* ActorAllusion: The characters never resist a chance to take a shot at their original voice actors, or {{lampshade}} certain qualities that they share.
* ActingForTwo: Considering the sheer number of characters that have shown up, (Around 250 from both SpecSpidey, Gargoyles, and beyond) several roles are clearly being played by the same people.



* EvilScientist: Tinkerer



* [[ScrewedByTheNetwork Screwed by Formspring]]: The announcement that formspring was going to shut down grinded things to a halt for several weeks. Before that some dead characters had their accounts deleted due to inactivity.

* {{Crossover}}: Thanks to Thomeheb's little gate, we've seen glimpses at Series/BabylonFive, Literature/{{Animorphs}}, Series/StargateAtlantis, WesternAnimation/KimPossible, TheHeroesOfOlympus, Literature/{{Discworld}}, TheDresdenFiles, and Manga/{{Inuyasha}}, just to name a few. And of course, the RP is itself a crossover. Not just with ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'' but it's also implied that ''Disney/AtlantisTheLostEmpire'', ''Film/{{Labyrinth}}'', and the "real world" portions of ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia'' take place in this Universe as well.

More recently, the Roleplay has also gained a spin-off group that explores a number of [[AlternateUniverse Alternate Universes]], as introduced through [[CaptainAtom Thomeheb's]] [[CoolGate Gateway]]. For more details, see [[Roleplay/TheSpectacularOmniverse The Spectacular Omniverse]].

* ChekhovsGun: Too many to count. They do this a lot. The Crown of Thorns and the Spear of Destiny from the Radio Play become this in Grail Arc, then the Spear becomes this in the Mab arc. Then there is the throwaway scene when Lacunae first meets Thomeheb, and we see Tinkerer is working on something large underneath a tarp...a MONTH later we find out it's Thomeheb's Gateway to other Universes.

* EveryoneJoinTheParty: This happens twice. The first time during the Grail Arc when Duval uses the Spear of Destiny and Crown of Thorns to literally subjugate every human being on the planet. Just about every active player had a cameo when this happened when every human dropped to their knees (some to hilarious results) results and chanted "Amen" and we all saw them again when Duval's control was broken. This happened again during the climax of the Mab arc. Every single character put in an appearance whether they were aiding in the fight against Mab, or narrowly avoiding collateral damage.
