-> ''"Long live the Game Over!"''

''Game Over'' is a series of FanFics and other media created by [[Tropers/SuperComputer276 supercomputer276]]. The original story was released on FanFic/LemmysLand on February 12th 2005.

The stories tell the tale of a small shady organization known as Game Over led by former AuthorAvatar [=SC=]. Most of his troops are solidified computer code. Together, they explore the [[TheMultiverse many universes in existence]], commit a few crimes (usually stealing a lot of cash, [[DistressedDamsel kidnapping cute young women]] to {{brainwash}} into slaves, or TakeOverTheWorld), and basically have a good time. Until their butts get kicked by the resident good guys. Then they go back to their [[SupervillainLair mountain lair in their own dimension]] and do it all over again.

The series is split into three different types of fic:
* '''Main File:''' Franchise/SuperMarioBros FanFics, where the series started out. These are numbered in the order they happened.
* '''Bonus File:''' FanFics of pretty much any other work besides SuperMarioBros. The category with the most stories (made and pending).
* '''Chronicles:''' stories where the Game Over or its operatives are the [[VillainProtagonist protagonists]]. May or may not be FanFic.

All of the stories can be found between the author's home page, Website/DeviantART account, SmackJeeves account, and Website/FanFictionDotNet account, all accessed from his Troper page.

----
!!The ''Game Over'' {{ficton}} provides examples of:

* ActualPacifist: [[spoiler:AC strictly uses her light aura cloud in a support role and never directly damages opponents. This, of course, is in correspondence with her SiblingYinYang with DC, who uses his dark aura cloud ''only'' to damage and kill.]]
* AIIsACrapshoot: Syzygy, created during one of SC's more GenreBlind moments. Subverted with the Core Corps; see CharacterDevelopment.
** [=DemonComputer=] is also this, since SC created him as an obedient Ztar, only to gain his own evil will when [[LightningCanDoAnything a bolt of lightning]] fused him with [[ThePowerOfHate SC's peaked-out rage]].
* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Subverted. [[spoiler:Elizabeth has a relationship with SC because she sees [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold the light in him]].]]
* AllStoriesAreRealSomewhere: The heart of the series and the basis behind all of the Game Over's {{Interdimensional Travel Device}}s.
* AllThereInTheManual / WordOfGod: [[http://supercomputer276.webs.com/gameoverinfo.htm Game Over Info]] and arguably this page.
** Also, ''[[http://scemails.smackjeeves.com SCemails]]''.
* AmuletOfDependency: SC can bend spacetime slightly to dodge attacks, can easily predict his opponent's next move, and can [[LargeHam ham it up]] in a fearsome way... but only when he's wearing his [[CoolShades Cell Shades]]. Without them, he can't think fast enough and is forced to rely on his yo-yo combat skills, which he was taught without them.
* AmusingInjuries: SC. In ''[=SCemails=]'' first ten strips ''alone'', he gets sent to the hospital no less than three times. ''[[PlayedForLaughs As punchlines.]]''
* AnachronismStew: Onieplugmitt, the only city in the vast desert of The World Where the Worlds Cross, [[JustifiedTrope by nature of it being a]] [[InnBetweenTheWorlds macrodimensional crossroads]]. SC does his [[VillainsOutShopping shopping]] there, as it's one of the only dimensions he visits and doesn't have a criminal record in.
* AnotherDimension: Although being the Game Over are dimensional hoppers this is a given, but Tamany theorizes that the InUniverse explanation for FourthWall powers (such as [[{{Tropers/Niv}} Két's]]) is a dimension that overlays over all other universes [[EldritchLocation somehow]], which contains fourth wall objects such as speech balloons and panel boundaries.
* AntiVillain: Most of the Game Over's Core Corps, especially after SC's CharacterDevelopment led him to believe everything is "shades of gray."
* AnvilOnHead: "Now, ready for your solid gold trophy, which is incidentally twice your size?"
* TheArtifact: Panchico
* AscendedFanboy: Sparkz when he was kidnapped by Amazee Dayzee during the Mushroom Bowl tournament... at least to him. [[ManipulativeBitch She]] [[{{Brainwashed}} had ''other'' ideas.]]
* AuraVision: DC, but he can only see how much dark aura someone has, as well as its "quality." [[spoiler:AC is much the same but can only see light aura.]]
* AuthorAvatar: SC started as one of these.
* AuthorTract: ''Game Over MST'' has this at times regarding the stories being riffed, usually at the end of the chapter.
* AwesomenessIsAForce:
** [[spoiler:For the past several years, SC has been paying top [[GlobalCurrency Dino]] to obtain, a bit at a time, vast amounts of an eldrich substance of great versitile power, which he keeps in completely sealed vats (save the pipes in the top for drawing it out), and you cannot look at directly, [[ShmuckBait period]]. The only thing indicated what this substance is or does is the giant label on the side of the vats: "PURE AWESOME." This stash is so secretive the [[TrueCompanions Core Corps]] only found out about it by accident.]]
** [[spoiler:Current plans for a large space cruiser, the G.O.S. Galaxy, have the stash being used as at least part of the fuel supply and power generation in order to invoke RuleOfCool.]]
* BattleCry: "IT'S ''PARTY TIME!''"
* BerserkButton: SC tends to be pretty [[TheStoic emotionally level]] in order to contain his SuperpoweredEvilSide. Attack [[MoralityPet Panchico]] or [[LoveInterest Elizabeth]], though...
** [[TheGunslinger Calcutta Joe]] generally only shoots to kill at those that damage his "(stage)coach" (a hovering cargo carrier and his personal transport) or his NiceHat.
** [[spoiler:Following the "resolution" of the Losroo incident, the ''entire planet of [[{{Tropers/Niv}} Tibun]]'' became one for SC, to the point where he locked down all interdimensional access between its universe and his.]]
* BetaTestBaddie: Syzygy, a black hedgehog in a brown cloak that was designed to be an emergency weapon in the event SC actually needed to defeat the likes of [[BoringInvincibleHero Kat]] and similar. One of SC's spells of being GenreBlind, as it [[AIIsACrapshoot predictably escapes]] and doesn't like him.
* BeyondTheImpossible: SC does do some things that circumvent other's expectations as to what is possible, although there's always the question of whether or not it always ''was'' possible and the other people just didn't think it was. SC's claim is that "anything is possible...[[InvincibleHero except beating Kat]]."
* BigRedButton: Some Game Over machines, where [[BillionsOfButtons they're often among the only labeled ones]]. The one on the CET-XX says "[[CreateLife CREATE]];" the one on the [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Eevolution]] machine says "[[RuleOfCool GO TIME]]."
* BillionsOfButtons: The vast majority of all Game Over-made button consoles, such as those on the CET-XX, have huge amounts of buttons, all unlabeled except for the [[BoringButPractical standard QWERTY keyboards]] and the {{Big Red Button}}s.
* BondOneLiner
-->"Tell me: just now... [[Series/MythBusters did you feel God?]]"
-->-SC to Amazee, who just got deep-fried by Sparkz's lightning.
* BoredWithInsanity: Subverted; although SC at once point considered himself insane, he eventually decided to be "differently sane" because it was a ''lot more fun.''
* BullyingADragon: SC. ''A lot.''
* ButtMonkey: A few examples, including [[VideoGame/PaperMario Doopliss]] in ''Mushroom Bowl''.
** {{Deconstructed}} with SC. It turns out [[{{Tropers/Niv}} Kat]] constantly beating him up [[ForTheEvulz for her own kicks]] mentally scarred him; one of the results of this was the creation of [[TheJuggernaut Syzygy]].
* CallingYourAttacks: SC (although he's gotten better at averting this for his elemental attacks), Calcutta Joe ("DRAW!" and "Bullet Train"), and Sparkz (as Franchise/{{Pokemon}} are apparently prone to do).
* CanonDiscontinuity: [[ShrugOfGod The author's still trying to figure out]] if this applies to ''[[http://scemails.smackjeeves.com SCemails]]''.
** However, it definitely ''does'' apply to the short story ''[[http://supercomputer276.deviantart.com/art/One-Wore-Red-One-Wore-Black-149255412 One Wore Red and One Wore Black]]'' (a SongFic of "Two Brothers"), which was written [[DoingItForTheArt just for its own sake]].
* CardCarryingVillain: SC started as one of these, [[OldShame and perfers he not be reminded of it]].
* CarnivoreConfusion: Invoked; SC used the fact he was a fox and Elizabeth was a rabbit to prevent trying to hook up with her because he was afraid he would eat her if he ever saw her naked (see TheMindIsAPlaythingOfTheBody), even when his relationship with Shard was going down the tubes. [[spoiler:Ultimately, it doesn't work, mostly because SC got over that problem.]]
* CasualDangerDialog: SC engages in this fairly frequently.
