iAntiVirus is a roleplaying forum started by [[http://frzdragon.deviantart.com/ Azer]] and [[http://icywings.deviantart.com/ Icy]]. It was originally a private RP, but it was eventually opened to the public in October, 2007. The setting is in a virtual reality MMORPG with the usual formula; classes, PvP, monsters, quests, etc. However, underneath the public eye is a virtual war going on between VIRUS and FIREWALL. VIRUS is angry at the Admin for being slow to react to hackers, bots, trolls, and such that are degrading the game. Thus, VIRUS was formed to take matters with their own hands. FIREWALL was formed by the Admin to counteract VIRUS and delete the members for playing god.

Note - All character-related tropes MUST go under the Character's page. The main page should be saved for the universe in general tropes and story-line tropes due to the length this article is getting.

!!This Roleplay provides examples of the following:
%%* AHomeownerIsYou
* AbortedArc: This is the rather unfortunate consequence of a member either discontinuing their usage of a character or discontinuing their visits to the site.
%%* ActualPacifist: Abel.
* AllYourBaseAreBelongToUs
** "The Invasion", where FIREWALL invaded VIRUS. [[{{From Bad To Worse}} It]] [[{{CurbStompCushion}} wasn't]] pretty.
** The current "The Raid" arc, where Virus repays Firewall by marching on them with an organised attack plan, complete with a clearly set goal, can also apply to this.
%%* AlternateUniverse
%%* AlternateUniverseFic
%%* AnAdventurerIsYou
%%* AnEntrepreneurIsYou
%%* AnInteriorDesignerIsYou
%%* AndYourRewardIsClothes
%%* AnimalMotifs
%%* AnimalStereotypes
%%* AnimeHair
%%* AnyoneCanDie
%%* ApologisesALot: Abel.
%%* ArtificialGill
* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: This is the way the hierarchy system is set up in both VIRUS and FIREWALL.
* AuthorAvatar
** Several of the characters are self-inserts of their creators. This is intentional on their part and some of them have admitted to them being as such.
** There is also a variant of this in the sense that some of the Author Avatars are how the authors would have played Cyberpolis if it had been accessible to them. Examples of this variant are characters such as Ferrero, Rea and Kujira.
** There are also several other characters who have unintentionally become Author Avatars as they grew and developed.
* BeachEpisode: This can be easily executed by holding a roleplay, a special event, etc. at the Summe'rian beach.
** Several times in the PvP.
* BerserkButton: Insulting Canada in front of Moose. In fact, even just cracking a beaver or hockey joke in front of him could result in blind rage.
%%* BettyAndVeronica
* BlackMagic: One of the four paths of the Awetumik, the Elemental Mage, utilises up to two different elements, of which among them is the element of 'Darkness'.
%%* BlackMarket
%%* BladeOnAStick: Hildr.
%%* BlessedWithSuck: Abel.
* BloodKnight
** Most Summe'rians have a tendency towards this.
** Many members of VIRUS are also like this.
* BoomHeadshot: This can be done by any character who uses a gun as a weapon although it is most effectively carried out by the Gunslinger Class Spa'ringians as it's their speciality.
%%* BoomStick: Quite a few Awetumiks.
%%* BoringButPractical: Medic class Winwintarians.
%%* BreakTheCutie: To Abel. By everyone.
* BrilliantButLazy: Plot wise, this was the reason why Err was one of the longest running "active" subordinates.
%%* BrooklynRage: Cardinal.
%%* BunnyEarsLawyer: There are quite a few characters who exhibit this type of behavior...
%%* CainAndAbel: Jem and Abel. Mahan and Abel too, especially since Mahan is Abel's alternate personality.
%%* CallingYourAttacks
%%* CampGay: Maksim.
* TheCaptain: The current and previous Overlords and Admirals of VIRUS and FIREWALL respectively.
%%* CaptainPatriotic: Moose.
%%* CatGirl: Tora
%%* ChangingClothesIsAFreeAction: HD.
%%* CharacterClassSystem
%%* CharacterDevelopment
%%* CharacterLevel
%%* ClassAndLevelSystem
%%* ClothingDamage
%%* ComedicSociopathy
* ComicTrio: The trainees of Team Abs. Kamui comes up with crazy ideas, Jin has no idea what he is doing, and Paz as the Straight Man. Slightly subverted in the sense that Paz is genuinely too entertained by the two of them to actually attempt to set things straight.
%%* CrossPlayer
%%* {{Crossdresser}}: Tokiwa.
%%* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Cardinal.
%%* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
%%* {{Cyberspace}}
%%* CycleOfRevenge
%%* DarkAndTroubledPast: Arguably, a lot of the characters have pretty sad RL circumstances.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Although VIRUS' uniforms are mostly black in colour, they aren't evil. Well... the ''majority'' of them aren't, anyways...
%%* DateMyAvatar
* DeaderThanDead: When a character gets hits with a Zirus or something similar then the character is gone. Admittedly there is always the possibility of coming back as a new avatar, but the character has to start over from Level 1 and can't join till the next ERA. Ouch.
%%* DeadpanSnarker: Ferris.
%%* DealWithTheDevil: Crowley.
* DeathIsCheap: Taking into account that it's a MMORPG it's a JustifiedTrope. For deletion, see DeaderThanDead.
%%* DecoyDamsel
%%** Toa.
%%** River Styx.
%%* DigitalAvatar
%%* DoomedNewClothes
* EdibleThemeNaming

