** Chapter 28. Director Maugras discovers Bina is alive, and by extension Lulenski's attempt at recreating his son. Lulenski and Rjinder have succeeded in capturing the kids, and use Guuzy and Ayo to power their machine as planned, with West as the first test subject. However, a scuffle occurs and the machine hits Enid instead. And it WORKS. Overjoyed, Lulenski decides that Rjinder should be the next one to use it, but he refuses, stating he's become attached to his skin. Lulenski reveals she's heard some of the things his skin has said, and insists on him being next. Rjinder ends up knocked unconscious and his skin completely takes over, determined to destroy anything it sees as a threat to either of them.

* AwesomeButImpractical: Bina's monster is her heart. While it is extremely powerful, there's the teeny tiny problem that whenever it fights, she is putting her life on the line.

--> There is a strength in you. A will. That strength makes it difficult to be near you. You are a kind person, but it is easy to feel that strength and become wary of you. It is, at times, blinding. It makes it more difficult to know the right things to say. Many sense that strength, without understanding what it is.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: It's revealed early on that one of six powerful ARMA ghosts was destroyed after possessing someone. Nothing is known about the specifics of who this was or what their monster was, although it's suggested that [[spoiler: Abel killed it]].
** Violet is introduced as an EmotionlessGirl, but in Chapter 14, Abel finds a [[http://www.monster-pulse.com/comic/page-13-chapter-14/ picture of her.]] [[spoiler: She's smiling.]]

* ItNeverGetsAnyEasier: Abel has the strongest reaction to seeing [[spoiler: Lulenski kill Roger]] for this reason.

* InvisibleToNormals: Another of [[spoiler: Anima's]] abilities is to make it so that [[spoiler: Violet and anyone Violet designates]] won't be noticed. However, there are limitations - the larger the group being hidden, the more energy it takes to hide. There also are limitations - if someone already knows where the hidden people are, the power won't work on them.

* TheMenInBlack : Word of God says they're called "SHELL." Between the kidnappings, experiments on monsters, scary opaque glasses, and some ominous overheard conversation, they're not exactly looking like good guys.

** After [[spoiler: Roger saves Lulenski]] he starts turning, very slowly. We never see his face in full (it [[spoiler: seems to have LEGS]]), because...
** [[spoiler: Lulenski has a major FreakOut and picks up a rock.]] The next page is simply the kids staring in horror, with no noise, save [[spoiler: [[{{GoryDiscretionShot}} the sound effects]].]]

* ShellShockedVeteran: Abel has apparently been living on the run from SHELL for a long time, and it shows. He has trouble showing emotion and becomes nearly hysterical at the prospect of being found by SHELL. This extends to the point that he is willing to threaten the lives of others to stay hidden from SHELL.

* DefeatMeansFriendship: [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]]: Nancy and the kids become allies after her defeat, but that does not make them ''friends''. Bina even states outright that she only keeps in contact with Nancy because her powers are [[StealthExpert too useful to pass up]].

* DefeatMeansFriendship: [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]]: Nancy and the kids become allies after her defeat, but that does not make them ''friends''. Bina even states outright that she only keeps in contact with Nancy because her powers are [[StealthExpert too useful to pass up]]. Played straight with [[spoiler: Violet and Anima]], who are more selective and considerate with their powers after befriending Bina and crew.



* EvilCounterpart: Chapter 22 deals with the main cast facing off against a team of kids put together by SHELL. In many ways, they mirror Bina and her friends. Ozzy and Drummer are clear parallels for Abel and Rixis - both have monsters based on sensory organs (the left one for each, at that) and gain improved sensory input via proper use of their monsters. Bina and Ayo's counterpart are Ray and Cav - both have imposing and powerful monsters, though Cav (based on the body part with the greatest hardness) is defense-oriented while Ayo (based on the strongest muscle) is offense-oriented. Enid and her unnamed monster are most capable when separate, while West and Guuzy do their best work together [[spoiler: and even use sticking together to beat her.]] Claire and Luna are slightly different in that they're not a counterpart for Julie and Kera, but for Violet and Anima - whereas Violet became an EmotionlessGirl when part of her brain became a monster and the two try to keep things calm and peaceful, Claire is overly emotional after her spine becomes an apparent BloodKnight.