* CatchPhrase: Whenever SC goes off on a philosophical tangent, he tends to end it with, "Wouldn't you agree?"
** He also ends his motivational speeches to the troops with "Long live the Game Over!"
** ''Game Over {{MST}}'' has their own: "''This author is an idiot!''" (Yes, the italics are required.)
** MadLibsCatchPhrase: "I fail to see how can/will/is not ."
* CharacterAgedWithTheActor: SC is always his Author's age as consequence of being an (ex-)AuthorAvatar. Everyone else, on the other hand, only age up when the author feels like it (though at least in the constructs' cases, it's justified).
* CharacterDevelopment: SC started as a bad attempt to emulate Literature/ArtemisFowl, and now is more-or-less simply a person that wants to [[WalkingTheEarth walk the macroverse]] with his TrueCompanions having fun no matter the legality.
** It's implied that character development is the in-universe explaination for a [[EmptyShell CET construct]] growing a soul.
* TheChick: Elizabeth, Panchico, and Tamany.
* ChristmasEpisode: Appropriately titled ''A Game Over Christmas.'' 2010 saw another one.
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: The focus of the series shifting to the OriginalCharacter Core Corps has left the [[SuperMarioBros Mushroomian Division]] Commandos (consisting of official characters, primarily from the VideoGame/PaperMario games) stranded in narrative limbo. For that matter, the [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Pokian Division]], which employs actual Pokemon trainers and not [[EmptyShell constructs]], and any other official character that "joined" the Game Over through one of the other divisions. [[WildMassGuessing Presumably,]] they were relieved of duty after the ''Streamline'' short story.
** Lampshaded in the ''Mushroom Bowl'' Grand Championship comics. Bombette has been the announcer for the tournament long after the others faded out, and at the end she's glad to hear the tournament's over so she could finally "retire" to narrative limbo with the others. [[spoiler:Then she freaks out when SC announces Season 2, although it [[VaporWare hasn't happened yet]].]]
* CombatPragmatist: SC generally avoids this, as he usually only fights [[ComplexityAddiction for the thrill by being overelaborate]]. But when he starts fighting like this, [[LetsGetDangerous you know he's serious]].
* ComplexityAddiction: SC's schemes for much of anything can get pretty complex. For example, his plan for taking over [[ParappaTheRapper Parappa Town]] started with training Joe Chin in rap and ceasing Parappa's career as a rapper. And that's supposed to help take control somehow.
* ConfusionFu: As an ex-AuthorAvatar as well as [[MediumAwareness medium-aware]], SC has his Author's knowledge of fictional works stacked up in his memory, along with all their techniques and how they're used (at least as far as his Author can tell). With sufficient [[Franchise/BatMan prep time]], he can replicate those techniques and use them in combat, often against those who occupy universes where those works don't exist and often catching them by surprise.
* ConspiracyTheorist: While plotting to [[spoiler:kill Mr. Losroo]], SC became like this concerning the Authors, convinced that {{Tropers/Niv}} would find ''any'' way to keep him from making the operation a permanent success; [[FoodChains he wouldn't even drink the water]]. Though this is probably more due to his [[SanitySlippage increasing mental instability]] due to [[HyperspaceIsAScaryPlace overexposure to]] [[EldritchLocation the fourth wall]] for intelligence than any actual conspiracy against him.
** [[spoiler:He turned out to be ''[[ProperlyParanoid right]]''.]]
* CoolGate: The Interdimensional Warp Pipe.
* CoolShades: The Cell Shades, both versions.
* CorruptTheCutie: Inverted. [[spoiler:Elizabeth hanging out with the Game Over primarily results in SC becoming more heroic.]]
* CosmicKeystone: The [[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigi Cobalt Star]] SC created shortly before Mt. Majesty was hit by the cobalt comet that turned the mountain and other Game Over areas into its own world. Even though the assembled planet is only half the size of Earth and with a thinner atmosphere, [[spoiler:the spirit within the comet that moved to]] the Cobalt Star maintains Earth-like conditions and gravity... as long as the Game Over keeps feeding it power; otherwise, gravity cuts so much that the entire atmosphere escapes, and [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt the end results are obvious]]. Thus why the Cobalt Chamber has its own set of electric generators.
* CosmicPlaything: SC often feels like the [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall Authors]] don't just write him out of existence because they're having too much fun screwing with him.
* CrazyPrepared: SC shows how GenreSavvy he can be in his triumph over Amazee in ''Mushroom Bowl'':
-->'''Amazee:''' [[TakingYouWithMe What're you doing, you idiot?!]] He can't stop! Now we're BOTH gonna get fried!
-->'''SC:''' [[TheReveal Actually, no.]] I took the liberty of [[NoSell electric-cally insulating my fur, clothing, and equipment]] before I even left the mountain. In fact, [[KungFuClairvoyance the whole dodge routine]] was just to keep that secret until the last moment. ''I'm shockproof.''
* CreateLife: What the CET-XX's primary [[NoNameGiven still-unnamed]] program does: recieve information such as appearence and personality as input, and physically create the specified character as output. However, all beings made this way [[EmptyShell have no souls]] as they are just organic constructs.
* CreativeDifferences: Why SC and Shard were split up.
* CreatorWorship: In-universe through [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall Authorism]], although it's a little more literal as the ''characters'' are the ones worshipping the creators.
** Also, Amazee has a very loyal fan club. So loyal in fact, that she [[{{Brainwash}} brainwashes]] its president, [[AscendedFanboy Sparkz]], into thinking she's a [[AGodAmI goddess]] in order to boost her [[{{Pride}} already substantial ego]], and wonders if she could do it to the rest of them because she needs someone to do her laundry.
* CriticalResearchFailure: One of the seven young women SC abducts in the second story is one of the daughters of former stage star Eve from one of the Trouble Center quests of ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor''. However, because the picture of the person needing help in the official strategy guide was one of the kids (and in fact probably not even that), the author thought the ''child'' was the ex-star. Between the story planning and writing of Twilight Town's chapter, the author replayed the game and saw who Eve really was, and so it was hastily decided that the ''both'' of them were former stage stars.
* {{Crossover}}: Many of the stories with the Game Over world.
* CrystalDragonJesus: Game Over operatives, although generally nonreligious, hold some belief in [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall "Authorism"]], which basically states that each individual was created by a being called an Author that lives in another world, in a manner not much unlike OneOverZero. Also, those Authors have Authors of their own, and it's Authors all the way up.
** SC never uses God's name in vain. Instead he uses either "[[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Mew]]" or [[BanjoKazooie jiggies]]." Sometimes both if he's really set off. Or just "[[GoshDangItToHeck lord]]."
* DamnItFeelsGoodToBeAGangster
* DeadFic / NoEnding: Many stories in the series are concieved or started, but never finished. [[WordOfGod The author claims]] it's due to [[AttentionDeficitCreatorDisorder his shifting interests and having too many story ideas to flesh them all out in detail]]. The most infamous of these stalled stories is the ''original sequel''.
* DeadpanSnarker: SC, most notably.
-->'''Guard:''' I'm sorry, sir, but I can't let anyone in. This patient is very contagious and is under strict quarentine.
-->'''SC:''' Is that so? I never knew that being dressed in a [[HospitalHottie scandelous nurse outfit]] and [[BoundAndGagged tied to a hospital bed]] was contagious.
* DefconFive: Averted. When a freed [[SuperpoweredEvilSide DC]] storms [[SupervillainLair Mt. Majesty]] during ''Authortastic 2.0'', SC orders 666 to issue a "Gocon 1."
-->'''Kat:''' "Gocon 1?"
-->'''SC:''' Yeah, "Game Over Con" just sounded awkward.
* DemonicPossession: [=DemonComputer276=]
* TheDeterminator: SC
* DimensionalTraveler: Pretty much every Game Over operative.
* DisneyAcidSequence: "Gearjam Recital," a magical affect area able to be created by Boombox, is capable of creating these in order to either attack enemies by throwing objects generated by the lyrics of the song chosen, or by adjusting the times when the enemy strikes (physical or projectile) so that the attacks can be [[NonchalantDodge dodged by dancing to the music]]. Use of ''VideoGame/RhythmHeaven'' music usually allows counterattacks. [[ShmuckBait Whatever you do,]] ''never'' use it to the tune of Music/WeirdAlYankovic's "One of Those Days." [[EarthShatteringKaboom With good reason.]]
* DitzyGenius: SC. The man wrote a {{mook}}-creation program at age 14 and invented more-or-less hassle-free interdimensional transportation, and only recently has he gotten the hang of having these things called "friends."
* DrillSergeantNasty: 666
* DrivesLikeCrazy: Calcutta Joe. SC has described his acceleration on his hovering carrier as "zero to warp in five seconds flat."
* DropTheHammer: Tamany Hall, due to her being an [[SonicTheHedgehog Amy Rose]] [[PaletteSwap recolor]].
