** In episode 538, General Grievous tells Obi-Wan that he sees his future, that his flesh will be divorced and his robes will fall empty. Exactly what happens when Vader kills him and he becomes a force ghost.
** A pretty funny one occurred near the beginning of part four and concluded with the end of part five. As the other players are, in character, trying to explain to Corey the history of the campaign and the Orb of Phantasticora, he sarcastically asks if he can replay this cutscene later. Cue the end of part five, where they start talking about the Orb, he has no idea what they're talking about, they inform him that they've already explained it to him, and he asks if he can replay that cutscene now.

** During the senate scene in Phantom Menace, Chancellor Valorum [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0139.html complains]] about the frailty of organic bodies and says he wants to set up a committee to investigate turning people into cyborgs. At the time, it looks like one of many oneoff statements from a bored {{Cloudcuckoolander}} politician.

* GoshDangItToHeck: During the earlier strips, "frakking" is the harshest the language ever gets. The only exception is in strip #11, when Jim exclaims, "No, we just kick ass!" which happens before [[MoralityPet Sally]] joins the group. It's subverted during the [[TimeSkip Episode IV campaign and onwards]], wherein Sally is a couple of years older and a bit more of a smart mouth, though they still refrain from using any of the harsher words in an effort to maintain the comic's PG rating.

** The author's notes under [[http://darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0050.html 50]] describe how the players' universe differs from our own and how the lack of the Star Wars franchise affects its pop-culture. The last line says; "The Comic Irregulars exist and are making a screencap comic based on Harry Potter", and if you click on it, it will take you to a fake Comic Irregulars site with an one-shot comic about Literature/HarryPotter... and an author's note with a variation on the original and pointing at yet another fake site with an one-shot comic on Theatre/TheSoundOfMusic, which has yet another variation of the author's note with yet another link at the end, which points to another fake page and so on and so forth. What makes this truly fascinating is the dedication to details: every single fake page has its own logo, color scheme, and tweaked FAQ, Cast and Archives pages. Oh, and every one-shot gag comic is actually hilarious with its own RPG aesop to boot. It goes a level deeper for every 50 strips of the main comic, so at this point it is very long indeed.

* RightForTheWrongReasons: Corey on occasion. As noted under WrongGenreSavvy, he's more familiar with video games and their tropes, but their roots in tabletop rpgs and the GM's flexibility put him in this trope from time to time.

** Corey. He understands fantasy and sci-fi to an extent but is heavily conditioned by tropes specific to video games. Thanks to an experienced flexible GameMaster and the relationship between video game rpgs and their tabletop roots, Corey ends up being right for the wrong reasons fairly often.
