!!Mark Delewn and the Space Pirates contains examples of:
* AliensSpeakingEnglish: Subverted for language, as translators have to be used. But played straight for numbers; apparently, all aliens use regular Arabic numerals.
* AllPlanetsAreEarthlike: The one or two planets they visit are pretty much just like earth. Mark worries about how he can breath the air, but Tirt brushes it off with, ĎAirís air.í
* BottomlessMagazines: Played with: The guns have a lot of power, enough for a hundred shots, and a reload of the same, but Mark and Tirt do in fact run through their first magazines and presumably a good bit of their back-ups. [[spoiler: And guess what happens to Officer Tirt ''just'' when he was about to shoot the pirate captain...]]
* HatDamage: Mark accidentally shoots off [[spoiler:the pirate captainís very large hat.]]
* CharacterNameAndTheNounPhrase: Mark Delewen and the Space Pirates obviously fits.
* JumpedAtTheCall: Mark is not only perfectly happy to go on an adventure, he specifically gets Tirt to take him along, even though the space patrolman wouldíve left him behind otherwise.
* {{Parody}}: Zig-zags being a straight Ďkid space adventureí and a parody of one.
* RayGun: Mark and Tirt use a pair of guns that can stun or kill, although, of course, only the former is used.
* ReadingYourRights: At the end Officer Tirt pulls a hilarious version:
--> '''Officer Tirt:''' You have the right to remain silent, but not to throw things, scream, beat your hands against the floor or in any other way make a fuss. Anything you do after this point will be regarded with severity, especially any attempt to resist the arrest! Should you at any time feel you require a lawyer, we will provide one to sue you! You cannot do or say anything that hasnít been authorized by your arresting offier!
* ShootOutTheLock: Lampshaded by Tirt after he does just that and the door opens.
--> '''Tirt:''' Didnít expect ''that'' to work...
* SpacePirates: The ones mentioned in the title, usually referred to as the ''Liover'' pirates.
* SpacePolice: Officer Tirt and the organization he belongs to; the Space Patrol.
* SpaceSailing: Despite being in outer space, the piratesí ships look just like old style pirate ships from the cannon and sails days, with some modifications. Officer Tirt and Mark even lampshade this:
--> '''Tirt:''' Of course it is! What else were you expecting? [''And yeah, heís being serious.'']
--> '''Mark:''' This is ''ridiculous''...
* StealthInSpace: Tirt has the [=SkyGuardian=] cloak itself while they drift into the Ondoog system.
* StunGuns: Tirt orders Mark to set his gun to stun [[spoiler:when they board the Liover]].
* TalkLikeAPirate: The literally only pirate lines used in the entire story are variations on ĎArr!í.
* WallCrawl: The gravity belts Mark and Tirt use allow the user to walk on the ceiling and presumably on the walls as well. Mark uses the trick a few times, most notably to [[spoiler:throw himself around a corner to shoot at some guards.]]
* WretchedHive: Mark quotes the line Ďa wretched hive of scum and villainy at the Ongood system. Considering itís home to a spaceyard that specifically caters to criminals, he probably has a point.
