* ScheduleSlip: Completely and absolutely averted. The strip was a couple hours late--''once''. Because comic's server farm exploded.

* XMeetsY: While [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/blog/guardians-of-the-galaxy-movie-review reviewing]] ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'', the author had this to say:
-->Sergeant Schlock can totally be described as a blobby cross between Groot and Rocket, with "I want to eat that" substituted for "I want to steal that."

* ScienceMarchesOn: The Milky Way is consistently depicted as a regular spiral; fortunate, since a barred spiral would have made [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2005-06-11 this strip]] a bit more blatant.

* ShoutOut:
** Both Pronto and Pi were named after the screen names for two regulars on the series forum. Shep's visor resembles Geordi's from ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration''.
** And the general uniforms for the Mallcop Command arc are effectively Next Generation command uniforms with the colors reversed.
** Given his status as the ButtMonkey, Der Trihs' first name (John) may be [[Series/{{Farscape}} one of these]], too.
** If you're in a decently equipped lab, you might see [[Franchise/{{Alien}} Xenomorph-in-a-Tube]]. And one mission had a teraport booth that resembled [[Series/DoctorWho a certain blue police box...]]
*** As well as an adult Xenomorph [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2010-12-16 here]]
** [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2004-11-01 This]]. (With a TakeThat in the commentary beneath.)
*** And the events leading up to that strip involved a salute to Creator/DavidDrake's ''Literature/HammersSlammers'': the mercenary unit Pranger's Bangers, led by Colonel ''Drake'' Pranger, whose head, WordOfGod pointed out, is somewhat hammer-shaped.
** There's a city on Celeschul called [[Creator/IsaacAsimov San Asimov]]. And a [[Creator/DavidWeber Port Weber]] is briefly mentioned.
** [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2008-07-23 LOTA]]. "[[ComicBook/IncredibleHulk I don't think we'd like it when it's angry.]]" Also, [[HulkSpeak Lota is too large for your puny pronouns]].
** LOTA and the Burana-Bots [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2009-11-29 performing]] the opening number from ''[[VideoGame/{{Portal}} Aperture Science: The Musical]] by [[JonathanCoulton Coulton]], [[JohnScalzi Scalzi]], and [[Creator/WilWheaton Wheaton]]''
** Retired Rear Admiral Mikhail von Mauser. Stealthy until Thurl refers to him as [[MickeyMouse "Mikki."]]
** In [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2010-08-16 this]] strip, Tailor says 'We're in a maze of twisty passages, all alike!', a reference to either VideoGame/{{Zork}} or ColossalCaveAdventure.
** In [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2011-04-01 this]] strip, Schlock gets put back together by jumping into a pod and reassembling. Once he gets out of the pod, he says "Whoa! I know kung fu," a reference to Neo in Film/TheMatrix.
*** Later [[spoiler: an ex-Gav]] makes a point of saying he ''didn't'' say "I know kung-fu!" [[spoiler: upon emerging from [[CalvinAndHobbes the Transmogrifier]]]].
** [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2003-11-07 Here is a comparison]] between uplifted Apes and [[Film/TheLordOfTheRings Dwarves]]
** [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2003-11-30 Three]] [[TwoWordsObviousTrope words:]] TheLionKing
** ''Webcomic/{{Sinfest}}''... er... [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2000-11-11 reverse guest comic]].
** Although it was subtle enough to require WordOfGod confirmation, [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2011-12-22 "key lime pie"]] is a reference to [[http://www.erfworld.com/book-1-archive/?px=%2F002.jpg the second]] ''Webcomic/{{Erfworld}}'' strip.
** Gavcorps gets one to CalvinAndHobbes [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2011-12-31 here]]
** ''Webcomic/BobTheAngryFlower'' -- [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2003-07-03 don't make it angry]]!
** [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2010-06-27 One arc]] is named VideoGame/CommandAndConquer.
