* HistoricalInJoke: Rouyaa, the genie who inspired ''Series/IDreamOfJeannie'', is brunette. The original intention was to have Jeannie be brunette, but then the only actress who really nailed the part was the blonde Barbara Eden.

Added DiffLines:

* GoodAngelBadAngel: Jean's good angel is her genie self with a pink/white costume, wings, and a halo, and her bad angel is her genie self with a red costume, devil tail, and horns. Rodge also has a variation where he has apparitions of Neil as his original self and as Natalie giving him different advice as to why not to hit on ladies (Naturally, 'Natalie' acts as if she's Rodge's girlfriend he's cheating on).

* ExactWords: during the Hazzard County Arc. Boss Hogg wished "Make sure the Duke Boys and the General Lee won't bother me anymore." The wish turned the Duke boys [[AuthorAppeal into Duke girls]] and made the General Lee disappear. Apparently the magic decided and not Jeanie because she didn't know the General Lee is a car.

* GenderBender: Jean, of course, as well as several of her victims. Also Neil sometimes, but unlike Jean, he never gets stuck as "Natalie" permanently. It is the [[TransformationComic main theme]] of the comic.
* GenieInABottle: All genies have 'totems', which they sleep in. Possessing a totem makes one the master of that totem's genie. While not all totems are bottles, Jeanie's and Aracelli's are.

to:

* GenderBender: Jean, who goes from a male human into a female genie. It's kinda his fault that he's a girl, though, since the genification process drew on his idea of course, as well as what genies were like for his transformed self, and his mental image of a genie was the titular character of ''Series/IDreamOfJeannie''. Jean also does it to several of her victims. Also other characters, most often Neil sometimes, but unlike Jean, he (though Neil's never gets stuck as "Natalie" permanently. It is the [[TransformationComic main theme]] of the comic.

Because the comic is somewhat based on the iconic [[Series/IDreamOfJeannie television series]], expect many of the same situations to apply. The series also tends to cross over with other classic television shows, like ''{{Bewitched}}'' and ''Series/TheDukesOfHazzard''.

* BedlahBabe: Jean's new look after being turned into a genie. In [[PinkMeansFeminine pink]], no less.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: Inherent in the premise. Jean is a ''Series/IDreamOfJeannie'' fanboy with genie fantasies. The beginning of the comic sees these fantasies come true... with ''himself'' ([[GenderBender Or herself]]) as the genie and his friend as the genie master.

* CastFromLifeSpan: A genie's magic is this to an extent: they can die if they overuse their powers on a broad (read: "global") scale for too long, presumably at the behest of their master. It is heavily implied that the last known genie to suffer this fate was [[spoiler:Eva Braun.]]

* ComedicSociopathy: Jean has little regard for the consequences of her actions unless they come to harm herself. Had their situations been reversed with Neal becoming the [[GenderBender female]] genie, Jean would have been only too happy to [[http://jeaniebottle.com/?comic=jeanie-bottle-75 use his wishes to "do" Neal.]] She turned a nerd into a girl and didn't bother to turn him back due to her obsession with her own problems and possibly even spite (it certainly looked like spite to him). While her reason for turning a fishing boat captain into a woman was understandable, her DisproportionateRetribution against another member of the crew was less so. She regularly abuses people, especially [[ButtMonkey Neal]], for her own needs without any respect at all for theirs. This trait of hers is usually PlayedForLaughs.

* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: As with all comics of this type, Jean will likely never be changed back no matter what she does. Made blatantly obvious by the fact that her powers are best summed up as "can do almost anything except transform her body back to being male", and the sitcom-inspired environment means StatusQuoIsGod

* JackassGenie: Jean, on more than one occasion, usually due to ComedicSociopathy or in response to some slight, real or imagined. Once it was a clear-cut case of self-defense.



* JerkassGenie: Jean, on more than one occasion, usually due to ComedicSociopathy or in response to some slight, real or imagined. Once it was a clear-cut case of self-defense.



* LoopholeAbuse: Push comes to shove, Jeanie has to obey or fulfill her master's wishes. That doesn't mean she doesn't put her own spin on things (like getting rid of the Duke Boys [[GenderBender by changing them into girls]]) either as a LiteralGenie or a JerkassGenie depending upon what RuleOfFunny demands. For example, when the fishing boat captain wishes for Jeanie to "Make a dutiful wife", Jeanie uses ExactWords to justify turning ''him'' into a dutiful wife.

** Jeanie and Aracelli are constantly at loggerheads over Neil, Jeanie because she's possessive and he's a "safe" master and Aracelli because she actually loves him.. and he's a "safe" master. If they actually sat down and talked it over they could probably work out their differences in about five minutes. Especially since Aracelli's current master, Rodge's niece Caley, is a little girl and likely the safest master of all.

* ThirdLawOfGenderBending: The harem outfit comes with Jean's duties, but early in the series, she spent a whole comic using her powers to experiment with female clothing (including a ''Franchise/SailorMoon''-esque magical girl, [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Rogue]] and WesternAnimation/KimPossible's cheerleader outfit) in a "G-rated" ManIFeelLikeAWoman montage. This ended up being largely unsuccessful, because every form Jean tries to assume (even her former male appearance) tends to come out "genie-fied" (BareYourMidriff is apparently mandatory) and always includes at least one item of her genie apparel, usually the hat.

* BroughtDownToNormal: The ''I Dream of Technicolor'' arc establishes this as the punishment for genies who defy the will of Haji (the genie leader). They are essentially turned into humans. This is shown with Eevi/Eva Braun when she interferes with the outcome of WW2, [[spoiler: and Rouyaa herself when she gives NASA more money for the space program]]. Their totems remain, and the next person to possess the totem becomes the new genie of that particular totem. [[spoiler: This is presumably why Jean became a genie- he took Rouyaa's totem.]]
