->'''Fiona:''' ''"You're the first person to say it that way... back where I belong, I mean. Everyone else says home."''
->'''Hall:''' ''"Well, it's not the same thing, is it? Only you can know what is home for you."''

''[[http://supernormalstep.com Supernormal Step]]'' is a AlternateUniverse fantasy webcomic by Michael Lee Lunsford that updates Mondays and Thursdays. Central to the comic are [[TheMultiVerse two universes:]] our normal 'Verse and the Supernormal 'Verse. Fiona, a [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair blue-haired]] but [[BlatantLies otherwise normal]] girl from our regular 'Verse, is accidentally pulled to the Supernormal 'Verse by two men: JerkAss Jim, who is cursed to transform into a [[SealedEvilInATeddyBear stuffed bunny]] whenever he does something malicious, and [[TheCharmer Charmer]] Van, who is following/helping Jim ostensibly [[ForTheLulz for shits and giggles]], but really out of a sense of responsibility.

The comic follows Fiona's efforts [[FishOutOfWater to return to where she belongs]] as well as [[SpannerInTheWorks the effects of Fiona's arrival]] on the Supernormal 'Verse. Although at first the 'Verse appears quirky and strange, tensions boil between [[AsskickingEqualsAuthority de facto]] president Cavan Henderson, whose heavy hand is felt through the omnipresence of [[StateSec Henderson Security]], and [[LaResistance The Nameless]], a mysterious anti-Henderson organization with [[BodyMotifs eyes]] everywhere. Both sides feel that [[MessianicArchetype Fiona is vital]] to their respective causes, but Fiona [[RefusedTheCall isn't interested in]] the problems of a universe she doesn't fully understand. And with the machinations of other strange villains in the Supernormal 'Verse, including the [[TheMadHatter bizarre]] [[HiddenAgendaVillain Mr. Kite]], it seems that getting back to the normal 'Verse will be difficult at best.

Fortunately, she has the teachings of her CrazyPrepared dad, her [[ActionGirl developing combat skills]], and a [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters plethora of potential allies]], including Hall, an [[ShipTease affable]] Henderson Field Marshal [[PlotParallel muddling through]] a [[AwfulTruth troubling journey]] of his own. With some help, Fiona may yet find her way back to [[InsistentTerminology where she belongs]] - or find her way home.

Now has a [[Characters/SupernormalStep Character Page]].

----
!!''SupernormalStep'' features examples of:

* ActionGirl: Fiona, May, Eva, Alice, Em, presumably [[TheMentor Cecilia]]... really, just about any female character that plays a major plot role.
* AdolfHitler: Was a [[AcceptableTargets gremlin]].
* AlienBlood: Hall and Eva have [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=142 black blood]].
* AlliterativeName: Hall Henderson, Vic Valentine.
* AllThereInTheManual: The main cast's full names, ages, heights, weights, and much more can be found on their [[http://zet.deviantart.com/gallery/?12368954#_12368954 character reference sheets]]. They also have theme songs.
* AlternateUniverse: Supernormal Step takes place on an AU Earth with magic and fantasy creatures. However, Earth is virtually unrecognizable - Fiona only figures it out when she sees a map that looks like America.
* AlwaysCamp: Felix the hairdresser.
* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: Just... everyone. Akela is probably the best example.
* {{Angrish}}/SymbolSwearing: Jim, on multiple occasions.
* {{Animorphism}}: Wing the vampire can transform into a giant talking blackbird- but retains his dress shirt and tie.
* AntiClimax: [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=39 A masterful one.]]
** Fiona's reaction [[spoiler: to learning that Jim was trying to pull her dad into the universe]], seen [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=209 here]].
** "Hall, [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=328 you okay?]]"
* ArtEvolution: Comparing current pages with the first few shows a clear improvement over time, especially in proportions and shading. Compare Hall and Eva from their first appearance in [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=15 Chapter 1]] with the first page of [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=180 Chapter 5]], and then [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=289 here]].
