Tropes appearing in the Visitor
- Aerosol Flamethrower: See The Alcoholic
- The Alcoholic: The old man at the camper table in Returns is so deep in his cups he only reacts to being set on fire with Dull Surprise and smothers the flames on his arm.
- Alien Blood: Averted, the worm has normal, red blood.
- All Webbed Up: Eating a spider allows for this in Returns
- Artistic License - Biology
- Beware My Stinger Tail: Consuming a scorpion gives you a stinger tail.
- Black Eyes of Evil: You get these at the end of the first game.
- Body Horror
- Came From The Sky: You come out of a Meteorite in each Game.
- Canon Discontinuity: Massacre at Camp Happy was so reviled that they made Returns another point-and-click adventure game where you can keep the abilities of the animals you eat as an apology (combining animal traits wasn't present in Massacre because it would have been too easy if you could).
- Cannibalism Superpower:
- technically not cannibalism but eating an animal gives you some of its abilities. Eating a person results in the parasite becoming humanoid.
- In Massacre at Camp Happy, if your monster dies, its corpse becomes a health pickup on your next try.
- Chest Burster
- Cross Over: The parasites are a major antagonist in The Several Journeys of Reemus
- Gameplay and Story Segregation:In Massacre at Camp Happy, the parasite can only attack animals smaller than it is. The object of the game is to eat all the campers, and there's a good chance you'll be significantly smaller than the targeted human of the level.
- Chest Burster: You can erupt out of your first host in Returns.
- Cruel and Unusual Death
- Eyeless Face: You like this for most of the games except the end of the first.
- Mind Over Matter: How can a such a little Worm manipulate its environment from a distance? Telekinesis, of course!
- More Teeth Than The Osmond Family: With Close ups, you can see that the creature has lots of teeth.
- Multiple Endings
- Humans Are Special: The parasite really wants to eat one, but won't go after them without a host of animal-based superpowers and the Golden Ending of Returns is where you do and become humanoid, rather than brutally dismembering one or getting shot to pieces.
- Insectoid Alien: In the beginning of the first game, you start out as a gnat-like creature.
- In Returns, you can become one by killing a scorpion and spider.
- It Can Think: Never mind that the parasite can think. It can also move objects with its mind.
- Orifice Invasion:
- In The Visitor, you kill a troublesome cat by crawling up its anus and eating it from the inside-out. You also kill a man by forcing yourself down his throat. In fact, in its original worm-like parasite form, it's fond of letting itself be eaten by nearby vermin.
- In Returns this is a possible ending; tearing off a woman's jaw and crawling down her throat to anthropomorphosize yourself.
- Smelly Skunk Eating a skunk gives the parasite the ability to spray foul-smelling gas. Said skunk also acts as an obstacle by gassing the parasite whenever it gets close.
- Telepathic Spacemen: While not telepathic, the little worm is telekinetic.
- Things that Go Bump in the Night: The parasite can become a monster under someone's bed.
- To Serve Man: The one ending of the first game results in you eating the survivor. He was cruncy.
- Villain Protagonist: You're a vicious alien parasitoid.
- You Will Be Assimilated
