->''"From the makers of ''TV Tropes: The Website!'', ''TV Tropes: The Card Game!'' and ''TV Tropes: The Flamethrower!'' comes a brand new brand name in webcomics!"''

[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tv_tropes_the_webcomic_2739.png]]
[[caption-width-right:300:Clockwise from middle-right: [[TheSmartGuy Ayers]], [[TheLancer Ere]], [[TheHero Report]], [[TheBigGuy Yug]], [[TheChick Ecivres]]. Background: [[BigBad Dab]] [[note]]For authorship and download see [[ImageLinks/TVTropesTheWebcomic Image Links]].[[/note]]]]

TVTropesTheWebcomic is a very simple [[NotableSliceOfLifeWebcomics slice of life webcomic]]. Well, okay, perhaps with a little [[NotableEmbellishedWebcomics embellisment]] and some [[NotableSciFiWebcomics sci-fi]], maybe a little [[NotableFantasyWebcomics fantasy]], lots of [[NotableGagPerDayWebcomics gags]], and some [[CutAndPasteComic cut and pastes]]. And lots of {{Metafiction}}.

The comic started off as an epic saga following the struggle of the NGOSuperpower W.I.K.I. ('''W'''e '''I'''nvestigate '''[[XtremeKoolLetterz K]]'''[[XtremeKoolLetterz ool]] '''I'''ncidents) to stop its breakaway organization [[MurderInc K.I.L.A.]] ('''K'''illing '''I'''s '''L'''ike '''A'''wesome) from [[WorldDomination Taking Over The World]]. The narration followed [[UnfazedEveryman Report Siht]], a beginning agent of W.I.K.I. from the New Trope City, whose BigBrotherMentor Dab Gib goes missing on one of their missions. Report and his new partner, the [[{{Tsundere}} short tempered]] Ere D. Nust, infiltrate K.I.L.A. and discover the [[EvilMentor shocking truth]]: its leader is none other than Dab Gib himself! Aided by Dab's brother Yug, the sexy agent "Ms." Ecivres Naf, and the mysterious freelancer Bertrand Ayers, Report and Ere set out to stop K.I.L.A. once and for all.

Without spoiling much more of the original arc (it was also the longest one, and rightly so), Report eventually left W.I.K.I. and started a private OccultDetective business with Ere, [[SubordinateExcuse who followed him into retirement]]. Since then, the comic consisted of largely standalone story arcs (though frequent {{Call Back}}s prevented it from becoming an utter ContinuitySnarl), which explored [[PostModernism all kinds of themes and settings]] over its [[ArchiveTrawl long,]] [[ArchiveBinge long]] [[LongRunner run]]. So far the comic featured, among other things: a TimeTravel arc, AlternateUniverse arcs, a [[BeachEpisode Beach Arc]], a [[SickEpisode Blindness Arc]], a [[NoirEpisode Noir Arc]], a few FamilyDrama arcs, a [[MusicalEpisode Musical Arc]], multiple [[RPGEpisode Gaming Arcs]], a [[WhatDoTheyFearEpisode What Do They Fear Arc]], and, of course, [[ParodyEpisode Parody Arcs]] (but no [[RecapEpisode Recap Arcs]], we promise!). After a couple of years, the original author [[OrphanedSeries abandoned the comic]] and it was picked up by a series of "guest authors". The arcs written by the original author became known as the "GoldenAge", and the comic is on the post-BronzeAge [[SeriesHiatus hiatus]] at the moment.

The comic can be read [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/JustForFun/TVTropesTheWebcomic here]]. [[spoiler:Actually, no. This ''comic'' does not exist ([[{{Defictionalization}} yet]]) but this page was deliberately styled after existing webcomic pages to perpetuate the illusion of the contrary. The ''story'' troped here, however, is [[FictionIdentityPostulate as real as any]]--it's just being written by a cadre of fellow tropers and published in a deliberately confusing {{metafiction}}al format.]] Compare ''AvatarAndTheAirbendingFellowshipOfVampireSlayers''.

'''Please add character-specific tropes to the [[Characters/TVTropesTheWebcomic character sheet]].''' The comic also has a [[Recap/TVTropesTheWebcomic list of published story arcs]].
----
!!'''This [[spoiler:fake]] webcomic provides examples of:'''

* AbsurdlySpaciousSewer: The sewers beneath the New Trope City are huge.
* AggressiveNegotiations: Ere and Retrope make a point by going from the main entrance of Don Marcone's mansion to his private study and leaving a trail of bodies behind. Marcone is quite ready to negotiate a permanent truce between himself and Retrope (who represents the entirety of her father's remaining mob).
* AllJustADream: [[spoiler:Immediately after his "death" in "Worst Case Scenario", Gabe wakes up on a hospital bed with Betrand Ayers standing next to him and claiming that everything that happened has been a drug-induced hallucination.]]
* AltText: For the first few strips, it's just an additional joke, but after the tenth strip, they start becoming surreal rambles on the meaning of time, space, and corndogs.
* AmbiguousGender:
** It is never made clear which gender Erort belongs to. Retrope ''may'' have actually found that out, [[SexyDiscretionShot but...]]
** A LongHairedPrettyBoy (maybe?) appears in a recent strip, [[DiagonalCut slices a baddie in half]] then vanishes. Maybe [[ChekhovsGunman he/she'll be important later]]…
* AncientConspiracy: The Knights Who Say Yay in The Yay Agenda arc.
* Anti-Villain: Sun-Dog, Lili, Spirit, Shooter, and Myrrah are only villains by virtue of working for R.E.T.C.O.N. Other than that, there's nothing truly evil about them.
* AnyoneCanDie:
** The "Worst Case Scenario" arc establishes it by [[spoiler:killing Regnis]].
** And then proceeds to further enforce it by [[spoiler:killing off Report. ''Again.'']]
* ArchiveTrawl: Dear lord you'll be doing this a lot.
* ArtShift: All SliceOfLife sequences showing Report's routine life are DeliberatelyMonochrome, spawning fan theories about how they are his "real life", whereas the (colorful) rest of the comic is just a product of his wild imagination.
* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever:
** [[spoiler:Dab Gib's]] hell-demon army included several {{Kaiju}}-sized monsters.
** Also, [[spoiler:the [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever 50-foot]] {{catgirl}} in recent strips.]]
* AuthorAppeal:
** Let's just say that almost every woman in the comic suffers from back pains. [[spoiler: Until [[AuthorAvatar Yadayerf]]]] leaped onto the scene, at which point he activated the RuleOfSexy, [[spoiler:creating a horde of [[ActionGirl Action Girls]]]]
** During guest month, Trope Kira's week revolved around Ecivres being barefoot for no particular reason.
** Yadayerf introduced one {{catgirl}} after another every time he came up in the rotation, to the point that each comic of his features a sidebar so the reader knows who is who.
* AuthorAvatar:
** The original author: JustForFun/TropeTan.
** The A.U.T.H.O.R.: [[NoFourthWall A.U.T.H.O.R.]].
** The Silver Age guest author: [[@/UnknownTroper Report Nwonknu]].
** The Bronze Age author: [[MartyStu Axel]] (it's an InUniverse example, sheesh). Emphasis on [[DemonicPossession avatar]].
** The Catboy: Yadayerf [[spoiler: Actually a catboy-loli-ballerino, but that's not revealed until his fifth appearance, where ClothingDamage leads others to comment on his physique.]]
** The Critic: Wiki Witch Of The Web, who critiques each panel.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: '''''OH YES'''''. Resiurb Suoretsiob is in charge W.I.K.I's soldiers for the Westward Campaign. It shows, as he is capable of taking down the ''entire Trope Crew by himself, one handed, while sitting in a chair and drinking coffee.'' [[spoiler: His death greatly affects the W.I.K.I soldiers in a negative way.]]
* BadassBystander: The unnamed Hawaiian Shirt Guy, who really, ''really'' hates to get his shoes wet.
* BadassFamily: The Nusts. It turns out, Ere comes from a long line of adventurers, time travelers, and wiki magicians.
** The Ehts, as well, if Gabe's brother and sister are any indication.
* BadassLongcoat: Teller wears a particularly awesome black one with blue flame designs.
* BarrierMaiden: [[spoiler:Ms. Naf]] was one for the Prime, Mirror, and Bizarro Universes, then her sons took over. The duties of a BarrierMaiden (or [[SpearCounterpart Barrier Fellow]]) consist of living their life according to the narrative rules that structure the world around her as a well-written story, counteracting the trope entropy and preventing such nasty side-effects as the ContinuitySnarl and Great Crashes.
* {{BFG}}:
** the '''E.D.I.T.''' ('''E'''lectrically-'''D'''ispensed '''I'''nformation '''T'''ransliterator) rifle.
** HandCannon: the E.D.I.T. pistol, which puts the Desert Eagle to shame.
** Gabe's OMFG is named as such because that's the typical reaction someone has when he pulls it out.
** The "Cyber Hand". A nine-foot sniper rifle that shoots eagles made of electricity. Ere used it to snipe at [[{{TheMusketeer}} Cross Reeteksum]].
* BattleOfTheBands: The climax of the Heavy Meta arc is a [[MeleeATrois three-way battle]] between the Crüe, [[PowerMetal Lady of War]], and [[DeathMetal Burn the Witch]]. [[spoiler:Subverted, however, when all three have to team up to prevent the space station from de-orbiting... with ThePowerOfRock!]]
* {{BFG}}: The "Moon Eater Cannon" wielded by [[spoiler: The Wiki Emperor, who uses it to blow up Jupiter.]]
