''Webcomic/MSFHigh'''s forum game (which can be found [[http://www.msfhigh.com/forum/index.php here]]) has been going on for many years, enough that it's begun to gain quite a few tropes unique to it, with many characters. As such, it's necessary to go over them, but having them on the main page would be a bit non-intuitive. This is a page for them.

Note that the forum IRC channels now have their own page, available [[Webcomic/MSFHighIRC here]].
----
* AbortedArc: Any time a GM quits, or a character with significant plot lines leaves.
* AbusiveParents: Destiny's mom wanted to possess her daughter to avoid growing old and dieing, she killed destiny's father to do this followed by being killed herself along with Destiny.
** And that's not getting into Casey's folks....
* AcademyOfAdventure
* ActualPacifist: Both Alexis and Arella. (Or anyone else who has the pacifist disadvantage.) Kazina, an older poster, was a TechnicalPacifist.
* {{Adorkable}}: Swade, so very much. He's a shy, geeky artist with a tendency to put his foot in his mouth, especially in front of cute girls.
** His character is much the same.
* AIIsACrapshoot: Apostate. Apostate's a crap shoot, too.
* AllThereInTheManual: Besides the same issues with MSFHigh proper, many characters have extensive backgrounds written up, or plotted up, that simply have not been publicly released. In addition, a few times, private roleplays have been used to save time on certain actions between NPCS...and these roleplays have not been released.
** And then there's how Michelle got turned into a catgirl...
* AlternateContinuity: [[Webcomic/MSFHighIRC The IRC channels]] are another place to role-play with one's characters, and things often go in a completely different direction than on the forum itself. Certain notable examples: Jax has the memory of his old life back, Robin is a Legion, Karn is actually a nice guy, and don't get us started on Demona...
* AndCallHimGeorge: Mentioned by the Sphinx who finds Adrian cute, who quotes dialogue from the Looney Tunes version.
* {{Angrish}}: See BerserkButton.
** The Librarian also got the border of this, but it was instead represented by Shatner speech.
** There was also one incident where a player was talking with Mitch, and his internet connection failed. It didn't return until several minutes later, at which time he proceeded to let loose with several pages worth of this. His furious typing actually damaged the keyboard. [[InLoveWithYourCarnage Mitch found it to be epic.]]
*** [[OhCrap And then it cut out again a moment later.]]
* AnArmAndALeg: Fable lost her left arm while summoning [[EldritchAbomination a large creature of the void]] to save her coven.
* ArtificialLimbs: Fable was given an artificial arm by [[BloodKnight Yosah]] on her first day. Israfel has a false arm since Seram keeps his real one.
* AscendedFanboy: Matoi Nanashi, a massive fan of SuperSentai and KamenRider is shaping up to be this. He even has gained a pair of boots that allow him to perform a Rider Kick (though none of his attempts at using it on someone have succeeded so far).
* AscendedMeme: Firewood was originally an insult, used by Kirso to refer to the ironically non-flammable Legion. Mitchell, amused by it, had it incorporated as an official racial slur. (And, like all racial slurs, mostly inaccurate).
* AttackDrone: Orchid uses these primarily. Beamspam as well, a mecha kitsune with 9 tail funnels.
* AuthorAppeal: given the nature of the game, pretty easy to invoke...
** Grave seems to have a thing for mecha and amazon brigades, for example...
* AwesomeYetImpractical: Lily loves this. Her weapon of choice is a pair of daggers made from two of her own bones! Simply drawing them (out of her wrists, no less) hurts her.
** AwesomeYetPractical: Lily has tired of this, and worked in a minor healing spell to negate the hit point loss.
* BadassBookworm: Jon, sort of. He's not quite badass yet, but he's studying to be a mage... And he has the bookworm part down pat (he has a bookshelf which spans an entire wall of his dorm room).
* BadassNormal: Gavin. Unable to cast magic, can't swim, and while many others use various fantasy weapons(or ARE one), he just has an old, beat-up shotgun.
* BadAss: Sam and Vaeden.
* BeamSpam: A recent opponent at the arena for Orchid and Seishan was a kitsune mecha with tails that doubled as funnels. Also doubles as FunWithAcronyms as her name spells Beamspam... Beam. Experimental. Armored. Mecha. Special. Particle. Assult. Model.
