This Work Provides YMMV Examples of:
The BZPRPG Itself:
- Arc Fatigue: Unfortunately what happened with the 2007/2008/2009 Santun storyline. Mostly due to two players dominating the story, and then disappearing for long amounts of time, leaving the other players unable to do anything but wait. In some cases, when they tried to move on, were met with disapproval by the two dominating players, but said two players did nothing else to advance the storyline themselves. Eventually the mods had to intervene, bringing the saga to an abrupt and dissatisfying close. What was meant to be something that took up maybe a year at most, ended up lasting three whole years.
- Character Tiers: They definitely exist. In an interesting variation, these are player tiers, coming in the form of a...
- Shipping: An inordinate amount for game with a playerbase generally consisting of teenage and young adult males.

The Old BZPRPG
- Designated Villain: So far, the Administarator—he's done nothing evil (visibly) except keep the peace.
- Evil Is Sexy: Laryna fits this. Oh yes. As does The Lioness. And Caedast.
- Memetic Mutation: Toa Loosk, Toa of Plot Holes. He wields a sclythe and has killed over nine thousand enemies. A product of typo by Shark in an AIM chat. Then Pohaka and Tom basically spun it from there.
The New BZPRPG
- Memetic Molester: Romulus
- Memetic Mutation: MIRACLE CACTUS!!!
- Moral Event Horizon: Joske has crossed this.
- Wangst: Hau does this after being beaten in two consecutive fights and almost being killed due to backstabbing. It's justified, however, in that the kind of selfish angst being bad enough that it was wangst was intentional.
The BZPRPG III
- Foe Yay: Hau and Kriigata's interactions can be read to have undertones of this.
- Ho Yay: Arkrak and Incommodo's declarations of completely platonic love for each other while drunk is this.
- Launcher of a Thousand Ships: Naona. People ship her with Ril, Tillian, Dehkaz, Stronin, Krayn, and quite a few more.
- Memetic Badass: Tillian seems to have become one.
- Memetic Mutation: Many characters seem to enjoy the heavenly beverage that is EPIC TEA!
- Whenever someone mentions something from other parts of the Bionicle storyline that are not know to exist in game the reaction is usually some variant of "Bohrok? What's a Bohrok? Is that some kind of insect or fancy dish?", a quote from one of the GMs.
- Toa Joske's rebooting of the old BZPRPG universe has been referred to as "Joske punching time", a reference to A DC comics storyline.
- Fire. And. Blood.
