* AffectionateNickname: Mariko the Black Queen calls her sister Shinobu "Bu-chan".



* AsLongAsItSoundsForeign: No, Taranee isn't an African name. Hay isn't a Chinese name, either. (though it's possible that the writers got it mixed up with the name "Hui" - not to be confused with the term for Chinese Muslims - which means "intelligent", "bright".)

* CloudCuckoolander: Hay Lin: very quirky and artistic, cheerful and absent-minded, constantly writing on her palms and using her own expressions like "spacious" (which in her language means "cool") and "weirdific".

* ByThePowerOfGreyskull: Implied to not be necessary, but used anyways, sometimes Will calls every element, sometimes everyone calls her own. In a variation, while "Earth", "Fire", "Air" and "Water" have been always called, in the first issues, Will said whatever was on her mind (Energy, Heart, etc.) one time, she ended up saying just her own [[http://a.imageshack.us/img321/476/willelement16th.jpg name]]
** Of course, in English, her name [[MeaningfulName takes on a whole new meaning]] [[HeroicWillpower when you think about it]].

** Whether Yan Lin is Hay Lin's paternal or maternal grandmother. At the very beginning of the story (before going to Kandrakar permanently), Yan Lin addresses Chen as her son. But later in the comic, Joan mentions Yan Lin telling her bedtime stories when she was a child. Later again, Joan's parents are shown, and her mother is definitely not Yan Lin.
*** [[spoiler: Hay Lin's family is pretty complex, Chen was the servant of Joan's family, and they fell in love, so if Chen's family all were servants of Joan's family could Yan Lin have told Joan bedtime stories as a nanny.]]

* KilledOffForReal: let's be clear, the WITCH are nice girls, but if you are the BigBad and they have to unleash AllYourColorsCombined, they don't care whether you will be depowered or killed. The Oracle never forbid them to kill. Expect a lot of RedemptionEqualsDeath, too.
** [[DeaderThanDead Phobos got his soul disintegrated]], as the Guardians didn't want to take chances and were ''furious'' for what he had just done (particularly Will, who had been subjected to a MindRape).

* LethalChef: Will is on the same level of [[Manga/RanmaOneHalf Akane Tendo]], having once put powdered soap in place of the flour. Orube can't cook due lack of familiarity with Earth ingredients and cooking implements (the first time she cooked she set the kitchen on fire, but only that once) and clumsiness outside the way of the warrior, but while she's slowly getting better she still has a long way to go (she once set on fire the ''[[EpicFail water for the pasta]]''!).
** To be fair, Will has never done anything in a kitchen before, and her mother expected her to be the primary cook after William was born, without classes or teaching her herself, just cookbooks to help her. No matter how smart one is, that situation can be very stressful.

* NoodleIncident: We know there were guardians before W.i.t.c.h., including one with Hay Lin's grandmother. But we never find out what they fought against. (The portals open every 1000 years, and Phobos and Elyon are humans, so it's very unlikely they fought against them, or that they are 1000 of years old)
** [[spoiler: Matt being from Kandrakar]]
*** Parodied when Will asks how important he was, and just then Kandor call him "captain".

* SexierAlterEgo - The titular ''Comicbook/{{WITCH}}'' are fairly average (albeit skinny) teenagers in their normal form. When transformed however, they are changed to look much more... adult. Lampshaded on more than one occasion.
** BreastExpansion is present is the comic book, but not as prevalent as in the series.
* ShoutOut: Hay Lin has a little Franchise/SailorMoon on her monitor, along with a monster that kinda looks like Godzilla. Irma has plenty of Disney paraphernalia, including a [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid Little Mermaid]]. In the Dark Mother Saga, [[spoiler: [[WesternAnimation/CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers they combine their powers]] to create a powerful being to defeat her]]

* FlyingFirepower: Taranee had the power of creating and controlling fire since the beginning, but became an example of FlyingFirepower in the ''New Power'' saga, when all the Guardians (and not just Hay Lin) acquired the ability to fly. An early foe, Ember the Pain, was this since she was created.

* CharacterDerailment: Matt, Will's boyfriend. We get to know him as a uncomplicated regular guy, who loves to play guitar, is good with animals and loves Will very much. After his brush with fame (he goes on tour with Karmilla, In-Universe rock idol) the guy changes abruptly: he grows cold and distant towards Will, outs himself as a creature of Kondrakar origin and becomes W.I.T.C.H. 's combat trainer in the New Power Arc. It's like his whole personality and background got thrown out of the window.
