Added DiffLines:

* ProtagonistCenteredMorality: In runs where the "fainted = dead rule" applies to everyone, meaning that the main character kills the Pokemons of his/her opponents. The death of a member of the team will be treated as an appropriately tragic moment... However, the characters will conveniently forget all the Pokemons they have themselves killed in the course of the story.

* FridgeBrilliance: Squirtle and Charmander's little slap fight at the start of the Fire Red run makes more sense once you've seen their OriginStory.

* FanNickname:
** derp: a {{Com Mon|s}}
** to derp: to catch an IdiotBall, especially killing a teammate as a result
* MarySue: One of the biggest complains about nuzlocke comics (as a genre) is the main character turning into this.
** For instance, the anomaly-like ability to completely understand and communicate with their Pokemon is rather common to see in many Nuzlockes despite the fact only a single known person, N, has it in the Pokemon universe. It doesn't help some of the sue traits are the result of good fortune on their Nuzlocke run, the game's plot deliberately revolving around the player character, the real life [[GenreSavvy savviness]] of the artist being able to avoid most deaths through means of exploiting the RockPaperScissors. In a way, the character coming off as a sue is justified since it is less of an issue of bad writing and more of the way the game is designed....but this still isn't a good thing.
*** Some of the better runs have been deconstructing this, though. Along with the aformentioned upgrade to Plasma's legitimacy, there's also leadups to the [=NPCs=] (mostly rivals) feeling worthless next to the protagonists, and ocassionally Pokemon turning into {{Death Seeker}}s for whatever reason.



** {{Wangst}}: Once you apply FridgeLogic to the Nuzlocke comics.

* CrossoverShip: Nina is shipped with James, the protagonist of Death's Nuzlocke. (Apparently, they're {{Tsundere}} for each other.) The ship is known as [[http://kynimdraws.tumblr.com/post/42391191834 "Nuzlocke Grumps"]], and has [[http://www.tumblr.com/tagged/nuzlocke-grumps lots of fanart]].



* RonTheDeathEater: Bianca's father gets it worst, turning him into a StrawMisogynist and heavily implied to be a domestic abuser where in the games he was simply worried about Bianca's safety. Clay also gets hit with the StrawMisogynist stick, criticizing Nina's shorts as indecent and just generally being extremely unpleasant.

* MartyStu: The main character can sometimes be this at times. This is acknowledged by the author [[http://s7.zetaboards.com/Nuzlocke_Forum/topic/8742170/61/ in a recent Q&A session]].



* MartyStu: Kit often bends the rules. He often manages a setup with some Pokemon who knows how to use computers to get knowledge about things Kit can't know himself, catches multiple legendaries, and his whole quest in Platinum is to turn the situation into an EverybodyLives scenario.

* The Unnamed Protagonist from [[http://s7.zetaboards.com/Nuzlocke_Forum/topic/8579823/1/ Pitch Black]] is a [[NightmareFuel terrifying]], evil, sadistic protagonist. From the beginning it's established that he's NOT a good character, (Considering we see his first activities IMPALING POKEMON ON HIS PICKET FENCE). From then on, any Pokemon he catches he forces to fight and brutally murder his friends and family and sees them nothing more as tools, even going as far as to [[spoiler: KILL his own Pokemon]]. Basically, he's an even worse version of Paul. His Oshawott, Icarus, MAY be just as bad.

Added DiffLines:

* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: A pretty normal occurrence in Nuzlocke runs. Due to the rules, players often end up having to use Pokemon they don't normally use, and consequently develop newfound respect and appreciation for them.

** And it seems like the White arc is starting to grow it even further, by having it in full color, the art being a lot more clean, and not overusing the {{Lost}} references.

** Jasper the Joltik, who helps out N in Chargestone Cave, was a smash hit despite him being a one-point character. Apparently, his design and mannerisms reminded the readers of[[BravestWarriors Catbug]] so much that even the author [[http://ky-nim.deviantart.com/art/Nuzlocke-White-Extra-Comic-22-361793480 acknowledges this.]]

* HilariousInHindsight: In the Fire Red comic, Marowak's ghost is "defeated" in essentially the same way it is in Anime/PokemonOrigins.
