* FauxAffablyEvil: Faden. He's pretty much Exiern's version of ''SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker'', cracking jokes and being friendly even when he is trying to kill you. He's in the evil game as much for the lulz as he is the power.

''[[http://www.exiern.com/ Exiern]]'' is a fantasy webcomic about a reluctantly female barbarian. The plot, which began as a riff off of [[http://www.thewotch.com/?epDate=2003-05-14 an early storyline of]] ''TheWotch'', is relatively simple: Evil wizard Faden, about to fall to the sword of hulking barbarian warrior Typhan-knee, tries to [[BalefulPolymorph transform the hero into an animal]] and somehow transforms him into [[GenderBender a woman]] instead. [[FirstLawOfGenderbending Since it can't be undone]], the barbarian, now going by the name of Tiffany, goes on a variety of adventures.

** Later Teresa gets one as well, after Typhan-Knee explains the root of his animosity he has for her. Specifically, that Teresa having been a transwoman even before the curse, he was hoping she'd be more supportive of his current situation(Him basically being a transman now),but he didn't get that from her. As seen [[http://www.exiern.com/2015/08/13/syllabus/ here]] and [[http://www.exiern.com/2015/08/18/careful-wording/ here]]. Also continuing Typhan-Knee's own heel realization from above, she does admit that most of his anger towards Teresa were unfounded.



** Later averted when Typhan-Knee decided to still identify as male.



* OnlySaneMan: Peonie, and Tiffany take turns at being this, depending on what the situation is.

Added DiffLines:

* Size change: Through out the comic Tiffany's height changes. Some could be played off as perspective but often times it's obvious she has become shorter... [[http://www.exiern.com/2011/05/18/didnt-she-used-to-be-taller/]] [[http://www.exiern.com/2011/07/28/little-thing/]]
Much taller than Peonie and slightly taller than Olivia here[[http://www.exiern.com/2014/09/25/its-only-a-pattern-if-you-recognize-it/]] Tiff appears shorter than Olivia now... [[http://www.exiern.com/2014/11/04/varying-views/]]Here she appears shorter than Peonie...[[http://www.exiern.com/2014/11/18/its-a-bon-jovi-song/]]

* 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.]]

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.

* 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.
