Added DiffLines:

* TheHorde: The Gegners, though it's subverted. Though they're pictured and described as a hoard of hairy savages [[spoiler:they actually operate a very adept spy ring and the classically beautiful Serena Ives is one of their operatives. Arnold Boden, another of their operatives, notes himself that they use their reputation to their advantage.]]

Added DiffLines:

* GameMod: A fan-made mod called [[https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1884758461 "Hip to Be Squire"]] pushes the game into 18+ territory. The original game does have mature content; but due to existing Philippine anti-pornography laws (Yangyang Mobile is a Filipino game studio, by the way), lines had to drawn.


'''''Love Esquire''''' is a VisualNovel/RPG made by Yangyang Mobile, creators of VisualNovel/TheLetter, released on October 8th, 2019. The game has suggestive content, but is not outright explicit ([[BleachedUnderpants at least not without the mods made by the developers]]).

explicit.

Added DiffLines:

* HelloInsertNameHere: You input a name for the squire at the beginning of a new game, but while the text will read the name, the character voices will address the protagonist as "Squire".


Added DiffLines:

* NiceGirl: Amelia is cheerful and and supportive (even if she does tease the squire at times), and Kamala is also very cheerful and friendly. [[spoiler:Surprisingly, despite first impressions, Vel also turns out to be a nice girl when she isn't putting on a "drinking and fighting girl" act to emulate her mentor Matilda.]]


Added DiffLines:

* SweetAndSourGrapes: [[spoiler:Vel's route ends with her putting aside her grudge against the Alkosi nation in favor of just rebuilding Bordemer instead. In return, Kamala apologizes and makes Vel the new captain of the joint Caerulian-Alkosi fleet, so Vel will be able to personally ensure the incident of Bordemer is never repeated. So Vel doesn't get revenge, but in return she gets a happy outcome.]]


* AnimalMotif: Intentional or not, the squire keeps calling Vel a shrimp.



* BullyingADragon: For most of the intro arc between them, the Squire constantly antagonizes Vel with challenges after one arm wrestling match forced him to drink so much milk he puked it back out. This is despite the fact that Vel is strong enough to break his spine, and at one point tried apologizing to him and he was too mad to have any of that.



* SnipeHunt: Hugh convinces the Squire to go on expeditions in the forest to find the rare "Ocarina of Love", an instrument said to bring people closer together. [[spoiler: It turns out to be RealAfterAll when all the slimes, wolves and bandits have been coordinating together because of the ringleader using it to brainwash them.]]

Added DiffLines:

* GodzillaThreshold: Caerulia and Alkosi have a troubled history to say the least, but the Gegner horde is so extremely dangerous that if Caerulia and Alkosi don't work out an alliance for a shared future, the Gegners will destroy both kingdoms and make sure no one in either kingdom ''has'' a future.

Added DiffLines:

* BigBad:
** Of the larger plotline, the Gegner horde is a dangerous threat, which is why Caerulia and Alkosi are attempting to work out an alliance to deal with them.
** Of the "Ocarina of Love" subplot, [[spoiler:Varetear RavenwayxXx.]]
** Of Amelia Boden's route, [[spoiler:the Gegner "sleeper agent", who turns out to be Serena Ives.]]
** Of Beatrice Du Cae's route, [[spoiler:Marshal Flinkman.]]
** Of Kamala Copperheart's route, [[spoiler:Lord Draig.]]
** Of Giselle Renouve's route, [[spoiler:none, though Varetear makes a cameo trying to kidnap Giselle at one point.]]
** Of Vel Scharfe's route, [[spoiler:Slim, a former resident of Bordemer just like Vel.]]


** Amelia Boden is normally a bright and cheery girl, but [[spoiler:in part she's putting on a brave face and smiling all the time since she thinks it'll make her more like her deceased mother, who died of an illness.]]

** Amelia Boden is normally a bright and cheery girl, but [[spoiler:in part she's putting on a brave face and smiling all the time since she thinks it'll make her more like her deceased mother, who died of an illness. Then to make matters even worse, if you play Amelia's route, Kamala eventually reveals that the "medicine" Amelia's mother thought she was taking was actually poison, so her mother didn't actually die of an illness after all; she was ''murdered''.]]

Added DiffLines:

* AdultFear: [[spoiler:Amelia's mother used to insist she was fine even when she was sick, and she was always working and doing her best; her mother seemed to be invincible. Then she died one day, and ever since then, Amelia has been absolutely terrified of either losing someone to sickness, or losing the Squire to being killed in the upcoming war. Amelia has been putting on a brave face and trying to be helpful to the Squire all this time to distract herself from her fear of losing him. After Amelia and the Squire talk it out, she decides that if the Squire can participate in the war despite being afraid himself, then Amelia can face her fears of sickness and war head-on.]]


* GuideDangIt: Amelia Boden's route can be the hardest to unlock, because while her first and second arcs can be completed without difficulty, you need to do something counter-intuitive to unlock her third arc: [[spoiler:most of the time a girl's next mandatory/required event will be marked by a red !. But after Amelia's "finding medicine in the apron" event, the next event you need to unlock does ''not'' have a red !: you need to wait for a day when Amelia visits the Infirmary between 1:00 and 4:00, and visit and talk to Amelia then.]]

* IShallTauntYou: If the squire wants enemies to attack him instead of Hugh during a turn, he can use the "Taunt" command to first stick out his tongue and then slap his rear.

Added DiffLines:

* ForgottenChildhoodFriend: Or in this case, [[spoiler:"forgotten person from the same village"]]. If you play a certain route, you find out at the very end of the route that [[spoiler:the reason both the squire and Giselle have similar "village was attacked by bandits" backstories is because they were both from the ''same village''! Specifically, they were both from Waldorf before bandits raided it.]]

Added DiffLines:

* TheTeetotaler: Giselle doesn't drink anything alcoholic, and thus will never visit the tavern (though in one scene you still get an affection boost if you offer her a drink, even though she refuses). In a later scene, [[spoiler:when Donis is offering to take the squire and Giselle out for drinks in the future, Giselle says "Apple cider for me!"]]
