''[[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=13101535110A19440100&page=1 We Are Our Adventuring Avatars]]'' (full title ''ITT: We Are Our Adventuring Avatars'') is a [[PlayByPostGame Play By Post Forum Game]] on the TVTropesForum and a spin-off of the original [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=i9k31ypluou9s5j9d2w7n23k&page=1 We Are Our Avatars]]. It focuses more on story driven role playing.

Originally made because of players being disappointed with what they felt was a lack of plot from the original WAOA, a second topic was created as [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=13086227680A36860100&page=1 We Are Our Epic Avatars]] but due to issues in player base, interest, and failure to communicate, it was soon discontinued. This game is currently over 200000 posts. New players can leap right in, provided they [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=13100727210A69600100&page=1 read the rules]] and at least introduce themselves.

Obviously, this page is in dire need of WikiMagic and help in order to grow. [[Characters/WeAreOurAdventuringAvatars Character Sheet]] is up, but Crowning Moments of [[Funny/WeAreOurAdventuringAvatars Funny]], [[Heartwarming/WeAreOurAdventuringAvatars Heartwarming]] and [[Awesome/WeAreOurAdventuringAvatars Awesome]] have also been added, as well as [[YMMV/WeAreOurAdventuringAvatars YMMV]] and a [[Recap/WeAreOurAdventuringAvatars Recap Page]].

! '''This thread provides examples of...'''

[[folder:General]]
* AdamAndOrEve: The first names of the two married military oriented protagonists.
* AIIsACrapshoot: Averted with most AIs so far.
** The TDN Langley however played this straight, [[BrainwashedAndCrazy mainly due to being hacked]] but it was later retconned into having a precursor device into her, making her insane.
* LittleBitBeastly: The animal-based Gijinka. Imca (Switches between Eeveelutions), Rhyme (Samurott), Luca Juniper (Lucario), Chibi (wolf), Colonel Adam Longram sometimes (wolf), Lystia and Cabbot (Bunnies), are prime examples.
* ArtificialHuman
** Imca is not natural, but rather artificially created, and while mostly squishy and quite like a normal gijinka, even if she is synthetic, does have some electrical bits in her head.
** Mina, a protosapien clone, is created in an artificial womb as a supersoldier. Her cybernetics inside her are [[OrganicTechnology biomechanical]] which grows alongside her body.
* ArtificialIntelligence: Lots.

* CityOfAdventure: Arakanea, Hal's Kingdom home to refugees from countless worlds, a church of magical girls, diamond mines, beaches, and teleporters to almost anywhere.
* ContinuityReboot: Happened on the fifth of March, the "in-universe" justification for that is when an unknown virus broke the fourth wall, forcing the powers that be to reboot the timeline.
** There is currently a plan to do this at least yearly, treating previous events [[BroadStrokes the way players wish to]].
* CoolHorse: Vanguard the pegasus.
* CoolStarship: The TDN-Mobius and later, the TDN-Terra's Blessing. After the Terra's Blessing destruction, the TDN-Trinity took its place.
* CreatorBacklash: Mr. Kirb admits that his Modern Touhou characters and the location aren't that good in retrospect and he is planning to give them a cosmic retool into something else in a future mini-arc.
** Sunova[=/=]Imca isn't fond of Amaya despite being a love interest to two major characters, due to being pestered to play her.
* CreatorBreakdown: Annoyingly frequent, to the point that players consider the discussion thread one of the worst they've ever partaken in.
* CreatorProvincialism: RhymeBeat is known to live in New York and tends reference elements of it most of the time.
* CyberneticsEatYourSoul: Averted, the Cybernetic characters Eve and Longram are more calm and level headed then a lot of the fully biological ones.
* {{Cyberpunk}} Rhyme and Dave/Mike's Homeworld [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Cyber New York.]] A world still researching breakthroughs in cybernetics, where most of the population are choosing to alter themselves. There is also HardLight technology to some extent and medical breakthroughs that can combat brain tumors and allow for HomosexualReproduction.
* DarkerAndEdgier: Some of the players believe the overall tone of WAOAA is darker than WAOA.