* EyesDoNotBelongThere: Guuzy has this as one of his defining monstrous traits. Guuzy's upper body seems to have most of his sensory organs near a vaguely defined head near the top of his body, but his eyes are on a different vaguely defined head near the legs.



* FountainOfYouth: It turns out Nate has this: due to his monster being manifested out of his pituitary gland, he gets transformed from a thirty-year old man into a child smaller than the main characters. Once he gets reunited with his monster, he discovers the process is controllable.

Once he gets reunited with his monster, he discovers the process is controllable. It's also variable - Nate later takes a form that's younger than his actual age but older than when he first met Bina and friends.

Added DiffLines:

* LaserGuidedAmnesia: One of [[spoiler: Violet and Anima's]] powers is the ability to selectively edit memories. In addition to removing memories, they can also restore or modify them.
* LatexPerfection: Only demonstrated to entertain Julie, but one of Edward's monster's abilities is to perfectly imitate anyone else's head.


Added DiffLines:

* TheParanoiac: Nancy, who hits most of the traits - blames others constantly for various issues, seeks revenge on those who do hurt her, suspicious to the point of irrationality, rude to everyone, and sees the potential for SHELL everywhere. Given what SHELL has done to her and others, a level of paranoia is understandable, but Nancy takes it too far and is unable to discern what actually is SHELL in the heat of the moment.


Added DiffLines:

** Nate, whose monster transforms him after he tries running from responsibility, names his pituitary gland monster [[Disney/{{Pinocchio}} Lampwick]].
* SinisterSurveillance: Abel can play this a little more literally than most - while he's mostly an ActionSurvivor AntiHero and not evil, he is capable of using Rixis to view things from Rixis' viewpoint instead of his own. And Rixis is his sinister (read: left) eye.


Added DiffLines:

** When finally revealed as someone with an Arma monster, [[spoiler: Violet]]. Best of intentions, including relieving Abel of his massive trauma and making things easier for their father, but [[spoiler: completely rewriting their minds without their permission]] is going way too far. Bina causes a DefeatMeansFriendship by pointing this out.

* BrokenMasquerade: For Bina and friends, the result of the attacks on their monsters results in having to let in their whole families on everything going on, including how many other people have monsters.

* HeroesGoneFishing: [[http://www.monster-pulse.com/comic/chapter-22-bonus-page Violet's father has to adjust to things like Ayo, Anima, Greenie, and Lampwick relaxing by the television]].



* JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope: Lulenski becomes more and more desperate as time goes on, with her attempts at trying to fix her mistakes in her early Arma research making her becoming more and more desperate. She goes from [[spoiler: killing Roger because an Arma ghost possesses him]] to [[spoiler: telling Ned to kidnap four kids to make SHELL's own team of monsters... and telling Ned [[ShameIfSomethingHappened that his daughter could be used if he can't find any]].]]



* ShameIfSomethingHappened: [[spoiler: Lulenski]] makes this threat against Ned to procure experimental subjects on Arma energy - kids are needed, and Ned's teenage daughter would be perfect if he can't find enough.



* TraumaCongaLine

to:

* TraumaCongaLineTraumaCongaLine: Lulenski in particular - first the business with Roger, then being continually blackmailed by the main cast regarding it to deliberately counter her own work.



* WellIntentionedExtremist: Nancy has a good idea - stopping SHELL from their experiments on people and the Arma ghosts is probably a good call. How she goes about it, however, puts many innocent people at risk. Plus, since she's paranoid, she's not good at determining friend from foe.