* BerserkButton: Fortunately, Mitchell (as an obvious example) keeps this strictly to real life, never letting it interfere with his duties as a GM. (Mainly, it's people who try to start [=RPs=] over IM while he's working on MSFHigh, though he often simply logs off and cools down. He has gone into Angrish before, however.)
** Ironically, this troper (Grave) has BerserkButton that is primarily when people spontaneously sign off, or 'hide' offline. He knows they're there, so he perceives it as being blatently ignored by them.... However he usually keeps anger to himself. Being a particularly non-confrontational person.
** NEVER refer to Sentai as Power Rangers to Matoi.
** Do not hug Dracon. He doesn't need a hug. He needs you to stay far away.
** Former NPC/Arena operator Grift despised ANY form of transformation. At all. Period.
* BetterToDieThanBeKilled: Apostate's also got a healthy dose of this from her StartOfDarkness.
* {{BFS}}: Sam wields one of these. A large claymore to be specific. So does Mercurius.
* BlatantLies: The only way Israfel is able to, due to using Social as his dump-stat. Also, the Bad Liar disadvantage can cause this.
* BloodKnight: Yosah, Dracon, and Karn fall into this trope very well. They really don't need any reason to throw themselves at whatever unlucky opponent comes around. Dracon tries to rationalize this with honor, but mostly he just wants to fight.
* BoringYetPractical: Drake prefers this. How does he fight? With his fists. How does he keep his hair? Short. How does he dress? Simply.
* BribingYourWayToVictory: Reward Points may be seen this way, as they allow characters to take certain advantages, and unlock specialized races and facets (classes). The easiest way to get them? Donating money to Wraith.
** Partially averted, however, as one can also get Reward Points by creating fanworks.
* BrickJoke: Mitchell LOVES these. For instance, he introduced an NPC, who appeared to be motivated solely by the promise of cake. (Having played too much Portal) a couple of YEARS later the NPC reappeared...holding a cake. This was planned from the start.
* BrightSlap: Michelle did this to Zero once, followed by a speech about how Zero had the worst elements of boys and girls. Namely being overly prideful and overly emotional.
** During a Non-canon Halloween rp, Matoi brightslaped someone to introduce who he was dressed as, [[MobileSuitGundam Bright Noa]]
* CainAndAbel: [[spoiler: Mel'lon and Rich.]]
* CatchPhrase: Apostate has "Toodles".
* {{Catchphrase}}: Hi, I'm Swade, I'm on a neverending quest to hug all the Legion and make Lana the runner mine. Plays with all the catchphrase tropes.
** A more straight one is Psyche, Arella's player, who uses the phrase "Love and Tentacles."
** Henry also does this to an extent, with his exclamation of "Christ on a bike!"
** Oh, and Mitchell the player has "character smiles", his favorite emotion.
* CatGirl: Michelle is this crossed with Legion, Jess and Mira however are full {{Cat Girl}}s though. Justin Mclish on the other hand is a cat boy.
** Don't forget Neko, the nine-year-old kitten-girl. Pure evil, in much the same sense as GIR.
* CementShoes : The cause of Matoi's death
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Israfel, especially, has changed in character since his first post, and his last one. This isn't true CharacterDevelopment, though he's had quite a bit of that, as it's just the 'I've always been like this' thing. Especially after he shifted to PC, he became much more Stoic, and more of a StraightMan.
* CharClone: Lila leans towards being TheRival type, but is also a rare female example.
* ClassTrip: At the end of every week there is a field trip usually. Which amounts to a large scale adventure.
** If there is not a field trip, there is still a large-scale adventure.
* ClingyJealousGirl: Joni to Swade. Also Jess to... everyone, really.
* ContinuityReboot: In 2014, the GMs realized that the current gameplay system was hopelessly unbalanced and broken beyond repair. Thus, the entire RP was rebooted, and the rules redone to match the revised version of the ruleset for the tabletop RPG. Many old characters have been re-statted for the new system, but many players have elected to simply make new characters instead. See also TimeSkip.
* CuddleBug: Mitchell. Michelle, sometimes. Jess Necano, definitely, tied in with the above trope. Also, Lily, the amnesiac mini-succubus.
* CursedWithAwesome: Jax's player, Adam (often called Jax or Man Behind A Different Curtain), is a Insomniac and will often goes days if not weeks awake, unable to sleep. This has given him a LOT of time to develop often praised writing skill, but he doesn't have much to do at night, and is often left bored and alone, looking up at the ceiling of his room.
