''[[http://www.kiwiblitz.com Kiwi Blitz]]'' is a {{webcomic}} by Mary Cagle (known elsewhere on the net as one of a number of variations of "Cube Watermelon"), updated weekly on Fridays, depending on how busy the watermelon is. She's also the creator of ''Webcomic/LetsSpeakEnglish'' and ''Webcomic/SleeplessDomain''.

The main character is 14-year-old Steffi Frohlich, who under the guise of "Blitz" fights crime in a future UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity using her bird-shaped MiniMecha, Kiwibot. She's assisted in this by her best friend Benzene who acts as MissionControl and later the RobotGirl 42. Of course, that's just what she does during her free time, when she's not busy with her day job as a junior Robot League combatant.

** At the beginning of Track 19...
--> [[spoiler:'''[[TheMole Jones]]''']]: Long story short, we'd like to pay you to kill Blitz for us.



* WorldWarIII: About all we know about it is that it happened, and it involved [[MiniMecha mecha]].
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: From what we've seen, the range of natural hair colors hasn't changed. However, dying your hair seems to be a big fashion trend among younger people, including both natural (Benzene dyes his brown hair [[MulticoloredHair two-toned]] blonde) and unnatural (Steffi dyes her blonde hair pink) colors. Then there are the wigs for those who don't have any hair of their own (such as [[RobotGirl 42]] and [[spoiler:Gear]]), which come in every color of the rainbow.
* YouJustToldMe: [[http://www.kiwiblitz.com/index.php?id=251 Chandra confirms she's working with Alter.]]
* YoungerThanTheyLook: Steffi mentions that Gear's face is too long for her to be seventeen like she claims.

* GoodProstheticEvilProsthetic: The villain Gear has a chainsaw like object as her left arm. So far, she is generally unsympathetic. Good guys [[spoiler:Steffi and Gear both have prosthetic limbs, but they mostly serve as non-weapons and they lost their body parts trying to save others.]]

* GroinAttack: Offscreen from Steffi to Ben during their combat training. She apologizes later, but he tells her that's a legitimate move to use against an enemy.
