Added DiffLines:

* XanatosGambit:
**[[spoiler:Contessa]]'s power allows her to employ these with impunity, although she doesn't know anything about the plan other than its end result. [[spoiler:Scion]] also has this power.

* CooldownHug: In [[http://parahumans.wordpress.com/2012/09/29/prey-14-8/ Prey 14.8]], when Skitter is trapped in the [[spoiler:agnosia fog]] and deeply paranoid about trusting anyone, Grue gives her one. [[spoiler:Wait, did we say "Grue"? We meant ''Jack Slash''.]]

* Gayngst: Very deliberately averted. According to WordOfGod, Wildbow made Taylor straight to avoid the "angsty gay character" trope, which he considered overused. This can also be seen in the novel's other gay characters: Legend is HappilyMarried and generally optimistic, [[spoiler:Parian and Foil]] angst a bit but get over it quickly, and [[DepravedBisexual Regent]] isn't prone to angsting in the first place. [[invoked]]

Added DiffLines:

* TheStationsOfTheCanon: The vast majority of Worm fanfics that switch out Taylor's power for something else inevitably have to go through the stations of Taylor being stuck in her locker, going through the motions of testing out her power, finding information about parahumans on PHO, her meeting and subsequent victory over Lung, her recruitment with the Undersiders, the bank robbery, dealing with Coil, [[spoiler:Leviathan's (and later, the Slaughterhouse 9's)]] arrival to Brockton Bay, etc.

Added DiffLines:

* FandomSpecificPlot: 99% of all Worm fanfics involve Taylor obtaining a different power than in canon. This also doubles as an ObviousCrossoverMethod.

* Infodump: Happens a lot since capes tend to be in groups. Also very bad in Endbringer fights for obvious reasons.

Added DiffLines:

* NotQuiteFlight: Played straight with Bitch's dogs. Taylor comments that jumping from building to building on their backs, is "almost flight". Subverted with Flechette's attempts to travel through TheCity, which sadly does not feature an architecture like New York.

* CrypticBackgroundReference: Many are explained, receive interludes, or become the source of later story arcs. Some, like The Sleeper, remain cryptic.
