* SanDimasTime: Averted. Ness at one point goes back in time to stab himself through the hands with a pair of spikes, hoping to freak out some mafia goons in the present by the sudden unexplained appearance of [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic suspiciously-Christ-like hand wounds]]. Said goons note that he always had those wounds - one of them then gives a lengthy explanation about why making a change in the past and expecting it to only take effect an arbitrary amount of time later doesn't make sense. And he promptly [[TemporalParadox disappears into a singularity]] after Ness un-does the stabbing.



* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness - Pokey, Ness, and Jeff. Some other characters tend to dip into this as well.

[[MindScrew Mind-flayingly]] [[SurrealHumor bizarre]] SpriteComic barely based on ''EarthBound''. After stealing Giygas's $44,000,000 retirement fund, Pokey reunites with Ness and uses the funds to hunt for treasure. At least, that's how it starts out. What follows is a barely coherent acid trip of an adventure, as Ness, Pokey, Jeff and Mr. T battle monkeys, [[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 Mr. B Natural,]] soul-stealing photographers, the Eagleland education system and pretty much everything they meet.
