Tropes In Twilight Valley:
- Cluster F-Bomb: Almost everyone in Twilight Valley utters at least one profanity.
- Dark Fic: A Land Before Time war story.
- Grey-and-Grey Morality: Both Claw Valley and the Great Valley have no qualms about torturing or abusing prisoners of war.
- Harmful to Minors: So, so much. One particularly nasty example involves Ducky being forced to watching a starving Chomper eat one of her siblings and then nearly eat her. They both break down.
- Punny Name: Most of them are puns on actual dinosaur names.
- Shout-Out: Everything to Jurassic Park to Metal Gear Solid to Pokémon and to other fan fics.
- Spin-Off: A fan has made a Command & Conquer themed fan fiction based on Twilight Valley. It is basically Twilight Valley characters and settings transplanted into a Command & Conquer style setting.
- Sociopathic Soldier: Some of the fighters seem to enjoy killing a little too much.
- Weapon-Based Characterization:
- Bare Fisted Dinosaur: Dromaeo (a predatory dinosaur) fights with his bare hands.
- Obsidian tipped spears are quite a popular weapon with the dinosaurs.
- Carry a Big Stick: Saber, a predatory dinosaur, wields a stone war hammer. Wooden clubs (sometimes studded with rock flakes) haven been used by quite a number of dinosaurs as well.
- Staves are also quite popular with the dinosaurs.
- What the Hell, Hero?: Pterano to Littlefoot for beating another patrol member.
