brother in this universe, randomly confesses love for her. Jade is absolutley stunned and can only answer with nervous silence.
-->Jade (thinking): oh god its not as fun when YOURE the sibling being hit on.....
* LateArrivalSpoiler: Several spoilers for ''Homestuck'' are given away without much warning, so it's strongly advized to read through just about '''''all''''' of ''Homestuck'' before getting into ''Sweet Jade and Hella John''. For instance, the very first command given in SJAHJ is basically what John and Jade were doing by the end of Act ''Five''.
** Not exactly ''Homestuck'' related: ''Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals''[='=]s first AN warns that it will give away a [[TheButlerDidIt certain spoiler]] in chapter 4. ([[spoiler:Namely, Walter is a traitor.]]) SJAHJ, however, reveals this exact same certain spoiler casually once the Fox Crew's hit list was seen. While [[spoiler:Walter]] is drawn in such a manner that [[spoiler:he could resemble Rip, who wasn't on the list at first]], the description pretty much reveals it further.
** Segments involving Dave during Intermission Act 4 have been revealing or implying certain events of the ''Total Drama'' series. The narration cuts itself off before revealing one [[YourCheatingHeart particularly]] [[EliminationHoudini controversial]] [[ShipSinking twist]] in the third season, ([[spoiler:Duncan returning and kissing Gwen]]) but then the command to a later page pretty much reveals this:
-->[I] DS: Pull a Duncan from ''Total Drama'' and [[spoiler:unexpectedly come out of nowhere to hog up the spotlight yet again. Also, pull a Duncan in that you ignite a really shitty, overdone love n-drangle debate shortly after your appearance.]]
:: : And ''then'' there's the whole "heather to my alejandro" comparason, whatever that would mean.
** The premise to Spongebob's final fan fic, when the title is taken into consideration, spoils one of the plot points of ''Housestuck Hurrcain Crconikals''. Another one seems to spoil the ending of said fic.
* Laws of Gender Bending: It's not ''traditional'' gender bending so much as it is OppositeSexClone creation, but from the counterparts' point of view it is.
** FirstLawOfGenderBending: Played straight and inverted. Two guys and two girls each get a genderbended counterpart, and the female-to-male ones seem no less "permenant" than the male-to-female ones.
** SecondLawOfGenderBending: True for Jaka, not as much for the other three. (They hate it at first to varying levels. Joan, who freaks out about it the most, is the first and currently only one who was upset to get over it.)
** ThirdLawOfGenderBending: Averted with all of the actual counterparts, arguably played straight with John's "inner female self".
* LazyArtist: Most of the time. Animation either happens off screen or -- from around Intermission Act 3 onwards -- achieved by copy-pasting part of the image and moving it to a different spot.
* LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt:
** [[invoked]]Lampshaded at the end of Act 2 Act 1. [[spoiler:Rose is stabbed with Kanaya's chainsaw, and underneath her "DEAD" caption there's a "for now..." And unsurprisingly, she does not die completely]].
** [[spoiler:Then averted with the same character, who has gotten a mortal injury. Her sister and Dirk have also both died]].
* LivingProp: The trolls, [[EnsembleDarkhorse of all people]], are made into this during [=IA4=]. To cement this, there's even panels where they appear in the foreground but don't actually say anything on the respective page, appearantly just to remind the readers that they were still there. Elitaa got this the worst, which is ironic since she was supposed to be a borderline ParodySue. Later onto Act Two Act Two, and Aranea is now pretty much the only remotley important non-Leijon troll in the cast, with the rest being [[spoiler:her pawns to serving the Millennium]].
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: So there's eight kids, four gender flipped counterparts to half of the kids, one copy of one of the kids with fire powers, God-knows-how-many copies of another one of the kids, twenty six "regular" troll kids, twelve ectoclones of one of the trolls, four "major" members of the Fox Crew, twelve "side" members of the same group, the Revenge Five, seventeen members of the Millennium, two Simpsonians UU and uu(/Edith and Edmund Quimby), eight human ancestors, thirteen troll ancestors, odd ones out Good Yoshi and Spongebob, and countless parts of the Mario game such as The Evil, The Princess, and the other seven world bosses. The comic started out with just John, Jade, Good Yoshi, and a cameo by Hank Hill, but in Intermission Act 2 the cast exploded, and it exploded again in Intermission Act 4 onwards.
* LukeIAmYourFather: [[spoiler:Dave and Karkat/Kankri are half-ectosiblings thanks to Nepeta]]. Also, while on meth, Roxy [[spoiler:encounters a John that is slightly more similar to canon John. He says that he and Jade are related. Since they aren't in ''this'', the quote makes Roxy freak out]].
* MassiveNumberedSiblings[=/=]TangledFamilyTree: As of now, there are five Egbert kids (seven if you count [[spoiler:Trickster John]] and "Jenn") and nine Harley kids, with a possible tenth if the red demon Jade seen twice is actually from the same universe. The real kicker? Each of those kid sets were born '''''as one person''''' (aside from maybe Red Demon Jade), which split into good/evil twin pairs thanks to Rip, which split even more throughout the adventure and is showing no signs of stopping. Let's not even get started on how Nepeta has twelve clones, each with a different ecto/hemoparent.
* MesACrowd: Use 1-ups right, and you'll end up cloning yourself. Which is done accidentally to John. One of the Johns gets a fire flower and becomes FIRE John Egbert, avoiding confusion unless he loses the powerup. He doesn't lose it in the course of the session, but afterwards he switches his outfit, along with ICE Jade, who was made under a very similar situation.
* MindScrewdriver: There are several explanations of almost everything in this story.
** Intermission Act Three begins with Jade reading a GameFAQS entry written by the author in conherant text, explaining the mechanics of the game a little.
** A few pages after, GPF (the author, not the avatar) ''actually draws a map'' of the inward journey area to show exactly how it works.
** [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=746 [I] GPF: Recap.]] There's supposed to be a second one for Intermission Act Four and the Trip Intermission, but that one is still under construction. There's also ''another'' unfinished recap, this one spanning from the beginning of Act Two to just before the war arc.
** The [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=773 explaination of dream mechanics.]]
** [[http://mspfanventures.com/?adv=588&id=847 "This is getting kind of confusing..."]]
* MixAndMatchCritters: Darkhorse is half skeleton monster, half horse.
