- Awesome Moments: "Oh well, this is a summoning like any other. All you have to do to be free is successfully contest my will. ARE YOU GOING TO GIVE IT A TRY?" Shows what Misho looks like when he's serious.
- This IS Ten's business, little girl.
- Really, any moment where an Exalted shows off their full power. It is a spectacle to behold.
- Ensemble Darkhorse: Technically, Misho is the central protagonist of Keychain. Don't tell that to Secret's fanbase, though.
- Fan-Preferred Couple: Marena/Secret is probably the preferred ship over Misho/Marena.
- Heartwarming Moments: Ten admits that at first he didn't trust Misho and the others, as he had been taught that they were "anathema", or inherently evil. So he joined a team of them, to see for himself what they were like. His verdict?
Ten: I wasn't lying when I said I wanted to know if you... anathema were so bad. And I know that you lot, at least, are not.
- Les Yay: Occurs frequently between Marena and Secret, although it might be more accurate to state that Marena so sexy that anybody and everybody is likely to get shipped with her. This was heavily hinted to be canon. (See Fantastic Arousal.) One Exalted forum had an unofficial poll to decide who Marena should be the Lunar mate of. Secret won.
- Memetic Badass: Ten Winds learned a permanent Charm that lets him deal aggravated damage to anyone less badass than he is. He hasn't inflicted bashing or lethal since.
- Memetic Mutation: DODGE CHARMS.
- Moe: Secret, of course. Blossom is also just adorable. For the female readers, there's Misho.
- Nightmare Fuel: Keychain of Creation, #189. Marena's flashback to Thorns.
- Tear Jerker: Mew Cai's Heroic Sacrifice right here.
- The Scrappy: Everyone hates the Placeholder.
- The Woobie:
- Secret and Misho, mostly, though most everyone gets a turn.
- And poor Blossom. She just wants everyone to get along!
