-->'''Khrima''': I heard that evil is [[HisOwnWorstEnemy its own worst enemy]] so I'm coming up with a plan that's completely me-proof!\\
'''Argent''': That's a metaphor used to imply the folly of evil. It isn't true.\\
'''Khrima''': Oh.\\
''[BeatPanel]''\\
'''Khrima''': Well this was a big waste of blueprint paper.

** Every traveling party must have exactly three people [[http://adventurers.keenspot.com/d/20020118.html because there's a law that says they can't have more]]. This explains why every TraumaInn has the same number of beds.
** [[http://adventurers.keenspot.com/d/20040417.html Near the end]] when Cody suggests he might have been able to join the team if they didn't have nine characters already. Since there's only one named OptionalPartyMember, this suggests Cody and Drecker are MutuallyExclusivePartyMembers as well.

Inevitably parodied [[http://adventurers.keenspot.com/d/20050115.html in this comic]], in which, at the beginning of a flashback, the characters complain about the sudden lack of quality in the art (which is drawn in the style of the early strips).
* AttackItsWeakPoint: Karn decides that a robot's glowing red power core must be its weak spot and attacks it. [[http://adventurers.keenspot.com/d/20020411.html It doesn't work out the way Karn hoped it would.]]
* AwesomenessIsVolatile: While preparing a really big spell, Ardam says: [[http://adventurers.keenspot.com/d/20050903.html "Incidentally, if I catch on fire or explode or something, that's probably normal."]]
