** As the above implies, the system has a progression for characters who have stuck around for a significant time. The current system is that each character who has been active (largely subjective, but very forgiving, the only exceptions tend to be characters who have literally just been made within the previous 2 months or haven't been used at all) can have one new ability or upgrade an old ability come June 1st and December 1st every year. It is severely frowned upon for veterans to "bully" a newer character, even if it would [[JerkAss make some sense in-character]], though a justified whupping is fine, and often PlayedForLaughs. The core concept is that no player should feel like they don't matter in a situation, so situations are often tweaked to accommodate others. Hyakuji is not hyper-competitive, being more interested in collaborative storytelling as a whole instead of PvP combat roleplays.

* CrossoverCosmology: Definitely, though how precisely the various pantheons work tends to vary, some being closer to their mythological selves, whilst others operate under, say, ShinMegamiTensei mechanics. You've got Babylonian, Celtic, Judeo-Christian, Shinto and a number of others running around. Even the works of ''Creator/HPLovecraft'' shows up, let alone freaking ''DaiZyuJin'' of ''Series/KyoryuSentaiZyuranger''.

* ShutUpHannibal: Done by, of all people, [[TheCutie Hayate Kokuroi]] after a [[BreakThemByTalking particularly nasty session of]] BreakTheCutie at the hands - ahem - [[ManipulativeBastard words of]] [[HumanoidAbomination Simon Morris]]. Would've almost become a CrowningMomentOfAwesome if it weren't for the NoHoldsBarredBeatdown she received from the villain immediately afterward for her troubles.

* UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny:[[invoked]] Given the site's 'anything-goes-rpg' status, and how a number of anime characters are used as the basis of profiles, there's a lot of room to work with. Would you like to see [[Anime/YuGiOh Zorc]] versus [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsJudgment Granteed]]? [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Zack Fair]] versus [[KingdomHearts The Heartless]]? Its happened folks!

* RasputinTheMadMonk: Not only is he here, but he's working for [[Creator/HPLovecraft Cthulhu]].



* XanatosSpeedChess: [[RasputinTheMadMonk Rasputin]] has clearly been taking lessons, if the recent string of Arcadia missions are any indication. Man's certainly determined to bring about TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt.

** And then there was [[http://pastebin.com/6RayYPd0 the troll profile Pancake Mix submitted to the Join forum]] under a proxy-hidden new account, doubling as a ShoutOut to TheTaleOfSephirothGokuTheStampede, gleefully trying to make the worst MarySue ClicheStorm possible. Laughs were had, though the profile wasn't kept around due to the Join forum needing frequent cleanup. That link functions, incidentally, as an example of the site's character template as of writing, as well as a shining example of what not to do with it.

* VillainsActHeroesReact: [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by Lavender during the Hyakuji Festival as she [[BreakingTheFourthWall muses on why the heroes are always the ones taken by surprise]] instead of the other way around.

* {{Expy}}: Takamachi Miyuki shares a host of appearance and personality traits that are clearly inspired by several established characters, but most notably [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Archer]], [[VisualNovel/FateHollowAtaraxia Bazett]] and [[PhantomOfInferno Ein]].

* DegradedBoss: A non video gaming case of this is played up in the first movie event that took place in mid-Season 4. In this mini-plot, a number of [[BigBad Big Bads]] from past seasons were mysteriously [[BackFromTheDead resurrected]] and reappeared to wreak havoc around the city. But while they were [[HeroKiller world-threatening]] [[OutsideContextVillain outside-context villains]] when they first appeared, their resurrected versions were [[VillainDecay considerably weaker]], being reduced to a city-level threat instead of world threat. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in the end however, [[RoboticReveal as it turns out they were just android copies of the original villains]], whose powers are a pale imitation of the originals.

* OutsideContextVillain: Considering that player characters on the site generally operate on PowerLevels closer to "neighborhood crime-buster" or "super spy" instead of "defender of humanity", the season plots involving TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt generally comes across as this trope.

[[http://hyakujihigh.net Hyakuji High School]] is a [[LongRunner long running]] (and still active and growing) anime based RPG, based, believe it or not, on High School life. Unlike normal high schools in Japan, the students [[MagicAndPowers have various gifts]]. [[SuperheroSchool Typically in the forms of superpowers.]] Students from across the world (and sometimes even further) come to learn how to control their gifts, and Hijinx naturally ensue.

Running for ''8'' years, this Play By Post RPG has a long history, and is always accepting new members. It has no set genre, allowing for everything from {{Mad Scientist}}s to Franchise/KamenRider to [[MagicKnight Magicians]] [[KungFuWizard of]] [[ChildMage many]] [[SquishyWizard types]] to be played.
