* GaryStu: {{Subverted|Trope}}. Dawitsu is [[WordOfGod openly stated]] to be a self-insert, yet is described as tall, thin and scrawny, oftentimes with stubble, is far from liked by everyone but at the same time isn't persecuted unfairly.

* UnfortunateImplications: Yutaka playing along with the boys in her class' [[HotForTeacher collective crush]] on her so she can control the class better, Hatate being stripped by robot arms (which admittedly are covering her with a towel and trying to give her a massage).

* CompleteMonster: Yuuka. She only cares about flowers and [[spoiler:has no qualms about [[ColdBloodedTorture torturing people]] for minor offenses.]] [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] in the "Interview fic" (which has now been taken off Fanfiction.net), where it's revealed that she actually treats well the band of musicians that she keeps in her house: [[spoiler:[[DoubleSubverted sometimes she even feeds them]].]]

[[AC: The Epilogue]]
* TearJerker: The ending... [[spoiler:Yukari and Yuyuko accept the series has ended, and sing 'We'll meet again', while the other characters hear it in their hearts, and seemingly accept their time is up as well...]]

[[AC: Entire Series]]



* CompleteMonster: Yuuka. She only cares about flowers and [[spoiler:has no qualms about [[ColdBloodedTorture torturing people]] for minor offenses.]] [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] in the "Interview fic" (which has now been taken off Fanfiction.net), where it's revealed that she actually treats well the band of musicians that she keeps in her house: [[spoiler:[[DoubleSubverted sometimes she even feeds them]].]]

* RelationshipWritingFumble: ''[[SarcasmMode Sure]]'' Dawitsu and Yutaka are just friends. ''Sure'' the [[UnresolvedSexualTension UST]] is one-way...one-way...

[[AC: Dawitsu's Folly]]]
* CargoShip: Aya and her press. {{Squick}}
* RonTheDeathEater: Remilia and Yukari. Rounded out later in the series, but UNFORGIVABLY so here.
* TheWoobie: Ran. She [[spoiler:is reportedly abused by Yukari, taken for granted and treated as inferior to Yutaka by Dawitsu, and is almost made to be a bargaining chip as part of Dawitsu's plan to get Yutaka back.]]

[[AC: Grimoire of Dawitsu]]
* CargoShip: Dawitsu seems to be onto Aya's overly-affectionate treatment of her press...
* ChaoticGood: Dawitsu even compares Mamizou to [[TropeCodifier Robin Hood]] in her antics of pranking and stealing from rich people and giving to poor.
* DracoInLeatherPants: Not exactly an extreme example, Dawitsu seems to not mention Yuuka Kazami in too much of a bad light, considering she's quite sadistic, even in {{Canon}}. Perhaps it's because he's a Youkai as well.
* FreudWasRight: {{Discussed|Trope}}. Dawitsu talks about Freudian Psychology in Koishi's article, and claims that a Male's Id is [[AllMenArePerverts far more sex-drive based]] than women, hence the patterning of Koishi's Id-based spell-card varies with gender.
* GeniusBonus: Several of the more scientific-sounding sections are based on high-level scientific principles, and even some of the more basic sciences go into such detail that it can be hard to keep up.
* MemeticMutation: The sheer amount of memes mentioned is practically innumerable in this book.
* RonTheDeathEater: A side effect of the UnreliableNarrator, Dawitsu is biased against many people to the point of demonizing them.

[[AC: Holiday Edition]]
* StrangledByTheRedString: [[PlayingWithTropes Played With.]] [[spoiler:Sakuya and Dawitsu certainly seem to be playing this straight, however, a big subversion comes in at the end, in which Dawitsu decides it's better if they are simply FriendsWithBenefits. This is further played with by Recompense, in which Sakuya breaks up with Dawitsu because she's found someone who takes her seriously, which triggers the entire events of Recompense...]]

[[AC: Dawitsu's Recompense]]
* EvilIsSexy: Sex Drive certainly thinks so, but possibly because she gets turned on by [[AnythingThatMoves everything.]]
* MemeticMutation: Ran and Chen are looking for a manual as they do not know how to play the game. How do they know of a manual's existence? Dawitsu once said "[[VideoGame/HotelMario If you need instructions on how to get through the hotels, check out the enclosed instruction book.]]'
* {{Moe}}: Flandre Scarlet has a ton of Moe moments. That, and [[spoiler:Yutaka in a [[ElegantGothicLolita Gothic lolita]] outfit, complete with {{Nosebleed}} courtesy of Dawitsu.]] The Author {{lampshade|Hanging}}s how Moe his depiction of Flandre in the Author's Notes of chapter four.
* OneSceneWonder: The Dawitsu Chibi clones that assist Marisa [[spoiler:in her battle against Reimu.]]
* StrangledByTheRedString: Finally brought full-circle after Holiday Edition and {{Deconstructed|Trope}}. After [[spoiler:ending Holiday Edition as FriendsWithBenefits, Sakuya breaks up with Dawitsu as she's found someone willing to have a committed relationship with her.]]
* TastesLikeDiabetes: {{Meta|fiction}} example, the Author mentions in the Author's notes that he thinks he's been overdoing the [[spoiler:OC x OC]] and that he's getting Type 2 (self-induced) Dialogue Diabetes. There's actually no overt evidence of this in the book.