* MonsterMash: The very group of protagonists eventually grows into this. The Blue and Yellow Team consists of eight "normal" humans, a human with pyrokinesis, a human with cyrokinesis, a vampire, a zombie, a water demon, two [[spoiler:saccharide and vaugley angelic beings]], and a ghost that used to be part of one of the human's mind. Similarly, the Millennium consists of several vampires, an illusionist witch, a quantum catboy, a vampire who is a borderline EldritchAbomination, a werewolf, a [[spoiler:cyborg]], a mad scientist, a ''hydra'', a ghost made out of water, a giant mecha, and a centaur with a skeleton half replacing the human half.
* MoodWhiplash: Spongebob's [[spoiler:last words towards Jean]] is one of the few moments in the comic that can be considered genuinley sad/heartwarming, depending on who you ask. The very next page is [[spoiler:Edmund asking Edith what the loud sound of Prospit's Moon crashing in the ocean was, with Edith reponding with a YourMom joke, using one of Dave's smilies from canon, and blocking him for no real reason]]. Of course before that Jean noticed the details about the Shipping Wall, leading to some really weird fourth wall joke.
* MoralityPet: John and Jane to Jade. And no, not in the moirail sense. Both of Jade's JerkWithAHeartOfGold examples listed above involve doing something good for them. The former of the two Morality Pets acts as a genuine friend to her and is one of the few people she ''doesn't'' personally insult regularly (playful teasing is fair game though) while the latter has, during a point early into April, started trying to snap Jade into being a proper human being.
* MotiveDecay: The Millennium are a group attempting to take over the economy in LawfulEvil methods, rather than a ChaoticEvil group of Neo-Nazis. The reason being was that Lord Major Quimby essentially broke into one of their meetings, kicked Major's ass, and took over while demoting Major to the Janitor.
* NeverLiveItDown: In-universe, Jade never forgives Karkat for accidentally directing her to the wrong warp pipe back in the Mario Session.
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: Dave parodies this [[spoiler:even before he turned evil, but ''especially'' after]].
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Hank Hill's revenge scheme for breaking his window [[spoiler:eventually bites him when a chain of events leads to Homer Simpson being made, who is then used to create Lord Major Quimby. You know, the guy Hank was after in the first place.]]
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: Waterwraith actually kills one of its own comerades.
* NoIndoorVoice: The Captain, along with speaking in all caps like he did in ''Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals'' (in spite of his rarley talking in canon), also speaks in rediculously large text. Although subverted when the Waterwraith tells him to quiet down. He does, but his text is still written in all caps, impling that he's still screaming, only not as loudly.
* NoNudityTaboo: Homer Simpson. (Don't ask.) Also the naked bank robber and the Curser Woman. For all three of them, this is PlayedForLaughs more than it is for fan service.
* NonIndicativeName: The Shipping Intermission has little to do with romance at all.
* {{Nosebleed}}: Happens to Jade towards the end of Intermission Act One, which leads to the separation arc of the duo in early Intermission Act Two. Oddly, this is one of the few points in the comic that human blood is drawn as dark red.
* NukeEm: [[spoiler:The ending to the Shipping Intermission.]]
* NotSoStoic:
** Twice near the end of Intermission Act Three. [[spoiler:Dirk becomes stunned to the point where he only 'says' ":O!!!!", and later on Dave's reaction to seeing his father and Rose and Roxy's mother's corpses as familiars in Rip's coffin.]]
** Dave in Act 2 in general. Although in context, ''this is not a good thing''.
* NumberOfTheBeast: 616 is a bit of an ArcNumber here.
** One notable example is that the version of the Mario game John and Jade are beta testing is V6.16, which is the reversion where the developers decided to try to make the game constructs be as life-like as possible. They succeeded. Too well.
** Page 616 was the reveal of the Crocker Blade. Page 666 was when [[spoiler:Stan and Peter died for the second time]].
* OffWithHisHead: Hank Hill decapitates Jan. And in the Shipping Intermission, [[spoiler:Eridan gets his head punched off by Equius]].
* OhCrapReaction: Dave's reaction when Terezi tells his future future dreamself that she's gallowsCalibrator.
* OnlySaneMan: Dave. Even the narration clears when he "be" him or "see" him.[[labelnote:Note]]The latter reffers to the narration around him, not whenever he is on screen.[[/labelnote]] Rip also continues playing this from ''Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals'', [[AxCrazy although "sane" might not be the proper word]].
* OnlySixFaces: Averted for the crossover characters across eachother; they are all drawn in a unique "default pose" with the exceptions of Peter and Cleveland (though that's possibly for TakeThat purposes at how the latter can be seen as an {{Expy}} for the former in canon). However, those sprites in question are used a good chunk of the time, but it's less noticable after the Mario Intermission as their subplot doesn't take up as much of the screen time.
* OppositeSexClone: John, Jade, Jane, and Jake each get one; in fact, most of Intermission Act 3 was about them going through their "inward journeys" (largly inspirted by the spirit quest in ''Problem Sleuth'') and creating them. Each of them also have had an issue once made:
** Jean (John's counterpart): Back-hurting breasts.
** Jude (Jade's counterpart): He thinks he can't make dirty jokes without getting away from it as easily.
** Joan (Jane's counterpart): He's the only one that actually doesn't like being in a new gender, period. Though at first it was just his hair before he realized his change.
** [[AwesomeMcCoolname Jaka]] (Jake's counterpart): She actually has no problem at all and even likes her new form. (The narrator at first says she has an issue with her name.)
* OurMonstersAreWeird: One of the bosses in the Mario game is made out of gold and dollar bills. Plus a diamond.
* OverlyLongGag: [[http://mspfanventures.com/?adv=588&id=1310 Kanaya listing why Nepeta is pretty much the only reasonable female romantic option for John.]] She leaves out the alter egos, but still.
* PaintingTheMedium:
** During the "Sweet TROLLS and Hella MORE TROLLS" segment, the arrows were turned into "============>" (which became "=============>" after the introduction of Elitaa). Also (forum only), the thread title always remained as STAHMT, with the subtitles still being added. This also applied for the beginning of Intermission Act Four and for the very brief Sweet Jake and Hella Jane segment.