* DungeonMaster: The [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall Authors]]. While they do write the stories that guide the events of the macroverse, it's a general rule of conduct not to blanantly inject their tales with [[AuthorAvatar their avatars]]. Those that [[SelfInsertFic violate this rule]] usually get [[{{Troll}} mocked]] by their peers.
** It should be noted that if the Authors used their powers to resolve every problem that occurs in their worlds, [[StoryExistenceFailure there'd be no story]].
* ElaborateUndergroundBase: Technically an elaborate ''mountain'' base, but Mt. Majesty still qualifies.
* EldritchAbomination: DC has a few touches of this. He even claimed to be immune to someone's MindControl powers because Ztar thought processes are incomprehensible to "lesser beings."
* ElementalPowers: SC's most common magical attack moves are [[PlayingWithFire fire]], [[MakingASplash water]], [[BlowYouAway wind]], and [[ShockAndAwe electric]] attacks. He can also do [[AnIcePerson ice]], but it's not one that immediately comes to mind.
* EmotionEater: [[SuperpoweredEvilSide DC]], who sustains his existence by absorbing the dark aura, generated as one could expect by negative emotions such as anger, from others. If he eats ''all'' the aura, that creature's light aura collapses in on itself and [[DeaderThanDead their soul implodes]].
** [[spoiler:His equal and opposite, AC, sustains her existence by ingesting light aura, but she's far too peaceful to be greedy about it, normally only having enough to sustain her. She only draws extra when she needs to use her aura cloud, and afterwards even [[InvertedTrope returns as much as she can]].]]
* EmptyShell: All creatures created with the CET-XX programs act like they have souls but truly don't. However, it seems with enough CharacterDevelopment, they can grow one (e.g. the Core Corps and Panchico).
** This explaination is also [[FridgeBrilliance the answer to]] [[FridgeLogic the question of]] why SC doesn't just use the program to create obedient clones of the girls he wants instead of insisting on trying to kidnap the originals [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption (and failing every time)]]. As CET constructs have no substance, SC gets no satisfaction in exerting his dominence over them, even if he copied his mark's personality exactly. [[ComplexityAddiction Also, it's not as much fun.]]
* EnemyWithout: [[SuperpoweredEvilSide DC]] whenever he leaves SC's body.
* EscapistCharacter: InUniverse, SC realizes he ''is'' one for his Author, and he is ''pissed'' about existing just for the purpose of some "loser"'s fantasy.
* EverythingsBetterWithPlushies: SC on several occasions has sewn up his own hand-made plushies depicting various characters from various dimensions. Some of them replicate the abilities of the character they represent; the [[{{Kirby}} Kracko]] one, for example, can shoot lighting through its eye when it's squeezed. He also has plushie versions of every girl he wants to {{brainwash}}, to satisfy him until he can acquire the real deal [[LivingDollCollector and then treat them like plushies anyways]]; as well as a plushie of [[KillItWithFire Kat]] he keeps locked in the bottom drawer of his desk, and whenever he feels upset he pulls it out and slams it against the wall repeatedly, [[TheScapegoat blaming his problems on her]], in order to vent out his frustrations to prevent [[SuperpoweredEvilSide DC]] from gaining power.
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: Several G.O. creations.
** WhenThingsSpinScienceHappens
* EverythingSensor: The Cell Shades v2 has a radar for everything, from heat to ''souls''.
* EvilBrit: Dicer the Boomberang Brother is based vaguely on this, though he comes off as more [[AffablyEvil affable]].
* EvilDiva: Amazee Dayzee.
* EvilTastesGood: DC, but given he's an EmotionEater who applies the terms to the dark aura he consumes, it's probably justified.
* ExplainingYourPowerToTheEnemy: SC does have a bad habit of gloating about his abilities in battle, [[spoiler:but he is not incapable of averting it]].
* EyeBeams: The Cell Shades are capable of firing heat lasers from its lens, both at SC's mental command and automatically in order to defend a fallen SC. He usually uses them to cut through metal walls.
* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: the primary reason SC ceased his campaign for macroversal domination. Even after that, he has yet to really gain a single girl for his harem for any long term period.
* FauxAffablyEvil: SC whenever he gets into the villain mindset, especially as he delightfully [[EvilGloating gloats]] to his captives about what exactly he's going to do to them. He's been known to speak of extraordinary events and evil deeds as if he was just making small talk, particularly if (he convinces himself) he has firm control of the situation.
* FingerSnapLighter: 666
* FisherKingdom: Plothole portals usually enforce a Type 2 on those that use them, transforming the users to a form appropriate to the target environment. The Interdimensional Warp Pipe does not have this effect.
** {{Lampshaded}}. According to SC, there is an energy field between universes that causes these changes; the precise calculations made by the Interdimensional Warp Pipe allow the resulting tunnel to bypass it, thus resulting in no changes. He calls this energy field "the Fisher."
** [[http://ask-the-game-over.tumblr.com/post/59877933292/tamany-one-the-most-fundamental-elements-involved Tamany explains the whole thing in detail.]]
* FiveManBand / FiveBadBand: The Core Corps, though slightly twisted in that one person has two roles while two share the same role. Which one they are, of course, is dependent on whether they're being {{Villain Protagonist}}s or just villains.
** TheHero / TheBigBad & TheSmartGuy / TheEvilGenius: SC
** TheLancer / TheDragon: Sparkz
** TheBigGuy / TheBrute: 666 and Calcutta Joe (maybe that's why they argue all the time!)
** TheChick / TheDarkChick: Tamany Hall
* FlatCharacter: Tamany has not received nearly as much CharacterDevelopment as 666 (there from the beginning), Calcutta, or Sparkz (both through forum roleplays) has. She really often has no role beyond MissionControl. She's working towards developing into the TeamMom.
* ForgivenButNotForgotten: SC towards pretty much everybody. He's still quite sore about the means {{Tropers/Niv}} had Shard break up with him.
* FourthWallMailSlot: ''[=SCemails=]''.
* FreudianExcuse: SC's impared social skills due to [=autism=] resulted in many of his peers at school teasing him. This resulted in him wanting to {{Take Over The World}}s so they would respect him. Even after quitting the world conquering business, his lonliness and insecurity still drives his desire to gain an harem of cute girls using MindControl.
* GadgetWatches: The W-COM, short for "Watch Communicator," is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin - a two-way video communication device that takes the form of a watch. It also has some limited access to Game Over database lookup.
* GenreSavvy / GenreBlind: SC alternates between these depending on the need of the plot.
** DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Usually whenever he's GenreSavvy.
** WrongGenreSavvy: SC's MediumAwareness has actually made it difficult for him to see things from a [[WatsonianVersusDoylist Watsonian viewpoint]]. For example, in the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' spin-off of ''Game Over MST'', he attributes the plothole portal that transported the Core Corps to Equestria to the Author just wanting them to riff pony stories. Which was certainly the case. [[spoiler:The problem is he leaves it at that, and it doesn't occur to them that the portal was there because the SC Doll was (possibly) plotting something.]]
* GlobalCurrency: Averted, from a [[TheMultiverse macroversal]] point of view. SC's perferred currency is the [[InnBetweenTheWorlds Onieplugmitt]] Dino, but when he steals money from other dimensions, he has to convert it to Dino first before he can use it.
* GodwinsLaw: Keaton, the Game Over's head chef, has developed a few traces of nazi in him since SC has trouble telling French and German accents apart. SC has to keep telling him to stop calling him "fuhrer" on the occasions he does.
* GoGoEnslavement: How dedicated to his desire for a harem is SC? He has been known to ''hand-make fitting harem and [[{{Meido}} maid]] outfits for each girl he wants, [[ColourCodedForYourConvenience each in that girl's color.]]'' The [[FridgeLogic primary question]] is how the hell he's getting the sizes for some of them.
* GoMadFromTheRevelation: SC was never the sanest of people, but his sanity really started to slide when he found out he was an AuthorAvatar created solely for WishFulfillment. The consequential stacking of his Author's understanding of the worlds of ''every fictional work he's ever witnessed'' is also a factor.
* GrievousHarmWithABody: In ''Game Over MST'', SC keeps Calcutta from shooting the movie screen on at least two different occasions by smacking him repeatedly with Sparkz (who sits between them) while scolding him as if he was a bad dog.
* GrewBeyondTheirProgramming: Pretty much all the CET-XX constructs still around today, including the Core Corps. It's stated that Panchico was the first when SC responded badly to a semi-breakup with Shard.
* GrumpyBear: Pretty much SC's role when he visits [[{{Tropers/Niv}} Tibun]]. And he hates it.
* TheGunslinger: Calcutta Joe, mostly D with some elements of B and C.