* CutenessProximity: Apostate caused this reaction in the soulless undead known as Rich, while Adrian caused this in a Sphinx. Demona has this reaction to almost everything.
* DarkMagicalGirl: Kiana. Her rival, however, is a straight-Magical girl, who's WrongGenreSavvy. Said rival, however, is a OneSceneWonder.
* DeadpanSnarker: Miranda by a mile.
* DefectorFromDecadence: (combined with Heel Face Turn) Casey's 'parents' are frequently mentioned as supervillians. Casey is looking forward to becoming a Super heroine and beating them and their allies down.
* DepravedBisexual: Played with and Averted. Seram is, like a certain character from Dragon Age, both depraved and bisexual. However, there's not a real relation, and she retains her bisexuality after her HeelFaceTurn. Michelle, meanwhile, completely averts it.
* DropTheHammer: Ilushia weilds one of these. More recently Danny has taken up wielding one.
* DysfunctionJunction: Par for the course.
** Really, a little bit of insanity is practically required for the characters here.
** As Mitchell once put it: "You're talking about a school where you get to meet a catgirl maidslave, an evil pet catgirl who eats plant-people, a vampire who fights werewolves, a pacifist angel-girl, a evil demon-chick who used to be a nun, an angel who wants to kill demons by becoming a demon-lord, a farmboy soldier who's dating a Legion Queen, a Legion Queen who used to be a foxgirl, the first Legion EVER, multiple animated suits of armor/giant battlemechs, a Chibi possessed by a spirit of murder, an Eldritch Abomination trapped in the form of a cute girl with no face, a Lizard-man who tends to explode, and a bisexual catgirl with partial amnesia and a lust for Anime....And I didn't touch the staff!
** Any characters who are not insane, will quickly have that corrected. Also: " So we now have a cowering divine, a nonStealthy stealthing Kitsune, an imposing knight, a sighing robot and confused divine, add two questionable stable legion girls. Shake well:"
* ElegantGothicLolita: Casey's usual style of dress
* EmergencyTransformation: Too many examples to list. The Nurse's Office is the main cause of this. Often subverted, as the office has used it for non-dangerous transformations.
* EmpathicWeapon: Berlioz has one in Supplice.
* EpicFail: A round of combat that took three to four days to roll, where nobody hit anybody, with eight combatants? This qualifies.
* EvenTheGuysWantHim: Ash. We are not allowed to say more.
* EvenTheGuysWantHim / EvenTheGirlsWantHer: Jax. We don't need to say anymore.
* EvilTwin: Michelle has one, she's a hermit who lives out in the forest. She typically covers herself in bandages though, making it difficult to tell.
* ExpansionPackPast: Israfel and Seram definitely qualify, along with Rei. Less common now, but the backgrounds for a few chars were pretty light. Thus, any information came across as this.
** Jax's story is slowly unfolding, starting with a movie about a girl...
** Almost inevitable as characters, who are (ostensibly) full-fledged people enter the game with a few paragraphs describing the character and his or her past.
** Also, in a few cases of cases (Daniel/Danielle, Zade), the character's homeworld is so heavily fleshed out that the character almost seems to be the backdrop to the homeworld, rather than the other way around.
*** Danielle's home country is loosely based on [[http://www.nationstates.net/nation=vox_libertatem Vox Libertatem]], her creator Tropers/{{MBTC}}'s [[NationStates Nation State]].
* {{Expy}}: Word of Player, Casey comes from a world of super hero and super villain expies. Casey herself intends on becoming one of CuteyHoney
** Jax is also a completely unintentional expy of Ranma, and Tenchi, and several other well known 'middle of the harem' anime characters...
*** Only Jax might end up with the [[MarryThemAll marrying them all]].
** Attention everyone! She's here, she's nice, she's friendly...she's a rotten kind of cute, give it up, for the ZOMBIE [[CompensatedDating ENJO KOSAI]]. Inspired by the song Zombie Prostitute, by Voltaire.
** Nurse Ottoshanti is an expy of Shantotto from FFXI.
** Neko was inspired by her player's cat, with a little bit of Gir (InvaderZim) thrown in.
** Apostate is very explicitly an expy of Durandal from ''VideoGame/{{Marathon}}''.
** Aresu has become an Expy of Keiri.
** Shiron is an expy of the character Steffan Tommas from the game One Must Fall: 2097.
** Sony and his world is a obvious Expy of ''VideoGame/SkiesOfArcadia'' and he specificly is a combination of Vyse and Gilder.
