** Liz's mom was... er, [[StopHelpingMe in her life]], so to speak, but she was pretty messed up and was often put into a mental institution by the court system whenever she was arrested again for some kind of petty crime.

* LighterAndSofter: The ''Darkest Powers'' series is the young adult spinoff to ''Literature/TheOtherworld'' series and shares its universe. It is ''slightly'' toned down for a teenage audience. The sexual elements have been removed, as have profanity, but it's still rather violent.

* BewareTheNiceOnes: Chloe. Oh, and how. ''The Reckoning'' cements this, because when Chloe's other options are taken away from her and she's [[TheyWouldCutYouUp facing a short and painful future]], she takes the only path left to her. [[spoiler:After a guard is killed by Diane Enright (who framed her daughter for it) and Chloe is taken to a different room and imprisoned, she raises the guard from the dead and forces him to walk to her room and open the door. She releases his soul back to the afterlife as quickly as she can... But then she makes a deal with the demi-demon, Diriel, that is bound to the building. Chloe releases Diriel, and transfers her to the guard's body, so Diriel can help her escape]].

* BigBadassWolf: Derek. Obviously.
** Liam and Ramon also fit this trope, with Liam being a monster and Ramon being [[strike:practically a saint in comparison]] ''slightly'' less of a monster.



* DealWithTheDevil: Chloe [[spoiler:makes a deal with Diriel (the female demi-demon) in ''The Reckoning'' and ends up freeing her in exchange for her help escaping the Edison Group's facility]]. Subverted in that [[spoiler:Diriel honestly seemed to like Chloe, and didn't try to find loopholes in the terms of their deal. When her Lord, a full demon, appeared, she might even have been trying to protect Chloe from him by telling him that Chloe is weak and not worthy of his notice. She also apologized to Chloe when the full demon called her back before she could complete their bargain]].

* GeneticEngineeringIsTheNewNuke: Chloe and Tori, whose [[OffTheScale power levels are]] '''''[[MemeticMutation over NINE THOUSAAAAAAAAND!!!]]'''''
** To get a better idea of how ridiculously strong Chloe is, in ''The Reckoning'', Chloe is taken to a graveyard for some lessons from an adult necromancer. When trying to summon a ghost, Chloe accidentally [[spoiler: rips open the earth itself, summoning several undead animals and at least one human zombie. Raising the dead isn't something a necromancer is supposed to be capable of doing until he or she has had a few years of training, at least, and even then only with the help of a ritual. Chloe just raised several dead. ''Accidentally.'']]

* RomanticRunnerUp: [[spoiler:Simon, although he avoids the general cliche of this trope by being a guy that ''lots'' of girls would love to date, while Derek, who actually ''gets'' the girl... yeah, not so much with the 'girls would love to date him']].
** Try telling that to the fangirls.

girl is more YMMV]].
*SavageWolves: Liam and Ramon are wolf creatures; Liam is a monster and Ramon is [[strike:practically a saint in comparison]] ''slightly'' less of a monster.



* SpeechImpediment: Chloe has a stutter. She can mostly keep it under control unless she's nervous or frightened. After all of the crap she's been through, she's become [[ProperlyParanoid accustomed enough]] [[NervesOfSteel to horrible situations]] that her stutter doesn't crop up as often as it used to. It's still there, though.

* TallDarkAndSnarky: The fans view Derek as this, ''for sure''. And Simon in canon too, just without the "dark" part - not only is he legitimately good-looking and of a decent height, the whole reason he was attacked by those three guys in ''Dangerous'' was because his snark owned theirs. Of course, [[spoiler: all of this ''still'' wasn't enough to allow him to score the girl in the end.]]

* UpToEleven: Derek's instinctive need to protect his "pack". Chloe's powers may be Up To Twelve.



* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: Derek, sadly. As a werewolf, he's automatically considered by most supernaturals to be one screw up away from turning pure evil -- which is, unfortunately, a stereotype that most werewolves fulfill -- or, at the very least, a dangerous animal to be avoided with great prejudice, and killed if necessary.

Added DiffLines:

* RichBitch: Refreshingly averted with Chloe who just takes some things for granted. After learning about this trait she fixes it as fast as possible. Tori is much closer to this trope.
