* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: The three most prominent female characters are the doppelganger Imogen Verity (who usually appears blonde), the brunette (albeit with green highlights) Serendipity Sargasso, and the witch Hexene Candlemas. Imogen is the untouchable movie star ice queen, Serendipity the loyal and starstruck secretary, and Hexene the pugnacious hex slinger. This trope also shows up with the Salem Sisters, the close harmony group/witch coven, with Hyacinth, Verbena, and Lily respectively (in the roles of crone, mother, and maiden).

* GripingAboutGremlins: The ''City of Devils'' Gremlins appear to be highly reminiscent of the film version, and are generally named for the shock of white hair on their bodies. One has giant white eyebrows (Brows), and the other has massive muttonchop sideburns (Chops). As a race, they're obsessed with candy, clever (if weird) inventors, and allergic to sunlight.

Each side has a long-standing feud that manifests in their chosen career paths. Both do law-enforcement, but the werewolves work for the Sheriff's Department, while the wolfmen are regular cops.
