* AbsurdlySharpBlade: Raphael's knife is seen [[spoiler: cutting through May's arm to the point where it's caked in blood. He then trades it in for a sword that can seal souls.]]

* AlwaysNeedWhatYouGaveUp: What's the best way to make sure the Great Leviathan doesn't become strong? [[spoiler: switch a very powerful card with a fake and carry the real card on you! Yeah...it ends into disaster.]]

* BetaCouple: If there IS a main couple (what with Yami/Yugi and Tea being a focus--somewhat), it would be with May with either Raphael, Kaiba or Mokuba.

* [[CallingTheOldManOut Calling the CEO Out]]: In the anime, Kaiba slams the phone after hearing Yami lose his duel. In the story, [[spoiler: May remarks that Kaiba isn't doing anything and catches his insult in six words.]] --->[[spoiler: May: (to Kaiba) Yami's not the disgrace, you are!]]

* CoolBigSis: Inverted. Mokuba sees May as an older sister--despite him being around 11 or 12, and May being 10. This could be because he's enamored by the adventures she gets to go through.

* CurbStompBattle: Shadow's first duel is against Valon. [[spoiler: It's a 3 turn duel with Valon unable to do anything when Psychic Armor Head--the card he needs the most for his deck--has been removed from play, and Shadow winning.]]

* Determinator: Max and May--despite being the youngest out of the main cast--show great skill in not giving up. It goes to the point that Max's first duel had him win [[spoiler: while he still had 100 lifepoints left.]] and May stood up to [[spoiler: Arkana using her old deck and defeated him.]] ** Mokuba's time to shine was in his first Orichalcos duel. For someone who's never dueled before this story, he [[spoiler: stands up to his opponent--Alister--gives him an amazing speech--and prompts that he will take the direct attack of 11,000 attack points and smile at his face while doing so, determined to make sure that the his loss would not be in vain.]] * DeusExMachina: What turns out to be a blessing in disguise [[spoiler: A fake Winged Dragon of Ra winds up into May and Max's hands]], actually becomes a horrible thing as it unravels everything that came before and after it. Because of this, [[spoiler: May gets horribly beaten and chased for having the real Ra in her possession.]] * DuelsDecideEverything: Averted. Yami's duel with Yugi only makes May lose trust with Ironheart and Chris, stating that they had no idea how much it hurt Yami.

* DisproportionateRetribution: [[spoiler: Shadow inflicts punishment to Valon this way. Valon also does this when he punches and attacks May for winning against Mai in an Orichalcos duel. Shadow's punishment involves calling out the names of the Armor cards in Valon's deck, while Valon feels pain the particular area. After she goes through every monster, she stabs his heart with a dagger...a dagger that takes people into their worst fears.]] * EarnYourHappyEnding: Oh boy... May, Max and Mokuba have their work cut out for them.

May, Max and Mokuba have their work cut out for them.For your information, May's ''ten''.]]

* FauxActionGirl: Inverted. May is told to run away when she says she can handle a duel on her own. The only reason that she doesn't fight is because of many things. [[spoiler: First off, she has the Winged Dragon of Ra on her, and that's what's needed to strengthen Leviathan. Second, Raphael wants her and she needs to run off before he does something...awful to her. Last, even if she is the Goddess of Joy, she has no magic power that she can use to defend herself.]] * FeatherMotif: Played straight with May and Mai. While Mai is the [[BrokenBird Broken Harpie]] with her Harpie Ladies, May also has feathered friends. One of her dark monsters is Dark Horus who sports black feathery wings, and she also has her Altaria, with white cloudy feather wings. Dark Horus represents that even when using Dark Monsters she can still be good, Altaria represents her gentle spirit as the Goddess of Joy.

* ForcedToWatch: Max and Mokuba aren't forced to watch May being tortured, but they're being forced to watch May break down from her wounds and torture. * {{Foreshadowing}}: May falls off of the scaffolding of a building in chapter 4 by Raphael. In "Wrath of a Goddess"--14 chapters later--[[spoiler: the same thing happens, except there's an explosion this time. In both times, her Altaria saves her from becoming a bloody pulp.]] * FourIsDeath: All over the place. Many of May's Dark Monsters are Level Four, she has four main duels [[spoiler: before the explosion at Paradius]], Max won four duels--[[spoiler: the fifth duel had him lose his soul]]--Mokuba has also won four duels [[spoiler: before he lost all of his monsters and Khonsu four chapters later]], [[spoiler: four duels with revived Orichalcos warriors appear between chapters 24 and 28 (four chapters]], etc.

* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Either Raphael--or Kaiba--being the huge guy, and May being the tiny girl.

* ImaginaryFriend: Atem notes that he and the others were so real to May, that she was willing to use a ritual--at age ''7'' to make them become real. Said ritual involved cutting her arms and using her blood. No wonder the mom didn't like it. One has to wonder what May's mental state was at the time.

Deconstruction is not pain and tragedy. What you're lookign for is Played for drama
So begins the story's first three chapters. Even with a common crossover idea, Green Phantom Queen blends what she knows about the Pokémon world with the Duel Monsters of Yu-Gi-Oh! to create a dark crossover. There are also many common themes that are crossed in the story ranging from [[DarkisNotEvil doing evil for good]], [[LightisNotGood doing good but not good]] and [[CycleofRevenge revenge before reason]] to [[EasilyForgiven letting bygones be bygones]], [[StandYourGround standing up for your rights]] and [[ScrewDestiny fighting opposing fate]]. This crossover is a Deconstruction on the crossover genre and how the story line would change to benefit them for better or worse. However, this story is somewhat [[DarkerandEdgier dark]] once you get past the halfway mark. Do not expect the rules of the Pokémon universe to apply to Yu-Gi-Oh! villains that want to steal souls to empower an ancient deity. It soon becomes important for the characters to grow up and face their problems dead on, or else let the world become destroyed.

* AlwaysSaveTheGirl: Subverted. May, being the one captured, saves herself from having her soul taken. [[spoiler: Unfortunately, no one could save her from getting attacked by the Swordsmen of the Orichalcos, nor could they save her from becoming corrupted by the Orichalcos.]]

* BadassDamsel: Let's summarize chapter 18 here: [[spoiler: May attacks the Swordsmen with her Pokemon, demands a duel to bet her livelihood against Mai (and wins), proceeds to use Duel Monster Cards to escape, and taunts the group as she does. Then, she's at the rooftop....and that's where things get worse...]]

[[spoiler: May attacks Unfortunately, no one could save her from getting attacked by the Swordsmen of the Orichalcos, nor could they save her from becoming corrupted by the Orichalcos.]] * DarkerAndEdgier: This story is not sunshine and buttercups.

* TheDarkSide: [[spoiler: May unfortunately givers herself to the Orichalcos because she needed the strength to continue after her vicious pummeling. Subverted because she forces the Orichalcos out of her, if only temporary. Once she gets trapped, she gives in and unleashes her dark side.]]

* DeusExMachina: Deconstructed. What turns out to be a blessing in disguise [[spoiler: A fake Winged Dragon of Ra winds up into May and Max's hands]], actually becomes a horrible thing as it unravels everything that came before and after it. Because of this, [[spoiler: May gets horribly beaten and chased for having the real Ra in her possession.]] * DuelsDecideEverything: Deconstructed. Just because they can decide everything doesn't mean it's successful. Yami's duel with Yugi only makes May lose trust with Ironheart and Chris, stating that they had no idea how much it hurt Yami.

* TheEmpath: May is noted to sense and understand the hearts of evil and can see from their perspective. However, if she doesn't know a lot about a person, she can't really help them. It's also Deconstructed because despite understanding people, she just can't understand how to feel about them since she's so confused about what she's feeling from them.

* GoOutWithASmile: Mokuba does this in chapter 24...[[spoiler: He gets better.]]. Deconstructed because he doesn't realize how his going out is affecting people who care about him, and tearfully cries an "I'm sorry" after it's all over.

* IWantThemAlive: Deconstructed again. The Swordsmen will beat the Chosen into an inch of their lives, but they'll keep them alive long enough for Dartz to take their souls. This also has a bad effect on May, who is in constant worry that the Swordsmen will come out to beat her up. * IWillFindYou: Deconstructed. Raphael becomes obsessed with finding his Guardian of the Sea, to the point that Valon and Alister are actually annoyed by this, his mental state is completely fucked up, and the person he's finding is getting harmed by his thoughts of being together with him.

May, naturally, doesn't understand what is going on and is freaked out at the whole idea. Still, it doesn't stop Raphael from continuing to pursue a lover at least half his age.

* MiseryBuildsCharacter: Deconstructed. Sure the misery that affects the chosen builds character, but it's not the ''correct'' type of character. May's pretty much strained between forgiving people who hurt her, Mokuba blames himself for letting May get hurt, and Max is divided as to how all of this plays out.
