Deus ex Machina
Deus ex Machina, Machinima series
- Arc Fatigue: As the finale drew nearer and nearer, the videos became shorter and shorter and split into "parts" and even "acts".
- Cliché Storm: Being a "dark and edgy" superhero series will lead to a lot of cliches being present, including but not limited to the hero having bad publicity, the villain asking the hero to join him, said villain being a figure of high authority, etc.
- He's Just Hiding!: A lot of people assumed that the brief nightmarish shot of Michael's decapitated corpse indicated this. Jon confirmed that it meant nothing and that Michael was indeed dead.
- Everyone is in MJOLNIR armor, even old homeless guys.
- Despite wearing helmets with their entire head clearly covered, characters will spit at others in spite.
- The use of barrels as gravestones.