** Smash is an expy of none other than Thunk. if a DistaffCounterpart. Also a Flanderization of general Orc traits. In fact, she's played as if she is mentally retarded.
** Roe is a shoutout of Doc Roe, to some degree. Her insanity and Hair-Trigger Temper have kind of clouded this.Also a shoutout to Tank Dempsey due said temper.
*** Nika is both a Shoutout (See below) and Expy of Nikolai Belinski. Again, obvious.
* FaceHeelTurn: The biggest example would be Gestell, due to his split personality issues, being revealed as the villain of one arc. It's not TheMole, as he had shifted away from hanging out with the players, and did not sabatoge their efforts using this.
* FantasticRacism: Legion get this, a lot. GAN get this sometimes, and the AP tend to have this against everyone. Arachnae, a never-used race, were Legion who were racist against Legion.
* FarmBoy: Sam has this in his orgin combined with soldier.
* FearlessUndead: Leanne the Chibi Vampire. Apparently, undeath keeps the worst of her [[illgirl health issues]] at bay, the reason being that it means her most of her flawed organs don't need to work at all.
* TheFettered: Israfel, due to his code of honor. This is on purpose, to make up for an attempt to become the Ubermensch.
* FiveManBand: Most groups of Students could be organized into these based on who they hang out with usually.
* FollowTheLeader: The player cnaltman62 has had a long-standing habit of placing health bars for his characters in his signature, using the character "█" in different colors. After the ContinuityReboot, other players have begun to pick up this habit as well.
* FreeRangeChildren: Neko. So, very much. Played perfectly straight, too, without any playing with the trope whatsoever.
* GameMaster: Curent GM's include Mitchel as head GM, with Kain Telsa, Mal, Ilushia, Grave and Neimad as supporting GM's. Xiao and Yosah are on backup duty. Past GM's include Kiana, Prophet, Kuda, Pep and Spiral.
** Prophet recently returned, however.
* GeniusDitz: Fable has extensive medical knowledge and is an adequate herbologist, but she can have her duh moments, if her attempt to cure Kain of his fear of toasters is a sign...
* GoodisNotNice: Dejan is from a rough place. It shows.
** [[ChaoticNeutral Dejan is Good?]]
* HairTriggerTemper: Certain [=GMs=]. See BerserkButton, above.
** Roe and Nika are two Legion examples of this, Nika more then Roe.
* HandWave: One character, seldom used, is the Grim Mod, who exists solely to handwave continuity errors. For instance, when the restrooms were retconned as having a forcefield, the Grim Mod posted, and patched those force fields.
* HappinessInSlavery: Jess's 'model line' was an attempt to invoke this trope. Didn't work quite well. Also examined, in her origin story.
* HasTwoMommies: Destiny has her old abusive mom and her newly adoptive mom, Seram. Also May, since her mothers were a legion and a succubus and she was created by an artificial insemination by a genetic sample from before her legion mother was converted.
** Neko has Michelle and used to have Mira (Michelle's ex girlfriend.) However sadly Mira's player doesn't play very much any more. So unless Michelle finds another girlfriend, she's likely to be a single parent.
* HatesBeingTouched: Dracon has a tenancy to react violently to any more physical contact than a short handshake.
** 64bit was a fairy who'd yell rape if she was touched. Also an OverlyLongGag, a ShoutOut gone too far, and a bit of OldShame...
* HeelFaceTurn: Has occurred to a couple of characters. Most prominent would be Seram and Israfel, too villainous [=NPCs=] who were shifted to [=PCs=]. The current [=HeadGm=], Mitchell, is of the opinion that everyone who goes to MSFHigh should be redeemable. Thus, his villain's arcs tend to end with them being redeemed.
* HeroicComedicSociopath: Seram skirts this trope, as she is currently heroic, but was actually designed as a mild sociopath, or at least without empathy.
* ICallItVera: Jax (Player) tends to call his laptop 'Brick'
* IceQueen: Miranda loves to invoke this trope.
* IdiotHero: Drake was designed to subvert this trope; he's a WideEyedIdealist who puts HonorBeforeReason, but he can also fight with logic (or more often, semantics), should the need arise.