* {{BFS}}:
** The '''M.E.M.E.''' ('''[[MemeticMutation M]]'''[[MemeticMutation utated]] '''E'''asily-'''M'''emorable '''E'''xperience) Blade (this is InUniverse, [[BreakingTheFourthWall you stupid wiki engine!]]). It can change size from dagger to longcat lengths!
** In addition, Brynn's Demon Buster can exponentially increase in size. Even at its smallest, though, it's still pretty big (at six feet long).
** Kurotsume wields two of these, when he isn't using his claws.
** Cross owns one, named "Cervantes" that incorporates a shotgun into its crossguard.
* BigGuyFatalitySyndrome: Subverted in "Worst Case Scenario": [[spoiler:Yug outlives TheHero, TheLancer, ''and'' TheSmartGirl.]] WordOfGod is that the entire arc started as a constructed scenario where Yug would be forced into such a situation.
* BigDamnKiss: Yadayerf's unmasking as [[spoiler:Freyaday]] caused Ty to fall out of the plane they were in without a parachute. [[spoiler:Freyaday]] immediately jumped out of the plane, using his lightning powers to rocket down to the much more aerodynamic Ty. Catching up to her, then pulling out of the dive with her in his arms, earned the catboy a [[EarnYourHappyEnding Big]] [[BigDamnHeroes Damn]] [[RobotGirl Robotic]] [[BigDamnKiss Kiss]].
* BigScrewedUpFamily: [[spoiler: Report's]] notwithstanding, Gabe's family (the members that show up, at least) are quite insane by Meta- standards.
* BizarroUniverse: Report Nwonknu claims to be born there. We don't actually get to see the BizarroUniverse because he joins his half brothers in the MirrorUniverse, claiming they wouldn't survive if they went searching for him in his own world.
* {{Blackmail}}: In ''Song For You'', [[spoiler:it is revealed that Regnis' ex-husband held a grudge at her, and has been extorting money for years by threatening to publish kinky photos that would ruin the image she has been building up. What makes it worse is that he is actually a successful businessman, so he doesn't actually need her money, but does it ''out of pure spite'']].
* BlackmailIsSuchAnUglyWord: When Gabe and Report confront the blackmailer about it, he tries to talk smooth. [[OhCrap It doesn't help his case.]]
* BlondeGuysAreEvil: ''Definitely'' played straight with Cross Reeteksum and Ruof. Averted, however, with Teller and Blaze.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Every 66th strip is dedicating to berating the readers of the webcomic for still reading it.
* BolivianArmyEnding:
** "Worst Case Scenario" seems to be heading this way fast, as the remaining wiki agents (namely, [[spoiler:Yug, Gabe, Neeuq, Eibwen, and a few RedShirts]]) try to hold the Spaces Square of the New Trope City against the demonic hordes.
** Subverted after [[spoiler:Yug orders Neeuq and Eibwen to lead the remaining agents underground (literally), while he provides a distraction]].
* BoobsofSteel: Pyra, the Second Captain of R.E.T.C.O.N has the largest bust size of any R.E.T.C.O.N member, and is also the strongest female.
* CallBack: There's been quite a few in the recent non-A.U.T.H.O.R. arcs: the Yay Agenda arc developed the previously neglected trivia of [[spoiler:Ere's artificial eyes]] having been created by Dr. Dam in the Blinded arc into [[spoiler:Ere's temporary FaceHeelTurn]]; the Family Matters arc tied the storylines of Report Taht from the Mirror Universe arc and Ms. Naf's legacy from the Great Crash arc together; the Heavy Meta arc references both the Original Arc and the External Links, and so on.
* CallingYourAttacks: The "[[InvokedTrope Invocation]]" aspect of Wiki Magic and Wei Ki involves saying the name of the trope out loud. Later justified by Tsidalb:
--->'''Tsidalb''': "Saying the name out loud helps to clarify to the gods which trope you mean to invoke...or something like that, I guess."
** In order for a "Retcon" trope to take place, the user must announce it's Anti-trope name.
* CantHoldHisLiquor: Tsidalb. Just Tsidalb. The premise of the first movie-arc was an experiment by him to see how drunk he could be while creating a series of four-panel strips page-by-page, taking another sip per panel and going through one can of beer per page. As a result, the first panel was his regular art style, the second was similar (but with slightly sprawling lines), and the third panel was just unreadable text. [[SerialEscalation Reading the fourth panel played the movie.]]
---->'''Tsidalb''' '', in the next day's news post'': I am an excellent comic-maker while sober. I am a movie-making ''god'' while drunk.
* CaptainErsatz:
** [[MyHeroZero Espoir Zero]], who kidnaps anyone who dares to say his real name out loud, is a clear reference to [[JustForFun/CandleJack you-know-who]].
** But for some reason Espoir Zero didn't kidn
* CasualDangerDialogue: Kerrie and Kuro do this in their very first appearance.
---> '''Kerrie''': Great. Facing off against an army of mooks in an unfinished universe we have no right to be in.
---> '''Kuro''': Relax, these aren't so tough. *smashes mook through wall*
---> '''Kerrie''': This is supposed to be vacation, though! I don't want to have to beat up bad guys when I could be vacationing in Moria! *smacks mook with flat of katana*
---> '''Kuro''': Why would you vacation in Moria? It's cold and dark. Not to mention full of Balrogs.
---> '''Kerrie''': Balrogs keep it warm and well-lit, I'll have you know.
* {{Catgirl}}: [[GratuitousLatin Ad ridiculum]]
* TheCavalry:
** The ex-Dipertni mob hitmen led by TheConsigliere himself come to Retrope's rescue during the battle for New Trope City in "Worst Case Scenario". And it's ''epic''.
** Minutes later, Oyabun shows up with his Boryokudan {{Yakuza}} to join the fray. With their mecha.
** ...and [[spoiler:[[RedshirtArmy subverted]] just a few strips later, when [[EverybodysDeadDave almost everyone of them gets slaughtered]] while trying to get Retrope to safety. Including the mecha guys who are devoured alive by the [[EldritchAbomination Winged Kraken Thing]]]].
* ChaseScene: Of particular note is ''the'' chase scene in ''The Yay Agenda'' arc, where Report and Ere's convertible is pursued by the Knight's BlackHelicopter.
* CerebusSyndrome:
** After [[spoiler:Ere is blinded and becomes a WaifProphet]] in strip #300.
** She gets better, in a way: in strip #342, [[spoiler:Dr. Dam makes a pair of [[HollywoodCyborg cybernetic prosthetics]] for her. Though, seeing how it is ''that'' Dr. Dam we are talking about, Ere is reasonably reluctant to accept his offer]].
* ColonyDrop: Spirit Tomec can bring down meteors with [[spoiler: her Retcon trope]] "Torn Skies."
* CombatTentacles: The flying kraken thing from the "Worst Case Scenario", whatever it may be.
* ConspiracyThriller: The Yay Agenda arc, complete with fittingly FilmNoir ArtShift.
* ContinuityReboot[=/=]ResetButton: Beyond The Impossible was intended like this. However, it actually gave birth to two Silver Age continuities, which were merged together by the Bronze Age. Therefore, Retrope is alive and canon, while Ere has her GreenEyes back.
* ContinuityCreep:
** As the strips accumulate, the narration tends to look back more often.
** Yadayerf's strips [[AvertedTrope deny]] this, almost as if he's trying to reverse the trend.
* ContinuityPorn: Alot of this pops up in "Beyond The Impossible" arc.
* ContinuitySnarl: Nobody not even the writter is really sure what is and is not canon.
** A chaos the {{catgirl}}s are taking advantage of [[spoiler:by abusing time travel to give themselves extra powers]]
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: Dab Gib's tickling machine, which he put Ere into to find the location of Unobtanium-9000.
* CooldownHug:
** Report delivers one to Ere [[spoiler:after she kills Retrope while under the Knights' MindControl. It does the trick of snapping her out of her delusions but there's still that small matter of the DeathTrap(s)...]]
** Ere later returns the favor to [[spoiler:snap Report out of "Viel-mode"]], much to the shippers' rejoice/outrage.
* CosmicRetcon:
** [[spoiler:Used to cure Ere and give her real eyes although they are still the same color as the cybernetic eyes.]]
** It even spawned a meme: "She's got [[WhatBeautifulEyes pretty eyes]]."
* CradlingYourKill: This is how Neeuq finds Ere after [[spoiler:she kills Report]].
* CreatorBreakdown: When the Original Author came down with the flu, suddenly every character in the strip would only eat soup and drink tea. Also the Informational Breakdown arc was meant to be a pardory of this trope.
* CurseCutShort: Two for the price of one:
-->'''Gabe:''' And ''this'' one goes up your --
-->(Is teleported away from plane but still 15,000 ft from ground)
-->'''Gabe:''' FFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUU--
* CutAndPasteComic: One villain, Mr. Detsap, is just the same drawing over and over again. He eventually creates an army of clones, too.
* DaEditor: Retrope's boss Roti. Don't ask about his last name.
* DarkerAndEdgier: Report has to look the part to sneak into an O.T.H.E.R. base.
* Dark-SkinnedBlonde: Blaze Dog-Nus, who's hair is "platinum blonde."
* TheDeadHaveNames: Report has the dubious honor of making a speech at the farewell ceremony to all the W.I.K.I. agents who died in "Worst Case Scenario". Instead, he just opts for reading out a list of names of every agent who died there. It takes four and a half strips to finish.
