* TheCameo: [[Series/{{House}} Gregory House]] as a school doctor. Yes, you read it right.



** Jimmy Five has the word "pindarolas" (an old-time interjection which roughly means the same as "Good God" or "Holy mackerel").



** Mr. Juca, however, makes Sunny's life look like a walk in the park. He has to get a different job ''every'' comic because Monica and her friends [[UnwantedAssistance just won't leave him alone]] (unfortunately for Mr. Juca, they happen to be quite fond of him), in a somewhat similar dynamic to [[WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants Spongebob and Squidward]], which has put a lot of strain on his actual mental health (he's actually acquainted with Nutty Ned because they attended the same asylum). Almost no story ends up good for him, although Mr. Juca just wants to have a normal job and stay away from the gang so he can live in peace.

* ContinuityPorn: Particularly in TheEighties and in recent years, as the writers decide to reference really old stories (or long-forgotten plot points, such as Captain Frey being Smudge's crazy uncle). The MilestoneCelebration of 500 ''Mônica'' issues was filled with this!

* EveryoneHasStandards: Smudge may be a filthy, stinky little kid, but even he has limits for how much dirt he can take, which is why he often finds himself opposite Captain Fray, who is basically the only person in the comic that's filthier than him.



* HairTriggerTemper: Again, Monica. If she understands something as an insult to her height\weight\teeth (even if by mistake), everyone around will get beaten up.

* InformedSpecies: While [[http://p2.trrsf.com/image/fget/cf/460/0/images.terra.com/2014/02/26/floquinho-619.jpg Fluff does pass as a green lhasa apso]], [[http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-GWWWJt1DQ90/Upv3ogtFsiI/AAAAAAAABGo/wLSz0XCoVlU/s1600/de+003.jpg Blu's status as a schnauzer is not so clear.]] And then there's Glu, a dog that's ''yellow and shaped like an egg''.

* JerkAss: Jimmy can be one of these many times, and not only to Monica. He has been seen setting up infallible plans to make Smudge bathe, and even used Maggy's appetite as a weapon against Monica, for instance. A real EnfantTerrible. But, in general, he falls more into JerkWithAHeartOfGold.
** Although Jimmy could fall into AlternativeCharacterInterpretation. Is he a JerkAss like described above? Or is he just giving payback for people constantly making fun of his speech impediment? Early stories show people pulling pretty mean-spirited jokes about it. The Alternate Jim in the manga became an utter jerk BECAUSE of people picking on his speech problems. That's enough to make a lot of people bitter.
** To be fair, people don't pick on him nearly as much as he and the other boys do to Monica. If that would be a reason for Jimmy to be such a jerk, then Monica should become an absolute bitch. Jimmy's problem (especially as of late) is being selfish to a fault, though this can be played with considering that Jimmy thinks Monica pulled a SpotlightStealingSquad on him (he was created in 1960 and was the main character of Mauricio's strips until 1963, when Monica debuted and became the title character) and wants to repay her in kind.

* LaughablyEvil: Captain Fray, over the years, has become progressively more comical and over-the-top, usually even engaging in small-talk with the kids. This doesn't necessarily equate to DiminishingVillainThreat, however, because his powers over dirt are regarded seriously and he ''has'' had some really nefarious plans.



** Played very straight, particularly with Monica. One certain picture has her looking at her wardrobe... which is chock full of red dresses just like the one she usually wears.

** Played very straight, particularly with Monica. One certain picture has her looking at her wardrobe... which is chock full of red dresses just like the one she usually wears. She's usually pretty comfortable with this situation, though.



* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: ''Yeah''. The fact that Monica's Gang refers to both TheVerse and the "core" characters shows it's an ample amount. While reprinting the first issues of the "core 5 comics" (the four Monica's Gang characters and Chuck Billy), they ran for 50 issues, each having a different character in the cover (#50 was Monica's dad, which also serves as an AuthorAvatar to Mauricio).

