* ArtisticLicenseEconomics: For a period of time they employed a pair of economists to keep the system stable. However, after a change of management in 2013 the economists were fired and [[BribingYourWayToVictory items that give players millions (later billions) of gold instantly]] began to be released, leading to [[RidiculousFutureInflation out-of-control hyperinflation]]. Some junk items now sell for thousands of in-game currency.

* DoNotCallMePaul: [[EnforcedTrope Enforced]] in the forums for the CEO ([[spoiler:[[HeWhoMustNotBeNamed Gary Schofield]]]]) and the COO ([[spoiler:[[HeWhoMustNotBeNamed Jason Loia]]]]) since the rule change in December 16, 2013, even if [[EverybodyKnewAlready it's available through a quick Google search]].


Added DiffLines:

* TheScottishTrope: The former CEO ([[spoiler:[[HeWhoMustNotBeNamed Gary Schofield]]]]) and the former COO ([[spoiler:[[HeWhoMustNotBeNamed Jason Loia]]]]) gained the reputation of [[ExecutiveMeddling being too profit-minded]]. Once users discovered [[spoiler:Loia]]'s presentation about the use of Skinner box methods in designing games, which mentioned as an example [[BribingYourWayToVictory a cash-only product whose only purpose is to generate gold]], Gaia's users were pushed off the edge and [[InternetCounterattack demanded their resignation]]. They responded by threatening to ban anyone who mentioned them by their names or titles, which earned [[spoiler:Schofield]] in particular the nicknames of "[[Franchise/HarryPotter Goldemort]]" and "he-who-must-not-be-named". Even after they handed Gaia back to Lanzer, the use of the nickname "Goldemort" was met with censorship until it was put to an end.

* HerCodeNameWasMarySue: The Crystal Overdrive RIG took the form of Rina and Kanoko's attempt to co-write a fanfiction. Kanoko tried to center it around her character, an amalgamation of CommonMarySueTraits, while Rina tried to tone it down (mainly by shifting the focus to [[PossessionSue her version of Ian]]) and stick to the original story.

* FunnyOctopus:
** Aquarium Cuttlefish are as difficult to please as they are adorable. One of the items they can drop when they die suggests that they are {{Emo}}. In addition, the Squid set and The Experiment play tentacles [[BlackComedyRape for laughs]].
** The Yemaya's Pearl item has a pose in which purple tentacles replace the wearer's legs. Yeah.

* PowersThatBe: The "Giant Holy Head" a {{God}}-type being that appeared to Adult Timmy as a... giant human head, who [[YouLookFamiliar looked rather familiar]] by the way. The Giant Holy Head took pity upon Timmy and his unfortunate life (mainly due to Dr. Singh's [[SarcasmMode wonderful parental skills]]), and gave him three arbitrary options to change it (with the help of his fellow Gaians!!). The choices were 1) [[DeusExMachina Become a child]] again and be placed with a suitable guardian, 2) Shed his mortal form and [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence become an Evolving Item]] or 3) [[AnvilsThatNeededToBeDropped Divine punishment]] for Dr. Singh.

** The badges. The main site will track the ones for killing certain numbers of each type of enemy, but other flavors (such as finding a certain location of the map) aren't hinted at. There are also the holiday-only badges, which may or may not be LostForever depending on whether the same type of activity is repeated next year.

** Air Shark, originally a fan elaboration on the AprilFoolsDay joke, has become an actual Animated monster that occassionally drops bombs on Barton Town.
** Not to mention the Chyaku Norisu Clan, which was named after a Monthly Collectible scarf. (Which was named after... [[ChuckNorris You know...]])