* DealWithTheDevil: It is revealed that [[spoiler:Report]] has made an agreement with [[spoiler:Viel]] in "Worst Case Scenario" in order to feel off the latter's energies and push himself beyond his physical limits in an attempt to rebuild W.I.K.I.. [[spoiler:Viel]]'s stake in this remains to be seen.
* DefrostingIceQueen: When Gabe sneaks into Regnis' apartment at dead of night to give her [[spoiler:the incriminating photos she has been living in fear of for years]], she first stutters for words, finally managing a weak "Why?" When Gabe replies "[[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming Because I love you]]", an ''entire page'' is used to show her face going from shocked, to grateful, to uncertain, to TearsOfJoy.
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: W.I.K.I. has a literal DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment, '''R.E.P.E.A.T.E.R.''', the '''R'''epeating '''E'''stablishment '''P'''romising '''E'''choes '''A'''nd '''T'''autalogies '''E'''specially '''R'''epeating.
* DespairEventHorizon: Gabe crosses it in "Worst Case Scenario" after [[spoiler:losing his powers, losing his true love, losing all his friends, and finally ''witnessing his own brother side with the man who caused all his losses in the first place'']].
* DuelBoss: Cross personally shuts off all access to him and Report during the White Raid, forcing Report to battle him all alone.
* DidTheyOrDidntThey: When Report asks Gabe whether he and Regnis "got it on" the next morning, Gabe just smiles and doesn't answer. Interpret that as you wish.
* DieForOurShip: InUniverse example: The pirates that attacked Report and Ere in ''Cupid's Right Hand'' were rabid Report/Gabe SlashFans.
* DishingOutDirt: Axel's elemental power, acting as a direct foil to Gabe's Lightning.
* DistractedByTheSexy: Explained as the reason why Gabe lost to Report in ''T3h L33t W4rz'':
----> '''Report''': Dude, what the hell happened to you?
----> '''Gabe''': The lady in Section P, Row 14, Seat 18, Cup E was [[spoiler:breastfeeding]]! I ''had'' to see!
** During their sparring match on the beach, Yug and Report stop to watch Ere and Retrope sunbathe in their new bikinis.
---> '''Report''': Truce? [''looks to Yug'']
---> '''Yug''': [''not turning his head from the girls''] Truce.
* DoNotGoGentle: After being left in charge of the New Trope City defense in the face of a demonic invasion, Yug gives ''awesome'' speech to the painfully few defenders under his command. His speech is so awesome, even Gabe crawls out of his hidey hole to help them.
* DrowningMySorrows:
** After [[spoiler:receiving another extortion letter from her ex-husband]], Regnis cancels the next show and attempts to drink herself to unconsciousness.
** Interestingly, about the same time (we know it, because the news on TV in Retrope's apartment say that Regnis canceled her show), Ere finds Retrope drunk in her apartment and decides to return the favor and cheer her up. By taking her to her ancestral home.
* EldritchAbomination: Every single member of the Numero Warlords [[spoiler: beside's En0 and their master OREZ]] has one spell in their arsenal that is a last resort. It transforms them into monstrous beasts.
* ElementalPowers:
** AnIcePerson: Viel-Report during the "Rose of the Starry Night" arc.
** CastingaShadow: Lili is capable of animating people's shadows.
** PlayingwithFire: Ere gains access to guns that shoot fireballs during the "Westward Campaign".
** ThePoweroftheSun: Sun-Dog's entire shtick.
*** ILoveNuclearPower: A secondary effect of Sun-Dog's powers.
** PoweroftheVoid: [[spoiler: En0's power, once he wakes up]]
* TheEndOrIsIt: The "Worst Case Scenario" arc ends with [[spoiler:Yug writing a report about the incident to his W.I.K.I. superiors, concluding that whoever subjected them to the fear toxin is still at large. He then says that whatever the five of them may have experienced while under its influence doesn't have any base in reality. At that moment, Neeuq and Eibwen (whom he reported as figments of his imagination) walk into his office and report that they have just been assigned as his aides.]]
* EnemyMine: Well, sorta in ''Heavy Meta'' arc: Just as the Tröper Crüe is about to perform "[[EpicRocking The Betrayer]]", an asteroid hits the station and it starts losing altitude, so Amadeus asks the three bands that are still on-stage ([[SarcasmMode coincidentally]], the Crüe, Burn The Witch, and Lady of War) to [[RivalsTeamUp team up for the final performance]] in hopes of generating enough power for the station to maintain orbit. Much awesomeness ensues.
* EtTuBrute: [[spoiler:Report suffers a HeroicBSOD after discovering that Ere joined the Knights. The little fact that the discovery came when Ere killed Retrope probably contributed.]]
* EvilPlan: The plan of the Knights Who Say Yay boils down to [[spoiler:infecting as many NormalPeople as they could with the "Yay mindvirus", then making them all shout "Yay!" on [[{{Mayincatec}} December 21, 2012]] (under the pretence of a worldwide "unity for peace" action), thus creating an atmospheric resonance strong enough to [[EarthShatteringKaboom shatter the Earth's crust]], bringing about the end of the world as we know it]]. ItMakesSenseInContext, really.
* FaceHeelTurn:
** Trope-tan did this in the Informational Breakdown arc, which [[CharacterDerailment is really, really not in character.]]
** [[spoiler:Report]] also seemed to do this during the [[spoiler:''Report'']] arc. But he was NotHimself.
* FamilyDrama: In the ''Family Matters'' arc, Report travels back to the Mirror Universe to persuade his LawfulEvil half-brother [[spoiler:Report Taht]] to help him save their youngest brother, [[spoiler:Report Nwonknu]]. Needless to say, [[spoiler:Report Taht]] is less than cooperative.
* Fanservice: The Steel Age of comics is known for throwing absurd amounts of this into the comics. However, it is relatively gender-equal, as many men get to show off as well as women.
* FantasticTimeManagement: In the "Heavy Meta" arc, the Tröper Crüe travels back in time (six times) to rehearse their songs for a concert that takes place in less than a week.
* FieldofBlades: Teller, from the "Dark side of the Moon" arc, uses this as [[spoiler: his retcon-trope ability.]] It forms swords of varying origins to fight for him.
* FiveManBand:
** From the original arc:
*** TheHero: Report.
*** TheLancer: Ere.
*** TheBigGuy: Yug.
*** TheSmartGuy: Betrand Ayers.
*** TheChick: Ecivres.
** Also from the ''Heavy Meta'' arc, the Tröper Crüe is actually a two-man-two-girl band but otherwise fits quite well:
*** [[TheHero Lead Singer]]: Subversively, not Report (who is discovered to have no singing talents whatsoever) but rather Ere, after she gets over her aversion to all things hard and heavy. She also wields the rhythm guitar.
*** [[TheLancer Lead Guitar]]: Report settles in for this position pretty fast, thanks to his love of electric guitars in general. The fact that his love is unrequited makes mastering the instrument difficult, though...
*** [[TheSmartGuy Bass Guitar]]: Retrope takes this role immediately, because she is the only one (except Yug) who has actually played her instrument before.
*** [[TheBigGuy Drummer]]: Yug's dream was to be the lead singer/guitarist but his talent is the perfect sense of rhythm. He still writes the lyrics and most of the music for the Crüe, though.
*** [[TheChick The Useless Girl]]: Ere, before her friends convince her to do her best for their success. She still remains the FaceOfTheBand, however.
*** [[SixthRanger The "Roadie"]]: Gabe, at least in '''''The Tröper Crüe Saves Santa'''''; being the resident "tech guy", he tasks himself with maintaining the Crüe's instruments as well as handling stage setup, lighting, and all other stuff that road crews do.
* FoeTossingCharge:
** Subverted: [[spoiler:Yug barely manages to cross half of the demon-infested Spaces Squared before being overwhelmed.]]
** DoubleSubversion! After a ThemeMusicPowerUp, Yug finishes his charge [[spoiler:only to be confronted by his long-lost evil brother]].
* FourStarBadass: Both Report and Gabe after becoming generals in the Rajuland Army [[spoiler: which was secretly an army created by the villains to capture them.]]
* FunWithAcronyms: Every suborganization at W.I.K.I. is like this, with the exception of '''O.N.I.N.A.A.''' ('''O'''ur '''N'''ame '''I'''s '''N'''ot '''A'''n '''A'''cronym).
* FunctionalMagic:
** Both Trope-tan and Wikipe-tan are proficient with "WikiMagic", which is basically shaping the universe in accordance to basic narrative rules ("tropes"). The word "wiki" is actually a mistranslation from Adamic "wei ki", "story flow" or "story power". [[spoiler:Report Siht and Report Taht also learn it from Report Nwonknu]], because they need it for fulfill their duties as Entropy Shields.
** In addition, there is a non-magic form of Wiki Magic, simply referred to as "Wei Ki", used by physical fighters such as [[LightningBruiser Axel]].
* FusionDance: Erort, the fusion of Ere and Report, is of The Composite type.
* GenderBender:
** There was one memorable arc where every member of the main cast switched genders. At the end, when things were returning back to normal, it was strongly implied that Ere, while appearing female again, didn't change all the way back. This hasn't yet been followed up on, but she has since adamantly refused to wear some of her favorite Stripperiffic outfits, and memorably would not show off her bikini bottoms in a BeachEpisode.
** Alluded to in a NoodleIncident-esque manner between Kerrie and Kurotsume.
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: Neeuq delivers percussive maintenance to Eibwen after [[spoiler:the loss of the New Trope City]] in "Worst Case Scenario".
