TropesEdit

AEdit

  • A Match Made in Stockholm
    • Corbyn and Casimyr.
    • Possibly Casimyr and Sasha.
  • Above Good and Evil
  • All Powerful Bystander
    • Nyx. Need I say more?
    • Celeste.
    • Aurora, if you believe she has the power she claims to have.
  • Anguished Declaration of Love
  • Attractiveness Isolation

BEdit

  • Bad Future
    • When isn't there one??? The Shattered Mirror and Fractured Mirror realities, which are close parallel, Dark Tendril dimension... even the AU's
  • Beast and Beauty
  • Becoming the Mask
    • Corbyn is going to realize just how good bad can be... (as a Reverse Mole, Going Native...)
    • Moritori Rex is starting to slip into this
    • Asura-Ista: Ista falling prey to what was once a construct of his own mind...
  • Birds of a Feather
    • How Kormandyr and Vladimyr became such strong friends? Bonding over their homophobia. ^^

CEdit

  • Cardiovascular Love
    • In a metaphorical sense, Kormandyr's death was subsequently followed by Vladimyr's; thought it was blamed on the poison he was instructed to take for a painless death, he really OD'd on painkillers, and his true death was through quite a literal heartbreak in his artificial heart...
  • Childhood Marriage Promise
    • Turbo promised Ana
    • Karma-Ze promised Vashi

DEdit

  • Deconfirmed Bachelor
    • Years, Kormandyr remained unmarried. Decades. >>
  • Divorce Requires Death
    • Suspiciously Corbyn and Sher-Re's death....
    • Dr. Zachary attempted this after his wife cheated on him...
      • With one of the surgeons that ruined his life. That's pretty harsh, after all...
  • Dying Declaration of Love

EEdit

  • Enemy Without
    • Anti-Jack, and to some extent, inverted with Anti-Cecil
  • Even the Wombats Want Him
  • Everyone is Gay
    • Sadly used often in this community; several specific examples of limitations include the females....
    • And the three declared homophobes in the series: Dr. Zachary, Kormandyr, and Vladimyr...
      • And even they aren't safe....
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good
    • Lystiz seriously is the spokesperson for this trope
  • Evil Twin
    • Every Moebian around
      • Inverted in the Kintobor/Robotnik separation
    • Possible conclusion from Moritori Rex and Tobor's appearances...
BAWWW

FEdit

  • F*** Your _______
    • Turbo and Ana both blew up in their native tongue like this
    • Same thing probably with Black Fate, but in a Badass Sass manner
    • Negative Egon is on course like this every day
  • Foe Cooties
    • Averted with Asura-Ista, though Wechnia thought he would treat him like this after rape by Xenta
  • Freudian Excuse
  • Friends With Benefits
    • What did you think a "Friend Act" was, anyway??? >]

GEdit

  • God Emperor
    • Enerjak in the Fractured and Shattered Mirror Continuities
  • Goshdang It to Heck
    • The forum actually depends on a very strict censor, so most of the curses are bowdlerized. The word 'damn' has been allowed as the highest allowed curse word, in both its intended form (we have a demon in our midst), and as a curse.
    • Inverted in the fictions, where everything is free game.
  • Grand Romantic Gesture
    • Kormandyr's romantic life and marriage was filled with these
    • Every day between Emi-Li and Dr. Phineas was led like this
    • Early in his pre-accident courtship, Dr. Finitevus bestowed a generous amount of these on Egon
  • Grow Old With Me

HEdit

  • Happiness in Slavery
    • Turbo is happy in his position in the Chalice Heart...
    • Ana subverts this, and any mention of any Saranj in slavery will cause him to blow his top and kill people
  • Have I Mentioned I am Heterosexual Today?
    • Kormandyr and Vladimyr are very much friends, and love to spend time with 'friend-acts'. Is not homo-sex.
      • Very not homosex. >[
    • Turbo, despite looking... really, really gay sometimes. There's a reason for this, of course.
    • Black Fate too... somewhat... um...
  • Her Heart Will Go On
    • Like when Corbyn lost Sher-Re...
    • And Phineas lost Emi-Li
    • Dr. Zachary's love for his wife, and also for Phineas - neither of whom died though
    • Turbo actually subverts this as he forgets about everyone he has loved and lost pretty quickly....
  • Home Sweet Home
    • Aleksandyr in Skarak's cave
    • Wechnia feeling at home in Cthura's underwater mansion...
      • Though he also made a home for himself in Asura-Ista's ruined temple...
        • (Possible indication of his fate???)
      • ...And the labs where he worked with his OTP, Xenta.
        • Who raped him. Wise choice, Wechy.

