* AndThatLittleGirlWasMe: This is the punchline of the short strip ''Candy and the Catchman'', where an old man warns a bunch of children to watch out for a bug-like monster that drains the lifeforce of small children, and how a boy named Billy Candy stood up to the creature but failed. When the children don't believe his crazy story, he reveals that it happened only yesterday, because ''he's'' Billy Candy.

* HereWeGoAgain: The short strip ''Life Cycle'' begins and ends with a child waking up from hibernation, then growing up and heading out to explore the LandfillBeyondTheStars that they're living inside, before ultimately being killed by the spider-like parasites. This is because of a fault in the cloning process of the space station that causes memory loss, forcing him/her to relive the cycle indefinitely.

* PersecutedIntellectuals: The short strip ''Danger! Genius At Work!'' features a society where intelligent people are persecuted because IndividualityIsIllegal.

However, at the end one of the police officers who arrests intelligent people is [[HereWeGoAgain shown getting struck by the spark of creativity himself]].

* BloodSport: Many early strips, such as ''Mean Team'', ''Mean Arena'' and, most notably ''ComicBook/HarlemHeroes'', had ultra-violent future sports based loosely on real sports with a futuristic twist. ''Button Man'' combines this trope with HuntingTheMostDangerousGame where rich people gambled with each other by pitting {{Professional Killer}}s against each other in modern day duels.

* RequiredSecondaryPowers: ''The Visible Man'' shows at least one such problem with invisiblity. The protagonist's skin becomes invisible so that [[BodyHorror all his internal organs are showing]], making him look like a monster and becoming a target for unscrupulous scientists who want to perform all sorts of nasty experiment on him against his will. After he escapes from his confinement he tries to restore his skin's appearance by developing a suntan. He quickly finds that because the light rays go right through his skin and musculature they simply burn his organs, so he's forced to find a different way.
