YMMV: Darwin's Soldiers
- Angst? What Angst? - Zachary gives Shelton a very brief answer to his Stockholm Syndrome issues in the third RP.
Shelton: Damn it, he was right. I betrayed them, I never thought of it as betrayal, but I did. And now a bunch of them just died for me. I know they're the enemy, but they trusted me!Zachary: Fuck them!Shelton: ...That's probably the best answer anyone could've given.
- Badass Decay - Meta example. Dr. Keith Bailey from the rebooted Furtopia RP was just as capable with a firearm as any other character. In the Gang of Five RPs, he is pretty much incapable of fighting.
- Big Lipped Alligator Moment - As Drs. Shelton and Zanasiu run away from the exploding Einstein-Rosen Bridge at the end of the first RP, a winged fox swoops down from the sky and flies them to safety. This moment is never spoken of again.
- Creator's Pet - Dragore from the Furtopia RPs fits this trope perfectly. A Mary Sue and a scrappy with a big role, adored by the creator and steals the spotlight.
- Lupis from the rebooted Furtopia RP is even worse. He literally hijacks the entire story and the plot shifts from a focus on the terrorists to the rogue scientists, who were originally in the background.
- Critical Research Failure - Turning a wardrobe into antimatter would not result in it disintegrating. It would result in a massive explosion as the antiparticles of the wardrobe and the atoms of the air around it annihilate each other in a burst of gamma rays.
- Crowning Moment of Awesome - At least one per story/RP.
- Crowning Music of Awesome - None in the fic but several moments demand that you open up YouTube and blast Primo Victoria, Preliator, Schwarze Sonne or Danger Zone at full volume.
- Ethnic Scrappy - The Vulpine. Full stop. The fans loathe the fact that their portrayal draws cues from every stereotypical portrayal of alcoholic savage Indians.
- Evil Is Sexy - Subject 19 anyone? Well, the girl practically wears revealing clothes.
- Roux, the female Wolf dresses in extremely revealing clothing (namely a pair of nearly see-through thong panties and that is it).
- Genius Bonus - there are some references that make little to no sense unless one has an understanding of science.
- Growing the Beard - Shelton in the third RP, literally and figuratively.
- God-Mode Sue - Dragore from the Furtopia RPs is ludicrously powerful. Several times, he effortlessly slaughters a group of armed terrorists in mere seconds. Oh, by the way, Dragore is six years old!
- Ho Yay - During Lab 101's escape, Shelton and Kerzach squeeze into a single bathroom stall and cut their way through to the adjacent maintenance rooms. When it's time to leave back through the bathroom, there are people waiting for the bathroom.
Shelton: "What exactly are we going to tell them if they ask why both of us were in the bathroom for so long? I mean, I'm all for the new identity, but I doubt they'll believe we were so inspired by the Exodus that we declared our love for each other."
- Roux and Aisha are a couple.
- Holy Shit Quotient - Quite high. Some parts of the RPs and stories get absolutely crazy.
- Moral Event Horizon - In James' mind, Siberys crossed it in Card of Ten when threatening a child's life to force the king to commit suicide.
- Take That, Scrappy! - In Ground One Dragore (see below) gets a particularly horrendous Fate Worse Than Death: eaten alive by carnivorous atmosphere but prevented from dying by his nanobots. The endless pain drives him insane.
- The Scrappy - Dragore from the Furtopia RPs is utterly loathed by the majority of the players. His constant wangsting is annoying enough but the fact that he's a God-Mode Sue cements his Scrappy status.
- Aydin from Disruptive Selection is a close contender for the "coveted" title of most "hated character". Being a relatively flat character who shares his creator's views and being a member of a thinly veiled unflattering depiction of modern day Native Americans will do that.
- Lupis from the rebooted Furtopia RP is the same a Dragore but the negative traits were ramped Up to Eleven.
Spc. Crota: What, you want her? We can share; he said multiple partners.
- Where Shelton gets the implantable chips. he removes them from through the noses of his dead teammates.
- And Dr. Landon's sarcastic comment about the in-universe movie of the first RP:
- An implied Three-way between Spc. Crota, Zachary and Roux.
- Strangled by the Red String - Of the four relationships consummated in the Culeston hotel, only Shelton/Shakila had any sort of foreshadowingnote .
- Wangst - Dragore from the Furtopia RPs constantly complains about being unloved.
