** When in a submarine headed for Singapore, Gilbert asks if [[ShaunOfTheDead anyone would like a peanut]]. Appropriate, given the [[ZombieApocalypse setting]].

Added DiffLines:

* BrainComputerInterface: The ANGEL system obviously qualifies.


Added DiffLines:

* DysfunctionJunction: Most, if not all the valkyries suffer from some kind of psychological issue(s). Justified, considering the setting.


Added DiffLines:

* ImpossiblyCoolWeapon: The V.A.L.K. units themselves qualify. Many armaments they carry qualify. RuleOfCool makes it all okay.


Added DiffLines:

* PressGanged: Itís implied in some characters backgrounds that GAMA wasnít always the most honest to potential Valkyries about what they were signing up for when they Ďaskedí them to join, and in the case of the born-in valkyries asking wasnít involved at all.


Added DiffLines:

* TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture: Set in 2076, though less technologically advanced than it may be due to the ZombieApocalypse.


* TalkingToTheDead: Allison revisits the graves of her lost teammates and makes a one-sided statement.

** The Samoan chief. A few suspicious-looking guys show up on his doorstep and claim to be VALKyries, and then angrily claim that the ''actual'' VALKyries are Proteus spies. [[TooDumbToLive He believes them.]] [[SarcasmMode Smart guy]].

* RagtagBunchOfMisfits: Though they don't have the lack of resources usually associated with this trope, the VALKyries are still a dysfunctional, anger-prone group of teenagers. {{Lampshaded}} by Vance, who thinks of the team as "fidgety little kids", and Allison, who calls everybody "nugget" because of their immaturity.

* SacrificedBasicSkillForAwesomeTraining: Allison is completely focused on being a better VALKyrie, and has NoSocialSkills as a result.

Added DiffLines:

* HeadbuttingHeroes: Allison and Charlotte play into the Personality Clash version of this trope. The most notable is after the Cape Town mission when Allison scolds her squad for acting care-free by reminding them that their victory came at a high price. Charlotte blows off Allison's words by saying that she is wrong and that [[TheyKnewTheRisks those who died knew what they were getting themselves into]].

Added DiffLines:

* ChildhoodFriends: Val and CV are the pair that really shine with this trope.

Added DiffLines:

* OnlyFatalToAdults: [[ExaggeratedTrope Exaggerated]]. The nanomachines aren't just fatal to adults, their fatal to children too, however they can be used in-utero. In effect this trope is played straight, since those who have the nanomachines have grown to teenagers by the time the story takes place.


* GoodIsNotNice: Despite their TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior (see below), most of the team is committed to wiping out the infection and/or just being selfless in general. The thing is, a lot of the character's are more willing to do outright villainous things to achieve those goals. A prime example is Jack: Feeling [[TheAtoner guilty]] about the [[NukeEm Samoa]] incident, he planned to unite the ([[RagtagBunchOfMisfits obviously]] [[WeAreStrugglingTogether dysfunctional]]) team [[spoiler: by ruining Allison's reputation and forcing her to fight Jason and Anna.]]

* ThePsychoRangers: Proteus's Inquisitor team in the Vancouver mission. And boy, do they give the Valkyries hell.



* TragicKeepsake: Allison still has the dogtags of her dead teammates.
