* AscendedExtra: Fox's mom and dad become main characters for the most part in friendly hostility. Though they appeared in a very short appearance in one story line in BoyMeetsBoy. Uncle Rafi also was just a one-time unnamed pervert oggling Harley's sister breastfeeding her kid in public in the previous comic.

Friendly Hostility ended in July 2009. It is currently replaced with the new comic, ''OtherPeoplesBusiness,'' which has already shaken the fanbase only a few weeks into its run. Because the thought of a world without Stan doing a webcomic is terrifying.

** Word of God is that the comic ended when it did so that the Cerebus Syndrome wouldn't deepen, [[spoiler: in the sense that it ends with a note of hope rather than seeing Fox and Collin's relationship's eventual breakdown pre-''[[OtherPeoplesBusiness OPB]]''.)]]

** A more accidental - and meta - version occurs with the launch of ''OtherPeoplesBusiness'' - some fans have expressed concern that they won't be able to look back on F.H.'s fluffy and romantic moments without thinking about the impending doom of the sequel comics. It remains to be seen whether FanDisillusionment, AlternateUniverse - ing, [[AbandonShipping abandoning of the 'ship]] or good old FanonDisContinuity will win out.
* EarnYourHappyEnding: outcome #1 suggested by the author, which would have seen Fox and Collin mending their relationship after the surprisingly sensible move of attending counselling, resulting in kids and a happy marriage. Some fans have opted to see this as the "true" ending and sidelined OtherPeoplesBusiness as an alternative continuity. The author herself has said this is okay by her.
* EasilyForgiven: Collin's parents. Even though he claims he has more cunning motives for reconciling, ''OtherPeoplesBusiness'' suggests that he ''did'' actually forgive him for the two-or-three years they utterly abandoned him. Fox even lampshades this. Also [[spoiler: Leon, although whether Collin recognises him as the carjacker is up for debate.]]

''[[http://friendlyhostility.com Friendly Hostility]]'', by Sandra Stanley, is the SpinOff series of an earlier comic called ''BoyMeetsBoy''. It's one of those webcomics that's difficult to describe.

* {{Irony}}: Present throughout the comic, but especially notable at the very end/switchover to OPB. For example, by the end of the comic, sociable and likable Fox finds himself with only one real friend (Derringer) while anti-social Collin has built up a network for himself. An even longer reaching example occurs between the end of FH and the beginning of OPB: in ''FriendlyHostility'' Fox was keen to be a dad, but the commentary stated that Collin didn't like kids and convincing him to deal with them would be a problem. The irony strikes at the beginning of the sequel comic: [[spoiler: Fox doesn't seem to have fatherhood on his mind at all, as he is both single and slightly paranoid...''Collin'', however, has a stepdaughter -- he might not get on particularly well with her, but she didn't stop him marrying Leon.]]

* HotMom: Nefi, as pointed out by several characters in one comic, though as time goes on and the character age, she slowly starts to lose her figure and youthful appearance.

Added DiffLines:

* UselessBystanderParent: Betsy is eventually revealed to be this. Initially, she seems like the main instigator of Collin's woes, but when she finds out that her son is gay and in a relationship with Fox, it becomes clear that she does what she does to keep her ''husband'' happy, deferring to his judgement on "things like these," but hiding Collin's homosexuality so that she can continue to see her son.
