* BlockingStopsAllDamage: Early on Lucca had to deal with a [[VideoGame/MegaMan Metool]] that harmlessly bounced off a shot from the Wondershot with its helmet. In the end, Lucca couldn't beat it, and Alex was left alone to die. [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BFG Then Alex found the inventory menu]] and ''bullied the current antagonists into giving '''him''' the helmet.''

Added DiffLines:

* SmallRoleBigImpact: The Shadow King. He barely shows up even in the flashbacks and his role in Proto Man's flashbacks basically encompass only ten pages, give or take. He's also KilledOffForReal, according to Kevin, so the likelihood of him turning up again is next to zero barring [[ChekhovsGun a sudden twist.]] His notability is so small that he's barely mentioned on any of this comic's pages on this very site. ''Nobody even knows what he looks like.'' He's also the guy who was [[spoiler:the direct catalyst for ''everything'' after Mother Brain's demise, including his actions bringing the Sovereign to Videoland, and her killing him caused her to go on a rampage, destroyed many game worlds, and eventually killed Kevin and Hope in the final battle before Videoland changed into its current form.]]

** [[http://www.captainsnes.com/2002/10/21/214-marios-selective-amnesia/ 15 years ago]], Bowser challenged Mario to try and rescue Princess Peach from his clutches. And asked him to pick up some milk. [[http://www.captainsnes.com/2017/10/13/904-remembering-what-matters/ 15 years after that initial strip]], Mario realized... he forgot the milk.

* SpeakNowOrForeverHoldYourPeace: As [[http://www.captainsnes.com/2011/11/11/739-prelude-to-a-kiss/seen here]], [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI Ultros]] plans to interrupt Locke and Celes's wedding at this point, claiming "they'll never expect that!" Edgar, meanwhile, [[GenreSavvy plans to grab his Auto-Crossbow to perforate anyone who dares interrupt the ceremony right after saying the phrase.]] Fortunately for all involved, [[http://www.captainsnes.com/2011/11/14/740-a-single-moment-of-happiness/ Ultros sleeps through the line.]]

* GenreSavvy: While many woes in the comic come from people being the ''[[WrongGenreSavvy wrong]]'' kind of genre savvy, [[FinalFantasyVI Edgar]] tends to get it right more often than not. For instance, when Celes and Locke's wedding rings had gone missing, Edgar quickly and correctly deduces that Locke had accidentally stolen them from ''himself'' because of how nervous he was. Later, during the actual wedding, Edgar as the Master of Ceremonies includes a line in his script where he pulls out his crossbow and "shoots the first person who so much as ''twitches''" after asking if anyone has any reason to object to the wedding. [[spoiler:The only reason the crossbow ended up being unnecessary was because the people who PLANNED on crashing the wedding ended up sleeping through the entire thing by accident.]]

* PoorCommunicationKills: Bob mentions Lisa having been beaten, bound, gagged and Touched. Based on his word choice, Marle immediately assumes that Alex is some sort of dangerous pervert who violently kidnapped and molested a girl, and promptly aims a crossbow in his face (the girl was a dangerously violent psychopath whose mind had been corrupted by the BigBad).

* ThePowerOfLove: Inverted (the weakness of a lack of love). A naive RealityWarper tries to give a pep talk to a clown in order to help him beat the people curbstomping him, telling him to call things like upon [[http://www.captainsnes.com/2011/12/21/750-heartless-victory/ his pure and loving heart]] or [[http://www.captainsnes.com/2011/12/23/751-words-of-true-inspiration/ the spirits of everyone who ever loved him.]] This clown happens to be [[MonsterClown Kefka]], so not only do these inspirational speeches fail, but thanks to the RealityWarper girl's power causing him to call upon these concepts as they apply to him, [[EvilCannotComprehendGood they actually make him weaker]]. The last one causes him run out of HP on his own.
