** Makes sense because John is facing mental strain from remembering his collective memories and cats are a way to relieve stress.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: The very first timeline alteration we see shows an alternate version of the Legends (where Sara was killed by the unicorn) being gun-ho about killing magical creatures outright. [[RedHerring It's implied Sara dying is the cause,]] only it becomes more apparent by the end that Sara had nothing to do with it: in all of the new timelines, the Legends always refer to Charlie as their "white whale", showing her significance to their attitudes towards magical creatures.

* ItsAWonderfulPlot: Downplayed: Charlie ultimately realizes the reason why, in ''every'' alternate timeline, the Legends are gun-ho about killing magical creatures is because ''she'' never made them realize there was another way.

Added DiffLines:

* CurseCutShort: Played with. John sees his teammates as puppets and says "What the F..." only to be interrupted by a break, but then comes back in mid-word with "... raggle Rock is going on here?"

Added DiffLines:

** It's also briefly PlayedForLaughs in one timeline where the only plaque is for [[ButtMonkey Gary]]: Charlie briefly considers leaving it there before giving in and altering the past again.


* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: The Legends have missed calls from Barry, Oliver, and Kara which Nate rightly deduces it must be the "[[Series/{{Elseworlds2018}} annual crossover]]". Nate even jokingly asks whether they'll change costumes this time.

Added DiffLines:

* TookALevelInJerkass: In every altered timeline, the Legends up taking the genocidal approach with magical creatures without Charlie being there to steer them. In at least one timeline they elected to ignore a distress call from Barry and the others without a care for the consequences.

* AchillesInHisTent: In the first alternate timeline, Ava responds to Sara's death-by-unicorn by adopting a goth style, holing up in her office, and listening to the Indigo Girls over and over again. The possibility of changing history to save Sara convinces her to handle her grief in a slightly more... [[{{BFG}} constructive]] manner.



* AmbiguouslyGay: Charlie is really quite pleased to hear Zari call Amaya (in whose appearance Charlie is stuck) "really hot".

* AmbiguouslyGay: Charlie calls Gideon's avatar "smokin'", and is really quite pleased to hear Zari call Amaya (in whose appearance Charlie is stuck) "really "very hot".



* BalefulPolymorph: All the transformations are courtesy of the Fairy Godmother. Zari is a cat because of her and Sara, Nate and Ray all were turned into puppets in one timeline after she bonded to Mick and he called them "Puppets of the Time Bureau".

Zari is a cat because of her and Sara, Nate and Ray all were turned into puppets in one timeline after she bonded to Mick and he called them "Puppets of the Time Bureau". Constantine briefly changes Zari back into a human, but quickly reverses the spell when Zari makes it clear that she won't settle for anything less than restoring time to its previous state.



* {{BFG}}: After being roused from a depressive state in the first alternate timeline, Ava grabs a massive shotgun to assist Charlie.



* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: Zari assumes that Charlie's fondness for Amaya's appearance is because Amaya is "really hot".

* HeartbrokenBadass: In the timeline where Sara is dead, Ava is, initially, left in a massive depression. Upon finding out that Charlie intends to avert Sara's death, she instead grabs a shotgun and helps Charlie fight her way through the Time Bureau.



* KickTheDog: The Custodians are savage towards any magical creature, but turning the Kaupe into a rug is especially petty and cruel.



* MoralMyopia: Charlie is initially fine with Zari being stuck as a cat as long as she has her own powers back. She quickly changes her tune when she sees the other results of Constantine changing time.



** Zari is physically affected by the changes to the timeline, but remember how things are supposed to be.

to:

Added DiffLines:

* SanitySlippage: Having two timelines worth of memories jammed into his skull drives Constantine half-insane, and it only gets worse as he and Charlie bungle their way through fixing the various problems that crop up as a result of their meddling in the timeline.


Added DiffLines:

* TastesLikeFriendship: Mick and Ava bury the hatchet over a bag of macaroons.


** Charlie's attempt at being Sara while trying to talk to the "Custodians of Chronology" falls apart almost instantly due to one ''minor'' contradiction: Sara died in this timeline.

** None of the deaths are particularly great. Sara is unicorned; Mick, Ray, and Nate are choked to death by the Fairy Godmother; Ava is killed and then replaced with another clone; Gary apparently accidentally time couriered into a volcano. The Custodians also die in a fight between themselves and the Time Bureau.

Added DiffLines:

* ForgotAboutHisPowers:
** During the shoot-out at the Time Bureau, Nate seems to forget that he can become bulletproof and gets killed for his trouble.
