** Andrew Verres acts this way regarding his secretary, [url=http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2011-01-12]Lavender[/url], though it may just be that he [[InterspeciesRomance isn't into Uryuoms that way]].

* RememberedICouldFly Grace spends a few panels trying fruitlessly to escape from a full nelson before realizing that she's a [[VoluntaryShapeshifting shapeshifter]], and she can easily slip out by [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=1238 turning into a tiny squirrel.]]
* RememberedTooLate: In "So a Date at the Mall," Tara the griffin is manipulated into attacking Elliot by an Immortal because she mistakenly believes that Immortals are incapable of lying. The catch is that she should have already known that this is incorrect. Her wife Andrea previously informed her that one of the differences between their world and the main world is that Immortals in the main world can lie all they want. Unfortunately, she was too [[DistractedByTheSexy distracted to maintain this information,]] and was only reminded [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=2174 long after it ceased to be relevant.]]

* MadeOfEvil: * Aberrations [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=2303 according to the resident expert]]:
-->'''Ed Verres:''' They're former humans who gave up empathy and humanity to live indefinitely by murderous and parasitic means while ''literally'' being incapable of remorse. There's no way to "cure" that that wouldn't kill them anyway. And no, I'm not being poetic. You undo the vampirism, you undo what's keeping them alive.

* OurVampiresAreDifferent: The creature that [[spoiler:[[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2010-05-21 attacked Susan and Nanase in France]]]]. It's strongly emphasized by Susan that it wasn't ''really'' a vampire, but it was vampire-like enough that they may as well call it one. While they aren't TheUndead, aberrations do use ImmortalityImmorality and the comic eventually makes vampire an official synonym[[note]] or hyponym, it isn't unambiguously clear yet[[/note]] for aberration.

** Justin is very much into geek media. His last name, Tolkiberry, is a portmanteau of [[Creator/JRRTolkien Tolkien]] and [[GeneRoddenberry Roddenberry]].

** Magic apparently has a sense of humor, and will make people more likely to get spells that are appropriate for their names. Hence the InUniverse explanation for why Catalina Bobcat has an affinity for cat based transformations.

* NoBisexuals: The strip has a rather unusual take on sexual attraction and gender identity, which led to [[InternetBackdraft vast, multi-site flamewars]] on whether it was [[IneptAesop doing the GLBT contingent,]] and bisexuals especially, a disservice. In this comic, being subject to a GenderBender causes one to gain heterosexual tendencies appropriate to the gender being changed into (basically, straight people become bisexual while homosexuals see no real change in which gender they're attracted to), so El Goonish Shive is an aversion of this, as much of the cast have been bi, albeit only temporarily. Ellen (a magical duplicate of Elliot permanently turned into a girl) is also bisexual but has decided that she isn't able to deal with dating men, largely because she realizes her attraction to guys is a purely artificial construct forced onto her by SufficientlyAdvancedTechnology. She now identifies as a homoromantic bisexual.
