You know TV Tropes? The wiki that (according to Wikipedia) "collects and documents descriptions and examples of plot conventions and devices, more commonly known as tropes, within many creative works"? Of course you do. Pike has a page there, and it's a bit of fun.
Pike's tropes run the gamut from 'Accidental Murder' to 'The Bad Guy Wins' to 'Yandere,' which I could explain to you but that would involve Magic Fire spoilers and a bit more typing.
Fat Freddy in Whisper of Death? ("In Whisper of Death, Betty Sue's diary mentions somebody named 'Fat Freddy' whom she claims to have destroyed for thinking he was greater than the person who created him. There's no information given as to who or what Fat Freddy was, or what Betty Sue would do with him or how she destroyed him.") That trope is what's known as The Noodle Incident. LIVE AND LEARN.
