Playing With: Blush Sticker
Basic Trope: A little pink oval that looks like somebody stuck stickers onto their cheeks, used to illustrate a cute blush.
  • Straight: Genki Girl April gets a Blush Sticker on her right cheek whenever she's acting cute.
  • Exaggerated: Her little sister June has them all the time.
  • Downplayed: ???
  • Justified: April is a sapient Robot Girl with limited facial expression so the designers put it in to show her emotions.
  • Inverted:
  • Subverted: It looks like April has them at the start of a scene where she's thinking about a crush but then the teacher rips them off and scolds her for it.
  • Double Subverted: The embarrassment of this causes actual blush, rendered in the same way.
  • Parodied: April keeps a pocketful of actual blush stickers, and slaps one on whenever the mood calls for it.
  • Zig Zagged: Blush stickers are used without any real ryhme or reason.
  • Averted: All blushes used are realistic or Luminescent Blush.
  • Enforced: April and June are supposed to have dimples, but the artist had trouble showing this and decided to use Blush Stickers instead.
  • Lampshaded: "Are you blushing, or did someone affix stickers to your face?"
  • Invoked: April is a Robot Girl and a Tin Girl, and keeps stickers with her at all times in order to properly show emotion.
  • Exploited: ???
  • Defied: No one blushes in the series.
  • Discussed: ???
  • Conversed: ???
  • Deconstructed: The blush is actually caused by an unusual birthmark, which makes April worry she isn't attractive.
  • Reconstructed: It turns out that after she's drawn in a more realistic style for some promo art it still doesn't look exactly like a pair of stickers.
  • Played For Laughs: There's a running gag where April blushes everytime her crush Augustus smiles at her. He knows how she feels about him because of this, but she Can't Spit It Out and neither can he.
  • Played For Drama: It becomes clear that April is becoming more and more depressed because of this. She's eventually Driven to Suicide moments before Augustus finally plucks up the courage to ask her out.

Stick a pair of cute red oval stickers to your face and get back to Blush Sticker.
