Added DiffLines:

* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed]]. [[spoiler:Cy manages to defeat Nyarlathotep by summoning him back to the Court of Azathoth, but only thanks to the schemes of the Harlot, and not only is he insane at that point, but he [[BrokeYourArmPunchingCthulhu succumbs to Azathoth's lethal influence shortly after]].

Added DiffLines:

* DraggedOffToHell: [[spoiler:Nyarlathotep, in the final issue, gets his ass hauled back to the Court of Azathoth by Cy, with guidance from the Harlot]].


* MadnessMantra: In the second storyarc, a young boy named Jason keeps muttering the words "knees first, head second" after opening a box given to him by a very pretty lady. [[spoiler: This turns out to be instructions on how to kill someone with a baseball bat.]]

* MadnessMantra: In the second storyarc, story arc, a young boy named Jason keeps muttering the words "knees first, head second" after opening a box given to him by a very pretty lady. [[spoiler: This turns out to be instructions on how to kill someone with a baseball bat.]]]]
* NakedNutter: In the first issue, Sy finds a Cthulhu-worshipping priest naked and conducting a ritual at the Arkham Boarding House; worshipers of the Great Old Ones are often insane or deluded, and this one's no exception: not only is he covered in ritual markings, but he goes on to conduct a shockingly light-hearted discussion with Sy - despite having just cut off one of his own testicles. And then he slits his throat.

Added DiffLines:

* IKnowYourTrueName: Downplayed. A true name in the mythos can only really be used to summon the being, not control it. Mr. Arkham also drives Cy mad with the name of [[spoiler:himself, Nyarlathotep]]. This ends up biting him in the ass, as in the final issue [[spoiler:Nyarlathotep sends Cy to the court of Azathoth, planning on having Cy draw the Daemon Sultan's attention to earth. Thanks to the Harlot's guidance, Cy instead uses Nyarlathotep's true name to summon him back there.]]

Added DiffLines:

* PetTheDog: Lucifer, [[spoiler:the Harlot's heir, gives Dirk back his memory of his wife]].

Added DiffLines:

* HorsemenOfTheApocalypse: Downplayed. While they don't correspond to the original horsemen (other than Gith, who's pestilence), mr. Arkham gathers four beings that help him bring about the awakening of Cthulhu. Gith, the Masked Mute, Sysyphyx and Gnruk.

Added DiffLines:

* CompositeCharacter: Nodens acts the way Lovecraft wrote him, but the final issue adds a lot of elements of Poseidon, such as wielding a trident rather than a spear and having an underwater throne attended by merfolk.

Added DiffLines:

* YourApprovalFillsMeWithShame: Said word for word by Dirk after his considerably more racist and sexist coworker approves of his plan.

Added DiffLines:

* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Unsurprisingly. In particular, Nodens stand out because he is neither a Great Old One ''nor'' an Outer God. Of the mythos, he is perhaps closest to humanity, being one of our gods, yet his "morality" is entirely centered around hunting and he seens nothing wrong with hunting humans if they're good sport.

Added DiffLines:

* PoliceAreUseless: Somewhat justified in that "An ancient god is awakening" is a hard story to sell to the cops, but the police in issue #3 refused to believe that someone would break into Cy's house just to steal his uncle's research.


** Dirk gets one of the more heartbreaking ones, when in exchange for the location of the Gray Man's ceremonial blade, [[spoiler:the Harlot takes all the memories of his dead wife.]]

He doesn't know who tho woman is, doesn't care, and kills the shapeshifter.]]
