* AnAdventurerIsYou: Being based on Homestuck, each character has a "title" such as Mage of Rage that they grow to understand as they play through the game. Since the game is D&D-based, their title also determines their options in combat.

!!This game provides examples of:
* AliensSpeakingEnglish: Every single one of the intruders except testingBeta and possibly blackTemplar.
* AmusingAlien: Though the intruders (who are mostly non-human) interfere with the session and its players once in a while, they're largely [[PlayedForLaughs played for laughs]] via their attempts to troll and annoy the players.
* AnAdventurerIsYou: Being based on Homestuck, each character has a "title" such as Mage of Rage that they grow to understand as they play through the game. Since the game is D&D-based, their title also determines their options in combat.
* TheAtoner: repentantAntagonist is [[spoiler:actually Alex from a failed timeline. Instead of being pacified by Danielle, he killed her and others and now seeks to atone for what he did by preventing the same thing from happening in other iterations of the session.]] Thankfully, [[spoiler:he was successful in this one.]]
* AnAxeToGrind: Alex's primary weapon.
* BadassNormal: Pretty much everyone.
** EmpoweredBadassNormal: Currently in progress for some, though.
* BerserkButton: Alex's loved ones being hurt or mentioning Jack Noir to him.
** Bringing up Brian's feelings for Mimi to him. Alternately, [[spoiler:just before he was KilledOffForReal, finding out Mimi was manipulating him.]]
* {{BFS}}: Mikhael's sword.
* BigBad: Just as in Homestuck proper, the Black King and Queen.
* BigDamnHeroes: Emily's rescue. DA's reaction, however, was fairly anti-climactic.
* BroughtDownToNormal: [[PlayfulHacker testingBeta]] ''can'' hack the session while in it, he just avoids it due to the possible consequences of screwing up. Now that he's crash-landed on Emily's planet, he can only use his TimeTravel powers to help him.
* MercifulMinion: '''DA.''' Not only does he [[spoiler:pretty much willingly give back Emily, he's also working to overthrow the Queen. And if he'd thought Emily was one of the players, he wouldn't have kidnapped her.]]
* CasualKink: Emily, but she hides it.
* CombatClairvoyance: What Steve's power as the Seer of Hope seems to be. Not to say it's accurate, though.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: All of the Derse agents, even moreso than in {{Homestuck}} itself. Once the players become aware of them, they realize Derse was constantly one step ahead.
* DarkerAndEdgier: SBURB has frightening undertones by necessity, but certain character arcs (like [[spoiler:Alex's brother's execution]] and TE's double-ascension) put this into full effect.
* {{Determinator}}: Mikhael being knocked out, wounded or close to death then healing unrealistically fast is almost a RunningGag.
* ExperiencePoints: Brought up in-story. It's the reason the intruders (except for [[ComicallyInvincibleHero blackTemplar]]) don't assist the main characters in battle: if they did, they'd steal experience from them, preventing them from reaching the highest in-game level.
* EveryoneMeetsEveryone: The current main arc of the story. Now that players are getting used to traveling to the gates, they've decided to band up and take on adventures as a group.
* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler:blackTemplar.]]
* FunctionalMagic: Danielle's [[spoiler:Blood-y Thing. Up until its use, the power-aware players had at best limited version of PsychicPowers.]]
* HairTriggerTemper: Danielle is easily annoyed and often frustrated. [[BloodKnight blackTemplar]] pushes her over the edge when he lands on her planet and proceeds to baby her for the rest of the session.
* HearingVoices: All the Derse dreamers, but most notably Mikhael. [[spoiler:The [[EldritchAbomination voices from outside the session]] told him to kill Alex. He's so far been contested on who to trust.]]
* HopeBringer: Most of the kids are apparently supposed to be this on their Land. Emily's consorts are starving and part of Danielle's Land was burnt to the ground, for example. So far, only Troy has been successful in helping any of the consorts with their problems.
* InfinityMinusOneSword: Possibly the broken Ragnarok.
* ItemCrafting: As expected of a {{Homestuck}}-based story. However, being an RPG (rather than just an "RP" like many Homestuck-based adventures), alchemizing new items, weapons and armor is necessary for survival.
* LostTechnology: The computer stations on every land of indeterminate origin. One of the few advantages the players currently have over the Dersites is they know where a working one is.
* TheMole: DA, an otherwise unidentified agent of Derse, seeks to overthrow the Black Queen.
* {{Mooks}}: Imps. Poor, poor imps.
** MookChivalry: Generally averted. The underlings don't care for this and are smart enough to retreat when wounded or make sneak attacks against players if they can. However, they're limited by the game's combat rules.
* OmnicidalManiac: toenailEater's SuperpoweredEvilSide after his ascension.
* [[OccultDetective Paranormal Investigator]]: What Troy sees himself as.
* ParentalAbandonment: All the kids' guardians disappeared as soon as they entered the session. [[spoiler:With a couple deadly exceptions.]]
* RealLifeWritesThePlot: While most player character disappearances and deaths have been explained or at least [[HandWave Hand Waved]] away, the reasoning was real life interfering.
* RightUnderTheirNoses: Steve attempted this with the agents of Derse. He almost succeeded, but was unfortunately discovered by the Black Queen.
* TheStoic: Claire is the definitive example of this in the session.
* ThatOneSidequest: The Land Quests are turning out to be this. Troy completed one (presumably) through time-travel and leadership. Mimi tried to complete Emily's for her, but came short in planning.
* ThrowItIn: Even more than expected of a game that's highly player-driven.

** TimeParadox: Subverted. He attempted to greet Mimi in the past. However, since he hadn't met her at the time, SBURB didn't let him do that.
* TheWoobie: Alex by far.
