''Lost Girl'' is a 2010- Showcase television series that revolves around Bo, a young woman with the ability to control men and women through her touch and suck the life from them with a kiss. She is a succubus, and one of the Fae, a group made up of several races of supernatural entities separated into two sides: Light and Dark. Rather than choosing a side, Bo decides to strike out on her own and learn about her past with the help of a streetwise sidekick named Kenzi, and a Fae police detective named Dyson.

Not to be confused with the graphic novel ''Comicbook/LostGirls'' or the short story ''Literature/LostGirls''.
----
!! This show provides examples of:
* AbsurdlySpaciousSewer: In the webcomic at least.
* AbusiveParents: Kenzi's stepfather is said to have locked her in a closet for as little as laughing too loud, and generally made her childhood miserable enough that she came close on several occasions to summoning Baba Yaga to kill him.
* ActionGirl: Bo has graduated to this status by the start of season 2.
* {{Adorkable}}: Lauren. Murmuring "isotopes" in her sleep? D'awwwwwww.
* AllMythsAreTrue: All myths are fae. Including Phoenixes and Unicorns.
* AmateurSleuth: Bo and Kenzi
* TheArtfulDodger: Kenzi
* AuraVision: Bo, according to "I Fought the Fae (And The Fae Won)". This is how she's able to detect a character with {{Invisibility}}.
* {{Autocannibalism}}: Gary, a Fae butcher, from "Death Didn't Become Her":
-->'''Gary''': You know what they say-- sometimes a flesh-eater is just too tired to get out of bed, go to the fridge, know what I mean? ''[bites off his own index finger]''
* BabaYaga: Kenzi drunkenly invokes her to put a curse on Dyson.
* BadassNormal: Kenzi. In a series of supernaturals who can break her physically without trying and mentally with a glance, she manages to hold her own and repeatedly save Bo from other Fae.
** Although the fae tend to dismiss humans as a threat, a determined human can seriously hurt and/or kill a fae.
* BadPowersGoodPeople: Corpse-eaters and harpies are numbered among the Light fae. The corpse-eaters, known as Aswang, are portrayed as saintly old women who consume the unloved and diseased dead.
** Also Bo herself, with the supernaturally seductive touch and life draining kiss of death is one of the most moral characters in the show.
* BatmanGambit: [[spoiler: The Morrigan's assistant.]]
* BeingTorturedMakesYouEvil: [[spoiler: Bo's mother.]]
* BerserkButton: Threatening to kill and eat Lauren is not a good idea around Bo.
* BetterToDieThanBeKilled: Or worse. So [[spoiler: The Morrigan's assistant]] graphically commits suicide when discovered.
* BettyAndVeronica: Dyson and Lauren. Initially with safe, helpful Lauren as Betty and dangerous, smouldering Dyson as Veronica.[[spoiler: As their motivations are uncovered over the course of the season, things become more blurry.]]
* BiTheWay: Bo.
* BigDamnHeroes: Bo and Kenzi to ''Vex'' of all people. And then moments later he has to save Bo from being killed.
* BikiniBar: Bo goes undercover in a high-class strip club during a job.
* BlackAndGrayMorality: The fae world is divided between the Light fae, who make some token efforts to avoid being completely SelfishEvil, and the Dark fae, who... really, really don't. The more heroic characters try to hold themselves to a higher standard, but even they are all a bit morally ambiguous.
* BlackBestFriend: Hale to both Dyson and Kenzi.
* BlessedWithSuck: Baku have incredible powers to cure disease. Unfortunately, obtaining this curative property requires killing and skinning them.
* BloodKnight: Dyson's old pack seemed to have been composed of those. They loved to fight and did not care who their king sent them against or why.
* BloodMagic: The Blood King is able to alter reality through inscriptions written in his own blood.
* BloodSport: A fae running a MMA gym starts running underground fights that he broadcasts over the internet to paying spectators. When his human champion proves to be too good for other human fighters, he starts pitting him against fae fighters like Ogres and [[MadeOfIron Obsidians]]. None of the fae seem too concerned that a human could easily be killed in such a matchup.
* BlueBlood: The noble families: five for the humans, and five for the fae. And then there's the mythic Blood King himself.
* BondageIsBad: Vex, one of the darkest characters in the show, is shown in indulging in it.
* BountyHunter: One shows up in "Original Skin" hunting an escaped Dark Fae mental patient.
* BowChickaWowWow: (One of) Kenzi's way(s) to describe Bo's side activities.
* BrilliantButLazy: Kenzi, who absolutely refuses to have a proper job.
* ByTheEyesOftheBlind: Lightning birds can only be seen by human females.
* CainAndAbel: Liam takes out a hit on his brother due to a childhood grudge. [[spoiler: Subverted when he calls off the hit after his Dad admits he was the one who wronged him.]]
* CanadaEh: Averted. It's not explicitly stated that the series takes place in Toronto (where it is filmed), but there are a few hints. Check the currency...
** When street intersections are mentioned, we get things like "University and Dunkirk"
** The one cop-shop we hear mentioned is not "39th Precinct", but rather "39 Division".
** One episode showed a realtor's sign on the lawn of a house; the phone number had a 416 (Toronto) area code.
** The CanadianAccents are a bit of a giveaway.
** The CN Tower is clearly visible in several shots.
* CartwrightCurse: Bo's power is to suck the life out of her partners.