** This dates back from Mauricio's old strips, out of a need to simplify the design. It also seems to be the reason for the toeless barefoot characters (Monica wore shoes in her first appearance, but more bits of them were erased at each strip, until she became barefoot and toeless).

** Captain Fray is Smudge's uncle who either went crazy or got transformed by the dust of his comic collection, but few people remember or care about that. In a StarWars parody, Fray (as "Dork Frayder") says "I'm your father's brother!" to Smudge Skywalker and throws his [[NoFourthWall debut comic]] (Mônica Vol.1 #31, published in 1972) as proof. Years later Smudge seems to have forgotten about it, as Marina shows him that same comic and he gets shocked, quoting Darth Vader once again.
** Referenced early in the Teen run (issue #4) by Denise, via BreakingTheFourthWall to tell Angelo why Fray will not check the back issues to elaborate a counter-plan to their plan to rescue Franklin. She states that the incident got him traumatized.

* BadFuture: The manga has not one, but TWO, all caused by [[TokenEvilTeammate Jim]].



** Bucky. Of course, it requires a DEEP digging through the crust that is formed by his sexism and massive ego. But despite these bad qualities, this was the guy that was willing to help Irene make friends with the gang and willingly put his relationship with Isabel at risk when she found out the mesasges Irene left him because he didn't want her to get in trouble because of his mistake.



** Bucky, though even in that continuity Jimmy still has his moments[[note]]Case in point: issue #47, where the gang travels to Japan. Jimmy behaves like a total tool, complaining all the time and voluntarily getting himself lost because he was tired of being told what to do.[[/note]].
** Although they ''pale'' in comparison to Toni. To put in perspective, Neither Bucky nor Jim ever plotted to crush Monica's heart for a ''decade'' just because they got beaten up by her and made fun of by it. And Toni goes as low as bullying Luca and saying that not bullying him just because he's crippled would be "special treatment" and "prejudice".

** To some people, this story doubles as horrific. Mainly because Jimmy Five suffers a big FaceHeelTurn. Thankfully, [[ItGotBetter he gets better]].

** Debatable in Maggy's case. Usually your nice girl, but when food is involved, her unpleasant side comes up. Examples include always taking huge bites out of other people's food, outright invading Monica's house for food and thinking there's nothing wrong with it and eating all at once to not share with other people. She is honest in that she cares for her friends, though, and usually serves as Monica's adviser sometimes. It carries over to the manga as well, where she's not above ''stalking'' the teacher she has a crush on despite being on a relationship with Todd, and, when Monica and Jim had the argument that caused him to break off their thing with each other because of Monica's inability to back down and stubbornness, talking to Monica that Jim didn't deserve her and she needs to forget him.

Added DiffLines:

*** More than a few stories have put Maggy in Monica's position of power over the block. She outright borders on TheCaligula to the point that when Monica seizes back the position, the boys welcome her back with open arms.

