* InAndOutOfCharacter: In character, Bloody Mary/Jane is an AxCrazy murderer who recites nursery rhymes before attacking with [[CreepyDoll dolls]]. But it's probably just an act. [[spoiler: Her hate for [=TenKA=] is real, to the point where she whispers her trademark rhymes to Bandit as a threat.]]

[[spoiler: Her hate for [=TenKA=] is real, to the point where she whispers her trademark rhymes to Bandit as a threat. On the other hand, she clearly likes Kat and sticks up for her when Sandra's expressing doubts.]]


Added DiffLines:

* TheMadHatter: Jane is clearly enjoying playing a lunatic, and there are a couple of indications that a few of her screws are ''actually'' loose. At one point, she snorts when Sandra questions Kat's sanity. "Sanity is relative."

** Kleya may also have elements of this. While she is popular for her unique specials and skills she also is less then sociable, does not do anything to appease fans, yelled at them to defend her friends, and went the unpopular [[ActualPacifist Erbana]] route in the game. It wouldn't be surprising to learn that fans aren't quite sure what to make of her.

* MoralityChainBeyondTheGrave: Kleya's drive to stop being a villain and become a hero seems to be largely driven by memories of her mother and a desire to become what her mother would want her to be. Her insistence on always wearing pink and yellow, and on playing Erbana despite it's low popoularity are due to trying to emulate her mother. (Of course a simpler desire to simply stop having society at large view her as a villain is another strong factor in her actions.)

* BunnyEarsLawyer:
** See Jane. See Jane play with dolls and recite creepy nursery rhymes. See Jane ''utterly annihilate'' Kat with an excellently-designed Special and a pair of kama.
** Dude [[InvokedTrope invokes]] this by way of ObfuscatingStupidity. He plays the lovable idiot to the hilt, but is surprisingly good at finding stuff, [[TheFool apparently through luck]]. As a veteran [=TenKA=] employee, he's almost certainly far more skilled than he lets on, but playing with obvious skill would ruin his PluckyComicRelief schtick.


Added DiffLines:

** [[DiscussedTrope Discussed]] by Jake and Brandon when Brandon starts pulling out conspiracy theories about Kleya's father. Jake replies that Brandon's already ''in'' a conspiracy.

Added DiffLines:

* LovableCoward: The Dude's a popular character despite his apparent uselessness, because he's constantly running, hiding and cowering behind the rest of his team. The fact that his cards allow him to use his cowardice as a LuckManipulationMechanic is just gravy.

* WhenSheSmiles: When Brandon tells him that Kleya never smiles, Jake responds that she ''can'' smile, with a big grin on his own face.

* AnimalStereotypes: InUniverse, Jane mentions that [[CatGirl Kats]] are always odd.

** Sandra, Patrick and Jane are running their own conspiracy. Their objective isn't clear yet, but they're no friends of [=TenKA=].



* LinearWarriorsQuadraticWizards: Specials, which act something like magic, are generally treated as a big dean in The Game. Multiple characters have referred to the inability to beat specials written by a programmer, and nearly every fight shown in The Game was resolved by a special and/or was decided by two specials competing against each other. The implications seems to be that no matter one's skill with regular fighting without magic like specials they just can't compete; and those with the ability to create new specials outpace those without them.

* ALizardNamedLiz: Kat is a CatGirl. It's implied that this is a convention, and Kleya isn't the first person to play a Kat.



** In the game, Jane is a psychotic serial killer with a penchant for twisted nursery rhymes and creepy death dolls. In her Reality, she's a devoted mother who makes time for her kids in between game sessions.
