* ActuallyADoombot: Gerber managed a ''pre-emptive'' example: According to his super-secret Howard and Comicbook/SpiderMan[=/=]DestroyerDuck and Comicbook/SavageDragon crossover (in which both sets of characters raided the same warehouse in different books), the ''real'' Howard actually ended up in the Image Universe under the name Leonard (although ''officially'' Leonard the Duck was an entirely creator-owned character) while the Howard left in the Marvel Universe for other writers to use was just a clone.

* ButtMonkey: In the 2015 series, Spider-Man goes through a series of {{Heroic BSOD}}s thanks to Howard that culminates in issue #5 with Howard "saving" him by pulling his foot out of a tiny amount of rubble. Spidey is so distraught over "owing Howard one" that the end of the issue has him hugging [[ComicBook/TheFantasticFour Johnny Storm]] for emotional support.

* TheFriendNobodyLikes: Howard is widely known in the superhero community, but he's not particularly ''liked.'' ComicBook/SheHulk is practically a SitComArchNemesis. The only known exceptions are Beverly Switzer, [[Franchise/SpiderMan Aunt May,]] Tara Tam, ComicBook/DoctorStrange and [[ComicBook/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy Rocket Raccoon]]... is it me, or is Howard's next birthday party going to be awkward?

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: The comic ran on the tension between the funny-animal kiddie comic it appeared to be and the actual very-for-adults comic it was. As a result, double entendres, cleverly concealed X-rated references ("Phelch" the space turnip) and near-obscenities ("Big clucking deal") were regular features. Not to mention the occasional implication that Howard and Beverly's relationship went beyond the platonic (leading to a particularly uncomfortable moment in the live-action film).

** As detailed under CelebrityParadox, the 2015-16 run culminated in Howard discovering Mojo was transmitting his adventures to the multiverse. And then he hired someone to put him in some outrageous stories... two purple aliens with AuthorPowers [[AuthorAvatar named Chipp and Jho]] (who work next to [[Comicbook/BlackPanther Ta-Nehi-C]], [[Comicbook/TheUnbeatableSquirrelGirl Ry-N and Air-Icka]]). Who arrive at Earth and [[RageAgainstTheAuthor fight Howard and Mojo]].
