* WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer: The Knifeketeer's schtick, in that he stabs many of his problems into submission. When the Knifeketeer comes under suspicion of attempted murder, his "defense" is that he always wants to stab everyone. Turns out he thinks that "defense" is a kind of stabbing in its own right.

The other superheroes consider him something of a joke because it's hard to maintain a rogues gallery when all your enemies are dead.

* AuthorAvatar: Scott shows up as himself in the comic, and is also "Omnipresent Man" for good measure. (And despite looking the same, [[TheAce Rocket Hat]] is [[http://basicinstructions.net/basic-instructions/2010/1/6/how-to-kill-off-a-fictional-character.html explicitly a different person]].)

The real Scott considers his comic persona to be the closest thing the strip has to an overall villain, mostly because he's such a jerk.

* RougeAnglesOfSatin: A frequent issue of Scott's - the comment pages typically have a number of corrections in them, and he fixes misspellings as they are pointed out to him. [[http://basicinstructions.net/basic-instructions/2010/2/3/how-to-correct-your-mistakes.html Lampshaded in the comic.]]
** I'll say [[http://basicinstructions.net/basic-instructions/2010/5/5/how-to-bother-someone-back.html this comic]] is more representative of this trope. Also serves as a TakeThatAudience.

* ComicallyInvincibleHero: Rocket Hat. And he does it without the audience ever seeing him move.



* InvincibleHero: Rocket Hat. The mortal-but-badass type.
