* BreakingTheFellowship: Riff's friendship with Torg and Zoe is utterly destroyed when Riff [[spoiler:hurts Sam due to Sam being a vampire]]. Torg initially decides to banish him, but then decides that Riff's tech expertise is too important in the fight against Hereti Corp. So instead, he gives Riff a death threat, puts him in charge, and leaves the group with Zoe. Bunbun then references the trope, saying that without the combination of Riff's tech ''and'' Torg's leadership, they are all doomed.

Riff ultimately proves Bunbun right by becoming CommanderContrarian, and drives everyone else away with his callous and impulsive leadership.

* {{Badass}}:
** At some point or another, nearly all the main cast has moments of this. Bun-bun, Riff and Oasis have the most moments, and Torg's had quite a few chances to show off with his sword, especially since he TookALevelInBadass during That Which Redeems.
** Let's not forget the previous resident of the Kesandru House, who, upon being haunted for months by a pair of ghosts, ''killed himself so he could fight back effectively.''



* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes?: Riff, the [[{{Badass}} badassest]] member of the team, is mortally afraid of clowns - and the department of motor vehicles.

* CassandraTruth: Hereti Corp attempts to threaten a US senator by eliminating a restaurant he is fond of and accidentally eliminates a bus full of nuns instead. The incident is a very public "Zappo!", causing the bus to vanish in front of plenty of eyewitnesses and with plenty of evidence left behind. But using their control over social media via Grab-all, a Google parody, they completely silence the matter by framing anyone who buys the story as a loony ConspiracyTheorist.

** Grab-all, a parody of Google, offers free services on which people put their personal information. Grab-all happens to make money as an information broker. [[spoiler:They are also one group of elves in Santa's employ]].
** Hereti Corp has also tried its hand at this with the mascot of their pizza restaurant, Sir Veillance, an IncrediblyObviousBug in the form of a happy meal toy. Grab-all finds their amateur efforts adorable.

** Hereti Corp has also tried its hand at this with the mascot of their pizza restaurant, Sir Veillance, an IncrediblyObviousBug in the form of a happy meal toy. Grab-all finds their amateur efforts adorable. But then they conquer Grab-all by eliminating its CEO and forcing its second to sell. They effectively take Grab-all's control to its natural conclusion in order to cover up their own crimes, track opponents for elimination, and promote their own interests.
