!! ‘’Sweet Dreams’’ provides examples of the following tropes:

* ArtificialLimbs: Tabitha has a prosthetic left arm starting just below her shoulder.
* BigFriendlyDog: Pippa is a Saint Bernard who’s large enough for Lorelei to ride around on (at least while she’s transformed.)
* CanineCompanion: Lorelei has a service dog named Pippa, though it’s yet to come up in the comic precisely what Pippa’s assistance tasks are.
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Purple for Tabitha, blue for Charlie and pink for Lorelei.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: We’ve yet to see anyone with magic powers who doesn’t fit this trope when they’re transformed, including animal companions.
* EverythingsBetterWithSparkles
* Familiar: All magical girls and sorcerers appear to have one, they resemble small, cartoony animals with a colourscheme and visual motifs (such as stars or lightning bolts) that matches the girl they’re connected to.
* FrillsOfJustice: The Starry Trio’s outfits all have simple lace trims on most of their garments.
* HandicappedBadass: The main three girls are {{Magical Girl Warrior}}s and all appear to be disabled in some manner. Tabitha has a missing arm and a prominant scar through her, potentially blind, left eye, Charlie uses a motorised wheelchair, and Lorelei has hearing aids and a service dog.
* HenshinHero: Well, it ‘’is’’ a magical girl comic.
* MagicalAccessory: The main girls’ {{Power Crystal}}s take the form of chokers when transformed, and more simple necklaces when not. Valkyrach’s seems to be a belt buckle.
* MagicalGirlWarrior: Fighting monsters which according to the site’s ‘about’ page are the physical manifestations of people’s nightmares is the nightly duty of the setting’s magical girls and sorcerers.
* PowerDyesYourHair: Transforming changes a girl’s hair and eyes from their natural colouration to match their colourful {{Transformation Trinket}}.
* ScarsAreForever: Tabitha has a particularly noticeable one both in the prologue and the first chapter, which is set after a 3 year timeskip. Valkyrach is practically covered in them, though they don’t look as deep as Tabitha’s one does.
* ShockAndAwe: Valkyrach is able to blast blue lightning bolts at her enemies.
* TransformationNameAnnouncement: Shown on [[http://sweetdreams.thecomicseries.com/comics/23 page 23]] for The Starry Trio.
* TransformationSequence: Pages 23-25 show one off for the main girls. [[http://sweetdreams.thecomicseries.com/comics/24 Page 24]] is probably the best single-page example though.
* TransformationTrinket: The girls hold theirs aloft before transforming.
* WakeUpGoToSchoolSaveTheWorld: Schoolgirls by day, {{Magical Girl}}s by night.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Transforming causes this to apply to all the magical girls we’ve seen so far.