* TheCasanova: Dyson. Unless cursed.
* ChronicHeroSyndrome: Bo has a case of it, as when she won't give up on a investigation simple once she's found the person she's looking for- she also has to ensure they aren't it/don't get into any more trouble.
* ColorCodedforYourConvenience: Light fay tend to wear white grey or beige. Dark fey tend to wear black.
* ConversedTrope: from the season 2 premiere:
-->'''Bo''':Guy disappears for 3 weeks and leaves you hanging, usually the girl gets to be the pissy one, yes?
-->'''Kenzi''':That is how I've come to understand things from my education in [[RomCom romantic comedies]], yes. Also, girls with glasses are way smart and [[CuteClumsyGirl being klutzy is adorable]].
%%eventually pothole "girls with glasses are way smart" to Brainy Specs once TRS is finished cleaning up the glasses tropes
* CoolOldGuy: Trick.
* CopBoyfriend: Dyson
* CreepyChild: The little girl who keeps appearing to Bo in the season 2 premiere. She later reveals herself as the Nain Rouge, a harbinger of doom.
* CulturalPosturing: All the Fae (except Bo, Trick and Dyson) seem to look down on humans. Underfae don't get much respect either.
* {{Curse}}: Used a few times such as when Kenzi invokes the Baba Yaga to inflict one on Dyson. [[spoiler: Lauren's girlfriend Natalia turns out be under once hence her coma.]]
* CursedWithAwesome: Kenzi certainly thinks Bo's powers are cool. Bo's not so sure.
* DamselInDistress: Kenzi when captured by the BabaYaga.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Dark Fae definitely have worse policies when it comes to humans, and they are the blacker morality compared to the Light, but, just as we see rather evil-acting Light Fae, some Dark Fae are rather pleasant and don't really show any "evil" traits.
* DeadpanSnarker: Kenzi, regularly. Other characters also chip in.
* DeusSexMachina: Sexual contact can heal a succubus, at the expense of her partner. She can also inject a partner with "sexual chi", partially healing them.
** The BOH-see ahn Ta-LAHV, a mystical ritual binding the Light Fae to a piece of land, requires the Ash to have sex with the AnthropomorphicPersonification of the land, thereby consummating a mystical "marriage" to it. Furthermore, the ritual is powered by sexual energy siphoned from the surrounding crowd. This is apparently a common feature of Fae and pagan rituals.
* DirtyCop: Dyson and Hale [[PlayingWithATrope play with this]]. While they take the "to serve and protect" part of their jobs seriously, they are primarily concerned with covering up evidence of fae activities.
* DistractedByTheSexy: Effectively Bo's superpower.
* DominoRevelation
* DreamStealer: The baku (from Japanese mythology), a heroic version who eat bad dreams.
* DreamWeaver: The mares, who purposefully give people and fae nightmares in order to feed off their fae.
* DutchAngle: Done in the episode "Arachnofaebia" to show the fear and increasing insanity of the victims of the MonsterOfTheWeek.
* EarnYourHappyEnding: Invoked by Kenzi when she tells Bo to fight for Dyson, Lauren and her overall happiness.
* EatingTheEyeCandy: Kenzi when Hale takes off his shirt.
* EleventhHourSuperpower: When Lauren is threatened by the lich and his minions, combined with a side order of ThePowerOfLove. Bo doesn't remember what she did or how she did it but there were elements of GodSaveUsFromTheQueen at that point.
* EmbarrassingMiddleName: Det. Hale. His full name & title: Baronet William Haley Francoise Santiago.
* EmbarrassingNickname: Kenzi used to be known as "Meow Meow" on the street. One of her friends was [[{{Bambi}} "Thumper"]].
* EmotionEater:
** The Djieiene "psychically feeds off the flood of adrenalized pheremones" of the people it drives into homicidal paranoia.
** Morraghs feed on rage.
** Mares feed on the fear generated by nightmares.
* EnthrallingSiren: Det. Hale
* EstrogenBrigadeBait: Dyson, what with the whole shapeshifters don't need shirts thing. Hale's not bad looking either.
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: Everyone's hot for Bo. It probably comes with being a Succubus.
** Same with Sherri and her fellow selkie strippers in "Fae Gone Wild", who have Kenzi questioning her sexuality.
* EvilBrit: Vex.
* TheFairFolk: The Light and the Dark Fae.
* FalseFriend: [[spoiler: Cayden]] turns out to be one for Dyson.
* FilmNoir: The entire series is dark lit, and often takes place in underground bars and abandoned buildings or an AbandonedWarehouse. The protaganist is an BadassLongcoat AntiHero FemmeFatale PrivateDetective who deals with TheMafia, fae style. It even comes with FlashForward and FlashBack.
* {{Fingore}}:
** Vex forces Siegfried to stick his hand down a sink trash disposal.
** Bo and Dyson question a fae who recently lost a finger. When they ask how he lost it, he bites off another of his fingers to demonstrate. He likes to snack and the fingers apparently grow back.
* FiveManBand: Generally the crew that gets together to solve the MysteryOfTheWeek.
