* AnimalMotifs: Seagulls have come up a lot in [=SC2=], usually in the context of death scenes. It started with [[spoiler: Richard Ormsby's and Will Lohman's death thread, where seagulls ate Richard's corpse and tried to eat Will alive]], but it's since become somewhat of a dark RunningGag.


Added DiffLines:

* BlackComedy: Blaine Eno subjects Michael Crowe to some seriously awful and lengthy ColdBloodedTorture, [[spoiler:only to get interrupted by Simon Leroy, who decides to stop him. He and Michael end up killing Blaine, but Simon is so injured he dies in the same thread]]. The title of this thread? [[VideoGame/SurgeonSimulator2013 "Surgeon Simulator 2017"]].

* CreatorsPet: Ferric Tam in [=TV1=] was an InUniverse example. He was the only student from Silver Dragon Academy on the Orange Team, whose mentor was a teacher from the same school. Said mentor's messages to his team consisted solely of building Ferric up as an incredible leader who would undoubtedly lead them to victory.

* MemeticMutation: A few in-universe examples:
** One particular incident in Season 6 had Mary Moreau, the top player of the season, try to pretend to be her more pacifistic sister to win the favor of her friends. However, [[EpicFail she didn't realize that Susan had been with them the entire time]]. Said incident is referred to as "the twin switch fail", and there's a well-known StupidStatementDanceMix of the scene.
** Season 20 had a shot of Daisy Robinson hitting a girl over the head with a [[BatterUp baseball bat]] after being found in a bathroom stall. Because the position was great enough to see the girl's teeth go flying, it's frequently used as a reaction gif for unpleasant surprises.
** Erin Crawford's ColdBloodedTorture in Season 28 is this, partly because of how long and drawn out it was, as well as her killer's hammy delivery. [[DudeNotFunny Erin's sister wasn't amused.]]

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: A notable example happened InUniverse in Season 51. After watching her boyfriend die and being tortured by a racist and homophobic bully, eventual-winner [[{{Transgender}} Clara (formerly Cedric) Hoffman]] gave one to the bully before killing him.

* AmusementParkOfDoom: Season 13's Frontier Funland Wild West Park, Season 34's Cherry Acres Family Amusement Park, and Season 41's Tortuga Bay all seem like perfectly decent places to stay if it weren't for the ImmoralRealityShow aspect.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Pirate}}: Season 41's location, Tortuga Bay, was a pirate-themed amusement park, so there was a "treasure" gimmick and costumes to go with the theme. Surprisingly, many of the kids actually embraced it wholeheartedly.

* HalloweenEpisode: Seasons 31 and 46 took place around Halloween, thus having an appropriate theme for both. 31 took place in an AbandonedHospital rumored to be haunted, while 46 was a Mexican village decorated with Halloween and Day of the Dead decorations.

* BewareTheNiceOnes: Season 6's winner was Susan Moreau, an ActualPacifist who often got the [[StupidGood "Parker" label]]. When her twin sister killed her friends and boyfriend however... well, she cracked enough to repeatedly stab her to death. It's implied she [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone regrets it]], based off the mention that she's avoided the spotlight since her win.



* EnsembleDarkhorse: Every season has a few of these pop up, especially in terms of who ends up being marketable during and after the season. Season 30's Julie Warner is a notable example, having retained popularity long after her season due to her acerbic wit and numerous quotes.

Added DiffLines:

* ShockingSwerve: In-universe, the ending of Season 48 was this. It ''looked'' like Maria King was about to win, but she suddenly got sniped by Rena Edwards, a girl who'd been hiding so well that she never interacted with anyone over the course of the game. Fans weren't pleased.

* DarkHorseVictory: Season 48's winner, Rena Edwards, was considered this, as she spent the entire season hiding, uttering no lines on camera and interacting with no other contestants. She managed to win by sniping the last remaining student without the other girl even knowing she was there.

* StupidGood: In-universe, the term "Parkering" is used to describe a variant of this trope where someone refuses to attack others even when it causes issues for them or their allies. This is named for Season One's winner, Brandon Parker, who spent much of the game hiding behind others, only for them to die because of his own actions.
