* JavelinThrower: The Spear Bearers. Rak is a notable example. Subverted somewhat by Novick who throws boomerang-like weapons instead of traditional spears.

* JavelinThrower: The Spear Bearers. Rak is a notable example.example[[note]]Though in one strip after he gets his new weapon it's shown that he didn't realize he was supposed to ''throw'' it; he was just holding it and poking people with it[[/note]]. Subverted somewhat by Novick who throws boomerang-like weapons instead of traditional spears.

Added DiffLines:

* PoliceAreUseless: The Slayer's job is to kill the king and the nobility. You'd think they'd work at hiding their identity, but instead FUG announces official "Slayer Nominees". The Slayer Nominees ''are'' tougher than their classifications suggest, but the ones we've seen so far were declared when they were at the floor 20-40 (out of 134) range. FUG seems to be practically daring the rankers (who have been all the way up to floor 134 and back) and the government (the King and the heads of the Ten Great Families are all rankers themselves, and several families have multiple rankers) to do something about it.

* DudeLooksLikeALady: Ho and Yu Han Sung, the Second Floor's test director. The fans and translators thought for a long time that they were women. Done again with Nya Nia, with the author referencing his disposition to confuse the readers ("Huh? You're really a guy? Well, that was confusing." -- Wangnan to Nia). And then Baam stole Yuri's hairstyle and got assigned to be roommates with Yeon, who fully expected him to be a girl... until he walks into the male showers.

** There's also Koon Aguero Agnis/Kun Aguero Agnis. It was changed to Koon Aguero after the author confirmed his name's origin.

Added DiffLines:

* GenderBlenderName: Probably an accident as the author is Korean and the strip is written in that language and the names are later Romanized, but Khun Aguero ''Agnes'' and Jue Viole ''Grace'', despite their third names, are both male. "Viole" itself isn't the most masculine-sounding name in English.

* SuperDeformed: Rak get shrunk after an unlucky encounter with Yu Han Sung. Other than that, it's often used for comedic effect.

** First Emperor's "First Emperor's Scorching Fist of Death", which was sadly never used, and was also a rip-off of Urek Mazino's 'legendary' technique "Supreme King's Scorching Fist of Death".

* PowerLevels: As the names suggest, Rankers have a ranking based in theory on how well they did climbing the Tower (but, in practice, based on how powerful they are) as well as the influence they have in the Tower. Exact numbers are rarely bandied about, though, aside from a listing the [[WordOfGod author]] provided of the top ten and a general distinction between the (top thousand) 'High Rankers' and the rest.

Regulars are rated according to how far they've gotten, and given letter grades rating them within that based on how promising they are in their current group.


Added DiffLines:

* PrecisionFStrike: Lero-Ro delivers one early on when he gives a speech saying that "those who are not worthy should FUCK OFF", made all the more shocking because he's one of the kindest and most soft-spoken characters in the story.