** TheHero: Bo
** TheLancer: Kenzi
** TheBigGuy: Dyson
** TheChick: Lauren
** TheSmartGuy: Trick or Lauren. Trick for fae knowledge, Lauren for science/medical knowledge.
** TheSixthRanger: Hale
* ForcedPrizeFight: The pilot episode
* ForScience: Lauren's reason for working with the Fae.
* FreakyFridayFlip: Most of the main characters in "Original Skin" switch bodies. Kenzi in Dyson is probably the CrowningMomentOfFunny. Similar to ''{{Farscape}}'', they have name tags to distinguish everyone
* FriendsWithBenefits: Bo and Dyson tried to be this in the first season.
* GreenThumb: Landwights.
* GoshDangItToHeck: Averted. Kenzi's has no problem swearing, and Showcase has no problem airing it.
* GoodPowersBadPeople: The landwights are nature Fae who bring amazing good fortune to anyone who eats the plants that grow on their land. The Dark Fae landwight seen in the show, however, is happy to use humans as plant food.
* GunsAreUseless: Averted. Fae aren't much more immune to bullets than the typical human, and Dyson coup-de-graces several with his service piece.
* GutturalGrowler: The Ash. It's almost "Christian Bale"-esque {{Narm}}
* HalfHumanHybrid: Averted. Offspring of human and Fae are totally human.
* HappinessInSlavery: Lauren is the property of the Ash, leader of the light fae, but is generally content with her lot in life. She finds her scientific research into fae physiology to be intellectually rewarding, and her medical expertise, and the fact that she is owned by the leader of the light fae, gives her a fair amount of prestige and influence among the light fae. She is unmistakably a slave, however. [[spoiler:The happiness part of the trope may be in decline under the new Ash]].
* HatePlague: Spread by the Djieiene.
* HealingFactor: Dyson. What makes him suitable feeding material for Bo. Also the reason she uses his friend Cayden, also a werewolf.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: Bo and Kenzi, in an example of what could ironically be called "playing it extra straight". Sure, Bo is not exactly heterosexual, but they manage to subvert the LesYay precisely because of that: If there was anything more than friendship between Bo and Kenzi, on this show it would be main text. Nevertheless, the "Same Gender, Always Together" catchphrase certainly applies.
* [[HoistByHisOwnPetard Hoist By Her Own Petard]]: Baba Yaga is knocked into the very furnace she uses to cook nubile young girls. This is simultaneously an instance of TheDogBitesBack, as the one who knocks her in is her mistreated pet domovoi.
* HornyDevils: The protagonist [[spoiler: and her biological mother.]]
* HotScientist/ HospitalHottie: Lauren, doctor/scientist for the Light Fae.
* HuntingTheMostDangerousGame: the Stag Hunt.
* [[spoiler: {{Kappa}}]]: The villain Fae of episode 3.
* ImAHumanitarian:
** Kenzi, but it was an accident.
** Baba Yaga
** Lichs
* IDidWhatIHadToDo: Justification for many villains including the one in the season 2 opener.
* {{Invisibility}}: Hamish's ability. Manifests as type 2 VisibleInvisibility when fading in and out.
* ItTastesLikeFeet: Averted. Foot soup actually tastes pretty good.
* KillItWithFire: Bo when hunting an underfae in season 2 Hale however prefers [[MoreDakka a minigun]]
* KingIncognito: [[spoiler: Trick is the Blood King of the Fae.]]
* ALoadOfBull: [[spoiler:In the second webcomic Hale and Dyson track a Minotaur in the sewers]]
* LifeEnergy: What Bo feeds on.
* LightIsNotGood: The Light Fae seem just as dangerous and manipulative as the Dark ones.
* LipstickLesbian: Lauren (or Lipstick Bisexual, we don't yet know).
* LittlePeopleAreSurreal: Averted. Trick's being much smaller than the rest of the cast is unremarked upon, and when another little person figures into the plot, it turns out he's related to Trick. It seems to be just another Fae marker for that particular species.
* LocalHangout: Trick's bar, populated only by fae ([[AndZoidberg and Kenzi]]).
* LoopholeAbuse: "nothing in the rules about bringing the stag BackFromTheDead".
* {{Lzherusskie}}: Averted. Ksenia Solo is from Latvia.
* MagicPants: Aversion with Dyson. Kenzi actually picks up his pants post-transformation, explaining where he recovers them from. I guess he didn't have time to put the rest of his clothes on...
* MakeMeWannaShout: Sirens like Detective Hale.
* MarionetteMaster: Lichs, of dead people raised back to life.
* MeaningfulName: "Bo" sounds like "Beau", which means beauty.
** It may also be intended to be a backhanded reference to Little Bo Peep, only in this case Bo has lost her family and not her sheep.
** A title rather than a name, but the leader of the Dark Fae is given the title of "The Morrigan" which refers to the Celtic Goddess of war and strife. It translates as "phantom queen" or "great queen".
** When a fae reach a high enough political position, they assume the traditional title of the position as their name. So if a fae is only refered by his/her title, it means that you are dealing with someone really powerful.
* MindControl: Several types of Fae have some form of this power. The character Vex, who is a type of Fae called a Mesmer, can turn pretty much anyone into one of his PeoplePuppets. Bo can do this at a CharmPerson level using her succubus powers of attraction, while older, more experienced succubi [[spoiler: such as Saskia/Aife]] can enslave people to the point of creating a small army of enthralled humans who are willing to die for them.
