Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Many of the most popular characters are from series you've never heard of in your life.
  • Ho Yay/Les Yay: A little here, a little there...
  • I Am Not Shazam: It used to be common practice to refer to muns by the name of their most well-known character, rather than by their actual names. However, since chat died and the game moved to Plurk for OOC discussion, this practice has lost popularity.
  • Memetic Mutation: Far, far too many to count. The most enduring may be "Oh tosh, I'm arriving!", much to all the British players' chagrin.
  • Memetic Sex God: After an incident on Roleplay Secrets involving an Insult Backfire, the taken characters list came to be nicknamed "list of members of Karen's harem."
  • Rescued from the Scrappy Heap: Twilight, thanks to a cast that developed the characters beyond a Sue and her harem and sent the plot of the books Off the Rails.
  • Sequel Displacement: This game expresses a localized version, where Mobile Suit Gundam 00 has Sequel Displaced the rest of the franchise. Even though it's a very big, very old, and very popular metaseries, and even though DDD's had a Wing cast for ages along with its 00 cast, when Plurk or chat discusses a marathon session of "Gundam", one can almost be assured that 00 is what they mean. The same thing is happening with Macross Frontier.
    • Sequel Displacement is undoing itself at least in the Gundam scenario, now that there's been a mass enabling of people to watch and app from Wing.
  • Tear Jerker: Put it this way: almost all of the muns are cruel, cruel people who love causing this. It helps that characters can move through canon as the game goes on, so canon deaths, trauma, and angst can have just as big an effect as they did in their original form or worse.