* GilliganCut:
--> '''Report:''' ''[on hands and knees]'' Please, please, ''please!'' Database, if you ''are'' kind, if you ''are'' merciful, if you ''don't'' hate me, then ''please'' don't make me [[NoodleImplements dress up in a chicken suit and do the tango!]]''
--> ''[next panel]'' '''Report:''' ''[In a chicken suit, doing the tango]'' The Database hates me.
* Guns Akimbo: Ere pulls out twin [[{{Hand Cannon}} pistols]] named "Dramatica" in order to combat Hsahs-Koom. [[spoiler: they make the man implode with a few shots]]
* GuysSmashGirlsShoot: Among the core cast, pretty much every male prefers melee combat, while women are unanimously [[{{Gunslinger}} gunslingers]]. The only exceptions to this are Gabe (who in fact built most of the guns the others use) and Evi (who is arguably much better at melee than shooting, given that she can't properly aim while moving.)
** Elizabeth inverts this as well, being a wielder of the Axe-Chucks.
* GladToBeAliveSex: [[spoiler:Report, Ere, and Retrope have a threesome]] in the end of the "Worst Case Scenario". As Ayers puts it: "It's good to be young".
* AGodAmI: The Knights' leadership ([[spoiler:represented mainly by Dr. Dam]]) was told that [[spoiler:by sacrificing the entirety of humanity with their own hands]], the chosen among them would ascend to divinity. They believed that load of bollocks, because [[spoiler:it was literally the WordOfGod, as the final strips of the arc revealed. God lied, though]].
** Cross declares his godhood by crashing in on the [[spoiler:W.I.K.I captain promotion exam]] and dropping exploding swords on the island.
* GoodCopBadCop: Report and Gabe do this to a perp in the ''Scapegoat'' arc, and Gabe is the good cop. They do it again in ''Song For You'' on Regnis' blackmailer. Only this time, Gabe is the ''worse'' cop.
* GoOutWithASmile: Played during [[spoiler:Yug's death]]. He is so happy to meet his brother again, ''he doesn't stop smiling even after his head is chopped off and keeps rolling down the street.''
* {{Gorn}}: You know that somewhere, someone was turned on by Ere D. Uuk's, uh, appearance in "Worst Case Scenario".
* GriefSong: Yug wrote one for his brother Dab, titled "The Betrayer". However, over the years he wrote and re-wrote it, it became more of an EpicRocking, interspersing the usual mournful parts with furious solos and riffs.
* HalfHumanHybrid:
** The Ehts, as revealed by Axel, are half-human and half-dragon, which is what gives them their superhuman abilities. The flip-side is that they will die from overusing their powers, as Gabe almost did.
** The recently introduced CanonForeigner Kurotsume is one of these by virtue of a fanfic backstory.
* HarbingerOfImpendingDoom: Ere D. Uuk in "Worst Case Scenario", who arrives at the new W.I.K.I. HQ [[spoiler:horribly mutilated and utters a single breathless line "They... are... coming..." before expiring]].
* HarmlessElectrocution
* HeroicBSOD: Ere has one after [[spoiler:learning about her parent's death, apparently at Report's hands]].
* HeroicRROD: Gabe suffers it in the "Worst Case Scenario" after [[spoiler:deliberately going past his limits to save Regnis from radiation poisoning]]. [[SenselessSacrifice He fails.]]
* HijackedByGanon: The villain of the "Worst Case Scenario" is finally revealed as [[spoiler:Dab Gib himself, who came BackFromTheDead to take revenge upon W.I.K.I. and everyone who's been involved in his downfall]].
* HollywoodAtlas:
** [[{{Eagleland}} The Eagle States]] - The United States
** [[BigApplesauce New Trope City, New Trope]] - New York City, New York
** [[{{Animeland}} Giga-Nippon]] - Japan
** [[GloriousMotherRussia The Motherland]] and the [[{{Kaiserreich}} Fatherland]] - Russia and Germany, respectively
** [[TheCapitalOfBrazilIsBuenosAires Nova Sambango]] - ''Every'' Latin American country you have ever heard of, but mostly Mexico. (It's mentioned in "Worst Case Scenario" that it borders [[{{Eagleland}} the Eagle States]].)
* HowWeGotHere: The Yay Agenda arc begins with Report entering the Knights' underground temple [[spoiler:where Retrope is held for interrogation and torture]], before moving four days back in time to his first meeting with Retrope.
* IconicOutfit:
** Report's "SIHT HAPPENS" t-shirt.
** Ecivres' black vinyl bikini.
** Cross's pirate [[BadassLongcoat jacket]].
** And off course, Sun-Dog's giant fur shoulder-boa.
* ItAlwaysRainsAtFunerals: As shown in a flashback, it rained at [[spoiler:Regnis']]. [[ItsAlwaysSunnyAtFunerals Inverted]], though, at the symbolic ceremony for the W.I.K.I. agents who died in the explosion (no bodies could be recovered for most of them).
** Inverted again for Report's [[spoiler:fake]] funeral.
* IdiotBall: The famous use of an actual ball, which the villains kept trying to give to Report during an early arc (#42-#101) Hasn't been seen in a while, but Gib has constant plans to stick it back to them. Usually, HilarityEnsues when he it the one who catches it accidentally. Hasn't been seen post #300.
* UnexplainedRecovery: Happens quite a bit actually. It was lampshaded during this conversation when it turns out [[spoiler:Retrope is alive.]]
---->[[spoiler:Ere:Retrope your alive!]]
---->[[spoiler:Retrope:Yep.]]
---->[[spoiler:Ere:But...but I killed you?]]
---->[[spoiler:Retrope:I got better.]]
---->[[spoiler:Ere:But how?]]
---->[[spoiler:Retrope:I find it's best to not to worry about these thing to much.]]
* IKnowYouAreInThereSomewhereFight: This is what Ere's fight against [[spoiler:Report in "Worst Case Scenario" was, from her POV. It didn't help that he was drawing heavily on Viel's ''just to keep up with her''.]]
* InformationWantsToBeFree: The Yabetarip Collective in "Blinded."
* InstantExpert:
** Deconstructed in the Heavy Meta arc, when Report realizes that it is physically impossible to form a band out of four people, two of whom never had any musical experience and one only has a vague idea of it, no matter how central their characters are.
** However, in the case of him suddenly switching from guns to swords, it's never really brought up. [[spoiler:Ersoh did it.]]
* ItHasBeenAnHonor: Yug says that to the few remaining W.I.K.I. agents [[spoiler:after ordering them to retreat while he charges at the demons in the attempt to reach their leader (who he doesn't yet know is his brother)]].
* ItRunsOnNonsensoleum:
** All of T.V.T.R.O.P.E.S. robots run on "fictionite." Occasionally, they turn evil, because "fictionite is very, very unstable [[NoodleIncident and should never be made into frisbees]]."
** [[GadgeteerGenius Gabe]] prefers to power his robots and contraptions with an artificially-created type of fictionite classified '''S.C.I.''' ('''S'''table but '''C'''onstrictive '''I'''sotope), called "sci-fi" for short. It's a lot more stable than fictionite (so no turning evil), but in return throws off radiation that has a high chance of turning [[AIIsACrapshoot AIs into crapshoots]]. [[{{Anvilicious}} It should still never be made into frisbees]].
* ItsPersonal: It wasn't until the Hyper Eddie put Ere D. Nay into coma while targeting Report Taht that the latter joined forces with Report Siht.
** Now a new version: Shale Niatpac wants to kill Ere, who apparently killed her brother 3 years ago.
* ItIsPronouncedTroPAY:
** 'It's pronounced [[EverythingSoundsSexierInFrench Eh-seev-ray]], not [[MsFanservice Ecky-vres]]
** Eck-Rehg-neel-snoog, not Eck-uh-Rehj-nihl-snug
** Air-soh, not Ur-soh
** Vee-El, not Veel
** Oh-WET, not OAT
* JackBauerInterrogationTechnique: Ere doesn't take threats to her friends very well, and will get very physical when she needs answers fast.
* JustFriends:
** WordOfGod is that Report and Retrope have never seen each other as more than FireForgedFriends (their initial flirting in the Shard aside). Tell that to the shippers, though...
** Despite a considerate fan support, Wikepe-tan and Trope-tan are also said to be this. Doesn't stop the story form torturing fans with ShipTease, though.
* KarmicDeath: Viel-Report kills XD using the same move the latter had used on the audience several pages before.
** Loupe Garou is eaten alive by his own spirit hounds, after commanding them to do just that to Retrope.
* KatanasAreJustBetter: Just ask Kerrie! Or, better idea, don't.
** Out of all the swords he could summon, Teller chose a katana to duel Report. [[spoiler:It didn't end well for Report]]
* KentBrockmanNews: An interview with Dab Gib had the reporter show amazing amounts of hostility. It later turns out to be [[spoiler:Mary Sue, Dab's ex-girlfriend.]]
* KneelBeforeZod: In "Worst Case Scenario", Gabe is forced to kneel before Dab Gib... and [[DefiantToTheEnd proceeds to badmouth him.]]
* KudzuPlot: Everyone who has tried to make a coherent summary of the overall plot wound up suffering from [[YourHeadASplode Spontaneous Cranial Detonation Syndrome]].
* LastStand: The battle for the New Trope City in "Worst Case Scenario" quickly turns into this [[spoiler:in absense of Report and Ere. And Axel. And Brynn. And the aspect of Gabe that makes Gabe Gabe]].
* LargeHam: Sir Desselb, whose bubbles can barely fit his extra large, extra ''hammy'' speech. [[BerserkButton He "prefers" it if you call him Sir.]]