** BottomlessMagazines: Arguably [[JustifiedTrope justified]] by having [[HammerSpace pocket dimensions]] in his guns that hold hundreds of bullets at a time.
** GunsAkimbo: He has two pistols and often uses both at once.
** AbnormalAmmo: Calcutta once designed a bullet that had the properties of ''pencil erasers'' in order to counter a specific foe that attacked with living drawings.
** RecoilBoost: "Bullet Train," which allows him to fly by using his pistols as boosters. He also uses it to fire behind him and ram headlong into enemies (which has actually worked).
* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: SC's original [[SonicTheHedgehog Sonic-style]] form; he justified it by citing other half-dressed cartoon animals. His [[SuperMarioBros Lakitu]] form also had him wearing only sunglasses and a shirt, but most of the rest was covered by his cloud.
** Calcutta Joe and 666 play this straight.
* HappinessInSlavery: Panchico
* HatesBeingTouched: SC, being [[UsefulNotes/HighFunctioningAutism autistic]], is highly sensitive to touch and as such other things touching him disturbs him. However, he doesn't usually have a problem touching others himself.
* [[HisNameReallyIsBarkeep Her Name Really Is Nurse]]
* HeroicBSOD: SC may not be heroic, but none of the villainous counterparts of this trope describe this: When SC learned that his relationship with Shard was over due to her [[LaserGuidedAmnesia forgetting about everything related to the Game Over]], his MentalWorld started to ''implode.'' He mostly recovered later.
* UsefulNotes/HighFunctioningAutism: SC, by WordOfGod and by extension due to his former AuthorAvatar status.
* HoistByHerOwnPetard: Amazee is defeated by SC pulling her into Sparkz's line of fire.
* HumansAreBastards: SC views humanity with contempt. Pointing out [[{{Hypocrite}} he was once human himself]] just results in him saying [[SelfDeprecation he's not all that fond of himself either]].
* IControlMyMinionsThrough: Indoctrination for most of the Core Corps (he created them with the CET-XX), Kindness for Sparkz (he not only gave him the Thunderstone he wanted to become a Raichu, but rescued him from an EvilDiva).
* IllKillYou: It takes about this level of anger for [[SuperpoweredEvilSide DC]] to break loose. Usually that requires posing a deadly threat to a [[LoveInterest loved one]], such as Shard or Elizabeth.
* ILoveYouBecauseICantControlYou: SC towards Shard, although they later broke up.
** His attraction to Elizabeth, meanwhile, is more along the lines of I Love You Because I Don't ''Want'' To Control You.
* ImaginaryFriend: The MadHatter [[SonicTheHedgehog Chao]], and the two [[VideoGame/PaperMario Pixls]] Ticktick and Larme, all are imaginary friends of SC. Their primary job is to maintain SC's MentalWorld.
** TotallyRadical: Mad Hatter Chao's informal jive. It's light enough so he's understandable, though.
** PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy: MHC's choice of accent and vocabulary is supposed to be reminiscent of gantsta. However, given SC barely has a real idea on what gangsta really sounds like...
** According to WordOfGod, everyone has numerous imaginary friends living in their {{Mental World}}s which make sure it keeps working properly, but they don't have a true form until their friend thinks one up (unless it turns out they start out as [[VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}} Censors]] or something). Also, fantasizing about other characters creates imaginary versions of ''them'' that live in the MentalWorld (although generally it's one friend per character, and fantasizing the same character twice just results in the same friend appearing).
* ImaginationBasedSuperpower: DC is capable of manipulating his aura cloud however he wishes, including compressing it into a solid shape. He refers to the shapes that can move as "aura puppets." The primary disadvantage is that any clumps of aura that get separated from him or his main cloud dissipate into nothing very quickly.
** [[spoiler:AC as well with her light aura cloud.]]
* {{Immortality}}: One of SC's goals, due to his fear of death. The construct operatives, being computer code, are also technically [[TheAgeless unable to age]] and most likely can't die from old age, but are just as mortal as SC is.
* TheImp: Sparkz acts like this a lot.
* InnBetweenTheWorlds: Like [[{{Planescape}} Sigil]], Onieplugmitt is a city-sized variation.
** A part of every Author's MentalWorld is their "Inventory," which serves as an InnBetweenTheWorlds for all of that Author's creations. This was inspired by ''VideoGame/PokerNightAtTheInventory''.
* InterdimensionalTravelDevice: The Interdimensional [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Warp Pipe]] and plothole portals.
* IntrepidFictioneer: The Game Over's primary gig. If they can obtain media, usually from Earth, depicting a story, they can use it to determine its dimensional ID and go there.
* ISurrenderSuckers: One story arc in ''[=SCemails=]'' had SC being blackmailed by an anonymous crazy weirdo that taped Elizabeth showering and wanted $5 billion in [[WebAnimation/TheDementedCartoonMovie kamikaze fruit]] technology (SC used a kamikaze watermelon in the previous arc) to not release the video on the Internet. SC sent a reply e-mail claiming to contain the instructions for growing such fruit.
--> '''Weirdo:''' "Step 1: Say the words 'Zeeky Boogy Doog.' [[PreMortemOneLiner Step 2: Say your prayers.]]"
--> '''Falling H-Bomb:''' (above weirdo)
* ItRunsOnNonsensoleum: pretty much every piece of Game Over machinary, from the [[SoulJar soul-bottling]] [=Conso-Extractor=] to the much-too-compact Cell Shades v2. SC attempts to [[JustifiedTrope justify]] it by it being {{Magitek}}.
* IWouldSayIfICouldSay: Fairly frequently. SC sometimes refers to other characters with a line in the structure of: ". Or . Whatever." This line popped up more often in the earlier stories.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: SC and a few other characters.
* TheJuggernaut: Syzygy. He has [[AchillesHeel only one weakness]] and SC [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy knows better than to]] [[FlawExploitation even hint at it]]. This weakness is [[spoiler:yeah right like I'd ever talk]].
* KillerGameMaster: Non-tabletop game variation; in [[CanonDiscontinuity usually non-canon]] instances SC has hosted his own version of several reality TV and game shows (such as ''Series/TheMole: Deception at Game's End'' and ''VideoGame/YouDontKnowJack: Game Over Edition''). He used his position as the host (as well as producer and every other position in charge) to enact his sociopathic tendencies on his hapless players. For example, in the [[CutShort canceled]] final episode for ''Deception at Game's End'', [[spoiler:he revealed he had been holding the executed contestants captive in Mt. Majesty's dungeon-like catacombs since episode 1 and the final mission for the remaining three contestants was to rescue them]]. The Jack Attacks for the VideoGame/YouDontKnowJack games involve [[spoiler:the studio being destroyed in a massive vortex and dropping the contestants into Hell.]]
* KillerRabbit: SC likes 'em "cute but deadly," and so his staff is more or less stuffed with them. He himself might apply when he [[LetsGetDangerous gets dangerous]].
* KillerYoYo: SC's prinicpal weapon in recent times is the GO-yo, a yo-yo form of the Game Over Wand.
* KirkSummation / ShutUpKirk
-->'''SC:''' Now listen up, Dayzee-girl, [[{{Foreshadowing}} there's no way Sparkz could possibly defeat me]], so save us all the hassle and turn him over to me before I [[LetsGetDangerous start getting bored of this charade]].
-->'''Amazee:''' Not on your life, pinky!! He's mine MINE MINE!! Why don't YOU save us all the hassle and DIE!!
* KryptoniteRing: SC originally had a WeaksauceWeakness in that his powers and life force were primarily "stored" in his tails, and removing them would cause him to fall unconscious and eventually die if they weren't returned (not to mention they needed to be able to move for him to use magic). His previous girlfriend was a [[ImpossibleThief "fluffy" tail thief]], but he kept the weakness as a sign of trust between the two of them. When they broke up, SC took the ring back and moved it to his chest, and now removing his tails is more of an annoyance to him than an actual threat to his health.
* KungFuClairvoyance / NonchalantDodge: The Cell Shades grant SC this.
* LampshadedTheObscureReference: The gang has a lot of really niche interests, which comes to fore most often in ''Game Over MST''.
--> Watch as no one gets that.
* LargeHam: SC, especially when he's wearing the Cell Shades, which allow him to focus and keep talking without stuttering.
** And especially when he thinks he can get away unscathed.
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: the concept of gods as "Authors." As a result, [[MediumAwareness SC knows he's in a story]] because ''everything that exists'' was originally created as part of some story or another.
* LemonyNarrator
* LethalJokeItem: More like ''Weaponized'' Joke Item; in at least two instances, the Game Over has managed to defeat someone by tricking them into saying [[WebAnimation/TheDementedCartoonMovie the Zeeky words]] and blowing themselves up.
* LightningCanDoAnything: Including blow out an airship engine and give sentinence to a dark entity.
* LivingDollCollector: SC has [[strike:a few shades]] a lot of this when trying to kidnap girls for his harem.
