* ShirtlessScene: Mediochre, Melinoe and Joseph each get one. Mediochre's is [[FanDisservice completely non-Fanservicey]] because he's physically fifteen and [[spoiler: being eaten by a worm]] at the time; Melinoe's ''would'' be Fanservicey if she wasn't covered in her own blood at the time (mind you, [[FetishFuel some people like that]]...); and Joseph's... well, [[Fanservice the fans deserved something]]...

The '''Mediochre Q Seth''' series, otherwise "The Mediochreverse" or just "The Mediochre Series" - although that last [[IThoughtItMeant sounds unfortunate]] – is an in-progress five-part UrbanFantasy series by Calum P Cameron. He started writing it while in high school, primarily out of boredom, but also out of a desire to see if he could write a story about a [[MarySue unique and powerful]] [[Series/DoctorWho Doctor-like]] individual while having them [[DeconstructedTrope remain realistically human and fallible]].

* BadassTeacher: Mediochre and Joseph are both university professors. Joseph actually has an apprentice with him during most of his adventures – although the apprentice is also a {{Badass}} and doesn't really need protecting.

* ExpositoryHairstyleChange: As a child, Dhampinella has long hair and a demure EmotionlessGirl personality, in contrast to her adult self's BoyishShortHair and stoic {{Badass}} personality.

* BlondGuysAreEvil: Antler.



* BlondesAreEvil: Guinevere Spencer certainly qualifies.



* BlondGuysAreEvil: The Scruffs – although an argument could perhaps be made that Valentine is more Blond Guys Are NotEvilJustMisunderstood (and Really Bad at Thinking About Things).
