* CrossThrough: With ''WebVideo/AcquisitionsIncorporated''. The teams never meet, but Auspicia Dran, CEO of Dran Enterprises and the BigBad of "The Lost Episode", is the twin sister of Omin Dran, the CEO of Acquisitions Incorporated (and [[WebComic/PennyArcade Jerry Holkins]]' PC). The cloud castle is so wrecked and full of bodies when Force Grey arrive because Acquisitions Incorporated just fought Stratovar and retrieved the other six pieces of the Rod in their own season finale.

* TokenEvilTeammate: Arkhan, in a literal sense, with his alignment being Chaotic Evil. He's beyond doubt a member of the team, however.
* UsedToBeASweetKid: Arkhan the Cruel, apparently. He used to be a Lawful Good Paladin before his Chromatic nature took over and he became a Chaotic Evil Oathbreaker

* TriggerHappy: Whil Whee-Tawn, oh so much. No less than three party discussions about how best to approach a potentially dangerous situation are interrupted by a loud casting of "FIREBALL!" or "MAGIC MISSILE!"

* TokenEvilTeammate: Arkhan, in a literal sense, with his alignment being Chaotic Evil. He's beyond doubt a member of the team, however.
* VillainousValor: Arkhan, again. He's evil, certainly, but he's every bit as brave and determined as the rest of Force Grey to find the Lost City of Omu.

Added DiffLines:

* PetTheDog: Arkhan the Cruel certainly lives up to his name most of the time, but being with the team leads to a couple of these moments, most notably [[spoiler:when he prays to Tiamat to restore Jamilla's hand after she loses it to a trap]]

Added DiffLines:

* EverythingsDeaderWithZombies: The Soul Monger has left many undead roaming the jungles of Chult, much to the chagrin of Force Grey


* BFS: Jamilla's weapon of choice. Which leaves her worried when [[spoiler:she loses a hand in the Lost City of Omu]]

Added DiffLines:

* InkSuitActor: Hitch's character portrait in season 2 looks a ''lot'' like his player, Utkarsh Ambudkar.

Added DiffLines:

* AmbiguouslyEvil: Arkhan the Cruel is part of the team, but he's also an oathbreaker paladin in service of Tiamat, the evil dragon goddess. Those are... ''not'' good credentials.
