"Hi, I'm Monica. I'm 14 years old, and as you can see, I am, like, SO TOTALLY in love with JUSTIN BIEBER!!!!!! Ahh! Oh, and One Direction too."
— Monica, the alter-ego
"Name's James, and don't wear it out. I'm 20 years old, and as you can see, I am, like, SO NOT TOTALLY in love with JUSTIN BIEBER!!!!!! Ahh! (My leg!) Okay, now that was just wrong. But the point is, I'm not really that crazy about Justin Bieber."
Plankton's second name is James, and both James and Plankton are said to be short.
And very much in Alone, where he is a successful architect. James himself also lampshades this trope often when talking about it. However, shipping himself with Ronnie is a joke... Or is it? (James already confirmed that he does love Ronnie.)
Bilingual Bonus: In My Metal, Rainblood is addressed as Rainbird in a chapter after he traveled back in time. In the original My Immortal, Ebony gets misspelled as Ibony in that chapter. Ibon is the Tagalog word for bird. This also hints at James's Filipino heritage.
Call Back: In Chapter 20 of My Metal, a Squicked-out Rainblood repeats Dumbledore's famous My Immortal quote, "WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING YOU MOTHERFUKERS!" when he sees Snape and Lupin having sex in the hallway. Also, Rainblood takes a picture of them as revenge for that time when they took a picture of him in the bathtub.
Clothing Damage: C'ren's shirt faded and got ripped beyond repair over the years she has worn the same thing and never changed clothes. At some point, it would have been just destroyed enough to cover the important bits while still show a lot of flesh.
Exposed to the Elements: C'ren as seen in the artwork linked at Scenery Censor in this page. Despite her lack of clothing, she manages to survive the cold temperature. She is thus characterized as brave and determined.
"Do I look like a green pig to you!?" I shouted at it after the droppings fell on my panna cotta and tangled my otherwise silky, black hair that rivals those of shampoo models. The bustard then transformed into a cloud of smoke.
The Name Is Bond, James Bond: Ronnie Radke and Tom Riddle get introduced this way in Gimme That Red Alert! and My Metal, respectively. (In the former, another person, a hospital nurse, introduces Ronnie to Chris in this manner.) James also introduces himself to Ronnie in this manner in Alone.
Parody Stu: Rainblood. He also seems to be an exaggerated caricature of James. He shares at least 70 percent of James's personal beliefs, including Feminism, hatred of incest, loathing of Twilight and Fifty Shades of Grey, fascination for torture, and love of female metalheads. He is also of Asian heritage. He is said to have artistic skills and mathematical prowess, both of which James has. Just like James, he is also androgynous and described to be short. Just about the only things they don't have in common are Rainblood's metal elitism and Satanism. James believes in Christianity and is a fan of both the 'poser' and 'true metal' bands mentioned in the fanfic.
Product Placement: Very blatantly used in My Metal, where Rainblood says that the octagonal room's walls are covered with Corna Kitchen and Bath Tiles.Fridge Brilliance ensues when the joke behind this is understood. Furthermore, the name of one of his alter-egos, Jïmblöød Røtringpën, is clearly a pun on the Rotring brand of drawing pens. And a more subtle one: My Metal itself is a line in the Dong-A brand of writing materials. Rainblood's real name is Lee Dong Hae. Also, Count Chocula shows up in the chapter where Chäntal and Tom were watching The Exercise.
Ripple-Effect-Proof Memory: Rainblood and Tom Rid, the owner of the Hot Topic store in the Alternate Timeline Rainblood created, who turns out to be Beatrice, the owner of the Cöuture Kvlt clothing store in the timeline before Rainblood travelled back in time. Beatrice then goes on and explains everything to Rainblood, and provides him with clothes.
Self Insert: Rainblood. It's becoming more obvious that he is one as the chapters go by despite being a Spear Counterpart of Ebony. James's personality takes over in the later chapters of My Metal; so much so that the plot twists itself to his needs. And James in Alone, obviously.
Scenery Porn: Another trope that James loves to use in his works, most likely because of Author Appeal. (He is an architecture student.) Lampshaded in Alone, Chapter 3.
After two hours' worth of sitting in my black Lamborghini, I finally got to the site. It was a huge land of rolling hills, with deciduous trees and flowering shrubs dotting it. The grass was a vibrant green with bluish undertones. From a distance, the blue silhouette of mountain ranges could be seen. It was indeed a picturesque piece of land, and I took five minutes to drink in the beautiful sights. Places like this would always remind me that there is a God. And I was certain that it would be a splendid idea to have a drug rehabilitation center built here, in a place that is very conducive to relaxation, revalidation, and restoration.
C'ren's "reality outfit." Despite her ridiculously skimpy outfit that covers almost nothing (her breasts are completely exposed and her vulva can be partially seen below her pink miniskirt in the uncensored artwork), C'ren manages to survive the harsh Russian winters.
