* BadAss: Every member of the Electroclan.



* DivergentCharacterEvolution: Book 1 Jack and Wade were basically the same person with different names. Flash forward to Book 2 where Jack is a BoisterousBruiser and BadAss while Wade gradually becomes the LovableCoward.

** A good portion of ''Fall of Hades'' was centered around Welch's backstory.



** Prisoner of Cell 25: Despite [[spoiler: shutting down the academy and making new allies in the form of Hatch's glows, Hatch got away and Michael's mother was [[YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle in another Elgen compound]].

** Tanner, who suffers from PTSD from being forced to take down planes.



** But then book 5 reveals [[spoiler: that while the hideout was attacked, he lied about the casualties in case the Elgen were wiretapping]].



* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Michael and Ostin would say "Bones" as a catchphrase for when something cool happened to them. After book 2, that phrase seems to have been dropped. The characters also tended to use more childish insults towards their enemies. As the series progressed, there would be more PG-level profanity. In the first book, Jack was seen smoking a cigarette. However, since then, he's never been mentioned smoking.



*** Then finalized in book 6, along with [[spoiler: Tara and even Torstyn]].



* MistreatmentInducedBetrayal: The other cause of [[spoiler: Nichelle's HeelFaceTurn]].

to:

* MistreatmentInducedBetrayal: The other cause of [[spoiler: Nichelle's HeelFaceTurn]]. Also for [[spoiler: Quentin, Tara, and Torstyn's]].



* ParentalSubstitute: Jack comes to see Gervaso as one.

to:

* ParentalSubstitute: Jack comes to see Gervaso as one. Tanner seemed to look at Michael's mother as this as well.


Added DiffLines:

* TokenEvilTeammate: If [[spoiler: Torstyn]] still has is sadistic personality in book 7, he may count as this for the Electorclan.
* TokenGoodTeammate: Welch seems to have been this for the Elgen Guard. Grace, Tessa, and Tanner were this for Hatch's Glows since they betrayed him on their own volition rather than after fighting Michael.

* BookWorm: Ostin.

to:

* BoltOfDivineRetribution: Something very reminiscent of this happens at the end of book 6 when [[spoiler:Michael absorbs a blast of lightning, converting over a billion volts of electricity into an explosion similar to a nuclear blast. What makes it retributive is the fact that it is used to deal a heavy blow to Hatch.]]
* BookWorm: Ostin.

** [[spoiler: Quentin]] in book 5. Even more so in book 6. [[spoiler: Cell 25 made him take a level in humility compared to his previous JerkAss behavior.]]

** ''Mihcael Vey: Fall of Hades'', released in 2016.



** Book 6 ends with [[spoiler: The Electroclan stealing the Juole while Michael sacrifices himself to hold back Hatch's mooks, seemingly being killed by lightning.]]



* ETuBrute: [[spoiler: Gervaso's friend J.D. sells the Electroclan and Welch out to Hatch for the reward in book 6. Thankfully for the heroes (but unfortunately for J.D.), they figure out in time.]]



* ImAHumanitarian: Discussed from book 3 onward. Hatch mentions an anecdote about a new ruler eating his rival after [[spoiler: his overthrow of Schema in ''Battle of the Ampere.'' Then in book 6 [[spoiler: the Electroclan learns that he actually intends to do this to Michael since guns and being fed to the rats cannot kill him.'']]



* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler: Wade]].

* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler: Wade]].Wade]] in book 3.

** Scratch that Torstyn to a horrifying degree. [[spoiler: And then book 6 happened]].


Added DiffLines:

** And then ''Fall of Hades throws [[spoiler: Cassie, a previously unknown glow working for the resistance]] shows up. Taylor can tell right from the start that she's attracted to Michael.


Added DiffLines:

* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: Michael typically develops one or two new abilities per book, justified by the fact that both Ostin and Elgen doctors not that his electricity is growing.
** Taylor begins DreamingOfThingsToCome in book 6, although not much is made of it and she does what she can to keep it a secret, she doesn't really understand it herself, and to avoid ProphecyTwist.


Added DiffLines:

* ParentalSubstitute: Jack comes to see Gervaso as one.


Added DiffLines:

* VillainEpisode: There are several chapters from book 2 onwards from the point of view of the villains, although only the Elgen Guard Welch has chapters specifically focused on his backstory in book 6.


Added DiffLines:

** Fall of Hades- [[spoiler: The Electroclan manage to steal the Joule, but the rest of the group is trapped on the eponymous island and surrounded by Elgen soldiers. Michael, who has been getting steadily more powerful as the series goes on, climbs to the top of a radio tower where he ''channels lightning to take out the Elgen army and dies in the process!!]]

* UnderhandedHero: In their efforts to save the world from the villainous Dr. Hatch, the Electroclan has resorted to tactics such as manipulation, blackmail, and threats, [[HoistByHisOwnPetard which are preferred tactics of Hatch himself]]. However, they only do these things when necessary, and on a ''much'' smaller scale than Hatch does. (It's also worth noting that most of the people that they do this to are [[AssholeVictim working for Hatch]].)
