''Bloodline Champions '' is a free-to-play [[MultiplayerOnlineBattleArena player vs. player arena game]]. While its use of a single team of one PlayerCharacter per player against another team and bird's eye perspective leads some to compare to other {{Multiplayer Online Battle Arena}} games, its focus and intent is much more different.

All offensive abilities need to be aimed at their targets. Even most of the defensive abilities require targeting in that manner. There is no ManaMeter, only {{cooldown}}s to abilities. Successfully using abilities increase your [[LimitBreak energy meter]], allowing you to cast more powerful or different "EX" versions of two of your abilities for 40% of the bar each, or your ultimate ability for 100% energy. There are [[LevelGrinding no levels within matches]] (though there is such a mechanic for accounts), [[{{Mooks}} no one else to kill in the game]] and [[InstantWinCondition no base to destroy]] in the Arena game mode, the only one that is scored within ladders.

The game modes include arena (no-respawns, kill the other team), conquest (capture the points on the map to stop the enemy team from respawning and kill them all. Respawn times increase as the game goes on) and capture the artifact (Essentially CaptureTheFlag with respawning, and respawn times increasing as the game goes on.). The ladder games are only arena.

Character page is [[Characters/BloodlineChampions here]], holding the classes or "bloodlines" of the game, and has most of the tropes considering the importance of them to the game.
!!This game contains examples of:

* ActionGirl: All female versions of the Bloodlines.
* AnAdventurerIsYou: The Bloodlines are divided into Tank, Melee Damage, Ranged Damage, and Healer categories.
* AllegedlyFreeGame: More or less an AvertedTrope - real money will allow you to get Bloodlines, traits and medallions faster, but provide no other advantage. You can get them all still with spending time playing the game.
* AnachronismStew: The Engineer and Gunner bloodlines fire more modern-esque weapons with the Engineer even firing an EMP pulse in a game where there appears to be no electronics what so ever.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Some of the officer outfits for the bloodline imply this with a few traits associated with {{Badass}}es, like PermaStubble.
* BloodKnight: Everyone's willingness to laugh at their enemy's recent demise gives you this impression of them...
* BondOneLiner: Well, sort of - a killing blow will have the killer making anything from a small giggle to a larger laugh in triumph [[FridgeLogic (even if they themselves are dead at the time)]].
* BottomlessMagazines: Cooldowns and energy (which is gained from hitting with abilities) restrict character abilities. Nothing else.
* BribingYourWayToVictory: Everything but tournament rewards may be purchased with real money. However, the only things that must be purchased with real money are cosmetic. Bloodlines, medallions, and gems can be purchased after a bit of grinding, and four bloodlines are free-to-play every week in multiplayer (as well as being unrestricted playing against bots), giving you time to try them out to figure out which ones you'd prefer to play.
* {{Cap}}: Healing can only restore a certain amount of health depending on who's being healed (roughly 40% on average, generally higher in favour of tank bloodlines). To go past that if your health has gone lower than how much can be healed, you have to use your Bloodline Medallion.
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Players get assigned to either the "Cool" (blue) team or the "Warm" (orange) team. The colors affect character costumes and spell effects. The latter is essential for knowing which skills need to be dodged and which are harmless.
* CriticalExistenceFailure
* CriticalHit: AvertedTrope - abilities always do the same thing if the same situation was replicated.
* ExcusePlot: There's a background, but it's hardly clear what the game actually consists of aside from some references to "The Ancients".
* FriendlyFireproof: Everyone is, totally. The closest thing to an exception is the Blood Priest damaging themselves to cast their healing ability unless they keep stacks from their main attack ability maintained.
* LimitBreak: EX abilities cost 40% energy, and ultimates cost 100% energy.
* HealThyself: The Bloodline Medallion can be used by all Bloodlines to heal themselves. However, it takes a long time and is interrupted by enemy contact.
* HomingBoulders: [[AvertedTrope Nope]], you have to aim your abilities and predict that the enemy will end up getting hit by it.
** In this game, you have to ''let a taunt travel and hit a target''.
* HyperspaceArsenal: Who knows where the Vanguard's throwing axe comes from, or the ammo for the Gunner (though all the weapons they use are shown on their character), the Engineer's munitions (again, their weapon is shown on them - [[SwissArmyWeapon the large gadget they hold in their hands appears to do most of their abilities]]) or the Seeker's arrows...
* InTheBack: Attacks striking players in their back half do extra damage. Avoid it for yourself, and take advantage of it against your opponents.
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: The trope is referenced with there being a diamond title ''called'' Undead Ninja Pirate.
* NoArcInArchery: Averted with the Seeker... [[ShortRangeLongRangeWeapon because the arrows don't go far enough to for it losing momentum to be realistically noticed]].
* [[spoiler: RickRoll: Among the Quick Links in the menu of the game, there is one labeled as "Free Blood Coins" which will actually take you to the video.]]
* RuleSixtyThree: Done by the developers themselves! All the Bloodlines have an alternate outfit which is them of the other gender. Sadly, they have the same clearly-other gender sounds...
* ShortRangeLongRangeWeapon: All projectiles can't go all that far before suddenly disappearing, from an axe thrown, an arrow fired, or a fireball flung.
* ShoutOut: Some ability names. Seeker's old ultimate [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Triforce Arrow]], and Engineer's Boomstick for instance.
** There is a silver title called [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holy_Diver_(song) Holy Diver]].
*** There's ''so many'' titles which are {{ShoutOut}}s, really.
** There is a Blood Priest emote called [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rM4O4-jT3x0 Blood Priest Kid]]. It's complete with lightsaber.
* SillinessSwitch: The Master Chef Glutton outfit, Imposter Ranid Assasin outfit and chibi bloodline avatars are silly examples in a game that otherwise has a setting that seems to take itself seriously. Some of the titles might do this as well.
* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: A player dying with enough excessive damage damage from a hit will have [[{{Gorn}} a huge spray of blood come out of their corpse]] with the game's logo appearing around them on the ground in the same colour.
** There is a Troll Medallion which will change the logo from overkills into a trollface.
* VisualPun: The icon to mouse over and see the {{Cap}} for blood coins earned per week is... a blood coin wearing a blue and white baseball-cap.
