Roleplay: Hogwarts Hocus
Here.An RPG set at Hogwarts. More of the slice of life with magic variety, though there are a few story arcs.

     Canons referenced. 


This game provides examples of:

  • Action Girl: Brienne, Aayla Secura, Arya Stark, Liandra.
  • Affably Evil: Baron Harkonnen, the Master.
  • AI Is A Crap Shoot: Victor Mancha, whom Ultron built to be an ultimate villain, and who rejects this role and stays on the side of good instead (not counting alternate timeline hijinks). Just par for the course for Ultron...
  • A Little Something We Call "Rock and Roll": It's not a trope that gets played with much these days, but having a character discover modern music can be entertaining.
  • All Amazons Want Hercules: Brienne, much to the chagrin of her player.
  • All Gays Are Promiscuous: Subverted; quite a lot of gay/bisexual men are in a committed relationship
    • But then Kuronue and Yukimura prove this trope right.
    • As do the soon-to-be-married Valentine Wolfe and Vladimir Harkonnen.
  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: Considering Lezard's status as a big bad, it's kind of amusing the number of women he has dated.
  • A Man Is Not a Virgin: Subverted. George St. Bartleigh is most likely a virgin-and even if he had sex, he probably wouldn't even be aware of it.
  • Amazon Brigade: One player considers her character roster to consist of this.
  • Anachronism Stew: The whole point, really.
  • And Zoidberg: No one commented on this that this player remembers, but the people Karasu targeted were all close to Kurama (or one degree removed in Kaga's case) ...except Mikami, who just picked the wrong person to squib/lecture.
  • Anything That Moves: Amaranth and Dieter, Admiral Zex, literally. Possibly Kuronue.
  • Applied Phlebotinum: Here referred to as 'chocolate plots', for the first instance when hexed chocolate did things to people like Gender Flip, Baleful Polymorph, etc.
  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: the Sue houses: one for sluts, one for bitches, and one for people that like sparkly things. (Qanonreip doesn't count in this instance as it's for applications that muns drop out on).
  • Ascended Fanboy: Victor Mancha, who was a huge superhero fan before realising he had super powers of his own. (Also subverted by him, in that he was programmed to be a fanboy so that [spoilers].)
  • Ascended Fanon: The term 'sparklepire' is now a canon term, thanks to George.
  • Badass Grandpa: Yoda. Also Mr. Wednesday.
  • Badass Adorable: Arya Stark.
  • Battle Butler: Charles Foster Ofdensen. Skwisgaar frequently even refers to him as Dethklok's butler, despite him actually being their manager, legal counsel, and CFO.
  • Beautiful All Along: Brienne subverts this in canon.
  • Berserk Button: Sage is NOT EVIL!!!
    • The word 'love' to Maia.
    • Don't mention Minnesota around Sweden.
    • Brienne gets this way about rape.
    • There are also some examples among the players.
    • Weasels and ferrets for Bucky.
    • Slavery and mind control for Aayla.
    • Kaga finally triggered his when he was attacked one too many times-he ended up possessed by a mononoke and tried to burn the school.
    • Mess with Igor's pet projects and he may possibly snap.
    • Using "the K word" around the Master.
  • Bestiality Is Depraved: Amaranth.
    Primavera:Oh, you're the girl that fucks centaurs!
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Of all the people in this school that could pose a reasonable threat, who actually tried to destroy the entire school? Kaga.
  • Big Bad: Currently Apos, various ones include Beyond, Voldemort, Karasu and Lezard.
    • The Sorting Hat is viewed by many as one.
  • Black Comedy Rape: Arguing semantics here, but Lezard certainly did not know that one time when he thought he was sleeping with Amaranth, he was actually sleeping with a disguised Turlough.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: Titus Pullo.
  • Brainy Brunette: Hermione
  • Break the Cutie: A came broken and got worse before he got better.
    • Mikami is beginning to go down this path.
    • Arya Stark underwent this during her time at Hogwarts with the appearances and disappearances of dead family and friends.
    • There was a whole arc about breaking Mel Beeby, when Brice went evil. Their reconciliation could be counted as a Crowning Moment of Heartwarming.
    • George St. Bartleigh has joined them: he's been turned into a sparklepire by accident. Although he's a subversion, he had a small Heroic BSOD about becoming one, then bounced back to his cheery if idiotic self.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: Very difficult to do in character, but happens often enough in the narration. Particularly with one player
  • Breath Weapon: Ancalagon and Smaug are the most obvious examples, being fire-breathing dragons. Níðhögg breathes a variety of extremely corrosive/flammable acid.
