* KnowNothingKnowItAll: He 'frequently' does this. In fact the strip's title comes from the fact that he says bullshit things he thinks are wise to the stupid and gullible Pig (putting "pearls" before swine).

** He also enjoys annoying Stephan by mocking his failures (being unable to win a Ruben award, getting him into legal trouble (ripping out a drawing of a bike from "Baby Blues" because Stephan can't draw bikes, leading to a angry phone call with the strip's creator), or screwing with the strip (spilling beer on a strip Stephan was working on, blurring the last panel).

* TookALevelInJerkass: After Rat sent letters to her in an attempt to get back together with her, instead of telling him [[spoiler: that she got married and has a kid,]] she throws away his letters, which leads to her [[spoiler: husband trying to kill Rat]]. Then in another strip, she has the GALL to ask Rat to watch her child while she and her [[spoiler: HUSBAND go on a honeymoon.]] Which leads to Rat attempting suicide. She then comes back to tell Rat that she divorced her husband, but when Rat asks to date her again she says that she doesn't want to because she just went through a divorce,[[spoiler: but she is dating other comic book characters, like Dilbert and lies about to Rat, then when he finds out, she treats it like nothing.]] In two more further appearances, she tells Rat that she's leaving him (?) for Ziggy because he's a real man (?!) and then when she WANTS to get back together with Rat, she rejects him because he's working in a clown store. PLEASE Mr.Patis, let someone tell her off.

A group of penguins - including Moe and Saul - living on a tiny ice shelf in the South Pole. Originally their strips involved a polar bear trying to eat them, then we saw them struggling to tell their wives apart.

* MommasBoy: Averted. Goat himself admits that he hasn't talked to his mother for a period of some years, though there is later a week-long arc when he does visit her. She's very critcal and overbearing.
