* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: In the [[http://www.gocomics.com/snowflakes/2015/07/06 very first comic]], no less.
-->'''Lu''': I wish I looked like Colette Hintz. She would've gotten picked. Look how big her pigtails are!\\
'''Priti''': Pfft. Those are fake.


* LiteralCliffhanger: While ActingOutADaydream, Wray ends up falling down a snowbank, falling down a cliff with only a stray branch keeping her from plummeting down.

* MaliciousSlander: When it looks like Lu and Sloan are about to win the election, Priti comes up with one last plan to sabotage them: hiding Greg’s ring on Sloan and telling the nuns she stole it. [[spoiler: this backfires horribly when, during the election, Enzo says ''she'' stole it instead. This indirectly disqualifies her team, allowing Glory to win the election.]]

* HairTriggerAvalanche: One happens after Wray and Greg are chased out of a cave by a bear. [[spoiler: this also ends up being what brings them back to the orphanage, as the snow carried the plane they were in until it crashed into the side of the building.]]

** This is also done earlier, where Priti tries to convince the public that voting for Lu [[ItMakesSenseInContext will get them eaten by yetis.]]


Added DiffLines:

* MomentOfWeakness: Wray has one after being scared during a LiteralCliffhanger. [[https://www.gocomics.com/snowflakes/2016/01/19 She’s not pleased.]]
--> '''Glory''': Great job Wray! You were so brave!
--> '''Wray''': Silence! Warriors don’t cry! And I cried!
--> '''Greg''': Achilles wept for Patroclus.
--> '''Wray''': If you believe the media!


Added DiffLines:

* SnowballLie: To try and get votes away from Priti, Sloan ends up lying to the public to earn their trust, slowly relying on bigger lies to keep Lu’s popularity from waning. This gets to the point where, despite Lu’s protests, Sloan still tries to carry on lying due to the lies “carrying them this far”. [[spoiler: This backfires on her during the election, where the kids realize they were deceived and begin to ask questions neither her or Lu can answer.]]
* SnowballFight: Weaponized by [[spoiler: Priti]], who uses it to try and usurp power from the winner of the election and prevent them from fighting back.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Turncoat}}: Johnny becomes one to Priti when it looks like Lu and Sloan will win the election. However, this backfires when Enzo reveals the information he’s giving the two is fake.


* LivingMacGuffin: Greg's father is one to him, with finding him serving as one of his main motivations



** Greg's father acts as a LivingMacguffin.


* BadassBookworm: While she doesn't fit this trope in the physical sense, Sloan can be pretty damn awesome sometimes.
* BigFun: Glory. Others don't always think so, however.
* BrilliantButLazy: Sloan. She reads academic literature for fun and even ends up becoming a political strategist during the orphanage’s election. At the same time, though, she prefers to [[https://www.gocomics.com/snowflakes/2015/11/15 “sleep in till noon and call people idiots”]] and [[https://www.gocomics.com/snowflakes/2015/07/24 hates getting out of bed more than once a day.]]



* CloudCuckooLander: Glory.
* ComedicSociopath: Wray.



* DeadpanSnarker: Sloan.



* GreenEyedMonster: Enzo is ''very'' envious of Greg, to the point of insanity.
* InsaneTrollLogic: Priti, on several occasions.



* OnlySaneMan: Sloan gets put in this position a lot, though she's not without her own neuroses.



* StalkerWithACrush: Enzo takes this to levels that are truly frightening.


* MagnificentBastard: Wray is lovable for her intensity, and Priti performs her evil with such style that you can't help but root for her sometimes.

Added DiffLines:

* RashomonStyle: Both Wray and Greg have different accounts on [[spoiler: how an airplane crashed into the side of the orphanage]]. Wray’s take, in typical [[ChuuniByou Wray]] fashion, is a fantastical take on the matter complete with fighting were-yetis, shooting lightning out of her face, and ripping off video games she played. Greg’s take, however, is an entirely truthful retelling.

Added DiffLines:

* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Or, in Greg’s case, [[https://www.gocomics.com/snowflakes/2015/12/20 why did it have to be frost spiders?]]

Added DiffLines:

* BrilliantButLazy: Sloan. She reads academic literature for fun and even ends up becoming a political strategist during the orphanage’s election.

Added DiffLines:

** Greg's father acts as a LivingMacguffin.


** Downplayed after the winner is chosen, however. Although their role treated as important by the other kids and they're given the chance to make important decisions, not much is shown due to [[spoiler: Priti attempting to overthrow them]].