[[AC: Jean's Magical Education]]
* AngstWhatAngst: Dawitsu actually ''makes a joke'' about his near-death experience in the last book, which actually surprises himself.
* EarWorm: Jean starts singing [[EurovisionSongContest Allez Allez Allez]] to himself.
* GeniusBonus: Byakuren's 'whirling snake' dream is actually a reference to how the scientist responsible for figuring out the structure of Benzene had his EurekaMoment.
* HollywoodPudgy: Kaguya apparently gets fat from all her inactivity. She dies of a thrombosis, but due to her {{Immortality}}, she comes back to life, and gets fat again. So Eirin and Reisen force her to go running and lose a bit of weight.
* TheScrappy: Tokage is hated by many readers.
* UnfortunateImplications: Yutaka playing along with the boys in her class' [[HotForTeacher collective crush]] on her so she can control the class better, Hatate being stripped by robot arms (which admittedly are covering her with a towel and trying to give her a massage).
* TheWoobie: [[spoiler:Good lord, Ran again, and the reason why's only mentioned within the last two chapters, but suddenly a lot more things in the series makes sense... Ran is, and has been for a while, in love with Dawitsu... so she's had to deal with Dawitsu going after Sakuya and pining over Yutaka for God knows how long... POOR RAN!]]

[[AC: The Forbidden Love of Yukari Yakumo]]
* CrackPairing: Sexy!Dawitsu and Idiot!Yukari... when Dawitsu quite clearly sees Yukari as a rival/enemy, and Yukari sees him as a nuisance/idiot.
* DesignatedHero: Why is it that Dawitsu and Yukari are in the right when Yutaka's been cheated on? Beyond Tokage's narration claiming this love is 'true love'? Also, once Yutaka ''is'' indisputably evil, Yukari doesn't really... do much that's heroic.
* DracoInLeatherPants: Yukari, in the main series, is closer to RonTheDeathEater territory, but here, she's emphasised as overly beautiful, innocent, wistful, and kind. Dawitsu is no longer a perverse, scrawny Otaku with no luck with the ladies and an annoying streak, but as the hunk of every Mary Sue's dreams. Dawitsu even gets to wear leather pants!
* FauxSymbolism: Sunflowers... flowers in general being a running motif... reeks of pretentious writers' attempts at symbolism.
* FoeYay: See CrackPairing.
* LesYay: Rapist!Aya and Rapist!Satori both try it on with Idiot!Yukari.
* LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt: [[spoiler:Hachuurui's 'death' is received by reviewers with extreme cynicism, reviewers ''knowing'' that Tokage would ''have'' to bring her SelfInsert back...]]
* MarySue: Both Yukari and Hachuurui.
* OneTrueThreesome: [[spoiler:The ending is basically Idiot!Yukari, Inexplicably resurrected!Hachuurui, and Sexy!Dawitsu all being together in a massive threesome. The end.]]
* RonTheDeathEater: Almost every other character involved except for Yukari and Dawitsu, Yutaka especially so. The only character that doesn't fit into either this or the [[InvertedTrope inverse]] is probably Yuyuko, but even she is out-of-character.
* SoBadItsGood: Dawitsu finally decides to stop bitching about the awful quality of Tokage's story and instead enjoy it for the easy-to-poke-fun-at crap that it is...
* TrueArtIsAngsty: Tokage certainly thinks so. To quote chapter eleven's author's notes: 'And another thing you won't see in Hebiko's stories are the heart-stopping action and the tragic description of grief that make art what true art is! Painful! Art isn't there to make you feel good, it's there to make you feel bad!'
* TheWoobie: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted.]] Tokage is someone who desperately wants to write a book, and does. However, practically everyone who reads it hates it, and the one person who does like it ends up hating it also, with most of the copies being bought for the sole purpose of creatively destroying them (if the reviews of the final chapter are anything to go by). She loses her friends over it, and she alienates everyone she tries to become friends with with her social awkwardness, and [[spoiler:goes through an unseen, unspeakable torture from Yuuka that leaves her clearly traumatised]]. At the same time, she mostly deserves all the crap she goes through, and is a genuinely pompous, pretentious, sex-obsessed moron, yet most would agree she didn't deserve the latter trauma...

[[AC: The Misadventures of Yukari Yakumo]]
* CreepyAwesome: [[DiscussedTrope Discussed]] by Hebiko in the Author's Notes, directed at Yutaka's performance when she first met Reimu and Marisa, saying she'd love to play up her creepy side like that.
* FridgeLogic: The narrator has this regarding Yuyuko's [[BigEater gluttony]]... she realizes she doesn't actually need to eat because she's a ghost...
* GeniusBonus: This 'definition'; ' her agreement with Dawitsu had made it infeasible- a word which here means 'of positive Gibb's Free Energy'' refers to an equation in the field of chemistry relating Standard Entropy, Standard Enthalpy Change, Temperature, and the feasibility of chemical reactions.
* JerkassWoobie: Arguably the narrator, on accounts that she lost something she was hoping to raise into an adopted child, yet still does highly morally questionable acts, such as MindRape.
* SoOkayItsAverage: The reaction of Momiji to the book, admitting it's far better than [[SoBadItsGood Tokage's]], but at the same time can't see it being marketable.

[[AC: Yutaka's Big Fat Youkai Wedding]]
* GeniusBonus: This speed; 'running from the awkward situation faster than a cathode ray' isn't actually that fast, and most people can run faster than a Cathode Ray.
* LesYay: A little between [[spoiler:Merlin and Youmu]], if you read between the lines. As well as, you know, the ''[[CaptainObvious freaking girl on girl wedding the book centers around]]''

* FanPreferredCouple: In a fanfic, believe it or not. Some reviewers of Dawitsu's Recompense expressed that Dawitsu and [[TheNotLoveInterest Yutaka]] should be together. One reviewer (most likely [[ForTheLulz sarcastically]]) suggested an [[OneTrueThreesome OT3]] of Dawitsu, Yutaka and Alice. [[http://www.fanfiction.net/r/7712756/0/1/ The review is here, for Chapter 24.]]

[[spoiler:It ends up happening.]]
