* FollowTheLeader: Though not the first adult comic strip artist, nor even the first underground comics cartoonist, Crumb did become the most famous one in his field, inspiring countless graphic artists and cartoonists to draw whatever they damn well pleased. An entire industry of sex comics, politically subversive counterculture comics and autobiographical graphic novels can be directly attributed to them.



* RealLifeWritesThePlot: Outside of his parodies, LSD-inspired comics and FunnyAnimal work, Crumb is best known for autobiographical material drawn people and events in his real life. Crumb also drew some of the artwork for Creator/HarveyPekar's ''ComicBook/AmericanSplendor'', which is in the same vein, although not quite as grotesque as Crumb's often-disturbing depictions of his sexual history and fetishes.

* HeManWomanHater: Many of Crumb's comics were blatantly misogynistic, depicting abuse, assault and rape of women. His portrayals of women [[ItGetsBetter got better]] in the 1980s, however.

* NonstandardCharacterDesign/SharedUniverse: Aline Kominsky-Crumb would draw herself in ''Dirty Laundry'', while almost everything else was drawn by Robert. This led to an in-comic argument over her art skill. In a few ''Dirty Laundry'' stories, their daughter Sophie drew herself as well.

Became famous again in the 1990s as the subject of the critically-acclaimed biopic ''Crumb'', which is similar in many ways to ''ComicBook/AmericanSplendor'', the semi-autobiographical adaptation of the life of fellow underground cartoonist Harvey Pekar, which Crumb also contributed to. Crumb is a character in the movie adaptation of ''American Splendor'', played by James Urbaniak. Other artists heavily influenced by Crumb include [[ComicStrip/ZippyThePinhead Bill Griffith]], [[ComicBook/CartoonHistoryOfTheUniverse Larry Gonick]], and (early) [[ComicBook/{{Maus}} Art Spiegelman]].

Crumb's earliest comics could also be considered an early example of FurryFandom, being that he and his brother mostly enjoyed reading FunnyAnimal comics and drew these kinds of comics as children.

* FurryFandom: Mostly enjoyed and drew only FunnyAnimal comics when he was younger; later in his career, he became less interested in this genre, and rarely draws anthropomorphic characters these days.

* CreatorThumbprint: Among his non-sexual interests include classic cartoons and comics, blues and jazz music. He has an express dislike for modern-sounding music, recounting that he "fell asleep" at Music/TheGratefulDead and Music/JimiHendrix concerts, and thought that certain modern blues musicians would be more appealing to him if they played ''acoustic'' guitars, finding the sound of the electric guitar to be intolerable. Crumb also founded a retro-based band, the Cheap Suit Serenaders, which plays 1920s jazz, blues, country, Hawaiian and pop songs, although he hasn't played with them since the late 70s. (Another known member of the band, Terry Zwigoff, later directed the documentary ''Crumb'', and some mainstream films like ''Film/GhostWorld'', ''ComicBook/ArtSchoolConfidential'', and ''Film/BadSanta''.)
