Added DiffLines:

* AmputationStopsSpread: It's possible to survive being bitten by a walker, but only if the infected limb is removed immediately and the victim receives proper medical treatment. Even when things go well its still possible for people to die from bacterial infection, blood loss or a combination of both, especially if the cut was made with a weapon that was recently used against the undead.


Added DiffLines:

** A far darker example would be [[spoiler:Beta]] who was a pro basketball player who appeared in several commercials before the world went to shit. In this case its used to show just how far he has fallen by [[spoiler:wearing human skin and living like an animal out in the woods.]]


Added DiffLines:

* NeverGoingBackToPrison: Yelled by the escaped convict at the beginning of issue 1. Ironically, Rick's group would later find sanctuary in a local prison that keeps them safe for most of the first compendium. In fact, if [[spoiler:the Governor hadn't drove a tank over the fences and let the zombies in]] they might never have left it.

** Also happens much later in Issue 112 when Rick [[spoiler:attempts to ambush and kill Negan only to find that he has several snipers hidden nearby as backup. Nobody in his group manages to get a single shot off before having their guns blown right out of their hands.]]


Added DiffLines:

** The Governor also does this with [[spoiler:Martinez]] after his corpse is recovered to stir the Woodbury citizens to battle.


Added DiffLines:

** Also [[spoiler:The Governor.]]

Added DiffLines:

* NeverBringAKnifeToAGunFight: Issue 112 has a very memorable scene where Rick, fed up with Negan's rule over the allied communities and brutal murder of [[spoiler:Spencer]] goes to confront him in an ambush. This leads to the following exchange when [[spoiler:Negan one-ups him with a crew of hidden snipers that shoot his gun out of his hand before he can even fire it.]]
-->'''Rick:''' You ever hear the one about the guy that brought a baseball bat to a gun fight... FUCKER?
-->'''Negan:''' [[spoiler:You ever hear the one about the stupid fuck named Rick who fucking thought he knew shit but didn't know shit and got himself fucking killed?]]


Added DiffLines:

* PummelingTheCorpse: Happens to both humans and zombies several times, though the worst by far is what Negan does to [[spoiler:Glenn.]]
-->"You bunch of pussies. I'm just getting started. Lucille is thirsty."

Added DiffLines:

* ArtEvolution: The first story arc was noticeably more cartoony with exaggerated facial expressions. After this the comic becomes much more realistic.

* RapeAndRevenge: [[spoiler:After being raped and tortured by the Governor over several days she tracks him down at his house and brutally tortures and maims him.]]

Added DiffLines:

* AttemptedRape: During the All Out War one of Negan's men attempts to rape a captured prisoner. [[spoiler:This earns him a knife to the throat when his boss catches him red handed.]]


Added DiffLines:

* GladiatorGames: The Governor runs these in Woodbury to keep the citizens entertained and occupied. He even puts walkers along the sidelines to up the danger factor.


Added DiffLines:

* IWillPunishYourFriendForYourFailure: Negan loves doing this. When Rick defies the Saviors he has his friends lined up and chooses one to make an example of to put the survivors in their place. Later on at the Sanctuary it is revealed that Negan has a personal harem of wives that are for him only. If one cheats on him he takes their lover and burns his face as a mark of shame.


Added DiffLines:

* RapeAndRevenge: [[spoiler:After being raped and tortured by the Governor over several days she tracks him down at his house and brutally tortures and maims him.]]


Added DiffLines:

** This trope is also used to show that the two other [[BigBad Big Bads]] The Governor and Alpha are the worst of the worst with The Governor raping and torturing [[spoiler:Michonne]] in retaliation for biting off part of his ear and Alpha [[spoiler:allowing her own daughter to be raped by her group.]]

* AlasPoorVillain: The Hunters were definitely not nice people but its hard not to feel at least a little sad when [[spoiler:Rick's group brutally kills them all to prevent them from following and attacking his people.]]


Added DiffLines:

* CripplingCastration: [[spoiler:The Governor]] has his penis nailed to a board and then severed after raping and torturing one of the main characters. Needless to say, he deserved it.


Added DiffLines:

* FanservicePack: Eugene loses a lot of weight and generally becomes more handsome as the series goes on. Compare this [[http://walkingdead.wikia.com/wiki/File:Dr._Eugene_Porter.jpg image]] of when he first meet Rick's group with this [[http://walkingdead.wikia.com/wiki/File:Eugene_127_(5).jpg image]] of him after the time skip.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Roofhopping}}: Glenn and a few other characters do this to more easily get around the zombies and scavenge for supplies.

Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler: Negan pre TimeSkip had his throat slashed by rick right after a possible HeelRealization. Post TimeSkip he makes Alpha show her vulnerable side right before slashing her throat.]]


Added DiffLines:

** The Whisperers War has many similarities with All out War both have a slow buildup to the new villain who shows up to ruin a happy moment by [[spoiler: killing some characters.]] Rick is then forced to take a passive stance on the conflict much to everybody's anger while he plans to take action in secret. [[spoiler: Both times he ends up getting help from a Savior who pulls a HeelFaceTurn with the leader of the villains having their throat slashed right after a moment of vulnerability.]]

* TheApocalypseBringsOutTheBestInPeople: While a lot of people became [[HumansAreBastards bastards]] after civilization fell to the walker hordes there are several who became much better people. One good example would be Axel from the prison arc. Before the world went to shit he was serving time for armed robbery, afterwards he ended up becoming one of Rick's greatest allies and was an important asset to the group during their time at the prison.
* ArrowsOnFire: [[spoiler:The Whisperers use these during the Whisperer War story arc to burn the Hilltop to the group and kill several of its guards.]]
