* PetTheDog: Despite the massive amounts of bigotry towards other religions, beliefs, and sexual orientations, Chick dislikes racism. Some strips have even been rewritten for a black audience.

** Chick also did not appear to be a Dominionist, a believer that secular governments should be overthrown for Christian theocracies, which is also a somewhat common position among the American Christian far-right. Chick praises the U.S. Constitution in several tracts, and while he takes the position that ''all'' human societies suck in comparison to the utopia Jesus will establish upon His Second Coming, people should respect their secular governments until that happens naturally and absolutely not try to speed up the process.

In other words, this setting is a very dark fantasy world, comparable to ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' and ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', although with less graphic violence (and with a bit of ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' thrown in). Unlike Games Workshop, however, the people behind chick.com seem to believe their own message. Some people [[PoesLaw insist that it must be some kind of parody]]. However, Jack Chick himself has given one interview where he claims to be totally serious. Honest or not, he does seem to make a lot of money from people who buy large quantities of his tracts with their own money and then hand them out free of charge to friends and random strangers in the hope that this act will eventually spare a few souls from the horrors of hell.

* EveryoneHasStandards: "Lisa" was the only comic that was pulled by Jack Chick, since the "moral" of the tale was apparently, [[http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Jack_Chick "Remember: raping your children is fine as long as you accept Jesus as your personal savior! And it only takes 10 minutes!"]]

* CriticalResearchFailure: Too much of it. Including, but not limited to, either only no, or the barest amount of, research into other cultures, religions, diseases, Atheism, science, simple human behavior, &, most pathetic of all, not a lot of fact checking into Christianity itself at points, specifically The Bible. To list every single example relating to this topic would require its own page.

In addition, [[WebVideo/DarkDungeons a live-action version of Dark Dungeons]] came out in August 2014. It's precisely as [[StealthParody over-the-top]] and [[NarmCharm narmy]] as was expected. Also, two Chick tracts, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TWcokN06inA "The Sissy"]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4F8Y-Ur50_M "Tiny Shoes,"]] have been made into short animated films. Interestingly enough, the latter has Jack Chick credited as a few supporting roles, meaning it contains what may well be the only publicly available recording of Chick's voice.

* {{Badass}}: Jesus, according to [[http://www.chick.com/reading/tracts/0086/0086_01.asp "The Sissy?"]] for being willing to suffer and die for the good of humanity.
** Some particularly courageous and determined Christians count as well. The prison guard in "Bad Bob" says that a young man who tries to witness to the {{Jerkass}} Bad Bob and his cousin has more guts than both of them combined, even if the guard doesn't agree with his brand of Christianity.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Most of the tracts contain material like sex references, violence, blood, and gore that in no way would be appropriate to readers who are mostly children.
** The biggest one has got to be all those references to the Muslim Prophet Muhammad especially portraying him as marrying a underage girl and calling black people "raisin heads" and was informed that God sent him to hell... Now in a world where the Danish got attacked for their cartoons, South Park episodes 200 and 201, and Charlie Hepbo... Jack Chick has got to be the only cartoonist who portrayed Muhammad in a negative light and lived to tell about it... till his eventual death at age 92.
