* DeliberateValuesDissonance: The whole RapePillageAndBurn thing of the northern barbarians (Typh's people), including their [[AndNowYouMustMarryMe abduction of southern women for brides]]. [[spoiler:And the fact that what pissed off Typh's father wasn't that he was trying to rape someone, but rather that the someone was a ''man''.]]



* DoubleStandardRapeMaleOnMale: {{Averted|Trope}}[[spoiler:. Typhan-Knee's AttemptedRape of a young male in his youth has the subject crying as he holds and undresses him and Typhan-Knee sported quite the horrific SlasherSmile expression while he did it]].

* ArtEvolution: Though it likely has at least part to do with the comic's change in management, but compare Tiffany [[http://www.exiern.com/2005/10/10/kzaatt/ as she first appeared]] to how [[http://www.exiern.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/Exiern-2013-09-05-06.jpg she does in the latest story arc.]]

**Happens again, due to getting a new artist, just look at [[http://www.exiern.com/2016/07/19/deposed/ Tiffany now!]]

Originally written by Drowemos (despite the obvious connections to [[DrowTales dark elves]] and [[{{Emo}} whiny teenagers]], it's actually [[SdrawkcabName "some word" spelled backwards]]) and illustrated initially by Drowemos (2005), then by Studio Boom (2005 - 2010) and currently by Shipeng Lee of DrowTales (2010 -). Later, the comic was sold to Dan Standing, as Drowemos got tired of working on it. The writing duties have since been handed off to Thomas Knapp, the writer for Webcomic/MegaTokyo's Endgames light novels. The writer duties then changed again to current owner Scott T. Hicken.

* GreatBigBookOfEverything: Faden's spellbook. It isn't evil per se, but it does seem to dislike Tiffany and delivers information in the most [[http://www.exiern.com/?p=1020 insulting manner]] possible.
-->'''Tiffany''': ''It keeps calling me a [[DumbBlonde bimbo]].''
-->'''Peonie''': ''It's not calling... Hey this picture kind of looks like you. Right next to the definition of a bim... Never mind.''

* InnocentBigot: Teresa. She doesn't seem to have realised that virtually all her "compliments" towards Tiff are nearly all racist in some way, which has the effect of making her something of a JerkAss. However she does genuinely admire Tiffany to the point of calling her "one of the country's greatest heroes" and seems to consider her a close friend. This only serves to wind Tiff up even more.

* ManIFeelLikeAWoman: Referenced but subverted in [[http://www.exiern.com/?p=48 this comic]], when Tiffany looks down at her new equipment and says, "You know, this really should turn me on." [[spoiler:It turned out later Typhan-Knee was ArmoredClosetGay.]]

* MusclesAreMeaningful: Suddenly losing her biceps and abs is one of the first signs that TheMindIsAPlaythingOfTheBody effect of Tiffany's curse has occured, making her weak enough to hurt herself when she slaps someone, or conversely quite strong and muscular when she needs to go to town on some baddies or completely deflate the machismo of her brother.

* [[AccidentalMarriage Accidental Engagement]]: Tiffany has managed to land herself one to Peonie's father the King, but no one has told ''her'' yet. Part of the reward for rescuing Peonie was '''''[[ExactWords A]]''''' Royal Hand in marriage and since [[GenderBender she]] no longer qualifies for Peonie's and has [[http://www.exiern.com/?p=979 insisted]] on the ''full'' reward...[[MemeticMutation Its good to be the king]].

[[spoiler:She beats the truth out of Peonie offscreen after the identity crisis arc and she and King Urtica agree to call it off.]]



* AManIsNotAVirgin: Defied, in that Tiffany has VirginPower. Then inverted, in that the princess, Peonie... does not.


Added DiffLines:

* GeniusBruiser: Niels, the easily eight-foot-tall knight who is a juggernaut in battle, is also a deeply philosophical man. While he doesn't like the northern tribes for making his sister a concubine and then getting her killed in ThePurge ([[spoiler:she turns out later to have joined them voluntarily and then fought to the death]]), he also believes there's no point in a CycleOfRevenge. He also lampshades the trope, reacting derisively to people thinking he was DumbMuscle by pointing out that ManipulativeBastard King Urtica isn't the type to ''want'' DumbMuscle.


Added DiffLines:

* TheGoodKing: Urtica, surprisingly. He very briefly seems like a stereotypical fantasy king and displays a StayInTheKitchen attitude towards Peonie, but it becomes rapidly evident that he's actually a ManipulativeBastard and is trying to instill the same skills of court intrigue in her. And he's firmly on the heroes' side.

Added DiffLines:

* ProphecyTwist: Turned on its head in that the prophecy is revealed after the fact, but Tiffany's sword turns out to be the legendary North Wind, a blade that [[ExactWords will never fail its wielder]]. [[spoiler:Meaning among other things that it will deliberately throw fights if it views them to not be in its wielder's best interest.]]

* {{Transsexual}}: One (but just one) of the Gender Bent priests seems quite thrilled by the prospects of his newfound femininity. (The rest find his/her reaction to be ''extremely'' annoying.)
** The current writer writes Typhan-Knee more or less as a transman. Typhan even started insisting people to pronounce his name as Tyhan-Knee and not Tiffany.

to:

* {{Transsexual}}: {{Transsexual}}:
** Typhan-Knee/Tiffany, DependingOnTheWriter. Drowemos wrote her as quite literally a straight woman who merely remembers being a straight man. Dan Standing changed this to Typhan-Knee having been either a gay man or a trans woman, who was then transformed into a cis woman. Scott Hicken seems to have gone the other direction, treating him/her as a trans man.

Added DiffLines:

* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: King Urtica initially appears to be a stereotypical fantasy king with a StayInTheKitchen attitude to his daughter, but soon proves himself a master of court intrigue and [[TheGoodKing a pretty good ruler]], all things considered. He's also got a sense of humor matching Tiffany's.
