** Jary as well.

* RomanticFalseLead - Roarke for Scout. He was likable, but since his introductory story also revealed that Jary was an underdog and had a crush on Scout, it was obvious what would happen. He eventually gets CharacterDevelopment.

* SmallNameBigEgo - The writer herself. Got called out for it, and has since apologized.

* TrueCompanions - Damas, Wes, Jak, Ava and Cayo were the original group of friends. Scout and Sorea came in shortly before the group achieved true [[TrueCompanions best friends]] status. Jary and his friends Caton and Gad were brought in eventually, and Riona, Tancredo and Jak form their own little [[TrueCompanions group of friends]] as well.
* TwinSwitch - In a story featuring a pair of twins as they grow up, it was inevitable. It was actually done twice, once played for humor, the other to introduce the fact that Wes got his father's SuperpoweredEvilSide and Damas got the Superpowered Good Side.

* SliceOfLife - The older stories were generally self-contained, and about the kids acting like, well, kids. While most later stories are also self-contained, they are much more dramatic, and some big underlying plot is beginning to come to light.
* SmallGirlBigGun - Sorea once went to the ShootingGallery and was goaded by Damas into trying out a new Blaster Mod.
* SmallNameBigEgo - The writer herself. Got called out for it, and has since apologized.
* SpinOffspring - The entire premise of the series.
* SpotlightStealingSquad - Daxter shows up a whole lot more than Jak the First does. Jary also seems to be the one of the most fleshed-out characters (he at least has a lot of tropes).
* StraightGay - Gad.
* {{Superdickery}} - Chapter 138 opens with [[spoiler: Jary beating the shit out of Roarke. It is quickly revealed that he's just trying to teach Roarke how to fight.]]
* TakingTheKids - When Sig and his wife divorce in the beginning of the series, both agree that Sig, who's moving to Haven City, should take Scout..
* TheirFirstTime - There was a story that opened with Scout and Jary's first time. The author made sure to mention that they used a condom ([[GoodPeopleHaveGoodSex both]] [[ShowerOfLove times]]).
* TrueCompanions - Damas, Wes, Jak, Ava and Cayo were the original group of friends. Scout and Sorea came in shortly before the group achieved true [[TrueCompanions best friends]] status. Jary and his friends Caton and Gad were brought in eventually, and Riona, Tancredo and Jak form their own little [[TrueCompanions group of friends]] as well.
* TwinSwitch - In a story featuring a pair of twins as they grow up, it was inevitable. It was actually done twice, once played for humor, the other to introduce the fact that Wes got his father's SuperpoweredEvilSide and Damas got the Superpowered Good Side.
* TwoferTokenMinority - Scout is black and in a wheelchair.
* UnstoppableRage - The Precursors' "Feral State", a [[strike: homage to]] rip-off of the [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Avatar State]].
* VitriolicBestBuds - Cayo and Jak, following the pattern of their fathers.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting - Daxter, Tess and Veger can change into human forms at will. Jak inherited that ability. Cayo and Sorea (and occasionally Pecker and Berri) will go to Tess or Daxter if they need to be turned into a human for whatever reason.
* WiperStart - Done with Veger in one story, not to show that he was unfamiliar with the vehicle, but to bring up that he was nervous.
* WordOfGod - The occasional before- and after-chapter spiels.
* YaoiFangirl - Ava; see above.

!Tropes

* [[AbusiveParents Abusive Grandparents]] - [[spoiler: Jary]]'s grandparents blamed him for their daughter's death. Eventually they realize their mistake and reconcile, but it's too little too late: the damage is done.

* [[AlasPoorVillain Alas Poor Jerkass]] - [[spoiler: Tancredo's father, Rajesh, who's been shown as a stuck-up asshole, hands Jak over to the Dark Makers in order to get his son back. He later goes back and sacrifices himself to save Jak. Then we find out how much the death of his wife affected him. Suddenly, he's {{Woobie}} material.]]
* ArtEvolution - Well, writing evolution. The progress from the first few stories to the later ones is especially evident when compared side-by side.

* GoodGirlsAvoidAbortion - [[spoiler: Jary]]'s mother refused to abort him. It cost her her life.

* GratuitousSpanish - The monkaws sometimes have whole conversations in Spanish, which would count as BilingualBonus if the author didn't include translations.

* HeroicSacrifice - [[spoiler: Rajesh]] shields Jak from an attack and gets his chest ripped open for his trouble.
* [[HonoraryUncle Honorary Aunts and Uncles]] - The [[TrueCompanions best friends]] from the games acts as this for the new [[TrueCompanions best friends]].

* IJustWantMyBelovedToBeHappy - Roarke, after showing up and making things extremely uncomfortable between Jary and Scout, he eventually sets things right.
--> There's something I want you [Jary] to understand. I love Scout. If I thought you would hurt her, I would never try to get you guys back together. But I know that she'll be happy ''and safe'' with you. That's all I care about.
* InformedAbility - All Wastelanders are badasses by default, unless shown to be otherwise.
* InTheBlood - Just look at the main cast; ass-kicking is apparently hereditary.
* InterspeciesRomance - Sorea and Caton, though Sorea goes to one of the local Precursors to be turned into a human whenever they meet up. Caton did not find out until the Valentine's Day story, and it was confirmed during Sorea's birthday story that they're both still virgins.

* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast - Jaegar Ackart, serial rapist.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown - A few.
* NoodleImplements - Callan's plan to help get Scout and Jary back together.
-->'''Scout:''' It doesn't involve fuzzy pink handcuffs and a copy of ''Tuck Everlasting'', does it?
-->'''Callan:''' ... Actually, it's ''Catcher in the Rye''.
* NoodleIncident - Whatever happened in first grade to get Jak's powers sealed away is never elaborated on.
* NoOneCouldSurviveThat / NotQuiteDead - [[spoiler: After Jary falls off the Interstate, he is presumed dead. However, he survived the fall and managed to make it the rest of the way to Spargus.]]
* OverprotectiveDad - Sig invoked this when he met Jary for the first time, but it's mostly averted because Ava and Scout are total badasses, and Sorea has every other character in the main cast looking out for her.
* ParentalAbandonment - Poor, poor Tancredo. Dead mom and disinterested father. [[spoiler: Or so everyone thought. Too bad he died before they could reconcile.]]
** Jary as well.
* PowerTrio - Jak (id), Tancredo (superego) and Riona (ego).
* PrimalScene - Scout and Jary walk in on Aaralyn with her boyfriend (who Scout didn't know about). Things quickly become very awkward.

* RetiredBadass - Averted, as most of the original cast is still in action. Jak the First is the closest thing to being retired, as he's now a Captain in the Freedom League rather than the sole world-saver.
* RomanticFalseLead - Roarke for Scout. He was likable, but since his introductory story also revealed that Jary was an underdog and had a crush on Scout, it was obvious what would happen. He eventually gets CharacterDevelopment.
* SatelliteLoveInterest - Roarke was one for Scout in his first appearance.
* ScarsAreForever - After [[spoiler: Jary]] nearly falls to his death, his left shoulder and a good portion of his left arm and torso are scarred up. Also, he has scars from the knife wounds [[spoiler: his father]] inflicted.
* SecondLove - Jary was this for Scout.

-->'''Pecker:''' *startled* [[VisibleSilence ...]]Thank you.

* SatelliteLoveInterest - Roarke was one for Scout in his first appearance.

* DidNotDoTheResearch - In some cases, though albino-ottsel has been trying to avert this as of late. For Sorea's quinceanera, she came right out and said that she had trouble with the research, so she "[[TheyJustDidntCare bastardized an important cultural event]] for her own purposes."