** LighterAndSofter: Though recent developments are seeing it be somewhat lighter, though this may change in the future.
* DepletedPhlebotinumShells: The Terran Alliance developed a variety of special ammunition, whenever if it's supernatural beings, demons, angels, machines, aliens, mutants, monsters, and even gods.
** The "Terran Alliance God Killers" in particular work by encasing the target in a unique, liquid metal, that once it hardens begins to partially fade from reality as a result it is immune to reality warping, [[AndIMustScream trapping the target inside a metal statue for all of eternity]], This metal is formed from subspace bore use, and as such is highly radioactive, and very dangerous on the spacial scale, even capable of causing rift storms if large quantities are present in one area, since it should not completely exist.
* DimensionalTraveler: Most of the cast are this, sharing the same premise with its parent RP.
* DrivesLikeCrazy: Put Eve behind the wheel, your riding experience will be like a roller coaster through hell and Zel's [[UpToEleven even worse]] if he's driving.
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: How [[ModernWarfare Ghost]] died, He got better though.
* DysfunctionJunction: [[WithFriendsLikeThese Disturbingly so.]]
** Where to start?: An orphaned ShellShockedVeteran of a SuperSoldier designated to be expendable (to buy more time) to her superiors, an elite American commander with [[BrokenPedestal issues with a post-apocalyptic facist shadow organization]] with multiple regrets, a purple equine bookworm with SuperOCD and a WideEyedIdealist mindset clashing against CrapsackWorld elements, an angel artist whose dead lover is a ColdSniper, a bumbling scientist who created a reccuring villain by accident, a pacifist fox girl who happens to be immature, a SpaceshipGirl who loves radioactive cola, a trickster illusionist, a trigger happy kleptomaniac witch, a chainsaw wielding schoolgirl with an AxCrazy split-personality, a merc turned chimera, a very eccentric blacksmith whose body got screw up real bad, and finally, a ninja merc with very questionable sanity and they happen to be the recurring characters.
* {{Eagleland}}: Most of the American soldiers in the RP are portrayed positively, that includes the [[VideoGame/{{Fallout}} defected Enclave troopers]], [[VideoGame/{{Crysis}} Tera]], and the [[GhostRecon Joint Strike Force]] (Type 1).
* {{Dystopia}}: The Cipher Brotherhood's remaining bastion worlds, major population centers and megacities under [[BigBrotherIsWatching constant watch of magical propaganda posters]], none of them are in good shape though. This is due to the fact the brotherhood is mainly focusing on their military and scientific research.
* ElectronicEyes : Most Terran characters have these in some form or another. Most of the Hellfire Brigade marines have them too, Longram included.
* EveryoneWentToSchoolTogether: Some characters such as Imca, Luca,Mitch, Dave, Kris, Shiki,and Red are from RolePlay/WAOAHighSchoolAU, now as adults.
* FantasyKitchenSink: Considering this game's a massive crossover, this trope is inevitable.
* FasterThanLightTravel: Mostly for dimensional hopping though.
** Terran Alliance uses a [[PortalNetwork warp gate system]] that spans around their home galaxy.
** The Cipher Brotherhood and the Solaris Federation uses subspace drives to warp into other dimensions instead.

* FullContactMagic : This is Eliko's fighting style.
* FutureSpandex: Protosapien Combat Skins, body armor in the form of spandex-like suits that can be worn over power armor.
* HomosexualReproduction: Ovida is a drug that leads to mutated polar bodies in women, allowing a Lesbian couple to have children genetically theres. Rhyme was born when her mother Carlie was on drug trials for it.
* HumongousMecha
** RealRobot: The [[BattleTech Mad Cat]], and the [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWars Wildraubtier]].
* HyperactiveMetabolism: Terran cyborgs, of which Eve, Amaya, Malak, Blues, [[spoiler: along with Longram and Should]] are included, need a diet high in Protein, Sugars, and Carbs to survive. They can get this through a diet of lots of Meat and Sugary food, or with the Terran issued Cyberboost bars.