  • But Not Too Foreign: Ofdensen is half-American, three-eighths German, and one eighth Danish. Which is just enough Danish to piss off Skwisgaar, and probably enough German to be accused of being a Nazi.
  • Bullying a Dragon: Toki Wartooth is a perfect example, given his tendency to go homicidal and murder people with his bare hands (and head!) after they push him too far.
  • Butt Monkey: Dwight, Turlough, Lezard
  • By the Eyes of the Blind: Only people with some spiritual sensitivity can see Amaterasu's crimson markings.
  • Canon Discontinuity: For the purposes of the RPG, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows never happened. Done because the RPG was created in between Half Blood Prince and Deathly Hallows's release.
  • Cape Wings: Alucard Tepes.
  • The Casanova: Yukimura, Dieter, James Bond. Kuronue likes to think he's one. And Jack Harkness has re-joined the fray.
  • Catgirl: Turlough's been turned into one twice. Much to his ire particularly since there's a spot that's...sensitive.
  • Cats Are Mean: Bucky, occasionally The Cheshire Cat.
    • But wholly averted with the various feline pets and Wishbone when he transfigures himself into a cat.
  • Cheerful Child: Pippi and Coraline.
    • Rose Casson has her moments, but she seems to subvert the trope as often as play it straight.
  • Cloudcookoolander: Shoggies, Shoggies, Shoggies
    • Elric, too. Come to think of it, they are played by the same mun as above. Anyone else sensing a pattern?
    • And Jherek. Definite pattern!
    • Amaterasu to some degree, who tends to act more like a friendly, goofy wolf than the goddess she is.
  • Comedic Sociopathy: All members of Dethklok embrace and exemplify this.
  • Cooking Duel: With Chairman Kaga as a student, this was nothing but inevitable.
  • Cool and Unusual Punishment: The Harmony Hut. (Specifically, being locked in there, bound to a chair 'A Clockwork Orange' style, and forced to watch cutesy Saturday Morning cartoons.
  • Cooldown Hug: Kuronue tries this on Kaga when the latter tries to destroy Hogwarts, but it fails.
  • Couldn't Find a Pen: When Ofdensen returned to Hogwarts after being savagely beaten by the Metal Masked Assassin, he wrote ‘assassin’ in his own blood on the floor of the popcorn room.
  • Creepy Twins: Sage and Rat
  • Crossover: See Crack Pairing.
  • Cue the Sun: Amaterasu can and has done this at will. She is the sun god after all.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Many of the characters, all from their previous canons
    • China Sorrows for her stint with being on Malevolent's side, during the war. She soon turned sides, joined good, and later became "neutral".
  • Deadpan Snarker: Many. They're popular characters.
  • Death Glare: Happens fairly often and from many characters, but poor Sweden has it on permanently (which isn't how he acts at all)
  • Defeat Equals Friendship: The two Georges.
  • Defiled Forever: Kaga and A both subvert this trope, as they both know life can go on afterwards. Though they both still had intimacy issues.
  • Depraved Homosexual: Harkonnen.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Kaga, after being attacked by Apos (just the latest in attacks and near attacks he's suffered). He got influenced by a Mononoke and tried to burn the school down.
  • Dhampyr: Alucard Tepes.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Suggest that Chairman Kaga works at Benihana's and trees get destroyed. And the only reason you aren't is Kaga doesn't want detention.
  • Dissonant Serenity: When Kaga snapped and tried to burn the school down, he was pretty calm about it until Kusuriyuri attacked him.
  • Distaff Counterpart: Turlough considers Amy to be his.
  • Distressed Damsel: Parodied. If Beowulf is to be believed, Mikami is this.
    • Played straight when the Sorting Hat's wife was kidnapped.
  • Dragon Rider: Elric is this in his canon, and is set to be one in HH whenever Smaug deigns to bear a rider.
  • Dumb Blonde: Amaranth subverts this, as she's rather smart.
  • Dying Dream: Ofdensen believed Hogwarts was this, until he found himself back in his own world, thanks to something weird involving the Shoggies
  • Elaborate University High: Where else would you find a bar in a common room? There also seem to be no penalties for not attending classes.