* MsFanservice: Again, the protagonist.
** And the Sidekick. And the [[HelloNurse Hot Doctor]]. And TheDragon of the Dark Fae. Almost every female character we see has cleavage... the whole show runs on FanService.
* MonsterOfTheWeek
* MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily: Morraghs.
* MuggingTheMonster: Any human trying to attack fae will usually end up in this situation.
** A rapist going after Bo in the pilot episode did not stand a chance and was not really mourned.
** Even fae tend to underestimate Bo's power.
* MuggleBestFriend: Kenzi, the only non-fae in the main cast.
* TheMuse: The Morrigan is a type of muse-fae who feeds on driving artists she gets involved with insane.
* MyBelovedSmother: The Glaive has very strict instructions on what her daugher cannot do when she is out. They eliminate any 'fun' activities a young woman might want to to indulge in. Turns out some of them are actually quite reasonable considering the fae's nature. [[spoiler: Drinking coffee stops her heart.]]
* MysteryOfTheWeek
* NewOldFlame: Kiara, for Dyson. Or at least someone he cared deeply for in a romantic sense even if they weren't in a relationship in the past.
* NiceHat: Hale has one.
* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: If you don't do anything after invoking Baba Yaga to curse your ex, you'll be fine. If you have second thoughts and want the curse removed, Baba Yaga will take you as a slave and eventually eat you.
* NoOntologicalInertia: the Djieine's venom instantly disappears from its victims' bodies as soon as its heart is killed. The justification for this has something to do with magnetic fields.
* OccultDetective: Bo is one of the few female versions of this trope.
* OurFairiesAreDifferent: All supernatural beings in this world, even vampires, succubi, and werewolves, are subtypes of Fae. There are also more traditional types of Fae such as banshees, will-o-the-wisps, etc. Most types of Fae prey on humans in some way, whether by feeding on emotions, LifeForce, body parts/fluids, or even by draining the luck from humans.
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: They can only be killed by having their heart cut out.
* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: Dyson.
* OurZombiesAreDifferent: Eddie's a Hsien, who can posess recently killed bodies.
* OutWithABang: Occasionally. Sex doesn't always equal death, and Bo can kill with just a kiss, but it happens.
* OrphansOrdeal: Bo's biological (Fae) parents abandoned her, for reasons unknown. She then had to leave home as a teen after her powers awakened. Kenzi has been on the street since she was 10. The [[spoiler: thief in the second episode is stealing from his father as revenge for abandoning him and his mother]].
* ParanoiaFuel: [[invoked]] Literally caused by the Djieiene's venom.
* ParentalAbandonment: Bo.
* PeoplePuppets: Mesmers and lichs, the latter for dead people raised back to life.
* PerkyGoth: Kenzi
* PersonOfMassDestruction: Velma, the Mongolian Death Worm. She might be senile but don't take away her portable TV for too long or you will regret it.
* ThePictureOfDorianGray: Bo suspects that a lich keeps his soul in a pictures of himself and even mentions the story as her inspiration. [[spoiler: She is wrong]]
* PlayingWithFire: Serena.
* ProtagonistCenteredMorality: The show conveniently expects you to forget that Bo went on a spree of murder and arguable rape for about ten years, valuing her own survival over the lives of others in the process, every time she gets mad about Fae killing humans, getting away with murder and gives a speech about right and wrong. However, in "Raging Fae" she is confronted by the sister of the first person she ever killed and is shown to be still very guilty over that.
* PunnyName: The episode titles
* PsychicNosebleed: [[spoiler: The Oracle in episode 5, but only for really intense visions]].
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Fae age a lot slower than humans, so this is true for most of the cast outside of Bo and Kenzi. Dyson talks about his past in terms of centuries, and Shawn in "Fae Day" talks about a dispute he had with his brother in the 1900s. These characters dating the traditionally-aged Bo and Kenzi isn't seen as very unusual by the rest of the cast.
* RealityWritingBook: The Blood King has one, and can use it to write the future. He needs to write in it with his own blood, and it never quite turns out as he intends it to.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Furies. If you look into their eyes you go insane, then die.
* RescueIntroduction: How Bo meets Dyson's NewOldFlame Kiara. And how Dyson re-connects with her after several centuries of separation.
* RescueRomance: After Dyson and Bo rescue Kiara from Cayden, romance ensues. Or re-ensues.
* SassyBlackWoman: Clorice the Thunder Bird.
* ScaryBlackMan: The Blackthorn and the original Ashe.
* SexSlave: Played with. No one ever uses the word "slave" to refer to Lauren, but she does refer to herself as the "property" of the Ash, and for all the influence and prestige she enjoys among the light fae, she is clearly a slave. This trope comes into play when the Ash orders her to seduce and sleep with Bo. Granted, she very much liked and wanted Bo, but it's still the case that she didn't have a choice in the matter.
* ShirtlessScene: Hale in "Death Didn't Become Her". The sight of his six pack is enough to make Kenzi forget about her disgust at having had to remove his vomit-stained shirt.
* ShownTheirWork: Every fairy, fae, and legendary creature they actually got right.....Sirens to Furies, Frost Giants to Thunder Birds. Someone REALLY knew their mythologies.
* ShockandAwe: Lightning Birds.
* SlaveCollar: The pendant Lauren wears marks her as the Ash's property.
