* BrickJoke: Early in the series Marlene is messing around with her cameras, trying to find a way to capture Bernie on film. In the final issue, Bernie is temporarily rendered visible to such devices, so Marlene takes the opportunity for a group photo. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Bernie blinks]].

[[caption-width-right:309: ''Welcome to the "Dye After You Die" Club'']]

->'''Clara''': [[InfoDump Okay, real quick]]. Jon killed me! I was brought back by the GrimReaper, [[DontFearTheReaper who is a very nice lady]]. I joined her group of immortal warriors and am now fighting [[EldritchAbomination interdimensional monsters]] and the people who control them!
->'''Jane''': [[PrecisionFStrike Well, fuck you too!]]

* AuthorAppeal: A quick look at the author's deviantART page shows that he is ''definitely'' OneOfUs, and just like in [[Webcomic/{{Sunstone}} his other series]], his appreciation for {{Collectible Card Game}}s and {{MMORPG}}s is quite visible.

Added DiffLines:

** There are more than a few BlinkAndYoullMissIt moments that forshadow Clara's condition even before Asrah gets devoured. When she dies and first meets Bernie and Sam, she gets angry with his jokes causing her [[RedEyesTakeWarning eyes to glow red.]] This happens again when Marlene tries to take Bernie's photo with a modified camera and in the photo, Clara's eyes are red not her natural green.


* XMeetsY: It's ''Series/{{Chuck}}'' meets Creator/HPLovecraft. Like ''Chuck'' it's an offbeat and often tongue-in-cheek spin on the Literature/CthulhuMythos, yet at the same time succeeds at ''itself'' crafting a very respectable CosmicHorrorStory.


* ShipTease: There's some mild teasing between Sam and Bernie, present right from the very first issue when Bernie seems to take unusual exception to the thought of Sam dying (again) [[spoiler: after she reveals that several other members of the Vigil have recently been killed]].
** [[spoiler: Confirmed in issue 8 that Sam and Bernie are in love when he plants a BigDamnKiss on her right before she charges off to battle The Thorn, and that the ''other'' treasured memory he held onto when he was "dead" was of another kiss they shared six years ago while Bernie was {{Heroic BSOD}}ing.]]

* ShoutOut: James dubs one of their plans for taking down the Thorn "[[Literature/TheHobbit Operation Black Arrow]]."


* NobodyPoops: EnforcedTrope in one instance. As Clara learns to her dismay, ghosts (prior to becoming one of the Vigil) can't vomit, cry, or poop.

This apparently extends to full-fledged Death Knights, as well: Sam notes in his narration that since joining the Vigil he doesn't need to pee anymore, which suits him just fine since the sound of zippers creep him out after hearing the undertakers zip up his own body bag after his first death.

Added DiffLines:

* DeadAllAlong: [[spoiler:Alicia Benes isn't the one contacting Maria to get her to a resurrection. Her soul has long since passed on, hence why Bernie ''couldn't'' have her BackFromTheDead. Instead, it's [[EldritchAbomination the Thorn]] taking on her shape.]]

Added DiffLines:

* PoliceAreUseless: JustifiedTrope. The only thing that can kill agents of the Primordial Enemy is a member of the Vigil, so when [[spoiler:the Pale Court attacks New York City]], the police helplessly relegate themselves to minimizing the damage to civilians rather than getting involved personally.

* HeelRealization: Maria Benes is shown to be fighting against one in Issue 5. It doesn't last, however, after a few words from 'Alicia'.

It finally seems to stick in the finale, when [[spoiler:she learns that Bernie had been telling the truth about "Alicia" all along. It probably helped that Alicia ''ripped her arm off'' to free herself from her RestrainingBolt.]]


** The true nature of [[spoiler:Alicia]] is also heavily foreshadowed: When reading Lana's memories while sealing her, Clara learns that primordial beings appear to prospective Necromancers by taking on the appearance of their (usually dead) loved oes. [[spoiler:It's eventually revealed that the Thorn one of the four True Primordials manifests to Maria Benes as the ghost of her deceased daughter, Alicia. She uses this form to manipulate her into completing her translation of the Dreamer's Codex, and binding her to Alicia's brain dead (and soulless) body.]]
