* BrokenAesop: An InUniverse case manifests as Feminine TV, the location of Omega Zell's day job. The channel is hinted to be quite feminist and shows "women can be as good as men" documentariess... alternating with [[GirlShowGhetto lame-sounding shows that are stereotypically associated with female audiences]] such as interviews of good-looking male actors or senior cooking contests.

* SnowballLie: The comic points out more clearly than the two other media that [[spoiler:Master Zen]]'s FrameUp of Gaea ended up being this via the existence of Gaea Worshipper's guild. Gaea herself starts maintaining it the second she finds out about it, because allies in an enemy faction can't hurt.

The comic to the eponymus [[Series/{{Noob}} web/TV series]] and second addtion to the ''Franchise/{{Noob}}'' franchise written by Fabien Fournier (the series's scriptwriter and director) and drawn by Philippe Cardona and Florence Torta, the authors and illustrators of ''Manga/SentaiSchool'' who also happen to play Bartémulius and Nostariat in the webseries.

!!The ''Noob'' comic provides examples of :

* AdaptationalHeroism: In the novels and series, Tenshirock decided that all/most of the guild was off the hook during book / Season 3 due to them indirectly serving his cause. In the comic, Gaea negociated that immunity as part of their business relationship, while the extent to which she cares about her guildmates is usually ambiguous. The only part of the deal that doesn't make the trope too strong is Omega Zell's non-inclusion.

* BlessedWithSuck: The battleground strategist position from Gaea's point of view. Away from the frontline, rest of the allied players mandated to protect you? Perfect for a DirtyCoward ! However, you'd better not screw up organising your army or enemy players will kill you on sight.

** Gaea seems to live alone until the short story that reveals Golgotha to be her roomate. In the webseries, Golgotha moved in just prior to the events that got Gaea the dress she's wearing since the start of the comic.

** Tenshirock is seen giving items he takes away from players to Ash, while two or three discussions in the webseries have Ash complaining precisely of Tenshirock's refusal to do so. Tenshirock is also never seen criticising Ash's job joice. As a consequence, Ash and Tenshirock seem to be getting along quite well and possibly have a VillainousFriendship, while it seems to be more "I'm letting you do your thing only because you're an old friend of mine" in the webseries.
** The Noob guild seems to not know of Tenshirock's existence before the [[spoiler:unbanning of Arthéon's old avatar]] incident. In the webseries's continuity, Tenshirock [[GoKartingWithBowser already shared a tavern meal with them]] and established somewhat of a business relationship with Gaea by the end of Season 2. The latter gets revealed to exist in the seventh comic, much to the suprise of the rest of the guild.
** [[spoiler:In this continuity, Nazetrîme's berserker is hinted to be an avatar she used on ''Horizon'' before meeting Master Zen. Since "Nazetrîme" is an anagram of Master Zen's French name and can't be its actual name, the berseker's name is obscured by speech bubbles.]]

* CapturedOnPurpose: Sparadrap gets mistaken to have done this by Dark Avenger and Précieux in the fourth comic. All he really did? He first decided to go along with them because he thought it would be fun, then switched to running after a smourbiff right when they happened to have their backs turned.

* ContinuityCavalcade: Sparadrap is seen walking a bunch of his pets in the eigth comic, including some he got in previous comics.
* ContinuityCreep: Some early short stories seem to get NegativeContinuity, while the later books are quite obviously part of an overeaching arc.

** It's actually possible to peek at the last page of the seventh comic and not be suprised at all as it's basically a retelling of the events between [[spoiler:Fantöm's deletion]] and [[spoiler:his new avatar joining the Noob guild]].

** A story has Gaea disguise as a penniless player and claim that "a mean hacker" stole all her money. She has used a similar excuse in the webseries, this time explicitly naming Tenshirock, whith whom she actually get along quite well.

* PerpetualPoverty: The Noob guild's finances are stated to be quite bad. The common funds however tend to be completly empty or just enough to pay for something essential to the plot. Since the situation is in part caused by the member's reluctance to contribute to them, their own finances are doing just a tiny bit better (especially Gaea, who's just greedy). Gabrielle, the player behind Gaea, is in that situation in real life, but also states to make a little money from the ads on her blog and gets good computers and consoles by participating in multiple constests in hopes of winning at least a few of them (and it seems to work). That is probably balanced out by all the geek stuff in her room and possibly having [[DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength Catherine / Golgotha]] as a roomate.

* StatusQuoIsGod: Frequently played straight in the first three comics (mostly longer stories that give time for actual changes). Zig-zagged as of the fourth one where progess is sometimes made, but some situations seem to have their own built-in ResetButton. This has stopped being true by the time comic 7 rolls in.

* SuicideAsComedy: The real life sequence at the beginning of comic 9 has a teenager about to jump off a building over a celebrity couple breaking up and changing her mind after finding some resemblance between the guy who kept her from jumping ([[spoiler:Dark Avenger]]'s player) and a famous actor.

** At some point, Gaea hides from two enemy armies for whom killing her would be an InstantWinCondition by climing up a tree. The second she hopes nobody will find her, Sparadrap calls her from the top of another tree quite close to hers and reveals that the other members of the guild saw him climb it. Cut to the rest of the guild looking up Sparadrap's tree and getting noticed by enemy scouts.
** After the Noob guild decides to do another battleground, Omega Zell states that the system randomly choosing the Empire's army leader can't do worse than Gaea. Cue the comic's last panel that is obviously the stategist selection for another battleground: congratulations, Sparadrap!

* TrashOfTheTitans: The few times Gaea's appartement is seen before Golgotha turns out to be her roomate.
* TropaholicsAnonymous: Arthéon is seen attending a support group for players who lost their previous characters because they did RealMoneyTrade and are trying to resist temptation to do it again. His story tends to make everyone else feel better about themselves.
* UnreliableVoiceover: After it turns out that [[spoiler:Master Zen is back on ''Horizon'']], he tells what he's been up to ever since [[spoiler:escaping jail]] via flashback. Part of the anecdote includes him "patiently tracking down" the Noob guild. In reality, Sparadrap found him first, and apparently quite quickly.

** The hairdresser is hinted to be yet a third cousin, suggesting that the situation is slowly slipping towards InexplicablyIdenticalIndividuals or UncannyFamilyResemblance ; new cousins however seem to be limited to professions that can create a pun or the original name in French (Ardacoach and Ardacoiffe are the names of the known cousins).

* SchmuckBait: Arthéon wonders why his boarding school, in which the principal has a NewMediaAreEvil attitude, even has a student-accessible computer room that he seems to be the only one using. It turns out that it's here to trap students that would not resist using the computers, and hence those that would need "detoxing".

* HoistByTheirOwnPetard: Comic 12 has three players from the next day's rival team plan to basically ding-dong ditch Kévin[=/=]Sparadrap all night so Noob's best fluxball player will be sleep-deprived the next day. They didn't count on the fact that he was sharing his room with someone who is more astute than him, sleep-deprived into a very bad mood and extremely protective of him. The dressing-down they get from the room's other occupant keeps ''them'' up all night (they even consider all moving in together after the tournament because they don't want to sleep alone anymore).

When Elena[=/=]Saphir says she doesn't want to see her guildmates lose time on a ''VideoGame/PokemonGo''-like app that came free with the smartphones given to everyone, [[spoiler:Max[=/=]Fantöm]] teases her by pointing out that this warning technically doesn't apply to him. Saphir is not amused and points out that his situation actually means that he can afford to be distracted by something else even less than everyone else.
