* BreakThemByTalking: Helen senior does that to Mell by suggesting her mentally picture a scene of condensed, crystallized, [[RuleOfThree extra-crispy]], [[OverlyLongGag weapons-grade]] FanDisservice.
* BriarPatching: [[http://www.webcomicsnation.com/shaenongarrity/narbonic/series.php?view=archive&chapter=9942#strip5 Confessed by Dave here:]] "If that's the way they want it, I'll just have to '''cope''' with living on a tropical island with two scantily-clad women."



* BrokenFaceplate: The state of Dave's eyeglasses symbolizes the state of his sanity. For most of the comic's run, his glasses are intact but represented as opaque. Towards the end when Dave finally realizes the great secret responsible for much of his life's path, his glasses are suddenly represented as clear, showing that he can see clearly now. [[spoiler: And then one of the lenses cracks, as a not-so-subtle way to show that Dave is half-cracked.]]
* ButtMonkey: Madblood and Dave for much of the comic. They still don't have anything on [[spoiler: Victorian Madblood, who ended up the sole consort of a planet of shapeshifters who decided they all liked his form best.]]
** 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.]]
* BuxomIsBetter: Mell acknowledges the assets of the Avatar of Lovelace, Madbloods A.I.

* AwesomeYetImpractical: The bane of mostfloati mad scientists. The dangerously sane (by Narbonic standards) Mell lampshades this when she draws an analogy between a highly advanced but thoroughly impractical laser flintlock pistol designed by Madblood to mad science in general.

* EscapedFromHell: The minor character Seth is dragged into Hell by a visiting demon. Several years later, he returns when a gate is opened into the beyond. Apparently, [[TookALevelInBadass he's picked up SEVERAL levels in badass]] on the way. Not to mention a really big axe.

* 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.)

* 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.
