* IdenticalStranger: The storyline that started in February 2015 with a winter storm hitting Genoa City also unveiled the existence of Marco Annicelli, a Peruvian drug lord sprung free by Victor in his plot to take over Jabot Cosmetics from Jack (both Jack and Marco were played by Peter Bergmann), which led to Jack being kidnapped on the day of his wedding to Phyllis and held captive on an island with the insane Kelly Andrews. However, UnfortunateImplications arose from the plot as the discovery of Marco's existence led to the deaths of Austin Travers[[note]]the husband of Victor's granddaughter Summer[[/note]], Courtney Sloane [[note]]the OlderThanSheLooks cop then engaged to Victor's grandson Noah, who was supposed to marry her the day she was slain[[/note]] and a [[MurderTheHypotenuse disgruntled Jabot employee]] who hinted at the secret... not by Marco, but by Mark Harding, a Genoa City P.D. detective who was involved with Marco's plot.

* ArchEnemy: Victor Newman and Jack Abbott are this to a T, with Victor trying to acquire Jabot (the cosmetics business founded by his late parents) several times.



* LadyDrunk: Kay, Nikki

* LadyDrunk: Kay, NikkiNikki. It got worse over time to the point where a 2014 episode centered on her family staging an intervention (as told by Nikki to what was later revealed to be a rehab counselor, though made to look for most of the episode as an angel to make it look to viewers that she died of alcohol poisoning). Her becoming sober at that point led to Victor and Nikki's separation on the basis that Victor's constant deceit has caused her to keep falling off the wagon.


Added DiffLines:

** There's also Adam Newman, who had plastic surgery to look like the businessman who died saving him after a car crash, allowing him to avoid facing jail time for the accidental hit-and-run death of Billy Abbott and Victoria Newman's daughter Delia as he assumed the aforementioned Gabriel Bingham's identity. Like the example mentioned first, this was also done to explain the change in actors.

* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: Averted. Genoa City is in the state of Wisconsin, which means legal documents, e.g. divorce papers have the state seal visible.

* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: Averted. Genoa City is in the state of Wisconsin, which means legal documents, e.g. divorce papers have the state seal visible. The show's main setting Genoa City, Wisconsin shares the same name with a RealLife village in southeastern Wisconsin, but the unrelated, fictionalized city seen in the show is depicted closer in size to Chicago (located 70 miles south-southeast of the real Genoa City) than the real town. Creators William J. Bell and Lee Phillip Bell named the fictional town Genoa City, as it was located on their way from their then-home in Chicago to their summer vacation home in Lake Geneva.

* ThenLetMeBeEvil: Adam Wilson has ended up invoking this trope. It's hard to escape the fact that, before he came to Genoa City, Adam was relatively moral and well-adjusted. It was only after prolonged exposure to the chronic backstabbing and underhanded business dealings of the city that he started his horrific revenge plan and at the end of that, he lapses into a My God, What Have I Done? moment and tries to reform. Then even this is completely undercut when the Newmans and Abbotts confront him in the cabin and treat him like a monster, even though they don't have any idea what he did plus how hollow their moral superiority sounds, considering all the crimes they've committed in the past, which Adam and later DA Owen Pomerantz call them out on.
