* {{Badass}}: ''Eridan,'' of all people, complete with BadassBoast.
--> "I'm Eridan fucking Ampora, thank you ever so," you snap. "I'm half shark and half hurricane, you get me? I can outrun, outfight, and outfuck any ten trolls put together and this was never your ''glubbin'' show in the first place!"


* AllLovingHero: Karkat loves the whole world. [[EvenTheGuysWantHim The whole world loves Karkat right back.]]



* AwesomeYetPractical: Vriska's flying motorcycle (proudly sporting the glorious name that is ''Fucksl8yer''). Very handy for kidnapping members of state for the sake of [[spoiler:participating in a death match over the mountains.]]

* LightIsNotGood[=/=]DarkIsNotEvil: As in canon, trolls are nocturnal, and effectively see the symbolism of light and dark (as understood by humans) backwards. Daytime is perilous and spent sleeping, night-time is safety and spent active. The face of god associated with darkness and voids (Pulse and Haze) is the most venerated and one of the most kindly, while the most fearsome and destructive is Light and Rain, called explicitly "the brightest face" and "the fair lady of light". There are references to "daymares" and "day terrors", and scattered all throughout the text are human turns of phrases with night and day switching places.

* EveryoneIsRelated: The twelve characters are all related, by troll standards. Troll families are made up of one's quadrants, and theirs, and ''theirs'', as far out as you have to get to reach a closed system. Most people generally only worry about their "inclades", fairly close relatives of three removes or less. The characters form a "clade", a family made up of only inclades- meaning that by the time they're in their late teens, every one of them is related to all the others. This is explicitly very unusual; clades are rare, and usually have closer to seventy members than twelve.



* LoveDodecahedron: Karkat's section of the clade is rather messed-up around the time of ''Lost Teeth.''

* LoveDodecahedron: Karkat's section of the clade is rather messed-up around the time of ''Lost Teeth.'''' Considering how much the relationships in the clade change over time, it's safe to say that all twelve trolls make up a loose, shifting LoveDodecahedron that gradually gets sorted out, and Karkat is just the center of a particular tangle.

* CoveredWithScars: Some trolls perform ritual scarification to dedicate themselves to a particular godhead - an atom for Frost and Frogs, a lightning bolt for Wind and Shade, and so on. Any ritual scar is the mark of someone pushing the far side of "zealot". So it's both alarming and unsurprising that Terezi has covered her entire upper body including her arms and minus her head with the iconography of Heat and Clockwork, crashing straight through "tribute" and out the other side to, in the words of the creators, "an epidermal dirty love letter." ''To God.''
