* AmusementParkOfDoom: In issue #45. Yes, a funfair in the middle of a blasted zone full of nuclear waste and creepy monsters is not suspicious at all...



* BarrierMaiden: [[spoiler:Gata is a living portal to a hell dimension where an evil witch queen was imprisoned. She finally turns herself into a statue to block the portal.]]

* {{Cthulhumanoid}}: Gata has suckered tentacles instead of hair.



* DungeonBypass: All the trouble in the Gata arc happens because Finn and Jake bypassed most of the dungeon, got bored listening to the recording of Joshua explaining to them how to get through it, and ended up doing precisely what they shouldn't have done.



* FesteringFungus: In the Gata arc, Jake gets temporarily infected with one.
* FireAndBrimstoneHell: The dimension that [[spoiler:Gata is a portal to]].



* HumungousMecha: Gata built one for BMO.

** In issue #45, most of the story happens first in the lower panels on the page, until the end of the comic when you turn it upside down and read the upper panels in the opposite direction.


Added DiffLines:

* RememberTheNewGuy: The Gata arc plays this for real in-universe tragedy. Finn and Jake accidentally destroy a magic statue that Jake's father hid years before. When they get back to the Tree Fort, they find a teenage girl hero called Gata who everybody but them remembers as their foster-sister who's been part of their family all along. [[spoiler:It turns out that Gata is a living portal created to allow an evil witch queen to escape back to Ooo from the hell-dimension that she was imprisoned in long ago. When Gata discovers this and the witch escapes, she deliberately turns herself back into a statue, and all of the events of the story are erased from history and forgotten.]]

* BrickJoke: In Issue 27, PB calls Finn and Jake to help out with a ghost problem, except that they're not home because they are the ghosts (unintentionally) causing the problem (don't worry, they get better). So, PB is about to call her back-up choice, which Finn hopes isn't a couple of knock-offs named something like Flynn and Blake. It's actually a team like the Film/{{Ghostbusters}}, but guess who shows up at the end of Issue 29, after the storyline is over?
