Amazon Chaser: He has a crush on General Lydia and wants to become a hero partly so he can be a Battle Couple with her. note the other part of his reason is to emulate his mother.
Dream Sue: He has a dream where he defeats an evil overlord and his army simultanesouly with Awesomeness. He is nowhere near this when he's awake. Not even when he awakens his dragokin powers.
Expy: He's Ben 2.0; a supporting protagonist without combat skills that follows the heroes and gets an Eleventh Hour Superpower. The key difference between them is Benji doesn't say Shout Outs to real world products.
Dark and Troubled Past: All of them have one that explains why they feel the way they do; the three girls were kidnapped and raped by truly evil men and the guy had his hands cut off and left for dead for deserting the Leondian army. All of them function as a Freudian Excuse except for the last one. The only thing his past does is make him angst about how he can no longer truly embrace his precious little sister.
Evil Plan: Awaken Kthonia and wipe out every last man on Draconica because men (except Ravage) are evil.
Females Are More Innocent: The only reason the three women want to wipe out all the men in the world is because they were horrifically abused by men and so they think all of them are evil. Even Kthonia herself fits this trope; Jihadain, her daughter, attacks Daniar, Kalak's wife, and is killed by him for it. Kthonia watches this happen and thinks everything is Kalak's fault.
I Am Not Left-Handed: Ravage has a Super Mode that makes him bigger and stronger and tougher; he uses it when Finn gains the upper hand in their fight.
Mind Rape: Abyss uses Psychic Powers to invade her target's mind, find their worst memory, and uses it to break them psychologically.
Bigger Bad: She is more poweful than all of the knights put together but she is locked away and unaware of their plans to free her. In fact, she's surprised and tries to talk Jihadain out of it until Kalak kills her and she freaks out.
Character Death: She is the first villain that is deliberately killed by the heroes.
Happily Married: She was happy with her husband before she was burned at the stake.
Heel-Face Revolving Door: First she was evil and then she turned good because of her lover and then bad again because of Kalak killing Sali-ka and then pretended to reform to avoid dying again before she was finally killed.
The Juggernaut: Her fight scene is, in a nutshell, her walking down the street while the heroes throw themselves at her in pointless attempts to stop or harm her.
Mama Bear: She was harmless until Kalak killed her daughter, Sali-ka.
Not Using the Z Word: Being a life form that died and then cam back to life as something else, she's technically a zombie but no one uses that word.
Sealed Evil in a Can: Trapped within her heart which was hidden in a place no one would think to look for it.
Man In Shadow
The Chessmaster: Rana didn't send a distress message to Brittania; this guy did. He orcastrated the events in Drewghaven to draw Daniar's attention away from her castle and Erowin's grave. The final scene of the book shows the youngest dragokin's corpse was his goal all along.
Faux Affably Evil: He's casual and affable at all times; even when threatening to rape the person he's talking to.
Handicapped Badass: Deconstructed. He's a big and strong guy but with a bum leg there's little he can do to stop Mordak and Zarracka from destroying Final Shield. Then again, the legs of his Mini-Mecha work fine.
Mean Boss: Rufus shouts abuse at his goblin employees because they're stupid and get on his nerves.
Translator Buddy: The goblins never speak like the other characters and yet Rufus can understand them.
New Old Flame: He had a close relationship with Daniar in the past but she never mentioned him; not even when she started a relationship with Kalak.
Reasonable Authority Figure: He does an admirable job managing his city. To demonstrate: he refuses to let the civilians of others cities die or mutate but can't take in too many or they'll all starve. Also, he insists on protocol when letting anyone in or out of Final Shield.
You Shall Not Pass: Stands in Jihadain's way during the climax and is little more than road bumb to her.
