* OurMermaidsAreDifferent: Remora reveals many qualities not found in most other works. For example, she can shapeshift into fully human or fully fish forms only up to 12 hours at a time, after which she transforms into the opposite form [[InvoluntaryShapeshifter whether she wants to or not]]. It is also said that if a human saves a mermaid's life three times, they become a mermaid themselves, although exactly what qualifies as saving their life is PlayedForLaughs: Samantha found herself turned into a mermaid after something as simple as giving Remora a flotation ring for swimming practice. Remora's also [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld more than 400 years old despite looking the same age as her classmates]].

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Jenny [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this after saying that Samantha will make a better space mission commander than Jenny would. "Yeah, it's out of character, but our lives depend on it."



* {{Retcon}}: A 1989 strip featured Jenny talking about her brothers. Later strips, however, establish that she's an only child. The creator [[HandWave hand waved]] this by saying that her brothers were just her imagination.