* LooseCanon: ''[=SCemails=]'', the Lucy trilogy, and ''G.O. MST''.
* MadeOfIndestructium: Both models of Cell Shades. The first model was sat on a table and a three-foot-square solid concrete block was dropped on it at a height of five feet; the ''block'' split cleanly in half. The impossibly-compact second version is no less indestructible.
* MadeOfIron: SC gets battered around [[ButtMonkey a lot]], but he's fine after a little rest, and you can count the number of bones he's broken on one hand.
* TheMadHatter: Even after he realizes he's not strictly insane, SC still revels in how different he thinks from "[[{{Muggles}} normals]]."
* MagicMeteor: The Cobalt Comet that almost hit Mt. Majesty instead reacted with the recreated [[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiPartnersInTime Cobalt Star]] in the mountain to transport the mountain and various other pieces of Game Over territory (such as the setting for ''Trailer Park of Authors'') to its own dimension and form into its own planet. [[spoiler:Mostly due to the fact the comet was hosting some form of powerful spirit, which moved to the Star and turned it into the planet's CosmicKeystone.]]
* {{Magitek}}: SC often builds machines that use magic to help them do the "difficult" stuff, a.k.a. the stuff a computer cannot actually do (see ItRunsOnNonsensoleum above).
* TheMainCharactersDoEverything: Villainous variation, especially in the first two stories. An army of expendable artificially-made {{Mook}}s, and SC and his closest officers are, more often than not, the ''only'' ones to go out into the field. This was brought to a head in ''Streamline'', where SC just has most of the extras remotely terminated, making the Game Over an OddlySmallOrganization.
* ManipulativeBitch: Amazee Dayzee.
* MassiveMultiplayerCrossover: The Game Over itself. Its primary members consist of a [[SuperMarioBros Fire Bro]], a [[{{Kirby}} Batamon]], an [[SonicTheHedgehog anthropomorphic hedgehog]], and a [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Raichu]], being led by a [[VoluntaryShapeshifting transformed]] [[RealLife human]] that has forms for all four of those fictons (although his preferred one is [[SonicTheHedgehog the Sonic one]]).
* MegaManning: DC, who can replicate most of a person's attacks if he [[DemonicPossession possesses them for long enough]] first.
* MentalWorld: SC's [[Manga/YuGiOh "Room of the Soul,"]] which is split into several different subrooms each of which represents a part of his personality, including living quarters for his {{Imaginary Friend}}s and where [[SuperpoweredEvilSide [=DC=]]] is imprisoned.
* TheMindIsAPlaythingOfTheBody: Usually SC avoids this thanks to the Cell Shades v2, but before that while he was still getting a handle on being a fox, he often had a desire to chomp on naked rabbits... [[http://scemails.smackjeeves.com/comics/186493/the-demented-email-plot-part-4/ even ones that were just on video]]. He seems to have grown out of it. (Interestingly enough, they had to be [[FetishFuel naked]] to set him off...)
** One other exception: he refuses to become human again because as a fox, he's "his own teddy bear."
* {{Mondegreen}}: The origin of Calcutta Joe's name. From a ''Series/SesameStreet'' song, no less.
* MookMaker: The original purpose of the CET-XX.
* MoralityPet: Panchico and [[strike:sometimes]] Elizabeth for SC.
* MorphicResonance: Pretty much everyone in the Game Over. One of the more obvious examples is when SC turns into a Franchise/{{Pokemon}}, his trademark black Poison Mushroom shirt turns into a black kerchief with a Poison Mushroom decal tied around his neck (meanwhile, the headwear of 666, Calcutta Joe, and Tamany simply resizes to fit their transformation). Might be justified due to most of the transformations occuring between dimensions when travelling through a [[AppliedPhlebotinum plothole portal tunnel]] and being replicated through [[ItRunsOnNonsensoleum Game Over machinery]].
* TheMultiverse: All the different universes we believe to be fictional are real; we just don't know how to get there physically yet.
* MultiversalConqueror: The Game Over ''attempts'' to be this, but they aren't nearly as successful or as powerful as the other examples. Granted, [[YouCantThwartStageOne their schemes usually make some headway]], just not on a multiversal level.
* MysteriousMist: DC's dark aura cloud resembles black mist. [[spoiler:AC's light aura cloud, naturally, resembles white mist.]]
* NewNeoCity: SC sometimes refers to [[InnBetweenTheWorlds Onieplugmitt]] as "New Babylon."
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: [[AvertedTrope Averted]] with the G. O. Wand powers; there's been a pretty much set list of what magic SC can do since the second story with few additions since then. Mostly played straight with the Cell Shades v2, specifically in how SC can use his "[[TechnoBabble immunity to]] [[MindControl external brainwave manipulation]]," including subverting the ThirdLawOfGenderBending and outright [[AvertedTrope preventing]] his [[TheMindIsAPlaythingOfTheBody mind from becoming a plaything of his body]] (handy given how [[VoluntaryShapeshifting he likes changing forms]]).
** However, the one mind-control aspect the Cell Shades can't block, ''period'', is [[DemonicPossession takeover by DC]], probably due to the anger that makes DC up primarily being SC's, allowing him to fool the Shades' EverythingSensor.
* TheNicknamer: [[SuperpoweredEvilSide DC]], with his [[SmallNameBigEgo supermassive ego]] [[UpToEleven bigger than SC's]], refuses to call anyone by their proper name. Most notably, he calls SC either "my weaker self" or "my other self" depending on how helpful he's feeling, and disturbingly [[TheFool Shard]] "my pretty." As in IHaveYouNowMyPretty.
** SC also has a tendancy to nickname people, particularly people he's teasing or doesn't like. Or both.
** Inverted with [[spoiler:AC]], who never uses nicknames.
* NighInvulnerability: The Barrier Beam can't be broken by anything; it doesn't even ''vibrate'' so it's completely soundproof. The only thing that can get through is some light, making it partially translucent. However, its location is space is locked relative to the planet it was created on, so SC can't move it.
** There's actually a sliding scale for this, it's just that SC almost never uses it. The more things the Beam [[AchillesHeel can't block]], the more mobile it is. It's in fact possible to increase the invulnerability so that even light can't get through, but this would lock the barrier in ''absolute'' space, usually sending the resulting construct spinning off the face of the planet as the globe moves on without it.
* NoInnerFourthWall: Played with, as the universes that the Game Over crosses the inner fourth wall too are... other real-life fictional worlds, primarily from video games.
* NoNameGiven: SC's program that allows him to CreateLife from computer code is only referred to as "the program." Also, the Game Over's world is known only as "the Game Over world," although in the latter case the author's still trying to think of a good name.
* NonIndicativeName: [[SuperpoweredEvilSide [=DemonComputer276=]]] is a [[VideoGame/MarioParty Ztar]] that [[AIIsACrapshoot gained malevolent sentience]] when it was fused with a large portion of SC's anger when he was [[LightningCanDoAnything struck by lightning]]. He is ''not'' an actual demon.
* NoodleIncident: A few time in ''Game Over MST MLP'', it's mentioned that Calcutta's [[DrivesLikeCrazy crazy driving]] once transported them into [[{{VideoGame/Minecraft}} the Nether]].
* NoSell: SC's [[PsychicBlockDefense immunity to]] {{mind control}} thanks to the [[CoolShades Cell Shades]]. Also, he made himself immune to electricity when rescuing Sparkz in ''Mushroom Bowl'', and it's uncertain whether or not it's still effective.
* NotGoodWithRejection: SC is usually this non-romantically on some sort of meta-level. When the rejector is {{Tropers/Niv}}, who delights in creating rejections as painful as possible, stuff usually goes south.
** This is due to SC's need for verification, [[spoiler:which 666 reinforced to keep DC from breaking out in the middle of Equestria in ''Game Over MST MLP''.]]
* NumberOfTheBeast: 666 gets his name from it. It's not intended to imply he's evil, but instead that [[PlayingWithFire his flames]] [[MoreXThanGod are about as hot as Hell's]].
* NumberOneDime: SC's shirt. The only way it's extraordinary is that it's charmed to always fit him, but it was that shirt with its decal that inspired his organization's name and icon.
* OddlySmallOrganization: Especially prevailant in the earlier days, where SC insisted he and his squad of third-in-command Commandos handle the important missions themselves. Even more literal after ''Streamline'', where SC brings the membership down to his [[TrueCompanions Core Corps]], [[HappinessInSlavery Panchico]], the security team, the medical staff, and Keaton's team of chefs.
* OldMaster: Yo-Yo Sensai Coaltrain, one of the great Skill Masters of [[{{Kirby}} Dreamland]], is an elderly GIM that taught SC [[KillerYoYo how to use a yo-yo as a weapon]].
