* NoKillLikeOverkill: To deal with the Level 6 attacking Aiz, Percy has Ryuu snatch up the girls before unloading one of Welf's [[FantasticNuke magic swords]] on the murderer. Then has Ryuu back it with her magic. Then drives Riptide into the ground to collapse it down and bury them. [[spoiler: Typically, it fails dramatically to kill her.]]

Then drives Riptide into the ground to collapse it down and bury them. [[spoiler: Typically, it fails dramatically to kill her.]]


* AudienceSurrogate: As to be expected after being [[FishOutOfWater dropped in a strange place and time]], Percy has very little information of what is considered common knowledge, requiring other characters to fill him in.



* * BrownNote: The Batpats use sound waves to disrupt the target’s concentration, which Percy says “was a nice way of saying they projected the sound of nails on a chalkboard straight into my head”. [[spoiler: Percy eventually figures out how to use their fangs with Mystery to recreate the Sonic Arrows used by Michael Yew.]]



* CannibalismSuperpower: Beings born from the Dungeon can devour the magic stones of other monsters to grow stronger. The magic stones of low level monsters barely make any difference to higher level ones [[spoiler: as Mrs O’Leary demonstrates. Feeding her the magic stone of the Irregular Black Goliath restored her to full power and then some despite having previously reduced to a shadow that Level 2 magic stones were barely healing.]]
** [[spoiler: The Demi Spirit Anaklusmos devoured the magic stones of every monster from the 19th to the 27th Floors and the Irregular Black variant of the 27th Floor Boss which spawned on the 28th Floor. In Chapter 71 she offers Percy one, noting that as a being born from the Dungeon he could use it to restore part of his drained power. He refuses.]]



* CassandraTruth: Played straight by Hyacinthus and the Apollo Familia, ironically enough by a prophecy given by Cassandra. Averted by Percy, who is GenreSavvy enough to realise ignoring the prophetic statements made by a woman called Cassandra with some connection to Apollo is just plain stupid.
--> What was that? Someone in Apollo’s Familia… doubting a lady named Cassandra?
--> Now, that’s just bad form.



* DiscardAndDraw: When Kronos regained his full power, Luke’s Curse of Achillies was destroyed in exchange for what Percy dubbed “Phenomenal Cosmic Power”.



* TheDreaded: The Black Dragon, responsible for slaughtering the Zeus and Hera Familias. [[spoiler: Fels]] distinctly does not say its real name, a fact Percy picks up on.



* FamousLastWords: Hestia's last words before her HeroicSacrifice in the prologue: “Open your eyes, Percy Jackson”.



* HeroicSelfDeprecation: Percy’s self-esteem is all but non-existent, blaming himself for the destruction of Olympus and the deaths of all his friends. Upon Hestia explaining that his Hero Developmental Ability makes him bring out the best in others and inspire heroic actions his first thought is to wonder how he qualifies.
** Hestia also has self-esteem issues, and internally refers to herself as a worthless goddess.



* HomeFieldAdvantage: Percy when in water.

to:

* HomeFieldAdvantage: Percy when in water.water takes this to an extreme. His MakingASplash powers give him so much control over water that he is capable of altering how others are able to interact with it and trapping them underwater or stuck in the same place. Even [[spoiler: [[DarkActionGirl Revis]], who demolished both Percy and Ryuu with little effort,]] finds out that being unable to breath or move to be a serious enough problem to flee.
** [[spoiler: Percy and Revis ''both'' have a HomeFieldAdvantage in that fight, Revis being a creature of the Dungeon and Percy being despised by it caused it to weaken the floor beneath the lake they were fighting him, allowing Revis to escape.]]
** Inverted by the Olympians in the prologue. Fighting Kronos in the throne room put them at the heart of their power… and also gave Kronos access to their [[AchillesHeel Thrones]].



* JerkassGods: Canon for both PJO and Danmachi, and how Percy generally perceives the gods. Percy’s reaction to finding out the gods only descended to the earth because they were bored to and not to save the mortal races to be comfortingly familiar. When confronted by examples of genuinely kind and helpful gods such as Miach and Takemikazuchi he is often caught off guard.



* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: [[spoiler: Anaklusmos slaughtered every monster on floors 19-28 of the Dungeon, then killed a Black version of the Floor Boss of the 27th Floor on the 28th]]. The 28th Floor isn’t even recognisable after she was done with it.