IEdit

  • I Will Protect Her
    • Vladimyr's determination to protect the fully-competent but effeminately-built Kormandyr
  • In Love With Love
    • Definitely Dr. Zachary, who was willing to forgo his own personal safety and his sanity for 'love'
  • In Love With Your Carnage
    • Supposedly, this was what induced Corbyn to change sides
    • Same thing with Fiona and Scourge the Hedgehog, though definitely not to the same degree as the standard trope
    • Everyone wants to provoke Dr. Phineas into this, though no one moreso than Dr. Finitevus who seems to take things.... to an extreme with his father...

JEdit

KEdit

  • KillJoy
    • Talking in a literal manner, the Tumblr!Egon seems to take a great deal of pleasure at times from his list of successful kills
      • Although in light of recent events, it appears that this may have been a result of some sort of influence; outside of such influence, he definitely does not condone such activities

LEdit

  • Leave the Two Lovebirds Alone
    • The Brotherhood of Guardians cooks this up to leave Spectre and Dr. Finitevus alone together
      • Even though this is the man that was initially responsible for kidnapping them and threatening horrific harm in experimentation
      • And he raped Spectre earlier
      • And he's evil
      • And this sure worked great, because Thunderhawk and Knuckles still got the other end of the stick >>;
  • Legacy Character
    • Enerjak
    • Sort of Asura-Ista since it appears he might have possibly been Baccha and is definitely reincarnated as Pumpkin; 3 separate people retaining his personality and traits.
  • Like Father, Like Son
    • The appearance pairings between Dr. Phineas and Dr. Finitevus
    • The appearance pairings between Kormandyr and Corbyn
      • Also, the naming pairings between these four, mainly in how similar each is
    • The similarities in appearance between Black Doom and Shadow the Hedgehog
      • Although this appearance similarity didn't occur until Black Doom's resurrection
      • Equally strange is how Fate happens to be hedgehog... before Doom?
  • Love Across Battlelines
    • Dr. Zachary and Anti-Spectre who not only are of different dimensions, but different sides
    • Corbyn and Casimyr
      • Even though Casimyr is only using him
        • Corbyn still pulls a traitor though
    • Moritori Rex and Tobor, played straight and inverted
  • Love at First Punch
    • Corbyn... after severe pummelling by Sasha, one choking episode with Casimyr is enough for him~
    • Moritori Rex for Guardian Hawking, also in a Meet Cute; this could be due to the significant amount of brain damage he underwent as well as a result of the stunt
  • Love Before First Sight
    • Dr. Zachary with Anti-Spectre in chat before ever meeting him in video chat.
    • Karma-Ze and Vashi get together on their first meeting.
  • Love Confession
  • Love Hotels
    • King Mephiles once made an off-hand comment that these are the only hotel rooms aside from Royal Suites and Honeymoon Suites that he can really feel comfortable in
    • Vladimyr and Kormandyr both experienced these, once, separately, and together
    • Saranj were often offered as fixtures or options in room choice - like an attendant, or purchasable like costumes, bondage gear, and aphrodisiacs
      • This was until Ana rescued them
    • Ana himself has frequented these places often, but this was where he gave Turbo their consummation
  • Love is a Weakness
    • Lystiz proclaims this as his stance
    • Ateri, despite clearly being in love with the aforementioned hedgehog; perhaps this is intended ironically?
    • Casimyr
  • Love Makes You Evil
    • Corbyn
    • Possibly what happened to Dr. Finitevus; since he was pure and full of love before the accident, and became inverted...
      • This is actually an important point in Guardians, where the Legion was able to blackmail Finitevus and eventually induce such high levels of despair in him by the murder of his assistant that he powered through the Chaos Energy transfer and blew up the facility.
      • All future assistants were then treated with verbal and physical abuse culminating in termination or quitting their job
    • A case of brotherly love gone foul in Guardians as well; watching his brother die and being rejected as a sibling were both cases that forced Dimitri into an extreme trauma where people died and he assumed the mantle of the Enerjak merely so he could wreak an appropriate amount of destruction parallel to his rage.
  • Love Martyr
    • Possibly the only reason Corbyn would remain by Casimyr's side
    • Similarly with Egon staying loyal to Finitevus despite the abuse he goes through
  • Loving a Shadow
    • Dr. Zachary seriously fell for a person over the internet in one series. Pretty pathetic.
      • Their name was Spectre. Which is like the shadowy ghost. Oooh.