*** After the introduction of each counterpart, the arrows change from "==>" to "=-=>," then to "===>," "-===>," and finally "====>." Fire John complained about not being represented, so it extended to "-====>." Then to "=====>" with Ice Jade. Then to "=====->" for Vampire Jade, post-[=A2I1=]. ''Then'' to "======>" after the reveal of [[spoiler:Trickster Jade]], "======->" with the reveal of Zombie Jade, "=======->" after counting Johnsprite and Jennsprite, and finally "========>" when [[spoiler:Trickster Jade]] created Blue Demon Jade. [[spoiler:Then Trickster John makes a bunch more alter egoes]] and the narrator gets fed up with arrows, going back to "==>" and it's implied to stay that way until Act 3.
** Mirror only: In most cases, the "hide" text for a spoiler is "CLOSE THIS SHIT." However, when we're as Dave or Rip narrates, "Hide X" is used instead.
*** During Kanaya's recap, "CLOSE THIS SHIT" was still used, only written in her quirk. It's written in John's quirk when he was explaining as to how he met Jade.
** The "Sweet Rose and Hella Dave" segment at the beginning of Intermission Act 4 reverts back to the old "==>" arrows, presumably standing for Rose, Roxy, Dave, and the Auto Responder. Also, at the beginning, the thread was titled "Sweet Rose and Hella Dave," and during the Rose and Roxy updates, it was retitled to "Sweet Rose and Hella Roxy," the updeats on Dave and AR's part being retitled "Sweet AR and Hella Dave."
** [[spoiler:When Jade gets killed by the Caliginous Miles, the title changes to "Hella John."]]
* PairTheSpares: Averted. This comic has Jane/Jake and Dave/Rose as couples, but not their "counterparts" Roxy/Dirk (much to Roxy's dismay) and John/Jade (much to Karkat's dismay, since he doesn't like how they keep hitting on trolls). And speaking of the trolls, only about half of them are in flushed relationships: Karkat/Equius, Terezi/Feferi, Gamzee/Aradia, and troll/human relation John/Nepeta.
* ParodySue:
** Nepeta.
** Averted with the Sinoises, who contrary to common MarySue OC stereotypes invoked in most parodies, are going to be so unimportant that they came painfully close to being some of the ''very few'' characters in the fan fic to never contribute anything at all to the plot. [[spoiler:Elitaa died offscreen]], and around the update where that spoiled action in question happened, Pikmin Fan flat-out confessed to not liking putting them in the story in the first place.
** [[invoked]] "Blue Demon Jade," an alter-ego of Jade spawned by [[spoiler:Trickster Jade]]. Specifically of the SympatheticSue varriety, and through playing the LastOfHisKind trope to rediculous levels.
** Dave's inner female self/Dove.
* PeekABangs: Dave's latest redesign has part of his hair covering one of his eyes. (It didn't at first until after the Forum Update Hiatus.) There is no reason at all for this other than him thinking it looks cool.
* PetTheDog: During WorldWarII, the Condecse was actually on the side of the Allies. [[spoiler:Although this was because Rip made it troublesome for her to take over Earth.]]
* PissTakeRap: Jade and Jude's "[[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=542 Marge Simpson]] [[GoingCommando goes commando]]" rap. Seriously, it rhymes "coitus" with "soy-miss." Also, [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=761 Kanaya's rap]]. Pretty much any rap is going to have really, ''really'' cheesy lyrics.
* PlatonicLifePartners: Appearantly John and Jade, but it's really ''much'' more complicated than that.
* {{Polyamory}}: Between Jane, Jake, and both of their OppositeSexClone[=s=].
* [[{{Prelap}} Postlap]]: The ending of Jade's ancestor story deals with [[spoiler:the deaths of Dave and Dirk's dad and Rose and Roxy's mom, with Jade saying that there's a rumor that some vampire stole their corpses. It then cuts to what's in Rip's coffin: said ancestors' dead bodies being controlled by Rip, with Jade still narrating that there isn't anything to proove this rumor.]]
* PornStash: Jade's ''Boobs'' magazines. She seems to have no problems with reading it in front of John, though. Jake also owns some magazines in this series, and during the Shipping Intermission, just about everyone accuses Jane of owning ''Boobs''[='=]s SpearCounterpart ''Penis''. [[http://mspfanventures.com/?adv=588&id=768 Roxy also owns several issues of]] ''Penis''.
* PutOnABus: ''Trol Seasson'' characters appear at times, only for both of them to "leave the story," meaning they're gone for good.
* RagtagBunchOfMisfits:
** Even though they consist of two sets of siblings, the core protagonist group as of Act Two (John, Jade, Jake, and Jane) is this. We have a movie fanboy who used to worship the person who became the main antagonist of the act; a perverted hipster who's in love with Marge Simpson and her own brother; an adventure loving dork who has a couple hitting on him; and a cake-baker with an OppositeSexClone that has anger issues.
** The Fow Crew, once all sixteen members of them have been revealed. They consist of a BadassNormal [[WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill propane sailsman, his three drinking buddies,]] [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy three]] [[WesternAnimation/AmericanDad household]] [[WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow husbands]] and their respective wifes, one of the family's dog, two of one of said husband's friends, one of another said husband's frend, a nudist friend, and a foul-mouth guy with an afro.
* RainbowSpeak:
** Parodied. So John and Jade have to kill "The Evil" (maroon, also written in comic sans), save "the Princess/Pincess" (magenta), and get "the kiss/the kisss" (blue) from her. Jade was told of this from a "helpful informant" (white). Also, later on we have a "kickass reward" (lime), AKA the chaos emeralds.
** Jean's exposition in Intermission Act Three to Jade avoids this, using underlining for important terms. Although this really serves as a ShoutOut to the early spritelogs with Nannasprite.
* RealLifeWritesThePlot: The reason for the "good twin" trolls aside from Aranea and Meenah appearing for so long. This includes Puerco, but for a different reason: Pikmin Fan admitted he simply hasn't drawn the sprite for yet. When the narration ''does'' truley focus on them as a group for the first time, only four of the five revealed are mentioned. (The fifth, Meenah, is screwing around in the Captor's house.)
* RedHerring:
** There are a few signs during [=IA3=] and a little of [=IA2=] that implied that Roxy has gone sober, became an expy of Sober Gamzee, and attempted to kill Rose. The first page showing them had Roxy in a tank aimed at Rose, [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=517 then where was a pesterlog where she typed in the exact same way Gamzee did]] (and she said OH WAIT shortly after mentioning that John must "marry a Rose"), and once Rose and Roxy are seen again, they have bad injuries. Injuries that even slightly resemble what canon Gamzee had after he used Nepeta's claws to scratch himself. Really now, it turned out that [[spoiler:the tank she had was only to uncover a treasure map, and the injuries came from a random dog attacking them while they were trying to get the key for a treasure chest. The pesterlog was just Roxy screwing around, plain and simple]]. What's more, the Shipping Intermission implied that [[spoiler:Sober Roxy in this fic is just a ''really'' shy geeky girl]]. However, in Act 2, [[spoiler:Roxy ''does'' seem to be verging on the mentally unstable side]].