--> '''Sir Desselb:''' '''''HOW DARE YOU! Try that AGAIN and I'll kick your ASS from here to TAIWAN! [[{{Narm}} AND! BACK! AGAIN!]]'''''
** EZ, who expects people to '''''BOW DOWN TO UTTER EPICNESS!!!'''''
* LateArrivalSpoiler: Ere likes Report, Gabe is a MartyStu, Report didn't die in ''Chrono Troper Cross'', Ecivres and Bertrand are (likely) Report's parents, Dab is evil, 75% of the regular cast is awesome, and the fact that A.U.T.H.O.R. cares more about the fans' reactions than paying income tax and respecting zoning laws isn't saying much.
* LeetSpeak: How XD speaks. Fitting, considering his position as sponsor of a tournament hosted in the Dimension-[[{{Leet}} 1337]].
* LegionOfDoom: T.V.T.R.O.P.E.S. evil counterpart is called '''O.T.H.E.R.''', the '''O'''rganization '''T'''hat '''H'''as '''E'''vil '''R'''ules.
* TheLegionsOfHell:
** Apparently, they launch an all-out assault on Earth and it's up to W.I.K.I. to put up a defense.
** As Eibwen puts it: "[[VideoGame/MassEffect3 Earth is burning.]]"
* LinkedListClueMethodology: The first 40 or so strips of The Yay Agenda arc are basically about Report following in Retrope's footsteps via brief messages she left behind.
* LogicBomb: The L.O.G.I.C bomb ('''L'''ow '''O'''ridinance '''G'''rievous '''I'''ntellect '''C'''harge) was used against the mainframe of a [[AIIsACrapshoot Hyperactive security system.]] R.E.P.E.A.T.E.R has filed many petitions against [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment its name.]]
* LongDistanceRelationship: Seems to be the status of [[spoiler:Gabe and Regnis]] after the ''Song For You'' arc.
* LovableTraitor: Elom.
* LoveRedeems: Played with in the ''Family Matters'' arc. While both Report Taht and Ere D. Nay are definitely evil and sadistic (their normal communication best resembles TheMasochismTango), both show their more caring sides when the other is in danger. To elaborate, [[spoiler:Nay [[TakingTheBullet takes the magic bullet]] for Taht, after which he opens up to idea of teamwork with Siht, even if only to exact revenge upon the Guardian]].
* MadLibThrillerTitle: "The Great Crash" (though it was more of RealLifeWritesThePlot) and "The Yay Agenda" (fully intentional).
* TheMafia:
** Don Dipertni approaches Report to find his missing daughter Retrope. [[spoiler:After Retrope is killed, he offers his unconditional support to Report against the Knights. It ends [[KillEmAll badly for him and his family]].]]
** Also, Don Marcone's mob from ''Troublesome Heirloom''.
* TheManBehindTheMan: TheOmniscientCouncilOfVagueness that is ''really'' behind the Knights Who Say Yay is revealed to be [[spoiler:a group of members from an obscure anime forum who were displeased with the direction ''TVTropesTheWebcomic'' took under A.U.T.H.O.R. and [[NoFourthWall decided to give it what they consider to be "a proper plot"]].]] But then again, the final strips of The Yay Agenda arc are a complete MindScrew, which many fans still [[FanonDisContinuity refuse to accept as remotely canon]].
* MassiveMultiplayerEnsembleNumber: The Crüe has to [[RivalsTeamUp team up with its two rival bands]] in the Battle of the Bands in ''Heavy Meta'' arc. Incidentally, all three have learned "The Betrayer" (Selene "got it from Ere the other night", while Burn The Witch, being jerkasses, simply stole it from the Crüe's van), so that's what they play. Later, Yug comments that [[TearJerker he has never dreamed that this song will be performed on that scale]].
* MaximumFunChamber: If the team fail a mission in particularly spectacular fashion, Report or occasionally one of the others may worry that they'll be put in [[Memes/TVTropes "the Bunker"]].
* MegatonPunch: Delivered by Eeno to Gabe at the end of "Left 4 Gabe" to wake him from his coma. Apparently it was so powerful that uploading the page caused Tsadlib's computer monitor to split in half, forcing him to buy a new one.
* MercyKill: [[spoiler:This is what Ere tries to do to Report in "Worst Case Scenario", believing him to be irreversibly corrupted by Viel. Or maybe she just wants to [[YouKilledMyFather avenge her parents]].]]
* MetalHead: ''Everyone'' in the "Heavy Meta" arc.
* MirrorUniverse: The focus of the eponymous arc and revisited in [[spoiler:the ''Family Matters'' arc]].
* MobWar: Narrowly averted in the ''Troublesome Heirloom'' arc, when it turns out [[spoiler:that the remains of Don Dipertni's mob make their LastStand against the invading Marcone family who aim to take over the "unmanaged" city.]]
* MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate: Doctor Dam. Also, Professor Suigen has a Morally Ambiguous [=PhD=].
* MoreThanMindControl: [[spoiler:Ere's prosthetic eyes constructed by Dr. Dam are perfectly harmless in every reasonably verifiable way. However, there is a secret module installed in them that ''slightly'' adjusts what she sees in a way that is currently favorable to Dr. Dam. This culminates in The Yay Agenda arc, when she is manipulated into a HeelFaceTurn.]] Also, the "Yay" brain trojan that hides under the pretense of a simple forced meme.
* MusicalEpisode:
** Halfway through the Beyond The Impossible arc we were treated one of these doubled as a BigLippedAlligatorMoment and filled to the brim with CrowningMusicOfAwesome, lots of ShipTease, and RuleOfCool.
** And of course, a lot of things [[NoodleIncident happened offscreen.]]
* MyFutureSelfAndMe: In a fit of ingenuity, Report comes up with an emergency plan to give himself and the rest of the Tröper Crüe extra practice time by traveling a week back in time. He goes to great lengths to [[NeverTheSelvesShallMeet avoid encountering the past version of himself]], but imagine their embarrassment when [[YouSuck seven more future versions of themselves]] show up in the studio they've just rented! HilarityEnsues, by the way.
** Yug encounters a future version of himself in the "Rose of the Starry Night" arc, and is surprised to find [[spoiler:he acts just like Dab]] even wearing his old coat.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone:
** [[spoiler:After Ere kills Retrope, it is revealed that Dr. Dam was leading the Knights all along and he ''also'' manipulated Ere into joining them. Cue HeroicBSOD, which is just ''perfectly timed'', as Report is currently having his own and they sit right in the center of four (!) {{Death Trap}}s nested inside each other like Matryoshka dolls.]]
** Doubles as a {{Tearjerker}} and leads to a [[CrowningMomentofAwesome CMOA]] for Report.
** Report himself has this reaction in "Worst Case Scenario", when he [[spoiler:uses Viel's powers to slaughter Ere's masked captors, only to realize that they are actually members of her squad, ordered to attack him as a SecretTestOfCharacter of sorts]].
** Ere gets another one of these when she [[spoiler: shoots through, and kills, Yug]] in order to defeat Cross. [[spoiler:Cross survives, and it turned out killing Yug was apart of Owt's plan to resurrect En0.]]
* NarniaTime: It is implied that the BizarroUniverse has different time flow than the Prime and Mirror universe (which are almost synchronous), since Report Nwonknu is both the youngest and the oldest brother of the two other Reports: he was chronologically the last child to be born to [[spoiler:Ecivres]], but he is physically older and more experienced than his brothers.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Report delivers one to XD in ''T3h L33t W4rz'' as Viel-Report, for being such a damn sadistic bastard.
** ''Retrope of all people'' has this happen to her, by ''Report'' when [[spoiler: she refuses to assist in helping resurrect Yug]]
* NoirEpisode: ''The Yay Agenda'' arc was this, combined with ConspiracyThriller.
* NoNameGiven:
** The original author is always referred to as "the original author" in discussions, no real name or nickname given. Out of respect for him, the guest authors are also never referred to by their names: instead constructs like "the guest author who wrote the ''[insert title here]'' arc/strip" are used. Even the A.U.T.H.O.R. follows the convention to a degree, refusing to spell out what his acronym pen name stands for.
** Sometimes is get's really confusing when it's unclear if one is talking about A.U.T.H.O.R. the character or A.U.T.H.O.R. the writer.
* NotADate: When Ere starts sulking over Report leaving without a word in ''Troublesome Heirloom'', Retrope drags her out into the city to "have a cup of tea and cheer up". Ere initially gets a wrong idea and is confused and very cute.
* NotStayingForBreakfast: In the end of ''Song For You'', Regnis leaves just before dawn, while Gabe is still asleep. [[spoiler:It is later revealed that she needed time to sort out her own feelings. And write a [[TitleDrop song for Gabe]].]]
* NotWhatItLooksLike: When Ere helps Retrope get "[[SandInMyEyes a speck of dust]]" out of her eye, it looks like they are making out from afar. And then her mom walks in on them.
* NoodleIncident:
** Surprised this hasn't been mentioned yet. Sometimes the upper levels at T.V.T.R.O.P.E.S will make references to missions that we haven't seen. Guest authors sometimes tried to explain them, but results were [[DarthWiki/SoBadItsHorrible mixed]].
** Also, don't ''ever'' ask Ere how exactly [[LipstickLesbian Selene]] got the lyrics and tabs for "The Betrayer" out of her "the other night".
** Apparently, Gabe was suspended from Wikawaii for an unprecedented amount of time...
* {{Nosebleed}}: Retrope passes out from blood loss after meeting Erort for the first time.
