* AndTheAdventureContinues: The comic was in the middle of a storyline which saw Momo and her friends and family against the newly appointed Waru Princess who sends robot duplicates of Momo to attack them. However Namco decided to close up Shifty Look. So the story was hastily finished with the heroes managing to easily beat the bots and the Queen beating a hasty retreat. After which we get an epilogue from Momo about how un-normal her life is but she will continue the good fight. End comic.

* HourOfPower: Momo's superpowered form only lasts a short while before she's changed back to normal. This is [[AvertedTrope Averted]] in NamcoxCapcom and Spiral Chaos, where Momo is given the power to transform in real life for indefinite periods of time.