MEdit

  • Magic From Technology
  • Meet Cute
    • Moritori Rex is first introduced to Guardian Hawking by being dug out of wreckage and rubble by him~ <3
    • Phaedonas meets Dr. Phineas by dragging him out of a fountain in the middle of winter and keeping him warm
    • Not technically a meeting, but Dr. Finitevus and Ashi-Le went on a scientific trip in Soumerca and Finitevus was hounded by a hoard of butterflies the entire time. This was well documented and served as a way to bring them closer together and have something to laugh about for years to come.
  • My Master, Right or Wrong
    • Egon is doggedly loyal
    • Possibly Poe

NEdit

  • Naughty Tentacles
    • Enerjak.
    • Cthura, but in his case, he's just curious about everything he sees.

OEdit

  • Our Love is Different
    • Corbyn, you're falling prey to this and you don't even know... >>;

PEdit

  • Parental Incest
    • The House of Zura thrives off this
      • Though they treat it as affection, and in truth, there's not much that's usually done: Kormandyr 'petted' Corbyn, Phineas offered Finitevus loving licks to the cheek
    • Shadow the Hedgehog and Black Doom partake in several affairs with one another, though it's kept as a secret around the Comet.
      • To everyone except the soldiers on board, it's pretty obvious that something's going on between them, though.
      • These affairs do escalate to rather high displays of romance, but when they do realize just how scandalous their relationship really is, they blame it on Shadow's 'strong and everlasting' devotion to his master.
  • Psycho Ex-Girlfriend
    • Jack originally saw Emi-Li's ghost as this
    • Dani-Ka, Kormandyr's one night stand who produced Corbyn for him still stalks him and so forth...
    • Dr. Zachary's wife

QEdit

REdit

  • Red String of Fate
    • This occurs to every second romance in The House of Zura; one relationship for producing a child by, and the other for eternal love
  • Regretful Villain
    • Egon has claimed to have provided mercy-kills for his mother and coworker Ashi-Le, and may have murdered more, but does not remember these circumstances very well. When he does remember, he regrets his actions intensely.
      • Recent posting has actually brought this under doubt; the mun states that she wanted to have a false layer of memories and the basis for some very serious questioning that would lead in to discovery of some experiments that occured while he worked in the labs.
      • However, his mother and Ashi-Le are still dead...
  • Reincarnation Romance
    • Kormandyr and Vladimyr were said to have about 4 unsuccessful versions of this previous to their current form
      • But then a moooost successful version when they die and reincarnate as Karma-Ze and Vashi (one the "daughter" of Flynn, the other origin unknown)
  • Resurrection Romance
    • Egon returning to Dr. Finitevus after a violent death; apparently, love conquers all....
    • The way this played out on Tumblr, however, is more of a horror-story than anything
      • The unfortunate Dark Tendril reality dampened this paranormal romance into an acerbic face-off with neither side willing to cede or come to terms with their emotions.

SEdit

  • Samus is a Girl
    • The fun reveal of Kormandyr in an inversion to this
    • Similarly with CoCo Cabina in an inversion >3
      • Much to his family's horror
  • Selective Amnesia
    • Egon's murders.
    • Dr. Finitevus' former self. (More in that he doesn't want to acknowledge it.)
  • Serial Romeo
    • Dr. Zachary is implied to be a hopeless case of this
    • And so is Corbyn
    • Dr. Finitevus (Egon, Specter, Thunderhawk, Knuckles, Orbot, and Eggman!); this seems like a case of spreading himself thin, but it really appears that he had legitimate love or similar emotions toward each of these mates previous to breaking with them. And in three cases, there were marriage proposals.
      • Egon never actually proposed. But he did find the ring in his dresser drawer...
  • Sickeningly Sweethearts
    • Kormandyr and Vladimyr; especially with their pet names
      • But they AREN'T together...
        • ...supposedly.
  • Sleep Cute
    • Kormandyr is adorable... but he's just tiny
    • Turbo and Ana, for all their toughness, are really quite 'kawaii' in bed
  • Soul Jar
    • Asura-Ista's infamous mask
    • In reality though, almost every god could be considered a temporary soul jar for the souls themselves; the souls do not destroy themselves or move to another plane, but occupy another form and continue in existence...
  • Suddenly Sexuality
    • Kormandyr's revelation after his memory alterations are undone

