** Grace's Birthday Party arc, part-masquerade where the various characters deliberately chose stereotypical outfits for each other in keeping with the 'walk a mile in my shoes' theme of the occasion.
*** Susan starts acting macho and aggressive to Nanase very soon after becoming male. [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2005-10-17 Sarah points out]] that Susan is simply a highly competitive person; now that she's male, and feeling stronger, [[spoiler:it takes the form of an arm wrestling match]].
*** Tedd does note that the first few times anyone is gender bent, their thoughts will be exaggerated, which played a part in everyone's storyline during the event, but the only one whose gender bending mental state was a major plot point was Susan, as it helped her recognize her hangups with men.
*** Later, when Elliot develops the power to morph his clothes and appearance along with his gender his female forms tend to end up wearing girly outfits because he apparently just can't help visualizing them that way.
*** A better example is Tedd; in fact, Grace has less dresses and skirts in her wardrobe than he does despite most of her first clothes being selected by OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent Sarah. He even [[TheTease prides himself on how sexy he looks]] transformed. And [[FeminineWomenCanCook cooks better while female]], just out of habit.

** Way back in 2004, a [[http://www.egscomics.com/sketchbook.php?id=198 non-canon sketchbook]] had some female characters as kittens, with Ellen explaining "Dan has wanted to do a story with me as a cat since 2002, but he backed away from it to keep the transformation gun from becoming 'overpowered'".

*** Largely averted, despite all of the constant GenderBending: Elliot has no interest in remaining female for long and considers his gender-bending PowerIncontinence distasteful, Justin specifically rejects the idea even though it would make him sexually compatible with the object of his unrequited affection, Ellen accepts it without expressing any preference (though there are hints that the LossOfIdentity associated with [[OppositeSexClone Opposite Sex]] CloningBlues was a sore point until she got a new set of memories).

Zigzagged as of "So A Date At The Mall, where Elliot implies he's at least mildly gender fluid and admits that having a cute, sexy superheroine form is pretty damn cool.



* GrandfatherClause: Several of the boys originally had very '90s/early '00s hairstyles; while Elliot's mullet and Justin's bowl cut have been toned down to generic medium-guy-length hairstyles. Tedd's curtains are just as curtain-y as ever, though.

* INeverSaidItWasPoison: Susan was already starting to grow suspicious of [[spoiler: Tom ]]'s behavior, but it comes to a head when she realized he apologized for missing her online the night before. She hadn't said for certain that she would even be on, concluding that he ''had'' been online, but in invisible mode.

** It's [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2003-11-24 implied]] that Tedd has been doing some WEIRD stuff to and involving Elliot for years, meaning they might just be used to beloved family members becoming small furry animals (or something equally bizarre) on a regular basis. After all, if no permanent harm has come to them so far, why would they assume it would start happening now?

* HeterosexualLifePartners: Elliot and Tedd are and ''will always be'' best friends in any AlternativeUniverse where their genders are incompatible with each others sexuality and when they ''are'' compatible, [[JumpingTheGenderBarrier they'll almost always be dating.]]