** HermitGuru: Coaltrain's dojo is inside a massive cavern in a high mountain.
** TheWonka: As indicated by this quote from ''Streamline'':
-->If there were two things that could be said about Coaltrain, they would be that he was a very strong and fierce opponent in battle, and that he had one ''weird'' sense of humor.
* OminousMultipleScreens: SC is quite fond of his bigger computers having multiple screens. The CET-XX itself has five.
* OmniscientMoralityLicense: The [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall Authors]]. After all, they ''are'' writing a story, and sometimes bad things need to happen to good people.
* OnlyOneName: SC, 666, and Sparkz; the first two are [[JustifiedTrope justified]] as SC thought up the names for himself and 666, and the other by most Franchise/{{Pokemon}} (as a creature) characters having only one name anyway, even if not a SpeciesSurname. Subverted with Calcutta Joe, who is often just called "Calcutta."
* OnlySaneMan: SC often feels like this when dealing with those outside the Game Over.
* OohMeAccentsSlipping: Most of the characters with accents do this due to the difficulty the author finds writing them, but Calcutta Joe's varies the most of all.
** The level with which Elizabeth uses Elizabethan English often varies as well.
* OurDoorsAreDifferent: All Game Over facilities have metal doors that part down the middle and slide open and shut with a hydralic hiss. However, they ''are'' rectangular at least.
* PaintingTheMedium: Outside cooresponding text color in webcomics, the text of the Game Over's [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall Author]] is italic and orange where it's possible to have that option.
** During ''Mushroom Bowl'', Sparkz's text balloons were pink and wavy to indicate the state of mind control he was under due to Amazee. They returned to normal when the Red Flute was used.
* ParentingTheHusband: Elizabeth fears that a marriage with [[PsychopathicManchild SC]] is more than likely to end up like this, and so is trying to help him grow up before that.
* PerverseSexualLust: in-universe; SC kidnaps girls from worlds that his birth world considers fiction (namely, [[RealLife ours]]) that he finds attractive for {{brainwashing}} into slaves.
* PlaybyPostGames: ''RPG Over: The Treasure Trek'' is the transcript of one of these. [[spoiler:Same with ''Cave Roleplay'', although that one's still in progress.]]
* PlayingWithFire: 666 the [[SuperMario Fire Bro.]]
* PlotHole: SC has been using these for crossing about dimensions since before the series' arrival on SmackJeeves, though it took a while to get them to arrive at a specific point in the chosen universe instead of a completely random point. The Interdimensional Warp Pipe just creates a plothole with a directed tunnel.
* {{Polyamory}}: With the number of {{Love Interest}}s and others he's fantasized about, SC eventually figured he was going to get the best out of trying for this. Although there's a few girls he's gotten to know well enough for it, none have been brought up to romantic relationships yet.
* PopculturalOsmosisFailure: SC (and the rest of the Game Over, to a lesser degree) can tend to make references to Earth pop culture, even though most of the time group B is from a completely different ''universe'' and so there's been no osmosis to even take place.
* PostModernism: We did mention the [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall Authors]], right?
* ThePowerOfHate: DC [[EmotionEater rather literally]] ''lives'' on this.
* PowerTrio: Interestingly, SC has shown three different personalities / demeanors over the course of the series that match the trio.
** Id - The whimpering IneffectualSympatheticVillain that loses to the weakest of opponents.
** Ego - The compassionate / level-headed VillainProtagonist able to win when fighting for just causes.
** Superego - The confident, cold, calculating Villain Sue Literature/ArtemisFowl-wannabe MultiversalConqueror.
* PragmaticVillainy: SC knows when it's worth it to commit a crime, or which worlds to have a criminal record in, and when it's not. For example, don't have a criminal record in the world where you perfer to do your [[VillainsOutShopping shopping]]. He also won't bother worlds he has no interest in in the first place.
* {{Pride}}: Amazee Dayzee. SC as well in the beginning, although he's getting better.
* PsychicBlockDefense: Another feature of the Cell Shades.
* PsychopathicManchild: As anyone that knows him will tell you, the only things SC had ever socially connected with are [[EverythingsBetterWithPlushies stuffed animals]] or his [[EmptyShell organic constructs]] (Sparkz, the only other "true being" in the Core Corps, being the exception, but the damage was done by the time he joined). This explains why tends to view kidnapping and {{brainwashing}} girls akin to "[[LivingDollCollector collecting plushies]]." He has gotten a little better in this regard, though.
* PuffOfLogic: SC once tried to [[InvertedTrope invert]] this by logically proving someone did not die in order to [[BackFromTheDead revive said person]]. [[YouFailLogicForever It didn't work.]]
* PutOnABus: Galeforce, SC's [[SuperMario Lakitu]] cloud that adapted [[TheGreatGatsby Jay Gatsby's]] accent. Natually it disappeared once SC left his Lakitu form behind; WordOfGod now officially says [[spoiler:that Galeforce now resides in SC's MentalWorld, as his consciousness started off as a fragment of SC's and it was reabsorbed leaving his Lakitu form. It's implied Galeforce's presense in SC's mind resulted in his more polite and calm demeanor. A portion of him may also the be the artificial intelligence that allows the Cell Shades to function independant of SC.]]
* PygmalionSnapBack: SC's eternal nemesis in his harem-gaining plans. He believes his targets are better off being his [[{{Brainwashed}} obedient]] [[LivingDollCollector pet plushies]] than they are as free beings in their own homeworld ([[{{Hypocrite}} hypocritical]] as it is, given how much he values his own freedom); his targets and their friends (often including that world's [[TheHero hero]]) counter with how he has no right to make that kind of decision for her.
* RichBitch: Amazee Dayzee. When she {{brainwashed}} and kidnapped Sparkz, she paid off the authorities to scrap any launching device remotely near her seventy-fifth story penthouse so SC couldn't fling himself up to rescue him (on a side note, he [[TakeAThirdOption took a third option]] and climbed up the side of the building, which [[DidntSeeThatComing she didn't expect him to do]]).
* RoboCam: SC's Cell Shades give him a green overlay of this for its main interface. The first version had the display on the lenses themselves; the second version uses its neural link to him to make him "see" it in his mind.
* RockOfLimitlessWater: In ''[=SCemails=]'', one is used to create the water distributed by the Unown Water Company.
-->'''Unown Z:''' How do you think we get the water we distribute? From the mountains?
* RoyalHarem: The only one of SC's life goals that's kept intact since his beginnings is the creation of one of these populated with {{Bedlah Babe}}s.
* RubberMan: Calcutta Joe, who can squish and squash his rubbery body and even pull his stubby arms in thanks to being a [[{{Kirby}} Batamon]]; he once escaped from a pair of handcuffs like this. However, his body has to remain rounded in basic shape.
* RuleSixtyThree: One of the author's friends created one of SC named Yoko, but she's not a full DistaffCounterpart as she's high school age, lives with her sister (which is a DistaffCounterpart of the friend himself) who has to work multiple jobs to support the two of them, and (as far as we know) has shown no signs of wanting to TakeOverTheWorld. SC has met her, and she's since become one of his {{Morality Pet}}s as she serves as a refuge from the chaos of his everyday life.
* RunningGag: Amazee's increasingly-TwitchyEye during ''Mushroom Bowl''. Right when SC reveals [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome he shockproofed himself]], it culminates in a *biggest twitch* that almost covers her entire left eye.
** Through the rest of Season 1, SC's reply to comments by guest referees, along the lines of "Shut up and ref or something."
** In MSN roleplay, SC has a tendency, when sent flying by something like a super-glomp, to crash into a "[[ContrivedCoincidence conveniently-placed wall]]."
** A lot of people can't understand anything [[OohMeAccentsSlipping Calcutta Joe]] or [[JiveTurkey the Mad Hatter Chao]] says. [[BlatantLies Totally intended.]]
** The {{MST}} has a few of its own, such as:
*** In response to something like "it seemed well:"
--->'''Sparkz:''' Cue the [[MassOhCrap screams]] of the [[ImageBoards 4chan]] guys that played ''FanFic/MagiaRevolution''.
*** "That makes a lot more sense. Now if only we could have figured that out ''before now''!"
*** "''Excuse me, [[FlatWhat WHAT]].''"
* SdrawkcabName: It's sorta easy to tell that the massive CET-XX mainframe computer was based on [[VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor TEC-XX]].
* SecondLove: SC is on number four with [[spoiler:Elizabeth]]. The previous ones were Karma, Jinxy, and [[{{Tropers/Niv}} Shard]].
* SelfDeprecation: SC is not afraid to insult anybody, including himself.
** When he was told that [[{{Tropers/Niv}} Sashara's government]] was considering monitoring him because of his ability to CreateLife, he ''burst into laughter'' at the thought that anyone could consider him a threat. Granted, that was before he remembered he created [[TheJuggernaut Syzygy]]...