* {{Immortality}}[=/=]TheAgeless: Anyone who get military grade Terran cyborg enhancements will be virtually immortal from old age (Type II). However they can killed by external forces such as severe injuries such as multiple gunshots. They can't die from natural causes.
* InferredHolocaust: When the group visited post-Mass Effect 3 Earth, the Catalyst's galactic wide effect did way more harm than good with emphasis on harm.
* InterspeciesAdoption: Mina, a HumanAlien, was adopted by the two human protagonists, Longram and Eve.
* ItsRainingMen: The default method Terrans use to land personal and equipment on a planet, The group some times does the same to get to a planets surface quickly. Usually done using the various forms of Terran armor, all of which include specialized heat-sinking equipment to survive the heat, and [[JetPack built-in thrusters]] to cushion the landing.
* MagicKnight : Several, Like Ghost, Eliko, Xion, and Rhyme.
* MagicalGirl: Two varieties. The Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica inspired ones (most prominently [[VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou Shiki Misaki]] played by Rhyme Beat, and the more traditional magical girl Korin played by Etheru).
** DarkMagicalGirl: And there's the [[SuperpoweredMooks Cipher Magica]], SuperSoldiers with the power of {{Necromancy}} and inflicted with BodyHorror due to their enchancements.
* MamaBear[=/=]PapaWolf: Longram and Eve adopted a cloned human alien they later name Mina. If your a villain and you endanger their daughter, bring a coffin, because what's your going in once your dead. And using their parental wrath to lure them into a trap but all it seemed to do was [[OhCrap piss them off]]. This also applies to their subordinates.
* {{Mooks}}: All of them vary.
** EliteMooks: The 1st Hellfire Brigade themselves are elite mooks.
** GasMaskMooks: The Cipher Troopers are described to having their designs look like this. On the Group's side: The Hellfire Brigade's [[GasMaskLongcoat Riot Gears]] have lower tech versions of the gas masks but only used by specialists or if power armor isn't a good option for the troops.
** HeavilyArmoredMook: The Hellfire Marines, most soldiers from the Terran Alliance, and the Cipher Troopers.
** MechaMooks: Roboscorpions, Mr. Gutsies, {{steampunk}} robotknights, the Metallix.
* MoralityKitchenSink: Some characters such as Twilight Sparkle, and Team Sonic are the most purely heroic characters; the military characters are of ALighterShadeOfGrey, especially since one of them used to commit at least one war crime; NAIA as a whole are anti-heroes are best; most of the villains are of a darker shade of grey; finally, the only darkest one of them all is the Cipher Brotherhood who are at best, WellIntentionedExtremist.
* MugglesDoItBetter: Modern and futuristic weaponry can take down almost anyone and anything.
* OfficialCouple: [[HappilyMarried [=Longram/Eve=], [[OneTrueThreesome [=Rhyme/Amaya/Mike=](pre-reboot)]] [=Rhyme/Mike=], [=Kara/Hayley=], [=Shiki/Vivian=][=Dave/Glados=], and [=Cath/Pala=].
** [=Imca/Luca=] used to be this, but communications between the players became heated and they were broken up, eventually resulting in another Retcon where Imca became another character entirely.
* OutsideContextVillain: Inverted with the groups themselves who are Outside Context ''Protagonists'' to the natives inhabiting the various universes. No one would expect that a highly advanced but dinky starship would be crewed by magic users, robots, AIs, warriors of yesteryear, monsters, and anyone that might be considered myths and that's eliminating the SpaceMarine type characters who are considered Outside Context Protagonists in their own right.
* PoweredArmor: Several Characters to wear this.
** AceCustom: The 1st Hell Brigade's power armor sets are customized by the wearer's preference, making them different from the standard issue type used by the main forces. Another distinctive attribute to their armor are [[ArmoredTrooperVOTOMs the asymmetrical red shoulders]].
*** Eve wears a black set of terran commando armor, most sets are blue or camo, it also has a slit on the left arm and ports along the arms to account for the weapons in her cybernetics.
** On the villainous side: The Cipher Troopers wearing the Superiority Protection Gear armor series, the successor to the New American Empire's Frontline Gear armor series.
