* {{Adorkable}}: All of the main cast are this in varying ways, but Hotaru is the stand out example; she's [[CannotSpitItOut easily]] [[LuminescentBlush flustered]] whenever romance is involved (''especially'' whenever with Kayla), [[GoshdangItToHeck refuses to curse]], and [[{{Squee}} squees]] whenever she gossips with a friend.


* BiTheWay: Manuel pretty nonchalantly says his prolific dating history includes Eliza, Molly, Maria, Emma, Antonia, Julia, and finally Carlos.
** Jörgen just wants "a million girlfriends and boyfriends".

Added DiffLines:

* FriendToAllLivingThings: Andie has such a way with animals that he's recognized as the animal guy for The Crows. He even gets a horse domesticated again after it was set free during the apocalypse.


* {{Bloodlust}}: Miriam... sure likes seeing Malik operate on people. So much so she's been [[NoodleIncident banned from the surgeries room]].

to:

* {{Bloodlust}}: Played with. Elise is assumed by most to be serial killer material, but given her history, that makes sense. She only really starts getting blood hungry after [[spoiler: her zombification]].
** Played straight.
Miriam... sure likes seeing Malik operate on people. So much so she's been [[NoodleIncident banned from the surgeries room]].


* AlphaBitch: Ana Sophia plays the long con in not showing off her skills, but her genuine one-two of brains and brawn make her formidable. Even ''Hotaru'' fears her.

* ILetYouWin: One of the reasons why Hotaru is in her position of leadership is because Ana Sophia eventually let her win during basketball exercises.



* InTheirOwnImage: [[spoiler: The epilogue states the world eventually rebuilt itself, and Ana Sophia dictates in her dying days that society was recreated as the survivors wished it to be]].

* TheImmune: [[spoiler: Elise and Jörgen's DNA holds the cure for zombie bites, but they refuse to be experimented upon, and live the remainder of their lives away from society]].
* InTheirOwnImage: [[spoiler: The epilogue states the world eventually rebuilt itself, and Ana Sophia dictates in her dying days that society was recreated as the survivors wished it to be]].



* OutlawCouple: While not a couple, Manuel and Miriam are Malik's bruisers and go near everywhere together. Miriam even explicitly says they are "not good people", given all the people they have had to kill to survive.

Miriam even explicitly says they are "not good people", given all the people they have had to kill to survive. [[spoiler: Miriam later wants to be his girlfriend, but can't bring herself to explain her feelings, and tries to rebound with both Malik and Coach to no avail]].


* RunningGag: Malik getting bodied before he has a chance to explain his motives. Both Chau and Hotaru sucker punch him after waking up in his care and Takao shoulder tackles him after hearing his sister might be his prisoner. In every case, Malik had no intention of causing harm, and if anything was trying to help in each situation.

Added DiffLines:

* RepeatedForEmphasis: In attempting to escape, Hotaru threw a chair at Malik's face, and he doesn't let her forget it.
--> "Yes, she threw a chair at my face. I'm aware of her nature."
--> "If you hadn't thrown a chair at my face..."
--> "But you threw - a chair at my face. Thoughts?"

Added DiffLines:

* AffablyEvil: Malik isn't evil per se; in fact, he claims he doesn't want to be the villain. He's just the one doctor left in the apocalypse with medical supplies and rations, and uses this high position of power to wield a near omnipresent control over the survivors.

Added DiffLines:

* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: Elise chops Hotaru's hair out of a zombie's hand and gets turned as a result]].
** [[spoiler: Just as Lyanna is about to be attacked by a zombie, Jörgen follows in his sister's footsteps and takes the bite for her]].

Added DiffLines:

* EtTuBrute: Referenced by name when Kayla prevents Hotaru from getting a gold point from Coach.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Bloodlust}}: Miriam... sure likes seeing Malik operate on people. So much so she's been [[NoodleIncident banned from the surgeries room]].

Added DiffLines:

* TitleDrop: In a flashback, Coach puts the team through a shootaround practice as a way to cool tensions.
