* JunkRare: There is a 0.0036-0.0039% chance (~4 out of every ''thousand'') chance of getting a "blab" from a golden cookie. All this does is show a bit of FlavorText, and has absolutely no effect on your cookie count or cps.

* AnthropomorphicFood: Soon, your cookies will come to life and think. We later see them in the dungeons, fully playing this trope straight.

* ArtifactTitle: A common joke in the fandom being that a more appropriate title would be "Cookie Waiter" since clicking [[CantCatchUp does virtually nothing in the endgame]] (without receiving the very rare "click frenzy" effect from a golden cookie). About to be taken UpToEleven with the addition of dungeons; no clicking on cookies at all there.[[labelnote:However...]]Once the player has purchased an upgrade that gives extra cookies per click for each non-cursor item owned, clicking becomes second only to the Prism if there are 200 of everything (needed for an achievement). With enough Heavenly Chips, it can even get the player enough cookies to beat the highest "Make X cookies by clicking" achievement after ''one click.''[[/labelnote]]

* JackOfAllStats: Chip, one of the girl scouts that explores the dungeons.



* MightyGlacier: Crumb, one of the girl scouts that explores the dungeons, although she's focused more on defense than offense.



** Crumb is far more down-to-earth than the other girl scouts.



* If the Halloween season is in force, each Wrinkler has a 5% chance of dropping one of the seven Halloween cookie types, chosen with uniform probability. If they drop a type you already have, nothing happens. This is really noticeable when 6 of the 7 types have already dropped - you only have a 1 in 140 chance of getting the one type you don't have. The Reindeer in the Christmas update are the same, dropping one of seven Christmas-themed cookies.

* ShrinkingViolet: Doe, one of the girl scouts.



* UndergroundMonkey: As one progresses in the dungeons, upgraded versions of common enemies appear in the classic fashion; Doughling to Elder Doughling, et cetera.



* UnexpectedGameplayChange: Initially, it looks like a StylisticSuck game where you [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin click on a cookie to make cookies.]] As the buildings and upgrades start to appear, and clicking the cookie becomes relatively ineffective, it turns into an IdleGame (although golden cookie clicking can speed up your cookie-generating significantly). The dungeons beta shifts more dramatically, suddenly launching a procedurally-generated dungeon crawler when you have 50 factories.


Added DiffLines:

!!The ''Dungeon Beta'' contained examples of:
* AbortedArc: The Dungeon idea in general; it showed up in a few betas but ultimately was abandoned. Orteil has hinted he wants to look into it again, but is focusing on less intensive mini-games for now.
* AnthropomorphicFood: Much of what you face in the dungeons.

** Godzamok was hit very hard in v2.0042. Originally it was a 3/2/1% bonus to clicking per building you sell, for the next 10 seconds, letting you get crazy gains by selling all of your cursors and farms. Now it's just a 1%/0.5%/0.25% bonus, meaning that it's a third or a fourth as effective as it used to be depending on which worship slot it's in. Despite that, it's STILL an extremely potent spirit to use for active play, as the short-term gains it can bring during a Click Frenzy or Elder Frenzy are unrivaled.


Added DiffLines:

* OverlyLongGag: [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] by the achievement you get from having a Cookies Per Second of 10 quintillion.
--> ''There's really no hard limit to how long these achievement names can be and to be quite honest I'm rather curious to see how far we can go.''
--> ''Adolphus W. Green (1844-1917) started as the Principal of the Groton School in 1864. By 1865, he became second assistant librarian at the New York Mercantile Library; from 1867 to 1869, he was promoted to full librarian. From 1869 to 1873, he worked for Evarts, Southmayd & Choate, a law firm co-founded by William M. Evarts, Charles Ferdinand Southmayd and Joseph Hodges Choate. He was admitted to the New York State Bar Association in 1873.''
--> ''Anyway, how's your day been? I am wondering if you read all this.''


Added DiffLines:

** 2.0042 adds Chancemakers, as well as a new set of achievements which require 350 of each building.


Added DiffLines:

** Gambler's Fever Dream is a literal Random Effect Spell. It casts a random spell for half its magic cost, with twice the chance of backfiring. While this may seem useless, it is an extremely important spell in [[RandomNumberGod RNG]] manipulation to get more useful effects out of important spells like Force the Hand of Fate (which is itself a Random Effect Spell).


Added DiffLines:

** [[RandomEffectSpell Force the Hand of Fate]]'s outcome is consistent when you reload your save. If you know this, you can save the game, cast the spell to see what effect you get, then reload, knowing that the next time you cast the spell, you'll get the same outcome.

* SeriousBusiness: Both in-game with [[SillinessSwitch Business Day]] [[InvertedTrope Season]] and treated as such by its players, as seen from Cookie Clicker Wiki's Expected Long Term Cookie Production page.

Added DiffLines:

** Lampshaded with the Wrath Cookie result "Cursed Finger" - while it's active, normal production is set to ''zero'' [=CpS=]... however, for the subsequent time frame (default is 10 seconds), each click will give the player cookies equal to what would ordinarily be earned in that time frame. Even one click will make the player break even; a sufficiently fast player will produce a couple hours of production in a very rapid span of time.
** The effect of a backfired Stretch Time is to reduce the length of all current timers by 20% (to a maximum of 10 minutes). This includes timers for debuffs as well - in particular, a backfire of Diminish Ineptitude makes Stretch Time backfire 75% of the time, and the Stretch Time backfire reduces the timer of a backfired Diminish Ineptitude by 2 minutes.


Added DiffLines:

** One that requires a bit of luck involves setting up as of the launch of the grimoire is taking advantage of the spell Conjure Baked Goods. If it works correctly, it essentially acts like getting two "Lucky" bonuses at once, with a similar limitation of maxing out at 15% of the current banked cookies. Due to the fact that it can be triggered at any time, this means that it can be comboed with "Frenzy" plus a building bonus, or even an Elder Frenzy. There's a bit of a risk in that a backfire of Conjure Baked Goods functions as a double-effect "Ruin" plus "Clot," but the risk of backfire can be considerably mitigated with Diminish Ineptitude.


Added DiffLines:

* WindsOfDestinyChange: As of the 2.0042 update, the Chancemaker building, which manipulates probability to make cookies spontaneously appear. Once the first one is built, the ticker produces news stories which show ridiculous levels of probability manipulation happening in the world.

** A lengthy example with the increasingly fantastical cookie-generation devices: first you can buy extra mouse cursors, then cookie-baking grandmas, followed by cookie farms, factories, mines, and banks. After that, it gets weirder: ancient cookie temples, cookie-wizards, rocketships to the cookie planet, alchemy labs (to turn gold into cookies), portals to the Cookieverse, time machines, and antimatter condensers. And the final, most powerful cookie constructor is... a prism. Maybe the developer is a Music/PinkFloyd fan.

** During Easter, you can get a wide variety of eggs. One of them is (what else?) a Cookie Egg. The flavour text indicates "The shell appears to be chipped." This could be taken one of two ways - The shell's taken a bit of damage, or that it has chocolate chips.
