* AGodAmI: You can believe this if you choose. You can also set up a cult as a way of raking in more tribute.



* TheDreaded: A dragon with high Infamy becomes this. Fear can be as powerful a weapon as a dragon's claws.



* NobleDemon: An Honorable dragon in ''Choice of the Dragon'', especially if they prefer Finesse to Brutality.

* NobleDemon: An Honorable dragon in ''Choice of the Dragon'', especially if they prefer will [[IGaveMyWord keep its word]], not betray allies, and protect its vassals. A dragon with high Finesse and Honor fits this trope to Brutality.a T and is likely to be a fairly decent being for a dragon. A Brutal and Honorable dragon fits in a different way; keeping your word doesn't mean you won't commit mass murder for the hell of it.


Added DiffLines:

* PragmaticVillainy: Generally a sign of high Finesse.

* NoBisexuals: You can only get together with Villeneuve in Choice of Broadsides if you state that you aren't attracted to the opposite sex. Also, the first version of Choice of the Vampire enforced this, with the protagonist unable to get together with Silas if they pursued Clotho far enough. Later versions avert this, however.

* AnachronismStew: The game is set in TheFifties. Most of the background fluff (UsefulNotes/TheKoreanWar is ongoing, UsefulNotes/TheHollywoodBlacklist is at its height, a Congressional committee is actively rooting out Communist agents, the Paramount Decision has opened the door for independent filmmakers to reach a wide audience of theater-goers) implies a setting in the early fifties, but several of the movies listed in the dossiers of actors and directors were released later in the decade, and your niece at one point makes a reference to ''Series/LeaveItToBeaver'', considered emblematic of TheFifties but not actually broadcast until 1957.
** That said, most hints indicate the game takes place in 1952-53. "Eisenhower's America" is mentioned in such a way as to imply it's a new thing (he was elected on November 4, 1952, and inaugurated on January 20, 1953), the Korean War ended in mid-1953, and [[spoiler: the Academy Awards ceremony in one of the game's possible endings is explicitly said to be the first broadcast on television - which historically was the 25th Academy Awards ceremony, held on March 19, 1953. Oddly, Spencer Tracy, who presents you with your award, was not a presenter at that ceremony in RealLife.]] The Army-[=McCarthy=] hearings of 1954 would precipitate the decline of Communist witch-hunts, making a setting after that point unlikely.

* SupportingProtagonist: You to Solitary. It's downplayed as you and JJ still have an important story that creates a great deal of drama and tension. But you are mostly a pawn for other characters as they try to end Solitary's winning streak.
