A Punk Rock band that seems to be knowledgeable about and fond of tropes.
A Kiss Could Be Deadly provides examples of the following tropes:
- Anti-Hero: The song "I Can Be Your Anti-Hero, Baby", natch.
- The Hero Dies: The end of "I Can Be Your Anti-Hero, Baby" in an Ironic Echo of the main chorus line."Even heroes have to die."
- Just for Pun: The title of "I Wrote You a Love Song" is a play on Sarah Bareilles' "I'm Not Gonna Write You a Love Song", despite the song having little to do with its pun source.
- Plot Armor: Discussed in "I Can Be Your Anti-Hero, Baby.""Because a hero never dies!"
- Shout-Out: "The Day Convenant Found the Earth" is a reference to the Covenant organization in the Halo franchise.
- Slave to PR: The subject of "Damage Control". "Please don't call just a "small mistake"
Not that you would
You spin the truth and try to pass the blame
While it gets worse"