** Or just look at this handy dandy [[http://zet.deviantart.com/art/Original-vs-Remake-comparison-189414254?q=gallery:zet/152421&qo=6 redrawn page comparison]] from the art book.
* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: Cavan Henderson was voted dictator of the United States because he single-handidly defeated Hitler...who was a [[AcceptableTargets little green gremlin]].
* AwesomeYetPractical: Gloves. They [[RuleOfCool look cool,]] sure, but they also have a purpose- focusing on gloves, particularly high-contrast ones, allows magic users to focus magic power into their hands. Taken UpToEleven when Fiona's judgement weapon gets put into her gloves.
* AxCrazy: Mr. Kite.
-->'''Mr. Kite:''' Whatever. Nothing else left to burn, I'm bored, let's get out of here.
** And probably [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=243 Jim]]...
* BadassBeard: Hall.
* BadassLongcoat: The Henderson uniform incorporates a duster.
** Also [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=242 Jim]], though he's more of a Jerkass Longcoat (and he spends so much time as a stuffed bunny that it's rarely played up).
* BareYourMidriff: Fiona, very frequently.
* [[FuroScene Bathtub Scene]]: [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=108 Here.]]
* BeardOfEvil: Edvard de Santigo has a [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=77 very malicious-looking goatee]].
* BeardOfSorrow: The only time Van has facial hair.
* BeautyMark: Daisy has one.
* BerserkButton: Derry, as a MoodSwinger, gets angry at the mere mention of Henderson Security, [[spoiler: but he loses it completely when Fiona mentions that the Hendersons made her an offer, and he gets even angrier when Hall rescues her]].
* BlindingBangs: Dave. He also has [[ScaryShinyGlasses shiny glasses]] to complement this at first, but he's [[NerdGlasses not scary at all]].
* BloodMagic: Jules uses it. [[spoiler: Apparently, Van used to practice it]].
* BodyMotifs: [[LaResistance The Nameless]] is represented by a stylized eye.
* BowtiesAreCool: Mr. Kite, Beatle (who has one painted on), and Wing.
* BreathWeapon: Fenris.
* BrickJoke: "Be nice or [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=51 you go]] in [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=79 this jar]] I found."
** Fiona and Jim seem to [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=121 enjoy]] [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=191 this]].
* BuffySpeak: Jules.
-->'''Jules:''' Come along then. You can be my apprentice... or squire... or... whatever.\\
'''Van:''' What does a squire do, Jules?\\
'''Jules:''' I don't know; he squires. We'll look it up in the dictionary later.
** Also, Eva.
-->'''Eva:''' Hall is off investigating stuff on his own again and being generally nonconformist. Me go do with the sneaky sneaky follow time yes?
* CarpetOfVirility: Averted. Van ReallyGetsAround and lacks one. Dave has chest hair and PermaStubble to boot, but he's just an unhygienic [[LonersAreFreaks Loner]] {{Geek}}.
* CastOfSnowflakes: The background characters are deliberately made more unique and interesting than the mains, who are all human or humanoid.
* TheCavalry: Apparently, Hendersons [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=126 aren't totally useless Mooks]].
* CerebusSyndrome: A rare example of a comic that, while gaining continuity and complexity, never really lost the funny. For example, the latest arc sees [[StateSec Henderson Security]] attempting to kidnap [[NightmareFuel anyone who's ever met Fiona]]. However, given the comic's LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters, this [[HilarityEnsues leads to]] [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=339 some confusion]].
* CheekyMouth: At least in the beginning.
* [[spoiler: ClonesArePeopleToo: Hall and Eva.]]
* [[spoiler: CloningBlues: Hall.]]
* ClothingDamage: Hall [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=47 here]], after Eva stabbed him with a pipe. In retaliation to his stabbing her with a pipe.
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Low-ranking Hendersons wear colored bandannas on their gas masks to denote rank. Red is the lowest, and yellow is apparently equivalent to major. The eyes of the masks coordinate in color to the bandanna.
* ComedicSociopath: Jim.
-->'''Jim:''' Awesome! I'm gonna see what colors he turns!