  • Everyone Is Bi: Until proven otherwise. :P
  • Cute Kitten: Mikami, A, Kusuriyuri, Kurama, River and Lola all have cats. Related: Brice got a puppy solely because of the cuteness.
    • Oly subverted this trope when she asked Lezard to grow her a sentient, free-floating eye in a jar. So not cute.
    • Further subverted by Jasper, who has a pet dinosaur.
    • And again with Coraline, who has a pet Acromantula. Which may be a double subversion or something, since Berry's quite cute for a baby giant spider.
    • Played straight with Wishbone. While the first time was an accident, sometimes he turns himself into a cat because it's easier to get affected by catnip and because things feel softer.
    • Subverted with Bucky Katt. Oh god, subverted.
  • Facial Markings: Amaterasu, Kusuriyuri.
  • Fairy Companion: Issun, to Amaterasu.
  • Fake Memories: Taken to the extreme when a 'sixteen-year-old' Victor Mancha found out he's actually a cyborg built just a few years ago, and that his entire life up till then was one big fabricated memory.
  • Fallen Angel: Brice. But he climbed back up again.
    • Liandra.
  • Feminine Women Can Cook: Considering that the most accomplished cooks at H_H are men, this trope is heavily subverted.
  • Fertile Feet: Amaterasu.
  • Flame War: Ryuk is fond of those.
  • Foe Yay: Turlough and Lezard, mainly, but now that there's two Doctors and a Master here, the Foe Yay has been increased exponentially
  • Forgot I Could Fly: Ryuk forgot he couldn't when he was a human.
  • Freaky Friday: Often happens at least once per chocolate plot
  • Free-Love Future: Jherek Carnelian is from one of these.
  • Friend to All Living Things: Amaterasu, for obvious reasons.
  • Funny Animal: Wishbone, a talking, reading dog (that sometimes turns into a cat)
  • Gender Bender: Frequently pops up in chocolate plots
  • Genius Ditz: The members of Dethklok are completely incompetent at anything not related to music, partying, or contract negotiation (which, in canon, they can out-negotiate the devil on).
  • Genki Girl: Megan pretty much sums this one up. Mel Beeby was one when she first turned up.
  • Gentle Giant: Hagrid, Sweden
  • Gods Need Prayer Badly: Amaterasu, Mr. Wednesday.
  • Granola Girl: Amaranth
  • Gratuitous Foreign Language: Skwisgaar's Swedish, Toki's Norwegian. (Neither have their own trope, so it goes here.)
    • Sweden's HogwartsNet handle is just 'Sweden' in Swedish.
  • Gratuitous German: From Dieter.
    • Ofdensen's now Brother Chucked pet ravens are another example.
    • Austria's HogwartsNet handle is just 'Austria' in German, the predominant language in Austria.
  • Gratuitous Japanese: Also justified, used by many Japanese people
  • Hammerspace: Amaranth uses this often. Megan can sort of use this to get her Souldagger, though it's less "hammerspace" and more "a cold void where her soul used to be." (Semantics, really.)
  • Handsome Lech: Lezard
  • Hates Being Touched: Happened to Kaga for about a year after Karasu raped him.
  • He Who Must Not Be Seen (also He Who Must Not Be Heard): Kojiro, who only appears infrequently and usually only through letter.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: A sane Beyond sacrifices himself to unpop Matt.
  • Ho Yay: All. The freaking. TIME.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Oly/Beowulf.
  • Human Aliens: Turlough
  • I Am Not Shazam: Mikami has yet to persuade Beowulf that his name isn't 'Sack Joe'.
  • Identical Stranger: Sometimes, muns will pick the same PBs. Sometimes the characters end up facing their mirror image and becoming very confused.
    • Alan Grant and Sidney Reilly are trying to avoid Damien Thorn, their decidedly evil twin.
    • Castiza was extremely confused when she met the Ninth Doctor.
  • If It's You, It's Okay: That sums up Nathan's feelings for Ofdensen nicely.
  • I Hate You, Vampire Dad: Alucard Tepes, who is—you guessed it—the biological son of Dracula. Needless to say, they have a very complicated relationship.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: The shoggies
  • Improbable Weapon User: Amaterasu, what with her main physical weapons being a huge flaming mirror and holy beads.
  • I Need a Freaking Drink: Many characters
  • Instant Awesome, Just Add Dragons: Arguably all of HH's dragons (Smaug, Ancalagon, Níðhögg), as they tend to keep to themselves and out of the proverbial spotlight, but it's still awesome to have sentient dragons at Hogwarts. Lurking.
