** Early in the hiatus, a meme went up where players discussed who they planned to app. About half of these plans were not kept. Imagine [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Saber]], [[{{LightNovel/Durarara}} Celty]], or [[ThePrincessAndTheFrog Naveen]] in TST...

* AlternateUniverse: It's an AU, yes, but it also has ''tons'' of different [=AUs=] of itself. Some of the most prominent include an AfterTheEnd CrapsackWorld (which got its ''own'' AU community cutting ties with the original game), a ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}''-based AU, and numerous [[ForWantOfANail "what ifs"]] for various characters.

* BiTheWay: "That's why I like [[UnusualEuphemism peanut butter cups]]. Makes things easier." Best statement ever, [[VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} Souji]].

* ExoticWeaponSupremacy / ImprobableWeaponUser: Most characters use their weapon of choice from canon, rather than switching to something more setting-appropriate, meaning these tropes show up often. Just to rattle off some examples, there's [[Manga/{{Gintama}} Gintoki]] with a [[WoodenKatanasAreEvenBetter bokuto]], [[Manga/BlackButler Grell]] with a [[ChainsawGood chainsaw]], [[VideoGame/{{Lunar}} Jean]] and [[VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} Yukiko]] ''both'' throwing fans... and at the furthest extreme, [[VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} Kanji]], who will use anything in reach.

* NearDeathExperience: [[VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} Yosuke]], who until now still believes that he really ''did'' die - though you really can't fault him, since he did take a knife to the heart. Good thing [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Inoue]] happened to be with him at that time....

* SparedByTheAdaptation: [[spoiler:Minato]]'s near-death experience is deliberately set up to resemble his HeroicSacrifice in his own canon. He is then punched in the face (by [[VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} Souji]], no less) for not caring enough about his life.
* SplitPersonality: [[ReBoot Hexadecimal]], so damn much, as in canon.

* CookingDuel: A few of these have happened between ships, particularly when the cooks have grudges against one another; these were dubbed "IronChef Reial". The Hanami Festival had a formal cooking competition.

** [[{{Lunar}} Leo]] deserves a special mention. During a plot with StandardStatusEffects, he managed to get inflicted with just about every one in the book. And in another plot, he was entered into a plane race only to have his plane sabotaged to the point of exploding in midair. Don't worry, though, [[{{Determinator}} he bounces back quickly]].

** Parodied mercilessly in [[http://community.livejournal.com/theskytides/488922.html this log]]. [[{{Lunar}} Jean]] smacks a gang leader with a [[ImprovisedWeapon backgammon board]] that she [[RageQuit just happened to be holding for some reason]]. And then the [=NPCs=] follow suit...

* SupernaturalMartialArts: Most notably, [[{{Lunar}} Jean]]. She's not a magic user in the strictest sense, but through training she's learned how to inflict StandardStatusEffects through a type of MagicDance, and how to use KiAttacks like [[KamehameHadoken Hadouken]].

* EveryoneIsRelated: There are too many cross-canon families to list. The [[strike:best]] [[strike:worst]] most demonstrative example would be the completely screwed-up Hijikata family: the older cousin [[PeacemakerKurogane Toshizou]], his younger cousin [[Manga/{{Gintama}} Toshirou]], and the latter's [[LongLostRelative long-lost]] [[SeparatedAtBirth twin brother]] [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Roy Mustang]].

* UnsettlingGenderReveal: [[PeacemakerKurogane Okita Souji]] is often mistaken for female. Revealing that he's a guy shocks people every time.

* ACupAngst: [[YesPrecure5 Mimino Kurumi]]. In her canon, it was a feature of the art style and never brought up. Here, it's been mentioned enough that she's developed a complex, especially in memes and non-canon games.

* LethalJokeCharacter: [[YesPrecure5 Milky Rose]] isn't a real MagicalGirlWarrior in this one; she runs off to change into her overly frilly uniform, has to hold onto her long wig in the wind, and stains the washbasins dyeing her blue rose petals. Along with her canon weakness of [[ShapeshifterModeLock being forced back into mascot form]] after draining her energy, since she doesn't transform, she also turns back into a mascot whenever she's knocked to the floor or into a wall even as Milky Rose. Despite all this ridiculousness and the {{Weaksauce Weakness}}es, she's nearly as strong as her canon counterpart -- "nearly" because she had to be nerfed.

* NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent: Characters are described occasionally as having accents from their home countries (until they've been travelling so long that the accent begins to fade), but nobody has figured out how certain accents sound and, unless the character canonically has a different accent from hir canonmates, nobody [[FunetikAksent types them out]]. During her brief stint at the game, [[YesPrecure5 Karen]] was mistaken for Ivonian due to [[LonelyRichKid her personality]] [[SlobsVersusSnobs and appearance]], to which she replied that her Erealian accent must have weakened after spending a year on the mainland.

* SomethingAboutARose: Denouement's symbol is a stylized red rose. On the blue side of things, there's [[YesPrecure5 Milky Rose]] and her PetalPower, played as much for comedy as for dramatic effect. [[Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena Utena]], being post-canon, is pinged by both of these (and any roses used as somebody's symbol) to the point of past trauma.
