This work includes the following tropes:
- Achilles' Heel: Wyatt Earp's weakness is getting his arteries slashed by a polar bear.
- Artistic License: Chimaera admits to doing this in the AFTERWORDs of several of the story. He points out when he altered or completely looked past historical facts or blatantly changed something for the sake of being cool.
- Badass Santa: Santa Claus In! Reigns of Santa
- Bears Are Bad News: The polar bear in Wyatt Earp Vs. Greater Attack.
- Bellisario's Maxim: Invoked in the afterword of Genghis Khan's Teamup, in which the author admits that he learned after writing that Atilla the Hun lived centuries before Genghis Khan, but "taths okay it is all part of the story telling magic. You cans pretend it is okay."
- Brainwashed and Crazy: Merlin
- Cliff Hanger: Wyatt Earp vs. Greater Attack ends with "But then" [sic] immediately after defeating a polar bear.
- Covers Always Lie: The cover of the paperback edition has three lines repeated supposedly from the book, including one that implies Robin Hood battling "300 Spartan mans". No such event happens in any of the stories. Incidentally, 300 Spartan mans never even appear; Leonidas In Falling Destiny has the Spartan ruler taking on Xerxes' forces by himself.

- Mega Crossover: A minor example: Just as Einstein completes his Theory of Relativity at the start of Einstein's Theory of Justice, Thomas Edison appears from the past with a mummified Julius Caesar in tow to steal it. The battle is described in detail, with Einstein's attackers fading to dust for staying in an era far from their own for too long.

"Caser was dysnnrf om yjr back." ! Said a smart police soldiers.
- There is also a passage in the afterword for Light Ball wherein the entire narration suddenly descends into utter madness for a couple of lines before just as suddenly snapping back to (semi-) coherency.
