* WhatDoesSheSeeInHim: Gender-swapped for Harry and Bella. Virtually everyone-Harry's sisters, Harry's parents, Harry's sister's boyfriend, Bella's parents-wonder what Harry sees in Bella for some time.

* NonIdenticalTwins: Most of the twins born in the story; Charlie and Celestina, Demelza and Draco, Ginny and George, Inigo and Imago. Curiously this obeys biology's rules on fraternal twins. The one pair of twins in the main line who were somewhat identical were Dolores and Druella.

!!The tropes used are:
* AlphabeticalThemeNaming: Duh.
* AlternateContinuity: The "Mama" and "Sleep" songstories, [[WordOfGod apparently.]]
* AngstySurvivingTwin: [[spoiler: Inigo after Imago's death.]]
* AntiLoveSong: Seb and Helena's "I Don't Love You" duet.
* AuthorAvatar: The Simself of the author has made cameos and is shown to be in regular contact with the family; she was even a guest at Gabi's wedding.
* BackFromTheDead: Elladora, as a zombie.
** Draco and Demelza, back to save the Legacy.
* BlindSeer: Cassandra and Imago [[spoiler: (for a time).]]
* BrainyBrunette: Inigo is a male example.
* ClingyJealousGirl: Imago is one of a non-romantic variety. She gets extremely angry when Inigo begins to "drift away" by dating Vanessa and telling her he is/was a Seer.
* DaddysGirl: Faith.
* DeadpanSnarker: A lot of the characters have their snarky moments. Surprisingly Inigo can do it pretty well, often out of nowhere.
* DeathByDespair: Helena. Almost.
* DisappearedDad: After Dolores and Calvin split up, Calvin basically falls off the face of the earth and he and his daughter Elladora haven't spoken since she was a little girl.
* TheDitz: Mimi.
* DreamingOfThingsToCome: Inigo's visions come to him in dreams.
* EarnYourHappyEnding: After a helping of angst and problems and plot, most characters achieve this.
* {{Emo}}: Helena like woah. [[IGotBetter She gets better.]]
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Mimi is by far the most popular Granger, taking precedence over all other heirs, spouses, and spares.
* EyeScream: When Imago [[spoiler: makes the eye trade.]] * shudder*
* ExpositoryHairstyleChange: Helena's hair becomes bedraggled on two occasions when she gets depressed.
* FallingForSomeoneNeverMet: Fred to [[spoiler: Audrey.]]
* FightingYourFriend: Gabi fights Abbey when [[MurderIsTheBestSolution her plot to do away with Gabi's husband]] comes to light.
* FirstKiss: Fred and Audrey had one which was a big deal:
--> '''Audrey:''' "Oh, Fred! Fifty first dates and you never kissed anyone?"
-->'''Fred:''' "I was waiting for you."
** Sometimes the first kiss is a big deal, sometimes not; Inigo and Vanessa's was a whole scene, for example, while the rest of the generation got one picture just to prove it happened.
* GeniusBookClub: Inigo is described as an avid and fast reader of just about anything.
* HappilyAdopted: [[spoiler: Lyla, Isla's adopted daughter.]]
* HappilyMarried: Most couples in the story end up as this.
** [[spoiler: Except Isla and Samuel.]]
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: Imago's almost over the bend in her efforts to be special.
* InterruptedSuicide: Helena tries to jump a balcony, but Mimi and Harry step in.
* ItsNotYouItsMe: Inigo to Vanessa.
* ItAlwaysRainsAtFunerals: [[spoiler: Imago's funeral.]]
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: Inigo realizes that [[spoiler: because he's immortal, he can't be with Vanessa and so breaks up with her, despite her being his first and only love.]]
** [[spoiler: They get back together when Inigo gives up his Seer powers.]]
* LikeFatherLikeSon: Harry takes a lot after his father Almeric.
* LoveAtFirstSight: Fred falls in love with a girl who walks by his house as a kid. It results in a lifelong search for her, despite not even knowing her name. [[spoiler: Eventually he's united with Audrey. Cue happily ever after.]]
