** Also invoked in a "Sid the Sexist" strip which abandoned the strip's usual subject matter completely to parody Novocastrian outrage at the relegation of Newcastle United FC from the UsefulNotes/PremierLeague in 2016 - not so much at the relegation as at the fact that hated local rivals Sunderland had stayed up.

* FandomRivalry: Invoked in canon with a strip where Roger Mellie goes to an SF fan convention to con money out of ''Series/DoctorWho'' fans by falsely claiming to have been a Dalek operator. Even after they realise he's a fake and he insults them, what drives them to severely beat him is when he calls them "[[Franchise/StarTrek Trekkies]]".

All are buffoons and/or hypocrites.

** There's more. Sweary, corrupt TV presenter Roger Mellie, The Man on The Telly [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mYglDJUtGBE also had a series]] ({{NSFW}}). The voice of Roger may sound [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Cook familiar]].

Viz contains so many tropes that one can confidently predict that this page is going to grow. Here are a few obvious ones for a startoff.

* StrawFeminist: Millie TantTant, a fat, ugly and possibly lesbian extreme feminist who spouts a lot of S.C.U.M.-esque nonsense and many strips end with her turning out to be a [[Main/StrawHypocrite hypocrite]].

** Biffa Bacon's father and mother have exactly the same stubble on their faces, and on occasion the artist has accidentally drawn them wearing each others clothing and left it in for comic effect. They both enjoy hurting Biffa and both enjoy blaming him for doing something the other told them to do. The only difference between their personalities is that 'Mutha' tends to be much more violent than 'Fatha'.

* RunningGag: Tommy "Banana" Johnson was a strip that appeared in the very first issue, featuring a boy with a huge artificial banana that he keeps putting forward as an unlikely solution to other peoples' problems, until an annoyed policeman [[AssShove shows him where he can shove it]]. The strip has repeatedly appeared, often in anniversary issues, with exactly the same events and dialogue but with the art altered to parody new developments in comics (photographic fumetti, manga-style, bad Poser-style digital art, etc...).
This list shows the last 10 events of 79. Show all.