** Implications that [[spoiler:Jaka is Hank Hill and Vampire Jade is Rip Van Winkle]]. Though this was not without warning the second the theory was proposed: John lampshaded how terrible both twists would be a few pages after the former is raised, and characters frequently comment on it. Now that Jaka and Vampire Jade have swapped their text colors back this theory is all but completely sunk.
* RedemptionEqualsSex: [[spoiler:Darkleer and the Dolorosa]].
* RedOniBlueOni: Several:
** John (red) to Jade (blue), up until the ending of [=IA2=]. After that, it mostly became Red Oni Who Sometimes Goes Blue (John), and Red''der'' Oni Who Almost Never Goes Blue (Jade).
** Jake (red) to Jane (blue). Their counterparts, interestingly, are switched.
** Hank (blue) to the other three major Fox Crew members (red).
** Captain (red) to Rip (blue), though during Intermission Act Four onwards it's the other way around.
** Quimby (red) to Omega Drew Pickles (blue).
** uu/Edmund (red) to UU/Edith (blue). This is even reflected in their ideal text colors.
** Roxy (red) to Rose (blue).
** Dave (red) to Dirk (blue).
* RetCon:
** Parodied with Jade's text color when playing as Luigi. It gets ret-conned back when she answers Rip for the first time in the adventure. Also happens when the author got the color of Tubalcain Alhambra's suit wrong.
** Pikmin Fan pretty much appoligizes for taking the ShipperOnDeck aspect of Roxy and exaggerating it to creepy extremes with the reveal that [[spoiler:she was infected by a "shipper worm"]]. And Kanaya's TotallyRadical personality is only while she's high. Still no excuse for Jade being so perverted and volitile, or Karkat [[http://mspfanventures.com/?adv=588&id=926 being physically violent with his friends]]. The first of all these problems, however, suddenly came back in full force after [[spoiler:Roxy decides to join Dave and Rose's group]].
* RonTheDeathEater:
** In-universe, Auto Responder and Terezi for the Shipping Intermission. [[spoiler:Possibly invoked given how the thing was written by Spongebob]].
** This is probably the only ''Homestuck'' fan fic where [[spoiler:Pre-scratch Dave, Rose, Roxy, and Dirk]] are '''''all''''' villains. It really says a lot when the former three have done acts worse than what the trolls have done. WordOfGod says that this was due to a lack of any [[spoiler:kid vs kid]] battlefics in the fandom.
* RuleOfSymbolism: (FIRE) John protects Jade from getting his by Red/Flushed miles, then Dave protects both of them from getting hit with miles of the same color. Then [[spoiler:Dave and Jade are suddenly hit with Caliginous Miles]]. John/Jade and John/Dave have been teased a lot, yet Dave and Jade don't really work as a couple in that universe.
* RunningGag:
** A character denying any Jade/guy pairing because Jade is a lesbian. This seemed to stop around Intermission Act 4.
** John fainting at the mention of Rose. The first time this happens, amusingly, Nepeta snaps him out of it before he faints.
** "Show [Person or type of person group]log" sometimes, replacing pesterlog or dialoglog.
** To a lesser extent, in the Shipping Intermission, [[spoiler:a few characters get sliced in half, Eridan ''not'' being one of them even though that was how he died in canon]].
** The phrase "o ok then."
** During the second character select screen, all four of the paths involve a Nepeta clone in some way. For each of them, once the clone is shown, Nepeta is reffered to as the "most impurrtant character in SJAHJ." Every path aside from the Robosanta path introduces at least one new color, with the Robosanta path in question elaborating on Maroon Nepeta's abilities by [[spoiler:showing her other body, which ''technically'' counts as a new Nepeta]].
** The phrase "X sucks raw asscocks" and variants.
** From late into Act Two Act Two (though the first time this was used was back in Intermission Act Four), Lake Arlen is totaly not any sort of lake from the ''Zelda'' franchise. Especially not Lake Hylia. Nope, not at all.
* SailorEarth: Elitaa was a parody before essentially vanishing to extra. Although her gag was to ''replace'' Karkat to some extent; their troll tags even have the same initials and Edmund jeers her to stop replacing him and Edith.
* ScrewYourself:
** Subverted. John has a dream where his "inner female self" tries to make out with him. He respondes by ''kicking her in the groin''. When he sees Jean, who resembles his female counterpart, he does the same.
** In [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=722 this page]], Jake and Jane's tounges are notably not touching the tounges of their respective counterparts.
** Hinted at early in Act 2 when Ice Jade says that she thinks John has a crush on his pyrokinetic version. Non-Ice Jade then imagines the two kissing, thinking that it's hot.
* SelfDeprecation: [=IA3's=] opening[[labelnote:Note]]Technically it's more of the preface to the act, since it isn't the page titled with Intermission Act Three[[/labelnote]] is Jade reading Great Pikmin Fan's walkthrough on the fictional Mario game. It basically {{Flanderize}}[=s=] GPF's own writting style, and in the page after the narrator comments that Jade can't understand his walkthrough because he takes too long to get to the point.
* SequenceBreaking: Jade attempts to do this in Intermission Act 1, by taking her and John to the Warp Zone to skip the first seven worlds. This doesn't exactly work. Especially for Jade.
* ShaggyDogStory: [[spoiler:Getting "the kisss". At the point in the story where the Princess meets with the plumber players and they ''aren't'' struggling with a villain, three of them are in a relationship (two of which in a relationship with eachother plus their counterparts), four of them are away, and one of them the Princess doesn't want to kiss because she smells like dead fish]].
* ShipperOnDeck:
** [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=178 Karkat ships John/Jade.]] And agressivly, at that. Though he really just doesn't want any troll/human relationships and he quickly picked up on their... [[LampshadeHanging closeness.]]