%%* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons: An update which came along with ERA 21.
%%* TheJailbaitWait: Praline.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
** Rajio may be another one of those people who cusses at people 24/7, but he's really just a softie on the inside. He just has trust issues. Lots of them.
** Ferris, despite his gruff and sarcastic exterior, will consciously go out of his way and risk business credibility to protect his loved ones from harm.
%%** Endemic.
* JustFriends: Also see HeterosexualLifePartners.
** Arguably, the whole of Knife and Arthur Ren's real life household falls under this category, save for Robert (the player behind Nightingale).
*** Jules (the player behind Maelstrom) has had rather... interesting dreams regarding Cal (Knife) and Other Cal (Arthur)...
*** And let's not forget their cat and dog.
%%* {{Keet}}: Marconus.
%%* LevelGrinding
* LikeBrotherAndSister:
** Knife and Kayden get disgusted at even the idea of dating each other. Ditto with Knife and Nephyl. And Knife and almost any other female avatar he has developed a close friendship with.

* PutOnABus: See AbortedArc.
* RealLifeWritesThePlot: Depending on the authors, there have been times when plot arcs were aborted or changed completely due to extenuating circumstances.
%%* RedLightDistrict
* RPGMechanicsVerse: A JustifiedTrope. More like a video game verse though. Rokal has abused this in the past by unequiping his scarf when being strangled once. Thus leaving enough room for him to escape.
%%* SavePoint
%%* ScarsAreForever
%%* SeriousBusiness
%%* SignatureDevice
%%* SpecialSnowflakeSyndrome: Depending on how well it's done may cross into MarySue territory, however the site does encourage new things.

%%* StatGrinding
%%* TooDumbToFool: Dogberry, and it's only exacerbated by the fact that he can't actually speak very well.
%%* TookALevelInBadass: Many, many characters at various points in time. As it is a MMORPG we're talking about it is very much so a JustifiedTrope.
* TwoGuysAndAGirl: Xenaro/Nagi/Nephyl, before two of them up and left.
%%* UnderwaterCity: Hyrion.
* UnifiedNamingSystem: FIREWALL vs VIRUS.

%%* VillainsOutShopping
%%* WalkingShirtlessScene
%%* WalletOfHolding
%%* WorldOfBadass: Completely justified since it's a virtual game.
