** After her eyes are damaged by her torture at Lung's hands, Jade takes to wearing a blindfold to protect herself from bright lights that she is now quite sensitive too. Following her VillainousBreakdown, she upgrades this to a full mask taken from one of her Ninja Khan, which is both better at blocking out the light (which she now has a pathological aversion to) ''and'' has the pragmatic purpose of protecting her from onions.
** [[spoiler: Viper's transformation into Hebi comes complete with a set of samurai armor that she always wears.]]



* GameChanger: [[spoiler: After the events of Chapter 20, Jade decides its time for this. So she kidnaps Viper and forces her to become her General, [[ShooOutTheClowns fires The Enforcers]] ([[BenevolentBoss with their belongings and full pay]]), regains control of her summoning Shadowkhan power along with Viper being about to summon the Samurai Khan who are now loyal to Jade, and seems entirely focused on defeating the J-Team who she assumes are out to kill or seal her.]]

** After the fight in the Hall of Ice, when he realizes that Jade has become quite unhinged, Tohru repeats the ceremony to reenter Jade's mind in order to try and understand what's happening. This time, he meets Desire, who explains that Paranoia's increasing influence over the Queen is causing Jade's mind to degrade even worse than it already was.


Added DiffLines:

*** And post-VillainousBreakdown, as Paranoia gain influence over the Queen, it becomes covered by a FogOfWar that is apparently corroding everything it touches.

* AndIMustScream: [[spoiler: After Viper is transformed into Hebi, she's trapped inside her own mind, unable to fight against what her corrupted self is doing.

*** It goes even further than that -- it turns out the Elders only came to power by betraying and murdering the other females of the Shadowkhan, so that they could have sole power, and then erased all records of them, which Tarakudo later did to them in turn.

* ShoutOut: When Farmer [=MacDonald=] learns about Jade's FaceHeelTurn, he comments that she's "gone all [[StarWars Darth Vader]]".
** In the same chapter, when he learns about the Hana Fuda cards, he makes what might be a reference to ''Anime/YuGiOh''
** At one point, when the Enforcers are entering the mansion headquarters, one of the house ghouls [[Literature/AChristmasCarol appears on the front door's knocker; Finn refers to him as "Marley".]]
** When Ratso is trying to figure out how to use his mask's powers, he at one point blurts out "{{Shazam}}!"
*** In the same chapter, Jade compares taking advice from a mysterious voice (Tarakudo) to ''Series/CharliesAngels".
** The DreamSequence in the third Interlude chapter is partially inspired by the ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' episode "Nightmares and Daydreams", according to WordOfGod. Also, when his attempts to communicate with Jade via the dream fail, Tarakudo comments that "[[StarWars Obi-Wan Kenobi]] never had this problem."
** Speaking of ''Avatar'', Left's use of a pair of broadswords is apparently based on Zuko's WeaponOfChoice.
** Ozeki's obsessive, fanatical loyalty to Jade (including referring to her as "the Royalty") and Jade's unease about it is meant to mirror [[WesternAnimation/BeastWars Inferno's relationship with Megatron]]. Though one could argue there's a bit of [[WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated Lugnut]] in there as well.
*** Another ''Transformers'' reference -- during a flashback to Tarakudo's coup, he begins a duel with Hiruzen by stating that "[[TransformersTheMovie One shall rise,]] [[{{Film/Transformers}} one shall fall.]]"
** When he senses [[spoiler: Wong's death]], Verde compliments that it was a "good performance", but then states "[[{{Film/Batman}} wait till they get a load o' me.]]"
*** And for another Franchise/{{Batman}} shout out, during Jade's JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind, when she meets Greed/Desire, she compares her appearance to Harvey Dent/Two-Face.
** During Lung's first appearance, Verde describes him as looking like "[[ComicStrip/FlashGordon Ming the Merciless']] Goth cousin."
** Speaking of Verde, the description given for him sounds an awful lot like [[Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog Dr. Facilier]].
*** [[WordOfGod According to the author]], however, this was purely a coincidence. Though he has admitted that his enjoyment of the movie is his reason for expanding on Verde's role in the story.
** Drago comments "[[StarWars Boring conversation anyway,]]" when shutting a blast door on Shendu.
** Karasu tells Tohru that he [[Series/{{Heroes}} looks different without his scars]].
*** In another possible ''Heroes'' shout out, the Matriarch has a pet snake named Mohinder.
** The scary doctor auditioning to be Jade's new foreman seems [[WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers awfully]] [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed familiar...]]
** Viper dresses as Comicbook/{{Catwoman}} for Halloween, while El Toro wears a Franchise/{{Spider-Man}} mask when Hak Foo steals his.
*** At a different point in the chapter, El Toro asks Hak Foo and Finn if they are "[[Series/GameOfThrones men or snakes]]" for threatening Paco.
** Hero's original plan for building a boat involved catching [[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean sea turtles]].
** During their fight, Blankman can't resist [[Franchise/{{Zorro}} carving a Z into Jackie's shirt]].
** Ratso refers to the electro-swords as [[Franchise/StarWars lightsabers]].
** When the J-Team first enters the Vault of Endless Night, a zombie alters the other evils to their presence by pointing an arm at them and shrieking, much like the aliens in the 70s remake of ''Film/InvasionOfTheBodySnatchers''.

* DickDastardlyStopsToCheat: Almost done by Jade in Chapter 17, when she realizes that the J-Team is catching up to her while on the search for the Hall of Ice. However, Blankman points out that if they stop to ambush and fight the heroes, they risk losing the lead. Reluctantly, Jade agrees, and just sets off some explosions to block the path behind them.
