Added DiffLines:

* FollowTheLeader:[[invoked]] One strip satirized this idea. Hobbes finds Calvin building a snowman. Not one of his usual grotesque snowmen, but a mundane snowman that a normal kid would make. Calvin says that he would only be successful if he stopped trying to be original and just copied what everyone else did.

--->'''Hobbes:''' If paper feathers are all it takes to fly, don't you think we'd have heard about it before?\\
'''Calvin:''' It takes an uncommon mind to think of these things, Hobbes.\\
'''Hobbes:''' I'd agree with that.

--->'''Calvin:''' I've lost my marbles.\\
'''Hobbes:''' [with a huge grin] Everyone suspected as much.\\
'''Calvin:''' Well, I hope somebody finds them, then.\\

* {{Rule 34}}: It's the example given in the common image illustrating the concept. And, yes, there really is. Badly drawn, to boot.
** [[UpToEleven Even worse, there's Rule34 of the image used to illustrate Rule 34 using Calvin and Hobbes]].

* RaptorAttack: Calvin writes a report about Suzie being attacked and killed by a pack of ''Deinonychus'' as a means of curbing overpopulation. [[ScienceMarchesOn Science hadn't marched on yet]] and the raptors lack feathers, but are definitely closer to real size than, say, ''Jurassic Park'' velociraptors (which, Watterson noted in commentary on the strip, caused him to put the dinosaur fantasies on hiatus because he didn't want to compete too much with cutting edge CGI).

* NoseNuggets: Calvin walks outside in the cold, then wrinkles his nose before making an AsideGlance and saying, "Don't you hate it when your boogers freeze?" [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in an anthology, where Bill Watterson wrote, "I hope some historian will confirm that I was the first cartoonist to use the word 'booger' in a newspaper comic strip." [[note]]For the record, [[http://www.cartoonistgroup.com/subject/The-Booger-Comics-and-Cartoons-by-Bloom+County.php he wasn't]]; ''ComicStrip/BloomCounty'' beat him to it by 5 months.[[/note]]

-->'''Hobbes:''' A new decade is coming up.\\
'''Calvin:''' Yeah, big deal! Hmph. Where are the flying cars? Where are the moon colonies? Where are the personal robots and zero gravity boots, huh? You call this a new decade?! You call this the future?! '''HA!''' Where are the rocket packs? Where are the disintegration rays? Where are the floating cities?\\
'''Hobbes:''' Frankly, I'm not sure people have the brains to manage the technology they've ''got''.
'''Calvin:''' I mean, ''look'' at this! We still have ''weather''?! Give me a break!

* FandomSpecificPlot: A good number of Fanfic[=s=] are about Calvin as a teenager or adult; often including putting him in a more obviously romantic relationship with Susie. Some of these involve Calvin interacting with his own kids and introducing them to Hobbes. He may share {{Imagine Spot}}s with them, or end up stressing out about their behavior the way his own parents used to. As one strip put it:
-->'''Calvin''': You're enjoying this, aren't you Mom?\\
'''Mom''': Karma is a funny thing, isn't it?



'''Calvin:''' It must be difficult going through life with no sense of purpose.\\
