As a whole
- Armor Is Useless: Averted. Higher-ranking agents ("Nightwings") wear armor plates and helmets as both a symbol of their status and to protect them from being one-hit-killed by backstabs or bullet wounds.
- Black Cloak: Standard uniform for lower-ranking agents on vigilante duty.
- In the Hood: Said cloak also includes one that makes for an easy and effective disguise.
- Canis Latinicus: Several of their code phrases and their leader's oath are written in Latin.
- Child Soldiers: Agents begin training at the age of 10, but are not allowed to go on unsupervised missions until their 18th birthday.
- Dark Is Not Evil: Despite their cult-like behavior and night motif, they're the only ones protecting the world from Sunfire Laboratories' wrath.
- Easy Amnesia: They have a memory-erasing machine they use to convert criminals into good guys or remove PTSD-inducing flashbacks.
- Fantastic Slur / Nicknaming the Enemy: They call Sunfire Laboratories agents "burnouts".
- Five-Man Band
- Heroes R Us
- Knight Templar / Pay Evil unto Evil: To an extent. While on the "heroic" side, they are not above using violent force against criminals or Sunfire Laboratories agents...or brainwashing said criminals into working for them instead.
- Mama Bear / Papa Wolf / Knight Templar Parent: They are very protective of their little ones.
- The Sacred Darkness
- Thou Shalt Not Kill: Lethal force is forbidden except against A-class criminals, deemed too dangerous to be safely contained.
- True Companions: "Team Duskbreak is family. We are many, we are one."

- We Used to Be Friends: They and Sunfire Laboratories were once one organization, the Vanguards of Twilight.
- You Are Number Six: Everyone has a three-digit ID number they use as secondary identification if necessary.

- Healing Factor: Her trademark moves are Wish, Softboiled and Heal Bell.
- Mama Bear: She's at her fiercest when defending the nursery.
- Non-Elemental: A Normal-type. However, this actually works to her advantage as she can learn a variety of attacks as opposed to just one.
- Parental Substitute: Most notably for Conway, who had to grow up without his own mother.
- Stone Wall: Her battling style, when she does fight.
- Team Mom: Applies a motherly attitude to her teammates and the children she cares for as well as her own daughter.
As a whole
- A Nazi by Any Other Name
- Asskicking Equals Authority: Agents claw their way up through the ranks by defeating their superiors.
- Child Soldiers: Young children are routinely abducted from their parents and raised as mindless drones who know nothing but service to the Social Darwinist creed.
- Cold-Blooded Torture: They prefer the term "cleansing".

- Knight Templar: From their point of view, they're doing the human race a favor by destroying it so none of them will have to suffer ever again.
- Light Is Not Good: You don't say?
- Misanthrope Supreme
- Omnicidal Maniac: Their goal is to wipe the human race off the face of the earth and replace it with a new, genetically engineered race of superhuman beings. Classy.
- Pragmatic Villainy: Agents are discouraged from killing each other, not because it's a bad idea, but because it takes years to train (or brainwash) a suitable replacement.
- Released to Elsewhere: What happens to agents who don't pass their final tests.
- The Social Darwinist: This used to be their goal. Now they think the human race has fallen so far into chaos and disrepair that it can't be reorganized.
- The Spartan Way: In keeping with their "survival of the fittest" policy, agents are punished severely or even executed for showing any sign of weakness. And yes, this includes children.
- We Used to Be Friends: Made up one half of the Vanguards of Twilight along with Team Duskbreak before the schism.
- You Are Number Six
- Axe Crazy: Violent, psychopathic, and dangerous. Very, very dangerous.

old Summer Campy description
Dear Mom and Dad,
I am enjoying my summer
at Camp Ikawikkanukabonka
, but I hate the mosquitos. They chase us everywhere, and they form a cloud that's even bigger than Fat Tommy in the bunk bed over me.''
Actually, he's not over me any more, because his fat butt broke the bed, and it fell on top of mine. It was too heavy to move, so our counselor, Stu Pid
, suggested we all get together to move it. Unfortunately, we couldn't agree on who should hold what end, so we wound up punching and kicking each other and giving up. Stu tried to get us pumped up by making us all sing the Ikawikkanukabonka Happy Happy Fun Song,
but I didn't want to and Jake put his fingers in his ears, and Stu said that if we didn't have camp spirit, no wonder we couldn't even lift a stupid bunk bed.
Then Stu said that since he were now one bed short, somebody would have to sleep on the floor, so he suggested that we vote on who that would be.
We all voted for him, and then he got so angry at us for some reason. I pointed out that it made sense for him to give his bed up, since he's bigger than us and two campers can fit in his bed as long as Fat Tommy isn't one of them. Somehow he didn't understand this and said we were so impossible that we weren't going out for sports today. I'm not sure if this was a punishment, because it's been raining so hard this week that we haven't been able to go out anyway.
We're all getting a little tense, having to stay in a small cabin while it's raining out. Jake's been trying to give me wedgies, and when I asked why, he said "dude, I'm bored." So I stole his PSP, and then he tried to set my backpack on fire with the matches he'd hidden away, and then somebody threw a ball at him and it broke the window.
Then the mosquitos came flying through the window — in the rain
— and we haven't been able to sleep since because everybody's scratching so loudly. Nobody's been able to go the bathroom either, because it's an outhouse on the other side of camp and we can't walk through the rain to get there.
If I'd had bug spray we could have stopped them, but I'd lost it when we joined the girl's camp at volleyball last week. Sarah's a dumb girl
, but I really wanted to talk to her (and she's not cute and don't tell anybody I think she is
), and she suggested we take a walk in the woods. Then she said to close my eyes and I'd get a big surprise, so I did.
I waited and waited, and when I opened my eyes she was gone, and so was my backpack with the bug spray and everything else I brought with me. Can you send me a care package? I know the big kids stole all the previous ones from the camp mailbox, but maybe this one will get through.
You know, this reminds me of that Dilbert
thing you're always talking about. Or of our trip to Yellowstone
. Maybe I should go to a different camp next year, but Fat Tommy says he's been to weight-loss camp and drama camp and the counselors are pretty much the same
. At least I can laugh at this, unlike my brother. He still hasn't gotten over the place in the woods
he went to.