    • Ofdensen totally believes in this trope. He just won't admit it.
  • Involuntary Shapeshifting: Another possible outcome of a chocolate plot.
  • In the Blood: Miranda, who inherited a tail and, apparently show-business abilities from her real family.
  • Informed Ability: Usually done by the muns if there a canon ability that might come across as godmoddy if the other player isn't familiar with the canon.
    • Ryuk and Mikami can know a person's name and lifespan (if the person isn't already dead) just by looking at them, thanks to having shinigami eyes.
    • Austria and Sweden can tell a person's nationality just by looking at them (it's been likened to being like hair color for them, really obvious). It's currently unknown if Finland has the same ability.
    • Amaranth has a similar ability, except of knowing a person's nationality, she knows a person's sexual kinks.
  • Instrument of Murder: Skwisgaar is capable of literally killing people with his guitar in canon without damaging it at all; at Hogwarts, he unknowingly stopped Jasper from eating him by accidentally smacking the vampire with his guitar. (Virtually indestructible sparklepire vs. mysteriously waterproof, indestructible guitar? The guitar actually won.)
  • Intellectual Animal: Amaterasu. Really a deity, merely in the form of a white wolf.
  • It Is Pronounced Tro PAY: Ryuk calls Teatime out on this.
  • Jerkass: Lezard, Turlough, Alan Grant, Rat, Steff, Liandra, Bucky.
  • Kick the Dog: Both figuratively, any time A is targeted, and literally, when Wishbone is targeted.
    • Valentine's torturing of house elves.
  • Kid with the Leash: Alucard and Joachim, in a weird way. Became literal when the now sadly popcorned Ryuuji and Terry gave Alucard some kinky collar and leash gear to use on Joachim, who never quite understood their humour.
  • King of All Cosmos: Amaterasu. Once upon a time we did have the Trope Namer, too.
  • Knight Templar: Dwight thinks he is this.
  • Know-Nothing Know-It-All: So very much Bucky.
  • Large Ham: Beowulf
  • Last Name Basis: Turlough, Ofdensen, Chairman Kaga, Hagrid
  • Les Yay: Does not happen that often, simply because there aren't as many females as there are males. But, Turlough (who had been turned into a catgirl) and Kuronue (who had just been genderswapped) did have a sex scene together as girls.
  • Lighter and Softer: One player described the Harmony Hut as a fluffier version of the Clockwork Orange punishment.
  • Likes Older Women: Beowulf with his loudly-proclaimed MILF preference, Skwisgaar with his MILF and especially GMILF preference.
  • Living Statue: Amaterasu.
  • Liz Lemon Job: Almost literally Charles Ofdensen's job description.
  • Loads and Loads of Characters
  • Local Hangout: Several, namely the Ravenclaw and Slytherin bars, the Great Hall.
  • Looks Like Cesare: Severus Snape
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: Mr. Wednesday is Skwisgaar's father. So far, only he knows this.
  • Made of Explodium: Karasu. He can also force others into this trope (ex: Kaga)
  • Mama Bear: Oly has occasionally acted like this in canon.
  • Man, I Feel Like a Woman : Common in chocolate plots. Especially if you're Kuronue.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Lezard
  • Marshmallow Hell: Igor, talking to Amaranth
  • Mayfly-December Romance: Methos and Brienne are headed in that direction.
  • Mind Screw: Mikami is a frequent victim of this, namely from Karasu. Sage (literally), Rat.
  • Mistaken for Gay: In an odd twist on this trope, Michael Scott mistakes himself for gay. It Makes Sense in Context.
  • Mistaken Identity: Often happens when a character from one canon resembles a character from another canon, due to having the same PB.
  • Mr. Seahorse: Kuronue worried about this after a short gender-bending episode with Akabane.
    • Unwritten rule at the RPG is 'no baby plots'. Sorta-kinda-taking in another character, that's fine, but no baby/pregnancy plots.
  • Mood-Swinger: Kurama runs the gamut from Jerkass to wide-eyed nature enthusiast to Snark Knight to insecure woobie.
  • My Girl Is a Slut: Amaranth
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Kaga, after he realized he nearly destroyed the school and attacked his friends while influenced by a mononoke.
  • Near-Rape Experience: Beyond tried to rape Matt, but L intervened.
  • Neat Freak: Austria. He swallows rather than spits cause he wishes to avoid a mess.
