** ''Music/Friday'': Which seat will you take?


* '''Atomic''': A [[TroubledButCute brooding outsider and delinquent]] who has been suspended a [[ExaggeratedTrope total of 174 times]]. He [[Tsundere doesn't take to the player character]] and believes they don't believe to be at the academy.

Added DiffLines:

* BaitAndSwitch: You're allowed to name your Player Character anything you want, but most of the characters reject this name and refer to you as Balyssa anyway.


Added DiffLines:

* PairTheSpares: Deconstructed and subverted in Honey's route.


Added DiffLines:

* SelfDeprecation: There are periodic jabs at both the game's medium (visual novel) and the game itself. Louisiana Rub's entire ending revolves this for the game.
* ShoutOut: In spades, to several hot wing restaurants, to [[LegallyBlondeTheMusical]], [[HighSchoolMusical]], and even [[Friday]].

* '''Teriyaki''':
'''Teriyaki''': A [[TheQuietOne quiet and brooding]] student who's maybe [[TheComicallySerious a bit too serious]] for the setting.



* BilingualBonus: More like quadrilingual if that was a term that was used. Original Hot speaks a total of five languages in the game, including French, Spanish, Chinese, and Japanese. The end credits are also sung in Mandarin Chinese with no subtitles. That most of the non-English is illegible to many players is the point.

to:

* AffectionateParody: Of the visual novel and dating simulator genres.
* AuthorAppeal: The credits attributes the game to the author's love of wings.
* BadEnd: If none of the Wings are attached enough to you to go to the dance, you get one of these. Several of the endings in the routes proper may also count.
* BedroomAdulteryScene: Not shown, but described by Spicy Kochukaru over his former Soulmouth Steve.
* BigNo: In a comedic example, one of Spicy's voicelines is this.
* BilingualBonus: More like quadrilingual if that was a term that was used.

* DeconstructorFleet: Of both the visual novel and dating simulator genres and also several romcom and teen movie tropes.
* DysfunctionJunction: Each of the Wings have some personal problem they're working through.
* FantasticRacism: Lemon mentions that the term "chicken wings" is a slur if non-wings say it. [[spoiler:Mr. Fry suggests fear of this as the reason why he hid Balyssa's heritage from them.]]
* ForeignExchangeStudent: Original Hot is one.
* Foreshadowing: Quite a bit for several of the routes and major twists.
** [[spoiler:Garlic marries a fry in Honey's ending and mentions feeling oddly close to you despite not being attracted to humans. This sets up his attraction to fries.]]
** [[spoiler:Garlic being drawn to you even though he's not attracted to humans foreshadows that the player character may not be fully human.]]
** [[spoiler:Honey straight up mentions he thinks Cajun is trying to kill him.]]
** [[spoiler:Teriyaki and Smoke0 both attempt to drop some hints about the true nature of the school, hoping to convince you to help them.]]
** [[spoiler:Cajun hints at having a more nefarious goal and is disappointed if you seem to disapprove or misunderstand him.]]
* GayOption: The player character's gender is never revealed, so it's possible for any of the routes to be gay, assuming hot wings have analogous genders. The human portrait version makes this more explicit.
* HiddenDepths: Despite the off-the-wall premise, each of the Wings actually has a storyline that extends beyond them being hot wings.
* ImAHumanitarian: In one scene, Atomic tricks Spicy into eating friend chicken. It [[Understatement strains their relationship]].
* LetsPlay: Three, from AliszPlays, AwsuQ, and SkinnedTeen.
* LostInTranslation: The name of the credits song requires an understanding of Mandarin Chinese to get the pun.
* MediumAwareness: In spades, particularly from Hickory.
* MultipleEndings: As is expected of the genre.
* PunBasedTitle: Wingman is both a dating term for someone who helps you get a date, and also a reference to literal Wing-men.
* Squick: The repeated mentions of wing-sized toilets.
* SurpriseCreepy: Some of the routes [[spoiler:in particular Cajun's, Teriyaki's, and Smoke0's]] may count as this.
* YouAllLookFamiliar: The [[PlayerCharacter player character]] mentions having difficulty telling Wings apart and instantly feeling bad for it.