* SpeakOfTheDevil: Invoking Baba Yaga involves, among other things, saying her name three times into a mirror.
* SpellMyNameWithAThe: The Ash and The Morrigan, respective leaders of the Light and Dark Fae.
* StalkerWithACrush: [[spoiler: Jenny]] in "Faetal Attraction".
* StickyFingers:
--> '''Bo''': And Kenzi?
-->'''Kenzi''': Yeah?
-->'''Bo''': Stop stealing shit.
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: Bo displays one when Lauren is threatened. She doesn't remember how or what she did afterwards though.
* TakeAThirdOption:
** Bo chooses to side with neither Light nor Dark Fae. It's made clear that this may not be the best idea.
** In addition to the Light and Dark sides, [[spoiler: some people (like Dyson) are more closely allied with Trick, AKA The Blood King and ancient ruler of the fae.]]
* AThreesomeIsHot: Bo with a married Fae couple
* TearsOfBlood: All the sick people in episode 6
* ToServeMan: Certain types of Fae are carrion eaters. Kenzi accidentally has some dead guy soup in episode 6. Yummy.
* TookALevelInBadass: Bo has. Dyson points it out after returning in season 2 opener, and she seems far more competent and comfortable in a fight.
* UndyingLoyalty: Wolf-fae are extremely loyal to their pack and their king. It took a massive betrayal by his king for Dyson to leave his service and the other members of the pack still protected the king even though they knew what happened.
* UriahGambit: The king of Dyson's old pack sent Dyson's best friend to be killed so he could have the friend's lover for himself.
* UrbanFantasy
* TheWatcher: the Nain Rouge.
* TheWatson: Inverted. Bo doesn't have a clue about the Fae or how Fae Society works, and frequently needs things explained to her.
* VoiceOfTheLegion: [[spoiler: Bo after being shot by a lich]]
* WhatDidIDoLastNight: Well Kenzi, you invoked Baba Yaga and cursed Dyson.
* WinYourFreedom: The stag of the hunt to decide the new Ash can win his or her freedom by ringing the bell. The contestants for the title need to kill them before that.
* WrongGenreSavvy: Bo deduces that a lich stored his soul in a portrait and just like in ThePictureOfDorianGray she has to destroy it to kill the lich. When she cuts the picture up with a knife [[spoiler: the lich merely laughs at her]].
* Yandere: In the episode [[spoiler:Faetal Attraction]], sweet, innocent, victimized [[spoiler:Jenny]] turns out to be a chainsaw weilding psycho. Anyone else notice the Bluebeard shoutout? [[spoiler: except of course she has her previous objects-of-obsessions' skulls in her "secret" cupboard]]
* YouCantFightFate: [[spoiler: No matter what you do, if a banshee wails for you, then you're as good as dead]].
* YourWorstNightmare: What the mare does to the people or fae its feeding off. Unsurprisingly given her orphaned background, Bo's tend to revolve around being abandoned and alone.

''Lost Girl'' could refer to the following:

* ''Series/LostGirl''

* CreepyChild: The little girl who keeps appearing to Bo in the season 2 premiere. She later reveals herself as the Nain Rouge, a harbinger of doom.
* CulturalPosturing: All the Fae (except Bo, Trick and Dyson) seem to look down on humans. Underfae don't get much respect either.
* {{Curse}}: Used a few times such as when Kenzi invokes the Baba Yaga to inflict one on Dyson. [[spoiler: Lauren's girlfriend Natalia turns out be under once hence her coma.]]
* CursedWithAwesome: Kenzi certainly thinks Bo's powers are cool. Bo's not so sure.
* DamselInDistress: Kenzi when captured by the BabaYaga.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Dark Fae definitely have worse policies when it comes to humans, and they are the blacker morality compared to the Light, but, just as we see rather evil-acting Light Fae, some Dark Fae are rather pleasant and don't really show any "evil" traits.
* DeadpanSnarker: Kenzi, regularly. Other characters also chip in.
* DeusSexMachina: Sexual contact can heal a succubus, at the expense of her partner. She can also inject a partner with "sexual chi", partially healing them.
** The BOH-see ahn Ta-LAHV, a mystical ritual binding the Light Fae to a piece of land, requires the Ash to have sex with the AnthropomorphicPersonification of the land, thereby consummating a mystical "marriage" to it. Furthermore, the ritual is powered by sexual energy siphoned from the surrounding crowd. This is apparently a common feature of Fae and pagan rituals.
* DirtyCop: Dyson and Hale [[PlayingWithATrope play with this]]. While they take the "to serve and protect" part of their jobs seriously, they are primarily concerned with covering up evidence of fae activities.
* DistractedByTheSexy: Effectively Bo's superpower.
* DominoRevelation
* DreamStealer: The baku (from Japanese mythology), a heroic version who eat bad dreams.
* DreamWeaver: The mares, who purposefully give people and fae nightmares in order to feed off their fae.
* DutchAngle: Done in the episode "Arachnofaebia" to show the fear and increasing insanity of the victims of the MonsterOfTheWeek.
* EarnYourHappyEnding: Invoked by Kenzi when she tells Bo to fight for Dyson, Lauren and her overall happiness.
* EatingTheEyeCandy: Kenzi when Hale takes off his shirt.
