'''''Wicked Awesome Adventure''''' is a webcomic/webgame created by Andrew Heil for the consumption of any viewers familiar with text-based adventure games. It features four "playable character" adventurers (Rhys O'Callihan, Jill "Jet" Thunderson, Cadungery Muffinbottom III, and Alan) who, after surviving a Darwinian Apocalypse, awake to a peculiar world.

* ApocalypticLog - The whole "Haunted House" storyline lampshades and revolves around one of these.
* Possible BavarianFireDrill - Alan seems to have an effect on Rhys and Jet where telling them to do something will result in their compliance (if they understand the order in time). The extent of this effect on other characters is unknown.
* BecauseDestinySaysSo - Cad, according to the Queen, is destined to be/was a fabled wizard and awesome guy. [[http://www.wickedawesomeadventure.com/2010/06/saturday-filler-you-cad.html Someone]] may have stolen [[http://www.wickedawesomeadventure.com/2011/01/249-follow-alan.html Alan's temporospatial device]] to induce [[http://www.wickedawesomeadventure.com/2010/10/196-please-go-east-with-party.html this prophecy.]]

** Indiana Jones appears dead during [[http://www.wickedawesomeadventure.com/2010/12/238-solve-puzzle.html turn 238.]]

** George Washington Carver runs a peanut shop in the [[http://www.wickedawesomeadventure.com/2010/05/102-retrieve-rokkit-juice-can.html desert.]]
** The zombie in [[http://www.wickedawesomeadventure.com/2011/01/253-equip-chew-toy.html turn 253]] may be an homage to or cameo of Edvard Munch's "The Scream."

** John Clark cameos as a ninja in [[http://www.wickedawesomeadventure.com/2011/03/289-go-west-open-coconut.html turn 289.]]
** The Red Heavy from VideoGame/TeamFortress2 works for [[http://www.wickedawesomeadventure.com/2011/05/325-go-west.html the pirates]].
* CowTools - Subverted because the characters do know what they are, but when Rhys, Cadungery, and Jet awake they are in rooms stuffed with strange and sometimes useful implements.
* [[DesignItYourselfEquipment Design-It-Yourself Equipment]] - A speargun out of a vevuzela and sharp stick? No problem. A... brusherhang? Apparently also useful.
** Spirit of the trope most closely followed by the customizable sidekicks. Standard/elective equipment: horns; fangs; claws; tusks; helmet; weapon.
** Equipable weapons are of the sort created not found (i.e. vevuzela spear gun).
* [[DidntThinkThisThrough Didn't Think This Through]] - A hazard of exploring or escaping.
** Jet sets off a trap while trying to escape disaster with the unwilling help of a Candimp.
** Rhys sets off a trap while solving a puzzle in the Haunted House.

* FantasyCharacterClasses - Each PC has one.
** Cad may be a [[{{SummonMagic}} Summoner Magician]].
** Rhys is a [[{{TheGunslinger}} Gunslinger]] - ahem! - Guileslinger.
** Jet is possibly a Rogue[[subscript:Pirate]] or Rogue[[subscript:Scout]]

* FunetikAksent - Rhys assumes a pseudo-Texan patois to get into Fort Ferris by shorting the Confederbots' conversation circuits.
* FriendlyEnemy - Certain Confederbots.
* GargleBlaster - Mule Kick Vision Quest Potion.
** Consumed twice by Rhys. Automatically indicates the end of Rhys' "turn" for a while.
* GuardianEntity - The "Duck? What duck? You're getting off track" duck Rhys accidentally summoned during his first few "turns."
** The duck rarely approves of anything, subverting any AnonymousBenefactor tendencies, and may in fact be a Fnord.
** Entries featuring Alan hint that the duck may be an antagonist or villain.
* GuileHero - Rhys.
* HyperspaceArsenal - The inventory system may be one of these: no limit yet found on Cadungery's bottle capacity.
* IdiotHero - Cad (somewhat).
* ItMayHelpYouOnYourQuest - Red rubber stoppers, saucy literature, scrabble tiles... WickedAwesomeAdventure has them all.
* MindControlEyes - Alan develops these when he stares into an Irrational Portal in turn 262.
** Jill and M. Bison develop these when staring into the Irrational Map.
* MoonLogicPuzzle - Admittedly co-created by players and author, several of these have occurred. Cad and Jet experience them the most.
** [[http://www.wickedawesomeadventure.com/2010/09/189-ask-cad-pad-for-antidote.html Lampshaded]].
* {{Ninja}} - They're everywhere! They're everywhere! So far, Jet has encountered a Darwinian ninja and Rhys has encountered Unionjas.
** Our Ninja are Different. They can hide in nuts with fruit, and [[http://www.wickedawesomeadventure.com/2011/03/289-go-west-open-coconut.html may look like John Clark.]]
* [[NonHumanSidekick Non-Human Sidekick]] - Each PC (assumed, in Alan's case) has a teddy-something sidekick.
** Rhys has a teddyboar [[spoiler: which he lost soon after gaining]].
** Jet has a teddybison.

** Alan has a teddyunknown.
* NoodleImplements - In [[http://www.wickedawesomeadventure.com/2010/06/121-123-show-him-what-for.html turn 123]].
* OurDemonsAreDifferent - Literally. They're red and live in hierarchies, but they're made of-... well, they're Candaemons.
* OurPresidentsAreDifferent - Union States President Philemon Rapsknuckle, the masked wrestler President Action.
* OurZombiesAreDifferent - Cad has created an army of Type V/F-P zombies.
** The [[http://www.wickedawesomeadventure.com/2010/12/233-let-there-be-lighter.html Zommelier]] may be a Type R zombie, re: Brian.
* PitTrap - In WickedAwesomeAdventure, [[TrapDoor these]] have been triggered by the successful solution of a puzzle in a hostile environment.
** [[SchmuckBait Adventurer bait]]? [[StupidityIsTheOnlyOption Inevitability]]? Only the author knows.
* ScheduleSlip - WickedAwesomeAdventure generally updates on the five weekdays (a challenging schedule few webcomics and no adventure games can claim to keep) and updates realtime/in response to player input (removing any chance of buffering). Therefore, when technical difficulties strike (most to be blamed on Blogger), the update schedule stands no chance.
* ScienceHero - Alan.
* SleptThroughTheApocalypse - Each of the playable characters survived in a Darwinian refuge as a HumanPopsicle.
* TalkingIsAFreeAction - The Exposition Bomb only takes a single turn. [[http://www.wickedawesomeadventure.com/2010/10/211-query-ninja-on-political-geography.html Lampshaded]].
** Even the author suggests skipping this WallOfText.
* TimeStandsStill - Cad exerts magic to freeze time and subvert statistics to save the Queen during his first interlude.
* TimeMaster - Alan jumps through time, alternately with minimal control and maximal control (depending on his personal timeline).
* UtilityBelt - All the characters have pockets and use what's in them in UtilityBelt ways.
** Cadungery tries to turn his into a BagOfHolding. [[http://www.wickedawesomeadventure.com/2010/09/187-take-cutlerybottles-check-sandwich.html Lampshaded]].
* VariableLengthChain - Jet's length of rubber hose.
* WigDressAccent - In Rhys' case, it's more of a "Hat Uniform Accent," but he nevertheless assumes it to infiltrate Fort Ferris.
* WritingByTheSeatOfYourPants - The author takes reader suggestions for every daily update, and WordOfGod, he's mostly just making it up as he goes along.
* [[GameOver You Have Died]] - Characters die, but continue to live on in an alternate reality where the players made a different choice.
