** In an example from the comic itself Finbarr Saunders' catchphrase of "fnarr fnarr" is a popular response in the UK to double entendres, even by people who don't know the character.

Added DiffLines:

** The animated cartoon of Roger Mellie characterises Roger as a pompous Londoner and his assistant Tom as a soft-spoken Yorkshireman. This is not specified in the strips themselves, though it works very well to contrast the characters.

Added DiffLines:

** Early on, "Mrs Brady Old Lady" had a different, more grotesque design, always travelled alone, and would usually annoy the general public with her inability to adjust to the modern world. As characterised since the late 90s, she is always seen with her friend Dolly, more family members are seen, and she will often explain medical problems to anyone much to their detriment. One point of consistency is her late husband Sidney, who is sometimes pictured via flashback in early strips, though expressly unseen in later strips. The strip is intentionally never clear as to how and when he died.

* RunningGag: Tommy "Banana" Johnson was a strip that appeared in the very first issue, featuring a boy with a huge artificial banana that he keeps putting forward as an unlikely solution to other peoples' problems, until an annoyed policeman [[AssShove shows him where he can shove it]]. The strip has repeatedly appeared, often in anniversary issues, with exactly the same events and dialogue but with the art altered to parody new developments in comics (photographic fumetti, manga-style, bad Poser-style digital art, etc...).

* AllThereIsToKnowAboutTheCryingGame: One strip titled "George Best Is a Cinema Pest" was about the late footballer George Best disclosing "spoiler" endings to certain films (all of which fit the trope, including ''Film/TheCryingGame'') to incensed people in a cinema who ''didn't'' know the ending.
