* AxCrazy Boone, though initially with a machete instead of ax. Numerous other characters have been this as well at one point or another.
* BadAss Just about everyone at one point or another.
* {{Badass Crew}} When a major site-wide crisis is at hand, this usually occurs to sort it out. It's like Ghostbusters only with zombies and automatic weapons.
* BitchInSheepsClothing Quouar
* BloodKnight Boone
* BloodyHillarious Anything written by Boone. Ever.
* BoomHeadshot Captain Dryfter's username is actually "Operation Headshot"
* BoringButPractical Flamethrowers may seem like an excellent, exciting way to take out zombies, but it's a really bad idea. The simple weapons are the best against zombies.
* CrapsackWorld There are zombies. Everywhere.
* CrazyPrepared Nergal Heavy Industries (though that's because they caused it), as well as a fair number of the survivors
* CrystalDragonJesus The Raider Faith. Just substitute God for Boone and Jesus for Kam, make Communion a lot creepier and more blatantly cannibalistic and you're set.
* DeathByMaterialism More a meta-example, but because of Big D's obsession with weaponry, he was driven off the site.
* TheDeterminator Captain Dryfter and Danni
* DiabolicalMastermind Cerberus and Katsuo, though each had an army.
* DieOrFly Danni and her pyrokinesis, Dryfter and his regenerative ability
* {{Dissonant Laughter}}Boone, one of his more infamous traits.
* DoubleEntendre The entirety of some of Kamarov and Boone's less plot relevant threads.
* DownerEnding This is usually true when a main character dies, with a few exceptions. [[spoiler: Big D is a rather notable exception]]
* ElaborateUndergroundBase Just about every survivor group
* EvilDetectingDog Averted. One villain has a dog, and Cerberus is named after a three-headed dog.
* EvilDuo Antistes and Quouar
* ExoticWeaponSupremacy Agatha's inventions are awesome.
* ExploitationFilm Pretty much everything at one point or another. More so anything involving The Remnant, the Raiders, or the Ferals. A lot of the earlier posts play out in this manner.
* FaceHeelTurn Katsuo, and arguably Kamarov
* FireForgedFriends Antistes and Quouar, though I suppose they didn't *have* to work together ever.
* GenreSavvy Most of the survivors survived because they recognised the zombie apocalypse when it started.
* GloriousLeader Rene, and just about everything he did to rebuild as much of the United States as possible. Despite not being the Glorious Leader himself, he allowed for The Ministry to seize control later on.
* {{Gorn}} Virtually every kill or quest undertaken by Boone or Kam has resulted in extreme amounts of gorn, to the point that Tal won't even talk to Kamarov anymore, and the Raiders have taken to referring to Boone as a "Blood God."
* GovernmentConspiracy One of the theories is that the government developed the zombie virus in the first place.
