This fic contains examples of the following tropes, in addition to those already present in the source material:
- Action Girl: Renamon.
- Affably Evil: Stalkermon generally depicts this. Starts to slip when his plans fall apart at the end, however.
- A Handful for An Eye: Renamon uses this during one of her fights with Stalkermon in order to escape from him.
- Better to Die Than Be Killed: Renamon appears to choose this rather than let Stalkermon have the satisfaction of killing her when she's faced with a No Escape but Down situation.
- BFG: Stalkermon's main weapon is a massive rifle that can function as both a sniper rifle and a machine gun.
- Blood Knight: Stalkermon.
- Book Ends: The story starts and ends with Ruki riding a train.
- Cold Sniper: Stalkermon, again.
- Egomaniac Hunter: Stalkermon pretty much epitomizes this.
- Even Evil Has Standards: Stalkermon takes Renamon's tamer hostage in order to force Renamon to comply with his demands, but has no intention of harming her so long as Renamon abides by the rules Stalkermon sets forth.
- Evil Gloating: Stalkermon tends to be prone to this.
- Gratuitous Japanese: The author went with the original Japanese names for the canon characters and Renamon's attacks due to his preference for the original version of Tamers versus the English dub.
- Heroic BSOD: Renamon suffers a brief one after being forced to abandon her tamer.
- High-Class Glass: Stalkermon's attire includes a monocle, which also shows information collected from his Searcher Bot probes.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: One of Stalkermon's attacks on Renamon results in her tamer being freed, which is promptly followed by the climactic Curb Stomp Battle.
- Infant Immortality
- Killed Off for Real: Stalkermon.
- Machete Mayhem: Stalkermon carries one as a melee weapon, and has no qualms about using it, either.
- No Escape but Down: Happens to Renamon at the end of the Chase Scene.
- Pistol-Whipping: Stalkermon hits Renamon in the gut with the handle of his machete when she tries to attack him while he's laying out his plans for her.
- Shown Their Work: Just as in Tamers, the locations depicted in the story are based on real places on the island of Hokkaido in northern Japan. The author made extensive use of YouTube, Google Earth, and Wikipedia when doing research for the story.
- Shut UP, Hannibal: Renamon does this to Stalkermon a couple times; the first time results in her getting knocked flat on her back when she tries to attack him mid-speech.
- Stuff Blowing Up: Most everything hit by shots from Stalkermon's gun explode on impact. His Searcher Bot probes also explode when they're destroyed.
