Added DiffLines:

* StopBeingStereotypical: Although players are encouraged to do so when creating their characters in the [=RPG=], the rule set subverts this by giving ''incentives'' to play towards the characteristics of your clan. Advantages and Disadvantages are cheaper/give more points for traits commonly associated with a clan mainly because everyone ''expects'' you to act in a certain way.

Added DiffLines:

* TokenEvilTeammate: While all the clans have villainous members, the Scorpion are the only clan who have them predominate and are still mostly accepted. The Spider Clan, while also evil, is barely tolerated at best.

* LongRunners: Of the dozens, or even hundreds of [=CCGs=] that [[FollowTheLeader followed in the wake of]] ''MagicTheGathering'', only ''one'' other game from the "first generation" of [=CCGs=] is still being published alongside ''Magic'' today. Can you guess which one? [[CaptainObvious Hint: you're reading its tropes page.]]

** Horribly subverted with certain enemies of [[TheCaligula Hantei XVI]], who used his power to name Fortunes to punish his enemies posthumously. This resulted in his enemies being forced to rule over such lovely domains as [[ColdBloodedTorture Torture]], [[CreepyCockroach Cockroaches]] and [[ToiletHumour Dung]] for all eternity.

Added DiffLines:

* BlatantLies: The first edition supplement "The Merchant's Guide to Rokugan" is nothing but this. [[spoiler: It has about one page of discussion of economics as cover. The rest of the book is material on the Kolat.]]

* SandBridgeAtLowTide: It includes a location in Crab Clan lands called the "Tidal Landbridge" which... [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin is what you'd expect]]. Inevitably, it is best known for an incident in which a Crab Clan army and reinforcements from their Crane Clan rivals fought a group of Shadowlands invaders until the tide came back in [[KillEmAll with inevitable results]].

* UnreliableNarrator: The First and Second Edition RPG sourcebooks were all written from the subjective, in-universe point of view of the Clan that was the primary focus of the book. This was done for flavor, and to give the GM the freedom to determine what was true and what wasn't. This approach was abandoned halfway through Second Edition when Wizards of the Coast (which had joint rights to the game at the time) [[ViewersareMorons thought this was too confusing]] for their d20 players.

* PurposefullyOverpowered: Many NPC Basic Schools, such as the Dark Moto school and Tsuno Ravager. They have techniques that absolutely hurt, and would make a GM cry if a player ever had access to them.

** "Iron Rokugan," an AU setting in ''Imperial Histories 2,'' averts this trope, by asking what would have happened if things went differently at White Stag. Had the gaijin forces split along national lines due to the Merenae discovering Thrane's treachery, Rokugan may well have developed ties with Merenae, and eventually Rokugani firearms would have been developed on their own, leading to a world where a flintlock pistol being effectively part of the daisho.