* IKnowMortalKombat : The Explaination of Matoi's swordsmanship skills
* ImAHumanitarian: Zade.
* ImplausibleDeniability: There is no Happy Fun Room.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Artists use paintbrushes and the like as weapons.
* ImTakingHerHomeWithMe: Demona's reaction to Moe Squirrel-Zero, almost word-for-word.
** She has also done this to Lily, who is now begging for death.
** Inverted For Casey. She Went Home With Ryan.
* InformedAbility: Uratino, in a sense. He is described as being ridiculously cute, but all art of the character fails to do him justice.
** He also does actions 'cutely' without an explanation.
* [[InnocentFanserviceGirl Innocent Fanservice Girl/Boy]]: Jax.
** Too many examples to list, really. See also TakeOurWordForIt.
* JackassGenie: Averted with Marius, who genuinely wants his master to be happy.
* JapaneseMediaTropes: The setting practically runs on them.
* JerkAss: Vaeden and Richtiss could be this most of the time.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Yosah is mostly one of these, he's a jerk most of the time. But he has his PetTheDog moments.
** Vaedan and Richtiss also might qualify.
* JerkWithAHeartofJerk: Unless Vaedan and Richtiss fit here.
** Karn fits here hands down.
*** UpToEleven: He has a spirit of murder as a {{MORALITY PET}}!
** Shiron, his rival, skirts it.
** Dracon tends to fall here.
* KarmaHoudini: A few {{villains}} and absolute horrors have found their way into the student registry, though presumably there's something heroic hoising them up.
** Yami committed genocide because his girlfriend broke up with him.
** When Apostate's player was asked to codify the specific acts that were a part of her StartOfDarkness, the number of acts that would be considered either war crimes or crimes against humanity reached a total count of 23,284. This doesn't include the "lesser felonies" and other acts that would be considered "normal acts of war".
** WellIntentionedExtremist Iqbal also qualifies.
** Averted with Casey. In addition to feeling nothing but guilt over her past, she has the Damage Magnet disadvantage for karmic reason
* {{Keet}}: Uratino purposely invokes this. See TastesLikeDiabetes, below.
* KillerGamemaster: Malhavoc. This GM grew up playing and running such wondrous titles as Dark Heresy, The World Of Darkness, and Call Of Cthulhu. Shoving him into a happy and merry game like this usually ends in tears abound, and large amounts of viscera splattered all over the walls... he's getting better though.
** Prophet has shades of this, if past arena fights are any indication.
* {{Kitsune}}: Katriel along with Keigra
* KnightInShiningArmor: Albert
* KnightInSourArmor: Dejan
* KnightTemplar: Israfel would like to say that he's very sorry for his early behavior.
* LargeHam: Large Ham's are unable to keep from physically displaying their emotions more obviously than is realistic. Sometimes funny, always goofy and never far from a pun. Hrothulf is a Large Ham more often than not (Have you seen him? He's HUGE!).
* Leanne's design was inspired by Flandre Scarlet from VideoGame/{{Touhou}}. She also has a spell involving [[BulletHell danmaku as well]].
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: It's a forum RP, so easily it has a lot of characters...
* LoveFreak: Arella. Full stop. Working on becoming a MessianicArchetype. Interestingly, her player does not read this wiki, and did not realize what she did. Arella does avert the ineffective and hypocritical parts, however.
** It's to the extent that certain members of the forum have taken to referring to this trope as simply "The Arella."
** Casey even has a disadavantage honor bound: Love freak....
* MacGyvering: On the first field trip, Uratino was able to convert a shielding device into a rail-gun.
* MadScientist: Matoi and Zero
* {{Magitek}}: Quite a lot of things, actually.
** [[CombatMedic Fable's]] artificial arm is a recent example.
* MarshmallowHell: Jax is a frequent victim of this trope, not that others are particularly immune, he just has the high score.
* MartialPacifist: Zade avoids fights like a pacifist. It's more because he doesn't like the risk than because he doesn't believe in killing.
* TheMatchmaker: Casey often tries to be this, though she has yet to pair a couple. (She's not above taking credit for couples that do get together naturally though.)
* MeetCute: Jess is a Runner (technically an InformedAbility, as she has yet to actually do any Running), and deliberately tries to invoke this. Subverted, however, since her two main love interests (Henry and Robin) were not met in this manner.
* {{Miko}}: Jax was one of these before he died.