** Jimmy Five- [[InsistentTerminology ahem, Jim]] - grows some backbone in the Manga and starts to call out Monica on her violent tendencies and bossy attitude.
** Exhibit A: Issues #23 and #24, which is a WholePlotReference to ''Manga/DeathNote'', but replacing "Death" with "Laughter", with Jimmy himself as the story's "Kira" ("The Great Clown" here). At one scene, when everyone is their school is discussing the Clown's identity, Smudge says that because Monica is so hotheaded, she would be a potential target for the Clown. And then this follows:
-->'''Monica:''' Is that true, Jim? You really think I deserve a laughing attack?
-->'''Jim:''' You know what, Monica? Smiling wouldn't kill you! It's a pain in the ass to put up with someone who is always stressed! You may feel comfortable with that big temper of yours...but we're the ones who suffer to put up with your fretfulness!
-->'''Smudge:''' [[OhCrap Now he's done it...]]
-->'''Maggy:''' [[OhCrap I gotta go get my order...]]
-->'''Marina:''' [[OhCrap I left a drawing unfinished...]]
-->'''Monica:''' H-how do you have the nerve to...
-->'''Jim:''' And I'll tell you more: If that Clown actually exists, I bet you are on his list!
** Exhibit B: Issue #26, where two brothers who are professional rollerbladers,[[note]]Carmen's cousins, no less[[/note]] are bullying everyone around their city and acting like [[InsufferableGenius colossal]] [[SmugSnake pricks]]. Monica, getting fed up with their attitude, challenges them to a rollerblading contest, dragging Maggy, Smudge and Jim into it, without asking them about it in the first place. None of them, of course, knows how to skate. At some point, Jim falls again trying to skate and Monica starts yelling at him.
-->'''Monica:''' That won't do it! That won't do it! You don't have a drop of effort, Jim!
-->'''Jim:''' Hey, that's not like it. I'm doing my best!
-->'''Maggy:''' Both of you are trying hard and...
-->'''Monica:'''Yeah, right! It looks like you're goofing off on me! How am I supposed to know if I can count on you for the contest?
-->'''Jim:''' Count on me? Count on me?! COUNT ON ME?! So you want to know if you can count on me? I NEVER said I knew how to skate! I DON'T! And still, I'M HERE! WEARING THIS STUPID OUTFIT! SCRAPING MY BUTT ON THE FLOOR! AND ALL BECAUSE SOMEONE MADE A ROLLERBLADING CHALLENGE, WHEN SAID PERSON DOESN'T EVEN KNOW HOW TO SKATE! AND STILL, SHE GOT HER FRIENDS ON A STUPID CONTEST! WITHOUT EVEN ASKING THEM! AND NOW YOU WANNA KNOW IF YOU CAN COUNT ON ME?

* WillTheyOrWontThey: There is also some argument as to Monica and Jimmy's relationship over this (pretty much since they are the only main characters without any kind of engagement). While, as kids, they never get together due to him not seeing her as more than just a friend (and, in the worst-case scenarios, he deems her too ugly to be date-able - she had made advances on him before), as teenagers, they go one step further, even though he is still too shy to admit it once and for all. So much so, that in one issue, it's Monica who takes it upon herself to have the initiative, by ''stealing a kiss from Jim''. Though he runs away flustered (with her chasing him, "just like the old times"), one can see that deep down he liked it.

** Really, the whole manga is about this. Bucky was flanderized into a sexist, controlling, bitter ex to make Isabel's empowering CharacterDevelopment more positive, the following chapters after "Shadows of the Past" treat Jimmy's TheBeard with Penha as intentional two-timing when he was actually being blackmailed into going out with her and even Monica seemed to regard that as such at the end of the arc, Maggy thinks it's totally fine to droll over the HotTeacher in front of her boyfriend but she won't accept people calling her out on it or Todd glancing at another girl with the faintest hint of interest, although Todd at least calls her out on it herself and she's upset...because he found out and didn't think he had noticed.

* {{Flanderization}}: Sooo much in the late years (since the last decade, or even right at the end of TheNineties). The kids are much more hyperactive and have some traits amped up so as to come across as almost negative - for example, having the resident BigEater flying into a frenzy at the slightest mention of anything food-related, and using Sunny's perceived "lack of notability" to make him the all-around ButtMonkey (something he was '''never''' known for before). Also, they tack in lots of [[OutOfCharacterMoment OOC Moments]] (many of these shown in the MemeticMutation link - the period can be told by the art style), if only for RuleOfFunny.

** Mr. Juca, however, makes Sunny's life look like a walk in the park. He has to get a different job ''every'' comic because Monica and her friends [[UnwantedAssistance just won't leave him alone]] (unfortunately for Mr. Juca, they happen to be quite fond of him), in a somewhat similar dynamic to [[WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants Spongebob and Squidward]], which has put a lot of strain on his actual mental health (he's actually acquainted with Nutty Ned because they attended the same asylum). Almost no story ends up good for him, although Mr. Juca just wants to have a normal job and stay away from the gang so he can leave in peace.
