!!Tropes used in ''HoboWars'' include:

* AcceptableBreakFromReality
* AntiPoopSocking: Most in-game actions require ''Awake'', which replenishes over time. Players can use the premium currency to buy more Awake, but only up to a limited number of times per day.
* ArtisticLicense: food can be made from and separated into unpalatable ingredients. For example, the Junior Mints are made with chocolate ice cream, Altoids and a ''bottle of lye''.
* BagOfHolding: There appears to be no limit on how much stuff can be put in the player's backpack.
* BoozeBasedBuff: Many of the mixed drinks give the player a temporary status effect that gives them special abilities. Being very drunk also allows the player to dodge some blows, as well as hit the opponent in a "very sensitive" area, doing additional damage. It also increases the chance at which skills are fired.
* DeathIsASlapOnTheWrist: Players can use the hospital to fully heal themselves at a small cost. Losing to other players does decrease the win rate, but a high win rate has no benefits other than allowing the player to enter Bernard's Mansion for free.
* {{Hobo}}: Duh!

* {{Parody}}: The three adventures are based on ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'', ''Literature/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'' and ''Film/ApocalypseNow''.
