* ForbiddenChekhovsGun: Red Mage's [[KurtVonnegut Ice-9]] spell takes away all the heat in the universe. It's cast inside a BagOfHolding that he's just stuffed Kary into (along with all the riches that Thief stole), theoretically putting her [[IncrediblyLamePun on ice]] until the Light Warriors have sufficently leveled up. However...

Added DiffLines:

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The first sixty or so pages have characters regularly using game terms like "HP" in their speech and talking about stats on their character sheets. These quickly became something exclusive to Red Mage (and Vilbert to a lesser extent), dismissed by other characters as his mad ravings.

* GenreSavvy:
** Thief to some extent. His attempt at using the TheoryOfNarrativeCausality to blackmail Muffin, for example.
** Red Mage believes that he lives in an RPGMechanicsVerse, so naturally he is very genre savvy about RPG tropes. His attempts at using his knowledge of tropes in practice are occasionally successful; however, [[WrongGenreSavvy usually they aren't]].

* HoldingOutForAHero: [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2007/05/08/episode-843-the-superman-complex/ Discussed.]]]] Truth is the Light Warriors just killed all the city guards so there is no one to fight backand people are unaware about the threats of the world except there is four idiots who steal and murder them.

** Black Mage regularly survives injuries such as losing his arms or being impaled by a spear, usually without proper healing. It's implied the Universe doesn't want him to die again since his fleshy body is what prevent him from destroying the world so it keeps him alive.



** Black Mage refuses to tell Fighter he went to Hell since even he doesn't have the heart to crush his idealistic view.

** Despite being the leader, Thief gives Black Mage a run for his money. Red Mage is getting tired of how many betrayal sub text there is at one point.

* LimitedUseMagicalDevice: Referenced when the "Light Warriors" come across Chancellor Usurper while he's monologuing and he attempts to defend his actions by claiming he was reading from a letter that disappeared like a scroll. To which Black Mage states that scrolls don't disappear, just the writing on them.
