* NoAntagonist: While it can be argued George might not have gotten to such a bad place if he lived in a less oppressive society where he could freely express the extent of his heartbreak, there are no truly antagonistic characters. Grief and depression are what George struggles with rather than overt discrimination or targeted unkindness. In fact, aside from one thoughtlessly hurtful comment from Charlie, everyone who knows what George is, is kind and wants to help him.

* RedOniBlueOni: George is blue, and Kenny is red. They even somewhat acknowledge/discuss this trope when Kenny buys a red pencil sharpener for himself and a yellow/orange-ish one George picked out for George. Kenny shows surprise George didn't pick blue. All of George's relationships fit this mould, actually, and there's some hints Kenny's best friend is also a blue to his red.
