The International [=ComicContinuity=] is an [[AllStarCast ensemble]] of [[EnsembleCast fifteen teenagers]] that have [[Main/SelfDeprecation wasted the]] [[WebcomicsLongRunners majority of their lives]] making [[ShamelessSelfPromoter some of the best]] multiple {{Story Arc}}s [[FanFic detailing]] [[WriteWhoYouKnow the lives]] of their [[OnlyKnownByTheirNickname renamed]] [[AuthorAvatar author]] [[DigitalAvatar avatars]] and [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters other created characters]] [[ShowAccuracyToyAccuracy represented]] by [[SpriteComic colored squares]] which in turn represent characters in [[AlternateUniverseFic another]] [[FanVerse universe]] inspired by a [[Toys/{{Bionicle}} dead toyline about storyline-centric plastic buildible action figures]] placed in outlined boxes and hosted on the [[BZPower largest internet-based forum]] dedicated to said dead toyline of [[{{Lego}} children's construction toys]].

It is notably different from other continuities on {{BZPower}} because it combined a large amount of pre-existing comic series (ten, originally) and made them co-exist together in one universe while still preserving all of their timeline. Since then, it has grown into a fifteen-member group with nineteen comic series and two multi-author ones.

* AuthorAvatar: As per {{BZPower}} tradition, all members have the main characters in their series who bear the authors' username and, to a bit of a lesser extension, the same personality. Although it does sound a bit cliche, the avatars do also carry a lot of their author's faults as well, so it does work.

* CensorBox: Occurs throughout the continuity, often with the box being signed either "Pohuaki" or "Black Six" (respectively the BZP Global Moderator in charge of the comics forum, and the head administrator of BZPower). Sees particularly heavy use in ''Nuparurocks' Comics'', most memorably when large portions of an ode to Megan Fox gets censored by Black Six to the point that [[UpToEleven the whole second verse is censored]].

** Averted with ''Nuparurocks' Comics: Season Beta'', however, which has currently the longest running daily strip in BZPower history and save for one or two weeks has not missed a day since.
* SeriousBusiness / StopHavingFunGuys: In response to how disappointingly rampant this attitude is around {{BZPower}}, especially its sprite comic community, the ICC practically has it in their mission statement to go out of its way to poke fun at and [[AvertedTrope avert]] this attitude. Of course, the practitioners of said attitude don't really see the humour.

** One of the founding tenets of the ICC was the goal of proving to the {{BZPower}} community at large that BIONICLE sprite comics don't universally suck, a common belief among the community of the forum.

* SymbolSwearing: As a result of BZPower's infamously heavy-handed word filter, there are countless instances of expletives being [[{{Bowdlerise}} bowdlerised]] into symbols.

** The current saga of ''Live, Learn and Lawsuits'' has Gavla and Eljay competing in an IronChef parody television special.

* ShoutOut: The comics regularly refer to other media: The Newsroom and [=VakamaTK's Comics=] have several references of Franchise/{{Pokemon}} and Series/CSIMiami, most of Blade's work includes homages to Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda and Franchise/MetalGear, Tapika's work has a lot of {{Webcomic/MSPaintAdventures}} references and Live, Learn and Lawsuits has a multitude of shout outs ranging from {{Series/HomeImprovement Home Improvement}} and ''Series/TheCosbyShow'' to [[Webcomic/EightBitTheater 8-Bit Theater]] and IronChef. Also, ''Taone Nui Offline Game'' is probably pretty much going to be one huge homage to VideoGame/EarthBound, WebAnimation/YouTubePoop, the history of the BZP comics forum, and pretty much [[AuthorAppeal anything else the ICC members like]].

* FantasticRacism: Part of the reason Gnuklear - and later, a large slew of parody [[HeroFactory heroes]] - was devised was as a vehicle to play with and mock [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation the prevalence of this theme]] in HeroFactory.

* PaletteSwap: ''BIONICLES ADVENTURS COMIXS'' lampshades how [[HeroFactory Von Nebula]] and [[Bionicle Hydraxon]] use the same mask, in that Hydraxon is a crude recolouring of Von Nebula. The same is done with [[Bionicle Berix and Ackar]].

* BritishAccent: Zakitano is said to talk and sound like [[Series/DoctorWho the Doctor]].
** Tapika and Janaro as well, seeing as how they are actually from England.

The International [=ComicContinuity=] is a large group of fifteen {{BIONICLE}} webcomic authors that banded together to create a [[SharedUniverse shared]] [[FanVerse universe]]. They mainly consist of {{Sprite Comic}}s stemming from the BIONICLE mythos detailing the lives of their {{Author Avatar}}s. While the continuity itself only officially formed on January 3rd, 2010, the series themselves go farther back, two of them as far as 2006.

* [[PacManFever Pac-Man Fever]]: Averted, as many specific, current-gen games are mentioned and played with, always being depicted on the correct system. This is due to most of the members being avid gamers, and many of the games mentioned are the ones they are spending a lot of time playing with at the moment (time which then [[AuthorExistenceFailure distracts from comic work]]). [[{{Pokemon}} Pokémon]] and [[SuperMarioBros Mario]] games usually are at the forefront of this, with Videogame/EarthBound references starting a small rise, thanks in no part to [[MemeticMutation McGyiyg]].
