Added DiffLines:

* JizzedInMyPants: 2D does this ''three times'' during the campaign when he mentally connects to satellites directing massive amounts of net traffic. 2D barely seems to notice; nobody else is happy about this.

Added DiffLines:

* EmergencyTransformation: [[spoiler:Gepetto]] takes several bullets to the chest and his only hope for treatment is a ghoul doctor, meaning he will be infected and become undead. As such he is turned by a banshee so he can at least appear human.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Squee}}: 2D is beyond delighted when they meet a kitsune schoolgirl who manages to hit nearly every anime stereotype.


* SlippingAMickey: Despite knowing better, Dervish gets dared into downing a drugged drink while in Africa and wakes up naked and chained in a basement. The man who dared him agrees he really was an idiot for accepting the drink. And the booze wasn't even any good.



* WhatAnIdiot: Despite knowing better, Dervish gets dared into downing a drugged drink while in Africa and wakes up naked and chained in a basement. The man who dared him agrees he really was an idiot for accepting the drink.


* PsychicAssistedSuicide: Geppetto, who usus this enough that it's basically his signature move.

* PsychicAssistedSuicide: Geppetto, who usus uses this enough that it's basically his signature move. Outside of Shadowrunning, this is his particular flavor of serial killing.



* SerialKiller: In his personal life, Gepetto is secretly a serial killer. His particular MO is making his victims commit suicide via mental manipulation.



* WickedCultured: Geppetto, who exclusively dresses in nice suits and has very refined taste.

* AWolfInSheepsClothing: Gepetto's civilian ID at the start of the story is an unremarkable middle management job. This hides the fact that he is a magic-wielding serial killer.

Added DiffLines:

* CruelAndUnusualDeath: Gepetto uses his magic to slowly float an enemy into a nuclear spirit's body. Out of character, 2D's player notes it was probably the darkest moment in the game.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Kayfabe}}: After getting drugged and conscripted for an underground fighting ring, Dervish becomes part of a "grudge" storyline between himself and another fighter.


Added DiffLines:

* WhatAnIdiot: Despite knowing better, Dervish gets dared into downing a drugged drink while in Africa and wakes up naked and chained in a basement. The man who dared him agrees he really was an idiot for accepting the drink.

Added DiffLines:

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The first two chapters are "Shadowrun That Guy Storytime" due to the presence of Trout. The fact that the rest of the team has to accept him despite his stunning incompetence and chronic betrayals makes this portion of the read surreal in comparison to what follows.

* BadassGrandpa: Sensei, a blind ork with an entire kitchen's worth of blades implanted in him. He used to be a pitfighter and now he lives in what is basically a radioactive hellzone a la {{Fallout}}, to '''relax''' from his previous life.

* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: [[AvertedTrope]]. Despite being a staple trope of Shadowrunners, who operate only by street name and regularly buy and burn through several aliases, we do learn the name of every one of the team. Also strongly averted by [[TheLoad Trout]], who is known by his real name and is constantly broadcasting it because he's a wanted criminal.

* SatanicArchetype: True to form, The Adversary is this. He works out a deal to possess Geppetto for a few hours a day just for a chance to cause suffering and pain, such as showing up at a frat party to "facilitate a truly epic amount of [[BlackComedyRape date rape]"].

Added DiffLines:

* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Dervish, the Rocket Ork.


* MasterOfIllusion: Bend uses this in a surprisingly creative way: [[spoiler: he entreats with another runner group to AbbandonYourQuest and just leave peacefully with their lives. When they shoot his illusionary double, he reconciles himself to having to kill them and breaks his vow of pacifism]].

Added DiffLines:

* LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt: An opposing runner team gets the crew's files and learns that Bend is an ActualPacifist. They call his Bomb Bluff because he wouldn't kill a dozen men to finish the mission. It turns out, [[spoiler: he gave them one last chance and then went through with it]].
