** Subverted by all of the actual werewolves so far. Enid may even be an Inversion, as her last name could be a reference to [[HunterOfMonsters the wolf hunter]] [[Manga/WolfsRain Quent Yaiden]].

* NiceGuy: Peter Lot and Luna Hamilton, to an extent, along with Alexander Romanov, Michelle Lawson, and Ben [=McCarthy=]. Luna Hamilton has, effectively, used CooldownHugs in the past to solve conflict [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome (including calming down a raging Werewolf),]] and tries to care for everyone around her. Peter Lot is a BenevolentBoss, soft-spoken and with barely a mean hair on his body... [[HunterOfMonsters unless you're a monster, that is.]] Alexander and Michelle are just generally friendly people, and Ben has purposely become a more enjoyable person to be around.

* DriverFacesPassenger: Most Geniuses who drive regularly fit this trope. Blake, a Werewolf, takes this to an extreme, somehow staying on the road while talking to Luna... [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome ...who just jumped through his windshield and landed in his lap.]]

* Brainwashed: What Maria was in her backstory, more than the average Beholden. (Also Nestor Carbonell, and. . .)
* BrainwashedResidue: Now Maria is independently thinking again, she stutters and has a hard time deciphering the mood of others unless it's obvious or someone else tells her. It just was easier when Mommy Dearest directly told her how to react to people. (. . .Nestor Carbonell again!)


* AllIsWellThatEndsWell: This is Zig-Zagged, with some characters caring more about danger than others. Luna Subverts this as her [[EnemyWithout repressed thoughts]] take physical form and try to kill her, and Enid is a horrifically brutal inversion. Exaggerated by Chris; after getting riddled with bullets, kicked in the balls twice, knocked unconscious ''four times,'' nearly thrown off a cliff, and shot through the chest by his friend Ben, he just shrugs it all off and walks back to his car.

* MassiveMultiplayerCrossover: ST Flyboy254 has so far made threads involving TwistedMetal, WesternAnimation/DespicableMe, VideoGame/HouseOfTheDead, and ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}''. Never mind that a favorite plot device is using Radio/CoastToCoastAM as a vehicle for advancing things. Little Inferno, Age of Empires, and ''Franchise/EvilDead'' have also shown up in significant ways, along with enough references and parallels to Homestuck for the comic to qualify as a major plot device.

* BlessedWithSuck / CursedWithAwesome: This is what it's like being a supernatural, although the Suck to Awesome ratio can be wildly different depending on what kind of Supernatural you are. Being a [[TheHunter Hunter]] is a slightly different experience, but it still fits the trope.

* TheHunter: Peter Lot and Arnold Ulysses would be this trope, if neither of them had their own issues to work out. Peter has only just found out that his brother was running with an organization that filmed the supernatural and was slowly growing angrier and angrier at their inaction, and Arnold stumbled into a force of hunters with advanced tech in an underground bunker, and was kicked off the force for it.

* MuggingTheMonster: People ''really'' seem to like doing this to Ben [=McCarthy,=] and he never gets tired of punishing them for it. [[AllAsiansKnowMartialArts Adaro]] the Vampire invokes this, walking around alone at night waiting to be mugged. Then he feeds on his attackers. Then there's the matter of Peter Lot and Arnold Ulysses, which was more "Mugging a Man Near a Pair of [[TheHunter Hunters.]]"

* GetOnWithItAlready: After a mild piece of confusion when the STs had lost their original plot leads, the event ''Going Viral'' will finally establish at least some clues as to who did and didn't cause the supernatural genocide.



* [[OurGhoulsAreCreepier Our Ghouls Are Vampiric:]] Karmina, an ex-cop turned surgeon, and Shannon, girlfriend and confidant to the Vampire Gene Kendrick, are both ghouls.

* BewareTheNiceOnes: Maria Guerra, the kind, socially awkward nurse '''''who will stab your ass with a hypodermic needle if you don't stop [[LeeroyJenkins running into danger]] goddammit.''''' Luna Hamilton '''used''' to be this, but between the monster in her head making her crazy and her survival instincts pushing people away she's not nice enough to count. Ben McCarthy, Jack Vanatis, Gene Kendrick (he tries to be nice [[PayEvilUntoEvil unless you're a criminal]]) and Peter lot also qualify.

* TheChosenOne: Luna, though she doesn't give it much thought. Zyanya is the decedent of a ''group'' of chosen ones, and Ben McCarthy and Jack Vanatis often end up [[TheUnchosenOne choosing themselves.]]

* ItAmusedMe: Enid Quent and the new vampire prince Voorn show villainous versions; other characters have shown shades of this. Geniuses are particularly noted to possess this trait, particularly [[TheTrickster Ben =McCarthy=]]. He's toned it down a little, though.

* HellIsThatNoise: Enid Quent's [[MeaningfulName deed name]] translates to "She-Who-Screams-In-Darkness". It's most likely because of the angry, hellish growling and snarling she makes when she's attacking.


* [[BigBadassWolf Big Badass Animal:]] If you're a Werewolf or Shapeshifter, chances are you can become this.


* PsychoticSmirk: Ben isn't evil, but he ''loves'' evoking this trope. Delanta's Nosferatu aura makes his smile into a permanent and[[HotterAndSexier sexually disconcerting]] example of this. This is also what a happy [[EverythingsWorseWithWolves Enid]] looks like.
