** Luann and Quill, who had put off having a relationship for years (in real-time) in fear that he'd suddenly have to move. Guess what happened next (literally minutes after they started making out). Though he eventually returned and they sesumed their relationship [[spoiler: until breaking up on Valentine's Day 2-16]]

* AlphaBitch: Tiffany the Evil Cheerleader pretty much defines this, at least as much as the previous trope namer [[Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch Libby]] herself did. Shallow, vain, beauty-obsessed and hateful of the main character 90% of the time. Unlike Libby she doesn't have a two-GirlPosse, just one friend who barely tolerates her and she even [[spoiler: lost a beauty pageant she'd set up for ''herself'']].

* LoveTriangle: Aaron, Luann and Tiffany. Also Toni with Brad and Dirk. And a budding one between Luann, Gunther, and creepy little gnome Elwood. Averted with Luann, Quill, and Tiffany since Quill was never attracted to her [[spoiler: and has since moved back to Australia]].
** [[spoiler: But now he's back. Though after Tiffany tried one too many times to make Luann jealous and received a ''very'' public telling-off by Quill, she finally backed off completely.]]

** In a move that no one (everyone) predicted [[spoiler: Quill had to suddenly move back to Australia as soon as he and Luann decided to start a real relationship and stop worrying about him suddenly moving back to Australia. And then Luann's dad had to be a massive jerk and rub it in with Australia jokes ''not even an hour after Quill's plane left'']].
** TheBusCameBack: In a move that no one really did predict, [[spoiler:Quill continued to court Luann over cellphones and laptops, and he eventually returned to keep up his relationship with Luann, moving in with Gunther and his mom.]]

* RelationshipUpgrade: Brad crushed openly on Toni Daytona upon meeting her, but couldn't win her away from her then jerky boyfriend, Dirk. It would take years of storylines for them to eventually start dating once she lost Dirk. It took longer still for them to get more than a handful of playful kisses. Finally, Toni admitted she loves Brad, and a few strips made it relatively obvious they were sexually active. Thanks to a surprise run in by Toni with a reformed Dirk, [[spoiler: she has ''finally'' accepted Brad's marriage proposal]].

** Quill, an Australian transfer student, was Aaron's replacement in terms of looks and attractiveness. [[spoiler: He was also the closest to starting a real relationship with Luann, and almost immediately put on a plane back to Australia the minute they started kissing. They did become a couple when he returned to the States and started living at Gunther's house.]]

** Rosa, the girl who won the school beauty pageant, is not only pretty but (for some reason) attracted to Gunther. Gunther, who's been attracted to Luann (for some reason) for so long, has no idea what to think. They eventually became an OfficialCouple [[spoiler:but later broke up]].

Sometimes funny, and occasionally poignant, it's known for capitalizing on current trends, and dropping Anvilicious subplots about various subjects (i.e. marijuana use, 9/11) in an attempt to be modern and legitimate. Most of the characters seem to exist as two-dimensional archetypes, with rare glimpses into more aspects of their personalities, so you will find a ''lot'' of tropes in here played totally straight (though TropesAreNotBad). It also gained a new focus, as lazy brother Brad shifted into becoming a co-main character of sorts, gaining nearly as much page time as his sister thanks to a subplot where he joins the fire department post 9/11 and falls for the beautiful Toni Daytona. As well, Luann's idealized crush Aaron has left the strip entirely.

* BreakoutCharacter: Brad had his own storylines occasionally, but was more often seen through Luann's eyes as an annoying older brother. By the time of the "9/11/Firefighter/Toni Daytona" storyline, Brad had basically earned equal footing to his sister in the strip, with a whole new supporting cast to play with.

** Quill ended up being even blander than Aaron, with his main personality traits being that he was handsome... and Australian. [[spoiler: He ended up developing a passion for theater, but then Luann dumped him for [[ItsAllAboutMe focusing too much on his career instead of her]].]]

* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Whenever Aaron Hill moves out of the picture (moves away or just has a falling out with Luann), there will be some other new boy. A lifeguard (who turns out to be married) or an exchange student (who eventually moves back), or something like that.

* NotAllowedToGrowUp: Barely averted. When the strip began in 1985 Luann and her friends were approximately thirteen years old; in the ensuing two and a half decades they've advanced to roughly 16 or 17.

* ShoutOut: Shortly after ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' ended one strip had Luann and Delta riding down a hill in a red wagon. In the first panel, Delta asks, "[[GenreSavvy We're not going to flying off a cliff are we?]]" Of course they do.

** In the week leading up to ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'' final comic. Luann pretty much visited Charlie Brown neighborhood and basiclly tried to reenact several of his famous scene as a cute little send off. The Sunday strip of that week, which focused back on the current story arc, even had a poster of Charlie Brown in the background.
