* AscendedFanon: A staff member once joked that Dennis Lourvey, one of the terrorist programmers, paid his way through MIT by being a male stripper. This was quickly accepted as canon. Similar 'throw it in' moments happen at a startling rate.

* OneOfUs: Many of the members of the site, and even one of the admins, frequent TvTropes and can consider themselves avid tropers. Even without TvTropes as a criteria, you'd be hard pressed to find a member or handler who doesn't have some sort of interest that puts them square in this category.
* ScheduleSlip: Every version has had the occasional slip in schedule, but this is most prevalent in v3, where there was a 5-month hiatus in between Eddie Sullivan's death (7th place), and James Brown and Alexis Machina's death (6th and 5th place), then a seven-month hiatus between then and endgame being released. This extended period of time allowed for ''one-and-a-half-years'' of [[DevelopingDoomedCharacters pre-game]].
** During the first part of V5, the Zetaboards server that the site was hosted on crashed, resulting in two months or so of downtime.



** There have been at least [[http://s10.zetaboards.com/SOTF_V2/topic/7330135/1/ two]] [[http://s1.zetaboards.com/SOTF_Mini/topic/4196624/1/#new threads]] devoted to this very topic on the boards.

* WriteWhoYouKnow: There are a large number of self insert characters or characters who are basically people each handler knows in real life. These characters are typically portrayed realistically, however.

** Mini and AUs are not exempt, with this being the fate of [[spoiler:Khalid Shamoun]] in ''Evolution'' as well.

** A notable one occurred during V3's escape attempt. Both [[spoiler:Julie Mikan]] and [[spoiler:Darnell Butler]] were supposed to survive much longer than they actually did. [[spoiler:In fact, they were supposed to escape the island altogether]]. However, due to their handlers leaving the site midway through, the characters were [[KilledOffForReal killed off instead]].

** In V4, Kimberly Nguyen was very nearly killed off right at the very beginning of the game, however her handler decided to change plans at the last moment and keep her alive. [[spoiler:As of writing this entry, she made it all the way to endgame, and will finish in second place at least]].

* McLeaned: This happens occasionally if a handler suddenly leaves the site and no one takes on his/her characters. This was the fate of [[spoiler:Megan Nelson, Rob Jenkins, Rein Bumgarner, Carla Conners and Alexander Campbell]] from V4, among others.
