*CovertGroupWithMundaneFront: The Hero Registrar is revealed to run out of an art museum and at least a few galleries across the city. [[spoiler: Abigail offers Ghost a form to sign on as a recognized superhero, but on closer inspection it appears to be an application for a [[https://tapas.io/episode/2085874 private auxiliary]] position with the museum. The form still has a space for an alias, so this seems to be an attempt at disguising the Registrar’s paper records.]]

* BadassNormal: The Hourglass often trounces his hero rivals despite not displaying any superpowered abilities.
* BrokenPedestal: [[spoiler: Liam looked up to Cirrus in addition to Clash as a youngster, only to feel abandoned and betrayed upon their reunion years later, when he examines why she never reached out to him after the Disaster.]]

* KidSidekick: *GentlemanThief: Hourglass often spouts off cutting one-liners and clever insults at the heroes he faces, and deftly maneuvers his heists to be as flashy as possible.
*GrinofAudacity: Airstrike and Hourglass both engage in battle with wide, confident grins. Both of them are used to fighting for the spectacle of it, though each of their cocksure attitudes likely contribute heavily to their smiling faces.
*HarmlessVillain: Bank and Vault are two mismatched cartoon villains with a gang of faceless bank robbers. Both are loud and ineffective at their jobs, celebrating their minor victories to comedic effect, before being swiftly dealt with by a few passing heroes. The Hourglass may also fall under this trope, as he is practically harmless, though he is much more adept at making a sneaky getaway, and appears to keep far more threatening company.

* OpposedMentors: Both Clash and Cirrus appear as mentor figures with opposing personalities to young Liam in flashbacks. Cirrus appears more stern and disapproving(moreso to Clash himself), whereas Clash is shown to be somewhat more irresponsible.

* PowerIncontinence: [[spoiler: Ghost has been seen to have involuntarily levitated objects when under significant distress.]]
* StrongAsTheyNeedToBe: Perhaps a reversal of this trope: Airstrike is seen struggling during the Chapter 1 heist against her rival, The Hourglass, who has no known superpowers. It has been mentioned by the author that Airstrike will often [[https://tapas.io/episode/2012070 pull her punches]] against Hourglass to make their escapades more entertaining to onlookers.
* SuperRegistrationAct: Both Airstrike and Racer are mentioned to be operating under a “Hero Registrar.” [[spoiler: Later found to be run by Abigail Hoang, aka Cirrus.]] It is not clear as to whether or not the Registrar is regulated by the government [[spoiler: as Director Hoang runs it out of a privately owned art museum and independent galleries all over the city.]]

‘’[[https://tapas.io/series/Wake-of-the-Clash/info Wake of the Clash]]’’ is an ongoing page-a-week superhero Webcomic written and drawn by Yoshiko Agresta (yoyoyoshiko), first uploaded in 2019 on Tapas and Smackjeeves, and later to Webtoons.

The story is centered around a young man, Liam “Ghost” Durand, who was once the sidekick of Beacon City’s most loved hero. Eight years prior to the main events, Liam witnessed his mentor lose control at the hands of an unknown villain and destroy much of the city’s serene waterfront district, permanently changing the world of superheroes before vanishing. Now Liam finds himself on a less-than-solo hunt for his former father figure along side his super-friends Airstrike and Racer.
Wake of the Clash swings between the comedic and dramatic sides of superhero comics, and places its more bombastic, hopeful heroes right alongside more cynical ones.