** ''Game Over MST'' has the characters often mention how no one reads their riffs.
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: SC. He uses "excruciatingly" because he refuses to use "extremely" for fear of giving [[TotallyRadical the wrong impression]].
* ShipperOnDeck: Tamany for SC x Elizabeth, since she wants the Game Over to be more like a family and that requires a mother.
* ShockAndAwe: Sparkz the [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Raichu]]
* ShoutOut: SC is particuarly prone to using RealLife references ranging from common knowledge to fairly obscure and [[PopculturalOsmosisFailure expecting whoever he's talking to to understand him, even if he's in a universe where what he's referencing doesn't exist]]. From numerous examples, one of his {{Pre Ass Kicking One Liner}}s (or it would've been if it hadn't been CutShort):
-->"Rosin up your bow, Johnny, 'cause all hell's gonna break loose in Georgia!"
* [[spoiler:SiblingYinYang: AC and DC in a sense, though her means of creation through DC being infected with corruption energy by Glandor means technically AC would be DC's daughter (no one goes with that, though). Their powers are even opposite but equal, as DC manipulates [[ThePowerOfHate dark aura]] while AC manipulates [[ThePowerOfLove light aura]]. AC lampshades it by pointing out to DC that with how much of a yin he was, a yang needed to come along to balance him out eventually.]]
* SideBet: A common pastime of the Core Crops during ''Game Over MST'' is betting on which way the story will go, including who gets paired with who or how a horror story's victim will come out at the end. This usually occurs when the author hadn't read the story all the way through himself before riffing it.
* SigilSpam: All Game Over creations (with the exception of the Core Corps) have a PoisonMushroom image on it somewhere. Lampshaded in [[http://trailerpark.smackjeeves.com/comics/342499/repairs-part-1/ one "Trailer Park of Authors" comic]]:
-->'''Kat:''' ...you built Shall?
-->'''SC:''' Yeah, I thought you knew. There's a Poison Mushroom emblem engraved in her CPU. Who else in the multiverse would do something like that?
* SignificantAnagram: Onieplugmitt; remove two letters added for readability and the rest rearrange into "melting pot." [[AnachronismStew How fitting.]]
* SinisterShades: The first version of the Cell Shades were good at this. The second smaller version, less so.
* SmallNameBigEgo: SC.
** Amazee only half-applies: being an IdolSinger (and EvilDiva at that) her name is anything but small, but that doesn't stop her head from having enough hot air for a blimp.
* SmugSnake: SC.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: Although there are / were other females in the Game Over, Tamany Hall is the only female in the Core Corps.
* SongFic: ''[[http://supercomputer276.deviantart.com/art/One-Wore-Red-One-Wore-Black-149255412 One Wore Red and One Wore Black]]''
* SpeciesSurname: Elizabeth Literature/{{Frankenstein}} Rabbit.
* [[spoiler:SpiderTank: The Game-at-Legs, a mechanical scaled-up combination of the [[{{Pikmin}} Titan Dweevil and Man-at-Legs]]. Comes equipped with a machine gun, [[EyeBeam twin laser cannons from the eyestalks]], and up to four additional attacks depending on what's occupying the pods attached to it.]]
* TheSpock: SC, sometimes, usually when he isn't playing villain.
* SquishyWizard / FragileSpeedster: SC, who is an expert with magic and technology and very intelligent, as well as very quick and light on his feet, but his strength stat is practically negative. The only reason he's still alive after several of his battles is because he [[GoodThingYouCanHeal heals quickly]].
* StandardEvilOrganizationSquad: especially when they're acting villainous.
* StealthInsult: SC is quite fond of these, though it tends to fly over his target's head. The others join in on occasion.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: [[http://scemails.smackjeeves.com/comics/386270/enemies/ This SCemail]]
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: [=DemonComputer276=] via SealedInsideAPersonShapedCan. He breaks out whenever SC's anger boils over.
** And recently an inversion was gained when [[spoiler:DC was infected with corruption energy, resulting in the creation of [=AngelComputer276=], a kindly Power Star that can manipulate light aura the same way DC can dark aura.]]
* SymbolMotifClothing: SC is almost never seen without at least ''one'' piece of his clothing bearing a Poison Mushroom.
* TakingYouWithMe: SC seems to be invoking this to defeat Amazee by pulling her into Sparkz's line of fire... [[CrazyPrepared until he reveals]] [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome he made himself electric-proof]].
* TalkingIsAFreeAction: ''SC will not shut up.'' Much like SpiderMan, he does this to keep himself from panicking.
* TeachHimAnger / BreakTheCutie: [[spoiler:[[{{Tropers/Niv}} Shard]] isn't the well of pure dark aura that [[SuperpoweredEvilSide DC]] desires so much because of Kumori, no. Because Shard's [[IdiotHero naive to the point of idiocy]], she's never tapped into her inner darkness; because of this, it has never mixed with her light aura, resulting in a [[SupernaturallyDeliciousandNutritious high delicacy for]] [[EmotionEater dark aura devourers like DC]]. In order to prevent DC's desire for her influencing his decisions, especially since his romantic interest has shifted, SC is working on a way to make Shard tap into her darkness, mixing it with light and preventing DC from finding it so appealing. So far he has a good lead: her crippling fear of [[NothingIsScarier being alone]].]]
** [[spoiler:This has been successful by making her think her best friend was [[FalseFriend planted by SC for when he needed a guinea pig]].]]
* TeamMom: Tamany is slowly developing into something like this.
* TechnoWizard: SC, [[{{Magitek}} sometimes literally]].
* TemptingFate: Possibly. [[spoiler:SC has a [[EverythingsBetterWithPlushies plushie]], [[GoGoEnslavement harem outfit]], and [[{{Meido}} maid outfit]] tucked away for ''[[LoveInterest Elizabeth]]''. He prays he will never become so weak-willed as to have a reason to use them.]] There are also a few other examples, such as in ''[[http://scemails.smackjeeves.com/comics/344208/wild-n00bs/ SCemails]]'' #50:
-->'''SC:''' Pfft. You and what army? (to himself) [[LampshadeHanging Already I know I'm gonna regret saying that.]]
-->*zoom out to reveal SC's yard filled with a small army*
-->'''SC:''' (still to himself) Hello, Mr. Regret. Come on in. Would you like a drink?
* ThereIsOnlyOneBed: Played with; during ''Trailer Park of Authors'', SC and Elizabeth are mentioned to share the only bed in SC's trailer, but there is no indication of any tension resulting from it and at the time the relationship was completely platonic.
* ThirdActStupidity: The climax for the first story is kicked off when it's realized Ludwig could melt the protagonists out of the cell they're trapped in, because SC forgot Ludwig was the only Koopaling that could breathe fire. [[ForgotICouldFly And incidentally, so did he.]]
* ThirdPersonPerson: Panchico for a time, to show how she viewed herself as an object for her Master's [[strike:pleasure]] use. This stopped when she needed to comfort SC going through a BSOD, the first sign that she was developing a soul.
* TimeStandsStill: [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Time Halt]]. Whenever fighting a [[UltimateEvil ''really'' dangerous opponent]] that goes too fast for his high-speed dodging skills, SC uses it to FlashStep. [[ImaginaryFriend Ticktick]] claims he can do this as well.
* TimeyWimeyBall: Although not exhibited in the stories themselves, WordOfGod is that this is the reason SC actively avoids time travel.
** Time coordinates are built into SC's carry-all Interdimensional [[SuperMario Warp Pipe]] in order to counter that [[YearInsideHourOutside time sometimes passes at different speeds in different dimensions]]. To prevent the machine from being misused as a time machine, it's hard-wired to not link to anywhere else in the dimension it's currently in (usually the Game Over world).
* TokenGoodTeammate: Elizabeth, despite not being a G. O. operative, is effectively this.
* TooCleverByHalf: SC.
* TrackingChip: SC has one on [[DistressedDamsel Lucy]] so he can rescue her when captured.
* [[TrademarkFavoriteFood Trademark Favorite Drink]]: As shown by ''G.O. MST''...
** SC: Pink lemonade.
** Sparkz: Gatorade.
** Calcutta Joe: Root beer.
** 666: Apple cider (non-alcoholic).
* TranslatorMicrobes: The Game Over [[TranslatorCollar Translation Collar]], primarily used by Sparkz.
* TriggerPhrase: "Keep the beat," Boombox's signal to start up a [[DisneyAcidSequence Gearjam Recital]].
* {{Troll}}: Sparkz shows signs of this in the G.O. MST. In particular is this exchange from episode 2-4:
-->'''666:''' I was proofreading some of the prose the general writes when he's bored, and making sure that when one person spoke, their lines weren't broken across two paragraphs.
-->'''Sparkz:''' I waited until 666 went to bed and then put all the errors back in.
