* ButWhatAboutTheAstronauts: Averted, in that there is barely any mention of off-Earth assets throughout the entire series. By the last book, God has encased the Earth in an ice canopy, effectively preventing conventional spaceflight. [[{{FixFic}} Unconventional spaceflight, however...]]



* FixFic: [[http://exharpazo.blogspot.com/ Right Behind]] has a whole community of them. There's even a [[FanFic/LeftBeyond Roleplaying Game]].



%%* HateFic: ''Right Behind'' and its sequel ''Supergeddon''. For the movies, ''Rapture-Palooza'' definitely counts.



* [[RecruitTeenagersWithAttitude Recruit Under-100ers With Attitude]]: The members of The Other Light are all physically teenagers and young adults recruiting others of the same age range.

* TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture: No specific year is given, emphasizing the "It could happen any minute" message. The first few books are [[{{Zeerust}} still dated by the lack of cell phones and widespread internet access]], though.

* PokeThePoodle: While Nicolae Carpathia in the LeftBehind books does eventually commit evil such as ordering London nuked and demanding the executions of those who refuse to worship him as god, he gets only passing mention to such atrocities and instead focus on his PokeThePoodle moments such as him dating the hero's former love interest and treating her with respect, or "forgetting" Rayford's new wife's name. As Fred Clark on his Slacktivist page states:

* EuphemismBuster: In ''The Remnant'', when Steve Plank as Pinkerton Stephens turns down taking the MarkOfTheBeast and accepts the alternative of death, the Global Community staff person working at the mark application site was just about to refer to the guillotine as the "loyalty enforcement facilitator" when Steve interrupts and refers to it as "the guillotine".

* MiracleFood: God rains down manna for the people of Israel to eat during their time in Petra in the last half of the Tribulation. In ''Glorious Appearing'', He also provides so much meat for Ezer Borstein to butcher that he's basically giving it away free of charge.

** In ''Soul Harvest'', Rayford Steele utters several of these upon discovering Amanda's body.
** In ''Glorious Appearing'', Leon Fortunato utters this (half-screaming, half-crying, actually) as he is hauled to the pit which will send him and Carpathia to the Lake of Fire.

* CozyCatastrophe: Crashed airlines, mass disappearances, and political upheaval ''everywhere'', but the trash is still getting collected, [[TheTrainsRunOnTime airline flights are uninterrupted]], and it's safe to walk the streets at night.

* LikeRealityUnlessNoted: ZigZaggingTrope. Much of the action in the books operates like reality, but sometimes ignores other postulates the book has already set up which would affect them. For example, the TrainsRunOnTime despite the global rapture after a very brief initial panic, or the AntiChrist takes control of all world media, business, and nations, yet these things still seem to run as though they were still independent organizations.
