* {{Expy}}: A few of the characters appear to be based on mainstream comic book characters. Glue Gun Gil = Paste Pot Pete, etc. Most notably, THE GODDAMN MAIDMAN! who is basically Franchise/{{Batman}} [[XMeetsY as costumed by]] [[WesternAnimation/TheTick American Maid.]]

* BondVillainStupidity: The Ayakami clan capture Ninjette twice in the series at a high loss of life, but despite her InUniverse reputation of being a dangerous, slippery, and difficult to kill ninja, they let ''both'' chances of killing her slip away by wasting precious panels describing to Ninjette what they plan to do to her.
** They don't ''intend'' to kill her. They've been hired by Ninjette's clan to capture her to be a 'breeding mare', as one of the few female ninjas they have left. [[spoiler:It's mentioned that they are planning to [[FateWorseThanDeath cut off her arms and legs]] to prevent her escaping again since she won't need those to squeeze out kids...]]

* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: We still don't know [=ThugBoy=]'s real name. Also, we learned Emp's and Ninjette's real names as late as #3. In fact, the only names of the superheroes we know are: Theresa (Sistah Spooky), Tommy (Protean), Bob ([[spoiler:Phallik]]), Julie (Plutonium Blonde) and Maria (not totally clear but probably Mother Tongue). Along with a couple of the supervillains, Aaron (Kid Anglerfish) and Jerome (King Tyrant Lizard). But all other real names of supers are unknown either.
** Even some of the supers are only known by FanNicknames, like 'Tower Head Girl'. The one time her name was going to be used it was blocked by another speech bubble.

** And hinted at in the meta-text breaks, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking why Emp's suit doesn't show camel toe]], despite being described as so clingy as to show pubic hair as "latex covered steel wool".

* GratuitousFrench: The White Knight, complete with absolutely horribly mangled gender agreement with articles and adjectives. Notably, Emp gets it right when she talks to him in French, suggesting that it's a deliberate implication of his incompetence rather than accidental on Warren's part.
