Added DiffLines:

* CityOfAdventure: Mist Village is gradually turning into one, especially after it gets its town specialization.


Added DiffLines:

* DungeonBasedEconomy: Mist Village has many wonders, most of which were hauled out of some cave or another.

Added DiffLines:

* LostTechnology: Richter can hardly go underground without finding some world-changing magic MacGuffin. He's the Thomas Edison of cavern looting.

Added DiffLines:

* SupernaturalFearInducer: Some things have the ability to cause a fear debuff in others. Richter's dungeon creates a "doubt" debuff, and another character points out that it's a particularly insidious type of fear; while for some it's enough to keep them out of the dungeon altogether, others will still be lured into the dungeon only to suddenly have it hit them and make them fatally hesitate in the middle of battle.

Added DiffLines:

* ShoulderSizedDragon: Alma the dragonling is the size of a cat.

Added DiffLines:

* StandardStatusEffects: Richter gets notifications when he causes them or is affected by them - bleeding, confusion, and so on.


* IKnowYourTrueName: True names are a thing in The Land and can be used, for instance, to bind another's soul to do your bidding. For chaos seeds, their true name is the name they were born with.



* MeaningfulName: James chose the new name Richter because, after discovering his Limitless ability, he wanted a name that suited the power he would one day have:
-->If what Xuetrix said was true then his power could increase exponentially. If he really was in a new world, he planned on getting as strong as possible and making an impact. He would shake the ground and his accomplishments would only be measured by... James smiled and looked at Xuetrix. "My name is Richter."



* ToiletHumour: Book 8 takes it to a painful level by spending an ''entire chapter'' just to describe Richter's diarrhea.

* ShoutOut: ''Many.''
** One of the very first in the series is Richter killing a fox, and giving in to an emotion.... the urge to sing Music/{{Ylvis}}' "What Does The Fox Say".
** Richter occasionally uses Earth references as passcodes, like pairing the password [[WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty "Rick" with the response "Morty"]].
** Several of the new villagers in ''Predators'' have names that appear to be references, among them the [[Series/{{Firefly}} courtesan Inara]] and the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sailor_Jerry sailor Jerry]].
** When Richter first sees the tovuut mauler, his reaction is "Ummmm. It's a [[Franchise/StarWars rancor]]."
** [[Franchise/MarvelUniverse Vibranium]] exists in The Land. When Richter discovers this, he thinks about how he wants to make a Captain America shield and Black Panther armor.
** ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' is referenced several times:
*** There's a scene that echoes one from the "The Train Job" episode from Firefly: Richter gives a speech to one of their defeated opponents, the man snaps back defiantly, and Richter kills him before moving on to the next guy and starting the speech over before the second guy quickly agrees.
*** A new villager in the seventh book is a courtesan named Inara.
*** The seventh book name-drops the show and discusses how a line from it ("I look out for me and mine. That don't include you 'less I conjure it does.") relates to Richter's current situation.
** A scene toward the end of the seventh book, where [[spoiler:Richter rides the body of the evolved mauler as he falls to his likely death, arm in the air yelling "Yahoooooo!"]], reads suspiciously like a similar scene in ''Film/DrStrangelove'', especially since the phrase "strange love" is used just a sentence or two before.
** Several references to Indiana Jones in book 8 regarding scorpions.
** Richter's position at one point is book 8 is compared to having "[[Film/RevengeOfTheSith the high ground, in Jedi parlance]]".
** The phrase "[[WesternAnimation/TheLionKing1994 hakuna matata]]" is used in book 8, although it's used in a context that would more accurately be described as the Circle of Life.
** To determine whether any of the people he's just met are chaos seeds, Richter asks them [[Franchise/JamesBond if they know how Bond takes his martinis]].

Added DiffLines:

* DraconicHumanoid:
** The Messeji - the bonding ability between Richter and Alma - merges them into a single draconic humanoid, with a humanoid shape but a tail and the ability to breathe glass flames.
** In book 8, Richter has the option to evolve into, among other things, a different species called the Draike, a dragon-human hybrid race now thought to be extinct. He declines the option, as it would be a form that his people would hate and fear.
