!!cactus's body of work displays the following tropes:
* BlackComedy
* BodyHorror / EyesDoNotBelongThere
* BulletHell: He loves this genre, it seems.
* LevelEditor: ''[=BlockOn!=]'' combines this with RandomlyGeneratedLevels--you provide the level layout, the program sets up the traps and enemies.
* LudicrousGibs: For those games which have blood.
* MindScrew: A lot of the games.
* {{Ninja}}: The protagonists of ''Shotgun Ninja'', ''Saru Ga Daisuki'', ''Ninja Flu''.
* NoPlotNoProblem / ExcusePlot: For most games, the "plot" is the single paragraph on the download page.
* {{Retraux}}: Most of his games are in a vintage, pixelated style.
* StylisticSuck: ''Ted's Wet Adventure''. His other games sometimes show elements of that.
* ViolenceIsDisturbing: Quite a few of his games (such as ''Dear Agent'', ''Xoldiers'', ''VideoGame/HotlineMiami'') share the motif of a protagonist instilling mindless violence for violence's sake, or because they are JustFollowingOrders.
* {{Vaporware}}: The third ''Mondo'' game.
* WidgetSeries: Pretty much everything he has done. Well, Weird Swedish Thing, to be precise.
