** Delta was consistently seen with sunglasses and a huge smile on her face in the early years -- she is similarly unrecognizable.



* DemotedToExtra: The beauty pageant arc from 2010 (the one introducing Rosa) was the first time Delta played a major role in a storyline in years. And she promptly faded back into the background once it was over.

* DemotedToExtra: The beauty pageant arc from 2010 (the one introducing Rosa) was the first time Delta played a major role in a storyline in years. And she promptly faded back into the background once it was over. Eventually, she left the strip entirely, and hasn't appeared in years. Greg Evans has stated repeatedly that the "perfect" Delta is almost ''impossible'' to write for, owing to her lack of flaws. The more flawed Luann is easily, while Tiffany (who is largely made of personality flaws and hotness) is the simplest.



** Her friends think she's too much of a goody two-shoes, though, and preachy to boot. Whether we're supposed to agree with them or not is not clear.

* WeWillMeetAgain: After T.J. got Ann Eiffel out of her job at Weenie World, her parting words were "You haven't seen the last of me!"
** Though as that particular storyline took place in January 2013 and she hasn't been seen since, it has been a SubvertedTrope thus far. Only time will tell if it remains that way.

** After Aaron was [[PutOnABus put on a plane to Hawaii]], the strip signaled his reunion with Luann in a storyline where she wins a contest flight to Hawaii. What happens when she reunites with Aaron there? She sees him once with another girl, doesn't even bother to confirm she's his girlfriend, and then doesn't speak to him again after that. Aaron's return was teased ''again'' with a strip where he sends Luann a Myspace friend request and a message suggesting he's single now, but nothing came of it after that.

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Brad's first crush, Diane, puts him through the wringer over and over, and then vanishes without a trace after it's revealed she hooked up with Aaron Hill, and she hasn't been mentioned in over a decade. Unlikely to come back now that Brad is married to Toni.

* AllTakeAndNoGive / TakingAdvantageOfGenerosity: Toni Daytona's brother Jonah treats her as an on-call free daycare, to the point of demanding that she reschedule any commitments that might prevent her from watching Shannon. When Toni finally tried to refuse, stating that Jonah needed to take some responsibility for his own life, he replied that he would have an easier time doing so [[WhatHaveYouDoneForMeLately if he had ever received any help from her]]. It's not limited to his own family members either: upon meeting Nancy for the first time (and finding out that her son was engaged to Toni), he ''immediately'' left Shannon with her and hightailed it out the door with the excuse that "Toni will pick her up in a few hours."

* GoshDangItToHeck / UnusualEuphemism: Whenever any character has a BigOMG, they always say "OHMYGAW" (one word, all-caps) due to Evans's disinclination to use "God."

** 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 resumed their relationship [[spoiler: until breaking up on Valentine's Day 2016]]

** 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.
