* {{Flanderization}}: Each of the Semes is based on a common badfic depiction of the Organization XIII members. Aku-chan and Xiggy-kun abuse their [[CatchPhrase Catch Phrases]], with Xiggy-kun becoming a literal SurferDude; Marly-Dono is ''ridiculously'' feminine, and obsessed with flowers to the point of having a [[ADateWithRosiePalms private moment]] with a video of a bee pollinating a flower; Demykins is a PsychopathicManchild {{Cloudcuckoolander}}; Zexy-poo is an EmoTeen; [[spoiler: Vexen's Replica]] is a Southern stereotype; and Secks is a literal [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent werewolf]] (at least, a LittleBitBeastly variation, because [[SarcasmMode God forbid he be unpretty]]), among others. In addition, each one is a PrettyBoy, and all of them are gay thanks to the [[YaoiFangirl Grand Master Fangirl]].

* ThirtySuePileup: [[invoked]] Parodied with The City of OC. Nearly ''everyone'' is a Keyblade wielder or prospective Keyblade wielder (including some OCs which actually are Sues). It's to the point that [[JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind Dive into the Heart]] has a ''queue'' and both [[FirstTown Traverse Town and Twilight Town]] are at maximum occupancy. The few that don't have Keyblades are interviewing to join Organization XIII [[spoiler: actually a ploy by the Semes to create more Mary Sues]]. Unfortunately for them, none of them are as strong as the real thing.

The DEM engines.engines, literal engines that create deus ex machinae, which the Nobodies repurposed for a specific gummi ship because it made things too easy, and said gummi ship just happens to be the one our heroes use to journey into Fandom Hearts.

A good portion of the worlds in Fandom Hearts the protagonists visit [[InvokedTrope invoke]] the extremes of fanfiction genres for humor.humor.
** All of the Semes the Nobodies come across invoke the fandom stereotypes everyone uses for each Nobody in fanfiction.
*** In the first world, Xigbar is a TotallyRadical SurferDude, Axel is a slick snarker [[CatchPhrase who says "Got it memorized?" after every line of dialogue.]]
*** The second world features Marluxia as a CampGay creep who pleasures himself to a bee pollinating a flower. Larxene, being a woman and lacking... you know, doesn't get directly invoked and instead is used to portray the "I can make a Nobody love me!" trope, though in the previous world, that world's invocation of Larxene plays up the AlphaBitch qualities to the maximum.
*** The third world plays up Luxord's portrayal of a pimping gangsta all about the munny, and turn Sa&iumlaut;x's obsession with the moon into making him a (wannabe) vampire. They also throw Vexen as an uberwhite cowboy, but this only tips off the protagonists that it isn't actually Vexen's Seme, as he is never portrayed as such.
*** The fourth world has Zexion being a massive EmoKid in his teen-aged years, and Demyx as a ManChild with the attention span of a teaspoon as the representation for a CrackFic.
*** Finally, there's Xemnas, playing up the unfortunate anagram of his name, by making him all about sexualization and innuendo. And evil henchman tropes.