* MonsterClown: Oliver when he was clownfied by Silnak the Jester. Of course, Silnak also qualifies.
* MostDefinitelyNotAVillain: Xadan, an evil AI, falls under this big time.
* MuggingTheMonster: This can happen if a PC decides to attack someone who's higher level, or happens to have lots of advantages. Especially prominant before the rules revamps.
* MundaneMadeAwesome: [[http://msfhigh.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=63&t=6671&sid=aa3db93ea4d6189ef208675d7516e3f3&start=3300#p257092 Yosah makes origami.]]
* NamedWeapon: Bloodmoon, Wastelander, Machbreaker, quite a few students have named weapons.
* [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Nice Job Breaking Her Antihero]]: Karn's jerkass behavior broke Aresu. Before, she was a kindhearted (if occasionally mischievous) nurse. Now, she's pretty much Keiri.
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: Zombots, half zombie, half robot. Rich, meanwhile, is a cybernetic lich. So he's a Zombie Robot mage.
* NobleDemon: Iqbal So'Shek
* NoodleIncident:
** Norp once tried to discuss garbage rights with Althea. In the words of the police chief himself. "I once had an...incident with Althea. I still have nightmares. What she can do with a whip violates the laws of physics. And human decency. Never will I discuss garbage rights with her again."
** And like all good Noodle incidents, nobody knows what really happened, even Mitchell.
* NotDistractedByTheSexy: Iqbal. He's happily married with ten children back home.
* NumberOfTheBeast: Jax was the 666th person to register on the forum.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Uratino is quite smart, but he pretends naivete, for the purpose of seeming even cuter.
* ObviouslyEvil: Rich, the owner of the magic shop in the mall.
* OneManArmy: Oliver tried to be this in his backstory. Needless to say, he succumbed to an explosive.
* OneOfUs: Many of the [=GMs=], and a few of the characters.
* OneSteveLimit: Mostly played-straight, but it comes close to being averted, with similarly-named characters Drake and Dracon (both of whom are dragons), Dragon (who is not actually a dragon), and Darius Drake (who is also not a dragon).
* OneTrueThreesome: Jess has successfully invoked this trope, although subverted as all is not happy in said threesome; Henry, one corner of the triangle, in particular wants to get Robin, the remaining corner, out of the picture.
* OneWingedAngel: Israfel became one of these for a brief period of time, when he revealed his original goal of becoming Lucifer.
* OnlySaneMan: Again, Gavin. Iqbal /thinks/ he's this.
* OohMeAccentsSlipping:
** Just about any dwarf played by Mitchell, for one.
** Also, Katriel, when she was 'playing' a pirate.
** This happens to Roe a lot. Normal, Brooklyn, and German; a screwed up mind has caused this.
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: Both Dracon and Drake (no relation). They're more like human/dragon hybrids. Closer to the human side.
* OurGhoulsAreCreepier: Zade, of the [[OurDemonsAreDifferent demonic]] subtype, although Zade and his race of ''ghuls'' are not demons. They are ShapeShifting [[ImAHumanitarian corpse eating]] UsefulNotes/{{Romani}} {{expy}}s [[ButtMonkey subject to severe cultural repression]] [[ThoseWackyNazis and even genocide]].
* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: Alexis, justified though in that she's technically not a natural werewolf. Since she wears a cursed mask that is the source of her transformation.
* OverlyLongname: Iqbal So'shek, Great King Ramses the XXIV, Prime Ruler Of All Abydos
* PerkyGoth: Casey Again.
* PettingZooPeople: Quite a few demi's, such as Kain, Michelle, and Justin
* PlayBoy: Playlegion...
* PlayByPostGames: The main style of the game.
* PoirotSpeak: Simone, so very much. Averts JustAStupidAccent, however. Simone can, and does, speak fluent real-french. What makes this hilarious is that she does this in off-topic conversations!
* PowerTrio: Andrew had a mental version of this earler on, with the other two personalities even being called the ID and super ego. ID was a legion girl, where as super ego was a gruff military Sargent. Zero had something similar, with her super ego being Zero tolerance, a psychopathic madman, and zero empathy, who was the ID. Later crab grass was added in, after her time in the legion. She eventually got rid of them all.
* PromotedFanboy: Some of the mods, at the least Danny and Mitchell, qualify.