TEdit

  • Talented Princess, Regular Guy
    • Kormandyr is in every way this (including overly feminine characteristics), but don't call him a princess
  • The Missus and the Ex
    • Subverted and inverted with Vladimyr and Dani-Ka, where he just found her to be a pissy beyotch; inverted in the fact that Vladi's the missus
  • There is Only One Bed
    • Played straight with Kormandyr and Vladimyr at their first meeting
      • Though they had separate hotel rooms on separate floors
        • But both were too drunk to even try to get there
    • Subverted in Egon's second encounter with Dr. Finitevus where he ends up sleeping on the floor
      • Assuming ghosts sleep...
  • They Don't
    • ...Egon is thrown under the bus by Dr. Finitevus, even though he'd be loyal and pining for years...
    • ...Dr. Finitevus does almost the same thing to Spectre
    • ...Ana never found/hooked up with Turbo
    • ...Dr. Zachary never found happiness after his wife, but, for that matter, didn't kill her, either
    • ...Asura-Ista still pulls a turnabout on his only friends
  • Token Evil
    • Egon would seem to be the only normal one in the group...
      • Until his true self emerges...
        • Or was it really? He's back to normal again, and seems mightily confused by the decline on his blog and the missing memories! So was it mind-control, self-censoring memories, or replacement by Anti-Egon?
  • Trigger!
    • Dr. Phineas' dreadlocks. Seriously. Touch them.
    • Mentioning Iblis to Mephiles at any point and time
    • Take a jab at Dr. Phineas' dead wife, Emi-Li. Call her stupid and that's the last thing you'll ever do.
      • Particularly insult her reproductive qualities, compare her to a female canine, insinuate that she was the illegitimate product of an unwed couple, suggest that she would prostitute her body for money, or that she would enjoy such extramarital excursions, and, finally, make a comment about Phineas still making time with his wife, though she is very dead.
    • Calling or mentioning anything about homosexuals to Kormandyr
  • Token Minority Couple

UEdit

  • Unholy Matrimony
  • Unbroken Vigil
    • Vladimyr, cute as it is, for both of Kormandyr's pregnancies
      • Though he did have good reason, as Korma sort of died after the second one
  • Unrequited Love Lasts Forever
  • Uptight Loves Wild
    • Most of the relationships here have this to some degree

VEdit

WEdit

  • Was it All A Lie?
    • Casimyr is going to do this to Corbyn. Watch for it. It will be crushing.
  • What Is This Thing You Call Love?
    • Ateri claims this, but only halfway pulls it off...
  • White Mask of Doom
    • Asura-Ista, unequivocably
      • But Esytar-Nu owned it before him....
        • TAINTED BY EVIL FROM THE START???
    • Seh gets a mask of his own at some point
    • Iblis is also given a mask
    • We see Asura has one set aside specially for Enos-Jakosha...
  • Why Would Anyone Take Him Back?
    • Finitevus... you did sort of blow it big time...
  • With This Ring
    • Dr. Finitevus: SO FREAKING CLOSE
    • Vladimyr to Kormandyr
      • But then he claimed it was all fake...
        • OR WAS IT? Korma kept the ring, after all, and the marriage was legal in all binding senses...
  • Women Prefer Strong Men
    • ...and so does Kormandyr
      • .... and Corbyn, apparently, enough for possible betrayal?
  • Working With the Ex
    • Emi-Li forces every potential lover of her husband to go through this with her - so, Dr. Phineas is often left in this situation

XEdit

YEdit

  • Yandere
    • Amy Rose.
  • You Are Too Late
    • Ateri, discovering Lystiz's "marriage"
    • "Curing" Sasha
    • A certain Chalice plan was not only enacted, but 23 years ago, and has been occurring all along. >]
  • You Are Worth Hell
  • Your Cheating Heart
    • Asura forces Dr. Phineas into this matter
    • Dr. Zachary while he was still married by the Anti-Spectre
      • Though it was online, so it shouldn't really count
    • Enos-Jakosha got famously in trouble for this
      • Even though his wife was certainly hitting these charts

ZEdit

In-JokesEdit

  • Creeper
    • IRL EXAMPLE: Jack is frequently this toward Trac with her random and intense spurts of uninitiated rp that go to such extremes that Trac doesn't know whether she's serious or not, coupled with intense but vague-in origination declarative openings, usually in all-caps, and a sudden and quick reversion to normal without any warning, leaving Trac to wonder if Jack really is schitzo.