  • Nice Hat: Various hats worn by students, according to the Sorting Hat.
    • There's a semi-canon fic of the Sorting Hat molesting Kuronue's hat.
  • The Nicknamer: Issun rarely calls anyone by their proper name.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: Miranda Barker could be considered one of these considering her fascination with the warped, diseased, or dead human form.
  • Older than They Look: All the countries, who despite being hundreds of years old (Austria is confirmed to be 1033) look no older than thirty.
    • All the Tolkien Elves (Elrond, Glorfindel, Legolas).
    • All the sparklepires (Jasper, Edward, Alice) except George, who only recently became a sparklepire (and remember, he came from World War I).
    • The Castlevania crew too: Joachim (vampire) and Alucard (dhampyr).
    • Liandra.
    • Most demons (Kusuriyuri, Kurama, Karasu, Kuronue.)
    • Vishous
    • China Sorrows: been around for near a century, or so, but only looks mid-late twenties.
    • Rory is a borderline case-he has the memories of his Auton duplicate, who guarded the Pandorica for almost two thousand years, yet he is still flesh and bone. (This makes him mentally about twice as old as the Doctor, who obviously also falls under this trope...)
    • Susan Foreman not only falls under this trope herself as a Time Lady/Gallifreyan, but makes it much more apparent in the Doctor's case, as she continually refers to him as Grandfather.
  • Omniglot: Many of the Wammy detectives. Mello in particular; he learned more archaic languages and just adapted to whatever country he happens to be in. Averted with Matt, who only knows three languages, and one of them is fictional.
    • Ofdensen speaks German and English fluently, and has picked up some Swedish and Norwegian.
    • Kaga knows English, French and Japanese, though he usually only speaks Japanese.
    • In canon, Turlough could understand any language, thanks to the TARDIS. Whether this applies here is up for debate.
    • Mr. Wednesday.
    • Liandra, thanks to hanging around humanity for their entire existence.
    • Aoi.
  • One Steve Limit: Played straight in that there cannot be multiple versions of the same character (ex: both the Kingdom Hearts and the Ansem Retort versions of Axel), but averted in that there can be multiple characters with the same name (there have been at least two different Deaths at the same time)
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Near, Mello, A. Only a few know their real names.
    • L is known to most everyone as 'Ryuzaki'.
    • Matt is a subversion, as Matthew is his middle name.
    • China Sorrows and Mr. Bliss as they are their taken names in canon, by extension, their "nicknames".
    • Sage and Rat
  • Only One Name: Far too many to actually name them all.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: Tolkien's Smaug subverted the Western Dragon trope by being intelligent, magical, and capable of speech, trendsetter that he is. Ancalagon is another example, though he'd sooner eat you than enjoy a good riddle-game with you.
  • Our Monsters Are Different: With so many different fandoms in one place, they are bound to be.
    • Angels. There are those that have been humans, and there are those that have been around since the beginning of time.
    • Demons.
    • Vampires. Some sparkle, some have bumpy faces.
    • Shoggies... Just... shoggies.
    • Dwarves. Oly was a genetically engineered freak.
  • Our Werewolves Are Different: Skwisgaar has been permanently afflicted with a condition that turns him into a merman every now and then, without the aid of hexed food or drink, making him something like a weremerman.
  • Papa Wolf: What Charles Ofdensen is to Dethklok (sans Nathan), generally without them even being aware of it. Although Skwisgaar has admitted that he pretty much considers Ofdensen the father he never had, much to his manager's confusion. (Skwisgaar was also kind of high at the time, and may deny saying it if ever asked about it, but he meant it.)
  • Perky Goth: Nemi. Sometimes. But she's definitely known for her Deadpan Snarkiness as well, so she is a mix between Perky Goth and The Daria. Sage, half the time.
  • Perspective Flip: Arguably, this happened every scene, due to two or more people playing two or more different characters in the same scene.
  • Pet the Dog: Lezard, regarding chinchillas.
  • Physical God: Lezard. Turlough is not impressed.
    • Wednesday is also a god, though he is more subtle about it.
    • Michael is, if not exactly a god, then at least pretty damn close. He has plenty of power due to being an Archangel, but he doesn't like to brag.
    • Ryuk is a god of death. He mostly uses that to gloat about how he can't be hurt by humans.
    • Amaterasu is perhaps the most obvious example, being the primary Shinto deity.
