- A Good Name for a Rock Band: The Nasaghasts.
- Punch Dracula.
- Secret Robot Animal.
- Alternative Character Interpretation: Is Doc a hero, a villain, or a Well-Intentioned Extremist? Is King Radical an Anti-Villain, a hero, or a Villain with Good Publicity?
- Complete Monster: Sparklelord, of all people. He's described as "a cross between Genghis Khan, Adolf Hitler, atomic bombs, and Seabiscuit."
- Crazy Awesome: The title character shows moments of being somewhat mentally unbalanced, but always in ridiculously cool ways. For instance, in one arc he is inspired to go rescue his estranged family from a shipload of pirates by a talking roast turkey, who explicitly tells him that it's an illusion. In the next arc, he attempts to find out how a Velociraptor got into his office by busting through a skylight in a warehouse and accosting some random burly types, because his decision-making process is based on "What Would Batman Do?" He comes by this honestly, as his father's favorite way of evading pursuit is to set himself on fire, because, "They can't grab me if I'm on fire." It's gotten to the point where Dr. McNinja is now its god in the Pantheon.
- A good example here. The Amazing Flying Shooting Juan.
- And from that trope's page:
Dr. McNinja: Oh. How stupid of me. That was the sound of chainsaw nunchucks.
- Dr. McNinja jumps off the moon, completely unassisted, carrying a Dracula-bot, and then proceeds to SURF said Dracula-bot to Earth's surface.
- Let's also not forget how McNinja cheated death with a Shut UP, Hannibal and a well-placed left hook.
- In Futures trading, King Radical and Co. managed to print off the entire internet just before the super intelligent dinosaurs shut it down.
- Faux Symbolism: This page
Alt Text: The script for this page reads: "9) The sun rises. Symbolic as hell."
- Foe Yay: Doc and Hortense.
- Also, Doc and Frans. And Dan and Frans. Everyone's gay for Frans?
- Now, Doc and King Radical.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: Kate Beaton's guest comic had McNinja not knowing what do to his potato garden. Flash forward 2 years to the Army of One storyline, where it turns out the clone in charge of learning agriculture didn't make it to the amalgamation.
- For the author, this page, since it was written days before the US President's announcement of the death of Osama Bin Laden, public enemy number one, and happened to be posted twelve hours afterward. For everyone else, it felt like it was Ripped from the Headlines (unless they had only just found out from the Alt Text).
- Anyone remember Archibald, king of the hobos?
- Magnificent Bastard: Gordito, of all people, deliberately puts himself and Doc in danger in order to push Martin, a Hulk Captain Ersatz, past his mental block.
- King Radical. So much.
- Mary Suetopia: The Radical Land, apparently.
- Memetic Mutation: Ninjas can't catch you if...
- Tastes Like Diabetes: The appropriately titled chapter, "Judy gets a kitten". Because kittens are cute.
- Tear Jerker: In the middle of the weirdness and hilarity, we get this. Holy shit, Mongo.
- And now this.
- Took a Level In Jerkass: Mitzi, ever since being inflicted with Mummy's Curse. Most obvious in this comic.
- Willing Suspension of Disbelief: The sheer ridiculousness of most of the comic's storylines means that most fans eventually reach a point where its too much, and they can't believe it any more. The recommended therapy is to keep reading; it will pass in time.
