** One of these examples is "Chaos", who originally wanted to be known as "[[MeaningfulName Box]]", but settled for "[[GreekMythology Pandora]]" when the former proved too obscure for people to get the reference.

* EveryoneIsBi: This didn't seem to be true at first, but ultimately, of the main eight, only [[spoiler:Justin and Nanase]] appear to have an uncomplicated gender preference. From the beginning, Ellen was bi and Grace wasn't exactly straight; although any male character turned female will be attracted to men and vice-versa, [[spoiler:that's a much greater part of Elliot's life]] (although that means any homosexual character transformed into the opposite gender will actually technically be considered heterosexual while in that form); [[spoiler:Tedd, Sarah, and Elliot]] slowly come to realize that they're attracted to both sexes regardless of form; and Susan is increasingly suggested to be in some way asexual. Furthermore, more recent important characters, such as Noah and Ashley, seem similarly difficult to label.

* DoppelgangerSpin
** Nanase Kitsune
*** [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=85 She creates two images of herself while in a demonstration martial arts match with her boyfriend Elliott]]. Each of the images she creates has different colored hair (green and blue). She uses them to distract him so she can make a sneak attack from the rear. Elliot complains that he hates "these trendy 'which one is real?' illusion attacks".
*** She uses a variation on this early on while fighting a giant blob of goo. In a subversion, ''none'' of the ones fighting the goo are the real Nanase; the real Nanase is rescuing Ellen while the goo is distracted by the duplicates.
** Magus, while "powerless", later [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2005-06-13 used this]] to run away from more or less godlike beings.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Early in the comic Elliot and Nanase share a rather overtly sexual relationship, with the two even having a tradition of making out after sparing matches. This becomes a rather odd point later on, when Elliot is revealed to be borderline sexually repressed, and even Nanase seems a lot more reserved (of course, this might just be in comparison to her new girlfriend, Ellen, who is a lot more open and flirtatious).

Early in the comic Elliot and Nanase share a rather overtly sexual relationship, with the two even having a tradition of making out after sparing matches. This becomes a rather odd point later on, when Elliot is revealed to be borderline sexually repressed, and even Nanase seems a lot more reserved (of course, this might just be in comparison to her new girlfriend, Ellen, who is a lot more open and flirtatious). Recent interactions between Elliot and Ashley seem to be reaffirming Elliot as overtly sexual, insinuating his situation with Sarah was actually more out of character for him due to the two not realizing their feelings for each other were deeply platonic, not romantic.
** While it was always insinuated people could simply be more lax about their magic use before it started getting unwanted media attention, some of the magic use in the early comics was pretty oddly overt. Most of all was probably Nanase, who used to openly use blatant magic in public (she regularly levitated through the crowded hallways of her school, to the point where a joke was made that the Physics Teachers have a pet peeve against her). Even weirder, ''after'' magic gets exposure, almost no one thinks of confronting Nanase about her magic use, in spite of using it publicly in her school for possibly years.

** All aberrations are TheSociopath, but unlike one of his fellow mercenaries, one retains enough humanity to think [[ImAHumanitarian cannibalism]] is disgusting and is enough of a PragmaticVillain to not want to draw attention via killing more people than necessary.

** Pretty much most of the regular cast. They're all pretty much very nice people, but each has a BerzerkButton or two that when pressed can unleash the beast. Elliot, Ellen, and Nanase are among the most powerful and protective of others.