-->FCG: "YOU KNOW YOU JOHN N JADE IF YOU SUCH FRENDS YOU SHOULD STOP DROOLIN OVER TROLLS AND WHY NOT JUST FUCK EECHOTHER?"\\
Much later on in an image, "'JADE'S A LESBIAN' MY ASS. YOU KNOW THERE'S SOMETHING BETWEEN THEN." He oddly strikes out Jade/Dave in the same image, and his commentary consists entirley of "NOPE." [[spoiler:Act 2 reveals that they have a really, ''really'' fucked up friendship, so in hindsight there's no wonder as to why Karkat's thoughts on that was essentially a NoJustNoReaction]].
:: :Spongebob ships them as well, although even ''more'' agressivly. And there's a reason: He believes [[spoiler:that every other romantic option is evil, incestuous, sexuality erasing (this isn't against Jade's sexuality since it's '''''heavily''''' implied that she's not really lesbian), or leaves John and Jake without romantic partners]].
** Roxy seems to ship Dave/Jade and John/Rose. Except that [[RunningGag Jade's a lesbian]], Dave and Rose are in a relationship with eachother, and John used to faint around Rose until ''very'' recently. And she ships Jane/Jake and Dirk/herself, and while the former is working out, the latter isn't. Karkat thinks that Roxy wanting to be with Dirk is just a wish fulfilling dream of hers.
** Prospit and Derse seem to heavily ship Dave/Rose, partially because of the kernel prototyped with dreamselvs of both of them that was carried into the towers, and they themselves were already a couple.
* ShipSinking: This adventure has a nasty habit of axing FanPreferredCouple[=s=], to the extent that Pikmin Fan actually wishes the reader good luck at the opening Author's Notes. At the rate this comic is going, the only possible endgame couples are Dave/Rose, John/Jade, and/or Jane/Jake, and even then none of those three look too shabby. (Except for the former, which ironically [[spoiler:contains the ''least'' stable character when Act Two Act One ends]].)
** Jake and Dirk's ''[[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=264 very first on screen conversation]]'' [[spoiler:basically blows any chance of the two getting together]]. Jake doing it in a blunt manner doesn't really help. [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=719 Although there is this...]] [[spoiler:nope Dirk turned to the darkside Dirk/Jake isn't happening close up shop people]].
** Nepeta/Karkat after the former realizes the latter is dating a human. Prior to this, there was actually some chance of them getting together, assuming Nepeta breaks up with John first. [[spoiler:Which ''does'' happen, but much later]].
** If the name of Roxy's PornStash is anything to go by, she's straight. There goes "Cotton Candy." (Oh yeah, and now there's [[spoiler:how Roxy is now on the side of a murderer simply because of her obsession with shipping]].) Also, Jane is straight as well, with the exact same evidence.
** Every ship with a kid and their patron troll from canon, except possibly John/Vriska [[spoiler:assuming Vriska and Tavros's relationship hits a fault]]. (Which at this rate is impossible regardless; after all, [[RuleOfFunny what's so funny about couples people actually ''want'' hooking up?]]) Dave has Terezi blocked due to an unseen death threat and Rose does not appear ammused at Kanaya when she's stonned. Both of these happened ''before'' [[spoiler:Dave and Rose start trying to kill everyone else]]. And let's not even get '''''started''''' on Jade/Karkat.
*** More spefically, Rose/Kanaya during a... sort-of flashback. Whatever [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=1142 this drug trip]] can be considered. And now [[spoiler:Davosesprite (without the Rose part) asked Rose to flat-out kill Kanaya because she suspects them of attempting to get Jade killed. ''And Rose actually attempts to murder her'', which only fails because Kanaya managed to fend herself off just in time, which also very intentionally led to Rose's death.]]
*** And [[spoiler:Dave/Terezi after Terezi crosses one of Dave's many bizarre, unhinted lines by comparing him to Sasuke Uchiha. He stabs her ''from her computer screen'']].
*** This comic's designated patrons and their ships aren't safe either, though this isn't as big since the most popular out of them is still crack: [[spoiler:Nepeta broke up with John due to picking up on the sheer ammount of ShipTeasing between him and other characters, Kanaya decided to vent out on Jade just before dying and used her death as a sort of end punctuation to the rant, Jake and Feferi are screwed up in many, many ways, and Jane/Equius was never really a thing in the first place]].
** Jade being a lesbian. Although according to her, [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=526 there are ways around it....]] And then there's the several implications that she's only actually bisexual.
*** ...And Dave/Jade specifically [[SerialEscalation blows all of the above examples out of the water, even the three out of four patron ships.]] [[spoiler:Dave (and possibly Rose) pretty much has urges to kill Jade, and whenever he's blamed for actually attempting to kill her, he gets someone to kill the person who blames him.]] Not counting how Jade probably thinks Dave is completely and utterly pathetic, and at one point her vampire ego insults him almost as bad as she insults Karkat. '''''Even more,''''' their hidden hatred was what kicked off the main plot for the last pages of Act 2 Act 1 and all of the plot in Act 2 Act 2 so far. Even though this all happened ''after'' Karkat's "corrections" to Roxy's shipping grid occured, it's really no wonder why in hindsight Karkat's comment on that pairing in this universe was just "NOPE."
** [[spoiler:Any and every possible human Prospit Dreamer/human Derse Dreamer ship. If the attempted murder of Kanaya wasn't a sign that Dave and Rose crossed the line, then them and Roxy and Dirk destroying a Middle School did.]]
* ShipTease: Sweet ''Jegus'', where do we begin on that. John/Jade is by far the most teased couple during the Mario Intermission (even though Jade's a lesbian), with John/Dave supposed to follow that. [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=212 These]] [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=526 two]] pages are by far the most blatant example of the former. The Trip Intermission and Act 2 are so far implying John/Equius and Jade/Kanaya (even though ''both'' people in the former are in a relationship with someone else), complete with Equius finding out John doesn't consider himself a homosexual, and asks if he could... "[[ThatCameOutWrong make]] [[EvenTheGuysWantHim him]] [[StupidSexyFlanders one.]]"
* ShoutOut:
** The Shipping Intermission has one to ''Literature/OfMiceAndMen''.
** The cheat that allows for an infinite ammount of party members to fight in a Mario session rather than just three is the [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Bolero of Fire]], only transfered to keyboard format.
** Hydra is based off of the three[[labelnote:Note]]Actually five, but two of them are of the same type.[[/labelnote]] dragon boss battles in the 3DS Argumented Reality games.
** Jade's nonsensical and somewhat insulting names for her teammates and self to the "names" of the Troll Slayers in ''Webcomic/TailsGetsTrolled''.
-->''Jade: [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=1751 together we make... THE BLUE AND YELLOW TEAM!!!!]]
