- Alternative Character Interpretation - Where to start? Ah yes...
- Madison: Manipulative backstabbing slut who has Dart wrapped around her finger or tragic victim of Viola's wrath forced to take refuge in Orange Star?
- Thor: Tyrant or Well-Intentioned Extremist turned King?
- Chase and Dart: Do they really hate each other or is it just their way of showing their trust.
- Arc Fatigue: SMART and Black Hole are the main offenders. Red Valley was something of an in-universe one for the captive COs.
- Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: There have been a few.
- Madison betrayed Green Earth and was exiled on pain of death. Grey Fox attacked a Blue Moon airbase. Both were seen recently at a large international gathering. Not a batted eyelid in the house.
- Draco in Leather Pants: Chase.
- Estrogen Brigade: Ryouta is the only CO with real world fangirls and the occasional fanboy.
- Growing the Beard / Seasonal Rot - As the RP has progressed, the characters have generally become more interesting as have some of the storylines. Though not all aspects did improve - the Macro Land war and Thor's takeover in Green Earth tend to be polarising, for instance.
- "Holy Shit!" Quotient: The most recent events in Orange Star: Railway stations in Orange Star get destroyed! Liberty Spire gets a chunk blown out of it! The Letter Agents turn out to be on nobody's side! Grey Fox gets killed! Commissar turns out to be a Green Earth agent and then joins the Letter Agents! Meanwhile Suzi is being nice to Madison!
- Ho Yay
- Ken and Greg
- Hanako and Aya
- Launcher of a Thousand Ships - Ryouta. Despite having no interest in sex or romance whatsoever.
- Jerkass Woobie: Chase
- Memetic Mutation
- Marco Land
- "lol" has become a general prefix for any nation that's experiencing inactivity or COs carrying an Idiot Ball.
- Squeak squeak squeak...
- Space ants
- Space aunts, too
- Ascended Meme: Resident artist Pancake-chan draw a picture of Grey Fox wearing a headset microphone but it was Off-Model and looked like a smoking pipe. It actually looked more badass that way and caught on. He has since started smoking a pipe.
- Portmanteau Couple Name - We've got Dartison for Dart and Madison, Kenako for Ken and Hanako, Hanaya for Hanako and Aya, Rioul for Grey Fox (Riley) and Raoul and either Proseph or Jocella for Joseph and Procella.
- The Scrappy - Suzi, before she was Rescued from the Scrappy Heap. Panzer as of late.
- Viewer Gender Confusion - Ryouta and Sigrid have both been subjected to this.