* {{Retcon}}: Many elements of the RP has been altered to fit the players' preferences.
** The group encountered the Cipher Brotherhood twice in the past, first at Equestia (Replacing the Stasis Arc), and the second at Time Rift Earth (Technically first major encounter pre-reboot but has a large presence in this.)
** Imca/Sunova has changed the Terran Alliance in many ways, [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=13100727210A69600100&page=475#11860 see here for details]].
* RidiculouslyHumanRobots : Common. Dave, Glados, Glados, Zergus, Wraith, Yuzuki, Yuriko, Eliko just to name a few.
* RobotGirl : A fairly common character type. Glados, Wraith, Yuzuki, Yuriko, Eliko, Blessing, and Sunny (her true body, not the one often seen) are all examples.
* RevolversAreJustBetter: There are many types of them.
** One revolver type in paticular is the rare NAIA Werewolf model, [[HandCannon powerful as a sniper-rifle]], [[ArmorPiercingAttack bypasses armor]], [[SniperPistol range of a sniper rifle]], rate of fire of a battle rifle, holds 8 rounds, and it costs around the trillions to just build one. It is considered an InfinityMinusOneSword and only 20 exist total so far. Wraith owned one of them.
* RunningGag: Etheru's characters tend to question why they see a [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic talking horse]], usually in a long, wordy fashion.
* SapientShip: The TDN Terra's Blessing,the TDN Mobius, and the TDN Trinity.
* SciFiKitchenSink
* SpaceOpera
* SquishyWizard: Twilight Sparkle.
* ShoutOut

** Squeshions calling humans "[[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} mon-keighs]]"
*** Their mini mechas are named [[Series/DoctorWho Travel Machines]].
** The Protosapiens are a tribute to the [[Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey Firstborn]], the first race to gain sentience.
** MARJORINE deleted her emotions to gather more data efficiently, which Etheru has, quite a few times, clarified that this was inspired by Perceptor of ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated''.
** "Like A Boss" by ''Music/TheLonelyIsland'' plays on the radio after Sunny mentioned that Eve drives like the [[VideoGame/SaintsRowTheThird Boss]].
** The Protosapien Combat Skin is a major call out to both to the [[Franchise/{{Halo}} Forerunner Combat Skin]] and the [[Franchise/MetalGear Sneaking Suits]].
** Mina's Gray Glint armor is based on Franchise/{{Gundam}} mobile suits, right down to the helmet's samurai-like appearance and V-Fin.
** One battle with a [[VideoGame/{{Fallout3}} Super Mutant Behemoth]], the mutant uses crunched up cars as boxing gloves, akin to the IncredibleHulk, one character even lampshaded this.
* SpaceshipGirl: The TDN Mobius has a catgirl gynoid as an avatar, and the TDN Terra's Blessing also had a catgirl, that it gave to Blues, The TDN Trinity has a dragon girl one.
* {{Steampunk}}: The resort city of Velestia run on it along with crystal powered {{magitek}}.
* StoryBreakerPower: Before a rule that was recently set up, some contenders:
** The group has a ''lot'' of outside support, making the risk of enemies being too anticlimactic or otherwise unsatisfying in defeat. Somewhat recently mitigated, as of now, as budget cuts have happened.
** NOIR-01, whose power level, as detailed on the Paranoia Fuel entry, is ''nigh-instantly hacking into any computer'', as well as the fact he's immortal, has survived the heat death, and is a time traveler.
* SufficientlyAdvancedAlien[=/=]{{Precursors}}: The Protosapiens, creators of NOIR-01, BLANC-00, the moonship, and related technologies.
* SuperSoldier: There are plenty. [[VideoGame/{{Fallout}} The Enclave's 1st Hellfire Brigade soldiers]], [[{{Franchise/Halo}} the UNSC SPARTAN program]], the Protosapien's Gray Glint clones, and the Cipher Brotherhood's Cipher Commandos and Cipher Assassins.
* ThereAreNoTherapists : Averted, Imca may not be a professional psychologist, but she tries to help every one on the crew as much as she can.
