* FunnyOctopus: One of the secondary characters has a pet miniature tentacle monster, [[GenreSavvy Genre Savvily]] named Rape-kun. Despite the name, he is completely harmless, and oddly cute. It's mentioned that the owner doesn't have the password to unlock Rape-kun's "Adult Mode". Make of that what you will.

* NeverFoundTheBody: When Ian was last seen fighting a magical duel that ended with the building they were in collapsing on top of him, [[http://www.errantstory.com/2004-05-05/226 Sarine mentions that only the other participant's body had been found when she left, but there was still plenty of rubble to search through]]. They're both GenreSavvy enough to expect they'll see him again, though.

* GroinAttack: Ellis finds himself on the receiving end of an [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Acid Neuter Arrow spell]] after [[http://www.errantstory.com/2012-09-21/5700 annoying Meji a little too much]]. Good thing he's MadeOfIron.

* SoWhatDoWeDoNow: Having just [[spoiler:killed a physical god, stopped a genocide, and ordered the elves to stop their attacks on the half-elves]], Meji is confronted with this dilemma: [[spoiler: as a PhysicalGod herself, [[http://www.errantstory.com/2012-01-23/5422 what does she do tomorrow?]] ]]

* BookEnds: The covers of the [[http://www.errantstory.com/2002-12-11/31 first]] and [[http://www.errantstory.com/2011-05-30/5236 last]] chapters both show Meji sitting on the ground, leaning back against a tree trunk. Differences in her appearance and surroundings reflect the changes that have taken place throughout the story. (The [[http://www.errantstory.com/2002-11-06/16 prologue]] and [[http://www.errantstory.com/2012-02-13/5426 epilogue]] covers also form a pair, but with far less symbolism.)

* HumanShield: In his first appearance, [[http://errantstory.com/2003-03-19 Jon attempts to use Meji as one.]] Unfortunately the guards don't really care and try to kill him anyway.

* SelfDeprecation: A staple of Poe's, which sometimes [[http://www.errantstory.com/2007-06-27/673 finds its way into the comic itself.]]
-->'''Meji:''' So, um... you're Jon's long lost, estranged sister, who's been turned into an emotionless magic ninja assassin by some secret order of monks hidden in the mountains...
-->'''Sara:''' ... yes.
-->[[{{Beat}} (beat)]]
-->'''Meji:''' That's... like, really, kinda freaking stupid, if you don't mind me saying. And I thought your brother's whole "hitman with a troubled past and a heart of gold" bit was bad.
-->'''Ellis:''' Yeah, and this is coming from a magic using, half elven heiress with unusual hair and eye colours, and a talking animal companion... so that' really saying something there.

* InnocentFanserviceGirl: Subverted. Elves don't have a cultural nudity taboo, but elf women are most certainly ''not'' this, no matter what [[ShowWithinTheShow certain human play writers would have you think.]] Elves go fully clothed most of the time just like the humans do, they just aren't embarrassed to be seen naked in situations where it makes sense to them to be naked, e.g. while bathing... and even then, [[http://www.errantstory.com/2004-09-22/275 they can get self-conscious if some smartass seems to enjoy the sight of them a little too much.]]

* EstablishingCharacterMoment: [[WordOfGod Poe]] considers [[spoiler: Ian's]] [[http://www.errantstory.com/2013-01-01/5865 first appearance]] to be one for him. That didn't stop most of the readers from being surprised at his eventual gradual FaceHeelTurn, but then, [[KnightInSourArmor Poe is notoriously cynical about these things.]]
-->'''Poe:''' So not much to mention here besides how this page really did do a pretty good job of showing [[spoiler: Ian's]] entire personality in one scene. ''"I'll totally [[spoiler: punch a priest in the gut and steal the clothes off his back]] if I think I need to do it in order to get what Iím after, but I'll try to feel really bad about it afterwards because I like to think I'm a nice person."''
