  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: Chapter 3x in FEF1.
  • Bizarro Episode:
    • Epilogue Chapter D of FEF1
    • The Dream Mission sidestory of FEF2, where most participating players played alternate gender flipped versions of their characters.
  • Fanon: While only a scarce few characters are stated to be directly related to the main cast of FEF1, some of the players like to envision the cast of FEF2 as being descended from the former. However the GM, Haspen, has disproved this theory by posting a detailed list of which families' descendants survived to the timeline of FEF2 and which didn't
    • Leo and Fezz from Gregor x Charlotte
    • Grifen from Olison
      • This one was proven false with the revelation that she is a descendant of Imperial family.
    • Alec from Chris x Ami
  • Fan Nickname: 'Whyverns' for Wyvern Riders and related units, as they are typically associated with extremely difficult battles such as Chapter 9B of FEF1.
    • Quetz's quetzies and Wynne's twynnes from Magi Wars for....well.

    • Alissa often gets called something to do with twerking, such as the Reichtwerker, due to the Memetic Mutation mentioned below.
  • Game-Breaker: Alex, so much so that he was single-handedly responsible for skill nerfs and to the extent that ailments and mages had to brought out to counter him.
  • Godzilla Threshold: For FEF1, Chapter 9B was this. At its worst, more than half of the party was downed and nearing death, only through sheer planning did the PCs manage to survive with no casualties. From that chapter forward, the difficulty necessitated heavy micromanagement by the players.
  • Memetic Badass: The entire cast of Final Hour, primarily due to a mixture of ridiculously lucky growths (Catherine in particular is infamous for triggering her incredibly low Defense growths), being members of one of a very small number of Fire Emblem roleplays to finish and just generally earning their reputation In-Universe.
    • On the Reborn side, Johan Hammerhand from Lost Lands, due to his very character as a Viking Skald who is a Boisterous Bruiser and a wall of muscle and practically oozes Rated M for Manly, to the point that his beard alone is said to be a dangerous weapon on par with everyone else despite Johan himself being otherwise unarmed. Also, Winston from the same game, owing to his first attack being a crit and proceeding from there.

    • Wigglers. Explanation 
  • Moe: Owing to the Loads and Loads of Characters in these games, there are plentiful examples. Some examples include Grifen from FEF2, Seaiga from Magi Wars and Halldora from Noble Emblem 2.
  • The Scrappy: Owing to the nature of Supports allowing for Character Development and the playerbase, there aren't many completely irredeemable characters (even the likes of Theo and Otto are given time to develop). However, Brock in Liberation of Izzarra fills this trope; he is rarely present during group interactions, only popping in to be a Jerkass to his teammates, especially Sharne, and possesses Fantastic Racism towards the Aneccans for an undefined reason. His player attempted to provide justification for his behaviour, which only turned him Unintentionally Unsympathetic, as Brock has yet to display any sympathetic traits outside of Word of God.
  • Shipping: Highly encouraged by the system itself. Supports give PCs a significant edge over enemies, mostly through absurd critical rates. It becomes a very frequent topic in the OOC threads.
  • Squick: Cilia and Dora's relationship.
  • The Woobie: This being a series of roleplays set in Fire Emblem, there tends to be a lot of these:
    • Jerkass Woobie: Shaelynn in FEF6, who comes off as a massive Alpha Bitch. She is a Defrosting Ice Queen who spent a lot of her early time as an Alpha Bitch to the extent that everyone in her social circle hates her and all of her suitors, including Siegfried, ran away from her at the altar. That last one decreased her already low self-esteem to the extent that she became a Broken Bird. To add insult to injury, Iris, the only person she considers to be a friend in the party, is confirmed to have died in the Collapsing Lair shortly before FEF6 was cancelled.
    • Iron Woobie: Many, but Cecil, also from FEF6 is one particular example. Despite being a Nice Guy par excellence, he was still viewed as a massive Cloud Cuckoo Lander during his childhood to the point that he was bullied and avoided with his Only Friend being Alissa, who he's explicitly confirmed to have an unrequited crush on. His own parents don't particularly like him, mainly viewing him as a way of continuing the Ishim line through an alliance with Alissa's family. To add insult to injury, Cecil scarcely gets respect from the group at all bar a few such as Siegfried and Alissa herself, but continues to view the group as the closest thing he has to actual friends (again, except Alissa) and takes it very badly when Iris and Flora (who weren't particularly close to him, mind) are lost in a Collapsing Lair. Despite this, Cecil still remains an incorruptible pollyanna and a Nice Guy who is staunchly loyal to the group.
      • Esther from Liberation of Izzarra also falls under this category. Her mother is killed and her father taken by the Mordoan authorities, the former being killed in a very nasty way by a brutal use of Exact Words. She spends a lot of her time wishing death upon the Mordoan authorities. However, you wouldn't know it from the way that Esther acts.