* ShootTheShaggyDog:
** [[spoiler:The Shipping Intermission]].
** [[spoiler:Everything in regards to Spongebob, up to and including the Shipping Intermission, which was his own fan fiction]].
** [[spoiler:Anything building up John/Rose or (though this didn't get as much focus) Dave/Jade. The chances of these pairings happening is next to impossible, because Rose, Dave, Dirk, and Roxy are all evil and verging on the insane side. Not to mention how Jade has made it clear several times -- once onscreen through a long rant -- that she hates the Strider family]].
** [[spoiler:Hank's storyline]].
* [[ShowWithinAShow Series Within a Comic]]: ''Coolstuck'', a comic by Dave about 3 guys who play a game. Just as SJAHJ is supposed to be ''Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff'' with ''Homestuck'' characters, CS is supposed to be ''Homestuck'' with ''Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff'' characters. Also, Dave was the writter of this universe's versions of ''Jailbreak'', ''Bardquest'', and ''Problem Sleuth''.
* ShowDontTell: Inovked with the differences between the alter-egos and their originals. Also, Equius and Feferi are supposed to be Jane and Jake's patron trolls respectivley, but all there is to show for that is that they've been hitting on them during memos. Kanaya's patronage with Jade and to a lesser extent Nepeta's patronage with John are a lot more clear.
* ShrugOfGod: Great Pikmin Fan himself is unsure as to what the hell the Shipping Intermission is supposed to symbolize outside of foreshadowing a few events later on in the comic. He also confirmes a few times that occasionally he just makes stuff up about the story.
* SiblingRivalry: John and Jane are rather... competitive in the Mario game. Or, at least they were, before teaming up during the inward journey.
* SirSwearsALot: Several characters, including John and especially Jade. "Fuck" was the very first word of dialogue said in the entire comic.
** Taken UpToEleven with Fox Crew member Fuckass Mike (the only OriginalCharacter on the team), who's quirk is that he says "motherfucking" before ''every noun''.
** UU/Edith has sworn at least once in every conversation she's been involved in.
* SlapSlapKiss: It's implied that the relationship between [[spoiler:Jade and Jake's mother and Dave and Dirk's father]] was like this.
* SlapstickKnowsNoGender: Between Jade having a modis that repeatedly punches her (as well as getting a nosebleed which leads to being punched off a ship), Kanaya getting hit in the face with Vriska's butt (it makes less sense in context), Rose and Roxy getting mauled by a dog, and Jane, Jean, and Jaka getting kicked between the legs before ''anyone else'', it's safe to say that no female character whatsoever is safe from SBAHJ-esque shinanegans.
* SpotlightStealingSquad: Dave during the beginning of [=IA4=]. Hell, even a bit after. "Sweet Rose and Hella Dave" ''was'' supposed to be focused on them, Roxy, and AR equally, and Rose and Roxy's plot does involve only them. However, Dave's part barley includes AR more than the other eight people that contacted him. The part from when the character select screen ended to when the perspective shifts back to John and Jade had Dave as almost entirley the main character, with the Lalondes barley getting any spotlight. This has since been dealt with by [[spoiler:making Dave a villain in Act 2... though from there he becomes more relevant and more of a threat than ''Rip'', the comic's designated main villain]]. Lampshaded when Dave and Rip have appearantly started a debate over relevancy.
* StaircaseTumble: Oddly averted. In fact, one of the thread titles was "where stairs are surprisingly friendly."
* TheStarscream: [[spoiler:Rip, who actually ''succeeds'' in dethroning Quimby. She currently has a bunch of familiars released all over World 8, but since every kid is out of the Mario session (or at least World 8, in Teal Nepeta's case), she doesn't pose a threat to them. Yet.]]
* StatusQuoIsGod: The Mario Intermission was rather static for the most part; none of the human kids or troll kids die permenantly, and the Fox Crew and Millennium keep killing off members of eachother only for them to come back. [[spoiler:However, in Intermission Act 4, Fox Crew deaths became "permenant," and during Act 2 all of the group in question die]].
* StealthPun: The Shipping Intermission's ships are not-so-subtle puns, mostly of fandom IdiosyncraticShipNaming:
** The ship Dave starts out in is massive and called the [[{{Slash}} S.S. Slasher]].
** Rose (and Roxy) are riding a plush of {{Shrek}}, an orge, with needles in its eyes. [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=003486 Sound familiar?]]
** Karkat's (stolen) ship bears the logo of communism. Hammer + sickle, their weapons in both ''Homestuck'' and SJAHJ.
** Jade's ship is the yellow ship from the beginning of SJAHJ. Also nicknamed a "Prospit Ship" even though Prospit doesn't exist, reffering to John and Jade's dream moon.
* StraightGay: Jade, Jean, Joan, and Jaka. Although Jade... is pretty perverted.
* StripPoker: Cleveland Brown and Tubalcain Alhambra are first seen playing this, even though they're supposed to be fighting.
* StunnedSilence: Dirk's :O!!!! expression.
* StylisticSuck: And yet, it doesn't use [=JPEGs=] until the last page before the end of Intermission Act 3. And it barley uses them since.
* SuddenlySexuality:
** Jade is supposed to be only attracted to girls, yet one page shows that she finds two guys kissing to be "kinda hot," complete with giving a "Drew Pickles smile."
** During the Dave's IFS arc, Kanaya claims herself to now be bi, then switches back to only being attracted to girls after looking at Dirk's ass.
* TankGoodness: [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=117 The first page with Rose and Roxy]] shows the latter in a tank. What exactly is going on isn't revealed until over six hundred pages later, where it turns out [[spoiler:Roxy was just trying to blow a hole in the wall to uncover a hidden treasure map.]]
* TakeThat: [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=910 This page]] and the following is one to the "forevver alone" meme surrounding Eridan.
* TeasingCreator: Mild example: The fan fic endlessly teases-but-they-aren't-a-couple-yet Prospitcest during the first few acts. Jade and Jude even almost kiss Jean at one point, before John brings up his relationship with Nepeta. But because of the polygamy-issue, Jean and Jade are now ''this'' close to being a couple in this fan fic. ''And then [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=794 this]] happens''. But if anything that page raises hope for the pairing in question, especially seeing as [[spoiler:all other romantic love options are slowly turning to the evil side]].
* ThatCameOutWrong: Cronus telling Karkat that he's "never in the mood..." the mood for Cronus hitting on him, of course.