* TakeThat: The Jollywood Executives' jerkass and greedy personalities when possessed by Fassad is a slam against ExecutiveMeddling and related topics.
** Another one.
--> '''Longram''': (On remarking Command and Conquer's Yellow zone in India): "[[VideoGame/FalloutTacticsBrotherhoodOfSteel Looks so much like Chicago]]."
** When Luca & Imca played the data log of the VideoGame/MassEffect3 ending, people don't take it well. Not only they considered how stupid it was, they saw results of it killing almost everyone in the galaxy.
** When thinking about who to troll, [[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} B.B. Hood]] looks through a book called [[AssholeVictim "big book of jerks who deserve it"]]. Among the list are [[Series/DoctorWho River Song]], ElectronicArts, and Creator/MichaelBay.
* ThouShaltNotKill: Twilight, much to her dismay she's in a band of people from a different side of the SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism.
* TimeAbyss: NOIR-01 and BLANC-00 are [[UpToEleven over 40 billion years old]], surpassing ten heat deaths.
* ProHumanTranshuman: Some of the cyborg protagonists with cybernetics didn't mind having them.
* {{Transplant}}: Characters that players used in WAOA or in other games are not uncommon to appear in this game.
* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: There are a few characters in this RP that are less than respectful of AIs. These people are always portrayed negatively.
* WhamEpisode: [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=13101535110A19440100&page=244 Page 244]], [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=13101535110A19440100&page=1588 Page 1588]], and [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=13101535110A19440100&page=8313#207802 Page 8313]].
* WholePlotReference:
** The KingdomHearts arc is meant to be the rough analogues of the {{Disney}} world plots of VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII.
** The Dream Master arc is based upon "Amy's Choice", a ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode regarding the protagonists trying to figure out which world is real and which one isn't. [[spoiler:The conclusion is even similar.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Previous Continuities]]

* AbortedArc: The assassin side plot with Amaya and Rhyme.
** The Second Hell Arc/ Purgatory Arc was dropped due to lack of interest. The WesternAnimation/ToyStory arc got going but was rushed to finish due to lack of interest.
* AcePilot : Malak pilots the 31st experimental divisions aircraft.
* AlienArtsAreAppreciated: Besides solitaire, Salarians love to play VideoGame/{{Touhou}} games.
* AllJustADream: The Dream Master arc, with two scenarios meant to discover which was the dream and which was real. [[spoiler: They both were dreams.]]
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: The Metas are national example compared to other factions. Most large scale civilizations such as the Terran Alliance are lucky to rule most of a galaxy but the Metas rule '''[[DimensionLord an entire dimension]]'''.
* ANaziByAnyOtherName: Stasis, an alicorn, wants to rule Equestria as a perfect world. In other words, a Communist autocrat.
* AndImTheQueenOfSheba: An apathetic and sarcastic Cipher Brotherhood mook told this to a GDI Commando.
--> '''Midori''': "[[BadassBoast I think you misheard, I am a zone commando I make my own damn authority. I passed the training program to become a commando, one with an abysmal success rate, only the best of the best are hand picked for trial, 90% of them are turned down, out of those 10%, 20% DIE in training, out of those remaining 85% DROP OUT OR FAIL... Out of all passing commandos only 30% become zone commandos. I can hijack any vehicle made, I duel wield a rail gun and a missile launcher... and I pilot a Zone suit. I think you have your priorities wrong... I. WILL. PASS. either voluntarily, or over a pile of corpses.]]"
--> '''Mook''': "Yeah, yeah, yeah, and I'm the King of England."
* ApocalypseHow: Summoning the Horsemen of the Apocalypse will allow the denizens of hell and heaven to return to the world of the living, but destroying the world (read planet) they're on in the process.
* ArchEnemy: The group and computer!David Asmodius Shine. Wraith also qualifies.
* ArtifactOfDoom: The Great Game's Master Key, [[MeaningfulName Fassad]], can exploit the holder's desire (usually greed), so it can plunge multiple worlds in chaos.
