** Kohza's way of discovering that King Cobra was actually Mr. 2 was asking him what his childhood nickname for the king was. It turns out to be "Nebra," which was 4kids' inexplicable name change for the character.

* NarrativeProfanityFilter: Steven covers his ears in the story after Sanji discovers just who ate the ship's food supply before reaching Alabasta. As such, the readers do not get to know just WHAT Sanji calls Usopp and Carue, but we know it has to be quite colorful.

planned...unfortunately, the author has claimed the story is on hiatus for the time being (although he does wish to return to writing eventually).

Added DiffLines:

* ActorAllusion:
** Steven’s favorite comic book character is Captain Marvel, in reference to Zach Callison’s role as [[WesternAnimation/SupermanShazamTheReturnOfBlackAdam Billy Batson.]]
** Mayor Dewey has to remind himself that most of the bad things in Beach City are Gem things [[Series/{{MysteryScienceTheater3000}} and that he should really just relax.]]


* AmnesiaEpisode: By virtue of adapting the Ocean's Dream filler, this comes into play. The only characters unaffected by memory loss are Robin and the Gems [[spoiler: minus Amethyst.]]

** The mnemosurgey showcases scenes from various season one and two episodes of Steven Universe verbatim, specifically Peridot explaining the Cluster (with Damian and Petrea added given their new presence), the duel between the Jam Buds and Pearl, the dream connection between Lapis and Steven, the forming of Malachite, and Pearl’s lament about Rose after almost letting Steven die.

* AuraVision: [[spoiler: Steven gains this ability around the time of the Ocean's Dream arc. He uses it to locate Noko in the woods and later ends up seeing and sensing the literal emotions of the crew after the duel between Luffy and Usopp, causing him to leave the ship in a fury of emotions.]] [[spoiler: Although not confirmed in the story yet, the author has confirmed that this is Observation Haki.]]

** Robin compares the concept of visualizing one’s memories as a film reel slide show using the same terminology Steven and Connie use to describe what a movie is back in Beach City.



** [[spoiler: Eirney Heca’s Past-Past Fruit powers allow for her to view memory in the same manner as Charlotte Pudding (a film strip), although she does not have the ability to alter memories like Pudding does, but can use them to her own advantage.]]



** Noko and Tatsu from the “Ocean’s Dream” also qualify as their characters don’t even use the same motivations as their canon (to the anime, at least) counterparts. While the concepts of the seahorse using its powers to control Noko and its desire to gain power by siphoning dreams are present, Noko is given an actual backstory and Tatsu is overhauled from wanting to become a Millenial Dragon to actually being [[spoiler: a Corrupted Gem that somehow made it to the Grand Line years before the story began.]]

Added DiffLines:

* BagOfHolding: Connie possesses one of these thanks to [[spoiler: Uncle Grandpa.]]


Added DiffLines:

* OCStandIn: The Baroque Works Trio (Miss Valentine, Mr. 5, and Miss Goldenweek). None of these characters were given much personality in the manga (even with a cover story dedicated to them!), but they were given dreams, which served as the basis for their character motivations. Beyond that and some general bits of canon behavior (Miss Goldenweek’s laziness and Miss Valentine’s sadism), everything else is developed purely by the author.

Added DiffLines:

** The mnemosurgery Steven undergoes forced him to replay memories from both past episodes of the show and from the entire story in general (including scenes implied, but not fully shown, like Steven’s first time boarding the Going Merry).

--> '''Spandam''':“You care about this brat, don't you?! Oh, psychological scars are almost as fun to inflict as physical ones! Lucci, our young captive here has a point. It will hurt Nico Robin far more to watch helplessly than to be hit herself...it's better this way.”

Added DiffLines:

** Usopp’s tall-tale to Ronaldo is literally describing Monet and the giant children from Punk Hazard, keeping up with the joke that Usopp’s tall-tales eventually happen in the story proper in some capacity.

!!''A Gem In The in the Rough'' and ''Gems Without Measure; A Pirate's Treasure'' contains the following tropes:



--> '''Genevieve''': Discounting the fact that I'm underage and have no intentions of being a functional alcoholic like Zoro, drinking isn't something I'll ever be interested in. As a painter, I need to keep my head clear. I'd rather focus on the art and not get sloppy [...] Crappy painters need an artificially created vision to get going. I'm different. I want my art to be purely me. Besides, most artists can't influence emotions using their paints. If I were to be out of it at all, the entire color and emotional spectrum would...well, it's too long to explain and I really don't have the energy to do so."

* Sadist: An ongoing debate in “The Adventures Of The Baroque Works Trio” is whether or not Petrea is a sadist despite turning over a new leaf. It is implied that yes, she is, although only when she is pushed to a certain point, like when General Maji destroyed her dress back during the adventures on Mecha Island. It doesn’t help that she has Amethyst to encourage her.