** Eva, too, and Hall to a lesser degree. Many of their scars are from each other. WordOfGod states that the prominent scar under Hall's eye is from "Eva and an [[NoodleImplements ice cream scoop]]".
-->'''Eva:''' And me without my [[CoolAndUnusualPunishment potato peeler]].
* ContinuityReboot: ''Supernormal'' is a reboot of Lunsford's older comic "Stuffed Jim," which can be found [[http://stuffed-jim.deviantart.com/ here]]. It's interesting to compare the two. Some interesting changes: Dave Gold, a minor character in ''Supernormal,'' filled Van's role in "Stuffed," and Hall and Eva were subordinates of Mr. Kite.
* ConvenientlyAnOrphan: Van was orphaned, but this revelation only prefaces his flashback to meeting Jules.
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: Jim's curse. Who would think of turning someone into a stuffed bunny when they act like a jerk? Someone cool, that's who.
* CoolBike: Fiona procures a hoverbike [[spoiler: when she ditches Van and Jim]].
* CrazyPrepared: Fiona's father had a large set of rules and procedures which he taught to his daughter to prepare her for any situation. They have been very helpful, but only in a general way--no one really expects to be pulled into a fantasy world, after all.
* CurbStompBattle: Fiona's spar with Van is over in less than a minute.
** Jim makes fighting hordes of ghouls and vampires look ''easy.''
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Many of the characters, including Fiona if you count her natural hair color.
* CuteLittleFangs: May.
* CuteMonsterGirl: Again, May.
* CutenessOverload: Jim's bunny form induces one [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=13 here]].
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: Lampshaded with "hot lava" [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=23 here.]]
* DeadSerious: [[spoiler: Oh, [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=277 shi---]]]]
* DeadpanSnarker: Akela.
-->'''Akela:''' I'd say in your dreams, but I'd rather you just die.
* DisproportionateRetribution: Eva teases Hall about interviewing Fiona, so Hall [[ComedicSociopath stabs her with a pipe]].
-->'''Eva:''' ''*with the pipe protruding from her chest*'' Uncalled for.
* DissonantSerenity: Derry's smiley face mask has this effect.
** Eva and Hall are not remotely bothered by things like being stabbed.
* DreamSequence: Fiona has one [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=118 here]].
** And another funnier, [[spoiler: slightly disturbing]] one [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=147 here]].
* DudeWheresMyRespect: Played with. When Fiona becomes the hero of Sandy Lake, she gains the adoration of an entire town - but she also feels like her privacy is being invaded and like others are exploiting her fame.
* DynamicEntry: Hall [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=173 makes an entrance]].
* ElectronicEyes: It's unclear if Mr. Kite has these or not.
* TheElevatorFromIpanema: [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=44 Musak!]]
* ElectroMagneticPulse: Magic users generate electromagnetic fields due to their abilities.
* MrFanservice: Van and Hall both, especially as the art improves.
* ExpositoryHairstyleChange: After the four-month TimeSkip in Chapter Three, Fiona's hair has started growing out and showing blonde roots.
* {{Expospeak}}: [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=43 Poor Henderson.]]
* EyesAlwaysShut: Rascal.
** That random old lady in the first chapter, until [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=225 this page]].
* FanDisservice: [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=156 Mr. Kite... shirtless?]]
* FanService: Fiona appears in her underwear multiple times throughout the comic. Van and Hall have both spent time shirtless.
** Many of the wallpapers, and 100% of the pinups.
* FantasyGunControl: Of the third variety. With the prevalence of magic, guns are obsolete in the Supernormal universe.
* FemmeFatale: [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=227 Dollface.]]
* FemmeFatalons: On... Mr. Kite?
* FingerlessGloves: Gloves are HUGE in the Supernormal universe. They [[RuleOfCool look cool]], but apparently they have a [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=102 function]] as well: focusing on the gloves, especially high-contrast ones, helps a magic user [[GogglesDoSomethingUnusual channel magic]] into his/her hands.
* FirstNameBasis: Hall is a Field Marshal with [[StateSec Henderson Security]], but he's too affable to use his title. He and Fiona are on a FirstNameBasis from [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=16 their first meeting.]]
