* ArtEvolution: Despite maintaining its visual style, comic grew significantly more detailed over time. Strangely, old characters' style gets carried on, leading to some contrast between them and new ones.

Added DiffLines:

* ContinuityNod: as backgrounds grew more detailed, those began appearing often, like rather obvious [[TalkingWeapon Sword of Sycophancy]] hanging on the wall or more subtle Script-o-matic standing somewhere in the background.

"''[[http://evil-genius.ru/ Evil Genius]]''" is a simplistic Russian StickFigureComic. The plot revolves about the eponymous Evil Genius having to deal with both pesky forces of justice and somewhat inadequate ability of his own henchmen. The comic is loaded heavily with LampshadeHanging, [[ShoutOut]]s and general [[GenreSavvy]]ness.

"''[[http://evil-genius.ru/ Evil Genius]]''" is a simplistic Russian StickFigureComic. The plot revolves about the eponymous Evil Genius having to deal with both pesky forces of justice and somewhat inadequate ability of his own henchmen. The comic is loaded heavily with LampshadeHanging, {{ShoutOut}}s and general {{GenreSavvy}}ness.

Not to be confused with [[EvilGenius the Trope]] or [[Videogame/EvilGenius the Video Game]] by the same name.

Main characters:
* Evil Genius himself. Calm, savvy (dangerously so), and in a decent physical shape to boot.
* Bill the MadScientist. Surprisingly emotional guy. His Dooms Day Machines always blow up. Always.
* Bob the Guard. Somewhat straightforward, he takes pride in his job.

Recurring extras:
* Frank the Cook. Surprisingly BadAss, because of so many ninjas running through his kitchen on daily basis.
* Devil.
* Igor. [[TheIgor Exactly what is says on the tin]].
* Vittorio. A promising upstart villain who portraits himself as opposition to classical villains.

!! "Evil Genius" provides examples of:
* ArtEvolution: Despite maintaining its visual style, comic grew significantly more detailed over time.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Evil Genius himself, UpToEleven.
* ElaborateUndergroundBase: Of course. It's also riddled with [[SecretPath secret passages]].
* TheIgor: He's even named Igor.
* Lampshade Hanging: Too many examples to list.
* MadeOfExplodium: Bill's {{DoomsdayDevice}}s tend to explode, to the point when he has a lot of problems with one that's supposed to explode.
* NoNameGiven: Everyone just calls the Evil Genius "you" or "boss".
* RunningGag: "You're fired!" And yes, it gets {{Lampshaded}} too.
* SurroundedByIdiots: Can't blame EG for feeling that way occasionally.

!! Strips provide examples of:
* ArtShift: Done for one April Fools Day [[http://evil-genius.ru/images/art/Manga.jpg strip]].
* {{BFG}}: Bob the Guard has one that's bigger than him.
* BreakThemByTalking: [[InvertedTrope Inverted]]. When bargaining over the phone with ninjas who have kidnapped Bob, Evil Genius breaks their leader by not saying a single word.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: In one early strip Evil Genius has to ask author for help.
* BodyDouble: Evil Genius tries it once via CloningBlues. It doesn't work out.
* ChefOfIron: Frank the Cook.
* ConcealmentEqualsCover: [[InvertedTrope Inverted]]. When a Wild West-themed villain tries to hide behind a table during a firefight, he gets perforated.
* TheChessmaster: As evil conference arc shows, Vittorio is one, just as Evil Genius himself. [[spoiler:Though the former actually works for the latter.]]
* DealWithTheDevil: Devil ended up having to mop the floors of the base. For free.
* DungeonBypass: How to deal with a DeathCourse leading to angry dragon guarding the artefact?
* TheGuardsMustBeCrazy: Or they would be, if not for their boss. They wear keys that match none of the cells.
* LightningCanDoAnything: Including breaking down a door. How? SCIENCE!
* LiteralGenie: Bob trains one of the zombies to kill other zombies in exchange for brains. Just don't tell the guy he's a zombie too, he's the fifth one.
* MagnificentBastard: Evil Genius manages to drive a paranoid agent of good to suicide just by staying dead. Even GrimReaper is impressed.
* TheManBehindTheMan: Vittorio actually works for [[spoiler:Evil Genius]].
* MugglesDoItBetter: when a hero wielding Crystal Lenzes of Light, Crimson Sword of Fate and Power of the Sky shows up, Bob meets him with old good kinetic weapons.
* PlotArmor: {{Lampshaded}} the very first strip, no less.
* ShoutOut: Several:
** EvilOverlordList: A subtle one: when [[spoiler:Rudy]] the traitor asks Evil Genius about his plan, Evil Genius first shoots him, and then says "No."
** {{Hellsing}}: "One of those upstart vampires siding with good" shows up, wearing red cape and wielding two huge handguns.
** When Evil Genius creates a device that conquers the world, with the first use of it he conquers [[{{Videogame/Pandemic}} Madagascar]]. It gets commented on by Bob the Guard.
** One of the background heroes infiltrating into the base looks a lot like {{ThePunisher}}.
* PermaStubble: Bill, of all people, sports one during ZombieApocalypse. It magically appears whenever he brings out his [[GatlingGood minigun]].
* RecursiveReality: in one strip Evil Genius is shown drawing that very strip.
* ReversePsychology: Apparently, the best way to distract agents of good from your evil lair is to put a sign saying "There is no evil base here" [[spoiler:on an island with no evil base]].
* WhatMeasureIsAMook: Minions themselves think so.
