* AdultFear: The admins in charge of the system explicitly render loopers unable to have children they would not have had in a normal timeline, since the child would cease to exist the moment a loop ended. The agony of losing said child left [[spoiler:Ranma]] in tears.
* AdaptationalBadass: Quite a number of Loopers acquire WrongContextMagic or tech or abilities from other Loops.
* AdaptationalHeroism: Some characters that were villainous in the baseline has mellowed out since they have started Looping.

* BeyondTheImpossible: Yggdrasil is like a computer and if loopers force it to do things that its not programmed for or doesn't have the capacity to perform, the result is an error. Errors mean more work for admins and Eiken loops for loopers.

* BreakingTheFourthWall: {{Inverted}}. Since all the characters know that the hub universe (our world) exists, references to this generally make sense InUniverse. The only true example is ComicBook/{{Deadpool}}, who is the only one aware of the writers working on the Infinite Loops (and he isn't even looping).

* CanonImmigrant: Not only does the loops allow characters from different canons to interact, there are even a few characters from ''[[RecursiveFanfiction other]]'' [[RecursiveFanfiction fanfics]] who have gone on to become loopers too. These include:

** Items from locked Loops can't be taken even with subspace pockets, and tend to get replaced with disapproving notes from the Admins. Twilight Sparkle was very disappointed to learn that she wouldn't get to play with Timelord technology.

* ContinuitySnarl: Both in ''and'' out of universe, due to bizarre Variant Loops and the absurd number of authors, respetively.
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: Loopers who manage to crash a Loop by pulling too many shenanigans (creating extra work for the admin responsible for it) get punishment loops in unpleasant settings, the most notorious being the Eiken loops.

** Several worlds that were this in baseline, however, have begun to improve over time, thanks to the efforts of the Loopers.



* CurbStompBattle: Fights between a Looper and a non-looper will, with very few exceptions, result in one in the Looper's favour due to their vast experience and access to WrongContextMagic and tech.

** [[spoiler:Rincewind]], on the other hand, is so efficient at running away that he has not yet died in ANY loop... [[spoiler:Until the death of Sir Terry Pratchett, at least. Since Death couldn't be there for Sir Terry, Rincewind goes in his place, and dies for the first time in the Loops.]]

** Of course, there's also character interpretations and such. One writer may write an arc to show that a character as some rather deep HiddenDepths... while another can write an arc shortly after that has them extremely {{Flanderized}} for the [[RuleOfFunny sake of comedy.]]
* DimensionalTraveler: Traveling to a variation of the universe you're in isn't a problem, as it's technically part of the same Loop. Traveling to a completely different Loop on the other hand can create significant problems within Yggdrasil, especially if an Anchor spends a great deal of time during a Loop outside their Loop of origin. Series/OnceUponATime has been designated Read-Only because, in addition to that, no one can tell just how many Anchors are needed to stabilize the multiple tangled potential Loops it encompasses in the first place.

]] Both can be true, also, given the nature of the Loops being a massive TimeAbyss.

* EvilVersusOblivion: The main reason gods that would otherwise be labeled "Evil" are allowed to loop. They may be violent, sadistic, or murderous, but in the end, they still need Yggdrasil to survive. Without it, they too would be destroyed.

* GodIsFlawed: The Admins; they're even stronger than the Loopers, older as well, and generally just the same mentally as the Loopers are.



* {{Hammerspace}}: Subspace Pockets. These are the only way Loopers can carry things over between the loops. The size of a Pocket is a function of power, how recently someone began looping, and to some extent authorial choice. (For example, Ichigo early in his Loops has space for either his Shinigami badge or Kon, but not both; conversely, Ranma, one of the oldest and most powerful Loopers, collects death stars.)

** Sadly, MLEs are often aversions of this.



* SuperWeightScale: Loopers are typically at least a Class 4 or 5 after enough time. The ability to Ascend seems to require someone being at least a Class 6. The Admins themselves are a Class 7.



* TimeAbyss: All Loopers eventually become this in the subjective sense because the loops make them "older than Merlin"

** [[spoiler: Also the original function of the Subspace Pockets, to take up increasingly larger amounts of the Looper in question's power and mental focus. The side-effect of carrying things past the Loop reset is entirely tangental, but is used as a selling point to newer Loopers.]]

* {{Railroading}}: Safe-Mode Servers, such as Eiken, railroad loopers onto the canon plot. On a personal level, Setsuna Syndrome is characterized by seeing the events of the baseline (or in some cases, a 'perfect timeline) as sancrosect and attempting to railroad events to happen like they would in canon. This is usually because the sufferer believes that doing so will end the time loop.

** Technically, all the fics made after Innortals. Though they all have their own unique plots in between the episodic shenanigans, they're still set in the same overall Multiverse as his. (Though, exactly ''what'' and ''which'' of Innortals snips are treated as canon by the community as a whole thanks to his... [[DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale err]], unique brand of humor is still [[BaseBreaker heavily debated]] to this day.)

* RealityBreakingParadox: Occasionally pops up, which results in the loop ending earlier than normal. Granted, it's a bit more justified due to the multiverse being on the fritz. Sometimes, loopers will actually [[InvokedTrope invoke]] this, despite is usually resulting in punishment loops, to force resets and escape extremely unpleasant variants.

* MultipleChoicePast: Those suffering under Dissassociative Loop Identity Disorder experience this, much to their dismay as after a while, even ''they'' aren't sure who the 'real' them is. It's caused when a looper has many different variants based on how many [[AlternateContinuity Alternate Continuities]] their loops universe has, where they have different roles and personality in almost every one of them. The most extreme cases are [[Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles April 'O Neil]] (who has no less than ''ten'' possible 'real' hers and personalities) and [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Lyra Heartstrings]], who has four based on common fandom interpretations of her. (Though, unlike April, she's embraced her [[SplitPersonality split personalities]] and frequently [[TalkingToThemself talks to them in her mind when she has to make important decisions.]]

** Epona, celtic goddess of horses and fertility, is in charge of the Legend of Zelda loops and, on at least one occasion, has looped in as Epona. She's also Sleipnir's girlfriend.

** Franchise/CarmenSandiego. In the WebVideo/HitlerRants universe she stole Fegelein's antics, Hitler's ability to laugh at Fegelein, his rant for that ''and'' for stealing the other rant, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking the door of his office]] and his men's ability to chase her, while in a visit to ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' she decided to top Lupin's previous heist by stealing Gate of Babylon (not the treasures inside, the immaterial Gate of Babylon itself) and Gilgamesh' ability to care for it (then Lupin stole her a kiss and her clothes).
