* GreyAndGrayMorality: Well yeah, in her works, no faction is entirely perfect.
* PrimalFear: She seems to be a fan of these. Her books are filled with deadly bugs (sometimes deadly ''giant'' bugs), vicious animals, burning/drowning/disembowelment/horrifically cruel deaths, and being eaten alive (often by bugs or vicious animals).
* {{Plot Twist}}s/{{Twist Ending}}s: Quite a few.
* ShellShockedVeteran: Not surprising, considering her father was one.


* FirstPersonSnarker: Quite a bit in ''The Hunger Games''.
* FoodPorn: Both ''The Hunger Games'' and, to a lesser extent, ''The Underland Chronicles'' contain descriptions of lavish meals, making for interesting {{Mood Whiplash}}es when contrasted with some of the other things described in them.



* RuleOfThree: In both ''The Underland Chronicles'' and ''The Hunger Games'', each book consists of three parts, which in turn consist of nine (three times three) chapters each.



* SlidingScaleOfShinyVersusGritty: Regalia and the rats' realm in ''The Underland Chronicles'', Capitol and the districts in ''The Hunger Games''.

Added DiffLines:

* SignatureStyle: Her preferred strokes include: [[KidHero young heroes]] with younger siblings [[BigBrotherInstinct they would do anything to protect]]; [[DeadpanSnarker deadpan snarkers]], [[JerkWithAHeartofGold world-weary mentors]] [[SinkOrSwimMentor who use sarcasm and put-downs in their training]], authority figures who later turn out to be evil, [[GreyandGreyMorality a balance of good and evil to both sides]], [[AnyoneCanDie beloved characters]] [[NeverGotToSayGoodbye dying suddenly]], and [[LightIsNotGood villains somehow connected to white]].
** And yes, [[WarIsHell war is definitely a nightmare]].
** She also likes to end chapters (and sometimes books) with a WhamLine.
