* Chucky Billy gets a very impacting one in one recent 3-panel ending strip where he brings a flower to Rosie Lee and Rosie Lee saying that she feels she doesn't deserve it because of how much she nags him for his "rude ways", Chucky ponders for a bit and says "Yeah, you're right." before taking the flower from her and walking away. The reason this is awesome is because many stories had Rosie Lee selfishness give Chucky trouble, such as when she [[KickTheDog emotionally manipulated Chucky into climbing a cliff to get a flower...just so she could play "loves me, loves me not" with it and then acting surprised when Chucky is understandably livid about it (note that he fell off that cliff a LOT for that flower), ditching Chucky for Genesinho at many instances just because Chucky couldn't spend time with her regardless of his reasons]] among other things and Chucky never really called her out on it. While many stories portray them as a PuppyLove couple, for the times Rosie's flaws end up making her treat Chucky very unfairly, it is very satisfying to see the usually passive NiceGuy stand up to her in such a small, yet impacting manner.
* Jimmy's plan to defeat his creation, the Super Jimmy, by using his greed to lure him into a pitfall trap filled with liquid plaster and then freezing him in place through the usage of a blowdryer. Note, the pitfall was only made with a penny, the shaved off plaster layered over a special paper belonging to one of Mauricio de Sousa's employees, a spoon and hot water from a thermo, both belonging to a Mauricio de Sousa Productions intern. Yet with these limited resources and his knowledge of himself, flaws included, Jimmy put together a plan that defeated a ''Super Hero''. When Jimmy puts his mind to make plans out of good intentions, the kid ''delivers''.

'''Monica:''' Why not?\\
'''Jimmy:''' Because it's a bit to the left on the map, and...\\
'''Monica:''' If you're gonna make a fuss over that... ''(calmly walks toward the mountain)''\\
'''Jimmy:''' What does she think she's gonna...\\
''(cue very loud earth rumbling sound coming from off-panel; Jimmy is completely dumbfounded, while Monica comes back, wiping her hands, still calm)''\\
'''Monica:''' There. Is it in the right place now?\\
'''Jimmy:''' Uh... Er... I... I... think so...\\
'''Monica:''' Great. Can we get going?

* When Maggy becomes a TeenIdol and breaks down from the job's pressure in front of the fans that are accusing her of being selfish and arrogant towards them, Todd ([[{{Badass}} Guy never runs out of those, does he?]]) steps in and calls them all out on how they think they're entitled to Maggy's attention because they're her fans and how they're never satisfied and just demand more and more from her without considering her own feelings and personal problems.

* In Issue#94, Maggy calling Monica out on her being stubborn about using bracers despite the harm it is causing her and Nick Nope encouraging her behaviour. Later on, Jim's YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre speech to Monica about how there is more to her identity than her teeth.

** Isabel gets another one when her jealousy gets the best of her yet again. She freaks out at Bucky because he was holdings hands with a girl and strolling with her and the girl kissed him at the end. She clobbers Bucky before he gets a chance to explain himself. Isabel runs into the girl, who wears sunglasses and dresses fashionably, and openly mocks her choice of attire. The girl is none other than Dora, the ''blind'' girl that dresses the way she does as a way of coping with her blindness. Isabel then realizes that Bucky was holding her hand because he was helping the blind Dora get home. After a powerful MyGodWhatHaveIDone moment, Isabel apologizes to Dora and Bucky, owns up to her mistakes and learns to not jump to conclusions. Quite the CharacterDevelopment for the ClingyJealousGirl.

** Smudge gets two in the same issue: The first one is when he calls Dustine out on how she previously bitched at the gang for endangering Smudge's life and yet later on bitching at Smudge for only coming back to talk to her after she was caught in a fire and he did nothing to save her (He actually was, as Captain Fray); The second one is when after Fray reveals his powers, Smudge angrily shouts at him that he could have a chance to start anew when he lost his powers, but he chose to stick to his evil ways. [[spoiler: This becomes VERY tragic when the Inverse Tower arc reveals that Captain Fray is indeed Smudge's uncle and that he got his powers through a DealWithTheDevil after his parents were killed in a landslide...because if he hadn't, the responsible entities have gone after Smudge instead.]]

* When Monica and Nick Nope are kidnapped and forced to work in a circus and Nick Nope can't call for help because whenever he tries, the resident esper blocks his mind, he manages to get Maggy, Jimmy and Smudge's help through morse code...on ''baloons''. Jimmy also gets credit for being the one to figure it out.

** Another huge one was Monica ''finally'' calling Nick Nope out on his stalwart stubborness about always having to go against the norm and imposing that on her without thinking about her own feelings, which has been a major issue between them for the entirety of their relationship.