* FishOutOfWater: Fiona, in the beginning. She's getting better, though.
* FiveFingerDiscount: Van, referenced on [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=21 this page]]. Well, sort of...
* FiveManBand: With the addition of Akela, we get:
** TheHero: Fiona
** TheLancer: Van
** TheBigGuy: Jim
** TheSmartGuy: Akela
** TheChick: May
** TheMentor: Cecilia
** SixthRanger: Hall (sort of)
* FluffyTheTerrible: Mr. Wigglewiskers, but [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=254 only to non-friendly targets]].
* ForeignCussWord[=/=]GoshDangItToHeck: Elvina's "I don't give a flying Faust!" Doubles as a literary ShoutOut.
* ForGreatJustice: Apparently, it motivated Fiona's father.
* FormFittingWardrobe: Eva likes to flaunt her assets.
* FridgeHorror: In-universe literal example [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=72 here]].
* FriendInTheBlackMarket: Vic Valentine.
* FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire: May.
* FullContactMagic: Fiona's fighting style definitely [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=515 qualifies]].
* FunetikAksent: May gets a large amount of lampshading for her ludicrous Irishness. Even her "most understandable accent" is difficult.
-->'''Random Henderson:''' Was that English?
** And later:
-->'''Dave:''' Wh-what did she just say?\\
'''Jim:''' [[RunningGag Were they even words?]]
** Apparently, [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=202 it runs in the family]].
*** And the joke continues. Even Akela snarks about it.
-->'''Fiona:''' Fill me in later when you can control your accent!
* FunWithAcronyms[=/=]OverlyLongName: The Office of Acquisitions in Benefit of One and Once More the Good Mr. Kite. Catastrophe Incorporated in the Manner of Manners.
* FunWithSubtitles: "Local Hero: Found a Thing."
* GasMaskMooks: Low-ranking Hendersons wear masks.
* GeekPhysiques: Dave is of the skinny and badly groomed variety, with his overall "hairiness" and [[TheNineties nineties grunge flannel]].
* GenkiGirl: Daisy.
-->'''Daisy:''' ''*flinging her hands in the air*'' Ah! Massive downer! We need to fix this ASAP!
** Eva as well.
-->'''Eva:''' ''*flinging her hands in the air*'' Book!
* GoForTheEye: In the most [[EyeScream wince-inducing]] way manageable [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=126 here]].
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Played with. Hall and Eva are by no means made unattractive by their scars, but the scars hardly match the standard "good" scars. Sure, Hall's got the typical cool eye scar, but [[http://zet.deviantart.com/art/Beat-Em-Up-178259655?q=boost:popular+by:zet+supernormal&qo=67 the rest]] are far from typical. Same for [[http://zet.deviantart.com/gallery/?catpath=/#/d3cn7a0 Eva]], albeit less so. Notice how their scars are not smooth to the skin.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=82 "I'm going to teach this band of liars and thieves not to screw with me."]]
** May also does this. Honestly, she [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=83 does it better]].
** And Fenris probably [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=89 does it best]].
* HalfIdenticalTwins: Hall and Eva.
* {{Hallucinations}}: Fenris's poisonous breath induces them.
* HandsOffParenting: Jules, to some degree. He told Van not to leave their house, but he doesn't really enforce it, and he's perfectly okay with Van getting piercings and tattoos.
-->'''Van:''' ''*about his sneaking out*'' Where did you think the piercings and tattoos came from?\\
'''Jules:''' I... thought you might have done them yourself? [[CrowningMomentOfFunny I'm less impressed now]].
* HeroicBSOD: Fiona, after learning [[spoiler: that she will never return to her universe.]] Her [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=82 face]] is [[TheWoobie heartbreaking]].
* HeyYouHaymaker: Nosirrah favors a refined and dignified approach to this: [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=269 "Excuse me."]]
* HiddenAgendaVillain: Mr. Kite. His canon description says it all:
-->Some guy. He's got some motive. Nobody really knows what that is.
* HollywoodAcid[=/=]PoisonIsCorrosive: Fenris's breath.