    • Skwisgaar now believes he is a god. In HH canon, he is the son of Wednesday, though he doesn't know that.
    • Apos believes he's a god purely because he's a hermaphrodite, and in his canon (Daughters Of Mnemosyne) gives him the capabilities of both an Angel (male-exclusive) and Immortal (female-exclusive).
  • Professional Butt-Kisser: Dwight
  • Psychic Powers: Something like this tends to happen when turned into a sparklepire: Jasper has emphatic powers, and George has psychometry.
    • Vishous can see the future and hear thoughts.
    • Sage and Rat are made of this. Well, this and goth steriotypes and martial arts.
  • Put on a Bus: Referred to as 'Popcorning' here, when a character gets dropped.
  • Rape as Backstory: Brienne
  • Rape as Drama: played straight many times, the notable ones being Beyond raping A (and makes an attempt on Matt) and Karasu raping Chairman Kaga
  • Rape Is Love: Near and Mello's first time happened under rather dubious circumstances. They are now one of the OT Ps of the RPG.
    • And now Nny/Teatime. As one of the muns put it "Consensual, but iffy".
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Sweden is actually more of a housewife then some of the women here. (He is quite fond of sewing)
    • Zex thinks his prefect's hat (a pink bow) makes him look quite the stud.
  • Real Person Fic: Technically against the rules to play someone who actually lived, unless it can be sufficiently proven that the canon's version of that person is different enough from the real life person. Example: Sanada Yukimura of Samurai Deeper Kyo, a more supernatural version of the real Sanada Yukimura, and Andrew Jackson of Ansem Retort, a very exaggerated Memetic Badass disembodied head version of the real Andrew Jackson.
  • Reality Warper: Amaterasu, courtesy of her being a deity and using her Celestial Brush.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Methos comes to mind as the most obvious example, but there are several others.
    • Austria, who is confirmed in canon to be over a millenium old. Presumably, Sweden as well, though they don't have confirmed birth years yet.
    • Elrond and Glorfindel, being over 6,000 years old (and Glorfindel possibly over 10,000) are prime candidates; Legolas has been presumed to be around a respectable 500-2,000 years old.
    • Vincent Valentine to a smaller extent.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Mikami still has their shinigami eyes. Ancalagon and Smaug both have glowing red eyes, and looking directly into them results in dragon-spell mind control. Fun!
    • Kuronue, if he's really angry.
    • Somewhat subverted with Vincent Valentine, who has red eyes when himself, yellow when one of his demons take over.
  • Reptiles Are Abhorrent: Ancalagon and Smaug. The Jurassic Park raptor, who's shared some downright adorable interaction with Jasper and Toki, may be an exception.
  • Reset Button: As equally often as not, unpopping serves as this.
  • Ridiculously Human Robots: Victor Mancha, who looks and acts so much like a normal teenager that he himself didn't know he was a robot for years.
  • Rousing Speech: Damien's speech at the prefect debate.
  • Running Gag: Dogs and Ofdensen do not mix well.
  • Scary Librarian: Averted with Michael, who is more likely to force pastries down your mouth than yell at you for talking too loudly.
  • She Is Not My Girlfriend: Turlough does this to Hagrid after their shotgun wedding, though at least that one's justified.
  • Shinigami: Ryuk
  • Shotgun Wedding: The Sorting Hat officiated over one when he mistakenly believed the bride was pregnant, then he went crazy and married off half the school. Recently, he forced Turlough and Hagrid to marry, mainly to see if they try to kill each other. (They have since divorced due to conflicting feelings on Turlough's part over the Doctor)
  • Sliding Scale of Silliness Versus Seriousness: To go into detail would be too much trouble.
    • But to give some sort of example, one post can have a T-Rex and a cat planning a scheme involving monkeys, and the next can involve sexual assault.
  • Smug Snake: Lezard
  • Spit Take: Kaga, once when Yukimura revealed he was wearing a schoolgirl’s uniform
  • Stockholm Syndrome: L believes Near's feelings for Mello are a result of this.
  • Stoic Spectacles: Austria (mostly), Sweden, Ofdensen
  • Strawman Political: Bucky
  • Suspiciously Specific Denial: Wishbone is fond of making these, namely when he’s caught in the act.
    Wishbone: "NO, I WASN'T ABOUT TO STEAL THAT HAM!"
  • Talking Animal: Wishbone, again.
    • Bucky, much to everyone's consternation.