* AwesomeButImpractical: The Elements of Harmony, they have the power to eliminate or remove evil or corruption but it requires no more than six people for it to work and syncing with them is harder than it looks for some people (especially Saru), and it only fires once.
* BadassCrew[=/=]EliteArmy: The Hellfire Brigade, a battalion of US marines under the command of Colonel Longram. Justified since they used to be soldiers of the [[VideoGame/{{Fallout}} Enclave]].
* BaseOnWheels: The Hellfire Brigade's main base of operations, the Cattle Star.
* BadGuyBar: The Hive in the City of Jollywood.
* BigBad: Master Key Fassad in the Great Game Arc.
** David asmodius Shine, a reoccurring Big Bad.
** The Void, leader of the Cipher Brotherhood.
** Wraith, although her target is the group alone at the moment.
* BigBadEnsemble: Dave and cocompany, Wraith, and the Cipher Brotherhood all oppose the group and each of them have their own goals. Dave doing it out of revenge, Wraith because she's doing it as a hobby, and the Cipher Brotherhood viewed them as a (varying) threat to their god snatching operations.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Before the release of ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', a certain character, Jona Sederis, is shown to be very AffablyEvil to newcomers. Then comes the game proper which we see the founder herself an AxeCrazy psychopath in jail.
* CityOfWeirdos: Jollywood. The inhabitants of the city considered giant monsters, sentient buildings, talking animals, and other strange events to be part of the norm.
* TheClan: The Ovi Clan, a large family consisted of mostly eight feet tall amazonian rabbit women.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Several but subverted by Modern!Kanako, CEO of Moriya Industries. Also subverted when a bunch of Jolllywood CEO's turned out to be only evil when possessed by Fassad.
* DarkHorseVictory[-/-]DidntSeeThatComing: Although the Great Game ended with no winners, [[spoiler: a group of mysterious information brokers ruined the group's reputation by media manipulation, making him/her the sole ''winner'' of the game.]]
* DownerEnding: [[spoiler: How the Great Game Arc [[HeroWithBadPublicity end]][[TheBadGuyWins ed]].]]
* DoomTroops: The Cipher Brothrhood's mooks are intended to be like this, originally a symbol of fear for the Cipherius Empire.
* DramaPreservingHandicap: In order to weaken the tech oriented members, DAVE and Alice sends an EMP over New York and the rest of the East Coast, rendering them useless or without any hi-tech weaponry. Only the normal and magic oriented members are unaffected by this.
* EnemyMine: In order to take on Annihus and his annihilation swarm, the group temporarily teams up with the Cipher Brotherhood for the sake of survival.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Zagerus tried to [[WouldHurtAChild zombify]] [[DistressedDamsel Mina Longram]] into his slave, however the [[StateSec Cipher]] [[RageAgainstTheHeavens Brotherhood]], Fugit, Maestra and Wraith are disgusted at the idea.
--> '''Fugit''': "I may be a bit of a creep but killing kids is not my style..."

* EverythingsSquishierWithCephalopods: The Squeshions, a squid-like alien race.
* {{Expy}}[=/=]CompositeCharacter: Cave Bay was meant to represent, in the player's own words, "Creator/MichaelBay mixed with [[VideoGame/{{Portal 2}} Cave Johnson]]".
* TheFederation: The Terran Alliance, the group's main benefactor and major ally.
* {{Fiction 500}}: [[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Moriya]] [[MegaCorp Industries]] is so absurdly rich that they remodel a extremely tall skyscraper into a vacation spot for executives and that doesn't dent their coffers.
** Wraith is known to have plenty of wealth, enough to hire armies of mercenaries.
** [[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Hakurei Miko's]] fighting style is similar except it's divine power instead of magic.
* GeniusLoci: Most of the buildings in Jollywood are sentient. This surprises plenty of visitors and newcomers alike.
* {{Greed}}: The main motif for the first major Story Arc, the Great Game.
