Our Kickstarter campaign has received $74,000 from over 2,000 backers! TV Tropes 2.0 is coming. There is no stopping it now. We have 4 days left. At $75K we can also develop an API and at $100K the tropes web series will be produced. View the project here and discuss here.
"What lurks inside this reanimated Ragamuffin is what lurks inside the one true heart of all of us - six tenths good intentions driven on by three tenths impish malevolence roughly speckled over by one tenth sheepish faux naivete."
Body Horror: It's shown that the spell that caused Ragamuffin to turn into a doll made needles and threads burst out of his stomach and start ripping apart his skin, only to sew it back together again as cloth.
Can't Get In Trouble For Nuthin': Lenore cuts a woman's nose off in the middle of the street and no one sees her. Lenore kills Mr. Gosh and no one wonders what happened to the guy. Lenore kills an entire group of kids at a birthday party and she hasn't been discovered by anyone. Except the birthday girl, who tries to give a call to the police, but she's killed by accident in the very last moment. Although she doesn't do these things on purpose (or perhaps she does), Lenore is an authentic Karma Houdini .
Character Development: Lenore. In the first issues she doesn't really seem to know that she is doing evil things, but later she is quite aware of it and she actually likes it. This is heavily implied in issue #13 where she declares that her dream is to have her own personal army of small indian boys and to take over the world, while she's smiling mischievously.
Chew Toy: Almost everyone, except Lenore... She's of course the one doing the chewing.
Entendre Failure: When the gnomes told Lenore they have had the chance to multiply in numbers since they have been waiting for her for a long time. And well, they needed to get busy somehow. Lenore doesn't get that.
Intergenerational Friendship: Lenore and Ragamuffin. Their biological age difference is 10-20 years (Lenore being 10 years old and Ragamuffin 20-30 years old) and their real age difference is 300 years (Lenore has been 10 for 100 years and Ragamuffin has been 20-30 for 400 years).
Ragamuffin: Look, man, I don't know what your problem is, but your reign of harassment ends now or I'll cut you, bitch. She's a ten year old girl anyway. You even realize how creepy you are? Mr. Gosh: Yeah, but she's been 10 for a loooooong time now, man.
The Power of Blood: When Lenore pricks her finger and spills a drop of blood on a doll. It turns out to be a vampire that was cursed to be an inanimate plaything, and her blood broke the curse. Unfortunately, he realizes he's still in a doll's body because the curse didn't break properly due to the fact that she is dead.
Ragamuffin: Something's wrong. Your blood should have turned me to my own self. Unless something is wrong with your blood? Lenore: I've been embalmed! Ragamuffin: <Face Palm>
