* Determinator: In a genre prone to {{Schedule Slip}}, Penny Arcade stands out as one of the few webcomics out there that updates on a very consistent basis even when {{Reality Ensues}} at the expense of Gabe whether it's swine flu (in which PA reached out for guest strips while Gabe recovered) or badly cutting his thumb.

* AccidentallyAccurate: It's probably not intentional and just coincidence, since the implications of the gift aren't mentioned, but [[http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2013/12/16/ the December 16, 2013 comic]] has Mary, the mother of Jesus, saying, "Who gives a baby myrrh?" [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myrrh#Religious_ritual Myrrh]] was used as an embalming ointment... as in for the dead. It would be like giving a coffin at a baby shower.

To make a long story short, the myrrh was [[CallForward symbolic]], which if you know [[SacrificialLion what it's symbolizing]] doesn't make it any less disturbing.

* AscendedFanon: Tycho and Gabe were not originally intended as {{Author Avatar}}s, but when fans assumed such was the cause, Jerry and Mike decided to roll with it. Even then, the characters are mostly distinct from the creative team's.

* {{Fingore}}: Mike once cut his thumb clear to the bone without even realizing, something he wrote into the comic. In [[http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2011/3/30/ the accompanying strip]], Tycho was less than concerned.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Both Jerry and Mike have said that without Robert Khoo, their business manager, they would have sold themselves into slavery for what, at the time, would have seemed like a really good idea. For example: their book rights.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: [[http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2007/02/21/ Olympus]], an actual dream of both of them, is an arcade utopia which will never come to fruition because neither Gabe or Tycho have millions and millions of dollars.
-->'''Gabe''': Imagine it's like a really classy Dave and Busters, like with dark hardwood bars, glass rooms full of high-end audio and video equipment... Khoo said not yet.\\
'''Tycho''': He said we didn't have a million dollars.
