Music: A Kiss Could Be Deadly
A Punk Rock band that seems to be knowledgeable about and fond of tropes.

Needs Wiki Magic.


  • Anti-Hero: The song "I Can Be Your Anti-Hero, Baby", natch.
  • The End of the World as We Know It: "The Day Covenant Found the Earth"
  • The Hero Dies: The end of "I Can Be Your Anti-Hero, Baby" in an Ironic Echo of the main chorus line.
    "Even heroes have to die."
  • Heroic BSOD: The girl being sung about in "The Day Covenant Found the Earth"
  • Ironic Echo: The end of "I Can Be Your Anti-Hero, Baby."
  • Just for Pun: The title of "I Wrote You a Love Song" is a play on Sarah Bareilles' "I'm Not Gonna Write You a Love Song", despite the song having little to do with its pun source.
  • Kiss of Death
  • Plot Armor: Discussed in "I Can Be Your Anti-Hero, Baby."
    "Because a hero never dies!"
  • Shout-Out: "The Day Convenant Found the Earth"
  • Slave to PR: The subject of "Damage Control".
    "Please don't call just a “small mistake”
    Not that you would
    But everyday
    You spin the truth and try to pass the blame
    While it gets worse"
  • Villain with Good Publicity: "Damage Control" again, though the song implies that people are seeing through the mask now that things have gotten bad enough.
