* JerkAss: If Jeremy wasn't their kid, they would have beat the shit out of him years ago. [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold He does have his kinder moments, though.]]
** JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: His kinder moments are ''very'' few and far between, though.

* MustHaveCaffeine: Phoebe

* MustHaveCaffeine: PhoebePhoebe way well be the embodiment of the trope. She lists "caffeine" as her religion when she applies for a job at Fourbucks Coffee, and has an espresso machine in her locker. In one strip she's carrying a latte as big as herself down the hallway with a dolly, and in another, Jeremy taps her on the shoulder to ask her something and she hits the ceiling - literally - in shock, having drunk more than usual for finals.



* SelfDepreciation: Twofold on the back of the first treasury, ''Humongous Zits''. On the back is a quote: "''Zits'' is the worst name for a comic strip since ''NewspaperComic/{{Peanuts}}''". The quote is from Charles Schulz.

* SickeninglySweethearts: Richandamy, based on a real couple from the authors' lives, who appear to have achieved some kind of symbiosis and seem [[MakeOutKids locked in a permanent embrace]]. The other characters' attitude towards them alternates between a strange sort of admiration and utter disbelief.
** In one strip where they temporarily break up, the other characters can't pronounce their names separately, saying "Richand Amy" or "Rich Andamy." The mere attempt causes physical pain.

* SoapBoxSadie: Hector's former girlfriend Autumn was like this. Usually she was the StrawVegetarian type, giving Jeremy the whole "meat is murder" routine (which he always seemed to have a clever comeback to) but there was one storyline where she tried a FreeTheFrogs variation with locusts, at their school. (RealityEnsues when the Hazmat unit shows up.)

* IWasQuiteAFashionVictim: Jeremy asks his dad what he was like at 15. Apparently, he had a large poofy afro, bell-bottom pants, ridiculously tacky jacket and shirt, and had braces and granny glasses. Oh, and he played the clarinet. The image scares Jeremy enough it gets rid of his hiccups.

* NostalgiaFilter: Played for laughs in one arc in which Walt brings Jeremy and Connie to a cabin that Walt has nothing but fond memories of. Jeremy meanwhile finds that Walt hated the cabin as much as he does...there was a carving of "I hate this [[SymbolSwearing $@#%]] dump!" that Walt had apparently carved when he was Jeremy's age.