** Inigo and Vanessa.
* LoveHurts: Oh, it does.
* ManipulativeBastard: Cassandra.
** Or, alternately, a psychic {{Chessmaster}}.
*** Why not both?
* TheMatchmaker: Abbey tries to be one for her brother and her best friend Gabi. Gabi already has a boyfriend.
* MoodWhiplash: Helena goes from miserably suicidal and broken-hearted to furious to back in love in the space of one evening. [[LoveMakesYouCrazy Love does crazy things to you...]]
** Chapter 42 starts off fairly normally, showing the happy lives of most of the spares, until it snaps to the situation with Imago, who has gone missing and is refusing all contact.
* MyBelovedSmother: In futile efforts to prevent the children three prophecy from occurring, Gabi becomes an insane smother to her children.
* NeverGotToSayGoodbye: Inigo to [[spoiler: Imago.]]
* NeverOneMurder: Daisy kills seven of her nine other siblings.
* NonIdenticalTwins: Most of the twins born in the story; Charlie and Celestina, Demelza and Draco, Ginny and George, Inigo and Imago. Curiously this obeys biology's rules on fraternal twins. The one pair of twins in the main line who were somewhat identical were Dolores and Druella.
* NoodleIncident: {{Lampshaded}}. Apparently Inigo and Imago had one off-screen:
-->'''Inigo:''' "What sort of secret? Is it like that time with the noodles--"
-->'''Imago:''' "No! And you promised we'd never speak of that again!"
* [[spoiler:NoOneCouldHaveSurvivedThat: Some fans are of this opinion with Imago.]]
* PortmanteauCoupleName: Almost every couple featured in the Legacy gets one. Generation I's names for example: Vanigo (Vanessa/Inigo), Ignivy (Ignotus/Ivy), Dougperius (Douglas/Imperius), Isluel (Isla/Samuel, [[spoiler: until they broke up, that is]]), Knoxlynn (Knox/Kaylynn), and Foliver (Faith/Oliver).
* PropheciesAreAlwaysRight: They are.
* ProphecyTwist: Gabi's prophecy had an entirely different interpretation from how she saw it. Her overbearing nature to prevent the prophecy from coming true led to it coming true. [[spoiler: Inigo's last vision, which he interpreted to be a warning that his immortality would interfere with his relationship with Vanessa, it had another meaning, referring to Imago's untimely death.]]
* TheyAllSaidWeNeverCouldBeHappy: Harry and Bella.
* {{Seers}}: Cassandra, Inigo and Imago.
* ShoutOut: The whole story is basically an epic shout out to Harry Potter. But there are several others as well.
* ShrinkingViolet: Eileen.
** Vanessa is a milder version; she's more socially awkward and nerdy while Eileen was a true shrinking violet.
* SingleMindedTwins: Inigo and Imago for some time.
* ThemeTwinNaming: Inigo and Imago's names are taken from one character, Inigo Imago. And of course, all main line twins have alliterative names because, y'know, Alphabetacy.
** Spares who have twins often get hit by this too. Reducto and Reparo are named for spells that are the opposite of each other, with Reducto breaking things and Reparo fixing things. Expecto and Patronum, Avada and Kedavra, and Wingardium and Leviosa are all named for two-word spells.
* TwinBanter: Draco and Demelza in particular do this, and Inigo and Imago did when they got along.
* TwinDesynch: The split between Inigo and Imago is symbolized by Imago dying her hair [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair blue]].
* TwinTelepathy
* WhatDoesSheSeeInHim: Gender-swapped for Harry and Bella. Virtually everyone-Harry's sisters, Harry's parents, Harry's sister's boyfriend, Bella's parents-wonder what Harry sees in Bella for some time.
* WhoWantsToLiveForever: Inigo realizes how much immortality sucks.
** Technically all the spares are left to live on, but it's not the same.
* UntoUsASonAndDaughterAreBorn: Draco and Demelza and Inigo and Imago.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Imago.