And a male example for Rainblood in Chapter 10 of My Metal: His outfit for that chapter is a leather thong resembling the one on Accept's album art for Balls to the Wall and the ones that the guys of Manowar wear, which, of course, showed off his majesticmember, a black studded leather vest that resembles what Rob Halford wears, and thigh-high leather boots for men. He also wears a similar outfit in another chapter.
Several of his artworks depict women wearing skimpy outfits.
Several of Chö Chang's outfits in My Metal also fit this trope. Well, every female character in My Metal anyway.
Unusual Euphemism: A lot of these appear in My Metal, especially with regards to genitalia. Some examples would be "the beautiful scarlet orifice", "majestic member", "a ruby cavern nestled within a black forest." Always overlaps with Purple Prose, and averts the Ikea Erotica found in My Immortal. Furthermore, he refers to bodily fluids as 'ambrosia' or 'sweet womanly flavor.' Always Played for Laughs.
Chick Magnet: There is a girl who told James that had there been more girls who shared her personality, he would be this. Also, when he uploaded a picture of himself on deviantArt, he received comments from girls saying that he looks cute or great.
Crossplayer: James has his OC C'ren, a blonde girl, as his deviantArt icon, and he still uses his pseudonym as his username.
Darker and Edgier: The Monica persona has already been reinvented to be a newly-converted rock and metal fan, although she is still a Justin Bieber fangirl. Word of God does say that she might forsake being a Belieber soon.
Fallen Princess: Monica is depicted as this now. This is seen in his MST of Naruto: Veangance Revelaitons. In the story of the MST, Monica has been cast away because she wrote One Less Lonely Gurl. All she really wanted was to chase her dreams of becoming a famous writer just like Stephenie Meyer. Because of this, she got kicked out of the cheering team, bullied, and dumped by her ex-boyfriend. She acknowledges this as her own fault, however, and accepts James's offer to beta-read the fanfic, which is possibly the fictional explanation of why it has The Remake now. In a span of one year, Monica has apparently matured quite a lot.
Keet: Small? Check. Cute? Check, but YMMV on that one. Colorful? Check. Hyperactive? Check! Regularly loud? AWWWWWWWW YEAH! He's also had a crossdressing escapade more than once. Yes, James IS the textbook example of this trope.
Multicolored Hair: Monica has pink and green streaks in her hair. (She did remove them later on, though.)
The Napoleon: James, but at least he is man enough to not lie about his height on the internet, acknowledge that he does have a Napoleon Complex, and do his best to 'accept what little God gave him.' (Notthat meaning of 'little'.)
Never Bareheaded: All pictures of him show him wearing his signature beanie, even when he is cross-dressed as Monica.
Older than They Look: James is 20 years old. He said so himself that he still gets mistaken for a 14-year-old scene kid because of his ridiculously short stature of 4'10, his feminine face, and his shoulder-length black hair.
One of Us: He has confirmed that he is a TV Tropes fan, although he doesn't edit articles here.
Pint-Sized Powerhouse: James is 4'10. He draws, writes, studies architecture, and designs his blog. Seems too nerdy? Well, back in high school, he was able to beat up a bully. It wasn't easy though. He also plays four sports: taekwondo, badminton, soccer, and eskrima.
The Reveal: The last chapter of One Less Lonely Gurl is a major turning point in the life of "Monica Gilbey Bieber" as a persona. It is revealed in this chapter that Monica is actually a troll named Jimmy/James.
Rousseau Was Right: James strongly believes in this. Heck, he even tried to pinpoint Jo Bel's redeeming traits. Also, most if not all of his stories and works are founded on this principle, and this would most likely explain why he likes to write about Villain Protagonists.
Smarter Than You Look: Monica is actually this. Despite James saying that he was Obfuscating Stupidity as the Monica persona, Monica actually did show some signs of intelligence when 'she' corrected the grammar of 'her' flamers and wrote the insane sci-fi stuff that an average Valley Girl would not think of writing about. Also, 'she' seems to also be aware that men can be victims of domestic violence, as seen in Chapter 5 of One Less Lonely Gurl. Also applicable for James, who looks like an Emo Teen, a type of person often stereotyped as being shallow and dumb.
Writers Cannot Do Math: Literally averted with James. He has tutored people in trigonometry and aced the subject as well.
Would Hit a Girl: Justified here. Since he believes in gender equality, he thinks it is an underhanded insult to a girl to tell her that he will not hit her simply because she is a girl if she really deserves it. He is doing this for the reason of the good guy as said in the trope page.
Yaoi Fangirl: James. He shipped Rainblood with Ignacïo/Harry at least once. Also, he ships Ronnie Radke with Chris Brown and himself, although the latter is a joke.
