** It should be noted that the Gold Digger world at large isn't exactly ''normal''. Hyper-tech, HumongousMecha, and pest exterminators that deal with super-powered rodents are all ''background elements'' of the world. This is best exemplified when KidGenius supervillain Pee-Wee, a boy who has made his own genetically-modified mages, went to an advanced school and found himself ''falling behind''.

* StalkingIsLove: When Ace is too nervous to ask Penny to marry him, she becomes rather obsessed with manipulating him into to doing so. She and Gina impersonate his co-workers to convince him into proposing and [[ControlFreak begin to track his every move]]. Gina begins to question Penny's rather unnerving actions and controlling mindset, and Penny admits that [[LoveMakesYouCrazy she gets paranoid over Ace]]. (Having recently had to dogfight an AcePilot almost as good as Ace himself in a [[Anime/SuperDimeneionFortressMacross VF-1S]] (with [[MechaExpansionPack FAST packs]] to boot!) over him did ''not'' help.) Ace goes off of her grid, reveals that [[KnewItAllAlong he knew what Penny was doing all along]], and proposes to her on his on terms.

** OurWerebeastsAreDifferent: One of the main characters is one of the few remaining were-cheetahs. Other {{werecreatures}} include lions, tigers, rats, and of course, {{werewolves}}. Each subspecies is able to shift between human, animal, and a "WolfMan"-style hybrid form. All of the weres retain their rationality in each of their forms, although they need to learn to control their instincts during childhood. Although the weres are separate species, they are capable of spreading {{therianthropy}} to humans if they choose. (Doing so requires a bite ''and'' an active desire to alter the target's aura.) They were originally created by a wizard as super soldiers before said wizard was betrayed. They have a HealingFactor for everything except attacks by another {{werebeast}}, silver, magic, and Dwarven steel.

* NeverMyFault: A lot of the more irredeemable villains in the series usually operate under this logic. For example, in a rant to her rival, Ace, Dark Bird explains the reasons for her revenge, and a good portion of them were are own fault, stemming her need to prove herself as the world's the best jet fighter. She basically whines that it's Kevin's fault for ''not losing against her''.

* OrcusOnHisThrone: Ancient Gina prevents Dreadwing from taking direct action against Gina and her friends. Indeed, he and Gina haven't even spoken to each other since he returned in Issue 50.

** Once Penny went to a museum to bid for the ancient "Amulet of Embarrassment" that was cursing it. Erwin Talon came by at the exact same time and tried to steal it for his own research, but Penny and Charlotte stopped him. Penny then paid the ''eleven cents'' for the item, since the museum's curator was desperate to get rid of it, meaning that Penny could bid whatever she wanted. Keep in mind that Penny is extremely wealthy, and one of the main morals of the protagonists is supporting museums and archaeology.

* ReedRichardsIsUseless: Gina Diggers has created hundreds of inventions that solve half the world's problems in a week but instead of donating or marketing them she uses them to assist in her archaeology and to help her friends. Mind you, as far as the reader knows, Gina doesn't release the best and biggest of her discoveries to the public since her house and lab are filled with artifacts that otherwise would be in a museum.

** It's sorta lampshaded in 207; when Gina's inventions screw up, they tend to '''really''' screw up.

* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: Frequently averted. For instance, Brianna, the lab accident composite clone trying to kill the Diggers sisters, now their gung-ho sister. Or Charlotte, the instant-grown harpy girl accidentally freed from the control of the time-travelling dog who fired her at our heroes, now co-headliner of a {{WAFF}}y spinoff.

** Tirant deserves special mention. He was part of a family of heroes, and his parents died while they were fighting a super-villain. At their funeral, he noticed that everyone in his family since the 1920s had died fighting for justice. The revelation caused him to reject the life his parents had chosen for him. Instead, he devoted his life to becoming everything a hero isn't. [[spoiler:[[HeelFaceTurn He became a hero again]]... [[RedemptionEqualsDeath mere seconds before his death.]] We'll see if that sticks, since Dreadwing's blackmailing Array into helping him with the promise of resurrecting Tirant.]]

*** It wouldn't be so bad if these things were just done as gags all the time, but often they're ''plot relevant'' in working just like the original reference material. Gina's [[TengenToppaGurrenLagann Lagann]] knockoff's ability to, well, act just like the Lagann is extremely important in the storyline. Same with the [[{{Transformers}} Matrix of Leadership]] {{Expy}} the Edge Guard have (which was transferred in a [[WholePlotReference whole scene reference]] right down to the use of "'Til all are one"). (Granted, the Matrix analogue contained a planetoid-sized spaceship in its own pocket dimension, so it didn't function ''quite'' the same. Still, Fred ''does'' love to riff blatantly on ''TransformersTheMovie''.)