* EleventhHourSuperpower: When Lauren is threatened by the lich and his minions, combined with a side order of ThePowerOfLove. Bo doesn't remember what she did or how she did it but there were elements of GodSaveUsFromTheQueen at that point.
* EmbarrassingMiddleName: Det. Hale. His full name & title: Baronet William Haley Francoise Santiago.
* EmbarrassingNickname: Kenzi used to be known as "Meow Meow" on the street. One of her friends was [[{{Bambi}} "Thumper"]].
* EmotionEater:
** The Djieiene "psychically feeds off the flood of adrenalized pheremones" of the people it drives into homicidal paranoia.
** Morraghs feed on rage.
** Mares feed on the fear generated by nightmares.
* EnthrallingSiren: Det. Hale
* EstrogenBrigadeBait: Dyson, what with the whole shapeshifters don't need shirts thing. Hale's not bad looking either.
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: Everyone's hot for Bo. It probably comes with being a Succubus.
** Same with Sherri and her fellow selkie strippers in "Fae Gone Wild", who have Kenzi questioning her sexuality.
* EvilBrit: Vex.
* TheFairFolk: The Light and the Dark Fae.
* FalseFriend: [[spoiler: Cayden]] turns out to be one for Dyson.
* FilmNoir: The entire series is dark lit, and often takes place in underground bars and abandoned buildings or an AbandonedWarehouse. The protaganist is an BadassLongcoat AntiHero FemmeFatale PrivateDetective who deals with TheMafia, fae style. It even comes with FlashForward and FlashBack.
* {{Fingore}}:
** Vex forces Siegfried to stick his hand down a sink trash disposal.
** Bo and Dyson question a fae who recently lost a finger. When they ask how he lost it, he bites off another of his fingers to demonstrate. He likes to snack and the fingers apparently grow back.
* FiveManBand: Generally the crew that gets together to solve the MysteryOfTheWeek.
** TheHero: Bo
** TheLancer: Kenzi
** TheBigGuy: Dyson
** TheChick: Lauren
** TheSmartGuy: Trick or Lauren. Trick for fae knowledge, Lauren for science/medical knowledge.
** TheSixthRanger: Hale
* ForcedPrizeFight: The pilot episode
* ForScience: Lauren's reason for working with the Fae.
* FreakyFridayFlip: Most of the main characters in "Original Skin" switch bodies. Kenzi in Dyson is probably the CrowningMomentOfFunny. Similar to ''{{Farscape}}'', they have name tags to distinguish everyone
* FriendsWithBenefits: Bo and Dyson tried to be this in the first season.
* GreenThumb: Landwights.
* GoshDangItToHeck: Averted. Kenzi's has no problem swearing, and Showcase has no problem airing it.
* GoodPowersBadPeople: The landwights are nature Fae who bring amazing good fortune to anyone who eats the plants that grow on their land. The Dark Fae landwight seen in the show, however, is happy to use humans as plant food.
* GunsAreUseless: Averted. Fae aren't much more immune to bullets than the typical human, and Dyson coup-de-graces several with his service piece.
* GutturalGrowler: The Ash. It's almost "Christian Bale"-esque {{Narm}}
* HalfHumanHybrid: Averted. Offspring of human and Fae are totally human.
* HappinessInSlavery: Lauren is the property of the Ash, leader of the light fae, but is generally content with her lot in life. She finds her scientific research into fae physiology to be intellectually rewarding, and her medical expertise, and the fact that she is owned by the leader of the light fae, gives her a fair amount of prestige and influence among the light fae. She is unmistakably a slave, however. [[spoiler:The happiness part of the trope may be in decline under the new Ash]].
* HatePlague: Spread by the Djieiene.
* HealingFactor: Dyson. What makes him suitable feeding material for Bo. Also the reason she uses his friend Cayden, also a werewolf.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: Bo and Kenzi, in an example of what could ironically be called "playing it extra straight". Sure, Bo is not exactly heterosexual, but they manage to subvert the LesYay precisely because of that: If there was anything more than friendship between Bo and Kenzi, on this show it would be main text. Nevertheless, the "Same Gender, Always Together" catchphrase certainly applies.
* [[HoistByHisOwnPetard Hoist By Her Own Petard]]: Baba Yaga is knocked into the very furnace she uses to cook nubile young girls. This is simultaneously an instance of TheDogBitesBack, as the one who knocks her in is her mistreated pet domovoi.
* HornyDevils: The protagonist [[spoiler: and her biological mother.]]
* HotScientist/ HospitalHottie: Lauren, doctor/scientist for the Light Fae.
* HuntingTheMostDangerousGame: the Stag Hunt.
* [[spoiler: {{Kappa}}]]: The villain Fae of episode 3.
* ImAHumanitarian:
** Kenzi, but it was an accident.
** Baba Yaga
** Lichs
* IDidWhatIHadToDo: Justification for many villains including the one in the season 2 opener.
* {{Invisibility}}: Hamish's ability. Manifests as type 2 VisibleInvisibility when fading in and out.
* ItTastesLikeFeet: Averted. Foot soup actually tastes pretty good.
* KillItWithFire: Bo when hunting an underfae in season 2 Hale however prefers [[MoreDakka a minigun]]
* KingIncognito: [[spoiler: Trick is the Blood King of the Fae.]]
