* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Misspelling a character's name creates a tiny, adorable, and usually bloodthirsty version of a monster from the appropriate canon called a Mini. Even the minis based on hideous, monstrous creatures [[UglyCute remain endearing]].

Somewhere in your favorite fandom, your most beloved characters and plot elements are being ruined right now. Everything that makes [[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Jack Sparrow]] funny is being dropped for the sake of bad romance. [[Literature/HarryPotter Snape]] suddenly washes his hair, grows angel wings and yet no one bats an eye. [[Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia The four Pevensie siblings]] are [[BrotherSisterIncest having sex with each other]], as spelling and grammar are murdered wholesale describing that brand new sports car that [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings Legolas]] somehow owns.

** It goes the other way, too: Agent Naomi (human) objects to Agents Stormsong (weasel) and Skyfire (stoat) teaching their adopted daughter Molly (ferret) about weapons because she's about six in human years. Skyfire acknowledges this, pointing out that said teaching has been left terribly late (at least for [[{{Redwall}} their home continuum]]).

* FutureMeScaresMe / IHatePastMe: During "Folded Time", a series of short stories set just after the first Continuity Council of Gallifrey-in-Exile's first outing, the Notary meets one of her previous regenerations, along with her companion. The present Notary was even more vicious than normal, to the previous regeneration's total bewilderment... [[spoiler:until she figures out that the Notary she's talking to is one she regenerates into in the future. That companion of hers? That's her ''girlfriend''. And the future Notary she saw is alone.]]
** [[spoiler:This really comes home to roost in Episode 3 of Wobbles and the Notary's spinoff, "Homicidal Agents". We get an explanation and flashback detailing the aforementioned previous Notary's regeneration... directly into the horrible, ghastly heap of embittered self-loathing, the depths of whose hatefulness has been explored at length in the missions. That hippyish, cute girlfriend? The Fifth Notary '''shot her ear off''' and dumped her in a spacial anomaly (which turned out to be a naturally-occurring plothole, but that's another story). Hence the Fourth Notary's remarks just before she regenerated:]]
---> [[spoiler:'''The Fourth Notary:''' I'm not scared of changing[...] I'm scared of changing ''back''.]]

* BreakTheHaughty: Quite a few other agents. Of particular note is [[ObstructiveBureaucrat the Notary]], whose backstory is sort of this.

* AnthropomorphicPersonification: [[http://ppc.wikia.com/wiki/Anthropomorphic_Personification Has its own page on the Wiki.]] Aside from this, the "gijinka" definition of this is an apt description for some agents, such as Omicron the [[DoctorWho Dalek]] and Backslash the [[VideoGame/PokemonXAndY Honedge]].



** Quite a few of [=SkarmorySilver's=] agents. There's Falchion (essentially a reincarnation of one of his self-insert Stus), Velociripper (formerly a Gary Stu antagonist), Sarah Squall (a clone of [[WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles Stratogale]] from the same fic as Ripper), Lapis Lazuli (another one of his Sues), and Cupid Carmine (a former Sue-Wraith).

* GirlsNightOutEpisode: A DoorStopper of a mission [[http://armorbirdpress.tumblr.com/post/153311479133/rc-333-mission-13-girls-night-out that's even named as such!]] While there are many girl-only agent teams, the agents participating come from RCs each of them share with at least one male agent. As an added bonus, [[DesignatedGirlFight all three of the Suvians they're sent after are female as well.]]



** Agent Velociripper was tasked with disposing of a replacement of [[{{Pokemon}} Ash Ketchum]] near the end of his first training mission. Not!Ash openly insulted Ripper's intelligence by trying to play fetch with him, and then taunted him after he pressed charges. Not a smart move, considering that Ripper is a subadult ''Deinonychus''... and happened to be very, ''very'' [[JustDesserts hungry.]]

** Agent Velociripper was tasked with disposing of * ToServeMan: Nonhuman agents who have a fondness for Suvian flesh might possibly fall under this trope, though it's acknowledged that Sues aren't human to begin with. Special mention goes to Velociripper, though, who comes from [[JurassicPark a continuum]] where predators seem to prefer humans more than bigger prey - and once ate a character replacement of [[{{Pokemon}} Ash Ketchum]] near the end of his first training mission. Not!Ash openly insulted Ripper's intelligence by trying to play fetch with him, and then taunted him after he pressed charges. Not a smart move, considering so completely that Ripper is a subadult ''Deinonychus''... and happened to be very, ''very'' [[JustDesserts hungry.]]by the time he was done, only the ''[[StrippedToTheBone bones]]'' were left!

* PteroSoarer: Lampshaded in [[https://docs.google.com/document/d/1jFddeA6xDGWo5vJxDvOUep_LPJIzrmgZ5EwUUzFj8jg/pub "Getting Some Exorcise"]], wherein the Sue-wraith possessing an anatomically accurate ''Quetzalcoatlus'' (presumably from ''{{Dinotopia}}'') resembles the [[https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/tetrapod-zoology/quetzalcoatlus-the-evil-pin-headed-toothy-nightmare-monster-that-wants-to-eat-your-soul/ pin-headed, demonic-looking depictions]] of the genus common to 70's and 80's artwork. And in an arguable case of AuthorAppeal, [[AuthorAvatar Falchion]] has disguised himself as an accurate, quad-launching ''Quetzalcoatlus'' at least twice.