* GreenRocks: Celestial Jewels, the main source of the Cipher Brotherhood's power. Bonus: It gives anyone and anything godly power, can power entire cities and machines, cure diseases and cancer, and even has the potential to create nations (not literally). Minus: Their creation involves [[PoweredByAForsakenChild breaking gods down into a near-limitless energy source]]. [[AndIMustScream Also, the god is fully aware that they just can't do anything about it at all.]]
* GroinAttack: In one battle, Longram delivered this to a [[DemonicSpider Cerberus Phantom]]. Keep this in mind that Phantoms are women.
* HegemonicEmpire: Lupo implied that that the Neo American Empire is this.
* IAmNotWeasel: Oberon, in his Toto alias, is mistaken for a dog because of Toto the dog.
* {{Jerkass}}: Fassad can be such a total asshole. His victims he possessed also get some of his traits.
* KilledOffForReal: Amaya was killed retroactively by War as she was pre-reboot, but like every other Terran she stayed dead.
* KnightTemplar: The brainwashed TDN Langley.
* LeaveBehindAPistol: After Zagerus was defeated, the Desired One comes to his "rescue". She betrayed him by stealing his immortality via kiss and to show mercy, she left behind a desert eagle and a pickaxe.
* LegacyCharacter: [[Franchise/{{Halo}} Noble]] [[HaloReach Six]] became the next Master Chief during an award ceremony.
* LittleGreenManInACan: The Squeshions, alien cephalopods in 8-feet tall MiniMecha called Travel Machines.
* LostTechnology: The Protosapiens' creations. One example is the VSS-Hephaestus (AKA the mysterious moonship) which houses a treasure trove full of them and the ship itself IS Lost Technology that can build them.
* LowCultureHighTech: The Melani tribes on Nalvis have access to modern[=/=]futuristic technology originated from their ancestor colonial starship while their culture is at tribal levels. This haven't made them inept at fully using them though.
* MacGuffin: The eight keys of the Great Game.
** The seven Chaos Emeralds.
* MacrossMissileMassacre : Swarmers of both the Terran Alliance, and Crysis variety are this, the only difference is there guidance system and engines, [[MoreDakka both are quite literally crates, packed with micro missiles, launched from the crate.]]
* MeaninglessVillainVictory: All of China's world conquering efforts in the Time Rift Earth Arc has worked out real well and they even cornered the group to their last stand. However, TheCalvary commanded by General Mitch devastated China's forces to save the battered group. To add insult to injury, China's hold on TimeRift!Earth would be all for naught shortly thereafter.
* MechanicalLifeforms : Metallux is a member of a naturally evolved race of machines, Lockheed evolved from junk...literally.
* MindScrew: The Dream Master arc got weirder and weirder as it drew to a close.
* MinorCrimeRevealsMajorPlot: The Great Game's existence was revealed through this and its true purpose: A failed attack on a frontier town > A secret war among rich and powerful people who fight over eight keys for a wish > A plot to plunge multiple words into chaos by an evil talking key.
* MirrorUniverse: The New American Empire's Earth to GhostRecon!Earth.
* MissionControl[=/=]VoiceWithAnInternetConnection : The Co-Operation or "White Wolf" provides this, a [[http://i821.photobuket.com/albums/zz138/sunovafm/OtherMachines/Yakuza.png C1-A5 Archon]] crewed by, Arcie : Driver, Courier 6 : Gunner ([[MacrossMissileMassacre Swarmers]]) and ([[MagneticWeapons Anti-Infantry Railgun]]), Yakuza : Commander and Relay, Sunny : Intel Manager and Eliko : Drone Operator.
** NOIR-01 sometimes take this role, same goes for Longram when he's not in an active role.
* MobileFactory: The moonship is a science warship capable of creating anything, ranging from armies, fleets, and even large scale civilizations.
** The TDN Langley also function as this.
* TheMonolith: The Protosapiens uses them for multiple purposes, [[MisappliedPhlebotinum usually used as]] [[BiggerOnTheInside pocket dimensional]] [[MundaneUtility storage space]].
* NightOfTheLivingMooks: In the Zombie mini-Arc, the group has to survive a zombie outbreak, some of the variations can get downright strange, some wear power armor, and others are capable of magic.