* ALoadOfBull: [[spoiler:In the second webcomic Hale and Dyson track a Minotaur in the sewers]]
* LifeEnergy: What Bo feeds on.
* LightIsNotGood: The Light Fae seem just as dangerous and manipulative as the Dark ones.
* LipstickLesbian: Lauren (or Lipstick Bisexual, we don't yet know).
* LittlePeopleAreSurreal: Averted. Trick's being much smaller than the rest of the cast is unremarked upon, and when another little person figures into the plot, it turns out he's related to Trick. It seems to be just another Fae marker for that particular species.
* LocalHangout: Trick's bar, populated only by fae ([[AndZoidberg and Kenzi]]).
* LoopholeAbuse: "nothing in the rules about bringing the stag BackFromTheDead".
* {{Lzherusskie}}: Averted. Ksenia Solo is from Latvia.
* MagicPants: Aversion with Dyson. Kenzi actually picks up his pants post-transformation, explaining where he recovers them from. I guess he didn't have time to put the rest of his clothes on...
* MakeMeWannaShout: Sirens like Detective Hale.
* MarionetteMaster: Lichs, of dead people raised back to life.
* MeaningfulName: "Bo" sounds like "Beau", which means beauty.
** It may also be intended to be a backhanded reference to Little Bo Peep, only in this case Bo has lost her family and not her sheep.
** A title rather than a name, but the leader of the Dark Fae is given the title of "The Morrigan" which refers to the Celtic Goddess of war and strife. It translates as "phantom queen" or "great queen".
** When a fae reach a high enough political position, they assume the traditional title of the position as their name. So if a fae is only refered by his/her title, it means that you are dealing with someone really powerful.
* MindControl: Several types of Fae have some form of this power. The character Vex, who is a type of Fae called a Mesmer, can turn pretty much anyone into one of his PeoplePuppets. Bo can do this at a CharmPerson level using her succubus powers of attraction, while older, more experienced succubi [[spoiler: such as Saskia/Aife]] can enslave people to the point of creating a small army of enthralled humans who are willing to die for them.
* MsFanservice: Again, the protagonist.
** And the Sidekick. And the [[HelloNurse Hot Doctor]]. And TheDragon of the Dark Fae. Almost every female character we see has cleavage... the whole show runs on FanService.
* MonsterOfTheWeek
* MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily: Morraghs.
* MuggingTheMonster: Any human trying to attack fae will usually end up in this situation.
** A rapist going after Bo in the pilot episode did not stand a chance and was not really mourned.
** Even fae tend to underestimate Bo's power.
* MuggleBestFriend: Kenzi, the only non-fae in the main cast.
* TheMuse: The Morrigan is a type of muse-fae who feeds on driving artists she gets involved with insane.
* MyBelovedSmother: The Glaive has very strict instructions on what her daugher cannot do when she is out. They eliminate any 'fun' activities a young woman might want to to indulge in. Turns out some of them are actually quite reasonable considering the fae's nature. [[spoiler: Drinking coffee stops her heart.]]
* MysteryOfTheWeek
* NewOldFlame: Kiara, for Dyson. Or at least someone he cared deeply for in a romantic sense even if they weren't in a relationship in the past.
* NiceHat: Hale has one.
* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: If you don't do anything after invoking Baba Yaga to curse your ex, you'll be fine. If you have second thoughts and want the curse removed, Baba Yaga will take you as a slave and eventually eat you.
* NoOntologicalInertia: the Djieine's venom instantly disappears from its victims' bodies as soon as its heart is killed. The justification for this has something to do with magnetic fields.
* OccultDetective: Bo is one of the few female versions of this trope.
* OurFairiesAreDifferent: All supernatural beings in this world, even vampires, succubi, and werewolves, are subtypes of Fae. There are also more traditional types of Fae such as banshees, will-o-the-wisps, etc. Most types of Fae prey on humans in some way, whether by feeding on emotions, LifeForce, body parts/fluids, or even by draining the luck from humans.
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: They can only be killed by having their heart cut out.
* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: Dyson.
* OurZombiesAreDifferent: Eddie's a Hsien, who can posess recently killed bodies.
* OutWithABang: Occasionally. Sex doesn't always equal death, and Bo can kill with just a kiss, but it happens.
* OrphansOrdeal: Bo's biological (Fae) parents abandoned her, for reasons unknown. She then had to leave home as a teen after her powers awakened. Kenzi has been on the street since she was 10. The [[spoiler: thief in the second episode is stealing from his father as revenge for abandoning him and his mother]].
* ParanoiaFuel: [[invoked]] Literally caused by the Djieiene's venom.
* ParentalAbandonment: Bo.
* PeoplePuppets: Mesmers and lichs, the latter for dead people raised back to life.
* PerkyGoth: Kenzi
* PersonOfMassDestruction: Velma, the Mongolian Death Worm. She might be senile but don't take away her portable TV for too long or you will regret it.
* ThePictureOfDorianGray: Bo suspects that a lich keeps his soul in a pictures of himself and even mentions the story as her inspiration. [[spoiler: She is wrong]]
* PlayingWithFire: Serena.
* ProtagonistCenteredMorality: The show conveniently expects you to forget that Bo went on a spree of murder and arguable rape for about ten years, valuing her own survival over the lives of others in the process, every time she gets mad about Fae killing humans, getting away with murder and gives a speech about right and wrong. However, in "Raging Fae" she is confronted by the sister of the first person she ever killed and is shown to be still very guilty over that.
