** Many commentators for [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/?p=1584 this page]] noted that "bunny boy" and his fairy friend Snuffle aren't just good with Rubik Cube patterns, they're ''geniuses'', especially Snuffle since she has never seen one before:
*** '''Ameya:''' At the fewest moves competition today, the best solve was 23 moves. God's number is 20. Rabbit op o.o
*** '''Melkior:''' That's a cute idea, to reference the relatively recent mathematical discovery that any Rubik's Cube requires no more than 20 moves to solve it.
*** '''Condar:''' Nice nod to the God Number of the Rubik's Cube; the mathematician in me approves.
*** '''Mturtle7:''' Took me a minute there to realize Snuffles just solved the Rubik's Cube in 30 moves...IN HER HEAD. And Bunny-boy just reached God's number. (I have never solved a Rubik's Cube in my life) I think I understand now how Red's class could learn advanced calculus without thinking about it. They're all amazingly intelligent (although sometimes in different ways, it seems).
** Every time "bunny boy's" cube was shown at least one person would point out that its colors were impossible (big comment here: [[note]] '''Ritchie Thai''': Just noticed this cube is provably unsolvable. Sometimes pieces are put together incorrectly after being taken apart, but here the coloured stickers themselves need to be rearranged. In panel 1 shows centers of red in front, yellow right, blue bottom. The red white yellow corner piece proves white center is on top. The red green edge piece proves green center is next to red, and must be on left. The unseen orange center must be at back. So blue center is bottom and white center is top, opposite sides, but panel 4 shows a blue white corner piece. This arrangement of centers is pretty non standard too, but some cubes are like that. For some reason we're only ever shown 5 of 6 colours, even in panel 5. Impressive internal consistency of the cube within the page. It rotates correctly without colours jumping, and has that familiar black interior Rubik's cubes have. [[/note]]).

* TheFaceless: Tom has made something of a RunningGag out of never showing his real face anywhere online. Twitter posts claiming to have a photo of him appear regularly, but invariably there will be something in front of his head or it'll be a picture of something else entirely.

** "Annie and the Fire" is not just the MindScrewdriver for "Divine" (or at least parts of it [[spoiler: the "bone spikes" were indeed Anthony's -- he claimed some psychopomps tricked him into using his hand to make an "antennae" so he could see Surma again but failed to mention that Surma was now part of Annie; fortunately Zimmy's "message" came through]]) but also answers questions from "The Tree" [[spoiler: what happened to his hand]] and "Sneak" [[spoiler: Why didn't anyone know about Annie until she came to school (Surma didn't want Gunnerkrigg to know about her) and what he was doing since Surma died (trying to find answers by looking for psychopomps)]].

* ProstheticLimbReveal: When Antimony's father Anthony finally appears in person after years of absence, Annie is shocked to discover that one of the things that's changed about him is a prosthetic right hand, which she hadn't noticed until she spoke to him in private. He shuts down her attempts to question him about it immediately after.