    • Scar.
    • The Cheshire Cat.
  • Teacher/Student Romance: Easily half the staff body has slept with at least one of the students.
    • Grant/Laura is a bit more of a straight example.
    • Subverted with Kusuriyuri and Kurama, who are both staff members.
    • Parodied (kinda) with Turlough/Hagrid, who were forced to marry each other. (Turlough used to stay with him because he isn't that bad a husband, and is more miffed about being forced into a marriage with an Earthling. They have since divorced over Turlough's conflicted feelings for the Doctor.)
    • Ofdensen/Nathan, though they got together long before Ofdensen took a professorship
  • Teen Genius: Every Teen Genius from Death Note has made at least one appearance. Even Amaranth would qualify, not that you'd notice.
    • Victor Mancha.
  • The Ditz: Toki Wartooth, Beowulf, Sage. Amaranth has her moments.
  • The Obi-Wan: Kurama and Kusuriyuri, both to A.
    • Mello to Kaga. Kinda
  • The Pawn: Megan, in Laura de Winter's scheme to get dirt on Brice.
    • Various people to Apos
  • The Starscream: We have the originator of this trope himself, Starscream.
  • The Stoic: Charles Ofdensen.
  • The Unintelligible: Sweden. The mun has had to translate what he's said sometimes.
  • There Are No Therapists: Anyone with any sort of psychological problem has to rely on friends for mental help. If he has any.
  • Theme Naming: A named his cats and his squirrel after scientists.
    • Lezard's chinchillas. So far we have Juan and Exxon Valdez, and their cousin Juan Pollo.
    • Nine of Sweden's straw goats are named for Swedish Formula One drivers. Then, because he ran out of those, the last ones were named for Finnish F1 drivers.
  • Too Dumb to Live: George St. Bartleigh
    • Which has reached it's logical conclusion: George didn't even realize that he was being bitten by Jasper. As of now, he's turned into a sparklepire.
  • Too Kinky to Torture: Apos. Kurama has found a way round this, though... forcing him to watch nonthreatening children's programming. For a very long time. See Cool and Unusual Punishment.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Mello's is chocolate, L's is sugar, Ryuk's is apples.
  • Translation Convention: Canonically done by the magic of Hogwarts, done for the convenience of the players. Subverted a couple times, namely when two people speak a language a third doesn't, in the hopes that the third doesn't understand.
  • True Companions:
    • The group of people that banded together to stop Karasu, and now Apos.
    • Dethklok, in a really messed up way.
  • Truth Serum: Potion. Close enough. The alphabet detectives have experimented some with it, and Ofdensen slipped Toki truth-potion laced vodka to find out the truth about his and Skwisgaar's relationship. The Master also ate some truth-inducing chocolates while in the compy lab, causing him to troll the whole school, completely blowing his attempts at being incognito.
  • Tsundere: Turlough. And how!
  • Unresolved Sexual Tension: All the freaking time.
  • Vampires Are Sex Gods: Totally subverted with both Edward and George.
  • Villain Forgot to Level Grind: Kurama taunts Karasu about this - not so much 'forgot to' as 'didn't get the chance owing to being dead', but the trope still applies.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Alucard Tepes (wolf/warg, bat, mist, etc.) and Joachim (wolf/warg and bat).
    • Kurama (can take fox form at will).
  • Waif-Fu: Rat, Arya, River
  • Webcomic Time: While over a year passed for the members of Dethklok when they went through the Shoggies' portal, only moments passed at Hogwarts.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: Yukimura. Steff has her moments as well.
  • Will They or Won't They?: Methos/Brienne (hard to say), Nathan/Ofdensen(they have),
    • Mikami/Yukimura (that one aphrodisiac induced incident doesn't count)
    • Harkonnen/Jasper (they won't)
    • Lezard/Steff (unlikely).
  • Wild Mass Guessing: One player will INSIST that Hogwarts and it's surrounding land is really a TARDIS.
  • Worthy Opponent: Yukimura, Mello, and Kurama, in pretty much all combinations you can make of the three.
  • Younger than They Look: Turlough is only in his mid-twenties, but the players think he looks mid-thirties. The fact that he acts like a curmudgeon does not help.
    • Victor Mancha, who's a cyborg implanted with false memories. He was built as a teenager, so he's approximately 15 years younger than he looks.
  • Your Mom: Rat bet that four times in the prefect betting pool. He ended up winning all four back.
