* UsefulNotes/TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks: The series was created in the Aughties, but is basically an extension of Balent's 90s ''ComicBook/{{Catwoman}}'' run, where Selina was a stock 90s Bad Girl in an impossible costume.

* MoralDissonance: At the conclusion of issue #71, Tarot convinces the mermaid witch to allow the thieving witches to be 'tested by the sea' which consists of chaining someone [[NightmareFuel over shark-infested waters to be eaten;]] if you live, you're not guilty. This punishment is a classic example of and 'eye-for-eye' punishment... the sort of thing she condemned Thornwic for carrying out in an earlier issue.\\
Then again, she didn't have that much choice in the matter since if she hadn't suggested this, the mermaid would have killed them on the spot and seeing as Tarot escaped the same punishment in the same issue they would have a slim chance of escaping as well. Unfortunately, a horrible painful death is far more likely, which is what ended up happening.\\
Considering Tarot escaped via picking up a shark with her legs and having it bite down on her manacles, it's pretty clear that there ''was'' no chance for them.

* DoubleStandard: See SceneryCensor, below. One scene in "Holiday Witches" shows all six of the series' main characters -- Tarot, her sister and mother, Boo Cat, Licorice and Jon -- fully nude. Guess who's the only one who ''isn't'' completely exposed for the readers' enjoyment?
** Hilariously enough, the only time a man is vaguely exposed, it's the Talking Fountain, who is completely made of stone. Also, a giant.

* NonMammalMammaries: The Dragon Witches. In Tarot, ''everyone'' has tits.
** Only in their humanish form, though. It's not too unreasonable when roughly approximating humans.

* OnlySixFaces: Every woman has the same body and face and mainly only differ in terms of what kind of "body paint" they're wearing. Guys don't even get that much and are largely nondescript. It gets ''really'' obvious in an issue where reader-submitted pictures are drawn in for a Wiccan army battle.

* SceneryCensor / CensorSteam: Played straight (more or less) until issue 17, and then they're averted wholeheartedly. The only female character who doesn't get full frontal nudity is recurring character Crypt Chick and celebrity guest Fiona Horne in "The Witch Queen." [[DoubleStandard Still played straight when it comes to Jon's dangly bits]].
** For some reason, it comes back into play for a few isses around 60-67, but then the series goes back to averting it.

* WeirdMoon: Seems to be full ALL the time.
** Possibly justified in that the comic progresses more or less in real time, though, and is published every 2 months, with most adventures taking place over a single night. In the "Mists of Darkness", which took place over two nights, it was only a full moon for the first night, so Boo-Cat was in her human form for the second. But almost every other time she is in the comic, she spends at least some time as a were-cat due to the full moon.

* {{Stripperiffic}}: On the rare occasions when Tarot and her friends actually wear clothing, it almost always belongs in this category. Most of it could honestly be called "two strings and a wish". The majority of female characters aren't wearing much more then her.
