* GivingUpOnLogic: The following conversation happens after Clady notices that the foil she gave Sam before a battle has [[MorphWeapon morphed into an easier to wield broadsword]]:
-->'''Clady:''' Sam, where'd you get that sword?\\

* GivingUpOnLogic: Several examples.

Added DiffLines:

** When Mesmerus tells the group that he's giving them time off for Spring Break, and then proves that he is in fact knowledgable about the concept, this trope is the only possible way to describe their reaction.


In Doucette's own words, ''Demon Thesis'' is "the bastard child of ''FinalFantasyTactics'' and ''MSPaintAdventures''", which results in a creation that is half webcomic, half browser game. The game sections are done in [=HTML5=] and Javascript, while flash is used for loading sound files for systems that have trouble using [=HTML5=] audio.

* FishOutOfTemporalWater: [[spoiler:Deveneur was an adult during the [[SevenYearsWar French & Indian War]] who went into a kind of magical stasis after it.]] [[VillainsBlendInBetter Naturally, that doesn't seem to affect him getting around in the 21st century in the slightest]].

* {{Fanfare}}: Every time you win a fight (barring the tutorial), Canadian anthem will play, with Canadian flag. Sam, Alain and even [[ForeignExchangeStudent Clady]] salute. Val on other hand [[EagleLand seems to wave]] ''[[EagleLand American]]'' [[EagleLand flags]], resulting in a glare from Clady.

When Sam heads to the school library for a little after hours research, (thanks to Val, who works the front desk part-time) he sees something nobody had noticed before: there's a spot near the front with a recess exactly in the shape of the totem. When Sam tries fitting it in, suddenly there's an explosion, the four are gifted with ElementalPowers, and find themselves using those powers to defend themselves from {{Blob Monster}}s, TheUndead, living snowmen, sentient plants from another dimension looking to take over our plane of existence, [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent French werewolves]], and more. And all the while, a strange presence called Mesmerus, (speaker of the ArcWords quote at the top of the page) is speaking in their heads, encouraging the violence a little too much for comfort.

Added DiffLines:

* CanadaEh


Added DiffLines:

* GameplayAndStoryIntegration: Done pretty well throughout, but especially in [[spoiler: the last fight with Deveneur, in which it is pretty much a given that you'll throw out more spells than you've ever used before in a single fight, due to the way the arena is set up. After the battle, this is tied into the narrative justification for Mesmerus' entering the world.]]


Added DiffLines:

* PuzzleBoss: Insofar as this is a tactics game, every fight is a puzzle, but both [[spoiler: Deveneur (in both fights) and Mesmerus]] in particular qualify for the trope.