** When Ecivres came out in a [[{{BarelyThereSwimwear}}bikini]] during the Trope Team's stay on the beach, everyone in the generally vicinity (Report, Ere, Yug, Betrand, Retrope, Gabe and Axel) all got massive nosebleeds.
* NukeEm: Let's just say that the "Worst Case Scenario" opens with a BANG.
** Cross makes his debut with one of these as well.
* AnOfferYouCantRefuse: As much as Report would like to turn down W.I.K.I.'s (quite well-paid) offer in the Heavy Meta arc on accounts of not knowing any music at all, he really can't. The nameless W.I.K.I. official hints that Yug has been suffering from depression, having [[spoiler:never really gotten over what happened to his brother Dab]] in the Original Arc, so his band was actually part of W.I.K.I.'s rehab program for him. And Report ''was'' the one who contributed considerably to the source of Yug's depression, no matter how little he could do about it.
* OmniscientCouncilofVagueness: Despite being mentioned several times throughout the story, the Numero Warlords have not actually done much to impact the story (besides Owt). Once the "E.N.D" arc kicks off, they take a more central stage.
* OurGeniesAreDifferent: Dab finds a ruby encrusted ring that commands Nij'd the Fire Genie, who must obey the one wearing the ring. However, Genies do not have the ability to automatically grant any wish, but rather have a long list of elemental powers that they use to try to grant the wish manually. Report destroys the ring to free Nij'd from this plane, but it's implied that Nij'd has a brother, two sisters and a father, and that there are four other rings.
* OurLawyersAdvisedThisTrope: Laroma, Attorney-at-Law, usually comes in to inform characters about any legal mattersfor O.T.H.E.R.
* ParentsWalkInAtTheWorstTime: Lampshaded in ''Troublesome Heirloom''. Ere and Retrope [[NotWhatItLooksLike weren't really making out]], but it looked that way, prompting Mrs. Nust to comment that she "used to fool around in her day, too", leaving Ere very flustered.
* PastelChalkedFreezeFrame: Used in the "Worst Case Scenario", each time in conjunction [[spoiler:with a character's death, namely, Report, Ere, Retrope, Yug, and Gabe's]].
* PersonalitySwap: Wikipe-tan and Trope-tan switched personalities at one point, [[HilarityEnsues Hilarity Ensued]].
* PersonofMassDestruction: '''''BLAZE "SUN-DOG" DOG-NUS'''''. He is literally so powerful, that his arrival to the Westward Campaign caused ''the entire W.I.K.I army'' to flee. He casually destroys ''stars!''
* PietaPlagiarism:
** After [[spoiler:Yug almost dies by his brother's hands]].
** Also, [[spoiler:Report carrying Retrope's body across the Dipertni mansion]].
** And again [[spoiler:for Regnis by Gabe]] who combines it with a SkywardScream.
* {{Pirate}}: Cross and his "Hero Brigade Pirates". However, they're pirates in name only, and don't actually do much pirating.
* PlayingWithATrope: Literally, and one of the most important aspects of Wiki Magic and Wei Ki. Depending on how a trope is Invoked, it can do different things:
** The most fabled technique in a Wiki Magician's arsenal is called "[[LampshadeHanging lampshading]]."It allows them to ''[[RealityWarping hijack reality]]'' while a trope is in effect. Trope-tan has been established as the undefeated champion of this ability.
** [[SubvertedTrope Subverting]] a Trope creates a direct defense against it.
** [[InvertedTrope Inverting]] a Trope reverses the intended effects
** [[AvertedTrope Averting]] a Trope is essentially ignoring the trope and its effects altogether
** [[ExaggeratedTrope Exaggerating]] a Trope is essentially that trope achieving [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Bankai]]
** You've also got [[ZigZaggedTrope Zig-Zagging]] (altering a trope's base form to create different effects), [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructing]] (Breaking a trope down to original, lesser, or different components), and [[ReconstructedTrope Reconstructing]] (making tropes out of components).
** Now you have [[{{Retcon}} Retconning]] a trope, which, despite it's name, actually [[spoiler: creates an artificial trope that is ''stronger'' than a regular trope.]]
* PoliceAreUseless: It seems that any investigation in the New Trope City and surroundings (including that of the ''nuclear bombing of the frigging W.I.K.I. HQ'') falls on the shoulders of either {{Private Detective}}s, {{Intrepid Reporter}}s, or the local PrivateMilitaryContractor's [[LoveableRogue head]] [[CorporateSamurai or one of his]] [[BloodKnight two]] [[KnightErrant brothers]]. Often all at once.
* PoorCommunicationKills:
** Is that what you call when an ANC system is activated just as [[spoiler:Report is about to explain to Ere (who tries to kill him) that he is ''not'', in fact, being controlled by Viel]]?
** She shouldn't have sicked those commandos on him, too.
** Had The Trope Team decided to talk, Yug probably [[spoiler: wouldn't have died, ''again'']]
* {{Postmodernism}}: '''''Where the hell do we start?!'''''
* PowerFist: Ere obtains a pair of black gauntlets when utilizing the Demon Surge revolvers. Said revolvers shoot out her own negative energy as compressed bullets.
* PowerTrio: In the ''Family Matters'' arc, [[spoiler:Report Siht is TheKirk, Report Taht is TheMcCoy, and Report Nwonknu is TheSpock]].
* PrivateEyeMonologue:
** The Yay Agenda arc runneth over with it. Every single strip includes at least one grim remark by Report (even the ones that don't feature him ''per se'').
--> "A pair of Italians inviting you to see their boss was the clue to start running fast. But I didn't. If the Don wanted to see me, either I crossed his path... or he had a job for me. Back then, I didn't know what was worse. I do now."
** Brought back in ''Stoolcow Browned'', managing to be both hilarious ''and'' adorable. Became even more hilarious after convinces Ere and Gabe to join in on the fun.
----> '''Report''': "She came to us on an uneventful Saturday afternoon. Well, as uneventful as afternoons can be on Saturday, between Mrs. Naf's pool parties and slaying dinosaurs in F-16s."
----> '''Ere''': "The mid-day sun beat down hard outside as we met her in the ice cream shop for a sundae. Yet for what it's worth, that it could be a rainy Tuesday night; she offered us ice cream, and there's no way I'm passing up a chance like that."
----> '''Gabe''': "Mom only packed tacos in my lunchbox. I ''hate'' tacos, especially when I go in expecting a burrito and get taco instead. After all that was about to happen, though, I've never been happier to [[{{Foreshadowing}} eat a taco]] since."
* ProductPlacement:
** Banner ads appear for the Brackets Equals [=CamelCase=] Equals Brackets Bank; all the characters bank there and ATM logos are plainly visible.
** The series currently is sponsored by Idiocracy Brawndo. Yug Gib would usually carry a spare can of Brawndo in case things got really intense.
* ThePowerOfRock:
** It is revealed that [[spoiler:the Rock In Space station]] in ''Heavy Meta'' arc is ''literally'' powered by rock music, and the whole point of annual festivals is to charge up its energy reserves for the next year.
** Also, Yug is [[ThemeMusicPowerUp literally powered up by the sounds of metal]].
* PullTheThread: Retrope was writing an article on the internet slang and MemeticMutation when she noticed the unusual proliferation of the word "yay" used on the ever-increasing number of fora and image boards. When she noticed the same trend carrying over to the RealLife, she grew concerned. When [[DaEditor her editor]] casually dismissed her concerns as "NewMediaAreEvil" sentiment, she grew suspicious and started spying on him. She eventually overheard him mentioning "the Knights" and saying "yay" after every other word in conversation with a mysterious masked person...
* RecycledInSpace: The Rock In Space concert literally takes place inside a huge space station on geostationary orbit. Which [[VisualPun looks like a large asteroid]].
* RedshirtArmy: Oddly enough, M.O.O.K.S. are the good guys, while R.E.D.S.H.I.R.T. are the bad guys.
* RelationshipReveal: In ''The Great Crash'', it is revealed that [[spoiler:Betrand Ayers and "Ms." Naf are actually an old married couple]].
* TheRemnant: ''Troublesome Heirloom'' reveals that some of Don Dipertni's old mob stayed around after his death. When Marcone tries to invade their town, they approach Retrope to lead them but she flat out refuses:
--> Retrope: "My father was a criminal, yet also a great man. But I am not my father."
* LaResistance: [[spoiler:Eibwen, Neeuq, and a few dozen RedShirts are all that's left of W.I.K.I. after Gabe's death. But they are not about to lay down arms against Dab and his demons.]]
* RememberTheNewGuy: Maku, who suddenly appears in the "Worst Case Scenario" arc and was supposedly always there. However, it turns out [[spoiler: she can manipulate memories and replaced everyone's memories of Retrope with memories of her.]]
* TheRival: Tröper Crüe finds two rival bands at the Rock In Space concert (there are actually many more but [[TheLawOfConservationOfDetail we only get a few glimpses of them]]): Burn The Witch, a {{Trash Talk}}ing, [[ArrogantKungFuGuy nasty-spirited]] black/death metal group, and Lady of War, an all-female power metal band with [[CloserToEarth much more]] [[WorthyOpponent healthy attitude]]. The three of them were the top contenders for the Battle of the Bands until these plans were thrown out of the window.
** EZ declared himself rivals with ''the world.'' [[spoiler: It got him killed soon after by a sniping Ere.]]
** Teller I. Lover is a rival for Report, being a complete anti-thesis in terms of personality and skill.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Axel embarks on a [[ItsPersonal personal]] search-and-destroy mission against the perpetrators of the nuclear attack that [[spoiler:killed Regnis]] and left his brother an EmptyShell. The moment he leaves doubles as a CMOA and the birth of his CatchPhrase.
