* {{Texting}}: Quite a bit between crewmembers, when there is sensitive information to be shared privately or the comms aren't working. Katie even recieved an [[{{Spammer}} automated restaurant promotion]] in the middle of a battle one time.

* QueerAsTropes: Averted hard, thankfully, seeing as a good portion of the writers identify as some form of queer themselves.

* CommonalityConnection: Various members of the cast have bonded over mutual interests or experiences, whether it’s a fandom reference or a deep-seated hatred of kaiju.
* ConsummateProfessional: Seiko has high standards when it comes to professionalism, from the way he dresses to how he chooses to address others, and often comments on other people’s failure to meet these same standards.



* HeroicBSOD: Sylvie gets a notable one [[spoiler: when Vulcan Specter shows up]] near the end of Arc 1. Miranda gets a minor one [[spoiler: at Leah’s house]] in Arc 2, as well as in one of her backstory fics.



* InnocentCohabitation: Miranda and Seiko started with a mutually beneficial agreement that involves her giving him a place to stay and off-the-books first aid in exchange for any useful information he can offer her.
* ItDoesntMeanAnything: [[spoiler: “You weren’t a priority, Ms. Cross.”]]
* LapPillow: Miranda falls asleep in Seiko’s lap towards the beginning of Arc 2. [[spoiler: Slightly lessened by the fact that it comes as a result of taking pain meds after Sylvie knocked her across the room, but still applies.]]



*LuminescentBlush: Seiko has a habit of blushing when he’s flustered, especially in the ears. Miranda has also turned some impressive shades of red.
* MemeticHandGesture: [[spoiler: The Blessing of Acid.]]



* NotSoStoic: Seiko has had a few of these, notably [[spoiler: his panic attack with over Wulagu’s call]] at the end of Arc 1 and [[spoiler: his [[ForeignLanguageTirade]] after Miranda is injured]] at the beginning of Arc 2.
* PleaseDontLeaveMe: Miranda has some seriously bad luck with being abandoned by the people she cares about, [[spoiler: as does fiVe.]]
* PleasePutSomeClothesOn: Seiko has walked in on Miranda in various states of undress more times than he would ever have thought possible.



* SafetyInIndifference: Seiko vehemently resists making any real emotional connections with others as a way of avoiding conflicts between what he wants and what he has to do.



* SheIsNotMyGirlfriend: Subverted twice: once by Sylvie when confronted about her “lover’s spat” with Seiko, where her response was so vitriolic that she was believed; and once by Seiko when Miranda is referred to as his girlfriend, where he twitches slightly but says nothing.



* SleepCute: At the end of Arc 1, [[spoiler: Miranda and Seiko end up cuddling to sleep after their respective physical and emotional breakdowns.]] In addition, Sylvie falling asleep hugging her laptop as well as [[spoiler: Miranda sleeping in Seiko’s lap after her fight with Sylvie]] in Arc 2 may also qualify, although YMMV on those ones.
* StrictlyProfessionalRelationship: Miranda and Seiko’s relationship is completely professional. [[BlatantLies No emotional investment or romantic tension at all.]]
* StupidSexyFriend: Miranda slips up repeatedly in her efforts to keep her relationship with Seiko platonic for fear of scaring him off.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: Seiko usually presents pretty cold, but softens significantly when the situation calls for it.



* TheseHandsHaveKilled: Sylvie and the AiVees were pretty rattled by their initial joyride and the events leading up to it.



* WhatTheHellHero: The crew is pretty good about calling one another out on their bullshit; Sylvie and Seiko are the most common targets, but everyone has been on the receiving end of at least one of these.



* YouAllMeetInAnInn: It's a semi-sleazy nightclub, but that's about as close as you can get in modern-day downtown Sydney. While most of the team knows of each other and have worked with each other in the past, the nightclub is the first time all five are together as a team.

* YouMonster: Sylvie's favorite nickname for Seiko.
* ZipMeUp: Seiko routinely helps Miranda [[spoiler: to get in and out of her exoskeleton.]]

* CurbStompBattle: Between the Scroungers and the PPDC, the retrieval mission at Port Stephens did not go terribly well for the Wulagu Syndicate. Miranda attacking the combat-trained Sylvie doesn't turn out very well for her either.

* WorldOfActionGirls: It's fairly telling that Seiko is one of the very few male main characters, and all of these ladies can hold their own.