* HumongousMecha: Britta's robots.
* INeedToGoIronMyDog: Oh, Fiona.
-->'''Fiona:''' I just remembered I left coffee... going... coffee pot... oven thing... on...
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Fiona just wants to get back to where she belongs.
* {{Immortality}}: [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=17 Hall and Eva are]] via a HealingFactor.
* ImmortalityBeginsAtTwenty: Hall and Eva were immortal since birth, but they seem to have aged normally and are both twenty-five.[[note]]It's unclear whether they were simply "born" twenty-five or whether they aged to that point.[[/note]] There is no evidence that they'll stay this way, however.
** Likewise, Cavan's [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld at least 100 years old]], but he looks about 55.
* ImpossiblyCoolWeapon: Fiona's metal... whatever it wants to be, since it's powered by judgment magic.
* InsistentTerminology: Cavan insists on being referred to as [[LastNameBasis Mr. Henderson]].
** Fiona is Fiona, not Fi, Fi-Fi, or Fiifuls.
** Although not really InsistentTerminology, Hall and Fiona draw a line between "where one belongs" and "one's home" [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=146 here]] that makes it difficult to keep saying, "Fiona wants to go back home."
* JerkAss: Jim. This is also the reason he was cursed, though the specifics haven't been made clear yet.
-->'''Jim:''' ''*on helping Fiona after generally ruining her life*'' Fine! Once again, let's [[ItsAllAboutMe detour from my original problem]]!
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Subverted; Jim can be changed back to a human by committing a good deed, but he's pure JerkAss and has to go out of his way to be nice.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler: Nosirrah, Johnny.]]
* KryptoniteProofSuit: Vampires can wear full-body suits to go out during the daytime.
* LaResistance: The Nameless.
** The group Jim was part of in the normal universe [[spoiler: that Fiona's dad founded]].
* LastNameBasis: Cavan insists that Hall and Eva call him "Mr. Henderson", even though they seem to be related (same last name).
* LeanAndMean: Mr. Kite.
* LimitedWardrobe: Averted.
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: Oh. My. God.
** And the thing is? They're [[CastOfSnowflakes all distinct]], and they ''[[ChekhovsGunman all]] [[DestinedBystander come]] [[RedHerringShirt back]]''. Every character reappears in some capacity later in the storyline.
* LonersAreFreaks: Dave isn't what one would call sociable.
* LoveTriangle: There appears to be a [[TriangRelations type three]] with [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=299 Akela]] and [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=227 Hall]] having an interest in Fiona.
* MacGuffin: ''[[TitleDrop Supernormal Steps]]'', the highly coveted book Van and Jim used to pull Fiona to the Supernormal 'Verse. Currently, Henderson Security has the last remaining copy.
* TheMadHatter: Mr. Kite and Beatle seem aware that they're... a bit off.
* MagicAIsMagicA: It's not clear how magic works in the Supernormal universe. It's confidence-based - according to Cecilia, anyone who 100% believes they can do it can use simple magic - and it generates an electromagnetic field but it's never explained where it comes from.
-->'''Van:''' You don't get how magic works? It- [[ShapedLikeItself It's magic]]!
* ManChild: Eva has elements of this.
* TheMentor: Cecilia.
** Jules, to Van.
* MisterStrangenoun: Mr. Kite.
* MoodWhiplash: "Alright ladies, time to play follow the handsome man... [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=248 But seriously we could die at any moment]]."
* MsFanservice: Eva fits this.
* MundaneUtility: Fiona uses her magic as a flashlight [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=93 here]].
* MysteriousPast: Hall apparently made some [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=50 "past mistakes"]], but whether this qualifies as a DarkAndTroubledPast is debatable, as it hinges on Cavan's definition of a "mistake".
* NaiveNewcomer: Fiona.
* NeckSnap: How Fiona defeats Fenris. And it is [[{{Squick}} squicky]].
* NerdGlasses: Elvina and Britta.
* NiceGuy: Van genuinely cares about helping Fiona and treats the people he meets with respect and kindness.