** Gabe gets the mother of all Rampages when Regnis is kidnapped by Cross's pirates. [[spoiler: Owt needed Gabe to release all his power as one of the 'ingredients' for resurrecting En0]]
* RobotGirl Ty
** Ella as well
* RockMeAsmodeus:
** The irreplacible host of the Rock In Space concert, Amadeus, sports [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eyes]] and a goatee, never takes off his horned helm, and speaks in '''[[EvilSoundsDeep BOLD CAPS]]'''. Hmmm...
** In "Worst Case Scenario", [[spoiler:Dab Gib mentions that he could only take over Hell because the Big S was too busy overseeing "some lame charity show" upstairs]].
* RogueAgent:
** Ere and her commando squad in "Worst Case Scenario" sever all ties to W.I.K.I. after certain events. It still remains open what they are gonna do now.
** Kerrie and Kuro are... not technically licensed members of the WebOriginal/ProtectorsOfThePlotContinuum.
* RunningGag: Everytime a character [[GrandUnifyingGuesses dies]] [[Franchise/AssassinsCreed Altair]] can be seen somewhere in the panel. Possibly also a ShoutOut
* SaveTheGirlScrewTheWorld: Kinda. After receiving a message from Neeuq that Ere is being held at an abandoned factory, Report immediately leaves the defense of the New Trope City to Yug and Eibwen and flies off to rescue her.
* ScheduleSlip:
** After the CliffHanger in strip #515, in which [[spoiler: Ms. Naf is shot just as she was about to reveal ThePlan]], the comic went on a six-month hiatus because the cartoonist was "really busy with work and a new boyfriend." It then resumed, now with a once-weekly as opposed to M-W-F update, until near the end of the GreatCrash arc, when Ere was about to confess her love for [[spoiler: Report]]. Since then, the comic has been on hiatus for another ten months, the cartoonist showing up only to post occasional angry [[TheRant Rants]] telling people to stop complaining about the update schedule of a comic they get for free and by the way, could they please make a [=PayPal=] donation to support the comic?
** It has afflicted the comic again after the "Worse Case Scenario", with [[spoiler:Tsadilb]] repeatedly promising new strips and missing all deadlines.
* SceneryCensor: Somewhat [[spoiler:averted, since Ere's nudity is censored out by a naked Ecivres]]
* ScienceRelatedMemeticDisorder: Mad Scientists are victims of the "Paranoia Plague," which apparently affects 1 in 100,000 Americans.
* SdrawkcabName:
** Practically ''all'' of them, with the exception of Alice.
** Bob, being a palindrome, is a borderline example.
** As well as Bertrand Ayers, but he has an [[LouisCypher entirely different problem]].
** The Eht-Ecas' given and nick names are forwards, but their family and last names are backwards.
* SelfDestructMechanism: Scrap's is "porcupine."
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: Gabe and Report are sometimes like this, though who is who depends on the current circumstances and mood.
* SharedMassHallucination: [[spoiler:The entire "Worst Case Scenario" turns out to be a shared hallucination of Report, Ere, Yug, Retrope, and Gabe after getting hit by a "fear toxin" of unknown origin during a Tröper Crüe rehearsal. In his report about the incident, Yug even lampshades how "shared hallucinations" are supposed to be impossible according to modern science.]]
* SheatheYourSword: Subverted when Report drops his weapons during his fight against [[spoiler:Ere in "Worst Case Scenario" in a last ditch attempt to convince her he's not evil (since they are prevented from talking by an ANC). She takes it as Report's last effort to cast off Viel's influence and takes the chance to "[[MercyKill release]]" him.]]
* ShedArmorGainSpeed: In the "Rose of the Starry Night" arc, Yug gains access to a suit of fictionite armor that uses this premise. He needed the extra speed to save Report from falling off a sky ship.
* SiblingTeam:
** The Gib Brothers, a.k.a. the "LudicrousGibs" (IncrediblyLamePun intended), in their youth before joining the W.I.K.I..
** Also, the [[spoiler:two (later, three) Report half-brothers]] in the ''Family Matters'' arc.
** When Shale teams up with Coal, her little sister, things get hectic.
* SignificantAnagram: If you pay attention to the names of [[spoiler:the two arcs immediately before Report is [[BackFromtheDead brought back to]] [[FakingTheDead continuity]]]], you'll realize that [[spoiler: "A Cribber Kinging Tromp"]] anagrams to [[spoiler: "I'm Bringing Back Report"]], and [[spoiler: "Hexact Prent"]] to [[spoiler: "Next Chapter"]].
* SinsOfOurFathers: In the ''Family Matters'' arc, Report and [[spoiler:his brothers]] are being hunted down by the [[GuardianOfTheMultiverse Hyperspace Eddie]] for their mother's role in TheGreatCrash.
* ShoutOut: ''Hundreds of thousands''. We had to make the TropeOverdosed page just to keep track of how many times each major series has been referenced. And [[SerialEscalation every update has more]] {{Shout Out}}s [[SerialEscalation than the last]]!
* SliceOfLife: Occasionally, the storyline will diverge away from Report's adventures and show his "real life": sleeping, going to work, watching television, etc. [[EpilepticTrees Some say]] this is just Agent Report's imaginings of what his life away from W.I.K.I. would be like; others say that the entire webcomic just a fantasy imagined by the "real" Report.
* SlidingScaleOfRealisticVersusFantastic: DependingOnTheWriter (and particular arc), the story has fallen anywhere between ''Mundane'' and ''Fantastic'' (with the "Ducky" Arc being the only lapse into ''Surreal'' thus far). The more realistic arcs tend to concentrate on characterization and deal with grittily close-to-life issues, whereas more fantastic arcs focus on over-the-top, no-holds-barred action and the RuleOfCool.
* SnarkyNonHumanSidekick: [[@/TheAdvertisementServer Adbot the Robot]]. T.V.T.R.O.P.E.S resident robot, he was built by Professor Suineg. Frequently goes evil, but will turn back to good [[PercussiveMaintenance with one good hit]]. Earns money for Trope-tan via advertising work on the side.
* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: After a long dramatic arc following [[spoiler:Ms. Naf's FaceHeelTurn]], the author spent three weeks on a subplot involving W.I.K.I.'s [[MorallyAmbiguousDucktorate duck]] counterpart, '''F.O.W.L.''' ('''F'''eathered '''O'''peratives '''W'''ith '''L'''asers). It [[EpilepticTrees has been suggested]] that F.O.W.L. will be important to the plot later on.
* SpinOff:
** ''The City of Gold'': written by the same guest author as ''The Yay Agenda'' arc. It features Ere as the main character and sees her [[TrappedInAnotherWorld trapped]] in an [[{{Mayincatec}} Aztec-inspired alternate dimension]], where she is revered as the KungFuJesus by the natives thanks to her gold eyes and fighting prowess and has to lead LaResistance against [[TheEmpire the evil Emperor]] based in the eponymous City of Gold, a.k.a. El Dorado. The canonicity of the spin-off is still disputed, since it is published on an unassociated website and the WordOfGod is still silent on the matter.
** ''Trope Gakuen'': A HighSchoolAU started by Tsidalb in the early stages of the Bronze Age. Features every character introduced in the comic, each slightly retooled to fit the setting. As new characters are introduced in the main comic, they are shortly written into ''Gakuen'' as well.
** ''Lil' Troperz'': a spin-off featuring the characters of TVTropesTheWebcomic as children (or as younger adults, in the case of the "older" ones), but mostly retaining their "original" personalities. Each arc is set up in an episode-like format (complete with "Next Time", "Last Time", and "To be continued"), and are released as "Episodes" rather than single pages. A recurring theme is that each "Episode" starts off rather light-hearted, but always manages to reach varying degrees of dark by the end. Notably, Axel and Tsidalb are separate entities here; the former is featured as a part of the "main" cast, and the latter owns and hosts a local radio station.
* SpotlightStealingSquad: Wikipe-tan has stolen role of the main character several times.
* StalkerWithACrush: [[http://uncyclopedia.wikia.com/wiki/Uncyclo-tan Uncyclo-tan]] to Wikepe-tan. She becomes a ClingyJealousGirl when Trope-tan is in close proximity to the latter.
* StatlerAndWaldorf: The two made an appearance near the end of one of the arcs. As it turns out, they've been watching the comic since day one, and attempted to get it shut down a couple times.
* TheStinger: At the end of the ''The Tröper Crüe Saves Santa'' arc, just before the comic went on Chrismas hiatus, a single strip entitled "Worst Case Scenario" was published. It consisted of six panels, depicting a nuclear explosion, Report and Yug wearing high-rank W.I.K.I. uniforms, Gabe carrying Regnis' bloodied body Pieta-style, Ere ordering a squad of W.I.K.I. commandos to open fire on another W.I.K.I. squad, Retrope pointing a revolver to her head with tears in her eyes, and a dark silhouette of someone overlooking a burning city. The strip ended with a promise: "The Dark Age Is Coming". Needless to say, the forums exploded with attempts to explain what is going on, as the WordOfGod has been silent on the matter.
* StormingTheCastle: Retrope and Ere decide to negotiate a truce with Don Marcone... by breaking into his hideout.