* ReclusiveArtist: In the the early days Wraith used to play quite a bit on the forums. Now days this is less so, as Wraith is usually busy with other projects, although he can be found in other fora.
* RelationshipUpgrade: Drake and Lily in the library.
* {{Retcon}}: Used quite a bit, to handle continuity errors and various issues.
* RetiredMonster: Rich, however, quite probably qualifies as this. He's a lich, and doesn't seem to regret his actions. That said, there's a reason he is at MSFHigh.
* RobotGirl: Casey, though she came to MSF as a robot boy. Also Yuan.
* RollerBladeGood: Clothesline, who doesn't take them off. Sometimes uses a motorcycle.
* RubeGoldbergDEvice: An artifact appropriately named the "Rube Goldberg Stone" caused two transformations purely by accident via a complex chain of things being knocked over. See here: http://www.msfhigh.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=63&t=1431&start=7170#p226229
* RuleOfFunny: So damned much.
* RulesLawyer: Neimad (Uratino's player) is sometimes referred to as "The Official Rules Lawyer." Basically, he's the guy you go to when you want to test a new race/class/spell or other rules change. This is specifically why he was brought on as a GM.
* RunningGag: All of Stitch's apothecary items are "Rigorously tested". As in they were all tested ONCE.
* ScaryImpracticalArmor: Destiny, it's even dark with skulls on it...
* SchmuckBait: Deviling Hot Sauce, which has 17 million to 17 billion scoville units.
* SelfDeprecation: Mitchell is very fond of this. For instance, his character routinely hate each other, especially Israfel and Michelle.
* SelfMadeOrphan: Destiny killed her mother, along with her self after watching her father die because of her.
** Casey intends on becoming this when she deals with her [[EvilOverlord parents]]
* ShapeShifting: Shape Shifters are a core choice of race. Zade, Orchid, Ryan and others have it by various means.
* ShirtlessScene:
** Jax did this once, going without his sarashi. Destiny was... enamored, to say the least.
** So did Drake, electing to not wear either his vest or shoes for the "Chanbara" Theme Day.
* ShoutOut: Quite a few. Legion Consorts, especially, can get them, seeing as they canonically like to cosplay. Recently, it's included the Dark Magician Girl, and Sarah Ericson from the White Chamber.
** Matoi's/ Matsuri's usual manner of clothing is nothing but one massive cosplay session. So far he's dressed as [[ComicBook/TheSandman Death]], [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX Tidus]] , [[StarOceanTillTheEndofTime Fate Liengod]], and [[VideoGame/WildArms4 Jude Maverick]]
** Danny once used an [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall I am a man punch]] in gym class.
** Henry's best friend who died prior to his own death is named Flynn Taggart, which is the name given to the unnamed marine in the VideoGame/{{Doom}} novels.
** 64-bit is a fairy who can only say speak in single-word sentences, and tends to say "Hey!" quite a bit...just like Navi's audio track.
** One of Prophet's Arena monsters is a massive bone golem that was basically a [[VideoGame/{{Fallout3}} Super Mutant Behemoth.]]
** Lenny, the octopus that lives at the very bottom of the pool, is an obvious reference to Literature/OfMiceAndMen, especially considering Lenny's goal.
** Neko is a pufferkitten: http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/scp-2558-j
** The recently added (and well hidden) Black Crates are not too far off from [[VideoGame/{{Borderlands}} large, red chests that held all kinds of crazy gear]].
** Nika Belinseki is this; Nikolai is technically her father.
** Roe's armor? Following in Prophet's footsteps.
** Iqbal is equal parts RamsesII, UsefulNotes/VladTheImpaler, and DoctorDoom
* ShownTheirWork: Drake was rather excited to be eating potatoes with cheese. Why? Potatoes (not to mention good cheese) were quite expensive back in the Middle Ages.
* SingleTargetSexuality: Joni to Swade. See also ClingyJealousGirl.
* SinisterScythe: Yosah wields one of these.
* SituationalSexuality: With all the gender changes...it's a given.
* SpotOfTea: Sam was quite fond of drinking tea in his down time, as well as [[SpitTake spit takes]].
* StrangeMindsThinkAlike:
** Occured in MSFPD, when both Newt and the Legion Shrubbery, who cosplays as Sarah Ericson from the White Chamber, happened to have the same idea on how to handle a situation.
** And again, with Fenris having the idea to buy Funland, just after someone else said they half expected her to own it. It's almost like the [=GMs=] take ideas from the players.
