*** Joe/Joseph being a BadAss PapaWolf in ''The Nativity Story'' is parodied and subverted in this, as he is constantly [[MindOverMatter getting thrown around]] whenever he tries to fight supreme evil beings. First, Ruktarusk does this to him when Joe tries to stop Ruktarusk from killing Maria. Then, when Ruktarusk is fully distracted by Thestor, [[spoiler: the Devil himself]] throws Joe against a wall to tempt the young mother. Of course, it doesn't work. Joe is even a bit of a ButtMonkey for good angels, as Gabon's way of setting him straight when he considers deserting his bride-to-be is to show him visions of a BadFuture, in a very MindRape-y type way that looks like [[Series/{{Heroes}} Tim Kring]] meets Creator/CharlesDickens. ([[BadNewsIrrelevantNews Before telling him that he needn't be afraid of Gabon himself]]!)

** His mother was also a BadAss. She clotheslined a JerkJock who was three times her strength successfully, hit Gabon with a 2x4 before she realized who it was, and even pulled off a successful ShutUpHannibal against the Devil himself! His stepfather tries, but is [[GivingTheSwordToANoob much less competent/lucky at doing so]].

* PlausibleDeniability: Averted without explanation for most of the worlds of Inktacto. [[HandWave Then again]], Inktacto ''is'' [[AllThereInTheManual part of the Grapharino Galaxy]], and Grapharino's Physicalia is an [[AlternateUniverse allegorical universe]] not unlike [[LordOfTheRings Middle-earth's]] (or even {{Narnia}}. Only difference, really, is more ScienceFiction-oriented plot elements and way fewer HighFantasy ones. So AlternateHistory helps cover some tracks.

** Just as a [[InstantAwesomeJustAddNinja Mikloche Warrior]] was sent to Mantith to keep a Drismabon away from baby Minshus, another one is sent to defeat Mordred's power. He succeeds at defeating Mordred's contract and robbing him of his dark powers forever; but ultimately fails to save Gwen's reputation.

* EveryoneIsRelated: Heavily subverted. Other than a few marriages resulting later on, almost nobody is blood-related ([[BizarreAlienBiology or for that matter, Ink-related]]) to anyone else (important)! Yet, while blood relations are severely lacking among major cast members, everyone is "connected" in more abstract ways.

* ShootTheShaggyDog: Think the story [[CerebusSyndrome can't get any darker]]? By the ''Final Hope'' timeline, [[spoiler: Astrabolo]] [[HumanPopsicle has returned]]. The PTG (UN substitute) has now become the PeoplesRepublicOfTyranny, with [[spoiler: Astrabolo]] as TheCaligula. [[spoiler: The original Voyagers]] are dead. All the characters we loved are dead or sent into hibernation/muellexic freeze. If [[spoiler: Astrabolo]] gets [[WhoWouldBeStupidEnough desperate enough]], he may release [[OmnicidalManiac Melchar]] ([[SealedEvilInADuel and Alhox]]) from the Muellex. [[spoiler: Port Metaball]] is a nuclear wasteland. Our new heroes are a black dude whose family was killed in a fire, a girl who [[VideoGameLives has unlimited lives]] if she remains a technical virgin, a monk, a chaplain/mechanic, a [[SpoiledSweet rich girl]] with a RapeAsDrama [[BreakTheCutie motif]], and the grandniece of our favorite WalkingWasteland. They must stop the old evil from assembling a DeathRay that can wipe out an entire city at a time, by finding the hidden blueprints first. Meanwhile, signs point to TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt.

** Whixtitout can't decide if it's MedievalJapan, TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture, TheNewTens, or a planet-sized HiddenElfVillage (albeit, NeutralNoLonger.)

** Subverted in-universe on Neothode, as the population is so used to being bullied by [[ReligionOfEvil Astrabolo's cult]] that they are [[DyingLikeAnimals too far beyond]] the DespairEventHorizon [[ApatheticCitizens to care about]] whether the weirdness in their environment [[TheMasquerade is covered up or not]].

** [[{{Jesus}} Minshus]] (TheMessiah,) Richard Ribando (a BadassPreacher) and Clandish Consto (a JackTheRipoff SerialKiller) all have their fates linked to each other's [[MindScrew by some long-dead ancient guy's dream about a zebra]]!

** Perhaps the most egregious example is Cybomec, subverted in that it was only ''a'' Cybomec [[spoiler: the one possessed by Richard Ribando]] that joins, not ''the'' Clandish "Cybomec" Consto that nearly killed everyone. [[spoiler: [[ItWasHisSled He becomes Preamble]] instead.]]
