Added DiffLines:

* FlatEarthAtheist: Nightsorrow is an atheist, in a world where both magic and gods are real. While he himself has admittedly never had any experience with the gods, that doesn't stop Gastro and Phobia from treating his beliefs as silly superstitions.

Added DiffLines:

* MinorFlawMajorBreakup: She forms a romantic relationship with Klepto, but breaks up with him because he laughed at her over a probably exaggerated story involving Phobia's apparent mother.


* BrainyBaby: Gastro rarely cried when he was a baby. Phobia claims that one of the few times he did, he expressed a philosophical problem, namely the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dream_argument dream argument]], in which you can never be sure all you experience is real, which terrified him. However, Phobia is an UnreliableNarrator and Gastro doesn't buy it.

* AnachronismStew: Banks, dining-and-dashing, EyeBeams, and XP in AncientGreece. Also, the [[http://gastrophobia.com/pix/extras/mapofancientgreece.gif map of Greece]] [[PlayedForLaughs is actually a recolored map of Texas]].

At least some of this is due to time travelers messing with the timeline.

* EvilSorcerer: Lord Nightsorrow's name and general behaviour seem to aim at this trope. However, he's not very villainous and mostly wants to get back to his own era.

Added DiffLines:

* EternalRecurrence: The universe resets back to the beginning once every so often. Each iteration mostly repeats the previous iteration's events, but the iterations have gradually changed over time. TimeTravel mostly involves travelling to a different point in time of a future iteration. The TimePolice try to keep the iterations stable, but there have been slips. Two of them have made Phobia ImmuneToFate.


Added DiffLines:

* OurGodsAreDifferent:
** There are normal gods, which include the Greek and Mayan pantheons.
** There is an older class of deities called the Titans.
** The Old Ones are the most powerful beings known, to which even the gods pale in comparison. Their motives are beyond the understanding of lesser beings and they are believed to originate from a previous iteration of the universe.

Added DiffLines:

* JerkassGods: This ''is'' loosely based on Greek Mythology after all.
** Zeus drives Herakles mad and makes him slaughter his family, seemingly for fun.
** Ares, being the WarGod, naturally enjoys creating wars.


* InterspeciesRomance: Gastro forms a relationship with Princess Starbutt, a magical talking horse.

to:

* InterspeciesRomance: InterspeciesRomance:
** Klepto is in a relationship with Krphxyzwlps/Mania. She is capable of VoluntaryShapeshifting, and usually uses a human female form, but in her natural form, she is a male centipoidal netherbeast, an exotic subspecies of dragon.
**
Gastro forms a relationship with Princess Starbutt, a magical talking horse.

Added DiffLines:

* BestialityIsDepraved: Played with and subverted. As a teenager, Gastro is dating Princess Starbutt the talking horse. Since she's sentient people consider it an acceptable case of InterspeciesRomance, but Sophia assumes she's a normal horse at first- apparently this practice is called "communing with Zeus" in Crete.
