Added DiffLines:

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Noga, Yaron's DistaffCounterpart and Sigal's good friend, has barely appeared at all in recent strips

* SickeninglySweethearts: Asher and Yosepha can be obnoxiously affectionate
* SpoiledSweet: Sigal is sometimes noted to come from a very well-off family, and yet she is still an activist SoapBoxSadie who cares a lot about the less fortunte and even took on a summer job just for the sake of it, even though she doesn't need it. (her allowence are "the size of the milltary budget)


Added DiffLines:

* TrueArtIsAngsty: In Zbeng 1's Zbeng at First Sight, Sigal wanna ask Gal out for a movie of that sort.
* TwiceShy: The very first Zbeng strip was about that. Gal saw a hot chick at the beach, and couldn't think of what to say to her, so he just kept coming to the beach and sitting near her day after day until he got sunburned - and then meeting her at the skin doctor's clinic and finding out she did the exact same thing. This story has been retolf several times, mostly as the story of how Gal and Sigal first met.
** Noga and Yaron often have that realtionship

''Zbeng'' is probably the most notable UsefulNotes/{{Israel}}i comic, by cartoonist Ouri Fink. It follows the day-to-day lives of a large cast of characters, most of them high-schoolers.

!!This comic provides examples of:

* AllJustADream: [[spoiler:Of Jinji, apparently, or at least flashbacks. It turns out that as of 2015, [[http://e.walla.co.il/item/2821898 he and his classmates are already adults with children of their own.]]]]
* AllMenArePerverts: Well, not everyone. Asher was afraid of sex in one story, Nir is a narcissist and Tzachi only cares about eating. But that's often the general feel of the comic
* AllWomenArePrudes: When this was pointed out to Uri, he created Sivan, a GoodBadGirl
* AlphaBitch: Maya is the Class Queen
* AmusingInjuries: and "Zbeng!" is a very common sound effect
* AnimalTalk: in thought-babbles, Garfield-style

* NotSoDifferent: ‘Atsanya bat-Simkhon, a recurring character who is basically Sigal, only a far-right-winger instead of a far-left-winger. When Moti tried to introduce them, they were both ComicallyMissingThePoint, seeing the other as a CardCarryingVillain they share nothing with.



* SoapBoxSadie: Sigal is more than a little devoted to her political ideals.
