Added DiffLines:

** Although less prominent in the comic, also [[{{Nerd}} Seth]]. His date [[spoiler: [[GenderBender turns into a man]] ''and'' dumps him before the movie even starts]], he gets invited to a Valentine's Day party only [[spoiler: to be [[DraggedOffToHell dragged down to Hell]] (and dumped post-mortem by his new date for the demon indirectly responsible for it)]], and even [[spoiler: when he [[EscapedFromHell comes back]] as a demon-slayer]], nobody gives him any respect. Plus, if [[WordOfGod the writer's notes]] are to be considered canon, he winds up becoming housemates with [[MonsterRoommate aforementioned fallen angel]]. Although the epilogue does suggest that [[spoiler: some [[HornyDevils cute devil girls]] at least find his axe-skills impressive.]]

* ScienceRelatedMemeticDisorder: Mad genius is an actual genetic condition, and Helen manages to find a cure for it... but with the side effect of decreasing the subject's intelligence and amplifying their WeirdnessCensor to an astonishing degree. (Helen also says she didn't use it [[spoiler: on Dave]] because it makes the user impotent, but WordOfGod is that was a joke.)

* {{Seppuku}}: [[http://www.webcomicsnation.com/shaenongarrity/narbonic/series.php?view=archive&chapter=10219#strip4 Dave wanted to do this and asked Helen B. to be his second]], whe he mistakenly thought, that his internet-girlfriend Lovelace is in reality [[spoiler: Professor Madblood. He was off, but nor far off. It was Madblood's sentient computer]]. She refused, of course.

* DeconstructorFleet

to:

* DeconstructorFleetDeconstructorFleet: The entire comic reads somewhere between an AffectionateParody of ForScience and [[MakeMyIndexLive all its related tropes]], and a simultaneous [[DeconReconSwitch Deconstruction-Reconstruction]] of them.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Polyamory}}: Not in the main comic, but [[spoiler: ''The Astonishing Excursions of Helen Narbon & Co.'']] ends with a OneTrueThreesome between Helen, Dave, and [[spoiler: the Vesuvian scientist [[BrainTransplant occupying Mell's body]]]].

Added DiffLines:

* GuyOnGuyIsHot: Several MadScientist ladies are far more interested in imagining [[MinionShipping Dave and Titus making out]] than they are in [[{{Buttmonkey}} Professor Madblood]] and his silly life-achievement reward.


Added DiffLines:

* NighInvulnerable: Titus Misanthrope has this reputation. Earns it too. Some of the female [[MadScientist Mad Scientists]] find it kind of hot, actually.


Added DiffLines:

* PunctuatedForEmphasis: Done on occasion. Once {{Lampshaded}}:
--> '''Titus''': That many periods in one sentence [[SanitySlippage can't be good for you brain]].
--> '''Helen''': Nor yours. [[PreMortemOneLiner Sorry, Titus.]]

* FakeOutMakeOut, sort of

to:

* FakeOutMakeOut, sort ofof. The other party was [[OfCorpseHesAlive in no position to complain on the matter]].



* HugeHolographicHead

to:

** Although WordOfGod suggests that it might actually be the [[FallenAngel Heavenly qualities]] of his voice that are causing the 'splosions.
* HugeHolographicHeadHugeHolographicHead: Treats the idea with its usual irreverence:
-->'''Madblood:''' PEOPLE OF EARTH, YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE! I choose to address you as a 300-mile holographic projection against the ionosphere solely to secure the attention of Helen Narbon, whom I regret I am unable to join for dinner this evening. I apologize profusely and assure Miss Narbon that when Earth is brought under my heel, she, the planet's loveliest blossom, may have [[ShinyNewAustralia the continent of her choice]]. Except Europe. Mother dibsied it.
* HypocriticalHumor: [[GenreSavvy Titus Misanthrope]] ''hates'' BondVillainStupidity. In fact, he will [[MotiveRant rant and rave]] ''at length'' about it, and completely forget to keep track of his prisoner.

* ManIFeelLikeAWoman
* MeanwhileInTheFuture
* AMillionIsAStatistic: Played for laughs in the epilogue.

to:

** [[GenderBender Male Helen]] asks Dave "Has Mell ''always'' worn those teeny-tiny plaid skirts?". Dave just nods and grins.
* ManIFeelLikeAWoman
ManIFeelLikeAWoman: Double-subverted. Dave is initially thrilled to be girlified, but eventually observes that "[Breasts] are useless without the thrill of the chase."
* MeanwhileInTheFuture
MeanwhileInTheFuture: "Dave Davenport Has Come Unstuck In Time". Probably justified; Dave's consciousness is bouncing around between three of his past and future selves without his conscious control, so the events are ordered as he experiences them.
* AMillionIsAStatistic: Played for laughs in the epilogue. [[spoiler: It takes all the energy in the universe to send something back in time, so "we siphon it from other universes where they probably don't want to exist as much!"]]

* AFormYouAreComfortableWith: Almost verbatim when [[http://narbonic.com/comic/march-8-13-2004/ the envoy of Hell]] appears to Dave, Artie and Seth. Well, granted, not a form that ''Dave'' is comfortable with.