** This is done again during the war between R.E.T.C.O.N and W.I.K.I.
* {{Synchronization}}: There seem to be some between the Prime and the Bizzaro Universe: [[spoiler:Report Siht died soon after Nwonknu was reported dead and Ere D. Nust was killed within hours of D. Uuk's death in ''exactly the same manner'']].
* StormofBlades: In addition to summoning a field of swords, Teller is able to simply spam them with enough force to tear through buildings.
* SquishyWizard: Owt, a very powerful wizard, can be taken out with a single punch to the face. He himself lampshades this.
** Notably averted with Lili, who trained her body to withstand attacks in the case someone got close to her.
* TakingYouWithMe:
** When the Dipertni manor is stormed by Noggard's commandos, [[spoiler:the Don himself waits for Noggard to enter the study, then blows the entire manor wing with the explosives he planted there, anticipating the attack]].
** Aelf tries this after being defeated by Report, but fails when [[spoiler: Report fuses with him and runs fsck]].
* TemptingFate:
** Following exchange from ''Troublesome Heirloom'':
-->Retrope: "Isn't it nice to just hang out once in a while? Where nothing explodes and nobody's coming after your head..."
-->[enter six impeccably dressed young men with Tommyguns]
-->Ere: *frowns* "[[YouJustHadToSayIt You just had to say that, didn't you??]]"
** And later:
--->Retrope: "...Well, look on the bright side; we left all that stuff back home. We're in Japan, away from all of those 'Mafia'-shenanigans."
--->[enter six impeccably dressed young Japanese men with Tommyguns]
--->Ere: *Glares at Retrope*
--->Retrope: "Oh, right...Yakuza. ''Japanese'' Mafia..."
** Between newcomers Kerrie and Kurotsume:
--->Kerrie: "Wait, is this a non-corrupted 'verse? What happened?!"
--->Kuro: "It looks like a 'verse in progress."
--->Kerrie: "My coordinates must have been off…"
--->Kuro: "Even if they were, why are you complaining? It's about time we got a break, and it would be nice if we could do it somewhere where nobody was trying to kill us."
--->*horde of mooks erupts from nearby hill*
--->Kerrie: "Thanks a lot."
** And now this:
--->Report: "Don't worry, we're at the beach. Villains need to respect that, so they won't come for us....especially not right now.
--->(Beat)
--->Report: "See, told ya--"
--->(Horde of clowns jumps from under the sand)
--->Ere: Really?
* ThemeMusicPowerUp: InUniverse example: Gabe uses "Betrayer" to give Yug a HeroicSecondWind during the final battle of "Worst Case Scenario".
* [[ThePasswordIsAlwaysSwordfish The Password Is Always Foamy]]: This one is a MythologyGag from the Golden Age when guest authors used to be able to upload their strips using "foamy" as access password. The password has been changed since then but the gag endures.
* ThereIsAnother: As Bertrand Ayers explains in the ''Family Matters'', Report has two half-brothers in parallel universes through his late mother [[spoiler:Ms. Naf]]: one is [[spoiler:Report Taht from the MirrorUniverse]] and the other, [[spoiler:Report Nwonknu, whose whereabouts are unknown as of yet]].
* ThoseTwoBadGuys: AliceAndBob.
* ThoseTwoGuys:
** The twins U. Troper and T. Troper; also a prime source of {{Twincest}} HoYay.
** Kerrie and Kuro - technically Those Two Renegade Plot-Hopping Continuum Defenders One Of Whom Is Human While The Other Is A Catboy.
* TimeSkip: After the HQ bombing and [[spoiler:Regnis' death]], there is an approximately one week time skip before the story picks up again. It looks like Report has managed W.I.K.I. pretty well, though the perpetrators behind the bombing are still at large.
** After the [[spoiler:Defeat of the Cat people]], a five month skip happens, during which Ere, Report, and Yug train for the upcoming [[spoiler: Captain Exam]]
* TimeTravel:
** Trope-tan and Wikipe-tan mastered this as one of their [[AllYourPowersCombined Combination Powers]] to send Report back to his time.
** Revisited in the Heavy Meta arc, when Report contacts Trope-tan to send himself, Yug, Ere, and Retrope back into the past one week to get one more week for practicing those chords.
** Overlord did this in '''Against Fate''' a la Terminator (though still with clothes) and takes Ere, Yug, and Bertrand to the future the same way.
** Gabe accomplishes this by [[spoiler: moving so fast that he exceeds the speed of light, then moves in an inward spiral (clockwise for forwards, counterclockwise for back) until he reaches the center, spinning rapidly.]] It apparently makes him very dizzy.
* TogetherInDeath: [[spoiler:Report and Ere]].
* TrainingFromHell: Brynn's preferred method of teaching, apparently.
** Gabe ends up enforcing this on Ere in the "Rose of the Starry Night" arc.
* TrainingMontage: Report Nwonknu puts his brothers ([[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and Ere]]) through a seven strip long TrainingFromHell in the art of WikiMagic before they go to face the Guardian. And they top it off with a LockAndLoadMontage just for the cool of it.
* UnsoundEffect: "EDIT!"
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: Played with during ''News to Make a Dragon Jump'': Gabe's family is unperturbed at the fact that he overused his powers and wound up hospitalized, and would recover within a few months, but as a whole are utterly shocked that he is in a steady relationship. [[HandsomeLech Given]] [[ChivalrousPervert what]] [[TheCasanova Gabe]] [[TheHedonist is]], it's wholeheartedly understandable.
* UnwittingPawn: In the TwistEnding of the ''Family Matters'' arc, it is revealed that [[spoiler:the Hyperspace Eddie didn't want to kill the Reports at all. In fact, he wanted them to learn to work together despite their personalities and undergo an intense WikiMagic training within very short time span, because ever since Ms. Naf's death, their worlds were without Entropy Shields and a repetition of TheGreatCrash on a much larger scale was imminent. And since all three of them carried Ms. Naf's genes, he simply decided to use the available resources and make ''them'' into the new Shields.]]
* {{UST}}: Tons of it between Report and Ere, mainly because he tends to act like a jerk at the worst times and her tsuntsun button is apparently hit at the slightest mention that she may be in love with him. There is also a bit between both of them and Retrope recently.
* VillainsBlendInBetter: In ''The City of Gold'', Ere has trouble adjusting to the life in the eponymous AlternateUniverse, whereas Dab Gib has fit right in and hit the ground running.
* VillainSue: Owt is quickly shaping up to be one. The author of "Rose of the Starry Night" has stated that Owt has no weaknesses, since [[spoiler: he immediately drains the power of anything that comes within five feet of him. And he adds that power to his own]]
* WebcomicTime: At one point, ''fifty-five'' strips consistuted ''ten minutes''.
* WeWereYourTeam: Kinda. [[spoiler:Don Dipertni's remaining mobsters rally behind the unsuspecting Retrope as their new banner, and Don Marcone decides to kill their "spiritual center" to break their resistance.]] Retrope is not amused.
* WesternTerrorists: Retrope's investigation of the WIKI HQ nuking currently points towards an obscure terrorist cell codenamed "Tnanmer".
* WhamEpisode: "Worst Case Scenario".
* WhamLine: From "Dark Side of the Moon" [[spoiler: "OREZ is back."]]
* WhatDoTheyFearEpisode: [[spoiler:The "Worst Case Scenario" arc. An as-of-yet unrevealed force has subjected the Tröper Crüe (and Gabe) to a fear gas that made them live (and die) through their worst fears. And the only way to exit it was to die.]] WordOfGod is that the idea was partly inspired by ''[[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries The New Batman Adventures]]'' episode "Over the Edge".
* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: One minor character's power is that she can read things backwards. How is that helpful?
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: Averted in with Sun-Dog, who really doesn't like harming people. Played slightly straighter with the pragmatic Teller. Played absolutely straight with Evif.
* WillTheyOrWontThey: Report and Ere. Ever since strip #10.
* {{Wingman}}: Not in the aircraft sense. Gabe drafts Report (involuntarily) to be his wingman as he hits on Regnis, on the account of him being OlderAndWiser in the ways of love. Shows how serious our Casanova is this time.
* WomanScorned: [[spoiler:Because Report has NoTimeToExplain, Ere falsely interprets his obsession with the investigation of the Knights as a result of falling in love with Retrope, resulting in her brief FaceHeelTurn.]]
* WorldOfBadass: ''Dear God'', you have no idea. Even the little old nun could kick your ass!
* WorthyOpponent: How Teller sees Report after their third [[spoiler: and last]] duel.
* XanatosGambit: [[spoiler:Ere, of all people,]] pulls one off in "Worst Case Scenario": [[spoiler:having realized that Viel is controlling Report, she sets up a meeting at an abandoned factory and orders her commandos to attack him: if he is possessed , he'd reveal himself and they'd have an ample opportunity to put him out of commission; if he is not, she'll be able to reunite with him.]]
* YouAreInCommandNow: Yug, Eibwen, and Neeuq (the new characters in "Worst Case Scenario") are the only active officers of W.I.K.I. after [[spoiler:a nuke takes out ''all'' W.I.K.I. commanders]]. Their first act is to find Report and Ere and delegate the command to them.
* YouDidTheRightThing:
** Neeuq tries to comfort Ere [[spoiler:about Report's death ''at her own hands'' by telling her that this what he would have wanted instead of being possessed by Viel]].
** Also missing the point, except that they [[spoiler:never learned that Report ''wasn't'' controlled by Viel]]!
* YuppieCouple: Some redheaded teenager in a powder blue shirt and khakis. [[EpilepticTrees It's possible that]] [[ChekhovsGunman he might be important later.]]

[[spoiler:Add more if you want!]]
