Tropes found in the SPI Files series include

  • Dragon Lady: Vivienne Sagadraco is referred to as this. Mainly because she really is a dragon.
  • Explosive Breeder: Grendels only reproduce once every fifty years or so, but when they do, they lay three batches of 20-30 eggs each. This is a major reason as to why they haven't been hunted into extinction by SPI Scandinavia (Despite their best efforts).
  • Groin Attack: Fraser's first piece of desk bling - an anatomically correct leprechaun doll with his pants around his ankles - refers to an incident where she cornered a group of naked drunken leprechauns in a McDonald's and tased their leader in the Happy Meal.
  • Superhero Trophy Shelf: Every SPI agent has a collection of 'desk bling', little knickknacks given to them by their coworkers that reference notably impressive or embarrassing things they have done.
