* DemotedToExtra: While Frohman quickly falls in love with Judith Mossman and a random female rebel, he casually pushes past Alyx Vance, who almost never appears for the rest of the series. Of course, when she does next appear, [[http://www.screencuisine.net/hlcomic/index.php?date=2006-08-09 she gets caught by the Combine]] and it's Frohman's fault. The notes for that comic make note of this, saying that Livingston had originally planned for the final panel to be reversed - Alyx in the foreground and Frohman plus captors far in the background, but then realized that it would make no sense to do so considering Alyx's complete lack of involvement in the rest of the comic.

* TooDumbToLive: Frohman, who [[http://www.screencuisine.net/hlcomic/index.php?date=2005-10-17 bypasses a puzzle by flinging him and his boat over an obstacle by shooting exploding barrels]], [[http://www.screencuisine.net/hlcomic/index.php?date=2006-04-05 nails boards to his feet to cross sandtraps without alerting antlions]], and [[http://www.screencuisine.net/hlcomic/index.php?date=2005-09-23 gets the "take pictures of you" and "chop you up with a whirling blade of death" flying drones mixed up at every turn]]. Also done with the first ''Counter-Strike'' server Frohman's accidentally launched into. And again, surviving zombification by having the headcrab starve to death on his head.

And even that wouldn't be enough if he hadn't screwed his last chance by shooting at the Vortigaunts, who quickly give up on saving his life. Frohman dies soon after.]]after]].
