** A rare subtle example is a small vocal tic for Embla, which according to seasoned gamers is a match for [[SystemShock SHODAN]].

* LifeEmbellished: Tim Buckley describes Ethan as a "stylized version" of himself (his avatar looks more or less like Ethan with shorter hair), and Lucas likewise of his best friend. Ethan has gradually evolved away from this (or so we hope considering how stupid he is). It's visually apparent in [[http://www.cad-comic.com/cad/20070615 this comic.]]

* CharacterDevelopment[=/=]CharacterDerailment: [[spoiler:Ethan suddenly acquires competence when he uses his cellphone as a wire. It's been theorized that this has something to do with Ethan and Lilah moving from boyfriend-girlfriend to married couple, where Ethan's behavior wouldn't really work. Or he did it as part of his daily seven seconds of focus.]]

** Rob. Very seldom will anyone say anything remotely nice to or about him. Ethan once pushed a vending machine on him purely ForTheEvulz and then [[KickTheDog jumped on top of it with Rob still laying under it]]. Rob's hideous crime? He's a "frat boy" who only likes a handful of super-popular games like ''WorldOfWarcraft'' and ''Franchise/{{Halo}}''.

** Faildruid, a hapless WorldOfWarcraft player/character who happens to be a {{bear|sAreBadNews}} (and later an [[TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons owl-bear]]). His crime is basically being a very naive newbie.

No Pantheon pimping, plus this is natter.
** In fact, some consider this worse than LightNovel/{{Kampfer}}, which got [[SoOkayItsAverage more decent reviews]] than Ctrl+Alt+Del. There's a legitmate reason why Ethan himself is the [[Pantheon/{{Disgraces}} epitome of this]].
