Commented out Zero Context Examples. Add context before uncommenting. Misuse of Cluster F Bomb. Biggus Dickus has been renamed. Morality Chain example s/b Morality Pet. Crowning Moment Of Awesome is a matter of opinion. Don't spoiler tag things that aren't really spoilers. Removed Word Cruft, which includes unneeded intensifiers such as italic/bold markup. A trope can't be "partially averted". Removed details—especially spoilers—that aren't needed to understand the examples. Fixed Example Indentation. Replaced epithets to simplify for non-fans per example writing guidelines. Write examples in present tense.

* BiggusDickus: Duncan. Well, according to [[PeepingTom Izzy]], anyway. * ChivalrousPervert: Owen. He really does mean well, and Izzy is the one goading him on. * ClusterFBomb: Izzy drops the F Bomb a few times throughout the story. * DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler:Izzy]] has one. * DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: A non-romantic, non-comedic example. Eva tied up Ezekiel in a lawn chair because of a sexist comment he ''didn't even make'', beat him up when he tried to stand up for Izzy, and tossed him, ''still tied up'', in a swimming pool. If Izzy, Geoff, and Bridgette hadn't saved him, Zeke would've ''drowned.'' Aside from a couple mentions of the rescue, no one makes any real note of it. * FreudianExcuse: Duncan has one for being harsh towards Bridgette and her relationship with Geoff and voting her off both seasons. It's one that's so deep-seated even he wasn't consciously aware of it until Izzy [[AwesomenessByAnalysis deduced it]]: It turns out he used to have a girlfriend back in his hometown. She resembled Bridgette down to her hair color, ponytail, and attitude. She called the police on him and made a crime he committed out to be much worse than it actually was. Right after he was thrown in jail, she started dating his best friend. * {{Hypocrite}}: Courtney tries to call out Izzy for dating a supposed misogynist in Ezekiel, only for Izzy to come back with this: --> '''Izzy''': "This coming from the girl, who acts so professional and by the rules and expects everyone to do the same... [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome and yet you're shagging a criminal!]]" ** Izzy calls out Eva as well when the fitness girl makes fun of seeing Izzy and Ezekiel being intimate in the hot tub one night, while she had already been involved in a secret "never-ending sex romp" with Noah, which Izzy knew about from the start, but had the good grace not to tell anyone (until said moment when Eva crossed the line with her.) * InsecureLoveInterest: Eva and Izzy. For Eva, her insecurity stems from the worry of Noah's family criticizing him because he's dating someone who's not "a college person", in her own words. For Izzy, it's the fear that once she tells Zeke about what her family's really like and how they view her, he'll feel the same way and reject her. Both are reassured by their respective boyfriends that this will never be the case. * {{Jerkass}}: Chris, natch. * LeeroyJenkins: Izzy yells out the "classic" battle-cry when she attacks a couple rude customers, one of whom hit Ezekiel. * MoralityChain: DJ for Heather. Partially averted in the sense that she still makes fun of the others, but reins in her feelings and notions when DJ asks her to. It's a slow, but steady process from how she was on TDA.