* PunnyName: The episode titles
* PsychicNosebleed: [[spoiler: The Oracle in episode 5, but only for really intense visions]].
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Fae age a lot slower than humans, so this is true for most of the cast outside of Bo and Kenzi. Dyson talks about his past in terms of centuries, and Shawn in "Fae Day" talks about a dispute he had with his brother in the 1900s. These characters dating the traditionally-aged Bo and Kenzi isn't seen as very unusual by the rest of the cast.
* RealityWritingBook: The Blood King has one, and can use it to write the future. He needs to write in it with his own blood, and it never quite turns out as he intends it to.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Furies. If you look into their eyes you go insane, then die.
* RescueIntroduction: How Bo meets Dyson's NewOldFlame Kiara. And how Dyson re-connects with her after several centuries of separation.
* RescueRomance: After Dyson and Bo rescue Kiara from Cayden, romance ensues. Or re-ensues.
* SassyBlackWoman: Clorice the Thunder Bird.
* ScaryBlackMan: The Blackthorn and the original Ashe.
* SexSlave: Played with. No one ever uses the word "slave" to refer to Lauren, but she does refer to herself as the "property" of the Ash, and for all the influence and prestige she enjoys among the light fae, she is clearly a slave. This trope comes into play when the Ash orders her to seduce and sleep with Bo. Granted, she very much liked and wanted Bo, but it's still the case that she didn't have a choice in the matter.
* ShirtlessScene: Hale in "Death Didn't Become Her". The sight of his six pack is enough to make Kenzi forget about her disgust at having had to remove his vomit-stained shirt.
* ShownTheirWork: Every fairy, fae, and legendary creature they actually got right.....Sirens to Furies, Frost Giants to Thunder Birds. Someone REALLY knew their mythologies.
* ShockandAwe: Lightning Birds.
* SlaveCollar: The pendant Lauren wears marks her as the Ash's property.
* SpeakOfTheDevil: Invoking Baba Yaga involves, among other things, saying her name three times into a mirror.
* SpellMyNameWithAThe: The Ash and The Morrigan, respective leaders of the Light and Dark Fae.
* StalkerWithACrush: [[spoiler: Jenny]] in "Faetal Attraction".
* StickyFingers:
--> '''Bo''': And Kenzi?
-->'''Kenzi''': Yeah?
-->'''Bo''': Stop stealing shit.
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: Bo displays one when Lauren is threatened. She doesn't remember how or what she did afterwards though.
* TakeAThirdOption:
** Bo chooses to side with neither Light nor Dark Fae. It's made clear that this may not be the best idea.
** In addition to the Light and Dark sides, [[spoiler: some people (like Dyson) are more closely allied with Trick, AKA The Blood King and ancient ruler of the fae.]]
* AThreesomeIsHot: Bo with a married Fae couple
* TearsOfBlood: All the sick people in episode 6
* ToServeMan: Certain types of Fae are carrion eaters. Kenzi accidentally has some dead guy soup in episode 6. Yummy.
* TookALevelInBadass: Bo has. Dyson points it out after returning in season 2 opener, and she seems far more competent and comfortable in a fight.
* UndyingLoyalty: Wolf-fae are extremely loyal to their pack and their king. It took a massive betrayal by his king for Dyson to leave his service and the other members of the pack still protected the king even though they knew what happened.
* UriahGambit: The king of Dyson's old pack sent Dyson's best friend to be killed so he could have the friend's lover for himself.
* UrbanFantasy
* TheWatcher: the Nain Rouge.
* TheWatson: Inverted. Bo doesn't have a clue about the Fae or how Fae Society works, and frequently needs things explained to her.
* VoiceOfTheLegion: [[spoiler: Bo after being shot by a lich]]
* WhatDidIDoLastNight: Well Kenzi, you invoked Baba Yaga and cursed Dyson.
* WinYourFreedom: The stag of the hunt to decide the new Ash can win his or her freedom by ringing the bell. The contestants for the title need to kill them before that.
* WrongGenreSavvy: Bo deduces that a lich stored his soul in a portrait and just like in ThePictureOfDorianGray she has to destroy it to kill the lich. When she cuts the picture up with a knife [[spoiler: the lich merely laughs at her]].
* Yandere: In the episode [[spoiler:Faetal Attraction]], sweet, innocent, victimized [[spoiler:Jenny]] turns out to be a chainsaw weilding psycho. Anyone else notice the Bluebeard shoutout? [[spoiler: except of course she has her previous objects-of-obsessions' skulls in her "secret" cupboard]]
* YouCantFightFate: [[spoiler: No matter what you do, if a banshee wails for you, then you're as good as dead]].
* YourWorstNightmare: What the mare does to the people or fae its feeding off. Unsurprisingly given her orphaned background, Bo's tend to revolve around being abandoned and alone.

* BloodSport: A fae running a MMA gym starts running underground fights that he broadcasts over the internet to paying spectators. When his human champion proves to be too good for other human fighters, he starts pitting him against fae fighters like Ogres and [[MadeOfIron Obsidians]]. None of the fae seem too concerned that a human could easily be killed in such a matchup.