* SuperDrowningSkills: Anyone with the landlubber disadvantage.
* TakahashiCouple: Jax and Destiny, most notably.
* TakeOurWordForIt: Many examples, often involving a character's backstory. Where justified, this is justified by the loss of prior identity. {{PC}}s are assumed to have lost some amount of memory and capability when they transfer to MSF High.
* TalkingToHimself: While usually avoided, can happen when two characters alt's interact.
* TimeSkip: The ContinuityReboot was handled as one of these. While the exact period of time is undefined, it is estimated to be around ten years. Returning characters have been "reincarnated," returned to the school with their capabilities reset, to do it again. Reasons vary depending on the character, and many of them have had their memories wiped (the biggest exception is Neko, who grew up during the TimeSkip and is now an actual student at the school).
* TokenEvilTeammate: Yosah, Vaedan, and Henry can all fulfill this. Seram, interestingly, has never really qualified.
* TournamentArc: One is currently under progress, as an alternative to the field trip. [[spoiler: Ren won, in an Anticlimax. The fight between him and Dejan may have been a Climax fight, however, and was directly responsible for rules changes.]]
* TropeOverdosed: And how! A single-person example is, oddly enough, Miranda. [[TheMeanBrit She's cold and snarky,]] [[SmartPeopleSpeakTheQueensEnglish speaks very eloquently,]] [[RichBitch is not afraid to remind people of the vast fortune that she sits on back home,]] [[SpotOfTea and is required by law, as a british character, to be a tea-nut.]]
* {{Tsundere}}: Destiny's lately been acting like one, specifically towards Jax. Time will tell if she remains this way.
* {{Tykebomb}}: Iris was this back before she arrived.
* {{Ubermensch}}:
** Israfel wanted to be this, to an extent, but came closer to NietzscheWannabe. He considered the Angelic Protectorate the "Last Men", and had a plan similar to The Betrayer of Planescape Torment. Unintentionally, as the creator had not played Planescape at that time.
** Given the interplay between her absolute self-interest and sense of ethics, Apostate may be put here. This breaks down slightly due to her harsh, [[HeroicSelfDeprecation self-depricating reactions to failure]].
* TheUnfettered: Seram, as a foil to Israfel. Unlike him, she's moved away from this trope.
* UnreliableNarrator: Why do people always assume [=NPCs=] are being honest about their past? Or even what goes on in school!
* UnwantedHarem: Jax is starting to gain one of these. And subverted with Jess, where it's totally wanted, and she is making an effort to get one, in fact.
** MarryThemAll: Casey (member of Jax's Harem) is pushing for this
* WeaponOfChoice : From buster swords to a plain old spoon, Msf High offers a wide variety of weaponry to its students. In fact one of the first things an unarmed student is asked to do is purchase weapons and armor, and between Crazy Hobos, Malicious AIs, and Gym they're gonna need it.
** Dracon wields two swords. Why? because it is awesome and represents his mastery over slashy things. Sub trope CoolSword and DualWielding.
** Roe's Rifle. Doubles as a Shoutout; Pack-a-Punched M1 Garand, now with a GearsofWar Lancer bayonet, ala Mitch.
* WebcomicTime: An hour in game usually equates anywhere between a week and a month real-time.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: On his homeworld, Iqbal was rather...cruel with doling out punishments to criminals. Like Vlad the Impaler cruel. [[TheExtremistWasRight It worked]].
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: A crossover with another forum was once proposed in the following places: http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=17530.0 and http://www.msfhigh.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=6239. it actually fell through pretty quickly. Still, we can imagine...
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse?: Any player who stops posting. Averted with a few of the early banned players, where an explanation was given, and with Sam and Rei, who were given a send-off. Most of the banned players are undergoing an apprenticeship, and Sam and Rei were teleported out of MSFHigh, apparently back to Rei's homeworld.
* WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer: This is the primary key to Iqbal's military doctrine. And primary source of stress relief.
* WideEyedIdealist: Drake falls here, very hard. Though GoodIsNotDumb does also apply.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity:
** It's happened, but listing the most obvious example here would be in bad taste.
** Israfel would be rather embarrassed, considering he's trying to put it behind him.
* YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe: Averted with Drake (who is from a Middle Ages-era world), due to this being one of his player's pet peeves. Drake's speech is very formal, however.
