- Character Blog: His own troper's page.
- Covert Pervert: He mentions being familiar with NWWL in an offhand comment.

- Healing Factor
- Informed Ability: Her Healing abilities are yet to be seen put to use.
- No Smoking: Averted: She's seen smoking a cigarette on at least two occasions, with one instance even having two panels focusing on her throwing away and stepping on the chunk. Especially odd because she's still in High School.

- Bishōnen: after his redesign
- Collectible Card Game: He plays Dawn Of Time, a trading card game. Which is basically a Shout-Out to Yu-Gi-Oh!.

Peter Potter aka Pete

- Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Not an extreme example but compare him to Keysha. There's quite a difference in size.

- Odd Couple: He's Keysha's boyfriend.
- Ugly Guy Hot Girlfriend: He's not really ugly, but as far as the male cast is concerned, he's not very handsome, to say the least. Keysha on the other hand...
