* DubNameChange: Nearly all of the characters have different names in different countries. To use Beetle as an example, he's named "Billy" in Norway, "Jens Fup" in Denmark,"Knasen" in Sweden, "Masi" in Finland, and, funnily enough, "Zero" in Italy. The latter country focuses on the American Zero's buck teeth instead, upon which his name is "Dentino".

Added DiffLines:

* WimpFight: A fight between Julius and Rocky is shown as pretty hopeless fist-poking. That's understandable with Julius, who's one of the wimpiest characters around -- someone once remarked that if he and Lt. Fuzz were to fight, both would lose -- but it's odd for Rocky, an ex-gang member and PsychoForHire wannabe.

* ImpossiblyTackyClothes:
** When Sarge has to wear civilian clothes instead of his beloved uniform, expect colourful patterned jackets, trousers and neckties that clash horribly.
** General Halftrack is prone to wearing odd shirts, trousers that don't match and funny hats when he goes golfing.

'''Sergeant Orville "Sarge" Snorkel:''' The [[DrillSergeantNasty Sergeant]] of Company A, the company of soldiers that Beetle and others are part of. Sarge is a real [[{{Jerkass}} piece of work]], full of [[ButtMonkey character flaws]] and issues that the comic's creator [[FreudWasRight may or may not be aware of]].

* {{Badass}}: In spite of everything, Sarge has his moments. Like killing a bull with his bare hands. Accidentally.



* TheNeidermeyer: Lt. Fuzz is quite pompous and demanding while absolutely failing to impress anyone ever. Sarge can at least inspire fear and some love-hate, and can be a competent {{Badass}} at times, so he's somewhere between TheNeidermeyer and SergeantRock.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Some strips have occasionally sneaked in a sexual joke, though the trope is also averted: Mort Walker drew several strips that threw the radar out the window as they contained blatant sexual jokes or even sexual ''actions'', but they were never allowed to go further than the drafting stage. In some countries, however, said drafts were released for fans to read under the label of "too risky" strips.

To give examples, one draft had Zero being implied to [[ADateWithRosiePalms masturbate]], while another had Louise Lugg appearing to give Sarge fellatio.

** One finished strip that ''somehow'' made it past the censors had General Halftrack hinting to his wife that he wanted to have sex, with her answering that "it" was "too long and hard." Halftrack proudly questions this only for her to explain she was talking about a cake she was baking.

** It's actually played fairly realistically; he's strong because he works out constantly, and stout because he eats constantly.

** Sarge and the guys are coming back from a movie[[note]]it sounds kind of like the first ''Franchise/ThePinkPanther'' film[[/note]] that Sarge says wasn't too funny. Turns out he didn't fully understand what was happening, and after they explain it to him, he's laughing for what looks like hours afterwards.

** Sarge does this often, usually to Beetle when about to beat him up.

** Sarge does this often, usually to Beetle when about to beat him up. With Beetle's neck being thinner than Sarge's fingers, it sometimes involves the victim's neck being entirely enclosed within the first holding him up.
