Added DiffLines:

* AmazonChaser: Mila becomes one if Morgana or Tam Tam transform into tall, muscular monster girls. The same applies to Mila's love interests during her "Strong" transformations.


Added DiffLines:

* BigBeautifulMan: Darius can be transformed into a fat bear by Circe and the already chubby Leeko can become a tall, overweight werewolf or a fat baker depending on your choices.
* BigBeautifulWoman:
** The "Fat Mila" story path has the coins make Mila overweight due to caring and peaceful actions. She admits that her new size causes her some problems but she still loves herself and her body. Demon Mila can also become overweight in one of the epilogues.
** Tam Tam and Morgana can be both transformed into overweight women. Tam Tam has some issues with her appearance but maintains her haughty and confident attitude while Morgana believes that her weight makes her ugly and useless and Mila has to convince her otherwise.
** Side characters like Kate, Circe, Orvia and Sherry also qualify as this trope.


Added DiffLines:

* ChubbyChaser: Mila is one whenever her love interest is overweight. The same applies to her love interests when you take the "Fat Mila" paths.


Added DiffLines:

* YourCheatingHeart: Mila can have sex with multiple crewmembers even when they're in a relationship with someone else. Often, Mila will be caught and her first love interest will voice their disapproval. The only time this hinders the story is if you cheat on [[spoiler:Morgana with Brock because she'll purposely let everyone die in one of the Library's Hell challenges just to spite the two of them.]]


* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:Using the coins to alter the world has this effect most of the time. By removing certain evils from the world, circumstances can be made generally better for everyone, but there are consequences that keep it from being an unambiguously happy ending. Even when you change the world for the better, at least one close friend is killed along the way.]]

* BreastExpansion: Mila's transformations change her physical appearance in a variety of ways, but in the end: the question isn't "Will Mila's transformations increase her bust?" it's "By how much will the transformation increase Mila's Bust?". No matter what path you take, there is a very strong chance Mila's breasts are going to be larger than her own head. Even her least bustiest form is quite a few cup-sizes above Mila's initial form.

** There are also a few 'mini-endings' that trigger with certain decisions, these endings are often unsatisfying and outright [[GainaxEnding bizarre]]. As such, instead of triggering the credits the player is given a single choice: go back to the previous decision and pick a different answer. Some examples include [[spoiler: Mila being turned into a monkey by Circe, changing the past so that she never met the Dread Pirates, and transforming into a sphinx to become the new guardian of the Magic Library]].

** Basically if Mila is in one of her bustier forms and romances someone, this is almost inevitable.

Added DiffLines:

* SlidingScaleOfAntagonistVileness: Actually commented on a few times, particularly if Leeko is having moral qualms. In this case, it more or less goes from best to worst as: Queen Nakhta, who's a {{Jerkass}} but not especially ''evil'' particularly to anyone other than a pirate; Circe, who's a hypocritical WellIntentionedExtremist who plans to [[spoiler:eliminate TheEvilsOfFreeWill]]; and a toss-up between CompleteMonster [[ItsPersonal personal villain]] Rourkie and [[spoiler:Lazerby, whose GrandTheftMe is treated appropriately as monstrous, is an outright murderer, and whose ultimate goal goes beyond WellIntentionedExtremist into creating a nightmarish eternal dystopia.]] Notably, [[spoiler:as the lowest level, Nakhta can get exactly what she wants and still have you get a good ending, unlike the others.]]

* BreastExpansion: Mila's transformations change her physical appearance in a variety of ways, but they all do have one thing in common: they all make her bust bigger. Also happens to the other characters from time to time, one of the most extreme occurs when [[spoiler:Tam-Tam steals from the goddess statue]].

Also happens to the other characters from time to time, one of the most extreme occurs when [[spoiler:Tam-Tam steals from the goddess statue]].


Added DiffLines:

** Pretty much all of Mila's final forms other than Empathetic are this: Angel Mila is a HolierThanThou templar who shows no mercy towards evil, Demon Mila is a crafty and [[GuileHero underhanded trickster]] who breaks her word and shows a similar fervor for punishing evildoers, and Juggernaut Mila is a [[BloodKnight violent warrior]] who racks up an impressive bodycount. However while while none of them are as pleasant as [[NiceGirl Empathetic Milla]], all three forms are still most certainly on the side of good.


* AuthorAppeal: While the game has a great variety in character bodies, there is definite favoritism towards [[BuxomIsBetter women with large breasts]], greatly musclebound characters of both sexes, and especially [[BigBeautifulWoman rotund women]]. If a girl in the game isn't fat, you can almost assuredly make them so in some way. The game isn't a slouch making the [[BigBeautifulMan males]] fat either. [[spoiler: Heck, in one of the epilogues you can make a world where fat becomes the new standard of beauty!]].

Added DiffLines:

* CainAndAbel: Both Nakhta and Bilba claim that this is the case, with the other sister as the evil one. The truth is [[spoiler:neither one is purely good, but Nakhta is somewhat more trustworthy because she favors direct orders and values her family's lives, while Bilba is deceptive and willing to murder her sibling.]] Interestingly, [[spoiler:the addition of Morgana prevents them from having come to this juncture, as she can mediate.]]

Added DiffLines:

* LowFantasy: Let's go through the checklist!
** Setting: A slightly-anachronistic nineteenth century. Magic is very spare and of ambiguous origin, enough so that most people consider it to be a myth. There are multiple species, but they have only normal "human" cultural variance.
** Scope: Though the ultimate decision changes the fate of the world, we're more concerned with the fate of the Dread Pirates themselves, and most of the antagonists only want the coins for their own petty reasons. We see very little of the world outside of that which is relevant to the plot.
** Shades of Grey: Boy howdy! Almost [[GrayAndGreyMorality nobody is pure good or pure evil]], and grappling with morality is a central theme of the story.
** Methods: Most of the time, confrontations are solved through physical violence, though it may or may not be accompanied with reasoning.
** Heroes: The Pirates are, essentially, just ordinary people following their leader's personal quixotic quest. [[spoiler:They are also pawns in a much larger game, the extent of which is not fully made clear even to us.]]


* TrueCompanions: Apparently going to be tested quite a bit.

Added DiffLines:

* ShutUpHannibal:
** [[spoiler:The objective of the SecretTestOfCharacter set in Hell is to test whether a seeker can learn humility, by reading them [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech a laundry list of their failures]]. If Angel Mila is present, she rebuts each and every single point and actually gets ''more'' arrogant than when she went in. (Several other versions of her also rebut these arguments, but in very different ways.)]]
** [[spoiler:Indigo will also call you out on what you've done, even if you went out of your way to not be evil (which still had unpleasant results for some people). You can then do this by refusing to play by the "rules" of the game anymore...or alternately veer it into ShutUpKirk if you actually ''were'' evil.]]


* CruelTwistEnding: [[spoiler:In the path where you sell your soul to Hell in order to complete your mission, you perhaps engage in multiple counts of brutal murder, up to and including regicide...only to be told that ''you never sold your soul at all'', since the "Hell" you visited and the "demon" you spoke to were both illusions! Even if you don't actually kill anyone, Indigo will chew you out for what you ''did'' do (there's no pleasing him).]]

[[SubvertedTrope Of course, you can then go out of your way to prove him wrong by using the coins to open a pie shop to end world hunger and bring about a golden age]].]]

Added DiffLines:

* BoobyTrap: As to be expected in an ancient temple, the statue of Oastarie's necklace being removed causes the door to slam shut. (It's unclear if the coin has been in place to allow this all along, or if it's a more recent replacement for the original ornament which served the same purpose.)