** Additionally, Hall actually cares about people, taking the "Security" half of Henderson Security more seriously.
-->'''Hall:''' It's called being ''nice'' to the citizens; you should try it.
* NiceHat: May and Beatle have sweet hats.
** Dollface, too.
* NonActionSnarker: Dave, of the geek variety.
* NoodleIncident: The [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=10 baby carriage]] [[IncendiaryExponent bonfire]] debacle?
** WordOfGod states that the prominent scar under Hall's eye is from "Eva and an ice cream scoop".
*** The rare explained NoodleIncident: In response to a DeviantArt commenter, whose comment was essentially "I bet he took the last of the ice cream and Eva stabbed him in the eye":
--->'''Lunsford:''' Think [[DisproportionateRetribution more unreasonable]], like he came back from the store and told her they were out of strawberry.
* NotInThisForYourRevolution: Fiona is only interested in doing ''anything'' if it might result in getting her a portal back to the normal 'Verse.
* OhCrap: [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=109 "Dad?!"]]
** Sharp-eyed readers will note that the guy from [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=106 this page]] is the skeleton in the yellow shirt [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=119/ here]], making this an "Oh, Crap" for the reader.
** Cavan's DeadSerious moment (see above).
* OneOfUs: Sort of. Michael Lee Lunsford linked to this page after a ton of work was done on it, so he's at least aware of TvTropes (might have something to do with this page being the fifth link when you search "supernormal step" in Google). So... thanks!
* OlderThanTheyLook: Cavan, according to [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=95 Fiona's intel]].
** Not just OlderThanTheyLook: by Cavan's own admission, he's [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld well over a century]] by now.
** May, as a FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire, is also quite old.
* OrcusOnHisThrone: Cavan hasn't done much besides paint a "creepy blind chick" and speak ominously, [[spoiler: until [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=277 this page]].]]
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: Vampires in the Supernormal universe seem to have a variety of unique powers. Wing leads a "flock" of vampires that can shapeshift into birds, and Nosirrah can turn parts of his body to stone and produce a sword from his abdomen for some reason.
* PaperThinDisguise: Why hello, May, we totally [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=110 didn't see you there!]]
* PlotParallel: Hall's B-plot search for the truth about Mason parallels Fiona's A-plot journey.
* PowerGlows: Magic is represented as glowing energy in most cases.
* ThePowerOfRock: Fiona's new magic technique [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=971 ROCK!]]
* PowerTrio: Fiona, Van, and Jim, until the main group shifted into FiveManBand Territory. Related tropes:
** TwoGuysAndAGirl: Only literally; there's no romantic subtext between the three.
** TheId: Jim
** TheEgo: Fiona
** TheSuperego: Van
* PunkInTheTrunk: May is a Type II.
* RageAgainstTheReflection: After her dad died, Fiona had a moment like this. But instead of destroying her reflection, she [[TraumaticHaircut hacked off most of her hair]] and dyed the rest blue.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Cavan's lost track of his age.
* RedOniBlueOni: Eva and Hall, respectively. See [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=15 here]].
** While Eva and Hall are a very straightforward example, Jim (red) and Van (blue) get a bit more complex. Jim is "red" in the sense that he is more "passionate" (read: irritable), defiant, and brawny; however, he lacks the enthusiasm and zest for life also associated with the red oni. Van is "blue" in that he is laid back, responsible, and somewhat more intellectual; however, he is not even remotely cold, aloof, or stoic.
* RefusedTheCall: Fiona refused to select a side in the Henderson/Nameless war.
* RobotBuddy: A villainous example: Beatle, Mr. Kite's robot assistant.
* TheRunaway: Van ran away from foster care and was taken in by Jules.
** Fiona ran away from home after her dad died. She also runs away from her problems when they're too much for her to handle.
* ScarsAreForever: And since Hall and Eva are both immortal, they're ''really'' forever.
* SealedEvilInATeddyBear: Jim. In his human form, he can "kick people into the stratosphere," but in his stuffed bunny form, he's pretty much limited to shouting expletives.