* PlotTriggeringDeath: Ethan managed to kill Annabeth, leading Percy to go on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge and slaughter all the enemy demigods on the Williamsburg Bridge. Without Annabeth and Ethan there, everything went downhill after that.



* SealedInsideAPersonShapedCan: [[spoiler: Anaklusmos heavily implies that Elpis, the Spirit of Hope, in currently inside Percy. Whether it is SealedGoodInACan or SealedEvilInACan is up for debate.]]



* SuperSenses: All Adventurers have these, but Percy's sense of smell is strong enough to track individuals.

to:

* SuperSenses: All Adventurers have these, but Percy's sense of smell is strong enough to track individuals. It increases with the Falna. High level adventurers can effortlessly hear whispered conversations from a distance, as Percy pointed out to Hestia that if she really didn’t want Ryuu to hear their conversation they would have to move far further down the street.
* TemptingFate: Fels makes it quite clear that he wants Percy nowhere near the package Hashana was carrying. [[spoiler: Sure enough, Percy ends up trying to block the Jewel Fetus from reaching Aiz… and Anaklusmos is turned into a Demi Spirit.]]


Added DiffLines:

* * TheWorkaholic: Percy has very little concept of downtime, being driven by his need to explore the Dungeon and find his friends.


* AlienBlood. Monsters in the Dungeon often have strangely coloured blood, for example the War Shadows have black blood.



* AttackReflector: The purpose of Percy's Skill Thetis: A Plea To Hold Back Fate. WordOfGod is that at full charge with all nine layers it is capable of reflecting an attack on the level of [[PersonOfMassDestruction Riveria's]] [[KillItWithFire Rea Laevateinn]]. [[AwesomeButImpractical Good luck getting it charged that much.]]

** Mystery is an incredibly rare Developmental Ability which is highly sought after and poorly understood, it allows users to "activate a miracle" and craft magic items. It works best by synergizing with other Developmental Abilities and how it manifests depends on the user. Mystery allows Percy to make a variety of magic items. Initially he only makes Undine Silk, but he later learns to make a variety of other items, such as [[spoiler:Nectar, [[KillItWithFire Greek Fire]], [[InvisibilityCloak Chameleon Armour]], Sonic Arrows, knock off [[NighInvulnerability Nemean Lion skin]] and [[HealingFactor Golden Fleece]]]].

** Undine Silk is a fairy cloth imbued with the power of a water spirit, capable of blocking out the heat of the [[LethalLavaLand 44th Floor]]. Welf uses it to remain completely cool while close to his forge, preventing heat exhaustion and allow him to forge for longer.

* ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight: Eina decides to go to the Loki Familia about [[spoiler: the stolen magic sword and what Percy and Welf were about to do]] even though she knew she could potentially lose her job for doing so.



* StrongAsTheyNeedToBe: [[JustifiedTrope Actually justified]]. Percy's strength fluctuates and changes depending on which of his Skills and Abilities are activated by the situation, allowing him to range anywhere from mid-Level 2 to low-Level 5.

* ToBeAMaster: Welf’s goal is to be able to make something that amazes even [[UltimateBlacksmith Hephaestus]], which would require him to be the best smith in the entire world. To get there, his Blacksmith Developmental Ability would need to be at least E, but probably C or higher (raising even one rank is described as ludicriously difficult) and accordingly probably need him to be at least Level 5 or 6.



* TurnedAgainstTheirMasters: [[spoiler:It turns out that the Dungeon spawned Percy as a monster, or tried to but couldn't make him into one. Since then he's been pretty much antagonizing it.]]

Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler:Anaklusmos]] feels that the very notion of Hope is nothing but this:
---> “The last and greatest of Pandora’s horrors. Hope was not given to mankind as a mercy, Perseus, for when have you ever known the gods to be merciful in their vengeance? It was meant as a punishment like all the rest, like the Phlegethon flowing through the lands of the dead. It gives you the strength to go on, only so you can suffer more.”

* TheFinalTemptation: [[spoiler:Anaklusmos offers Percy the chance to join her in serving ''Her'' and in doing so he would be able to get all of his friends and family back since she can bring back the dead. The only problem is that doing so means Orario would be destroyed. He refuses.]]
