- Cliché Storm: Full to brimming with every fantasy, anime, and visual novel cliche... and yet it's pretty popular over at the Lemma Soft Forums. People either legitimately like it or they don't care because the freeware otome selection is pretty limited.
- Creator's Pet: Oswald in the first game. He has the longest path, the most choices, and on top of everything, he's the canon love interest. This also counts for Cain and Thanos; as noted on the character page, Cain is the only love interest Oswald approves of. The character type itself seems to be a thing for the writer.
- Draco in Leather Pants: Every single bad guy, plus the guys with... questionable personalities. Not only do the fans ignore the terrible things Oswald and Leon (among others) do in favor of turning them adorable and "misunderstood", so does the game itself. It's a bit disorienting to go from Leon bragging about killing people to acting shy and cute in the span of like two sentences. But seriously, who wouldn't find complete assholes appealing?
- Evil Is Sexy: Let's see... Oswald Leingold and Thanos.
- Foe Yay Shipping: Shea x Seraphina. Their interactions scream Belligerent Sexual Tension. In the Ask-A-Character threads in the forum at least.
- Not so much shipping, as it is canon.
- Narm: All the spelling errors and misused words.
- Narm Charm: The first game features the majority of grammatical errors, which can make it dip into So Bad, It's Good territory at times.
- One sterling example can be seen in the second game, where Thanos is trying to convince Valen that their world runs on Grey and Gray Morality. Aside from the fact that the setting is far sweeter and safer than the games try to insist, the whole thing becomes kind of goofy with this gem of a line: "Do you think you haven't hurted anyone?"
- Nightmare Fuel: Valen's "uncle", Thanos, eats her alive in one of Rot A's Bad Endings.
- Portmanteau Couple Name: Word of God has used the word "Lennos" for Lenarche/Thanos.
- Sheaphina anyone?
- Zephanos is used for Zephyr x Thanos, as a joke.
- Ron the Death Eater: Despite being a demure maid in canon, a certain fan who likes Leon portrayed Melodia as an Alpha Bitch in fanfiction.
- Ship-to-Ship Combat: Thanos x Len or Zephyr x Len? Choose wisely.
- Alternatively, Zephyr x Thanos. Why not?
- Shea x Len or Shea x Seraphina used to have a small war too, because Seraphina was introduced much later since the game was announced, and yet still got to be the Canon Love Interest.
- Leon x Cheryl and Oswald x Cheryl used to have this as well, but most people have decided that Oswald still wins.
