Added DiffLines:

** Taylor threatens to do this to Emma and Sophia when they won't stop making fun of her being a fan girl of Glory Girl. When Emma points out that they're in the middle of a street, and thus that won't work, Taylor declares that she'll drag them to a building, climb up it, and ''then'' chuck them out.


** Taylor herself, as in canon she started heroic and quickly became a villain, but here she starts- and remains- a hero.



** Taylor's fans came up with the "Wonder Red" name. She didn't like it, but she accepted it anyway.

to:

** Taylor's fans came up with the "Wonder Red" name. She didn't like it, but she accepted it anyway.anyway (partially because she hadn't come up with one on her own yet).



** A minor one, but the ones who used Taylor's tech in the Leviathan Fight are ''really'' sick of being asked if they were Mastered by it, as they had to spend several days after the fight in Master-Stranger containment.



** It's mentioned that of the "classic" Slaughterhouse Nine, only three remain alive- The Siberian [[spoiler: Which really means Manton]], Crawler, and Bonesaw- although Bonesaw is in prison and awaiting trial.



* EmpoweredBadassNormal: Emma, once she gets the heroic identity of "Wonder Star." Using Taylor's tech, she is capable of superheroic feats.
** Everyone in the Endbringer Shelter who used Taylor's Tech to ''punch the Endbringer in the face.''



* HumanityIsSpecial: The basis behind Taylor's methodology is that sure, we can be bad at times, but working together, we can be... well, wonderful.



* MemeticBadass: InUniverse, Blue Steel is one (a minor Brute her from the Washington DC area). He took down Mannequin with the help of a villain. When this was reported, the thread on Parahumans Online was quickly derailed by Blue Steel memes.



* OnlySaneMan: When the three girls are together, Emma is level-headed and rational while her friends are busy bickering.

to:

* OnlySaneMan: When the three girls are together, Emma is level-headed and rational while her friends are busy bickering. She's so much this trope in comparison to Sophia and Taylor that Madison thinks Emma is secretly a Master-type cape.



* RealityEnsues: As much as Taylor things that people are wonderful when working together, she approaches the PRT to give them the Unite tech after its first test. People working together might be good, but it would be best if they weren't just random people on the street and were instead people who were paid and trained to fight.



* SparedByTheAdaptation: Annette Hebert, Taylor's mom, survives in this story (though her husband does not). Dean, AKA Gallant of the Wards, survives the Leviathan attack where his counterpart did not.

* UnfinishedUntestedUsedAnyway: Taylor finished her Wonder Pendants and passed them out right before Leviathan hit the shelter where she was hiding, for an unusually literal example of the GodzillaThreshold in action. The reason she didn't pass them out beforehand? She finished them in the middle of the battle, literally minutes before the shelter she finished them in was hit. Fortunately they worked perfectly.

Added DiffLines:

* DyingMomentOfAwesome: [[spoiler:Danny killing Jack Slash by tackling him through a window]] surely counts.


** Danny Hebert had no powers, no special abilities, yet he was the one to take down Jack Slash once and for all.



* ChekhovsGun: In chapter 2, Taylor briefly mentiones that she invented a gadget called the "Wonder-Mop". Eleven chapters later, [[spoiler:Emma smashes a tank using the Wonder-Mop.]]

Her conclusion, that [[TheTeamNormal Emma]] is a Cape (specifically, a Master, as that's the only way she can see that Taylor and Sophia haven't killed each other yet) leads to Taylor teasing her best friend about it.



** The PRT kept Mr. Hebert's identity a secret for years so that his surviving family wouldn't draw any attention, instead saying that Armsmaster and Miss Militia were the ones to kill Jack Slash. This proved wise, as several copycats claiming to be "the Next Jack Slash" rose up over the years and tried to kill the two who did claim credit.

* DeathByAdaptation: Danny dies killing Jack. Carol Dallon, AKA Brandish, died in the S9 attack on Brockton, and Mr. Dallon dies in the Leviathan attack. Dennis' father, though not a major character, also dies when Leviathan comes to town.



* MundaneMadeAwesome: Taylor turned a mere mop into a very destructive weapon.

* MundaneMadeAwesome: Taylor turned a mere mop into a very destructive weapon. It was how she got unmasked to her mother- her mom grabbed the mop from the closet to kill a cockroach, and knocked a hole into the basement. Emma later uses it to crush tanks.

Added DiffLines:

** If Taylor has time to calibrate a Wonder Suit and Pendant to the person, they help in an individual way- Sophia's allows her to be tougher and to share her power with others, for example. However, for those who have the generic Wonder abilities, it's just low-level brute powers as well as the standard Wonder abilities.


Added DiffLines:

** Vicky does one subtly, asking why Wonder Red helped the people in that particular bunker and not earlier in the fight. While it's resolved peacefully, and she accepts the answer (Wonder Red figured that bunker was likely to be hit and didn't join earlier because her tech wasn't finished until after the fight had begun), she is angry because her father died and her boyfriend is in a coma.

Added DiffLines:

** The PRT knew that a Trigger had happened in the final fight with Jack Slash, and that distracted the villain long enough for Danny Hebert to pull off his HeroicSacrifice. They had assumed that, since Danny was mortally wounded by Jack, he was the one to trigger, to allow him to keep moving long enough to save the day. In reality, it was Taylor who triggered when she saw her father attacked, Danny was just a normal man.


Added DiffLines:

* InSpiteOfANail: Despite the different circumstances and timeline, Taylor still doesn't want to join the Wards initially. Like in canon, it has to do with her wanting to be more impressive before she joined up (her other motivation, teen drama, is not mentioned, probably due to the lack of bullying). By the time the story starts, she's willing to join the Wards because she has things under her belt that are ''not'' the [[BewareTheSillyOnes Wonder Mop.]]


* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: One of the first comments on the Parahumans Online messageboard thread discussing Squealer's latest creations is someone declaring they're going to take a long vacation somewhere the junkies don't have an armoured division.



* TookALevelInKindness: Sophia is still a {{Jerkass}}, but she's somewhat kinder and more tolerable than her canon self.
