* CrackPairing: Matt/Naomi, Mikami/[[CanonForeigner Shiori]], [[spoiler: L/Gevanni, Mikami/Naomi, hints of Ryuk/L]].
* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: For some readers. Granted, this fanfic ''is'' based on Death Note and is supposed to be satirical, but even so it's difficult at times to care about the characters when they're not only mostly sleazy politicians, but exhibit few redeeming qualities and seem increasingly bent on making their lives and each other's miserable.
* JerkassWoobie: ''Both'' Light and L.
* RonTheDeathEater: Matt is a womanizing douchebag that makes [[DracoInLeatherPants Light's]] JerkAss tendencies look nice in comparison. Later in the story [[TookALevelInJerkass L]] [[spoiler: physically abuses and rapes Light. Also, in this 'verse he's the one writing in Ryuk's notebook to further Light's career by killing off threats or competition, including his own boyfriend Stephen.]]
* TrueArtIsIncomprehensible: "I'm left alone staring at something stupid. The money flower. What the hell is that supposed to mean? I want one."
* TrueArtIsAngsty: One of the most highly regarded fan works within the fandom, and extremely harrowing in parts.
* {{Wimpification}}: Subverted. [[spoiler: Light and L are ''both'' [[{{Yandere}} crazy, possessive]], [[AxeCrazy vicious]] and [[ManipulativeBastard manipulative.]]]]
* TheWoobie: Naomi.