* ThemeInitials: Hank Hill and Rip Van Winkle's chumhandles (rightWorker and hellishHuntress, respectivly) have eachother's initials.
* ToiletHumor: The later part of Intermission Act One. Which leads you to wonder exactly what John was doing with a laxative.
* TotallyRadical: John and Jade. Was originally supposed to apply to nearly everyone, but the author decided against that, attempting to keep the other characters more true to their canon selfs. Except Kanaya, who fell victim to John and Jade's characters.
* {{Troll}}:
** Spongebob Squarepants sends threats and manipulates the heroes into reading his shipping fan fics. It's revealed in Act 2 Intermission 1 that this is all an act, in revenge for three different Jades chewing him out in the first conversations from his perspective.
** John acts like a troll to his own past selves, to the extent that even ''Jade'' finds it cruel. '''''[[EvenEvilHasStandards Jade.]]'''''
** And Jade [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=1473 seems to be taking up trolling tendancies.]]
** Roxy, on a more meta level, for impersonating two villains from ''Homestuck'' (sober Gamzee and Lord English) in pesterlogs. And the first of which raised a mystery for a decently-long ammount of time (Beginning of Intermission Act Three to beginning of Intermission Act Four.)
* TrollingCreator: Dave in-universe. He's responce to when John, FIRE John, and Jean read about [[spoiler:Geromy getting killed off]]?
-->TG: AINT I A DICK?
* TheUnintelligible:
** In ''Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals'', Zorin occasionally spoke with her dialogue written like a troll quirk. Here, it's turned UpToEleven, where her quirk pretty much consists of as many combinations of troll/kid quirks without any conflicts as possible, forming things like... [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=145 this]]. Pikmin Fan actually had to translate what she said on the forum. Since Zorin's dialogue in that page there has been a troll character introduced who adds at least two more subsitutions to the already used ones ''and'' who'se quirk involves mispelling things. So now her dialogue gets even ''[[http://mspfanventures.com/?adv=588&id=1770 more]]'' incomprehensible.
** As of January 11th, in responce to critisism, Pikmin Fan will go back through the series and edit the dialogue so that the series as a whole will avoid this trope. He already started on the first three panels.
* UnrealisticBlackHole: The [[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext Chinese food black hole]]. For starters, it's implied that it destroyed the Chinese restaurant it formed in, yet the characters ''outrun it'' and escape to saftey. And it does ''nothing'' to its surroundings unless they actually jump into it. And it's appearantly a huge source of magic. And ''then'' Good Yoshi eats it, the magic transforming him into [[VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG Boshi]].
* UnwantedHarem: A mild example, but Dave appears to have had ''every'' kid human, troll, and Simpsonian crushing on him. Even heterosexual John and homosexual Jade. uu/Edmund and Meenah (and possibly Eridan) seem to be the only explicit exceptions. Well, that's how it was, [[spoiler:when Dave turned evil nobody outside of his lackies likes him anymore.]]
* VideoGameSettings: The 8 Mario Worlds.
** World 1: GreenHillZone.
** World 2: ShiftingSandLand.
** World 3: PalmtreePanic.
** World 4: BubblyClouds.
** World 5: UndergroundLevel. [[spoiler:DeathMountain on the surface. Oddly, you're supposed to begin in the caves]].
** World 6: TheLostWoods.
** World 7: SlippySlideyIceWorld.
** World 8: As per tradition, LethalLavaLand.
* VillainousIncest: Arguably [[spoiler:Dave and Rose, due to being related in ''Homestuck'' and seemingly taking on an antagonistic role near the end of Act 2 Act 1]].
* VisibleSilence: Again, ":O!!!!"
* TheVoiceless: Planksprite, from the offshoot universe where [[spoiler:Rip becomes extremely powerful and Dave wins the battle between him and the protagonists]]. He only spoke twice, but both times he used badly compressed JPEGS of Kurloz's canon talksprites.
* WalkingSpoiler: [[spoiler:Dave, Aranea, ''Dove'', and the Tricksters]], the latter two groups had their existance being spoilers. The counterparts ''were'' this, going by up to Intermission Act Three (they were hinted at back when John and Jade finally met with Jane and Jake; between John springing his into existance and the actual counterpart's appearance was an entire 70+ page intermission), though now they're not quite.
* WeHardlyKnewYe:
** Most of the Millennium [[spoiler:and the "minor" members of the Fox Crew. This was basically Darkhorse's whole joke until the reveal that he has some kind of extremely strong power]].
** The troll ancestors. All of them.
* WebcomicTime: Barring flashbacks, the entire set of events in this comic so far take place within four days. Day 1 (February 13th, which was actually a month ''after'' the comic had first started) went from the beginning to the dream sequences in Intermission Act 2; and tecnically at a point around Sweet TROLLS and Hella MORE TROLLS, as it did crossover to midnight. Day 2 covered the inward jorney, tower ascention, and a good chunk of events going on outside of the Mario game after it ended. Day 3 is ongoing, but it's night as of the latest update thanks to a several hour skip while the Fire/Ice duo were at stalemate with [[spoiler:Roxy]] and the rest of the Blue and Yellow Team were relaxing at Nepeta's main base. Kanaya's comments implies that it's around 11 pm, so day 3 is extremely close to concluding. Even more, unlike ''Homestuck'' the actual time is constantly listed whenever someone pesters another, which is becoming considerably more often.
* WhamEpisode: In page order:
** [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=791 This]] four-page sequence, at the time. The comic skirts around John/Jade quite often [[spoiler:and then Rose and Dave kiss]]. Aranea ''rubs this into the reader's faces'' in Act Two Intermission One.
** Jack getting the Queen's ring wasn't unexpected at all. After putting it on, he contemplates the result of getting prototyped with Bowser, the Ice King, Dave, Rose, and Edward Cullen. [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=1200 But then he puts every single thought to the side resulting in this, the comic's very first clear hint that]] [[spoiler:Dave, Rose, or both (it turns out both) are not as good as they seem]].
** "[[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=1380 And thus, Sponge8o8's first conversashin from his perspective.]]" Not the conversation itself, but the image. "It's War" ''indeed.'' Worse, Fire John is shown to ''like'' being involved with [[spoiler:his battle against Dave]].
** [[spoiler:Trickster Jade's appearance. Although since tricksters have became canon, this significantly lessens the blow of the update]].
