Added DiffLines:

* SpontaneousMustache: * Hector is able to grow facial hair by concentrating for a short time, which is a cause of jealousy from Jeremy whose inability to grow noticeable facial hair is a RunningGag.

** Jeremy had this problem one other time: every time he opened his mouth, something stupid came out (which was depicted as a hillbilly-looking mini-Jeremy leaping out his mouth shouting things like "Shagadellic!" and "I think Adam Sandler movies will stand the test of time.") Eventually he goes to Britney for help, who illuminates him to the fact that most males go undiagnosed with this same affliction for years.

Added DiffLines:

* NinjaProp: In one strip, the insincerity of Jeremy's promise to behave is represented by his speech bubble featuring several footnotes leading to disclaimers in unreadably small print. His mother physically takes hold of the speech bubble and brings it closer to her face so she can read the fine print.

* SelfDegredation: Twofold on the back of the first treasury, ''Humongous Zits''. On the back is a quote: "''Zits'' is the worst name for a comic strip since ''NewspaperComic/{{Peanuts}}''". The quote is from Charles Schulz.

* JerkAss: If Jeremy wasn't their kid, they would have beat the shit out of him years ago. [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold He does have his kinder moments, though.]]
** JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: His kinder moments are ''very'' few and far between, though.

* MustHaveCaffeine: Phoebe

to:

* MustHaveCaffeine: PhoebePhoebe way well be the embodiment of the trope. She lists "caffeine" as her religion when she applies for a job at Fourbucks Coffee, and has an espresso machine in her locker. In one strip she's carrying a latte as big as herself down the hallway with a dolly, and in another, Jeremy taps her on the shoulder to ask her something and she hits the ceiling - literally - in shock, having drunk more than usual for finals.

* SickeninglySweethearts: Richandamy, based on a real couple from the authors' lives, who appear to have achieved some kind of symbiosis and seem [[MakeOutKids locked in a permanent embrace]]. The other characters' attitude towards them alternates between a strange sort of admiration and utter disbelief.
** In one strip where they temporarily break up, the other characters can't pronounce their names separately, saying "Richand Amy" or "Rich Andamy." The mere attempt causes physical pain.

* SoapBoxSadie: Hector's former girlfriend Autumn was like this. Usually she was the StrawVegetarian type, giving Jeremy the whole "meat is murder" routine (which he always seemed to have a clever comeback to) but there was one storyline where she tried a FreeTheFrogs variation with locusts, at their school. (RealityEnsues when the Hazmat unit shows up.)

* IWasQuiteAFashionVictim: Jeremy asks his dad what he was like at 15. Apparently, he had a large poofy afro, bell-bottom pants, ridiculously tacky jacket and shirt, and had braces and granny glasses. Oh, and he played the clarinet. The image scares Jeremy enough it gets rid of his hiccups.