-->'''666:''' ''That was you?!'' I should've guessed! I'll have you on court martial for this!
* TrueCompanions: The Core Corps, SC's inner ring.
* TwoLinesNoWaiting: The ''[[http://mushroombowl.smackjeeves.com/ Mushroom Bowl: Season 1 Grand Championship]]'' alternates between the titular match between [[SuperMarioBros Lemmy and Waluigi]], and SC confronting Amazee to free Sparkz.
** FourLinesAllWaiting: ''File 2: Crystal Catastrophe'' jumps between: Ludwig and Lemmy going to Dinosaur Land to rescue Karma; Karma herself, usually dreaming each night; Roy and Iggy going to Rogueport directly after the Game Over; Larry, Morton, and Wendy teaming up with the Mario Bros and heading for Mt. Majesty to search for clues as to what they're planning; and the Game Over itself as it goes around Rogueport and surrounding areas after the Crystal Stars.
* TykeBomb: Technically, all the Game Over Core Corps except Sparkz. SC created them specifically to do his bidding; the fact he regarded them as his "children" came later.
* UnfazedEveryman: Elizabeth.
-->'''Elizabeth:''' Um... Sir Supercomputer, [[ManOnFire your head is on fire]].
-->'''SC:''' [[CasualDangerDialog Yeah, I noticed.]]
* TheUnfettered: SC can be this sometimes. [[spoiler:His campaign against [[{{Tropers/Niv}} Mr. Losroo]] is one of the latest, though most of the only thing he's had to sacrifice is [[SanitySlippage his sanity]] from tapping the fourth wall for intel and possibly Két's friendship due to forcing an isolation between the two of them.]]
* TheUnintelligible: Larme can only speak in GameAndWatch-style beeps.
** IntelligibleUnintelligible: SC and his other imaginary friends, as well as anyone else that can percieve him and understand "Bleepbloop," can understand him.
* VillainBasedFranchise: The Main and Bonus File stories.
* {{Villain Protagonist}}s: the Game Over in ''Chronicles'' stories, and arguably any time any of its operatives are protatonists ever.
* VillainsOutShopping: The main plot of the short story ''Streamline'' follows SC as he goes grocery shopping in [[InnBetweenTheWorlds Onieplugmitt]].
* WasOnceAMan: SC. Subverted in that he did it to himself, and while he could change back has no intentions to ever do so.
* WatsonianVersusDoylist: SC has been known to employ a Doylist view concerning ''himself'' and events around him, especially his metaphysical importance as a (former) AuthorAvatar, and using Doylist explanations for whether something will or will not happen (which can sometimes lead to being DangerouslyGenreSavvy). In fact, his MadScientist superintelligence is one of the few things in the series to not have a complete Watsonian explanation.
* WaveMotionGun: The original story's [=MegaCannon=].
* WhamEpisode: A few of the stories are meant to shake things up in the Game Over canon:
** ''Cobalt Comet Crisis'' moved Mt. Majesty and various other areas connected to the Game Over from the SuperMarioBros universe into its own universe. [[RuleOfSymbolism As a further piece of symbolism,]] it was released on New Year's Day.
** ''Streamline'' turned the Game Over from a military force [[OddlySmallOrganization where only the head executives did most of the work]] into a small organized crime family by "deleting" all the {{mook}}s.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Originally DC was going to be imprisioned inside Panchico.
** Tamany originated in an AlternateUniverse story based on the ''{{VideoGame/Myst}}'' games called ''Game Over [[AWorldwidePunomenon MYSTery]]'' which involved [[DiabolusExMachina an earthquake destroying Mt. Majesty, and SC and Elizabeth being the only survivors by fleeing into a Linking Book that SC had found earlier]]. She was a former D'ni who was imprisoned in a faulty Prison Book, which resulted in her mutating into her hedgehog form via [[ILoveNuclearPower radiation]] when [[SuperpoweredEvilSide DC]], who was released in the cataclysm, released her so she could teach him the Art. She served as his accomplice and had a MadLove crush on him, [[RescueRomance likely from the rescue]]. She was later made officially part of the Game Over canon in ''Trailer Park of Authors'' and later ''Authortastic 2.0'', with only the knowledge of multiversal transportation tying her to ''Myst'' (aside from being the sole member of the division assigned to conquer that series's worlds, which SC eventually decided he wasn't all that serious about).
** Prior to Tropers/Supercomputer276 joining SmackJeeves, thirteen entires in the series were planned, all SuperMario {{FanFic}}s:
*** ''File 3: Ice to See You Again'' had SC free and control an ancient genetically-created [[KillItWithIce ice Birdo]] to take over the Mushroom Kingdom.
*** ''File 4: The Computer Conundrum'' was inspired by ''{{Tron}}'' and featured SC transporting himself and [[LoveInterest Karma]] into {{cyberspace}}, and the Koopalings would have to team up with the employees of ''VideoGame/{{WarioWare}}, Inc.''
*** ''File 5: Rebellion'' had one of SC's creations [[AIIsACrapshoot suddenly go rouge]] and take over the Game Over. SC had to [[EnemyMine team up with the Koopas and Mario Bros]] to take him out, although it involved him performing a HeroicSacrifice.
*** ''File 6: Ghost With the Most'' had SC [[HesBack suddenly return]] and try to resurrect himself. He eventually succeeds, although he still loses Karma.
*** ''File 7: Change of Heart'' had SC quitting the Game Over for a week to try and be a servant at Kastle Koopa, [[SubordinateExcuse part of the reason being to be close to Karma]].
*** ''File 8: Island Isolation'' has SC strand Karma on an island of Yoshis in order to test her leadership qualities.
*** ''File 9: The Clockwork Crisis'' has SC take over [[VideoGame/MarioParty Clockwork Castle]] from Brighton and Twila to convert into a [[AirborneAircraftCarrier flying castle base]] to conquer the world from.
*** ''File 10: Dawn of the Demon'' required of SC to call another EnemyMine on his enemies in order to combat [[SuperpoweredEvilSide DemonComputer]], who had broken out and possessed Panchico.
*** ''File 11: Reverse Gears'' involved SC taking over [[ClockTower Big Ben]] in the [[RealLife real world]] and rigging up a way to reverse ''time'' as a way to achieve immortality.
*** ''File 12: Double Bond'' has SC attempt to artificially forge a Metbond between him and Karma. The results are not pretty and it doesn't last.
*** Finally, the [[ThirteenIsUnlucky thirteenth]] entry: ''[[GrandFinale Final File: An Endgame to Remember]]'', where Bowser takes the initiative against the Game Over and the Koopa Klan attacks Mt. Majesty. [[KilledOffForReal SC dies for good this time.]]
* WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove: DC claims to be unable to feel love due to being made up of anger.
** He can't feel many positive emotions, or at least emotions tied to light aura. [[spoiler:This includes trust.]]
* WheresTheFunInThat: SC loves this phrase.
* TheWonka: In the first story, an [[VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor X-Naut Ph.D.]] in the Game Over's employ muses while working on breaking Karma's [[RedStringOfFate Metbond]] that he would've reported to their superiors anyone who suggested the Metbond be taken medically seriously as insane. And how SC, as the founder and leader, doesn't have any superiors to report him to.
* WouldntHitAGirl: SC always tries to prevent exerting physical harm on ladies (likely because he doesn't want to bruise [[LivingDollCollector his to-be toys]]). However, in an adversion of HonorBeforeReason, any women who threatens him or his associates [[WouldHitAGirl quickly finds out that disqualifies them]], as shown in the ''[[http://supercomputer276.deviantart.com/art/Anti-Fusion-116628055 Anti-Fusion]]'' short story:
-->'''[[EvilTwin Zoe]]:''' *cough* What kind of man are you, attacking a lady like that?!
-->'''SC:''' You're quite mistaken, Zoe. [[StealthInsult I never attack a lady.]]
** Calcutta Joe has the same policy.
* WritersCannotDoMath: InUniverse, sorta. In ''G.O. MST'' Episode 2-1, SC manages to show though some [[GeniusBonus basic calculus]] [[ShownTheirWork (that hasn't been disproven yet)]] that the elevator the characters in the fic are riding is going way too slow by RealLife standards, when the building is about three times as tall as the Empire State Building.
-->'''SC:''' I mean, seriously! Who the hell would want to spend twenty straight minutes riding in an elevator?!
* WrongContextMagic: G.O. Wand magic usually remains constant across universes, even in realms where magic doesn't work the same way.
* YouCanSeeMe: In his debut comic in ''Authortastic 2.0'', [[ImaginaryFriend the Mad Hatter Chao]] asks this of [[{{Tropers/Niv}} Shard]].
* YouGotSpunk: "Oh ho! A ''feisty'' one! My ''favorite''! They're so much more fun to ''[[BreakTheCutie break]]''..."
* XtremeKoolLetterz: Sparkz