** The zoomouts, starting in Act 2 Act 2 from when Roxy [[spoiler:unleashes the Curser Women by blowing up the magic door slealing them in their dungeon]]. Basically, [[spoiler:Dirk found a possible weakness for Dave, Damara seems to be working with Aranea on something, and clouds from World 4 -- revealed to be used as a stand-in for ''Skaia'' -- are showing John standing in a rainy area holding a shield that wasn't even ''made'' yet, Jade meeting up with all of her alter-egos seen so far including the previously unseen Blue Demon Jade, Jake during the Curser Woman fight (only himself and the roof of the restroom he's standing on is visible, as in the actual panel it happens in), and Jane ''using the chaos emeralds to enter super form''. WordOfGod says that those last four events will all happen within [=A2A2=]. A fifth cloud shows Robosanta's ghost meeting with the ghosts of Hank Hill and Integra Heck, and things such as Geromy working on God tiering Jeff and that the multiverse is part of a tree in Black Hell are shown to wrap it up.]]
* WhamLine: The ending line in the short conversation from "[[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=1279 Rose: Answer.]]" and the following page.
-->TG: nepeta has\\
TG: in a sort of way and in an accidental way\\
TG: framed us\\
TG: and kanaya bought it\\
TG: since this is kanaya were talking about that only leaves one option for me to propose\\
TG: [[spoiler:killing her]]
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** If the doodles during the Unite/Synchonize set of updates is any indication, Elitaa was supposed to be Jane's original patron troll, and Equius and Nepeta were going to share the role of John's. However, as revealed in Act 2 Intermission 1, Pikmin Fan simply ''stopped liking'' the idea of Elitaa and decided to make her unnotable, with John's patron appearantly being only Nepeta and Jane's being Equius. (Also, there was the concern of the elephant in the room that is Elitaa looking like a hybrid of John and Jade, with this hybrid developing a romantic intrest with their individual inspritation's canon ectomother.)
** Pikmin Fan stated that the war arc was to go in a completely different direction than it is now. For one, the classmates were supposed to be involved more.
** [[spoiler:Dave was originally going to undergo a heroic sacrifice -- if ''Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals'' would be any indication, it is likley that he was meant to be some sort of Alucard expy. However, the dialogue was written so that either making Dave an antagonist or having him run away are the only viable options that came to Pikmin Fan's mind at the time, so he went with the former due to finding it more interesting]].
* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: Four hundred pages in, this is finally averted when AuthorAvatar GPF's walkthrough of "Mario" shows that John, Jade, and Hank live in Texas. The Striders and Lalondes presumably live there to, and John's house is within walking distance from their residence. (As Dirk was able to walk over by the portal where John's house was pre-entry and entered the session.) And the park -- which is within walking distance of the Lalonde's house, was reached by a Dream Dave in the middle of his trip from his house to John's house.
* WholePlotReference: John and Dave's arc in Act Two Act Two to the Sasuke Retrieval Arc in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''; to the extent that [[spoiler:there is going to be a battle between the two at a historical waterfall-filled valley]].
* WhyDontYouJustShootHim: Played with. Towards the end of Act Two Intermission One, [[spoiler:Hank, captured by Janitor and Zorin, asks Aranea why doesn't she just shoot him. She replies with "Ok" and shoots him afterward.]]
* WillTheyOrWontThey '''''John and Jade'''''. Just fueled by Spongebob lampshading this whenever pestering them or their counterparts: "[=HAVE YoU FUCKED (JADE/JoHN) YET?=]" Even worse, ''twice'' it was mentioned that alternate versions of them had hooked up, and to add fuel to the fire one of them seems to be working out while the other one hooked up and broke up offscreen.
* WithFriendsLikeThese: With her constant pervertedness, [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=588&p=209 short temper]], and joking about her close friend's parent's sex lifes, it's something of a wonder why John is such a close friend to Jade. Jane and Joan partially lampshade this when [[spoiler:Jade gets hit by the miles caused by The Evil]] when they say that they barley got to know her. For that matter, Dave's notably a ''lot'' more stuck-up than he was in canon, complete with thinking that he's going to be the big hero and outright insults John and Hank Hill. (Though not directly to them.)
* TheWorfEffect:
** Bowser, getting killed offscreen ''very'' early into the story by The Evil, and with The Evil taking over as the villain. It's somewhat like the Prospit vs. Derse war in ''Homestuck''.
** [[spoiler:Darkhorse is possibly one of the strongest characters in the comic. Why? ''He'' was the one responsible for Hecksing's death, up to and including the death of Alucard]].
* WouldHitAGirl:
** At one point, when Jane and Jake are guarding the entrance to World 8-4, the command is given (to no one in particular) to punch them in their faces. John punches Jane (although he appears to punch her ''side'' rather than her face) without hesitation. But Jane punches him back, and due to being at a higher level, she takes out way more health than he does to her.
** John accidentally kicks Jane in the groin in his sleep. After her screaming from the pain wakes everybody up, John appologises to whoever he kicked... although after finding out who it was, he responds with "oh. it's you." in a less apologitic expression. He later kicks Jean in the groin, only this time it's very intentional (but caused by a misunderstanding).
** Eridan attempts to outright murder Terezi in a duel by opening fire on her... [[spoiler:before Feferi walks in and ''slaps him'']].
** There are only two women in the Millennium, and Hank seems to be hell bent on killing one of them more than any of the other members (even the leader). The other woman is sliced in half by her own weapon. Twice.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Rip seems to go by the OVA design of having dark blue hair, rather than black. It's implied that at least Jade and her ancestor have blue hair as well. Jade and Jake also have a shade of blue, taking Spongebob's shipping wall into consideration. Edith has the same dark blue, but it looks lighter in her first appearance. Although she dyes it. Edmund, much to his dismay, ''naturally'' has blue hair.
* YourHeadAsplode: Karkat's reaction to finding out that he is created from a combination of human and troll ectoslime, after constantly opposing troll/human dating. Thankfully it was just a dreamself.
* YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle: After over one thousand pages[[labelnote:Note]]If you include the Shipping Intermission.[[/labelnote]], during the ''very last page before the Mario Intermission is '''finally''' over'', Nepeta comments that the session itself is only about a third of the main story.
* ZillionDollarBill: The title screen, for some reason, features an image of the ten million dollar bill from ''Film/{{Idiocracy}}''. This has yet to appear in the adventure itself, aside from a one-shot joke late into the comic where it shows up on a poster in front of Tom Landry Middle.
