Parabombing. Alos, please do not reference other parts of the article with "above", "below", etc; articales get rearranged all the time, so these are not always accurate. Also, indentation issues.
* AscendedExtra: Aesop. From being just another duelist that Stan defeats to earn another Crystal Card in the original to becoming one of the finalists in ''Redux''. (According to Cyber Commander, Aesop has officially become Wanda's replacement. See OldShame below.)

** As mentioned above, if the Queen or anyone working for her, whether they want to or not (mind-controlled people and people who don't know they're working for the Shadow Queen, like people she loans cards to, count), defeats Stan, Fran, and Andy in a fair contest, the spell is lifted and the Queen can leave.

** As mentioned above, if If the Queen or anyone working for her, whether they want to or not (mind-controlled people and people who don't know they're working for the Shadow Queen, like people she loans cards to, count), know, or are simply BrainwashedAndCrazy, defeats Stan, Fran, and Andy in a fair contest, the spell is lifted and the Queen can leave.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: The Shadow Queen reviews footage of previous duels like Yugi, Joey, and Kaiba's struggles against Dartz and his henchmen to learn from the bad guys' mistakes. Also, to increase her chances of victory, she loans cards to ordinary people, because this causes them to count as working for her, meaning these ordinary people would break the curse if they were to beat Stan, Fran, and Andy. In ''Redux'', when the Queen revives her former ally Smithy, she has a very clever backup plan in case he is defeated (which he is) sending Magical Scientist to sneak into his lair while he and the heroes are distracted to steal his blueprints. This backup plan is successful, and threatens to have repercussions that affect the remainder of the story.

* HollywoodAcid: Much like the ConvectionSchmonvection example above, this Trope is not only subverted in the place where it is suggested, but the villain gives an explanation of why the Trope is so absurd. * HouseRules: The Deckmaster system is in place for all duels that occur inside the Palace of Shadow, which have been upgraded slightly.

* RunningGag: In the original, Andy ends up facing people who utilize Dark Necrofear several times, which he lampshades and finds very annoying. ** Anyone who sees Cosmo Queen for the first time utters "[[NiceHat Neat hat.]]" (This gag is actually universal in YGO fanfics.) * SarcasmMode: See the above RhetoricalQuestionBlunder.

* VillainousRescue: In the original, after Stan, Fran, and Andy pass the puzzle at the entrance of the Palace and make it inside, the Shadow Spawn (minus Vladmir) grab hold of the VillainBall and try to kill them. The Shadow Queen finds out and saves them. She then offers them food. The heroes are understandably confused. (See PragmaticVillainy above for her reasons.)

* WombLevel: [[spoiler:The Heart of the Palace of Shadow]], the place where the finals of the tournament are held, is described as the interior of a still-living being, but ''not'' a very healthy one; it's covered with growths that resemble tumors and cancers. The Companions tell Stan that [[spoiler:this is where the original battle between the Queen and the Three Heroes happened a thousand years ago, and she likely intends to use it as a battleground again for a currently unexplained reason.]]

* WrongGenreSavvy: In the original, Melissa, Kurtis, Tyson, Maria, and Leopold attack Stan, Fran, and Andy upon their entry into the Palace of Shadows. Ordinarily, this would be a very [[WhyDontYaJustShootHim practical move on their part]] since the trio is an enemy of theirs and this act would get rid of them, but it becomes this trope since Shadow Queen's CurseEscapeClause ''requires'' the threesome to be defeated by her or someone under her employ (such as the aforementioned Shadow Spawn) in a fair contest. Since this attack would be anything ''but'' a fair contest, the Shadow Queen has to enact a VillianousRescue so as to keep her only way out of the Palace from being destroyed. This scene is not present in ''Redux''. * YouDontWantToKnow: This is Bleck's response when the protagonists ask who Hooktail and Gloomtail's eldest brother was, although Stan, who is very GenreSavvy, seems to have a good idea who it is. [[spoiler: Bleck clearly knows that it's Bonetail, who is the villain in two spin-off fics written by mario72486, one of which is considered part of the Shadowchasers series.]]

** In the original version, Merlee senses dark forces and deduces that a new hero will eventually emerge to oppose it. This alludes to the now-cancelled fic ''YuGiOh: Tilting the Balance''.

Ryo uses a card that depicts the Marvel Comics villain the GreenGoblin, but it appears to be a normal card.

Trivia. Relocating accordingly. Also, do NOT rename tropes to fit the example.
* [[BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind Battle In The Center Of The Soul]]: [[spoiler:Diana has a quick contest of luck while resisting the Queen's control. Diana wins. This happens in ''Redux'' as well, but a little more skill is involves along with luck, and Count Bleck may have helped it reach that point.]]

* [[DarkIsNotEvil Dark Is Not]] ObviouslyEvil: Vladmir, the Shadow Spawn of Darkness. Among the Spawn, and most of the Queen's servants, he's the nicest of the bunch. Although he still wants to defeat our heroes and free the Queen.

* [[DrowningMySorrows Drowning Our Sorrows]]: In the original version, Sean, Cyrus, Gerald and Aesop do this with milkshakes after they fail to acquire a Crystal Star before they have to leave the following day. This scene doesn't exist in ''Redux'', as Aesop is one of the finalists instead, Sean has another role as one of the members of Merlow's resistance, and Cyrus and Gerald don't appear in ''Redux'' at all.

* EvilTwin: Doopliss naturally, but he also makes evil versions of his opponent's deck. In the original, his deck is made up of evil Amazons, whose attribute and type are changed to Dark and Fiend. In ''Redux'', his deck is focused on using Voltic Bicorn's mill effect. * ExiledFromContinuity: From the looks of things, if recent Shadowchaser spin-offs from other authors are to go by; the original version of the fic itself has been completely removed from the Shadowchaser continuity, with ''Redux'' being the new basis from now on. The fic ''Shadowchasers: Twice-Told Tales'' is a big example of this, as some of its chapters actually involve the ''Redux'' incarnation of the characters from this fic. [[spoiler: Not too mention two characters from that fic are soon to make an appearance that ties in the two together.]]

Zero Context Example and bad grammar.
* BigBad: The Shadow Queen, whom acts as the main villain.

* BlondesAreEvil: The Shadow Queen, whom is not a very nice person.

* CasanovaWannabe: Jackson. He tries, and it doesn't end well for him as he just didn't seem to understand that no means no.