* SexyShirtSwitch: May wears Van's shirt [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=204 here]].
* SharpDressedMan: Cavan Henderson.
** Van as well. Apparently, Jules insisted that Van have fashion sense.
* ShipTease: Eva constantly harasses Hall for his generally platonic interest in Fiona. This doesn't come to much of anything until [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=227 this page]], when it becomes clear that Eva may be on to something.
%% ShoutOut has been moved to the trivia tab. %%
* SiblingRivalry: Most of those scars on Hall and Eva are ''from each other''.
** [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=33 Backsies!]]
* SilentSnarker: Em.
* SkullForAHead: Jules, sort of. He just wears the skull as "face decor", but he can furrow his (skeletal) brow and emote with it.
* SlasherSmile: [[http://browse.deviantart.com/?q=gallery%3Azet%2F152421#/d3hzzmz here.]]
* SpannerInTheWorks: Sort of. Although Fiona isn't a [[TheFool fool]] or [[TheDitz ditz]], her arrival has thrown a monkey wrench into the gears of the Supernormal 'Verse.
* TheSpeechless: Em has no mouth. This doesn't seem to be a problem for her.
* StateSec: Henderson Security.
* StealthHiBye: "You called, I came; I came, you called? [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=59 What difference is there!]]"
* StockBritishPhrases: In case you didn't notice the [[WearingAFlagOnYourHead giant Union Jack]] on Dave's T-shirt.
* TheStoic: Hall has elements of this. Although he shows a full range of emotion, he's usually calm, cool, and collected. His [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=91 mildly amused expression]] is roughly equivalent to Eva's [[ManChild childish glee]]. Until...
** NotSoStoic: Hall does lose his composure on a few notable occasions: [[spoiler: when [[ShipTease Fiona's life]] [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=173 is threatened]] and when Dollface [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=227 harasses him]], especially about Fiona]].
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Fiona and her dad.
** And [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=306 Inga]] to Elvina and Britta.
* TapOnTheHead: It's even [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=151 here.]]
* TattooedCrook: Alice and Van, with more emphasis on the tattooed than on the crook.
* TechnicallyASmile: [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=154 Welcome to Rascals!]]
** TheUnsmile: [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=154 OH GOD IT'S TERRIFYING]]
* ThinkNothingOfIt: Fiona is a loner type and is pretty upset by the attention given to her after she defeats Fenris.
* ThirdPersonPerson: Felix.
* [[ThoseTwoGuys Those Guys]]: The Trifecta of Might.
* TimeForPlanB: Mocked by Beatle.
-->'''Beatle:''' Trust me when I say plans B through 19 were completely insane.
* TitleDrop: The book Van and Jim used to pull Fiona into the 'Verse is called ''Supernormal Steps''.
* TrappedInAnotherWorld: Fiona. [[SarcasmMode No, really.]]
* YankTheDogsChain: Fiona finally gets to a copy of the book that Van and Jim used to summon her, only to learn that [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=81 sending her back is impossible]]. Turns out to be a [[spoiler: KickTheDog when we learn that Edvard was lying.]]
* YouDidntAsk: Jim offers this excuse [[spoiler: for not revealing that he was trying to summon Fiona's father]].
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Fiona, though her blue hair isn't natural. Additionally, Hall and Eva have green and black hair that seems to be biological.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: Derry and Em can shapeshift parts of their bodies, and Wing and his vampire "flock" can transform into birds.
** Mr. Kite has [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=225 several forms]], [[spoiler: including [[http://supernormalstep.com/?p=176 Hall]].]]
** Dollface is probably the most literal shapeshifter in the comic, transforming herself onto a movie screen [[spoiler: and into Fiona in an effort to [[ShipTease seduce Hall]]]].
* WearingAFlagOnYourHead: Dave Gold is apparently British enough to wear a Union Jack on his chest.
* WhileRomeBurns: Seemingly referenced in this official art [[http://zet.deviantart.com/art/While-He-Fiddles-189554423?q=gallery:zet/152421&qo=4 here]].
* WhiteMaskOfDoom: Derry's smiley face mask.
