Tropes in this work:
- Back from the Dead: Apparently happened to Frankie Mashuga, since he is a zombie in Chapter 5.
- Foil: Don and Allegra. Kevin and Allegra.
- Fun T-Shirt: "What the Duck", worn by Allegra in Chapter 3.
- German Dialects: Klara Vonderstein tends to use German words from time to time.
- Hidden Villain: We all know Malcolm Landgraab IV is one of the villains, but what exactly caused Bella's first disappearance is still unknown.
- I Just Want to Be Special: Allegra does anything to get attention, like entering through Don's balcony instead of simply knocking on the door.
- Love Triangle: Nothing yet, but it's implied that one will start between Cassandra/Darren/Allegra or Darren/Allegra/Don.
- Must Have Caffeine: Klara is addicted to espresso.
- Polar Opposite Twins: Chloe and Lola.
- Police Are Useless: Deputy Duncan, although the trope is inverted with Jessie Pilferson. It's also hinted that Kevin Beare thinks Allegra's thoughts about the case might be worth looking into.
- Screw the Rules, I'm Doing What's Right: Allegra when she steals important evidence for the Bella investigation from Kevin's office, and breaks into Don's apartment.
- The Woobie: Dina. Poor, poor Dina.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Grilled cheese sandwiches for Allegra, espresso for Klara.
- What Could Have Been: Word of God states that from the beginning, Goopy Gilscarbo was supposed to be the main character instead of Allegra and Dina would be evil.
