* 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.

* SocietyMarchesOn: His retrospective on [[http://basicinstructions.net/basic-instructions/2015/11/10/how-to-fake-a-smile.html this comic]] mentions how the joke went from absurdist to mean-spirited over time as "hobo" went from a reference to a 1940's itinerant laborer to a general term for the homeless in common usage.
