* DependingOnTheWriter: Some of the article styles change depending on the author or when in the magazine's run they appear. For example, the earliest "Ecology" articles were stylized as stories of a character's encounter with a particular creature, with some details woven into the story and others reduced to FootnoteFever. Then it changed over to feature a core cast of characters, in the form of a greedy, ambitious and somewhat incompetent mage's guild who hunted monsters for profit. And then finally it changed to a more straightforward and scholarly dossier approach -- although not without some exceptions, like the gag "Ecology of the Adventurer" or the "Ecology of the Isle of Dread" (which was depicted as an InUniverse explorer's journal).


Added DiffLines:

* OurMonstersAreWeirder: Zigzagged; the long-running "Ecology of the (X)" series was devoted to exploring the particular quirks, aspects and details of various monsters in greater detail, which is technically subverting the trope... only to then play it straight with how weird some of those aspects could be. For example, the Common and Noble Lamias are linked by BizarreAlienReproduction; the male and female [[SnakePeople serpent-taur]] Nobles can produce more of their own kind through InterspeciesRomance with humans, but mating with each other produces Common Lamias... which are [[OurCentaursAreDifferent lioness/she-goat/doe/female antelope-taurs]] who are {{hermaphrodite}}s, having the upper torsos of women and both sets of sexual organs. Common Lamias can then go on to either mate with humans (more Commoners) or mate with each other to produce the sterile sa'irs, which [[MixAndMatchCritters have the forequarters of a lion and the hindquarters & horns of a goat]] and are almost animalistic in intelligence.

** One of the {{Non Player Character}}s has no name. He has a cruel mouth, makes subtle puns, and females will be attracted to him. He uses cigarettes with three gold bands and owns a Bentley automobile, and the British Secret Service will pay an $11,000 reward if the {{PC}}s rescue him. In short he's the literary Literature/JamesBond.

* InTheFutureWeStillHaveRoombas: TSR's ''TabletopGame/TopSecret'' espionage RPG, ''Magazine/{{Dragon}}'' magazine #48 adventure "Dr. Yes: The Floating Island Mission". The enemy facility has small robots called "Bernies" that can act as vacuum cleaners (and trash compactors, because they compress the trash they pick up), They also mop and wax the floor as they pass over it. When one encounters a trail of debris (dirt, water, blood, etc.) it will follow it to its source, cleaning as it goes.
