* CombatPragmatist: The Unseelie are one of the worst examples. The pretty much spit on the Great Treaty for years, meaning the Shadowchasers had to use force against the joystealers in the long ongoing campaign to liberate the eoshee. However, they pretty much embraced the concept of using Duel Monsters as a form of combat when Jalal proposed using it to solve disputes; up to that point, Shadowchasers had a big advantage in any physical confrontation, meaning the change only benefitted them. (Of course, in general, they don't seem to think rules matter at all, other than the Rule of the Jungle.)

* TheFairFolk: The Trope as a whole is kind of Zigzagged. Fairies are called fey races, and while most break the modern interpretation of them, they seem to span the entire moral and ethical spectrum. A few of the common themes of this Trope are mentioned (they ''used'' to abduct mortals in order to use tissue to build special golems, but once they found out that they could buy teeth from children for relatively cheap, they stopped doing so and started using tooth fairies.) Some fairies are, indeed evil, but many are good (the crisis with the eoshee is proof of this), and the FlyingDutchman, seen in ''Torment'', is also one of them. Also, the Feywild is mentioned - and visited - in ''Power Primordial'', an alternate world where powerful nobles of the fey race reside. They don't encourage visitors, at least not on a regular basis.
* FantasticRacism: Some Shadowkind accuse Jalal and the Shadowchasers as this. Jalal is attacked mercilessly by Shadow-exclusive supermarket tabloids on this and other issues, and has claimed that such slander has been directed against him since written periodicals first became popular.

Jalal is attacked mercilessly by Shadow-exclusive supermarket tabloids on this and other issues, and has claimed that such slander has been directed against him since written periodicals first became popular. (It's often brought up by Jalal himself that in most realities, the method of dealing with races that consider humanity an enemy is outright genocide.)



* GargleBlaster: Reptilian Shadowkind like the ophidia drink something called viperwine, a whiskey made from the venom of the Indian viper. This is actually lethal to any non-reptile who drinks it without taking an antidote. Shadowkind who sell liquor require a special license to sell it, which the Shadowchasers are in charge of issuing.

* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming: The chapters of each fic (except for ''Torment'', ''Soulscape'', and ''Ascension'') are each named after a card in the game, a tradition started in Cyber Commander's previous work, ''Yu-Gi-Oh! Dark Messiah''. Shadowchaser fics from other authors also follow this pattern, with some exceptions.

* {{Immortality}}: Jalal is immortal, and is currently [[Really700YearsOld slightly older than a thousand years old.]] He can be hurt, and there are a few things that could kill him, but it is incredibly difficult. It is not known if he could literally regenerate FromASingleCell, but some have stated that his body could reform from even a small piece of flesh or from burnt ashes.



* MagicalLibrary: Two important ones are mentioned. First there is the Origin Universe, a library that contains near-limitless knowledge. supposedly, it is the size of a world, and exists in a pocket dimension that only Morgana's Kin, who use it as their base of operations, can locate, let alone enter.

* OldShame: A few InUniverse examples. There is an incident revolving an individual named Vladimir Bloodletter, [[spoiler: apparently not only did he and his men murder several Shadowchasers, but he also managed to defeat Jalal in a duel, leaving a blow to Jalal's credibility as a leader and a duelist. While the Shadowchasers were victorious, the incident caused their reputation and credibility to decline in some parts of the Shadowkind community, leading to some attempted revolutions.]] As a result, Shadowchasers refuse to talk about it and use any of Bloodletter's cards. ''Tournament of Shadows'' shows that Jalal ''does not'' like being reminded of it. (The full story will hopefully be revealed in ''FanFic/ShadowchasersCityOfAngels'' being written by a different author, which seems to currently be on hiatus.)

* OddlySmallOrganization: The Knights of Domiel. People who know about them tend to be frightened of them, thinking that they are a legion of widespread and nearly omniponent [[KnightTemplar Knights Templar]]. In truth, as the narrative in ''Torment'' claims, the group has no more than thirty members at one time, and only one base of operations. (They do not enforce their exaggerated reputation, but on the other hand, they don't discourage it either.)

* BeethovenWasAnAlienSpy: Quite a few are revealed throughout the stories. It's revealed in [[Fanfic/{{Shadowchasers}} the original fic]] that Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Edison were aided in their experiments by gremlins and that many of Mozart's contemporaries were vampires. Later, in ''Torment'' it is revealed that Henry VIII was an ImmortalitySeeker who tried to convince Jalal to reveal the secret, and in ''Ascension'', it's revealed that the Old North Church in Boston was chosen for its unique location to house a portal to the holy shrine of Tabjari. The Files have a few as well, revealing, for example, that Wolvercote Cemetery in Oxford is a sacred site protected by four powerful deities (of the elves, dwarves, halflings, ''and'' orcs) due to the numerous spiritual leaders of each race that have come there to pay respects. (Why? That's where J.R.R. Tolkien's grave is.)

''Backwater'' has an odd variation, where a doll golem reveals that Main/TheMuppets are also doll golems. (Whether that means Creator/JimHenson'' was an honest to goodness wizard was not revealed.
