Only one may come out alive...Your character happens to be one of the 24 unlucky tributes chosen for these gladiatorial games. Blood and tears will be spilled, alliances will be forged and broken, trickery and deceit will be used, but will your character go to such extremes in order to survive? Or will they seek to accomplish something more for their friends, family, or even their country?A guide of the rounds can be found in the trivia page.We now have a Character page! Major spoilers ahead. Continue at your own risk!
Amazing Technicolor Population: The Capitol fashions include dying your skin various colors. Capitol celebrity Eagle Vasp, also a stylist in the first few Hunger Games, has blue feathers and skin. Her employee, who simply goes by the name "blue", has bright blue skin. Patricia, Rottie Beten's stylist, has purple skin.
Heroes Prefer Swords: Many tributes and characters use swords. These include Azlin Bluestone, Garrett Lykke, Rettie Benethe, and Ellie Barmier. Subverted for Aras Duval, since he doesn't actually know how to use it (simply part of the uniform).
President Kane also prefers swords but few would call him a "hero."
Heroic BSOD: This happens to MANY people, including Ginger Darton, Rhona Velaro, and Ame Gater
Weather of War: The Gamemakers can control the weather, from storms to blizzards, to clear skies, to avalanches.
You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Several Capitol citizens, including Gamemaker Ludus, escort Jupiter Glee, escort Tropaz Periwinkle and, in part, stylist Vinca Sylvestris. In a similar vein, Velma Twipp has purple hair and Titanianus Starr has rainbow.
Break the Haughty: Deconstructed; Ame's only acting like a narcissistic, overconfident jerk. This is cemented with Ginger mentioning this and his own hallucinations saying that he's useless and going to die anyway. Though the deaths of other tributes throughout the Games doesn't help either.
House of Broken Mirrors: Played With; In Round Two, Ame breaks all the mirrors in a maze because the halucination-induced reflections of his friends, enemies, and allies are telling him that he's worthless.
Shield Surf: Garrett and Ofelia do this to survive an avalanche.
Tropes found in multiple Rounds
Eye Scream: In the first round, Rettie jams her hairstick into Ellie's eye to make her drop her weapon. In the second, Rhona stabs Caleb through the eye with a Muttation horn.
Friend or Foe: First, Ginger mistakes Asher Theorella from district 10 for a Career Tribute. Then, later, Ame thinks Ginger is a hallucination and nearly stabs her.
Kill the Cutie: Rettie died in a flood, and Ginger was stabbed in the stomach.
Mercy Kill: Carsten does this to Levis after she swallows her own poison dart, and then Rottie attempts to do this to Rucks..
Off with His Head!: Played Straight and Played With; In the former, Jack Rackam cuts Jadeite's head off... with an ax, of course. In the latter, Rottie hacked at Ruck's neck with her hatchet as a Mercy Kill.
Sanity Slippage: Lunar and Rottie slowly delve into madness throughout the first two rounds.
