* MoodWhiplash: Sydney [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/2501 has a brief]] HeroicBSOD after realizing [[spoiler: she might have died prior to Krona's reset]], hugging Maxima for comfort. Maxima, [[TheStoic being Maxima]], is at a loss for words, eventually reassuring Sydney they have on-base counselors to help her - and getting cut short when [[BrickJoke the bladder snooze alarm goes off]] and Sydney races away with a shouted "[[PottyEmergency I have to pee]]!"

* TheAirNotThere: An aversion -- Sydney's shield does not permit air to permeate, causing her to become dizzy after a few minutes of continuous use. Sound (which involves the transfer of vibrations, rather than of physical air molecules) seems to get through just fine.

* OneOfUs: Sydney definitely is, so it's likely the author is as well, particularly in light of the rampant ConversationalTroping that occurs InUniverse.
** Confirmed when the author linked to Wiki/TVTropes during the fundraiser for the site makeover.

* SensualSpandex: Dabbler [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/2542 goes to ARCHON's pool wearing one]], and it leaves '''nothing''' to the imagination, as her groin is covered - front and back - with [[SpeechBubbleCensoring speech bubbles reading]] "This thing is ''really'' tight" and "'''Seriously you guys'''".
-->'''Sydney''': [[DeadpanSnarker Does it blow up like a balloon if you fart in it]]?
* SexForServices: By Deus towards Sciona, who needs a McGuffin but can't afford to buy it with money. It is framed as both getting something out of the deal as Sciona is being said to "not have been a woman in a long time" and Deus gets to add somekind of Drow -expy to his list of conquests.

* {{Teleportation}}:
** Harem is the main teleporter in the comic, with MesACrowd aspects to her power as well.
** Sydney's Comm-Ball gives her a partial teleport ("Telepresence") [[spoiler:and later gains the ability to teleport herself to where Holo-Sydney is]].

* UndisclosedFunds: While the exact number was not given, at first glance Sydney assumed that her first biweekly paycheck was an ''annual'' paycheck. Which probably makes it mid five digits at a minimum. Justified by the fact that superhumans are literally one in a million, so they are a finite and irreplaceable resource, so the government is willing to pay quite a lot to keep them under control.

* XRayVision: [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/868 Averted]] (to the relief of all the female supers), and also discussed: if a perverted superhero wanted to use x-ray vision to peep in on women in the shower ... what's stopping him from using x-ray vision when they're ''not'' in the shower? And even then, all he's going to see is the woman's skeleton, since this is ''x-ray'' vision.

* YouWouldntLikeMeWhenImAngry: Sydney is a fairly out of shape comic book nerd, but when she's angry enough, she instinctively pulls off physical feats she shouldn't be capable of. Like [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/241 judo throwing a grown man by his]] ''[[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/241 tongue]]''.
